Console Loading Screens



  • @newellj79 of course! But I’m currently out of state so I’ll get to the rest of the console list when I get back. You can expect new content by the 26th. I plan to have an intro vid for each console and to redo the N64 console intro because I’m not pleased with it.



  • @7hesandman
    Awesome! Keep up the good work!



  • @7heSandman
    Do you think you can create a general video (aka. unknown systems)
    So there is an alternative playback for videos that were not already created ;)



  • These are really nice! I'm not familiar for individual console loading screens so I've 1 question: Is there a time limit on these (10-11 sec?) because the sound on some videos is cut off.



  • How can i get this working in retropie running in ubuntu 18.04? it is driving me crazy.



  • Answered my own question. I ended up just replacing all the omxplayer stuff with vlc commands for fullscree, no title display and then exit vlc. i also went ahead and set vlc up to not show any playback controls and to have no border. seems to work just fine. Thank you so much for making these!



  • @n4tur3502 Hi! Any chance you can share what did you do to get this working with VLC on Ubuntu 18.04? I'm in the same boat here xD.

    Thanks in advance!



  • Well, as @n4tur3502 did, I'm answering my own question too:

    1. sudo apt install vlc -y
    2. nano /opt/retropie/configs/all/runcommand-onstart.sh
    3. Add line:

    [[ -f /home/pi/RetroPie/videos/$1.mp4 ]] && vlc -f --no-video-title-show --play-and-exit --no-qt-name-in-title --qt-minimal-view --no-qt-bgcone "/home/pi/RetroPie/videos/$1.mp4"



  • Its amazing thanks a lot !
    No chance for new ones ahh ? :))



  • @shavecat Yeah Mame, SNES, and Genesis would be awesome!

    Separately, is there any way to make these play when you select a system in Emulation Station? The launching image video is awesome for ROMs but I am thinking as an alternative it would be cool if we could find a way for the video to play when you click on a system in a theme before going to the game list for that system. So if you are on the main list of systems on a theme and click NES, for instance, the short NES video would play and then go to all the NES games. People always amaze me on these forums of what they figure out how to do so who knows!
