Neo Geo Mini theme



  • @legacy
    Hi. You will probably have to update ES from source as I don't think grid support is in the stable branch yet. You can do this from within retropie.



  • I've posted a video to YouTube of the theme in action.



  • @ruckage

    Thanks ruckage for another great theme,

    looking forward to seeing your nes & snes mini versions using gridview.



  • @ruckage thank you and will you share your game icons artwork pack.

    Thanks ruckage for another great theme,

    You're welcome, glad you like it. Snes /nes mini grid view will come soon, it will probably have to be a separate download to begin with - at least until grid view is added to the stable branch of ES. I'm also planning on merging the nes/famicom mini themes into the snes mini theme as they have many similarities and it will be easier for me to maintain as a single theme.

    Do you mean the mini marquee images? Sure I can share those though I'll need to contact the person who compiled the original pack first. I believe they originally came from the hyperspin website - they were compiled by a user called amchine. I've modified them so they are better suited for use on the raspberry pi (smaller image size and compressed using pngoo) and I've added a rounded corner effect.



  • Yes please, only problem if i switch themes then the images will change size.

    Is there a way to use a default set of images for the mini theme and then normal snapshots for a different theme.



  • Loving the theme.

  • @legacy Looking good. Thanks for trying it and it's nice to see you're having fun experimenting with adding your own backgrounds. I tried to make the theme as easy as possible to customise.

    I'll probably be adding more styles down the line (some very different to the original graphics set) so that finding a colour choice to match a user created background will be easy.



  • @ruckage thank you for your work. I'm still interested in those icons set or if you can send me a link to the pack on hyperspin. Ive not managed to find them.

    I'll upload a new video soon.



  • @ruckage Thank you for your work, I have been following your works for a few years, I have registered to congratulate and support you.

    The theme of neo geo is incredible, I just want to enlarge the images of the covers but the xml is different from other themes, is there any way?

    I will be very attentive, also to your project of snes with the selection of games in cartridges.

    Forgive my English, I come from Spain.

    Hi at @juma
    I'll try and help but I'm not sure what you're trying to achieve. What do you mean exactly by 'enlarge the images of the covers'. Do you mean enlarging the entire tile or just the picture within the tile. Or do you mean stretching the cover to fill the space in the tile. If you could post a picture showing what you're trying to achieve that would be helpful and I can try to assist you.



  • @ruckage Hello, you are very kind to answer me.
    In my case I play on a 21 "CRT TV, I would like to enlarge the image of the game, I have already been able to" eliminate "the selection frame, but I can not enlarge that image. What should I adjust in the XML line to change that parameter?

    I show you a simulation of my idea.

    Thanks again, if I can help with something, do not hesitate to tell me, especially at the editing and graphic level.



  • hey @ruckage this theme only supports carousel right? Which isn't in the main build of Emulationstation yet right?



  • @juma If you want the selected game image to appear bigger then you need to change the following parameter:

    <gridtile name="selected">
    	<size>0.1916666666666667 0.5777777777777778</size>
    </gridtile>
    

    If you want the others game image to appear bigger then you need to change the following parameter:

    <gridtile name="default">
    	<size>0.1916666666666667 0.5777777777777778</size>
    </gridtile>
    


  • @MrJordaaany This theme use the gridview which haven't made it to the stable branch yet, you can still try it out on your Pi by installing emulation-dev package from the "experimental packages" section.



  • Hello, does this theme use the same format of gamelist like other themes?



  • I seem to be having issues with mine. I've scraped a load of images but they aren't appearing in your theme. Do I need to add them to another folder for your theme to work?



  • @ballboff

    Hello. Do the scraped images appear in other themes? Are you definitely using a version of ES that supports grid view?

    Yes they show up in other themes, yes i've switched it to grid view and the theme loads fine, just no game images are showing...



  • @ballboff

    What version of ES are you using?
    Can you post an example of one of your scraped images and is there anywhere you could post your gamelist.xml file so I can take a look?
