    This pack contains a total of 3247 of what I am calling clear device logos. Basically a combination of a clear logo and a device image. These are meant to be used for platform and playlist navigation in your BigBox theme and will be released in a theme I am working on soon. The pack folder structure matches what you would find in a BigBox theme and is the easiest way to include them in your setup. The point of these images are to use them for themes that utilize device images in the coverflow control. A majority of the images in this pack are genre playlist images for each platform which, is definitely overkill for what is actually needed for each platform but for now this will do. Seeing as how I would have to go through each platform and deturmine which genres actually apply to that platform and then remove the images that are not needed. If you need to save space, you will want to only pick out what you need from this pack instead of using the whole thing. Also note that the genre images and platform category images are the same for each platform and are basically were just duplicated and renamed to include the platform name. Hopefully at some point BigBox will have a default folder used for fallback images that you could use for every platform, that would cut down the number of images considerably. Here is the breakdown of what is included: 90 Platform images 2858 Playlist images 299 Platform Category images Note: the genre images are for the most part are black and can be hard to see on a black background, I may tweak them going forward but I only found this marginally annoying so just leaving them for now.

    This theme is based on the default skin used in newer versions of Kodi. It features 5 platform views and 1 game view that displays the boxart and video of the selected game. Included are custom made device logos for over 100 platforms and genre playlists that are used in three of the views. There are two photoshop files that are templates located in the images folder that can be used for anything missing or custom in your set up. The theme requires LaunchBox 9.4 as it uses platform specific settings to try to best fit the boxart for each system. This theme is best suited for vertical boxart but will squish/stretch wider images slightly and cut off unnessecary logos (like the platform name) especially for the SNES and N64 consoles. It is designed and tested at 1080p and 4K resolutions. Platform View 1 - Uses the custom device logos with a banner image and description Platform View 2 - Uses the custom device logos with a video and description Platform View 3 - Uses the custom device logos with a larger video Platform View 4 - Uses the normal clear logos with a banner image and description Platform View 5 - Text list with favorites, recently played, and description Game View - Text list using the games boxart and video (screenshot if no video available) with description Installation: Extract the zip file into the Launchbox\Themes folder. Unblock "ListBoxScrollCenter.dll" located in the Plugins folder if needed. Install the 3 fonts located in the "Fonts" folder While inside BigBox, you may also need to select "Options - Image Cache - Refresh Platform Wheel Images" if the custom device logos are not displaying properly. Optional: To create spacing between the last platform and the first platform (as seen in the video), create a playlist with at least 1 game in it and fill in the Details tab with the following then add it to as many platforms as needed in the Parents tab: Unique Name: Spacer1 Nested Name: - Sort Title: ZZZ Multiple playlists can be created with the Unique Name "Spacer2" "Spacer3" Spacer4" etc... while using the same Nested Name & Sort Title. I've been working on this theme off and on for a year and was finally motivated to finish it after the recent features added to Launchbox. This is the first time I've coded anything besides very basic html a decade ago. I've learned how to do it by starting with one of the CoverBox themes, stripping it down, experimenting, researching how Xaml works, and seeing how the other themes were created. If there are any issues or anyone has any suggestions or requests, I'll try to help out. I'd like to thank the other theme makers, community members, and @Jason Carr for making LaunchBox so awesome to use and hope everyone keeps up the great work. The theme uses ListBox Scroll Center for BigBox by @Grila and the star rating graphics from CoverBox by @faeran . Thank You! You can also use the sound pack and startup theme I made to complete the whole package.

    This is a reboot of my pack of platform banners to keep in line with Nosh On This Twice - Clear Device Logos. The biggest addition is platform categories and playlists for every system. As mentioned in clear device logos, there may be unneeded genre playlist images for some of the platforms, at some point i will remove them but for now it includes everything.

