  • I downloaded a pack of custom bezels for arcade machines, mostly for MAME and FBA. Could someone tell me where to place the .cfg and.png files so that ES can recognize them?

  • Check instructions here. You'll also find over 100 quality overlays made for retropie ;-)


  • Still I cannot get these working. I looked at the link you provided but when I launch a game the new bezels are not being recognized. There must be something in a config file that is not pointing to the new bezels.

    All of my bezels are located in the /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/overlay/arcadebezels/ folder/

    each game has a png (artwork) and config file in that folder.

    for example:
    1941.png
    1941.cfg

    config data:
    overlays = 1
    overlay0_overlay = 1941.png
    overlay0_fullscreen = true
    overlay0_descs = 0


  • Also I dont have a romname.zip.cfg, only the romname.png and romname.cfg


  • @johnnyb To setup bezels you need 2 cfgs per rom.
    The romname.zip.cfg must be created and placed in the same folder as the rom is in.
    Check the example for 1941 on what the cfgs contain.


  • that temple of doom bezel is 2560x1440 pixels. you may need to resize them so that they match your display resolution.


  • Thanks so much everyone
