  1. I love this theme. I think it maybe the best theme currently on LB, Definitely my new default. As a small contribution, Here are a few more platform category clear logos for some other platforms I had. I just used an old psd that I got from someplace else a while back (not sure where). I think they match the rest pretty good.

  3. Great collection and thanks for sharing. I have been debating adding this to my theme. It could be a great addition to the the new Community Theme Creator feature for platform sounds.

  6. Great set of commercials. I can see these being very useful. Just wanted to inform you that the one for the NES and the SNES are the same commercial.

  7. I saw your YouTube video and followed the link to download it there. I got it through your Google Drive link, I added it to Launchbox, but I haven’t tried it as yet. I will a bit later, spending time with my son lol. I’m loving it soo far though, I had originally intended to use this solely for PC Games, but I’m currently adding storage to my server to do a full build with retro games. This theme is exactly what I wanted.

  10. Trying this out now @faeran. First impressions: Platform tree and game images view are nice and clean, due to the dark grey background. There seems to be a tiny amount of change to the background when a game is selected; does an image load in the background but just very dark or with maximum transparency? I think it would be nice to have this effect a bit more visible. In the game images view, is the box art faded a little? When you hover the mouse cursor over a game it brightens. I'm not keen on having the artwork faded - would rather show it properly. I like the way that the selected platform is clearly highlighted in the platform tree. Would it be posslbe to also highlight any parent platforms/categories for the selected platform? This way the user can quickly see which platform category, platform and playlists is being selected. In terms of the game details pane, I love the tabs. Much better than scrolling through one big list. It would be great to have 3 tabs however - for game description, info and images. Currently the game description and game info are grouped together in the same tab, necessitating the game info to be in a much smaller font and in a different colour text - and still necessitating scrolling in some cases. A separate tab would allow the game info to be displayed properly in all its glory. I note that for MAME, the MAME high scores is in a separate tab, which is nice. I'm not a big fan of the top half of the front box image being displayed in a slightly faded fashion at the top of the game details pane - especially when the game video plays over the top of it. It's a bit distracting, cluttered looking and also likely a duplication of media as most users would probably be browsing by front box art anyway (though 3D boxes probably come a close second). Faded fanart or screenshot might serve better here. The video itself could probably be made a bit bigger. Do you think it would be relatively easy for me (a coding n00b), given that you have commented most items within the XAML files, to make the above adjustments? Edit: perhaps not so easy lol. My rudimentary attempt at creating an extra tab failed. I just copied the below in the hope that it would add an extra tab: <TabItem Header="Info 2"> <ScrollViewer VerticalScrollBarVisibility="{Binding ScrollBarVisibility}"> <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical" HorizontalAlignment="Center"> </TabItem> But on starting Launchbox I get the error " An error occurred while parsing the custom GameDetailsView. The default view is shows instead. Details on the error are below: System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: The 'Stackpanel' start tag on line 223 position 34 does not match the end tag of 'Tabitem'. Line 230, position 21." Something else - in the image tab, thumbnails are shown, which is great. However, some are incorrectly labelled (despite being correctly labelled in Launchbox, according to the game edit window) and some images are missing altogether. See the Bomberman II image tab for NES below: The thumbnails only show 4 images though there are actually 10. It shows the game cartridge under screenshots. Also, it doesn't show any of the box artwork (front, back, 3D), advertisement flyer or anything else. It would be great to have the images grouped here under box art (including cart/disk/etc), screenshots, other (including advertisement flyer, clear logo) and fanart.
