  1. WoodPanels (beta)

    WoodPanels has the old school retro feel of playing games on an old TV in a room with bad, green carpeting, but golden wooden paneled walls.  The video game console or platform appears above or beside the television to match that look and feel.  It is paired with a set of 8-bit fonts to complete the experience.
    Designed for 16:9 screens on a 1080p monitor (need feedback on different resolutions) Platform navigation features device images for 37 platforms. Games list view features device images for 33 platforms. Consoles are paired with one of four different TVs from the same decade they were released (70s, 80s, 90s, 00s) Trailer:
    Known issues:
    BigBox options menu has the Atari font unintentionally. To Do:
    Fill out missing device images on the Games list view. (IN PROGRESS - slow but steady) Use a variety of TV images to correspond to what might have been used with the console. (DONE!) Build out compatibility for inclusion within BigBox themes list by adding requisite views. Consider adding an alternate view that shows off the box art somewhere in the list view. Explore an alternate view showing game boxes on shelves instead of a list view.

  2. Neon Deluxe Arcade - Final (Big Box Theme)

    Note: This thread will not be pushed to the front in the "whats new" section once updated in the future, if you want notifications for future updates be sure to follow this page by using the follow button in the upper right corner.
    NEON DELUXE ARCADE - FINAL
    (NOTE: ERRORS IN CERTAIN LANGUAGE FORMATS, SET TO ENGLISH UNTIL RESOLVED)
    -----------------------------------------------------
    CREDITS
    Huge thanks goes out to @y2guru for his Community Theme Creator Software and his endless personal help, also he created the animated wheels for this theme! @Hexxxer for the original inspiration of his FutureState theme. @Rincewind for the inspiration on his use of the icons. Thanks guys!
    -----------------------------------------------------
    INTRO
    This is the final version of Neon Arcade Deluxe, it's completely rebuild from the ground up. The old theme was slow, I couldn't even run it in 4K but with this rebuild it runs even smoothly in 4K.
    This theme looks the same in any DPI setting now but it's only for 16:9 views. There are 2 versions; the main version has a 24hr clock & the other 12hr.

    _Neon Deluxe Arcade Final.mp4 -----------------------------------------------------
    INSTALLATION
    1. Download the theme from Big Box's theme manager or download the zip file here and place the folder in Launchbox/Themes/
    2. You might need to unblock all the .DLL's in the plugin folder, I usually don't have to though.
    3. I recommend doing the following to speed up Big Box greatly: 
     - Uncheck all Background Images in launchbox/settings/image priorities
     - Set all transitions to "None" in BigBox settings
     - Use the Clean Up media tool in launchbox/tools/Clean Up Media... (this can really speed up lists with thousands of games and duplicate media)
     - Defrag the drive that holds your media files

