[WIP] Aura 4K
« 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)

SCREENSHOTS

* Click on the images for view at 100% resolution





VIDEOS

* Click on the image to see the youtube video



* This layout requires adapted and edited artworks
  • Central image at 1120x1080 resolution (without any letter or logo)
  • Left and right images = Central image with 15% Gaussian blur
  • Logos in PNG with transparency at 740 x740 resolution.
  • Three screenshots at 1280 x 720 resolution.
  • Video files are used for play music of the selected game.

* Work in progress (redesigning control settings screen and other stuff)

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

Test 2

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:



Soon more information and videos ;)

* I leave an attachment so you can see it in better quality.
