    Vectrex 2D Front Cover Box Art - By Simon Quincey - hitt.man@ntlworld.com So i added all my Vectrex roms (113 at the time) to Launchbox, i let it do its "thing" and the artwork it downloaded was horrendous. Different sizes, wildly different qualities, some real, some custom and a whole load missing. Like 70% missing! Every rom needs an image, they should all be the same size and style too. I know, i'll make my own set using anything i can find online. 113 roms, how long can it take? If theres no artwork online i'll just use a screenshot from emulation. Every search for more images, lead me to more websites, more information and more roms. I joined a very cool Facebook group on 28th April, to learn more and find more artwork and there were plenty of helpful people there. There were also more roms... From the "Vectrex Fans Unite" Facebook group i would like to thank everyone for the encouragement and support. And particular thanks to these guys who provided much needed original artwork to complete this cover set. Graham Toal Chris Malcolm Jacek Selanski David Flemming Tony Holcomb Alan McClelland Manu Parssinen Steven Salter John Blythe If you helped me out and i missed your name here, sorry, but i do thank you. Also, from the Launchbox thread i started and did my daily progress updates to, i would like to thank... Lukeyboy67 Starbuck Dragon57 ...for the ongoing support. I started at 113 roms but ended up with 260! Seemed never ending but i've finally done it. So here in this pack are 260 unified images, all following the same design template, same resolution (1024x800) and (as much as possible) the same quality level. I have done the best i can with the online artwork i could find. I've used original box scans where possible, i've used other peoples custom box artwork at times, i've upscaled some, cleaned others, totally dumped and rebuilt others. I've used various emulators to capture screenshots and built totally new logos for some. Its been a lot of work and after about 6-7 weeks or so, i'm done... for now... Although this set of images was selfishly only going to be for myself to begin with, after sharing what i was doing it seemed there were others who were interested in using these. I was asked if i would share them, so thats what i'm doing. Of course, they are free to use, i don't own any of this. This set should now be uploaded to the Launchbox website/forum as a pack/zip and to my own GoogleDrive too. My GoogleDrive will also hold these as individual files and i'll have an area for new and updated files. The link to my GoogleDrive will be shared to both the Launchbox forum and Facebook group. Updates to this pack, error fixes, new covers, cover requests etc. may only be uploaded to my GoogleDrive. So if you have read all this waffle and you are using these images, please check there for new files. I will take requests for covers, if i've missed a rom and you still have artwork gaps after adding this set, just ask. I will fix any errors you spot too. All i ask is you request by email (top and bottom of this text), and if its for a rom i don't have, you send me that rom. I will update covers too if you have improved artwork, you just need to send me it. Comments, roms, requests, fixes, artwork etc. to... hitt.man@ntlworld.com Have fun.

    AllNightLong is trying to be a clean simple theme with little animation and stuff going around. Designed for 16:9, 16:10 and 4:3 screens. Platform navigation features banner images for 52 different platforms. Includes default playlist image in the themes playlist folder. Supported Views: Platform Wheel 1 Platform Wheel 2 Text Filters View Text Games View Horizontal Wheel 1 Games View Horizontal Wheel 2 Games View Vertical Wheel 2 Games View Vertical Wheel 2 Games View Background color: Change the background image/color. (LaunchBox\Themes\AllNightLong\Media\Custom Assets\). The default background file name is "default-bg". So change the backgound file name to this and it will show up in the theme. There are now 5 alternatives or you can make your own also. The only limiting factor is the text color, which will always be white, so white or very light backgrounds will not work. Credits: Theme was created by @thimolor Theme was created using COMMUNITY Theme Creator by @y2guru Uses Google Fonts: Barlow and Barlow Condenced Designed by Jeremy Tribby. Platform Text Filters View Screenshot uses video made by @viking as a platform background. This theme uses some of the device images from EmulationStation theme Tronkyjared (https://github.com/cowboyjeeper/tronkyjared). Many device images and system logos are taken from Wikipedia. Support: Support will be slow, sorry for that. If you run into issues concerning the custom banner images, please refresh the images first. Also please check your LaunchBox image options for fallbacks. I could not test all the platforms so there could be file naming issues. Special Thanks: @bundangdon @Retro808 @proghodet @Tromzy I received crucial feedback from these fine gamers. Without them, the theme would be less refined.

