Holly

View File

This is a theme that I've been hacking away at for a while.

It has 4 views -- A fullscreen video view with and without scanlines and a widescreen view with and without scanlines.

I included all the playlist logos that I created.

I was inspired by the Chicuelo theme.

Just exact the folder "Holly" into your themes directory and install the font.

Can i suggest some modifications? i think i'll make this my next standard theme :D

For example, i don't use videos for platform, so i modified PlatformWheel1FiltersView.xaml to remove them. It would be nice if you make a PlatformWheel2 "no video" view, only horizontal wheel with clear logos.

Also, for GameView it would be nice if there is a clear logo of previous and next game. Something like this:Cattura.thumb.PNG.e7623f4a1927e15491c2c66aa746e280.PNGit makes more "wheel sense".

 

edit 1: also, i absolutely love the background for platform view. What about to make it a background video, with the same image that it moves veeery slow?

@Sath -- Right now I pretty much have everything updated and just need to put it all together. I like your platform background ideas and might do those in future versions. I'm not a big fan of the "wheel." So when I make themes I try to get away from that, to a certain extent.

Hi,

I love this theme too. Is it possible, in an easy way, to show a screenshot of the game for 3 seconds, and then the video, in order to make the scrolling between games much smoother because it doesn't have to load every video if you scroll fast between games ?

Thanks Adu. It's currently not possible to do what you asked. You can hide the video for three seconds and show a screenshot, but the video still loads and plays. So, that kind of defeats the purpose of what you're asking. I actually wanted to do the same thing on another of my themes.

I decided to update this theme. I'm adding two new platform views, three new game views and a wall view, the same one I use in my Alyssa theme. I am also going to update the text games view.
