    Nice troubleshooting! I'll fix this for the next release. Again I'm a touch envious. Nice setup! :^) That's a good idea. I just finished the viking category backgrounds and will include those in the release. See what you think of those. We can always add more; I like the idea of giving more options.

    @Retro808: Sadly no stand-up arcade here, nor is my tv that big but at least I have a comfy couch to sit on. If you have other ideas for a default background, let me know and I'd be happy to try some new concepts. @Omen seems pretty handy with photoshop, so perhaps he can whip up something? Hey @Omen would you please send me that blank background by the way?

    Good question. If a date is defined in LB for a platform, that date is used. If not defined for a platform, or if dealing with a platform category or playlist, the plugin tries to figure out a suitable year by scanning the platforms and/or games and choosing the earliest date. I thought it'd be nice to always include a year when possible. If you find a case where it's not working correctly, please let me know and I'll have a look. For playlists where no year is displayed, do the games not have a year defined?

    Thanks, Jason. Feel better soon. Remember it's okay to take a break!

    Here's a version with the couch a little higher to fit into the scene better (I think). Also attached is the PNG if you want to try it; rename to @ZDEFAULT.png and copy into the Categories and Platforms subfolders of AVLF. Phew I'm gonna crash now. Let me know what y'all think. @Retro808: I'll try to leverage viking's category videos in keeping with the theme; we'll see how it goes. EDIT: To apply the PNG, you'll also need to make a change to the @INDEX files in the Categories and Platforms folders, to account for the different video position within the background image. @ZDEFAULT.png |#| 0.473,0.104,0.040,0.409 |#| DEFAULT |#| DEFAULT

    Hmm, that's odd. I've not noticed that on my setup, but VLC is crashing a lot more lately with recent BB betas. I might let the dust settle on the beta issues. I switched over to WMP for now, too. I made a note of this issue and will investigate. Thanks for the report!

    Created a new default background for categories and playlists. I used viking's bg for movies/kodi as the starting point. I think it looks okay but wonder if it's missing something. Maybe some ambient lighting or some other deco? If someone with more ps/gimp skills than me wants to step up and make it better, have at it! GIMP file: Nostalgia-BG-TV-Samsung.xcf

    Yes, look in Styles\Nostalgia.xaml -- you can edit the styles of most UI elements there. I think I used Aqua for the clock and vertical year placard.

    Gotcha. A simple plugin control should get the job done without having to copy the theme. I'll take a crack at it.

    Thanks, R. For which view are you trying to change the background? Perhaps you could upload a screenshot?

    Just posted an update v0.99 -- please see changelog on download page. Thanks for all the bug reports, troubleshooting, and ideas. Keep 'em coming.

    Thanks, Omen. At least we've isolated it to VLC. Is it occurring less frequently since we disabled HW encoding?
  13. 7.12-beta-1 Released

    Depending on the theme, you cannot just put it in a different-named folder and have it work. The theme might be looking for files in the original folder.

    Thanks! I'll include a fix in the next release. I've tackled most of the issues already.

    @Porl Hendy: Found a solution for this -- just renamed the assembly to Ao.Bigbox.Themer.v3_0 (included versioning in the name) on compiling, then updated the refs in XAML files. Poof, these conflicts are gone at least in my testing. I'll include this fix in the next release. Thanks again for bringing this issue to the forefront, as it needed to be promptly addressed.
