COLORFUL bigbox theme


viking

Recommended Posts

Thank you @viking! Both Colorful themes available in the Themes Manager in Big Box have been updated, so if you have downloaded them from the themes manager, you can update them from there.

Otherwise, if you've downloaded your theme from the forums, the forums themes have been updated as well.

Thanks again! Most of the platform wheel 2 images appear to be working again. 
 

Several of the more recently added platforms are showing a green box now, and it doesn’t appear that changing the color codes using the dll still works. Any suggestions?

The new way of adding colors is by editing the COLORFUL_Styles.xaml file within: LaunchBox\Themes\Colorful - Light\Views\Styles

Should be as straight forward as adding a new SolidColorBrush line and editing the key to match (or partially match) your platform/playlist name and adding your color.

Working perfectly. Thanks again.

Tbh, I don't know where the colours come from. I'm guessing it comes from the videos that were created either by viking or someone in the community. You could always try an eye dropper program to capture the colour from the video.

@neil9000 Try #349EC8 for Windows and #7F1711 for ZX Spectrum

Yeah there used to be a colour chart available with the codes, that seems to of been deleted since the updated version of the theme. Its all well and good saying you can add any colour to any system, but most people wont have a clue what colour code they need. I didnt know there were programs to get those codes, so ill have a look for one.

I just copied the above images, put them in MS Paint and then used the eyedropper tool. It only shows RGB though so you have to convert it to hex. I'm not sure what color chart you're referring to, maybe @faeran has it somewhere.

Those two codes are a little too dark, but close enough thanks, ill have a look for a program though to find them. Why cant it be simple and just be "light blue" and "dark red" :)

Hi @neil9000,

If you have Photoshop, you can download the source file of the videos here:

Those zips include the psd and you can get the colour directly from the background layer (I can speak for the ZX spectrum as I was the one that created it).

I hope this helps...
