Yes, for now, it's preliminary version. I have a lot of ideas, new view and things to fix in the near future!

Here are planned development axes:
COLORFUL_logo_multi.thumb.png.4025d537344bb3030f1ca223d0444c53.png

  • COLORFUL Theme¬†:¬†The main hub, a unique interface for BigBox.
  • COLORFUL Platform Video :¬†Complete 4K video set, with a unique design.
  • COLORFUL Source :¬†(soon)¬†To involve the community in the platform video creation.
  • COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : (soon)
  • COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon)
  • COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon)

# HERE IS COLORFUL THEME FOR BIGBOX:
On this page we are talking about COLORFUL Theme for BigBox:
Design for work with my platform video set, COLORFUL THEME is thought to be used on the big screen (TV) in gaming console mode.
Modern, elegant and animated are the key words of this interface.

# I NEED YOUR HELP : PATREON ?
Same problem as with my video set !
Creating  videos & theme takes a loooooot of time. And I have to deal with a full-time CGI artist job and 2 young kids.
So I opened a Patreon page that could allow me to dedicate days on my work time to continue creating video.
I'm not trying to get rich, but like everyone else, I cant spend 1 day/week working for free! I hope you understand.
If the project interests you: Here is my Patreon page.

# IN DETAIL ?
The main features :

  • 16:9 only. (Works on other¬†ratio, but with black bands)
  • Full 4K asset.¬†(Any resolution must work, up to 4K)
  • Totally responsive. No resolution deformation on text size or¬†placement.
  • Because of the white background, some ClearLogo comes with the theme. (because white on white ... we see nothing)
  • Gamepad connection indicator & battery level.

# RECOMMENDATION ?
Any design choice gives limitations. Here are some recommendations for this theme :

  • LaunchBox/BigBox v.10.0 (and up)
  • VLC highly recommended.
  • Design for work with COLORFUL platform video set. (but you can use any video you what)
  • Beware of all white ClearLogo. They will be invisible!
  • I didnt test this¬†theme on a lowend configuration. There may be slowdown. (Curious to have your feedback on this subject!)

# COOL, HOW TO DOWNLOAD ?
2 ways : 

  1.  In Windows : Right here, with the download button. Extract the "Colorful" folder and place it in your "LaunchBox/Themes" directory.   (dont rename it!)
  2.  In BigBox : Option > Theme manager > Found "COLORFUL".

I love the theme. Only it's so bright. Its beautifully designed, and has everything I would want a theme to have. I would like to see it in gray, with darker text, and darker icons. Other than that, spot on. Would it be ok, if I modified the colors, provided I did not distribute it?

Response from the author:

A dark version is already planned. I juste want to fix bug and feature before work on it ūüėÉ

The best theme (by far) for BigBox. According to my tastes of course :) You are an excellent graphic designer and I hope to see your productions for a long time. I am impressed by the attention to details and the intelligent use of space. Never overloaded, always super stylish, clean and responsive.
Bravo!

This is beautiful! Insta-switched to the theme the moment I saw it in the announcement video. Perfect mix, to me, of flashy and cleanly designed. Not gaudy, but visually interesting. Love the intro videos as well. Haven't had any issues just yet. There is a TINY bit of slowness when switching platforms to load up the video, but I presume that's something to do with BigBox and how it loads video rather than something to do with the theme.

I prefer the made-for-theme platform videos, but it worked fine with my default videos before I used LB to get them.
