Here is a very very early screenshot.
i didnt work much on the design yet. instead i worked on memory efficiency and speed. the left "sidebar" can be hidden (and is so by default), to allow for a 4 column view.

tomorrow ill add a "options" window in which you can set the api key and choose between sources (steamgriddb and local folder for now)

after that i just have to implement the image fetching and downloading from steamgriddb and then i can focus on making everything a little prettier than it is now.

no, thats the resolution **required** to work. My tool downloads images in any aspect ratio and squishes it to 1:1
means if you would download a vertical icon (2:3 works with my theme) and open the file on the pc, it would look distorted. but the vertical icon theme takes this 1:1 image and stretches it back to a 2:3 resolution so it looks normal.
Ah of course. I remember from the other icon thread that stretched images are put into 1:1 resolution and the theme is altering them internally. Alright. Guess you will post instructions on how to make those images when you release your theme.
Or is it as simple as making a 2:3 image in Photoshop and "resize" it to a 1:1 resolution?

usually its that simple, yes. just make sure its a jpg under 150kb with 256x256px.
This will work with any theme, just my vertical icon theme needs a 2:3 "base" image. any other theme can use 1:1 base images

@shigenojay do you have a repo on GitHub for these? I'd love to see them and be able to choose other icons people make.
If you setup the icon repo like mine & @HoTsHoTz79 repo it can be pulled directly into the nx-gic app

exactly. i have to remake everything - which is not a problem at all. i just hoped i can rewrite my homebrew before that. but for that i am also missing the time due to other, much larger projects taking up my time. I think ill give the theme a try this weekend but i cant promise anything because this stupid windows 7 laptop is old as fuck and many tools just refuse to work on it.

Allrighty, i made some plans and ive done some prep work to get started again.
there some flaws and feature requests with the old homebrew which would require me to switch to the yoga branch of borealis and i have no patience for that. instead of working around the issues in the old homebrew, i will rewrite it from scratch with ImGui.

Here is an early "mockup" i made (its made in paint, nothing fancy - just visual reference for me). Obviously it will be more pretty than the mockup and i'll fill the gaps with some data for the eye. UI is browsable by touch & gamepad, unlike borealis which has no touch support.


After thats done, i will rework the theme (if this crappy laptop doesnt freak out trying to do so). If the hardware works, it should be done relatively quickly.
