  1. Great idea for a thread! I am working on quite a few themes at the minute but this one does seem quite straight forward so will pick this up once I have finished work on the others I am currently working on if no one does in the meantime.
  2. You need to edit the systemview.xaml in Visual Studio. If you look for a text block on the page that has a title set to "Version" that is the one you need to move.
  3. I am hoping to get it uploaded very soon all being well. Been slowed down slightly by a few things including my PC being replaced and being away over Easter but got a few themes in the work but this one will now be first hopefully this weekend.
  4. @eatkinola I’ve just tried this again. Whilst there is a textblock on the systems view it does not have a binding and seems to be populated based on the textblock having its name set as “Version”. Whilst this works fine on the systems view I am trying to place this onto the other views within the theme. When I sett a textblock with the name “Version” it does not get populated with the version number on any of the other views I have tried. I suspect I’m missing something but cannot work out how this textblock is being populated on the systems view to be able to replicate this on the other view
  5. Thanks I did look but couldn’t find the field on the page but will check again in default theme . I probably just missed it somehow.
  6. Is there a binding available that will return the users current BigBox version so that this can be displayed within the theme? It is obviously visible in the systems menu so I expect this can be grabbed somehow just cannot currently see how?
  7. Thanks @Newlander I got the list through PM - thanks again for doing that. in the new theme I have focussed on the horizontal theme layout as that is how Nesica is setup originally and has allowed me to have different styles but keeping closer to the original design. Would be good to know though if people are using the vertical style wheel views currently as if these will be missed I will try to either incorporate them back in or alternatively make a vertical wheel version of the theme after this new version is released?
  8. Glad you like the theme. I have been very busy with work over the past few months but am now back to work on the themes and am hoping to have a completely reworked version of this theme uploaded next week. The new theme has completely reworked graphics and tables which should allow it to scale correctly all the way up to 4K resolution. The theme also has improved control layouts and cleaner banner images. I will add in additional systems for banners and controls if you can provide a list of which systems in particular you would like that are currently missing. With regards controls my intentio
  9. @FreeSoftwareServers glad you like the theme and sorry not been on here in a little while. thanks for the info around the music notification issue. This should be a simple fix so will take a look and hopefully have a corrected version uploaded this week.
  10. Does anyone know if it is possible to change the number of boxes displayed horizontally in the wallview or is it locked at 5?
  11. @Hexxxer Thanks for your help with this though unfortunately I have failed to get this working with the suggestions above. I cannot find a way to declare variables within the XAML file without generating an error - where should these lines be placed?
  12. @DjBlades It's the coverflow value and in particular it is the CameraPosition value - the higher the figure the further away the boxes are and in turn appear "smaller" on screen
  13. Thanks, good catch I will amend in the code and upload a revised version this week.
  14. I am building a new theme currently but really need to be able to reformat the Selectedgame.Genresstring binding so that it is not presented as genre1;genre2;genre3 as this looks very messy when displayed on the theme. Does anyone know of any way to return only the first genre from the list or alternatively how to reformat the string so that the ; are removed?
  15. @Pyrometheous you're more than welcome and it was only a very slight change to the code on each view to change the format of the flowcontrol from banner style dimensions to one more suited to boxart. The theme is up now. I will also try to get the template for the controller layouts uploaded in the next few days too so that people can amend the controller layout images easily with GIMP GNU to their own setups.

  18. @Pyrometheous and @jarvey_14, was much quicker than I thought and have a new version of the theme being uploaded now called Griddle Boxview (should be up in next 15 mins) - you can install this alongside this theme and switch between the themes as you wish. Only thing not sorted in either yet is the video dimensions issue @jarvey_14 reported which I cannot seem to replicate here - can you advise which videos you are using when this occurs?
  19. @Pyrometheous thanks for the comments. It seems a few people are disappointed I have focussed on banner style covers rather than supporting all media types. It would not be much work to be able to set this so that other media can be used but would require a new theme to be created as unlike the previous theme I have set this so each view just changes colour rather than wheel image type to keep the look consistent. I will try and get another theme created shortly as a variant of this one that allows for boxfront images instead of banner style images - I think that should also help @jarvey_14 ha
  20. Hi @jarvey_14, since the last theme I made the decision to format the wheel from now on for Steam style Banner format. The reason for this was that setting the size for boxart fronts means that you can make the spacing appear right for some systems but not all and one system or another always ends up not looking right (more often than not SNES boxes are the worst looking and arcade flyers are all over the place). The same is also true if setting the wheel to display media as the carts/disk/floppies are different sizes so what looks right for one system does not look great for another. I have c
  21. Thanks for all the positive feedback. @Pyrometheous Hope you like it. Those templates you uploaded look very good and are very similar to the ones in this theme. Having templates that are easy for users to edit would definitely be a good thing. I have the template file for the ones I created. If anyone's interested I can upload those as well?
  22. Thanks for the feedback. I had it set like that as using on a cabinet but meant to change to a more standard layout before uploading but forgot. easy for me to correct that, I'll go through the controls this week and upload a new minor version with controls corrected.

  25. Thanks @Pyrometheous for both the review and publisher logos contribution - glad you like the theme! Adding the line in sounds like an error on my part and should be simple to fix - I'll try and get an amended theme uploaded this week. I am also still working on making this theme more responsive so it resizes better to other resolutions and am also working on a new theme which will incorporate many of the elements of Nesica but be a theme specific to BigBox only. Had a lot on st work recently so progress has been a bit slower than planned. Would you mind if i included your
