|Ce frontend multi-systèmes a été mis à jour. Les améliorations sont les suivantes:
Update 3 is here with some great news, the search games panel is back next to the games filters tool bar were it belongs! I had to resort to voodoo magic to accomplish this miracle...
Panel frames settings expanded. You can choose between 3 modes: disbled, single border, double border. You can even change their colors in night mode. You might need to reconfigure the frame settings again.
Status bar colors settings for the games list, Preferences screen, was split in two sets, one for the light mode (Games List page), and another for the night mode (Night Mode page). There's a Copy button in the night mode set so you can copy status bar colors colors from the light mode.
Several updates were made to the night mode, more options for color customization and even more drawing bugs were fixed. You can change games list frame color and even disable it. Same for images panel frame.
The game documents panel now have a 7 pixels border, just like the images panel. Good for those who use image splitters with the same color as the background color. You can disable the docs panel border in Preferences screen, Game Docs page.
Last but not least, there's a new feature called Tool Bar Overlay Icons Folder (Preferences screen, Games List page). You don't need to overwrite frontend's default overlay icons with your custom icons anymore. All you need is to create a new sub-folder inside \resources\main_icons\overlay\ base folder with the name of your choice and place your custom icons there. Then you can switch between default overlay set and custom sets at will. Feature for both light mode and night mode.
There are some new screenshots in the screenshots page demonstrating the awesome powers of the dark side, err... night mode.
Thanks to Fabian Leonel for making them. They look fantastic. I'll update the rest of the screenshots when I can. You can contribute with frontend screenshots as well. Just make sure they are in PNG format with no compression for maximum picture quality.
