The new RetroArch does not support the .cgp files in My RetroArch Shader Presets.zip. Can you update your configuration?

Which version is the "new" version specifically that breaks this? I want to ensure I don't get caught by it.

Amazing job. You'll make my dreams come true if you can make one more overlay with the Sinclair ZX Spectrum ?

Shaders not compatible with Retroarch 1.90, at least. If anyone has and can share modified shaders or new .lay format :) … actually, is the .lay format compatible with Vulkan?

Hey @Mr. RetroLust I've been testing out some shaders recently and have noticed that the screens for your amazing overlays in most cases don't work well with integer scale in retroarch enabled. However, integer scale is needed for many shaders to work properly (when scanlines or dots are used). This is especially noticeable in some handheld systems. Whereas your GB and GBC bezels do work with integer scaling, GBA does not. 5x5 is too large and 4x4 is too small for your bezel. I've found other GBA bezels that work with integer scaling, but these do not nearly look as good as your bezels.

Are there any plans to update the bezels so that they fit an integer scale in the future?

Ah, too bad. Not sure, what I'll do about the shaders then. Maybe Ieave them off for GBA and other handhelds then... I really want to stick to your overlays...

I'm stupid. I just found out that Retroarch allows for rescaling and moving overlays. So I got it to work. ?

I know I already told you once that these are great, but i figured i'd stop by again and say damn bro, these are hands down the best retro bezels ever created. ive been using these for maybe a year now and you notice all the small things, fine details, when your using them to game for hours on end. I have completely redone my gaming pc to match your retro themes as well, for a seemless arcade experience. I owe you a huge thanks, i can tell these took alot of time to make. I know your busy with the lights off arcade bezels which also blow my f**** mind, just wondering if you will ever return and update this pack a bit? Gamecube one would be perfect as i run all those games in 4:3. I really enjoy these handheld bezels too, the thumbs just add realism to me. Would be epic to get NDS/3DS but i understand why you wouldnt want to do the hinge style bezels. Also, you might know this already but you can add more than one bezel to that retroarch cfg file and kinda mash your "color themed" bezels of the same type together. For example gameboy color, its the same bezel just a dif color, and since youve done such a superb job of aligning these they seemlessly switch between themselves. Just set a hotkey to switch bezel and edit the cfg file. The cfg looks like this;

overlays = 6

overlay0_overlay = Bezel_Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Transparent_Mr_RetroLust.png
overlay1_overlay = Bezel_Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Purple_Mr_RetroLust.png
overlay2_overlay = Bezel_Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Green_Mr_RetroLust.png
overlay3_overlay = Bezel_Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Pink_Mr_RetroLust.png
overlay4_overlay = Bezel_Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Blue_Mr_RetroLust.png
overlay5_overlay = Bezel_Nintendo_Game_Boy_Color_Yellow_Mr_RetroLust.png

overlay0_full_screen = true
overlay1_full_screen = true
overlay2_full_screen = true
overlay3_full_screen = true
overlay4_full_screen = true
overlay5_full_screen = true

overlay0_descs = 0
overlay1_descs = 0
overlay2_descs = 0
overlay3_descs = 0
overlay4_descs = 0
overlay5_descs = 0

I made some other cfgs as well for like jap games, they use the famicom systems instead of USA by using retroarchs "content directory" cfgs, you can change the bezel "if" content is ran from "t-eng" folder, etc. which was a really cool find.

Anyway keep up the great work man, i stop by here every week to see what ur up to. salutations.

Thanks man for all the compliments :) Once i'm done with the mame bezel project i'll spend some time to add new systems to my collection and make bezels for them to share with you guys. That hotkey switching of the bezels is a great find! Atm though i'm completely out of the retroarch loop and all it's functions, i'm far behind on RA versions as well.

Trust me man i know the pain, i hated updating my RA and losing all settings....they say you can just copy paste but we all know that can sometimes ruin ur settings and stuff. last time i updated it broke my setup and had to reinstall RA so i kept mine kinda ancient for quite some time lol. Pretty sure the hotkey bezel switching has been there forever i just overlooked it like most people. I remember using it on psp and ps3 and it had that feature. Recently i updated RA and redid the whole thing since the LB team is integrating RA sometime this year. This time i wont be losing anything when i update i setup custom dirs. Well when you get around to this jus shoot me a msg if you need help with the bezel cfgs, id glady write them up for ya if you needed me to.
