  1. Hello SkyHighGam3r, what a name I did release this theme some month ago. I do have a arcade cabinet with old CRT tv...not even sure it is 640 x 480 . So I built this theme by increasing everything i can ... specially FONT and Wheel ... I also include the source code, so you can start from there...Up to you. To be honest, i didn't found any of the theme with big test font. Some can fit in 4:3 but then, all text , like description of the game are unreadable with old TV...
  2. Hello, so is this solution still working after couple of week ? I have the same issue. Well, just to make sure we talk about same thing... My situation : All MAME only lightgun working well with multiple screen. But this is not the case with M2 emulator. The calibration horozontal ratio is wrong, he calculate the position by adding main x resolution + x resolution marquee screen. The only solution found so far is to close my marquee when player those game. And this laid to a second issue for me, since when i close marquee screen, because it is a special custom resolution., i need to recreate it. But this is my main issue with nvidia old graphic card. So, first, is your fix work and are you in the same pattern issue as me ?
  3. That give me courage...:) I feel your pain. This hobby is not plug & play. BTW, having same issue. 2 lightgun, mame, m2 emulator , 2 screens and calibration is not working if i keep the second monitor up!
  4. Not sure if we talk about same thing though. But in my case...reverse the screen marquee make the picture look just as normal in sitting position. I built a pinball also and see that effect with another screen monitors. Like if company made those screen for a certain angle view. Which can make a certain sense. Usually when you use a screen...the screen is bellow your eye or centered. Rarely the reverse like we need with a marquee
  5. Hello, I just buy this same screen month ago, so satisfy so far. 2 things bring my attention to this thread. This part about 'seem washed out' and 'don't have the best angle'. I observe but not explain it at all if you reverse the screen , the angle is way better. Personally, i had to buy an another old but good video card cause i need to make a custom resolution and have a s-video output. Not easy to find
  6. Thanks JoeViking245, I read your post which is very valuable. That give me some direction and likely some terminology of what exist or not right now.
  7. Hello, I was to write a question in this forum to ask how far the ability to integrated high score in some page would be possible. Related to my general question first in this Now that I see this thread, may I ask you...What I understand from this add-on is the ability to have score 1 to 3 integrated into game detail, which is good. Now my question and please consider a have new skills on programmation (well, not in this technology, more database developer)...Could it be possible to have in a separate LB, BB field ? Where then we could add it anywhere in any page ? I'm pretty sure it was your first idea but probably more complicated and probably need LB, BB changes...is it ? Another related suggestion would be to a another field that have , let say, top 3 high score...another field, your high score... My final intention is to build a theme with a focus around High Score...your high score but also other hish score...A good way in my own opinion to make the play more challenging and fun.
  8. Thanks Retro808. Yes, my idea will be to knock each door, Y2Guru from 'Community Theme Creator for Bigbox' and write this in help & support. Now that I know it doesn't exists, I will not search for nothing.
  9. Hello everyone, I like to focus my theme on high score. My wish would be - Top 5 games with my high score in page 'TextFilterview' - My high score + top 3 high score from others in page 'TextGameView' - My High score + the high score from others in 'Wheelgameview' I only see so far a way to display the object detail description where you can see the high score but mixed with a bunch of other game detail... Probably all my request is not possible right now without complex development and programmation, which i do not have the skills. I'm using the excellent 'Community Theme Creator for Bigbox' right now. So, my question could be around how far this is possible in your own opinion ? Should I request it thru the idea suggestion support ? Or should I ask the person under the 'Community Theme Creator for Bigbox'', maybe it is just a question of wrapping xaml arround this ? Thanks...i will go back to my toy and configure my new acquisition for my cab ... 2xlight gun
  10. Oh! I see, make sense. I will then concentrate back to more basic stuff . I rebuild my software probably every 5 years...I'm in that now ... LB , BB is fantastic but i may say it is. up and running at 95% in 10 minutes...but the last 5 % will take you couple of days
  11. Interesting ... I follow this, Indeed it is not my main focus right now but this could become interesting, specifically for marquee video. But I think fanart is related to that, if i do not misleading things ...
  12. Arcade Cabinet Big Font View File Hello, Here my first Big Box Theme release, mainly focusing on Big font, big wheel, big everything. Typical use for Arcade Cabinet with CRT television. But should work on any type or size. I have 2 types of vertical view for wheel. One with image and the other with video selection. Image Vertical view for wheel are for sure more safe for slow CPU. In my case I run a Core Duo only and normal video from emumovie are working fine. The full theme video at the other hand are barely ok. Note : To use normal video rather theme video I just rename the folder of theme video to make sure BB don't find it and use normal video. Thanks to Thimolor, i started my theme base on LV-101 Submitter patrickfx Submitted 10/25/2020 Category Big Box Custom Themes

  14. Well, to your defense. I do the same brain logic. To OUR defense, many many many time a setup in BB has to be done in LB. All, playlist, emulator, platform and so on. So, first reflex is to go and look into LB for it. Cheers
  15. I have the same issue. In my case i went in LB, right-click the platform, use delete option. But it is worst, the folder structure are still there with all images. How can i get out of there. Sure i can delete manually but i tend to evitate manual intervention , sometimes, that hide more long time problem.... Any suggestion ?
