Retrorama Comic Theme

  • @lipebello No .... more like a conversion so that the Main System Icons more look like this.
    The SWITCH-theme selection icons are square shaped in resolution of 1080x1080 (afaik - but the resolution does not matter). Then the trick is to cut your retrorama systems view also in square shape. like this:

    I like the clearness of @lilbud's Switch Theme but together with your RetroRama it's a lighweight retro theme ;)

    GB Switch Theme @lilbud --> GB RetroRama Theme @lipebello

  • @cyperghost said in Retrorama Comic Theme:

    1080x1080 (afaik - but the resolution does not matter).

    I only designed them at that resolution, but I exported them at 600px.

    Designing them at 600 made them look terrible.

  • @lilbud Good to know ;) I hope you like the idea

  • @lipebello Love the acknowledgment to the great Stan Lee in your readme files. An inspiration to many! Also, a huge thank you for putting up your original retrorama bezels! Hands down my favorite!

    May he rest in peace. Excelsior!

  • @BiZzAr721 Thank you! Glad you like it. i like the new ones better, because they look more real and old, lol

  • @lipebello I do like the texture & label/button. What I like about the original is the left & right side are differentiated more, but also the new ones have that slight tilt to the artwork so it's not parallel to the bezel.

    I'm a finish carpenter by trade, so I can't keep my eye off that - it looks out of plumb haha

    Really dig those game specific ones - especially Asteroids & Space Invaders with the back drops!

  • Hi! Has the 4:3 version of this theme come out yet? I LOVE it but my monitor isn't 16x9. Keep up the good work and thanks for any replies!

  • Hi @lipebello,
    I really love your Retrorama theme and your themes in general.

    I'm a Retropie user on Raspberry but I'm also an Attract-Mode user on Raspberry and PC.

    I recently forked your public repository on GitHub, to make a 4:3 Attract-Mode version.

    In this version there are also some differences from the original and obviously It is not intended as your official version of the Retrorama theme for Attract-Mode... just my version.

    I ask you if I can humbly continue my work publicly on GitHub, maybe with some more appropriate description/credit that you can suggest me.

    Anyway, if you want I'll delete my fork on GitHub immediately.

    Thanks in advance

  • @o0alucard0o hello! thanks a lot for the kind words.
    No problem at all, you can use it, as long it's not for sale.

  • Hey @lipebello! Spotted your new update on Madlittlepixel's channel and have to say it looks absolutely amazing! I'm desperate to get this on my Pi! Looking forward very much to seeing it when you've done. :-) Happy New Year!

  • Thanks @Ranma! i'm planning to add more systems after the holydays. I'm also making a new version of Retrorama (both 16:9 and 4:3 versions) with new logos and drawings that i've made.



  • @lipebello Will the new versions become available on your Github page or somewhere else?

  • @Clyde Yeah, but i'll create another repository, so i can leave the old one for the people who want to use it

  • @lipebello I'm new on retropie and I wanna say you thank u for your AMAZING WORK! I really love it!

    I have some questions:

    1. I have see u have overlays repo to add overlay during game. Can u explain how can I configure it?
    2. I wanna add your video splashscreen but I have download it from youtube at poor resolution. U have a working download link? (youtube link in description is broken)
    3. It's possible to add new art for "desktop" theme? I have installed LXDE to my retropie but I want add it to emulationstation home like KODI.
    4. How can I add your scraping version of games that I have see in previous thread messages?

    Thank u for your reply and sorry if some questions are already explained in previous messages but are very lot and I have joined today :)

  • @m3rLin0 Thanks!

    1 - best way to add overlays for me is:
    A - install notepad++ (i use windows)
    B - windows key + R / type "//retropie" and when a window prompts asking for username and password, type "pi" (user) and "raspberry" (pwd)
    C - unpack your overlay files to a folder in retropie (i like to add them on //configs/all/retroarch/overlay/retrorama)
    D - go to configs/system you want to add the overlays (ex: configs/nes)
    E - edit the file configs/nes/retroarch.cfg and add the line:
    input_overlay = "/opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/overlay/retrorama/nes.cfg"
    BEFORE the line #include retroarch.cfg and save the file.

    2 - You can download it here:

    3 - yup, i'm remaking the theme, when i finish converting the images, i'll add a few more

    4 - you just choose the retrorama mix on XMLScrapper -

  • @lipebello Thank you!!! you are great! :)
    I'm waiting for your next updates! great work!

  • @lipebello yay! good to see you are still active around here :D

    do you know if that teepublic site delivers on our country? I would like to get some of those t-shirts ;)

  • @meleu They do! i got some from them. It's best to wait because almost every month they drop the price to U$14,00

  • @lipebello This theme is absolutely gorgeous, you've done an incredible job here. I'm also looking forward to seeing updates on your Retrolution theme, which looks amazing so far.

    The only downside to the Retrorama theme that I could find was that the TurboGrafx-16 launching image is utilizing the art you had used for the PC Engine's SLBG image, as opposed to the art you used for the TurboGrafx-16's SLBG image. If you could fix that, this theme would be perfection. :)
