screen unreadable for game thumbnails

Post by tam23 » Sun 1 Oct 2017 20:55

sorry if this has been posted before but i did have a look through before posting.
i am finding it almost impossible to read the thumbnails of my roms on the screen when i scroll through.
admittedly the screen is actually pretty good once i am playing a rom.
is there anything i can do to make the retropi homescreen a bit easier to see.
thanks in advance for any help.

PixelTFT is another favorite. I saw someone on Instagram is working on a theme for their MintyPi, and that would probably work really well, too.

Here's where I shamelessly plug my own GBZ35 themes. They can be installed through RetroPie-Setup, or the ESThemes choice in the RetroPie menu.

Nice one fella. I think it was one of those 2 I settled on in the end.

No support for TurboGrafx 16? Also, Wonderswan games are showing up as Wonderswan Color and actual Wonderswan Color titles have no graphic asset for themselves?

There are a few systems I need to fix/add still once I catch up with real life. TG16 is in there, though... I have it set up using the "pcengine" folder name specified by Retropie.

Thanks for the heads up on the wonderswan stuff. That snuck by me.

Could you add Game & Watch? It's a great theme for the Raspiboy thanks!
