I’ve renamed this thread as we’ve got a group of us (@PapaShine, @Briball, @Thoggo and myself) working closely together as a team on these overlays and it will simplify things if we can reduce our posts to a single location.
Additionally, we will be posting both standard MAME and Retroarch copies for the overlays going forward, starting with Karnov. Over time, I’ll go back over the existing overlays and create MAME lay versions for them as well.
Soon these files will be available for download on a new web site we are putting together that will have a lot of features for navigating all the available overlays. You can see the beta version of it at: verticalarcade.com.
For the time being, for my own files, I’ve set up a new structure on my dropbox that is cleaner and hopefully simpler to navigate. I’ll also be including config files for the Retroarch versions with preset screen coordinates.
I’ve also got a venom-guest-crt shader configuration file with the parameters I’m using for my own setup in case anyone wants to use it. It’s configured to match the screen bezel I’ll be using going forward as well. I love @HyperspaceMadness’s shader, but we want to start publishing these for the least common denominator hardware, so these could be used on a Raspberry Pi setup etc.
The new dropbox folder can be found here:
Shared with Dropbox
There will be two subdirectories, for mame and retroarch.
- For Mame, that folder will just have the .zip files for all the games, just have to drop them into your Mame artwork folder.
- For Retroarch, the directories will match the actual Retroarch directory structure. So copy the config files for each game into the Retroarch config directory on your own machine and likewise for the overlays files.
- To use my own Retroarch shader presets, just copy the contents of the shader directory, but you will need to be set up to use slang shaders and have the venom-guest-crt shader installed in your setup. Longer term I will include crt-pi and other common shader configurations that will be tuned for these overlays.
The old overlay share can still be found here:
