  1. NoshOnThis

    This is the initial release of NoshOnThis theme. Right now the theme is specifically optimized for 16:9 resolutions but that will be improved soon.
    Make sure to read the readme.txt in the theme root, there are a few fonts that need to be installed, Dense and Exo and for the moment the custom platform category banners need to be moved into your LaunchBox\Images folder but that was actually just fixed on the live stream I am on currently and should be released with 7.11.0.1 beta.
    This theme is packaged with a custom pack of platform banners, there are currently 63 of them. I will continue to create them and I am more than happy to take requests. I will also be releasing the banner pack separately as well. Make sure to clear your coverflow and platform wheel image cache or the custom banners will probably not show up for you.
    There is an easter egg included with the theme that will show up randomly 1-30 minutes when sitting on a platform or game view. You may need to increase your Attract Mode delay time in order to see it.
    Enjoy!

  3. Epoch09

    Epoch09 started out as a post-apocalyptic vision, kinda my twist on the retro-based themes others have created. It contains a set of simple text-based views that are resource friendly. From there, I decided to add a series of "outposts" representing different environments. These outpost views are intended to use platform and game media; hence more resource hungry. The theme currently only contains one "outpost" of old abandoned buildings within a storied city. I've got one or two other outposts in mind, but I decided to open it up to suggestions. As much as possible, I'd like the outposts to be integrated into and become part of an interesting background. There should be a game and platform view for each outpost. So, let me know if you have any ideas -- please use the forum thread as follows:
    INSTALLATION: As with other themes, copy Epoch09 into the Themes folder. It also relies on a small custom library, which needs to be copied to your LaunchBox installation. Do this:
    1. Exit BigBox (and LaunchBox).
    2. Copy Epoch09 folder into LaunchBox\Themes folder.
    3. Copy Ao.Bigbox.dll file into LaunchBox\Metadata folder.
    4. Restart BigBox (cannot do #2/3 while BigBox running).
    5. Select Epoch09 as your theme from within BigBox.
    NOTE: You don't need to install any fonts for this theme to work, as the required fonts are packaged in the Ao.Bigbox library. This library also includes additional code required for the theme to function properly.
    Thanks @Grila for teaching me how to create and use a custom library within BigBox.

  5. Modern Mini

    This is a theme based on two themes.
    One is ClassicMini from @Grila https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/35204-classicmini/
     
    And the unfinished theme "Red 84" from @Jegeroel https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/35634-red-84/
    This theme is only possible with the helping hand from @Grila and his magic (and fast) codding skills.
    I only did the layouts (Kinda, because mostly it's based on what Grila did and Jegeroel) but I did some touches here and there.
    Also, I strongly recomend using @reignstumble console Artwork Packs : https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/33483-reignstumble-console-artwork-pack/
    The main focus is to have the video playing in the Background and launch the game right away.
    But if you want more info about the game (like the ROM filename) take a look on the details page.I've been using this theme for about two weeks, and haven't encountered any problem on it.
     
    If someone needs the PSD files, so they can change the buttons layout, feel free to PM me and I release the file.
    Again, it wouldn't not be possible with the help of Grila!
    I hope you guys enjoy it!

  6. BigCouch Theme

    BigCouch was designed for use on big TV screen. A clear and clean interface to navigate easily in your games and platform.
    Seems to be a display bug for the video alignment for few users on PlatformView 2 . It's random and it sounds like a bug in the video engine.

  7. ComixBox Theme

    ComixBox v1.0.2
    BigBox Theme
    2/23/2017
    Theme Description
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    ComixBox is a theme based on old school comic book design. It relies heavily on having the proper artwork scraped for your systems and games including background fan art, screenshots, front cover images, etc. ComixBox also features some advanced animation techniques that have never been seen before in BigBox.
    Separate views were made for the diferent video snap aspects available. Utilize the option "Remember Separate View for Each Platform" in BigBox Options - Views to get the best visual from the theme (to avoid blank space on the sides of your video snaps).
     
