I run Batocera on a PC which already has Windows installed. I don’t want to change the current partition layout but none of the partition is big enough to store all roms.
So, I have to put roms on different partitions, and customize /userdata/system/custom.sh accordingly. I use “/etc/init.d/S31emulationstation reload” (“reload” is same as “restart” in this case) at the end of the script to force ES game list update.
While it works, the solution is not a nice one. Every time I boot into Batocera, the sceen goes black for a second time when it restarts ES.
The ES Menu -> Games Settings -> Update Games Lists is actually the function I’m looking for. Is there an equivalent commond line, so that I don’t have to restart ES in the script?
