    Version v2.1


    Note: This thread will not be pushed to the front in the "whats new" section once updated in the future, if you want notifications for future updates be sure to follow this page by using the follow button in the upper right corner. Neon Deluxe Arcade - Big Box Theme Huge thanks goes out to @Hexxxer for his amazing theme (FutureState) framework and controls (HexControls.dll), without his work I couldn't have made this theme. ----------------------------------------------------- INTRO This theme is a sequel to my previous Futurestate Neon Deluxe theme, it looks a lot like the theme but has some features that the prequel had not; like embedded fonts (no need to install fonts, thanks to @Jason Carr) and much more, you just have to see it for yourself. My main goal with this theme is to create a virtual arcade building kinda like 'New Retro Arcade'. Neon Deluxe Arcade is a series of themes and elements, if you like you can download these to accompany the complete theme: Neon Deluxe Arcade - Launchbox Theme Neon Deluxe Arcade - Startup Theme (Street) Neon Deluxe Arcade - Startup Theme (Inside) Mr. RetroLust's Realistic Retroarch Bezels (Same style > Dimmed lit retro gaming) This theme uses a softer version of Marquee screen FX, if you like there is more choice at Realistic Marquee Monitor FX Transparent background Mame PCB's (circuit boards): Over here You can find transparent background arcade cabinets here at Arcade Cabinets Project 2.0 Video of early version: Video of v2.0 with a new view: ----------------------------------------------------- INSTALLATION Download the theme from Big Box's theme manager or download the zip file here and extract the content to Launchbox/Themes/NeonDeluxeArcade/ You might need to unblock the .DLL's in the plugin folder for them to work properly. To make the placeholder work which shows the Cabinets/Advertisement Flyer - Back/Box Back in the screenshots it first 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: TIPS 1. This theme uses images and video pretty heavy, it could run slower on older systems. I recommend doing the following to speed up Big Box greatly: Uncheck all Background Images in launchbox/settings/image priorities Set all transitions to "None" in BigBox settings Use the Clean Up media tool in launchbox/tools/Clean Up Media... (this can really speed up lists with thousands of games and duplicate media) Let Launchbox cache your images 2. This theme is probably only fit for use on a 16:9 aspect ratio. 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. Hope you like and enjoy! 🤘

    # WHAT IS IT ? COLORFUL is a complete and coherent high quality graphic set, around a unique design. Made with love in France. I hope you like it ! 😘 Here are planned development axes: COLORFUL Theme : The main hub, a unique interface for BigBox. COLORFUL Platform Video : Complete 4K video set, with a unique design. COLORFUL Source : (soon) To involve the community in the platform video creation. COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : (soon) COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon) COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon) # HERE IS COLORFUL PLATFORM VIDEO SET: On this page we are talking about COLORFUL Platform Video Set: A complete new series of platform video for our frontend! Colorful is a modern and elegant way to present each platform, with its hardware of the time. With maximum accuracy and future proof. (4K video) # I NEED YOUR HELP : PATREON ? I will make a first batch of 65 systems, according to my personal use. But we are far from covering any game system! If the community doesnt take over the creation, 2 choices: the project stops /or/ I finish it. Problem, creating these videos takes a loooooot of time. And I have to deal with a full-time CGI artist job and 2 young kids. So I opened a Patreon page that could allow me to dedicate days on my work time to continue creating video. I'm not trying to get rich, but like everyone else, I cant spend 1 day/week working for free! I hope you understand. If the project interests you: Here is my Patreon page. # IN DETAIL ? Obviously, Colorful is a direct legacy of my previous video set "Nostalgia". But improved on all aspects: Centred design with colorful background, according to the platform. (theme/logo/box/design) 4K video (3840x2160px) @ 30fps (MP4 H264 AAC) Only available in 16:9, but design compatible with 4:3 All designs are completly rebuilt. More care of details. More TV variety and better accuracy. Arcade cabinet fully made in CGI, by myself. More variety and better accuracy. Added characteristic effect on CRT TV. Added platform boot screen. (if existing) All sources will be available. (Community effort!) # ABOUT CODEC FORMAT ? Initially, I was thinking of working in H265, more modern for 4K. But after talking with Jason, this is problematic on some old configuration and with Windows Media Player, which does not support it. So, I will leave you the choice! There will be 3 formats. But to simplify maintenance, there will only be one available here. (The recommended one) Others will be available for download on EmuMovies FTP. 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h264 AAC recommended 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h265 AAC HD | 1920x1080 | mp4 h264 AAC (for small resolution screen) # A PREVIEW OF ALL THIS ? Instagram Youtube Twitter # A COMMUNITY EFFORT ? Yes, all sources will be available on a dedicated page. (soon) Everyone can create their own videos that will be included here, in this set. Some rules to follow: - Advertise on this thread which platform you want to achieve. - Post the work in progress on the same thread, for exchange/feedback. - Post the final video + sources on the same thread or by MP. To avoid scattering and centralize everything here. - I will moderate the general quality of your proposals for a coherent result. So, I acting like a modertor on this thread. Do you want to participate? Cool !! I post soon a guideline tutorial ! # OK, HOW TO DOWNLOAD ? 3 ways : One by one - right here, with the download button at the top right.

