At-The-Arcade Theme v1.4 [Release]
« on: August 03, 2019, 07:18:26 AM »
At-The-Arcade is a new theme that aims at creating an authentic experience of how Arcades where back in the 80's and 90's.
The layout is simple and clean but provides quite a few customization options through the layout menu. Some of it's nicer features are a shader that emulates the lighting effects of glowing CRTs - which is crucial for getting the right 'feel', an animated background of an arcade shop with authentic ambient sound and a cool LED board with a scrolling game title marquee at the top of the arcade cabinet.

Back in the day, being at the Arcade was a great experience and I hope I captured some of it with this theme!

Download At-The-Arcade from here:

Download the random wheel sounds from here and place its folder in your main Attract folder:

Configure-->Controls-->Layout Options = <your button or key>

This directly brings up the layout options. It came out about a year ago.

Thank you.
I was admiring your Arcadeflow_50 theme work the other day. That's some serious coding right there!

I picked up that glow shader when I co-developed Lava theme with Takoni and asahendrix, thought it would be great for a dark arcade shop...

Download the theme again, it should be fixed now. If not, please post a screenshot of what the theme looks like on your device.
BTW, what is your device? Windows, Linux, Pi?

very nice, i'm gonna check out your glow, i was trying to achieve that effect and i did something with bloom and a very small source image but it doesn't quite achieve what i wanted.

I don't have any arcade games here so i dunno if i'll ever end up using your theme but it's so nice i'll keep it around just in case

The "Show weel pointer" option is not working. I am using the current version of AM. I did a fresh install of AM and the problem persists.

I am attaching a new version of the layout.nut file. I think I know what the problem is. Please replace the current layout.nut file within the 'At-The-Arcade' theme folder with this one. Then disable and renable the "Show wheel pointer" option and tell me if it works. Thanks!

EDIT: this fix is now included in the official download in the first post of this thread.

Thank you for the theme, it's awesome!

Could you please tell me the fix for the issue, where the video is not showing at the arcade machine but rather is on the front and fuzzy.
