Use different images in Pause Screen

Recommended Posts

I created platform device images that show the platform co ntroller and the corresponding buttons for my cab in which I incorporated into my main theme.1357377430_NintendoEntertainmentSystemController_proc.thumb.jpg.1b42af03353d2fd23ddb7aee13806c56.jpg1719522895_platformdevice.thumb.jpg.20d5af1a98f4faf802e634d4728b10b0.jpgI would like to be able to add that image to the pause screen which is (I'm pretty positive)  

<Image Source="{Binding Path=SelectedPlatform.DeviceImagePath}" />

I tried adding that in and it doesn't work.

<Image Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" Source="{Binding SelectedPlatform.DeviceImagePath}" VerticalAlignment="Center"
                HorizontalAlignment="Center" RenderOptions.BitmapScalingMode="HighQuality">
         <DropShadowEffect BlurRadius="10" Direction="-90" RenderingBias="Quality" ShadowDepth="1" />

My guess is that once the game is loaded, the platform becomes irrelevant so is not stored.  Hopefully I'm wrong and just messed up the code.

As a workaround I know I can copy that image to all the game-names.png and put them into an "Arcade - Controls Information" folder for the given platform and just use SelectedGame.ArcadeControlsInformationImagePath.  This doesn't solve the issue of per-game controls for consoles which I agree would be an extreme undertaking and is not important to me.  It would be nice to be able to use the 1 image rather than creating a mess of duplicates.

Anyone have any thoughts?  Hopefully simply something I overlooked or missed

Use the following binding if you are storing the images in the \LaunchBox\Images\Platforms\[Platform Name]\Device folder. Here it is working in an edit of a Pause theme I was messing with.

Source="{Binding Platform.DeviceImagePath}"