    Hey all, I have another set here to release. This took me far longer then I had hoped but I am happy with the result. After looking all over the internet there was no complete set for Game Boy Advance carts in a nice matching template... everything was poor quality and skewed images, etc. I took the task of making this set. I have 981 GBA games and this pack includes carts for all but two games that I simply cannot find images for anywhere. This is an NTSC only set. There are 983 files in the download (i think I had a few duplicates as I only made carts for 981 games minus the two missing for a total of 979, leaving 4 "extras" in this pack. If anyone finds those duplicates/extras let me know so I can remove them and re-upload. Also the two games I am missing artwork for are: Pocket Professor: KwikNotes Volume One Crash & Spyro Superpack_ Spyro Orange_ The Cortex Conspiracy + Crash Bandicoot Purple_ Ripto_s Rampage.png If anyone finds images for those two please contact me so I can get them added. Also, since I didn't get to verify my games against an "official" list it is possible I am missing some official NTSC games. If I am please also PM me the with what the game is and potentially a link. Looking online at various sources there are some discrepancies on a few releases and if they were NTSC or not. Anyways, enjoy everybody!

    # WHAT IS COLORFUL? 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 Resources : You want create video? It's the place to be! COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : (soon) COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon) COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon) # WANT TO CREATE VIDEO? YOU ARE IN THE RIGHT PLACE! On this page we are talking about COLORFUL RESOURCES. Have you considered creating a new Platform/Category/Playlist video for Colorful? This is the place to be! Done, by and for the community. You will find below my guideline and quick tutorial. If you are tempted by the adventure, please respect the rules below! Thx !! # READY FOR ADVENTURE? FOLLOW THE GUIDE! Before we start going into the technique, let's set up some basics on how we're going to do it. The idea is not to make me a tyrant, but to keep an overall coherence of design, style and to centralize uploads/downloads on a single page. The basic principles : On this Resources Page, you will find: 1 archive = 1 platform sources. (From me or from you) On the Platform Video Page, you will find: 1 file = 1 video. (From me or from you) Here are the rules to follow: ONLY use this forum thread for ALL that concerns the video creation. Form start to finish. Please, not used the comment section below. Announced on what platform(s) you want to work. (New or rebuild) Post your work in progress! This is very important, to have feedback from community and me. Follow the guideline below. There can be several videos from the same platform. I will add your credits. But keep the same background color please, for theme integration. Don't be susceptible if we make comments. 😉 At the end, send me your video and source files. I will upload them to the corresponding pages, with your credits. Here, I will act as a moderator. 😅 The goal of all these rules is to keep the set consistent, allow the community to take part in creation and centralize everything for ease of use. About software, I used Photoshop and After Effect in their old version (CS6) and without any plugin, to maximize compatibility with your systems. You can use other software of course, but try not to use plugins. # GUIDELINES? I created these guidelines, based on my experience with NOSTALGIA. They have a whole purpose and I ask you to respect them. Here is the principle:You can find these construction lines, as guides, in the Photoshop (.PSD) files, in each Platform archive. The goal is to let the design breathe, while allowing great versatility of use. Whether in full screen, in 4:3 or 1:1, this video set remains usable. I have created a theme around this set, but I hope it will not be the only one! A word for the wise ... # WHAT ARE THE STEPS ? Briefly, the steps I follow for each video. Find photo sources for each element of the montage. I try to put the credits in each archive. Carry out the editing in Photoshop, keeping a layer structure common to each platform. From Photoshop, save each layer group in separate PNG files. Find a Gameplay video (EmuMovies for most) and the boot section (Youtube for most) Go to After Effect, gather everything in 4K and render a "master" video file. (understand heavy one) Use VidCoder to make my different outputs (4K h264 / 4K h265 / HD h264) and size compression. A quick word for the arcade cabinet: It's too hard to find good photo sources. So I made them all in full 3D (CGI). If you have the knowledge, go there! Otherwise, I create my renderings so that they can be edited in Photoshop. 😃 # IN DETAIL, PHOTOSHOP ? I'm not going to do a beginner tutorial for Photoshop. Here's how I sort my slaps. It would be good to respect this nomenclature, always to maintain consistency. And post on this forum thread your work in progress ! Once the editing is finalized, I export these slaps in 4 PNG files, to go under After Effect. (see text in the left column above) Why in PNG and not directly use the PSD? Because I noticed "more file corruption with the PSD. In the context of exchange with the community, the PNG is much more universal for people not using the Adobe suite. # IN DETAIL, AFTER EFFECT ? Here it is more difficult to explain yourself with words or pictures. But here is the basic principle:The Mask Layer will be used for the Gameplay video. And post on this forum thread your work in progress ! I let you open the files to better understand. If the need arises, I will come and fill this part. # IN DETAIL, VIDCODER ? To optimize the size of the videos and multiply the formats, I use the free and open-source VIDCODER. (also on Microsoft Store) It is rather simple, allows batch processing, and as there are finally few "moving" elements in my videos, the optimization is pretty good.I created and tested 3 profiles that you can import and use. Here they are : VidCoder_Viking_Settings.zip # AT THE END, SHARING ! Once finished, send me the files directly: Video in the 3 export formats from VidCoder. Your source archive, trying to keep the same structure as mine. I take care of the conformation of the names, the addition of the credit, and the upload on the right pages. Thank you in advance ! # SPECIAL THANKS : @Jason Carr for his hard work on LaunchBox/BigBox! To all Patreon guys! A GIANT THANKS to all of you!!! 😍 The whote community for yout support! # SOURCES - COPYRIGHT : Each brand of hardware and software here represented as a tribute. Emumovies for (most) gameplay videos The Vanamo Online Game Museum for (most) photos. If special credit, see .TXT file in the corresponding source archive.