    Hope you like and enjoy! 🤘

  4. Retro Console - BB Theme, Startup and Shutdown Theme, Pause Theme and more

    Ok, here is version 2 of my Retro Console Theme. This is a MASSIVE overhaul and Includes ANIMATIONS. Thanks to @y2guru and his unending support and development of the 'Community Theme Creator', which now offers an animation tool, I was able to completely rebuild this theme and make it the way I originally intended. Thank You as always my man!
    The original theme without animations can be found here: Retro Console Version 1
    Pretty much every single view has been redone with at least more flare and details, but some of them are totally re-imagined. I have also added several new views and many more platform specific views. All with animations, subtle but informative (hopefully).
    One of the game views that has a smaller monitor window on the right side of the screen now plays a video in a loop of the matching consoles original startup or boot screen. Not all are included as I have not been able to find them on YouTube. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on where to look for more, would be very helpful!
    NEW: Playmode Icons - All custom and added all over the theme.
    NEW: I made a new view that is intended for use with newer consoles like PS3 and XBOX360. Looks good but does not require as much artwork since there is not much available yet.
    ALSO NEW are several controller button packs that can be swapped out to match your setup. These include 4 buttons each and are color coded throughout the theme:
    GREEN = Select RED = Back Blue = Search Yellow = Game info screen To use these you should just download the pack you want and drop it in the following folder: ?\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Theme Anim V2\Media\buttons\. Make sure to overwrite the existing ones. 
    controller buttons - arcade.zip: This is a set of generic arcade buttons that can be used for any setup. Just colored and round. controller buttons - numbered.zip: This is a set of numbered controller buttons (1 - 4) for controllers that have numbered buttons. controller buttons - ps3.zip: This is a set of PlayStation controller buttons  controller buttons - xbox.zip: This is a set of Microsoft XBOX controller buttons  I will gladly take any requests for additional controller buttons as long as they don't require changing the theme. (max of 4 buttons in a pack)
    ALSO:
    @Wanderer189 has made a huge contribution to this theme in the form of several downloadable add-on packs full of clear logos for each platform. These include literally thousands of logos made for each Genre, Playmode, ETC. This is an amazing thing and I thank you for your hard work Wanderer. You are awesome. If you would like to get these logos for your setup they can be found here:
    What is this theme:
    This is a video snap based BigBox theme. Heavily designed around the use and display of video snaps. This theme has over a hundred views including one that offers a different look for each platform including handhelds. There is a large amount of custom graphics and logos and images and icons etc. Hence the large file size. Use the startup and pause themes to complete the seamless setup. (also included here) All icons including stars for 'consumer ratings' and 'ESRB rating' and the new 'playmode icons' are custom and included in the theme file. Use them all you want. I am using the nostalgia platform videos and these are perfect for this theme. I may make my own someday but for now these are Great. @Wanderer189 is currently making videos for every genre and playmode. (you are awesome buddy, thank you so much for all your hard work and contributions to this and other themes) Available Downloads:
    Retro Console Theme Anim V2.zip - This is the entire theme including platform and platform device logos as well as all icons so you don't have to download them individually. This does not include the startup video, startup or pause themes, collection logos, etc. controller buttons - arcade.zip - Arcade panel based controller buttons controller buttons - numbered.zip - Number based controller buttons controller buttons - ps3.zip - PlayStation based controller buttons controller buttons - xbox.zip - XBOX based controller buttons Retro-Console-Pause.zip - The pause theme I made also to match this theme. (screens below) Retro-Console-Startup.zip - The startup and shutdown theme I made to match with this theme. (screens below) Platform Clear Logos.zip - Included in the theme download but also here in case you just want them alone. These were made specifically for this theme. Platform Device Logos.zip - Also made for this theme for the platform view that uses device images. Collection Device Logos.zip -  Made to match this theme for the platform view that uses device images for each collection I use. I can make more upon request. Collection Logos.zip - Same as the platform logos. Made to match so they can be used in this theme. Platform Categories.zip - A bunch of category logos also made to match this theme. Startup Video.zip - A startup video I made just to add to the overall completeness of the theme. Not at all necessary but here if you want it. Retro Console Sound Pack.zip - Again not required but here if you want it. This is what i use in the video below. Just unzip it to your launchbox sounds folder and then select it in BigBox. Platform Original Boot Videos.zip - This is a pack of just the new startuo videos for each console or platform I could find. (included in theme so no need to download unless you want just these) Recommendations:
    Set your Image priorities in Launchbox as follows - Cart Front ( add disc images to the list - this is used in many views in this theme) Set your startup and shutdown time limits in launchbox settings. (mine are: startup=5 sec and shutdown=3.5 sec) I designed this around the Nostalgia Platform Videos. You can use anything but those will fit and line up best. This theme assumes an xbox controller setup: A=Select, B=Back, X=Search, Y=Game Details and Select Button=Change View (not  required) I also set the left bumper to platforms and right bumper to platform categories. (not required but helpful) Get as many Banner, Steam Banner and Marquee images as you can. This theme offers a unique view for all arcade cabinet based games and will use those images. There is also a custom view for systems like Windows that also use them. Future Plans:
    Create a new view that uses the original loading video from each console. (started on 1-3-2020) DONE Complete the white silhouette console and controller images that are used in the startup theme. DONE Add animations to the theme ( @y2guru is working on this ability for his theme creator as we speak and I will update once it is ready) DONE Make platform videos to match this theme (maybe) - In the works How to Install:
    Extract Retro Console Theme.zip to your launchbox themes folder. This includes all the platform and device logos you need and will automatically use them. ( In order to use other logos just delete the ones in this theme folder) You can also use the startup and pause themes to add more of a consistent flow. Drop the startup video (if you want it) in the launchbox videos root folder. This theme currently has over 80 different platforms and includes the matching device logos, collection logos, category logos and more but some of these have to be added manually through launchbox (sorry). I can not figure out how to make them automatic.

