ZX Spectrum Theme

As the ZX Spectrum is a pain to scrape metadata for, I have taken inspiration from @edmaul69's WIP theme "Game Related" and created a theme for the ZX Spectrum that resembles the inital screen of the 128k machine.
You can download the theme here.
The theme is designed to be used with any base theme so only includes artwork used to create the Spectrum initial screen as well as a freeware Spectrum font. The theme should work in simple and detailed view and there should be sufficient room at the bottom if you have the on-screen help set to
I suggest copying your theme to the
/home/pi/.emulationstation/themes, whichever folder is convenient. Keep a copy of any artwork you wish to use from the
zxspectrum\artfolder and then replace the
zxspectrumfolder with the downloaded version.
You can add any base theme in the
theme.xmland add a system view in the
<view name="system">section. You may need to add any artwork to the
zxspectrum/art/folder for this to take effect.
I'm not particularly happy with the rainbow image on the title bar. I have had to resort to using a png file. I tried to create a svg but my Inkscape abilities are pretty limited. You can see the result in the art folder. Alternatively, you can comment out the png rainbow image lines in
theme.xmland uncommenting the svg rainbow image if you wish to see it in ES . If anybody could create a better svg, then that would be much appreciated.
Any issues, then let me know.
