Can't think of of anything to add...would be nice if you post the psd, when you think it's ready, it's already great as it is...;)

Had to move the marquee in the layout a few pixel, because the background was showing through. (layout attached)

I have made clear/transparent marquees for the special cabinet which won't cover the marquee (attached 155).
I copied them into the marquee folder - but I advise to better not overwrite (I use total commander and can choose auto rename target file, so I keep the original ones) 

Thinking what to do with the playchoice and megatech cabinets which have a small transparent window for the marquee
(put in cabinetart/make small square normal ones for games or one default? decisions :o)

this is my configuration...looks not nice :P...but is working...

You have to use the Game Short Name in ".scummvm" und put the file in the game folder...
The Curse Of Monkey Island (CD Windows, German) (game/folder)
The Curse Of Monkey Island (CD Windows, German).scummvm (I used the folder name to keep it simpler/this shows up as name in AM/look how your artwork is named to avoid renaming)
COMI (The Game Short Name in the file...nothing else)

you can get the GameShortNames from here:

I used a a tool to copy all folder paths at ones in notepad++ directly and then added ";"s after each (find/replace "x:\RetroArch\Games\" with ";x:\RetroArch\Games\" delete the very1st ; -DONE)...
...can't remember which tool it was to make a folder/path-list at the moment, sorry;)

Hope it helps...

Hello mahuti, github, sorry...
...would be cool to have a tailored layout for the cabinets with bezel, marquee, flyer, infos...eeeeveeerrrrythinggg haha...
...for know I am happy with this...maybe adding the flyerart later to the right and a brickwall-background so the flyer looks like an actual poster on the wall..had it before for robospin..
...but I think the wheel covers to much of the flyer because this time we have a frontal look at the cabinet, maybe I move the wheel down, a upperhalfwheel in the downright corner?...hmm

Thank you for the Standard Cabinet PSD
...with all the layers it is a real -=[Cabinet-Construction-Kit]=-  ;)...
...can you post when you have a final version, please? would wait to maybe add something for myself...
...I like the layer over the marquee I used in the first version of my new black default cabinet in the last download...the marquee looks more milkglassy?backlit?...I like it...
...I think some color was missing for me was black, yellow, red, blue a layeroption? - ahh, the front of the panel needed different color too I think...
...and I would add layer for some control panel, wheel, flight etc.. there are matching ones for this type of cabinet...
This will make it very easy to make some new cabs, the only thing to do manually is to add some game artwork to the cabinet...thanx

Another thing I have to look into is marquees for some big games (for me;) which are missing, I recognized this just recently, marquee for xxxxxxx??? whhhhyyyy?
....I have the complete progettosnaps-marquee-pack, I think it is relatively complete or have I missed another source...maybe some are for clones, I have no clone filter....
...when I have the time...

Oh, Hi other Damon-HP, screenshot looking good, TURTLEPOWER!, best ARCADE haha

Hi matchiz, I unfortunately don't know what is causing it.. . I am on Windows only, maybe wait for mahutis layout or maybe the other Damon-HP can help....sorry...

Had some time this weekend and got rid of the left/right of the Cabinets...looks good enough for me haha (mistakes were made ...might redo/touch up some....later)

...BUT there is now a new Problem with the smaller cabinets like Vewlix...the marquees are too wide and over the edges!

I plan to solve this like this:
a) Photoshop the marquee in the actual cabinet art (most cabinets with unusual shape have it already)
b) and make a transparent/clear marquee with "nothing" for the marquee folder (need this to avoid triggering the no marquee MAME/FB Neo default marque - which is again to wide)

All 1000+ Cabinets without WALL and Shadow Sidekick....for everyone who wants ...

Hi mahuti,
great cutout of the cabinet, never got the edges so clean, i am at beginner level of photoshop ;)
I thought too of only using the control panel but there are too many "special" cabinets that look very cool...
What I would like to do is to get rid of the left wall and the sidekick/shadow at the right...but it seems too much work..hmmm...
...I am thinking how I could use an "invert/ negative" of your clean cutout cabinet and batch-photoshop-away the left/right side with a clear background for all same style cabinets, which must be most of them...
...also a default cabinet in style of your cutout one fits much more in, maybe for 2player 6button star select, all black...
...I must wait until the weekend to try some things ;(...almost there;)

..and here are some additional 290 cabinets from CoinOPSdiamonds 2
Some good new ones megatech, playchoice could be used for several games...have to look which one can be used as universal or doubled for sequels etc. ...
...also renaming...

