Add a Graphic to a Custom Collection


I’ve created some custom collections however i would like to add a cover graphic for a collection instead of just having text and a black screen . I’m using the default theme for emuelec on both the Odroid Go Super and the Odroid N2+. Any help on this would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

Yes, that should be possible. I expanded the theme “ARTBOOK MASTER” by adding a graphic for karaoke instead of having just the text. Here’s how I did it:

  1. Go into system / collection-folder of the theme (e.g. “c64” or “dreamcast”)
  2. Go into the subfolder “_inc”
  3. Use an editor like to open/edit the .svg-files (“system.svg” and / or “art.svg”)
  4. Create your own design
  5. Save them
  6. That’s it.

You can also change, edit and experiment on the “theme.xml”-file in the folder to change the whole appearance of a theme, but be sure to make a copy of the original file first - in case you mess it up.

Thank you Sir! I will try this out. Very much appreciated.
