COLORFUL bigbox theme (BETA)

Recommended Posts

Crashing for me from installs, both the zip file and the BigBox manager.

"FlowControl' name cannot be found in the name scope of 'System.Windows.Controls.TextBlock'."

Oh my. This is fantastic. First new theme in a long time that I've REALLY just loved. It's different, well-designed, and looks great in 4k, give-or-take some text upscaling (but that seems to be a mostly windows issues). Incredible work, viking.

Any chance for Consoles, Handhelds, Computers videos in the same vein as the specific consoles? That's the only thing holding me back from using it as my primary.

@shadowblind : Thx !!! 😃

A problem about the text size? I was very careful at this point!
Can you make me a screen? Probably a problem of windows DPI. I did all my tests 100% in Windows 10.

And yes, I will make the basic playlist video. (category and arcade)

Damn, that looks nice.

Now if I could just be demanding and ask for a matching startup video/platoform catagory videos/platform clear logos/pause screens/startup screens/bezels for all systems that would be great

Joking ofcourse! but this theme is so slick :) , the mock ups look amazing

Hey! Congrats for this amazing work!

Is there any chance to consider a dark mode? On oled (even at minimum brightness) the full white burns the eyes at night.

Thanks again!!!

Viking, j'ai vu qu'en fait tu étais français, donc je pose ma question en français : comment as-tu fait pour avoir les descriptions des plateformes en français, justement ? Merci !

 

English : how did you make the platform descriptions show in french ?

@Webandme : Thx !  😘

@Tromzy : J'ai édité les platformes à la main, en copiant/collant les infos de la page wikipedia FR. Je n'ai pas eu le courage de le faire pour les jeux ! 😃
I edited the platforms by hand, copying / pasting the info from the wikipedia FR page. I did not have the courage to do it for games!

@sagaopc : Unfortunately no. This is not at all the spirit of this theme. Sorry. In addition, the number of views is limited. With what I have in mind, everything is already full !

Excellent theme - the best quality one so far.

I was wondering if I could get any of the project files for the videos as a base so I can fill in some gaps?

First of all your them is amazing. Insta-switched. 

Second, is there a way to show a playlist game count? I created a playlist wich shows with console and the game count is 0 when there's actualy 3 games in the playlist.
