  2. My Room

    The theme was created for myself a couple of years ago, so I'm putting it here. It was created on the basis of the amazing Unified theme from the author CriticalCid. Because it was the most suitable candidate for realization of my idea.
    The idea was to recreate the atmosphere of a room from those times.
    I couldn't find suitable backgrounds on the internet, so I had to learn 3D, namely Blender, to create a couple of pictures for this theme. Yes, I'm probably crazy to learn 3D from scratch for the sake of two pictures. The plan was to create a choice of atmosphere of different console generations. 
    If the topic is in demand, I will resume updates.

  3. Mini Consoles Theme - RetroSai Nostalgia - Form over Function

    The inception of this project was catalyzed by observing the theme presented by exodus_cl. Inspired, I set out to architect a theme that would not only epitomize the unique ethos, ambience, and distinctiveness of each gaming platform I personally had the experience of using, but also pay reverence to their original design principles. Delving deep, I recreated and sometimes re-imagined themes of official mini consoles. Concurrently, I envisioned and formulated how other platforms, not originally themed by their respective manufacturers, might have been conceived.
    A nuanced observation would reveal that each Atari platform, while retaining its distinct character, embodies a similar ambience. This pattern can be observed across platforms like Nintendo and SEGA. For contemporary consoles, my approach gravitated towards capturing the essence of their dashboards, trying to evoke a profound sense of nostalgia. Distinctive views have also been crafted for platforms like PS2 and Xbox, reminiscent of the Demo Disks prevalent during their era.
    Theme Features:
    Aesthetic Integrity: Each console view crafted is a celebration of its unique vibe, endeavoring to pay the highest tribute to its original design.
    Dashboard Designs: Faithful recreations of existing Mini-Console dashboards are accompanied by imaginative conceptions of those that remain uncharted by official designers.
    Nostalgic Inclusions: Optional views are available replicating the classic Demo Disks for platforms like PS2 and Xbox.
    Auditory Experience: Background music encapsulates either iconic tunes from system games or melodies crafted using the genuine hardware.
    Re-imaginative Themes: Mini console themes, including those for the original Playstation and Sega Genesis, have been re-envisioned to seamlessly blend with the overarching theme.
    Regional Nuances: Alternate views tailored for specific regions encompass platforms like Famicom, Super Famicom, and the Sega Mega Drive series, to name a few.
    Universal View: A generic default games view is present, suitable for any console devoid of a custom design.
    UI Recreation: Emulating the ethos of newer consoles, UIs like the Xbox 360 Blades, PS3 XMB, and the WiiU Gamepad have been faithfully recreated.
    Recommended Configuration:
    Startup View: Platforms Games List View: Horizontal Wheel 1 Platforms List View: Platform Wheel 1 View Consistency: Ensure separate views are maintained for each platform. Please refrain from bypassing the game details screen, as bespoke game details screens have been designed in alignment with the native console/platform system menus where pertinent.
    Critical Information: Within each custom platform, the Game Details View Menu is subtly concealed, simulating the initiation of a game. To reveal this concealed menu, one must navigate either up or down whilst in the Game Detail View.
    Specific View Instructions:
    The primary view for most platforms aligns with the Horizontal Wheel 1 view. However, specific cases are outlined as:
    Systems devoid of a custom view should adopt the CoverflowGamesView. For the Playstation 2 Demo Disk View, resort to the HorizontalWheel2GamesVIew. Platforms like the Microsoft Xbox One, Nintendo Wii, WiiU, and Playstation Vita are best represented by the WallGamesView. For the Microsoft Xbox Demo Disk, Playstation 3, and Playstation Portable, the WheelGamesView is recommended. To ensure the Sega Master System/Sega Mark III Card Games are displayed appropriately, annotate "Card Media." at the conclusion of the Metadata Notes section for each game. Navigational Caution: When interacting with the WiiU, restrict your navigation downwards to prevent the game title from overlapping with other games.

