  1. Retro Console Startup and Shutdown Theme

    Ok, here is my Retro Console Startup and Shutdown Theme. This is a slightly different version that the one you can download on the BigBox Theme page because it has a 'Loading Bar'. This has been a big request. I also added some new controller graphics and a few more platforms. Enjoy!
    The biggest change here is the Loading Bar which can be seen in the images but just incase you are wondering, yes, it is animated and moves from left to right as the game loads.
    You can download other versions and the entire theme to go with it HERE:

  2. Retro Console - BB Theme, Startup and Shutdown Theme, Pause Theme and more

    Ok, here is version 2 of my Retro Console Theme. This is a MASSIVE overhaul and Includes ANIMATIONS. Thanks to @y2guru and his unending support and development of the 'Community Theme Creator', which now offers an animation tool, I was able to completely rebuild this theme and make it the way I originally intended. Thank You as always my man!
    The original theme without animations can be found here: Retro Console Version 1
    Pretty much every single view has been redone with at least more flare and details, but some of them are totally re-imagined. I have also added several new views and many more platform specific views. All with animations, subtle but informative (hopefully).
    One of the game views that has a smaller monitor window on the right side of the screen now plays a video in a loop of the matching consoles original startup or boot screen. Not all are included as I have not been able to find them on YouTube. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on where to look for more, would be very helpful!
    NEW: Playmode Icons - All custom and added all over the theme.
    NEW: I made a new view that is intended for use with newer consoles like PS3 and XBOX360. Looks good but does not require as much artwork since there is not much available yet.
    ALSO NEW are several controller button packs that can be swapped out to match your setup. These include 4 buttons each and are color coded throughout the theme:
    GREEN = Select RED = Back Blue = Search Yellow = Game info screen To use these you should just download the pack you want and drop it in the following folder: ?\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Theme Anim V2\Media\buttons\. Make sure to overwrite the existing ones. 
    controller buttons - arcade.zip: This is a set of generic arcade buttons that can be used for any setup. Just colored and round. controller buttons - numbered.zip: This is a set of numbered controller buttons (1 - 4) for controllers that have numbered buttons. controller buttons - ps3.zip: This is a set of PlayStation controller buttons  controller buttons - xbox.zip: This is a set of Microsoft XBOX controller buttons  I will gladly take any requests for additional controller buttons as long as they don't require changing the theme. (max of 4 buttons in a pack)
    ALSO:
    @Wanderer189 has made a huge contribution to this theme in the form of several downloadable add-on packs full of clear logos for each platform. These include literally thousands of logos made for each Genre, Playmode, ETC. This is an amazing thing and I thank you for your hard work Wanderer. You are awesome. If you would like to get these logos for your setup they can be found here:
    What is this theme:
    This is a video snap based BigBox theme. Heavily designed around the use and display of video snaps. This theme has over a hundred views including one that offers a different look for each platform including handhelds. There is a large amount of custom graphics and logos and images and icons etc. Hence the large file size. Use the startup and pause themes to complete the seamless setup. (also included here) All icons including stars for 'consumer ratings' and 'ESRB rating' and the new 'playmode icons' are custom and included in the theme file. Use them all you want. I am using the nostalgia platform videos and these are perfect for this theme. I may make my own someday but for now these are Great. @Wanderer189 is currently making videos for every genre and playmode. (you are awesome buddy, thank you so much for all your hard work and contributions to this and other themes) Available Downloads:
    Retro Console Theme Anim V2.zip - This is the entire theme including platform and platform device logos as well as all icons so you don't have to download them individually. This does not include the startup video, startup or pause themes, collection logos, etc. controller buttons - arcade.zip - Arcade panel based controller buttons controller buttons - numbered.zip - Number based controller buttons controller buttons - ps3.zip - PlayStation based controller buttons controller buttons - xbox.zip - XBOX based controller buttons Retro-Console-Pause.zip - The pause theme I made also to match this theme. (screens below) Retro-Console-Startup.zip - The startup and shutdown theme I made to match with this theme. (screens below) Platform Clear Logos.zip - Included in the theme download but also here in case you just want them alone. These were made specifically for this theme. Platform Device Logos.zip - Also made for this theme for the platform view that uses device images. Collection Device Logos.zip -  Made to match this theme for the platform view that uses device images for each collection I use. I can make more upon request. Collection Logos.zip - Same as the platform logos. Made to match so they can be used in this theme. Platform Categories.zip - A bunch of category logos also made to match this theme. Startup Video.zip - A startup video I made just to add to the overall completeness of the theme. Not at all necessary but here if you want it. Retro Console Sound Pack.zip - Again not required but here if you want it. This is what i use in the video below. Just unzip it to your launchbox sounds folder and then select it in BigBox. Platform Original Boot Videos.zip - This is a pack of just the new startuo videos for each console or platform I could find. (included in theme so no need to download unless you want just these) Recommendations:
    Set your Image priorities in Launchbox as follows - Cart Front ( add disc images to the list - this is used in many views in this theme) Set your startup and shutdown time limits in launchbox settings. (mine are: startup=5 sec and shutdown=3.5 sec) I designed this around the Nostalgia Platform Videos. You can use anything but those will fit and line up best. This theme assumes an xbox controller setup: A=Select, B=Back, X=Search, Y=Game Details and Select Button=Change View (not  required) I also set the left bumper to platforms and right bumper to platform categories. (not required but helpful) Get as many Banner, Steam Banner and Marquee images as you can. This theme offers a unique view for all arcade cabinet based games and will use those images. There is also a custom view for systems like Windows that also use them. Future Plans:
    Create a new view that uses the original loading video from each console. (started on 1-3-2020) DONE Complete the white silhouette console and controller images that are used in the startup theme. DONE Add animations to the theme ( @y2guru is working on this ability for his theme creator as we speak and I will update once it is ready) DONE Make platform videos to match this theme (maybe) - In the works How to Install:
    Extract Retro Console Theme.zip to your launchbox themes folder. This includes all the platform and device logos you need and will automatically use them. ( In order to use other logos just delete the ones in this theme folder) You can also use the startup and pause themes to add more of a consistent flow. Drop the startup video (if you want it) in the launchbox videos root folder. This theme currently has over 80 different platforms and includes the matching device logos, collection logos, category logos and more but some of these have to be added manually through launchbox (sorry). I can not figure out how to make them automatic.

