OK, I wanted to challenge myself to do something different. So, I created a cockpit theme based on wing commander, one of my favorite old games. I remember being mind blown playing it for the first time. Anyway, I think I've created something different and cool. The animated hand still needs work. Here is a link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8qHY5ehym3c&feature=youtu.be

I hope to release this soon if anyone is interested.

feature : depending on scrolling through romlist, the fuel notification gets more and more empty (on half romlist => half fuel ; nearly at end of romlist => fuel nearly empty)

I had already thought about animating some of the light gauges but the fuel gauge is an awesome idea. Thanks...

This might be overdoing it, but what about putting the previous and next snaps on the sides of the cockpit, maybe faded back a bit so you can still see the stars?

No, too much. Never mind! Looks great! :)

Nice job.

Maybe you could use a font that is a better match for blocky pixel graphics?

This font definitely looks much better and organic to the theme. So, thanks again.
