  1. Hey guys, there is a way to make the video section adjust for every resolution the preview has. I have seen the tweak in another LB theme here in the forums. Give me some time and let me dig through. I'll keep you posted.

  3. Awesome @Dan Patrick. I would really love to do more of those theme streams, once I get some time. And I can't wait to see your themes so we can play around with them. Also, are you going to post your clear logo pack?

  4. Dude! This looks insane faeran! Excellent job! Proof of concept undersells this theme. It's a full theme in its own right and better looking than many previous themes on this forum. I'm so glad these new wall views are here! Thanks for your work on this! Also, on a personal note, Thanks for those theme streams you did a while back. I got into this whole theme developer scene because I stumbled upon the ArtBook one. I haven't released any theme yet (lol) but those peaked my interest and taught me a lot. Currently I have been slaving over these new platform logos for months (gasp!) b

  5. Whoops didn't intend to start any drama. Anyway, for clarification, the wall part is based on the default Pegasus theme which isn't made by me, but the other part is based on the original gameOS which is also a theme for Pegasus. The game view has nothing to do with either though.

  6. Well this thread has become an embarrassment. Seems @Pixelpiper has been out to throw us under the bus lately and @Lordmonkus can't correct something without spewing hate himself. Y'all just straight up need to grow up. You act like hateful little children, and I'm done with it. @PlayingKarrde I wasn't aware how similar this theme was to yours, but I appreciate the design and your positive outlook here. We'll update this post to clarify where the original design came from.

  7. Wow !! what a difference, now 4:3 and 16:9 videos show perfectly. Thanks for changing this so quickly, much appreciated. Check out the video attached to see what the new changes look like when videos are enabled in Launchbox. new video change.mp4

  9. Yep adding the background transparency did the trick thanks to @faeran! I'll add the theme in just a few minutes.

  10. I am on the right Launchbox comments now regarding your theme Regarding the 16:9 videos with black bars, I think it has been suggested, but if there was no box for the video at all and it was just transparent, then both 16:9 and 4:3 videos would show without black borders. Is this possible ? Thanks again for your theme.

  11. One way to do it is to just add Background="Transparent" into the VideoControl.

  12. Updated: v2.0. Fixed (hopefully) several misc. error issues. New feature: Actually adds the new Playlist to LaunchBox right away. (Before, it wouldn't write the playlist.xml file until exiting LaunchBox.)

  13. Found it. We discussed it in the Lambda LB theme (https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/2417-lambda-beta/?tab=comments). You need to set the video engine to Windows Media Player (in LB, not in BB, as they are two different settings), and then in the xaml file you need to remove the Height property of your video element and it will dynamically resize the video to fit in. So for example: Original line in the Lambda file: <controls:VideoControl x:Name="VideoControl" Background="{StaticResource LD_VideoBackgroundBrush}" Visibility="{Binding VideoVisibility}" Margin="0,-10,0

  14. Oh sorry about that No problem, I thought I would ask just in case there was a both aspects option somewhere. Thanks for the reply. ps, works perfectly fine in Bigbox, just wanted to see if Launchbox option could be changed.

  15. Oh this is the launchbox theme (this thread is for the big box theme lol ) I see what you mean, I also have black bars in 16:9, seems the video controller keeps a 4:3 aspect ratio, I don't see any settings/parameters I can change.

  16. Thanks, can you explain in better detail what you mean? Thanks man I don't know if there is an easy parameter you could set to do this, if not then I would have to create a custom theme and I don't have the time to do that sorry. I do honestly think it wouldn't look good, not a fan of stretched video myself.

  17. Awesome theme, is there any way to show 16:9 videos in Launchbox so that it stretches to fit the box ? All my videos show with big black borders currently. Thanks again for this theme

  20. The Theme is quite old at this point, probably one of the first few created for BigBox. I would love to re-examine the theme again and incorporate some of the new wall views I've seen in the new betas. If I don't maybe someone from the community would be willing to develop this theme further. It never used to be an issue but I am not sure if anything has changed in the past few years to break it.

  24. Thanks for all your hard work with this set. Just an observation, but if you remove more of the transparent background on the boxart, the boxes show much larger in Launchbox

  29. @zugswang I'm not quite sure what you mean by "romset version" unless it's a MAME software list one. I just did them as boxes for BBC Micro games as such.

  32. You just described what the NavigationRows (or NavigationColumns) property does. In the example you gave you set the property to 2 (so it doesn't move if in the first or last 2 rows) and then the rest of the rows will center from there on out.

  34. It looks difficult, but I might give it a try and find some tutorials on it later on today, thanks for replying this fast, appreciate it and sorry for bothering you this you're probably busy as it is and yeah, I know that I can download them off launchbox but sometimes it downloads JP version covers and when it's the correct versions they aren't as good as yours anyway, that is all I need so thank you!

  35. yeah, I'm leaning towards an issue with the theme and Windows 7. I think you need NET Core installed. Maybe we can take this into PMs and do some troubleshooting. Shouldn't be too hard. Set the width/height to your banners, and adjust the spacing until it works for you. Here's the piece of the code, I've highlighted the parts you should play around with.

  38. Yep, very sorry about that and I apologize for the very late response. Ever since Launchbox/BigBox changed the theme system with recent updates, this theme no longer works properly. I'm currently rebuilding this from the ground up and will upload a working version in the coming weeks.

  40. Is that possible? Yes. Here's a couple versions you can use to overwrite the default: Video: TextFiltersView.xaml Platform Background Image: TextFiltersView.xaml I didn't have time to test them, so you would have to tell me if any issues crop up.

  43. Hey @viking I am attempting to make a platform video for ScummVM but am not particularly skilled, I wondered if you still had your assets from the Nostalgia platform video, that I could add a green background to just to get something out there for the platform 😃

  46. I actually have a rewrite in development, written from scratch in 8086 assembly. I have it working even on the original IBM 5150 PC. Development is slow-going though and I'm only doing it in my free time, so it'll be a while yet.

  47. Hello I made modifications to the theme. I hope you don't mind. If anyone is interested, I have attached the files below. Background.png and Mainborder.png go inside the Themes>Unified refried>images>theme>mainmenu folder. Keep in mind, I am using the platform view. Also, I had to edit the "Platformwheel3filtersview.xaml" file in the Themes>Unified refried>views folder and change the margin from "30,-265,30,0" to "30,-170,30,0" for the horizontal scrolling notes to be aligned properly on my TV; yours might be different.
