exactly what i was looking for!

Unfortunately EmulationStation don't work on my computers because of the OpenGL requisites...
But I love the UI.

Waiting to see the final result!

hi xbs,
im having fun with the theme (don't consider im stealing it! just for personal purpose, i won't put it on the web)
just to learn how to modify layouts and adapting it to my screen size.

im trying to find a way to scrap games description but i think there is no way to do that, it's built in the executable file...

Not at all :D
I'm really happy this layout "port" is appreciated.

I'm also trying to figure out how to scrap games descriptions from history.dat file (mame) but I haven't  found a way yet.

I find out the sound is repeated while background snap enabled. The background's sound should be disabled. Below is the script.

bgart.video_flags = Vid.NoAudio;

Well, it's about time you guys started delivering the mail. These are some solid themes guys, Kent you have a good eye for colors. Keep up the good work. Once, I'm done working on my arcades I'm going to finish the rest of my theme that are on hold.  Oh, and where did all you new guys come from? Welcome aboard...
