  1. Are you using the beta version by @faeran? If so, he no longer uses the same data as me for these fields. Try to update your games metadata.
  2. Please read the fist text part here. Faeran is totally rewriting the theme. Try the beta version (see link above). Yes, missing for now, but planned
  3. Update +2 platform video ! Community update Daphne -by- @modjoo ScummVM -by- @modjoo @faeran : Here is new color code : <SolidColorBrush x:Key="Daphne" Color="#ffbd1f"/> <SolidColorBrush x:Key="ScummVM" Color="#f09514"/>
  4. Hi @Platinum and thx for your feedback. =) About your feedback: 1 - Normally, this is not an empty area. You must have the platform name in text. But yes, I have in mind to modify this "wheel" screen. I will soon release a "Banner Set" based on my videos to help me 2 - This empty space aims to leave room for the very long game title and allow breathing. But anyway, this "GamesTextList" view is going to be totally change. You will find a preview of the future view here. And on the theme, @faeran kindly took over the lead on development. It will totally rewrite the code.
  5. Yes, I'll add them today (French time zone) =) EDIT: @Mapsen ok done
  6. I don't have control over the new color management plugin, but it looks like a problem between: - ARCADE (platform) - purple - ARCADE (category) - blue Here too, the theme is being rewritten by @faeran. Normally, this is not on code side that we regulate this. Try here, in LaunchBox settings : Raise the "screenshot - Gameplay" to the top
  7. Thx @soqueroeu =) My last video drop is only made by me. Otherwise, I would specified the credits. About detail level : It's very platform dependent. For example smartphones: no cartridge, no iconic gaming accessory. The same goes for very old computers that have little or no specific gaming accessories. I have other constraint to always keep in mind. For example, everything must stay in a central square to be used in 4:3 or as a banner set. So no pixel other than flat color on the sides. etc ... I also try to keep a fake sort of scale. At least by category. That's why some platform seems small and lost in space. All these videos are to be placed in a theme context. They are rarely used alone in fullscreen. But if I forgot an iconic accessory, please tell me which one. I can update my videos =) (the goal remains to cover ALL the platforms, not to keep repeating the same ones)
  8. UPDATE !!! +7 Platform Video ! ? And here the updated theme color file : COLORFUL_Styles.xaml (place here : LaunchBox\Themes\Colorful - Light\Views\Styles ) Android Apple II Apple Macintosh Apple iOS NEC PC-Engine NEC PC-Engine CD SHARP X1

  10. @modjoo Nice !!! You can send me scummVM and Daphne to me. In archive like my ressource one, with sources. I'll put all this on right place with your credit ! =)
  11. I'm not a good sound designer ^^' But I can try ! Yes, I have plan to release in 4K. I need to find uHD game footage for this !
  12. COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video View File # WHAT IS IT ? COLORFUL is a complete and coherent high quality graphic set, around a unique design. Made with love in France. I hope you like it ! ? Here are planned development axes: COLORFUL Theme : The main hub, a unique interface for BigBox. COLORFUL Platform Video : Complete 4K video set, with a unique design. COLORFUL Source : To involve the community in the platform video creation. COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : custom video to match the general design. (new) COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon) COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon) # HERE IS COLORFUL BIGBOX STARTUP VIDEO: A video specially created to match the design of the Colorful theme, to cover all the visual aspects of BigBox. For now, only 1 video. More to come # I NEED YOUR HELP : PATREON ? I will make a first batch of 65 systems, according to my personal use. But we are far from covering any game system! If the community doesnt take over the creation, 2 choices: the project stops /or/ I finish it. Problem, creating these videos takes a loooooot of time. And I have to deal with a full-time CGI artist job and 2 young kids. So I opened a Patreon page that could allow me to dedicate days on my work time to continue creating video. I'm not trying to get rich, but like everyone else, I cant spend 1 day/week working for free! I hope you understand. If the project interests you: Here is my Patreon page. # IN DETAIL ? Obviously, Colorful is a direct legacy of my previous video set "Nostalgia". But improved on all aspects: fullHD video (1920x1080px) H264 @60 fps H264 duration : 1min05 # A PREVIEW ? (soon) # OK, HOW TO DOWNLOAD ? Right here, with the download button at the top right Place video file in the LaunchBox folder under /Videos/Startup/ # SPECIAL THANKS : @Jason Carr for his hard work on LaunchBox/BigBox! @faeran for his hard work on Colorful Theme !!

  14. Thx for your feedback and your color pick =) Next, when I release new video, I'll give a good hex code to Faeran. For the color by platform, @faeran will migrate the entire theme to the Community Theme Creator. Color management will change and be integrated if I understand correctly. But for now, I have the same problem as you, with "Nintendo NES" for example. Here is my last hex per platform list : Ao.Bigbox.Themer.v3_9_7a-Colors.dll.txt
  15. @xmas Faeran will work on the theme now. The code will totaly change and it will be based on the Community Theme Creator. On my old version, it's a pain in the ass. It's at the top of the XAML file. The "Storyboard" part. Each element is animated from its side. You change a value: you have to readapter everything =/
  16. The problem with colors in video is that it changes all the time. using the eyedropper in Photoshop does not always work well. We're close, but it's not perfect. What I do in these cases: Launch BigBox and launch the desired platform. Press "print screen" key on my keyboard. Open Photoshop > Ctrt+N > Ctrl+V Here, use the eyedropper tool to get the Hex code yes. Boring ... but it's works ! Because between Photoshop edit, After Effect export, codec and VLC player, all color change a little ...
  17. UPDATE !! v.1.1 Updating the color system by @faeran Now the colors should work with the latest version of BigBox. I didn't do anything here. ALL the credit goes to @faeran and @Jason Carr !!!!
  18. A big thank you to @faeran and @Jason Carr for their help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was blocked by an obsolete plugin that I had not developed. (and that I am quite incapable of developing) Remember that I am a graphic designer, not a coder. I am so damn bad and a very slow developer. Fortunately, our 2 Superman have integrated color management by platform into BigBox !!! If that's not incredible!!!!! An updated version to correct this problem will soon be rolled out to regular channels. Thank you for your patience ! Some of you know, I have had a few health problems over the past few months. From September, I will resume a good cruising speed and promise you some nice updates. Mostly, I will focus on the videos. This branch of the project has not moved forward for too long.