    Theme Notes 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    * Requires the fonts Bangers and Clementine, which are included in the root theme folder. Install them before running BigBox.
    * The animations in the theme were ultimately just me experimenting with some stuff to try and bring something new to a BigBox theme. I thought they ended up pretty neat so I left them in. I do have a version without them that I'm planning on adding to the .ZIP file shortly.
    * The theme was ultimately designed for 1920x1080 but was tested to be fully working at these resolutions as well:
    1280x720 1366x768 1600x900  
    Changelog 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    v1.0.2 (2/23/2017):
    Changed all the videos to use the background video object so they would stretch to fill their appropriate spaces Forced platform and game background videos to "On" in the theme settings file to compensate for the above change v1.0.1 (2/21/2017):
    Added fade effect to the title section so the text doesn't appear until after the animation passes (applies to platform and game views 1, 2, and 3) Added the transition selector codes back to the text views that was erroneously removed during development v1.0.0 (2/20/2017):

  8. NESiCAxLive Theme

    Introduction
    This theme was requested by @Evilmaster and is designed to mirror the interface of the NESiCAxLive system Taito use in their TypeX2 mutli-game cabinets. This is my first attempt at creating a theme so please be kind. The theme has been built for 1920x1080 resolution and is likely to look wrong in other resolutions currently. I may update the theme for other resolutions if there is sufficient interest for me to do so,
    The theme does include the ability to display publisher logos as well as game specific control layouts within the interface. The theme is also built around using steam-style banners - I have detailed the simplest way to set this up currently in Launchbox below as the wheel does not support steam banners as a games view currently without some tweaking of your library.
    The Views
    Platform Wheel 1 - Horizontal Banner View
    Platform Wheel 2 - Horizontal Logo View

  9. Optional Edit of City background video (CityHunter Theme)

    I wanted a little slower motion video of the city background video that came with the CityHunter theme, so I searched and ended up finding the original video it all came from, called Retrowave
    Putting it here so it's in a central location instead of buried within a thread, just in case anyone else wants to give it a try.

  10. BigForce Theme

    BigForce v1.0.0
    BigBox Theme
    02/08/2017
    Theme Description
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    BigForce is a modern, dark theme focused around the visual style of the computer graphics giant, nVidia. The idea is based off a RetroFE theme called Ergo Proxy by ryuuji that I adapted and modified for BigBox.
     
    Theme Notes 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    * Requires the fonts geforce-bold.ttf and geforce-light.ttf. Both are included in the root theme folder. Install them before running BigBox.
    * This theme is designed for 1080 but works well at the following resolutions with one missing reflection (due to the way it was implemented):
        -1280x720: no reflection of the details on the text views
        -1366x768: no reflection of the details on the text views
        -1600x900: partial reflection of the details on the text views
    * If you have your games rated in LaunchBox (5-star rating system), it will be reflected in the theme.
    * I made this based on high quality vertical covers for all systems, it's not going to look right with horizontal covers. I am aware of this, there's no need to tell me. A good source for these is http://www.thecoverproject.net/.
    * Included are a handful of vertical platform banners I made based off eash system's original box design. If the ones you need aren't included, get creative and make your own.

  13. SMW Theme

    SMW  v1.0.0
    BigBox  Theme
    2/2/2017
     
     
    A Quick Note
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~
    I originally started this just as a proof of concept for myself and I wasn't planning on uploading it for the community. After it progressed a bit, I thought it was actually turning out kinda cool and some of you may like to add it to your collection. So here we are. If there's enough interest I'll add some more views to it.
     
    Theme Description
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    SMW is a simple, fun theme that was created by utilizing sprite sheets from the Super Nintendo game Super Mario World. It's designed to be a basic, easy to use theme with a throwback, pixellated visual style.
     
    Theme Notes 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    * This theme is designed around a 16:9 aspect ratio. The following resolutions have been tested and are known to work as intended:
        - 1280x720
        - 1366x768
        - 1600x900
        - 1920x1080
    * Includes a custom, parallax background video that I made specifically for this theme
      
    * Custom Coin Icon for your favorited games in the list views
    * A static background in also coded into the theme for those of you who wish to use this theme on lower-end hardware. You'll have to edit the code and comment out the video line AND un-comment the image line. This has to be done in the following views (code is labeled for your pleasure):
        - PlatformWheel1FiltersView.xaml
        - TextFiltersView.xaml
        - WheelGamesView.xaml
        - TextGamesView.xaml

  14. Translucent Theme

    Translucent  v1.0.1
    BigBox  Theme
    1/31/2017
    Theme Description
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    Translucent is a modern-ish theme that features real-time Gaussian blurring behind its transparent panels giving them a frosted glass look. The effect works on both background art and background videos.
     
