1080X Ambermoon Bezel Theme
Starting with version 1.3.8, FS-UAE supports loading themes, and here is a theme based on the very nice bezel created by the artist “Ambermoon”.
To use, download 1084x_night_wall_white_1.0.zip and unzip the content into (My) Documents/FS-UAE/Themes/.
Finally, you must set the following option in your config file to enable the theme:
theme = 1084x_night_wall_white_1.0
Ambermoon has created several variants of the bezel with different backgrounds and other lighting conditions. You can download 1084x_bezels_101.zip if you want to try out the other variants (and you can modify theme.conf in a text editor to alter the name of the overlay image).
Topaz Menu Font for FS-UAE
A replacement menu font based on the Amiga font Topaz has been created by nexusle of English Amiga Board. You can download menu-font.png and overwrite the one from the FS-UAE distribution if you want to use this one instead of the default font.
“Finally, you must set the following option in your config file to enable the theme:
theme = 1084x_night_wall_white_1.0”
PLEASE, i don’t get where to add this string. i’m using mac, i’ve downloaded the theme and excracted in: Documents/fsuae/themes
Hi, you can specify this in Advanced Settings in FS-UAE Launcher.
I am currently using FS-UAE launcher 2.9.7dev2 on Manjaro Linux. I love to add the old night wall night theme as I think it really set this emulator apart from others. Sadly, when I use this them I get 2 black bars on either side of the screen.
Is there any solution to this?
I have supplied a screenshot to my problem.
Yes, there is/was an option to hide the bezel, although in 3.0, the bezel is off by default 🙂

I’ve copied the System hard drive from an A1200 across to a Mac Laptop (using a CF card adapter on the A1200 and a CF reader on the Mac laptop). I’m not able to boot the System ‘hard drive folder’. Any thoughts on where I’m going wrong?
p.s. Awesome software. Thanks for making it available!
Hi, it’s a bit difficult to comment due to lack of information. At minimum, I need the following information:
– A description of how it fails to boot (what happens instead of booting as you expected).
– A directory listing of the System “hard drive folder”, so I can see if looks like it contains the expected files/directories.
Hi, how i can use shader option if use theme? It is possible? Not found for me if write this option to theme conf and fs-uae conf.
I’m sorry, I’m not sure if I understand the problem. Can you give (a lot) more details about what you are trying to do?
Can the bezel be an animated file such as a gif or a flash file. Could open up some possibilities with some animation.
No, sorry, only a static image is supported 🙂
Thanks for your reply. Would it be hard to implement animated images such as gif support? I had in mind something like this (I prepared the animations):
I downloaded 1.3.16 from EAB this evening. The new launcher does indeed ignore host.fs_uae. However, I did not realize it also ignores the theme.conf file. I spent about 30 minutes trying to figure out why the theme did not load while the other options I pasted into the settings worked fine. I finally thought to look at the log file. That told me the theme was being loaded and the theme.conf file was being skipped. Once I added the theme.conf settings to FS-UAE launcher settings, the theme worked fine.
In my testing, I tried entering my directory path as well as the theme folder. Then, I ran into a problem where the length of the directory path plus the theme folder was too long.
As the launcher leaves beta status, I am hoping the launcher documentation will be as complete as the other documentation you have already provided.
Hi, the problem with theme.conf was unintentional, and will be fixed in the next version -thank you for reporting it. I will document the launcher as well, preferably before it leaves beta status 🙂
Thanks for the quick response. It’s good to hear that the theme.conf problem was just a problem. I thought I had missed something in the notes for 1.3.16.
I think I need to set up an account at EAB. 🙂
Hi, I can’t see any Theme 🙁 -However no error is displaying […] Ok, now it works, on this page http://fengestad.no/fs-uae/theme-options is clarified that option “theme = ” wants a folder 😉
NOTE: on Archlinux correct folder is /home/user/FS-UAE/Themes/theme_folder
Whether it is ~/Documents/FS-UAE or ~/FS-UAE or something else depends on whether XDG desktop dirs are configured correctly / at all, or not.
