Help with layout
« on: June 27, 2017, 03:41:28 am »
Hi all, I am using Mala for this but tried a few other front end's but need some help in recreating a FE which behaves the way the Play-Choice 10 menu works.

Is this possible in Mala? Or has anyone any other recommendations that could help.

The game selection highlights the game in white (which mala can do), the issues I have are:
  • the game also shows how many players.
  • The game selected moves p and down (in mala your selected game is the middle, the text moves not the highlighted game, fixing this would also eliminate the above issue).
  • An icon to move along with the game selection

I havent seen any mala layouts with any of this :( so not sure it is possible, but is there any other front ends that maybe could work with this?

    the game also shows how many players.
MAME Config - Pictures and Videos - Extra Layout Pictures - Definable - Players
    The game selected moves up and down
Have not seen this work
    An icon to move along with the game selection
Same as Players above except use Default (Rom) and create your icons
