@lordmonkus

romname, really? - it is shown on a marquee and on a wheel.
I'm using only mame - so maybe it is important for other emulators? that doesn't have a wheel graphics?

Sorry, I meant rom filename. Like you said for debugging (adding missing art or any other reason needed).

I've configured another emulator (snes) - just to check if the theme is working with other emulators.

Not so well...

1.
SNES flyers are horizontal, but my background scaling was calculated for portrait flyers (like mame)  - so the background art is not covering the whole background - I have to rewrite this

2.
SNES spinwheel is not usable - almost half of the roms don't have scrapped wheel graphics = with this kind of theme design you don't know whats the name of the game :(

For your 2nd question, I advise if arcade game using wheel images, else using text list  :)  ?

I'm planning to add text-only game list as an alternative to spinwheel - but if you want to have spinwheel for mame and romlist for other emu - you have to have multiple copies of the theme, because theme options are set per theme, not per display - unfortunately.

This looks incredible!

My monitor is  a 32" tv mounted vertically so resolution  is 768 x 1322. I've started my own theme, buy every time I look at this thread I'm both inspired and crushed. I'll post what I have in a few days.

Meanwhile I hope this is released soon so I can expand my knowledge base and modify for portrait mode.

Just wanted to let you know that I'm swamped with work right now (a few websites and couple of company logos to design), but I didn't abandon the theme.

Bad news is that I'll have to rewrite the theme using surfaces (at least the cab part) if I want to support more aspects that 16:9 and 16:10, but the good news is that it will be easier for me to make 4:3 and maybe even vertical one - but don't hold your breath waiting :)

I'm re-starting tomorrow.
I've just scheduled that theme like any other projects - because otherwise it will be always pushed at the end of the line by payed gigs.

---

BTW - I'm thinking about changing the theme name for something less obvoius than "modern cab"

I've came up with the name NEVATO.
That doesn't mean anything (at least in english AFAIK) - but sounds good to me.

What do you think?

If you change the E for an O = NOVATO which means rookie/newbie in portuguese :D

Maybe it will be a good fit :)

I'm seasoned designer, but a real rookie when it comes to coding.
