It's in a first post (at the bottom).
You have to be logged in to see it.

Sorry about my english , i wanted to say is : is more funny for me to create original one than just copy the work of another person.

Yea, no problem. :D
Now it sounds TOTALLY different and this is the best approach.

One piece of advice. If you want this to run flawlessly on RPi you should test your theme on RPI from day one (on actual hardware). Attract Mode themes are not that efficient - especially when using surfaces - and RPI can easily choke. You have to optimize or make some features optional to make it run on RPi.

i think it is more funny to create one that will be just a copy of another personĀ“s work.
"Funny" is not the right word. It looks more like "copyright infringement".
Especially if you are planning to copy a commercial product - it's far from "no harm done" use of some fan art, especially if the author allows it. There is no "personal use" that can justify this, as the original product "mGalaxy" is intended for personal use.
Looking for inspirations is one thing - but copying a commercial product is not a good approach.

Also, I'm sure you're underestimating both the importance of those backgrounds and the time/effort/talent that goes into creating it. If you strip the graphics from the theme like this - you'll end up only with wheel game list and a snap.

@keil
thanks for your help

@jedione
we can go just with that simple list, but since keil wants to help with favs it worth to have a shot - to have shuffle as an option

Thanks. It will do the trick.

Agree, "last played" filter would be great!
I've realized I play only a bunch of games over and over again.

Thanks for sharing - unfortunately I'm on a mac, so no RocketLauncher for me :(

I'm pretty sure it's not theme-related.

I'd focus on that error "Error opening romlist: Attract Mode Setup"
Go to your emulator settings and re-create romlist.

Themes / Re: [download v1.0] FLAT BLUE theme released
« on: May 25, 2019, 10:08:53 AM »
Can't help you with the code, it's my design but the theme is coded by Chris Van Graas (chrisvg).

If I were you, I'd simply search the code for the word "wheel" and start to tinker there.
Or just put your flyer/boxart into your wheel folder (or change the path for wheel graphics to the flyer or artwork folder). You may want to tinker with the size probably.

I've tried that - it doesn't look good.

But I'm not planing to code it - you are on your own with modifying the code.
I'm working (with jedione) on a dedicated vertical layout - check this thread: http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=2903.msg20159#new

It shouldn't be that hard. It's just a matter of changing position of all elements.
So you don't have to change the code - except the position/skew/pinch/size


I've made a mockup how it could look.
Check it HERE

Yes, I'm providing all the assets. Exactly the same as in my mockup.

The thing is AM handles transparency somehow differently than Photoshop - usually... not as good :D
So I'll have to tweak this later to fix the look in AM.

And yes - the font is squished. And it shouldn't be like this - but it's just a start.

« on: May 15, 2019, 12:19:09 AM »
If I had to choose - I like the Epsilon more - but it just because the menu is better (bigger).

As for the system change - it should be more substantial. I've watched it a few times to catch the system change.
It would be great if there could be some sliding effect - like the next system "pushes" out the current.

I also like keilmillerjr's idea on having a plain version with no control panel.

Yea, that's the plan. That is a mockup shown in a real cab. it will be just a 2D, full sceen design - without the controls.

===

And the good news - jedione agreed to code this. So keep your fingers crossed.
