Chicuelo EmulationStation Theme for RetroPie
- Unique custom artwork for every system
- Custom collections pre-designed / created for various genres (such as Shoot 'em Up, etc)
- Collections for 'All Games', 'Favorites', 'Last Played' and 'Custom Collections' fully supported
- Support for various 'alternative' systems (such as TG-16, Famicom, etc)
- Power menu 'system' included (for users that require one)
- Video capable
- Support for screenshots/boxart and/or video. Marquees are not utilised in this theme.
Installation and Updating
To install the theme, use the theme installer built into RetroPie-Setup. You can follow this guide:
You can also update the theme within RetroPie-Setup:
RetroPie Setup Script >> Configuration / Tools >> esthemes
For an improved user experience - once the theme is active, adjust the following options within EmulationStation:
- UI SETTINGS > CAROUSEL TRANSITIONS: NONE
- UI SETTINGS > TRANSITION STYLE: INSTANT
- UI SETTINGS > ON-SCREEN HELP: OFF
This theme is designed for a 16:9 aspect ratio. Currently the theme is not fully compatible with a 4:3 aspect ratio. It has been tested with both 1080p (1920x1080) and 720p (1280x720) resolutions. Other 16:9 resolutions will likely work with no issue due to the scaling that EmulationStation performs.
Tested on Raspberry Pi and Ubuntu based x86 PCs.

I've downloaded GitHub for desktop, and created a repository, but neither on the web or the app I find the upload button.
I don't know if I have to do a previous step. I have no programation knowledge. I'm just a designer.
don't know what is a branch, or a pull request or a command line. Thats why I need help :s
