Still (somewhat) works with useless firmware too.

Need a little bit tweaking and some missing icons on the games that are not available on RetroFW.

But I can live with that.

Also Useless is considered obsolete by the devs, so if you just want the emulators, RetroFW is the way to go.

Thanks!

One of the best theme i ever used in my life. Huge respect to you you! You made it way much better from the original one!
Sadly, or i would say funnily, Harmony of Dissonance still listed on GBC backdrop. It's actually a GBA game but everyone seems not noticing it which is hilarious, or just doesn't care. Blended perfectly as GBC game :-X

Yep! I noticed it, too.

There are some other inaccuracies like that. Atari 2600 has the arcade version of Pole Position in its backdrop - the 2600 could never do graphics that good! Also, the Atari 7200 backdrop (pro system) has Rainbow Islands, a game the 7200 doesn't have at all.

But, it's a great theme nevertheless.

Great theme! Appreciate the work.

Any chance we can get some more name graphics for the systems? Emulators which emulate multiple systems don't have name graphics for each so I have no gamegear icon for example. Also FBA I'd love if I could have one for CPS.

Hi guys, first and foremost thanks for the skin. It looks great!

I'm having trouble getting it to look as intended though. I've followed the instructions and this is what I'm getting (see attached). Any idea what I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance!

In skin settings change Menu Columns to 3 and Menu Rows to 1

Thanks for the awesome comic book skin....

I have a quick question:

On the LDK the display looks like the preview picture, however on my RS07 Arcade Mini the display is all messed up crammed to the left  :o 

I tried messing with the skin settings but no luck... Anyone know the settings to make it display the same as the LDK ? 

I would like this view if possible

Thanks

Awesome, where did you get the new version of gmenu? I found a link on github by googling it but it was dead :(

(In the mean time ill try extracting it from the LDK Retro FW image :) )
