I REALLY like this skin, but have one question that I don't believe I have seen answered: Is there any way to remove the bouncing "Attract Mode" logo from the top left corner - it "bounces" every time I scroll to a new game and would like to remove it if possible.

Thanks for all the hard work kent79 :)

Yes, I like this theme too...I want it to display the history.dat information in the top border using the method from ArcadeBliss...shouldn't be difficult to cut and paste the code...

IMO, that would make things too clustered. But, to each is own... I guess.  I think we should all strive for lean layouts, so as not to distract the user and hinder the presentation. That's probably why I still prefer using the history overlay, use it as you need it kind of thing.

Trust me, I know a thing or two about making themes that are too distractive like my cockpit theme. ;D But we evolve, learn and hopefully get better with our creativity. Stepping off the soap box, now...

Hello and thanks for this!

Is there any way to keep aspect ratio in the right spin? I use wheel images and they scale to fill the whole frame, looking distorted.

Finally got a chance to dig in. Love it. Able to really tweak it and looks amazing on an arcade CRT. Only 1 issue....

It seems to not always bring back to focus after exiting a game. Was able to consistently have it work properly on spin and reflect. Back to this - sometimes it will not load the theme in focus again. Any ideas? I can provide a video if need be.

Thanks for your hard work on these layouts.

Surprised there is no info on this. I changed the exit button so it doesn't match mame. Tried with d3d9ex as well as d3d (old big) - same. Happens in all window modes. Set hide console to on. Same thing.

Has to be something in the layout.

I did! That was the other thing lol. But it's odd - it is only this theme that does it and of course it's the one I prefer right now.

Hello all!

Nub here. I really enjoyed this display!

I have a few questions: How do I add game logos on the top left and genre icons on the bottom right?

Thanks!

EDIT: Nevermind, oversight on my part.  The emulator case "MAME" wasn't reading correctly, I had to change it to "mame"  I guess the strings are case sensitive.  Fixed now!

Hey so i'm trying to use "expert mode" and adding my own emulator under the switch statement.

This is the code block:

        case Transition.ToNewList:
            switch ( fe.list.name )
            {             
      case "MAME":
                OBJECTS.logo.file_name = "";
      lt.set_bg_rgb( 155, 0, 40 );
      lb.set_bg_rgb( 155, 0, 40 );
      OBJECTS.gameListBox.set_selbg_rgb( 155, 0, 40 );
      OBJECTS.gameListList2.set_rgb( 155, 0, 40 );
                break;
      case "NES":
                OBJECTS.logo.file_name = "nes.png";
      lt.set_bg_rgb( 0, 150, 136 );
      lb.set_bg_rgb( 0, 150, 136 );
      OBJECTS.gameListBox.set_selbg_rgb( 0, 150, 136 );
      OBJECTS.gameListList2.set_rgb( 0, 150, 136 );
                break;
      case "retro snes":
                      OBJECTS.logo.file_name = "";
      lt.set_bg_rgb( 91, 56, 150 );
      lb.set_bg_rgb( 91, 56, 150 );
      OBJECTS.gameListBox.set_selbg_rgb( 91, 56, 150 );
      OBJECTS.gameListList2.set_rgb( 91, 56, 150 );
            break;   
         }


However when I load the emulator the color value isn't correct.  Once I switch to a different emulator it'll grab the correct color but that color is then used for every emulator.  Help!

Thanks

- Display some sort of transparent Platform art in the upper right hand corner, next to the video scroll area, above the Flyer section.
-> I would like layout is clean up, so will not add image on right hand corner. You can set Platform logo on left hand corner manually like as  my snes screen shot. Make sure select Expert mode in option.








I'm using the Game Station in an arcade cabinet with CRT monitor.

Is it normal for list option in spin mode to transition like this?

I set the transition speed high to show how it behaves. If it's not supposed to be like this how to fix it to scroll nicely?