  5. Retro Console - BB Theme - Startup Theme - Pause Theme and more

    Here is my first theme. This theme was made almost entirely in @y2guru's theme creator tool that is my absolute favorite community addition. Very cool for people like me who love to design. Thank you for making this y2guru. My intention was to make a seamless theme that felt like a console but offered a very different feel than all the already existing and amazing themes found on this forum. I Hope you like it. Let me know if you need more logos but keep in mind i can only work on this once a week.
    Credits:
    Not sure where to start, I was mostly inspired by @viking and @Rincewind for their contributions and then i found the 'Community Theme Creator' made by @y2guru which changed everything. But most of all, credit should go to Launchbox itself and this entire community. I have used several things i found at this forum but most of this theme was made by me. If I have missed someone I am truly sorry and it was not intentional. Please let me know and I will of course edit this page.

  9. Retrotastic

    Welcome to Retrotastic! A fun little theme hoping to capture childhood memories through the artwork of the systems we know and love.
    The theme comes pre-packaged with over 150 platform/playlist backgrounds. Each one can be customized or replaced altogether. Please read the documentation for more info.
    This theme can also display game specific backgrounds and graphics, check the demo video to see an example of this (look out for the NES section of the video), and view the documentation for how to create and add your own.
    Please read the documentation to add your own flair to this theme! 
    Retrotastic - Documentation.pdf
    This theme comes with a few different views:
    Platform View 1 - A view with a vertical platform wheel
    Platform View 2 - A view with a horizontal platform wheel
    Game View 1 - The main vertical game wheel view. This view determines which type of media a platform has, and displays its appropriate animation.
    Game View 2 - Vertical game wheel with spinning disc based animation (this view is redundant, and only use if a platform is not displaying its spinning disc in Game View 1.
    Game View 3 - Vertical game wheel is basic animations (the most mainstream view).
    Game View 4 - Vertical game wheel with no Box image or Cart/Disc image. Designed to allow your game specific backgrounds/graphics to take center stage.
    Text List View - A text list with box animation
     
    Installation Instructions

    Broskiplays - Creating the idea for this project, along with many platform/playlist backgrounds

  10. Nostalgia - Bedroom (BigBox Theme)

    Nostalgia - Bedroom (an 80's style BigBox theme)
    Ready for something new, mixed together with something a little bit old and familiar? Here is my own 'retro' style version (fork) of the great "Nostalgia" theme, originally created by @eatkinola, whose fantastic themes can also be found here on the launchbox forums. This is a simple 1980's bedroom style version of  that same "Nostalgia" theme with custom-designed layouts, corresponding to various computer, handheld and console systems.  As of now, there are nearly 70 unique systems I've designed, with a few more to come in the near future. There is also an arcade layout included here (mame), although I would highly recommend implementing one of the many other much better arcade-style themes out there instead of this one. That's just my own personal opinion/preference. 
    A few issues:
    Videos/snaps for each game will sometimes offer varied (and undesirable) results in terms of sizing. This is due to the fact that the images and videos available come in a variety of sizes. However, I tried my best to keep everything within the television's screen without too many issues. Also, many but not all systems are available, especially among computer and arcade platforms but there will be a few more added later when I get the chance.
    Important note - this theme will only work with newer versions of Launchbox/Bigbox (after version 9.1). And please don't ask me any questions related to the code of this theme, as I have no knowledge of XAML and mostly edited this theme with my extremely limited knowledge of Photoshop  
    More notes:
    Please go easy on me as this the first theme I've ever uploaded here. But I've put several days of work into this to make it look semi-professional. If you want to get creative and want to add any systems/platforms/playlists which are not included here, go to the "Views\Plugins" folder then you can add it into the Ao.Bigbox.Themer.v3_9_6.dll (text) file. Also, the original Photoshop .psd file is included in the "Views\Images\AVLF\Xtraz" folder if you want to create your own game room style and add or change anything to your heart's content. Have fun with it!
     
