I have made several programs that I use to generate these previews. One for generating the 3d boxes and another program that combines all the images together and finally one to create the gamelist.xml needed by emulationstation.
Your programs to create images are great, but gamelist.xml for megadrive was not what i need. It seems to have the same release date for all games. I prefer to use scrapper for windows (uses hash instead of rom filename to match game) on my roms folder, which creates better gamelist with more info. Then search-replace with null <description>.*?</description> in notepad++ to delete text unused in my theme (work in progress). It looks like this for now: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v6tVkgb-V24 So… looking forward for your next previews :)comptusParticipant03/23/2016 at 10:57Post count: 3
I have found nice 3D boxes for NES here: http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/topic/12107-updated-nes-box-art-3d-2d/ Is there an easy way (automatic, app, script?) to join those pictures with screenshots and/or titles from separate files?comptusParticipant03/23/2016 at 08:31Post count: 3
It’s a shame that the system select screen isn’t more moddable as you can’t even change the colour of the carousel bar.
Carousel bar color is not configurable as an option in theme configuration xml files. It is hardcoded, but EmulationStation is an open source project. You can modify this colour as you wish, afaik in line 302, where it’s value is 0xFFFFFFD8 (RGB+alpha?). https://github.com/Aloshi/EmulationStation/blob/unstable/es-app/src/views/SystemView.cpp Then compile this source as decribed here: https://github.com/Aloshi/EmulationStation/tree/unstable#building I am not a programmer, so didn’t try it by myself :) Your previews are awesome, thank you. Any chance for Game Boy and NES packages?
