Nice one. Anxious to see it. My first idea was something like that, but i couldnt make it. I dont understand very well the grid layout code.

Fantastic! I just got it set up but no matter what I seem to change in the control settings, I can't seem to make it scroll left or right. When I scroll, it makes "clicking" sounds but there's no movement, except if I go up or down. Any suggestions?

Edit: problem solved! I had configured "left" and "right" in the controls with another layout, and that was causing the problem. But I did find an unusual issue. When you scroll left to right, the video doesn't change (it keeps playing the previously selected game) but it changes when you scroll up and down. Also, I do have a question, is there a way to reduce the grid to less boxes with a slightly bigger size?

Thank you :) I got that problem solved before but the problem which exists is the issue I mentioned in my (edit) post, where the gameplay video of the previous selected game continues to play if you scroll left or right, and it doesn't change if you scroll left or right. Only up and down movements affect the video function.

Very very nice interface :D
I can see in the source categories in layout.nut, line 534? how to we use that ?
"h" key show an history page but seen to be stuck on the same one for few games...
the only bad point in scrolling is slow, then you go down it takes time, instead of allow fast scolling then loading videos and stuff so for big lists would be tricky to go to a given rom (do layouts permit to search for a rom by name ?)
Anyhow, very good theme, look forward  to be able to use it per mame system once i solve that listsoftware import issue

The performance is depending on your pc's cpu & harddisk power. Actually, I think it is hard to be improvement through by coding ( My skill is weak  :P )

For searching game issue, you may enable AM search game plugin for do it firstly. It is not the best. but I will study how to improve it. My ideal is combine ArcadeBliss & AM search function. I don't say it can be done for me finally since my skill limitation, but I will try  :P

I'm having an issue with fonts. The menu text appears as white blocks and I have no idea what any of the text says.

Any ideas?

So could anyone help me out trying to put this layout in hyperpie 2 for a Theme Gallery Downloader but having issues with the layout.