    And here's a short video of BigBox showing off the Nostalgia-Bedroom theme

  11. RetroFresh

    This theme was designed to add as little overhead as possible, while giving a clean and simplistic view of the content. To do this I decided on not adding any images at all, and instead used XAML to build all the elements. When zipped, the entire theme comes out around 300KB. RetroFresh works with your own media and uses them as its centerpiece. Hope you guys enjoy.

  13. CoverBox

    The CoverBox project is one where my goal is to recreate retro console's boxart as a BigBox Theme.
    Each theme is designed for 1080p.
    P.S. I created graphic assets for the star ratings. Please feel free to use them in your theme.
    Please note: CoverBox is now merged into 1 theme and now has the minimum requirement of running LaunchBox 9.4 or above.
    Installation Instructions
    Download the CoverBox.zip file. Open the zip file and place the folder into the LaunchBox\Themes folder Select the CoverBox theme in BigBox  
    CoverBox Images
     
    List of Supported Platforms
     
    Thanks
    Most of the themes utilize ListBox Scroll Center for BigBox by @Grila   This theme utilizes Styphelus' System Boxes by @Styphelus

  14. Play Box 3

    Happy New Year 2020 to all

    NOTE THIS THEME IS BUILT FOR STEAM STYLE BANNERS FOR THE FAVOURITES & RECENTLY PLAYED BOX IMAGES. 
    This is Play Box 3, A continuation of Play Box 2. 
    I have redesigned this theme for a more modern look of Steam Big Picture Mode or TV Media Center Graphical User Interfaces.
    All games & apps that have been added as your favourite & recently played now have a Steam Banner style shortcut on the Home Screen for quick access. Platform & Games views now have faded backgrounds for artwork.  
    Included in my theme is alternative control layouts for Microsoft XBOX One & Sony Playstation 4 & a collection of steam Banners for games of various platforms.
    There are 2x Platform views & 6x Game views to choose from all with menu controls, All the videoborder views from my previous Play Box Themes are there.
    Important note**If  the artwork & videoborder views do not display properly for a platform on your system, there will most likely be naming conflicts between your platforms & files in my theme. To fix this issue, you must locate these files in the background & videoborder folders of my Play Box theme then change the names to your actual platforms name.

    Installation 
    Unzip the Play Box 3 folder to your Launchbox /Themes directory. 
    Setting up Steam Banners
    Make sure you set Platform & Game images as Steam Banners within the game options in Launchbox. Then for them to be used in the theme correctly set the priority of the boxes view to prioritise Steam Banners first - if you ever want to revert this it is then simply a case of lowering the priority of the steam banners in the boxes list rather than having to remove or reorganise images. To do this open Launchbox and go to Tools --> Options and in the window that appear select Box Front Properties in the Images section and use the Up button to move the Steam Banners to the top of the list.

    Big thanks to Jason Carr, CriticalCid & RetroHumanoid for there Unified themes which has inspired me to create my videoborder views.
    And a big thanks to BlazingRyuu for his Device Icons which i have slightly edited to scale to my theme.

