ALSA should work in 100% of cases, which is why creating an asound.conf should be all that's needed. The latest generic build might have the bug mentioned by 5schatten though which leads to a corrupted retroarch.cfg. Not sure, but I'll do a rebuild soon and upload that. My latest avx2 build is updated though if you have a CPU not from the stone age.
You need asound.conf.
Tell me what to change in the python code to accept arguments and I'll modify it. As 5schatten points out, there's nothing stopping you from creating your own scripts to use with launchers etc as well.
Yes, I read about those plans but I don't think anyone has been willing to actually work on it. The internal scraper works good enough now, and it supports some systems that sselphs' doesn't. It doesn't support video previews though. RetroPie uses scripts to set it up indeed.
It does? Since when?
I created a working launcher for FS-UAE to test previously, it's not that hard to look at the Dolphin loader and replace commands with fs-uae. I decided against spending time on it for the above mentioned reasons.
As for RetroArch, I'll just bump the version as I don't follow the release versions anyway. Don't know if the version in the last release has the issue or not.
The path to autoconfigs should be /tmp/autoconfig which is an overlay of /usr/share/retroarch/autoconfig and /storage/.config/retroarch/autoconfig.
Regarding sound, if you create an asound.conf then any ALSA application will use the same device you specify there.
Indeed, some of the features I have added are poorly documented which is due to my laziness I was thinking to create a settings addon for these options but never get around to do so.
Paths are the same as in LAKKA, so you could look at their documentation to get an idea of how to do certain things. Ideally everything should already be baked in though. I wouldn't recommend using the online updater, as there have been cases where some of the cores have been dependent on certain versions of external shared libraries that are not included in this OS. Then again, nightly builds of cores can potentially bring useful features, so it all depends. Trying to keep up with the latest git versions can be chaotic and buggy, so once a stable version is reached it's probably best to stay on it a while.
It is possible to do it in RetroArch as well, RobLoach has made this launcher core that starts the external Dolphin from within RetroArch. You could create a specific launcher for each of the external applications as well, but I think stuff like switching to 50Hz / PAL mode would be problematic in KMS mode. Probably doable in X11/GL mode though but takes time to do and I find that Emulationstation covers the frontend needs just fine.
I doubt it, rar is the choice for newsgroup uploaders not content providers
There's absolutely no reason to keep videos rar'ed up.
LE still fits within 512MB. Personally I like to reserve 1GB+ to fit other boot options.
It supports whatever game controllers the Linux 4.14 kernel supports. I recommend the dualshock 4, works great.
I did stop including Docker, so the addon is needed. That file isn't needed for anything per se, it's just a way to start pcsx2 outside of Emulationstation. I use it to start the emulator from an SSH terminal.
Every game suffer from input lag, even strategy games although they would be playable. Any fastpaced game is unplayable for me. Pressing a button should result in near instant action. Having to send the button press to the remote computer, then wait for the updated screen to be sent back is obviously not a good solution.
Moonlight and other streaming options just doesn't cut it due to input latency. Docker is really quite easy when you get into it.
32-bit uefi issue perhaps? Think there are some threads about this.
