This is a thread for the Colorful platform videos. I think you are wanting the Colorful theme's support thread

Ups, sorry I was browsing both and mixed them up ūüė≥


However, sounds like you are looking for {Binding Path=SelectedPlatform.NestedName}

Thanks for the tip, I actually haven't tried that because it was not mentioned on the documentation pdf but it works flawlessly! Cheers

Those are really swell. 

yesterday I found some nice looking arcade cabinet 3d models (yay). unfortunately those were made for sketchup (boo!).
the models

I can't properly render models in free sketchup (booo), but I also found a script that lets me import the model into blender (yay). but some models have really weird spokes in there wireframe which screws up the textures in the material (boo!)
I'm an absolute beginner (yesterday)  with these types of programmes, so i'm excited to see what can be done.. 

some pointers if anyone has ever dabbled with this stuff would be most appreciated :)

It seems that If I open the models in Sketchup and export them as waveform objects the mistranslation of meshes occurs less frequently :)


another try out... replaced the lower resolution images baked in the material.

I decided to do a few more missing Arcade ones, although quite simple conversions. Also got Namco ES3 and NESiCAxLive as WIP.  @viking The source / video files are on the Dropbox as always.

I started installing the excellent theme and resources today and noticed the Atari 7800 video was not added. I used BigBox theme manager. Manually downloaded it and added fixed it of course but just wanted to let you know.

Thx @Klopjero !
Few comments :

"Mame LightGun":
The background color may be too strong. Too dark and saturated. I'm afraid it's too present once in the interface.

Perfect, but know that there can only be one color per platform. So it will be the color for "Mame", not for "Arcade".

"Naomi" work in progress :
Awesome!! I looked a lot for a 3D model already made by laziness to do it myself!
On the other hand, be careful on the left: it exceeds the "square" guide. It must not be exceeded to be able to create PNGs.
You must have these guides in the PSD files.
