  5. It was time for a new thread since a new version was out. And since the last one got locked due to ridiculousness, here is a new thread for the current version. For those with eXoDOS v5, an update is due out this month. Selecting the eXoDOS game (first in the list), right clicking, and choosing to run the updater will auto reach out and pull all of this in. A changelog is being maintained and will be posted when the update goes live. In the mean time, enjoy.

Blog post for v0.35 on Zomb's Lair Download C64 Dreams version 0.35 Download local magazine module (optional) Download Torrent Download v0.35 Hotfix 2/6/2021 Game Details Spreadsheet Version 0.35 of C64 Dreams is now available! It features 500 new games (for a new total of 2500!) and a ton of improvements and new features. This update has been an absolutely monumental undertaking. This will likely sound ridiculous but I can say in all earnestness and without exaggeration that nearly all of my free time over the past 3 months has been poured into this project (and sporadic

  9. Hey all, just a quick teaser. Development is coming along nicely. We now have a few new views with wheels, Banner Box-style banners, etc., as well as favorites, folder options, and more. I'm hoping to get the new version out within a few weeks.

  11. I'm currently creating/modifying a full(?) set of platform clear logos. By creating I mean literally DRAWING FROM SCRATCH in Adobe Illustrator in vector! One logo can range from taking one hour and go up to FOUR HOURS to perfect! Of course many of the logos have great versions already available and I won't be drawing those from scratch but simply examining thoroughly and touching up those if necessary. I will release all of these in extreme quality as well as my original vector drawing files. I don't want to take full credit for my upcoming collection because a lot of them will be essentially

  12. Hey all, the first 11.5 beta is out now with the following: Improvement: Better theme compatibility for installs that don't support symbolic links (such as on network drives or external drives running the exFAT file system). Not all themes are supported in this scenario, but theme support should be much improved. We still do not recommend running LaunchBox or Big Box off of a network drive or an external drive with the exFAT file system. Fixed: Logging out of Origin was not always working correctly We may end up working on more fixes for a bit before diving

  17. I have been heads down focusing on 1.0.9.0 which will introduce nested UI Elements, for those of you that have knowledge of XAML will understand what that means and hopefully understand what a challenge this is 🙂 but anyway... I am working on the visual side of things now and figured I'd give you a little sneak peek of what to expect.

  18. Beta 8 is out now with the following: New Premium Feature: Big Box theme-specific options are now available, which allow you to change nearly every setting individually for each theme.

Overridden theme-specific settings are saved as BigBoxSettingsOverrides.xml in the theme folders.

  21. CoinOps Redux View File What is it? CoinOps Redux is a port of CoinOps Next to BigBox, co-created with @Klopjero. The theme has been developed using the Community Theme Creator (all the credit to @y2guru) and should display correctly in both 16:9 and 4:3 ratios. As in the case of CoinOps, it relies on 1120x1080 fanart images for game wheel views. Big thanks to BritneysPAIRS and the CoinOps team for their work in CoinOps and for their amazing theme design.

  27. Those of you who might be interested in a new version for Android, please see here: Also, FYI, in the slightly more distant future, this Android version should be able to be ported to native Linux, as well as eventually Windows for use on lower end devices. That's a ways off, but this is our current plan for lower end devices.

  49. ===🥂Announcement🥂=== I started this project on 13 November 2019, can't believe how fast the year passed, I honestly thought I might not be able to get this far as it's quite a lot of work but here we are From the looks of it I'll finish the project somewhere in the spring or summer. When that's done I might be doing requests (if I still have the energy left that is, but I think so) for games you really love that I didn't cover so perhaps it's a good idea to already start keeping notes. Cheers and thank you for all your enthusiasm and support through the year, it really makes

  50. Here we are! Finally!! The end of the BETA for the theme! 🤗 Thank you for your patience! I tried to integrate your main requests and refine the existing view as much as possible. The only point not finalized: the scanline effect. I integrated it, it's in the code, but disabled because I can't have the desired effect. As it is, the scanline covers the entire video area and works well ... except for square or vertical ratio video. Then, The effect overflows the SnapVideo to go over the background ... and it's very ugly! I'm trying to fix this for next release ! You can alread