  15. Y2Guru - Plain and Simple.zip

    Here's my first (and probably last) Theme submission, if it wasn't for the work of @CriticalCid and his CriticalZoneV2 - BlueBox theme I probably would never have attempted this, but I had a lot of fun putting this together and now its time for me to focus on building my collection and correcting missing and incorrect artwork :-) 
    Special thanks to @CriticalCid @keltoigael @eatkinola and @Grila
     
    Simply download, unzip and place the unzipped Y2Guru - Plain and Simple folder into  LaunchBox\Themes\
    Please read the Installation and Setup Guide.rtf located inside the Y2Guru - Plain and Simple folder.
    I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting this theme and artwork together.
    Cheers,
    Dave

  16. COLORFUL bigbox theme (BETA)

    # BETA ?
    Yes, for now, it's preliminary version. I have a lot of ideas, new view and things to fix in the near future!
    # WHAT IS IT ?
    COLORFUL is a complete and coherent high quality graphic set, around a unique design. Made with love in France. I hope you like it ! 😘
    Here are planned development axes:

    COLORFUL Theme : The main hub, a unique interface for BigBox. COLORFUL Platform Video : Complete 4K video set, with a unique design. COLORFUL Source : (soon) To involve the community in the platform video creation. COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : (soon) COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon) COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon) # HERE IS COLORFUL THEME FOR BIGBOX:
    On this page we are talking about COLORFUL Theme for BigBox:
    Design for work with my platform video set, COLORFUL THEME is thought to be used on the big screen (TV) in gaming console mode.
    Modern, elegant and animated are the key words of this interface.
    # I NEED YOUR HELP : PATREON ?
    Same problem as with my video set !
    Creating  videos & theme takes a loooooot of time. And I have to deal with a full-time CGI artist job and 2 young kids.
    So I opened a Patreon page that could allow me to dedicate days on my work time to continue creating video.
    I'm not trying to get rich, but like everyone else, I cant spend 1 day/week working for free! I hope you understand.
    If the project interests you: Here is my Patreon page.
    # IN DETAIL ?
    The main features :
    16:9 only. (Works on other ratio, but with black bands) Full 4K asset. (Any resolution must work, up to 4K) Totally responsive. No resolution deformation on text size or placement. Because of the white background, some ClearLogo comes with the theme. (because white on white ... we see nothing) Gamepad connection indicator & battery level. # RECOMMENDATION ?
    Any design choice gives limitations. Here are some recommendations for this theme :
    LaunchBox/BigBox v.10.0 (and up) VLC highly recommended. Design for work with COLORFUL platform video set. (but you can use any video you what) Beware of all white ClearLogo. They will be invisible on white views! I didnt test this theme on a lowend configuration. There may be slowdown. (Curious to have your feedback on this subject!) # COOL, HOW TO DOWNLOAD ?
    2 ways : 
     In Windows : Right here, with the download button. Extract the "Colorful" folder and place it in your "LaunchBox/Themes" directory.   (dont rename it!)  In BigBox : Option > Theme manager > Found "COLORFUL".  # SPECIAL THANKS !

  17. Memories of Yesterday BigBox Theme

    This is my first BigBox theme made entirely with @y2guru's fantastic, Community theme creator. I called it Memories of Yesterday (I suck with cool theme names). Many Thanks to @viking, for the Silver Ring Clear Logo set. @Mr.RetroLust (I cant seem to tag you for some reason) for the Marquee Screen Filler Magic, that I used on my arcade cabinet view. @nosh for the device images that I borrowed from the "Nosh on this Twice" Theme and Everyone else on the forums for all the code snippets, that helped me make this theme.! The theme is for 1920x1080 resolutions. If you have any issues, I would love to hear about them.
    Cheers! 
    Edit: Added video.

