Nostalgia Playlist Videos 1.0.5

About This File

Greetings all, 

I've been a huge fan of the Nostalgia video sets that Viking and Dragon57 created and have been using them on my Big Box for a long while at this point.

A few months back I asked them for permission and access to the source files for the playlist set and they generously provided them (to everyone!)

I've been pretty busy since that time but lately I've been working on various playlist/genre videos in the style of the "Playlists" video from that set. 

Feel free to edit them as well. 

Thanks again to Viking and Dragon57 for making these possible.

I've made a matching Clear Logo Set that can be found here:

This is great! Many thanks! Could you maybe also post some kind of templates (e.g. where only videos/images/music have to be inserted) so others can easily make their own too? I'm not in the need for custom ones now, but I could see myself wanting to make those in the future :P

I agree with @Landcross, if it's even possible to make a template. Lately I've been obsessed not with Genre playlists, but with Series. Creating a Playlist based on series of games in chronological order. If its at all possible for laymen to make these, I'd throw my hand in too. 

Either way, these are awesome. Keep it up!

I'll put together a write up of what I do along with the templates into a zip file and add that in when I upload the next couple files.

If there any particular series I can add them to the to do list. Making the final video is pretty easy as it's just replacing some files in the template. Toughest/longest part is finding/prepping the relevant sub videos to put in, so if there are particular games you'd prefer on the the screens I'm always open for the suggestions. That and I debate far to long on which music to add in and what image to use for the center.

Had the flu which knocked me out for a bit but I was able to put together the template files and guide, they are in the demo.zip file found on the 1.0.3 changelog.

the OP hasn't been on the site since August 28th so may not be dead but he also doesn't frequent the forums on a regular basis.

Sorry, mid coaching season for me so I don't have a chance to check in often. Some of those requested I should be able to do when I get a bit more free time. The limiting factor on some of the requests is that ideally you want to have at least 8 games in a series or you'll wind up with duplicate screens.
