Xpiratez port for retropie!
« on: January 02, 2019, 12:48:47 pm »
Hello and happy new year! I was just thinking: it may be even possible have xpitatez portings for reteopie, for win, linux and mac? That would be very very cool!

I was just figuring out if may be even possible (for lunix) throw anninstallation on the sd where retropie is installed and run from there. So any chances or it is impossible?

No offense, but what would be the point of "porting" something tht runs natively on the systems you request it to be ported to? The whole point of OXC is not have to use emulators (i.e. dosbox) to run the game. Retropie is essentially a collection of emulators with a nice UI.

No problem, just a quick way to play the game on a huge screen, without thinkering too much with system configuration and headaches. Anyway still think would be really cool 8)

I don't understand - is there something that prevents you from running the game on your system?
