    Zombeaver, the quality and breadth of the work you are doing with these releases is insane. New games, new features, updated versions, custom notes, new bezels, the list goes on. And now with possible savestates and an improved VICE core around the corner, there is more to come, apparently! Thank you so much!

    I've been doing some testing with the new core, I've run into a couple snags so far, mostly minor stuff. I submitted an issue for three of them, the first of which was fixed within an hour of me submitting it so that's encouraging! I really appreciate rsn8887 and sonninnos' work, and I'm really glad the core is getting some more love. EDIT: Issue 2 resolved and issue 3 turns out is actually a bug in Retroarch itself, not the Vice core. Those guys rock!

This is a work in progress and more will be added over time.

Created some new overlays (bezels) - Black Tiger, Retrograde, and Supremacy - these can be toggled between by going to C64 Dreams > C64 Dreams > Utilities > Overlays and starting the relevant .bat. Project Firestart is the default. Group and version fields added to game details spreadsheet. This is a work in progress and more information will be added over time.

There are options for 1080p (default / complete), 1600x900, 1440p, and 4k. For games that have custom dimension settings (there are 25 of these), the dimensions will need to be adjusted to meet your resolution needs. @jophran has made them for 1600x900, minus the new ones that were added in this set, but none of the others are covered. If anyone who has access to a 1440p or 4k monitor would like to assist with this, please let me know.

    Version 1.6.5


    # 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 : To involve the community in the platform video creation. (new) 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) HD video (1920x1080px) @ 30fps (MP4 H264 AAC) Only available in 16:9, but design compatible with 4:3 crop. 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 soon. (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 doesn't support it. So, I will leave you the choice! 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h264 AAC 4K | 3840x2160 | mp4 h265 AAC (only on EmuMovies FTP) HD | 1920x1080 | mp4 h264 AAC - On this download page = Only 4K - h264 - On Download theme videos tools = both, 4K + HD version - On EmuMovies FTP = The 3 versions! # A PREVIEW OF ALL THIS ? Instagram Youtube # 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. Automatically - in LaunchBox > Tools > Download theme videos tools > Select "Colorful 4K" or "Colorful HD" By batch - On the Emumovies FTP ://Upload Here/_Video Snap Submissions/COLORFUL Platform Video Set/ # SPECIAL THANKS : @Jason Carr for his hard work on LaunchBox/BigBox! To all Patreon guys! A GIANT THANKS to all of you!!! 😍 The whote community for yout support! # SOURCES - COPYRIGHT : Each brand of hardware and software here represented as a tribute. Emumovies for (most) gameplay videos The Vanamo Online Game Museum for (most) photos. If special credit, see .TXT file in the corresponding source archive.

    Mr. RetroLust's Marquee Screen Filler Magic Introduction: This is for those that like to fill the surrounding empty (black) space of their Marquee screens while maintaining the original Marquee's aspect ratio, what these replacement .xaml files do is duplicate the marquee with a blur effect on the background while the original marquee has a drop shadow, a technique often seen on TV when dealing with Vertical Video Syndrome material (a terrible disease btw, but that's another topic) Installation: Go to the theme folder of your choice: Launchbox\Themes\*name of the theme*\Views note: If you use the default Big Box theme first copy and paste the default theme folder and name it anything you like, it's important to do this as the default theme will always overwrite any changes you make in that folder. Backup the following files! In case you want to revert back to these Marquee files: GameMarqueeView.xaml and PlatformMarqueeView.xaml Extract the .xaml files in the zipfile to this folder, start BigBox and see the magic unfold Have fun. (Screenshots taken from a 21:9 marquee monitor) Check out the follow up on this here:

    Never been a big fan of clear logos in the rectangle border...so since I could not locate a set of PSP mini logos without the border,I decided to make them myself. Some were taken from the MAME logo set,some were found on google,but,most were cut out of the existing set,or from a screenshot of the title screen. A few are a bit crude,but,they look good in Big Box,so that was all that mattered to me,as I didn't want to spend too much time on these,with other projects taking higher levels of importance,and it already took me a week to do these. Not much exists for making a minted set of these,unless someone wants to sit and redraw every single one...which I don't. There are 294 logos in this set. Old Version New Version

    Hey guys, I wanted to build an arcade machine for quite some time using Bigbox as the main Menu. But I didn't have the tools to make a good arcade cabinet case. Now I ordered a sitdown diy arcade flatpack (called "AE HYPER AIR32") from Arcade Europe. It finally arrived yesterday and here is what I got: Really great quality, no thin mdf, even on the backside. It came allready assembled (except for the round top and 2 doors that hide the shelves on the lower part of the machine) and also is really heavy. Had to carry it up to the third floor. Glad my janitor helped me, but still I was done for the day after that 🤣 Tomorrow, I will start the painting process which will take quite a while, I just hope I don't mess up 😨

    A game that makes me angry? Any game that makes you work real hard to get through a section for hours and when you fail it makes you start again from the beginning. 😡

    Just make sure there is always a computer running that has the most recent sync and you should be fine. For example, I run syncthing on my NAS which is always on (FreeNAS which runs on freebsd). You can install syncthing on a variety of platforms; even a raspberry pi if you wanted to make a simple low-power server.
