Thanks, well.... i am working in some performances issues, testing on a Rpi 3 B+ all runs fine, but i have to optimize for Rpi 3....  the old Room theme is LIVE, i mean, light of room changes with the hour of the day.... it uses a lot of pngs changing ligth, and light affects to boxes too, its not a  hard code work, photoshop work instead.

This theme also includes background music or effects, for example i want to listen rain effect with the wheather outside is raining... but i need to investigate how to work with that plugin from layout.

Arcade room layouts uses Video Background ... this also is not a complicate code work, but still need some help ,  for example, i need some script to stop crazy scroll list when you press down or up for a long time... it is about performanze issue.. be patient, i started with all this a few days ago, even coding ;)

Hello, thank you for your interest, backgrounds I copied after buying the application $ 20, but I do not know how, I received an email from MGalaxy warning me.... so... I'm waiting for the waters to calm down, maybe modify some elements of the art,... , any 3d modeller could make some room and light changes easilly ... but...

mGalaxy is available as a free or ‘Premium’ version. So why upgrading to the ‘Premium’ version?

I guess I can see why they would want to email you. My thing is; if they're that worried/upset about it, why don't they offer it for the Pi?

Also, when you say without the backgrounds - do you mean the whole graphical full screen image of the TV with the clock and the posters in the background? And the whole arcade room?

Thanks again for all of the hard work!

Windows and linux are two totally different things. Attractmode happens to work on both because its based on a multi platform framework. The author already stated he wpuld have to dp a complete rewrite of mgalaxy.

No I get that - my point was; why doesn’t mGalaxy just code it for AM? If takoni was able to write, what seams to be, about 90% of it for AM all by himself then surely a paid service can afford to port it for AM (and that’s not to minimize takoni’s great work.)

mGalaxy won’t answer anyone on their forums over the last 3 months, but they’ll go after a lone user for providing a service that they refuse to provide themselves.

Idk - just seems a little uncouth that’s all. I’m sure mGalaxy is legally within their rights - it’s just not a good look.

nice to see how ya did the clock update in the theme....

3 or more years ago i put out a theme..   using their premium...  right here...no one said shit..

its back when they were even smaller...  i posted up on their fourm  ..on how to modify their themes
and they took it down....  and canceled me,   all i did was show others how to open their themes so you could dump all the grafix
witch at that time just taking the theme.what ever it was and renaming it to .RAR   ... they changed that soon after

i have a feeling this is going to surface....at some point,,,  any hoo good effort..

mater of ,, just found one of the pics from it   

   

i should re do it but better :o
