Theme is coming along nicely now. I intend to do a series (I got another 4 weeks minimum of furlough) of themes, based on hit SyFy channel TV programmes, starting with Warehouse 13.
I am doing 1 system at a time and testing it, having different characters and artifacts for the system screen, and basic screen, with a warehouse type tag for each.
So each one will look a bit like this;
However, I am having issues with the Detailed/Video Screen. I have this so far;
But what I want, is just to incorporate a screen shot of the scraped game, then a video snap of the game, but I want it so that it is in the "screen" of the following image. I am happy where the gameslist is, as I wanted it in the lid of the farnsworth (fans will know what I mean)also with the positioning of the other Meta data and the console. This is the image.
Is there anyway of manipulating the scraped image so they appear in the round window. I have tried most things, but don't know how to display only screenshots and videos, and discount the marquees and the boxart. With the one I have I was able to make it fit by making the screen square.
I know this is 2 years old but it seems this feature is still missing and i think it would really benefit RetroPie.
Comming from a Windows/Launchbox setup over to an RP4 i really miss my vertical carousel game list wheel. :(
@jdrassa I'm not sure if this was you or not, but someone on this forum had the idea to allow the changing of the carousels origin. So the selected logo could be in the center, or to the left of the screen.
@meleu I think those are images of text, which is sadly not what I'm after. I'm looking to make something along the lines of this. Where the carousel is all text, no images, and it is a different font for the selected one as compared to the non-selected systems
@meleu is correct. The "favorites" and "last played" all rendered as text in carbon. They are not images. You can now set the font and color that the text is rendered, but you can not specify a different font for the selected one.
@jdrassa Sweet. I'm in the middle of custom creating my PSP and PSX gamelists and mix images (scraping them has been unsatisfactory, so I'm getting images and data from half a dozen different sources and putting them together). It's time consuming, but once I'm done I'll be able to get back into RetroPie stuff.
It looks to be rejected mainly based on how rudimentary the request was that was submitted. The guy who originally submitted this push did so by simply making a flag that disabled the back button in ES, which is too simple of an implementation for buzz, he wrote that he wanted to make sure it was a better coded function.
@Hex, i promise I'll get to the next step soon, perhaps tonight if i get a lull, hahaha! Too many adult, work and parenting responsibilities come first. Damn these 30's.
