What's New in Version 0.0.2   See changelog



  • Added a custom layout to the system menu for playlists
    (due to the fact I have little to no playlists yet this is pretty basic so far,
    I plan to release a pack that adds playlists with their notes, art & game list in the near future)
  • In the current state you are able to use it, but it takes some time setting it up to look good.
    it uses the "\LaunchBox\Themes\RetroRoots\Images\Playlists\Device" path to look for the graphical elements
  • if you want text to show, you need to add it to the playlist notes in LB itself untill I release a playlist pack.


  • Redone the whole thing to make it more flexible for future adjustments & custom layouts
  • Adjusted the positioning of the video & content foor better looks
  • Adjusted the height of the platform notes to make it more uniform across all platforms
  • Added the total game count as a label
  • Uploaded the source file to the monotone vector logos.
  • Renamed some platform clear logos to match the LB defaults
    (be aware that there might be cases where the logo doesn't render, this is possibly the
    cause of wrong file name, in that case look in the RetroRoots image folder and under
    platforms/clear logo's rename the corresponding file. This is due to the fact I still need
    to move most of my systems from my old front end over to LB.)

System categories:

  • Fixed an issue where the icon animation woudn't render upon first render
  • Moved the category menu wheel closer to the video to match the initial design
  • Added fade-in-out gradients to the wheel to make the focus on the active item stand out more
  • Adjusted the speed of the menu wheel

Game wheel horizontal:

  • Some polishing
  • Like 10
  • Thanks 2
  • Unusual Gem 3
