    Wow, awesome!

    No that's pretty much the only major system I can think of I'd like included. :)

    Nintendo Switch has been added to the latest version, please take a look.  It will take some time before it makes its way into the the Big Box theme gallery.

    I really enjoy this theme, it suits my lounge HTPC perfectly!

    Will there be any further updates made to this theme post 3.3.0? Nintendo Switch emulation is getting better all the time, could we see a Switch theme added soon to this pack? :)

    Sure I can add the Switch. Give me a few days to get to it. Any other systems you need while I'm in there?

    Is adding it to the game list view platform specific?

    Unfortunately the way I set it up, it is platform specific.  I treated each platform as special and unique so I could modify the width of the gameslist and size/placement of the box art and have more freedom overall with the look.  Making a universal change means making that change one at a time for every supported platform as a result (the tradeoff!)

    You'll probably be ready to go before I get to this.  Attached to this post are the COMMUNITY creator project files for what I started (only modified the default gameslist view).  If you need any PSD source files for the TVs or Consoles let me know, I can send you a dropbox link.

    Update 2/25/2021: After looking into this some more, I have decided I will not be pursuing adding the metadata to the theme proper.  I'd have to add it one at a time to each platform, which is a lot of work, and it's not something I personally prefer with this theme.  You can still use the project files attached to extend the theme yourselves using the COMMUNITY theme editor, though!  Let me know if you have questions about the theme and I'll do my best to answer them.

    Excited for the version with additional info!  How close do you suspect you are to releasing it?  My project is coming along rather nicely and I think this will be the finishing touch to bring it all together.  3d printing a case to merge my external hdd with my mini pc now.

    It's a lot of work to add that, believe it or not.  Can you give me a prioritized list of platforms/consoles?  I can get a version out faster if I don't have to do every single platform.

    @retrogamer459 Alright here's what I got mocked up.  I had to kill the gigantic baseboard to make room.  Is this what you're looking for?  Also, as far as the disc number, if you set up your games correctly then you should only have one listing per game, not one per disc.  It's different depending on the system and emulator you're using but as far as LaunchBox goes it's pretty easy.  See this thread for some info

    @Maul83 I updated it to support PlayStation 3.  Please take a look and let me know if anything is off.

    @retrogamer459 Still working on trying out your request; it will take some more time.

    I have updated the theme here for now; will submit it for inclusion in BigBox proper later on.

    Is it possible to add your own console picture (for what sits on top of the TV)? I tried to add a PS3, by adding the picture in DeviceFront and naming it the same as the platform, but it didn't work. 

    In theory? It's probably just easier if I add it to the theme proper. If you have a good image of the console / controller to use please send it on over and I'll add it to the theme.

    I would enjoy a view that gave game info like release date and number of players and same with consoles. I love this theme but the only thing that would make it better for me would be loading all the metadata and displaying it.  I have a lot of multidisc games too and its confusing what disc is what as well.

    I chose to hide that information for a clean look, but I'm not opposed to making an alternate version for you.  Where would you recommend I put that metadata?

    It is done!  Please see the latest version here. (it takes time to get approval through BigBox proper)

    I'm really digging the style and simplicity of this theme! However, it would be great if the box artwork were somehow incorporated into the games list layout. Otherwise, fantastic work!

    Box art has been added to version 2.1.0 as requested

    Great theme !

    I just change the background for something abstract, it makes the theme more in my taste!

    I love it, thank you very much for your work :)

    Thanks! And very cool - would love to see how you've customized it.
