I think you'll like this one better... both vertical and horizontal working...

Your SD Arcade themes are near perfection!...love em.

Would be interested in one without the game snaps on each side. Hell, I'd even donate for all your effort...probably should anyway. For reals.

:lol: :D :lol:
Amazingly, this is turning out to be more difficult that originally thought. The carrier module that is used to move the snaps has a buffer setting between tiles, but it acts very odd... not the way I envisioned...

THAT SAID, I have an idea, but implementing it in to the SDArcade layout may be a little messy. But maybe doable. I was considering adding an "overlay" option anyway (think of a skin of the inside of a spaceship looking out a window)... hmmm...

UPDATED to v1.1. Included in the update:

Up/down scrolling added
Progress bar added (vertical and horizontal)
New font allows more characters on screen (useful for long game names)
Other minor tweaks

You can see a (pretty low res admittedly) demo of the progress bar (horizontal/vertical) here:

You can see another low res demo of the vertical/horizontal scrolling here (note: this capture was taken before I changed fonts or added the progress bar):

The link to this layout is in the original post up top.

You have outdone yourself sir!!!

The slider is perfect, I would just change to allow the letter colour to change like the title colour can be.

Now time to look at your code!

>Argh<

;)

Chances are high you'll see a v1.2 eventually...

:D

EDIT: BTW ... the slider code was hacked / modified... as is just about everything I do. I freely admit I am merely a hack at this stuff... but I think a pretty good one?

I understand, what I have been doing. I have already moved the slider over to your SDArcade v2.x

Have clock running on mine. Am now working on some coloring..Your slider is way better than the one I found. cleaner..

The slider is from "The Invaders" ... at least the code to move the "letter" and "circle" ... the actual art for the "circle" and bar were thrown together ala photoshop. I've not bothered with a clock as my rigs still aren't online.
