  1. I've looked around and made sure that this isn't a thing that can already be done, but excuse me if there's some way you can actually do this in HyperSpin. Right now in HyperSpin you have a per-system option to either show info for all games (as in the Genre, Year, Manufacturer, Title shown in the lower left by default) via "remove_info_text". For games using the systems Default theme, this is completely fine -space wise- but more often than not, themes makers will try to stuff lots of art into a space that is restricted by text that - to be honest - is useless when a theme exists for the game, given that themes usually exhibit the title of the game and/or the manufacturer. Since remove_info_text is false by default for all newly installed systems, themes tend to either be designed around all this extraneous text - which limits the amount space actually used for art - or designed in a way that completely ignores all the UI placement, which ends up with UI text overlapping artwork, logos, videos and whatnot. Not good. I sometimes find myself manually editing many user-created themes so that the art and videos contained withe them isn't obscured by game info. Take for example: One simple way to avoid this is to add a toggle-able option which will hide or show info_text and info_wheel depending on if a theme exists for the game or not. Think of it as fullscreen themes - leaving the user to experience the entirety of the theme, rather than having obscuring text. It's a matter of personal preference, really. Maybe alternatively there could be an option to fade in said information after the theme has finished animating in or after a predefined amount of time? Sure, I don't see this option being overly time-saving when looking for one game in thousands of themed games of a system - as you'd need to wait until after the theme has animated in until the game information appears. But I'm sure most people can quickly determine what a game is by its wheel art - and besides - with the upcoming search feature you won't have to do that! I also just noticed that in HS1.3 "remove_info_wheel" and "remove_info_text" does pretty much nothing in my MAME wheel. Does it not do what I'm assuming it does?
