Theme compatibility Stress

Recommended Posts

Anyone have trouble finding good themes for systems on Android or is it just me being stupid?

Not sure I'd say stupid, but picky?  looking for something specific?    Most of the 'golden/approved' Hyperspin-fe community themes have been tested and work well.    

Themes that have aimed to be 'different' with substantial uses of Flash may run into more issues.

The wheel is currently (largely) fixed so themes that try to move everything around won't work.

yeah probably picky is right!!

 

Nothing specific, i probably abnormal in that way just trying to get a completish setup and figure out what works and doesn't.

 

Many of the 16x9 themes are a pain. Im just going to plough through everything and test them

Just go into the themes and remove the swf files, they will then work.

Yeah it's cool I got pointed to a flash decompiler so I can extract the images to png's and get them all working.

Just want my setup to be the best it can be really. I'm just going to plod through and try to fix as much as takes my fancie. Main menu and system defaults are all I really want.

It's wierd, I'm using a version of the aeon13 theme that i modified a bit to work on andorid and that works fine.  All those themes have swfs in them.

That's the one, but it doesn't work horizontally.  HS for android doesn't support that yet.  I can probably upload the systems I did, but there weren't that many. I'm gonna ask the author permission first.

I opened one of the themes in hypertheme then saved it out.  It loaded fine but the overlay for the video and scrolling text for the system info was wrong. So I went back and modified it till it worked. Once I had one working perfectly I just copied the theme.xml from the fixed zip to all the rest and they just worked.  Then I had to go in and render out all the system videos to mp4 because the flv's wouldn't load.

 

 

 

 

This is the theme I modified in case there's any confusion:   http://www.hyperspin-fe.com/topic/5401-aeon-nox13-wip

Yeah didn't even try because I assumed it wouldn't work vertical. If you have a way or chance to do a preview vid. That would be really good to see.

It's wierd how some swf things work perfect and some don't. Guess it's just how they are coded.

I making a video now, I did a handful of the systems and I use one generic game theme.  Looks nice tho.

Here's the video

 

 

The basics of the theme work. The scrolling swf description of the systems and the animated swf backgrounds load fine.  I just had to fix some alignment issues on those. Obviously it doesnt work with the horizantal wheel but vertical looks nice enough. It probably could look even better if the wheels I used matched his theme, but i kinda like the system logos as is. As for the default game theme the as3 dark13 used to pull game info didn't work so I took his psd and made a quick and dirty mock up of a default game theme.  My theme is all over the place you'll see in the video most of it is the aeon theme but I kept some old HS themes that I liked.  On a friends shield I set him up with the complete set of themes I bothered to fixed so it looks nice and unified on his.   And I also made a Shield tv theme and video which you'll see in the stream.  No scrolling text tho because I don't own flash.

That's actually looks really good.

Maybe worth posting in darks thread, they may have some simple tips to clean it up.

I will probably give it a crack in a few months!! So much to do

I use the shield controller special art so would prob remove the Xbox one and put shield in the middle of the banner
