    I love how super fast this theme is compared to the others! I had a few issues and missing platforms that I wanted to address. So I've updated the artwork, backup content.. Maybe the main author would like to implement . Plus attached is alt background if you want to override in Themes\Woodpanels\Media\Background\ folder if you want to change it.

  1. You don't have a "touch" controller in lunchbox meta data controller options. I've been building "touch games" theme for big box for people with touch games. I still can't believe no one in this community has any focus on touch arcades with the touch games world we now live in. Anyone can quickly add multi-touch to there arcade with a IR simple overlay. https://www.amazon.com/SpecialTouch-Points-Multi-Touch-Infrared-Touch/dp/B08HQTDVDB/ref=sr_1_5?dchild=1&keywords=IR+touch&qid=1623986783&sr=8-5 Please add this category. Thanks.
  2. When are these community polls? I'm not asking for touch functionality all over big box just the keyboard where it comes useful.
  3. I've built a 40inch touch Bigbox. Everything works except for search keyboard that pops up. Can you support touch on the keyboard buttons?
  4. Jason you are right to drop android, I knew allot of people asked for it, but I knew it would be more trouble than it's worth. However I thought it was very interesting how you went about it. Using Launchbox to build the library as set set and export it to a platform. Library building is what your product does best, and that should be your most forefront task. However you have to be careful on Front Ends, more and more of them are coming out, and most of them are actually really nice. I think more should go into BigBox, and exports for other frontend that don't complete with
  5. Something is going on with a missing font and font sizes. On my Rotated display its does not have the same font, and the font size is really huge. The good news is BigBox recognized it, I can wait for future releases.
  6. So I'm myself I'm building a arcade that rotates between 0,90,270 video positions depending on how a person sits down. Mame/Bigbox is very fixed on a rotation, so is the games and themes. I have Android games, Pinball, and Arcade games that are suppose to be played in the 90 or 270 position. So with Retroarch they have some auto rotate functions for 90/270 options for Mame, and using retroarch overlays with them will rotate accordingly . I have that part solved. However PC Games/Android games i do not, that what I'm trying to do, by adding launch configurations. I also have to dupl
  7. Looks like it off to a nice start I will download it and take a look at it tonight. I'm not sure about the choice of font yet, but I'll check it out. Nice work, Big Box is in need of Vertical themes.
  8. You cheated, you have a real workshop! 😛 Nice work. Vertigo is the only Vertical theme that I know of. Bigbox lacks big time in vertical themes. Like Retro808 said you can make your own theme. I just don't have the time to make one right now. I know that CoinOp, and Pipup and some of the other front ends have more of a selection of Vertical theme. Every time someone says vertical they think it's just pinball, but a great amount of early games only look right in vertical. Plus a great amount of Android games that you can emulate on PC is also vertical, so to me Horizontal and Ve
  9. Looks awesome! What type of vertical theme are you using?
  10. I've released a update, I forgot to remove my some of my testing parameters. It now does what it suppose to do. Let me know if you find this useful. Maybe I can see what I can do to make a built in Launchbox Plugin. I have not look into making a plugin yet, if I can I want to see if I can do this, however I don't I could make BigBox follow these rules.
  11. Thank you Loardmonkus, your list and taste seems to be in good order. Fromlostdays, that's what I've been doing too, it's just allot of research when you want to keep the game duplication down too. Example like from LoardMonkus Collection. Ecco the Dolphin is on Sega Genesis, and Sega CD, however one would claim that Sega CD was the better version due to the CD audio sound tracks. Those are the things I'm looking to have someone say that game is the better of them all. Also game consoles system had different color palettes, audio output, and scrolling functions too. I'm was
  12. Thank you for your replies. I totally get Top list "who cares". I'm adding them in with my personal favorites to add some variety for other people taste, or for some nice throw backs. Hence the Top list route I was trying to take. However trying to figure out which game was best at what platform is hard choice for me. If someone has some list to suggest or sites to point me to for a slim but best single choice game for a certain platform. That would be great. This all started to look at what others have done, but everyone put every game in the collection. I want to l
  13. So I've noticed that allot of people have huge large game collections. However I don't want to bogged down my collection with games such as Sesame Street/Elmo/ Counting 123 ABC. If you get my drift, I respect the archival process, but having everything is not my cup of tea. So I'm keeping my collection to like Top 10,25,50 games depending on the platforms and avoid game duplications as much as possible. Most importantly I want games that a exclusive to that platform that are hits. However as I was researching games for Top games for that platform, I've still noticed allot
  14. Version 1.0.1


    So I wrote a quick command line tool, that does what I personally think that Launch box should do. We should have options on how a program is executed. It’s written in C# and is on Github feel free to use any of this code to give launchbox some application launching options. https://github.com/ninken/vidswitch/releases/tag/1.0 Vidswitch is a simple command line application that allows you to launch a application maximized on any monitor, and can rotates that monitor. (Requires Dotnet 4.0 or higher) Parameter 1 - Display Number [ 1, 2, 3, 4, .... ] Parameter 2 - Rota
