  1. I get it, you guys don't care about your customers. Enough said, I'm moving on to a more stable product with a more mature community. Thanks again and good luck! Cheers
  2. Then create a dependency tree the way Linux does with APT packages so that dependencies can be properly resolved and installed rather than triggering a breaking automatic update. What about all the people buying pre-loaded HTPC, emulation boxes that have a custom skin pre-loaded? Do you really expect these people to conduct a forensics investigation to try to figure out why their system is now broken? Don't ship this product with Automatic Updates enabled by default and when updates are available make sure to point out that if any customization has been applied that the product may experience breakage.
  3. Wow, okay I've heard enough. You insult your customers by saying it's their responsibility to troubleshoot your software when your automatic updates break your program. My problem is solved and I'm not arguing the importance of proper release management here. I'm off to investigate BigBox alternatives.
  4. I understand that but this is a commercial/paid product and if automatic updates are going to be forced onto users, those users should have some degree of confidence that these changes aren't going to break their system. I'm so grateful that I never migrated my arcade cabinet from MALA to BigBox because if I had and an automatic update broke the install (as just happened on my HTPC) I would have been enraged since my cabinet has to be disassembled to plug in a mouse.
  5. Awesome, thanks! I will roll back and block future updates. Looks like everyone else using this theme is broken too
  6. Is there a flag I can set in the BigBox config file to suppress this error? If not, do you have a link to the previous build? It’s a huge pain to try to troubleshoot stuff on my TV and I’d honestly rather just roll back to working system (and block future updates).
  7. See attached screenshot. My BigBox updated today and now I get this error for every game on the GameDetailView panel. This is a standard Windows Forms dialog so I have to connect a mouse to my HTPC just to dismiss the error and launch my games.
  8. I haven't. I've got some many other things going on right now that I really haven't had time to dig into creating a theme from scratch and once I figured out how to edit your great theme for my specific use case, I figured I'd share the details here just in case it might help someone else out. I came to BigBox specifically as a way to replace my consoles and that's why my focus is on newer systems and games (PS2, PSP, Wii, Wii-U, PC, etc).
  9. I don't know if anyone here is interested or not since my use case for BigBox is much different than most (modern PC and Console games --not retro games) but here's a video I created regarding how to do some customizations for this theme like removing scanlines and getting 16:9 aspect ratio videos to render properly
  10. No need, I got it worked out! Thanks though!
  11. Okay, I got it worked out. on line 97 of WheelGamesView.xaml setting, Grid.Column="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="60" Grid.Row="0" did the trick <transitions:TransitionPresenter x:Name="background" Grid.Column="0" Grid.Row="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="60" Grid.RowSpan="24" TransitionSelector="{Binding BackgroundTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding BackgroundView}" Height="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}, Path=Source.PixelHeight}" Width="{Binding RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}, Path=Source.PixelWidth}" IsContentVideo="true" />
  12. I grew up in the Atari/NES era so I don't play those games anymore. Is there a build designed just for 16x9? I found the panel definition; Line 97 of WheelGamesView.xaml so I'll play around and see if there's a way I can get this to display without any stretching (don't care if there are black bars as long as the aspect ratio is correct)
  13. I just downloaded it a few minutes ago so whatever version is the one in this thread is the one I downloaded. Here's a screenshot of what it looks like. The video is squished up to 4:3 where I'd like the panel hosting the window to span the entire width of the screen (with the games list panel on the left sitting on top of the video panel). I'm a Win32 Forms guy with no experience with WPF but I'm sure I could figure out a solution if I knew which XAML file was used for this form (the one below)
  14. @Hexxer, can you tell me which XAML file is the one that formats the video backgrounds? I really like this theme but all the videos are squished into a 4:3 aspect ratio. I need my videos to be 16:9 so I want to edit the XAML but looking over the download there are like 30 XAML files and I have no idea which one is the one that defines the panel used for background videos.
