About This File

A stylish, background heavy focused theme with inspiration from the unreleased Aura 4k theme by iGarikoitz. The theme itself uses your clear logo images, fanart - background images, screenshot images, and game video snaps to create this completed theme. There is a number of white platform clear logos made by Dan Patrick and 100+ platform/playlist/category backgrounds are included that I have curated with the ability to add your own. This theme will gracefully fall back to different images to make sure something is always displayed.

Requirements

  • LaunchBox must be on version 13.1 or higher (or you'll get errors)
  • Theme is made for a 16:9 aspect ratio

Views

  • Platform Wheel 1 - The main platform wheel for this theme
  • Text Filters View - Used primarily when viewing other filter sections
  • Horizontal Wheel 1 - The main game view for this theme
  • Horizontal Wheel 2 - An alternate game view that uses your screenshots and video snaps
  • Text Games View - Mostly used for the Game Details Menu view, but could be used as a game view

For Theme Developers
There are a number of features in this theme that have never been done before. You can examine the code to learn the following:

  • Use of a progress bar with the game count bindings that provides dynamic visual feedback of where you are in your game list as you are navigating around
  • Use of the Index Visibility binding to provide animation triggers. This allows you to provide smooth animations to any element when opening and closing the alpha-numeric index
  • The use of FlowImage (and its bindings) to provide performant image fallbacks. Using FlowImage over an Image element increases performance by loading images in an off-thread, provides better disposal logic, and doesn't lock the file that is located on the hard drive.
  • The use of an item offset converter, which allows you to display images (or metadata) for games that  are (+ or -) around the game or platform that is selected.


Thanks to
Dan Patrick - for use of his white clear logo pack
