OK, here is my offering for Ultrastar Deluxe. This is a Karaoke style singing game much like Singstar. Yes I know this is a game and could/should be in the games section, but I use it as a standalone app and run it as a platform from the main menu. Now if we could only run a platform as an app directly from the top level menu in BigBox, I would be happy.
Here is a short clip of the video.
I also have a version that uses the Ultrastar Deluxe main menu music if you prefer that. That one is not synced to the music however.
You can find both versions here - https://mega.nz/#F!L5ZE2K5R!5VeE3wasVjTdbqoGp0mt9w
Two files included. One with sound and one without. Copy the one you want to the Launchbox videos folder and rename it to startup.mp4. Of course, you'll want to backup any existing startup videos first. Enjoy. Let me know if you find it useful. I also have a vid that says Arcade instead of BigBox if anyone is interested.
Here is a demo.
A decent list of Pinball tables comprised of Pinball FX2, Future Pinball, and Visual Pinball. I will update this if I ever add more tables to my collection.
A good start for your lightgun games collection. I will update this as I add more lightgun games to my collection.

This is an All Killer - No Filler style bat file for lightgun games. Simply place the bat file in you roms folder and double click to run. It will automatically create a lightgun folder and copy the lightgun roms to that folder. List was created by me Jay Thompson, and is probably missing some good games (Terminator 2 is missing for example) but it will get you started. Let me know if there are any games that obviously belong in here that I missed. The original lists exclude Lightgun Games and Trackball Games as part of the no filler mantra. A lot of folks have lightguns on their cabinet so I felt it in the best interest of the community to go ahead and make this.

I was trying to find a clear logo (wheel image) for a magazines platform I built but I realized there is not much to choose from out there. Not one to wait around for something that will likely never come, I went ahead and built a few images from scratch. Hopefully I made enough that anyone can download the zip and find one that works for them. These logos are a little different than the stuff most people are looking for so if you have found your way here, hopefully something here will work for you. I created several in an attempt to give you guys some choices.
Open the zip and find the image you want to use for your comics, e-reader or magazines platform and rename the image to match the name of your platform.
The image needs to go in Launchbox -> Images -> Platforms -> [platform name] -> Clear Logo. Delete the old logo (if present) and refresh your image cache in Big Box.

This zip contains a simple AutoHotKey executable and script that will help with loading Future Pinball tables.
The Problem: Future pinball requires the /open "Drive Letter:\full path\table_name.fpt" /play /exit commands to be specified individually for each table, otherwise the table will not load. Launchbox currently will not launch Future Pinball on its own without doing a little extra work in each table's settings. You have to manually enter this on each table which can be time consuming if you have a lot of tables to load.
Usage: Simply place the FP.exe file in your Future Pinball folder and point to it instead of the Future Pinball executable when setting up Future Pinball as an emulator in Launchbox. That's it.
Roll your own: If you are un-trusting and don't want to use the files in the zip (I don't blame you), you can download AutoHotKey and compile your own. The code is below. I've also included the non compiled FP.ahk so you can compile that if that suits you. That way you can open it in an editor to check the code before compiling.
Run, "Future Pinball.exe" /open "%1%" /play /exit
