About This File

WoodPanels has the old school retro feel of playing games on an old TV in a room with bad, green carpeting, but golden wooden paneled walls.  The video game console or platform appears above or beside the television to match that look and feel.  It is paired with a set of 8-bit fonts to complete the experience.

  • Designed for 16:9 screens on a 1080p monitor (need feedback on different resolutions)
  • Platform navigation features device images for 40 platforms.
  • Games list view features device images for 40 platforms with support for game videos, game 3D/2D box art, game cart images (SNES, N64, Genesis, 32X, and Jaguar only).
  • Consoles are paired with one of four different TVs from the same decade they were released (70s, 80s, 90s, 00s)
  • "Wall View" for looking at game boxes on shelves is accompanied by the platform logo and image of the original console packaging.
  • WoodPanels Startup Video is here!
  • Alternate all-wood background available below, just unzip it under Launchbox/Themes/ and overwrite the default one.

Trailer:

Instructions:
1. Unzip in LaunchBox/Themes/WoodPanels. In BigBox under Options>Views>Theme> choose "WoodPanels"
2. To ensure you're viewing the image of the console and TV alongside the game list, go into the BigBox Menu (hit Esc on your keyboard or back on your controller) and select "View Platforms".
3. To view the carousel of devices in your platform view, go into Options>Views>Platform List View> and select "Platform Wheel 1".
4. Lastly, to make sure you keep this view the next time you start BigBox, go into Options>Views>Default Startup View> and select "Platforms".
5. For N64, SNES, Jaguar, Genesis, and Sega 32X, you need to download the game cart images AND you need to set your LaunchBox settings so your fallback images are disabled for this, otherwise when you have a missing game cart image it will pull something else and look...bad.  LaunchBox Options>Legacy>Images>Cart Front Priorities>Uncheck all but "Cart - Front"
6. To enable a the "Wall View", change BigBox Options>Views>Games List View>Wall View.  Switch it back to "Text List with Details" if you decide to go back.

Great stuff. I would echo what the review says with regards to adding additional backgrounds and screens according to taste. Keep up the good work and I look forward to what you do next.

I'm really digging the style and simplicity of this theme! However, it would be great if the box artwork were somehow incorporated into the games list layout. Otherwise, fantastic work!

Great theme !

I just change the background for something abstract, it makes the theme more in my taste!

I love it, thank you very much for your work :)

Hi ! Sorry for my late reply, well it's not a crazy custom.. because I just got an abstract background from Google image... It could be better, but I pretty like it like this :-)

Hi everyone please fill out this brief survey which will help inform me of whether or not to include support for cart images (certain platforms only) in the next major version:

Edit: Closed!  The people have spoken, and this has been done.  Please see the latest version.
