Running retroArch without GUI

Hey all I’ve been googling and I can’t seem to find any answer to my question:

How do I call/start a game using the RetroArch app? In other words, can I start a game without having the RetroArch GUI? I’m making my own app and will have a GUI but would like to be able to call, like you can on windows with the command line, from my Android 10 app.


yes, you can do that using the android “intents”

Thanks for the reply @hunterk.

Would you be able to provide an example of how it would look?

Also please bear in mind of this issue as you may encounter it.

What u want to do has been talked about and written over at hyperspin forumns and launchbox forumns as well…just make sure ur app is compatible with android 11 …as of right now Android 11 has killed hyperspin, which is why I haven’t updated yet
