@Cookz718 -- Those are some really good ideas. I may try both. Right now I'm going to try to get the theme out in the next couple of days. But, I love the idea of continuing to add views. And like I said, I like what you did.

appreciate it.. I had did some alterations on the Chicuelo Theme to my comfort and with the way your theme is coming out its literally exactly what i felt the Chicuelo theme was missing.. Hopefully these can give you some inspirations of the modifications i did to it (the list of games as well)

(BTW Chicuelo is not my theme)

and also for the console selection something more simplistic like this

I really like this look. One suggestion: could you make the border around the selected game thicker or brighter. or perhaps magnifying effect. it seems it will be easy to loose where the cursor is especially from far away on the tv.

Yes, this look is incredibly close to the xbox. I cant wait to see the finished product. What happened to the original Alyssa theme?

Thanks! The latest view set me back some, but it's almost done. I'm probably going to continue adding more views, but I think I'll just finish up what I have now and release it. I can add and update as time goes on. I'd like to think in the next few days I'll post it.

You know guys with as much interest as I see for such a contemporary theme, makes me wonder how in the world it took so long for someone to request it.  I think launchbox is like at least 7 years old. Anyhow I am very excited about it. Also there is another person currently trying to design a replica of Xbox one theme so feel free to contribute to him as well.

My guess is that you can blame Hyperspin for that aesthetic popularity. I guess people got really used to those selector wheels and clear logos :P

@bbweiners Just tested out the theme. Looks really nice. I did notice a small issue. On this view the total games count is cut off.

This is from one machine running 1920. I have not tested on the 4K machine yet.

I see what it is. I guess this is a limitation of the current theming options. If you have BigBox/Options/Platform Details/Show Default Emulator checked, that will cause the issue. It shouldn't but does. Maybe I can request that get fixed.

So for now if you want it to look correct you'll have to disable -- Show Default Emulator.

To expound a bit, this was the only way I could do it to include Playlists in the game count.

Thanks! I hear what you're saying about the list view. I beat myself up over how I wanted to do that for a while. I just couldn't come up with a way that I liked other than what I settled on.

I'm pumped to hear you want to create some custom images!

Also, I couldn't test this theme on a 4k display. I think the way it's written it should translate well. But please let me know if there are issues.
