Neon Deluxe Arcade - LaunchBox Theme


Note: This thread will not be pushed to the front in the "whats new" section, if you want notifications for future updates to this file be sure to follow this page by using the follow button in the upper right corner.

As part of the complete 'Neon Deluxe Arcade' series (a follow up of Futurestate Neon Deluxe) this is the Launchbox Theme to accompany the Startup Theme and the Big Box theme which is still being worked on, you can follow the progress of this theme here. This theme does not use fanart or platform backgrounds but a static 4K quality background, there are 3 backgrounds to choose from in the themes images folder, the image you want to display should be named "Background-01.jpg". In order to get it working as you see in the screenshots please set your background settings to: settings.thumb.PNG.58bf1e70e2c58e151b7077f742276927.PNGCREDITS:
Huge Thanks to @Grila for the inspiration and his permission and kindness to use his codes for especially the left sidebar and more from his LBPlex Launchbox Theme. Also huge thanks to @Rincewind for the inspiration and his permission and kindness to use his code of the Rincewind Launchbox Theme for full screen background images. I couldn't have made it as it is without you guys!

More than I can mention, you just have to see it in action, one thing I can mention is that it features a bright green and slightly larger cache progress bar so you can't miss it when it's working to make a smooth experience :)

Install both the fonts located in "Fonts.zip" by double clicking each and choose install. Extract folder "Neon Deluxe Arcade LB" to Launchbox/LBThemes. Open Launchbox, go to Tools/Options/(Leftside bar) Visuals/Choose the theme in the dropdown bar. 

Tip: Tools/Options/Theme/Colors > Choose "Midnight Blue" for anything that was not possible to color change in Launchbox theming.

Hope you enjoy, have fun brothers! 🤘



What's New in Version 1.5   See changelog


Version 1.5 

  • Included in the images folder are the extra new backgrounds of version 1.4.
  • Overhaul of the game details panel, this includes the screenshots on top, making the panel wider will show you more screenshots and visa versa
  • Small fixes to fonts and margins to make it look tidy, and more but the screenshots below tell a better story

Note: I think the new game details panel looks very nice but If you don't you can easily copy "GameDetailsView.xaml" from v 1.4 and overwrite it.

Enjoy! 🤘

I've been using the default theme since I first installed LB quite a while ago. Just never really felt the need to change it. It was clean enough, efficient enough. But then I got the email today showing off some new themes, and I saw this one. And like a child seeing a puppy, I had to have it. I downloaded it immediately and installed it, and I've spent the past afternoon just gawking at how pretty it is. Seriously, as a child of the late 80s/early 90s the style of it is just perfect. It's so vibrant and so colorful, but it's not overpowering. The fonts are stylized and fit the theme, but they aren't overly animated or hard to read. It strikes that delicate balance between functionality and style absolutely flawlessly. I've adjusted the way my library is displayed just to better complement the theme. 

So glad I finally decided to add a new theme, cause let me tell you: feeding my monitor into a CRT with this theme just makes me feel warm and fuzzy inside.

This is retrosexylicious! Highly recommended if you work/play a lot in LB and love this kind of aesthetics.

Makes me use LB in full screen, instead of windowed which is how I had it before this theme.

The vibrant colors, background options and details, transports you; cant wait for its BB counterpart (no pressure Lust).


Response from the author:

Wow bro, thank you so much for this wonderful review! It's really an honor to get such a review, I try to create a world/feeling as I see it in my head, to see this world succeed in coming across in other peoples heads is a real reward :) The Big Box theme is going to take some time as its a real puzzle to make graphics wise as I want every detail fit in one view. The coding part will be even more difficult so I'm a bit torn if I should wait for the PASC editor to come out or go ahead before it's release. Anyway I'm typing too much again haha thanks brother! ;)

Stylish and simple, yet with a classic retro-style that fits perfect in any game collection setup! 😀
