  1. I just figured it out, for those wanting to do this, it's in ThumbnailListView.xaml file, just open that and insert this Setter Property with MaxWidth in bold below, can also do max height if you want, but max width around 200 to 300 is perfect. <Style x:Key="ThumbnailListBoxItemStyle" TargetType="ListBoxItem"> <Setter Property="FocusVisualStyle" Value="{x:Null}" /> <Setter Property="MaxWidth" Value="300" />
  2. I know this is from ~3 years ago, but is there an easy way to shrink images in Big Box custom themes? What is the code to adjust the "Max Size" of the PNG Clear logos that are used? would be great to use a "max-width="100px" or something like that. Any ideas? Been searching and cannot find Thank you!
  3. I have been searching for pedals to use with MAME driving games, having no luck. Pedals that are stand alone not with steering wheel (I have a Utlimarc spinner + wheel). Using Windows 10 + Retroarch but can use standalone MAME if needed. Would need to be USB connected is my guess, but I also have i-Pac2 just not sure those allow force feedback type pedals. Found these on Amazon, might just purchase and see, but guessing someone else has done this in the past? Thanks for any thoughts Found these: https://www.amazon.com/CH-Products-Pedals-Simulator-300-111/dp/B0000512IE https://www.amazon.com/ThrustMaster-2960764-Thrustmaster-TFRP-Rudder/dp/B015PII6YI/ref=pd_sbs_147_img_0/130-9798706-1601549?_encoding=UTF8&pd_rd_i=B015PII6YI&pd_rd_r=b03e2872-c6af-437b-9912-76bac9c1986f&pd_rd_w=OLLSu&pd_rd_wg=bLW42&pf_rd_p=5cfcfe89-300f-47d2-b1ad-a4e27203a02a&pf_rd_r=2ARXTNEDC510YP87YTH2&psc=1&refRID=2ARXTNEDC510YP87YTH2
  4. Thank you both, I will just use MAME stand alone for those. One more question - or 2 What MAME is best? Can I use 2003-Plus to match my ROMs? or maybe just 2003? Will the config files be in folders like RA , as cfg files, or other? Thanks!
  5. Hi, I am having no luck on this issue, hoping someone has gone through this. I am trying to use Retroarch with MAME but I am very close to doing MAME stand alone, it does not seem to work well with spinners and trackballs when it comes to sensitivity etc. For example - there is no way I can see through RA to say "hey I would like my default spinner key/joy speed to be 5 for all games" (That is a setting in MAME Analog Options via MAME menu) SO, to achieve this I need to create cfg files for each game, which is fine, i dont have a huge collection. It seems to do this you open the game, then MAME menu, edit, then "Save Game-options file" from RA Quick Menu. I can do that once, then duplicate .opt file for that game across other games. BUT, is that the only way? At this point I might just use standalone MAME for racing / spinner / trackball games, just seems to be a pain to deal with RA when it comes to Spinner/Trackball fine tuning. for the config files, found these folders with MAME config files, and then the game config files. But updating settings in Mame menu does not update cfg file, you must create the Game-Options file (I think) LaunchBox\Emulators\RetroArch\config LaunchBox\Emulators\RetroArch\config\MAME 2003-plus Thanks for any thoughts!
  6. Yes for sure, I did hit a snag though, because the way COLORFUL lays out Platform Wheel, if you joystick over to Favorites, you cannot go down to press the A button to launch that platform. So you can launch a favorite but not sure how to get between favs and A launch without switching to another platform. I am going to play with it more. I was messing around last night with Default, and using white background with Platform Wheel 1 on that, stripping away the top right content, and just leaving favs and recents rows, with the bg video from COLORFUL for that platform, did not look half bad, but the favs/recent boxes cover the video too much. Anyway, will keep playing and share some stuff for sure!
  7. I figured this out in case anyone is interested in adding favorites / recent to COLORFUL Platform view. I had to remove the animation for the text area under title since I removed the code snippet that shows the text (NOTE BLOC TEXT). Under this section, just remove the code there with animation. <!-- ANIMATION - NOTE BLOC TEXT - FADE IN + UP SLIDE --> Here is what ended up working , although still work in progress, sizing of the images etc. still needs to be played with. I can post the final code once I am done. <transitions:TransitionPresenter Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Grid.Row="3" Grid.RowSpan="2" TransitionSelector="{Binding TopBoxesTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding TopBoxesView}"/>
  8. Hi, I have looked through the theme videos and forums but cannot find how to do the following: I love the COLORFUL Theme, but really want Favorites and Recent for each Platform in the Platform Wheel view, like is shown in Default or CriticalZone or a few others. I am editing the XAML files and found the right place (I am going to remove the text area and replace with a row that shows favorites.) (I read the Documentation PDF in Themes folder, but it never really mentions how to show Favorites, I am guessing its TopBoxesView?) If I copy and paste this from Default Theme in the Platform Wheel 1, it does not work. <transitions:TransitionPresenter Grid.Row="3" TransitionSelector="{Binding TopBoxesTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding TopBoxesView}" /> So I copied a portion of the COLORFUL Platform Wheel 1 theme view and edited with TopBoxesView <transitions:TransitionPresenter Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Grid.Row="3" Grid.RowSpan="2" TransitionSelector="{Binding TopBoxesTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding TopBoxesView}"/> But this throws an error in Big Box, so I am stuck. Anyway, thank you for any guidance!
  9. Hi, wondering how you were able to create this favorites section, I am trying to edit the COLORFUL theme and add a favorites section to each platform, but this is the only code I can find in "Default" Theme that shows the favorites <transitions:TransitionPresenter Grid.Row="3" TransitionSelector="{Binding TopBoxesTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding TopBoxesView}" /> Is TopBoxesView the hard coded portion with Favorites? Not sure what to do to insert a favorites Row into another theme Thanks!
