Spaceoddity Transparency issue
navi87 last edited by navi87
Pi Model or other hardware: 4b+
Power Supply used: Original Pi ,3A
RetroPie Version Used: 4.5.18
Built From: I did a manual install ontop of: 2020-02-13-raspbian-buster.img
USB Devices connected: MS Keyboard
Controller used: PS4 Dualshock via BT
File: spaceoddity theme
How to replicate the problem:
Install spaceoddity theme via RetroPie_setup.sh, Ive had this issue since several months (approx since December)
I have just reinstalled my retropie from scratch and I noticed that the spaceoddity theme isn't showing as it should, all images with transparent backgrounds show this weird gray instead of being transparent.
Ive had this issue for a while, I thought it might of been my previous buggy retropie install (I tried many things out here and there) but a fresh install didnt help.
Ive tried 4-5 other themes, they all appear to be showing correctly except spaceoddity. Help?

@navi87 What is your ES vram limit set to? Are you using standard ES or ES-dev?
the VRAM is set to 300mb and im using the standard ES which I installed via source through the retropie setup sh
Right I manage to fix it by doing the following:
First of all close Emulationstation.
- head into \etc\emulationstation\themes\spaceoddity_art" and delete the frame.png file.
- Duplicate the bg.jpg file and name rename the new file as frame.png
- go up one directory and open the theme.xml and change line number 190, you need to change the zIndex value to 80.
Save up and restart EmulationStation. All done!
I can see the same issue, it's probably a regression.

My fault, I had accidentally set the clearcolor in ES to white instead of black
It's fixed in the latest source now on github.
Yep, looks fine now - thanks @Tomaz.
oh ok brilliant, thanks ill get myself updated.
OK all done, thanks for the quick support. I am curious though, whats different with this Emulationstation-dev package compared to the normal one? @mitu
@navi87 It's easy - the
-devpackage is the development branch, where all new features/changes are added. Once in a while, this branch is promoted to
stable, from where the regular
emulationstationpackage in RetroPie is created.
So, you're trading
