I was happy to use this thread reccomendation when I ran RetrOrangePi v.3

Now these overlays are missing, and even from the RetroPi configuration you cannot choose overlay file from the menu.

I supposed that was the best method to improve perception of NES or SNES games on large LCD.

What is the alternate now on v4.2?
install from retropie-setup , configuration, retroarch, assets

anyway, there are scanline overlays with console bezels in /home/pi/RetrOrangePi if you wanna try
Thanks! Which approach (shaders vs. Overlays) would you recommend?
you can use the shaders from /home/pi/RetrOrangePi which has bezels and scanlines (might affect performance of demanding platforms) or the overlays suggested in the other thread
Thanks. I've tried to choose the shader for nes in the livretro emulator propetirs, so it would work all the time, but that menu has only list of shaders, and no other path selection. Same for overlay in this menu, except there are no files to choose there.

How can i install the shaders to be used by certain platforms by default?
you can change shader and overlays location on Settings - Directory then locate and set /opt/retropie/configs/all/retroarch/ or /home/pi/RetrOrangePi as default
(or simply / so you can look all over the root filesystem)
after selecting the shader/overlay, from Quick Menu you can save in Overrides - Core (will save selection by platform)
