How to add shortcuts to games in standalone emulators?

Hey , i read this guide https://github.com/clockworkpi/launcher/wiki/Create-your-own-GAME-ICONS-that-launch-games-directly-and-create-additional-FOLDERS

and it explains how to do launchers for retroarch but how do i do them for PCSX2 standalone and other standalone emulators?

this bit here

retroarch -L /home/cpi/.config/retroarch/cores/fb_alpha_libretro.so /home/cpi/games/MAME/galaga.zip

How do i make it into game launchers for PCSX or for pocketsnes or other standalones if possible

you dont have v0.4 image right?

in v0.4 os image ,we included pcsx standalone, pocketsnes,you can have them rightway

If you want to make your own standalone emulator launcher item, all you need to do is make a right action.config,upload the binary zip(or else) to somewhere can be directly downloaded

Example(in v0.4 image):

in ~/apps/Menu/20_Retro\ Games/

you can checkout the action.config of each one,

like pcsx and pocketsnes

Pcsx

ROM=/home/cpi/games/PCSX
ROM_SO=/home/cpi/apps/emulators/pcsx -cdfile
EXT=bin,cue,img,mdf,pbp,toc,cbn,m3u,ccd
LAUNCHER=
TITLE=Pcsx Roms
SO_URL=https://github.com/cuu/Pcsx/raw/master/pcsx.zip

PocketSNES

ROM=/home/cpi/games/PocketSNES
ROM_SO=/home/cpi/apps/emulators/PocketSNES
EXT=sfc,zip
LAUNCHER=
TITLE=PocketSNES Roms
SO_URL=https://github.com/cuu/emulators/raw/master/PocketSNES.zip

so basicly ,ROM_SO became the binary ,and the LAUNCHER just empty

OK, I am on 0.4 , i don’t think you get what i actually meant-

I mean launchers juts for specific GAMES. So it will just launch a specific ps1 game from a launcher. I already can make launchers for the emulators. Like if i just want to launch Crash Bandicoot with its own launcher.

If you can launch the specific game from SSH, simply put the command into the ROM_SO line and leave ROM empty. Usually, just add the ROM path after the emulator path.

Yeah idk waht you mean exactly but i have standalone launchers working for

GPSP
pocketSnes
and
PIcodrive

(all standalone)

but for PCSX, its not as easy. The same method doesnt work when i tried to make a launcher for that
