anyone get mamewah themes working?
« on: February 15, 2021, 07:00:16 AM »
I see there is a mamewah.nut file in /usr/local/share/attract/loader but not sure how to use it. I have a layout.lay file from a mamewah theme (along with the corresponding jpg files for main, message, & options). When I select that theme from the list all I get is a while screen.

Any ideas?

Just to follow up here. I didn't get my existing mamewah theme to inport and be usable but I was able to build a layout.nut file using my theme. I have a very simple theme so I created a layout.nut that includes the background image from the mamewah file and then dropped in the snapshot, list, and artwork images and got the same result as I was hoping for.

Good to hear. I went through the same process a handful of years ago. So how did your theme turn out?

Here is a screenshot of the theme. It's not much but I built this since the games I am playing are the classic 80's stuff thus the inclusion of some of the classic arcade characters from that time period.
