The setting you're looking for is not placed at Transitions menu. You'll probably find it at Views menu. Choose if you want to apply that change for all your themes from BigBox options, or for an specific theme instead, from, of course, Specific Theme Options.

Mmmm I can't see any settings that relate to timings anywhere apart from wheel speeds - am I missing something?

Could you tell me where I can change the transition timeouts please? When I'm scrolling through games/platforms and I stop scrolling it almost immediately switches to currently selected item theme. I'd either like to make that longer as It's too quick or turn it off until a key is pressed?

 

Cheers.

If you are talking about the transition of the wheel out of view and directly into the video for the item the wheel landed on that is controlled by the theme's coding. It is not a BigBox setting. So the code would need to be edited. That could be anywhere from a single line of code to multiple lines.

Ah thanks something for @viking to comment on then?  ;->

Sorry for the late reply guys, I'm just done with the covid ... ^^'

Speeding up or slowing down the animation is going to be a real pain in the ass. You have to change the time values of each element relative to each other!
Sorry =/

If adventure motivates you, these are all the time values in the <StoryBoard> part of the view.
Don't forget to save! Each update will overwrite your changes.

Since I got ignored in the other thread I'm putting it here ?.

As a suggestion, it would be possible use the background fanart in the game/platform selection in a shade that doesn't stand out too much, I'd love to see it.

concept done quickly with Phothsop?

You have not been ignored. I have been hospitalized a lot as a result of the Covid last month. I'm still recovering. =)

I like the result on the selection overlay. (your 1st picture)
Less on the main page. Overloaded.
I'm not guaranteeing you anything, but I'll think about it.
Otherwise, you can make your version and post it here. I could add it as an option with your credit if you wish. =)

I was joking about ignoring, that's why I put the emoticon, I don't know how to create it, if I hadn't already done it, thanks for your answer and get well.

Hello,

I'm trying to know why the custom color per platform were not working for me. Does anyone for whom custom colors work have the lastest version of Launchbox. Because for me i got this error int the "Ao.Bigbox.Themer.v3_9_7a.dll" logs :

I think the DLL Ao.Bigbox.Themer is not compatible with the newest version of launchbox/bigbox and wont load correctly because the Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows DLL can't be found in the /Core/Metadata folder (does not exist anymore) and now is in the /Core folder.

Is there a plugin that can do the same as the Ao.Bigbox.Themer in replacement ?

Hi @DebugFlo. This should only be an issue if you are on the most recent beta. The theme should work fine on the latest official version of LaunchBox (currently 11.12). If you are more worried about the Colorful theme than testing the new beta features, you can always revert back to the official release by going into your LaunchBox\Updates folder and running the 11.12 installer overtop your LaunchBox files.

Unfortunately, the themer plugin that Colorful uses for some of its features is no longer being worked on by the author anymore.

There are ways to accomplish what the themer plugin does for Colorful, but the theme would have to go through some major migration efforst to achieve them.

It's not a problem for me to do these migrations, as long as i know how to do them. I looked at the documentation, but I don't have the impression that there is a way to do conditional in the views but i may have look wrong.

Yes, that part would require a converter, which is one of the reason viking chose to go with the themer plugin at the time.

Uh oh! Looks like launchbox 11.14 does still have an issue with the Colorful theme. As before on the 13.x betas, all of the platform wheel 2 themes now have gray boxes next to them when they load. 
 

Are we out of luck?

I do not believe there were any fixes made in this release of LB/BB to address the issue with the plugin not working. Unfortunately the plugin creator will need to update the plugin or an update to the theme will need to be done.

A big thank you to @faeran and @Jason Carr for their help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I was blocked by an obsolete plugin that I had not developed. (and that I am quite incapable of developing)
Remember that I am a graphic designer, not a coder. I am so damn bad and a very slow  developer.
Fortunately, our 2 Superman have integrated color management by platform into BigBox !!! If that's not incredible!!!!! :x

An updated version to correct this problem will soon be rolled out to regular channels. Thank you for your patience !

 

Some of you know, I have had a few health problems over the past few months. From September, I will resume a good cruising speed and promise you some nice updates.
Mostly, I will focus on the videos. This branch of the project has not moved forward for too long.
