    FUTURESTATE NEON DELUXE *Click follow to stay informed of important updates* ---Introduction--- This theme started out as a custom color skin for the FutureState theme by Hexxxer, I wanted to make something that would fit my gameroom's dark blue/purple blacklight lit environment, a bit like the good old dark arcades, where light plays an important role to the experience. It evolved after months of coding long, long... lloonng hours into this, I had to learn this coding language along the way, I hope it doesn't contain any errors and such. Huge thanks go out to @Hexxxer for his amazing theme (FutureState) framework, controls (HexControls.dll) and kind permission, without him I couldn't have done this. Also a huge thanks to @NJDave71 for making it possible to see the game count for playlists through HelperControl_v4.DLL which is included in this theme. Thanks guys! And everyone else for all the inspiration, enthusiasm and dedication. Enjoy please read these instructions well! ---Installation, Tips & Probable Issues--- 1. This theme uses images and video pretty heavy, it could run slow on older systems, I did add some faster/lighter views, try to see what works for you after you let the lists cache. Huge lists with thousands of games always run a bit slower as more data is being transfered. I recommend doing the following to speed up BigBox greatly: * Uncheck all Background Images in launchbox/settings/image priorities * Set all transitions to "None" in BigBox settings 2. This theme is probably only fit for use on a 16:9 aspect ratio, as I did use some absolute positioning of elements, I'm not very experienced yet to make a 4:3 relative positioning version, maybe someone else might be able to make such a version. 3. If you use a 4K display you probably have to set the Windows dpi settings to 200% in order to keep the layout intact. 4. The transparent cabinets you see in the screenshots are custom made and gathered images, most cab images around have a black background waiting on the community to chip in, make them transparent and upload them to the LBDatabase, I'll make some in the future as well. Cut outs of high resolution photos of cabinets give the best result obviously. You can find the cabinet package for CPS1 in 'FutureStateNeonDeluxe/_InstallationFiles/', see it as an example of what we can achieve together in the future. EDIT: See this project for more info: 5. Download the theme zip file and extract the content to Launchbox/Themes/ folder. 6. Install the font file, you can find it in the extracted folder FutureStateNeonDeluxe/_InstallationFiles/ 7. To make the placeholder work which shows the Cabinets/Advertisement Flyer - Back/Box Back in the screenshots needs some changes in your image priority settings within Launchbox. As the cabinets don't have their own placeholder to be coded in a theme I used the Cart 3D placeholder as I figured most people will only use one cart view or can set Cart 3D in image priorities to Cart Front. You can control a lot to your liking within image priorities, as long as you remember it's Cart 3D for this placeholder. My setup in image priorities within Launchbox options: 8. You might need to unblock the .DLL's in the plugin folder for them to work properly. ---Features--- Slide-in/out platform/game wheel, disappearing when not in use to make room for more possibilities. The logo's have a glow beneath them so you can still see black/dark logo's apart from the background. Special Marquee monitor filler magic trick (previously released to be used in other themes as well). Using the empty space around marquees in a special way. If you rather have the default marquee views just copy 'GameMarqueeView.xaml' and 'PlatformMarqueeView.xaml' from the default theme views folder and overwrite in this themes 'views' folder. And loads more... ---Views Description--- Platform View 1 (PlatformWheel1FiltersView) * A lot of Platform details * Device image * Large video/image with ambient/glow beneath it * Total games counter for platforms and playlists Platform View 2 (PlatformWheel2FiltersView) * Same as Platform View 1 except for a few differences * Fanart platform image in place of device image * Device image to the right side overlaying video/image Platform View 3 (PlatformWheel3FiltersView) * Same as Platform View 2 except for a few differences * Details panel makes room for full size video/image Platform View 4 (PlatformWheel4FiltersView) * Full screen video/image Platform View 5 (TextFiltersView) * Text list of Platforms * In the mid collumn Platform banner image, device image, fanart image * Even more details about the platform/playlist Games View 1 (WheelGamesView) * 2 Game Screenshots * Details I found useful * Game description * 3D box (You can switch image view on this placeholder with a button) with Cart image overlaying. * Cabinet/Back Box/Back Flyer overlaying on left side over video/image * Details overlaying video/image like your star rating, developer, publisher, genre, playmode. * Custom icons for Broken, Portable, Completed, Favorite and ESRB rating. * Platform logo in the middle * Scanlines overlaying the video/image Games View 2 (Wheel2GamesView) Same as Games View 1 but with Cabs/Back to the right side Games View 3 (Wheel3GamesView) Same as Games View 1 & 2 but without cabs/back and without scanlines over the video, for views which have high quality video's and/or theme video's Games View 4 (Wheel4GamesView) A view which might be more suitable for quick browsing, slower systems and require more game details. * Cab images without transparency look better in this view * Static logo wheel * Video below with glow beneath. The cabs/back images are filling the screen (maintaining aspect ratio) to the right for better readability of back covers and high quality cab images. I prefer this view for inspecting/sorting out my games. * Larger Icons right/below side. Games View 5 (TextGamesView) A view to see even more game details, without video, the idea here is you can see the front and back image side by side while being able to read the back image. As if you would hold the cover in your hand. * Static Text wheel * Many details * Large Icons * Box/Advertisement fronts beneath image * Cabs/Back to the right Games View 6 (GameDetailsView) Same as Games View 5

