About This File

Hello everyone!

My Name is Filipe and i've been making some themes for emulationstation, specially for the Retropie version. I've bought a license on the last Black friday sale and started to messing with Launchbox and i loved it! it's such an awesome frontend!
I started to learn about custom themes and made a port of one of my ES themes to Launchbox. I hope you like it!
Special thanks for @CriticalCid for all the help and for his awesome theme, without it, i surely wouldn't understand XAML for sure!

 


What's New in Version 1.2.0   See changelog

Released

Version 1.2 - Fixed most of font and resolution resize problems. Also customized options and music screens. Added more systems and playlists.

I just picked up a Pi 3 pretty recently and messed around with quite a few themes in Retropie and this is one of my favorites for it. Thrilled to see it here on Launchbox! Thank you and keep up the great work!

I'll look into it, it's strange because i don't use the game details in detail view, i've made a new stack for it

replacing GameDetailsView.xaml from v1.1 with file from 1.0 fixes problem so i would look there

So glad you got around to doing this! I remember requesting permission to do this theme and you went so far as to make art lacking the raspberry pi logos, but I only got to work on it for a few days before getting swamped by medical issues and life. As such, ive rarely been around. Im quite happy to see that not only was this theme made, but was made by the artist himself!

I love your artwork! Would love to see your take on the BigBox Logo too in your signature style <3

Yeah, i remember. I was receiving requests from people asking to make systems to windows emulationstation and attract mode, then you asked to port it from launchbox, but i didn't had a license. I remember saying in facebook when someone asked about it, that i didn't want to be in the way of other people creativity, so i always shared my google drive folder for anyone that wants to port the theme to other FEs. Only problem was that people asked for PSDs and i did all the art on Illustrator and Sai tools, so i didn't had (i only use photoshop for 3D texture and photos, don't know why, but my wacoms never worked well with Photoshop).

But i'm glad you like it and i hope that everything is well. Thanks a lot for the kind words!

Well, I'll gladly welcome you to us. Your work on Emulation Station speaks for itself. I dont think I can get enough of your work. Are you thinking about porting SwineApple too?

Thanks! i probably will, but i want to work more on the rock theme first and add some new covers for retrorama too

 

Cool. I personally favor Retrorama. Was just curious. Any plans in making a doodle rendition of the BigBox Logo? I'd like to play with it in after effects when/if you do.

Any update on those new platforms you were working on? I've been heartbroken to switch themes but I have far too many that are unsupported by retrorama.. My dream is swap back as I cant get enough of your art!
