    CoverBox

    A bunch of the Sega themes have been updated to include all the new features, including centered game lists, scan lines, splash pages, etc. Each theme will also come in 2 versions. The first versions include the game list, game box and cart/disc animations, while the second versions keep the game list in the forefront for use with game options. Affected themes include: CoverBox - 32X (version 1.1) CoverBox - Dreamcast (version 1.1) CoverBox - Genesis Red (version 1.1) CoverBox - Mega Drive Blue (version 1.2) CoverBox - Sega CD (version 1.2) CoverBox - Sega Saturn (version 1.2) This update also includes a new theme: CoverBox - Game Gear. Enjoy!

    CoverBox

    Yes, that is the way it was designed. As it is supposed to represent an N64 Game cover.

    Today, I updated the Master System, GameBoy, GameBoy Color, and GameBoy Advance to include some of the new enhancements, like centered lists, scan lines and splash pages. More updates and new systems to come.

    CoverBox

    Thanks @harryoke. I'm still around though. I actually started altering some stuff with this recently. I'll be finishing updating the older themes, make some alternate views, and add a few more in the process. Watch this space.

    Retrotastic

    I just tested it with the copy I have and I can't seem to find the issue. I also downloaded the copy from the download page, and was unable to find the issue with any of the views as well. Do you think you could have an outdated file somewhere?

    Hi @Jake612. Try: LaunchBox\Images\Platforms\{platform}\Fanart\  Where {platform} is the name of a specific platform. example for NES: LaunchBox\Images\Platform\Nintendo Entertainment System\Fanart\Nintendo-Entertainment-System.jpg

    Retrotastic

    Awesome @Scratcher! I just updated Retrotastic. Made a couple fixes and added a 4th view that removes the box and cart/disc. I've also added an alternate version of the theme called Retrotastic Quick that makes the appearance of the theme elements much quicker. Let me know if anyone finds any issues with them and I'll fix them up.

    Retrotastic

    Sorry guys, just came back from vacation and saw all of this. Before I released Retrotastic, I actually made a version similar to this, but just never released it. Maybe I can get to packaging this together at some point to release it as an alternative version. This theme uses @eatkinola's plugin to display video. Maybe he can comment on what may be going on. I spent the morning trying to duplicate this and haven't been able to. Which versions of Windows do you guys use? Unfortunately, this is actually not quite a bug. Game specific backgrounds only overlay on top of the platform/playlist background, and doesn't replace it. This is written in the documentation where it states: "The background will overlay on top of the platform background (not replace it). When creating these backgrounds, make sure you keep in mind of where theme elements are positioned"

    You will also want to delete it from the theme's cache, which is located here: LaunchBox\Themes\Retrotastic\Plugins\Ao.Bigbox.Themer.v3_8\LaunchboxImageCache

    Ok, I figured this out for you, but it required a plugin for it to work. Here's how you can install it: Download this plugin, developed by Eatkinola. Ao.Bigbox.Themer.v3_8.dll Make sure to unblock the pulgin, you can find instructions for that here: Place the file in the RetroFresh plugins folder: LaunchBox\Themes\RetroFresh\Plugins Now, Download the TextGamesView.xaml file, and place it in the following folder (be sure to overwrite): LaunchBox\Themes\RetroFresh\Views TextGamesView.xaml
