In regards to missing wheel art:

I created a script called mamesoftwareparser that can parse a mame software list and find missing artwork. It could probably be adapted to use an attractmode list and possibly execute a photoshop action to create a generic wheel art. It would be better than a question mark.

Where does it actually get the missing wheel-art from? The only place I know that you can easily pull it from is TheGamesDB.

It just prints a list of missing files not matching your xml file. It doesn't retrieve anything.

I've been having a issue with the wheel art, 75% of it works but some of it even if present in the folder shows up as a box with a ? in it

Please check out if the same problem is present with different theme that uses wheel art - like ROBOSPIN
This way we'll now if it's a NEVATO theme problem or your setup problem.

So it must be a problem with your images. Most likely the offending images are saved in PNG but in 8-bit format. AFIK for AM you should have 24-bit PNGs.

Just pick one image that is not displaying correctly, open it in a graphic program - like free PAINT.NET (not the MS standard paint) and resave it as PNG. If there is an option - choose 24-bit color. If not, then  24-bit should be default. It should help - if this is the problem.

No dice. I even ran the scrapper and it only has one working image despite downloading a entire folder of art. I even double checked names and that they were 24 bit.
Here is a screenshot of it

I have no clue what is the problem, but it's your system specific issue I'm affraid if this doesn't work for other themes.

Do your system names or romlist names have spaces in them? I found that AttractMode goes crazy when you do and lots of stuff randomly stops working.

Is there a way to have this theme output the game title in some type of text instead of the "?" box for missing art?

Lcd right option can display romname
Could be file(png 24 bit?) or title (space in name or encoding)
You should use test rom and video/pic name to prove which.
If using snaps parh, use pic;video so video taken first

Currently not. If you have wheel art graphics it will display it, but if not - it will display [  ?  ]  box.
In next revision - I'll add an option to use a text list for emulators that simply don't have wheel graphics available for download.

Loving this theme!

Using here with some customization in the background (my own fanart), every game with a different flyer, simulating a real arcade room.



example:
