  1. Unlocked View File About This Theme The original idea I had for this theme was more complex I think but I didn't really like it when I was finished. Instead, I simplified it and tried to make it more clean. I love the Colorful theme and how it has animation when selecting items and wanted to try something similar without actually copying it straight over. If you have any suggestion I'm always all ears. The Theme Creator files are also included if you want to make any changes or additions as well. Notes The Original Concept Theme Creator Files are my original design for this theme. If you publish either the dark blue or light blue version in the Theme Creator they are both usable themes. I just wasn't happy with them when they were finished. The Final Theme Creator Files are the files for the theme I decided to go with and upload. The No video version just has no background videos playing. The no animations version, has no lock or slide animations and no videos. The theme was changed a little bit so that the menus were still usable. Installation Download the version of the theme you'd like. See the Notes section for a little more information. Extract the .zip files using windows explorer or your program of choice to your Launchbox/Themes folder. Go to theme settings in Big Box and switch to theme you like. Special Thanks I have to give special thanks to @faeran for the wonderful theme creator videos on the Unbroken Software LLC Youtube channel. Also, I used Faeran's ESRB Images and Star Images in the original concept of this theme. Visit the Unbroken Software Youtube Channel Here I also have to give a huge thank you to @y2guru for the very awesome Theme Creator. I cannot code and so without the theme creator I wouldn't be able to do any of this. Download the Theme Creator Here Submitter jhayes0027 Submitted 09/14/2021 Category Big Box Custom Themes

  3. Hello Tony I'm glad you like it. It took me a moment to realize what you meant lol I was looking for a Star Rating in the bottom right and got all confused. I'm still new to this. As far as the line of code, I honestly don't know how to code these at all or where to begin with that. I do know that I put all that into into a Dock. The ESRB image is just sitting in the dock and the information beside it is all sitting in a Stack. If you delete that ESRB Image it should center the stack of text. Or, you can download the Community Theme Creator, it's quick and simple to install. You can then download the Theme Creator Files I uploaded, it should include the light and dark version. Just open it up in Theme Creator and you will be able to freely click on any of the stuff in the theme. I tried my best to name everything as well. If you just click on and delete the ESRB image it should center all that text up for you. Then you just click Publish and it should set it straight up in Launchbox again for you. You may have to delete the stuff you did the first time or you can do it from within the theme as well. Sorry if this was long winded. I'm kind of learning as I go lol. If it gives you any troubles let me know and I will try to help. EDIT: I read your post entirely wrong yesterday. I updated this comment, originally I had told you a way to center the ESRB image and not the text. This should work better.
  4. Thank you :). The Dark version was originally the first version but when I made the light one I made so many changes they looked like two different themes lol.
  5. Boxed In View File Sorry about the description I'm having an issue and am trying to update it. For some reason part of it turned color. Submitter jhayes0027 Submitted 09/03/2021 Category Big Box Custom Themes

    About This Theme This is my second attempt with the Theme Creator. I tried incorporating some things I"ve learned from the Theme Workshop Videos. I know it's simple but this one took me a while to get where I wanted while learning. I also tried to keep everything more clean this time so if anyone is using the Theme Creator Files they should be easier to navigate than they were in my first one. If you have any questions, comments, or requests please let me know. My week off work is coming to an end but I will definitely be using the theme creator some more. Notes I created this on a 4k 55" tv at 1440p resolution with 125% display scaling. If you have any issues please let me know so I can try and fix them. Credits and Special Thanks I would like to thank @faeranfor the Theme Workshop Videos. I used the ESRB Rating Images from the Tilt theme and I used the Star Rating Images from the Modern X Theme. Download ModernX Here Download Tilt Here I also would like to give a huge thanks to @y2gurufor the Theme Creator. It is awesome and I wouldn't even be able to try creating a theme without it. Download the Theme Creator Here
    Ive had the week off of work and this has been a lot of fun for me during my time off. I haven't begun to understand everything in it but it makes creating a theme possible for someone like me who has no experience with coding.
  7. That is a good idea. I actually didn't even realize I could do the margins and things until I was a good ways into it. I was just resizing things kind of willie nillie lol. I will remember to change that when I kind of do some revisions. Thank you. Edit: I went ahead and made the change on my local files it does look better. Thanks for the suggestion, I reuploaded the theme.. I am going to upload the theme creator files too because I forgot about that.
  8. Thanks I really appreciate the files and videos. I'm watching the one about RetroFresh now. I just realized while watching it that I could rename the layers. As simple as that might sound it would've been helpful when I was changing colors for the dark and light versions lol.
  9. Thank you, I am open to any suggestions and thoughts. So long as I can learn it within the theme creator I should be able to figure out different things to do. Learning to code might be a different story though, lol.
  10. Simply Gray View File Introduction This is my first attempt with Theme Creator. I have been watching Unbroken Software's Youtube Channel and the Theme Workshop videos. I just want to say that I borrowed heavily from the "Tilt" theme to make this. I initially set out just to try and make a simple wall view but had fun trying to learn some of the different Wheel's and the theme creator stuff. Just an fyi, I can't code at all so apart from what I used from the Tilt workshop files and the Colorful theme everything was done in the Theme Creator. I will try and give credit for everything that I used below. The theme workshop files have really helped me begin to learn the theme creator and I feel comfortable now that I could probably make a design in Photoshop and recreate it in the Theme Creator. I initially set out just to try and make myself a simple wall view for the Tilt Theme but had a good time using it to learn. Notes I did all this using a 55" LG 4k TV. I tested out a few different resolutions and didn't notice any problems. If you happen to run into any issues please let me know and I can try and figure out how to fix them. I know what little animation I used might be kind of janky but I will try and get better with that. I also didn't set any of the image views to play a background video except for a couple of the platform views that play the Colorful Theme. The Game List Text view will play a video and if you click on any game the Game Info Screen will fade out into video as well. I prefer the Colorful Video by @viking for the platform videos but I think any should look ok. Installation Just download the .zip file for the version of the theme you want. Open the .zip file and place the folder in your Launchbox/Themes folder. OR Use your preferred software to extract it to your Launchbox/Themes folder. Switch between the different views until you find one you might like Credits and Special Thanks I want to give a huge Special Thanks to @faeran and the Unbroken Software Youtube Channel for the Theme Workshop videos. These are a great help. I used the .xaml file from Faeran's "Tilt" theme as well as the theme colors that change on platform switches. I don't know how to code my own .xaml files yet. Download Tilt Here I also want to give a huge Special Thanks to @viking I changed some of the platform colors around to match up with his Colorful Videos and used the Platform Clear Logo images. I also love the "Colorful" theme and it's a big inspiration. Download Colorful Here Last but not least I'd like to thank @y2guru for the Community Theme Creator. With my extreme lack of coding ability I wouldn't even be able to play with making themes if it weren't for the Community Theme Creator.
