Themes for the PC Engine.
Playlist below. Will upload a version of Ninja Ryūkenden tomorrow with game audio-only:
1. Ninja Ryūkenden
2. Ninja Ryūkenden (no soundtrack)
This is a slight modification from the original. Might get tweaked further. I'm also rendering one using the Japanese MD logo and will upload it later.
Platform Theme and Clear Logo for the Sega Mega Drive.
Playlist them for Castlevania. Big special thanks to @MetalVinnie for the track (performed by him) that was used in this theme! There are two versions: One with blood spatter and one without (I didn't really like it much myself, so did two versions).
1. No blood version
2. With blood version
Pixel art banner. Just put in the Banner folder in your Castlevania Playlist folder.
The second video I ever uploaded was for the MSU1 enhanced games since I had them added as a separate platform. Since I re-did the Hacks & Fan-Made video (which was my first), I decided to re-do this one too. I included an image of the Nintendo/Sony Play Station since that is what the MSU1 architecture was essentially designed to bring to fruition. The gameplay loop only includes games that have known patches/soundtracks/FMVs (according to this site, Donkey Kong Country received a patch recently too: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/09/donkey_kong_country_on_snes_gets_the_msu1_digital_audio_enhancement_treatment).
This next week I will have a playlist video up for Shmups.
Hope you all like it. A clear logo for your playlist/platform is also provided below.
This is technically a version 2 of the playlist theme I did originally, but I made a different clear logo for this one, so uploading it separately. Apologies for the larger size, but I wanted to use the full length of the song.
Themes for Nintendo 3DS.
I have a couple of The Legend of Zelda 3DS themes here:
1. Metroid: Samus Returns
Decided to do some platform theme videos for computer systems. First up is Windows, but I have interest in making themes for Steam, Origin and GOG services (for those of you that separate them) as well as MSX computers (will probably do a single one, but represent multiple generations of it). Unless there is a big interest in it, I probably won't make themes for the Uplay or Battle.net services. I will also include my clear logos for Windows and MSX; keep all Steam, Origin, GOG, Battle.net, Uplay under Windows in my setup.
Tried to incorporate elements of Windows 7 and 10 into the theme (not sure there is a big user base for 8): Windows 7 Start Orb and startup sound and the default Windows 10 wallpaper (first time Microsoft ever released a default wallpaper I didn't immediately change for something else; actually used it for the first year after upgrading to it). And, yes, I am team green, so I specifically looked for a rig with Nvidia's GPUs represented, so apologies to AMD users.... Actually it was the first high res image I found.
This was requested a while back by @angelobodetti, so I finally got around to finishing it.
I've included a clear logo and banner image (just put the akira image in the banner folder in Virtua Fighter playlist folder, if you want to use it).
This was a request from @BlueArrowUK. I don't normally get these finished so quickly, but this was so much fun that I just spent the last 4 hours doing nothing but working on it and it all came together pretty nice I think.
Hope you all enjoy it.
I've also included a clear logo that I mocked up as well as a banner image. I like using pixel art for my playlist banners. I'm going to update the existing playlist vids with the pixel art I use for those, too. Just put Marvin in the Banner folder after making the playlist (Images\Playlists\Looney Tunes Collection\Banner) if you want to use it.
Playlist theme for The Legend of Zelda series. Hope you all like it!
Here it is, as promised @e2zippo
Pixel art banner. Just put in the Banner folder in your Zelda Playlist folder.
Playlist theme for the Metroid series
Pixel art banner. Just put in the Banner folder in your Metroid Playlist folder.
Playlist theme for the Mega Man series. This is a "catch-all" theme since I put all Mega Man games into one category, so it is good for Mega Man X, as well.

Playlist theme for the Final Fantasy series.
@orac31 You can have it now
Pixel art banner. Just put in the Banner folder in your FF Playlist folder.
Theme for a Mario series playlist.
Similar to Mega Man, I put all Mario games into a single category; Mario Kart to Super Mario Bros. However, since some people might use separate playlists for things like Mario Kart, I put focus on featuring gameplay from the platformers in the series and didn't incorporate any art from non-platformers in the theme.
Hope you guys like it!

Took a little bit, but here is a theme for a Fighter Classics playlist, This theme was requested by @igotdvds and the clear logo was also provided by him.
Hope you enjoy!

