@h2805270 Really clever idea, looks a lot like Teletext, and clean layout too. My only reservation is that I'm not sure I'd want to spend too long looking a Teletext screen, as they're not the easiest on the eye. I was never a big user back in its heyday though, and others may well have a greater fondness and nostalgia for it.
@Bluebotlabs I know what your original post was asking. If you want mouse support right NOW, you can use the pegasus frontend as an alternative. It uses emulationstation's scraped art/gamelist info except for logos/marquees.
I opted to skip on the Achievements for right now and am in the process of making this now. As all themes I've ever made, I'll give people the files and info if they care to make it a theme, but I manually create all my gamelist files and make all my own screen shots/start screens/sprite files, so unless you're going to take the time to do that, theme won't look good.
Here's a looping GIF of what it looks like so far. I've only grabbed 1/2 my SNES sprites so far and am using start screens for the screen shot until I get it fully set up and then I'll replace them with actual screen shots.
I think it came out pretty nicely, I may look into the Pegasus avenue, and need to really buckle down and improve any coding knowledge before I can even come close to my end goal.
Things that I plan on fixing is the GAME INFO box, and the Title Box. I'll have them expand to the size of the text inside, but I don't believe there is a way to pad the edges, so I don't know how I'll like the look.
I believe I found what I was looking for. Have to do a few more tests. It was something called "PDF to Image" that just one dude made and he offers it for free, and it's portable so you don't have to even install it.
I was able to take a 26MB PDF of a magazine and turn it into over 2GB of PDF files using 600DPI. Way overkill and not what I'm looking for. lol
I'll have to try out the 300DPI and 72DPI settings and see what happens.
