  1. Regional GameEx Users Clubs

    In all seriousness, I love this idea. I see recalbox has recently added retroarch online multiplayer stuff and I was watching it thinking - "damn we need to get that onto GameEx." Maybe I was just looking for an excuse to code another plugin..dunno!? Let's get a GameEx MarioKart tournament started asap! Maybe a weekender to kill the time difference?

    Here you go: + bring it on. The UK virtually created home gaming so we'll thrash to pants off you all.... Unfortunately, there's only me and @simbamame in the UK club at the moment, but I'll get the Queen to give some others a bell.. Oh, and I don't have xbox. Back to playstation for this gen. However, how about a Retroarch online tourney?

  6. How to send key presses (keyboard) before and after

    What's the program? If it takes it, it might be better to send it command line instructions via "launch before" and "launch after" rather than use SendKeys
  7. Jumped into the Pi frenzy

    Personally, I use Recalbox. It's got a few less bells and whistles than retropie, but I like it. Think the main difference is themes and video snaps, but on systems with limited storage, I prefer not to have videos filling the space. https://www.recalbox.com/ Oh, if you also use recalbox, you can also use my windows app which greatly simplifies game management: https://sites.google.com/view/magoarcade/software/recalboxer?authuser=0 Working hard on the next release which also includes ability to manage the metadata from the app - this also uses Selph Scraper to batch scrape and its own scraper for individual game scraping.
