About This File

Ok, so this is a re-make of the PausePie theme by @faeran. He made a very nice and clean pause theme that I love and have used since it was first released, Thank you Faeran! I modified and tweaked it quite a bit so that it would match the startup theme I made called Simple Detailed Startup. Credit goes to faeran for the original work, most of which is still in use. Please enjoy this pause menu and keep on gaming!

@faeran, I will be glad to remove this if you request at anytime.

What is it?

  • This is a very simple pause menu with some basic animated GIF's.
  • It displays info about the game and artwork. 
  • Designed to go best with the Colorful Theme by @viking

How to use it:

  • Just unzip this to your Launchbox PauseThemes folder and then select it in BigBox and Launchbox.

I hope I am not forgetting anything, please let me know if you have any problems or questions.

PS: I have also made a Startup Theme to match.


What's New in Version 1.0.2   See changelog

Released

Updated: Just made better image alignment and place holders. Little smoother now.

I really like it. Nice work!

Constructive tip: make the left and right padding values of the clear logos more than 0, so there is a small white border all around (i.e. in the Alien vs Predator example you shared you can see the choke on the sides).

This looks great, Ill try it tonight. I love the Colorful theme, so this will be a perfect addition.

Suggestion:
I am trying to find a good solution for showing my controls for each game (especially for MAME). There is a specific folder that BigBox uses for showing this image, it is called "Arcade - Controls Information", which is where you store the games controls layout image (ones I have created specifically for my arcade sticks/spinner/ball/buttons).  It would be nice if you could somehow add another text selection in the Pause screen called "Show Controls" that will bring up the image stored in the games  "Arcade - Controls Information" folder. Is this even possible?
Thanks for listening to my suggestions!

Yep, That is exactly what I need to do. I will add that in both my startup and pause themes. Thank you for the tip!

I love that idea, I am currently working a few similar ideas to this. Right now the pause menu only shows the available options that the platform or emulator offers and I do not know how to change it. But, in time a may figure it out. I will drop you a line if I do. That would be a cool addition!

Great to hear you want to add it. Please do let me know when/if you add it and I can help beta test it for you if needed. I think it will be a great addition for people like myself that have their own custom arcade sticks and controllers.