    This was supposed to be a simple flat theme, but evolved into a 2 in 1, so you have the regular view which is flat and sleek and also you have available an optional view (per device) that resemble some classic mini consoles (including consoles that do not have mini versions as of yet). Features of this theme: Simple flat version that runs fast and looks great. No flashy animations that may affect perfomance. Optional "Classic Mini" view for many systems. Every Classic Mini view has it's own background music. Improved original design of some "Classic Mini" (Such as PSX and Genesis). "Classic Mini" style views for consoles that do not have an oficial Mini version (such as PS2, WII, etc.). Platform/console selection with video (you need to download the video first from regular launchbox menu). First version (1.0.1) has most of the more known consoles in "Classic Mini" style: NES, GB, GBC, Sega Master System, SNES, Turbografx, Gega Genesis, N64, PSX, Dreamcast, Gamecube, PS2, WII, WiiU, etc. Recommended configuration: Platform selection Regular GameList ViewOptional "Classic Mini" view . Video of the theme in action (no fancy editing for now) Please follow my channel for updates and related content. If you have any questions, please let me know. P.S.: English is not my first language so I apologise for any mistake. P.S.2: Thanks y2guru for your amazing theme editor.

    Ok, this will be the last and final version of this theme. I will continue to support this for as long as humanly possible and will continue to improve or add new features as they become available but I will not be making any more new versions. My goal here is just to simplify my work time and allow this one to become the best overall. I also want to add a thank you right now for all the hard work from @y2guru. Without his Community Theme Creator, none of this would exist. That being said lets get to all the new stuff! I added several new Platform views for the ones I play the most. They are NOT meant to be exact in anyway, just meant to replicate each console enough to feel nostagic. I made logo packs for every single platform I have which is over 80 right now. This version of the theme will only use these custom logos. It is made to be specific to this theme and to match in style. These are avilable on a seperate download page here: Click Here Added a new wall view. Simple but sweet and clean. I cleaned up all animations and simplified some to make it more helpful rather than intrusive (hopefully)! New matching button packs are available. Added a new Banner location and created custom banners for those views. Several have been made already and are avilable on a seperate download page here: Click Here Finally made a new Dark version for each and every part including the startup and pause themes. Also, finally figured out how to get the Category and Playlist views to work properly. (you can find the custom logos for those views on this page) You will need the following files: Game Logo Packs: Click Here Banner Image Packs: Click Here Custom Platform Logo Packs: Found on this page (each file name matches the platform name) I hope everyone enjoys the new logos and likes this setup. It requires more work to get going but is a much better experience overall. This is what I wanted from the very beginning, I just could not justify the work in making new logos for every game in every platform. I have over 40,000 games in my setup and I have made a logo for every single one of them thanks to @y2guru and his recent addition of the custom image creator. What an amazing and fun addon that is! While using the new logo packs you may find that your game list is different or you just want to make some of your own. @faeran has made a video tutorial on how to use the new Custom Image Creator to make your own logos. It is very good. If you want to make your own logo packs for any of the views in my theme, watch his video and then download the file, 'Retro Console Logo Creator.zip'. found on this page. All the files you need to make each one exactly are included, even for the custom platform views and the banners. How to make your own custom logos for this theme: Click Here Once you get an understanding and are setup to go you can follow these instructions to make matching logo sets from your own collections for this theme: So once you open the logo creator file (that you got from here) in the community theme creator, you need to select the platform that you want to make logos for from the left panel at the top (3rd drop down) and then you will notice a long string of dots toward the bottom of the screen from left to right and centered just above the box that offers 2 or 3 