    I use the awesome Bigbox function to display marquees on a secondary monitor. For years I've been collecting high res Mame arcade marquees from all over the internet. Not all marquees are in 4K but many are, I've down scaled the resolution to max 3840 pixels wide and saved all in .jpg format for a good size and quality balance. This could be the largest high res marquee collection out there, not sure. Some game marquees could be missing. 1398 marquees total. Credits I have forgotten where I got all marquees through the years but I know many came from the legendary @Mr. Do collection se

  4. 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.

  7. 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.

    This video was originally aired as the intro to the 2009 MTV Game Awards. I took the best quality source I could find, replaced the music to one that was used in an old hyperspin version of this video, and then heavily edited the video to match the sound effects in the music. I then added topderob's great Big Box startup video to the end. Enjoy!

  13. The Community Theme Creator is an amazing tool. Unfortunately, as of this time, there is no documentation. There are however, several excellent videos by y2guru and Faeran on the subject. I have recently begun saving bookmarks and other tips from the videos to use as a reference if I ever need to remember how to do something in the Theme Creator. The videos can be pretty long so hopefully this will be helpful for anyone looking for specific info. Some of these notes refer to the upcoming 1.0.9.8 version of the Theme Creator and may not work with the current public version. These b

    About: Use this plugin to quickly convert from a Hyperspin collection to a Launchbox playlist. Choose a Hyperspin database XML file and this program will compare the rom names for all games in the Hyperspin XML file to the rom names for all of your installed Launchbox games. Any games with matching rom names will be added to the new Launchbox playlist. Installation: Copy RB_CreatePlaylistFromHyperspinXML.dll to the LaunchBox/Plugins folder. Restart Launchbox. Usage: In Launchbox, select Tools->"Create playlist from Hyperspin XML" from the dropdown system m

  18. Hey @Zombeaver I just wanted to drop in and thank you for all the hard work you've put into making these games playable and bringing some obscure stuff to my attention - I just started using Launchbox a few months ago, I saw some of the artwork you've uploaded, and in trying to find some of your other artwork, I stumbled across your website, which in turn has led me down a lot of rabbit holes. The countless hours you've put in certainly have not gone unappreciated, thank you!

  19. Well, it took me a bit to dig through what is and isn't currently possible, but it does appear that Android 11 still does allow you to pretend to be an older application and use the older storage mechanisms. That appears to be what the other frontends are currently doing. There are still some silly restrictions on where and how you can share files (for example, our previous file extraction routines aren't working on Android 11 at all), but I'm grateful that it looks like there are ways to make things work on Android 11. Some of my testing with the other frontends was faulty, so I apologize for

  21. Good news! @C-Beats saw my previous post and sent me a PM. He said that they would be open to me posting a new issue on the BitBucket page with my desired plugin API changes. Obviously he isn't promising anything but I think it is worth the time/effort to give it a shot. As soon as a I get enough time, I'm going to write up a detailed proposal and submit it. Hopefully the LB devs and I can collaborate to get the needed functionality added to the API. I'm looking forward to seeing how the changes could optimize/streamline the plugin. Hopefully everything works out! I love the pic of your d

    Requires BigBox 11.14 Mega sound pack for BigBox when scrolling through wheels. Instead of a single click you get many iconic game sounds & a few random, suprise sounds as you scroll. The pack is put together & normalized by me. Of course sound cred goes to OG devs. It has about 1/10th of the common sounds included w/ stock Hyperspin (I re-downloaded/normalized only the best.) I have added a ton more sounds sourced from all over the place & normalized them as well. This will give you a unique wheel sound with every move. It will also sound quit

(and that I am quite incapable of developing) Remember that I am a graphic designer, not a coder. I am so damn bad and a very slow developer. Fortunately, our 2 Superman have integrated color management by platform into BigBox !!! If that's not incredible!!!!!

    I have for you a very unique theme. This is a vertical theme for horizontal monitors! I have a virtual pinball cabinet I am working on and because of how the VPin software works it was just easier to set up my machine so that my monitor was in landscape (horizontal) mode, but physically rotated to a vertical position. Unfortunately this mean Big Box was pointing the wrong direction. Rather that use some third party tool to rotate my monitor in Windows settings back and forth I just decided to make a faux vertical theme. I wasn't sure how many people had similar cabinet set ups but though I'd s

  32. Hey all, I am considering the possibility of opening LaunchBox for Android back up for development and release. That said, I've done literally only a half hour of research and already I'm running into the same nasty problems that plagued us the first time around: Having to place ROMs in ridiculously deep and ugly folders in order for them to be able to be launched Security issues launching games (Retroarch basically just crashes if Android doesn't allow the launch) Issues with app switching (you can't load up a new ROM in Retroarch if you don't manually close the previous o

  34. Alright y'all, the first 100 games in the next update are done. Working on the games themselves has probably been the least time consuming part of the process so far haha. I have a long blog post on my site going over some upcoming features and plans, so check that out for more info. You can find it here. The TLDR version is that I'm incorporating per-game Zzap!64 reviews i.e. you right-click on a game and then are taken directly to the review for that game, either in the web or local version depending on which shortcut you start. I'm also working on a (somewhat stripped down) version for RG35

  39. Since we can only comment on what is on the list and not suggest better options. I would like to say that if the "Suggested games/reccomended games" feature is implemented, I will stop using launchbox if it cannot be turned off. There is nothing I hate more than having shit "suggested" to me, I can find my own groceries/games/magazines/movies/music/books whatever, I don't need to be suggested/shown ads/be told what to watch/play/do next. Sorry if I sound angry, but as someone suffering from concentration problems I have a natural hatred for every pop-up/blinking avatar/slider/usel

  44. I'm definitely keeping a close eye on this, and I might buy myself one if it turns out that I truly can install Windows on it and do whatever I want with it. As per running it natively, it's just a flavor of Linux, so it's gonna run into the same issues we've run into previously with Linux. It works, but not nearly as well as on Windows, and developing a native version is kind of a joke (it would take years). That said, also, I'm back to developing on Android, and though we don't plan to ever put it on the Play Store, you can expect a new version of the Android app to be out in a month or
