[RELEASE| Neo Geo AES Classic Theme
OK guys, here it is. The first release of the Neo Geo AES Classic theme for Emulationstation. I'm sure there are some coding mistakes, etc. so please report your issues below. This this only works with the dev brach of emulation station. Install that before the theme.
4K version here (windows only):
To install run this command:
sudo mkdir -p "/etc/emulationstation/themes/Neo Geo Classic/" && sudo git clone https://github.com/Arcanthur/es-theme-NeoGeoClassic.git "/etc/emulationstation/themes/Neo Geo Classic/" --branch master --depth=1
To use this theme you must install the emulationstation-dev branch.
This theme uses the grid view exclusively (for now).
- To install the dev branch -
Settings > Retropie setup > Manage Packages > Manage Experamental Packages
Scroll down and install Emulationstation-Dev from source. Once the application has compiled you will need to reboot your system, and you should now be running the correct version. You can verify by pressing start on your controller and checking the version # that displays at the bottom of the screen.
Next change the view type to Grid, then select Neo Geo Classic theme.

That's a very sleak design. It catches the look of the original console very nicely. 👍
Alas, I'll have to wait until the grid view makes its way to the final ES, since I won't install the dev version just for a theme (no criticism, just a sigh of regret in text form).
@Clyde The grid view is part of the stable ES release since February.
@Arcanthur The Grid View is part of the stable EmulationStation package in RetroPie since this February, so there's no need to install the
Also, there's no need to use
sudofor installation - EmulationStation can read themes from both the system folder (
/etc/emulationstation/themes) and the user's folder in
@mitu thanks,I had no idea grid view was a part of the stable release yet. I'll update my readme for that and the install command.

Hi guys, you need to make note that the grid view on the stable branch works differently to the grid view on the es-dev package.
I would personally work with the grid view on the latest es-dev as it has better and much easier theme settings and wait for it to be merged.

@Arcanthur Nice theme! Do you plan to do a version for 4:3 displays? Would be great to use it in Picade.
