Post Your Overlays!

Recommended Posts

Hi!¬†ūüėĄ

I figured we needed a thread for posting user created overlays, like the one over at Libretro Forums. I hope the LB community can use this thread to show off their new overlays!

 

For newcomers; Retroarch allows you to overlay the emulated video output with an image. This is useful if you want to maintain the original aspect ratio of the game's original design. The most beneficial result would be filling the fugly bars on either side of the image with something nice and visually pleasing (nostalgic).

temp.thumb.png.8d5bdbd3955b968616c83204f032ac74.png@orionsangel has an excellent tutorial for setting up custom overlays in Retroarch:

 

*****Notes for Posting & Usage*****

 

*Please try to list the rendering resolution of the core/emulator, along with the aspect ratio of your overlay.

 

*As a courtesy, please get permission and/or give credit to the original content creators if you re-post, or re-upload elsewhere on the www.
