Calling All Media and Theme Creators!

Recommended Posts

I've added a "Condensed" version to this upcoming theme as well, since I see a lot of users prefer little spacing between items on the sidebar. The "Condensed" version only affects the spacing on the sidebar and on the list view. Now the download will come with both the "Normal" version and the "Condensed" version. This thing is ready to go as soon as I get access to a certain opacity binding that I requested. 

I also saw some comments on @ETAPRIME's 8.6 video asking about the artwork in the theme. The theme functions just like the default theme, you choose what artwork you want displayed with the "Image Group" drop-down in the title bar. I just have custom square fan-art that I've made for my entire collection that I like to use (which is also why a lot of it is different from what's scraped and not available from the LaunchBox database).

Here's some shots of both versions:

Normal Version:

@Grila Wooo! I will get you a beta today with that feature. I just sent out an email with a big image of the theme so people are gonna want it here soon. ;)

The one thing I would say though is that if there's any way for you to make it work with the official release, that would be appreciated (even without the option to fade the backgrounds). Otherwise, I think it will be a big source of confusion.

It works, you just can't lower the opacity of the image background. Other than that, it's fully functional.

In that case, I'll package this thing up right now and post it with a note describing that issue.

Killer. I have the code ready for that new property; I just have to package up the beta. So that is coming soon as well. I can't wait to play with that theme! :)

Hello Guys! I would love to work on the big box custom theme in the past I had to work with the format swf on hyperspin and I had made some really nice spot like theme default gamecube fully animated.

 

on which post should I go to learn to learn a little basics, to tell the truth the language barrier does not help me a little trouble to find my forum. thank you guys!

Very cool @Padou; the Big Box custom theme tutorials on YouTube are a good place to start. There's also the LaunchBox\Themes\Documentation.pdf document which should help. I'm sorry about the language barrier though; I don't really have a solution for that for the moment.

Thanks Jason, I'll go and see That!It can not be more complicated than hyper spin looking forward to seeing what we can do. I reassure you it's the same on the french forums :) Fortunately the translators today is rather complete to succeed in this understanding :)

I wanted to update everyone here to let folks know that we're again in need of some new media. I just added some playlist auto-generation options to go along with the new nested options:

image.thumb.png.d350847176bdfadc184db7fe2a06524d.pngThis means that in LB/BB 9.0, users will be able to easily generate child wheels for each of their platforms, based on genres, play modes, regions, developers, and publishers. It's a bit of an impossible mission to attempt to create clear logos for all developers and publishers, but eventually I think we should be able to fill in the gaps for genres, play modes, and regions at least (there's really only a handful for each).

I'd recommend playing around with the latest beta so you can wrap your head around how all this stuff works, but it basically allows you to do stuff that's similar to what we did for Arcade for all platforms. We could certainly use videos for them as well, but that gets a lot more complicated because people may want platform-specific videos for each genre in their collection, for example, so that certainly opens up a whole new can of worms (imagine having a separate video for NES Platformers, NES Shooters, Genesis Fighters, etc.).

Regardless, here's a list of clear logos that we can use to fill in the gaps:

  • All Games
  • Favorites
  • Genres
  • Play Modes
  • Regions
  • Developers
  • Publishers
     
  • Action
  • Adventure
  • Casino
  • Construction and Management Simulation
  • Education
  • Fighting
  • Horror
  • Life Simulation
  • Music
  • Party
  • Quiz
  • Role-Playing
  • Sandbox
  • Stealth
  • Strategy
  • Vehicle Simulation
     
  • Cooperative
  • Multiplayer
  • Single Player
     
  • Europe
  • Japan
  • North America

Thanks all!
