    @moff I appreciate your comments. Thank you. I did not select the regions/clones for the rom list. I just checked my Launchbox and didn't even know that 1941u was the main rom selected for 1941. When I right click on '1941', all the clones are listed under the same heading. I think that was due to how Launchbox bundled the roms when I imported them. I do agree that some versions of certain games are better than others, although, I didn't choose which clone should be on those lists. Honestly, that would've been too tedious for me. But, I'm also the kind of guy who likes X-Men to be the 6-player version with 3 screens and would take the time to set up my controller to the character that I like.
  2. I am currently working on more 'game' specific overlays/bezels. I would like them to be in a corresponding forum category. But, currently there is only a 'platform' category for bezels. I've already posted my NES black box games bezels there. Any chance we can have a game specific category for them? And once you have that, can you move my post there? Also, @nadonate has a few game specific bezels that could go there, too.

    ProjectTalk:- Bezels Bezels Bezels

    Just giving you an idea of what I've been working on, lately. So far, I have 28 new NES game bezels made. Still need to add TV frames for the Thin TV and Thick TV sets. Just stopping in to give you guys a heads-up for the work in progress.

    NES Black Box Games Bezels and Configs for Retroarch

    It's all good. Maybe you can make some sort of mention of me? If not, it's ok, it's all for fun anyway. Glad you like the bezels. I've got a few more NES game bezels coming. These new ones are taking me longer to make. The black box games had sort of a template to work with.

    Just played this on my phone. Can't wait to get home and see this on my 55 inch screen. Thank you for this. I love it.

    So, has anyone had any trouble playing the light gun games on Retroarch? They were crashing on me any time I pointed the mouse off screen. I found a solution, but it's a not-so-great one. In order to play those games, you must disconnect (or shut off) your controller before you open Retroarch. I'm using a wireless X Box 360 controller and it was shut off when I discovered this. Now, I can point and click at those ducks without getting an error message. Yay!

    First, select the game. Then under 'Settings' find 'Onscreen Display' and select that. Then pick 'Overlay Preset' and you can choose the config file for the bezel of your choice. Then under Quick Menu find 'Save Game Overrides' and click. The game should open with the chosen bezel every time. Thanks Nyny77. I admire your work. Great to hear from you.
  12. @massatomic Thank you.
