Yes please re-add. Theme looks awesome and I need to try it out as my cab is running an 3:4 monitor.
Thanks in advance

VERY nice one, I would love to use it in my cab (featuring an old 4:3 LCD).
But I also second in having the marquee *above* the game video.
Besides this, perfect!

Hi, I very much like the idea of having two separate cab images.
I always disliked the vertical images being cropped/resized into a square display.
Thanks, Tom

Hi, attached is the German translation.
However, I think there could be some optimizations done in general (no criticism intended, just some thoughts).
First of all, it is somehow confusing that the en.msg contains less entries (lines) than the originally available translations and I had to take a translated file (e,g, es.msg) as basis for my work. For some entries I had to cross-check with the en.msg so 3 files open in parallel which was not really comfortable.

It would be really great to have one "source" file with all the entries as a basis, even if it would mean the in the en.msg you had some "silly" mappings like
but with the benefit that we all knew exactly what to translate.

Furthermore, there seem to be some hard-coded menu entries where I could not find an equivalent in the file, especially in the Plug-in section, see attached screenshots.

Cheers, Thomas

OK, thanks.
I already started my German translation based on the French one but got stuck since some lines had no English equivalent and my french is somehow rusted ;-)
So I re-start on the Spanish
Cheers, Thomas

WOW! Impressive
I really like those "dots" in the letters in the first half of the video. Nice retro look

Hi, both look great but I'm wondering if someone not familiar with Attract Mode would read Ver A as"Attract Modc" maybe?
What I'm saying is that the "e" very much looks like a "c" to me

General / Re: Rom list filtering
« on: May 28, 2015, 06:56:04 AM »
Hi, with regards to catver.ini: place it in the MAME directory (where the executable is)
Purpose is to categorize each game, e.g. like this
av2mj1bb = Tabletop / Mahjong * Mature *

So it's easy for you to e.g. filter out all the "Mahjong" games which anyhow nearly nobody plays ;-)

Furthermore a quote from raygun:
in the emulator configuration, one of the fields is called 'additional import files' or something like that.  Put the full path to your catver.ini file in there and then regenerate your romlist.  That should pick up the categories.
