    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.

    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

  7. I'm going to take a stab at making a re-refried unified theme. It's one of my more favorite themes, but there's still certain elements I really want to see improvement on. I will be re-using the existing theme video and graphic assets, just updating layouts as I want. There will be nothing fancy about this theme either. It will probably look 90% like refried too. I just want to update some of the views with a better layout of game information and play styles. Rob

  8. This isn't going to be for everyone. Attached is a collection of box - front images I'm using for my Visual Pinball set. These are backglass images collected from various sources, a number of them touched up to look better. I have resized all images to a 1280x1024 format. It may be sacrilege for some but I find it appealing and most backglasses don't suffer from over-stretching in my opinion. Anyway, since a good amount of editing and google searching went into collecting these images, I thought I would post them here in hopes that someone else might find them useful. There are 382 tables represented. I use this in a strictly desktop environment.

  10. You could play around with the capture method, which can be found if you right click your display source and choose Properties. There's no perfect capture method, but one may end up showing your exit screen at least.

  11. You can do that but not with Big Box default ImageVideoView. Would need to use the new FlowVideo controls to do that. It is possible though, just requires quite a bit more custom XAML to pull off.

  16. Should be able to reduce the code to this: <coverFlow:FlowVideo DataContext="{Binding SelectedPlatform}" PlayVideo="True" PlayAudio="False" FallbackToDefault="False" /> If you are wanting to have theme specific platform videos, you can place them in the COMMUNITY Theme Creator files, within: My Theme Projects\TestTheme\BigBox Media Overrides\Videos\Platforms If they are Playlist or Category videos, you should be able to add those folders as well (eg. BigBox Media Overrides\Videos\Playlists)

  17. I don't have a mirror currently. The Eye should be back before too long. Work continues on the update.

I parsed through all of the (4000+) new files in Ultimate Tape Archive V3.0 and pulled out, edited, and reformatted hundreds of new and upgraded manuals and covers. The total manual count is currently 1275 / 47.2% of the collection. I discovered a neat program called Mpxplay which has now been incorporated into the magazines and individual reviews - it's an mp3 player that runs fully in CMD (I've used mpg123 for this previously but this one is nicer), has playlist support, crossfades, and even has a neat frequency visualizer in the CMD window. I've got it setup with a playlist of 50 SID tracks which will randomize each time it's started. I have it setup with a script so that you can display and hide the player as well as skip and pause tracks via the numpad while reading the magazines. It can be disabled outright if so desired through the configurator but I thought this was a pretty neat touch. It should be noted that this only works for the local magazines. I've also created an updated game launcher bat which allows them to be generic/universal which helps simplify and streamline things going forward. I've gone back and replaced some of the existing ones but they won't all be replaced by the time of release - this doesn't actually hurt anything in any practical sense, it's just a backend thing. Thanks to Boohyaka of the eXo project for helping me work through how to create this! Someone (who wished to remain anonymous) was kind enough to help me by creating a plugin which allows me to add the Zzap review additional apps in LB en masse which is going to save me a boatload of time so that's a huge relief. All of the review files are setup for all the remaining titles that will be added in this update, but not all of them are in yet as only 200 of the planned 500 games for this update are setup. Currently there are 1059 Zzap reviews hooked up but that total will be around 1300 once the rest of the games are added. Anyway, that's it for now! More to come.

  20. The CTC doesn't yet have the new FlowVideo control, so by building it with the CTC you'll be using the old video control which does have problems when running in the marquee view. You could get around this limitation by adding a User Source element and copy and paste the FlowVideo code into that.

    PauseTheme that matches the Fading Elegance theme. Designed with 4k Large Screens & TVs in mind. "Fading Elegance v1" and "Fading Elegance v1+" Theme Matching Startup-Exit Theme - can be used with any theme of course The pause button in the center is animated. It loops from Pause to Play. Includes a text file with instructions Funny Fact - Look at the Play Count on the screenshot; well I used the 4 different 007 games in Gamecube to test my changes every time I would make a change. Between the 4 games in my collection, I have played them 430 times when you add them together. Thats a lot of starting and stopping. - The video shows the Startup, Pause and Exit Thanks @faeran & @Retro808 for the help -Enjoy

    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.

