After seeing the excellent work done on the pixel theme, plus the fact I’m halfway through a project to convert an old broken NES into a Retropie-toting emulator-beast, I have been toying with some video splash screens.
After a bit of trial and error, I decided that I wanted a simple, clean and ultimately retro boot loading screen. I took a bit of NES, SNES and Sega and came up with this:
Comments welcome, and if anyone wishes to use it I can post a link to the original video (only 5mb anyway)
Cheers. It looks pretty good on a 46inch tv too. I’m looking forward to getting my NES hacked and finally putting this all together. At the minute there’s a pi2 sat under my tv with a ton of cables everywhere!
I was trying to go more CGI etc at first, but in the end I thought “I’m putting this in a NES, why be complex?”
It’s only a bit of photoshop and movie maker, so I can’t claim it’s taken loads of effort. I thought it fitted quite well though to the feel of the project.
Well, it was photoshop for the still screens apart from the pixelated retropie one it ends on as that’s taken from the pixel theme by rookervik. It’s all put together in Windows movie maker. Simple as that, all the built in transitions in movie maker are all I’ve used and I got the sounds from the net. Just searched for Mario wavs and found loads. Really simple in the end after I downloaded some proper video editing software I could barely comprehend.