  4. VisioN

    A stylish, background heavy focused theme with inspiration from the unreleased Aura 4k theme by iGarikoitz. The theme itself uses your clear logo images, fanart - background images, screenshot images, and game video snaps to create this completed theme. There is a number of white platform clear logos made by Dan Patrick and 100+ platform/playlist/category backgrounds are included that I have curated with the ability to add your own. This theme will gracefully fall back to different images to make sure something is always displayed.
    Requirements
    LaunchBox must be on version 13.1 or higher (or you'll get errors) Theme is made for a 16:9 aspect ratio Views
    Platform Wheel 1 - The main platform wheel for this theme Text Filters View - Used primarily when viewing other filter sections Horizontal Wheel 1 - The main game view for this theme Horizontal Wheel 2 - An alternate game view that uses your screenshots and video snaps Text Games View - Mostly used for the Game Details Menu view, but could be used as a game view
    Things to Note
    100+ Platform Backgrounds have been included in this theme. You can include your own by placing them in the following folders (The file name needs to match the name of your platform, category, or playlist): Platform Images: LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Platforms\Fanart Category Images: LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Platform Categories\Fanart Playlist Images: LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Playlists\Fanart White Platform Clear Logos have been included by Dan Patrick. You can add your own by placing them into the following folders (The file name needs to match the name of your platform, category, or playlist): Platform Images: LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Platforms\Clear Logo Category Images: LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Platform Categories\Clear Logo Playlist Images: LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Playlists\Clear Logo You can add your own Game Backgrounds that are specific to this theme. You can place them into the following folder (file name must either be based on the game's title, replacing special characters, or named after the LaunchBox Game ID. Check folder for some examples.) LAUNCHBOX\Themes\VisioN\Images\Games\Game Background\[platform name]     
    For Theme Developers
    There are a number of features in this theme that have never been done before. You can examine the code to learn the following:
    Use of a progress bar with the game count bindings that provides dynamic visual feedback of where you are in your game list as you are navigating around Use of the Index Visibility binding to provide animation triggers. This allows you to provide smooth animations to any element when opening and closing the alpha-numeric index The use of FlowImage (and its bindings) to provide performant image fallbacks. Using FlowImage over an Image element increases performance by loading images in an off-thread, provides better disposal logic, and doesn't lock the file that is located on the hard drive. The use of an item offset converter, which allows you to display images (or metadata) for games that  are (+ or -) around the game or platform that is selected.
    Thanks to
    Dan Patrick - for use of his white clear logo pack
    iGarikoitz - for the initial concept inspiration for this theme

  5. Flat and Classic Mini Consoles

    JAN. 2024 UPDATE | This was supposed to be a simple flat theme, but evolved into a 2 in 1, so you have the regular view which is flat and sleek and also you have available an optional view (per device) that resemble some classic mini consoles (including consoles that do not have mini versions as of yet).
    Features of this theme:
    Simple flat version that runs fast and looks great. No flashy animations that may affect perfomance. Optional "Classic Mini" view for many systems (WIP). Every Classic Mini view has it's own background music. Improved original design of some "Classic Mini" (Such as PSX and Genesis). Improved UI for some consoles like PS3, 3DS, etc. "Classic Mini" style views for consoles that do not have an oficial Mini version (such as PS2, WII, etc.). Platform/console selection with video (you need to download the video first from regular launchbox menu).  
    You can check some Videos of the theme in action on my Youtube Channel
    Most updates are being posted on my Patreon (nothing is hidden behind a paywall)

    If you'd like to support my work, you can invite me a coffee anytime!

  6. Pop Art

    Hey all!
     
    This is my first attempt at a theme.  It goes with what my cab will look like once it's all done - it's Pop Art!  I don't own any of these images, and borrowed them from all over the internet, modfied others, and even have some images from other themes.
     
    Would love to know your thoughts, if you'd like to see any changes.
     
    I have two versions, one that should work on a 27 inch monitor (via pc) and one set for a vertical machine (for those that have modfied Arcade 1up's.
     
     
    Enjoy!!!

  7. Flashycart

    Hello and thank you for checking out my brand new theme. Flashycart is an attempt at recreating ODE/Flashcart/Loader interfaces for many different systems. It has taken me hours upon hours of work, and I'm most happy to finally make it public. 

    Most consoles on this theme make use of Text views. The point is simplicity and speed. 3DS Uses a horizontal wheel. 

