    Version 1.0.1


    Nintendo Game & Watch Clear Logo Set 36 Logos which covers all games currently being emulated by MAME out of the 59 releases [will update as more get added to MAME] The logos are from various sources (thank you RexRyan), please leave a comment if you see something that is yours and I will add credit to description or remove. I went through them all and removed any empty space/TM logos/characters etc and made sure they all match the original packaging as close as possible. Enjoy

    Version 1.0.0


    I present a labor-of-love. It is a project that I have been working on for a while. It is part-theme and part-playlist. Basically, it's a historical look through Nintendo's console history with playlists designed to capture the best of every release (in 20, 50, and 100 game lists). Included in the zip file are customized clear logos, XML playlist files, and downloaded Youtube commercials. The Best of Nintendo - Please check out the video and let me know what you think. Notes: *I started by aggregating data into spreadsheets for each console. Based upon review scores, polls, and web lists, I created my own lists of the best, most important, successful, or under-appreciated games for each console. Spreadsheets with sources here. Best of Nintendo Home Consoles Best of Handheld Consoles If you feel these lists are criminally incorrect, please let me know. *I created clear logos for each playlist. I used a variety of sources from the web and the clear logo collection in the Unified theme pack as starting resources. I haven't used Photoshop in quite a while, but it was fun getting back into it. If you have any requests or suggestions regarding the logos, please let me know. *Then I scoured Youtube seeking interesting and funny commercials for each platform. Clearly, I could not find many of them in high quality. For many videos, I had to edit out intros or outros. Apologies to original uploaders for not giving proper credit. If anyone has suggestions or higher quality versions of these commercials, please let me know. *Grabbed general console information from Wikipedia - slight editing. *Used a combination of the excellent Unified theme, Coverbox theme, Famicom theme , and BG Clean theme for the game lists. *Obviously Game & Watch is not a real top 10 - I'm still waiting on Mame to start emulating some of the more popular releases. *Nintendo 3DS and Wii U are limited to top 20 for now. Also waiting for emulation to catch up with these newer platforms. *Big thanks to Colpipes78 for the great set-ups, implementing Rocket Launcher, media, roms, and making my life (and many others) a thousand times easier. I hope some of you find parts of it useful. Next - Sega or Sony?

    Version 1.0.0


    A collection of playlists and clear logos for the top games from a a large number of consoles, computers, and handhelds. Most folders contain a Gold, silver, bronze, and best playlist (which combines the bronze, silver, and gold) Below you will find links to all the spreadsheets for the sources I used to compile the data. REMINDER: These are not in order of “Best” these are in order of mentions based upon aggregating a number of “Best of” lists. In some cases, smaller lists, or higher ranked games were given greater weight to arrive at a more balanced list. I have omitted some systems - either because there weren’t enough quality games released, games are still being released, or I don’t have them in my Launchbox set-up (yet). These took me a long time to compile. I hope they are helpful. Best of lists now include: Handhelds: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FiWrU75w5pkSw7GO036iHdrvtBmEsbVh2Kka4K9p6z0/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Nintendo Gameboy Nintendo Gameboy Advance Nintendo DS Nintendo 3DS Sega Game Gear Sony PSP Atari Lynx Bandai Wonderswan / Color Neo Geo Pocket / Color Virtual Boy Sega Consoles: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ksBmsFaLhv1ngK2xDJAai_ollUfukWqZeltlcXv8prQ/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Sega SG-1000 Sega Master System Sega Genesis / Mega Drive Sega 32X Sega CD Sega Saturn Sega Dreamcast Nintendo Consoles: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1f_xtOy_Ksv9Q_Rp99eoR6y5ku7HesM9o2dC0n_5VNZ0/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Nintendo Entertainment System Super Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo 64 Nintendo Gamecube Nintendo Wii Nintendo Wii U Nintendo Wii Ware Arcade: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1h3qIxywuZhopstrUF75IiC7byknCR9gqC5SzHnR8W2o/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Arcade games!!!

    Version - 3.0


    The CoverBox project is one where my goal is to recreate retro console's boxart as a BigBox Theme. Each theme is designed for 1080p. P.S. I created graphic assets for the star ratings. Please feel free to use them in your theme. Please note: CoverBox is now merged into 1 theme and now has the minimum requirement of running LaunchBox 9.4 or above. Installation Instructions Download the CoverBox.zip file. Open the zip file and place the folder into the LaunchBox\Themes folder Select the CoverBox theme in BigBox CoverBox Images List of Supported Platforms Thanks Most of the themes utilize ListBox Scroll Center for BigBox by @Grila This theme utilizes Styphelus' System Boxes by @Styphelus

    Very impressed with the launchbox android app. Would love to have the following added. Mame Arcade stuff.. Art for systems rather than just the text. Favorites tagging. Play videos of the games. Previously used arc browser for my nvidia shield but this. Initial release is a fantastic start and looking forward to seeing this flourish on Android.

    Yes. When I had an issue I was opening the Android file on my Windows machine, editing and trying to save back on Android. But when I opened a Windows version, edited and then copied to my Android, it was fine.

