You are correct again.

The only reason is because i still had the line for font commented out from one of my tests.

Uncommenting it restores the font.

Thanks again for this awesome layout. I look forward to Phase 2!

Looking amazing :)

Requests for current theme:
- Preserve aspect ratio of Flyer/Boxart (Snes boxes in the Flyer display section get squished)
- Display some sort of transparent Platform art in the upper right hand corner, next to the video scroll area, above the Flyer section. ( example: https://github.com/RetroPie/es-theme-simple/blob/master/mame/art/mame.svg, https://github.com/RetroPie/es-theme-simple/blob/master/nes/art/nes2.svg https://github.com/RetroPie/es-theme-simple/blob/master/genesis/art/gen.svg)

Requests based on video:
- Ability to disable Pop/Slide animations on Wheel and Marquee

Keep it up!

-> Thanks. Added Preserve aspect ratio in option, default is No

- Display some sort of transparent Platform art in the upper right hand corner, next to the video scroll area, above the Flyer section.
-> I would like layout is clean up, so will not add image on right hand corner. You can set Platform logo on left hand corner manually like as  my snes screen shot. Make sure select Expert mode in option.

- Ability to disable Pop/Slide animations on Wheel and Marquee
-> If you don't need snap Wheel animation, you can select listbox only in option

 :)

Wow! I love this!

Some constructive (good) feedback / Things I would like to see.

*Simple*
  • Display Game List By: I preferred the Snap Only from your earlier versions. Can this be added as an option?
  • When you add the option for Snap Only, please have an option to control the text color over the Snap. This could be an expert Mode option.

*Expert Mode*
  • When using a not null value for 'OBJECTS.logo.file_name' the system log just sits ontop of the rendered wheel logo. Please add a check to not show the game wheel logo if there is a not null value for System Logo.
  • I would like to be able to toggle CRT effect for the snap on a per system basis. Some newer consoles it doesn't feel right.
  • I would add a note in the display config in AM for 'Game Station Mode' that tells you to look in the layout.nut file for more information. It's not obvious if you aren't already aware.

Just setup different color schemes for each of my systems in Expert mode. Works well and was easy to figure out!
The CRT mode shader worked perfectly and looks great!

Thank you so much for all the time you spent on this Theme!

+1 to Restoring the Snap-Only option.
+10 If you add a snap+title option, where it shows the snap and the title in plain text over the snap.

So I fiddled with your theme a bit and made this turd, I call it gameulation station.





It was mostly for educational purposes, but I can already tell AttractMode is going to need a per-display layout option. Editing the layout to add systems was pretty painful.

Some of the things I modified I'd like to ask as features for Game Station (see attached theme file for details)
- Option to put wheel art above the Snap preview area, instead of straddling the Snap area.
- Ability to disable animation for wheel/logo art (the popping effect in the upper left)
- Ability to disable animation for marquee.
- Ability to disable marquee.
- Remove copyright and comma if there is no copyright and year information (or just strip it out like i did)

Other stuff:
- Ability to modify the time it takes for the listbox to go away, and the length of the listbox animation.

Keep up the good work, this theme is going to be the centrepiece of my emulation rig for a long time.