    This is a modern looking theme I've been working for a month or so. It has 2 platform views and 4 game views. One of the game views is very simalair to the Xbox One Interface. There's lots of art included in this theme. All of it was found via Google image search, so I don't believe there should be any legal issues with using it. I've also created and included some custom playlist banners. If anyone wants to create and share any custom art for this theme that would be awesome. I intend to add more views. Feel free to offer suggestions. To install -- just extract the Alyssa folder into your Launchbox/themes folder. Then install the teko-semibold font. Alyssa_-_A_Modern_Theme.mp4

    Happy Christmas or Yule brothers! Arcade 3D Boxes 2.0 Important: Press follow button in the upper right corner to get notified for any future updates to this project, future updates to this page will not be pushed to the "What's New" section. I was inspired by the Mame 3D Boxes by @Robin55 and @Reevesad and the work by @spycat and @MadK9 At first I experimented to convert Robin's work to a darker color as it fits my dark colored setup better, one thing let to another and was helped enormously by @Robin55 in the process of automation and more, if it wasn't for all his help and work this project wouldn't have happened, thanks again so much brother! \m/ The 3D boxes are mostly for the Mame set (could include other emulators as well) but only includes Arcade video games, no pinball, fruit machines and such. Features: Covers based on official flyers, instruction flyers or fan art, customized official artwork and more. I've hunted down previously artwork missing from databases and/or very rare flyers, original resolution of these images can be low some times. Each box has a logo for the game, if it was missing I've hunted it down or extracted it from images (I upload these logos to the database as well) Each box has a logo of the company that either developed or published it (some flyers may have a different publisher from another region, bit confusing at times) Each box is manually color corrected, cleaned and optimized Some games have a second alternative version, made from cabinet side art, marquees or from a different region for example More packs (5 packs total: FGHIJK, LMNOP, QRS, TUVWXYZ) are coming in 2019, missing 3D boxes will be released later through update packs. Please remember if you miss boxes to also check the naming convention of the file and if it is the same as the most recent version in the database. Any entry with "The" in front (Like The Astyanax) will be included in the QRST pack. Hope you like Credits Thanks go out to anyone contributing and making art for the launchbox games database. Thanks for any help, encouragement and advice: @Robin55 @spycat @MadK9 @Reevesad @Jason Carr @Kondorito @zetec-s-joe @Fablog @andyco47 @mikty Special thanks to: @neil9000 and @Retro808 for those logistics \m/

    This is a reboot of my Nosh On This theme with new views, improved performance and a ton of platform category, platform and playlist images. Platform and game background videos are force enabled in the theme settings but you can change that if you like. There is more work I would like to do to the game views and that will be hopefully coming soon. Quick and dirty video of what you can expect below. You can either download the entire package which is currently 2.5gb or the no images zip that just contains the theme and download the clear logo, banner and device images separately from the links below.

    I created this videos for myself simply because I wanted only games that are in my collection to be included in the Platform Theme Videos. However, now that I finished them I thought maybe someone else would like them too! Please don't expect additional videos in the future because these are all the platforms that I have in my Collection and I don't plan to add any more. This video set is also available in 4:3 ratio here Also check out the original Nostalgia Set here by @viking and the Nostalgia additions Set here by @dragon57 // VIDEO // Arcade = 2 videos Handhelds = 6 videos Consoles = 14 videos Computers = 4 videos // INFORMATION // 16:9 format HD resolution: 1920×1080 MP4 format - H264 Codec - AAC audio - 30fps // PREVIEW // You can watch the YouTube playlist for all 26 videos here in 16:9 format.

All files have been created by myself using the various repositories on the Internet for source materials and all have been adapted to suit the 1:1 file ratio and all have had a standard Xbox 360 overlay applied so that they appear uniform in the set. The file format is JPG to keep file size small and hopeful better performance on low spec machines. The file dimensions are all 500x500 1:1 Packs for other consoles will be added shortly.

    Here are 298 hacks for Super Mario Bros. on the Nintendo Entertainment System. I love these, there are some good ones that are a lot of fun! The file Nintendo Entertainment System (Mario Hacks).7z is to be unzipped and placed in your LaunchBox\Images folder. These are all the screen-titles and screen-shots. The file Nintendo Entertainment System (Mario Hacks).png is a clear-logo I made (of course you can make your own if you wish). The file Nintendo Entertainment System (Mario Hacks).xml is to be placed in your LaunchBox\Data\Platforms folder as this has all the game notes. You will just need to use the replace function in Notepad++ to change the directories from G:\Nintendo Entertainment System (Mario Hacks) to whatever your directory will be. There are no clear logos for the games themselves. I just settle with the generic font if using BigBox. As for the games themselves, most hacks come in the form of a patch file like the .ips extension. You name your .nes file and .ips file the same name for each game. Some patches need a specific ROM like (JE) or (World) etc. Once named correctly, place them all in the same folder, then import the .nes file to LB and upon launching, it patches automatically as long as the files are named the same as stated above. If you need some ‘help’ with the actual games (.nes and .ips files) themselves, send me a PM. Also, I’ll always be adding more to this as I obtain more.

