Instructions

If you downloaded the "Everything" file, then you should know that Mala is expecting the layouts to be in:

D:\front_end\mala\layouts

If you want to use this directory structure, then run MalaTree.exe -> File -> Directories and change the "Layout Directory" to D:\front_end\mala\layouts. You are done.

If you do not want to use this directory structure, then each of the .mll layout files must be altered.  You can do this 1 of 2 ways. Either edit each layout manually using the MalaLayout.exe program. Or, you can edit the .mll files with a text editor and fix the paths.  A sweet text editor like UltraEdit let's you do all files in 1 fell swoop using the "Replace In Files" feature.

 

Special Thanks

I have not made many game list backgrounds yet. In the meantime, the backgrounds used are thanks to John Crouse, Stuzza, and other MAMEWAH skin makers from the ScreenshotArchive.
Thanks to all the members of
Build Your Own Arcade Controls Forum.  This is the most giving community I've ever been involved with.  This Zebra Mala layout is my way of giving back to the community. I plan on designing more 3rd level gamelist layouts soon.

Enjoy!
