I made some small modifications to the theme. Here is the result listing PC Engine games launched then through mednafen pce_fast. Works great so far :)

I am using the EmulationStation opk posted in the first thread and just edited the xml files to reach this result. I will commit all files on github soon.

Could we have a copy of the xml files to experiment? Thanks in advance.

Here are my current test files. This include es_systems.cfg and your full neogeo preview pack (thus the big file size). Please look at the config file if you need to edit emulator paths. Tell me if you miss something. Maybe you will need my mednafen and fba build?

The files need to be stored in your ~/.emulationstation folder

Nice. Does anyone have a video of how ES looks on the GCW? From startup?

I moved all of my files so the videos and images aren't accessible anymore. If I find time, I might be able to whip up a tutorial of sorts.

ES works perfectly in my opinion, you just can't use the ES Scraper because it was never implemented. Pretty difficult right there.

I would love to see this get done in full would be awesome, bet it looks great on the zero

EDIT:ok got it working with gba but how to display the emulator background?

EDIT 2: Ok its working with a theme now, I just used the theme from the windows version of ES and edited the config to match, it could do with scaling for the font size so you could read the game names better ;)

If we can get this working for the Retro Arcade RS-07 that would rock!

Good news: I have it running now! Also added an archive of some required toolchain libraries; just copy those over and you shouldn't need to compile any.

opk here
libs here
git repository here

Complains about system entries, buy I'll let you handle that.

If you're still here, could you help me compiling emulatstation?
Could you repost your pre-compiled additional libs?

At this moment my cmake complains missing freeimage package
