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.

http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCALHDoR8oQifl6sbIrdrW6w

 

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.

A play button image? 

@horse(y2guru correct me if I'm wrong) You need to publish your theme to see the final result, you will not have an optimal result and you will not see for sure the modifications you made without it. In any case at home without publishing the theme, I am like you, I see almost nothing of what I have before. I am sure that in a few months we will most certainly have real time previews;)

The only thing you will not have real-time  previews of are the wheels ( graphical ) , if you are not seeing previews like my YouTube videos then there is a problem

I see that both game name and notes are being displayed so you have metadata from launchbox for that particular game, if you were to select that game in bigbox (with a default theme) would you see a video?    By the way what ui element are you using for the video onscreen?   Selected item video or User defined video?

No, that’s fine as that allows you to pull in and use 3rd party plugins

also i cannot get game description text to scroll , not in app nor bigbox, if the description does nto fit into designated field scroll does not scroll to reveal text that could not fit in, please advise

To get the Game Description to scroll make sure you use a low number in the scroll speed, I use "2" that was a mistake I was making thinking the higher the number the fast it would scroll :)

please go to your launchbox file path, for example... D:\LaunchBox\Data and send me the Platforms.xml file (send to me directly, not here) I have a sneaky suspicion that the location of your meta data images, videos etc.. differ to mine and others, which is not your issue, its mine as I need to cater to that, I just want to confirm that's the issue.