Hey Guys & Gals - I decided to re-visit making a theme for a Hacks & Fan-Made platform/playlist category (I think this is technically 3.0 of the theme). This was the first video I made after first starting to use After Effects back in late January/early February. I'm still no pro, but I've been wanting to learn to use cameras and lights, so thought I'd try a little with this theme. Once I really get the hang of those things, I might try a really epic theme video with swooping camera angles and lots of 3D goodness, but that is probably a ways off.
In any case, hope you all enjoy the new theme! You can use the image used for the thread if you need a clear logo and, I've linked the original theme below, too. Hopefully I've made some progress in skill since doing it :

This is a Playlist theme intended to compliment @MetalVinnie's Playlist, logo and bezels he made recently. Hope you guys enjoy! Links to the Playlist/logo and Bezels are below:

Hope you all enjoy it! It was a toss up between the Juno Reactor's remix of Traci Lords's "Control" or Napalm Death's "Twist the Knife Slowly" from the original movie soundtrack. Decided on this one, but if someone would prefer the Napalm Death track, just let me know and I can upload a version with it, though I'd probably take out the gong sound effect and the two "Get over here" and "Fight" sound bites from that one.
@angelobodetti, Here it is!
Pixel art banner. Just put in the Banner folder in your MK Playlist folder.
Version 2 video below.
A Metal Slug playlist theme to compliment the playlists that @jchasa is putting together. The current XMLs are available here:
I also mocked up a couple of clear logos and those are availalbe here (just right-click the image and Save As):

This was requested by @BlueArrowUK. The filesize is a little bit large-ish (250MB), but it's also just over 4 minutes in length.
Hope you guys enjoy it!

This took a lot longer to finish than I anticipated, but here it is. I had to cut back on some of the ideas I had for this initially (largely due to lack of skill with the software), but I hope you guys like it. This was a special request from @heelsinc (sorry it took so long).
I was asked by someone commenting on my YouTube channel to do a playlist theme for the Shining Force series and I have one that I started for Virtua Fighter (by request) and one for Shmups, though I am primarily focusing on gameplay vids for PC and PS2 at the moment.
Moving on to the PlayStation. I'll be uploading themes for games in my collection (around 80ish). If you are looking for themes for any of the PlayStation Final Fantasy games, I have themes for all of those available here:
Just an FYI: I won't be uploading themes for Crash Bandicoot or most of the Mega Man games since @hevenik uploaded video themes for most all of these already. I have, however, modified the videos I'm using from his collections to be 16:9 (added a wallpaper with a blur to fill up the black space on the sides) and incorporated music from the game instead of sound effects of the game since this is what I prefer. If there is any interest in those, I will upload them here; just let me know. Otherwise, Hevenik has you covered for practically all Mega Man and Crash games. I will be doing a theme for Mega Man 8: Anniversary Collector's Edition since that is about the only thing not covered in his set.

This wraps up themes for PlayStation, aside from any special requests that may come along. I'll either be doing PlayStation 2 next or filling in the holes I have for Super Nintendo; haven't decided. When I do get to Super Nintendo, those themes will be at 1440x1080 so they have a 4:3 aspect ratio since the majority of the themes I already have for that system are 4:3 (will make versions of the Final Fantasy SNES themes to match this too sine the ones I made before are 16:9).
I recently decided to try out PlayStation Now (since there is a free trial) and added it to my Launchbox/BigBox setup. This video is really just a placeholder for now. I haven't had much time to devote to larger video projects lately with work and looking for a new place/preparing to move, etc (not to mention getting pretty hooked on Final Fantasy XII: The Zodiac Age the last couple of weeks - only a couple Trophies left!). I feel bad since I have started a couple other Playlist Themes for Wrestling and one for a Virtua Fighter Collection, but haven't been able to devote the time I would need to invest to getting them finished. I slapped this together for PlayStation Now (really wish you could add and launch applications from the top level, rather having to have them nested into a category, but alas). There is no gameplay featured or anything, but when I get more time I will flesh it out, so just consider it a hold over for now. I've also included what I am using for the Clear Logo, Box Front/Banner and Fanart - Background. Just click the images beneath the video and Save As.
Fanart - Background
