Hey group,

I've recently created an Attract Mode theme to use on my Waveshare GameHAT portable console and wanted to share it.

You can download it via Github.

https://github.com/dmmarti/am-theme-gamehat

It's a minimal theme ... but easily readable still.

You can use it for any display (Displays menu, nested displays, systems, etc).

Below are screen snapshots (taken on a normal Retropie/TV setup - not the GameHAT since it's very hard to take live screenshots on) that will demo what it looks like.

To make use of the genre icons - your romlist files need to have the Category value filled in.

The screenshots show:

1) main menu for Arcades category
2) nested menu for Atari Classics
3) Atari Classics system menu

I re-coded my normal 720p system snaps into a 640x480 resolution to use on the GameHAT. 

The game snaps are the SQ quality versions from EmuMovies.

If anyone wants my converted system snaps (there's about 270 of them - all systems plus a ton of collections)...I'll post the link as well.

Hope some find it useful!
