    I’ve been thinking of ways to add music to ES while I’m browsing through games. I was reading over some documentation, and it appears that the build of ES we’re using only supports the scrollsound. But it sounds like recalbox may have this issue solved for at least the last year or so.

    https://github.com/recalbox/recalbox-emulationstation

    You can see the note for the commit at the top of that page. How do we get this functionality into the version of ES that we’re using?

    The ES forums are no help, unless you’re looking for viagra or cialis. lol

    I do have an idea of how to add music via brute force (ie., shell scripts) but I’d rather not use it as it’s cumbersome and will break anytime I install or update an emulator,

    Yeah, i think there are generally two ways to go about it: invent the wheel, or steal it.

    Given that Recalbox already has solved this problem, I would tend to go towards the latter option. However, Recalbox has seen MANY more commits over the last year, so the overall delta in terms of dependencies might be rather big.

    I am planning to do some more digging, and see what is used for sound handling in de current ES, because i think its different from what is used in Recalbox (which also supports *.ogg files).

    Also, What are our requirements for this function?
    A single background track for all systems?
    That seems like a reasonable starting point.

    Either a single background track, or maybe an m3u playlist I think would be plenty sufficient.
