firewater and makaveeti, I'm glad you like it.

As nice as the theme is, could you make a "dark" or "lights out" version of the theme?
I'll think about it, although first I want to improve some things.

Seeing the following error in the logs. What does it mean? When you select a game, the info for the game is not shown.

[2018-12-12 18:56:07] [INFO] [Menu] File does not exist: "C:\Users\Imran\Aura1b2Test\collections\garou mark of the wolves\menu.txt"

That's not an error message; that's an info message letting you know the garou mark of wolves collection does not have a menu.txt, which is to be expected. Only collections that point to other collections (rather than games) have a menu.txt.

@iGarikoitz - In the latest theme download. You named the conf files in the info folders using the game names which causes the game info not to appear. These need renaming to game.conf for the info to start displaying again.

Not sure if this is an oversight or not.

Use the latest beta: Aura 1.0 beta v2

If you put for example garou.zip inside the garou mark of the wolves folder, you will see that the conf file inside the info folder has the same name as garou.zip that is: garou.conf The file of the game and the file conf that is inside the folder info, they must have the same name so that the information of the game is shown in the frontend.

You are 100% correct :) Thanks for clarifying.

On a side note, I know you use an xbox controller in the layout. Is there any scope to include a playstation 2 controller? Perhaps you have the clip art files that you can send me so I can replace the files?

I know @bactino, I'm preparing a very big update, where I'm going to add a lot of things and improve the ones that are already there.

I am trying to set this theme up but I am having problems with adding games. Especially Super Nintendo System game called Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World but no matter what I do (and I did correctly setup the parameters ) the game just won't appear in the menu. Is there a or some specific game naming convention the theme is following ?

That's never theme related; if it's there it will show up, with or without art. Perhaps the rom is in the wrong place or with the wrong extension? Perhaps the + causes issues on your OS?

The rom file is in correct position. In the collections/game name/ folder. I tried even to rename the rom file to something more simple like "super mario" and also renamed the corresponding folder name with additional changes to file information but nothing happened. I tried to add a Mame game "super pang" and that worked fine so I suppose in case of a SNES game I have set it up correctly can't track down the error. The log file shows nothing special. Would you be kind to test it out with that specific snes rom game Super Mario All Stars + Super Mario World and see if you can make it run? Thanks in advance

Email me both roms  and I'll see what I can figure out. You're saying it doesn't show in the list? Send me the settings.conf of that collection too then, please.

if you use retroarch:

download core:
Nintendo - SNES/ Famicon (Snes9x) supports: roms smc, sfc, swc, fig, bs

after

archive settings.conf (collections/Super Mario All Stars/settings.conf )
Code: [Select]
list.path            = collections/%ITEM_COLLECTION_NAME%
list.extensions      = smc,sfc,swc,fig,bs
launcher             = Super Nintendo Entertainment System
media.system_artwork = collections/%ITEM_COLLECTION_NAME%/

archive Super Nintendo Entertainment System.conf (launchers/Super Nintendo Entertainment System.conf)
Code: [Select]
executable = %RETROFE_PATH%\emulators\retroarch\retroarch.exe
arguments = retroarch -L "cores\snes9x_libretro.dll" "%ITEM_FILEPATH%"

it should work