    Each screen is also customizable, as you can change the backgrounds to your liking. On N64 you can add a gif file named animbg.gif if you wish for an animated background. NES, Sega Genesis/Megadrive, Turbografx, and Snes/Sufami support animated backgrounds as well (animbg.gif and animlistbg.gif). 3DS supports regular and animated background (pt_bottom.gif and pt_top.gif).

    Recently I've gotten laid off from my job, putting my whole life in jeopardy. I normally hate doing this, but I could use some assistance so my wife and I can move to a cheaper place while I find a new job. I've been looking for months with no success, even before getting laid off. If it's within possibility, a small donation to my ko-fi would be very appreciated.

    With that said: This theme is and will always be free for everyone to use and enjoy.

  10. Neon Deluxe Arcade - 16:9 (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 - 16:9
    -----------------------------------------------------
    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. @faeranfor explaining the new marquee options in v12. Thanks guys!
    -----------------------------------------------------
    INSTALLATION
    1. Download the theme here and place the folder in Launchbox/Themes/
    2. You might need to unblock the zip file or all the .DLL's in the plugin folder. Right click the zip or DLL files, choose properties and at the bottom you click "Unblock".
    3. I recommend doing the following to speed up Big Box greatly: 
     - Uncheck all Background Images in Launchbox > Tools > Options > Media > Background 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! ?

  12. Neon Pulse

    Here is a BigBox-theme that I created in the CTC called "Neon Pulse"
    I used the Pulse-Theme from thimolor as a starting point and also used assets from other themes available in this forum. So all the credit for these assets go to their original creators.
    This theme needs a separate view for every platform (a very basic Default view is included as a backup). I included the files for the Community Theme Creator, so everyone can edit or add to this theme to his/her liking.
    Included Views:
    Platform Wheel 1
    Platform Wheel 2
    Vertical Wheel 1 (Static 3D Boxes)
    Vertical Wheel 2 (Interactive 3D Boxes)
    Horizontal Wheel 1 (Static 3D Boxes)
    Horizontal Wheel 2 (Interactive 3D Boxes)

    Included Platforms:

    Commodore Amiga
    NEC TurboGrafx-16

  13. Fading Elegance

    I have brought the Fading Elegance themes "up-to-date" to work better with the newer versions of Bigbox. Covers over 200 platforms and 60 common playlists. Other cosmetic changes and fixes. (last 8 screenshots are SE only)
    Feature: Slow changing color background
    Feature: various fading in-and-out information areas
    Includes: over 300 custom made genre and play mode images (includes a PS template)
    Updated: added or replaced some badges, controllers and artwork.
    Updated Video: (12-04-23)
    Assets used in the video (already included in the SE version of the theme)
    Stephen with Reverb - Platform Audio Clips PSGC Commercials - video snaps (download separately) PSGC Genre & Play Mode Images Startup Video PSGC Quiet Sound Pack some custom made Playlist videos The reason I had called the theme "Fading Elegance" was that I went for an elegant look, sharp edges and straight lines and designed certain information sections to be displayed for a few seconds, then fade out while fading in something new. Like in the platform views, it may start showing an image of the platform device, it will fade out, as the maximum number of players will fade in. These will rotate between the two. You will see this throughout the themes with various types of information. They have a smooth, slowly color changing background and have most all the bells and whistles that are available.
    Just a heads up, the Fading Elegance themes are pretty resource hungry as there are some "behind the scenes" videos going on and all animations that are used. Feel free to give them a try on low end systems, if you have issues, you may be able to delete the audio clips and background videos to gain some improvement. 
    - To activate LAN - add LAN as a new "Play Mode" for the desired game(s)
    - To activate ROM - add ROM as a new "Source" for the desired game(s)
    - To activate Karaoke - add Karaoke as a new "Genre" for the desired game(s)
    (bulk edit is easiest way to add new badges)
    If you would like to use the new badges in Launchbox, you will need to download the Badge pack.
    The SE version is being used in the video. The SE versions of my themes always have additional views and include Platform & Playlist audio clips. And of course, my supporters can change many of the assets by downloading them from the download section of my BMAC page.

