Vertical Aspirations - A vertically oriented cabinet theme

Recommended Posts

@pahleto OK, so I've been messing around a bit with this. When you say Star Rating, do you mean community rating or user rating? I have to admit that I don't really use any of that stuff, but I can see how some folks would like to have it. I've come up with something that maintains the minimalist look of the theme and includes your requests (with community rating). I can let you try it out and see if it works for you. I've basically put those text fields on the bottom of the screen. When you land on a game in the wheel, the text pops up for a few seconds then disappears. If you think its useful, I might go ahead and update all the views and include it in a future release once version 1.0.9.0 of the Theme Creator is released and I have time to go over everything.

I'll send you a private message with the theme files for you to try.

Do you think it would be possible for you to add the marquee show feature to other views other than arcade when displaying the games clear logo? i loaded pinball fx3 and only have clear logos that ive found and it doesnt look good for me when its on the top and bottom...you theme is cool but i was trying to get a look sorta like arcade vs pinball if possible. thank you sir

Are you using the full-screen pinball playfield view for pinball, or are you use the default games view? The image below is the intended pinball view. Is this where you'd like to see the marquee/backbox image? I could possibly set it up to use a marquee on the top with a fallback to use a clear logo if no marquee is found.

How is this? This is using alternate clear logos I found somewhere that I placed in the \Launchbox\Images\Pinball FX3\Arcade - Marquee folder. Pinball doesn't really have marquees unless you consider the backbox to be the marquee. These look like the ones the CoinOps guys are using on their Arcade vs Pinball builds, so I assume these are what you were talking about. If you like it, I'll put out an updated release tomorrow evening.

1st of all thank you for taking the time to consider making some changes  for my request I'm very thankful! And yes that would be nice  to have ..can you also give the option for the 4x3 one (pic included) to have the marquee instead of the clear logo to? Thank you once again!16106966387784392254721465812432.thumb.jpg.d7a43639fb949f3357d7c78fb8f4cef0.jpg

One other thing if you would consider (like pic below) have additional lay file type category where the place your video is placed is a 16x9 (sort of) area instead of the 4x3 area(like video shown on pic)  ....video would be able to display in the entire 16x9 (sort of) area.16106979360045513851030003486275.thumb.jpg.cea2c45629e3aa4d04a553b37310d47b.jpg

I have considered adding a vertical bezel on some views but I haven't figured out the best way to go about it yet. I'll try to come up with something to put out in the next release, hopefully tonight or some time this weekend. Honestly though, I was going to do this to accommodate vertical Mame games. Pinball tables don't use a screen or a bezel in real life so building this out for pinball tables never occurred to me. No reason you can't use that view for pinball however once the view is built into the theme. It will support Marquees as well.
