LV-101

View File

LV-101 is dark, futuristic and responsive theme. Theme uses custom device and playlist images (download the psd templates from here). 108 devices are included in this package.

Should work well with 16:10, 16:9, 4:3 and 5:4 ratios.

Theme was designed to use box art, gameplay screenshot and gameplay video. If you want to make changes you can download the Community Creator Tool Files.

For view transitions I recommend the vertical animation, it just feels right with this theme.

Requires a powerful system to run smoothly. Tried it with i5-4570t and performance was horrible. AllNightLong works better on older systems.

 

Theme contains:

  • Platform Wheel 1
  • Platform Wheel 2
  • Text Filters View
  • Text Games View
  • Horizontal Wheel 1 Games View
  • Horizontal Wheel 2 Games View

So not a lot, but I didn't want to make this theme as huge as my previous theme. Less is more, or so they say.

Just an FYI he did release the files you can use to create additional platforms images. I believe GIMP which is free can open psd files.

Thank you

I can make these for you. Amiga CD32 and SuperGrafx should already be in the devices folder... I might have misspelled them.

I just set up a 5:4 monitor with Lv-101, then jumped into the community editor to make a few small tweaks:

  • Game view with video on right, rather than screenshot
  • 3D Box in middle
  • Clear logo above
  • Few font sizes

Nothing major and the only real addition was the clear logo, but now I'm getting random freezing, 90% of the time it's when you hit escape to go to main menu, 10% in the playlist view (I only use playlist view as this is a 1up machine I've upgraded for Racing/Star Wars games).  Win 10-64, GTX 1650 LP, 8GB. Not a rocketship, but solid SFF Optiplex.

Anyone see similar when editing with community tools? I love the theme and the ability to tweak. So clean, awesome job @thimolor

Do you use the view with the background video? Does this problem occur with both platform views? Have you tried disabling the transition animations from bigbox options?

Awesome theme, I really dig the style!

There's one issue I have, which I can't seem to fix by myself. If there is no video, I'd like to see the screenshot in the gamelist view. 

If I add it as a background image, it will show through the video.

 

If you have the time to look into it, i'd really appreciate that!
