  1. @mcfilmmakers if I forget to unblock the zip file then that is normally the result, so I would try that.
  2. Great theme and thank you for sharing the theme creator project files.
  3. @Retro808 They should be up there now mate.
  4. @Noromu79 I've uploaded the theme creator project files so you can now make all your custom images. @pmf5389 I put out the version with the quicker videos.
  5. Yes it is, I will upload the new theme with the quicker timings and also the Theme Creator Project file.
  6. @pmf5389 I can make the animation faster, currently I have it set at 3 seconds for the effects to start but I could change that down to 1 second and see if that still looks ok. I take it your using the Platform Wheel View and not the Text List View. Edit: I just changed this to see how it runs and it is much better so thanks for the feedback, I will put it in on the next update of the theme.
  7. @Retro808 thanks, yes I'll add the theme creator files to the download, I just have to wait for the new version of the theme creator to be released as its using some of the new features @y2guru had put in.
  8. Thanks @Noromu79 Yes what I will do is upload the Community Theme Creator files with the next update and then you can use it to create all your own logos that way.
  9. Chrome Metal View File INTRODUCTION No real introduction, I was trying out the new custom images in the theme creator and came up with this to test them out. What I have done is supply a custom image for every platform in the LaunchBox Database to date. It also relies on fanart as the main background but there is a fallback image for when there isn't any. Ideally I would like to be able to have 5 or 6 fallback images that randomly get used in the future.... @y2guru Hope you enjoy it _____________________________ THE MAIN THING TO DO AFTER INSTALLING IT... REFRESH THE IMAGE CACHE INSTALLATION **Download the zip file and unblock it (right click the zip file, goto "Properties" then at the bottom put a tick in the "Unblock" box, hit ok when done) then extract the folder to --\Launchbox\Themes\ oh and REFRESH THE IMAGE CACHE Also there are some sound samples I found that give it that Clicky feel, I recommend downloaded them aswell. As always thanks go to @y2guru for the amazing COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox. Submitter Rincewind Submitted 07/08/2020 Category Big Box Custom Themes

  11. Chrome Metal View File This is a few sound samples I found to go along with the Chrome Metal theme. To use these simply download and unzip the file, and place that folder into your "LaunchBox/Sounds" folder. Then fire up BigBox and go into the "Options" select "Sound" and change the "Sound Pack" to "Chrome Metal Sounds". Submitter Rincewind Submitted 07/08/2020 Category Big Box Sound Packs

  13. @syncy I've not tested this but I found the code snippet from @faeran in this thread some where. You would just need to create a "Default" folder within a "Images" folder. <Image x:Name="CartImage" Grid.Row="1" Grid.Column="1" Source="{Binding SelectedGame.CartFrontImagePath, FallbackValue='pack://siteoforigin:,,,/StartupThemes/[THEME-NAME-HERE]/Images/Default/Nintendo 64.png', TargetNullValue='pack://siteoforigin:,,,/StartupThemes/[THEME-NAME-HERE]/Images/Default/Nintendo 64.png'}" VerticalAlignment="Center" HorizontalAlignment="Center" RenderOptions.BitmapScalingMode="HighQuality" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5"> <Image.RenderTransform> <TransformGroup> <ScaleTransform ScaleX=".63" ScaleY=".63"/> <RotateTransform Angle="0" /> <TranslateTransform X="0"/> <TranslateTransform Y="-200"/> </TransformGroup> </Image.RenderTransform> <Image.Effect> <DropShadowEffect BlurRadius="10" Direction="-90" RenderingBias="Quality" ShadowDepth="1" /> </Image.Effect> </Image>
  14. @syncy these are really looking cool. Do you use a default Cart or CD image if non are found?
  15. Great new feature, I didn't even know it was in LaunchBox till I watched your video. Roll on two weeks time
