Custom music during gameplay (ArkOS)
from to on 27 Feb 2024 03:40

I’ve seen it asked (on Reddit) how to play custom background music while playing games on ArkOS. I wanted to share how I do it, in case others want to try it as well. I’m sure these instructions could be modified slightly for other Linux handhelds.

Now start_music and stop_music options are available in the ‘Ports’ section of EmulationStation. Running start_music starts a shuffled playlist of everything you put in that music folder. stop_music stops the music. Of course, you’ll want to turn off the native background music in whatever game your playing too :)

EDIT: Updated the nohup line to dump outputs to the null output rather than to file (which could eventually grow to be large).
