    Hello.

    Is it possible to change the font size in the game lists?

    Because i use a 3.5″ lcd screen i can barely read the text in the gamelists.

    Yeah, in the theme.xml, (Path should be /etc/emulationstation/theme/theme.xml, the theme you are using is the folder you go in.) Open the theme.xml and in it change the font size to a higher value, for a 3.5 inch screen. try 0.10, (sorry never used one of those screens.) Experiment with a size that works, hope this helps

    <textlist name="gamelist">
    	<fontPath>./art/OPENSANS.TTF</fontPath>
    	<fontSize>0.04</fontSize>
    	<horizontalMargin>0.01</horizontalMargin>
    	<!-- <scrollSound>./art/sound.wav</scrollSound> -->
    </textlist>

    Thanks for pointing me the right way. You were almost correct 🙂

    /etc/emulationstation/themes/simple/simple.xml

    That was the correct way for me atleast 🙂