    About:
    This theme is inspired by Pegasus Frontend's default theme. I personally really love the look of Pegasus, but vastly prefer the functionality of Big Box, so this is me doing my best to combine both worlds. Excluding those credited below, all other custom assets were created by me. As a note: This theme was designed in 4K for use on a large television. Scaling issues present in previous versions have been fixed, to my knowledge.  This WIP upload is intended to get fresh eyes on the project and help to identify issues I may not be running into with my limited usage, as well as provide a better version of this theme than was currently available during a period of time where I don't have as much free time as I have previously.
     
    Credits:
    Genre Icons: Game Icons
    Platform Clear Logos: v2 Platform Logos Professionally Redrawn + Official Versions, New BigBox Defaults 2.1.0
    Platform Banners (Present only in legacy versions): BannerBox 2.1
    Platform Media: System Media - Stencil Platform Images 1.0.
    Platform Images: COLORFUL Hardware PNG media (1x1) 1.1
    Finally, many thanks to @y2guru for the Community Theme Creator. While this version no longer uses the CTC, I would have never started on this journey, nor gotten nearly as far, without it.

  15. PSGC +Arcade

    PSGC +Arcade is about the same as PSGC with an Arcade twist. The PSGC +Arcade themes have been updated with even more custom made Platform/Playlist backgrounds, Audio Clips and Controllers. New screenshots (1-12 basic theme 13-26 SE version) (see changelog below for all the info).  PSGC was made to match one of my themes (skins) done for the PSMC media player. 
    PSGC +Arcade is a Netflix type theme that is great for a home theater experience. The custom colorful fanart backgrounds transition to random Platform/Game artwork on the left side of the screen and to Platform/Playlist/Game video snaps on the right side of the screen after a couple seconds.
    SE versions include all the bells and whistles; multiple views, textured backgrounds. SE users also have available to them: 13 platform/playlist audio packs, the platform/playlist video snaps, choice of backgrounds, custom badges that can be used in Launchbox, sound packs, custom made playlists used in the videos, and more.

    The PSGC theme has been updated with even more custom made Platform/Playlist backgrounds, Audio Clips and Controllers. New screenshots (1-10 basic theme 11-20 SE version) (see changelog below for all the info). PSGC was made to match one of my themes (skins) done for the PSMC media player. 
    PSGC is a Netflix type theme that is great for a home theater experience. The custom colorful fanart backgrounds transition to random Platform/Game artwork on the left side of the screen and to Platform/Playlist/Game video snaps on the right side of the screen after a couple seconds.
    SE versions include all the bells and whistles; multiple views, textured backgrounds. SE users also have available to them: 13 platform/playlist audio packs, the platform/playlist video snaps, choice of backgrounds, custom badges that can be used in Launchbox, sound packs, custom made playlists used in the videos, and more.

  17. CoinOps Forgotten Worlds Atarashi Theme

    For those who like the CoinOps theme, this theme is perfect for you. Based on the Forgotten Worlds Atarashi build with some new assets.
    Amazing and beautiful views. Like candy cabinet views and retro arcade nostalgia view with ambience sounds
    This theme also includes startup theme, two sound packs, and text templates to add your own platform or playlist text
     
    Known Bugs:
    In some views, the cabinet doesn't show for a split second
    When you launch a game when in the Retro Arcade view, the audio from BigBox will still be playing

  19. Vertical Prototype (DEAD)

    *Deprecated 10/11/2023
    This project is on ice. Launchbox and Bigbox have improved discoverability making most custom playlist work achievable using the in built filtering. The bezel artwork is still available in the links.
    *Updated12/23/2020
    Not much has changed. I included some images that I use for my platforms/playlists view.
    This is a work in progress theme for Big Box Theme creator. It is meant for monitors in portrait mode with vertical game play videos. It is still pretty rough, but it's something to use until something better comes along. In order to use this you must also download the theme creator and drop this file in the my projects folder. There is a font to install in the fonts folder. Open and tweak and then publish to use in big box. Updated for theme creator 1.0.8.95
    Arcade Overlays and Marquees can be found here.
    Windows Vertical Videos and Marquees can be found here.
    I'm using this theme only for games that support a vertical orientation during gameplay. It is untested with standard resolution games and the corresponding media.
    I do have plan to expand this build for all arcade games at some point but I am focusing on vertical resolution stuff for now and there is a lot to do.
    Options view is broken ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

