    Yes, I did change the design to try and make the themes more cohesive. As a theme can only have one text view, I unfortunately won't be able to add the old text views back. However, you can modify and add those views back for your purposes. I had responded to @alnyden about a similar question earlier in this thread; you might check with him to see if he already did this.

    RΞfΔktΦR

    RΞfΔktΦR View File RΞfΔktΦR is a relatively simple text view-based theme showcasing videos and screenshots while keeping things clean. It's designed to work with either 16:9 or 4:3, though you might need to tweak some settings using the configuration guide. It's bundled with a collection of category, playlist, and platform banners; to which one can easily add their own banners. Due to its reliance on certain plugin features, the current version of this theme requires LB version 8+. NOTE: Unblocking the ZIP file will also unblock the DLLs (e.g., Ao.Bigbox.Themer.dll and others) contained therein, giving your computer permission to run these DLLs. This is an issue with all plugins you might download from this forum. It's a Windows security feature. You basically have to vouch for a file before Windows will use it. I liken it to how a MS office document you download from an email runs in Protected Mode until you unblock it for printing, editing, etc. Below is the error you'll see if you don't unblock the file, as well as a screenshot of the solution.

    Sorry to hear that. If you feel like trying it again, send me a screenshot of the crash report and I can look into it. I always appreciate those bug reports.

    No problem -- thanks for reporting this bug!

    Thanks, that narrows it down a bit. Does it happen when you select a certain platform, or with all platforms? If certain platforms, what are their names? P.s. I would expect the text-based view and wheel views to work fine. This error should only affect Platform/GameWheel1 and Platform/GameWheel3. P.p.s. MinimalX would give the same error on these views, as it uses the same control.

    Have some questions to try and help you better -- What version of LaunchBox are you running? Would you please provide an error report? - e.g., screenshot of the error that pops up when LB crashes. Are you using Windows Media Player or VLC to display videos? Does the MinimalX theme run fine on your setup?

    MinimalX

    You're very welcome! Thanks to @Grila for putting together such a nice theme in the first place. Yes, that'd be in the Styles\AOStyle.xaml file, towards the bottom -- look for a collection of storyboards. I can't recall off the top of my head the particular storyboard name, but it might be LEFT or SIDEBAR/SB ... something like that. It's currently timed to fade in when the top metadata screen overlay fades out, but you can adjust that timing by editing the storyboard(s).

    FluxCRT

    Never really announced FluxCRT, but I just posted an update yesterday and really like how it came together so here goes. It's a spin on the time traveling idea of BTTF, which I had just watched again recently with my wife for the nostalgia of it. Anyways, that series and some awesome bezels by @PhillsDoodles inspired me, and I also wanted to make more use of a CRT curvature control I'd made. In line with the vibe I decided to go with text-only views, juiced up with some transitions and overlays. Use Windows Media Player for full effect.

    MinimalX

    Updated MinimalX to v5.2; primarily a bug fix.

    Updated to v1.3 -- addressed bugs and performance issues.

    No worries. I'm hopefully close to an update -- working on a few minor bugs ... but the performance issues are hopefully solved in this next update; I did find some problems there. You could make a stripped down version of the old theme leaving just the text views and would have to modify about 5-6 files with the new theme name.

    XAML Tips and Tricks

    Yes, that's how the AutopathVideoLooperFramed control (in Ao.Bigbox.Themer) works. It's easy to drop into a view. Feel free to use that control @wallmachine.

    You're welcome! There are multiple game's list views, but I suspect the one you want is TextGamesView.xaml. I'll pm you to continue this discussion.
