    I swear these are just getting better. I’ve never used an Amstrad but that image makes me want to.

    Are these available for anyone to use in themes or does Mr. Fargus have an exclusive contract? πŸ˜›

    I’ve set up a theme repo for all the artwork- Once it’s complete I will add it to the theme installer (https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/wiki/themes) in the source code:

    https://github.com/HerbFargus/es-theme-tronkyfran

    in the meantime until it’s complete you can manually add it in this file:

    /home/pi/RetroPie-Setup/scriptmodules/supplementary/esthemes.sh

    after this line

    https://github.com/RetroPie/RetroPie-Setup/blob/master/scriptmodules/supplementary/esthemes.sh#L52

    you’ll add

    'HerbFargus tronkyfran'

    As far as rights to use- I’m just the code maintainer, Tronkyfran is the artistic genius here so that’s up to him πŸ˜‰

    Wow!!! the final is approaching!!, I think we’ll see it “complete” pretty soon, if my mind can get the megadrive modeling right(or if someone kind enough do it for me, wink wink).

    The fact is that Im throwing the roadmap away and doing the systems I’m more attracted, I’ll do the hard ones at the end.

    I was thinking about the rights matter, It’s easy, you’re free to use them for everything, giving credit to the author, excep for commercial use. I like very much the carbon theme terms, so you can copy them if you want herb πŸ˜‰

    And here we come, Vectrex(this was easy :P)

    PD: And the “code mantainer” is a big part of this too πŸ˜‰

    This looks like a great theme in progress. Herb, can you also add a version with Big screenshots (for the gamelists). All my roms have in-game screenshots so I can see what the game actually looks like instead of a picture of the box, lol. At the moment they are tiny unless you sit close to the TV. I hope this theme doesn’t get abandoned with missing system pics like a lot of the other themes. Keep up the good work Tronkyfran.

    I appreciate your efforts Tronkyfran. I would personally prioritise the Systems that actually work well on the Pi, like Atari ST, Megadrive, PC Engine, KODI etc. The NDS, PSP, Dreamcast etc will probably never run well on a low powered Raspberry Pi. I would put those to the end of your list (in my opinion). Maybe if a popular succesor to the Pi is released or a Pi 3 but they’re not even considering that yet. Thanks for your work.

    Emulationstation can be used on windows too where those systems that don’t work on the pi may be more viable, so they will still be useful for those that use windows.

    And windale I can probably make a nometa version like we did for the carbon theme with only large boxart- I personally prefer the large boxart/screenshots as well.

    Tronkyfran, Once the artwork is complete for all the systems, I’ll probably bug you on IRC for some real time collaboration on colours, fonts, layouts, etc as I don’t want this to just be the simple theme with your art- rather I’d prefer it to be your theme that was loosely based on the simple theme.

    Yeah, I just think the Systems that barely run on the Pi should have the lowest priority (as it is primarily being made for Retropie use). There are still some very popular systems that run great but dont have backgrounds yet (Megadrive, Atari ST, PC Engine, KODI, ScummVM etc).

    For the Large Artwork thing, it would be good if you could keep the 4 main metadata entries (number of players, year, publisher etc) at the bottom of the large artwork like the NBBA theme.

    Windale, you are right, but I dont have the base 3d models for megadrive, atariST, msx and pcengine, and they are not easy to make. My time is limited and I have to choose carefully what to do with the 1-2 free hours a day I have.
    They will be done, it just will take more time πŸ˜‰
    I think There are left this systems:

    -3do(remake)
    -Atari 800
    -AtariST
    -GameBoy(remake)
    -Genesis/megadrive
    -KODI
    -Megacd
    -Msx
    -Retropie
    -Saturn
    -ScummVM
    -Sega32x
    -Sg-1000
    -Sinclair(remake)
    -Turbografx/pcengine (I dont know if Ill do both,maybe)
    -Wonderswan

    If anyone need anymore systems you can try asking for it here;(neogeo pocket, for example).

    Learning Rhino 3d to improve my Genesis model, I’m not the best polygonal modeler in the world, so I have to do it. It will take 3 o 4 days so this is going to be in standby till then, (maybe I’ll do retropie system if find some inspiration).

    Looks good, just FYI, I took the liberty of adding your theme to the theme installer just so its there, then as I update the repo with your latest changes the theme can be updated as well through the setup script. It looks really good so far!

    Ok, just 13 systems to go, I’m updating the roadmap in page 2 so you can see what is left. I think the most important computers and consoles are going to be done, there are too many to do them all.
    Wtf….I realized just now that I forgot to add PORTS and PC :O

    So 15 systems then to go!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I think there are a couple of systems that are(functionally or stetically) the same, and I prefer not to waste efforts if the emulator can be used by two of them, like:

    -Atari ST/Falcon/STE (some internal differences, not too many)
    -PCEngine/Turbografx (same functionality, i think)
    -Wondersan/Wonderswan Color( just some little cosmetic differences)

    In any case, if I can finish all the rest and not being exhausted I’ll try to do them too.

    – Super Famicom (wrong logo) –> What?? I thought that it was correct :O , I’ll take a loook, sigh…. πŸ™

    You are right about the rest, I’ll do the effort, I think it’s worth to finish all the systems I can. But I’ll put the neogeo variants at the end of the list.

    I’m going to redo ALL the wires, I want to talk to you about whats the best and more useful perspective, maybe we can speak on irc or skype sometime.

    There are SO many systems!!! I’m like running a marathon, hahahah!!!

    I downloaded the theme yesterday and tried it out, and I believe it has the potential to be the best looking theme yet if you ever do finish it, I caught myself just scrolling left and right admiring the art for like 10 minutes, I was bummed that not all systems showed properly and the sub menu was plain, only because the system view was so amazing, so I’m sure not many people are saying it, but I bet there are tons of us myself included that are hoping you can one day complete it, it’s worth waiting for, which is why I periodically come back to this thread to check the progress. Good work tronk and herb

    Don’t worry, the plainness will be fixed. It’s definitely a work in progress. May take another 6 months with all the systems I just threw at tronky ha ha but I intend on finishing it. As there are changes I update the repo which you can update from the theme installer, and any changes I have made should show up.

    And tronky I’m more than happy to chat on irc when you want, I pop on the retropie channel occasionally.

    WeΒ΄ll fix those not-so-finished things and I hope that it will be soon… πŸ˜‰

    I finally did the megadrive system. I’m sorry but dont think I’ll do a genesis version, I dont know why but this was the hardest system till date :O

    No worries, I have a placeholder from rookervik for the genesis that will more or less fit the theme:

    Okeeyyyyyy, I suppose that USA people prefer this one πŸ˜€

    Genesis

    The image is less interesting because the megadrive logo down-righto is lost in the genesis version but… it is what it is.
    In spanish we have an expression, “de perdidos al rΓ­o”, it means that once you start a thing, it’s not so much effort to do something more(well, more or less).

    EDIT: 2nd version is a little more focused, its better for me.

    Going to be a little slower from now, I have a time limit of 1 hour a day to make the images,hope to do one a day if everythnig goes smoothly…).