  21. Haunted Woods (this is a Novelty theme)

    A year or two back when @faeran was making the "theme videos", he had done a halloween theme. I was cleaning up a bunch of my old theme stuff and ran across this one I had done back then but never uploaded. I did open it up in the current version of CTC and re-published it to see if it still worked.
    I was brand spanking new at themes and CTC back then, but I was having so much fun with it and I most certainly got a bit carried away with it.
    If you decide to download it and check it out, it will go on and on and on, but hang in there. Eventually it might grab a hold of ya.
    WARNING 1: It's silly, but might be a bit scary to the little ones
    WARNING 2: if you navigate to a new platform, the video sequence starts all over again, you been warned !
    WARNING 3: If you watch the video, I reckon you won't have a reason to download the theme  
    WARNING 4: Please leave a comment, if you don't, there won't be any comments  
     
     - Enjoy

  22. KZARCADE (1080p Theme with Video Bezels)

    Hello everybody ! 
    I'm happy to share with you my first BigBox theme.
    I made it for my home arcade machine.
    This is my first theme and I would be very grateful if you could tell me what is not working on your screens and what I could improve.
    Likewise, don't hesitate to ask me about other platforms.
    I tried to do my best for the fallbacks, don't hesitate to tell me if there are things that are wrong and I will correct them.
     
    Description of the theme :
    There are bezels (1920/1080) and marquees (1920/360) for:
    - Nes / Supernes / NeoGeo / Dreamcast / Genesis / N64 / Windows / Xbox / Xbox 360 / Playstation / Playstation 3.
    - I created fallback image and video backgrounds for other platforms. (Hope it works !)
     
    - Platformwheelview 1 with information and video bezels (character dance) :


    - Platformwheelview 2 with information and a random games character :

     
    - Platformwheelview 3 with Faeran's arcade cabinet on a fanart background and a random game character :

     
    - Gamewheelview 1 with video bezels (character dance) and  game information on the marquee (recommended for arcade cabinet) :


     
    - Gamewheelview 2 with fanart bezel and game information on the marquee (recommended for arcade cabinet) :



    - Gameviews 3 with two information panels on each side of the fanart bezel (recommended for single screen) :

     
    - Gameviews 4 the same panels on each side of the Faeran cabinet arcade (recommended for single screen) :

     
    - System view with a video bezel :

     
    Credits :

    Big thanks to the entire Launchbox team, big thanks to Faeran, I loved learning how to use the CTC through his tutorials.

  23. CoinOP

    As per version 3.0 this theme is now rebuilt from the ground up for performance and optimization.
    The theme showcases an arcade cabinet in an 80s style arcade with a dynamic marquee that can pull from a number of fallback images on a per-game basis, making sure there's always something displayed in the marquee.
     
     
    Make sure you right click the zip file, choose properties, and unblock the file.

  24. Eclipse

    Eclipse
    Eclipse for BigBox is a different kind of theme.  Rather than using the normal theme engine, it uses a plug-in to build the user interface from the ground up.  The goal for this plug-in is to provide: 
    Netflix style user interface with multiple lists of games on the screen at one time Voice search Random game function  
    Platform list view

     
    Game detail view

     
    Options for categorizing games

     
    Startup theme

     
    Shutdown theme

     
    Attract mode (screen saver)

