  1. Tycho's Game Control Screens

    These are for use with @Retro808's excellent Game Controls pause theme. I love its utility, so I made my own screens. I've included "generic" (system-wide) screens, as well as some game- or series-specific screens. Those are placed inside a folder named for the platform, with each file named using the games' Launchbox database ID number. They've been tested and work as expected, assuming you've set up the theme correctly. Of course, you may have to rename some of the platform files or folders according to your own setup; see the original post of the theme for more details.
    Some of the screens include button mappings that obviously won't work for everyone, and I didn't even come close to making a screen for every platform (only the ones I have), so I've also included template files to create your own screens, using the PNGs and backgrounds that I've made/collected. There are Photoshop and Illustrator files, and I'm sure I used a non-standard font or two. Anyway, I hope these are of use to somebody - enjoy!

  2. Unified Pause Theme

    This is a Pause theme for use with CriticalCid's Unified theme.
    The theme will pull its Platform background and clear logo images from CriticalCid's Unified theme folder so it will not work properly without the theme being installed.
    The theme was designed for 16:9 screens and display resolutions only.
    I have made 2 versions of the pause theme, one will display the box and cart art and the other will display the controller layout for the system being used.
    I have also included the .PSD template for the controller layout so you can create your own.
    Installation:
    Box Art pause theme:
    Extract the archive and drag the 'Unified' folder inside to the "..\Launchbox\PauseThemes\" folder. Install the font supplied in Font folder. Launch BigBox and go into -> Options -> Game Pause -> Pause Theme and change the Theme to "Unified". Controls pause theme:
    Extract the archive and drag the 'Unified' folder inside to the "..\Launchbox\PauseThemes\" folder. Drag the 'Game Controls' folder from the 'Controls' folder you want to use, to the "..\Launchbox\Images\" folder. Install the font supplied in Font folder. Launch BigBox and go into -> Options -> Game Pause -> Pause Theme and change the Theme to "Unified". IMPORTANT: Never rename the theme folder! The theme folder has to be named exactly "Unified" or the theme won't work properly!
    NOTE: All images must be placed in a specific folder structure and follow a standard LaunchBox naming convention to work with this pause theme.
    All platform specific control images must be named as the platform in your set-up is named and placed in the "..\Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\" folder.
    All game specific control images must be named as the LaunchBox Database ID and be placed inside a folder that is named as the platform in your set-up is named and the folder must be placed in the "..\Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\" folder.
     
    I have also made a Startup and Shutdown Theme to go with the Unifed theme to complete the setup.

  3. Game Controls FS (Full Screen - Beta)

    A variant of the  "Game Controls" theme that shows either a Game Specific controller mapping or in absence of a game map it will show a Platform Specific controller mapping in Full Screen (FS).
    A sample of images are supplied courtesy of @OhBoy. It is designed for those that will create their own mapping images or those that have them already and want a way to show them without having to override the current LaunchBox image files. The Images shown for display are only samples of how the theme will look.
    NOTE: All images must be placed in a specific folder structure and follow a standard LaunchBox naming convention to work with this theme. SEE BELOW.
    How to set-up:
    All images must be placed in the following folder and structure. (I have included the folder structure and ReadMe in the zip just copy it into \Launchbox folder.)
    (Pics below to show how this should look) 
    1) Place a folder called "Game Controls" in the \Launchbox\Images folder (It would be \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\)

    2) All platform specific control images must be named as the platform in your set-up is named and placed in the \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls folder
      (Example Sony PlayStation platform: \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\Sony PlayStation.jpg) Note: The name must match how you have the platform named in Launchbox.

