Starting EmulationStation

You should have seen your splash screen on boot and hear your music startup shortly after emulationstation started. Congratulations!

Picking a Theme

Hit start (menu) scroll down to UI Settings, then Theme Set, hit left/right to pick your theme, back out to emulationstation. You should see your theme applied.


We are all done. Let me know if you would like additional pages around things like hiding the boot screen output, configuring controls for individual consoles or anything else you can think of. Just let me know in the comments.
