Any BigBox themes for Arcade cocktail table available?

Recommended Posts

I am currently building a cocktail table running Mame. The idea is to have the players sitting on opposite sides of the table with the monitor being vertical towards the players. I guess this is a rather common setup for a cocktail setup. Mame supports this natively with the "cocktail-mode".

I do not seem to be able to find any BigBox-Theme that would allow to use a "cocktail-mode". Ideally mirroring the screen so that both players can see it easily. On my stand-up arcade cabinet I run the "Retrofresh-Glass-Detailed"-theme and I love it. If there was any chance to use this in cocktail-mode it would be great, but I guess it wont work if it is not prepared for it.

If anyone could point me to a working solution - that would be great.

I don't know of any released cocktail mode themes. I believe it should be possible via WPF/XAML though. Essentially you would create the theme on the bottom half of the screen then use a visual brush to draw that same theme on the top half but with it's render transform rotated 180 degrees.
