  1. This is a major nightmare for PC users who like uniformity because it's a giant ol' mess. My solution is a SteamGridDB scraper as that actually has a universal standard; it also would work for Arcade games.
  2. I ain't much of a coder and this feels a bit outside my wheelhouse. But a neat idea would be a plugin that scraps cover images for games from SteamGridDB and applies them to games in any console. This would be great for things like Arcade games that don't have a uniform style like GridDB does or people who prefer to organize by series but also keep a unified style in terms of covers. I don't know how feasible that is but I see stuff like Youtube scrapers so it makes me curious if this can be done.
  3. One thing I've noticed over my edits is that a lot of PC Games not on Steam do not conform to a universal standard. No uniform sizing making everything look mismatched when you browse in your library. For this I propose a new project, SteamGridDB Intergration. Offering a Steam Poster variant for every game we can using the SteamGridDB service. Now for platforms like consoles it shouldn't be needed as they already conform to a standard. But for say, non-Steam games or fan games, this would be perfect for uniformity, I've already started with Sonic Robo Blast 2, SRB2K, Halo Singleplayer Version
  4. I think I figured out a fix. Made the first pic uniform, added a second background pic, used uniformtofit on it, applied opacity of 50, blur of 30.
  5. Update from last night, decided to take the uniform image I did and make it fill to uniform. Lemme know what you think.
  6. I'd like to know how to approach thin box games. Things like Fire Emblem 4 on SNES or the PSP line up. I see some PSP games look fine but when I try to do it it feels like I'm making mistakes. Should I use Uniform to Fit when making custom images?
  7. I'm trying to figure out good music choices for my Big Box platforms beyond just game themes which doesn't appeal to me, I perfer the kind of thing the SNES/NES Classic did with it's music. Reccomend me some good music for NES, SNES, Genesis, PS1, PS2, N64, Game Boy, GBA, DS, Wii, Gamecube, Wii U, PSP, and Windows please?
  8. The only problem I have is how it handles white text in logos, AKA poorly. The white text just merges with the background and becomes unreadable. I've noticed it with the Nintendo DS, Sonic 1, Jed Fallen Order, and Undertale. I think maybe a grey background around the area where logo text goes would really help, maybe lower the opacity on the grey if it helps.
  9. Simply put, I think it may be appropriate to turn the fan art section of collections to promo art. I feel that if we're incorporating fan art then we need to credit the artists which is impossible, and fan art can vary in quality. Promo art on the other hand doesn't require crediting and keeps a baseline of consistency in both directions.
  10. Simple as it is, I can't get any games that use retroarch running on Launchbox, it used to run fine but now the game will enter the boot screen and then nothing. The games run when booted from retroarch fine, but not the other way around. I tried uninstalling Retroarch, and then deleting retroarch in the Launchbox Directory and readding it, and then messing with the cores that Launchbox assigns to run the games, I just don't know how to fix it and I feel stuck.
  11. Understood. Do you have the proper clear logo downloads for us?
  12. I recently added PS1 games to Big/LaunchBox but when I go to the platform wheel I just get the blank and generic font for playstation as opposed to the logo. Is there anyway to get the logo and force it to appear or not?
  13. Whenever I use launchbox or Big Box my computer cursor disappears which isn't normally a problem but I use two monitors and want to control the shows/forums/social medias/programs to spy on you in the shower. How do I toggle this?
