  1. Update. I went a little nuts with the N64 startup :P. So far I have startups for all CD based games (PS1, PS2, PS3, DC, GC, Xbox, etc.), top loading systems (so far just N64 but will be SNES, Genesis, and more once I find decent front images of the consoles), and a custom jobby for PSP (as seen in the vid below). Still no idea how to get the little guys back in their boxes on game shutdown due to trigger issue. Hopefully someone can help. 2020-05-31 14-29-04.mp4

  2. Honestly @viking I mentioned it in your platform video thread, but truly you are an amazing asset to this community. Making this public is such an incredible gift. Thankyou! We will treat it with the respect it deserves!

  3. I'm thinking of creating a video that would showcase how the new code works in this update. It's actually a lot more than just wall view changes.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. Thanks! Sorry, but I will not add those in there But don't worry, I will publish the Theme Creator Tool Files, so everyone can make the changes they want. I just need to clean the files first, so it's easier to make changes.

  9. I understand running a full time vertical screen is a pretty niche endeavor. I appreciate the ability to use Bigbox along with the theme creator to make it work for me. Keep up the good work guys!

  10. Updated now with a version that works it wasn't really that much of a change tbh (actually didn't need to re-target anything). Credit to @JoeViking245 for helping me find a fix quickly. For anyone confused about the in-development version, it can be downloaded under Artifacts on the linked appveyor page (and that will be updated with new builds, whenever I add new stuff). It is still in development so liable to change, hence a tutorial video may not be a good idea at this point. The basic idea of what's going on is that the program manages PCSX2 versions for you, so you don't ever have to wor

  11. I've decided to hold off until I have enough for one final big update. I have around 400 more completed, and I would expect it'll take me another 3 or 4 weeks worth of work before I'm ready to release them all.

  12. give me about half an hour i'll upload videos themes, clear logo's backgrounds they whole set up for this system, and yes GRID is f 'ing brilliant, going through all the Teknoparrot stuff, spoke with Trymado on YouTube and he says yes I have permission to use his hyperspin themes just converting them one system at a time 😁😁

  13. Thanks @Bullfrog for your feedback. Much appreciated. Glad you are enjoying the updated theme. At the moment, the version of the theme on both the forum and the theme manager are the same. However, the theme manager will always take priority. So if you download a theme from the forum, the manager will always flag you to update it in the theme manager, even if it is the same copy (or older copy). And delaying the front box is something that can be considered. I know a lot of people have their own opinions on that subject. What's good is that I also released the project files, as part

  18. 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?
    2 points
  19. 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.

  20. I,m not positive, but i would assume the creator wasnt used in this case. The features being used here are new and are still in the betas only, im not sure if the community creator has caught up to that as of yet.

  21. @exodus_cl Hi, I really like your theme, and however, I made some other platform with your theme as well Is it ok if I could get a community version of this theme please? I would like to add more platform based on that. Here is some of my work 1) Nintendo Famicom : ( cause some of japanese version of game's boxart does not fit in NES Mini , so I make one for them)2) Nintendo Gameboy Advance : 3) Nintendo DS:4) Nintendo Virtual Boy: 5) Sega Saturn:

  22. Were you looking for logos like this? I'm that mad idiot you were referring too!
    2 points
  23. I sort of solved it. First I did a fresh install of the dirtyOld theme, because why not. Then I copied the clear logos to the dirtyOld\Images\Platform Categories\Banner folder and in the options enabled "Show Platform Banner Image". Then Refresh images. Now they show up. @bundangdon Thank you for your time!

  24. No problem, its a pleasure. I started with your code and not knowing anything and ended up changing quite a bit so I've kept a similar name as homage to the original. I only posted here on suggestion, but I actaully still feel it should be tested and improved (by me or others), thats why I originally posted it in the "3rd party applications and plugind (Developement and Beta Testing)" section. I've posted the source there as well. see below: but yeah, i'll post the source here too to get more eyes on it maybe.

