I can't believe it's been 7 months since you've posted about this work man. Looking forward to seeing what else you come up with. Can't wait to get to some of these other systems and use your stuff one day. :)
@used2berx Thanks a lot ;)
I have finished Wonderswan B&W set with remaster of all the Media, All the AMIGA CD32 Media, A part o f AMIGA 1200 and Wonderswan Color Media. Finalised my 3DO Stuff too .... i always work a lot on RVGM :p
And now i also working here on the forum with others to OpenBOR and Hypseus (Daphne).
@darknior Sorry to reply to such an old post, but was your work continued elsewhere? It's difficult to find any decent looking pce-cd art. Like the japanese covers for Exile1,2, valis 1,2,3,4 and tons more.
@Darksavior If i remember fine i've all finished and working on some other set difficult to find.
No Valis 1
I play games in english i will not release Japanese cover. I made some for translated games on other systemes like NES SNES Genesis because i don't like to have two same cover and i want one for game US version and an other for my French version.
I already have so many tons of covers to create :(
@darknior I replace awful US game covers like valis 3 and Exile with the japanese covers whenever possible. I got my Exile 1-2 japanese covers from ebay listings I think.
I'm in the middle of editing a ton for other consoles that I got from the cover project but they don't offer much for the japanese versions of sfc, pce-cd, and mega-cd. They've also butchered US tg16, and ps1 with their customized "segacd" sized covers.
Ah, oh well, thanks for the reply. I'll keep using google. I do have to resize and downsample the covers from the cover project. Pegasus can tolerate higher res pictures better than ES but too many still slow it down and the 3000x res increases loading times way too much.
This is my setup with a slightly modified theme by just fooling around editing the stock Pegasus theme. I still have to figure out how to place the metadata text. Might go back to 5 covers per row. I really love the Switch NES menu and this is good enough:
@Darksavior Yes i know, no one have Japanese covers :(
I must draw many of them for many systems ... and i'm alone ...
Your menu is beautiful, i don't try for the moment, is ti working really fine now ?
With all the same options than ES ?
All the METADATE TEXT, IMAGES, VIDEOS ?
Sort options ?
I remember reading it is harder to skin than ES ?
@darknior I'm still in the middle of modifying it without knowing a thing about it. All I've done is edit some files the dev told me to modify to get my results. He has his own page here if you need help but here's the documentation to everything https://pegasus-frontend.org/docs/
Pegasus is still in alpha. It has no scraping or config controls to work in games. You'll have to do that in ES first and then Pegasus will use it. No sorting. Box art will overlap if they are all not the exact size. If you want the fancy game logos, you'll have to use another scraper that can get logos and rename them to what Pegasus wants. Screenshots can be replaced with video but it's been a while since I've tried them. Some videos had trouble playing and some would freeze everything. Maybe that got fixed, I don't know. As soon as I found out I could remove the left side completely, I got a bit obsessed in tailoring it to the way I want to see it.
Be aware that if you use higher res box art that Pegasus can handle (for genesis/megadrive, I downsampled~3000x art to 1000x730), ES will struggle and you'll get a slight pause in between each picture. Scrapers seem to use very low res art.
If you download the cover project's collection, it will be missing a ton.
Luckily, I found segaretro.org has high res box art for sega stuff including mega-cd.
This is how it normally looks:
@Darksavior Thanks for all your explanation, i will try that ;)
@darknior Thanks for these. I notice that you didn't have the Ranma ½ - Ni Bun no Ichi logo in your mega link. Do you happen to have that somewhere?
@mccorkled Ranma 1-2 - Datou, Ganso Musabetsu Kakutou-Ryuu! (Japan) is the only one i made if i rememrber fine, i'm not paying with the other game.
