@Thanos Reigns I created them myself over a year ago on the Old Forum site, i have not one done for the PC engine but if i had a full list of working platforms i would start next week creating new banners for platforms that i havn't done.  But only for working Platforms not the likes of xbox etc that have no viable proper working emulators as yet.

@Ninja Danny B If you are on about the platform views and want the small videos to play go into bigbox, options videos and untick show platform videos the small videos will now play.  If you want to use screenshots for the backgrounds, replace the platform backgrounds go to LaunchBox\Themes\Glass\Images\Platforms\Fanart folder and place your screenshots there make sure to name them to your platform names.  KUDOS for liking my theme.

@Maddoc1007 Thanks for the quick reply. Yeah I've got that with the platform views, it's after that when you have selected a platform and are browsing through your games. I am hoping there is a way to make my game videos display in the game screenshot window. Thanks again

For the Games views and you want the small videos to play go into bigbox, options videos and untick show games videos the small videos should now play, provided they are named after the games or the roms and are in their proper folder, if you have them in a different folder you need to show LaunchBox where they are.  In LaunchBox on the menu bar go to Tools, down to Manage Platforms, click on each platform in turn, then click on the Folders Tab, then click on video, Browse and show LaunchBox where your Videos are located.
