It was sarcasm, mate :)

Much like Napalm’s post.

Clearly I’m not good at this lol. 

That's good I was unsure if mine would come across as sarcasm or not 😉

I would prefer the title showing. Not-showing titles will make all Homebrew games unreadable (without the Ctrl+A trick)

Understood that the themes could be changed back, but I like the look of the new default overall, yet without titles below, I can't use it.b just thought you would want more community feedback

I will be adding an option to always show the titles, as they are currently displayed when an item is selected (overlapping the box art a tiny bit). I'm planning to put the option in the controls bar to make it easy to turn on and off.

What I specifically won't be doing for this particular theme is adding text below the boxes, because I feel like it will ruin much of the cleanliness of the theme (among other reasons, like the fact that I don't want to spend the extra time to do it for the moment). The good news is, though, as always, these themes are completely customizable, and I'm sure someone will step up and build something similar if enough people want it.

Im in agreement here. Thats the thing with themes they are very subjective, i have searched high and low for my "perfect" bigbox and Launchbox themes, i havent quite found either yet (and im not quite sure what that "perfect" theme is for me, ill know it when i see it though), always a little niggle or two for me. At the end of the day though the same themes people have always used are still available, this just adds another one to the pile of choice that you have.

Or if you really want it bad enough spend a little bit of time each day and learn some coding.  I have been able to tweak some themes to my liking and managed to learn enough even to release my own pause/startup themes. It really is not too daunting.

I know. If @C-Beats has enough time to post on the forum that must mean coding is not getting done.

We're taking a bit of a liking to you too. Yeah that is not happening anytime soon. Already getting irritated trying to figure out something in a LBTheme I am doing. Time to bug Jason.....lol

Took me a moment or two, but the change is real easy to do.

 

image.thumb.png.5261b749f671cb74e8aca561e333d13c.png

BoxesContentView.xaml

Lines 97/98


<Border x:Name="ImageTextBorder" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Background="#DD000000"
Visibility="Collapsed" CornerRadius="0,0,4,4">
 
Change to 
  
<Border x:Name="ImageTextBorder" VerticalAlignment="Bottom" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" Background="#DD000000"
Visibility="Visible" CornerRadius="0,0,4,4">

 

I like the new theme, but i think the no text is situational on certain Systems. Would love to see this have a toggle for each system, im not sure how easy that would be to do though.

Nope, not touching it, my theming career ended as soon as it started. Started and ended with perfection.

lol, its not perfection until you close these gaps on the new one.

after checking the below LaunchBox has been thinking for about 10-15 minutes with the windows spinning circle after clicking on OK. (edit: just clicked OK on a random section in Options and its doing the same thing)

After waiting some time it done it but isn't applying the center text.

I'm finding the zooming in/out for boxes is freezing a lot with the new theme.

Also is it possible to scale images to the button bar so images do not appear behind it?
