[MOD][GUI][WIP] Everything new and Blue

Hey Guys,

i just wanted to share my latest work with you (at least some impressions).

I reaaaally don't like what hyperkin did to the RetroN User interface..
i mean... really... a totally red interface for a console where eyen the company name is blue?
nah...

so i did some decompiling, analysing etc and came up with an a little bit altered frontend ^^

i replaced the old-fashioned console images and replaced them by some new, more telling ones ;)

and even the "splashscreen" got some "makeup"... i added a nice old tv and the RetroN 5 itself as a border for the splash image.

and well... as the title says: almost everything is blue now ^^

What do you think about it?

I'll release the mod when i'm fully satistfied with it... shouldn't be that long :lol:

Nice work! At the very least, it's a hell of a lot less jarring than the stock red. Their color choice never did quite sit right with me.

Nicely done! Where do they keep the GUI data/images on the Retron?

inside the "App" ^^

The whole RetroN5 is basically just an Android 4.0.4 "tablet" with a hdmi connector and a gamepad interface.

Therfore i was easily able to decompile the App and change all the resources including the layouts, textes ... and so on ^^
