The new one thats being discussed is attract mode:

SUGGESTION: attact-mode front-end as an alternative to emulationstation

Emulationstation theme documentation is here:


You can look at this theme and the accompanying xmls to get an idea of layouts without metadata:


For example you could use something like this section (https://github.com/HerbFargus/es-theme-carbon-nometa/blob/master/gb/theme.xml#L92-L97) to play with where pictures are placed/ adding new images to the gamelist page for each system, etc. just takes a bunch of trial and error. It’s easiest to start with a theme that is finished and then just ammend it for your own needs.
