    # 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.

    # BETA ? Yes, for now, it's preliminary version. I have a lot of ideas, new view and things to fix in the near future! # 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 THEME FOR BIGBOX: On this page we are talking about COLORFUL Theme for BigBox: Design for work with my platform video set, COLORFUL THEME is thought to be used on the big screen (TV) in gaming console mode. Modern, elegant and animated are the key words of this interface. # I NEED YOUR HELP : PATREON ? Same problem as with my video set ! Creating videos & theme 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 ? The main features : 16:9 only. (Works on other ratio, but with black bands) Full 4K asset. (Any resolution must work, up to 4K) Totally responsive. No resolution deformation on text size or placement. Because of the white background, some ClearLogo comes with the theme. (because white on white ... we see nothing) Gamepad connection indicator & battery level. # RECOMMENDATION ? Any design choice gives limitations. Here are some recommendations for this theme : LaunchBox/BigBox v.10.0 (and up) VLC highly recommended. Design for work with COLORFUL platform video set. (but you can use any video you what) Beware of all white ClearLogo. They will be invisible! I didnt test this theme on a lowend configuration. There may be slowdown. (Curious to have your feedback on this subject!) # COOL, HOW TO DOWNLOAD ? 2 ways : In Windows : Right here, with the download button. Extract the "Colorful" folder and place it in your "LaunchBox/Themes" directory. (dont rename it!) In BigBox : Option > Theme manager > Found "COLORFUL". # SPECIAL THANKS ! @Jason Carr for his hard work on LaunchBox/BigBox! Thx man! John G. for his support via Patreon! Thank you Gentleman!!!

    Hey all, the first 10.2 beta is out now with the #3 most-voted item from the last poll: backup and restore options for data and settings. Here's the change log: New Feature: New options for "Create Data Backup" and "Restore Data Backup" are available under the Tools menu in LaunchBox. These options will backup and restore your LaunchBox and Big Box data, sans for game and media files. Improvement: Automatic data backups now use the new data backup engine, which should make things significantly easier in disaster scenarios, as it's now one file per backup instead of a bunch of random XML files I went ahead and revamped the automatic data backups system as well, since it was confusing for a lot of users due to all the XML files being separate. Automatic data backups now happen on both startup and shutdown of LaunchBox and Big Box, if enabled in the LaunchBox options (should be enabled by default). The new backup system simply creates a 7-zip backup file of the LaunchBox\Data folder, which handles everything sans for game and media files. It should be really convenient now to make a backup and then experiment however you like, with the ability to go back easily if needed. Next up on the list is the #1 feature from the poll: Xbox controller and PS4 controller home button support.

    Big Fade View File Big Fade draws inspiration from @Grila BigForce BigBox theme. Pause theme shows a fanart background that fades away at the bottom to allow clear view of scrolling game notes and a game play image. Pause Menu is contained in a gradient transparent list box. Theme was tested on a 4:3 screen images provided to show how it looks on a 4:3. Image Priorities: Recommend in your Launchbox Image Priorities for Background moving clear logos further down the list of not using at all. This theme will resize and crop clear logos since the theme was designed for fanart primarily. Installation (Requires Launchbox 9.8 or higher) Available directly in the BigBox Pause theme manager. or Download from the forum and: 1. Download zip file. (You may need to right click the zip file and choose "unblock" 2. Extract zip in your \Launchbox\PauseThemes folder (fonts do not need to be installed) Big Fade Start can be located here. It is a startup theme to compliment the Big Fade pause menu. Big_Fade_Demo-01.mp4 Submitter Retro808 Submitted 08/30/2019 Category Pause Themes

    Is there a way to set it up that when I select a title, say Cannon Fodder, that LaunchBox can indicate that the same title exists in multiple platforms? Sometimes it would be wrong of course going by just name (Shadowrun is very different on different platforms), but anything that indicated the same title existed in multiple places would be nice.

    Did you download the COLORFUL video set ? In LaunchBox, go to Option/Tools/ Platform Video Download Tool, and set COLORFUL 4K, and clic Download.

    Easy to do just replace "SelectedGame.Rating" with "SelectedGame.StarRating" in line 131 of the Default.xaml. Also update line 125 to read "Star Rating:" if you want. Or just drop this Default.xaml in the theme folder. This one has those lines changed if you don't want to mess with it.

    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 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:

    This is a vertical, 16:9 bezel I made for Taito Type X (mainly for Giga Wing Generations). I've attached the JPG (needed for GWG; filename must stay as is too. The orientation is also necessary for GWG), as well as a PNG version.
