RetroPie alternatives that don't require dual-booting?

Fri Mar 17, 2017 12:37 am

I'm only interested in emulators for those 3-4 platforms that I have legally obtained ROMs (mainly MS-DOS and Sega Genesis). I want to avoid dual-booting, and would prefer to run these within Pixel. What are my options?

Retropie can be installed on a standard Pixel distribution, you dont have to dual-boot.

A large number of the emulators used in retropie can be launched from a terminal within Pixel.
