"System" for movies?


Recommended Posts

 Sorry second post and another question. On my modular build, I was wondering how possible it would be to launch a movie? I wanted to custom theme my rig with a few of my favorite flicks on it as well such as gladiator, count of monte cristo, and shawshank redemption. And perhaps some disney/ghibli flicks for the girls.

Yup, just add an emulator but point it to your movie player of choice and assign a platform. Import your movie file, assign it to the platform you have you movie player "emulator" set to.

Like DOS76 said though, you will need to get the metadata and art yourself since there is no scraper for it. Maybe Jason some day can add imbd and thetvdb scraping.

No problem. Thanks for being so n00b friendly and helpful! Ive noted that the in-game automation feature doesnt seem to want to close vlc player, so im going to look into ahk scripting. 
But the issue im having now is how to make vlc auto launch in fullscreen so i don have to manually add -f commandline ro  every filedit:e.


edit: figured it out. default command line under emulators.
