Can You Add a Menu Box in EmulationStation?



  • Another day, yet another EmulationStation question. But this forum is so super helpful, I'll prob have my answer in no time. I want a black border to appear around my video game images in my theme. Right now, I'm just using Photoshop to put the black boarder where I want it on screen (as part of the background png file) and then editing the values in the XML to center the game covers/screenshots correctly.

    Is there a way to do this natively in EmulationStation? Meaning, can I have the file menu place a black boarder around each game cover as cycle through the game list AND have it change it's ratio in relation to the cover layout (IE: tall for NES games, wide for SNES games, square for PlayStation games, etc) all on the fly in real-time? You see this kind of thing done in Kodi all the time, was wondering if we can do it here.

    Maybe you can find a guide for themes in Projects and Themes.

    skyscraper can have profiles added and changed, that resize and can add borders to images, there isn't anything for videos though.
