Console/device inspired themes
« on: March 11, 2018, 07:21:36 AM »
Hello there.
Since all systems can use different themes now, I was thinking would it make sense to have themes with device-like color schemes? I like the simplicity of the normal blue/brown themes, but just maybe it would be nice to have something more recognizable.

Like Gamecube emulator with purple/indigo background color, grey picture frame, c-stick yellow game select text frame and a-button green text.
Or Xbox games (or more like Windows system with Xbox games) could have black background with neon-green picture frame and text
Or Famicom/NES with white background and redwine-red frames and text frames
And so on. Even for PC could be something black/grey like the cases usually are.
The generally gray/black SNES, PSXs and whatnot might be lil tougher but I guess even those have subtle differences at least in button colors. I'm sure not all million systems can have their own version but is an idea

The PSX-grey-retro things for PS4 always sell like hotcakes

Hi turtleblizzard,
You'll be happy to learn that I have been working  lately on what you're requesting! :)...and indeed, yes, with the next version you'll be able to choose your background/background light/screen/list... colors.
I would ask you a little more patience and you'll get exactly what you want! ;)

Consoles, controllers and themes that try mimic old classics
