Editorial Noir - [Theme Stream]

Editorial Noir was built during a Theme Stream broadcast. If you are interested in creating themes, follow me on Twitch, or watch the videos later on YouTube.

Editorial Noir

This theme is my take on porting the exciting ES theme by chicuelo called Epic Noir.

Hello Faeran and everyone else!
This theme is exactly what i was looking for...sleek, dark, elegant and fast, therefor i'm gonna mod it for my personal build (and eventually share whatever good comes out).

My only actual problem is with the Community Theme Creator files...if i do select a playlist in the menu everything crashes and i get an exception error. Can't paste the text content because the program becomes unresponsive, so i'll attach a screenshot.
I'm using version 1.0.8.2 but this happened with previous versions as well.

Any idea how to fix this and why is it happening?

Thanks @ilcomandantecobra. If you haven't already, go to the community theme creator forum thread and post your issue with the theme creator there. I'm sure @y2guru will be happy to work with you to figure out the issue with it.

Can't wait to see your mods of this theme.

Editorial Noir with Horizontal WheelGC.thumb.jpg.9b264333555c7d904daedc8bb1711d98.jpg

1. Platform View 2 (Nintendo Gamecube)

Genesis.thumb.jpg.3d9c4268080e704d19022d603b6a4c9f.jpg2. Platform View 2 (Sega Genesis)

Over the past week I have been working on a horizontal view for the Editorial Noir theme ported by Faeran. I wanted to experiment with a black and white printed newspaper style to embrace the themes presented with Epic Noir by chicuelo. I have built out the new platform view 2 wallpapers and controller images independently from platform view 1, which allows the user to switch between the two styles from within the same theme. 

If anyone would like to make additional platform images, the size is 2050 x 950. I then used a tone map in affinity to make the images black and white. I am sure photoshop has a similar tone map profile. Below I will post other platform images that have been stylized. 

Please let me know your thoughts if this style direction is something people would be interested in. Black and white images really pop on high contrast displays. With community creator 1.0.8.5 just releasing, it appears there are new tools to flesh out a truly unique black and white theme. 

-- Thank you to Faeran and Y2guru for your work in helping make theme creation mainstream.
