Hi all,

I've been working on this layout on and off for a little while as I had a couple of bugs that I couldn't seem to iron out. After a moment of clarity (read:sobriety) I think it should be working pretty well now. It's basically an expanded version of my Vertical theme here: http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=2120.0

It's very much aimed at CRT cabinets running at 640x480. I haven't tried it in 320x240 but it would probably work fine with some tweaking to font sizes and such.

I've included the layout and the attract mode config file because it very much relies on both the displays and filters being setup in a particular way but it should be easy enough to follow. Ask any questions if you want any more info.

(Note that I haven't finished my games lists yet so there's a few blanks/rom names showing as titles etc)

Features:
Switch between game list view/history/artwork with a button press (button 3)
Switch between system/genre/year/controls with a button press (button 2)
Switch between filters (based on above list) with a button press (button 1)

Uses the animate2 and history scripts from arcadebliss so credit to those guys for being awesome

Hope this is useful to someone!
