Themes / [WIP] Genres/Category artwork for Mame
« Last post by zpaolo11x on Today at 08:56:25 AM »
I've started a project to implement in the next version of my theme. The idea is to create genre or category icon for all my games. I had some rules to follow:

1) Being my theme Mame and arcade based I tried to find all the category names that are available, in catlist.ini, category.ini, catver.ini etc, then I parsed the genres/subgenre format so that, for example, Sports / Boxings becomes sportsboxing.png.

2) I wanted some retro look and a stylized vibe so I decided to limit myself to 16x16 pixels artwork with only one "color" (plus transparent background).

It's a huge work (I'm at 85 icons done, plus ~100 to do) also because I decided to do all the subgenres and not only the main category... you can see a preview of the artwork here :) Overall it's great fun trying to convey a category idea with that reduced resolution, also because if you want to reference a famous game for the genre sometimes you need to reinvent and scale down the sprites :)

Hello, my distro has Attract-Mode 2.2.1 am I right to assume that to get the url update for legacy.thegamesdb.net I need a newer version than that?
That's a bummer it's been a while since I had to compile Attract-Mode.

Did this ever get finished and released? I use flat blue on my Windows build, it would be great to have a more responsive version on the Pi

=setup menu / any option
depends on, what you want to configure

>AM itself
in AM : press TAB key

>emulation station
exit AM (so you are on commandline / bash) > type:
Code: [Select]
emulationstation
>RetroPie
exit AM > type:
Code: [Select]
cd RetroPie-Setup/

sudo ./retropie_setup.sh



=AM send me to command prompt
if you exit AM, you will land to bash (commandline) by standard. So that's correct



=Do I turn of power from there?:
it possible in commandline, if you type:
Code: [Select]
sudo poweroff
it's possible to power off automatic, if you exit AM:
start AM > press TAB key > General > Exit Command : sudo poweroff

or by pressing a hardware switch:
Here



=get from AM back to Emulation Station:
start AM > press TAB key > General > Exit Command : emulationstation

It would be perfect - I just need that first chamfer to be deeper. Don't need that inner black border. But the chamfer should be the same width as the inner black border.

I can do all the tweakings you need, but if you can draw some indications on the image so I know what do you mean by first chamfer and black border it would be much faster. Also you can PM me if we don't want to clutter the thread :)

The AttractMode "tagging" feature would be best for this instead of folders.

Great! I didn't know this AttractMode feature. Thank you so much!