    Graffiti / Cartoon Style Clear logo's Batch 2 View File Submitter harryoke Submitted 09/22/2019 Category Platform Clear Logos

    @ItchyRobot I just tested a couple tables in BigBox without any exit problems. Are you running VP in fullscreen or windowed? @Casdha Easier? I'm thinking no. Reason being you need to setup PinballX and then setup BigBox to launch PinballX. To me it seems kind of a redundancy and a step backwards from the reason for having LaunchBox/BigBox. There may even already be a Theme similar to your video available for LaunchBox/BigBox. These sorta show my simple setup.

    While using this controller in Switch mode, it does all of the same things that it would do in PC/Xinput mode, and also allows you to use the star and home buttons within Retroarch for other very useful functions. Also, the analog nubs can be used as a mouse which is also quite useful. In Xinput mode, unfortunately I can't use these 2 buttons and they're rendered useless. I gave it another go today and while I can register the key combinations and assign buttons to the corresponding actions with Xinput mode just fine, it doesn't seem to be working for me within the games. I've tried Retroarch, MAME, and a couple of other emulators. On a side note, I don't have any game controller software running in the background

    Version 1.0.4


    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

    Version 1.0.0


    This program will compare your LaunchBox database to Mame. You can see what games have been added, renamed, or removed from Mame since the last version. I created this program because I was having trouble with LaunchBox importing roms after each new version of Mame. I tried using the add new roms button in LaunchBox, and when i checked each game after I noticed a lot of games did not get imported correctly, and I was not sure if all games were added or not. This tool is designed to be used with a full mame set, but I guess it could be used on an incomplete set too. You will need to create an XML list from Mame, and have a catver.ini file. This program works on a combined database. I am not sure if this will work if all your child roms are separated. Your additional applications must be in the default combined name. (ie: "Play Red Hawk (horizontal, Greece) Version...") if you do not have the Version with 3 . it will show missing. Also in a parent game Make sure you have the version of the game in the version field of launchbox. Anything in () is the version. If a game does not have a version that is fine. Everything is case and space sensitive. How to use Mame Check: 1. Make a copy of your LaunchBox database for mame in your Launchbox\Data\Platforms folder WARNING! While testing this i did get duplicate entries in my Launchbox database. I'm not sure how this happened as I don't know how to write to XML yet. I think what happened is I had the arcade.xml file loaded in Notepad++, and after LaunchBox updated the list, notepad interfered with it. PLEASE backup your Arcade xml file first just to be safe. 2. Open command prompt go to your mame folder type mame64.exe -listxml >213.xml 3. go to http://www.progettosnaps.net/catver/ click on download catlist, catver & genre extract catver.ini to your mame folder (NOTE: a new catver.ini file is not always available as soon as a new mame version. You might have to wait a few days for a new one!) 4. launch Mame/Launchbox checker loading the xml files can be done in any order. 5. click browse button for Mamelist XML location choose your xml file from mame folder 6. click browse button for Launchbox xml location choose Arcade.xml or Mame.xml file from your Launchbox\Data\Platforms folder (NOTE: It is the name of the platform you are using) 7.Click browse button for Catver.ini location choose catver.ini file from your mame folder and wait for a few minutes while it builds the mame filter. It can take up to 5 minutes or more! 8. You can hide genres from either launchbox or Mame it is better to hide from mame! Put a check box next to the generas you want to hide 9. Click Search button at the bottom. Program will show not responding, and icon will turn to loading icon while it is building the list. Grab a drink or play some games... this will take a while! It takes about 5 minutes or so on my slowish computer. you can copy the name from the cell by clicking the cell and pressing ctrl + c. then you can paste it into Launchbox game information. In this screen shot I am hiding all of the Whac-AMole games, and Utilities. There are actually more generas that are checked if you scroll up in the mame filter. The green Fields are what the games are labeled as in Mame. The yellow fields are games that are incorrect in LaunchBox. The red fields are games that are missing from launchbox. I list the rom that mame is expecting next to each name as sometimes mame changes the rom names. You can see if your parent or clone is incorrect. Here is a matching Launchbox database compared to what Mame has. Games listed in this salmon color have either been removed from Mame, or do not have the same genera as what Catver.ini have. Clones that have different genera than their parent will be listed here. The games listed in this screen shot will always be listed as they are mature clones of their parents or are test versions of the roms. I am new to programming, and this is my first program. It is not the prettiest program, and needs to be optimized better. But it is functional. Hopefully it helps some of you. To Do: 1. fix auto formating and stretching of the screens. 2. add duplicate removing functionality. 3. add auto backup of platform xml file. I am happy to share my source if anyone wants to improve this, or see what the program is doing.

    The .exe are stored here, C:\Program Files\WindowsApps. However due to there nature they can not be simply dragged and dropped to Launchbox like other .exe's. There is a work around however, if you right click them and choose create shortcut it will say it cant create a shortcut here and do you want to put it on the desktop? So do that, you could just make a folder called Windows Games or something and just drop in all the shortcuts you want to create and drag and drop that folder to Launchbox to import all the games you created shortcuts for.
