  • @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?



  • @ruckage Hi!
    Can you share with us your template Neo-Geo MVS Mayflash F500 artwork?
    Thanks also!



  • @ruckage I know you have been extremely busy, but is there a chance you could release the Arcade icon for the main screen? Thanks for all youve done and I hope to hear back from you soon.



  • @ruckage

    Is it possible to show a "game-image.png" then the "game-video.mp4" ? I can only seem to get the video preview to play, unlike on your snes mini theme where you can display the game image then a second or two later the video preview plays

    Trying to remember of f the top of my head but I think this is what did it for me (in the neo.xml file):

    	<video name="md_video">
    		<size>0.475 0.6222222222222222</size>
    		<pos>0.4989583333333333 0.1740740740740741</pos>
    		<origin>0 0</origin>
    		<delay>1.0</delay>
    		<showSnapshotNoVideo>true</showSnapshotNoVideo>
    		<showSnapshotDelay>true</showSnapshotDelay>
    		<zIndex>-100</zIndex>
    	</video>

  • @ruckage I need to ask you an honest question, If myself and my son put a bounty source up for £77.86 for you to finish the Neo-Geo theme in 4:3, 5:4 and 16:9 would that encourage you to do so?

    You made a similar promise in the past for a $50 donation to add 4:3 support in time for you sons graduation but you didn't deliver....



  • @ruckage as you didn't deliver and finish the theme, i had to start modifying it to fit my needs to complete it in time, thus withdrew my offer and just to let you know i included the previous promissory of $50 usd into the new offer of $100 usd and will be securing it within bountysource so there isn't any party discrepancies this time around, so i ask you... would you agree to this?

    also could you look at the video and tell me what you think the problem is... thanks.

    You asked for 4:3 support - I kept my promise and added 4:3 and also 5:4 support which was a huge amount of work and if you were to put an actual value on it far more work than even the $100 you say you are now offering. I only ever planned Neo Geo and Capcom for this theme with any other systems being a bonus if I decided to add them.

    Without all my work on the 4:3 that was done at short notice and was never originally planned you certainly wouldn't have been able to complete your build ready for your sons graduation/birthday.
    I'm sorry but I get the feeling that whatever I do you will continually move the goal posts (as you have previously when you suddenly asked for multiple categories to be added) and you obviously don't appreciate the amount of work involved.



  • Sorry to jump in between here. I just wanted to know if there was any major change in this theme since the very beginning.
    I am not sure what version I have but I guess it is the very first download that was available here.
    @ruckage did you add anything new except for the 4:3/5:4 support?
    Just wanna make sure i didn't miss anything.

    The 4:3 was the only major change. Since then I've got the grid view working for marquees (or screenshots if you prefer) as well but It needs some tweaking/testing before I can release it.



  • @ruckage

    Cool then I am good for now I guess.
    Keep up the good work.



  • @ruckage

    Thank you for all you have done for the retropie community!

    I love this theme and I will be looking forward for the finished version. Keep up the good work! :)



  • @ruckage i didn't move any goalposts, i asked for the aspect support and for the theme to be completed for the $50 donation, you did add the aspect ratios, but did not complete the theme, and as far as the work involved, i am very sure that it is a lot, and worth something significant, but you cannot try to tell me that its worth more than $50 or even $100 for ONE PERSON as that is extortion, this IS NOT a commission, as if it were one, i would have you make it to my specs and for me only, no public release and sure the price for something of that caliber is way higher, maybe $300-$500 usd, but as this is not the case the money offered was to incentivize you to finish the theme for the public good, including myself, so the monetary compensation was fair no matter what you say, as it was more like pre-tipping versus payment for services rendered. my offer still stands and will attempt to gather funds from others as well, it may very well go over the $100 usd marker.



  • @ruckage also if you could please tell me what the issue i am having with the theme in the video please.

  • @linuxarcadeguy

    The theme is complete - Neogeo and Capcom were the only systems I planned for this theme. No one else asked for 4:3 - only you. Others may benefit but you asked for it and I delivered.

    @ruckage ....so the monetary compensation was fair no matter what you say, as it was more like pre-tipping versus payment for services rendered.

    That implies you compensated me in some way and you did not. I'd like to make it clear I don't make/release these themes for monetary gain and don't expect anything in return from the people who use them but if you explicitly say you're are going to send a payment for x feature and then don't follow through why would I keep making additions/changes for you in the hope of getting that carrot on a stick.

    @linuxarcadeguy said in Neo Geo X Build:

    ok, sorry I didn't see the donate in the sig, too small i guess, i overlooked it, will donate as soon as i get paid this week, add it to the budget, gotta throw it at the wife ya know... for the "arcade-controls.png" really should be "mvs-controls.png" in my mind :) but... remove the words "menu" and "options" thats it, and for the "logo.png" i need one each of these categories "Action" "Arcade" "Fighting" "Puzzle" "Shooter" and "Sports" using neo geo font? or whatever one the theme uses that looks appropriate. that is all chief...

    P.S. this is neogeo only, as i am omitting the capcom stuff, so please use red and gray where appropriate.

    Notice the part where you say 'will donate as soon as i get paid this week' and the list of categories you wanted adding which was never asked for in the beginning and certainly never agreed to - that's moving the goal posts.



  • @linuxarcadeguy

    Have you tried to play around with the vram setting?
    It looks like as it loads the background image a bit slower than the rest.
    Is that the stock theme image or did you change that?
    What kind of microSD card are you using?



  • @flyingtomahawk not a noob sir, it’s the theme, even tried optimizing images... still nothing..