  19. Arcade

    Massive thanks goes to @y2guru for the COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox. Also thanks to @Grila for some of the code snippets I've used.
    _____________________________
    INTRODUCTION
    I know there's been arcade machine based themes before, The reason I wanted to make this one was firstly to try out some of the new features that were added to the theme editor, and secondly I've always wanted to see the side of the cabinet with the artwork. There is a known issue with the theme and for that reason it's best used at 16:9 aspect ratio. 
    _____________________________
    INSTALLATION
    Download the zip file and unblock it (right click the zip file, goto "Properties" then at the bottom put a tick in the "Unblock" box, hit ok when done) then extract the folder to --\Launchbox\Themes\

  21. Spectrum

    Spectrum is a complete rebuild of my theme Blade Runner. It focuses heavily on full screen 16x9 video backgrounds, animation, fading with 4 platform views, 5 game views and 5 color variants Blue, Green, Orange, Purple and Red.
    Platform 1 uses a color shifting background that fades elements on the UI and goes completely UI free aside from the BigBox Logo after 40 seconds of idle. Switching to another platform brings the UI back. Platform 2 uses the same elements but focuses on using Platform videos such as vikings color themes. Both of these can be changed in the video folder under background.mp4 and platforms folder. Platform 2 and 4 mirror their 1 and 3 views but do not fade any UI elements for those who want to always see the platform images.
    Games 1 view uses full screen video or stretched if 4:3 to output 16:9 and overlayed scanlines with animation and UI fading with slightly different timings than the platform views. Games 2 view uses the  same techniques as view 1 but keeps the original aspect ratio of the gameplay videos. Games 3 and 4 are mirrored views of 1 and 2 with no scanline overlay. The text view offers no fading and outputs video as stretched with scanlines.
    An optional folder is included to change the images of the button layouts from an XBOX controller to a PS4. These are located inside the Optional Button Layouts folder. Pick your option and inside is an Images folder, drag and drop these in the root of the theme(s).

  23. New Retro Big Box

    This is a theme meant to really lean hard on nostalgia. It's inspired by "New Retro Arcade Neon" and uses some of it's assets. As of right now, it consists of 1 view, and the goal is to add more platforms if there is demand for it. The platform images are "banner" images, so using a different view with this will look a little funky. 
    For a little extra immersion, I have Andy Hofle's "Arcade Ambience" mp3 as the background music. Those mp3's can be found here.  -  http://arcade.hofle.com/
    Thanks and I hope you enjoy it!

  24. Pyramids

    ** Theme has now been added to the Theme Manager inside BigBox - with an updated version**
    Massive thanks goes to @y2guru  for his amazing COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox, without his work in creating this simple to use theme design program I couldn't have made this theme.

    _______________________________________________________________________________
    INTRODUCTION
    As you can see from the screenshots its a very colourful and sort of cartoon-ish looking theme, I wanted you to get the feeling that your already in a game before you start to play a game!!
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    INSTALLATION
    Download the zip file and unblock it (right click the zip file, goto "Properties" then at the bottom put a tick in the "Unblock" box, and hit ok when done) then extract the folder too -- \Launchbox\Themes\
    __________________________________________________________________________________________
    AFTERCARE
    Although the theme is using fallback images for the Characters or Devices, you can still add your own artwork for systems I've not got round to finding artwork for and add them here
    -- \LaunchBox\Themes\Pyramids\Media\Characters
    -- \LaunchBox\Themes\Pyramids\Media\Devices
    Also you will need to check that the naming of a system Character / Device / Platform Clear Logo is the same exact spelling as your system.

  25. Play Box 2

    This is a continuation of Play Box, A modern look of Xbox One & Sony Playstation 4 user interfaces with nostalgic retro views of classic games.

    There are 3x Platform views & 11x Game views to choose from all with menu controls & all the video border views from the last theme.

To fix this issue, you must locate these files in the background & videoborder folders of my Play Box theme then change the names to your actual platforms name.
    Installation 
    Unzip the Play Box folder to your Launchbox /Themes directory. 
    Thanks to Nosh  for Banners which i have slightly edited to scale to my theme
