  1. Version 1.0

    135 downloads

    A LaunchBox Custom Theme I developed to help me understand the code behind themes. Because of this, most items within the XAML files are commented, which were added in order to help me keep track of what was going on. Sources of inspiration include the Lambda theme and GOG Galaxy. The notable item this theme accomplishes is the tab approach to the Game Details Page. Please feel free to use parts of this theme in your own creations. Installation Extract the Neptune folder into LaunchBox\LBThemes In LaunchBox, open Options, under Visuals > Main Window Theme and select Neptune from the dropdown.

    RetroMags was built during a Theme Workshop live stream. If you are interested in creating themes, subscribe to the Unbroken Software YouTube channel. RetroMags A Big Box theme designed to look like the Retro Magazine's of old. The theme was designed using the COMMUNITY Theme Creator, along with some manual code changes in order to utilize the new wheel CoverFlow features not yet currently in the Theme Creator. This theme relies on 1 System Hardware graphic and 3 platform specific game graphics for each platform/playlist/category. I did not include a graphic for every platform out there. If people would like to help contribute platform specific graphics, PM me, or post in this thread and I'll add them to the main theme in a future update. Graphic locations: System Hardware: LaunchBox\Themes\RetroMags\Media\Console Images Graphic 1: LaunchBox\Themes\RetroMags\Media\Platform Image 1 Graphic 2: LaunchBox\Themes\RetroMags\Media\Platform Image 2 Graphic 3: LaunchBox\Themes\RetroMags\Media\Platform Image 3 Please note: The COMMUNITY Theme Creator Project Files are provided for you to learn. If you would like to publish the theme, it will be missing the Platform Wheel and the 2 Wall View wheels. These would have to be added back manually to the theme. They can be found in the theme files within their respective xaml files.

  3. 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/useless extra bit of text/images that I am currently not interested in.

  4. So we decided to bite the bullet and make this the big 12.0 release. Therefore, this new beta is now called 12.0-beta-1. The big change for this beta is that we've introduced a new dark theme for all of the popup dialogs in LaunchBox, and premium users can now customize all popup dialog colors: Colors can all be customized under Tools > Options > Visuals > Dialog Theme. Lastly, FYI, there are still a few dialogs that have yet to be upgraded from the old Windows Forms approach to WPF, such as Add/Edit Additional Apps, etc. We're currently working on getting these converted over to WPF so that they can take advantage of the new themes.

  5. Version 1.0.0

    1,051 downloads

    This collection consists of over 5000 single cassette, double cassette, plastic clam shell, disks, and big box commodore 64 games. I tried my best to stay true to the original box sizes where I can, but this was an almost impossible task, so I had to compromise with some titles. Many of the games where released and re-released numerous times, so you will find in this collection many titles with 3 or 4 different boxes styles. Where this is the case, I’ve named the games with the developer/publisher added in brackets. I’ve avoided on the most part compilation and educational games, although there may be one or two still within this pack. This pack is still far from complete, so if anyone has any box art (inc spines) that are not part of this pack, please send to me and I’ll add them to any future updates I may release. Enjoy!

    Sega SG-1000 needed some box art love, so I remastered boxes from retail scans. All the officially released games are included, even Terebi Oekaki which was more of an accessory for the SG-1000 than a game. Also, some alternate boxes are available for those that had them. Enjoy! Uploading a 2D box set as well.

  8. Hi Everyone, Beta 4 has now been released with the following: New Feature: LaunchBox's game-specific background image can now be disabled (Found in LaunchBox Options > Visuals > Backgrounds) New Feature: You can now use the Clean Up Media tool for a single platform (Community Poll feature) Improvement: LaunchBox should more accurately determine a ROM's region based on its filename Improvement: EmuMovies downloads are now downloaded last to allow them to continuously download and avoid session timeout errors Fixed: Rare errors while downloading Steam media Fixed: Importing arcade games with the ROM Import Wizard was not always obeying the "Force Use MAME Metadata" option (introduced in 11.9) Fixed: On some systems, starting Big Box into a platforms or filters view was not properly playing background videos on first load Fixed: Rare error when editing the RetroArch emulator in LaunchBox if no cores were missing Fixed: On rare occasions, changing the selected game too quickly in LaunchBox would cause the game details loading to hang Fixed: The prompt upon completion of media downloads was sometimes appearing more than once Fixed: Steam games rated 17+ were causing errors with the import As always, thanks for the help with testing the betas.

  9. 1- Lock/ Unlock with pin menu is the way to go. 2- Hide/ Show can be a check box as an extra option for these locked games. 3- Everyone happy!

  10. Hello everyone, I'm the OP of the "Pin-Locked Games" suggestion: https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/5082/pin-code-option-to-unlock-certain Thank you so much for voting for this suggestion and all the other great suggestions from the other members of this nice and great community. It's really humbling to see my suggestion make it on the 2021 new features list. I'm really happy about this and I sincerely thank everyone to make this happen. As a final request to the awesome developers, please make the mechanism as "Lock" NOT only "hide" or at least an option for "Lock". I mean it will be great if we can see the game tile with everything related to it like the background and video and notes... etc.... but when we click on "Play" (when on BigBox mode) it will ask us for the pin code to unlock this game to be able to play it. And it should do that every time we select "Play" in the same game section. I think this is the best option for many of us. So please make it at least an option instead of hiding only. Many thanks again for everyone and best regards to all.