    Version 1.6


    RΞfΔktΦR is a relatively simple text view-based theme showcasing videos and screenshots while keeping things clean. It's designed to work with either 16:9 or 4:3 displays, though you might need to tweak some settings using the configuration guide (out the box it's setup for 16:9). Due to its reliance on certain plugin features, the current version of this theme requires LB version 10+. It works with either WMP or VLC but runs more smoothly and uses less CPU with WMP. Refaktor is also now integrated with WootLauncher for a seamless experience. NOTE: Unblocking the ZIP file will also unblock the DLLs (e.g., Ao.Bigbox.Themer.dll and others) contained therein, giving your computer permission to run these DLLs. This is an issue with all plugins you might download from this forum. It's a Windows security feature. You basically have to vouch for a file before Windows will use it. I liken it to how a MS office document you download from an email runs in Protected Mode until you unblock it for printing, editing, etc. Below is the error you'll see if you don't unblock the file, as well as a screenshot of the solution.

    Version 1.0.0


    I had been meaning to release this for awhile now. These are all LB named to the proper release name. So should be just drop in to your Images/Sony PSP folder. Here is a complete USA/Eu + a few Japan UMD Images. Not all these are done by me, they have been scraped from various places. All missing games were made by me, where possible i tried to use only official game cover art, this includes a lot of European UMD's which seem to missing in most places. Also check out @Xzile for his additions posted earlier. (None of his UMD's have been added to my archive,), So please check out the post if you miss his. Adding the template if you want to make any you are missing. UMD Template.psd

    It just matches images against the games in the .xml files, and if a game is no longer imported the attached media is deleted.

    Great theme. One qustion though. Using Big Box, I have set Fanart images in the Platforms but when the wheel stops at a Platform, the background does not change and keeps showing the Neon deluxe arcade wallpaper. Any hit? Thanx

    It pulls it from the Arcade-Marquee folder and then in absence of an image there follows your Box Front image priorities.

    Seeing as this is version 9.11 , does this mean that if we have a PC Tower we should not attempt to run flight simulators on it. 🤐🙄

    The sky is falling! Y'all, how many times have people freaked out because they were convinced that the "golden age" of LaunchBox development was over? It happened when Music Box Alpha first came out, it happened when .Next was in development, and it happened several times before that for various unmerited reasons. Nothing changed for the worse on any of those occasions, despite various people's concerns. This time it will be no different. So you can "no longer expect any great enhancements" all you want; I guess you'll just continue to be pleasantly surprised. I would appreciate it though if you guys would try not to spread unnecessary panic and fear, and try to be more positive instead.

    It's the type of feature that most people don't think/care about until they need it... and then they really need it; but that also means it isn't likely to get much attention in the polls (which is unfortunate, because I'd love to have it myself).

    Decided to rewrite the Editor in WPF (from winforms) and as you'll see the benefits of doing so are obvious.

    It will load apps that are external to the emulator. I am not familiar with your problem but it sounds like this is a process that is internal to epsxe. If an external solution (like something somebody made to fix some problem in epsxe) exists then you can use "additional apps" in LB to automate loading it before the emulator. The problem we were talking about is that you have to set this up manually, game by game, as things are right now.
