Hi guys,

Any recommendations for a cool theme that will display CP art in the layout?
Thanks,
Leo

No, I'm talking about control panels from arcade games. It says on the how to post it is capable but I don't know any layouts that support it, and I don't know how to edit one to make it support it.

example: the concept is just
using like snaps, marquee, fanart, ext....


in your emulators-mame.cfg
add:

artwork    CP         $HOME/mame/CP


put all you CP artwork in your "$HOME/mame/CP" folder
and name each cp image to a rom name.


then call it in your theme

local cp = fe.add_image( "CP", 100, 100, 200, 100 );
help a friend....
