ES themes ready for favorite, all games, recently played and custom-collections



  • I take regards to this thread @pjft

    Which themes are updated for using the 3 new systems

    1. auto-allgames
    2. auto-lastplayed
    3. auto-favorites

    This should also be an encouragement for people who may using older themes to update them or ask the theme creator to go back to design studies.

    Some themes also include the 4th VS (Virtual System) ... custom-collections. That will be is the next step in ES development and will hopefully reach release state asap in a few weeks :) So no need to hurry up!

    07/23/17 The custom collection-ß-phase has opened. Please do your contribution and bug reporting in this thread

    08/18/2017 The 4th system is released now :) Thank you very much to @pjft

    As far is I know only a few systems were updated Please correct me if I am wrong
    Right now, more and more system will be updated! Great work!

    I just installed and prechecked some Themes I already knew that they are being updated. Surly this list does not contain all changed themes!
    Please feel free to contribute changes or let me correct things in my postings :)



  • @cyperghost -- I just updated my two themes today to now include the new custom-collections theme subfolders.

    So, both Steampunk and HurstyBlue are ready for the new 4th VR system.

    @cyperghost

    For completeness sake, you might want to add Carbon to the list.



  • I just want to say thanks to @cyperghost for being the one to actually update IO.



  • Thanks for starting this thread!



  • I tried updating my carbon theme but it still doesn't have the virtual systems. Anyone know how I can get the version that supports it? Thanks


  • Global Moderator

    @martin88

    Did you also update Emulation Station? If so, are you able to enable the feature from the 'start' options menu?



  • @mediamogul Yes I updated emulationstation - I see the new 'collection' option in the menu now but when I go and enable it I get the message about the theme (carbon) not supporting it. It still works, just the image for the virtual systems is plain text.

    I browsed the path '/etc/emulationstation/themes/carbon' and I don't see the 3 auto-* folder in there.

    I tried another theme 'hurstyblue' and the virtual systems' images are all there and works fine.

    I also tried uninstall and reinstall the theme from esthemes but the carbon theme it pulls still doesn't have the image for collections. Is the carbon theme updating pulling its data from:
    'https://github.com/RetroPie/es-theme-carbon' ? If so it looks like the auto-* system isn't in there yet?



  • @mattrixk said in ES themes ready for favorite, all games, recently played and custom-collections:

    I just want to say thanks to @cyperghost for being the one to actually update IO.

    It was a real pleasure and it's unbelievable how much time must be invested to get a good looking theme. So creating a theme is really hard work - nothing in comparison in creating a few icons (that were already created and just need to be arranged). So my deepest respect to the theme creaters out here.

    @martin88
    If you read newest pull request it should work and mine version show the three new system as BIG RED TEXT

    @martin88

    I get the message about the theme (carbon) not supporting it. It still works...

    I got the same message, but as you say, it works.

    just the image for the virtual systems is plain text.

    The images will come soon. I believe @UDb23 is working on them.

    I also tried uninstall and reinstall the theme from esthemes but the carbon theme it pulls still doesn't have the collections.

    That's strange, I updated this way and it had the collections functionality.



  • @mediamogul Ah I see so it's intended that the carbon theme's collection be plain text for now with images to come later. Thanks for the clarification. (I was expecting the image to be there for the default theme after the update.)



  • @mediamogul said in ES themes ready for favorite, all games, recently played and custom-collections:

    I believe @UDb23 is working on them.

    Yes. Latest proposal for approval here.



  • @cyperghost thank you for organizing this thread

    My TFT theme is updated now with support for all 4 VS - https://github.com/anthonycaccese/es-theme-tft

    Working on my CRT theme next



  • I don't know who created it or maintains it, but I've been praying for a while now that someone would update the Carbon Nometa theme to have video support. Now that this new feature is available if it was updated to have video support and then these new categories, it would be my 100% end all favorite theme. Sadly I can't use it still because my whole set up has videos now. Does anyone know who could do that? They would be my new best friend lol.


  • administrators

    @cjax08 anyone can do it. Source is available on GitHub.

    I originally set it up but I don't have the time to maintain it but I'd welcome pull requests



  • @herb_fargus oh that's awesome. I wish I knew how to do all that then. I would try it myself, but I don't think that's something I could handle. I'll either have to wait or figure out if there's a way to remove meta data from the basic carbon theme and center the box art/video like in the no meta.

    Cygnus and Eudora-Updated are both ready to go now.