  3. Retro Console - BB Theme - Startup Theme - Pause Theme and more

    Here is my first theme. This theme was made almost entirely in @y2guru's theme creator tool that is my absolute favorite community addition. Very cool for people like me who love to design. Thank you for making this y2guru. My intention was to make a seamless theme that felt like a console but offered a very different feel than all the already existing and amazing themes found on this forum. I Hope you like it. Let me know if you need more logos but keep in mind i can only work on this once a week.
    Credits:
    Not sure where to start, I was mostly inspired by @viking and @Rincewind for their contributions and then i found the 'Community Theme Creator' made by @y2guru which changed everything. But most of all, credit should go to Launchbox itself and this entire community. I have used several things i found at this forum but most of this theme was made by me. If I have missed someone I am truly sorry and it was not intentional. Please let me know and I will of course edit this page.

  4. Atelier Games 3D Boxes,Box Backs, Discs, Logos, Marquees

    Here you go. For all the Atelier Anime RPG games fans out there. I have created a media pack for all the PC versions that I have and thought I would share it with everyone. Hope you like it. I was not able to find any content for any of these games that was consistent or even complete so I made these. These are completely made from scratch, and yes they come with discs even though they might not have ever been released on disc.
    If you need more that I have not included send me the names and I will try to make them for you. Happy Gaming!

  5. TouHou Project 3D Boxes, discs, Video Snaps

    I started these a while ago because I could not find any thing else at the time. Not sure if I missed something or not but I thought it would be cool to share these now that I finally finished them. 
    What is here:
    3D Boxes for every TouHou Game (I Think) A video snap for each game as well A custom disc image for each game I hope these help someone complete their setup. Enjoy!
    Full Disclosure: I did not make these video snaps and I can not remember where I got them but all credit goes to the person who did. I just wanted to share them and make it easier to find for others.
    PS: If I am missing any important TouHou games, please let me know what titles and I will make them.