    Theme Notes 
    ~~~~~~~~~~~
    * Requires the font Bebas Neue, which is included in the root theme folder. Install it before running BigBox.
    * This theme is designed for 1080. The way the blur effects are implemented as well as the way that some text is formatted won't provide optimal results at any other resolution. I am aware of this, there is no need to comment and tell me about it. Beauty trumped compatibility on this one.
    * Any display scaling above or below 100% is likely to cause alignment issues with some of the theme elements.
    * The real-time Gaussian blurring can be a resource hog with fullscreen background videos enabled. Setting all transitions to "None" can help performance, as will using fan art backgrounds instead of videos.

  15. ClassicMini


     
    ClassicMini is a lightweight theme inspired by the NES (and Famicom) Classic Edition that was recently released. It doesn't feature all the flashy videos that seem to be the rage nowadays, but it's simplistic pixel design will take you back to the days of yesteryear. 
    16:9 aspect ratio is suggested, I haven't had time to test at any others so don't complain if it doesn't look right. Working game ratings if you have them set in LaunchBox  
    ClassicMini Changelog:
    v1.2.1 (01/23/2017):
    - Changed the font to a normal sans-serif (Segoe UI family) to help with overall aesthetics and readability
    - Added filter/platform details to the text filter/platform view
    v1.2 (01/21/2017):
    - Changed the binding of the cover images to use the transition presenter instead of calling them directly
    v1.1.1 (01/19/2017):
    - Added a missing opacity mask for the text platform and text game view
    v1.1 (01/19/2017):
    - Added a Famicom styled theme. I had to make it a seperate theme because of the way BigBox shares some of its views.
    - Re-named the NES version of ClassicMini to ClassicMiniNes to reflect the addition of the ClassicMiniFamicom theme
    - Added Famicom skin images
    - Skinned the platform text view, system menu, and options menu
    - Minor changes to various image files
    v1.0 (01/16/2017):
    - Initial release

  16. MS-DOS BigBox Theme

    This is a simple MS-DOS based theme for BigBox. After the new release of Launchbox on MS-DOS, I realized "Wow... This simplicity just feels so much better!" So I went ahead and started making this. It is my very first Bigbox theme, so chances are there will be stuff that's not correct. If so, please comment so I can try and fix it. The design is based on (As in pretty much ripped off) Launchbox for MS-DOS.
    This theme is meant to be used with the view "Text list with details" for both Platforms and Games. Do away with all those clunky boxes, videos and logos, and just enjoy the simplicity the good old days.
    NOTE: Install the font included with the theme! Perfect DOS VGA 437
    NOTE2: Goes best with my sound pack here:

  18. SciDoc 5.4

    Hi All
    Here is my New Theme Scidoc.  
    LaunchBox Beta 7.16 up needed.
    IMPORTANT MUST READ:
    Inside the zip SciDoc 5.4 is a folder called SciDoc this is the folder you must cut out and place in your theme folder!
    I have only tested and compiled this on a 15.4 Monitor hopefully it should also work fine on 4.3 Monitors as i do not have one to test it on.
    Unzip and Copy or Cut the Folder Scidoc and place inside your Theme Folder in LaunchBox.
    All the views are done it is almost fully skinned from top to bottom including the BigBox page and the Options page as well as the Music Popup.
    A total of 5 Platform Views and 11 Game Views.
    In the Images folder for PlatformWheel3FiltersView there is an Overlay3NOSCANLINES.png Just remane it to Overlay3.png for No Scanlines in that platform view.
    In the Coverflow with Details views just overwrite and Save in Notepad++
    <Grid.Background>
                    <ImageBrush ImageSource="pack://siteoforigin:,,,/Themes/SciDoc/Images/CoverDetailsOverlay.png"  RenderOptions.BitmapScalingMode="HighQuality" />
    </Grid.Background>
    with
    <Grid.Background>
                    <SolidColorBrush Color="Black" Opacity="{Binding BackgroundFade}" />
    </Grid.Background>
    If you do not like the Overlay with the theme.

    To use this theme fully turn off Platform Video Backgrounds and Game Video Backgrounds.
    Platform videos for this theme should be in 16.9 aspect ratio .  There should hopefully be no problems with the 640x480 Game videos in the game views.
    Inside the Platform Folder you will find a folder called Clear Logo, inside this folder you will find 59 Blue Platform Logo's, as well as one Blank Logo. For platform logo's you are missing resize and paste a clear logo in any art program onto this blank logo and rename to the desired platform name.  Always keep the Blank Logo as a Template.

