Note about “Set as bootgame”:
This will allow to select a single game to start at boot, useful for arcade systems or for handhelds if you have a favorite game and what to launch it on boot.
This game is launched by ES before it loads the game gamelists, so any stats recorded by ES will saved (e.g. times played, last played, etc)

Select the game and open the “Advance Game Options” and then set “Launch This Game At Startup” to “On”

  • After the game is ended (via hotkey+start) normal boot will continue.
  • Not all systems support this (e.g, ports).
  • Any retroarch settings (shaders, filters, bezels, splash, etc) will be respected.
  • To remove bootgame, select the game that is currently set to boot and set “Launch This Game At Startup” to “Off”, or go into “System Settings > Developer > Stop Launching This Game At Startup” Fixes #728
