Ah that's the infamous inception effect. I love viking's videos which is why I made a theme around them. When using Nostalgia, I recommend using a set of platform videos that are not vikings. That way you can see his backgrounds but have your own platform and game images playing in the TV, handheld, arcade, etc.

First of all, thanks for the best Bigbox theme ever made!!!
I really love this so hard and muchh <3<3<3

Now. I have some questions:
1-When I mark a game as broken, why dont show an broken icon?
2-In my game list view, the logo of the game show on top and botton. Is there a way to change it?
image.thumb.png.15604c55934ebe607c05cc5b00243d60.png...Because in plataform list, you can see the plataform logo on top and some other logo on botton and i want to see game list like that.image.thumb.png.e1cff0303189f91e67dcb3404f92344e.png

And, in the ARCADE screenshot, you can see the text: Calificaciones de Estrellas in spanish, the translation is a bit large and dont need to be like that. Only with "Calificaciones" is enough! Is there a way to change it?

Sorry about my bad english :(

You can edit a line in Views\Styles\Nostalgia.xaml to add the broken icon:

<Style x:Key="NostMetadataIcons_GAME" TargetType="aop:GameMetadataIcons" BasedOn="{StaticResource NostMetadataIcons}">
    <Setter Property="FieldOrder" Value="GameGenre,GamePlayMode,GameAgeRating,GameStarRating,GameBroken" />
</Style>

Possible values for fields include:

            GameBroken,            // toggle: broken or not
            GameCompleted,         // toggle: completed or not
            GameController,        // custom field AoController

Yes, the image displayed on the bottom is the main game image you selected for the game's platform. To change this, go into this view for a particular platform then press the hotkey you setup to cycle through these images, e.g., clear logo, box front, etc. You can assign a hotkey in the BB settings menu for keyboard mapping, i.e., the mapping for "Switch Image Type" (in English).

I don't speak Spanish and did the translations myself using Google. Not ideal, and I'd appreciate if you'd take a look at the translations (hidden below) and provide suggestions.

P.s. I'll have to include these changes in the next release of the theme, as these translations are bundled in the Ao.Bigbox.Themer plugin.

Explanation

Spoiler

1- There is a difference between english and spanish in the use of capital letters for titles, in spanish you should only use one at the beginning of the title and in proper nouns.

2- "Calificaciones" is technically correct, but in this context it is more correct to use "puntuación" and/or the plural form "puntuaciones".

3- UCP is also correct as the acronym used in spanish for "Unidad Central de Procesamiento". But most people use the english one (CPU).

 

4- I'm not sure if there is a word in spanish for "media" in this context. "Medios de comunicación" is used to refer to radio,television,press,etcetera as a whole.  
 

5- "Lista de Reproducción" sounds weird to me... i understand "Lista de reproducción" as a set of music tracks, but i wasn't sure so i didn't change it.

6- You can translate quit as "salir", "cerrar" or "abandonar". "Dejar" is to leave.

7- The physical object with buttons is "mando" in spanish, "controlador" is more common as the translation for driver.

8- "Prensa" is used for newspappers and/or magazines. The spanish verbs for press are "pulsar" or "presionar".

9- Other changes are "Sonar" (verb) for "Sonido" (noun), "Reinicializar" (incorrect) for "Reiniciar" (correct) and "Terminado" (singular) for "Terminados" (plural).

Yes, its works but every time i change the platform or restart BigBox, the game list show the clear logo on both places. Is there a way to only show the 3dBox or whatever i choose for any game?

Thanks for the screenshot -- looks correct. I'll do some digging and if a fix is needed include it with the next theme update.

Hmm, I'm surprised it's not remembering your setting. Is there perhaps another BB setting keeping it from remembering your image choice for a particular platform. Is the image choice you are making remembered when using other themes?

Guys, i dont know why but after the last Launchbox/Bigbox update, my nostalgia works so bad.
Wheels, videos and changes beetween platform or games take so long, and in some cases all Bigbox crash!

I really want to make a video just to show how bad my system run now with Nostalgia.
I tryed others Themes and everyone work clean, fast and perfect, but only Nostalgia works bad.

Thats sad because i only like nostalgia T.T

I tryed a fresh install of everything and now in my list i only gave MAME with 3000 games and AAE with only 37 games.
But nothing works...

Honestly haven't tested Nostalgia in a while. A few months ago, some memory leaks were brought to my attention, and I've slowly been isolating those leaks. It's taking a long time because I have to let a theme run in attract mode for days on end. I've identified 3 of 4 (I think there are four total) leaks, and once I plug them I'll double back and take a look at Nostalgia and my other themes.

Just downloaded a fresh version and tested. It is working. I did notice from platform to platform there was some occasional lag, but no crashes like @Edulnmigrante mentioned.

UPDATED to v1.9 -- see changelog on download page for details

First off, I love this theme! I love the minimal look and the old devices an peripherals. 
But right now, I'm ready to start pulling out my hair 🤯

I've been using the Nostalgia theme on my emulation PC for quite a while without any problems. The platform select screen loads in PNG's with cutouts for the platform's monitor and there random game video's are loaded in the way it's supposed to.

Recently I've moved my complete emulation PC into an Arcade1Up cabinet with a 4:3 ratio screen. At first the theme filled out the screen fine, but the images were squeezed to fit the new ratio. Then I tried to update the theme with the 4:3 video's but that didn't work out. I got the 'inception' thingy going on (I've seen more people having this problem).

So I updated the theme to the newly released 1.9 version and now it won't fill out the 4:3 screen anymore, it's fixed to 16:9 so now it looks kind of tiny with the black bars top and bottom. Updating the vids with the 4:3 set still gives the 'inception' view.

So basically my questions are:
Is it even possible to force the 1.9 theme to 4:3 ratio?
Is it possible for the theme to prioritize the Nostalgia 4:3 video's for platform views, instead of the default png's?

 

I really hope someone can point me in the right direction since these are literally the last things to completely finishing my build and I've lost so many hours fiddling around with it already.

Glad you like the theme, @Guidope. It's designed for 16:9 screens and won't look as intended at 4:3. However, you could allow it to stretch and fill a 4:3 screen. Look in the ThemeSettings.xml in the root of the theme's folder. There should be a tag called Force16x9... set to true -- set this instead to false, and it should then allow stretching to 4:3.

    <Force16X9AspectRatio>true</Force16X9AspectRatio>
    ...change to false

The "inception" look will always happen if you use viking's videos, as I used his videos to make the backgrounds with screen cutouts. While Nostalgia is one of my favorite themes, not that I'm biased :), you might want to look into a 4x3 theme for your cabinet. There are a few out there. Another theme I created called Refaktor should work well for either 4x3 or 16x9.
