  1. Back to the 80's launchbox Theme.

    Based on @Grila amazing Plex Theme (so all credit to him please), i just modifed a few things to give it a Retro 80's feel.
    Fonts are included.
    Simply unzip and place in your LBThemes folder / install fonts (remember to change fonts in options inside launchbox).

  2. LBPlex

    LBPlex is a theme that mimics Plex Media Server's website interface. Two versions are included in the package: LBPlex - which has the default item spacing on the sidebar and list view, and LBPlex Condensed - which has much tighter item spacing on the sidebar and list view. I have also replaced the volume "knob" with a regular slider.
    All the colors in this theme are hard-coded with the exception of the Foreground (text) color in the LaunchBox Options\Legacy\Theme\Colors menu. The Background Opacity slider in the LaunchBox Options\Visuals\Boxes menu has no effect right now. A fix is in-coming so this will work at a later date. Update: If you run the latest LaunchBox Beta (8.7-beta-1 or above) this is fixed. The Fade Background slider in LaunchBox Options\Images\Default Background will adjust the brightness of the theme background image. Enjoy

  3. Bad Old Monkey

    This theme is not a drastic change from the default but I did change some things about Jasons default theme that did not suit my personal preference.
    *Requires 8.6 Beta 1 or newer
    Things I changed:
    Reduced vertical space between platform names. Shifted platforms text slightly left. Removed gap at the bottom of the Game Details panel. Removed gap on the right hand side of the Game Details panel. Shifted scroll bar in the main game window closer to the Game Details panel. Reduced font size of "Platform Name" at the top of Launchbox. Reduced the space between the top of box art to the top of the Launchbox window. Adjusted the "Platforms" panel dropdown menu so that it shows all entries without having to scroll. Enlarged the vertical and horizontal scrollbars in List View. Reduced the vertical space between the games in List View. Reduced the height of the column headers in List View. Install instructions:
    Copy the Bad Old Monkey folder into your \LaunchBox\LBThemes folder.
    In Launchbox Options > Visuals choose the Bad Old Monkey theme from the dropdown menu and restart Launchbox.
    If anyone applies the theme and it does not seem to work, try this:
    In LB, change theme to Default. Exit app.
    Delete the current Bad Old Monkey theme folder entirely.
    Download the latest zip from the theme download page.
    Extract the new Bad Old Monkey folder into the LBthemes folder.
    Open LB again and change theme to bad old monkey.
    After relaunching app, it should work correctly.
    Spacing settings I use in Launchbox:
    Horizontal Spacing 5 Vertical Spacing 5 Horizontal Padding 5 Vertical Padding 5 Text Spacing 2 Text Lines to Show 2 Aspect Ratio 0.65
