  1. @viking It runs much better for me on my surface pro 6. I get odd hitching on the movie sliding as you mentioned above. I have had this with a couple themes and I have found it has to do with loading. A half second or more of extra padding in the timing in video visibility fixes most everything for me. I have attached my modified version of your platform so you can see what runs well on my lower spec machine. I would like to add that my machine slows every time I change views or themes in the Bigbox settings. I suggest people restart BigBox to make sure it's running at it's full potential after playing with the settings. PlatformWheel3FiltersView.xaml
  2. @viking Thank you for the color info. The "BlurRadius" setting under "DrapShadowEffect" for the "Big Bloc - Background" is what seems to slow down things on my surface pro. The higher the BlurRadius value the more it chugs. 4k videos run well but I do have the HD ones downloaded and it set to use VLC. I'm not advocating for any change to your theme. Someone else on a lower spec machine might find it useful. It's easy enough to edit the xaml file with all your nice commenting inside the file:
  3. This a great theme. It looks great, is clean, and simple. I'm curious why some colors don't match the videos with the SelectionSnoop plugin? Genesis, for example, shows up white. I run this theme on a surface book pro 6. To get it to run smooth I have to change all blur effects to "0" and gave the transition from white to movie and extra .5 to 1 second for things to load. Do you have plans to makes video's for an Apple IIe or the Magnavox Intellivision? Again, your work is excellent. Thank you for making it.
  4. Yes. When the icons change to device images, starting with the arcade, it's in the platforms section.
  5. I uploaded a video. I'm sure all my underlying xaml code is a nightmare but I had fun learning how to tweak the interface.
  6. I have made a theme inspired by Coverbox and Retrotastic. I enjoy attract mode and wanted something that showed off the art of the games without to many distractions and could work in a multi-platform playlist. Here are some images from my theme. Supported systems are:Atari 2600, Magnavox, Intellivision, ColecoVision, NES, SNES, N64, GameCube, Dreamcast, Wii, Gameboy, Gameboy Color, Gameboy Advanced, Nds, 3ds, SMS, Genesis, SegaCD, 32X, Saturn, Dreamcast, Turbo 16, Turbo CD, Ps1, Ps2, ScummVM, MS-Dos, Arcade, Stea Here's a video showing it in action:
  7. I understand, thank you. Again, wonderful work on the theme.
  8. This is one of my favorite themes. Every system supported looks great. I have a few playlists that include multiple systems. (Like a Castlevania playlist) Coverbox defaults to a generic template. Is it possible to have multiple platforms views in a single playlist? Retrotastic is able to switch to each systems custom skin and I enjoy using this in attract mode. I appreciate all your work on this theme. It really presents everything in a well thought out way.
