Just trying out the theme for the first time and loving it.  Great work!

What I was hoping to do was make a backup (alt version) of the theme and change the background image depending on the playlist.  (Preparing for theme-specific playlists in Bigbox update).  I created a copy of the whole folder, then in Styles-Nostolgia found the background image path and changed it to the new folder name, but after doing this, it still displayed the old image.  Any tips on how I could accomplish this?

Thanks again!

Thanks, R. For which view are you trying to change the background? Perhaps you could upload a screenshot?

Love the theme @eatkinola and thanks for the quick fix. IS it possible for me to change colours of certain things?  I would like to change your colour blue to the blue from criticalzones theme, i like to have @JamesBaker themes on a larger scale so im wanting to use criticalzones theme for platforms screen and your theme for games screen but would also like the matching blue. Great theme :)

Gotcha. A simple plugin control should get the job done without having to copy the theme. I'll take a crack at it.

Yes, look in Styles\Nostalgia.xaml -- you can edit the styles of most UI elements there. I think I used Aqua for the clock and vertical year placard.
