Absolutely gorgeous. Could you discuss with the creator of this theme to add the same improvement he aded to the "info" panel ?

All theme creators should add this feature.

All theme creators should add this feature.
What exact things do you mean?
In general, while some people may like it, I don't for the following reasons:
- Cover: It doesn't make sense to add the cover there when it's already showing in the library view
- Details layout: The information panel there is basically the same panel used in details view. GridView needs more width in the library view (Covers), which makes it more limited to add information. Add that you can open extra panels (Explorer and Filter panels) and you'll see what happens. It will get worse if you use a custom DPI or use a lower resolution. That must be the reason why that panel is in vertical format in Playnite by default. Here's how it looks in my screen with all panels opened: https://i.imgur.com/gjZDXw5.png

Hello, great job with this theme! I like it very much.
However there is only one thing that disturbs me, the covers in grid view are not rounded .
Do you think to introduce this feature in the next updates ?

How do you make Details View's background image displayed like in the first screenshot?

Enable Blur in Settings->Appearance->Blur background


RE: Stardust | Theme inspired by GOG Galaxy 2.0 - Bungsai - 12-24-2020

I know about blurring, but how do you hide the image as a banner/header while it still visible as a blurred background? sorry for the confusion.

I made a fork of it, has some layout changes and more interactions https://github.com/simeonradivoev/Stardust
I might not end up making PR for all the changes in the future, so just throwing it out here.