    3) All game specific control images must be named exactly as the game is named in your set-up or as the LB Database ID (the LB Database ID is best used for games with symbols in the name as currently the coding has trouble pulling game files since LB will display ":" in the title but Windows will convert it to "_").
       The image must then be placed inside a folder that is named exactly as the platfrom is named and the folder must be placed in the Game Controls location.
       Game Specific Controls folder example: (Example Sony PlayStation platform: \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\Sony PlayStation\ ).
       The control image for the game specific is placed in the above folder folder:(Example Alien Trilogy for Sony Playstation: \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\Sony PlayStation\Alien Trilogy.jpg)
    IMPORTANT:
    The theme is searching for a .jpg if your images are .png you must either change your image file extenstions or I have left a ReadMe in the theme's folder on how to edit the theme. It is simple and only takes a few steps.
    I have included @OhBoy controller images with his approval. You can download what he has created here. He has a Startup and Pause theme as well.

    RELEVANT INFO:
    Most of the backgrounds are from this thread in the RetroPie forums, with a 6.6 pixel Gaussian blur applied twice:

    Controller images were taken from various parts of the internet, and modified to fit the theme.

  5. Game Controls (Beta)

    A no frills Pause Theme that shows either a Game Specific controller mapping or, in absence of a game map, shows a Platform Specific controller mapping.
    Some controller images supplied. This is not a complete collection you will have to source/make your images. The theme is mainly designed for those that will create their own mapping images or those that have them already and want a way to show them without having to override the current LaunchBox image files. 
    NOTE: All images must be placed in a specific folder structure and follow the standard LaunchBox naming convention to work with this theme. (SEE BELOW)
    The theme looks for a .jpg. If you are using .png there is a ReadMe on how to edit the theme or you can change your image file extension.
    How to set-up:
    All images must be placed in the following folder and structure. (I have also included a sample folder structure and ReadMe in the zip just copy the "Images" folder into \Launchbox folder.)
    1) Place a folder called "Game Controls" in the \Launchbox\Images folder (It would be \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\)

    2) All platform specific control images must be named as the platform in your set-up is named and placed in the \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls folder
      (Example Sony PlayStation platform: \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\Sony PlayStation.jpg) Note: The name must match how you have the platform named in Launchbox.

    3) All game specific control images must be named exactly as the game is named in your set-up or as the rom is name.
       The image must then be placed inside a folder that is named exactly as the platfrom is named and the folder must be placed in the Game Controls location.
       Game Specific Controls folder example: (Example Sony PlayStation platform: \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\Sony PlayStation\ ).
       The control image for the game specific is placed in the above folder folder:(Example Alien Trilogy for Sony Playstation: \Launchbox\Images\Game Controls\Sony PlayStation\Alien Trilogy.jpg)

  6. Big Fade

    Big Fade draws inspiration from @Grila BigForce BigBox theme. Pause theme shows a fanart background that fades away at the bottom to allow clear view of scrolling game notes and a game play image. Pause Menu is contained in a gradient transparent list box. Theme was tested on a 4:3 screen images provided to show how it looks on a 4:3.
    Image Priorities:
    Recommend in your Launchbox Image Priorities for Background moving clear logos further down the list of not using at all. This theme will resize and crop clear logos since the theme was designed for fanart primarily.
    Installation (Requires Launchbox 9.8 or higher)
    Available directly in the BigBox Pause theme manager.
    or
    Download from the forum and:
    1. Download zip file. (You may need to right click the zip file and choose "unblock"
    2. Extract zip in your \Launchbox\PauseThemes folder (fonts do not need to be installed)
    Big Fade Start can be located here. It is a startup theme to compliment the Big Fade pause menu.

  8. Simple Detailed Pause Theme

    Ok, so this is a re-make of the PausePie theme by @faeran. He made a very nice and clean pause theme that I love and have used since it was first released, Thank you Faeran! I modified and tweaked it quite a bit so that it would match the startup theme I made called Simple Detailed Startup. Credit goes to faeran for the original work, most of which is still in use. Please enjoy this pause menu and keep on gaming!
    @faeran, I will be glad to remove this if you request at anytime.
    What is it?
    This is a very simple pause menu with some basic animated GIF's. It displays info about the game and artwork.  Designed to go best with the Colorful Theme by @viking How to use it:
    Just unzip this to your Launchbox PauseThemes folder and then select it in BigBox and Launchbox. I hope I am not forgetting anything, please let me know if you have any problems or questions.
    PS: I have also made a Startup Theme to match.
