Can the default theme be edited to make a slight change?


Recommended Posts

I'd love to have a 2D game wall instead of the Star Wars crawl style. That would be two changes, one for the style of the wall itself and one (possibly) to change the 3D boxes to 2D. Is the default theme editable enough to do this?

You cannot edit the Default theme directly as it will always revert to is default code. You can copy the Default theme folder and name it what you want. Then you can edit it the code to what you like. If you are not running the latest beta there have been improvement to the Wall View and it looks more like what you are asking for. So you can either copy and edit the default theme, test the beta version, or wait for the next stable release to use the new Wall Views.

Oh excellent, then I'll wait. I have a mix of Famicom and SNES 3d boxes that distort the appearance of the star wars craw display pretty badly, so I hadn't used it. But one of the modern design languages in these library systems including GoG, Steam, Playnite, and others is to use two dimensional space efficiently. So I see a lot of either wall displays (games) or multiple row displays (Netflix and Disney Plus). I'd like to steer my experience closer to that and reduce the boisterous, lengthy animation.

Thanks for the reply. It is, in fact, what I was looking for. The platform view isn't *quite* to my taste so I can wait a little while artists take a good crack at the new features. Otherwise at some point I could do some theme and image work on my own.

Don't forget that you have the ability to use multiple different themes in the set up at the same time. Use a platform view from one theme, and a games view from another.

Hmm. I'm not sure I see how to do separate themes per view. The way the options work can seem a bit convoluted, so I assume I'm missing something

You need to set a controller/keyboard button to "change view" then go to the platform/view you want to change and use that key and pick the theme from the list.
