About This File

Here's my first (and probably last) Theme submission, if it wasn't for the work of @CriticalCid and his CriticalZoneV2 - BlueBox theme I probably would never have attempted this, but I had a lot of fun putting this together and now its time for me to focus on building my collection and correcting missing and incorrect artwork :-) 

Special thanks to @CriticalCid @keltoigael @eatkinola and @Grila

 

Simply download, unzip and place the unzipped Y2Guru - Plain and Simple folder into  LaunchBox\Themes\

Please read the Installation and Setup Guide.rtf located inside the Y2Guru - Plain and Simple folder.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting this theme and artwork together.

Cheers,

Dave

 

 


What's New in Version 2.0   See changelog

Released

2.00 COMMUNITY Edition

The original Theme took about 2 months to put together and test, this version was created in about 4 hours using the COMMUNITY Theme Creator, this is not a straight up port, it is similar but ive added Text Views and animations (mainly because I am currently working/testing the new Animation Editor for the Theme Creator)

Completely optional download, if you liked the original then you might like this version. Let me know what you think.

 

 

 

 

1.03

Fixed some video and Icon alignment issues.

Controller, Battery and Time no longer the same color as Game Title (I thought it was too distracting)

Battery now shows charging status when portable device is being charged.

 

1.02

Total Games will no longer display when view Platform Categories or Playlists

 

1.01

1. Game View (Light, Medium and Dark Modes) fixed the Icon alignment of Star rating, favorite etc.. when no Game Rating (T-Teen, M-Mature) exists.

2. Platform view (Light, Medium and Dark Modes)

a) Fixed the text formatting for Media Type

b) When displaying platform categories the total games of 0 was displayed, now corrected. @shadowblind

3. Theme folder contained erroneous folders, I believe visual studio created them. Not required and removed from this zip @neil9000

 

Miscellaneous.

I forgot to mention on here that this theme contains the Platform Clear Logos that you see in the screenshots, the folder contains a zip file containing all the layers that make up the logo in case you wish to make your own.

The Theme has 3 modes as mentioned above.... Light, Medium and Dark modes to suit your viewing preferences.

The Theme has been tested on both a desktop running in both 4K and 1080P (primarily) and extensively tested on a GPD Win 10, the battery indicator will only show up on devices that utilize a battery. thanks @Grila!

@y2guru This theme is beautiful and simple, and the background color pallet (as shown in the second preview picture) is wonderful and a great choice! If I could make a small suggestion for this theme, it would be to ADD a "wall view" (where you can scroll up and down to select different games) option where seven or eight columns can showcase the games; I think it would be a great additional feature to further showcase the collection.

Is there a way where maybe I can do this myself? Are there instructions on how to do it?

thanks.

Another great Theme and shining example of the power of the Tool you have created for all of us. Loving this theme and its simplicity is so nice at times. I use the same platform videos and it looks so clean together. Great Job Mate!

@y2guru I love the revised theme apart from the video bounce. Can I remove this by editing one of the XMLs?

 

Thank you

You can download the Community Theme Creator 1.0.7.9 and this theme is included, video bounce has been removed and the UI cleaned up, it comes with clear logo templates that you can use to render all your platforms, platform categories, playlistss and games
