  1. Hi @Invisible. Have you tried to refresh all your images in the image cache? It's in the BigBox options.
  2. Unfortunately, it's just the way the RotationAmount was implemented.
  3. Thanks @paupular. 1. I mostly use the standard Big Box Cinematix theme videos that you can download from LaunchBox. 2. Those are used for platformview2 and platformwheel3. you can set a keyboard/controller key to cycle through the different views and pick the one that you like.
  4. Just for your peace of mind. I tested it already, and it works.
  5. Hi @Android16. I went through your code and found that you were missing a property in your coverFlow. Everything else was fine. CoverFactory="{Binding CoverFactory}" <coverFlow:FlowControl x:Name="FlowControl" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Column="0" CoverFactory="{Binding CoverFactory}" CustomImageType="Steam Banner" CurveAmount="4.5" CameraZPosition="3.0" VisibleCount="14" PageSize="6" Spacing="1.0" ItemZPosition="1.0" SelectedItemZPosition="2.0" /> You should be good to go once you add that back.
  6. Thanks @Newlander. For Game banners, you can create your own, based on the games you have in your library, by following the video in the description. For Platform banners, I would recommend checking out this thread:
  7. Interesting. Thanks for pointing that out. Found the issue. The prioritizedpathselector control seems to have some quirkiness to it. I have it fixed for the next release.
  8. Thanks @Bullfrog for your feedback. Much appreciated. Glad you are enjoying the updated theme. At the moment, the version of the theme on both the forum and the theme manager are the same. However, the theme manager will always take priority. So if you download a theme from the forum, the manager will always flag you to update it in the theme manager, even if it is the same copy (or older copy). And delaying the front box is something that can be considered. I know a lot of people have their own opinions on that subject. What's good is that I also released the project files, as part of the Theme Stream series. So you can download the files, load them up in the COMMUNITY Theme Creator and make the edits yourself.
  9. Thanks @Xirvet. That should be simple enough to add back into this new version. I'll add it to the next update.
  10. Hi @lovewiibrew. At this point, RetroFresh project files for the COMMUNITY Theme Creator has been released to the public, so it should be easy enough for you to load them into the creator and make the changes that you want in the theme.
  11. So glad you are enjoying. Can't wait to see what you come up with!
  12. Thanks Fry. For sure there is. Right click the vertical wheel view's Default text and choose copy. Do the same thing to paste.
  13. Sure. Normally in XAML you can wrap things inside of other things. An example would be having an image, inside of a border, that's inside of a grid. You could potentially place many images inside of the grid, like this: <Grid> <Border> <Image/> </Border> <Border> <Image/> </Border> <Border> <Image/> </Border> </Grid> The benefit of something like this is that I can animate the Grid, and it will animate all of the elements inside of the grid. The COMMUNITY Theme Creator doesn't currently work this way. Each Element would be considered separate from each other. So, in the above example, I would have to create 3 animations on each image to achieve the same result. The goal of the parenting update is to solve issues like this (along with many others), allowing us to place elements inside of other elements. Hopefully that makes sense.
  14. I've put it on the list However, It's probably best to delay this one until the parenting update to the theme creator.
  15. Version 1.0.0


    Retrotastic was built during a Theme Stream broadcast. If you are interested in creating themes, follow me on Twitch, or watch the videos later on YouTube. A Catalog of past Theme Streams can be found on the forums here: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/54760-retro-faerans-theme-stream-big-box-theme-creation/ This theme only works on version 10.15 and above due to its reliance on some new bindings! Retrotastic I recreated my Retrotastic theme in the theme creator. This was an ambitious project, but one that was well worth it. It still has all the fun of the original theme, with over 150 platform specific backgrounds and a plethora of game specific backgrounds and graphics to play around with. This brings the theme up to a new, modern standard that includes many performance benefits. I also managed to tweak the views here and there to make the theme snappier. Please enjoy this new version, along with the COMMUNITY Theme Creator project files for you to play around with and create your own version of my theme.
