[dev re-started] THE EYE theme
« on: March 02, 2016, 01:03:15 AM »
UPDATE:

THE EYE development re-started! Yay! My weak coding skills are no longer an issue - because it will be coded by ArcadeBliss. Currently we have a working prototype with a key features and testing a few new ideas.

You can see the video HERE





ORIGINAL POST:

Good idea - it could rotate, maybe on the game title change.

And, I "see" what you are doing there, no pun intended.

The "eye" can rotate or wink when it changes the game. :)

Even better - the eye can be constructed with multiple layers and those layers can rotate  and scale independently.
But it sounds like it is waaay above my coding skills.

It's just the concept (for now). I will have to make some clever masking in that corners - to hide the fact that video can't be cropped to round shape - and fanart can't actually goes that "deep" under snap.

What do you think about the video "window"?
Image can be bent (like a sphere) or totally flat.

Looks awesome. :)

My idea...

You should make it "blink" on game change. (Never mind that might be creepy..) :P
People want life easy..then complain about it

Actually ArcadeBliss was first to propose this. I'm not sure if it will look good, but I've said "give it a go".
For me something like shutter would be better.

I'm working on info panels for this theme.

What do you think?

What info you would like to display?

Is the "PLATFORM: ARCADE" good enough? or should I go with platform logo? I would rather stick to the text only, because I don't see (a good) place to put the logo"

I think Platform is enough. The theme will have enough assets for a user to deal with ( snap, fanart, wheel logos). I like the curved arch to mach the eye's curve

I agree. And mame-only users (like me) could use this slot for something else that is not available for other emus (that don't have nplayers.ini etc.).

---

I like the curved arch of info panels too - my only concern is if there is enough space left for spin wheel - especially in 16:9
And I think that it would be nice if the spin wheel curve could match the eye's curve - like bent in opposite direction than robospin wheel.
