Attract mode background/wallpaper?
« on: July 15, 2019, 05:18:53 PM »
Hey, all. I've got the orbit theme setup for my systems menu. I like it. It looks lovely, but that blank background just feels a little empty. Anyone know of a wallpaper or background image or something I can throw behind it that says "attract mode"?

I guess that image will work, I was hoping somebody had cooked up something a bit nicer.
