Title: [WIP] Aura 4K
Post by: iGarikoitz on June 18, 2017, 04:49:44 PM
INFO
This is my last review of Aura design for retroFE called Aura 4K. It is a layout with a native resolution of 4K, for use with a monitor or television with 4K resolution.
By popular request will come in two native resolutions: (3840 x 2160) and (1920 x 1080)

Thanks to @Pieter Hulshoff, for including the new feature <onMenuIdle>. Here you have a video / image to show to see its utility.

Very impressive indeed! Looks like a lot of effort will go into getting all the art though, or will it?

No problem, google is my friend :)

How about the implementation of .info files for games? Do you intend to do it or do you discard the idea?. I need it to make the implementation of the controls screen much easier for the community. Once I have this finished I will release "aura" on GitHub.

Just curious on the controls thing.  Cpwiz will do per game controller images.  It can batch images out per game.  I used it for mame on my setup.  Just an idea if per game info not an option.  Themes look great btw.  Good luck.

Of course I will implement it; just been a little occupied with pi3 support. It will be added before too long. 😀

Edited the first page to show my latest work. From now on I will only work on this design (Aura 4K), because it is much simpler, intuitive and beautiful than the original aura. Everything I have learned with aura, I applied it in a more functional way in Aura 4K

I'm really sorry for those who expected the original aura design to come out. Designing and editing two layout and all of artworks takes a lot of time out of my life and I am not willing to leave other things aside because I am 100% of my free time designing for retrofe.

Damn, that looks good! We really should look into mass converting and creating artwork for this theme.

I am finalizing the details and optimizing the images so that it works as fluid as possible. As soon as I finish the optimization phase I will explain what artworks and what modifications are needed to add the games to this Layout.

I've worked hard over the weekend to redesign the controls screen. I've put a screenshot on the first page of the thread. What do you think?

I like it. It's a lot of work pulling the artwork together, but perhaps it gathers a following like Aeon Nox on HyperSpin did.

RetroFE will automatically scale any layout to your screen settings, so that should be no issue.

I have returned with the batteries charged after a long time disconnected.

Here is a preview of what I am doing:

I hear the guys from CoinOps might be interested in helping out with artwork for this theme. They're busy with a RetroFE based release called Forgotten Worlds.

Aura 4K (2018) only needs one artwork per game to create an entry.

Central image: 1120x1080 resolution (without any letter or logo)
Left and right images = central image cropped at 450x1080 resolution + (10% Gaussian blur)

I keep polishing small details (size and alignments of some elements, filters of the images, etc.)

I have also redesigned the screen where the screenshots of the game appear after waiting a certain time in a selected game:

Soon I will upload a video in 4K resolution so you can see it moving. Thanks for your support  ;)

Looks cool! :) Have you considered making one of the screenshots a video in stead?

Good morning!

For the moment I am using the videos to play the background music of the selected game, so with the captures it is enough for me.


New captures with some other change in the design to make them even more minimalist. The frontend will have a mini presentation of the controls before going to the games menu.

Have you given any thought on releasing your work or is it meant only for your own setup? I still think it looks beautiful. :)

My intention is to publish it this year. I still do not know the specific date, but be sure that I will give everything so that it is up to your expectations.

I would like to share with you a new video of Aura 4K where the controls of the frontend are explained before starting to use it.
