Ok, I'm back from hiatus... I've been working on some unified theme concepts to keep things organized. So, I'm now incorporating liquids particle module. Anyway, I have added some custom animations to the presets based on popular old school arcades and this is what I've come up with so far. I will post links to videos shortly. Feedback is appreciated.

My first attempt at creating a vertical themed layout. Defender themed with ship particle effect.

Micheal-

Which one? I am in the process of redoing some of them so they can scale up from 1024x768 to 1080. And, the vertical one I need to make some tweaks before I upload it. Just haven't had time to finish it. But, I will upload whatever one you are interested in :p

I played with the background on your vertical layouts and found if I used gimp to upscale to my monitors 1024x1280 resolution plus changed the sizes in the layout to 1024x1280 the background fit perfectly.
But then it fubar'd the rest. ;D

After adjusting the video window position easily enough I then proceeded to aquire great respect for your work after attempting to reposition the wheel before raising my while flag.

Nitro-

I've figured out how to scale up my layouts with the spin wheel by using cools method. It took a little effort, but I have a good handle on it now. I was able to scale up my tron and supercade horizontal layouts from 1024x768 to 1080 without much noticeable difference. Though, the spin wheel looks a little better at the lower resolutions. I will work on the vertical next and should have it done by tomorrow. But, I will go ahead and upload my tron layout.nut now if you want to get an idea on how to do it. Theoretically you should be able to cut and paste the conveyor and other sections for the vertical layout. Once, you look at the layout you'll get a good idea of whats goings on. You might still have to tweak the coordinates with small increments since I only tested from 1024 and up.

Here is the complete tron layout folder if anyone is interested. It has the new script for scaling to desktop resolution.
