This is pretty unique man! Digging it. Where did you get all the cinematic videos used in the splash screen?

The cinematic vids are all created by James Baker. He makes them for launch box but just added his stuff to arcade punks and retrohumanoid is a great cinematic creator as well.

Fantastic work! This is an extremely well made layout! My only gripe is that the main menu has a limit of 25 platforms/systems and I was able to find in the .nut file where you can change this. However, when I change it to something like 7 local rows and 7 local cols, the highlighted place-holder (a yellow frame) for the chosen system is about 2 or 3 times too big and slightly out of position. Is there any way to correct this?

Just updated the theme version to 1.1. Now you can select the row & column size by yourself. Please download it again in post #1  :)

something that has bothered me from the beginning of grid themes.

after entering into a console,,,,     then you go back to the main menu screen
all of the consoles have shifted positions from their last spots,, it drives me nuts..
to the point that i dont even use my one custom grid theme....

if you have a fix for the ,, i would say it';s the shure shot