  28. I'm coming out, What a job bravo dude! Similar I had some mini slowdowns (very light) but I think it must come from the respective configurations of each, must be said that there is a media package to tell the truth more than my customs lol congrat's again it's the version 1.1 you have time to improve it;) in all here in France in full confinement you will make people happy, I pass the links to my closed group friends;)

  31. Thank you Jason and y2guru. I looked into changing the font scaling myself by hand, but I was a little lost when I looked into it. That's why I love the Theme Creator so much. I do appreciate everything you guys do. Sorry if my comment sounded demanding or accusatory. In defending my position it may have sounded that way, but it wasn't my intent.

  32. 1.7 - For 'Neon Deluxe Arcade - Alt Views' version - New vertical view 2 added (see screenshot below) with a static wheel just like the last new view. - Added black light/purple/blue neon glow around logo's in wheel for vertical view 1, as it was missing. Black logo's are better readable with glow and it just looks cool. - Added custom xamls like stylized options view and colored pop up like the 'about' page - Shout out to @y2guru for creating The Community Theme Creator as it so awesome and easily natural to work with it, thanks to him all of this is possible, thanks so m

  33. All of the Options pages and screens are indeed themeable in recent versions of Big Box, so there shouldn't be anything holding theme developers back, from that perspective. Changing font sizes is very easy to do, even by hand. I understand though if the Community Theme Creator doesn't support this yet; @y2guru's been busting his butt on it to meet the demands of the community (and they are very demanding lol).

  37. Ah okay, makes sense now, thanks for that. Dot Net Core is a much nicer solution over Dot Net Framework anyway. I'll see if I can easily re-target this legacy version of the plugin for dot net core. Also means I'll be able to build the new plugin based on Dot Net Core too, which is a plus.

  38. I don't know what the problem is with Launchbox and why the new update suddenly breaks it. It might be an issue to take up with @Jason Carr rather than myself as it did work perfectly fine in older versions and doesn't really do anything none standard that a plugin wouldn't be expected to. The new version is in development although I have kind of put that on hold for now, and not sure when I'll get back around to finishing it. The current version of the new app can be downloaded from here (also linked on my github, above). It is not quite complete yet It, but works reasonably well for general

  41. Awesome theme, using for NES for sure. Will be interested to see people edit it to include other consoles being visible. What would also be cool is to have a zoomed in image of the TV as a Retro Arch bezel, so it feels like you never leave BigBox.

  43. 41 is approximately the number of original game releases which are now all freeware (officially made freeware by the current copyright owners). The rest are made up of scene demos, homebrew and hacks of those free games. There is a ton of great stuff made by homebrewers. Google "Vectrex Tosec" and you'll find links to rom sets on Archive.org that are bigger than Mames, but does have junk in (bad dumps, clone dumps etc). Better still, search for "Vectrex DrSnuggles" for a very large rom collection, all downloadable via this guys online java emulator github page. This DrSnuggles set is

  46. Hi faeran, I'm loving the new Retrotastic, it's much more optimized compared to the previous versions. You really did a great job! I'd like just to give some feedback: In the theme manager inside Bigbox, this version is still not recognized, so it'll flag a "fake" update alert. In this version I can use the theme even in a 21:9 resolution and custom scaling on Windows and everything will work flawless regardless. This is awesome! For the previous version I would need to constantly lower my resolution to Full HD and 100% scale factor before opening BB, or the theme would not work

  47. Just wondering if there's any new platform releases on the horizon or dare I say, source? Would love to expand upon the amazing work created to date. Appreciate it's been a crazy world so just curious. Hope everyone is safe and well out there. *EDIT: And just as I say it he releases source and updates. Honestly, you are a gift to the community @viking and a hero to me!

  49. I modified the file so that it would insert the XML for the video paths/names. Seems to work, tested it on Atari 7800. I am sure there is a more eloquent way to do it, but like I said it works. If anyone is interested I attached it below. launchbox_retropie_export.py
