@muldjord That must be it for those titles but it is strange that they changed recently. These are older NES titles so perhaps screenscraper changed for some of those titles. Not a big deal, just wanted to point it out. Thanks!
6Player Version of Xmen -> Reminds me:
For ROMLister or similiar Tools, which version of the multiplayer.ini/nplayer.ini should/could be used? I guess that the one for .78 won't suffice and later ones may be inappropiate due to missing - and/or renamed roms?
Glad i came over here, cause the version that can be installed from within Retropie has its ratings broken since the Pi4
Perhaps it'd be a good idea to include @Zenjiro updated version to the Retropie theme installer.
@mitu said in Chicuelo Theme:
raspi2png -p $HOME/RetroPie/roms/capture.png
Thank you for that. Works a treat. Your help is appreciated.
Here are the screenshots of some of the theme that I have tweaked NOT created.
I am working on the other systems as we speak and will update on my progress hopefully later this evening.
This windows version is a god send, thanks so much for the amazing work.
I have two issues that I would like to report:
The VideoComponent on Windows when using showSnapshotDelay displays the static image properly and then replaces it by the video as expected BEFORE launching a game. However when you exit a game, it returns to the static image as it should EXCEPT the aspect ratio is completely wrong.
The VideoComponent scaling does not seem to be filtered and seems to be using point sampling when downsizing videos which creates unpleasant aliasing.
What is the best way to get those confirmed? I want to add them to the github list of issues but they recommend posting it here first.
Thanks for your help
It appears the TI-99 logo in this theme (regular and metadata versions) is still showing as the TRS-80 logo. The TFT version of the theme does have the proper TI-99 logo. I'm not sure if this theme is still updated but just thought I'd mention as it’s a fantastic theme.
@nismo , Hi there! I'm absolute noob and I'm not a native english speaker, so please be patient with me! I'm using the ES portable build from herb fargus on windows 10 and I'm realy interested in the mentioned launcher which would make my Retro Gaming Experience much more enyoable! Any chance to get this launcher somewhere here in the forum?
Here is a full list of all of the synopsis fixes that were made by creating a gamelist.xml for the RetroPie and using the new Reversal script to create [synopsis].txt files usable in Madmab Edition emulators, as well as how many instances were fixed:
PAGE SETUP / FORMATTING:
All Windows based (CR LF) line breaks replaced with Linux based (LF) line breaks: 1,228 (This is a document count. Actual instances of this fix is likely in the 30,000 to 40,000 range)
Added double spaces to lines that should have had them: 38
Corrected established order for "Original Title: " and "Alternate Title: " lines: 29
REMOVED extra blank line in between Description and first URL: 1
Line had a line break in the middle where it shouldn't have been: 2
Two extra lines after Description when there was no URL: 12
Extra spaces at end of lines: 5
Blank line with only a single space in it. The original code kept that line because of the space, as well as adding a Double Space before and after it, leaving 3 blank lines between the end of Description and the beginning of the first URL: 1
Added "Blank Space" under "_____________" that notes the beginning of the Game Description text. (NOTE: This looks much better in the XBox [synopsis].txt format than not having it, but this extra line is removed in the [synopsis].txt to gamelist.xml conversion code because this leading blank space does not look good on the RetroPie.): 1
"Original (T)itle" Capitalized: 10
"Hacked (B)y" Capitalized: 16
"Translated (B)y" Capitalized: 6
UNUSED FIELDS REMOVED:
REMOVED blank "Alternate Title: " line: 56
REMOVED blank "Original Title: " line: 41
BLANK FIELDS THAT SHOULD HAVE HAD INFO (Usually "Unknown" except for Players info):
Missing "Players: ": 5
Missing "Release Year: ": 19
Missing "Hack Release Year: ": 27
Missing "Translated Release Year: ": 1
Missing "Hacked By: ": 1
Missing "Version: ": 2
MISSING TAGS OR INCORRECT TAGS, BUT INFO WAS THERE:
Missing "Players: " Tag, so line and data were lost: 4
Missing ":" in "Version: ", so line and data were lost: 2
"Release Year: " misspelled "Relase Year: ", so line and data were lost: 1
"Release Year: " misspelled "Releaese Year: ", so line and data were lost: 1
"Alternate Title: " mislabeled as "Alternative Title: ", so line and data were lost: 3
"Translated By: " written as "Translated y: ", so line and data were lost: 1
"Publisher: " written as "Publisher:" without space. Somehow code re-wrote this as "Publisher: Publisher: " after the reversal script. (Assumed code would mimic this behavior for any tag missing the space before the info): 1
URL TAG FIXES:
URLS that started with "www." were ignored by all code and just showed up in the Description rather than the <url> or <urlalt> tags: \
(Fixed this so no matter what order the two links are, or combination of "www." "http" or "https" they are they will both print on separate URL tags and in the order they are in the [synopsis].txt)
PROBABLY NOT GOING TO BE "FIXED":
On VERY rare occasion there are more than two links in a synopsis file (For instance, if multiple hacks were applied to a single file). The code currently adds any more than two to the <urlalt> tag with a line break in between them. Most likely will not put in additional tags for the 0.0002% of games that would have this extra link or two.
In the next week I will create a new gamelist.xml file and run the reversal code again and compare the new output. I expect after doing this a second time with some code changes that I made today that the input [synopsis].txt files should be a 100% exact match to the output [synopsis].txt files.
The above fixes should then be applied to any synopsis files for other systems I work on in the future. Also, in the future, rather than do the crazy amount of editing I did by hand that could be handled with code like this, I will be adding more things to the existing code to automate all of that process.
Man... I'm glad I finally started learning how to do this for myself. :)
This is probably the greatest theme I've ever seen and I've searched a lot of the internet.
Would it be possible to get a PS2 version of the overlay? I'd be open for anything just would be nice to have one of my favorite consoles done in this awesome style.
