Lets play FloppyBird

Open Retroarch on your gameshell
Select Load Cores
Select Download Core
Select Chailove
Quit Retroarch

Connect your device to your gameshell with SSH

cd ~/.config/retroarch/cores
(If you use another folder to save your downloaded cores navigate there)

mv /home/cpi/apps/emulators

cd ~/games/

git clone --depth=1 FloppyBird

cd FloppyBird

rm -rf .git

nano ~/apps/launcher/Menu/GameShell/
(change FloppyBird if you want another name in the menu)


retroarch -L /home/cpi/apps/emulators/ /home/cpi/games/FloppyBird/main.chai

Save and quit

Move the icon to ~/apps/launcher/skin/default/Menu/GameShell
Make sure the icon has the same name as the .sh file. In this case FloppyBird.png

Reboot and have fun :smiley:


hahahah it’s working, thank you

Indeed, also here.

Obviously it should be ~/apps/launcher/skin/default/Menu/GameShell.

Thank you! It worked like a charm! The icon has to be converted to png format from jpeg.


Thats odd, i’m pretty sure i uploaded the file as a .png. When i’m at my laptop, i’ll upload the png file again.

Yes it downloads as a jpg, but if you just rename the download to png it works …

What a sweet thing!! I was so addicted to this game in college.


How do I save and quit after typing the code for the sh file?

CTRL-X Respond “y” @ prompt and then hit return to save.
