    Duke Nukem 3D theme doesn’t seem to be included in EmulationStation. So I’ve created a one.

    Here’s the instructions to install.

    1) Download the theme files from here

    OR using the attached file to this post.

    2) Extract the zip file to your home directory as duke3d.

    So directory structure is:

    3) In console (I’m using Putty to SSH in to bash) move the duke3d folder to your EmulationStation theme folder by entering the following

    sudo mkdir /etc/emulationstation/themes/simple/duke3d
    sudo mv duke3d /etc/emulationstation/themes/simple/

    4) Change ownership of file and folders to root by entering

    sudo chown -R root:root /etc/emulationstation/themes/simple/duke3d

    5) Edit your EmulationStation es_systems.cfg file.

    nano /home/pi/.emulationstation/es_systems.cfg

    And add the following inbetween any <system> </system> you want it next to in the menu.

    <fullname>Duke Nukem 3D</fullname>
    <extension>.grp .GRP</extension>
    <command>eduke32 -g %ROM% -gamegrp %ROM%</command>

    Reload EmulationStation and you’ll see it in the menu

    That’s it.
