Directly launching games?
« on: October 23, 2012, 07:07:14 PM »

I have been writing an emulator launcher for Android, and I would like to use your emulator to launch N64 games.

However, most emulators I have used so far provide the "ACTION_VIEW" intent filter for launching games, which yours does not, at least from what I can see in the manifest.

Is there a way to structure an intent to Mupen64Plus AE so that it will launch a specific ROM file?

Thank you for your help.

Then it would also be awesome to have an option for making direct homescreen shortcuts to games... :)
