About This File

The theme NOW supports ALL Resolutions! (tested from 800x600 thru to 4K)


This theme was written from scratch and offers 4 views for Platform (2 Horizontal, 1 Vertical and 1 Text) and 6 views for Game (4 Horizontal, 1 Vertical and 1 Text)

There are 5 color options and 3 alternate views to support Boxes, 3D Boxes and Clear Logos.

The .zip file contains custom Banners, custom Platform Clear Logos (with Template) and I have separately posted the Platform and Game Clear Logos in the downloads section.

I have included a separate Installation and Setup Guide.


NOTE:  You MUST change the video playback Engine to Windows Media Player 


Many thanks to the following people:


@SIMPLY AUSTIN for my Theme design, one of his videos inspired me

@Grila for his Controller and Battery dll’s

@Zombeaver for the platform banner idea

@viking for the platform videos


And last but not least @Jason Carr

It has appealing look, although, there is a lot of unused space ,maybe rearange a bit by moving description down and game details above it would give a lot more room for description

Also game snap doesnt seem to be fitting fully into screen box its missing on each side

I just recently updated to the newest version and now Im really impressed with whats changed and the look I was hoping to get.

Creator even worked with me to correct my issues. Great work. If you have not tried this theme yet, I recommend that you do. Hopefully y2guru keeps it coming. Thanks again for this work!
