    I use my Raspberry Pi on a low resolution composite screen, but the default theme in Emulation Station is difficult to read. I have been working on a theme with easier to read text, but I keep running into the following errors when I apply the theme(Shown in the console via ssh):

    lvl0: from theme “/etc/emulationstation/themes/simple4/gb/theme.xml”
    Included file “./../simple.xml” not found! (resolved to “/etc/emulationstation/themes/simple4/gb/../simple.xml”)

    At the same time, Emulation Station crashes and returns to the console. I have been testing the theme on a Windows installation of Emulation Station, and I haven’t had any crashes. Moreover, another theme that uses a different font (piulator by phrazelle) works fine on the Raspberry Pi. Based on the errors, do I need to do anything to the font file I am using, or look for a specific type of font? I have attached a working font (NEWTOW_.TTF from piulator) and the font that I am trying to use (CHICAGO.ttf) below.

    Did you get this worked out? I’m curious as to what the issue was if you solved it.

    I was able to get the theme working when running Emulationstation at a very low resolution (160 by 120), but resolutions like 320 x 240 or 640 x 480 crash after selecting a system. On the lower resolutions, some new errors came up. After looking at these errors, it seems like this is because of the increased text sizes and changed theme images (using too much RAM? Most of the new errors referred to glyph size). I will strip my theme down to only text to see if that fixes the errors.

    My initial thought would be that there are glyph’s in your game titles that are not available in the font. But I’m not too sure. I’ve had the issue before, but I changed to a different font that still works with the design and it’s all gone now.
