Title: AM High Score HD (Hi-Res) Theme 2.7 (Finial Build)
Post by: kent79 on March 01, 2021, 04:08:25 AM
The multi system theme is light, powerful & easy management. You can download & extract it for installation. Since there is many retro systems and I don't have much time to make the resources for each one such as snap, music ... So you may need to make it by yourself. But don't worry, I have provided psd file for you.   

Please let me know if you have any issue. Hope everyone enjoy it! Thank you

Title: Re: AM High Score HD (Hi-Res) Theme 2.0 (Finial Build)
Post by: kent79 on March 27, 2021, 06:56:11 PM
Finally, I got how to sort by AltTitle for Japanese Lanuage, please follow as below step.

1. Download the latest theme pack

2. Edit attract.cfg file, only create "All", "Japanese" filter like as below for each display system. This is very important

Code: [Select]
#
display ANIME MUSIC VIDEO
layout               AMHS2
romlist              AMV
in_cycle             yes
in_menu              yes
filter               All
filter               Japanese
sort_by              AltTitle

3. Or The pack having a "default-display.cfg" file, all & japanese filter will be defalt format on next new display

4. At last, on the theme, when you select Japanese lanuage in option, it will auto jump to japanese filter page.

I like this theme a lot, very nice usage of effects in both the system selections screen as well as the game select screen. I've downloaded the (latest?) layout from your dropbox in the OP. There are a couple of things I would really like to know how you have achieved it:

1) the black text outline on the gametitles. I have similar functionality in the theme I'm working on but it is based on a shader. I dont see any shaders in your code, how did you create the effect?

2) the pulsing outline on the game titlles. I'm guessing it uses the same technique as the outline code but adds an animation somewhere?

 PS. are you on discord as well?

Yes, There is no any special skills, just be a trickly.

The magic is  :P

1. Great a new surface and then add game titlles in there
Code: [Select]
local surface_bgText = fe.add_surface( 1920, 1080 );

2. Add animation for game titlles surface
Code: [Select]
animation.add( PropertyAnimation(surface_bgText,   {when = Transition.StartLayout, property = "color", start = { red = 0, green = 0, blue = 255 }, end = { red = 3, green = 200, blue = 255 }, time = 300, delay = 100, pulse=true }));

Post by: kent79 on July 03, 2021, 05:26:06 PM
Update to v2.7
I am thinking for a long time how to easy add favourite game in the game list. This update is my finial concept. You don't need to setup add/remove favourite button. It will be fully automatically.

The favourite icon (*) will be added in game list when hit rate icon is greater than 2 stars. It means if the game's played count is greater than 5 times.

Anyway, it may not fully meaning of favourite game icon, it should be called hit rate game icon. But you don't need to setup extra button for add/remove favourite. It makes the theme keeping clean & easy control.
