My Clean & Simple 240p ES Theme, RetroCRT!
I've been working on my 15khz RetroPie distro and the extant themes weren't really doing it for me. So I took one that was pretty great & fleshed it out. I'd like to submit to have this added to the RetroPie theme list. Thanks!
NOTE: I'm still actively updating it, mostly customizing the borders per-system, but the over all look is 100% established and stable.
i'm not entirely sure how to submit a PR to get my theme added. Do I just clone, edit, & then try to push upstream?
@altruistictrog Yes, close the RP repo, create a simple branch, then - on that branch - modify the
es-themes.shscriptmodule to add a line to your Repo/theme. Submit this modification as PR to the RetroPie-Setup project on Github.
For instance - https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/pull/2818.
@mitu i'm struggling trying to figure out how to create a pull request. i've cloned, branched, edited, tested, checked out master, merged and when i go to the retropie page & click 'create pull request' the button goes gray but doesn't do anything. i've been googling for a while & can't find anything on how i do this.

@mitu i'm an idiot, youtube is my friend.
fork -> clone -> branch -> edit -> commit -> merge -> push
my pull request.

@altruistictrog simple and fantastic at the same time. Love it, great job!
@celly hey, thanks! it still needs work but it's like 90% there.
i did everything with shell scripts & imagemagick, i'm surprised at how good it came out =]
cleaned it up last night & today. cleaned up the outline, and did a ton of work lining up the text far better, as well as fleshing out the metadata. this has all been pushed to github.

@altruistictrog Hi mate, I'm interested in your work on the RetroCRT image. I always look out for new configs and solutions (use Pi2SCART myself). Is there any contact with you outside this forum (email, reddit or something) ?
