I would be grateful if more would test this theme. 3 more people could get it now. I'am considering releasing this the next weekend, but before that I need to be sure that it's working for all because I don't have the time to give support after the release.

Count me in too!

Made big change for the game details view. It's so hard to get this view right for me at least. Decided to add the video as a background. That way the screen does not get cramped and you still get a good view about the gameplay.

Made one more wheel to the theme. And the Game Details view has changed once again. The fullscreen videos are too heavy (for my i5 at least) so I decided to optimize a little. The box art will slide off-canvas and the video appears after that. I have uploaded the theme now for approval.

I must say, I'm not a fan of the blue background, I liked your old version better. But hey, that's just my opinion, and you still made an amazing work !

:) sorry. I knew that it's a risk choosing a color scheme for the theme. You can always change the background images to your likings: AllNightLong\Media\Custom Assets 

 

I realized that I have left few unused backgrounds there and then it hit me. I could do few color variations in the custom assets folder. I will just rename the files better. So everyone can change the background color to their liking.

 

So if you can't stand blue color you can change the background yourself. Made few alternatives. The views use the same background.

Thank you very much for taking time to make changes. It looks much better already I think. :) But actually, what I really liked in your first version was the transparency and blur effect we can see in the first post in the 2 Alisia Dragoon pictures. That is what got me hooked by your theme !

Wow I love this theme! 

thimolor - Any chance you'd be willing to share your template for the banners? Would love to fill out some of the missing blanks from my collection

Yes of course! Give me few days. I will clean the template file and add it to the download section. It should include the logos, devices and the effects.

Thanks so much for posting it! 

I started going through and making a bunch for my missing systems. Some are of varying quality. Finding HQ images for some of these consoles can be difficult but I think they turned out mostly ok?

Hopefully I'll be able to post a complete pack (for my setup) in a few days. Are you ok if I post it? You can add them to the theme if you like too! I'll attach a few samples but I think the forum tends to compress things down a bit so they might look a lil blurry

Nice work @Crylen! I'am more than ok with these. Can I add these to the main theme? You will be credited of course. I'am doing little tweaks to the theme and going to publish them maybe next week.

For sure! I'll keep plugging away at these over the next week or so and post a big package when they're done.
I should mention I don't have any plans to do fanart in the same style. The console images just aren't high res enough to be worth converting to 4k for fanart and I'm not planning on using that view anyway.

Nice work @Crylen ! I can't wait for your versions of Nec TurboGrafX-CD, SuperGrafX and NeoGeo AES, because those are the 3 ones I'm missing. :)

See attached zip for all the extra banners I created!

AllNightLong Banners.zip

I'm still missing a bunch of Arcade systems but I'm going to take a little break for a few days. I'll get them officially posted on Launchbox at some point too but hopefully someone else can make use of them until the

Includes 112 banners. Some of the them are the originals that came with the theme, others are completely new. I ended up re-creating a few of them to match the new ones (IE I remade N64 to match the N64DD logo, or some of the NEC systems)

@Theboombringer There's also a PS3 banner in there too.

One more horizontal wheel for games is coming with more game info. Implemented the "loading" bar to two more views, helps to know when the info and video will pop up.1292799856_BigBoxScreenshot-AllNightLong-HorizontalWheel3GamesView-2020-05-2321_08_59.thumb.jpg.dd1bf4b5723e4229eca1f0b44b982ee1.jpg1386909779_BigBoxScreenshot-AllNightLong-HorizontalWheel3GamesView-2020-05-2321_09_02.thumb.jpg.f8e3901616a838aebfb6e46e86f05f43.jpg
