LED Marquee Project and Need for Event Scripting within HyperPie 2

Post by AlLinke » Mon Aug 12, 2019 3:16 am

Hi, working on an LED marquee product. The idea is to have a dynamic LED matrix marquee that will change (image or scrolling text) based on the selected game or emulator. It works now using RetroPie and runcommand scripts, here's a demo

Full project docs here http://pixelcade.org

Right now though it can only change the LED marquee when a game is launched and exited. Would like to take it farther and be able to change the game on game scrolling through the HyperPie front end or other events too like screensaver. Would welcome any ideas / hooks that are available to achieve this.

Note this additional functionality works fine on Windows based front ends (HyperSpin, GameEx, etc.) using the LEDBlinky plug-in but LEDBlinky is windows only.

Thanks in advance for any help.
