I’m so glad it’s all working now! This would no doubt be a problem anyone wanting to play Blood would have if they updated their Debian to Buster, ie the current stable release. I actually haven’t played Blood yet, so this will be a great time for me to try it!
Also another thing. Re: your initial thoughts on copying a file to your PC, renaming it, then copying it back; be very careful with doing that in general, even for other apps. You could potentially lose permissions etc during the move process. You’re always better off doing most renaming/copying/moving processes via a command line.
As for how to check your clock speed, go into settings, scroll down to the about page. You’ll see both your clock speed and your kernel. That’s the easiest way. There are other ways to also check via the command line.
You don’t need to worry about changing it every time. What the script is doing is copying different .dtb files to the boot partition, setting the clock speed on boot. I’d probably mainly recommend turning it off when compiling big files. Sure it compiles faster, but if you’re using all four cores, boy does it get HOT!
@ghostronaut It’s definitely something that’s a part of the whole visual package, and my whole initial reason for making this custom image. I can’t take credit for the skin, since it’s just a special version for the DEOT edition Gameshells.
Now I see why they disabled the skin chooser in the original DEOT release!
That said, I will definitely be making some kind of switch script to allow standard skins to be used. I’ll probably also need to have another script to enable/disable the skins page from the settings menu, depending on which mode you’re in. I’ve posted the original files in that Post I linked you above if you wanted to try your hand at it.
At the end of the day, all of that trouble is simply to have a brightness and volume page that’s slightly different. Perhaps it’s not worth sacrificing being able to use different skins over this.
Speaking of which, thanks for reminding me - I need go standardise some applications to have their icon file only in the skin directory, and not in the source directory. Eventually I’ll run out of things to do with the image!
Also!! If you ever do change your skin, and it refuses to boot, it’s actually just the launcher that’s locking up. You can still SSH to your gameshell to change things back. You’ll want to edit the contents of
~/.gameshell_skin (it’s a hidden file)
Just change the name of the skin you’re using to DEOT, then reboot with
sudo reboot or just reload the launcher.