  6. PopCap Media Pack - boxes, logos, videos, discs

    Hello All, Here is the PopCap media pack I have been working on for a while. There are 46 games in total. I could not find any existing art or packs to make this look good in Launchbox so I created this one. I hope you like it. My photoshop skills are amateur at best but for me, this is better than nothing. Enjoy!
    Included:
    46 3d-boxes 46 box fronts 46 box backs 46 clear logos 46 videosnaps 46 Disc Images I only made the box artwork. I did not make the logos or the videosnaps. I would give credit to who did but I have no idea who it was and can not remember where I found them.
    Not: The video snaps are in .flv format. Launchbox has no issues with them on my system. I hope they work for all!

  7. Simple Detailed Startup

    Hello all, here is my first contribution to this community. I have enjoyed so many countless hours of fun as a result of Launchbox and everyone here and I have always wanted to give back so here you go. I made this originally after being inspired by @Palada. He made a Beautiful startup theme to go with my new favorite BigBox theme by @viking, called Colorful. At first I just wanted to add more platforms but you know how it goes. I went a little crazy. Anyway I hope you all like and enjoy this theme.
    Versions:
    Simple-Detailed-Startup-ml.zip - This one Uses Platform Logos from a folder in this theme that were made by ME. Simple-Detailed-Startup-yl.zip - This one uses Platform Logos that were set up by YOU in Launchbox. I am using assets from both @Palada and @viking  and of course all over this community. Please give credit to both for making this possible. Once i got going though I ended up with very little that I did not make on my own. I am not sure of the proper way to give credit, but if anyone has an issue with anything I have posted, let me know and I will take it down immediately.
    Colorful Theme by @viking (please consider patreon to help him with this amazing theme) Minimal Colorful Start by @Palada This was designed for a 1080p big screen TV. That is where my set up is and all my kids play on it. I tried this on my laptop and it all looked good but if you have any issues with layout or other please let me know. I will do my best to fix it.
    IMPORTANT: Please make sure your Launchbox image priorities are set or no images will appear and the theme will look boring. I recommend setting:
    Background Priorities to: Fanart-Background and Screenshot-Gameplay in that order Screenshot Priorities to : Screenshot-Gameplay and then what ever you want after that. What Is It?
    OK, this is a startup and shutdown theme that is unique for every platform. It includes a controller silhouette, game art game details on startup plus it has an animated GIF loading icon as well as a GIF closing icon. Every platform has its logo displayed. I had to make all of these so that they would fit. This means that some may be missing, but there is currently 77 platform logos and I plan to add more as time goes on. The controller silhouettes are also all custom and may be missing a few but it has 77 currently as well. (some are the same for multiple platforms) It also has a favorite icon in the bottom right corner that will be red if your game is Favorited. How to use it:
    This is my first upload, but you should be able to unzip it to your Launchbox Startup Themes Directory and Then select it from within BigBox. Please make sure that all of the *.xaml files in the root of this addon match EXACTLY to your platform names or they will not work. FIXED If you have any requests or problems please drop me a comment, I will do my best to stay on top of it.
    I hope I am not forgetting anything, Please enjoy and thank you all for the many years of fun. Keep on Gaming!
     
    PS: I have also made a Pause Theme to match and complete the whole setup. (this is a remake of PausePie by @faeran)

  8. Simple Detailed Pause Theme

    Ok, so this is a re-make of the PausePie theme by @faeran. He made a very nice and clean pause theme that I love and have used since it was first released, Thank you Faeran! I modified and tweaked it quite a bit so that it would match the startup theme I made called Simple Detailed Startup. Credit goes to faeran for the original work, most of which is still in use. Please enjoy this pause menu and keep on gaming!
    @faeran, I will be glad to remove this if you request at anytime.
    What is it?
    This is a very simple pause menu with some basic animated GIF's. It displays info about the game and artwork.  Designed to go best with the Colorful Theme by @viking How to use it:
    Just unzip this to your Launchbox PauseThemes folder and then select it in BigBox and Launchbox. I hope I am not forgetting anything, please let me know if you have any problems or questions.
    PS: I have also made a Startup Theme to match.
