Another suggestion for your theme:
I use the nbba theme at the moment (not es, not ns).
Where the “es” theme provides a little too much information (all the description of the game), for me the nbba theme provides a little too less.
I would like to see the games list on the right, just like it is.
On the upper left a large picture of the gamebox.
And on the lower left side just a few informations (at best in a small font, if possible)
– Release date
Because of the huge amount of games its sometimes hard to find a 2 player shooter for example.
Altough I/we probably know many games, but I also discovered many which I don’t know. This would ease the searching process.
Just an idea…sekaziParticipant07/20/2015 at 01:31Post count: 68
One of the other themes I have been working on has a limited amount of information displayed. It is pretty much your list minus the publisher. I just have been trying to decide how I want to display the controller maps in one of the corners.
The default theme I do agree has a lot of open space not used so I will look into incorporating some additional information.sekaziParticipant07/21/2015 at 04:12Post count: 68sekaziParticipant07/23/2015 at 06:21Post count: 68
So I have been simplifying the theme code and decided to give this a try. It looks good but kind of awkward when viewing the handheld systems.
My rpi seems to be running it without issue so no memory problems that I can tell. I will likely provide options with and without the system shown.
I tried increasing the background images to a higher resolution just below 720p but my rpi immediately freezes on boot again so I will be sticking with the 576p images. I still have yet to test on my rpi 1b.
I have changed all of the regular bg.png files to a jpg file to save a whole lot of space.
I was thinking about the controls preview and I think what I may end up doing is showing the controls after you select a game. It would be brief but not sure of any other way. I have thought about having the first game listed show the controls but that i feel is too much work and who knows what es will do when you try to launch the entry.
I will likely make another release this weekend.smnplParticipant07/25/2015 at 20:11Post count: 4
Really, best theme I’ve seen so far. I just registered just for this (=
If you are doing a new release, please consider including a theme for C64 as well.

The first post has been updated with the v1 release.
I wanted to make some other changes but the number of changes already made was getting difficult to go without a release.smnplParticipant07/26/2015 at 10:30Post count: 4
If I could wish for one more logo, maybe you could do a “Steam” one. I’m using emulationstation on windows and have some Steam games linked in there… Though, I can understand if not as it isn’t a console per se.
Again thanks for the cool stuff!sekaziParticipant07/26/2015 at 15:27Post count: 68
Raspberry Pi has Limelight which I have yet to figure out which allows you to stream steam games from the raspberry pi.
Do you want a pack of higher resolution images? I have a set of 1080p images and higher resolution game consoles.smnplParticipant07/26/2015 at 15:31Post count: 4
Higher resolution is always a good thing. Like bluetooth. Everything is better with bluetooth =)sekaziParticipant07/26/2015 at 16:03Post count: 68
I have added a link in the download in the first post to download the high resolution images.
How does the steam section look like in ES on windows?smnplParticipant07/26/2015 at 16:21Post count: 4
Well, originally there is no Steam section. I just added a custom system to the systems.xml … So there is no actual existing look for it.
I’d just say somewhat like ports, but using the Steam Logo somehow. (Logo for example: https://media2.giga.de/2013/11/Square_Steam_Logo.png)AnonymousInactive07/27/2015 at 12:36Post count: 25
Great work, but the NTSC/US version of the SNES looks like s**t :(
How about the PAL version?gamer-frankParticipant07/28/2015 at 01:57Post count: 1
This is a great looking theme.
Would you consider adding a theme for the Sega CD, Intellivision, and Atari 5200/7800 systems? I can only imagine how much time it must take to do this, so please only consider my request if you have the time.sekaziParticipant07/28/2015 at 03:32Post count: 68

Really the only time consuming part of the whole thing is finding the console without a controller attached and finding a very clean high resolution controller or outline of a controller.
Sega CD was already on my list as someone I know wants Sega CD on his raspberry pi.
I didnt get around to the 5200 and 7800 because I could not get the emulators to work on my pi but I would like to get it to work.

The first post was updated with the new release. I went ahead and built new zip files to make organization easier for me.
I still kind of want to redo the Atari 7800 buttons on the controller.herbfargusMember08/09/2015 at 03:56Post count: 1858
This theme looks really good! Once we get the repo set up for themes I think that yours would be a great addition.eralParticipant08/12/2015 at 04:20Post count: 2
I was just looking to replace the default theme in es, and found your theme. This is absolutely fantastic.
I did have some issues initially es would crash when attempting to load the theme. I found some of the pathing in the theme.xml files was not accurate for my es installation. I resolved this my making the paths relative to the .xml files.
Now it works perfectly, would you consider adding a Nintendo DS theme?

I would be interested in knowing what pathing was not working for you. Each theme essentially does ./../nbba theme/ for all of its resources so it goes back to the default theme to get the files. I am not specifying ES specific until the gamelist.xml which references images.

I will add that next update. Next update may not happen for another 2-3 weeks as I have plans and will be busy. I may end up with 7 additional consoles themed in the next update.eralParticipant08/15/2015 at 21:15Post count: 2
To be honest I’m not entirely sure why they paths didn’t work, but ES would crash at startup with out the following changes.
./../nbba theme -> ./
./../../nbba theme/system -> ./
./../nbba theme/main/font.ttf -> ./main/font.ttf
./../../nbba theme/atari2600/logo.svg -> ./logo.svgherbfargusMember08/15/2015 at 21:25Post count: 1858
I’ve fixed some of the paths and added it to the new theme downloader from the setup script. Its missing a few things for the retropie menu but it seems as though everything else works.
Once the theme is more complete I’ll work on integrating everything fully in the source so it can be downloaded easily from the setup script.sekaziParticipant08/15/2015 at 21:45Post count: 68
That is really odd as ./ = current folder and ../ = go back a folder so ./../ = go back a folder and then the rest of the path is forward. No matter so long as the main theme is in the correctly named “nbba theme” folder the paths should have worked fine.
On my computer I keep all of the themes separated from the files which is why the main theme is also written the same way.
I noticed today when working on my Raspberry Pi that the RetroPie 3.0 release has a new settings entry in the gamelist so the next update will have an icon and entry put into the theme.dougie1970Participant08/15/2015 at 22:24Post count: 56

To be included in the next updates are below by priority.
Atari 7800 (Redoing background)
Sega CD (Redoing background with 6 button arcade pad)
SNK Neo Geo (Providing alternate gamepad background)
Nintendo Virtual Boy
SNK Neo Geo Pocket
Magnavox Odyssey 2/Philips Videopac G7000
3DO Interactive Multiplayer
Sega Saturn and down will likely be a separate update depending how consumed I get next month.

I thought I had him mentioned in the first post but realized it went away after the numerous changes to the post. I have added a reference to the next readme and into the first post. His theme is what made me want to make this theme.CrumbParticipant08/19/2015 at 11:54Post count: 10

The next release will likely take even longer than expected. Too many things going on currently.
Here is just the Megadrive logo for now.
It has the minimal one and the one like the official logo. When I did the look up of the logos I was having difficulty finding a Mega CD logo and 32x logo. I can create the 32x logo from scratch when I get to it.AnonymousInactive09/03/2015 at 06:13Post count: 1
I wonder where you found these background images, because I want to find some missing me like 3DO and Atari Jaguar for example. Or if by chance is you who creates them could give me a hint on how to create made?
I thank you.