options such as 'Theme, Platform and Game'. Use the following for each sub type of logo you want to make: Platform Logos: Use the first dot for these and select 'Theme' from the box below. (Put these in the 'images/Platforms/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Game Logos: Make sure to select the correct platform from the menu(panel) on the left. Then use the second dot and choose 'Theme' from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Custom Platform View (game logos): Use the same instructions above but select the 6th dot and choose 'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 3' folder within this theme) Custom Banners: Use the same instructions above but select the 4th dot and choose'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 2' folder within this theme) Now you will be able to make logos for your exact set of games using all of the assets that are in the ones I made so they will match. You now just have to select the Hamburger Icon form the menu at the top of the screen and then hover over 'Render Custom Images', now select 'All Games for Selected Platform' from the menu that pops out. Once you have completed making your set you will need to go and get that whole folder of logos you just made and move them to the 'Retro Console' theme folder in the 'Custom Images 3' folder with the others. Remember, each platform logo set needs to be in a folder that exactly matches your Platform name as it appears in your LaunchBox setup. How to make your own custom Platform Category and Playlist logos for this theme: (the ones I made are boring but they work and fit with the theme very well) Same as above except for: Make sure to select either 'Platform Categories' or 'Playlists' from the second dropdown on the left panel at the top. And then select the first dot for each at the bottom center portion in the editor. Once selected, click the hamburger menu icon at the top left and select "render Custom Images' and then select the appropriate option. Here is a video clip of all the new custom platform views: Downloads on this page: Retro Console Dark or Light V3 = The main theme files need. Just choose dark or light or both. Retro Console Pause Dark or Light = Just what you think, this is the pause theme for each version. Retro Console Startup Dark or Light = This is the startup and shutdown theme for each version. All controller button packs = These are meant to replace the ones I use with whatever controller you use on your system. Almost every view has these somewhere. Obviously just download the ones you want . To install just unzip to the following location: ?/LaunchBox/Themes/Retro Console (Dark or Light)/media/buttons/. Make sure to overright them. Sound Pack = Just the sounds I use incase you want them. Startup Video = This is the startup video I made for this theme. Enjoy! Platform original boot videos = These are short video clips of the original startup sequence for every platform I could find. They are used in only one view but it is pretty cool and nostalgic. All Platform named logo packs are for the custom platform views only. The ones in the screenshots. To install you must unzip and upload to: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 3\ Platform logos = All platform logos for this theme. (Required) Thes go into the following: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Platforms\Custom Images 1\. If folder does not exist please make one and remember if using the dark version to change that part. Platform Category Logos = These are for the platform category views only. If you use this view then you will need these for sure. Playlist Logos = This is a large pack of playlists logos and includes custom playlists like collections, etc. Also needed if you intend to use the category views in BigBox. Instructions: (all logo packs, etc: are placed within the theme folder, you must install this theme for any of them to work) NOTE: in the examples below I am using the 'Retro Console Light V3' theme as an example. If you are using the 'Retro Console Dark V3' then please replace that part as needed. Platform Logos(on this page) : Please place these inside this folder: ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Platforms\Custom Images 1\ Custom Platform View Logos(on this page) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 3\ Custom Banner Images(found here) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 2\ Game Clear Logos(found here) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 1\ Once each pack is installed you will be able to run this theme the same as it is in the video above. The custom Banner packs are not required, but the rest are.

