Are there graphics for diff/instrument selection? (raspbian)

Postby Azzco » Sat Aug 03, 2019 4:16 pm

I'm trying to get FoFiX running on a raspberry pi 4. Getting FoFiX 3.121 on Raspbian wasn't too much of a hassle but I ran into an issue with some text just being completely black, namely pause menu, fail menu, editor menu (select instrument and difficulty) and the streak messeges.
Pause and fail menu could be fixed by grabbing graphics from a theme and editing theme.ini, the streak notification is more of a distraction anyway and nothing that bothers me. The main issue is the prompt right after selecting song if there's more instruments/difficulties available. Background doesn't show however I try to change the file. Now this is probably a raspbian specific problem with some font library not being compiled in a normal way.

Can one add graphical menus to difficulty and instrument selection? If not can the background be changed to white somewhere?

Exactly *how* did you get FoFix running on Raspbian?

A couple of months old answer i know.. And its been years since i did anything FOF related. but the answer is.... YES.
You should be able to alter any of the graphics, fonts, backgrounds, for the base game or for a theme you may be using..
It should all be interchangable.. Not sure how you go about doing that, but YES it should all be changable.

Actually, if the base graphics are giving you some issues, have you considered using one of the "themes" it should change loads of the gfx in the game for other ones.. That might help you out as well..
