This looks really great! Good job!

I'm just starting to learn some of the code, but I'm not that great yet.

I notice from the first layout that the layout didn't adjust to my TV's resolution. I was wondering if this code would fix that:

local config = fe.get_config();

local flw = fe.layout.width;
local flh = fe.layout.height;

//Background
local bg = fe.add_image("bg2.jpg", 0, 0, flw, flh);


Do you think this code would be a good idea to fix that?

Last thing - and I'm just curious - but would it be hard to have an wheel option to make it either "wheel, listbox, ver_wheel"? Sort of like the Robospin layout. I'm happy either way but I personally like a vertical wheel (straight up and down) more than a spin wheel for this layout. I thought I might ask - I can't wait to try this out!!! Thank you again!!!

Thank you so much! I can't wait to play with this!

I'm the same way, I'm not a programmer I just take code and alter it the way I like :)

First of all, nice work! This is a sophisticated theme.

constructive comment: AM allows you to use relative paths. This will allow your theme to work on any platform the user might use.

If the object you want to use is in the lava layout folder, use 'fe.script_dir'.

Instead of: playSound("/home/pi/.attract/layouts/lava/music.mp3", true);
Use: playSound(fe.script_dir + "music.mp3", true);

If the object you want to use is outside of the lava layout folder, use 'FeConfigDirectory'
Example: local sound_name = FeConfigDirectory+"sounds/GS"+random_num+".mp3";
This will play sounds from a folder named 'sounds' which is in the main AM folder ('D:\Arcade\Attract\sounds' in my case).

I am interested in your shader work... investigating.... ;)

P.S.
kudos for using a Top-Gun track for the music background. My all time favorite movie!

Even within playform, those paths would not work on my pi. Keep in mind not everyone uses retropie.

Theme is looking good. I like how this is turning inti a similar but different layout. Text list needs to be more visible.
