    Hi everyone,

    It’s not the first question about this subject, but I have tried the suggestions on the forum but they don’t seem to work.

    I have build my retropie in a original game boy case, using a 3.5 inch tft screen. All worked out nice and I have croped the screen so it fits exactly in the original 160×144 screenwindow of the game boy. I also changed the resolution in config.txt to 160×144. This all works.

    EmulationStation also crops nice in to the 160×140 screenwindow but I can’t get the resolution to change. I think a lower resolution would be better, because the text in EmulationStation is not readable.

    Any Idea’s how I can fix this?

    You may be able to change the font size etc.. in the theme?

    By changing the font size in es_systems.cfg I was able to make the text of the gameslist and the scraped game info bigger so its readable now!

    I also would like to make the text of the menu bigger, and also the text of in the down left corner explaining the buttons. But I don’t see any reference to these parts in es_systems.cfg?

    Any tips were I can alter the font size of the menu, the scraper menu and the text in the down left corner?
