Add OPK Files

OPK (Open PacKage) files are archive files that contains emulators, standalone games, applications or utilities along with all their associated resources like icons packed into a single file that does not require installation to be able to run them.


In the current (2.0.0) release of the FunKey-OS, the OPK files are only available for the gmenu2x launcher, and not in RetroFE.

7-Zip can be used to extract OPK files, and Open Package Creator (v1.1.2) is a useful tool if you want to re-package an OPK or customize icons, add additional games and much more.

Connect your FunKey S console to your computer and add OPK files as simply as you would do it with a simple USB memory stick:

Eject Drive Eject cleanly the USB drive from your computer
