I was under the impression that that already worked for menus like it does for reloadable images and text, but I will check.

Feature Requests / Suggestions / <menu> additional parameter options
« Last post by igarikoitz on August 16, 2018, 05:07:20 PM »
When you create a <menu> tag and use <imageType> you are limited to displaying the image of a folder with the name of the system or game. Example:
If the game is called "fatal fury" it will load the image fatal fury.png that is inside the folder called logo.
Code: [Select]
<menu type = "custom" imageType = "logo" scrollTime = ".3" scrollAcceleration = ".15" orientation = "horizontal">
Now, if you wanted to show the image of the developer of the game so that it synchronized the animation along with the logo of the game using <menu> tag, the only way there is now is to create a folder called developer and create an image called fatal fury. png to put it like this:
Code: [Select]
<menu type = "custom" imageType = "developer" scrollTime = ".3" scrollAcceleration = ".15" orientation = "horizontal">
I would like to not be limited to show only the images in that way. I would like to use the <menu> tag to show the images / text of the game information that is saved in the meta folder or in the recent info files.

We could use <menu type = "info" imageType = "developer" ... like this example:
Code: [Select]
<menu type = "info" imageType = "developer" scrollTime = ".3" scrollAcceleration = ".15" orientation = "horizontal">
This could be used to synchronize animations between the elements of the menus and the animations of the system / game information. In this way we would give more consistency to the movement between the different elements of the menu. Afterwards, each one will use whatever works best for them, either <menu type = "info"... or <reloadableImage> / <reloadableImage>

Share your theme / Pandora's Box 16:10 (1280x800)

A small introduction. Hello (I'm writing through an interpreter). I decided to adapt my old laptop Acer Aspire 3680 for retro games. By tests, I found out that the RetroFE runs on it. I liked the theme Pandora's Box HD, and I modified it to the resolution of my laptop - it's 1280x800, 16:10. I really like the result, and it works well, but sometimes the video stops working. Maybe it will come in handy.

Yes, you can use modes layout, commonlayout and systemlayout for that; just check the wiki for the places RetroFE will look for each file in each mode.

Hi Ginzu, I had some time to rebuild my system and I got my theme to work again.

To make the controller.png images appear in the menu , do the following:

1 - Suppose you are working with the SNES collection, copy  "controller.png" from the RetroFE/layouts/Minimal Completionist/collections/Super Nintendo/.

2 - Paste it  to RetroFE/collections/Super Nintendo/system_artwork/.

Do this for every system that you have and it should do the trick.

For all theme builders here, a question:
 Is there a way to populate the main menu with these images without having to move them out of my layout folder? I really want to do this in a more self-contained manner.
