RetroHumanoid Cinematics & Refried Theme

Ok..so testing is going well,and some issues were found,yet they have been fixed...I will give testers some more time to check out the updated files,and if I receive the OK from them,then I will release the theme,as well as the add-on themes,officially.

On another note,I will release a platform wheel set that matches the logos I am using in the theme,thanks to @RetroNi for his hard work,and permission on using his wheel set as the base. 

I also plan to make platform videos for each platform using the artwork from the theme to match,and they will resemble the unified video themes that are currently in circulation already.I do not have a time frame as to when I will make them,but,I can say that they will actually be easier to make then the actual theme was,and having the art already cut and cleaned should streamline the whole thing.

I have some patreon work to get done after I finish this theme,before I follow up with any more projects.

I am so happy you are going to cover the Platform Clear Logos and Create matching cinematics! that was litterally the last 2 things I could of hoped for, this will look clean and Unified with all the Media matching perfectly ❤️

Done.

Examples:

These look great, it looks good with the clear logo stayng on show.

If you do decide to remove the weather icon then you could make the date text white to give a unified look with what you've done :)

Could also then implement time and date to bottom right hand of screen to keep it all on one clean bar?

Just to be clear with anyone who prefers the wheel fading...there are four views for every platform..

1.Character Art View

2.Box/Cart/Disc View with fading wheel

3.Box/Cart/Disc View without fading wheel

4.Text Games View

So both options are intact. For systems with only carts,views 2 and 3 will not rotate the carts...for systems with only discs,views 2 and 3 will rotate the discs

Will we be able to use the view with the character art as the main menu view when choosing the system? I'm assuming that would need to be converted into a mp4 correct?

RH mentioned he is planning to make the cinematics in matching style of the game select screens :)

I bow down to you RetroHumanoid! I have been wanting a unified theme with all the bells and whistles. This is exactly what I have wanted. Can't wait to get my hands on it soon. A HUGE thanks for all your hard and amazing work!

I have been hitting refresh since Friday, and my god have you been busy!

Are you going to put the system clear logos you have used inside the parent theme folder?


This is going to be one hell of a theme 😍 keep on going with this great work
