Part of the Neon Deluxe Arcade series but this can be used for any theme to spice up your marquee monitor :)

The FX are composed of different layers of scratched plexi glass, reflection, light and other grungy and dusty layers to get as close to realism as possible, see in the video below how it's been composed.

4. Pick the style you like and overwrite the GameMarqueeView.xaml file in the 'your theme of choice/Views' folder, might be a good idea to back up the file first however.

Additional note: If you see gaps at the sides of the marquee you'll have to adjust the margins, the current margins work for 21:9 displays but on other aspect ratios it needs adjustments. Open up the GameMarqueeView.xaml with a notepad editor and check for "Margin="100,70,100,70", change the values of 100 to a lower or higher number.

Enjoy and have fun! 🤘

Version 1.3

Corrected stretching of the overlay images to stretch to every aspect ratio screen (Thanks @Dynamite Jewduh for making me aware of the problem)

Rewritten the instructions including an important note: "Additional note: If you see gaps at the sides of the marquee you'll have to adjust the margins, the current margins work for 21:9 displays but on other aspect ratios it needs adjustments. Open up the GameMarqueeView.xaml with a notepad editor and check for "Margin="100,70,100,70", change the values of 100 to a lower or higher number."

Great mod that adds a little realism to your marquees. I recommend this mod to anyone using a 2nd monitor setup in BigBox!
