Kids enabled "Hide System View" - how do I get it back?

  • Hey all! I built a recalbox for the kids to play at the cottage, but they were messing around in the menus and enabled "Hide System View," and now we're stuck in the favourites menu and can't see any other systems.

    Is there a way to disable this and go back to normal? We're at the cottage so no internet, wifi or other computers (or keyboards), and typing this from a cell.

    Help and thanks!

    @politbureau You need to have access to the network to open the recalbox.conf and set emulationstation.hidesystemview=1 back to 0.

    I don't know if it is possible without internet, MAYBE, if you use a Smartphone with Android, there is an option to share the internet (if you edit the network with the same name and password that you use at home), and use an explorer app files (like CX File Explorer) that give access to the network, but, I never tried, it is just an assumption.

    What is your Hardware? If it is an Rpi, it is possible to put the SD card in the Smartphone, and navigate to the file recalbox.conf...
