This XML element is not mandatory, so it can be left out and it will evaluated to false if a theme checks this value. If it is there it has to be explicitly set 1 (or semantically equivalent) to be effective. This is why I perceive it as redundant and picked the term.
@h2805270 Wow, thanks for the B/W versions. Nice. I do like the rearrangement on the "Adventures" logo. And also thanks for appreciating my short writeup on the logo editing.
FWIW these are the fonts used (grepped from the accompanied README.txt in the initial post):

If someone needs the text as text logo versions (and before converted to path objects for final display) pls shout. Note that in some logos I did change the font-path afterwards.
Finally had more time to work on this. Tried generating the crash again. What’s weird is I get a blank log file when it crashes on boot. While I was looking at logs, I did some poking around.
Found and deleted a duplicate gamelist.xml under /opt/retropie for one of my systems from before I did my scraping. I thought I had cleaned those all out beforehand. The others are on the same drive as my game library.
I checked for and installed Retropie updates.
Not very scientific, I admit, so I regret if I’ve muddied the troubleshooting. That said, I’ve made progress. I’ve started getting errors about input devices:
Basically, it doesn’t seem to like that I have my 8BitDo dongle plugged in. I also have a couple of controllers paired directly with Bluetooth. Was trying different methods to see if one was more responsive than the other. Well, even with the Bluetooth controllers turned off, it seems like it is just enough to anger things during boot. Unplugging the dongle stopped the crashes. I just wait until after boot to plug in.
The only remaining thing that troubles me is why did it matter what theme I had before? Why did turning off favorites and last played collections help. That duplicate gamelist.xml may have mattered more than I thought.
Well, enough rambling from me. Hope this helps someone later on if they run into similar issues.
@rbezares I had this a couple of days back, somehow es had managed to remove it self, I refreshed the card and it happened again, although got slightly further in the boot as es did appear before crashing. I flashed a new image to a different micros and it has worked fine since so am putting it down to a bad card
try mupen64plus-gliden64. it should be the best performance and compatibility in general, but be warned that it's quite normal for n64 to exhibit poor performance on pi4, but several games can perform pretty well.
I tried uncommenting and changing the hdmi_group and hdmi_mode options in the config.txt, but no audio improvement.....just poor video!
from what to what? i suggest a 1080p60 mode in your config.txt (please provide copies of all configs you edit.). any further lowering of resolution you need to do can be done via the runcommand, although personally i leave everything at 1080p.
please also provide /opt/retropie/configs/n64/mupen64plus.cfg
