Step 3 switch to desktop mode:

Step 4 switch to full screen mode, the reason it needs to switch to desktop mode is to release the full screen files so they can be modified:

RE: DKG Theme Modifier - For use with Themes by DavidKGriggs - NiZEDGE - 04-29-2021

this doesn't appear to work with your XBOXSERIESish v1.2.0 as changing name and colour and light / dark mode has no effect

edit: it only appears to work if you also have the PS5ish fully updated also

otherwise im not sure

I confirm that the theme modifier does not work, the text in the theme card is not changed, I have already deleted the old modifiers and the customization in the ps5ish modifier is missing.
I did some tests and the text does not change in ps5ish default mode

You can only use customise PS5ish when default mode is turned off. That was the same in the PS5ish Modifier

Yes indeed it is, I was wrong thanks.

I would like to propose one thing, since you have grouped all your themes in a single modifier, what do you think of adding the possibility to modify / change the backgroud music and the sounds of the various themes in an easier and more intuitive way? What I mean is that if I stay on the PS5ish theme and switch to the xboxish theme I quickly, intuitively and easily change / remove the backgroung music, theme sounds and even the dynamic theme background, all from the modifier, you might succeed to do such a thing? Would be great


RE: DKG Theme Modifier - For use with Themes by DavidKGriggs - StrickerBRA - 05-04-2021

I've deleted the previous PS5ish install before updating, and also deleted the modifier, so clean install of both. The theme itself works fine and even work with the ExtraMetaData, but in desktop mode the Custimize tab is blank, so i can't tweak the way i've configured before the update. I've screwed something on the process?

Customise is blank when Default Mode is turned on. This was the same in the previous Modifier. Turn off Default Mode and then you can customise the theme more.

Oh i've never noticed, it came off by default previously

RE: DKG Theme Modifier - For use with Themes by DavidKGriggs - sheepbeep - 05-18-2021

General Suggestion
Add a "theme reset" option to reset (and clean up) the theme(s) if something goes wrong. Also "add a Yes / No Are you sure?" dialog box with description what will be done to it.

Bug
- SIMPLEish theme 1.0.3 (downgraded from 1.0.4)
- DKG Theme Modifier 1.0.5

Description:
Icons are no longer displayed and the Simpleish logo in the left upper corner; even after removing the DKG theme modifier JSON. This is not recoverable, my guess is that the theme modifier changed the icons to banners, and as there are none (yet) nothing is displayed.

How?
I enabled "Enabled Banners", "Glass Effect", disabled "Game Details Blur", enabled "Game Details Solid".

Solution (my guess)?
If you remove the checkbox on "Enable Banners", the icon display should be re-enabled.

Thanks for the suggestions.
The issue you're having actually seems like Extra Metadata Tools has not integrated with the theme correctly. Have you had the pop up box? And then clicked OK and restarted the theme?


RE: DKG Theme Modifier - For use with Themes by DavidKGriggs - sheepbeep - 05-18-2021

Addendum: I only recovered by deleting the SIMPLEish theme and reinstalling it.

Another suggestion:
Background
It would really be neat to have the option to set a fixed background image ("enter path"?) or by platform and/or library?

Theme Name left upper corner
optionally replace the "SIMPLEish" in the left upper corner with username and configurable picture (and dont recut it to a circle, let squares be square, but let it be affected by the rounding option)

Another Bug:
Button prompts are in reverse order
(Playstation) Square is to abort / exit and Cross is activate (make it configurable to reverse order... please)

Yes, I did as instructed.

On the first launch the icons and logo of SIMPLEish were displayed, but after playing around a bit (my guess is activating the banners) the icons would not come back.

The Banners option only effects platform Icons going onto the covers. It won't effect Logos added by Extra Metadata Tools or the Profile Picture added by Extra Metadata Tools. Have you added your logos via Extra Metadata Tools?

RE: DKG Theme Modifier - For use with Themes by DavidKGriggs - CriticalComposer - 05-26-2021

Using SIMPLEish with DKG removed the game logos from the sidebar. I ran just the theme for a few days and didn't have issue but I wanted to remove the blur on the Game Details screen and after installing DKG and unchecking the blur box the logos are gone.