    Alright I had been working on these for a year now so this first pack is a whooping 1GB (blame my lazyness) and don't worry, other packs will come in the future and be much smaller in scale. I'll update this description later with all the games included but for now there is plenty in here, I'm sure you have some. Of course you'll need @faeran's amazing theme that you can find in the theme manager of Big Box or over here, you'll also find the instruction on how to set these backgrounds for yourself and don't worry, my files are organized to be an easy import Also in this pack, you'll find graphics with no backgrounds and that's because these are my own personnal addons to @Scratcher's already great contributions to this theme which you can find here if you don't already have them IMPORTANT NOTE: A few of my backgrounds use animated graphics as gifs which in the current version of Retrotastic do not show up, Faeran has already mentionned on forums that this will be remedied in a future update so keep in mind that games like Baba is You, South Park: Stick Of Truth and Cuphead will feel empty as a result.

    Here you will find 154 covers for the 3DO in 2 flavours. 1: With Spine (3DO Custom.zip) 2: Without Spine (3DO No Spine.zip) 3: Templates To create New Or Missing Covers (Template.zip) * Covers are .PNG format.* * Covers are the following dimensions - (With Spine 1539x2156) (No Spine 1197x2156)* * You will need Winrar, Winzip or 7-Zip to extract the ".zip" file you download containing the images. * This took me several months of 16 plus hour days to complete. I don't have a clue what I'm doing and was high most of the time. I did this project because I wanted to do something special for my good friend. One of his favourite memories was renting a 3DO from a tiny corner store/video shop and playing Road Rash. Some of my fondest memories come from gaming as well. The images found were sources from all over the net. Many were pre-made covers that were found in various places. Many were from ebay amazon photos on blogs etc... A large bunch are also made from scratch to fill a void. Using skewed box images or multiple box pictures. A bunch of text I tried to recreate and some are my best shot at recreations. Some titles I could not source any good images for. This is NOT an accurate collection by any means. I hope you guys find this useful until someone is able to make a very nice accurate one. Please if you download this take a second to say Hi and comment. Be safe all. djweevil

    Boxart, gameplay, game title, cassette and clear logos for 2787 games. I spent many hours trawling the interwebs putting this pack together, searching for missing boxart etc. I had to exclude 100's of games as there was simply no covers to be found anywhere for them. I couldn't find casette images for all the games, missing logos created by me.

    I decided to do a little updating on my setup and there isn't much I could find for cartridge art for the MVS, so I made some of my own. The only one I did not make is the Aero Fighters 2 one (got it from the LB scraper), but used it as the template for the others. These are all quick and dirty and not the best they could be, but they get the job done. Hopefully this helps others flesh out their art collections. I don't have a huge collection of MVS titles, but the download includes 2D cart fronts for the following: Aero Fighters 2 (since I already had it) Aero Fighters 3 Blazing Star Captain Tomaday Crossed Swords Garou: Mark of the Wolves The King of Fighters 2003 Magician Lord Metal Slug 4 Metal Slug 5 Prehistoric Isle 2 Pulstar Real Bout: Fatal Fury Special Shock Troopers Shock Troopers: 2nd Squad Spinmaster Zed Blade

    NOTE: This does NOT interfere with the Leaderboards at all. mame64.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.221 Its recommended to download the full 0.221 official pack and install it, then just overwrite the exe with the replacement, this covers any changes the mame devs may have made to the support files. After you have done this, make sure you copy the folders artwork, ctrlr, cheat, hlsl, ini, folders and the mame.ini file from your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install. For those of you on old installs make sure in the mame.ini file you have the following set. Skip_gameinfo 1

