« on: February 22, 2018, 01:39:09 pm »
Pimp your RS-97 with my latest skins for GMenu2x!

This skin pack changes the appearance of GMenu2x that is included in the custom firmware for this device. Please update the skins included in the latest CFW with this new version as I keep adding icons for new emulators, games and applications. All skins support the old menu style and the new GMenuNext style.

Update 2018-07-20
- updated OldBoy skin to use brighter colors and default background
- added missing CFW 2.1 icons to OldBoy skin
- replaced pixelated OldBoy font for readability

Update 2018-06-25
- added realistic emulator icons to PS4/PSNext/PSDark skins
- new sections/apps/settings icons for PSNext/PSNextDark

Update 2018-05-08
- updated PS4 and Zelda skin to support backdrops
- tweaked contrast of PSNext/PSNextDark skins
- OldBoy does currently not support backdrops

Update 2018-04-30
- skin pack also includes the a updated version of the Zelda skin

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!

The latest version (download in first post, not yet in CFW 1.2) includes all icons so that you can go full dot-matrix  8)

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  :)
