...started another one. Trying to design simpler banners, that everyone can make more (logo is separated from the banner). Neutral colors, less info, bigger images, more animations. This will look like a burial chamber for your collection. Keep it clean, keep it simple.oldones.thumb.png.9159e4d8716381bdf33dcf27b50931ff.png

More snaps. Game details/list view will have transition that brings the info on screen after couple of seconds, so you will have the "clean" view when scrolling through games. The box art will change to video also when the info pops in.1887241727_Mausoleum-Platforms.thumb.jpg.875193b0eb6e547d3a302912ad799c45.jpg769930668_Mausoleum-GameWheel1.thumb.jpg.2894a6230a24a053cd1bd8c21d462819.jpg2058120160_Mausoleum-GameWheel12.thumb.jpg.3e39d1028b7d15f2f5cedeb54a4bc3cf.jpg1421419610_Mausoleum-GameDetailsTurboGrafx-16.thumb.jpg.a60252aad1b6531699b2325dc0b2b486.jpg1994062799_Mausoleum-GameDetailsTurboGrafx-16-21.thumb.jpg.1a95fb65abb547810b148aa9caaba01e.jpg826595485_Mausoleum-GameDetailsGenesis-1.thumb.jpg.2113d321661675584b9f53537c976332.jpg

Progress. Few changes to the layouts. These screenshots are taken from a working demo. Funny how I want to make simple clean layouts, but in the building phase, I'am constantly trying to add more stuff and cram them into one view (carts, boxes, cd's, videos, screenshots ...). For some reason I'am trying to make a theme that suits everyone, when that isn't even possible. So for now on I'am just making a theme for myself. Still going to add it here for download, both the theme and the creation files. 

I think I like this better than my last theme (AllNightLong), which is a good sign.18426341_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-HorizontalWheel2GamesView-2020-07-0521_36_02.thumb.jpg.51322b18c11ffe7c7fe73f8244bf6c9c.jpg1918623410_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-HorizontalWheel2GamesView-2020-07-0521_35_59.thumb.jpg.b05d0e935bfd5c8a778d5dd83b264996.jpg1605316948_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-TextGamesView-2020-07-0521_35_21.thumb.jpg.970ee0d9aea1d2a508b759f60e75ecfd.jpg532441649_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-TextGamesView-2020-07-0521_35_39.thumb.jpg.a4145eca14b7ac3020b1878b90ebc7f3.jpg

Some new shots from the theme. Both 16:9 and 4:3 ratios seem to work fine.

16:9 ratio

Incredible work! I'm biased towards themes that favor CRTs (which is what I use) but man this is sleek!

Can you make one for Visual Pinball X too?

You mean a platform banner? Yes I could make one.

Still Super excited For this one. Two questions 

1. Are you making this with the theme creator?

2. If yes, are you sharing the files after if we want to say edit small things like color or style of artwork etc?

1. Yep

2. Of course, I will share all the files.

Currently trying to decide the platform/playlist banner styles. Need to keep them simple and looking good.

Awesome, thanks for the response. Love what you have done so far! Everything is looking top notch! No complaints from me on the screen shots you've shown :)

New snaps from current version that I'am testing. Not going to make too many views, just focusing on few and trying to nail those. Decided to use plain photos in playlists and categories. The thing is that I will leave many of these blank, so everyone can use their own photos/images. I found few nice photos from unsplash.com.1345668065_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-PlatformWheel1FiltersView-2020-07-2219_24_56.thumb.jpg.709eed6c7cda133aba626b022a2a7dcc.jpg1454055268_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-HorizontalWheel1GamesView-2020-07-2219_25_07.thumb.jpg.d25e6608e5d4cdcfad3e60b86949467e.jpg869810495_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-TextGamesView-2020-07-2219_25_12.thumb.jpg.f0d441ff3a3b60d4dfe68a9c61d1f477.jpg1107865816_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-TextGamesView-2020-07-2219_25_18.thumb.jpg.7427a5ad9e98f65f63329c77081f13d7.jpg1087389803_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-TextGamesView-2020-07-2218_36_19.thumb.jpg.c416fcb7ff21c9dc935a456658b5794e.jpg426983563_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-HorizontalWheel2GamesView-2020-07-2219_25_38.thumb.jpg.f48cf0405e9e4879df7eb3201d4e5a6d.jpg1795801230_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-PlatformWheel1FiltersView-2020-07-2219_25_56.thumb.jpg.aefb0de3eeab087e0f23ef08aab9f45b.jpg2028335145_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-PlatformWheel1FiltersView-2020-07-2219_26_02.thumb.jpg.eb61c7a2fdd17efdfbe93b459b22644c.jpg1457201978_BigBoxScreenshot-Mausoleum-PlatformWheel1FiltersView-2020-07-2219_26_10.thumb.jpg.269ac29b895061078961278a529e0130.jpg

Sorry, I decided to abandon this style. The dark filters made the images look too much alike and I'am now trying to make ones that are unique and easy to distinguish from one another. More color and interesting angles. Unfortunately I'am missing good quality device images at the moment.