  12. Version 0.236

    126 downloads

    NOTE: This does NOT interfere with the Leader boards at all. **This removes the nag screen that informs you if a rom doesn't work correctly, or if at all, if you use this no nag, then please do NOT go to the mame support site with issues with games, please only use if you understand that there will be no help from anyone at mamedev as you are using a modified version of mame. mame.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.236 (Note mame no longer carries the 64 in its exe name changed by Devs in 0.229) It's advisable to download the full 0.236 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 ini files from the root of your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install. make sure in the mame.ini file you have the following set.

    This is a collection of 13 N64 box arts released by Nintendo themselves. These are the highest quality these boxes have ever been. These were released in lieu of the N64 online app for the Switch. Source: https://twitter.com/AndreSegers/status/1441266976966397952 Also, there's never been an official western box for Sin & Punishment until this. Thanks Nintendo! Included are the original JFIF files and the ones I converted to JPG format.

  21. Quick update: I've got both LB and BB fixed now. I'm working on cleaning up a few other things before I post the new update but if anyone wants to test a debug build of the update right now, hit me up on Steam. It would actually be helpful to have a few people test it out before I post the update officially just to be sure there isn't any major bugs or anything (since I actually had to change quite a bit of code as well as migrate to a new library for this update).

    I did a similar set of Television Commercial Platform Videos that had a background & borders and was more designed for themes using video snaps on the right side. They turned out to be pretty popular. So I decided to do a generic set without the borders and backgrounds. Some of the screenshots are more blurry than the actual videos. (Keep in mind that television was 480 and over-the-air back then. These things are really hard to find, especially with a decent quality) Some of the videos are the same commercials, some are new These are being showcased in my NEW Fading Elegance v1+ theme Still looking for more commercials, so feel free to share if you have some! This set includes (so far): 3DO Interactive (Multiplayer - you may have to rename depending on your setup) Arcade Atari 2600 Atari 5200 Atari 7800 Atari Jaguar Atari Lynx Atari ST ColecoVision Commodore Amiga Mattel Intellivision Microsoft Xbox 360 Microsoft Xbox NEC TurboGrafx-16 Nintendo 3DS Nintendo 64 Nintendo DS Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo Game Boy Advance Nintendo Game Boy Color Nintendo Game Boy Nintendo GameCube Nintendo Switch Nintendo Wii U Nintendo Wii Pinball ScummVM Sega 32X Sega CD Sega Dreamcast Sega Game Gear Sega Genesis Sega Saturn SNK Neo Geo AES SNK Neo Geo Pocket Color Sony Playstation Sony Playstation 2 Sony Playstation 3 Sony PSP Super Nintendo Entertainment System Windows WonderSwan Color -Enjoy

    I made boxes for this system years ago, but a lot of unlicensed homebrews were left out. Many homebrews are included, as well as all USA retail releases I could think of. I enjoyed doing this collection, I just wish there were better quality source images available for the homebrew titles. but I did the best I could. Templates are included for those interested. Enjoy!

  31. Usually rather discreet about my work in the community, I have just put an end to a Zelda Ultima project which no longer has a simple playlist but the first completely independent big box dedicated to Zelda. Anothers New features for this 1.1 Version: * New "home" and pre Launch view. reorganizations, and redesign of icons. * New quick launch bar "Back to the adventures" *Added The Timeline SAGA!! *Added Fan game (solarus , parallel worlds) with the dedicased thème and icons *Short films , demo playable (ocarina remake projects) in the "hidden chest section" *News clip with a selection to the best tracks in the "hey listen section" *We gain in flexibility and speed !! (because less media) I actually produce a lot of 1 or 2 collections in playlist format every month, but on the whole big box it was a pleasure to be able to quietly display all my media! If I show it to you, it is because I have a project to share it within a few months in the community since I planned to do 5 in this format. Next ? The Resident Evil Saga :

    GenesisMini was built during a Theme Workshop live stream. If you are interested in creating themes, subscribe to the Unbroken Software YouTube channel. GenesisMini This was more of a experiment and POC to see how well a Genesis Mini theme could be ported to the Big Box environment. This is not a fully fledge theme, but only 2 views, a basic platform view and a wall games view. The theme was designed using the COMMUNITY Theme Creator, along with some manual code changes with the wall view file in order to utilize the new wheel CoverFlow features not yet currently in the Theme Creator.

  44. @klepp0906 That's the goal. EmuMovies requires us to hit their API consistently over a period of 5 minutes or it resets your session, since this only talks to EmuMovies when we are ready to start downloading files it should make the API happier and not require us to constantly ask for new URLs. Let us know if it improves things for you or not.

  45. Hello Everyone, Please, Is there a way to change these BigBox menus select colors. I changed every single color value on every single XAML file, but none of these menus color has changed. I want to change these colors to make the theme more cohesive and less jarring (color wise) since I use these menus a lot. Many Thanks in advance for any help and Best Regards to All.
