    I have seen a case that does that but I really like the RPi official case.

    The sound is pretty non existent. You can hear it if you put you ear up to it. You can feel a slight vibration on the case when holding it.

    I did a stress test at stock speed with and without the fan and here are the results.

    Nope I do not think that was ever pointed out. Here is the correct link.

    I finally managed to get stuff working on my Raspberry Pi 3 so I can work on the theme again once I get everything copied over. I upgraded to 128 GB so I do not keep having to swap files to test.

    I actually have a completed PSP theme already but not released.

    Lately I have been trying to find ways to keep the overall look but reduce the memory consumption but have not found a way yet.

    I am trying to figure out of SVGs or PNGs are more memory friendly. I know if I go with PNG I can cut down on some of the SVGs since I can use the color option.

    I have ordered a Raspberry Pi 3 so my next released will probably be soon after I got it. I will likely start a new thread for it.

    Looks like I cannot make changes to the first post anymore.

    Here is a download of the latest release v1.2.
    https://mega.nz/#!KVwwjLCb!NaPmtZxLa2ZAHFaCkJexbBYoL03gO4LXPrbfjUMj4rs

    When testing on my Raspberry Pi I was getting a white screen until I reduced to number of shown themes. I do not know how many can be loaded at once without getting it as the gamelists also play a part in the white screen. I am currently unsure how I can reduce the impact on the Raspberry Pi right now. I cannot use a stock SVG for some items as they color option does not work with them.

    I still need to pack the high resolution and alternate logos in zips but this is the main theme.

    I like to get thoughts on the gamelist selection. I made the list the lightest color. I made the selection black with the lightest color as the selector bar. Below is a video showing them. I also left aligned the detailed gamelist.

    EDIT:

    Thanks. So I will keep Kodi in a folder called kodi then.

    Here is a small preview of some redone logos. The Atari 2600, 5200, 7800 and the PlayStation. The PSX logo also stuck out like a sore thumb to me which is why I changed it. I debated on changing the whole symbol but opted for changing just the P.

    The SUPERSYSTEM part of the 5200 logo was hard to find a clear picture of to find out what the font was. I think I got it pretty close.

    Right now I am trying to rework some of the complaints about the light on light colors. I never had an issue with it on my screens but I can see how it could be a problem.

    Thanks luizpietro. I actually finished up the Jaguar yesterday.

    Sorry for all of the missed times I said prior. I can definitely say I will have something released this weekend.

    Here are the new and changed ones I have completed.

    For the few other suggested ones that have full on keyboards for the controllers I will be adding incomplete themes. They will be missing the menu background with the keyboard so instead it will have a background like the lists. Those systems are
    Amiga
    zxspectrum
    Zmachine

    There are a few other touch ups I need to also do but nothing major. I also need to test on my Raspberry Pi.

    How does Kodi work on the Raspberry Pi? It was requested but I am not sure how it launches or where the files actually need to go.

    I have usually seen that error if you do not have enough video memory available. Try increasing it and see if it works then.

    [quote=105319]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.

    [/quote]
    I made the backgrounds. There are several steps to make the background. If the controller is not a traced controller then there are 10 steps I take to make it. It involves converting from image to a vector back to an image and back to a vector to get the style I am looking for.

    The ones you listed are in the to do list.

    I still plan on getting the rest done but this past month has been far too busy. I got so much done in a short time before since I had more than my usual free time.

    The next release will likely take even longer than expected. Too many things going on currently.

    Here is just the Megadrive logo for now.
    https://mega.nz/#!XBIRmLAZ!bSuR4C9WPKsPgab7ucHaMRNuOW5IiX4LqhzJGOZWHmA

    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.

    Make sure you have svg’s specified for the filledPath and unfilledPath of the md_rating.

    If I remember correctly ES will lockup without it.

    I am still getting a blinking underscore cursor when I change
    [ “tty” = “/dev/tty1” ] && emulationstation
    to
    [ “tty” = “/dev/tty1” ] && clear && emulationstation > /dev/null 2>&1

    It is much better though.

    As for the video the the solution has a flaw.
    while pgrep omxplayer &>/dev/null; do sleep 1; done
    That is causing emulationstation to not start loading until the video is finished playing resulting in a short boot sequence which the video was hiding plus the video allows the emulationstation loading screen to no be shown as long.

    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 DS
    Sega SG-1000
    Nintendo Virtual Boy
    Sega Saturn
    SNK Neo Geo Pocket
    Atari Jaguar
    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.

    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.

    [quote=103849]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.[/quote]

    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.

    [quote=103849]Now it works perfectly, would you consider adding a Nintendo DS theme?[/quote]

    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.

    I believe both of those are not possible. The bar as far as I can tell is hard coded in to es and es does not know how to read multiple images from the gamelist.xml.

    Your best bet for the image is to merge multiple images into a single image.

    I have been tossing ideas around but have not come to a solution I like yet.

    The furthest I have ever gotten is

    The problem with this is the left controller does not help to specify what the console calls its actual button.

    The hotkeys that would be worth noting are

    Exit Emulator
    Reset ROM
    Emulator Menu
    Next Save Stated Slot
    Previous Saved State Slot
    Load Saved State
    Save State
    Rewind
    Fast Forward

    As far as I know this cannot be done. What could be done is creating additional identical systems and pointing them to different themes. This would make the system select screen really long though.

    [quote=102862]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.

    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.

    I actually have intellivision files saved somewhere

    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?

    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.

    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.

    [quote=102720]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.
    Thanks for your hard work!

    I have one of those switches but I always hate that you cannot easily tell if it is on or off. I have since bought a proper one.

    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.

    [quote=102540]In short, someone should make this into a theme that only shows screenies.[/quote]

    Attached is the theme. Just copy the logo into a game folder with the theme.xml. No need for any changes.
