Lookin great!
Would it be possible to make thumb adaptive? snes box covers look especially bad squished that much. I think that Arcadeflow is one of the themes that adapts thumb's aspect to the system name.

What good news Jedione! ;D Will you have any option for the covers of the games? For example, as seen in the following image:

Yes, there is no other way to do it unless each user creates their own artworks. What I wanted to know is if the layout will have the option to show, in that section, flyers or fanart. That is what I meant. In my case, I use layouts for arcade games usually, not for consoles.

That's great Jedione. Well, if you think that way it will be better ahead. Anyway, once it is available for download and I can prove it, I can tell you with better accuracy that it could be improved. If you agree.

here is the idea im going to add in to the cover flow...

possible option "on off"

it is cropping the snap, via a surface, and using mipmap, to help it out.

Very good idea that option! Especially for people who don't know how to design covers. Will the name of the game, the number of players and the genre at the bottom of the images remain? This detail looks great.

Yes, it is true that "it is easier said than done." The truth is that it is very good, I really want to try it.
