Everytime i load up a GBA game the overlay takes up all of the screen and i see just the center of the game. I have gone into the folders and completly removed all GBA overlays yet it still appears. Is there a setting in retroarch i need to find? thanks!

This one was tricky and was not straight forward for me
(i cannot remember exactly what i did but hopefully i can point you in the right direction…).
I initially hardcoded the png to one mario-&-luigi-superstar-saga.png (Nintendo-Game-Boy-Advance-Bezel-16×9-2560×1440.png) b/c i hated the existing overlay but wanted something besides the awful bezel that covered too much.

Location may vary:


overlays = 1

overlay0_overlay = Nintendo-Game-Boy-Advance.png

overlay0_full_screen = true

overlay0_descs = 0



overlays = 1

overlay0_overlay = Nintendo-Game-Boy-Advance-Bezel-16×9-2560×1440.png

overlay0_full_screen = true

overlay0_descs = 0


There is also a config file here:

overlays = 1

overlay0_overlay = gba.png

overlay0_full_screen = true

overlay0_descs = 0


I used the Bezel Project to download Bezels for Process Retroarch 
                      Once done online updater -> update overlays  (in Retroarch will help)

In the end i have a nice set of overlays; some show, others don’t.
I suspect rom naming convention or some other break in path name, etc…but in the least it gets rid of that awful default GBA

Good Luck!
