Overlays compilation repository for consoles and handhelds (1080p)
cosmo0 last edited by cosmo0
After spending some time grabbing overlays here and there, I have regrouped them into an easily-installed compilation : https://github.com/cosmo0/retropie-overlays
All systems should be covered (except the ones without a Libretro emulator, of course), sometimes with a "generic" overlay. Let me know if you find any problem.
To install, just download the latest release for the pack you're interested in, and copy/paste at the appropriate places.
There are 2 available packs at the moment:
New release with new overlays!
New system overlays in the "shaders" pack:
- Panasonic 3DO
- Atari 5200
- Atari Jaguar
- Coleco ColecoVision
- Mattel IntelliVision
- Sega Saturn
There are also PSD files for Playstation 2 and Gamecube in
_sources/systems-custom/, but since they don't work at all on a Raspberry Pi, I did not create the overlay config (it should be easy to do, should you want to).
As per @cloudlink request, here is a "realistic" overlay for consoles :
Add this to your
retroarch.cfgfile at each system folder in the
input_overlay = /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/overlay/systems/generic_old_crt.cfg custom_viewport_width = 994 custom_viewport_height = 758 custom_viewport_x = 318 custom_viewport_y = 136 aspect_ratio_index = 22 video_force_aspect = true input_overlay_opacity = 1 video_shader = /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/shaders/crt-pi-curvature.glslp video_shader_enable = true
generic_old_crt.cfgfile: open the
configsshared folder, browse to
all/retroarch/overlays/systems(you might need to create this last folder) and add the following lines:
overlays = 1 overlay0_overlay = generic_old_crt.png overlay0_full_screen = true overlay0_descs = 0
Copy the following image alongside it and make sure it's named
New release (after 2 years lol)
Up to 64 systems (I cheat because some of them don't have - yet - Libretro emulators).
Basically there is now an overlay for ALL Retropie systems.
New realease: v1.3.1
A few small fixes (and a Recalbox pack).
New release : v1.4
Found out about Recalbox "complete" pack, so I grabbed a few more systems from there.
- Adds a few systems: Atari 800, Atari ST, MSX1/2/Turbo, Odyssey2/Videopac, Supergrafx, Samcoupe, X1, ZX81. And also Apple 2 but the emulator is not Libretro, so it doesn't display it.
- Changes Channel F & PCFX
