Shaders on the menu (Emulationstation)?

  • Hi,

    Is it possible to use shaders on the Emulationstation menu? (or at least scanlines)

    I have my Retropi on a tabletop arcade, and use a CRT shader for all my arcade games, but when I come back to the menu I'm painfully reminded that I am using an LCD and not a proper CRT.

    Being able to use shaders or scanlines on the menu would help with maintaining the illusion all the way.

    Thanks in advance.

    No, Emulationstation doesn't have the ability to run shaders, that's something specific to RetroArch.
