I am currently trying to add some games for FS-UAE to Lutris but I am a bit stuck as to where I can add FS-UAE specific options to the game or the runner so that I can tweak the emulator to play nice with the game.
I am talking about these options here https://fs-uae.net/docs/options that are usually part of a config file related to a game. I saw that some things can already be selected in the GUI, but quite a few things like controller assignment or system tweaks are not included in the runner or game config.
Is there a guide on how to add those values to the yml files and in which format? I tried the wiki and the forum search but nothing specific came up.
bumping it after 5 days. Hope someone can help out and help me a tad here
Lutris config only allows to set options from those selected to be in the UI. What command line option would you like to add to FS-UAE?
The usual things to nudge some games into working properly with FS-UAE
to define which controller is connected to which port, especially handy if you have more than one controller or if you need to switch the mouse over to port 0 and vice versa. Also some games require to have the mouse and joystick in the other port.
Same as above
This is to control how fast the virtual floppy is being read. default is turbo and has to be turned down if a game does not play well with increase read times due to timing issues hardcoded in the game
accuracy https ://fs-uae.net/docs/options/accuracy (wasn’t able to add more than two links)
To be able to run it on slower machines or to make some games run at all.
This is old and I don’t know if the OP just gave up or figured it out by themselves, but I was looking for information about this and didn’t find it clearly set out anywhere online so:
If you want to manually configure FS-UAE under Lutris, the first place to look is ~/.local/share/fs-uae/fs-uae.log
In my case that told me the default $EXE directory is ~/.local/share/lutris/runers/fs-uae which is the first place it looks for a Config.fs-uae file.
It also told me that the default $DOCUMENTS directory is ~/Documents and it looks for config files including Default.fs-uae and Host.fs-uae in ~/Documents/FS-UAE/Configurations
Another useful directory is ~/.local/share/lutris/runners/fs-uae/share/fs-uae/input where you can change controller bindings by editing the relevant .conf files.
