    Excellent, glad the log file helped a little anyway Sorry to have hijacked your thread faeran. Keep up the great work, loving these new themes.

    @faeran I was not able to resolve the game banners issue, but I don't mind as I wanted to use this theme for the categories and platform views (which is working beautifully), and then inside each platform/playlist different themes. I am in the process of making specific banners for my needs. Sharing them here in case somebody wants to grab them: Categories: Magazines and Pinball. Playlists: Hacks and Fan-Made, IGS PolyGame Master, and Recently Played. Platforms: Future Pinball and Pinball FX3. Missing for my set (that I will be doing next) are Microsoft Windows (from the 90s), 3D Realms (playlist), Openbor, Popcap, Tiger Game.com (platforms).

    Looks like that was the issue, only needed to change one line of code to get it working again with the new paths. I've fixed the issue using the dev's github source code. compiled plugin and src attached PCSX2 Configurator Next-fixed.zip PCSX2 Configurator Next.dll

    So I used to play this weird game when I was a kid that had Star Wars droids, and there was some kind of factory where you had to make sure they were assembled correctly, or something like that. I've been searching for the name of that game for years, and nobody knew what I was talking about; no one had ever heard of a game like that from the early 90s. I started to think that I was going crazy, that I had never played such a game, but I held out hope. We're talking fifteen, twenty years I've been trying to crack this. I download this image set, and there are a lot of images for games here that I don't have in my library; naturally, I start going through it, image by image, deleting the files I don't need. And then I see it. "Night Shift", by LucasArts, 1990. Holy. Shit. I'm not lying when I say that my heart literally skipped a beat. I sat there, slackjawed, staring at this box for this game I've been searching for, for a good ten seconds, without taking a breath. I took it all in - my eyes going over every inch, thinking to myself, "Is this real?" And it is. It really exists. So thank you for this pack, for that image alone.

    Guys, this is great. Really ! But I would like to avoid multiple sources (tread) to download the videos. It becomes a mess and it is not clear for new users. For this purpose, I'm preparing a upload of all my sources + a tutorial on the guidlines. The idea is to have only 2 topics on the forum: The current video topic : We will find all mine, but also all yours. With your credit. 1 single place to download everything. Futur sources topic : There will be all my sources, and yours. I'll do a quick tutorial on guidline and my workflow. You will post your work in progress there and I could come and give advice and tips. The choice of color is very important, because for my theme, it should not change for the same platform. There may be several versions of the same video. I really do my best to put it all in place quickly !! I promise! Be patient and all possible help is welcome! πŸ‘ 😘

    Thank you ! Yes, the size of BoxArt comes back often in the comments. The "problem" is that it is important in the overall design. I already started working on it for the next beta. I reduced the overall size of the video by using the bands at the top and bottom. It's not much, but we gain a little visibility. I also reduced the size of the BoxArt slightly. A radical solution would be to remove the BoxArt from the main page and put it in the wheel, instead of ClearLogo. But I must also create Dark version. If I have space, I will make this version. I have a lot of work right now. I do my best to work on Colorful.

    Honestly @viking I mentioned it in your platform video thread, but truly you are an amazing asset to this community. Making this public is such an incredible gift. Thankyou! We will treat it with the respect it deserves!

    Interesting. We added a million and one logs to the shutdown process, and it's pretty obvious that the Chromium Embedded Framework is refusing to shut down, based on that log. So I'm just going to force kill it if that happens in the future. Should be solved for the next beta.

    Just to make sure we are on the same page. Here is the list of game views that are in the theme right now: Horizontal Wheel 1 - The normal banner games view Horizontal Wheel 2 - The normal banner games view with quicker animations Horizontal Wheel 3 - Simple banner view where the banners never fade away Text Games View - Text view with the text menu on the right Here's the list of Platform Views: Platform Wheel 1 - Normal banners view Platform Wheel 2 - Normal banners view that plays music from your videos Platform Wheel 3 - Banners view that fades out and shows platform details

    I'm glad you joined the forums just to complain about not having playtime tracking on a plugin that adds playtime tracking. Thanks for your contribution, hope you have a wonderful day. Thank you for the plugin Grila. Nice little addition.

