  1. I don't suppose you have these shared somewhere do you? I'd love to get my hands on those!
  2. Hey these are pretty cool. If you saved any of the Marquees you created by themselves and want to share, I'll give you credit, and roll them into the next release of Jays Arcade Platform Marquees.
  3. Thank you. I was wondering if I was chasing my own tail trying to figure this out. If he gets around to it, that's a bonus.
  4. Thanks. Yeah I see the views and get that. Just not sure where these pop ups play into any of those views. I'm guessing these are not themable at all. They all look pretty much the same in every theme I've seen them in. I don't really want to theme these pop-ups at all to be honest. I just wish there was a way they would scale properly on vertical oriented monitors. I went through a few themes to see if any of the pop-ups were themed. Not a single one I looked at were themed, so I guess I've answered my own question and these are not themable at this point. You can see the Vertigo theme h
  5. Curious about these pop up windows in BigBox. Are these some how hard coded into BigBox or are they themable too? I've built my theme with the Community Theme Builder and there is no way to edit these with that tool that I can tell. I've messed around with the Visual Studio program a bit to see if I can find these views to edit but I'm pretty lost. I've also messed with scaling and different resolutions up to 4k and the look of these pop-up windows never seem to change with any of that. As you can see from the image, these don't look so hot in a vertical theme. If someone could poin
  6. So something I noticed after I posted this last night. The Alt f4 method works to close FX3 with that file I built, but when I open a different table, FX3 asks if I want to re-open the one I had previously closed. It doesn't do this if I close tables the "correct way". Honestly, I love getting frustrated and trying to solve stuff like this, but for as little as I play FX3, its just not worth the trouble for me. I think I'll stick to going through the menu to close. I might come around to revisit this though.... I'm a glutton for punishment, LOL.
  7. So.... coming back around to this. I tried and tried to get the launchbox built in ahk to work and I couldn't get anywhere with it. I ended up building the external ahk and compiling that. Strange how the internal ahk works for some people sometimes and not for others.
  8. Jays Arcade Alternate Platform Marquees View File These are some alternate marquees I made for platforms. These were created with the Vertical Aspirations theme in mind, but they can be used anywhere a generic platform marquee is needed. I have included the template and some instructions (Gimp). If you find yourself creating more to fill in any that I've missed (and I've missed plenty I'm sure), please share them in the comments and I will add them to the archive. Most of these were created with the White Trim - Platform Clear Logo Set by @RetroNi. A very g

  12. Yeah maybe something like that would work. Here is where my problem started. Originally, the marquee area just used the clear logo (except for MAME games). The issue was someone asked if they could have a marquee image instead of the clear logo because the clear logo was already shown below on the wheel. They didn't like the look and I thought it was a good request. The mame games always used a marquee that was different than the clear logo. I had a pretty full set of marquees for mame so I never saw any problems when testing. It was only when I added marquee support for the other systems
  13. Thanks. Hopefully adding marquee image priorities to Launchbox can get some traction.
  14. Is there something I'm missing about how image priorities work? The theme I've built (Vertical Aspirations) uses marquee images for each game. I'd like to not show anything at all in the marquee area if there are no marquee images in the arcade - marquee images folders for each system. Unfortunately, in testing I'm seeing that even though there are no images in that folder, and marquees are not selected in any of the image priorities categories, I'm still seeing other art from the box front image priorities category show up where the marquee image would be. The only way I've found to suppress
  15. About the latest update to the theme... I found out last night that I missed implementing the new marquee stuff I was doing to a few of the views. I'll try to put out an update tonight or tomorrow. I'm also looking into creating some custom platform banners to specifically fit in the marquee area of this theme. If anyone knows of some marquee suitable platform banner images that will fit in the marquee area without using stretch fill (or very little stretch), I would love to know where I could find them. The marquee area is roughly 1080 x 350.
