Arcade1Up Layout?
« on: Yesterday at 10:53:31 AM »

I've been using emulationstation for my images but have ran into a roadblock where I need to use attract mode instead.
I'm modding a cab that only has a trackball and I do not want to add in a joystick. Attract Mode does a great job in allowing me to navigate the menus with the trackball as emulationstation does not.

I've been using Hursty A1U theme up to this point

I've installed attract mode and went with the Grid layout theme. Which is pretty good for the most part. I set it to 1 column with 5 rows and it looks like this.

Everything functions as should. I'm able to navigate the wheel and input the wheel art work. I like the simple look but its just too plain.
Unfortunately I don't see an option to add it a background. Does anyone know if its possible to add in a background instead of the all black background? I would like to use this background

I want something to resemble to stock Arcade1up image as much as possible. Hursty has done a great job for emulationstation theme.

If anyone know if possible to add this to the default grid layout or if anyone out there can create this layout for me? Preferably to use for both vertical and horizontal or create 2 separate for each.

Here is how the original Arcade1up looks like

Some photo files if you need them

Thank You
Much appreciate fam

ps, this was just a quick mod from another theme...    took mabey  30min or so..

give me a day or two and we can dial it in for ya....

as for the favorites,  that is what the filter's are for in AM,    under controls, "next filter" ,"previous filter", " add to favorites" ...buttons

It looks real good

If the glow gives u problems I’d say just get rid of it and just a simple highlight would work.
