    Giving full credit to faeran for creating the great coverbox themes originally I present a modified Genesis theme to fit the Sega 32X. It includes the original copperplate font referenced by the theme. Unzip the file to your Launchbox/Themes directory Install the copperplate font located in the fonts folder if you haven't already navigate to your 32X platform in bigbox set the theme to coverbox 32X Enjoy. I thank faeran for their great work on these and hope I'm not coming off as crass by aping these and making mods to them.

    BIGFLIX as the name suggests is a variation of Netflix for BigBox, the theme uses some assets from the popular streaming giant while offering a twist of its own. The theme introduces many features to enrich the user experience such as personalized user profile and banners support that takes the aesthetic looks to a whole new level. BIGFLIX was designed for users who enjoy using Big Box on a large HDTV and HTPCs with supported resolutions up to 4K but it should also scale nicely on PC monitors that supports 16:9 aspect ratio. As of BIGFLIX v1.1 and onwards, the theme will come in two variations: BIGFLIX: The original theme will stay faithful to the Netflix formula and is designed for users who wants authentic experience for their HTPCs that mimics the popular streaming giant UI. BIGFLIX PLUS: A theme variation of Bigflix created for the community using their feedback (i.e. keeping the original aspect ratios of videos and wallpapers, removing timer/buffer animations, fixing boxart overlapping for odd systems (PSX), weather and time plugin, Grilla's ListBox Scroll Center plugin, and many more! ). BIGFLIX Plus is constantly adapting to include latest community features while staying true to the original BIGFLIX experience.

    This is a collection of Sega Naomi 3D boxes with Discs. As the Naomi library has a lot of different versions of the same game and flyers are not available for a lot of games, and certainly not for all the different versions, I decided on one box and disc per game. These 3D boxes are loosely based around what a real Naomi game box looks like with real discs. I figured manuals could be used as box art.

    I have tried my hand at modifying the fantastic coverbox Sega CD theme by faeran to fit the Sega Saturn. I included the Saturn font inside the Fonts folder. Unzip the file to your Launchbox/Themes directory Go to the fonts folder and install the SegaSaturn font Go to bigbox and open your Sega Saturn window. Choose the CoverBox - Sega Saturn theme. Enjoy. Full credit to faeran for creating the theme. I just made some small modifications to it.

    Yeah, officially it’s written with a space even though I find it quite inconsistent considering LaunchBox is written without a space. I guess I'll just take what's going to look better in my eyes. Thanks again for your work! I’m not sure when I’ll release the update because I want to include some more things before I’ll release a new version and I’m currently taking a break from theming and focuse on some other projects of mine. I hope it won’t be too long before I come up with an update. Stay tuned guys

    Just put out beta 10 folks with Arrange By finally implemented in LaunchBox.Next. We're getting very close to the end; the only major thing I can think of that we're missing is controller features (game controller automation and being able to control LaunchBox.Next itself with the controller). Hopefully that won't prove to be very difficult and we can prep for the next official release by the end of next week. If there are any features other than this that you can identify as missing from the original LaunchBox, please let me know. I know there are some minor tweaking things that are missing, such as font and spacing controls, but other than that I think we're getting pretty close. I will look to add some additional options as far as displaying the boxes and such once we have everything else tackled. Oh, Jaron is working on getting the column hiding and ordering working in the list view, so there's that as well.

    Added a bunch of new features today and the file is now updated in the downloads section. Changelog Version 2.2 the plugin will now check if you have "Skip Game Details Screen" in your BigBox options and either launch the chosen game directly (Skip Game Details Screen enabled) or show the BigBox Games Detail Screen (Skip Game Details Screen disabled) Thanks @Kondorito for the suggestion you can now select a random game from your entire library by holding left to call the plugin. This adds back the functionality of the original version 1 plugin without the need to go to the System Menu. Thanks @FreeSoftwareServers for mentioning it in the thread the individual play-modes are now parsed and only shown once per occurrence in the list. Thanks @MayorQwert the plugin no longer reads the XML files, but now gets all its data directly from the API added a "No preferred play-mode" option to the platform and playlist views. Thanks @MayorQwert for the suggestion

    Today's update along with the announcement that I think this thing is ready to go. I just have to write up some documentation because this one can't just be dropped in the LaunchBox\Plugins folder (because of the built in UI). Added a custom display of the random selected game for those of you who have the default BigBox Game Detail's screen disabled or don't wish to use it. If you did like the way the old plugin used the BigBox Game Detail's Screen, you can still use this as an option by setting UseBigBoxGameDetailScreen="True" Here's a video of the new custom display: I'm going to start writing the docs and should have this thing ready to fly by tomorrow, hopefully. If @Jason Carr implements hotkeys to the API, I'll change the way it's called now to utilize that. Otherwise, we're stuck with what we currently have available, which is holding right to call it.

    This is a collection of Sega Naomi 2D boxes with Discs. As the Naomi library has a lot of different versions of the same game and flyers are not available for a lot of games, and certainly not for all the different versions, I decided on one box and disc per game. These 2D boxes are loosly based around what a real Naomi game box looks like with real discs. I figured flyers could be used as Manual covers inside the boxes.

    I just noticed that my theme was featured by @ETAPRIME on one of the videos at the official Unbroken Software channel. However, the version showcased was BIGFLIX 1.0 rather than the latest build: I do not blame anyone as this was my fault for not updating the theme page with the correct files and information, as an apology for my half-baked lazy attempt at updating the theme download page I present you with: BIGFLIX and BIGFLIX PLUS 1.2! Both themes have been updated to version 1.2 and with them comes new features and overhauls to BIGFLIX experience, please find below a changlog of BIGFLIX 1.2: The theme download page was also updated accordingly with the latest information and files so no more lazy documentation and user confusion this time around 😅 Thanks to everyone who contributed to this project and special thanks goes to @Klopjero for his amazing custom platform banners (more than 100 systems supported with latest update), @Grila and @NJDave71 for their plugins featured in BIGFLIX PLUS 1.2, and to @eatkinola, @CriticalCid and @Maddoc1007 for their tips and support in xaml coding Next stop: RetrAO Cafe 2.0

    Hi All, These are my Mame Bezel Art files which include a "Lay" file (so can be dumped straight into the Mame artwork folder once you unzip the main folder. These files will be ideal for use direct into Mame and on a tv with 16:9 view. Contains 124 files (letter S, Part 1) of bezel arts from the internet, oh plus some of my own that I've cloned into two different glass views. I've opted for the "Real Frame Clear" and "Real Frame Glass" effect and just done left and right sides rather than all round as that would just take way too long and also I found a lot of the bezels found on the internet just take up too much of the screen and to compensate this you have to change the screen size. (i've also included other versions found on the internet if you prefer those to the ones I used). Both mame formats 4:3 Horizontal and 3:4 Vertical have been done. Once placed in the Mame Artwork folder start a game and Tab to Video Options pick which one you prefer "Clear" or "glass" and then you have to make a slight adjustement within the "Slider" tab for both Screen Horizontal and Screen Vertical (usually around .966 for both) The games are taken from the rom set that I currently have so title names may slightly differ from the ones you have. (i'm happy to email anyone my Excel file with all the game names vs rom names, if needed) For the games that I could not find any artwork at all for, I've setup a few standard looking sets (6 Horizontal and 6 Vertical) which gives a view as if your in an actual arcade. ****Any comments or feedback would be much appreciated people***** Adam