    Just a simple startup theme that uses the clear logo and fanart of the launching game with a sleek loading bar and a play count in the bottom right. The shutdown screen is just the fanart slightly darkened with a stylized "Fin..." in the corner. Installation: Extract the zip file into the Launchbox/StartupThemes folder. Under the options menu in Launchbox & Bigbox, select Just Simple as the startup theme. Optional - You can also install "Roboto-Light" inside the font folder of the theme to match the text style in the screenshots. Included is an alternative version that will be used for the Arcade Platform without the loading bar since these games don't get decompressed. You can also copy and rename the "Arcade.xaml" file to any platform name or "Default.xaml" if you don't want the loading bar for other or all systems. Also check out my Platform Fanart images that can be used if there is no specific fanart for the game that is launching (as seen in the last two screenshots above).

    Hello again, first of all I want to thank to Robin55 for sharing his work with me and let me use his Photoshop template to create the boxes I needed. now that I've finished my new Sega Mega Drive Wheel I would like to share with all of you this 3D BOX based on the originals from Robin55. I only share this ones because I didn't needed all of them and I don't have enough time to convert all, sorry. I gave them a little bit more definition and the cardboard ones I converted to 3D Box with the incredible template of Robin55. Hope you like it!!

    PCSX2 Configurator Next for LaunchBox PCSX2 Configuartor Next is a plugin for LaunchBox that allows users to easily configure PCSX2 on a per-game basis. The plugin also allows for pre-optimised configs to be downloaded from right within LaunchBox for a whole host of popular PS2 games, from Zombeaver's excellent PS2 Configuration Project. Installation The plugin is easy to install and simply needs to be downloaded and extracted. The archive contains a folder called "PCSX2 Configurator Next", this should be placed in the root of the "Plugins" in the user's LaunchBox directory. Any previous versions of the plugin should be removed before attempting to install this version. General Usage The plugin is relatively straight forward to use, but has been changed significantly from previous versions. You will first need to have PCSX2 (1.5.0 development build) setup as an emulator in LaunchBox. Then right click on a PS2 Game and choose "PCSX2 Configurator" from near the bottom of the context menu. This will present a menu of options: "Create Config" - Creates a new config for the game in question based on the users current PCSX2 settings, If a config already exists this will overwrite that config with a new one. "Download Config" - This will download one of Zombeaver's Config and set it up to be ready to play for the selected game, this will be greyed out if now config is available, and will change to "Update Config" if a new update is available for the downloaded config. "Remove Config" - This will remove the current config for the selected game, and will be greyed out if there is no current config. "Configure With PCSX2" - This will open PCSX2 with the config for the selected game loaded, allowing you to customise your config for the selected game (Downloaded Config's can also be tweaked). Once a game has a created config this can also be done using LaunchBox's built in "Configure" from the games context menu. Both these options will be greyed out if there is no config for the selected game. There is also a "settings.ini" file created in the plugins folder ("%LaunchBoxDir%/Plugins/PCSX2 Configurator Next"), this can be tweaked manually but most settings don't need to be touched in most cases. Some people may wish to change the "GameConfigsDir" which is where the created configs are stored, this deafults to the users PCSX2 "inis" directory. There is currently no inteface to modify these settings, but that is planned in a future version. Version Info and The Next in The Name This version of the plugin is the successor to the original PCSX2 Configurator plugin, with a completely re-worked codebase from that version, and full compatibility with LaunchBox.Next (which is now the current version of LaunchBox). The main reason "Next" was added to the name is to initially seperate it from that (now discontinued) verison of the plugin. This release is currently in Beta and the "Next" from the name will probably be dropped eventually for a stable release with more features. Credit and Support I have personally put a lot of time and effort into all versions of this plugin, with it essentially being my free-time pet project for the last year and a half. Though I know the plugin would not be what it is today without Zombeaver who really helped me to bring this plugin to the next level, by allow me to integrate his PS2 configurations into it as well as creating artwork and helping me test the plugin. I would also like to say a big thank you to spectral, neil9000, and kmoney for helping me out with testing, and of course Jason Carr for making LaunchBox and implementing some of my requested changes into the plugin engine. I intend to keep working on this plugin, and fix any reported bugs as well as update the plugin with new features. So if you have any problem or feature request's hop over to the plugins thread on the forums and let me know. The project is also open sourced under the MIT license and can be found on my github.
