EmulationStation Themes

Page is WIP

A selection of Batocera-compatible themes can be installed through the menu UPDATES & DOWNLOADSTHEMES. This gives you the option to select a and set a new theme for your system.

Compatibility issues for themes are not unheard of, so be sure to make sure there are no reported issues on the theme you’re applying.

Starting with Batocera.linux 5.24, most EmulationStation for RetroPie and Recalbox are compatible. But some features are unique to Batocera and require a theme that has been designed for Batocera.

This menu gives you a list of themes available like:

In the screenshot above you can see which new themes can be downloaded, and which themes are available for an upgrade, based on their icons. Here is a video example of how to install a theme from the content downloader:

A good resource for downloading themes is Lehcimcramtrebor's Github page.

We create 3 files now
1. ${theme_name}_system -> For main system view
2. ${theme_name}_list   -> For the ROMs list menu
3. ${theme_name}_grid   -> For the ROMs grid view
 
These Pictures will be saved into directory

Select the view for ES (system, list and grid)
So press ENTER to create the pictures.
