Community Theme Creator for BigBox 1.0.8.98

   (11 reviews)

About This File

The Community Theme Creator for BigBox is still in development and should be treated as an Alpha build, however it has enough features in place that would allow you to start building your own Themes.

(Please see Pyramids by @Rincewind)

 

As I have no documentation at this point, please visit my YouTube Channel as I demonstrate some of the various features.

Installation

1. Download .zip file

2. Unblock (right click on the .zip file, select properties and click on Unblock)

3. Unzip where ever you like

4. Go to the unzipped folder and go to folder ".Install these fonts first to allow the demo theme to load correctly in the editor"

5. Install the 2 fonts (these are only needed for the included Theme)

6. Click on the "COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox.exe"

7. Fill out the setup properties (userid / name and location of the BigBox.exe )

 

8. Enjoy!

 

FYI.  If you wish to design a Theme in either 4:3 or 16:9 or any other aspect ratio then simply change your windows desktop settings to the desired resolution and open the editor.

Thanks a lot!

Can you do me a favor, when you publish and the blue progress box is displayed in the bottom right, note the last thing it was doing before you get the exception window, it looks like it completed copying all the required fonts but I cannot tell

Please zip up the published theme and send to me, I can’t look at it until much later as I have my day job to finish first

There you got. Many thanks!

downloading now,  but I have to ask... did you install the fonts that I supplied within the main folder?  folder is called... ".Install these fonts first to allow the demo theme to load correctly in the editor"

I dont think you did as I do not see them in the published theme folder you sent me, however you have discovered a bug I must fix...… cannot copy a font that does not physically exist on your system 🙂

thanks you.

That's interesting because those same fonts should have been copied to the published theme and they were not, so … as you are using windows 7 I have a sneaky suspicion that the fonts are housed in a location I am not aware of, can you locate the installed fonts on your drive and send me the file path.  thank you

ok, this is the path C:\Windows\Fonts

ok, I have that.  I may have to create a special build that will report issues encountered when analyzing fonts and send that to you.

Thank you very much for all you effort.

I have another problem that I have not mentioned before. I have not given importance because it is something visual. It refers to the menu, the icons appear very large. ¿?

I downloaded yesterday the ZIP.

I have the impression that I must be missing something obvious, as I can't find any other user with a problem similar to mine, but I can't make it work not matter what I try. I have done all the steps (unlock ZIP, extract,install fonts)
After entering the Author and BigBox path I just get a grey window, with only the min-max-close buttons, not even a title, or menus, ... nothing 

I am on Windows 10, v 1903, build 18362.535

Any help would be really appreciated. Thanks very much!
