    I tried to open it in the latest CTC tool, but no luck. Maybe the project files are too old for the current version of the CTC tool?
    I was able to open and edit some other authors CTC files, though they were newer themes.

    Ok, I knew this time would come. We might finally need to put the theme to rest and move on.

    When I go into the game window, the box art shows up in the middle frame, and the video is playing in the right frame. If I choose "view manual", then back out of it, the box art and video no longer show up in the middle and right frames... they are just blank. Is this a limitation of the community themer?

    My other themes work differently ... when I back out of the Manual, the box art and video screens show up as expected, but the video is paused.

    Yeah I know, sorry about that. The animation configurations are wrong. At the time I didn't know how to handle the animations in that view, so I made mistakes. Unfortunately I'm not doing any updates to my older themes. You could try to fix it yourself with the files provided for the Community Theme Creator tool.

    I haven't tried this theme yet, but this screenshot looks great!!

    Would it be possible to get a version similar to "Wall View 2" in POC? In the wall grid, it displays the screenshot overlaid with the clear logo, rather than the box art:

    image.thumb.png.c52a8de408bd0263f5656cafdded0ebb.png

    In the case of this theme, you could probably just swap the positions of the box art and screenshot (screenshot in the grid, box art at the bottom right) and add the clear logo on top of the screenshot (maybe as an option that people could turn off if they didn't like it, for example if they're using the title screen screenshots rather than gameplay screenshots).

    @Juketsu would you consider adding these wall views to the theme? The original post does say "Wall views are coming later" :)

    When the new Community Creator Tool is published, I will do the wall views and tweak the others too. Until then you will just have to manage without or use POC.

    Thank you for this awesome theme @Juketsu!  I really enjoy the darkness of the theme and how clean it looks.  I've been obsessed with the wall view from @faeran's "The POC" theme, so I attempted to port that view into here.  Let me know what you think! 

    I am happy to share the files with anyone who is interested after I get permission from both authors. I do not want to take any credit for their hard work.

    Nice job! Thanks for sharing this and glad you like the theme.

    Just added a review. Awesome theme! One tiny thing I noticed is that the Capcom playlists logo is cut off a bit on the edges. I gave you these logos so that may have been my bad. Anyway, I attached those capcom logos without the edges cut. Also, yes I will be releasing my logos soon as it's own separate download on the forums here. I'm still wrapping up and double checking them.

    Capcom Logos.zip 1010.28 kB · 2 downloads

    Marvellous Dan! Just like I imagined this to work. I can make the layouts, and others can contribute by making device images, fan art and logos (Not so keen on those myself.)

    Thank you for this beautiful theme @thimolor !!
    The idea of having a theme with images pack is fantastic!
    You just need to be careful with their quality and resolution.

    Could you create logos and banners for Playlists, Collections and Favorites?

    Thanks! The idea was to make a theme where you could use the included image sets, or just download/make one yourself. There should be no need for me to make image packs anymore and frankly, I don't want to do those, because I dont' need them myself :) The device images are quite small in size but this was for performance reasons. I tried bigger ones, but noticed slowdowns while scrolling through platforms. I wanted this theme to work on lower spec machines also.

    There should be lot's of different logo and device images made by other community members, just download those.

    Wow probably the best theme available, really well done. The only thing not working for me for some reason is i have no details of the games? I might reinstall everything and see what happens but really great thanks

    Thanks. Can you send me a screenshot. I want to eliminate all the bugs as soon as possible. You can also try to compile the theme yourself if the problem does not go away: Pulse Community Theme Creator Files - Big Box Custom Themes - LaunchBox Community Forums (launchbox-app.com) 

  1. Hi, I'm having performance issue with my new theme that I'm building. It happens in game wheel view. The view has game video, box art and screenshot. At first the wheel works fine, but after I have scrolled through dozens of games the theme is slowing down. There is a huge lag when trying to navigate. This problem does not occur in BigBox default theme. When I close bigbox and start it again, the theme works fine, until I have scrolled through multiple games again. Could there be a memory leak or something? Don't know why it would slow downotherwise.