    Looking great! For those who'd like to try it out, I'm attaching my remap file, it basically maps the right analog to shoot in the direction you point it to, this game was created with this concept, so it uses the 6 button gamepad, B shoots down, X up, two buttons will shoot diagonal, etc., so with this remap, you don't have to worry about it, if you use Retroarch, just put this file in Retroarch\config\remaps\Genesis Plus GX, it should load the remap file automatically, otherwise, load this file manually.

    Not 100% sure if this will also work with WMP (as I mentioned mine is broken so I can only test VLC for now) but you can try adding MaxHeight to your already modified VideoControls line in GameDetails.xaml like this: <controls:VideoControl x:Name="VideoControl" Background="{StaticResource LD_VideoBackgroundBrush}" Visibility="{Binding VideoVisibility}" MaxHeight="500" Margin="0,-10,0,5"/> The value of 500 is just a suggestion, you may want to tweak it depending on your preferred window size. Also this will most likely pillarbox your vertical videos anyway because reducing height also means reducing width. Thanks, appreciated Note that the workaround I'm working on will have a fixed aspect ratio but I'll make it relatively easy to change the default to another one (e.g. 16:9, 4:3 or 3:4 vertical)

    Dude! I was sure I had WMP selected in both LB and BB, but maybe I changed it in LB to test something before and forgot to revert it back. That was it. Cheers and sorry for the back and forth. @shadowfire really nice theme, looks sexy and has little to no dead space (I use LB as list, not images, and with this theme I can see a lot of items). Thanks for sharing.

    Yes it does work with auto-play videos turned off, just tested it. Btw. I really love your theme. I've made a few modifications here and there for myself and now It's my new go to theme for LaunchBox. Great job!

    With Japanese obscure stuff, I often get great results searching in Japanese on Google, you don't need to know how to read Japanese, just by copy/pasting it on google will return something interesting, this one isn't in HQ, but should work until a HQ scan can be found. For example, I used the SegaRetro 倧封η₯žδΌ Japanese name and I was able to find somethings: Daihoushinden (Japan)

    Here are a few banners I whipped up for some of the missing platforms. Thanks for the great theme!

    OK! 3min and first bug! 😁 Still in beta, remember it! I have not finished writing all the presentation text yet. It misses the recommendations. I do not understand this problem. Probably the fact that I am with BigBox v.10 (beta)? And you in 9.10 (stable)? Otherwise, thanks for the comments. And no, the videos are not cropped, but animated by the theme. This is my video set exactly as you can download it.

    @viking those transitions look so sexy and professional! I love how this theme is shaping up Just food for thought: inverted/black version? I am following this thread now.

    3.5 Added: Nintendo Game Boy realistic bezel Note: For some reason I couldn't scale the screen to full screen, seems it's stuck to integer scaling and keeps the borders in tact, anyone else have this problem as well? Any help is much appreciated!

    I wanted everyone to know I have added most from this request to my work queue, however those that are best served by creating a playlist like "Sega Dreamcast Indies", "Sega Dreamcast Homebrew", and "Sega Dreamcast Shumps " will not have anything above and beyond what has been created for the Sega Dreamcast platform itself. The reason being is games in a playlist inherit the default images from the platform, therefore other default images are not required.

    Thx @Indyj ! Yes, I will release all sources. For all platform I make. Photoshop and AfterEffect files. (CS6 and sup) I'll put all this online on a dedicated page. The game rules will be simple: All participants will post their work in progress on this dedicated forum thread. Objective: Overall quality and respect of the guidelines. All participants will post on the thread the final video & sources. It is me who will upload here the final result. Objective : Centralize and avoid the multiple download page.

    hey man. really good video. I hope its ok but i switched the music with a synthwave track that i made. not a huge fan of the 80s guitar type music. Idk if youd want to put it up as another option but i figured id upload it here just in case... lemme know if youd rather me take it down. If anyone wants this let me know and ill upload it Tycho's_BigBox_Arcade_Startup_(PlagueDoxEdit).mp4

    The No Nag turns off all warnings and all messages that appear prior to the launching of the game. I am on my 2nd recompile attempt on version .0211. It seems everyone wants it so I am going to see i can do.

    Brilliant! Cleanest and best platform videos out there. Are you planning to do videos for the platform categories also (consoles, computers, etc)?
