    Having a blast setting up the pi with retropie so far. Got the software up and running fine and i’m currently in the process of building an enclosure with buttons, LEDs and a 16*2 lcd.

    Is there a command i can run in python that will return things like:
    1. Currently played game
    2. Currently emulated console
    3. CPU temperature

    4. Oh and is it possible to have an external button connected with GPIO exit out of a game and back into the emulation station?

    5. Finally, more of an Python question: How can i have a program start up on boot up?

    Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated 🙂




    1) I guess you could read the gamelist.xml that shows last played game.

    Hi Nharka did you have any luck with getting the currently played game to display on your LCD. I am looking to build something similar and I’m trying to work out parsing the xml file on gameslist.xml to get the rom title, I’ve got a few ideas to try when I finish work but if you have managed to succed in this if you wouldnt mind sharing how you did it