    Using the latest build from LaunchBox and Community Theme Creator.

    Thank you much appreciated. As far as a device image probably an arcade cab or something since that's what it emulates.

    How about this one?TeknoParrot.thumb.jpg.33412bdb24344cf8c5949d18a03abca1.jpg

    Hi there, awesome theme. I was wondering if any could make just a banner for Teknoparrot. Thanks.

    Hard to make a nice banner without device images. I made a quick and dirty version for you with just the logo in it.

    I swear I went through all the views in BB and didn't see one... but I'll go check again. Off the top of your head, would that view work for a custom playlist? I have an auto-populating Favorites list that I want to use this view on.  

    Yes, it should work fine.

    Hi again. I took a look at the theme and there already is a vertical view with clear logos. Just take a look at the screenshots:

    Assign hotkey for the view change, so it's easier to browse through the different views.

    I tried using the tool but nothing I've tried so far can get it to run right. I've tried unblocking the zip file, running it as admin, etc. Still can't get past the error it throws when you try to run it.

    I took a look at it, but it looks like you're using covers/boxes for the game art too, and not clear logos. So I'd still need to tweak your theme as well, right?

    Here's the part in AllNightLong's WheelGamesView.xaml that I think is what I need to edit:

    If this looks right, would I just change ImageType="Boxes" to ImageType="Clear Logos", to start with?

     

    I can make you a version of the All Night Long theme that uses the clear logos. Wait just a moment.

    Would it be possible to request a new View, based on this existing one (see attached screenshot), but instead of using the poster art, use Clear Logos? I'd also like to use this view with a custom playlist (Favorites only). I'm happy to make the code-level change myself, I'm just not sure where to look. Any guidance is appreciated.

    Hi there, use this:

    And this:

     

    Have you tried my new theme? It's has a lot in common with All Night Long. There are also the Community Theme Creator Files for tweaking.

    I found out what the problem was. The image was named "Nintendo Game Boy Advanced" and not "Nintendo Game Boy Advance". Thanks for setting me on the right path!

    hmm, try to make a dummy image with the same name, if it shows up, then the original image file is messed.

    Hi there, me again. I'm missing the background to Gameboy Advance in BigBox. But looking at the image folder, I see it's there. How do I associate that background with the folder? It's labeled "Nintendo Gameboy Advance" so I don't know why it's not auto-grabbing the background. Thanks to you!

    Is your platform named Nintendo Gameboy Advance? The image file name should be exactly the same. You could rename it again to be sure. Then remember to refresh the platform images from BigBox options.

    Great job!! @thimolor

    I simply love this theme. The minimalist aspect of it, the colors, it's so clean. Love it!

    Is it possible for you to add some fields to the below view please?? I really wished it showed the game clear logo and also the game info like this.

    Amazing work! 5 stars

    Thanks! Sorry, but I will not add those in there :) But don't worry, I will publish the Theme Creator Tool Files, so everyone can make the changes they want. I just need  to clean the files first, so it's easier to make changes.

    I created a Windows Platform Categories image and put it in \LaunchBox\Themes\AllNightLong\Images\Platform Categories\Device, but it still used the one from \LaunchBox\Themes\AllNightLong\Images\Platforms\Device.

    Any way to make it use the 'Platform Categories' one so it matches the alignment the others?

    I don't want to replace the one in 'Platforms' because it messes up the aligment of that view.

    I don't think there is a way. Maybe someone wiser can prove me wrong.

    Thx for the reply, the Mode is working fine, my bad. Future Pinball I believe was 2008. Not sure where the theme is getting data from though. Not tinkered with CTC, but maybe it's time to give it a try. Again, thank you

    I really think the missing year is not related to the theme, but the metadata of the platform. You should try to edit the Future Pinball data from the "Manage Platforms" settings located in tools.
