Shortcut to specific game?

Hey guys :slight_smile:

I’m starting to stream games from Yuzu on my PC to an android handheld (RP3).
I use GFE on the PC and moonlight on the client side.

I can stream games alright but the fact that I need to setup controls every time (and then chose the game I want to play) is quite inconvenient on the smaller screen.

I was wondering if the following was possible:

  1. Can I create a launcher/shortcut for a specific game? Possibly passing parameters like the controller profile and fullscreen or something like that…

  2. the RP3 lacks both home and capture buttons. All other buttons are already assigned to their corresponding function (select for minus and start for plus). Is there any way I could assign a combination or something to home? (the only remaining buttons on the RP3 are vol up/down and Android-home but yuzu doesn’t detect these.)

Hotkeys in Yuzu seem to require the home button.

Thank you very much in advance for your help and advice :slight_smile:

In order for us to provide better support, we need to see the log generated by yuzu. This guide will walk you through how you can obtain the log file: Getting Log Files - yuzu

I found this:

So I guess part of my questions are answered. (It would be nice if Yuzu could provide an easier way to to that. I believe a lot of people would like it).

I don’t understand what -g does?

  • yuzu.exe "path_to_game" - Launches a game at path_to_game
  • yuzu.exe -g "path_to_game" - Launches a game at path_to_game

And of course this is obsolete since the folder structure in Yuzu seem to have changed since that video was released :sweat_smile:

The user argument doesn’t seem to work in my hands (the shortcut launches yuzu and prompts for user selection). Once I select the user, the game starts.

Is there any way to simulate a missing button on the controller ?

My controller has

  • D pad
  • L/R joysticks with L3/R3
  • L shoulder
  • ZL trigger
  • R shoulder
  • ZR trigger
  • Face buttons (ABXY)
  • start
  • select
    (volume buttons not detected by yuzu)
    (android-home button not detected by yuzu)
  • NO home button
  • NO capture button

@german77 explained to me that in order for the -u argument to work as expected, the option to prompt for user on game boot should be disabled.

Unfortunately for me, this means I can either launch yuzu normally and select the user at the beginning of each game OR make custom shortcuts for each user (either to launch yuzu and select the game afterwards or a shortcut for a specific game). This not as convenient as I wish it was.

It would be nice if we could have both working without conflict or that when prompt for user on game boot is disabled, we could select a (different) user profile in the right-click menu of the game.

worked for me, thank you.
i’ve got my pc set up like my steam deck, and now i can easily add individual roms.
just one more question, after yuzu.exe "path_to_game" what argument would i use to make the game launch in fullscreen, would it be -f?
i need the games to launch in fullscreen. thanks again!! :smiley:
