Very first post, probably in the wrong section

Recommended Posts

Wondering if there is an add on or a feature or anything like that that is similar to be what used to be Johnny 5 or cpwizard? Basically a way to quickly make images of what buttons are used for each individual game and what each button does and then in theory making it one of the pictures on the select screen so when you go to select your game you know what button does what? And ideally you could like import your own mame cabinet image so people could easily see that the 3rd button over is actually L and in this game L is jump or something along those lines...? Thoughts?

No.  Outside of Arcade (MAME), I think you're pretty much on your own.  I know there's a Theme (or 2?) out there that have added generic controller [image] information for at least a Pause Theme (possibly Startup also?).

I used CPWizard to create the layouts for all the Arcade games.  And for the other systems made generic images [PhotoShop] that correspond to my cab.  From there, I customized the respective Themes to show them.

Super bummer but good to know. Thank you. I'll do my best to look around for those themes. And then I guess I'll get to crackin on making my own custom stuff.

Sorry if this is something of a necro, but images in the Arcade Conrols image section can be added to any game locally and I don't even see why they wouldn't be desired if uploaded to the general database for games. I would certainly appreciate them.
