Game Overlay/Bezel for Dolphin Emulator

Recommended Posts

So I've been doing a lot of fooling around in Retroarch lately, and I've finally been able to figure out how bezels work (for platforms and individual games), along with auto save states for some games I don't have time to do in one play through (Sonic on Genesis for example). I'm really loving that I can have overlays for 4:3 games on my 16:9 monitor. I have Dolphin configured per game, so some games are 4:3 while others are 16:9, all depending on how the extra space gets drawn (or doesn't in some cases). I wanted to see if anyone knew of a way to configure overlays in Dolphin. For the life of me, I can't figure it out. So any help would be fantastic.

Is the Dolphin core even in a stable state yet? I haven't checked it out yet, but it also just came out, so there might not be a ton of info related for that specific case yet.

I actually didn't know there was a dolphin core for RetroArch. I just meant the standalone Dolphin emulator.

Ah. you said Overlay so my mind went to RetroArch. Unless you're using RL, only some emulators utilize Overlays (RA and MAME). Some of the things you said, like configed per game, also jives with RetroArch. xD Past that then, sorry I am unsure.

So bezel for dolphin.  Does this mean a gamecube bezel?  I know there are some of those for Rocketlauncher.  I've seen them working before.

I'm not too familiar with RocketLauncher, I thought it was more of a LB/BB alternative. But I've also seen some tutorials about using LB with RL symbiotically. Does launching via RocketLauncher give you the ability to launch with an overlay?

Yes, but the time and energy it takes to configure doesn't make it worth it for me in my mind. If that one feature is desired enough to go through the trouble, then sure go for it. Support will be a bit more limited though, because most of us aren't using RL, so we can't speak on how to fix or deal with it. It used to be a much bigger deal for people, then slowly RL's unique feature set grew smaller and smaller as LaunchBox updated and added more or alternate features. From what I can read, RL may not have been updated in a while too, so some of the LB changes may confuse it. Again though, I'm not exactly sure and that could have been fixed.

I'll see if I can get a dolphin bezel going tonight.  There's only a few things to try.  If it doesn't work, then I just deal with not having it.  but so far, I have a lot of bezels through RL.  Works awesome.

I actually don't remember if I got it to work or not, I've been using the Nvidia Shield TV as my emulation box lately, but I'll try to remember to check it out when I get home.
