Magpie PN9
I've updated DanDavis872's Magpie theme for Playnite 9, adding support for the new features and partially restoring SuccessStory integration.
The creator has not been active on Discord or GitHub lately, they've seemingly disappeared. I've updated this theme because it's very popular and would have died with PN8. I have no interest in perpetually maintaining this, someone please take over if you're able and willing.

Thank you so much! This was the reason to hold on pn8

Cheers, one of the best themes I've seen, nice to see it on PN9


RE: Magpie PN9 - sdcfried - 11-02-2021

Probably the best theme on here, thank you!

What is the difference between the two downloads (not GBV vs GBV .. what does it stand for?)

Would it be too much work to include the extended stuff from the Duplicate Hider theme, eg displaying with drop down the game variants?

Vertical spacing in Details view is borked.

Checkbox for Settings -> Details View -> Vertical Spacing to game details is locked to the value before installing the theme. You can enter any value there, but after clicking on "save" it is not saved.

GBV = "Grid Banner Variant"
But I can see no difference between both themes.  Undecided

You have to tab out of the value box and then save. This works for me.


The theme is nice. I didn't know this theme before.
But how can I remove the game title from the middle of the banner?  Confused

The chief difference (for my money) is that the details panel opens vertically in grid view in GBV. I believe it also adds support for adding banners on the grids, but I don't remember how that works (maybe check the original Magpie thread.)

I believe you need to edit Constants.xaml and change the value of the "TitleTextVisibility" flag from "Visible" to "Collapsed"
This particular theme doesn't appear to play nice with Theme Modifier unfortunately, so you can't toggle it in the UI. I assume that's a legacy issue from the original Magpie. I think it predated TM.

Yes. There is no button for the ThemeModifier on top when Magpie is enabled. :/

Yes. This works. Thanks.


RE: Magpie PN9 - eric.png - 11-17-2021

This theme does not let me adjust the logo size and alignment from Extra Metadata Tools. Any solutions?


RE: Magpie PN9 - DanDavis872 - 11-27-2021

Thanks. Life changes and all that crap. I appreciate you stepping up.
