Krakermans Bezels formatted for Retropie Use

Recommended Posts

a user by the name Krakerman is currently making and sharing Arcade Bezels at the Hyperspin forum

http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/forums/topic/14790-arcade-xperience-4k-bezel-and-marquee-project/?page=22&tab=comments#comment-292487

His Bezels are formatted for RocketLauncher use on a 4K monitor,
I converted everything for use with the raspberry Pi by re-sizeing the images to 1080 and made all the necessary config files

I asked him if I could share them with other retropie users, but he only wants his work distributed trough the emumovies FTP
if you are a supporting member feel free to download them from the emumovies FTP

/Upload Here/_RocketLauncher Media Submissions/Krakerman/Media/Bezels formated by 32assassin for Retropie(Raspberry Pi) use

how to install
you will find 3 foldesrs in the "Bezels formated folder"
arcade-bezel-Krakerman
LR-Configs
shader

  1.  

you will need to connect to your Pi via an SSH
upload the folder arcade-bezel-Krakerman to this location on your Raspberry Pi
/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/overlays/

  1.  

the config files use two shaders, one is for 4x3 games and the other shader is for vertical games
crt-pi-curvature
crt-pi-curvature-vertiical

their is a high probability that you already have this shaders in your Pi , if you don't
you will find them in the Shader folder

add them to your Retropie shaders folder at
/opt/retropie/emulators/retroarch/shaders
(please note that this folder is just a shortcut, when you click on this folder it will take you to the correct Shader folder.

  1.  

The Per Game Config files are found in the LR-Configs folder
this files go in the same folder where you have your roms.

I'm using 3 diffrent emulators
Final Burn Alpha --> most of my Capcom Games
Nego Geo --> for most if not all the Neo Geo MVS games
Mame Libreto

each config files needs to be added to the correct folder,
for example if you are running 1942.zip with MAME Libreto
the config file 1942.zip.Cfg found in the FBA folder needs to be added to YOUR MAME Libreto rom folder.

  1.  

Please note that MAME has updated some of the rom names
after adding all the Per Game Config files to your rom folder, Make sure they match all your Rom names.

Final Note,
Please do not distribute this files outside of the emumovies FTP
if you are not a supporting member, ask Krakerman to upload this files to the emumovies download section.
so that everyone without an emumovies account can download them.

final final note
you should periodically check for updates, Krakerman seems to make 10+ new files each week.

Hi, thanks for this guide! Some of the bezels are showing up but making the game black, or making the image dimmer and not showing the bezel. Checking the .cfg doesn't seem to indicate a problem, so I'm wondering if you've encountered this and how to rectify it.

EDIT: fixed 3 Count Bout because it was still in 4K resolution and needed the screen cutout. Most any that don't work are showing the bezel but the game and Retroarch config screens are backed out. 

EDIT2: fixed it. In ex: custom_viewport_height = "*919" you need to remove the * lol, so I'm going to try to figure out how to batch edit these .cfgs :)

thanks for the info

I updated allot of Neo Geo bezels from generic Neo Geo with the flyer to game specific bezels. 

Make sure you have the updated  cfg files; the 3countb should have a height of 946

custom_viewport_height = "946"

but your right 3cout bought dimensions,  it must of slipped trough the cracks. along with

alpham2

androdun

aodk

jailbrek

nova2001

resized versions where just uploaded.

 

if you can make a list of the bad config files I can update them.

edit I think the only problem is with vertical games

I found 

1942 ,1943    --> updated in the FBA folder (FBA folder fully checked for problems)

to have the same problem

 

I will make a vertical games XML for the MAME folder and check the rest when I get a chance.

I found 44 vertical cfg files in the MAME folder that had the problem.  All cfg files have been fixed and updated to the FTP.
