Game Thumbnails

Lakka can display three types of thumbnails for games in playlists:

  • In-game snapshots
  • Title screen snapshots
  • Boxart

Lakka provides packs of thumbnails suitable for use with many emulated systems. These thumbnail packs are recommended for most users and can be installed in two ways:

Once your Thumbnail files are in place, go to Menu Settings, and change the Thumbnails option to reflect the type of thumbnail you prefer to display.

Users who wish to create their own thumbnails for use with Lakka can do so by naming and locating the image files according to the RetroArch naming convention. Images must use the PNG format and must placed in the Thumbnails directory: /storage/thumbnails. Thumbnails should follow this naming convention: /storage/thumbnails/<Playlist_Name>/<Thumbnail_type>/<Game_Name>.png
