Console & Game Themed Bezels

These custom console themed overlays for Retroarch were assembled and designed to look they way they do by me, Orionsangel.

Some credit goes to Reignstumble for his amazing artwork

Credit is also given to RetroKenesis for all the excellent border frame.

Looks great, It would be even better with some European versions for Super Nintendo and Mega Drive, and no Gameboy Advance version?

I was also going to post that it would be awesome to have the European Super NES version (same as the japanese Super Famicom but with “Super Nintendo”). Great job though !

Retroarch added a good core for the Atari7800 so I decided to make an overlay for it. Enjoy!

Hi great work! Do you have the borderless 7800 yet? I didn’t see it in your pak I downloaded.

Hello @Orionsangel

I know you had no issue with me including your arcade overlays in my arcade compilation, but I have also copied your consoles overlays in another pack :

I hope it’s ok with you ? Please let me know if you have issues with it.

Thank you very much for your awesome work :slight_smile:

No, it’s alright just add credit and my link.

I’m having real trouble getting these to work on my Pi 3 with Retropie.

I’ve placed all the files in the overlays folder as shown in the video, but when I go to settings and select Onscreen Display overlay and choose the overlay I want to use, it just makes my screen go really dark.

It doesn’t load the overlay at all. What am I doing wrong?

EDIT: I managed to do it. I edited the files to 1080 in Photoshop.

However, do you know what the offset resolution settings would be for 720p? My PS emulator is laggy at 1080.

Here are some for you

I’ve been getting asked a lot on how to add overlays to Retroarch. I hope this helps you guys out.

For the people asking, what if different systems use the same core how do you setup individual overlays for each one? It’s easy. Just go to your core directory, make copies of the original core and rename those cores whatever you like. Example…

Your work is simply amazing.


Do you have any intentions to do something similar for arcades?

IIRC your (also amazing) overlays for arcade games are not compatible with Retroarch and can be used by “regular” MAME only.

Thank you. My arcade bezels can be used with Retroarch. They just have to be setup appropriately to do so.
