    Update from end of quarantine !! (finally) First of all, thank you all for your patience during this strange period. Today is updat day!! ChangeLog : Version 0.9 - Released May 19, 2020 - New Feature: Split theme in 2 standalone version: Dark + Light. - Improvement: Eatkinola plugin update. - Improvement: Big performence optimization on PlatformView. - Improvement: Big optimization on PNG size. Theme + ClearLogo. - Improvement: PlatformClearLogo color correction for Dark + Light. And here is the theme cut into 2 branches. LIGHT version + DARK version. Now the Dark version is end to end. I stayed in "beta" because I'm waiting for your feedback, just to see if I'm not mistaken. I also integrate the updated @eatkinola plugin, correct the ClearLogo Platforms (depending on the version of the theme) and do a lot of optimization, which I hope will make the theme more smooth. To cut the theme in 2, I had to rename it. So you can have the old and the new version side by side. It will be more annoying in the theme manager of BigBox, because I will have to create new pages. I would also like to take this opportunity to say a GIANT THANK YOU to all my Patreons, it's heart warming !!! Thanks guys 😍

    Final 2 are done. 260 of 260. Huzzah. I've done my last check through as well and found 8 images i want to improve on. Two of those are done already so just 6 left. I hope to get these done today and the whole lot uploaded today too so keep an eye out. I will upload these here as a pack, need to read the forum a bit and figure out proper procedure. I shall also be uploading to my googledrive and sharing a link, i think as a full zip and as individual files. I may create some folder structure for additions or update packs and requests etc. I will need to write up some blurb and "thank yous" to some people too and then i'm done... Right back to these last 6.

    I thought i'll give this awesome new project a quick shoutout, This is a relatively new Project, SNES is the first system they tackled and it is complete with 232 Translations now. They made all the Translations that are available on romhacking.net work with up to date No-Intro roms (so no more digging through old "GOOD sets" or whatever for specific CRC values), practically all you need to to is download this app, point it at your (extracted!) No-Intro set (7zip support is coming later) and it will scan the CRC hashes, apply all the translations without any extra interaction and just dump the 232 translated roms in another folder of your choice. Just to be clear, this does of course not supply the roms, it just patches them. The process went through for me without a problem, along with text files that give credit to the original authors and have some more information about the translations in question (not all translations are complete, some games have 2 translations for the same game and this will tell you the differences), links to the original projects and readme files are included as well. https://www.romhackdb.com https://www.romhackdb.com/news.html The next System they tackle is probably gonna be Sega Genesis. As a Bonus i've made a pass over all games that have been translated in the LaunchBox Database, to make sure they have JAP version 3D Boxes as far as stuff is currently available. And so the games get matched to the correct entries. So make sure when importing to do a fresh scrape of the media. I imported the set in a new folder like this:

    Retro Faeran's Theme Stream Twitch ◽ YouTube The Theme Stream is my running series where the goal is to create (or recreate) a theme for Big Box while I stream the entire process for people to watch and join in on. Veterans, or aspiring themers alike can watch, join in the process, ask questions, and grow our theming skills together. The published theme will then be posted here on the LaunchBox forums for people to try out, along with the COMMUNITY Theme Creator Project Files, for people to mess around with. Past videos will be posted on both my Twitch and YouTube channels, and links to them will be posted below. All themes will be built using @y2guru's COMMUNITY Theme Creator, which allows themes to be built with little, to no, coding. Place and manipulate layered elements on a canvas, add effects, and animation, without needing to know one bit of code. It's simple to use, and if you have any interest in theme creation, I recommend you download it right now. Past Broadcasts Theme Stream #4 - Creating Night at the Arcade I create a brand new theme called Night at the Arcade. This is my take on the 80s arcade experience.

    Thanks so much for posting it! I started going through and making a bunch for my missing systems. Some are of varying quality. Finding HQ images for some of these consoles can be difficult but I think they turned out mostly ok? Hopefully I'll be able to post a complete pack (for my setup) in a few days. Are you ok if I post it? You can add them to the theme if you like too! I'll attach a few samples but I think the forum tends to compress things down a bit so they might look a lil blurry

    sorry. I knew that it's a risk choosing a color scheme for the theme. You can always change the background images to your likings: AllNightLong\Media\Custom Assets I realized that I have left few unused backgrounds there and then it hit me. I could do few color variations in the custom assets folder. I will just rename the files better. So everyone can change the background color to their liking. So if you can't stand blue color you can change the background yourself. Made few alternatives. The views use the same background.

    submitted to LB database. Only one I wasn't able to do is Onslaught; it's too small. There's already one in the database.

    Here are some new screenshots from the upcoming update. As you can see the default color scheme is changed. The blue background is also included but not as default. The new platform view seems to work on 4:3 screen also (have to test more) It includes background video for some WOW effect. Game details view will have bigger video and box art and a loading bar.

    A 53mb zip of all 260 images is now uploaded to the forums "Downloads" area. Looks like its showing up okay for people, so you can jump on these now. File is here... I've also uploaded the zip, all 260 singular files, and the readme, to my googledrive. That can be found here... https://drive.google.com/open?id=1hK-FLANqWD_dLclT82UpYACHikdX4X4f&fbclid=IwAR2InXZyjOWCFOAWEif0pH9TzmyKktyXhkXQgD745ansUhg6rUJt-euD2cs Please check the readme, especially if you've been following along and enjoy the files. Simon.

    I even made this view working and then decided to change everything The only thing that bugged me was that it was really hard to get it working on a 4:3 ratio. However I think I could give it a second chance. Okay, I just started doing this... so in the next update you will have this view.

    Check your background image priorities and make sure everything is still turned off.

    Galaxian, my favorite arcade game of all time. These are great, thanks so much for doing them! Do you have any idea of how far you plan to go before you make Pack 3?

    @Jason Carr Thanks for the info and clarification. Understood on the versioning and experience that on the updates for graphics packages which lag versions by about 2 to 3 weeks from main MAME EXE. Maybe just an XML header comment something similar to what you captured above? Ex: MAME Metadata = ver. 0.221 Third-party data sources = ver. 0.220 Anyway, appreciate all the updates/work on LB, its a great tool.

    To each their own. We probably agree that there's value in not losing our history and there's no library system for games. Archive.org maybe, but I wouldn't trust that to stay forever either. Talking about archive.org, they host TOSEC collections which include bad dumps. While I never understood why people want copies of those, I on the other hand have roms for systems that no emulators exist ie I'm betting on someone way smarter than me creating one in the future. And then there's people who collect things just to collect things. Nothing wrong with hobbies; pointless activities are not pointless if they make you happy or at least less sad
