Retrorama Comic Theme



  • @lipebello It's a shame a few ruin it for the many. I'd interested in making a donation by paypal or patreon for you to keep going with it. I just found it myself yesterday and I'm saddened by the loss.

    Hello. sorry about the delay in respond to this, but i kinda absent from talking about last week and why i deleted my account on github and my repositories.
    I have a huge collections of emails, facebook chats and even whatsapp (because i once joined an arcade builder's group) of people asking me if they could sell retropie images with my themes on it, and once i refuse, they started to talk about how the things on the internet spread and that it was better selling to them and this kind of stuff.
    Last week, a moderator from a FB page called Raspberry pi BR released a recalbox image with my theme, but all my name was erased from the images, and he called his image "the retrorama edition".
    I kindly asked him to remove my theme from his image and pointed that if he wants to share my work, he should do this without erasing my names, like it was discribed on the readme.
    He erased my comment and started threatening me on private chat, so i've made an evaluation on the page saying what the moderator made and gave it one star.
    Then i started to receive some more hate messages because the page owner made a post saying that i was creating fakes to negativate their page (that never happened). But in the end i'm always the bad guy, so i decided to not create anything else.

    Bah. Dam that sucks man. Selling an image with your theme is one thing, but going to that length to remove your name from your own work then insult you over it is something else :(

    I have nothing but respect for your amazing work. Hope to see you return in the future.



  • @lipebello I don't blame you for your decision, but I am saddened that your beautiful work will no longer brighten our days. I hope you find success in other art endeavors. You are supremely talented.



  • just came across this. damn shame, just a damn shame. it just shows the type of people out that are out there. that is why i do not follow any group out there are are selling this for money. they will do anything and blame everyone else who tries to do things the correct way.

    I stand with you on your choice to pull your art.
    Im with a few others there. i hope one day we see you return.



  • Every download link i find gets me a 404error and thru EStheme within Retropie it requires me to login to github which when i do bears no results eather :(.

    Any help please, I love this theme!

    *Edit; sorry i just read back a little too less. Damn shame cause your theme is hella awesome man. Does it mean it's not availible anymore anywhere?



  • @bogus
    Let's say that if you manage to find it, it'll go against the will of the author.
    As sad as it is, because this theme is a masterpiece, I don't think people here will help you to find it, simply out of respect for the decision of @lipebello.
    Personally, I even went to delete the theme from my setup.
    Let's just hope he'll reconsider his choice one day.



  • @sano
    I completely understand. It's a damn shame tho. I'd petreon that theme is a jiffy!
    Altho I'm sad it wont be around anymore, still mad respect for the author!



  • So can you keep the theme, and not have the error when trying to update? That's a bit un-nerving, esp if you are not really experienced with your little pi.



  • Does anyone have suggestions as to what other themes might be similar enough in functionality/looks?





  • @stephanepare If you check @lipebello 's youtube, he has an awesome Swineapple theme on there. Not sure if that was removed but you might have more luck google-ing that.

    Other then that, I'm trying to create my own theme now inspired by Retrorama. I use to be a graphic designer (now a stay @ home parent haha) and i think it's always a good thing to learn some new creative ways. @lipebello Don't worry, i'll only use Retrorama as inspiration, i won't use or copy the actual assets. Depending on the results and if Doodle's cool with it, i might share it eventually.



  • @bogus

    I'd love to see what you develop. @lipebello had really well done handdrawn artwork.



  • @sgtjimmyrustles That's the biggest obstacle for me, I'm not that much of a handdrawing artist XD. I'll try my best digitally tho!

    e for me, I'm not that much of a handdrawing artist XD. I'll try my best digitally tho!

    Well, digital or handdrawn, it was good. You might also look at the comicbook theme here and take inspiration from it. You got any examples of your artistic work?



  • @sgtjimmyrustles

    Yea, i'll have to dig in a little. I'll make a new topic somewhere in the near future, dont want to take over this one.



  • ERRONEOUS ERRONEOUS ON ALL COUNTS!!!! we should just start a facebook movement over this theme seriously!.. #resurrectretrorama



  • @lipebello ERRONEOUS ERRONEOUS ON ALL COUNTS!!!! we should just start a facebook movement over this theme then seriously!.. #therealretrorama

    Anyways great work man !. Don't be discouraged by a bunch of copyright-credit crooks. Just remember the consensus knows a lot of time and effort was put into creating these singular images from scratch, like real hand-drawn stuff. Props dude props!.



  • I was really looking forward to installing this theme on my retropie and this is hands down the best theme I have seen to date,I really hope it will be available in the near future



  • @scoot75 Try the Comic Book theme. You won't be disappointed !



  • Any news on wether we are allowed to share this theme yet.
    By the looks of it lipbello has gone from the scene and no longer responds to any comments.

    I purchased another pi for a second system and noticed this theme was missing whilst trying to set it all up, so a quick search on here and i found out he was no longer doing it which was such a shame as I really don't like any themes except his.

    Anyway a friendly user told me how to take the theme from my other pi to the new one.
    In the process I backed up all the retrorama theme,intro vid, overlays and launching screens that were all done lipbello.
    So if we are ok to share I do have his whole collection all backed up ready to go :)
