Adding custom EMUs #79
I just tried out the latest commit which allows you to add your own emulators. How do I specify where I have everything installed? In the Emulators text file is a small example, but the "command" field is left blank. Could you explain a little further what needs to be done and how in order to set up custom emus?
Edit: Peeked at the log file and it states that no emulator was found, ignoring.
Yeah, the feature is pretty new, and I definitely need to add more to it before it is 'ready' to ship. That being said, it should be functional if you follow these steps
Go to emulators.txt, and add a 3 lines as follows
When you have the emulator set up, you next go to consoles.txt. Find the console you want, and set 'emulator' to be the name of the emulator in emulators.txt.
With everything set up, your files should look like this

Awesome! Worked perfectly. Also, a suggestion would be to tell the user which emulators were added when ice is run. Currently the console displays nothing except the "downloading grid images" thing when ice is ran and emulators are added. In the log it says that certain emulators were skipped over, and even displaying THAT in the console would be nice, since theres no indication of what has been added or if there has been any problem adding a specific emulator or something like that.
I like that idea a lot actually.
I will make a separate issue for this.
