Awesome theme, thanks so much! And I'm totally not biased because of us having similar names or anything  ;D

Small suggestion - put a dummy png (transparent and 1x1) at cosmo-mainmenu/snap.png and cosmo-systems/snap.png so the log/debug window doesn't spam with "file not found" every ~5 seconds.

Thanks, Cosmo - these are great.

My few missing categories that I'd like to see (and may end up creating) are:

- Linux (I could use 'ports' or PC games) but I do have a fair number of Linux games that don't quite seem like Ports and PC games seems like Windows games to me.
- Steam
- Doom - I have a bunch of doom 1 and 2 standalone iwads that I launch from EmulationStation... would like to do the same in attract mode
- ZMachine - I like to keep my old text adventure games in the launcher

that's about it.

Thanks again.

I'd be interested in that "Doom" one, if you end up making it! Normally I'd think "eh, the 'Ports' menu is good enough" but there are so many standalone games and total conversions based on the Doom ports/engines that I think this is warranted.

You probably tried to click the link for the older version. The link for 1.1 still works. Here it is. https://mega.nz/#!c95zSDiC!LsXoPnMCwA9XMMO5jJ2aj7R1nFfnNuZQRXR0bRHXxuk

Help....I've put the cartart and fanart in the home/pi/.attract/menu-art folder and renamed the files to match my the emulators, but they still do not show up.  The backgrounds however works fine. What am I doing wrong? Currently running on a raspberry pi 3 with retropie 4.2. Forgive me, I'm new to this.

Alright I am making progress.

C:\Users\yes\Downloads\attract-v2.2.1-win64\layouts\cosmo-systems\backgrounds

those files have to match the name you gave the emulator.

Cosmo's Main Menu

Well, after some time fiddling with the code and trying to optimize it, here is my main menu theme. Thanks to David Marti for the unified code.

It includes animations for the background, boxarts, cartarts, you can also mute the videos... and many more!

Preview


Video Previews:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rBgmLg09fA (v.1.1)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g1rN2Suc7VY (beta version)
(the animations are faster on the raspberry pi)

Main Menu Layout:


Systems Layout:


Snes-N64 theme:


Arcade Layout:


Nintendo DS Layout:



How to install:
1. Download the .rar file below, and extract in your computer. Copy 'layouts' and 'menu-art' to:
-The folder you have installed Attract Mode (if you're using PC version)
-home/pi/.attract/    on your Raspberry Pi (use WinSCP)

2. in attract mode go to the menu/displays/ and use this layouts:
cosmo-mainmenu: to use with the displays main menu
cosmo-systems: To use with systems displays
cosmo-arcade: layout for arcade systems. Includes support for flyers and marquees.
cosmo-snes-n64: same as cosmo-systems but better support for bigger boxarts
cosmo-favorites: support for compilation displays. Info about emulator in the text box and it can show console art based on it.
cosmo-nds: support for Nintendo DS dual screen.

-If some images don't appear check that your display name in attract mode and the name of the images are the same (even capital letters on the raspberry)
-If you aren't going to use some systems you can delete their files in the menu-art folder or in "cosmo-systems" folder. Search and delete every image you aren't going to need to save some precious space.

Cosmo's Theme v.1.1: https://mega.nz/#!c95zSDiC!LsXoPnMCwA9XMMO5jJ2aj7R1nFfnNuZQRXR0bRHXxuk (includes the layouts + .psd templates to do the backgrounds and pointers)
Snap videos: https://mega.nz/#!x9AQ2KaT!NmNzWGnKTAO4p1UHMnbnS0PTs20k124-oLcHp44N4kc

FAQ:

Are you going to support more systems?
Probably a few more supported by retropie as:
-Dragon 32/64
-Oric
-Sam Coupe
-TI-99
-TRS-80
-Z-Machine (Infocom games)


No collections are supported? Why?
Collections are a bit personal. I don't use them. Many others probably yes. And you could make hundreds of them and not finish... so no, i'm not going to make them. But i have upload a .psd file so you can make your own backgrounds and images using photoshop. Feel free to share them and if they are good enough i will include them in the theme (crediting you ofc)

It's a bit slow on my raspberry pi!
If you are having slowdowns on the main menu or you feel its a bit slow you can disable the animations or boxart and cartart. With everything off it should work much more faster. 

Some systems don't have images!
If some images don't appear check that your display name in attract mode and the name of the images are the same (even capital letters on the raspberry). Rename them if not.
Hi cosmo
This complete set is amazing
The only thing is i cant get nes background and pointer to work ?
Ive changed names on other systems to make them work and there fine
Any chance you could do a nes one on ita own so i can put it on that way
Many thanks danny

I was wondering if anyone know's how to theme the EXIT page? Everything else looks amazing thanks to Cosmo's theme. I know I can change the EXIT wheel and even put a snap via the menu-art folder in attract mode. Any help would be appreciated.
