Blueprint 1.0 (Finally!)
« on: October 28, 2017, 09:14:17 PM »
This is the "Unnamed" theme I was working on way back when...  ;D





Right now it only has a default horizontal design. The intent is for it to support many resolutions, but additional changes could be added in the config.nut file and added to the UserConfig.

It also makes use of the keyboard-search module I just released:



The artwork makes use of PreserveArt and PanAndScan and you can customize what images/videos are used, and whether it will fit, fill and panandscan. I've included these in the zip file.

It has a bunch of options to configure info displayed:


Additional color themes could be added in the themes.nut and UserConfig as well.

It also includes a matching Displays Menu selector:



I've attached a download of the current version, but you can watch for updates here:

Hello liquid8d,

I like your keyboard-search module very much. 2 more things would like to request. Thanks

1. Could you update your module to replace current plugin search function

2. Your keyboard-search function missing "Enter" button.  Could you add it back in further version.

Do you mean replace the existing keyboardsearch plugin? I don't think I wrote that one, but if this one is found stable enough, it'd be great to update it. I know I played with making it a plugin before, but I think there were reasons why I went with a module, but I can look into it.

Yes, you are right - no enter. As of now, it expects you to use the search key as a toggle to return to the layout. Adding an enter key makes sense though :)

One more advice for searching function. Could you add starting point (eg. underline) and modify input object from Align.Left to Align.Centre. Thanks.

Nice theme.  I really like the simplicity of it.  One question though.  Is there a specific line to adjust the opacity of the background overlay?  It's so dark so snaps/flyers are barely visible.

thanks, yes that should have been part of the theme - it is in the config.nut under bg_overlay, alpha is currently 210 - you'll want to go lower to see the artwork better.

Good job. Nice theme  :D

But I have found a small problem but quite annoying: When you are searching, if you delay a bit, the snap appears full screen and you no longer see the search. Either you are fast or you can not search.  :-\

There seems to be a problem when you search for a exact game and there is only one entry in the search results ... the logo/snap are not updating (see pic)
searched for "cada" in my favs
