[Theme] Clean Retro

    @sheyk90 low quality background, but hope it works

    I konw it, but is the solution. Raspberry is not powerful...

  • @tarraske @nico-irano @sheyk90

    Found a good solution to all problems with this theme. Every time i tried to exit a game, a black screen happend(and ES got killed). If i set gpu_mem_1024=384 or lower, white artifacts started to happen instead of loading background/system title/ whatever images.

    If gpu_mem_1024=512 was set, EmulationStation would be killed by Linux Out of Memory management, since there was not RAM enough

    Solution to make this theme work:

    • Set gpu_mem_1024=448 on /boot/config.txt (64+128+256)
    • Set overclocking to 1300 inside EmulationStation (i have a MEGApi case and this, a working fan)
    • Reclaim some extra memory by disabling web manager, recalbox api and Samba share. DON'T do this if you are using a system where you are putting roms or tinkering constantly. Edit /recalbox/share/system/recalbox.conf with the following parameters: system.samba.enabled=0, system.api.enabled=0 and system.manager.enabled=0
    • Set static gamelists through the interface. Again, you should have a good rom list aready working cause new games will not be dinamically included.

    @nwildner gpu_mem_1024=384 is the default value in latest beta version, and will be in the next release.

    EmulationStation is never killed by any OOM manager. It just crash when available memory is too low or too fragmented.

    Anyway... there are simple & clever things to do in order to avoid OOM without cutting off half the Recalbox services: DO NOT INSTALL 1080p THEME ON RASPBERRY PI! 🙂 720p maximum for background images.

    I have a full system Recalbox and no memory issues when using a 720p theme.

    Yeah, i saw that on Gitlab 🙂

    Since the theme creators can't post things here due to copyright issues, and i don't really think they want abandon the 1080p resolution on their theme, guess i'll have to stick with other themes.

    Puting the theme on mega.nz or any other file-sharing system avoid copyright issues.

  • possible de mettre à jour le thème pour la version 6 de recalbox ? ne marche pas

    Could be great to think about EDIT EACH FIRST THEME POST to indicate before anything... witch version of Recalbox is compatible with this theme.
    Like : TESTED/Works on Recalbox 6.0 RC2 (DATE OF TEST)
    And edit the post title, for exemple : THEME : Next Pixel (OK Recalbox 6.0, April 15), or THEME : Next Pixel (Recalbox 18.xx.xx OK, Recalbox 6.0 WIP)
    This information must be on the name of the theme + topic, to see if there is update avaiable for theme's users.
    And on the other hand, it's very important, to see if there is all systems supported, and not particular problem...

    What do you think about ?

  • custom mix image for scraping

    could you send me the image mix xml file for scraping in the scrapper program? pauloarquiteto@live.com

  • Acabo de probar el theme en la versión 6.0 y no funciona, se queda la pantalla en negro, alguna solución?

    I just tried the theme in version 6.0 and it does not work, is the screen black, any solution?

    thx in advance

    @Fab2Ris on ne peut pas rééditer un ancien post (sauf le staff)
    le seul moyen pour l'auteur de modifier son post et de le demander au Recalbox Staff de faire la modification
    Mais oui ce serait bien que les informations sont tout en haut pour les thèmes ça éviterais de tout descendre 😉

  • A very elegant, beautiful and classic theme! I love it! I think it's not fully compatible with Recalbox 6.0. Is there any updated version of this beauty?

    Many thanks!

  • Themer

    Sorry for the late reply and update about the theme.

    I can confirm that the latest Recalbox version have bring back an old issue where the theme backgrounds are loaded without limits until it fills the ram and shows white. On previous versions where it was fixed it was only loading previous and next systems. Maybe 3-5 I don't know. But we were able to use high resolution 1080p backgrounds. We're in 2019 and

    • putting the system in 720p
    • turning off samba, api and manager

    are not solutions. By the way I tried 55 systems with 65kb image files and this issue still persist.

    Someone at Recalbox have to fix this issue. I understand that the RPI3B+ is limited in term of ram but this is an issue that has been fixed in the past. My old backup image works flawlessly with 1080p high resolution backgrounds.

    People here are also asking for the theme, just check the latest replies. It's not only me that's asking for it.

    Thanks for reading me and hope this will be fixed anytime soon!

  • Themer

    I just tried 65 systems with the theme on Odroid XU4 and it works flawlessly.

    RPI3B+ needs a fix.

    ES Always loaded all themes. This is not a "New" issue, it's a matter of total system count in only 1gb of memory. We already tried to adjust the CPU/GPU balance, but we can't do much more.

    @bkg2k you can load current system and its nearest 4 neighbours and on moving to next / previous, unload farest system and load new closest one

    For instance id if I currently see system D and the list of systems is A B C D E F G, only B C D E F are in memory.
    On moving from D to the right on E, B is unloaded and G is loaded, only keeping C D E F G in memory
