retrostone default emulationstation theme

Post by outz » Tue 14 Aug 2018 04:06

any idea where to obtain the theme used for emulationstation in the kickstarter videos?

i've installed RetrOrangePi_4.2_SLIM_Armbian_5.54_RetroStone_Debian_jessie_default_3.4.113 - but the default theme is hyperion, and makes the text (details about the game you've selected etc) difficult to read.

There's a little discussion concerning this topic over at the retrorangepie forum:

EmulationStation was not coded having low resolution screens in mind AFAIK. But there is a better theme i think.
Plug an ethernet cable and install gbz35 theme from Retropie - ES Themes option,

Having luck with the TFT theme that seems nicely visibly.

Hi,

think the one used in the video is the "gbz35"

Just open the settings and open "ES Themes", then scroll to line 62 and download it.
Then go all the way back to the Emulation Station screen and press start, select UI Settings, scroll to theme set and select gbz35

Thanks! Works great and makes the Retrostone much more useable! Don't know why the Retrorangepi image didn't use this theme from the beginning!

Retrorangepi developper repported that he switched to GBZ35 as default theme for the retrostone version because of better lisibility.
XorA can you give me the full name of this TFT theme? I have not tested it yet.