    Inspiration: When I found out you could play custom platform boot videos in launchbox, my first thought was to make these the console boot videos. However, I ran into some problems that this theme tries to solve. It might not be done in the best way, but it's working really well for me, so I thought I would share. The first problem is that my videos would loop unless I set an emulator specific timeout for the video. This doesn't work well though as the video often partially loops anyway. If there was a way to stop this, I couldn't figure it out. The second problem is that I use retroarch, and as far as I can tell, there was no way to override the timeout parameter on a platform level (not an emulator level). I could do this on the game level, but that's not ideal as I'd have to keep updating games when I'd add them. There were various other oddities that made cutting off this loop quite impractical. My solution was to create minute long videos where the majority of the video is black. This has solved my looping problem. About the theme: This theme will play the boot videos of these platforms (all others will play a default black video): Sony: PS1, PS2, PS3, PSP Nintendo: NES (video from the Famicom), SNES, N64, GC, Wii, WiiU, Switch, GB, GBC, GBA, DS, 3DS Microsoft: Xbox, Xbox 360 If you'd like to add your own, put them in the videos folder with the console name. You'll likely have to do as I did and extend the video though. The majority of the videos play in 1080p at 60fps. Some are lower fps (NES, SNES, N64, Switch, PSP). The SNES video is also 720p, but it's the highest quality version I've found. The goal was not to favor accuracy over graphics, so most of the lower definition boots were created from scratch so they'd look good at a higher definition (by various people on youtube, not me). In the case where a console didn't have a boot (the boot basically went straight to a menu or game), I improvised to make one that I think will be satisfying to most people. The audio has been roughly equalized so no console boot should be too loud or too quiet. Contributing: If anyone would like a system added, but they don't have access to a sufficient video editing program, they can send any clips they find my way. I'd prefer any old boots to be high quality remakes to keep with the theme. Other than that, try to stick to 1080p (preferably 60fps). Most of these remakes don't exist in 4K, but I might make a 4K version of them using waifu2x to attempt an upscale once I update my system with a 4K screen.

    Sharing some Hyperspin style video themes I made for this console. I'm focusing primarily on exclusives and temporary exclusive titles in this download. I uploaded a lot of multi-platform games in a similar thread for PC Games, you can check there for video themes for multi-platform titles that are also on the Switch. Feel free to request a game if you want. How to add them to your LaunchBox and BigBox: Download the zip files. Extract them to LaunchBox's root folder. Content will be extracted to its proper folders. Done! Video snaps will show up in the game details panels. Video themes will appear on BigBox themes' views that use them. Just make sure your game's name matches the video file name. List of Video Themes: Animal Crossing: New Horizons ARMS Astral Chain Captain Toad: Treasure Tracker Donkey Kong Country: Tropical Freeze Fire Emblem - Three Houses The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild The Legend of Zelda: Link's Awakening Luigi's Mansion 3 (2 Video Themes) Pokémon: Let's Go, Eevee! (Normal theme + optional anime's intro theme song version) Pokémon: Let's Go, Pikachu! (Normal theme + optional anime's intro theme song version) Pokémon Shield Pokémon Sword Splatoon 2 Super Mario Odyssey Super Smash Bros. Ultimate Xenoblade Chronicles 2 Yoshi's Crafted World Technical Details: Video themes are 1080p, encoded with HEVC for optimal file size. Video snaps are usually 540p60, some lower resolution, some higher up to 720p60. Encoded using x264 for compatibility. Video themes' audio is 160 kbps aac, video snaps 96-160 kbps aac.

    These are the custom logo packs I made for the Retro Console BigBox Theme. There are logos here for pretty much every console and every game that is playable in Launchbox, as long as I have it I will make it. To install these just download them and unzip to the following folder within the theme folder itself: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 1\ If the folder does not exist then create it exactly as it is here. Within the 'Custom Images 1' folder you need to have a folder named for each platform with game logos inside it. You can find the theme that these were made for here: Click to get the theme While using the new logo packs you may find that your game list is different or you just want to make some of your own. @faeran has made a video tutorial on how to use the new Custom Image Creator to make your own logos. It is very good. If you want to make your own logo packs for any of the views in my theme, watch his video and then download the file, 'Retro Console Logo Creator.zip'. found here. All the files you need to make each one exactly are included, even for the custom platform views and the banners. Video: How to make your own custom logos for this theme: Click Here Once you get an understanding and are setup to go you can follow these instructions to make matching logo sets from your own collections for this theme: So once you open the logo creator file (that you got from here) in the community theme creator, you need to select the platform that you want to make logos for from the left panel at the top (3rd drop down) and then you will notice a long string of dots toward the bottom of the screen from left to right and centered just above the box that offers 2 or 3 options such as 'Theme, Platform and Game'. Use the following for each sub type of logo you want to make: Platform Logos: Use the first dot for these and select 'Theme' from the box below. (Put these in the 'images/Platforms/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Game Logos: Make sure to select the correct platform from the menu(panel) on the left. Then use the second dot and choose 'Theme' from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Custom Platform View (game logos): Use the same instructions above but select the 6th dot and choose 'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 3' folder within this theme) Custom Banners: Use the same instructions above but select the 4th dot and choose'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 2' folder within this theme) Now you will be able to make logos for your exact set of games using all of the assets that are in the ones I made so they will match. You now just have to select the Hamburger Icon form the menu at the top of the screen and then hover over 'Render Custom Images', now select 'All Games for Selected Platform' from the menu that pops out. Once you have completed making your set you will need to go and get that whole folder of logos you just made and move them to the 'Retro Console' theme folder in the 'Custom Images 3' folder with the others. Remember, each platform logo set needs to be in a folder that exactly matches your Platform name as it appears in your LaunchBox setup.

