  1. Play Box 2 View File This is a continuation of Play Box, A modern look of Xbox One & Sony Playstation 4 user interfaces with nostalgic retro views of classic games. Included in my theme is alternative control layouts for Microsoft XBOX One & Sony Playstation 4. There are 3x Platform views & 11x Game views to choose from all with menu controls & all the video border views from the last theme. Important note**If the artwork & videoborder views do not display properly for a platform on your system, there will most likely be naming conflicts between your platforms & files in my theme. To fix this issue, you must locate these files in the background & videoborder folders of my Play Box theme then change the names to your actual platforms name. Installation Unzip the Play Box folder to your Launchbox /Themes directory. Thanks to Nosh for Banners which i have slightly edited to scale to my theme LaunchBox_Big_Box_2019-09-29_21-22-42.mp4 Submitter daz Submitted 09/29/2019 Category Big Box Custom Themes

    Hi thanks for using my theme. I’m sorry but I don’t understand what you mean by magnification effect, do you mean the size of selected item in the horizontal wheel.

    Not sure, have you tried changing the images of thumbnails from the home screen. Keep pressing the change image button/key until it shows image of thumbnails.

    Thanks very much. I wanted to achieve the comfort of gaming at a living room TV like a games console gamer but with the diversity of LaunchBox & the power & flexibility of a PC.
  7. Play Box View File ****** NOTE THIS THEME IS BUILT FOR STEAM STYLE BANNERS FOR THE FLOWCONTROL WHEEL. ********* This is my one & only theme called Play Box that started off as a personal project to what i desired which was a modern look of the sony playstation 4 & Microsoft xbox one consoles user interfaces with nostalgic retro views of classic games. This theme is highly customisasble & has been several months of hard but enjoyable work, I have tested at 1920 x 1080p screen resolution & all seems fine so any positive feedback would be gratefull. Included in my theme is a customisable Username with Avatar picture that you can edit to use your own picture & therefor the picture needs to be 62px x 62px in size. To change the names you can just select the canvas, click & drag a rectangle shape over the names & delete. Then create a new Text & input your own names. This can be done with any editing tool such as Paint 3D in Windows 10, Or you can use the 10 other Presets that i have included. As for Menu control layouts i have created them mostly for Microsoft XBOX One but i have also included Sony Playstation 4 control layouts as an alternative. There are 3x Platform views & 11x Game views to choose from all with menu controls. I have sourced all fan art backgrounds through google & with them i have created over 350 VideoBorders for modern & classic systems. Important note**If the Background & VideoBorder views do not display properly for a platform on your system, there will most likely be naming conflicts between your platforms & files in my theme. To fix this issue, you must locate these files in the Background & VideoBorder folders of my Play Box theme then change the names to your actual platforms name. Installation Unzip the Play Box folder to your Launchbox /Themes directory. Setting up Steam Banners Make sure you set Platform & Game images as Steam Banners within the game options in Launchbox. Then for them to be used in the theme correctly set the priority of the boxes view to prioritise Steam Banners first - if you ever want to revert this it is then simply a case of lowering the priority of the steam banners in the boxes list rather than having to remove or reorganise images. To do this open Launchbox and go to Tools --> Options and in the window that appear select Box Front Properties in the Images section and use the Up button to move the Steam Banners to the top of the list. Big thanks to Jason Carr, CriticalCid & RetroHumanoid for there Unified themes which has inspired me to create my videoborder views. and a thanks to Nosh for Banners which i have slightly edited to scale to my theme A special thanks to Grilla for his Game controller plugin which has enabled me to show the status & battery progress of my Game controllers.

  13. A really great feature to be added to Big Box themes would be a Launchbox Big Box Community page/section, like a web page detailing videos, news & images all relating to launchbox. I was recently browsing through my Xbox one & some steam games on my PC & thought Big Box themes would benefit from a Launchbox Hub where people from the Launchbox community could share pics & videos or latest gaming news all from Big Box itself.
  14. Great looking theme shro2016. Looks great on a big screen TV. Would you be able to add Grila's custom big box controls plugin to your themes for date & time & controller battery status as I have no experience with visual studio.
  15. Hi, This theme is great & I use it daily hooked up to my big TV. I wanted to have the date & time & controller battery status displayed in this theme which would have made it complete for me so I tried to edit your theme with visual studio to add grila's big box controls plugin but have no experience with visual studio & don't know where to start. Would you please add grila's plugin to this theme if you get chance.
