  1. #5 has been on my wish list for years. JoeViking245 made an excellent program to support loading an app from the top level wheel, but it would be awesome to have this done natively so we didn't have to run his app after every theme update. Some solid looking things you guys want to tackle. Looking forward to seeing the results of the poll and the subsequent updates.
  2. The Community Theme Creator is an amazing tool. Unfortunately, as of this time, there is no documentation. There are however, several excellent videos by y2guru and Faeran on the subject. I have recently begun saving bookmarks and other tips from the videos to use as a reference if I ever need to remember how to do something in the Theme Creator. The videos can be pretty long so hopefully this will be helpful for anyone looking for specific info. Some of these notes refer to the upcoming 1.0.9.8 version of the Theme Creator and may not work with the current public version. These b
  3. Always good to have more vertical themes. Also glad to see you are into virtual pinball!
  4. made it easier to preview your vertical based themes

      Thank you! I'll try to check it out this weekend. Busy, busy here. Need more time for hobbies and less time working!

      That's great news. Thank you!

  5. I'd like to add that there is a Platform video available for Pico-8 as well by @eli517 . Check it out here.
  6. Version 1.0.0

    53 downloads

    Included in the download: You can choose either the 1920x1080 set or a 1080x1080 cropped set depending on which one works better for you. Each set contains 75 short gameplay videos from a set of games I hand selected from the featured cartridges list on the Pico-8 site. Some of the games are short (Little Dragon Adventure), some are kind of quirky (Feed the Ducks), some are interesting re-creations, (Super Mario Bros, Pico Man, Pico Tetris), but all are fun. I added a clear logo and a marquee image in the download. I've also included my Pico-8 xml file. You can drop the xml into the \Launchbox

  8. This frontend has 4 screens going at once.
  9. That's not entirely true, the frontend does displays that stuff - when scrolling through the games, not the pinball app. As for those real LED DMDs, the other guys frontends display to those as well (while in the frontend), not the Pinball app or LED Blinky. We Use LED Blinky for the buttons and DOF for all the environmental effects like the blinky buttons, strobes, fans, LED matrixes, knockers, etc. A lot of guys use monitors for their DMD, myself included. I built a mini cab a few years ago that has a 7 inch monitor for the DMD. The frontend displays videos recorded from gameplay in t
  10. Multiple monitor support would be welcome for anyone that would like to have (and I hope I'm not jinxing it again by saying it), better pinball support. Playfield, backglass, DMD, and topper video monitors are pretty standard in the Virtual Pinball community these days. Your typical Bigbox users probably don't care about it (too niche), but Pinball enthusiasts would love to be able to use it. Bigbox as it is, is so close to being a great frontend for pinball (database issues aside). It's just missing a couple things. Just my 2 cents.
  11. I don't suppose you have these shared somewhere do you? I'd love to get my hands on those!
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. 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
  15. 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
