I've got the most recent version of BigBox/Unified and it's not displaying the background images on platform view.  I've checked the settings listed in the install instructions and verified that the backgrounds have a matching name with the platform.

The issue isn't present in other themes, only Unified.  Is there any log files which might tell me what's going on?  Rest of the theme works fine, definitely my favourite!

Those are not images they are videos, you can download them from within Launchbox under Tools/Download platform/Playlist videos.

Argh!  That's the one.  Seems so obvious now, cheers :)

Is it possible for games with theme videos to have the video be played full-screen with nothing else?

For example, the normal Unified theme is shown for games without a theme video; the boxart, bordered video, and info is all there. However, when a game has a theme video in /Videos/whatever system/Theme, that video plays full-screen while excluding all of the other info and images.

Unfortunately that's not possible at the moment.

I really like this theme as it was my deciding factor in purchasing a BigBox license.  Is there anyway to turn off the weather information at the top right hand side of the screen?

@Rombo Deadfish Just requoting this that @CriticalCid posted a few pages back in order to remove the weather and time information from the Unified\Themes\Views folder. Just open up the Views xaml in notepad and remove the posted above info and be sure to make a backup first

If the platform is already named Megadrive in launchchbox then you may have to rename some images to match it. Go to Launchbox/Themes/Unified/Images/Theme there are 4 folders in here for the different image types the theme uses, make sure they match exactly how you have megadrive named. For me i have it called "Sega Mega Drive" in Launchbox so had to rename those 4 image types to match that.

@CriticalCid I know you updated the latest version to incorporate @Jason Carr's changes to stretch 4:3 videos to 16:9, but I find the aspect ratio being stretched looks off to me. Also, I can no longer see the platform specific backgrounds as the videos now cover the entire screen and makes them redundant. This is more a question for Jason, but could a toggle be added to the Big Box options to allow the end user to choose if they want to stretch 4:3 aspect videos to fullscreen or not?

It's so theme-specific that I don't really think that would be a good idea, though we could add it to the theme settings XML at some point.

Quick question,

Is there a way to keep the wheels visible longer before they fade out? I'd like to extend the time a bit.

@CriticalCid, will you be implementing some of Jason's work into this one from the redux?

Cid is taking a much-needed break from theme development for the moment. There wouldn't be much sense in making Unified exactly like Unified Redux, since they're both available anyways. What features/changes did you want? I assume it's because you want to cherry-pick from the changes?

I just thought it would be nice to have them under the same theme to tidy things up, no disrespect to anyone. As in, one with all features of both - instead of 2 seperate Themes

Enjoy your break Cid (Y)
