RetroArch & EmulationStation addons for RetroPlayer (LibreELEC)
#1
I packed a couple of frontend addons for RetroPlayer, tested on LibreELEC Testbuilds for RPi.

Just download repo and install them from it: https://goo.gl/m36qLT

RetroArch addon scans addons folder for any retroplayer libretro core installed and creates a symlink to it into retroarch's cores folder. Then exits kodi and launches retroarch. It includes gamepads configs and core infos. Since kodi is stopped performance is a little better than using retroplayer (specially in low power devices such as RPi) and all settings/options are available in menus.

EmulationStation addon uses RetroArch passing to it core name and rom file (also this can be used by other frontends like IARL, AEL...)

Logs are placed in /storage/.kodi/temp/

Feedback is welcome.

UPDATE: RetroArch in LE9 for RPi needs additional library you can download from here: https://github.com/bite-your-idols/Games...pha-lib.7z
Then paste unzipped lib folder into game.retroarch folder.

UPDATE2: Since RPi Leia testbuild #0714 controllers with motion sensors (Dualshock 3, Dualshock 4...) have a weird behavior in Kodi so they can not be used in retroarch.
