Thanks Buzz, I’ll keep that in mind. Think I will go for an update to 3.5 or poss wait for 3.6 from binary but just thought this feature would be nice to have so tried without a full update. If I break it, then I’ll just have to bite the bullet and rebuild it from scratch again.markyh444Participant02/16/2016 at 00:56Post count: 14
After some digging you were 100% right. It was looking in the new emulationstation directory under /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation but all my boxart is in /$HOME/.emulationstation so altered this in the runcommand config and it works now!
Thanks for your assistance, everyone here has been a big help with my project and Retropie is such a great thing!markyh444Participant02/15/2016 at 20:38Post count: 14
I got one years ago and found it when working on my NES project. I can’t say I’ve had chance to test it though, but it is an exact replica of the competition pro ones (red and black, two big buttons and 2 small). It says speed-link on the bottom and they have a website address of http://www.speed-link.com printed there too. Hope that helps. Think it was an eBay buy.markyh444Participant02/15/2016 at 20:32Post count: 14
Sadly I can’t take credit for that, it was made by rookervik and is the pixel theme you can install through the menus. It’s excellent though, and has fit my build superbly! The borders I did have a bit to do with, taking a template and modifying then slightly (not the gameboy one though) and I did a complete PlayStation one myself which isn’t shown in the video. It’s quite simple once you’ve got a starting point (Google retroarch borders) and then just start fiddling with Photoshop.markyh444Participant02/15/2016 at 02:04Post count: 14markyh444Participant02/15/2016 at 01:12Post count: 14
You are in luck! I’ve just recently found somebody who has done this and I’ve managed to replicate it successfully. See the link in my Custom Build post I’ve just done: ++Shameless Self-Promotion++
I’ve referenced the page I found it on there and it worked flawlessly!markyh444Participant01/27/2016 at 16:28Post count: 14
Well, it was photoshop for the still screens apart from the pixelated retropie one it ends on as that’s taken from the pixel theme by rookervik. It’s all put together in Windows movie maker. Simple as that, all the built in transitions in movie maker are all I’ve used and I got the sounds from the net. Just searched for Mario wavs and found loads. Really simple in the end after I downloaded some proper video editing software I could barely comprehend.markyh444Participant01/18/2016 at 18:27Post count: 14markyh444Participant01/18/2016 at 17:02Post count: 14
Sure thing, here you go:
I did one that had slightly different music as well as a greyscale final screen and a solid-font Nintendo logo instead of the pixelated one. That one’s here:
Let me know what you think of the other one as well, but I prefer the one I originally posted as it fits with the NES I’ll be putting this pi2 into eventually.markyh444Participant01/18/2016 at 10:49Post count: 14markyh444Participant01/18/2016 at 01:39Post count: 14
Cheers. It looks pretty good on a 46inch tv too. I’m looking forward to getting my NES hacked and finally putting this all together. At the minute there’s a pi2 sat under my tv with a ton of cables everywhere!
I was trying to go more CGI etc at first, but in the end I thought “I’m putting this in a NES, why be complex?”
It’s only a bit of photoshop and movie maker, so I can’t claim it’s taken loads of effort. I thought it fitted quite well though to the feel of the project.
