SILKY Theme v0.6.9 beta
« on: March 13, 2017, 01:00:34 PM »
SILKY Theme v0.6.9 beta


Features:
- silky smooth animation ( stuttering on the video is caused by the recording software )
- adapts to all horizontal resolutions with pixel perfect positioning
- configurable number of snaps in Layout Options
- rewritten animation module from scratch
- rewritten conveyor from scratch ( I use my carrier.nut module )
- custom dialogs
- configurable colour scheme in Layout Options
- colour randomizer ( assign a button to "Custom1" in AM Controls )
- I used genre icons from Game Station theme. I hope the autor doesn't mind. I was inspired by his work anyway. Only the genre displaying function was taken from his code.

Note: Colour randomizer scheme is overriden on launching AM by the colours set in Layout Options. If you want the scheme to be permanent, leave Colours blank in Options, or copy the values given by the randomizer to Layout Options.

REQUIREMENTS:

- the latest Attract Mode nightly build
- snaps and videos on the SSD for smooth scrolling
- set selection_speed_ms  51 in attract.cfg

CHANGELOG:

18/04/2017
 - Fixed a bug causing layout error in colour randomizer

17/04/2017
 - Improved readability of small fonts in resolutions 800x600 and below
 - Added ability to set a delay in seconds after which the game list autohides. Setting it to 0 disables autohiding.
 - Further speed optimizations

13/04/2017
 - Game List Rows added to Layout Options
 - Snap list show/hide added to Layout Options
 - Fixed flyer trigger so it does not slow down animation

21/03/2017
 - Initial Release


Please download the latest nightly build of Attract Mode

For the sake of statistics may I know what resolutions you are running Attract Mode in?

Oh :) I was hoping no one will ask for a vertical layout, but here we go. Will think about this later.

For vertical, there is a lot of space not focused on... At least my setup... The Marquee... And stuff... But if someone bakes up one better than I'm using...I won't be upset.

It's super fluid on my i5-2500K. No frame drops even during fast scrolling. The only requirement is an SSD for your snaps (preferably scaled to the size displayed in theme) and videos as HDD is a huge bottleneck for any AM theme

FLAT or ROUNDED?

     

The difference is subtle. Gradients on top and bottom bars, a little shadow on the list box, less shadow from the snaps bar.

I'm realigning every single element now to make sure it's scaling nicely on all resolutions ( excluding vertical atm )
