Huge thanks goes out to @y2guru for his Community Theme Creator Software and his endless personal help, also he created the animated wheels for this theme! @Hexxxer for the original inspiration of his FutureState theme. @Rincewind for the inspiration on his use of the icons. Thanks guys!


This is the final version of Neon Deluxe Arcade, it's completely rebuild from the ground up. The old theme was slow, I couldn't even run it in 4K but with this rebuild it runs even smoothly with 4K theme graphics.
This theme looks the same in any DPI setting now but it's only for 16:9 views.


1. Download the theme here and place the folder in Launchbox/Themes/

2. You might need to unblock all the .DLL's in the plugin folder, I usually don't have to though.

3. I recommend doing the following to speed up Big Box greatly: 

 - Uncheck all Background Images in launchbox/settings/image priorities
 - Set all transitions to "None" in BigBox settings
 - Use the Clean Up media tool in launchbox/tools/Clean Up Media... (this can really speed up lists with thousands of games and duplicate media)
 - Defrag the drive that holds your media files

Hope you like and enjoy! 🤘


Neon Deluxe Arcade is a series of themes and elements, if you like you can download these to accompany the complete theme, visit this page to see all my other work:

What's New in Version 1.5   See changelog


- More consistent look of selector images and fonts in menu's and text lists

- Wheel3gamesview, Textgamesview and game details view now has the arcade cabinet showing as it was intended to for a long time, if no arcade cabinet exists it will fall back to box back images, so no need to fiddle with image priorities anymore to show the arcade cabinet in place. All thanks to @y2guru for his new visibility condition options in the new community theme creator v.
