About This File

What is it?

CoinOps Redux is a port of CoinOps Next to BigBox, co-created with @Klopjero.

The theme has been developed using the Community Theme Creator (all the credit to @y2guru) and should display correctly in both 16:9 and 4:3 ratios.

As in the case of CoinOps, it relies on 1120x1080 fanart images for game wheel views.

Big thanks to BritneysPAIRS and the CoinOps team for their work in CoinOps and for their amazing theme design.

Views

It includes the following BigBox views:

- 4 platform views.

- 2 game wheels for arcade based systems.

- 2 game wheels for non-arcade based systems.

- 2 horizontal game wheels.

- Systems view.

Supporting more than 130 systems.

For platform views, we suggest to use @viking colorful videos.

Files available

[CoinOps Redux 1.0.zip] The BigBox theme files. Just uncompress and copy / paste to Launchbox\Themes folder. All platform background images are included in the file.

[Platforms] Sets of fanart images (1120x1080) for several platforms. If you want to use them, just unzip and copy / paste to Launchbox\Images\[Platform]\Fanart - Background.

* It is also possible to use the fanart packs uploaded by @RedSnake for his DarkRoom theme (or use these in DarkRoom).

Can you be a little bit more specific? In which view do you get a freeze?

I noticed this too. It could be bigbox it self as i didnt have this problem with 11.6.

Its a weird thing. As it seems to occur random.. as if its a caching problem. When BB froze and I closed the application. it wouldnt freeze at that same point (cave)

I cannot reproduce the issue. I've been playing with it for 15 minutes, going back and forth, without a problem. I used to have freezes, every 1 minute or so, but they dissapeared as of version 11.6. I'll keep on testing...

how can you help?  an error report?

Thanks

Sorry with my english, i m french

In fact, that would be really helpful. Please, activate the debugging logs and post them here once you get the freeze. Not that I can do anything about it, but probably y2guru or Jason can identify the issue.

I will keep on testing to try to reproduce the problem.

Put this on today on a friends. Love it. He'll be leaving this on for a while. I turned the "games details page" off

Would of been easier if he'd call the platforms what they are meant to be called. Easy to fix once you know how.

Nice, really nice, i tried it today and i like it. Now i will check the different viewes. Which is the perfect view for Arcade?

Thanks!

We have 2 views for Arcade, wheel games view 1 and wheel games view 2, being the main difference that the latter displays also the 3D box, title and description of the game.

@CMOSS

I am getting freezing too. It forced a BigBox crash which was reported to @Jason Carr through the automated process. Hopefully he can share what ever data was in that with the theme author, as I didn't copy it. I am on the latest LB/BB beta

I'm coming out, What a job bravo dude! Similar I had some mini slowdowns (very light) but I think it must come from the respective configurations of each, must be said that there is a media package to tell the truth more than my customs lol congrat's again it's the version 1.1 you have time to improve it;)

in all here in France in full confinement you will make people happy, I pass the links to my closed group friends;)

Did you try changing to Windows Media Player as reported by @Nyny77?

Thanks man! Yes, it took me a while to compile the background images. I still have quite a few more packages to share. I will keep on posting them here in due time.

Looks interesting, but two things:

1) I think you need to give more credit to original CoinOps creators (actually BP already noticed that and he is right).

2) Any plans to "port" Next 2 to LB?

Pretty solid theme! There was one thing I did notice however. If I open a multi-platform playlist in the vertical wheel view, the video window is forced to 4x3. Is there a way to have it set on a per-platform/video basis?

Also, I really like the horizontal wheel view for the platforms. Any chance you could do something like that for the game views?

@NLS @Chazer you are both totally right. If either BritneysPAIRS or any of the CoinOps team is on the forum, please let us know. We'll add their names.

Yes, that is somehting on our minds. It is not straightforward, though, as there are things that would require the development of a plugin.

Can you post a screenshot of the problem? We will take a look.

That's actually a good idea. We will give it a thought to add a couple of horizontal game wheels for the next update.
