About This File

 

Please note: This is not a complete theme. Instead, it is a set of themes, each one designed around a particular retro system.

Ever since BigBox allowed you to have different themes for each platform, I've wanted to undertake a project like this. The CoverBox project is one where my goal is to recreate retro console's boxart as a BigBox Theme. Each Theme will consist of 1 or 2 game views, specifically designed for 1 system in mind. This is NOT a complete theme, but a game view meant to be used with your favorite theme of choice.

I will be trying to make each theme in this set as light-weight as possible, trying to get the best performance out of Bigbox. Each theme is designed for 1080p.

P.S. I created graphic assets for the star ratings. Please feel free to use them in your theme.

Most of the themes utilize the HelperControl by @NJDave71 and ListBox Scroll Center for BigBox by @Grila  (Thanks!).

Possibly the cleanest and most visually pleasing and well organized set of themes on the site imo. So glad to be able to use these. Makes the experience that much better!

The nes one sold me straight away. It's super nostalgic. I don't know why the black sleeve makes me so nostalgic but it does. I now use all of these as my main. If you could do sony ones, I'd really appreciate it. 

There is  problem I did notice. not sure if there is a way around this but on the ones that hide the game list to show the box art, it does this even after you've chosen the game. the worst part is that it doesn't go away if you're picking options within the specific game menu. so it means you have to do menu stuff pretty fast or constantly change the theme if you want to place a game in favorite or add it to a list.
This issue does make me want to not use the specific ones that have this feature though. but beyond that, these are all very nostalgic themes.

What I love most about these themes is that the game details option doesn't change the game view. I haven't seen any other themes integrate the game details into the game view like this before.

Very great work sir @faeran , but I do not understand, the stars are not displayed in big box.

I have yet updated the metadata in launchbox...

I love the idea !

thanks

One of the best theming projects on the site, next to Emulation Station and the GPD Win theme. However the major criticism I have that stops this collection from being ideal is all the inconsistencies across the themes. What I mean is things like:

  • PS1 theme has a scanline effect on the videos (which I love), but not the others.
  • Sega Saturn theme features the covers/discs being spun around after X amount of time (which I hate), but you don't have a choice to disable this if you don't want it.
  • Following this, the N64 theme doesn't seem to rotate covers/carts at all while the PS1 theme gives you a choice.
  • Sega Saturn theme puts clear logos at the bottom for some reason.
  • Etc

All these inconsistencies just makes each theme stand out in a bad way, beyond just the cover art. I believe it's in the author's best interest to sit down and decide what exactly he/she wants for every theme in the project and apply it equally across all themes. Otherwise, this is fantastic work and I hope to see more platforms added soon.

4/5

The individual system themes really add a nice touch to the overall feel and give a sense of uniqueness to my overall setup. I'm pretty confident these themes will be the default going forward and would love to see more systems supported in the future. Seriously, well done work and thanks for the contribution!

These look slick, thank you so much.

My only comment for minor improvement would be the game selection text on the Master System theme is really difficult to read.  Otherwise, these are perfect!

Would love to see Game Gear

These are AMAZING themes!! WOW! Turned my setup into a beautiful nostalgia temple. Would especially love to see Playstation, PS2, Atari 2600 in the future :) Thank you SO much for creating and sharing these.

These are my favorite custom platform themes I've used so far in BigBox, no contest. My only complaint is that Faeran hasn't made one for every system (lol). Seriously, spend a bit of time configuring these for your BigBox set up and I'm sure you'll agree with me. And if you have any questions I'm sure Faeran will help you out. Faeran has responded to every question I've had. I cannot recommend these themes enough.
