Default assets - Extract to Platforms directory 1.8.0

About This File

Note: using these requires LaunchBox 9.10 beta 1, or above.

The files in the attached archive are the start of my effort to create 'default' images for most of my installed platforms. Copy the archive to your <launchbox install directory>\Images\Platforms directory and extract there. Start Launchbox, select your matching platform names, then refresh all images. Any missing media in your same image categories as mine should now show up (you may have to rename some of the extracted directories if they don't match the platform names in LaunchBox). I modeled most of these on graphic types from EmuMovie assets. Please feel free to make requests, or post your own default images.

Awesome thanks for these, really makes some of my systems missing 3D boxes look a lot better. :) 

I was wondering if you could do a 3D box for arcade, preferably to match @Mr. RetroLust's 3D boxes, he does provide this template for them.

Was also wondering if you plan to make images for more systems? The ones for which artwork is rather hard to come by would be ideal, for example Fairchild Channel F, Bally Astrocade, Emerson Arcadia, Magnavox Odyssey 2, among others :)

Yes, I plan to add Arcade and use RetroLust assets to do so.

Yes, I plan on creating assets for a large number of systems, including those you listed.

Great work on these.  I just made this... thought I'd post it here in case anyone else finds it useful. I'm a fan of slightly more color than just the black boxes is all :)

I love this idea in theory -- in practice I'm not sure if I'm overlooking something obvious but I can't get these to show up! I've extracted the files to the correct directories, checked the names of the platforms, tried refreshing again and again -- and nothing. What am I doing wrong?

Does LaunchBox still display the default box for your missing media?

Ah. No. It displays a broken image icon. Sounds like I'm unaware of something pretty fundamental!

You are running the latest beta version of LaunchBox, right?

Sorry I don't think I described that well. The tiny Launchbox icon that shows up when an image is missing. 1843213901_Annotation2019-07-04154026.thumb.png.ba5ffe23df0631b84063726a49f9c3d2.png

Ha ha, yep that would do it.

 @dragon57 probably be best to add to the description that the beta i think 9.10 beta 2?? is needed for these to work. :)

Actually its 9.10 beta 1 and up. @Bellingham you can update to the beta by turning them on in Tools/Options/Updates, or you will need to wait for the 9.10 official release in order to use the default images.

I wanted to propose to those following/reading this thread that you post your requests for additions. I haven't had any time to work on anything new yet, but I did start to look at the systems @bundangdon listed above. Bally Astrocade stood out as being rather complete when I look at the Launchbox database, so I can't see the need, at least not right away, to create default media for this system. Am I missing something related to this?

Regardless, please start to post your requests so I can lend a critical eye on them and start to gather art for my use. Thanks!

Bally Astrocade does have a handful of missing boxes, while the Fairchild Channel F has a fair share of missing ones as they're both slightly obscure systems. A few more that could use default boxart are the Emerson Arcadia, Magnavox Odyssey 2 and RCA Studio II. Once again, really appreciate the effort and thanks a lot for sharing these!

I'm working on Fairchild Channel F  now. I'll circle back and get Astrocade next.

Thanks for the feedback!

Here is what I have for Fairchild Channel F. Comments welcome.

Note: I have not updated the original archive with these yet. I thought I would wait until I had a few new systems finished before doing that.
