Hi guys/gals. I have been looking for a vertical theme that I can use in Big Box for my el cheapo arcade machine. I do not have the coding skills/talent to do this myself. I had intended using Big Box as my front end, but found the themes are all basically for Horizontal screens. I am currently using Attract Mode (please don't flame me) but would prefer Big Box, especially as there is now voice control. This is similar to what I am currently using:
It works well vertically, and all of the fonts adapt accordingly to the screen res. As a background, my arcade machine was built on a very tight (read almost non-existent) budget using and old quad core MB that is limited to 2Gb ram and a recycled AGP graphics card. The screen is a 24" LCD I saved from green waste as the logic board was dead. The speakers are down-firing models from a dead Plasma TV and the audio is provided by an old PC speaker system I gutted. The major cost here was the buttons and controller board.
