SNES mini theme



  • Hi @ruckage first of all, thank you for this great theme, it is just incredible! I have one question though(excuse my ignorance I am kind of new in retropie). The upgrades mentioned throughout the forum are available on the online version that you can download from ES? For instance the collections misisng icon and background. Thank you so much!

    Hi, just made an account to thank you for the work you've done on this, Ruckage - I hadn't touched my pi in over a year but got back into tinkering after pairing your theme with that new Retroflag Superpi case, they really complement eachother nicely.

    Regarding other systems, probably not a priority but it would be really cool to have a Mega Drive icon based on the Japanese models and branding, as alternative to the European one you've already done, same same goes for the Mega CD and 32X. Maybe even the Sega Mark III as an alternate for the Master System?

    Just a thought, I imagine you want to prioritise those systems without any icon at all for the timebeing.

    Agreed with this one - These 4 would be a great addition.

    I'm sure I can get them added. Time has just flown by the last couple of months and I haven't had much time. As soon as I have the theme ported to Recalbox though I'll begin taking requests to get missing systems added.



  • Can't wait for new systems. I have a big black hole for Sega Saturn and Atari Jaguar right now.



  • @ruckage That sounds awesome cant wait to see some new systems supported! Glad you are still working on this project. Everyone who sees the theme on my pi switches to it because it looks so good.

    That's super thanks @ruckage , I believe the system images are there duplicated from other systems (apart from markIII), mainly the name logos that need doing. :)

    It's been a wile, but does your snes mini theme support collections and more systems - complete similar support as hursty supersweet and hey chromy?

    When do you think will be available your Recalbox theme @ruckage?? I'm waiting for it along time ago.. thanks for your effort.



  • @ruckage I absolutely love the snes-mini theme on RetroPie. How can I make it look like the US version? You know, the one with purple ON/OFF and RESET sliders.

    Thank you for your great work!

    EDIT: Nevermind, just found it! https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/12583/snes-mini-theme/134



  • How would I go about adding an icon for a system? I'm using Dolphin for emulating Gamecube, but there isn't an icon included in the theme.



  • I feel like I’m being completely dumb but how do I get this theme to play videos? I’ve been using it for ages but have only just used skyscraper so now have the covers on a box with a screenshot as the main image and a “wheel” and “marquee” image, so it looks miles better than just showing a picture of the front of the box.

    However I also scraped videos for all my games but when I highlight each one, the video doesn’t show - the main image is just a screenshot. I presume that’s where the video would be?

    This says this theme does support video previews so I assume I just need to tweak something. Appreciate any help. Theme is mega!

    @Baz Change the Gamelist View Style to Video in the UI settings and you might get video.



  • Hi, having an issue where the whole screen background goes black when I change systems (i.e. hit left and right) almost like it's reloading the background image. Also the "x games available" text takes a minute to load in. Is this a configuration issue or something else going wrong?

    Thanks so much for this amazing theme.



  • @megasweet My guess is you have the transition style in EmulatonStation set to 'fade'. Press start to go to the EmulationStation options. Select 'UI Settings'. Then change 'Transition style' to 'instant'.



  • @ruckage How would I go about adding an icon for a system? I'm using Dolphin for emulating Gamecube, but there isn't an icon included in the theme.

    That was the case. Thanks for the tip!

    Hi. Unfortunately not a simple task as it require several images to add a new system. You need an icon, a logo, and 2 different background images.
    I will however be adding more systems soon so keep an eye on this thread for when I start asking for new system requests.



  • @edmaul69 great icons, can you share turbo grafx,supergrafx,capcom logos and icons?



  • I dig your work @ruckage.

    Do you draw these icons from scratch ? what's your work flow ?

    My attempt at emulating your style . for Creativion.creativision.png.aa54c228db6a721f161146a84f8ff89f.png
