Hi there!

Now it's available for everybody :D

It may scale down fine for you, however. 1024x768 is a 4:9 resolution. Give it a try. If it doesn't work you can always revert back to the original theme you were using.

It looks ace apart from the mesh/filter over the videos, its flickering like crazy!!

You think you could do a version without this feature, oh & the text on the left in English please.

Loving it tho :D

Grats man glad you got it all sorted out! :)

I believe helpman included his .PSD files so you could load it into an image editor - say GIMP for example, make the scanline layer invisible and save over the top of the relevant overlay/foreground ;) Do that a few times and you'll have your own version with no scanlines :)

I don't have photoshop on my pc so can't amend it or I would :-(

GIMP (Google it!) is an open source, FREE graphics editing program that has many features similar to Photoshop (upgradeable via various user created plugins) and it will render from .psd (Photoshop) and save to many of the same formats. Give it a try!

The scanlines are on a layer you can easily turn off on any picture editor supporting PSD files.

also the text on the left is inside a group so you can change it or delete it. (after all, I made that to suit my cabinet, where I had to press a button then use the joystick for volume or paging.

Even the text for the favourites or last games is editable warp text. (it's in spanish on my theme). You can just type anything there too :D

I just opened my own psd and saved a couple pictures for you.

https://www.dropbox.com/s/zra5p7xw843shru/MEDIA640.zip

Grab that file and unzip it inside my theme's folder. It'll overwrite some pictures on the MEDIA folder.

I just saved the front pictures, with 640x480 resolution. I also removed the controls text, changed the titles of favourites, most played, last played logos to english, and... adjusted the scanlines effect so it won't look so weird on that resolution.

Please test it :D

just grab my zipped file and try :D I provided a link to the pictures without text on the left, text titles of some screens in english and scanlines fixed to look better in 640x480 (actually those pictures are 640x480 to make sure they won't be scaled down and create a flickering effect) :D

The scanlines are 3:1 if anybody's curious. I think it creates the best look :D

Attached one of the screens for you to check out :D The zipped file is on my previous post :D

I will test it out, thanks dude.

Also just to add you not only doing this for me, I am sure there are lots of arcade owners that would use this theme if looked OK, I am testing/checking it for you :D

Your work testing it will be appreciated :D

PS... you should try it at 1024x728 somewhere... The scanlines on the preview video are the feature I like the most :D

Looks fantastic now dude, could do with a different font size or one that is little more spaced out if I am being picky

I would suggest you to use the theme editor for that, as it's VEEEEEERY easy to change the font. Just go to the theme editor, open my theme and select any text field. You'll see options to change it for any font you have installed :D
