Hey, I really like the theme so far with logos, videos and duplicate game finder integration.
What I'd really like to change though, is the big red "Play" button, and I can't find a way to change a color of it.
Is there some setting in Theme Modifier that I'm missing?


RE: Mythic | Theme inspired by Epic Games Launcher - sheepbeep - 02-15-2022

The red color for "Play" is really jarring.

Also, the colorful icons from Stardust would be neat.

Another thing I discovered: There is no (theme editor) setting for configuring the darkening of the background picture in the details view.

If you need support, want to request a feature, report a bug or simply ask a question, please use the means mentioned in the main post.

The reason for this is because it's very difficult and time consuming for me to check, keep track and reply in all the different threads for all the themes and extensions I have in the forums, which are over 30 now. I hope you can be understanding of this and I'm sorry for any inconvenience this can cause.
