How to change fontsize and width of menu?



  • Hello dear community.
    Thanks for your help and solutions I got and found.

    But now there is a issue I can't solve.

    I built my arcade cabinet with a vertical display and changed some styles in the carbon-theme before.
    But now I wonder if it is possible to change the menu width or its fontsize to make the it more readable.

    That's what I mean..
    alt text

    So.. both are relative and proportional to the screen size, but it looks quite ugly. I' searching a way to make the menu wider and/or the fontsize smaller.

    My Retropie:
    Raspberry 3 Model B
    Retropie v4.1 (Pre made SD Image on RetroPie website)
    Emulationstation v2.01a

    Let me know, if you neeed more information.

    Thanks a lot.

    Jakob



  • @jakob I'm affraid that you need to edit the source code and compile yourself.



  • Thank you for your answer.
    oh no.. that doesn't sound good.

    There aren't any hidden elements or properties in a top secret theme file?



  • @jakob I think not.