  19. SciDoc 16.10

    Hi All
    Here is my New Theme Scidoc.  
    LaunchBox Beta 7.16 up needed.
    IMPORTANT MUST READ:
    Inside the zip SciDoc 16.10 is a folder called SciDoc this is the folder you must cut out and place in your theme folder!
     have only tested and compiled this on a 16.10 Monitor hopefully it should also work fine on 16.9 Monitors as i do not have one to test it on.
    Unzip and Copy or Cut the Folder Scidoc and place inside your Theme Folder in LaunchBox.
    All the views are done it is almost fully skinned from top to bottom including the Bigbox page and the Options page as well as the Music Popup.
    A toal of 5 Platform Views and 11 Game Views.
    In the Images folder for PlatformWheel3FiltersView there is an Overlay3NOSCANLINES.png Just remane it to Overlay3.png for No Scanlines in that platform view.
    In the Coverflow with Details views just overwrite and Save in Notepad++
    <Grid.Background>
                    <ImageBrush ImageSource="pack://siteoforigin:,,,/Themes/SciDoc/Images/CoverDetailsOverlay.png"  RenderOptions.BitmapScalingMode="HighQuality" />
    </Grid.Background>
    with
    <Grid.Background>
                    <SolidColorBrush Color="Black" Opacity="{Binding BackgroundFade}" />
    </Grid.Background>
    If you do not like the Overlay with the theme.

    To use this theme fully turn off Platform Video Backgrounds and Game Video Backgrounds.
    Platform videos for this theme should be in 16.9 aspect ratio but should also work with 4.3 Videos as well as i have created the overlays to take advantage of the way 4.3 videos left align themselves.  There should hopefully be no problems with the 640x480 Game videos in the game views.
    Inside the Platform Folder you will find a folder called Clear Logo, inside this folder you will find 59 Blue Platform Logo's, as well as one Blank Logo. For platform logo's you are missing resize and paste a clear logo in any art program onto this blank logo and rename to the desired platform name.  Always keep the Blank Logo as a Template.
    All Videos supplied with the theme are recorded from the visualizer milkdrop by me and are free under the BSD licence as far as my checking could acertain.
    With many thanks Maddoc1007.

  23. SimplyHD

    Hello everyone!
    I created this simple HD theme titled SimplyHD. There is a single platform view and games wheel view. I know this works with a 1920x1080 resolution but I'm not really sure on any other resolution. I've tried with other resolutions and the text doesn't scale right for whatever reason. I'm new at learning all this .xaml stuff.  
    If you are running 1920x1080 resolution and have weird text scaling issues where text is to big and outside the box. Check your Windows display settings for text size and make sure it's set to 100%
    To start it off, here is a few options I recommend setting inside BigBox.
    Options - Keyboard Mappings - Map Switch View to a key Options - Platform Details - Check 6 boxes. The Platform Details will show 6 I recommend checking (Default Emulator, Total Games, Games Completed, Last Played, Play Count, and Most Played) Options - Transitions - Filter Games Boxes Transition: Slide Horizonal Options - Videos - Check Use Game Background Videos and  Check Use Platform Background Videos Options - Views - Games List View: Vertical Clear Logo Wheel Options Views - Platforms List View: Platforms Wheel with Image, Video, and Thumbs Options - Views - UnCheck - Show Filters Favorite Games Options - Images - UnCheck - Show Clear Logos in Games Details Option - Game Menu - UnCheck - Show Game Menu Title I also recommend using Viking's Platform Logo's found here:
     
    You can change the colors of the theme by renaming the Default folder, which is in your theme directory.  ...\LaunchBox\Themes\SimplyHD\Images\Default
    There is a total of 9 different colors. To rename I recommend exiting BigBox and rename Default to whatever. Example "-Default". Then rename the color you want to Default. Example rename the Blue folder to Default, then restart BigBox.
    Here is a few examples of the colors, Dark Red, Blue, and Green.
     

    Below is a a few screenshots showing some of the features on the platform and games view.
    Opacity can be changed to your liking via editing the .xaml file
    PlatformWheelImageVideoThumbsFiltersView.xaml (Opacity settings start at line 79) They are in decimal and range from 0-1 (0.65 is default, which is 65%)
    WheelGamesView.xaml (Opacity settings start at line 79) They are in decimal and range from 0-1 (0.65 is default, which is 65%)
