Looks really good! Wonderful use of the space on the system chooser. It’s really hard to deal with that big white bar in the middle. I’m afraid ES might crash with the hi-res backgrounds being used, though. How many systems can you load before ES dumps you? A 256 meg memory split should get you about 10 systems before white screen of death.

Thanks. For my project I won’t have that many systems so the 1080p backgrounds won’t cause a problem (I hope). However I do realize it could be a problem for others after reading several people experiencing crashes due to large backgrounds and lots of systems. The solution I think is to release 2 versions of the theme, a 1080p version and one with lower resolution backgrounds. If I reduce the backgrounds to 960×540 they are a quarter of the size and still look pretty good.
