About This File

Hi All

Here is my New Theme Scidoc.  

LaunchBox Beta 7.16 up needed.

IMPORTANT MUST READ:

Inside the zip SciDoc 16.10 is a folder called SciDoc this is the folder you must cut out and place in your theme folder!

 have only tested and compiled this on a 16.10 Monitor hopefully it should also work fine on 16.9 Monitors as i do not have one to test it on.

Unzip and Copy or Cut the Folder Scidoc and place inside your Theme Folder in LaunchBox.

All the views are done it is almost fully skinned from top to bottom including the Bigbox page and the Options page as well as the Music Popup.
A toal of 5 Platform Views and 11 Game Views.

In the Images folder for PlatformWheel3FiltersView there is an Overlay3NOSCANLINES.png Just remane it to Overlay3.png for No Scanlines in that platform view.

In the Coverflow with Details views just overwrite and Save in Notepad++
<Grid.Background>
                <ImageBrush ImageSource="pack://siteoforigin:,,,/Themes/SciDoc/Images/CoverDetailsOverlay.png"  RenderOptions.BitmapScalingMode="HighQuality" />
</Grid.Background>
with
<Grid.Background>
                <SolidColorBrush Color="Black" Opacity="{Binding BackgroundFade}" />
</Grid.Background>
If you do not like the Overlay with the theme.


To use this theme fully turn off Platform Video Backgrounds and Game Video Backgrounds.

Platform videos for this theme should be in 16.9 aspect ratio but should also work with 4.3 Videos as well as i have created the overlays to take advantage of the way 4.3 videos left align themselves.  There should hopefully be no problems with the 640x480 Game videos in the game views.

Inside the Platform Folder you will find a folder called Clear Logo, inside this folder you will find 59 Blue Platform Logo's, as well as one Blank Logo. For platform logo's you are missing resize and paste a clear logo in any art program onto this blank logo and rename to the desired platform name.  Always keep the Blank Logo as a Template.

All Videos supplied with the theme are recorded from the visualizer milkdrop by me and are free under the BSD licence as far as my checking could acertain.

With many thanks Maddoc1007.
