    Post Your Overlays!

    Hi! 😄 I figured we needed a thread for posting user created overlays, like the one over at Libretro Forums. I hope the LB community can use this thread to show off their new overlays! For newcomers; Retroarch allows you to overlay the emulated video output with an image. This is useful if you want to maintain the original aspect ratio of the game's original design. The most beneficial result would be filling the fugly bars on either side of the image with something nice and visually pleasing (nostalgic). @orionsangel has an excellent tutorial for setting up custom overlays in Retroarch: *****Notes for Posting & Usage***** *Please try to list the rendering resolution of the core/emulator, along with the aspect ratio of your overlay. *As a courtesy, please get permission and/or give credit to the original content creators if you re-post, or re-upload elsewhere on the www.

    Those video files were beastly! Thanks for slimming them down. Is VLC the preferred big ox media player now?

    I don't see the Plugin version listed in the downloads, was that removed? Is there any way to get the background videos to rotate randomly?

    How do you get the nice 1:1 title image tiles you use in the image previews? Did you crop these yourself?
  10. Not necessarily. The pause functionality could be added, than the actual keys required by the emulator could be a separate input section of that platforms details in Launchbox. That way the responsibility to enter the correct state and save keys is on the user, if they want that functionality.
  11. Ah, this makes sense. Thanks for the explanation! So the pause menu would not be part of an overlay, but a separate UI element that could be "switched" (alt-tabbed) to on a button press?
  12. I've used RocketLauncher for a long time and can attest any performance degradation brought by the overly is negligible and not noticeable (IMO). Between NVIDIAs' shadowplay, steams' BPM, & Origins' In-game overlay, chances are you have been playing pc games in non-exclusive full screen mode. As @Lordmonkus stated on the first page: Here is my custom fade screen with loading animation and RocketLauncher pause screen features as they are:
  13. I use rocketlauncher for saves & loads on the pause screen, it is clunky 😝.\\ I don't see why an AHK, xpadder, or joy2key plugin can't be made to send the keypresses just like RL does
  14. A Pause/Fade feature would be awesome in Launchbox! I have been thinking the last few weeks about submitting a feature request just for this. I have a few suggestions, first your questions: How important is it to you for the startup screen to fade into the game? Is it worth the performance sacrifice to you while playing the game? Less important than other features How important is it to you to use bezels? Are they worth the performance sacrifice to you? This is already something that works fine in MAME & Retroarch, not a feature I'm interested in LB What features are you most looking for with startup screens? The ability to theme these screens is important; visually cohesive with my theme What features are you most looking for with pause screens? Ability to exit Load and save multiple states View PDFs Here are some suggestions for the pause menu I've been thinking of: MusicBox integration - I don't own a music box license, but I would happily pay $20-$30 for music box integration into the pause menu. The ability to create and play custom soundtracks while playing games would be a key feature for me that would make me want to reinvest $$ into launchbox Play videos - Video player integrated, maybe even YouToube API plugin for searches? Retro-achievements integration - Retroarch hasn't figured out how to display the graphical toasts for retro-achievements, I am not sure how difficult this would be, but definitely a cool feature!
