Resizing text for TFT Screen in 4.1



  • I'm probably just being really blind and/or dumb here so feel free to shout abuse (it's late!)

    I can't find where to change the text sizes, in 4.0.2

    mount -o remount, rw /
    cd /etc/emulationstation/themes/recalbox/
    nano /etc/emulationstation/themes/recalbox/main.xml

    Then change all lines for font size from 0.02 to whatever is required (0.04 worked nicely for me on a 7")

    Only emulationstation/themes/recalbox/main.xml doesn't seem to exist anymore?? Or at least I can't find it...

    @matra the folder .emulationstation is in /recalbox/share/system and it is hidden.

    And you should upgrade to 4.1



  • @voljega Sorry, bad wording,

    That's how you change it in 4.0.2. I have upgraded all of my recalboxes now to 4.1 but I can't find out the process of how to edit the text size in 4.1.

    .emulationstation is 'hidden' but easy to access.

    I can't find where 'main.xml' is or even if it exists anymore and the text sizes are controlled elsewhere in 4.1.

    I do however love the change to 4.1 where if the screen rotation is changed, the system screens rotate with it (in 4.0.2 they did not and I had to manually turn everything upside down!)

    @matra so you mean you can't fing the recalbox theme in 4.1 ?

    Did you look in both share and share_init paths ?

    Found it [main.xml] in the share_init path, knew it would be something simple that I was missing! Thanks!
