Need coding help on Carrier module
« on: February 02, 2018, 10:34:10 AM »
Hi.
I need some help guys.

I've been toying with ArcadeBliss's conveyor theme (found here) and while I absolutely love it, the scrolling in the carrier module is definitely the more smoother of the two.  What i'm trying to do is mimic certain parts of the conveyor with carrier.



The main key parts i want to mimic:
1. The selected art is much larger than the rest of the list.  It is also perfectly centered vertically in the list.  (Although I don't mind if it were to be aligned on the bottom with it getting larger on top like this pic.)
2. The selected art is full brightness while the rest of the list is muted/darker.

I'm sorry i'm a noob and this code is way too advanced for me.  I'm not asking for a complete rewrite because that's a lot of work but if it's simple as changing up some parts can someone post the new parts I need to overwrite in the carrier to make this work?  Or even point me to where in the code I need to adjust.  Would be much appreciated!  Thanks.

P.S.  Just wondering.  Is it possible to do a text list with carrier or is it purely only flyers and videosnaps?

though don't forget you can add borders to the selected game...would look nice?

Carrier( carrierPosX, carrierPosY, carrierWidth, carrierHeight, tilesCount, tilesOffscreen, tilePadding[, selectorImage, backgroundImage]

@dukpoki - ArcadeBliss more recently wrote a Conveyor_Helper Module http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=1945.0. I don't know if it can do exactly what you want but it has a fade option to darken the unselected games in the coverflow sample layout.
