Let me know if this works or if it is too dark and I need to make it lighter. I like what we have been using so far.

If we can fit 4 across and 3 down? If its too tight then 4x2 only

Put a white or grey square border around each game title with the marquee sticking a bit outside the box. Definitely shrink it down to what you currently have for it to have a horizontal look then the vertical look you have now. The square border.

If you can add a glow or different color to the square that is currently selected. Plus make the marquee color show. All the other unselected marquee to be black n white no color. Until they are selected.

Transition looks to be operating well there

Is it possible to make the selecting square more horizontal shape than vertical. Make it wider like the marquees and not so high.

Also to put the blue square around all of the marquees. Ok for the marquee to go a bit outside the square.

Then the square that is highlighting the currently selected marquee to have a yellow glow.

Also for all the marquees that are not selected to be in black and white. Only the one that is selected to be in full color and have the yellow glow. The ones that are not selected to have the blue square border and be black and white no color.

Arcade1up has released some cool Legacy cabinets which hold 12 games on each.

The rotating wheel theme was pretty cool on here but I think having all 12 games on one screen is better. Sometimes the wheel people don't realize or forget whats on there. Having the 12 in your face without having to move is great. No videos or other graphics just the regular marquee images. If anyone can help with this.

Looking for a horizontal and a vertical image. The horizontal would be 4 games across and 3 down. Vertical displays 3 across and 4 down.

Keep the arcade1up logo on top. Don't really need the legacy edition wording below. on the sides can just use retropie or something so it generic for all types.

On the bottom keep the game selection with the arrows and the press player 1 icon to select game. Get rid of all the other text.

For the background maybe some kind of generic blue or something.

Some images to help

Themes / Theme Layout Help
« on: September 07, 2020, 09:09:11 PM »
There are some nice themes on here. I really like the robospin style. The nevato or like the coin ups style. Where it has the wheel with the cabinet image and the video snap appearing on the screen.

I had an idea to make a cool theme if anyone with time or want to work on a new project. I'm not good in creating one but maybe someone on here interested in helping out.

This would be an Arcade1up Theme style
just using arcade roms

On the cabinet style either having the front face image like this

Or the 3D slanted angle which shows the cab as well like this

I'm more of a fan of the second one. Almost like robospin format.

Make the marquee to change with the video snap.

Maybe even have an option to change the cabinet or just renaming a photo and you can switch it to a different cab like this. Or make separate layout for each.

They even release some party cades. A whole layout with just party cades would be hot too.

There is also a default one here

The arrow selector for the wheel where u select the rom use a small image of this

The background can either be all black or using the brick

Make a layout that works horizontally and one for the vertical cabs.

Just a follow up on a small issue. When the menu first loads, there’s no game logo just blank rectangles. Once I move the joystick to scroll all the game images load.

Also the sound files not working

Disregard I see the issue. Script is set to #return to index 0 set to pacman
Im using puckman rom so it probably can't find it  ;D

I wanted to combine something with the A1U original layout on here since I do like the brick layout
Mix that in with the pacman 40th style
And some of the 60-1 theme

This is what I got

It was all done manually. If I can get coding done to display snaps in the squares and marquee/wheel overlap the image

I couldn't get the white border where the next and previous square to stay inside the lines so I got rid of the border. Maybe can be fixed?

Also the bottom game selection maybe a touch up

This would be great!

I never realized AM had the exit key when u go into emulator.
I also saw a pause option there. I think a reset game would of been better though.

But the exit emulator is great. Much better than using hotkey and exit as that sometimes don't work. Plus when ur in loading screen or on game launching image u are able to exit out as well. Plus able to use button combo from 2 different usb ports. Something that you can't do with hotkeys alone.

I just wish someone can code something for the exit emulator feature to have a delay press to activate. This way I can map player 1 as my start button but also as my exit if you press and hold it.

I've seen the pacman one but I think a more generic one would be better so it could be used for any cab.
That one only works for the pacman cab.

Plus I like the screenshot addition better. The pacman has a blank background with just the wheel/marquee. Its not much different than the original one you have created on here which I think is better.

Would be cool if u could make screenshot/snaps on the big square. Then add marquee/wheel to appear over the image like the pacman has.
Then just remove the marvel capcom logo on the top right.
On the bottom just leave Press A to Select Game

Or I was thinking

How bout we combine both?

Take the brick layout in this image that was created

Put the wide arcadequp logo on the top inside the border

then in middle the big square in middle
code it where the rom = screenshot inside the square plus wheel/marquee overlapping it in centered similar to the pacman

then the previous and next on the left and right of it. Cut off just displaying half of it

Then on the very bottom the game selection image like on the pacman

put in....

fe.layout.base_rotation = RotateScreen.Right;

Love the Arcade1up Theme u did. Still using it on all my cabinets.

Would you be interested in creating version 2. They have a new looking theme now on the newer cabs.

It displays one game. Using game screenshot. With the next and previous game on the right and left but are blurred out. Plus the navigation is from left to right instead of up down.

Arcade1up logo top left
Top right remove capcom and switch to retropie or attractmode logo
background is like a blueish color

on the bottom game selection with arrows pointing left right
below it press A to select game

Thing is I’m using it on an arcade cab where there is kids or friends that come over Will button smash. The hard press prevents exit being used

It works fine in emulationstation

I’m not good with coding. If someone can fix script and get it to work

I found this guys coding on reddit.

What he does is provide a killswitch. By holding a button down for 5 seconds it will exit you out of any emulator back to the menu screen. Without using hotkey or a button combination.

I've used the code and it works but for some reason when trying to do this after launching a rom in attract mode it will not work. Only works in emulationstation.

Best I could do if it helps

Don't worry about the page numbers on bottom. You can just make it say page without the numbers

I'm just worried if it will fit. Like when u put cursor on marquee game if it will overlap too much the A1U logo on left. If you have to make marquee game selection smaller do it. Or maybe fit 4 on one page instead of 3?

Hey we had a guy in the community that was able to take the actual image files off the pcb of the arcade1up machine LOL

Is there a way maybe we can update this?
I like the original brick background

I know the atari logo is there. Not sure if possible to remove if not just leave it there
