Minimal Completionist
« on: October 09, 2017, 07:01:27 PM »
My first RetroFE theme.
I tried to make something who doesn't need a ton of art assets to work. I'm quite pleased with the result.

I like it as well. It gives a nice clean interface without requiring people to download a lot of artwork.

hello dlol,


excellent work!

how could i display my controller's pictures?  they won't show.
i read the readme file you gave with the archive,
i put one png inside my media/<name of my system> but it doesn't work too, then i placed the picture inside media/my system/images, it doesn't show too...

what can i do to have controllers pictures like in your video???  :P :o

and
is there a tutorial somewhere to create theme like this?

this themeremain my favorite since i discovered it.

thank you

Hi Ginzu,

I'm just getting back in the scene, since I've lost most of my emulation-related files a few months ago (thanks Seagate  >:(). I'm currently reconfiguring RetroFE and trying to get things back the way they were. Once I reconfigure my theme, I'll post instructions here.

Glad you like my theme, btw!

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.

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.
