LBPlex 1.4

About This File

LBPlex is a theme that mimics Plex Media Server's website interface. Two versions are included in the package: LBPlex - which has the default item spacing on the sidebar and list view, and LBPlex Condensed - which has much tighter item spacing on the sidebar and list view. I have also replaced the volume "knob" with a regular slider.

NOTES:

  • All the colors in this theme are hard-coded with the exception of the Foreground (text) color in the LaunchBox Options\Legacy\Theme\Colors menu.
  • The Background Opacity slider in the LaunchBox Options\Visuals\Boxes menu has no effect right now. A fix is in-coming so this will work at a later date. Update: If you run the latest LaunchBox Beta (8.7-beta-1 or above) this is fixed.
  • The Fade Background slider in LaunchBox Options\Images\Default Background will adjust the brightness of the theme background image.

Enjoy :)

Looking good, also thumbs up for the "knob" removal :).  I think the scrollbar thumbs would look cooler with rounded tips, not such a fan of boxy scrollbars (unless they are directly on the edge of the screen like android) for some reason.

A few questions:

- How can I add more space padding between text elements in the left view?   (im lokking into your xamls)
- How had you get square perfect screenshots???   I really love your capture!!

Regards!!!

You're right, I'll change them for the next update.

Looks great but for some reason it doesn't work on my machine. I'm on version 8.7 beta 1. I get some error message that prompts me to report the error on a website that I don't know about and and requires registration. Happens on both themes LBPLEX V1.3

lol, sorry fella didnt mean to come over like that. :)  Its just that i asked him if he unzipped to LBThemes and he said yes, so i completely overlooked that the error had BigBox in it :( so im glad you pointed that out before i went down a rabbit hole. :)

Same question here. I assume You use background images. but when i put aspect ratio to 1.0 it looks nearly as good as yours but backgrounds images have different dimensions and some of them looks bad. do you use the same dimension for all background images? and if yes what is this dimension? i could scale all my background images just to get the look you have.

 

props for this man. it looks great.

@Grila is using custom resized images he made for his personal build, so yours wont look exactly the same as his.

How do you install it ?

 

Unzip the two folders to your Launchbox/LBThemes folder. Then go to tools/options/visuals and pick it from the dropdown, and restart Launchbox.

Nice theme! But i was actually a fan of the volume knob. ;) Maybe give us an option (inside the ControlsView.xaml) to bring it back?

Or you could just copy it from the default theme ControlsView.xaml and paste it in there...

I meant just copy the volume knob code and paste it in LBPlex by where I have the volume slider. You can't just replace the whole file.
