Minimal-EVO is a text view-based theme deriving from Minimal-AO. It retains the skinning feature of AO while getting back the the roots of MinimalHD created by @Grila. It works best if you have a good set of platform and game videos, but it also works well with images from which it will create a slideshow (if there are no videos). The theme will look for a video whenever possible, e.g., it will loop through all videos in a series when on the View Series page in BB. Minimal-EVO also features an overlay with platform or game metadata, and a set of icons to represent genre, etc. The file Ao.Bigbox.Themer.vXX.dll.config can be tweaked based on how you name your categories, platforms, genres, etc. Due to its reliance on certain plugin features, the current version of this theme requires LB version 8+. For customization, I'll defer for now to the instructions bundled with Minimal-AO, as the customization is very similar.

NOTE: Unblocking the ZIP file will also unblock the DLLs (e.g., Ao.Bigbox.Themer.dll and others) contained therein, giving your computer permission to run these DLLs. This is an issue with all plugins you might download from this forum. It's a Windows security feature. You basically have to vouch for a file before Windows will use it. I liken it to how a MS office document you download from an email runs in Protected Mode until you unblock it for printing, editing, etc. Below is the error you'll see if you don't unblock the file, as well as a screenshot of the solution.

Was gonna ask if you could add Weather and Time to Minimal AO as it is the perfect theme except for not seeing the time, will this new theme have that or is an update to Minimal AO for time possible as I love the silver color and being able to have a video as my background rather than a picture

The new theme will include the time, and I can probably include the weather too. It looks a little different than Minimal-AO and does not contain quite so many views, but it retains much of the customization including bg images and vids.
