Credit to huntsman for his awesome arkade720 theme on which this is built upon. I've expanded support to 81 out of the 84 supported systems, created new system icons and added new system backgrounds snapped from launchbox Unified theme videos.

UPDATE 2019/10/27 - Unified Arkade version 2.0.

This new version now features support for 109 systems including many not seen on any other themes. The much bigger file size is due to the new addition of a curated set of some of my favourite 8/16 bit music with each system having a unique track. Enjoy.

  • The best theme ever. Thanks. But i recomend to add light 8bit music into it

  • This is super nice!

  • can you please create CPS 1 CPS 2 and CPS 3 ? thats the only thing i'm really missing i just love it,

  • For me whats missing is neo geo pocket + neo geo pocket color + wonderswan + wonderswan color + cps1 + cps2 _+cps3

  • REally thank you for your update sir \o

  • New version of this theme is coming soon with over 100 of my favourite retro game tunes.

  • Cant wait to try the new version XD

  • I've sent it over to dig. Just waiting for him to upload it.

  • Looks great \o waiting for it hehehe

  • Amazing work thanks!

  • Theme looks fantastic! Thanks!

    How do you change the system background and icon if they are not aligned to the correct systems? For instance in my installation, CPS-3 graphics are aligned to CPS-2 and CPS-2 to CPS-3, Atomiswave to Mame and Mame to FBA.

    Here's some Final Burn Alpha graphics I created for my own use in the style of this theme. Thought I'd share.

    FYI, I downsized the system background to 720p so I could post it.

  • Nice work, fits the theme perfectly. Thanks. I can't believe I hadn't thought to add Final Burn as a standalone system myself.

    It matters the order you setup the cloned systems. The first time a clone system is created it looks for media called "clone1" and each new cloned system counts up by one so "clone2", "clone3" etc. I'm not totally certain if deleting any system clones you already have setup and starting fresh would fix it or not. I think it likely you would have to go into the theme archive and manually change the names of all the different media files that are mixed up for you

    This is the order in which I setup the cloned systems.

    Clone1 atomiswave

    Clone2 Cps-1

    Clone3 cps2

    Clone4 cps-3

    Clone5 b/w wonderswan

    Clone6 b/w neogeopocket

    Clone7 sega classics

    Clone8 capcom classics

    Clone9 commodore128

    Clone10 Namco classics

    Clone11 dataeast classics

    Clone12 Atari classics

    Clone13 item classics

    Clone14 Konami classics

    Clone15 midway classics

    Clone16 Sink classics

    Clone17 taito classics

    Clone18 Williams classics

    Clone19 commodore plus4

    Clone20 Famicom disk system

    Clone21 Nintendo bsx

    Clone22 n64dd

    Clone23 WiiWare

    Clone24 psp minis

    Clone25 NEC supergrafx

    Clone26 Dreamcast vmu

    Clone27 Sony pocketstation

    Clone28 Daphne.

    The last three systems are wishful thinking, I've asked the developer to add them as there are emulators for them so I'm hopeful they'll be usable soon.

  • Here's some media for Nintendo 3ds now it's supported.

    been added.



  • Thanks for the tip on the clone order, that helps a lot. I've re-named the files in the folders for the mis-mapped graphics and it works fine now. The amusing change I had to make was to rename FBA to Mame, works fine though and it's all behind the scenes.

  • I have cloned Neogeo pocket and Wonderswan for color versions but in Neogeo pocket color appears CPS 1 theme and in Wonderswan color appears Atomiswave theme !

    Hi, have a look at my chat with dr.bunsen earlier in this thread on how to avoid this problem. It matters the order in which you setup the clone systems otherwise you have to change the filenames contained in the zip-file to match up with the order in which you have already created them.

    For the neo Geo pocket and wonderswan, I've left the color variations as the originals and made the b/w versions of each the clones.

  • Ok I fixed some clones ! Fantastic work ! This the best looking theme for DIG so far..

  • Thank you for the kind words, I sometimes get long periods of spare time while at work so enjoy whiling the hours away creating these themes but positive feedback keep me invested.

  • Chalotron Great work!!! Been using this theme for awhile and appreciate the update!

    can you put out a YouTube video on how to get the clone systems to show for newbies like me? Or atleast a step by step I couldn’t get things like N64’s dd to show.

    Thanks!

  • Creating YouTube videos is not really my forte but I'll help as best I can here.

    Firstly i'm assuming you haven't setup up any clone systems yet.

    So to setup N64DD you first need to clone Nintendo 64 as that carries over the correct emulator settings. To do this you go into systems and then long click on Nintendo 64 and then select clone system.

    Once the clone is created, Dig will look for media (system image, system icon, games background, audio file) each of which are in seperate folders in the zipfile and each need to be called clone1. Because the first cloned system I set up was Atomiswave your new clone will be assigned all the media associated with Atomiswave.

    N64DD was for me the 22nd clone system that I had setup so all the media associated with it is in the zip-file is called clone22 and each piece needs to be manually renamed to clone1.

    Hope this helps.

    Thanks didn’t even realize that’s what clone system meant.

    very simple to do