    Hi, I started working on Pause Menus for some different emulators (RetroArch, Dolphin, Demul, PCSX2 and KAT5200). I'm going to post the RetroArch one here. If people like it or are interested, I'll start posting my other ones as well. Please read the, Read Me.txt, file for info on how to set it up. The Dolphin Pause Menu has now been released in v1.03 Thanks Special thanks to @jayjay for creating the config and contributing to making the script easier to setup. @jayjay is currently working on support for changing fonts and the ability to change button colors.

    I know there are a few 3DBoxes for Arcade and esp for the Capcom play systems, but i wanted to do my own take on these, so went with a MegaDrive/Genesis Sized case. I have included two version one with just a single faced front box, and a dual case showing back and front. I have more projects lined up that i want to complete, so i look forward to getting those out to you guys soon. If by any chance i have missed a game, please do not hesitate to leave me a message and i will try and get you the missing box asap.

    Heya, it's me back at it again with my first ever theme collab for a Launchbox theme. Me and @faeran wanted to create a platform line of themes, with each theme resembling the platform feel and looks. But instead of having multiple themes like Coverbox (Which we will add eventually once we have all the platform pages changed into something unique) we want to make one theme that represents each and every system in it's best way possible. From their authenticated colors to their classic games all proudly showcased so you can show it off to everyone you like. We will keep you all updated of course with screenshots, media and more. And we hope to eventually release this theme for everyone to enjoy. Platform Themes: Default (Used for all the platforms without a theme yet): Atari 2600: Nintendo Super Game Boy: Nintendo Super Game Boy 2: Nintendo Sufami Turbo: Nintendo Color TV-Game: Nintendo Game & Watch: Nintendo Game Boy Nintendo Game Boy Color: Nintendo Game Boy Advance: Nintendo DS: Nintendo 3DS: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES): Nintendo Satellaview: Nintendo Virtual Boy: Nintendo Super Famicom: Nintendo Virtual Console: Nintendo Super System: Nintendo Wii: Nintendo Wii U: Nintendo Switch: Nintendo Famicom: Nintendo Pokemon Mini: Nintendo Gamecube: Nintendo 64: Nintendo 64DD: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES): Nintendo Classics: Microsoft Xbox: Sega 32X: Sega CD: Sega Saturn: Sega Mega Drive: Sega Genesis: Sega Dreamcast: Sega Mark III: Sega Game Gear: Sega Master System: Sega Master System II: Sega Pico: Sega Naomi: Sega Hikaru: Sony Playstation: Sony Playstation 2: Sony Playstation 3: Sony Playstation 4: Windows: Philips CD-i Playlist Collection Themes: 00s Collection: 70s Collection: 80s Collection: 90s Collection: 007 Collection: Addams Family Collection: Alien Collection: Altered Beast Collection: Anime Collection: Arcade Collection: Army Men Collection: Atari Classics: Back to the Future Collection: Barbie Collection (was the most difficult to do i hate pink): Baseball Collection Basketball Collection: Batman Collection: Battletoad Collection: Beat Em Ups: Blues Brothers Collection: BMX Collection: Board and Card Games: Bomberman Collection: Boulderdash Collection: Bowling Collection: Bratz Collection: Bruce Lee Collection: Bubble Bobble Collection: Bubsy Collection: Bugs Bunny Collection: Bust-A-Move Collection: Animal Crossing Collection: Mario Collection: Metroid Collection: Kirby Collection: Pokemon Collection: Grand Theft Auto Collection: Sonic Collection: The Sims Collection: Crash Bandicoot Collection: Elder Scrolls Collection: Yoshi Collection: More will be added every day so keep an eye open and click that follow button!

