NEON DELUXE ARCADE - FINAL

-----------------------------------------------------
CREDITS

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!

-----------------------------------------------------
INTRO

This is the final version of Neon Arcade Deluxe, 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 in 4K.
This theme looks the same in any DPI setting now but it's only for 16:9 views.

-----------------------------------------------------
INSTALLATION

1. Download the theme from Big Box's theme manager or download the zip file 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! 🤘

Looks great !

The theme doesn't show yet in big box themes for me so i downloaded it manually but it doesn't display the weels even in the settings menu, it shows only the background :/

Here is a screenshot of the error message i get when i blindly press some buttons (it sends me back to a default theme). It does the same with the beta and the final version ! Hope you can fix it cause your themes are amazing :)

Themes available through Bigbox have to have a rigorous testing phase before being allowed into the app, thats if it has even been submitted for testing.

As for your error that looks like a region conversion error, likely caused by accents or number differences in @y2guru's theme creator, or a oversight by @Mr. RetroLust.

You are right, i switched launchbox to english and it looks like it solved the problem :D 

So looks like there is a conflit with the french language but that's not too big of a deal, at least for me, so don't worry !

Thanks, bug sorry 😩

DId you use the 12hr version? I just fixed an error where images where not linked right. Or do you use the regular version and your language is set to French by any chance? Can you supply a screenshot of the bug?

Sweet! The best LaunchBox theme just got even better, absolutely loving the new detail/arcade view, especially after changing flat box fronts to clear logos (which also sorts out arcades with missing marquess), now it just looks crazy awesome, well done boety, you've elevated the emulation experience/scene to a whole new level and I solute you and your beast like efforts... Thank you!

Big Merci @Mr.RetroLust !  Same thing here, she doesn't like French, 😭 and my question will seem silly but how do we change the language and switch to English (I didn't even know it was possible)😮

Edit :It was under my nose I found thank you!

Yes! I can't wait to get home and test it out! Faster than its predecessor? Sign me up! My PC struggled a lot with that one, so hopefully I can run this one :D

Thank you Lust for sharing your creations.

It is my favorite theme.

My only complain is that I never found exactly what is the difference between the Wheel types 

Also I cannot understand what is horizontal in Horizontal Game Wheels (I still get vertical wheel without clear logos).

Any clarification, appreciated.

Keep up the good work man!

Thanks man glad you enjoy it :) That is weird though, you should have horizontal wheels where horizontal wheels are coded and visa versa with vertical wheels, don't know what else to say lol maybe reinstall the theme?

Love this theme. been using it since it came out and doubt i will ever switch it. However it is just missing a startup video for Big Box mode. Any chance someone could make one at some point? Just the finishing touch it needs and will be perfect! 😃

I am of the same opinion, I love the layout, with the info part and the screens on the left and the theme is just perfect for the Clear logos / icons and this attention to details we feel that there has been passion and memories  .

I make you a short version of the first theme and I would add another short format 30 sec :)