Hi mahuti, that sounds great,
I have only a psd+layer of the default cabinet (it's 1920x1080, I have all other cropped 1300x1080 for faster loading/size)
This cabinets dimension is slightly bigger with the silver borders etc. than the other ...
...there is a layer for a ridiculous big balls (hihi) stick and a normal...don't recognized it until later...
Would be good to have something like this more in style of the other cabinet, maybe with layer to choose for control panel...
... I think so were the original Cabinets done... and then add the artwork later...
...I tried to batch remove the wall and sidekick on the right (not a fan), but the edges don't look good, maybe someone can figure it out without layer psd...
Have made some "standard cabinets" myself the black ones, for all lightgun, wheel, trackball etc. Cabinets to match with the games,
wanted to add the artwork too for my favorite games, but I am  slooooowwww....haha
...all work no play....;)
psd attached

hmmm..I see you are on Apple, I am on Windows and it works on several Windows-PCs how it is with Fullscreen, 1920x1080 Desktop resolution and RetroBackground...
sorry...can't think of what is causing it, maybe resolution changed to ;)
but if you comfortable to edit Theme folder
if I remember correctly... for "local boxart = fe.add_artwork("boxart", -310, 0, flw, flh );"  -310 is the x position of the cabinet change -315 ... -320 etc. until it is ok...

probably you have to change these two, too...(you can test it before maybe with RAIDEN, which has vertical snap)
...the black background for vertical snaps "vertical_cover = fe.add_image("vertical_cover.png", flx*0.105, fly*0.298, flw*0.374, flh*0.76);" 105 minus the pixel you moved left before...
..same for static vid when no snap "local snapbg = fe.add_image(FeConfigDirectory+"videos/static.mp4", flx*0.105, fly*0.295, flw*0.365, flh*0.485);"

....strangely the screenhigh seems need to change y coordinates...
...don't know about the retrobackground...was happy that all worked for me know my standard theme for mame/fb neo...

Hi, sorry to hear that it doesn't work for you...mine worked fine...

Have changed several thing so you have to download my latest version, which worked fine for me...

Unfortunately you have to download the cabinets again, I have have cropped them to load faster 1300x1080 and doubled wheel, bike, flight, gun, trackball cabinets for games that use them with universal black ones as placeholder...1000+...maybe add some artwork to them later...

You can fast test if it works, by using the new layout, but the cabinets would be out of place by a half...when it worked load and use the new cabinets versions and all should be in place correctly...hope it works...For me it was always a dream to have original cabinet with original controls for each game (sort of) I am very happy with this layout..haha


I use this for MAME...

Hi everyone,

made the At-the-Arcade-Theme working with the CoinOPSDiamondsArcadeCabinetsArt...

UPDATE2: !!!Sorry, have today realized you have to set "enable startup animation= NO"!!!, to keep screen in place, though it was default setting...;(
At-The-Arcade coinup - DYNAMIC changes the cabinet per Game (600+) or uses default Cabinet (boxart = your cabinetart-folder, default Cabinet = boxart.png in theme folder, show boxart=YES)

NEW DOWNLOAD =>Scrolling Down =>Scrolling Down :P


Hi David,

Thank you for the great Artwork, have you considered doing some FB Neo Artwork (wheel, video, etc..)...I Think half the alpha Logo can stay...
...tried myself but...eehhh;)
Would be nice....

Hi, great work...

It would be nice if you could add an "Bezel-Art-Option" for the 4:3 Mode

thanx for the theme!

...ahhh one last....

try to leave "info_source"-field clear/free

Here is my listxml FBA v0.2.97.44 which works (5995 entries)...maybe check roms again with ClrMamePro...and rompath..are the roms in cleaned without rom subfolder?
Maybe test listxml first without an upper folder or P:....

Generated my romlist in AM to test it... and all is ok as always...same settings as some post above...

Good Luck...

listxml FBA v0.2.97.44


Is this the FBA generated list.xml? If not try it there...