    Beta 13 is out now guys with lots of fixes to the custom spacing options for LaunchBox.Next, which should make things more straightforward and obvious, as well as look a bit cleaner. Because of the changes, your LaunchBox.Next custom spacing options will be reset when upgrading to this beta. @Zombeaver Boxes should be centered vertically now when "Align Text Vertically" is enabled, and it should no longer mess up the spacing if you don't have any text visible.

    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 a 1080p screen, however, they have also been tested for 720p and 4k. 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!). CoverBox - PSX Welcome to CoverBox - PSX. This theme come with 1 game view that is inspired by the PlayStation 1 game box. This view utilizes your video snaps, game box, game discs, and clear logos. Other pieces of information include Genre, Play Mode, Developer, Publisher, Release Year, ESRB Rating, and Community Star Rating. There are 2 distinct themes in this set, one depicting the NTSC cover, and the other depicting the PAL cover. Each version consists of a version of the theme where the disc spins, and one where the disc doesn't spin. The contents of each zip file include both disc spinning and non-disc spinning versions.

    MAME 0.200 No Nag with Default Artwork Here's a build of MAME based on 0.200 with no nag screens and it supports default artwork. MAME FOLDER mame (root folder) | mame64.exe (0.200 ) | +---artwork | horizont.zip (Default Horizontal Artwork) | vertical.zip (Default Vertical Artwork) | \---ini horizont.ini (allows the fallback artwork) vertical.ini (allows the fallback artwork) NOTE Rename your mame64.exe to mame64.exe.old (this way if you have issues you can just revert back to your Original copy). Unzip the files in your MAME folder. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ What is No Nag This is the screen that says hit "Ok to Continue" when you open a ROM for the first time. This screen has been suppressed. How can I use my own default In game Artwork I have provided two zip files that I use for my default Vertical and Horizontal games. you can search for MAME In game artwork using your favorite search engine. Mr Do is a good starting point for History and downloading some artwork. If you have favorite cabinet that you want to use for your defaults, simply make a copy and rename it to horizont.zip or vertical.zip. Happy Gaming

    I had posted some instructions on this a while back but realized this is probably worth posting into a separate tutorial thread for future reference rather than leaving buried in another random thread. ParaJVE is a Vectrex emulator with built-in bezels and screen overlays, which are really necessary to get the whole Vectrex experience: Setting these up in LB could be a bit of a pain because in order for specific games to be launched via command-line, the appropriate game name had to be sent for each one via -game=[the game title] So I extracted all the names of the game titles that ParaJVE looks for, and created blank files for them so that they can be imported into LB as "roms". They're not actually roms, they're just telling the emulator which game to start. You can find them below: Game IDs.zip These are separated into different categories in the same method that they're separated in the ParaJVE UI. Some of these probably won't be of much interest to most people as there are things like Tech Demos in there. In any case, choose the categories that you want to import, place them somewhere on your computer. First let's setup ParaJVE itself in LB. To start, your emulator entry for it should look like this: Add your Vectrex platform (named "GCE Vectrex" if following the LB GDB format) to the associated platforms tab and check to use as the default emulator if you wish. Now, drag the folders for the Vectrex game IDs into LB and indicate that they're Vectrex games. When you get to the "custom options" part of the import wizard, be sure to select the "use folder names instead of ROM file names for game titles" option, otherwise the game titles will be wrong. Let the import complete and now they can be started and the appropriate game will launch. You'll probably want to change the controls once the emulator starts. You can do this by going to Controls -> Key Mapping and then changing the Joystick #1 and Joystick #2 controls as you see fit. Once this is done, go back to your emulator entry for ParaJVE and change the command-line parameter to the below if you want the games to start in fullscreen with no menu: -fullscreen=TRUE -menu=OFF -game= And that's it! NOTE: Java is required in order for ParaJVE to work.
