How to use multiple screenshots in a startup theme

Recommended Posts

I was wondering if anyone knows how to display 2 different screenshots at the same time?

Currently I am using '{Binding BackgroundImagePath}' to display a background but I am trying to figure out how to access, screenshots, fanart, etc. More importantly how to make launchbox display screenshot1 and then screenshot2 so that they are never the same and then also set a fallback using fanart.

Anyway, I hope this is the right way to inquire. Please help if you can and thanks in advance.

Moving this to the specific startup theme subforum. 

Also checked with Jason and this may not be possible with the standard screenshot binding <Image Source="{Binding Path=SelectedGame.ScreenshotImagePath}" /> as it would just randomly select an image from the folder. He said it may be possible with some other type of coding but would take some work/research. They have a plate full already so this may be something that, unless one of our resident theme coders knows or could help, may take some time to get solved.

Thank you for this. Your response is very helpful. I am learning how this community works and how to find or get the help I need. Thank you all for looking at this.

I found a working solution which I will post here to help others in the future. I ended up going with a background image and a screenshot rather than 2 screenshots. This works well for my purposes and has made my Startup Theme far more attractive now that it does not show the same image twice. I am just calling upon a different image type in each spot as follows;

Here is how I accomplished this:

  1. Background Image: 
    Source="{Binding Path=SelectedGame.BackgroundImagePath}"

     

  2. Screenshot Image: 
    Source="{Binding Path=SelectedGame.ScreenshotImagePath}"

     

So the solution is not exactly what I asked for but it completely works. Again thank you all for your help.
