By edgemundoCollection of 100+ Genre/playlists logos i created to go with Mr. Laor's Unified Refried Genre Videos/Logos/Backgrounds pack.
By Yorrick36I've recently been clarifying and curating the genre list in my collection to be as intuitive as possible. I eventually simplified it down to 21 categories where each game had 1 genre. Problem is, when it was time to check out the playlist I made, many did not have a clear logo. I decided to try my hand at making some! The idea was to take an iconic game logo/boxart/title screen and turn it into the genre logo. This is my first time taking on a project like this, so comments and criticism is more than welcome!
By Wanderer189This is a MASSIVE collection of clear logos focusing on Genres (categories) and with some Collections included. There is a download pack for 40 different platforms. There are 1000'S of clear logos in this collection. They work fine with all the available themes that I've tried. There is a separate download pack for each platform. Each downloaded zip contains 2 folders (one is a folder with the clear logos which is pretty much a drag-n-drop thing, the 2nd is a folder with matching playlists (auto-generated) if you wish to try them, (keep in mind the playlists are far from perfect and still being updated), along with Readme.txt that explains where everything goes. I was inspired to do this when I switched to the Retro Console Theme by cemfundog and some logo work done by scooter1974. It got me started when I wanted to create a couple for myself and well, that couple just keeps growing now.... Thanks to both of you for your help.
Per request, I added the complete set in a single file called for easier downloading. It contains everything that's in all the individual downloads. (Problems with LB's website, had to upload to g-drive)
Complete Collection v18.104.22.168z
You can get the matching videos here:
Extreme Gamer Collection (works with COLORFUL and most other themes) Ultimate Playlist Beginner Setup Guide & Starter Collection (with New Video Sets, smaller in size and easier to download) Massive #1 - 100's of Videos that match these clear logos - The screenshots above are NOT using the matching videos Massive #2 - Another set of almost 500 genre/category Videos that match these - Cemfundog and I collaborated on this and using his design I created these to go with his animated Retro Console Theme v2. TV Commercial Platform Videos Download Retro Console Theme: Retro Console Theme or Retro Console Theme V2
These logos really pop if you set BigBox to use Platform Categories as the view. Of course, the better your genres are defined, the better your playlists (and logos) will work for you. That's why I included my matching playlists to help you get started if you have been putting it off like I did for years..haha. Make copies or backups of your files (the one mentioned in the Readme) then you can try these and if you don't like them, you can delete them and easily put things back like you had them.
As it stands right now, there are close to 20,000 files in the collection. If you are working with limited storage space, you can always download the systems you need, pick out the ones you want to use and delete the rest.
Each system download has the same content concerning the genres/categories, meaning if one system has a clear logo for "Baseball", every system will have a clear logo for "Baseball. I done it this way so if you add a new game and you choose a new genre for it that is new to your setup, and the genre files have already been installed from here, they will be picked up automatically for you. (If I create a new category, genre or collection, it will be added it to all the systems.)
Concerning the Play Mode images: I have tried to make all the images that pertain to the # of players, local, online, single player, multiple player, local co-op, split screen, 2-Player Alternating, etc., specific to each individual platform. Like the Xbox 360 images have 360 controllers on them or the Wii U images have a Wii U on one side and the Wii U Controller on the other. Just a added touch. All systems will play mode images for up to 8 players (starting in version 2) in both Simultaneous and Alternating, so I tried to fit many different setups, as we all have have different likes.
My objective it to finish through my library with the genres I have, then I will either begin all over again maybe focusing on Collections I have or try to make matching video snaps, not sure yet.
I will try to accept requests now for other genres/categories....I ask you be patient as I am only one old feller and I'll do the best I can. PLEASE keep requests to things that will have at least 5-10 games that will pertain to it. I am trying to focus it around single word genre/categories best I can.
This is a work-in-progress and on-going I'm sure. The better the metadata, the better searches and organization it makes.
Here are the systems included so far: (Updated to v4 on 06-15-20)
Microsoft Xbox 360
Nintendo Entertainment System
Nintendo Game Boy Advance
Nintendo Game Boy Color
Nintendo Wii U
Sega Game Gear
Sharp X68000 - NEW

