[WIP] NES mini theme
« on: March 11, 2017, 05:40:40 AM »
UPDATE

V2.1 add in the attachments

V2 add in the attachments



--new stuff:

v2.1

*added Mame among the systems (untested so if something break well, just tell me please  :P)
*added option to select custom1 to custom 6 buttons (only one to call/change to the menu, but alas now have the chance to select it  ;D)
*added the option to increase o decrease the delay time in the favorite mode (this is when you just added/remove a game from your favourites dont overloaded with requests )

V2

*Menu now is working in the next way (from left to right):

1. change between emulators
2. enter into favorite mode
3. change filter list
4. show/hide snaps (Screenshots only - no videos but i think this can be change)

* Add the thumbnails grid
* fix the aspect ratio for the artbox
* the leftmost and rightmost are semi hidden
* add a couple more of system so can be Customized

The favourite mode allows you to navigate equally in the selection but instead of launching a game what it does is add it to your favorites

there is a delay timer, please change it in the code To fit your cpu cycles, search for the tick_fn (yeah i know i would add a option for this in the future)

please assign a button to your "Custom1" in the contol options, you will need it in the order to make work the menu (yeah, i know i need to add this too to an option)
(fixed in V2.1)

please test it and if you can, make it better (I mean if you can improve it, fix the problems  I would appreciate it and please share it with the others)

--found glitches (its not perfect)

some weirds delays at the start of the layout (if you go right take some time to catch up the next game, but if you go to the left there is no delay at all)
some weirds jumps In the thumbnails when you trying to add a favourite game or start a game or exit the theme
any other thing that you can find

_______________________________________________________________________________________________________

V1

Well this is my first version (its a heavy modification of the grid theme), its missing the thumbnails and the snaps preview

I need help on those and if anyone would like to make some theme for the rest of the systems please share it in this thread.

for the images to work, need to drop in the folder system you want to change,and need to have the next names:

top (top image),
bottom (bottom image),
frame and frame2 (the frames that select your game)
logo (logo of the system) ...

the working resolution is 16:9 but i think it works in 4:3 too ..

sorry for no screenshoot

Please test it and tell me your opinion

thanks and kind regards

Thanks for making some content mate!  I did start something like this, but then I seen another guy making more magic so thought to let that project develop.  Then Nothings been released there for months so I kinda wish I just continued it.  I aint loaded your up but will be downloading and seeing what you have done this week.  However it is, thank you so much for adding content and being part of all this.

Thank you mate!

If you paste the code I think I can help you with this.
Maybe you have to resize the "artwork" to an small size.

For the moment I prefer to see if someone can give a better solution than I did

copy and paste the code would be almost impossible, since I made a mess  :P

But my main idea was to create a second class that extends from the convenyor class and synchronize the movement of the main grid with the thumbnails, But as both classes extend from the convenyor dunno if affect (I think that it shouldn't but it does in a way that the behavior of the thumbnails makes some weirds things and the slowness)

Maybe someone can give a better idea?

Good news, finally made it working right the thumbnails and now im working in the ratio aspect, Now its looking very similar to the original version of the Nes mini theme, well still need some minors fixing But I think I'm on the right track.

Any suggestions are more than welcome, thank you very much

kind regards

PD. I will Update the attachment as soon as I have this version a little more polished
