@merlinux I'm going to include this patch, I'll do my best to track upstream for any possible issues. But given the length of time for any updates... yeah.

I made a patch to fix ES in built scrapper which doesnt work with PSP anymore. I think this is due to a recent change of thegamesdb API platform name for the PSP... Only a guess as I have been using ES for a short time... Herdinger hasnt been merging anything on github for the last 6 months so I didnt even bother making a PR there. Best bet is to include the patch in the PKGBUILD itself.

Anyways here is the code :

From what I see, config files are put into ~/.config/emulationstation

So all I did is:
$ cd
$ ln -s .config/emulationstation .emulationstation

done.

Same here, isnt creating a config file on first start and complains about it.

parkerlreed commented on 2016-06-21 19:20

Same here. Maybe file a bug?

Does this actually work for anyone? Running it (without an existing config folder) just complains that it can't load the config (which obviously doesn't exist yet as I've not run the program) and it exits.

Is it broken currently?

shaggytwodope commented on 2016-06-13 03:15

@Enverex sorry about that, I've updated the url.

Enverex commented on 2016-06-12 22:13

I agree with OJaksch, probably time to move over to Herdingers' fork. Aloshi's doesn't even compile for me anymore.

EDIT: My mistake, you have, but the "url" field hasn't been updated.

OJaksch commented on 2016-04-17 09:38

Due to long inactivity at Aloshis Emulationstation it might have some need at some time to switch over to Herdingers fork: <https://github.com/Herdinger/EmulationStation>.

I had emulationstation segfault on startup if you have a config file. (Although nobody else running Arch could seem to reproduce this)

I found a workaround by downloading the Windows zip for EmulationStation, and dropping the themes folder in ~/.emulationstation. This caused it to work fine.
