I love taking screenshots of games and using them on the web/social media etc. On my windows HTPC this is fairly straightforward. Not quite sure how to do this on RPi or if it’s even possible.
I can see the option for screenshot location in retroarch.cfg. Any brainiacs out there have any clue how I would get this working?
I also thought I could save it somewhere that has an SMB share like /roms/screenshots/, then use something like dropbox in a creative way to keep an eye on that folder on the network and move updates to my file server (which is synced to everything else). I’m not even sure how I would enter the directory for screenshots if I wanted to save locally.
So, the end result would be I would press the button for screenshot on my controller I like left analog ‘click’ then within a few moments the screenshot would be available on my phone via plex or dropbox or some other file-accessing service.FloobMember10/27/2015 at 20:21Post count: 1629
/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch.cfg file, edit this line to read
screenshot_directory = /home/pi/RetroPie/roms/screenshots
(Make sure you have removed the hash character #)
Obviously you will need to create the screenshots directory, do this as user Pi, or at least make sure Pi has read/write access to it.
Then It should be accessible via windows. You could always write a basic batch file to move the contents to your dropbox directory.pommeParticipant10/28/2015 at 04:10Post count: 15
Well, this totally works, thanks.
Is it normal for the emulation to pause about 1 second during the screenshot?pommeParticipant10/28/2015 at 16:47Post count: 15
One more thing. I’ve got a few pixels of garbage on the top and bottom of my screenshots. This isn’t a huge deal, but if there’s a way to correct it, I’d like to.
