MorArcade: New Maximus Arcade Skin/Theme
« on: January 19, 2012, 07:23:21 pm »
Hi to everybody!

After several days searching for 'material' (images, icons, pics, etc) and many hours of processing/composing/resizing/realocating (through Gimp and Theme Editor), I have created a new Maximus Arcade Skin/Theme. :)

I have named it MorArcade (the name of my arcade cabinet and which is related to me :D).

It is a mixture which uses Maximus Arcadius as base and takes some elements from other famous skins such as: Ultra Arcade (by DeLuSioNaL29), Maximus Powers (by Trennel), Maximus Serjimbus (by Serjimbus) and Weecade (by S. Sorensen). Thanks to the authors! ;)

The background has been defined with an image by Graphicgirl, and some of the images are by guybird99. Thanks to both of them too. ;)

It also has some images from internet, but I have tried to respect the copyrights and I do not have any profit of them, as you can see.

I have tried to improve the images of all the arcade emulators, pinballs and some of the consoles, which I have set using the European version (SNES and Master System, for instance).
The Marquee has been changed for most of the systems and the fonts have been redefined looking for a cooler appearence (at least for me). :D
The cabinet has been moved to be better seen.

It is optimised for resolution 640x480, but it is also good at 800x600, 1024x768 and 1280x1024.

Here you are some images and the download link. I whish you like it. :)


















You can download it here: ->MorArcade<-

Cheers!

I really like this theme, but on my system there is a problem with the Zinc marquees. The generic marquee that says Zinc when there is not an image available works, but when there is an image, the generic marquee masks it only allowing me to see the image within the Zinc lettering. Anyone else having that problem? Looks like that same happens in Daphne.

Hi ehauk!

Thanks for your words about the theme. :)

Yes, you are right.

The problem you comment happens due to the type of image I have used, png files with transparent background.
I will fix it, but I have no time at the moment (maybe in a few days)...

If you want to try it, a fast solution could be convert them to jpg images and change the references in the Theme Editor (it is very easy, don't worry). :D

If you prefer changing it without using the Theme Editor, you just have to susbtitute the file 'ZINC_marquee.png' inside the zip file of the theme with the one you want. Maybe another one included in a theme you like (Maximus Powers, Ultra Arcade, and so on). ;)

By the way, Daphne case is the same (and almost all the systems)... :_(

Cheers!

Hi,
I'm trying to refresh this post as I found your skin incredible and I would like to know if you can post another mirror as RS is not available.
BTW, thanks for sharing your hard work!

Cheers
Max
