Video from Scraper Layout

  • Good Afternoon,
    I have a question I just used the scraper and was able to get videos to work when my games are highlighted in menu. I am doing this on a full size arcade cabinet so the bezel slightly cuts off the left side of the game titles. In a basic view the titles are centered. Once the videos are added they align left. I plan to add a few more videos manually for titles that were not found. My question is if there is a way to edit the alignment of the game titles not completely centered but enough that they are not cut off like that? I would just like to move them over about an inch or two. Thank you for any assistance or clarification

    I think it depends on the theme and your resolution - so what theme and resolution are you using ? Some themes are made for HD resolutions and they don't look good when squished on a 4:3 screen.

  • I am using the default theme so I am really not sure but the resolution is CEA 2 720 by 640 I believe.

  • MINILUMI. i have low res and rpi hook up to a crt, i need to use this theme, otherwise i get a lot of cut edges, that was the best that ii find and also just highlight the cover and the game name centered, that is a good one imo

    @bswin821 CEA 2 should be 720x480 which is 4:3 and might not work well for a 16:9 theme. The theme repository has a good selection of 4:3 tested themes, usually marked either with CRT or 4_3. Try downloading the one of them and see how it looks (@zefolhadela just posted the URL of most of the themes included in RetroPie and how to install it).

  • @zefolhadela I am going to check that out now. Thank you very much

    Hm, 720x480 is not quite 4:3, though CEA 2 is reported as 4:3

    tvservice -m CEA
    Group CEA has 16 modes:
               mode 1: 640x480 @ 60Hz 4:3, clock:25MHz progressive
               mode 2: 720x480 @ 60Hz 4:3, clock:27MHz progressive
               mode 3: 720x480 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:27MHz progressive
               mode 4: 1280x720 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz progressive
               mode 5: 1920x1080 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz interlaced
               mode 7: 720x480 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:27MHz x2 interlaced
      (prefer) mode 16: 1920x1080 @ 60Hz 16:9, clock:148MHz progressive
               mode 17: 720x576 @ 50Hz 4:3, clock:27MHz progressive
               mode 18: 720x576 @ 50Hz 16:9, clock:27MHz progressive
               mode 19: 1280x720 @ 50Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz progressive
               mode 20: 1920x1080 @ 50Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz interlaced
               mode 22: 720x576 @ 50Hz 16:9, clock:27MHz x2 interlaced
               mode 31: 1920x1080 @ 50Hz 16:9, clock:148MHz progressive
               mode 32: 1920x1080 @ 24Hz 16:9, clock:74MHz progressive
