Hey group,

I’ve been making system media for quite awhile now .. that I re-use when making various themes with.

I’ve also been working on a massive Attract Mode overview file repo to try and cover as many systems/games as I can.

I’ve uploaded them to Github for all to download and use.

You can see them in action in several of my Attract Mode themes.  Here’s a Youtube playlist link to my themes to see demo’s of the various media.  (my themes also have threads here on the forum)

Hope some find them useful!

System Images

These are (mostly) larger transparent PNG images for systems.  Most are fairly large PNG images so can easily be scaled down and used for all kinds of theme purposes.

Arcade cabinets (I also made a whole slew of them for the various break out boards)
Consoles
Computers
Handhelds

Github link:
https://github.com/dmmarti/system_images

==========

System Flyers

These are 2D flyers for not only systems but also a lot of Collections too. 

There are two styles:

standard:  these are 2D flyers
bordered:  these are 2D flyers with a category white border around them (dictating what type of system/collection its for)

==========

System Wheels

These are transparent PNG wheels for systems and various collections.

There are two styles:

transparent:  these are transparent logo/wheel art
oval:  these are oval styled versions of the logo/wheel art

==========

System Videos

I use the Unified style of system videos from EmuMovies for my Attract Mode builds.

I’ve also made a heap of new ones in that same style.  I only use 720p videos since I use these on my Windows PC as well as a Raspberry Pi/RetroPie build.

Unfortunately, due to the size of them all, I cannot host them on Github.

I’ve uploaded them all to a 1fichier online storage location.  This way, bulk downloaders like JDownloader can be used to download more than one-at-a-time.

Attract Mode Game Overview Files

I’ve been compiling a large Github repo with game overview files.

They are named using the No-Intro/Hyperspin naming.  I’ve been able to gather quite a large selection from MAME to consoles/handhelds and older computer systems.

There’s almost 50,000 files at this current time.

-original post-

Here's a new theme I'm working on (will be given a proper name later) showing the scrolling of the Overview game descriptions.

Special thanks to @jedione for the help!

Getting the Overview files scrolling vertically was one thing I've always struggled with....but now I think I've got it!

Themes / Neon (WIP) horizontal theme
« on: November 22, 2019, 05:12:54 AM »
Here's a work-in-progress horizontal scrolling theme I've been working on.

There's still a few things I'd like to work on, but I think it's in a usable version now.

The neon_menu theme uses the menu-art/flyer images when scrolling while the neon_systems theme includes them within the theme itself.

There are two themes:

neon_menu - used for the main Displays Menu / Nested Menu displays
neon_systems - used for the individual system displays

The download link is located here:

Here is a short video demo of it in action.

In my build of Attract Mode, I've set the LEFT and RIGHT arrows to be previous game/next game for a more normal scrolling feel.  I also set the UP/DOWN arrows the same way .. makes it easier to use themes of both styles (horizontal and vertical) and have a more normal scrolling feel on the gamepad.

Here is the download link for system flyers.

There are two versions.  A standard version and a bordered version.

Themes / BigCade - arcade oriented theme
« on: November 16, 2019, 02:27:28 PM »
Here’s a simple theme for arcade related displays.

Its setup to use MAME marquees.  It’ll display a default MAME system marquee (matching the DisplayName) if a game specific one doesn’t exist.  It includes around 35 or so MAME system marquees.  There is a layout option to toggle game marquees on/off.

There are four color choices for the cabinet image (blue, red, green, and yellow).

The download link is located here:

MAME marquees

Here’s a download link for optimized MAME marquees (flyers are also included in the download).

Place them into the appropriate folder and make sure to have your Attract Mode's emulator config file setup with the correct path for "marquee".

Themes / MVSOps (CoinOps style theme with MVS cabinet)
« on: November 11, 2019, 03:58:49 AM »
Here’s an MVS oriented version of a theme based upon the CoinOps theme.

Its setup to use MAME marquees and flyers.  It’ll display a default MAME marquee/flyer if a game specific one doesn’t exist.

There are three color choices for the background image (blue, red, and green).

MAME flyers and marquees

Here’s a download link for optimized MAME flyers and marquees.  I found using too high of resolution PNG files caused the wheel navigation to lag a little bit.  I’ve resized the PNG media so now it’s more responsive when scrolling.

Place them into the appropriate folder and make sure to have your Attract Mode's emulator config file setup with the correct path for "flyer" and "marquee".

Themes / Hyperflash - Hyperspin theme conversion
« on: October 25, 2019, 05:55:23 AM »
This is a conversion of an older Hyperspin theme called Hyperflash.  It was originally a 4x3 theme created by Sem Cranio.

I think someone here on the forum was working on a port a little bit ago, but I never saw it released.

I've re-created a similar looking background image in 3 different colors (red, blue, green) since the source PSD file could not be obtained.

The download link is located here:

Themes / Cosmic Rise - Emulation Station theme conversion
« on: October 23, 2019, 12:46:55 PM »
Over the past few years, I've worked a lot with Dwayne Hurst (the Emulation Station theme maker), and have ported a few of his themes to Attract Mode.

This is a conversion based on his Cosmic Rise theme.

There are two themes:

cosmicrise_menu - used for the main Displays Menu / Nested Menu displays
cosmicrise_systems - used for the individual system displays

They are for 16:9 formatted screens.

The download links are located here:

Themes / Hyper Themes - Emulation Station conversion
« on: October 21, 2019, 05:50:24 AM »
Over the past few years, I've worked a lot with Dwayne Hurst (the Emulation Station theme maker), and have ported a few of his themes to Attract Mode.

This is a conversion based on his Hyper themes.

There are over 175 backgrounds, but only 20 are able to be chosen via layout options to be permanently shown.

However, you can choose "random" in layout options and Attract Mode will randomly show any of the available 175 backgrounds each time you go into a display.

There are two themes:

hyper_menu - used for the main Displays Menu / Nested Menu displays
hyper_systems - used for the individual system displays

They are for 16:9 formatted screens.

The download links are located here:

Here is a short video demo of it in action.
