Thanks for sharing your work.

I just need to convert it to portrait mode.

Great stuff! And it's really nice to see a theme being made for the systems menu, which I've yet to see up until now :)

Great theme for consistency across all systems.

And I just want to add that your script for generating the favorites list is awesome. I just switched back to Retropie with Attract Mode from using RecalBox, which had a fork of emulationstation that merged all system favorites to it's own list and was really missing that for about 2 days until I found your theme

Hey dmmarti, the generate favorites script is being kind of weird. i can watch the terminal while it's happening and it shows it grabbing all of my favorites from each system, but at the end of it, the final list doesn't have either the fba or neo geo games listed...it's weird. Any thoughts?

Hi - It looks great and many thanks. I've setup as per instructions and everything is fine except no art appears in the displays menu. I've only using FBA and MAME (mame4all).  There's text to indicate those two emulators but no art. Can you advise ?

David

I am a great fan of your project. I would like to contribute this little image for the Game and Watch Display of your Unified Theme
I am no designer and my only tool was paint. I know you are going to come up with something better soon (don't forget to add Nintendo DS :))
but in the mean it will do.
The funny thing. I added the image to the /home/pi/.attract/layout/unified/background folder; and I gave it the name of the emulator/romlist : Game and Watch.png
and it won't load
I added a pointer, and no problem with the G&W pointer
what am I missing ?

you might know me on youtube  as Alexis-Bryan. Thanks again for all the help so far.

Hi,

I have just got into retro games and after much searching and trial and error settled on attract mode as my front end of choice.

This theme is excellent and I have managed to set it up on a Windows 10 machine.

The only thing I'm struggling with is converting the favourites script into a dos batch file. Has anyone already done this?

Thanks
