DisplayBeta Theme
« on: April 22, 2019, 04:50:17 PM »
I've put together a pretty simple DISPLAY MENU theme for my own arcade cabinet use... I'm considering putting a little work in to it to release to the general public.  I'm not sure if it's worth doing though as I am not sure if anyone uses display menu themes much on their arcade cabs.  In any case... here is a quick demo of what I have...

I need your help... ALL your help...

Watch this video to get an idea of how easy it is to add logos to my newest display "Display View".  Of course I need to have those logo images "on hand" for it to work...  Currently I have about 50 different logos... I need all suggestions of logos you'd like to see.  CONCENTRATE ON ARCADE ... not console.  Sorry,   but my layouts have always been arcade-centric being low res and what not.

I already have the most common of course...

Atari
Nintendo
Sega
Exidy
Williams
Midway
Cinematronics
Irem
Cave
Data East
Gottlieb
Konami
Psikyo
Taito
Universal
Namco
Centuri
Capcom
Visco

I also have:

CPS1
CPS2
CPS3
Trackball & Spinner
Shmups
Pac Man Collection
Mortal Kombat Arcade Collection
MAME
AdvMAME (Full, NoClone and Favorites)
MAME2003 (Full, NoClone and Favorites)
Final Burn Alpha

I also have a few Miscellaneous "Arcade Classics" type ones.

Any other suggestions?!?

was wondering if you could share your AM "romlists" folder with all these,   that is if you

have them set up..   

then all we would need to do is use one mame set, and replace the romlists as needed...

I only have ROMLISTS setup for CPS1, CPS2, CPS3, NEO-GEO and a couple more. 

It's pretty easy to create custom ROMLISTS here:  http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/lista_mame.php

I could share the ones I have if you wish.  Some were created before I found the site above,  so they are incomplete (no player #, controller, button info, etc).  They were generated from the older ARpiCADE software which didn't include that info.

BTW... I do believe you can filter a single list by category in Attract Mod... no?   I've not tried yet... maybe I should... I wonder how robust it is.

There is a 'blank' photoshop document file included.  Basically all you need is an image (preferably transparent) of the same size as the rest of the images (320x120).

PNG format works best.
