Kayser-

Create a folder under layouts for your .mil and resources. Then under display pick the new mala layout.

Did you generate or import your romlist? Once you create a romlist make sure the info matches the roms and snaps. Typically, no-intro romsets and snaps.

Thanks , now shows  the games on the list and i´m hable to play them  but i´m having two problems

1º - no videos
2º - the name of the games appears as the roms

Is there a way instaed of the name of the games show a png image of the game ?

Can i upload my layout for you to take a look?

Kayser-

Sure... Post it.

For the videos, make sure your snap path is pointed to the video folder. As for displaying png images instead of game names, you can try the grid layout or cools layout that has both. You could also create your own custom layout and do it however you want. FYI, there is a layout.md in your attract folder that covers the basics on setting up a layout.

Kayser-

OK, fixed it for you. For whatever reason set visible snap was = 0 in your mil file. Now, videos and images work as they should. I also included the grobold font this layout uses in case you don't have it. Just right click on the file and select install. 

If you want to adjust the snap size, edit your .mil file and go to line 118. Image height and width are self explanatory. To move the image down use a greater value in snapimageTop=220 and a lesser  value to move it up in small increments. Same for snapimageleft=60, lesser value moves more left and greater value more right.

SnapImageTop=220
SnapImageLeft=60
SnapImageHeight=400
SnapImageWidth=480
SnapVisible=1
SnapDefault=
