eMixedNiteMC - A tweaked version of eMixedNite - MCC321 - 09-04-2021

eMixedNiteMC is a tweaked version of eMixedNite that add support for video trailer in the background
using Extra Metadata Loader plus some other changes. You should definitly read the post of the Original Theme
before installing this one. All credits should go to the author eminaguil. Both Grid and Detail view are very alike,
only the GameList changes. Look at the bottom of this post for a KnownBugs \ FAQ section.

How to install


Step 1: Install the theme
Double-click or drag and drop the theme file in Playnite to install it.

Link: eMixedNiteMC_2.50


Step 2: Configure your Settings (*Updated with version 2.5*, recommended)
You should use the same settings as me so you can get the desired result.
I strongly recommend that you use vertical cover for better compatibility.
(But you can adjust the settings to use other forms of cover)

Link: Playnite Settings.rar


Step 3: Install the title font (Optional)
You will also need the font I use to have the upper case letter style in the title. (Font found in the SummerNite Theme)
You can install it by just clicking the .ttf file but you will need to do it each time you restart your computer.
To fix this, you need to add the font to the registry too. You can do so by clicking the file called InstallFont.

Link: eMixedNiteMC Font.rar


Final Step: Set-up your platform banners (recommended)
The theme will need you to set your banners for each Platform in order to load the banner correctly anywhere.
I made a little collection so you don't need to search them all. To apply a banner, open the Library Manager with "CTRL+W"
and apply a banner for each platform by clicking on "Select Cover" in the cover section. The banners for each Launcher(Library)
are already included in the theme. Most banners come from this post and all credits goes to the different authors.
You can also add icon to your platform and they will appear on top of your Platform Banner if you desactivate Library Banner.
Icon for each Library are also included in the theme. (I changed the PSP banner because most PSP cover image are less wide than normal.)

Link: Platform Banners.rar


Conclusion:
eMixedNiteMC work in most way the same as eMixedNite and the same plugins are supported as well. You will 
see below the list of all the plugins this theme use. Thanks to darklinkpower for letting me use his code
from the Stardust theme that integrate the video trailer in eMixedNiteMC and finally a big fat thanks to eminaguil for
his awesome work and for letting me modify his theme. Look at the bottom of this post for a KnownBugs \ FAQ section.

Thank you so much for sharing this! All the work you and the community put into it is awesome. It looks amazing!  Heart


RE: eMixedNiteMC - A tweaked version of eMixedNite - voixluna - 09-05-2021

Nice theme! I've always loved both Stardust and eMixedNite, and this looks like it's love child lol. Just wanna point out though that in the Details view there's this big space in between the link panes & the Achievements pane, which seems out of place so it might concern y'all:

[attachment=1858]

Other than that (and the lack of logo w/c is too bad), the theme is perfect and what I've actually been trying to achieve so good job!


RE: eMixedNiteMC - A tweaked version of eMixedNite - Alowen - 09-05-2021

When i install the theme, the whole top part is missing: the playbutton etc, time played, the links. If i change to regular emixed night its all there.

Try these settings in Settings --> Appearance --> Details View

Ill work on the logo when I have some time for it.Big Grin  At first I wanted to keep them but it was bothering me and did not want to put time on it cause I dont use them.

Yes I forgot to mention it, its a bug with the fonction that let you remove the top part to better watch the trailer. Im still trying to figure this out, but its fine after downloading the metadata! So you can either turn on the "Download metadata after importing games" or you can still access the edit panel by pressing the shortcut F3 or right-clicking on it in the list.

Gotcha! It looks good now so thanks a lot! I'm also trying to figure out how to add the logo so no pressure on you (though I'm extremely noob to xaml and all, so god knows when I'll figure it out lol) but if you can spare me the headache and do it in the future I would love you and this theme forever lol. Thanks again for sharing this theme to us


RE: eMixedNiteMC - A tweaked version of eMixedNite - flow - 09-06-2021

Thanks for the theme! I was wondering if it's possible to get the platform banner in details view like the original eMixedNite. This is how it looks in the original.


RE: eMixedNiteMC - A tweaked version of eMixedNite - eminaguil - 09-07-2021

Nice theme, I like the mix,..
Added to my themes


RE: eMixedNiteMC - A tweaked version of eMixedNite - KimaRo - 09-11-2021

Damn, fixed all of the problems I have with eMixedNite but removed one of the biggest features I also want, having the logo integrated.