     
    Demo
     
    Installation Instructions
    1. Download: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/3220-eclipse/
    2. Extract the contents to a folder
    3. Inside the Eclipse folder is a folder called LaunchBox
    4. Copy the Plugins, StartupThemes, and Themes folders
    5. Go to your Launch Box installation folder and paste the copied folders
    6. Open Big Box
    7. Esc to get to options
    8. Select Options > Views
    9. Set Theme to Eclipse
    10. Set Platforms List View to Platform Wheel 1
    11. If you want to use the startup theme, Options > Game Startup
        - Uncheck Show "Loading Game..." Message
        - Check Enable Startup Screen
        - Startup Theme: Eclipse
        - Minimum Startup Screen Display Time: 5 seconds
        - Maximum Startup screen Display Time: 5 seconds
        - Check Hide Mouse Cursor on Startup Screens
    12. Go back - the first time the theme starts will take a long load time to generate the image cache
    13. NOTE - If you get any errors, you can check the log file called Eclipse.txt in your LaunchBox folder and message me on the forums to let me know
    General usage
    - Up, Down, Left, Right - moves around
    - Enter - selects something
    - Escape - cancel or go back - pressing it will get you back to the BigBox settings where you can exit the application
    - Page Up - pick a random game
    - Page Down - voice search
    Bezels
    - Bezel images can be displayed around the preview videos
    - The system will first look for a game specific bezel. If not found, it will look for a platform specific bezel. If not found, it will look for a default bezel. 
    - A few default bezels are provided with the installation. You can delete them from the folders specified below if you prefer the videos without bezels.
    Game specific bezels
    - The system tries to find a game specific bezel image in the following order:
    1. In plug-in media directory:
    ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\Eclipse\Media\Bezels\{PLATFORM}\{CleanGameTitle}.png
    - Here {CleanGameTitle} replaces any invalid characters with an underscore. Characters like ' and : cannot appear in file names so they are replaced with an underscore
    - For example: A bezel file for the game "19XX: The War Against Destiny" should have the following path and file name ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\Eclipse\Media\Images\Arcade\Bezel\19XX_ The War Against Destiny.png
    MAME bezels
    - If a game specific bezel isn't found in the plug-ins media folder as described above, then the program will look into the MAME installation folder. In order for MAME bezels to work, installing the bezel project for MAME would create files with this structure:
    ..\LaunchBox\Emulators\MAME\artwork{game.ApplicationFilePath}"Bezel.png"
    Retroarch bezels
    - Bezels installed by the bezel project for retroarch will go into a folder location like this:
    ..\LaunchBox\Emulators\Retroarch\overlays\GameBezels{RetroarchPlatform}{game.ApplicationFilePath}.png
    Platform specific bezels
    - These are used if there are no game specific bezels found
    - You can specify a different image for horizontally and vertically oriented games so that they fit appropriately
    - The platform specific bezel image files must have the following file names and locations:
    ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\Eclipse\Media\Bezels\{PLATFORM}\Horizontal.png
    ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\Eclipse\Media\Bezels\{PLATFORM}\Vertical.png
    System default bezels
    - These are used if there are no game specific or platform specific bezels found
    - You can specify a different image for horizontally and vertically oriented games so that they fit appropriately
    - The default bezel image files must have the following file name and location:
    ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\Eclipse\Media\Bezels\Platforms\Default\Horizontal.png
    ..\LaunchBox\Plugins\Eclipse\Media\Bezels\Platforms\Default\Vertical.png
    Looking for feedback
    I'm looking for any suggestions that would make this theme better.  What's currently on my list for improvements:
    New option to add a game to a playlist from the game detail screen New option to display game manuals from the game detail screen Improve image cache logic to better detect differences between LB images and plugin image cache Use VLC for video playback  Option to flip box art  This could be expanded a bit more to  Show achievements in game details Improvements to the options side-panel that opens up under the gear (add some icons and make it look a little less "blah") Several ideas for configuration options Default category and list to pick when opening  Minimum number of games required to be included in a category This would allow you to eliminate lists don't have more than 1 game showing in the series category for example Improvements to the loading screen to make it prettier Performance improvements for loading times by doing more work in the background Overhaul of entire codebase Support for any resolution or aspect ratio - currently this only works (well) on 16:9 screens Make game lists more dynamic - the implementation of the lists uses a bunch of static image controls  Localization If anyone thinks of anything that could make this theme better, I'd be interested to hear it!

  25. Cocktail Table Example view

    I know this isnt very good as such but showing a potential style for the cocktail view that could be done, if anyone wants to use it for template please feel free, this may be useful for style.
     
    My hope with the glass segment was the idea that if it transitioned between menus it would open and close like a door opening to selected platform/view that could occur, this is a single view for Vertical Wheel 1