  27. Trying this out now @faeran. First impressions: Platform tree and game images view are nice and clean, due to the dark grey background. There seems to be a tiny amount of change to the background when a game is selected; does an image load in the background but just very dark or with maximum transparency? I think it would be nice to have this effect a bit more visible. In the game images view, is the box art faded a little? When you hover the mouse cursor over a game it brightens. I'm not keen on having the artwork faded - would rather show it properly. I like the way that the selected platform is clearly highlighted in the platform tree. Would it be posslbe to also highlight any parent platforms/categories for the selected platform? This way the user can quickly see which platform category, platform and playlists is being selected. In terms of the game details pane, I love the tabs. Much better than scrolling through one big list. It would be great to have 3 tabs however - for game description, info and images. Currently the game description and game info are grouped together in the same tab, necessitating the game info to be in a much smaller font and in a different colour text - and still necessitating scrolling in some cases. A separate tab would allow the game info to be displayed properly in all its glory. I note that for MAME, the MAME high scores is in a separate tab, which is nice. I'm not a big fan of the top half of the front box image being displayed in a slightly faded fashion at the top of the game details pane - especially when the game video plays over the top of it. It's a bit distracting, cluttered looking and also likely a duplication of media as most users would probably be browsing by front box art anyway (though 3D boxes probably come a close second). Faded fanart or screenshot might serve better here. The video itself could probably be made a bit bigger. Do you think it would be relatively easy for me (a coding n00b), given that you have commented most items within the XAML files, to make the above adjustments? Edit: perhaps not so easy lol. My rudimentary attempt at creating an extra tab failed. I just copied the below in the hope that it would add an extra tab: <TabItem Header="Info 2"> <ScrollViewer VerticalScrollBarVisibility="{Binding ScrollBarVisibility}"> <StackPanel Orientation="Vertical" HorizontalAlignment="Center"> </TabItem> But on starting Launchbox I get the error " An error occurred while parsing the custom GameDetailsView. The default view is shows instead. Details on the error are below: System.Windows.Markup.XamlParseException: The 'Stackpanel' start tag on line 223 position 34 does not match the end tag of 'Tabitem'. Line 230, position 21." Something else - in the image tab, thumbnails are shown, which is great. However, some are incorrectly labelled (despite being correctly labelled in Launchbox, according to the game edit window) and some images are missing altogether. See the Bomberman II image tab for NES below: The thumbnails only show 4 images though there are actually 10. It shows the game cartridge under screenshots. Also, it doesn't show any of the box artwork (front, back, 3D), advertisement flyer or anything else. It would be great to have the images grouped here under box art (including cart/disk/etc), screenshots, other (including advertisement flyer, clear logo) and fanart.

  28. Hey Group! I've just completed and uploaded a new set of 16x9 platform videos for use with Launchbox/BigBox (and any frontend really). These are 16x9 in size (1080p/30) and are meant to be used used full screen. Here's a Youtube link with a quick demo of them. I'm working on how to upload them to the Launchbox Downloads section .... not sure if I can upload 30GB or not! ===================== A new set of platform videos for use with all of the various gaming frontends. Launchbox/BigBox Hyperspin Attract Mode etc., etc. There are 465 new platform videos covering: category menus (nested menus) arcade arcade boards collections computers consoles hacks pinball ..plus a few others thrown in All of these are available at the links below. See the full list of supported systems here: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1GWdoWqfPysm-_w49Ll-WAy-dFjwfcNVR/view?usp=sharing NOTE: There are a few more platform videos I'd like to make so that 465 might be wrong at time of posting. --------------------------- EmuMovies FTP: /Upload Here/_Video Snap Submissions/DMarti Two sets are available here: 1080p/60 1080p/30 --------------------------- 1fichier link: Only the 1080p/30 are available here. https://1fichier.com/dir/JlBzqBXf --------------------------- Mega.nz link: Only the 1080p/30 are available here: https://mega.nz/folder/ocFVXSLR#mz0Gp1EsPTjY2byGPi74tg ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ Please share with others and hopefully they are enjoyed!

  29. 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.
