    Hi, can anybody confirm the Illustrator svg export settings for theme graphics ?

    I tried exporting svg with default options using Adobe Illustrator CC 2015 but its all black and white, colours are missing 🙁

    Trying to create a new theme, will post when ready

    It’s picky about how you save and draw your svgs. Typically with inkscape I have to convert strokes to paths and a few other things. Just trial and error really.

    You can, but emulationstation is coded to adapt with SVGs. I.e. when. You switch between systems, the system you are currently on will grow whereas with pngs it stays the same size and looks more static. Pngs may also be larger in filesize potentially. My preference is for svgs but you can do whatever you prefer.
