That theme is included already, just need to select it for the menu you want to use it in.

It's actually not the same as the one included in the current build of ARPiCADE. It has a slightly modified layout.nut and the wheel artwork appears in the centre of the screen rather than at the side. Looks loads better imo.

All of the Cools themes seem to have a minor problem where it shows a black line to the right of the wheel artwork. It's hard to spot if you are using full screen video previews in the background but still a minor annoyance.

I attached the alternative Cools theme here...

If you want it to look like the one in my video, use HyperSpin wheel artwork .png's and the HD video previews from Emumovies (will need to turn on Hardware video acceleration in the attract mode options or they will keep pausing) the standard def video previews dont have that problem but look bad in full screen. Also changed the font back to FreeSans as it also looks much better imo and the titles will actually fit on the screen at the bottom!

There is a black vertical lines at the right handside of every single "wheel" artworks (logos) on my setup.
Do you experience the same issue?
