Colorful - Light Theme - COMMUNITY Theme Creator version - Need Testers


Recommended Posts

Hi! I don't know if they've already reported it, but I ran into problems with the different views when displaying the larger image.

With the "Detail Text List" view, there is no problem.

With the "Platform Wheel" views, the problem appears that the larger image does not display correctly.

But if video is available, there is no problem with all view types.

 

Another error that I found is that except for "Platform", "Platform category" and "Playlists", the rest of the options are completely blank, making it impossible to see.

 

I am using Launchbox 11.17, but I tried it on another PC with 11.10 and it also gave the same error. And thanks for making this great theme!

Thanks for the report!

I'm a bit curious about the video image fallback you are seeing, as that's not controlled by the theme at all.

The platform textlist oddities will be fixed before the theme gets officially released.

I have been watching your theme workshop and I can't wait to see new beta for colorful theme as I'm one of fan for colorful theme for aesthetics, spacing and transition.

However, one thing I'd love to see an improvement on colorful is the "speed".

When there are thousands of collection, we need at least 1 detailed view for faster preview for video, box art and screenshots.

Please see video:

You can see how video preview loads in less than about 1 second. This was possible on Quad Core 1.5GHZ CPU (RK3326) running on SD card.

I'm running Bigbox on i7-6700K @ 4.00GHz with samsung 850 EVO SSD (only Launchbox and Retroarch) with 32GB RAM and RTX 3080 Ti.

But I haven't found one theme (out of 44 themes I've downloaded from Bigbox and forum) that could load video preview faster than this weak CPU device. 

Would this be possible and could you consider implement into colorful theme?

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge.

My findings on testing tonight are semi unexpected. I switched between the new Theme Builder and the Official quite a few different times. I'm confused. Performance on the TB version is better... in parts. The transitions between cover art and videos / screenshots are way different. TB seems to have the 3d flip transition coming into play where the Official did fades. Some images seem to pop in and then disappear. Some videos get weird artifacting as well which I did not see on the Official. My wheel performance was odd also. Once letting all the wheels load their images, I was still getting slow pop in for Logos compared to the Official. Scrolling is faster though by far! I hope this is fruitful, but for now I am going to resort back to the Official. I will keep an eye out. Regardless, a huge step in the right direction. Thank you for the efforts!