    This theme attempt to be minimal and modern and maximise screen estate. Note: this is a beta release and features may change in future releases. Installation Unzip into LaunchBox\LBThemes directory In LaunchBox go to: Options -> Visuals -> Theme: Lambda beta Windows 7/8 user: Microsoft's “Segoe MDL2 Assets” font ( SegMDL2.ttf ) is required for the buttons and icons to rendered properly. (If you have it it will work but it’s not included here because of licensing reasons.) Settings guide tl;dr: You may have to tweak your Boxes aspect ratio and spacing. The top Details image is only visible when Fanart is available. Button bar can't be hidden because of the licensing info. Font and colour settings have no effect (font is based on system font). Settings used in screenshots are: Options -> Visuals -> Boxes -> Spacing: Aspect Ratio: 0.6 * Horizontal Spacing: 2 Vertical Spacing: 2 Horizontal Padding: 8 Vertical Padding: 2 Text Spacing: 4 Text Lines to Show: 2 *) For horizontal box art you may need to use a higher value. Options -> Visuals -> Boxes: Align Text Vertically : enabled Align Text Horizontally : enabled Show Subline : enabled (for platform info) Other recommended settings: Options -> Legacy -> General -> Game Details: Show Fanart: enabled other options at your own preference Options -> Legacy -> Images -> Background Priorities : Fanart : enabled other options disabled Options -> Visuals -> Backgrounds: Background Blur Amount : 100 Background Fade Amount : 0 (Imo. the theme looks best when blurred background Fanart and Details Fanart are the same image.) Settings that don't have any effect: Button bar can't be hidden because the license has to stay visible. Colours are hard coded. Font (including size and scaling) is based on your Windows system settings. Thanks to Grila for allowing me to use his LBPlex theme code, Retro808, neil9000, C-Beats and Jason Carr for testing and everyone who supported this release on the forum.

    # BETA ? Yes, for now, it's preliminary version. I have a lot of ideas, new view and things to fix in the near future! # WHAT IS IT ? 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) Christian Robertson for Roboto Free Font Set.

    Hey guys! In the last few days I added the 'Recently Played' auto-populating playlist to my set, and I was bummed to realize that there is no media for this category (that I could find), so I went ahead and created two simple videos and a clear logo to go with them. I am nowhere near the great video creators from this forum (I would have loved to make a video with a synced equalizer, and graphics flying all over the place hehe), so be easy on me. Option 1 Disclaimer; the video source clips and song are from Polygon.com by Reverse Enginears featuring P Sus. I edited stuff in and out, changed resolutions, times, blurs, fades, etc. Recently Played.mp4 Option 2 (ALT) Disclaimer; the video source is a fan-video made by Kriskappashox and FreankExpo's Staff. The song used is "Donkey Kong REMIX [Super Bass Boosted]" by San Holo. Recently Played ALT.mp4 Option 3 (ALT 2) Disclaimer; the video source is from YT user 4096 called "Evolution of Game Cartridge". The song used is "Donkey Kong REMIX [Super Bass Boosted]" by San Holo. Recently Played ALT 2.mp4 You can also grab the logo I made that goes along with the videos. The bitten gamepad is based on an idea from designevo. If somebody wants to improve or create a video/logo for this category, please be my guest; the more options the merrier Enjoy!
