    Is there a way to add a theme for an emulator to an existing theme?

    For example, I use simple-dark and I want to add Colecovision to it. But I don’t have the launch icon and theme for the launcher so I’d like to make one and add it to simple-dark

    Also…I’d like to use fba-alpha to launch cv roms…so if I install Fba can I just overwrite the existing FBA theme with a colecovision one?

    I have split your post as its own post as discussion is better separate from the sticky post.

    You can add whatever you like to your theme:

    Documentation is Here:

    https://github.com/Aloshi/EmulationStation/blob/master/THEMES.md

    though it would seem that colecovision is already part of your theme:

    https://github.com/RetroPie/es-theme-simple-dark/tree/master/colecovision

    Also I would be interested in knowing how you got final burn alpha to work with colecovision as I was never able to get successful results.

    I actually never tried to get CV to work with FBA. I assumed it worked because there are a few references to it on here and the Rpi forums stating it does run them and that it was the only real viable option.

    Cool CV then would appear to be the only option really (maybe ColEm)..I’m going to attempt to compile CoolCV as nanochess provided relatively instructions to do so. If you’re still interested, I’ll post an update
