Well i can send you just a screenshot of the plugins, there is no Game Browser Classic plugin to install under the normal Plugins.

 

I can see only on the Windows Media Center Plugins Tab - The Game Browser Classic - but this is not what we want to use and is described here, or not?

Okay, you cannot install EMC plug-ins from the server.  They are there for display only - and, actually, to provide a way for 3rd parties to be able to charge for them.

 

If you want game browser in EMC, you have to install and configure the server plug-in and then also install the EMC plug-in from within EMC.

So Emby Classic (EMC) is a synonym for the emby frontend in media player classic. I was thinking it means the classical frontend with browser. 

 

Now i get it. thx

That documentation pertains to the downloaded desktop version of Emby Theater:

Please let us know if this helps. Thanks.

I use Emby primarily on an Nvidia Shield streamer running Android.  Emby Theater is only for PC.  Does this mean I cannot use Emby and Gamebrowser to launch games on the Android platform?

Correct.  Launching games on the Shield is not currently supported.

 

Thanks.

Hi, what problem are you having?

I'm at the stage of trying to get Emby Theater launching games, but when PCSX2 start, it says the CDVD failed to open

 

 

I haven't done the Command line arguements, as it confuses me, plus does the games need to be ISO's or is bin files ok?

The command line arguments are important so you can't skip that.

Alrighty, could you give me some examples how it should look like?. From there I should be able to make sense of my setup needs :)

Have you researched the command line that PCSX2 requires? That's the part you'll need to handle. Emby Theater gives you the ability to launch an external program, but it doesn't know anything about the program that you're launching, so you have to fill in those details.

Hi,

 

I try to run N64 Rom on Windows 10 with the downloaded Emby Theater.

I use Project64 v2.32.202 (latest).

I followed the guide and input:

C:\Program Files (x86)\Project64\Project64.exe (as Player Path)

and

"E:\Games\Roms\N64"

also tried:

E:\Games\Roms\N64

and

"{rom}"

for the command line argument

I got an empty error windows with just an "ok" button

 

I did something wrong?

 

Thank you

Yeah it's supposed to be:

Project64.exe "[ROMPATH]\[ROMFILE]"

So for my version it's supposed to be:

Project64.exe "E:\Games\Roms\N64\{rom}"

 

I tried countless of options and I always see that stupid error box.
