    Update Mar 5th, 2016: Added ‘MESS’, ‘Adventure Game Studio’ and ‘Game & Watch’ sections. (pixel3.zip attachment)

    Update Feb 9th, 2016: Added ‘Arcade’ and ‘Love’ sections. (pixel2.zip attachment)

    Here’s the Pixel theme. No meta data in this theme.

    Pixel

    Example

    I will work on a variant where the console image is removed from the game-selection screen and put the meta data there for you.

    Splash screens in 16:9 and 4:3 are included in the zip.

    Thanks to muriani for the wicked Sega CD image, and to Omnija for helping me troubleshoot some errors in the log.

    Looks brilliant mate. Are you going to put this on github for the theme Installer?

    I’d be happy to do it if you don’t want to

    How many systems have you tested this theme with? any chance of a white screen?

    It won’t cause white screen for multiple reasons.
    1 it’s exceptionally tiny total = less 1mb
    2 it uses colour filters instead of heavy duty image layering.

    Good job guys, I actually like the way the theme came out, I use 27 emulators and ni white screen so I can vouch for that as well

    I have advmame as its own seperate theme so I added this and tried to match the rest as best as I could, just found a random pixelated logo that said arcade

    Man, this theme is gorgeous! Thanks for all your hard work!

    There are like 50 systems on my pi, not all scraped, but still no white screen. I duplicated a couple systems from the theme to cover the additional ones I needed.

    Just a suggestion that could add more character to an already great theme, maybe adding new logos pack to match your splashscreens, for example in the system select menu the logo for sega could be made with the sonic the hedgehog font similar to your sonic splashscreen where retropie is in the sonic font, and same for the other consoles, logos made with font from a popular game from the respective consoles, the console images would stay the same. This together with a version of sur0x’s splashscreen randomizer that has only your splashscreens would make for an amazing experience everytime you start up the pi, maybe you guys could work together on that, that Is of course if you have the time for something like that, I’m sure it would take a while, but this idea just popped in my head because I love your work

    Ooh, I don’t know about changing all the system logos. Haha. That took me longer than actually drawing all the systems. And it wasn’t merely as simple as shrinking them. I actually had to draw them. >.< It’s a neat idea tho!

    My first attempt at pixel art, wow this took forever it seems, Ive gained Even more respect for your theme haha, I just wanted to personalize the retropie theme so I made this logo, what do you think rookervik? Retropie letters definitely not as good as yours, unfortunately it doesn’t show up as big as I would like it to

    Glad everyone is enjoying this theme. It’s my favorite as well. I’ll try to keep it updated when new systems become available. But I only update my RetroPie maybe twice a year. So you’ll have to let me know if systems are added.

    You have Genesis in addition to MegaDrive.. how about TurboGrafx16 in addition to PCEngine?

    Both PC Engine and Turbo Grafix 16 are in the theme already. Just set your PCEngine section of es_systems.cfg to point to tg16 instead of pcengine. Same you do with genesis instead of megadrive.

    Ok. I didn’t see it there the first time. Looks good! But now we need Adventure Game Studios (ags) and ResidualVM.

    Aww man, that’s a whole new emulator for only 2 games? Sounds like it should go in ports instead of being its own emulator. Or tuck it into ScummVM since they’re both Lucas Arts games anyway.

    I’ll make an adventure game studio theme since there’s a lot of those.

    There are a lot of the game engines that really just need a game selector in runcommand rather than being set as their own system but that needs some extra coding to fix.

    I’m trying to change the theme of pcengine, to tg16. I changed the system and theme in the es_systems.cfg, but I don’t get a logo. After looking in the themes folder, the xml calls for logo.png, but the logo file for tg16 is logo2.png. I renamed it to logo.png but still no luck.

    How can I get this logo to show up?

    This theme should be the RetroPie default. Very good work.

    Can you add Game & Watch to the list please ? It’s very polished emulation.

    also ResidualVM (although I haven’t managed to get any of the 3 games to work on RetroPie, it just exits back to EmulationStation, they work on the PC version).

    And possibly Daphne just because it’s missing, I tried Dragon’s Lair and it didn’t look very smooth on Pi2 (might be because I used the M-HD version), and Space Ace Enhanced didn’t work.

    The tg16 logo was named incorrectly, just as you mentioned, hydraulix. I named it correctly (since it was originally just added to the theme in case a user wanted to replace PCE with TG16 iamges) and it works for me. Hopefully it will work for you as well.

    I agree, I think ResidualVM should be added as an emulator option within the ScummVM menu.

    Hi,
    I really love you theme! Great work! The only thing that is missing for me is a european version of the console.png for the super nintendo. I am not able to create my own. Could i kindly ask you to add one if you have some time left?

    Thank you very much!

    Hey solbadguy201,

    Made the Super Famicom system theme for pixel. I’ll add it to the main theme later. But for now, here is the folder if you want it. Or you can copy the images over the SNES images.

    Hi rookervik,
    thank you again for the SFC console.png and the logo.png. Since the SFC was the Asian Version of the SNES i tried to create an European version (changed the logo with paint :-D ). In Europe we had the SFC design but it was called Super Nintendo. Can you please review my changes if they meet your quality standards? Maybe the theme.xml also need some changes. The new console.png covers some of the Text in the selection screen. I´ll try to change this after work by try and error.

    Edit: Added Version 2 with transparent pixels in the logo

    Not sure how to do super nintendo since it appears to have 3 versions. Super Famicom was Japan but the body style was also used in Europe. The American and European Super Nintendos use the same logo. Not sure if I want to put 3 versions of the same console in the theme. Seems too redundant. Maybe I can just put both consoles and both logos in the same directory and people can rename them to suit their needs? Otherwise it will have SNES, SFC, and SNES-EU… seems overkill?
