Radiance

View File

Here is an early release version of theme Radiance.

This theme is based around the Aura theme by iGarikoitz.

3.thumb.PNG.c42a6adec4f61b3156f29d878c127277.PNG

Things to note:

  • Theme works best with game music.
  • Theme works best when you have 1 boxart image per game. If you have more than 1 boxart image for a game, the box highlight may not work properly. This is because the coverflow will randomly select a boxart image to display, and the box highlight will also randomly select a boxart image to use for sizing the highlight. If they choose differently, then it will look off. There is currently no way to know which image the coverflow will select to display.
  • This theme does not work well if a system has boxart that is not uniform.
  • Custom changes on a per-platform basis need to be made. All system may not be currently covered. If you find a system that is not currently covered, please let me know and I'll look into it.

 

Have fun!

In your BigBox go to Options then keyboard or controller settings and map a key/button to "Switch View" this will allow you to be in the theme directly and change views on the fly.  This way you can see what it changes to versus changing in the settings and then backing out.

Thank you so much Retro808! That worked perfectly! Such a beautiful theme. Would you happen to know if i can remove the time clock in the upper right hand side or if i can change it to 12hr format?

Change the format I am not sure on. I took a look at the code and Fraeran is using a plugin. To delete it I do know if you go into the xaml for the view you are using, so lets say you are using view HorizontalWheel1 you would go into the them folder and in the Views folder edit the HorizontalWheel1GamesView.xaml then look for the section with "Date and Time" and delete the line below. 

<aoc:DigitalClock Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" FontFamily="{StaticResource ScoutBlack}" FontSize="50" Foreground="#1c393d" Opacity="0.6" DockPanel.Dock="Right" />

I just tested and it did remove the clock and did not break the theme.

That's awesome! It worked beautifully. Thanks again Retro808!

Sorry to bug you again, I've been playing around with this theme for the past couple of day and am absolutely in love with it. I was trying to figure out if supports Platform Videos? I tried just about every Platform View, but can never get it to work.

Additionally, how can i add a background image to the game view while scrolling horizontal (just like the video above) ?

Hi @HannesRoets. There's a possibility that this theme requires an updated plugin. I'll need to get around to doing that at some point.

It's the themer plugin. I think one of the launchbox updates introduced compatibility issues with plugin, which was resolved in a newer version of the plugin. Just haven't got around to apply the update to all my themes.

The plugin does things differently, the icons are hidden deep in the plugins folder.

Did you find a fix for this? I have the same issue. Thanks!

This theme is definitely getting long in the tooth.

It's on my list to recreate it using the COMMUNITY Theme Creator, live on one of my future Theme Streams.

So I'm using this theme, but running into an issue when I'm adding another platform, specifically the Famicom Disk System. I have the Clear Logo set for the system in Platforms in LaunchBox, and it shows that logo when I'm selected on the system using your theme in Big Box, but when I'm on the next selection over (like one to the left or one to the right, like on Nintendo Entertainment System for example), it's not showing the clear logo I've set. It's just showing the huge default normal white font with Nintendo Famicom Disk System, and then changes to the Clear Logo I've set when I select back on that platform. 

Any idea on how to fix that? @faeran

Hi @Invisible. Have you tried to refresh all your images in the image cache? It's in the BigBox options.

I haven't, but that fixed it! Thanks, I should have thought of that, haha.

Awesome theme by the way, I love the way everything looks, great job.
