    New Recalbox release == new Next Pixel release

    After a glimpse with 1.1 release (only available for GPiCase), here is 1.2 release for Recalbox 6.1+. This version brings lots of new system themes along with lots of adjustments. Here are major new features you'll get with this version (and some features already added from 1.1 for those who missed it):

    • Add new package for small 4/3 screen with 320x240 resolution, compatible with GPiCase
    • Add random support from @voljega [script]
      (https://github.com/Voljega/scripts4recalbox/tree/master/Randomizer)
    • Add video scrapping support
    • Add arcade support with a collection style image
    • all recalbox 6.1 systems supported
    • lots of new alternative game themes for already existing systems
      Complete changelog for 1.2 and 1.1 is available here.

    Since more and more systems are available, i created Next Pixel website so you can see all system images along with all system alternatives. Most of you may have not noticed yet but lots of systems got several alternative images included. Read documentation to get more info on how to switch to alternate game theme for a system and don't be shy ask me if you want a new one.

    Check initial post for more info.

    And last but not least enjoy Recalbox 6.1 and Next Pixel theme 1.2!

  • Hello,
    Can you confirm that the pack for the GPi Case is this one?

    @jejehtc yes that's it



  • Hi @mYSt Thanks, great new backgrounds 🙂

    Unfortunately I have an issue with music:
    I just upgraded to RB 6.1 and latest 720p version 1.2 of Next Pixel theme on Pi 3B+. Now music of your theme ist much louder than sound in-game. I have no idea how to fix this, but I guess the only way would be to reduce volume of sound files in your theme...?

    I have another suggestion about alternate theme for future: A Resident Evil theme for psx and/or dreamcast would be great! 🙂

    @lhari84 Oui des ajustements des sons de recalbox ont été fait juste avant la sortie, je n'ai pas eu le temps de normaliser mes pistes dessus, ca sera corrigé dans la prochaine version

    Edit : Pour resident evil si tu veux le 1 ou le 2 c'est pas gagné il y a très peu pour pas dire pas de source interessante sur le net, assez surprenant pour ces 2 jeux culte



  • @myst I‘m not speaking french, but Google translator helped a bit.
    Thanks for normalization of audio.

    regarding resident evil backgrounds, that‘s really strange because of part 1 & 2 there are even remakes on many platforms that should guarantee source material. too bad 😞
    ...RE code veronica (main part of the series on dreamcast) has no remakes yet, in this case it‘s even worse for sure.

  • @myst Looks fabulous!
    Does the preview-video come from screenscraper?

    A bit off-topic, but as you already are implementing it, you maybe have an answer:
    Is it possible to add preview videos only, WITHOUT touching other meta-data of existing gamelist?
    I'm asking because it took me a long, long time (almost got insane 😄 ) to modify and correct everthing to what I'd call perfection (correct titles, release dates, genres, descriptions, pictures...) Screensraper data is good, but many things are incomplete, in a bad format or wrong so far, though.
    So I don't want to re-scrape everything and correct it again, but just ONLY ADD the preview-videos to existing meta-data...
    I'm currently using software "Skraper", if this helps.

    My heart hurts when I read comments like that. Why on earth would anyone correct things locally and not in the ScreenScraper database, so EVERYONE can profit from all the needed improvements. The database is cummunity driven and too many people have spent countless hours just so someone like you can just scrape and everything is (almost) perfect for you. If you would have corrected all upstream, it is just a matter of rescraping, as many times as you want, and you would get always better results.



  • @myst +1 pour réduire le volume, je me suis fait surprendre en changeant de thème !

    Sinon c'est vraiment du beau travail, j'adore ton thème !


  • Banned

    @paradadf the screenscraper team asked for help here and didn't even bother to respond to questions.

    and furthermore you can have a very specific scrape setup like your own genre names or what to hide or not which doesn't align at all with screenscraper

    @lhari84 everything is from screenscrapper but with custom mix, that means scrapping everything again (withcache not a huge deal) but maybe just save your gamelist xml before scrapping (skrapper can save it automatically) and reapply them after scrapping

    @myst La vidéo avec le boitier 3D + et la cartouche à côté, c'est pas (encore) réalisable, si ? Parce que c'est ce que je voulais faire avec Skraper et j'ai pas pu (ou pas réussi) !

    @voljega maybe, but as you know, it isn’t usually the case. I always try to fix grammar and wrong encodings upstream when I find them. No many do that.

    @scavy Si tu parles du gif video que j'ai posté, non ce n'est pas possible directement. J'utilise un mix custom et j'ai du adapter un peu mon theme. Je plublirai tout ça pour la prochaine version du theme.

    C'est drole on l'a évoqué ce matin mais ne compte pas trop la dessus c'est trop complexe pour pas dire impossible en l'état.

    @myst Oki, je comprends, je ne me rends pas compte de la difficulté. C'est déjà génial qu'on est la vidéo lol On en veut toujours plus mais on sait être aussi content de ce que l'on a 🐵



  • Short question: Do I need a special Mediaset configuration for scraping media with Skraper?

    @starmagoo Hello! What do you mean with "Mediaset"? For now you may scrap with any mixes but i'm working on a special mix for better video integration
