About This File

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).

Hi looks great but I get a True fonts error whenever I try to change any of the Game fonts to the Pixel Noir. I am running version 8.8. Thanks

Have you hardcoded a specific font into the theme, meaning it errors out when its changed out for another?

I think it's because LaunchBox requires TrueType fonts. I assume Pixel Noir is not a True Type font?

I'm not sure what it is about that font that doesn't work, but I can replicate it here as well. Windows Forms is just refusing to accept it. I'm not sure why it's working for @harryoke.
