COLORFUL bigbox theme (BETA)

Recommended Posts

@sagaopc that was exactly like I would imagine the perfect view. @viking I believe some of us want these type of views due to the huge amount of time we've spent scrapping all the box art, logo and disc media and I am sad not being able to show it on a theme :( I know this goes against your minimalist view on this theme but pleeeease consider just creating one view with this format pleaseee. Your theme is amazing, that's why everybody wants to use it and make it personal I guess lol. Keep up the amazing work!

A quick message:

I dont post a lot right now, sorry. I have a lot of work for the next 3 weeks.
But I dont forget Colorful!
In parallel, I work hard on category video and with @eatkinola on the theme!! 

I'll be back soon with new content! 🥰

For waiting, some screen of future category video.
Mainly complete 4K remake of Nostalgia version. But for "arcade" and "playlist", I will realize them in full CGI. Which requires more time, necessarily.

Your videos are amazing! Any plans on specifik vids like one for Steam, GoG, Battle.net etc? I´d love to be able to make some myself! What software are you using?

Thx @Qbertzelious !
I have not planned yet, but I designed the "Windows" platform video so that we can customize it by service. (Steam, GOG, Ubi ...)
For example: Windows Boot> Open service window> Gameplay video.

I am very busy right now. As soon as I have time, I do it in order: All arcade by LB automatic playlist, and I create a download page with all sources!
It's done with Photoshop and AfterEffect CS6. Old version, so very compatible. No plugin, to facilitate the help of the community.

The only problem I have is how it handles white text in logos, AKA poorly. The white text just merges with the background and becomes unreadable. I've noticed it with the Nintendo DS, Sonic 1, Jed Fallen Order, and Undertale. I think maybe a grey background around the area where logo text goes would really help, maybe lower the opacity on the grey if it helps.

You're right.
But rather than working on background, I think it would be better to add an outline to the text.
But I'm not sure it's possible here. I'll look !

Awesome theme, my favorite! Is there any way to delay the animation when selecting a platform? To sit on the wheel a bit longer, or maybe add a second button press?  I love it but when i hand it to people to use they always hit 'b' to change platforms instead of up and down. Thanks again!

@viking I noticed today the game counts do not show up in playlists. Editing the binding for games count from {Binding Path=ActivePlatform.TotalGameCount} to {Binding GamesCount} allows playlists to show the count. Was not sure if you were aware Jason had that binding available. 

Thanks for all the hard work on the themes and videos. Looks great in my newest cabinet build.