Feel free to leave comments, questions and suggestions and I will get back as soon as I can.
By CorganThis logo is useful if you have have configured a Platform Category to hold all of your playlists. It's a small contribution compared to the great works of others on the site, but I thought others could use it too. I found the white version to look better, but you have a choice of white or black.
By BellinghamHi all, occasional lurker making a first contribution here. Here are some clear logos I made for playlists etc which I thought others might like or at least not despise. I'd downloaded garbanzo's 'Years' playlists and sorted them into decades as per the suggestion, and had used some of Retroni's superb System Playlist logos to label each individual year, but wanted some clear logos of my own to denote the decades. Then I liked the look of what I'd done and made some more logos for other things. Hope they're of use!
By Mr.LaorNeeded these. Let me know if there is interest in others.
By buxilaks'BRUTAL Doom' Playlist Clear Logo
Here's a link to the matching playlist video.
I've left a 'BRUTAL Doom' tutorial in the description for the video.
By RetroNiI have created playlist clear logo sets, which I have based on the logo font for each system.
I had to create entire fonts and edit other fonts to resemble the logo font for many of the systems.
Each set contains a black, white and a colour version of clear logos for the following...
Playlists logos include:
Genres logos include:
Regions logos include:
Years logos include:
Not every platform category\playlist will utilize every logo depending on your build.
I have used the same naming system thats used in the Unified Theme. So I would suggest verifying the playlist/platform names before dropping them into your images folder... as some may differ from user to user and wrongly named files will not show up in BigBox.
If you do have different platform names you can use Bulk Rename Utility to rename them quick and easy.
How to add them to LaunchBox.
Drag and drop the Platform Categories and the Playlists folders into the Launchbox Images folder. Launch BigBox and go into -> Options -> Image Cache and Refresh Platform Wheel Images.

By sundogakThree sets of player mode silver ring logos in following formats:
Arcade - with arcade joystick pictogram modeled after Dragon57 style. PC - with PC player pictogram Console - with XBOX controller pictogram Each set contains 25 logos with from one player up to eight players for each of the following:
Alternating Simultaneous Plain (just Player logo with no alternating or simultaneous text) A logo for each set is also present for more than 8 players.
By sundogakThe region set of playlist silver rings includes:
Argentina Asia Australia Brazil Canada China Czech Republic Denmark Europe Finland France Germany Hong Kong India Ireland Italy Japan Korea and another logo that is more technically accurate map wise as "South Korea" Mexico New Zealand North America Norway Russia Spain South America Sweden Taiwan The Netherlands UK USA World x 2 different versions with one in ALT folder Inspiration for set was by Dragon57 for his original set of regional logos.
A set of clear logos for the Regions playlists...yep...that's about it...
Just drop the logo into the Playlist folder for the appropriate region "Launchbox/Images/Playlists/(SystemName)(Region)/Clear Logo/"
No need to rename or anything.
83 unique playlist logo sets I created to go with the new Auto Generated Playlist feature recently added. These took quite some time to make,considering I had to create entire fonts for some of them (ScummVM,MAME,NEC SuperGrafx,etc.) due to no font existing,and editing similar fonts to resemble the system fonts for others. Each set contains 8 logos covering the following..
Not every playlist/platform will utilize every logo,but,just for completionist sake,I made them all for each one anyways.
I have organized the file to be drag and drop,but,I still suggest to verify the playlist/platform names before dropping it into your images folder...as some may differ from user to user,and wrongly named files will not show up.
After placing them in the appropriate place,you should also refresh platform clear logos in options as well.
By ap3demakAfter a request from a member, I created the following logos for its playlist by release date, this can be useful for those who need to categorize their collection by date ...

This is a pack of simple, text-based clear logos intended to be used with arcade genre playlists. The genres roughly correlate to the "All Killer, No Filler" categories.
By MachelloI have created a Clear Logo for the SNES Classic Edition. I used the NES Classic clear logo from :
Just a thing I created with paint so there isn't an empty platform logo in my setup . Far from the quality other people create but I uploaded just in case someone can use it.
I choose Grey because i wanted to ok?
By Dazzler001Just thought i'd share these playlist clear logos i created after not being able to find the ones i needed. I used a clear logo template from this site (VIKING) .....thanks
These need to be placed in the playlist clear logo folder and renamed to your playlist name (unless you have named them exactly the same as these).
Clear logos are as follows : Beat em up, Shoot em up, Shooters, Puzzle, Vs fighters, Sports, Run and Gun, Platformers, Light Gun, .....they all have a silver ring which ive given a retro look
This is my first upload so hope you all enjoy....just hoping someone will now create the playlist videos to match ...big thanks to the original creators of the Jukebox/Arcade and Light gun icons
Sorry I haven't post any new rings in a while. College is killing me.......
I doubt you probably gonna use this but i put it here just in case
IF THERE'S ANY COMPANY I'M MISSING OR IF YOU WANT TO REQUEST ONE, COMMENT THE NAME OF THE COMPANY AND I WILL PATCH IT UP.
By ZombeaverThese are a few playlist clear logos that I've created in the same style as my platform clear logos. There are both normal and scanline versions available for all logos as well as alternates for some of the logos.
Since there aren't set-in-stone predefined playlists like there are platforms, these are just for some generic genres. I plan on doing some more, like "FPS" and "Racing" but I'm open to other suggestions. Forum thread is here.
Current playlist logos:
Beat 'em Ups
