    Hi,
    I have a huge problem with my RetroPie. Just did an install and the theme isn’t popping up, before installation it had this cool gray default theme with sliding images. You can see on the screenshots how does it look now. Where did I go wrong? Any ideas how to fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

    Has a change in the build affected this directory:
    /etc/emulationstation/themes

    It looks like it cant see the theme images?

    Okay, the folder was totally empty. I’ve used source-based installation to compile EmulationStation again and it came back to normal. Going to leave the topic here if someone will have similar problem.

    I just downloaded new image and recorded it onto SD card. Then didn’t touched anything πŸ˜€ Don’t update or install anything.

    I’ve used the same image and the retropie_setup.sh file was in the folder RetroPie-Setup. So what I did was:

    cd RetroPie-Setup
    sudo retropie_setup.sh

    Yeah, sure, just get some software like partition wizard, delete all partitions on your SD card, format it in Fat32 and then re-image it πŸ˜‰
