About This File

This is my first startup theme that I’ve work on. I use Viking's COLORFUL Theme Dark for my Launchbox setup and I wanted a startup theme that uses the same colours, so I made this.

Big system logo on the left side
Developers logo in the bottom right corner
Load-bar and background uses the same colour as “COLORFUL platform video set”

Unzip the “StartingTheGame-Dark.zip” to your “..\Lunchbox\StartupThemes\“ folder. In Launchbox/BigBog select StartingTheGame-Dark as your startup theme and your good to go.

If you are using 1.0 or 1.01 please close launchbox/bigbox. Delete the startup theme and install the new one. On future release it should be fine to just extract and replace

* Uses the default colour, will be updated once it's added to the COLORFUL platform video set.

Add more Dev logos. About 200 logos so far, so there's a long way to go.
Add more Platform unique startups.

StartingTheGame-Dark.zip and StartingTheGame-Dark-NoLogo.zip are both meant for 16:9 screens. The NoLogo version has the clearlogo removed. And then there's the StartingTheGame-Dark-16-10, us this one if you are using a 16:10 screen.

@viking for his fantastic COLORFUL platform video set and COLORFUL bigbox theme
@Fry for helping me when I got stuck with the xaml coding
And everyone contributing to the COLORFUL platform video set
