Display menu brainstorming
« on: May 02, 2019, 01:28:19 AM »
I struggle with how to handle designing a display menu (platforms). Looking for opinions.

My current displays are:
* Arcade
* Neo-Geo MVS
* VS. Unisystem
* Turn off arcade option

I believe either hyperspin or emumovies had platform videos. Did not include the unisystem. They were just previews of games, and i might not even have the game in my romlist after global filters applied.

Assemble my own preview video? Without access to other lists, i cant easily cycle through artwork for selected display. I could do a generic logo background or something? What are others doing? This is the reason ive kind of stayed away from a display menu and just have a key cycle displays.

I kept it pretty simple with my DisplayView layout.   If you've not checked it out,  feel free...
