King of Air Theme for Vertical Screen
« on: January 24, 2021, 11:15:12 AM »
Hi,

I want to create a simple theme only for
vertical screens with a 640x480 background:

* Attract mode directly displays the theme, no menu and submenu.
* Display video previews or game snaps.
* The selection of games by scroll and quick choice by page with beep.
* Adding favorites (display a star in front of the game for example)

if anyone can help me make this script

Thanks

* my preview background theme

I've attached a layout that's pretty close to what you want.

To show videos as well as snaps... that's something you set in the emulator setup in AM.
Jumping from page to page is also an AM controls setting.

For the favorites, there's no (simple) way that I know of to add an image to the listbox, so I added a bullet character, and a star image will overlay on the right of the layout on every favorite

I put a setting in the layout options to control the rotation, by default it's rotated in the direction you have shown in your image. This layout will work on both horizontal and vertical monitors though, but on horizontal, it'll just show black on the right and left hand side.

Going from game to game has a soft click sound rather than a beep. You can replace the mp3 in the layout with whatever sound you want though.

Anyway... usually I might just give some pointers on making a layout yourself, but I was curious as to how fast I could make this layout using my new positioning module. http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=3880.0

Update: I made a few tweaks. I've cleaned up the provided graphic and added scrolling history content  to the right hand side where the credits image was.

Update 2: I added the Air Attack look as well as options to use CRT Glow, CRT Shaders (image rounding) and Scanlines.

Thanks to Yaron for the shader code. Here's a link to the Github Repository https://github.com/mahuti/King-of-Air

The included PNG is about as High-res as I could do... whatever I could find on the web which isn't much. I don't have a higher-resolution image, or this would  look a lot cleaner. As it is, I compiled a few versions together to make it look better than the original screenshot, but it's still not great.

If you find a higher-res image let me know and i can try to adjust the background some more.

I don't know the first thing about dumping a rom from a Pandora's Box. Sorry. I'll take a look at the other graphic. Won't take long to move things around to fit with that style as well.

I added the other background you posted as an option. I also added scanlines and crt shaders for rounding of the snap videos. My first post has been updated with the latest zip. I don't know if the "R" in the bottom right of the new background pic is supposed to be for the current  alpha letter or what... I just left it in as a design element.

Okay, for those who want to enjoy or hack if it's not encrypted, the background and the rest should
be extracted into the 1.img root, under linux.

Thanks

I believe that is an AM configuration... you have to edit the exit script. I don't use that myself so I can't tell you more than that.
