BigCade - arcade oriented theme
« on: November 16, 2019, 02:27:28 PM »
Here’s a simple theme for arcade related displays.

Its setup to use MAME marquees.  It’ll display a default MAME system marquee (matching the DisplayName) if a game specific one doesn’t exist.  It includes around 35 or so MAME system marquees.  There is a layout option to toggle game marquees on/off.

There are four color choices for the cabinet image (blue, red, green, and yellow).

The download link is located here:

Here is a short video demo of it in action.

MAME marquees

Here’s a download link for optimized MAME marquees (flyers are also included in the download).

Place them into the appropriate folder and make sure to have your Attract Mode's emulator config file setup with the correct path for "marquee".

Point of view is like some one crouching down at the control panel. Perhaps a more standard POV would make a better experience.

Hmm....I've never looked at it from that perspective, but now that you said it, I definitely see that now.

I found the cabinet image along time ago, and always thought it'd make an interesting looking theme.  I finally got around to making one with it.

It's simple for sure .. but could always use improvements.  I'll keep it on my to-do list and keep playing with it some more, add a different cabinet image to get a better perspective, etc.
