Mr. RetroLust's Marquee Screen Filler Magic

Introduction:
This is for those that like to fill the surrounding empty (black) space of their Marquee screens while maintaining the original Marquee's aspect ratio, what these replacement .xaml files do is duplicate the marquee with a blur effect on the background while the original marquee has a drop shadow, a technique often seen on TV when dealing with Vertical Video Syndrome material (a terrible disease btw, but that's another topic)

Installation:
Go to the theme folder of your choice: Launchbox\Themes\*name of the theme*\Views 

note: If you use the default Big Box theme first copy and paste the default theme folder and name it anything you like, it's important to do this as the default theme will always overwrite any changes you make in that folder.

Backup the following files! In case you want to revert back to these Marquee files: GameMarqueeView.xaml and PlatformMarqueeView.xaml
Extract the .xaml files in the zipfile to this folder, start BigBox and see the magic unfold ;)

Have fun.

Nice! Do you know sir, if it is possible to get the marquee screen to show multiple images? I would like it to show both front and rear box art.

Thanks :) As far as I know the marquee environment is currently limited to only the marquee binding image, if you try to add another binding image it will automatically revert the binding to the marquee so it gets doubled, however you can add an external image like I did with the marquee border here: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/1726-realistic-marquee-monitor-fx/

Thank you so much for this.  My 25" 21:9 ultrawide marquee looks amazing now.

Glad to hear you enjoy it :)
