Themes / racoonbox for pie4 unbranded, demo
« on: December 24, 2020, 06:25:15 AM »
so there is this really cool basic theme for recallbox only the pi3 and under

and it was branded with this really kind of creepy racoon logo with red eyes,

and not for the pi 4 yet,   so i have taken out all the branding,  made it for AM pi4 :)

no offence to the makers they did an amazing job..  but cant stand to have their names and logos
all over the theme,    should have out in a week or two for new years....


if you want to get it ...let me know what u all think
will have an update vid in a day or so,   to show off with game

General / pie 4 AM install
« on: November 13, 2020, 06:59:16 AM »
hey guys,  a few days ago  Mahuti posted his compile instrutions,

and they worked just no errors,   but after i go into ES and their is no option to restart
in AM,  then whent to console, and put in "attract"  like ya would in lynx but no go
using winSCP  i can see were it all was sucsesfully compiled,

anyone know how to get it to possibley run...thanks 

This is my compile instructions on Raspbian Buster on Pi 4. I have totally different instructions for the 3b+. Started with a CLEAN RetroPie install... i tried on a few other installs and didn't have much luck, so I started clean and it worked then. After adding other stuff in, it still seems fine.

Code: [Select]

sudo apt-get update; sudo apt-get upgrade

Scripting / system menu "game counter" release.....
« on: October 19, 2020, 03:12:15 PM »
hey guys just put this together... it is a quick drop in folder for any
system menu theme that that will show the number of games in a system.

this is borrowed code, so generously from yaron2019 from the pcca layout.

basically all you do is drop a folder in your theme, and add one lines of code
to your theme, done.

Code: [Select]

small preview....

here you go,  it is in a small layout so you can see how it works....
after that all you need to do is just put the folder inside "syscount"
into any theme and should work fine...

note : to alter text position, color, placement.. .ext the code will need to be changed by you...
this just simply puts it on deck for you to use...

will be adding options soon,  just not mutch time....

Scripting / bg, video stuttering Q:
« on: June 21, 2020, 01:47:01 PM »
was woundering if any one might have a fix for this,

when artwork is on screen,  with background video playing,  with the games that i can see on screen,  can select the game i want
and the bg vid is nice and will loop just fine,


when i select to far left or right,   it updates to the new game artwork to be seen,  and the bg vid will stutter, momentarily
the more you go the faster the stuttering wil be..

i think most peaple here kind of know what i mean.....

so is their somthing that can be done,  to keep the bg vid smooth and not say update,  or what ever it is doing?

thanks guys..

« on: May 18, 2020, 05:43:22 PM »
