« on: February 22, 2018, 01:39:09 pm »
Pimp your RS-97 with my latest skins for GMenu2x!
Please update the skins included in the latest CFW with this new version.
This version of the OldBoy skin now includes icons for all applications, emulators and games (> 100 icons).

PS4
- icons and color theme of the current PS4 menu, clean and high-contrast
- contains settings, application and system icons
- 10 wallpapers

OldBoy
- Is the next-gen near-4k high-res screen of the RS-97 too sharp for your eyes, too?
- Never fear, I made a retro low-res skin to give you the familiar and eye pleasing look of a Game Boy 8)
- contains all icons for applications, emulators, games, settings and system
- 5 wallpaper tints: green, grey, white, brown and blue
- variants of each wallpaper: aged, clean, backround images (26 total)

Zelda
- inspired by A Link to the Past, all icons are 16x16 instead of 32x32
- heart battery indicator
- 3 wallpapers: grass, carpet, stone

Suggestions are always welcome!

Installation
- get the latest version and installation instructions from GitHub: m1024x/retrogame-skin-pack
- to get the previous version with the Zelda skin included download this: previous version with Zelda skin
- Please note that future updates will be distributed via GitHub

Thanks everyone! The OldBoy skin started as a simple Wallpaper and now it's the default skin on my own devive. I can already see other  people looking at the screen wondering what type of system this is...  ;D

Love the Oldboy theme....unfortunately all my emulator icons are in colour and don't suit it!

@VanZan Thanks! Unfortunatelly I haven't figured out how to replace these icons (custom links?). I think @Leo-brasil is facing the same issue with his skin right now. Once resolved, I'll try to add more icons for all my skins.

It'll be a tough job, designing new icons at the same speed @Steward adds new emulators!   :P

Would it be possible to use the existing emulator icons but change their colors to match the oldboy skin?

As there are a lot of icons to be replaced, I would use the default ones or a free alternative as base anyway. Editing them to half resolution and applying the dot matrix look is still a lot of work, but I'm on it to make it complete!

Can this be put on the ROM partition of the internal SD card?  If so, could you put instructions on how to apply it that way.

Thanks and awesome work!

I updated the installation instructions to make clear that you just need to copy it somehow.

Also added a preview of all the icons of the OldBoy skin. Some icons are based on existing icons or screenshots, but most had to be prettied up or recreated completely. A doom logo or an atari console in 16x16 is really tricky  :)
