Launchbox on Raspberry Pi 3

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if there is any development on Launchbox for the Raspberry Pi 3, does Launchbox/Bigbox support wine? I'm thinking of having a Raspberry Pi build of launchbox.

 

Thanks, Thevoododoctor

Closest thing I've found is RetroPie.  It's been the easiest way to set up an RPi3 (I think), though I haven't touched mine since diving into LaunchBox ;)

This may become a thing at some point in the future but don't hold your breath waiting for it. There has been some discussion and interest in a Linux version but right now that is not a viable option. Jason has too many things to work on still for the Windows version to spend time trying to code up a Linux or an Android version. Something like this would require hiring and paying another programmer and that wouldn't be cheap and then of course you have to look at the potential user base which is not all the big when it comes to Linux sadly.

There is also Attract Mode or Lakka if you are looking for Raspberry Pi frontends.

Both of those are great Linux options. Lakka is also super light weight which is awesome for minimal set ups.

LaunchBox / BigBox on Raspberry Pi would be great.  I know that it's not a trivial thing to do, though.

I went with RetroPie, and wrote an export script to reuse the metadata and pics from Launchbox. 

Ah, man... this is a great idea.  I'll try your script tonight.
