    == Upcoming Release ==
    Folders and XML Cleanups (File Structure Simplified)
    Single .svg logo will be used for main and sub-menus
    Adjusted various sizes
    New System Images

    == Theme Reason ==
    My girlfriend wanted to make a theme for me, and well this is it’s story.

    Id like to introduce you to “Turtle Pi” theme, which was intended to be sort of a crossover between “Piulator” and “simplified_static_[canela]”. We wanted it to be as simple and easy to design as possible to your own liking as well. We also wanted it to be clear, easy to understand and easy to read.

    The “Shadow Turtle” is also hand pixeled by me, my girl friend likes to call it the “Loch Ness Turtle”.

    We plan on completing all of the emulationstation system types as well, with a possibility of changing the front menu images/svg. It should as well be compatible for all the other operating systems as well not limited to rpi.

    == Menu Editing ==
    The .pdn files have multiple layers so you can easily click what you want on and off. Sort of like a Turtle Pi Buffet.

    Create your own Menu
    1.Background
    2.Overlay
    3.Text
    4.Logo

    Create your own Sub Menu
    1.Background
    2.Overlay
    3.Logo
    4.Add/Remove Scraper Separation

    Example of the .pdn -> Paint.net

    Thanks InsecureSpike, it’s been helping a whole lot. The camera shots wasn’t very practical lol.

    Customize your own shade of Headers, some of the headers were redone or modified to fit better on the top. We also didn’t want to strip some of the official colours from the systems, since it made it seem very bland.

    .Pdn file type for Turtle Pi Buffet (Headers and all the systems).

    I’ve been trying to figure out a new IBM replacement image. I wanted to take more of dosbox aspect to it so figure a command comp command would look better.

    ex.

    You need to click on it to see it since it got blacked out, if anyone has any suggestions let me know.

    Do you have an idea when this may be completed? (I’m assuming it’s still a WIP)

    No i don’t, but it is fully usable as it is now. The (WIP) is more to just let everyone know that i’am and will be continuing to update it.

    Ah fair enough,

    Just thought you could submit it to the RetroPie themes repo and update it as and when (so people can then download the latest version through RP itself) ?

    Some Sega images, dreamcast & genesis are also done as well. Added shadows to the bottom and top overlay to give it more dimension.

    Hey there, I just noticed this while searching the forums for some help on an unrelated problem. I had a quick look around and I didn’t see you credit the artist for the backgrounds you’re using, Vlad Gerasimov. It would be cool if you did, he probably doesn’t mind you using them so long as you aren’t making money off his work.

    I actually didn’t know his name so i couldn’t give him credit, i can’t edit the first post so ill credit him in the source.

    Thanks for letting me know
