    Thanks, and those shots aren't mockups - it's actually running on ES (only in windows though - I still need to test it on the pi as I don't know how much of a performance impact gridview has yet).

    @ruckage Love your theme. Any insight if you will update it to the current ES themes to include Custom Collections, Last Played, Favorites etc ?

    I may add those but no promises.



  • Some Bezels i put together.

  • I've been experimenting with a different theme for my NeoGeo, this time inspired by the menus on the actual NeoGeo X. I'd actually planned something similar a long while ago but it's only now possible since grid view has been added to ES. The thumbnails will have to be custom made for this theme because of the gloss effect and reflection but I can easily make them as I can batch process the images.

    I've not completely finished yet but here is my current mock-up.

  • @ruckage love the theme, looks fantastic.



  • @ruckage Looks good but it seems a little gaudy IMHO.



  • All themes are awesome to everybody's personal taste, but I don't understand why everybody is all hyped up on grid view ? You have the screenshot of the game title, but the actual screenshot of the game + box art together speaks volumes. No disrespect to any creator in any way at all. You folks keep us motivated. Grid view has too much of an NES or SNES theme to it.



  • @bytethis , the original NeoGeo X just had the view similar to what Ruckage has just made with his theme.

    I do like both versions.

    Personal taste I guess, I like it myself.

    Grid view has been wanted in ES for a long while and as a theme creator it's something new and interesting to play with which enables themes that were not possible before so of course I'm hyped about it. There are already loads of themes featuring a text list of games plus screenshot/boxart/video and this isn't going to take those away so I don't understand why it bothers you. This will just enable a wider variety of themes and most themes support multiple views anyway.

    I disagree with this being a Nes/Snes thing, grid view in one form or another has been a feature of frontends for years.



  • I agree with @ruckage , to have more possibilities on theming is a huge positive imo. Look at front-ends like: hyperspin, launchbox, bigbox, pandoras box to name a few. Some of these themes that people like/want from other front ends is now becoming possible to port or have inspiration from with the new features of Retropie. Like ruckage said, you have the option in ES menu to change back and forth with detailed, video, grid etc. so the options are all up to the end-user.
    Grid view is going to be a huge update to Retropie, some great themes are going to become available, multi grid, single horizontal grid, vertical grid (imagine the wheel in hyperspin). the possibilities are endless and also not forgetting the other new upcoming features such as md_name in all views, carousel enhancements and more. The devs are doing a fantastic job.



  • Maybe it would be more comfortable to create a repository in github ... is it possible?



  • :) this is sweeeeeet!



  • @ruckage BRILLIANT!!! i am glad you are reworking this excellent theme, maybe the neo-geo classic has you feeling the MEGA SHOCK? and it rekindled the fire for this theme...? ; ) anyway brother, dont forget about us 4:3 and 5:4 arcade cabinet users too!

    also i have purchased a neo-geo x dock and 2 sticks and will be looking forward to your gold &nblack AES theme for that build im doing.



  • what power supply are you using as I have a b+ and wanted to know what size the barrel is on the adaptor to go into the power port on the back. Great work just need the power supply and mine will be finished :)



  • @ruckage i love this 4 marquee/poster view. Looks good.



  • @ruckage yo men well done! Right now i am building a neo geo console withan raspberry pi and you can teacth me how to install these files on my retropie? Changing menu , theme and launch images? can you?
