    Version 1.0.0


    Hi Folks, Thanks, to this video from Planet Geekdom - and special thanks to Retrohumanoid (I'm using his backgrounds - that I slightly modified - and his signature style - of course). I needed these (and a bunch more) and I hope they are of some use to others. If there are any special requests or changes - let me know. Additionally, if Retrohumanoid - has an issue with me doing these - I'll find a way to modify them (new backgrounds I think). Hope people like them. I would definitely appreciate constructive criticism - I've only been working on them for a few days. More to come... Edit - I took down an earlier version I made for Rail Shooters - it had problems.

    Version 1.0


    # WHAT IS COLORFUL MEDIA SET ? 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 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, 4K assets) Totally responsive. No resolution deformation on text size or placement. Because of the white/black background, some ClearLogo comes with the theme. 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 full white/black ClearLogo. They will be invisible on Light/Dark views! 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 - Light" or "COLORFUL - Dark". # SPECIAL THANKS ! @Jason Carr for his hard work on LaunchBox/BigBox! Thx man! To all Patreon guys! A GIANT THANKS to all of you!!! 😍 The whote community for yout support! # CREDITS ! @Jason Carr for LaunchBox/BigBox. @Grila for Grila's Custom BigBox Controls. (Gamepad icon & battery level) @eatkinola for Ao.Bigbox.Themer. (Awazing work! Thx again) @RedSnake for Games.Genre Converter. Christian Robertson for Roboto Free Font Set. Impallari for Raleway Free Font Set. # BY FILE, EVERY CUSTOM VIEW SUMMARY (Here in LIGHT. Same principle/animation for DARK) PlatformWheel1FiltersView.xaml PlatformWheel2FiltersView.xaml WheelGamesView.xaml : Wheel2GamesView.xaml : TextGamesView :

    Version 1.3


    New Version 1.3 Added a visual playtime setter/editor New Version 1.2 Fixed another string error that would sometimes cause the playtime to not record. Thanks @TheNewClassics. Everything should work now but please don't hesitate to let me know if any other problems arise. New Version 1.1 Please update to the new version. I caught a string error that would prevent any playtime from going over 23 hours. The new version will keep all your game's previous playtime intact. Also, you can now reset a game's playtime in LB from the selected games right click menu (@Krakerman). Drop the .dll in your LaunchBox\Plugins directory and start tracking how long you play your games. The playtime is recorded as a custom field so it is visible in LaunchBox on the game details bar and in BigBox in the game details. See the screenshots for reference. Known Issues: Per the plugin API (http://pluginapi.launchbox-app.com/html/a40a286d-83c6-e179-940c-7e4166d567fe.htm) this may not function correctly with all platforms (ie. Steam) but I have tested it with RetroArch, Dolphin, and PCSX2 without problems.

    After Burner 1 & 2 arcade mame bezel, note that animated lock-on lamps only work for After Burner II, artwork will be automatically used for both games so you only need 1 artwork file. I hardly needed to change anything from the Mr. Do source so many credits to them, that goes for many artwork. aburner2.zip

    https://github.com/G-rila/PlaytimeTracker/blob/master/PlaytimeTracker/PlaytimeTracker.cs There are a few other plugins in my repositories as well that you can look through. After a quick look, it appears your problem is you are getting all your values instead of setting them.

    I've had some luck by filtering the youtube search results for gameplay down to 2 minutes and under setting and then refreshing the search. When it's that short, usually people are doing legit gameplay real quick. Some trailer creators are getting better at jumping into it quicker and showing more gameplay.

    Arcade View File Massive thanks goes to @y2guru for the COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox. Also thanks to @Grila for some of the code snippets I've used. _____________________________ INTRODUCTION I know there's been arcade machine based themes before, The reason I wanted to make this one was firstly to try out some of the new features that were added to the theme editor, and secondly I've always wanted to see the side of the cabinet with the artwork. There is a known issue with the theme and for that reason it's best used at 16:9 aspect ratio. _____________________________ INSTALLATION Download the zip file and unblock it (right click the zip file, goto "Properties" then at the bottom put a tick in the "Unblock" box, hit ok when done) then extract the folder to --\Launchbox\Themes\ Submitter Rincewind Submitted 11/15/2019 Category Big Box Custom Themes
