LBPlex

View File

LBPlex is a theme that mimics Plex Media Server's website interface. Two versions are included in the package: LBPlex - which has the default item spacing on the sidebar and list view, and LBPlex Condensed - which has much tighter item spacing on the sidebar and list view. I have also replaced the volume "knob" with a regular slider.

NOTES:

  • All the colors in this theme are hard-coded with the exception of the Foreground (text) color in the LaunchBox Options\Legacy\Theme\Colors menu.
  • The Background Opacity slider in the LaunchBox Options\Visuals\Boxes menu has no effect right now. A fix is in-coming so this will work at a later date. Update: If you run the latest LaunchBox Beta (8.7-beta-1 or above) this is fixed.
  • The Fade Background slider in LaunchBox Options\Images\Default Background will adjust the brightness of the theme background image.

Enjoy :)

@Grila I already much prefer this theme to the default one that I built, so much appreciated. I don't think even I can go back to the default theme at this point.

Unfortunately I'm noticing though that the BackgroundOpacity property is now affecting the entire boxes and not just the backgrounds; I guess we should have seen that coming. Hit me up and we can brainstorm a solution.

The only other minor gripe I have is that there's no way to access the main menu, so there's no way to access the Help menu, which is relatively important. Or am I just missing it?

The newest beta, 8.7-beta-1, fixes the in-ability to decrease the image background opacity.

I had an error on the placement of said opacity and wasn't able to test until I just upgraded. Nonetheless, the file is now updated to version 1.1 to fix my mistake. Please update your files.

Thank you sir. And you are correct, I forgot to put the main menu in there. I was working on replacing the hamburger icon with another and must have never came back to it. I will certainly get this back into the theme!

Yep, unzip the file and move the two directories (LBPlex and LBPlex Condensed) to your LaunchBox\LBThemes folder.

One thing I've noticed to keep in mind: the Background Fade option will adjust how dark or light the background is for you. I love that. :)

Ahh yes, I forgot to mention that in the file notes :)

Edit: Added that little tidbit of info to the file notes

I simply can't believe how beautiful and on-point it is. Matches PLEX exactly! keep it up Grilla!

Is it possible to add bottom margins to the scroll bar (to match the top)? :)

A little update and I think this thing is pretty well polished off now. On to my next project...

v1.3

  • The background image was re-named and chromatically adjusted a bit, you may need to adjust the brightness to suit your needs with the Fade Background slider in LaunchBox Options\Images\Default Background
  • Got rid of some unneeded images that I left in there from the initial development
  • Rounded the scrollbars (@spektor56)
  • Added margins to scrollbars (@Kevin_Flynn)

@Grila I am getting a weird issue that I noticed today. When I click on Consoles on my platform category menu it blurs the rest of the platform names out a bit and kinda changes the font. Every other platform or platform category I click on the text and font is normal. I have tried changing opacity as well but did not make a difference. Here is 2 images and the first one shows blurred and 2nd one shows normal text. Any opinion on what might be causing this?
