StationEmulation Theme

Recommended Posts

@AeronNL : Thx !!! ^_^

OK for the request. I will look at the source code and see if I can adapt it to this theme.

The cut platform name, it must come from the fact that you are in 4x3. The remaining space being shorter.
To change it, it's easy:

  • in  <//LaunchBox / Themes / StationEmulation / Views />  , open : "TextGamesView.xaml".
  • Find these lines:
<!--PLATFORM TEXT NAME - TOP LEFT-->
            <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=SelectedGame.Platform}" Panel.ZIndex="101" Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="0" Grid.ColumnSpan="11" Grid.RowSpan="3" Foreground="#7c7e80" FontFamily="Segoe UI Light" FontSize="60" TextTrimming="WordEllipsis" Typography.Capitals="AllSmallCaps" TextWrapping="Wrap" VerticalAlignment="Center" TextAlignment="Left" LineStackingStrategy="BlockLineHeight" LineHeight="62"/>
  • And change this value :   Grid.ColumnSpan="11"
  • into this value :   Grid.ColumnSpan="18"
  • The higher the value, the more space there is for the title. 19 is the maximum not to cover the ClearLogo.

Thanks so much for the update, this theme is perfect for my setup. The last thing I was wondering is if it would be possible to display the number of games below the platform logos along with the year, similar to how emulationstation displays "100 Available Games" under the system name.

Thanks a lot Viking!

ik really appreciate it, will have a look at it tonight. 

How about the size for the game description text?

which line should I edit for that?

would be great if you are able to implement the fading of the menu bar. 

Nevertheless this is my favorite theme already!

Excellent work brother! One question though... Is there any way to use each game video as fullscreen background AND it be blurred like the background wallpaper? I'm talking for system and games. I tried this with hyperspin and eventually gave up

@viking,

any word on this by chance? I'm curious to know if this can be added too.

Hi, i really like that theme, but i have the problem, that games and playlists without a clearlogo show white text on white ground (the white horizontal bar) - i can barely read anything at daylight when this happens.

Is there a way to fix this, like changing the text colour, or adding an black border/shadows around the text?

@johnugamer @alexis524 : I have not time to do this now. But it's don't seems difficult to do. =)

@moppedz : Unfortunately, I dont think that is possible. In any case, I did not find where to change that value. The easiest way is to create or use a ClearLogo for these playlist.

@Cauptain :

To delete the date:

  • Find the good platform view file in : LaunchBox\Themes\StationEmulation\Views
  • In this file, find and delete these lines 
  • <!--"DATE" IN SMALL LINE-->
                <Viewbox StretchDirection="DownOnly" Stretch="Uniform" Grid.Row="2">
                    <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=SelectedPlatform.ReleaseDate, StringFormat=yyyy}" Foreground="#393a3b" FontFamily="Segoe UI Semilight" FontSize="40" TextAlignment="Center" Opacity="0.9"/>
                </Viewbox>

     Save the file

To delete the grey line , also remove :

<Border Grid.Row="2">
                <Border.Background>
                    <SolidColorBrush Color="#c8c8c8" Opacity="0.9" />
                </Border.Background>
            </Border>

How do I get two images side by side like in this example on the right?

I'd love to have a box cover and screenshot - gameplay - thanks.

You have to change the view within that theme. You can do this in options - keyboard mappings, or options - controller, as shown below and I've used the 'tab' key to accomplish this

That's great - I have changed the view and can now see two images per game. How do I change those two images to Box Cover and Screenshot - Gameplay? Right now it's just showing me two screenshots, thanks!

It depends on which images you want, but make sure you have your corresponding images in the right folders. For example, screenshots would be in "launchbox\Images\Atari 2600\Screenshot - Gameplay" and boxart would be in "launchbox\Images\Atari 2600\Box - Front" for Atari 2600. To switch the type of images being shown (on the fly), you'll have to assign a keyboard or controller mapping, just as you did with the view. Again, you'll see this in the options screen, under "Keyboard Mappings" and "Controller" as shown below
