Thanks!  :)
Are you referring to xcf files pack I posted a link to? If so, no - these are the art files I used to create all of the themes in the collection.
The artwork for the main menu can be found on the emumovies and hyperspin websites. I took the wheel logos from hyperspin and the system videos from emumovies.

I am releasing 'The Great Themes Collection v5.1.1' which largely fixes the wheel pulse bug which is a result of AM's animation system getting out of sink.

Shortening the scale animation by 1 millisecond allows the wheel pulse animation to run properly for far longer without navigating the wheel. However, leaving it over night resulted in the alpha and scale animations getting out of sync. I think that this is an acceptable solution given that before, this animation bug occurred only minutes after the wheel was not navigated. The bug disappears when the wheel is navigated again.

Download links are in the original post:

Shortening the scale animation by 0.01 milliseconds allows the wheel pulse animation to run properly for at least 4 hours straight without navigating the wheel. However, leaving it over night resulted in the alpha and scale animations getting out of sync. I think that this is an acceptable solution given that before, this animation bug occurred only minutes after the wheel was not navigated. The bug disappears when the wheel is navigated again.

 
Very good Yaron2019! I'm already downloading.;)

Update: This attract-mode out of sync animation bug is worse than I initially thought as it is also random in nature. After testing multiple time reduction values for the scale animation, I came to the conclusion that the only value that seems to do a decent job is a 1 ms reduction. I have re-uploaded the collection to reflect this change. There will be no further updates on this issue.

The Game & Watch theme works only with specific systems by Nintendo. These systems are located in a folder called 'units' which is inside the theme folder itself.
It will not work with any other systems hence the result you posted. Cheers.

I have some games that are in the "units" folder but they don't come out.
The roms must have the same name as the image in the "units" folder?
Are the roms in the "units" folder?
And what videos do you use? The videos that I have have the casing of the machine:

Yes, the roms need to be the exact same name as in the units folder.
The roms are not contained in the theme because Attract Mode is not a roms download website.
I downloaded the videos from here: https://emumovies.com/files/file/3968-nintendo-game-watch-video-snaps-pack-sq/

Thanks,

You have put the game & watch that works with the mame, but I did not know that mame now emulates these consoles ...  :P

I only use the "game & watch" or clones that you can download from retroarch.

Couldn't you make a theme for these consoles?

You should try make it yourself, you have the code from my theme. I don't use retroarch for these handhelds.

Testing the Super Nintendo Entertainment System layout and found a problem. The game title for Astérix displays as Ast rix. Also Astérix & Obélix displays as Ast rix & Ob lix

Appears to be a problem with Handel Gothic Regular.ttf. I tried the Attrac-Man layout and the game title displays correctly.

I downloaded Handel Gothic BT.ttf from https://candyfonts.com/font/handel-gothic-bt.htm. Then updated layout.nut to use the new font. Now the game's title is displayed correctly.

Using Super Nintendo Entertainment System layout and found longer game titles are truncated. For example:

Donkey Kong Country 3 : Dixie Kong's Double Trouble!

This is displayed as:

Donkey Kong Country 3 : Dixie Kong's Double Troubl

I edited layout.nut:

   title_b = fe.add_text("[Title]", x_title_b, fly*0.92, flw*0.4, flh*0.1);
   title = fe.add_text("[Title]", x_title, fly*0.92, flw*0.4, flh*0.1);


Changed flw*0.4 to flw*0.5:

   title_b = fe.add_text("[Title]", x_title_b, fly*0.92, flw*0.5, flh*0.1);
   title = fe.add_text("[Title]", x_title, fly*0.92, flw*0.5, flh*0.1);


Now the full title is displayed. Is this the correct approach? Any concerns with this change?

Yes, this is the correct approach. Thank you for alerting me on this. I thought I fixed all the themes that had this issue but apparently missed this one and the Hyperspin Theme Mode one.
I am collecting small fixes for a 5.1.2 update release. If you see anything else please notify me. Thanks!  :)
