Damn, that was fast... I've been trying to come up with something for Centipede for a while now, but couldn't get any good graphics for it.

well you guys let me know how it looks. There is a little bit of artifacting that you can see in the reds.

I cant try it just yet, but will soon, can you make your screenshots 640x480? For future reference. Havent checked for the uploads thumbnail but those should be about that size also, just so its easier for us to see the pic.

I think it scaled it down because it was too big. The one in the downloads section should be bigger.

Just a heads up to everyone who has downloaded this theme...I went back and fixed some compression issues so now it should look A LOT better. I also enlarged the video a little bit. Its currently waiting to be approved. Once it is, go grab it.

The reds look much cleaner now.

Honestly I think if you removed the title from the .swf and put it on it's own Artwork layer and made the video quite a bit bigger and rotated slightly and let the title animate over the video layer, but above the.swf would look really good.

Good idea. I will work on that tomorrow.

Okay...I revised the Centipede theme. Its much better. Still has the blinking eye but I added a set of centipede legs to the logo as it crawls in.

Hope you like it.

looks good. Anyone that has downloaded this previousy will need to delete the centipede.swf out of the Media/MAME/Images/Artwork1 folder.


Bill - I thought you were going to make HS ignore any images that did not have a line in the theme .xml. So this doesn't happen...

Alright what I fixed before wasnt this problem, it was if it didnt have a line item it would grab the default artwork, in this case its grabbing an actual existing file which was supposed to be normal behavior. This is going to take a little bit of work to fix, but for just for now I suggest removing any existing artwork when updating a theme.
