now includes various systems, brand logos and custom collections.
If you're interested in creating your own vector logos, this tutorial provides the basics.
Original logos, graphics and trademarks are property of their respective owners.

Sep 10, 2017 : Taitronics and Irem logos added.
You can actually find versions of these on some websites/forums, unfortunately none of those was exactly resembling the original logo. Decided to recreate them from scratch after checking original arcade flyers and Cabinets. While not surely perfect the Taito Taitronics logo is very detailed and matches the original (as usual the problem is unavailability of high res source images).
Aug 27, 2017 : Cave logo added (by request)

@UDb23 Are you practising mind reading too? This is exactly what I want! :-)
How Is it possible to add the missing "arcade" image to my eudora theme?
@Brigane I've never used the Eudora theme so far but I just checked the source on Github. You can create the 'arcade' system copying and modifying Eudora's Mame theme xml, creating the 'Arcade' folder and editing es_systems accordigly.
Basically in the same way you create specific Mame systems as explained in the readme.txt provided with my svg custom logo pack. Please note that, according to Github, system logo Image in Eudora must be named 'logo.svg' instead of 'system.svg' in Carbon.
@UDb23 Thanks, I can't seem to be allowed to make the arcade folder though. WinSCP has some permission issues.
@Brigane I use Putty under Windows to ssh into the Pi and have no issues with permission. Usually I creare folders with Midnight Commander; have you tried: "sudo mc" on the Pi?
@UDb23 Yes, I created the directory and have the files in /eudora/arcade folder, but how do I rename the svg. files? Is it possible with "sudo mc"?
This is my logo for Mega CD,I was sick of it saying Sega CD..;) can you make it into svg for me,I couldn't figure it out..?? if anyone wants to use it with ES they can..:)
Just right click and save as,its a png,It has a transparent background.
@spannernick1 Thanks, It's a awesome logo :D
@Brigane Yes with mc ( Midnight Commander) you Can easily copy, move, rename & delete files. Did you edit the es_systems file? You can do that also with mc. Just try it, interface is self explanatory.
@spannernick1 I can try to vectorize it and create a svg file. Can you provide a higher resolution original image of that logo ?
Please also note that ES does not support Shadows and gradients, so your logo in svg will look slightly different.
@UDb23 I haven't sorry but I could make one in photoshop,If the logo don't look as good then leave it,but thanks.Its looks ok in ES anyway as a png.
@spannernick1 Found it thru web search. Will create svg over the weekend and share. Then you can decide which one you like more ;-)
One thing I really like to do with retropie is breakup the arcade roms into Cps1 s2 then have a cave catorgory and possible a vertical category. Rather switch sytem that scroll a mish mash list since Neogeo has broken out of mames section.....Is that possible?
@twd there's a nice theme making tutorial on the wiki.
@UDb23 Thanks,I do have a copy of Mega CD 2 logo as well if anyone wants that to,I made it when I was using my Mega CD 2 with mega Drive case..?
Here it is anyway...:)
