#07. Option & change :

Thx to @Nyny77 :
 On the platform view, to replace the DATE by the NUMBER OF GAMES :

  • Find the good platform view file  (like "PlatformWheel1FiltersView.xaml")
  • In file, find these line :
    <!--"DATE" IN SMALL LINE-->
                <Viewbox StretchDirection="DownOnly" Stretch="Uniform" Grid.Row="2">
                <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=SelectedPlatform.ReleaseDate, StringFormat=yyyy}" Foreground="#393a3b" FontFamily="Segoe UI Semilight" FontSize="40" TextAlignment="Center" Opacity="0.9"/>
                </Viewbox>
  • Delete these lines and replace them with these :
    <!-- PLATFORM TOTAL GAMES -->
                <TextBlock Grid.Row="2"  Text="GAMES AVAILABLE: " Foreground="#393a3b" FontFamily="Segoe UI Semilight" FontSize="40" TextAlignment="Left" Margin="750,0,0,0"/>
                <TextBlock Grid.Row="2"  Text="{Binding Path=SelectedPlatform.TotalGameCount}" Foreground="#393a3b" FontFamily="Segoe UI Semilight" FontSize="40" TextAlignment="Left" Margin="1100,0,0,0"/>

Strange. What version of LaunchBox you use? Works great on v.6.9 beta.24

To enable BETA downloading in LaunchBox, go to "Options > General > Update> Enable : Update to Beta"

I'm using 6.8 stable... is 6.9 a requirement?

Update: I updated to 6.9.24 and no longer get the error message, however the theme doesn't seem to be displaying (looks just like the new default theme) please could you be specific for which views/images need to be checked for it to work please?

@poisongoomba

Thx !
To delete the date:

  • Find the good platform view file in : LaunchBox\Themes\StationEmulation\Views
  • In this file, find and delete these lines 
  • <!--"DATE" IN SMALL LINE-->
                <Viewbox StretchDirection="DownOnly" Stretch="Uniform" Grid.Row="2">
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=SelectedPlatform.ReleaseDate, StringFormat=yyyy}" Foreground="#393a3b" FontFamily="Segoe UI Semilight" FontSize="40" TextAlignment="Center" Opacity="0.9"/>
                </Viewbox>

     Save the file

To delete the grey line , also remove :

<Border Grid.Row="2">
                <Border.Background>
                    <SolidColorBrush Color="#c8c8c8" Opacity="0.9" />
                </Border.Background>
            </Border>

Any way to remove the searching of games by numbers/letters? My friends keep hitting left DPAD wondering why they can't select anything.

That's a Bigbox feature and is in every theme not just this one. Unfortunately it can not be disabled.

Hello! I really liked the Pixel Theme inside the original RetroPie/EmulationStation. Hoping for a version 2 of your theme!

Just wanted to let you know, version 1.3 of the theme requires 1.2 background image media. It should be standalone.

Otherwise, others downloading version 1.3 of the theme won't see the background blurred images.
