GAMERS SYSTEM dosen't only retro video game frontend. It is multiple retro entertainment systems inluding JukeBox, eCarddass and FrontEnd. All items is my favourite in young age.  It brought back many of pleasant memories. So, I would like to share it to all.

The download package dosen't contain any Music Videos, Roms, Cards, Background Music & HD artworks. You need to collect its by yourself.

Hope you enjoy the system and give me advise. Thanks  :)

The latest update may be solved pulsing issue, or you may try to change Transition Time to 120 or smaller in menu layout options.  Welcome to share your idea or solution :)

I like this theme a lot, very nice usage of effects in both the system selections screen as well as the game select screen. I've downloaded the (latest?) layout from your dropbox in the OP. There are a couple of things I would really like to know how you have achieved it:

1) the black text outline on the gametitles. I have similar functionality in the theme I'm working on but it is based on a shader. I dont see any shaders in your code, how did you create the effect?

2) the pulsing outline on the game titlles. I'm guessing it uses the same technique as the outline code but adds an animation somewhere?

 PS. are you on discord as well?

Yes, There is no any special skills, just be a trickly.

The magic is  :P

1. Great a new surface and then add game titlles in there
Code: [Select]
local surface_bgText = fe.add_surface( 1920, 1080 );

2. Add animation for game titlles surface
Code: [Select]
animation.add( PropertyAnimation(surface_bgText,   {when = Transition.StartLayout, property = "color", start = { red = 0, green = 0, blue = 255 }, end = { red = 3, green = 200, blue = 255 }, time = 300, delay = 100, pulse=true }));
