Illuminate 1.0.1

About This File

A modern theme, Illuminate was designed with simplicity and elegance in mind. The box art and video snap of each game takes center stage, while the slightly out-of-focus fanart gets displayed behind flashy shades of blue and yellow and an animated bokeh effect.


This theme takes advantage of the new features in version 9.4 that allow customization on a per-platform basis. Because of this, Illuminate will only work on version 9.4 and above.

Spoiler

Download the Illuminate.zip, right click the zip file, choose properties. In the properties window, unblock the file and choose OK (if the option doesn’t appear it means it’s already unblocked). Now, open the file and drag the folder into the Launchbox\Themes folder.

Awesome theme, can you have it show platform backgrounds when there isn't a video available?

I don't think the default video player can do this. It's possible that one of the custom plugins could do this, but would have to investigate and weigh the pros/cons.

Thanks @ea4492. This is definitely possible. Would need to make it fit into the clean layout that this theme is going for. If I can make it work with little impact to performance, I'll get it in there.

Can we get custom views for general Arcade, Sammy Atomiswave, Sega Naomi and so on?

Arcade is a little finicky, as there's not one standard main image size, or even a standard video snap size. Might be able to make some custom sizes for arcade playlists, depending on whether a certain playlist has a size standard for both posters and video snaps. Although, if someone uses the arcade video themes, they are all 4:3 videos, which the standard layout works well with.

How can i change the game list fonts size to match the same size as the console list fonts? The game list font size is almost half the size.

Hi @Gamer. If I had to guess, this is because your screen's resolution is greater than 1080p. Themes don't have the ability to keep the font size the same in text lists. Would need to use an external plugin to accomplish text list sizing across different resolutions.

If you reduce your resolution to 1920x1080, does this fix the issue you are having?
