While we have the monkey himself here, i expext this new theme with the spacing of "Bad old Monkey" crack on.

 

Funny as this is what I was tinkering with early this morning. I was using a MonkeyPlexCondensed mix. It is getting redone with the new changes. I'm just not altering the naming. Do not want to alter Jason's vision too much. 🤣

If I were a professional wrestler this would be my finishing move.

I really like the way things look now but is there currently a setting to make the image-size slider work on a per-platform basis?  Most of my game boxes look great but I feel like my SNES-size boxes should be bigger.

I've noticed that the game icons that appear when you hover over a game's cover are missing in this theme. Are they gone for good or not implemented yet?

when editing a game and clicking on ok it then adds a play count to the game.

Doesn't seem to do that for me, but after I click Okay when done editing it seems to now leave the background as default and not have any details on the side while it still has the game I just edited selected. That's if it doesn't go all the way back to the top of the list where the selected game is out of sight

I think its the following as no live refresh of data is happening after exiting the game

I open the game then exit and then go to Edit Game and click OK and the Play Count refreshes. I guess the OK is refreshing the view as I did not go out and back into it.

I really don't like the new theme. Thanks for keeping the old default intact.

Is there a way I can back it up in case it goes away in future updates? It works really well with Clear Logo art :)

Its not going to go away but if you want a copy of it just copy it from the theme folder and keep it somewhere safe. I don't think LB has a built in method to backup themes (someone correct me if that isn't factual).

Beta 2 is out now with fixes for all the previous issues with the new theme, at least as far as I can tell. We're also working on some new retroachievements.org features from the poll, which should be out in beta form here very soon.

Does that by any chance include being able to view game titles under the boxes? Or is that coming later? I can't seem to find an option to turn them on.

Thanks.

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.

Not sure what it is but seems I'm now having times where a singular Edit ends up being a Bulk Edit?

yes this happens to me fairly often.   it seems to keep previous entries selected a bit more robustly than it used to.

Per the text, I can easily add in a setting to always show the black text box on the bottom of the artwork (instead of only when it's selected), so I'll probably do that before release. The other option though is to just press control+A for select all.

 

Thanks @neil9000.

I guess I completely missed the part where we somehow went from, "Sure, I can easily add that option" to "Nope, not going to do it" 😕

Need to have your bottom bar shown (Ctrl-Shift-B). Right next to the add button is a check box that says text. Make sure it is checked and the text will now appear.

What he was saying there was that he would add the option to always show the game name overlayed on the box, he never said he would be adding it under the game like the old default theme.

That's great, this is one of the features from the poll that I was excited about. @Lordmonkus time for me to get more Fakey McFakerton Points!

i noticed with the new theme in regard to clear logos, If the logo is small when you select the game the text overlay swamps the logo completely.

I guess this would be more of an issue with other language logos, where you would want to see the name.

Just pointing this out, i personally have no issue with it, but thought i would mention it.

 

Just adding to this, When you hover over a game the box with the options comes up then the game tooltip goes over the top of that. Not sure there is a way to fix that though
