  1. *** Before I continue I must Acknowledge Krakerman's incredible GameRoomEX v2 as the inspiration and source for this theme. This theme is simply a port with my own artistic interpretation added. I take no credit for the original design and encourage you to check out his amazing work here. Please do not enter this theme into any competition, as it uses ideas, templates, and artwork from Krakerman's GameroomEX v2. *** Introduction: A few years back I decided to incorporate a vertical/portrait mounted monitor in an arcade cabinet build.This is a great way to view vertically scrolling shooters like 1941, while maintaining the real estate for 4:3 aspect games. It also works well as a pinballX/hyperpin setup. Unfortunately that left me with few options as far as themes were concerned. No longer!!! If you are interested in making a vertical setup there are a few things to consider first. I have included the following links to topics/problems I have run into. I present to you GameRoomEX v2 (Vertscreen): This theme features System specific themes for the following systems (see attached thumbnails for a sample). Installation Instructions: Download the theme here [1080x1920 or 768x1366] and extract it. Place the folder named "GameroomEX 2.0 ([version], Vertscreen)" into the "THEMES" folder within the GameEX folder. So you should have something like this: "C:\GameEx\THEMES\GameroomEX 2.0 (1080x1920, Vertscreen)". In the GameEX Setup Wizard, select the theme. Still in the GameEX setup wizard navigate to the "Emulator Setup" page and change the "Title Snap Path" to point at your emumovies Boxart folder (not 3d boxart) for the following systems: Still in the GameEX setup wizard navigate to the "MAME Settings" page and change the "Marquee Path" to point at your Flyers Folder. Set your OS to rotate your screen appropriately and display at the same resolution as the theme you downloaded. That's it, your ready to start GameEX and enjoy! Please Note: To get the best experience out of this theme you will want emumovies boxart, titles, and video previews for your games. The layout of this theme is specificly designed to fit their artwork's aspect ratio. Other artwork sources will work, but may not fit exactly as intended. You don't need a membership to download these, however the membership makes it MUCH EASIER AND FASTER. You may need to rename your emulator's "start page name" to match the config in the theme's main folder. Otherwise, the theme will display the default background. This theme is available in two sizes, 1080x1920 and 768x1366. Please use the one that matches your screen resolution as closely as possable. If you can, It would be best to match your Operating System's Resolution to the theme's resolution. This will prevent crashes due to GameEX re-sizing images as you navigate the menus.
