    Hi Grila, Love this feature in Big Box. I would like to add this plugin to the games views in my Theme Play Box so could you please upload instructions of the string/code that I need to input. Also if you ever get time would it be possible to update the Controls Plugin as the game controller battery status needs a battery bar icon behind the battery level indicators so that it is easier to see when you have artwork images in the background. Keep up the good work.

    Play Box 3

    Thanks for your interest in my theme jayjay. In regards to the video position i could move this however I have been in contact with jason & he has informed me that the default platformwheel2filtersview was not built for the purpose of recent & favourites shortcuts. I have tried to find a workaround for this but without success. I will therefore be redesigning the platformwheel2filtersview. sorry to everyone who downloaded play box 3 for that view file as I thought it was a bug in my LaunchBox version & did not test in other versions earlier.

    Hi The theme is so large because of all the content I have included. It is mostly because of all the videoborder files I have created for the WheelGamesView .

    Thanks bundangdon for amending the text list view as I was rushing to get the updates uploaded & forgot to put that in there.

    In response to the question by davbedwards, 1st & 2nd images are PlatformWhee3lFiltersView & PlatformWheel4FiltersView, 3rd image is HorizontalWheel2GamesView, 4th image is TextGamesView, 5th image is HorizontalWheel1GamesView, 6th image is HorizontalWheel3GamesView but I have now changed this to Steam Banners only, 7th image is WallGamesView & the final image is WheelGamesView. As for Steam Banner Images the ones supplied in my theme I created myself. there may be certain sites that provide non steam banner images.

    Thanks for the feedback, I’m very grateful as I’m trying to create a theme as modern as possible. My only limitations is the CoverFlow wheel in the platform & games views as I would like to be able to navigate vertically & horizontally like you can in the favourites & recently played boxes/banners. I will add a cover art & video for you in the games text view & look at the wheel in the games wheel view also as soon as I get time as I’m working on another similar theme. Stay tuned for updates.

    No problem, I previously thought about doing a view for steam banners in my next theme I’m working on so I will have a look at what I can do.
  7. Play Box 3 View File Happy New Year 2020 to all NOTE THIS THEME IS BUILT FOR STEAM STYLE BANNERS FOR THE FAVOURITES & RECENTLY PLAYED BOX IMAGES. This is Play Box 3, A continuation of Play Box 2. I have redesigned this theme for a more modern look of Steam Big Picture Mode or TV Media Center Graphical User Interfaces. All games & apps that have been added as your favourite & recently played now have a Steam Banner style shortcut on the Home Screen for quick access. Platform & Games views now have faded backgrounds for artwork. Included in my theme is alternative control layouts for Microsoft XBOX One & Sony Playstation 4 & a collection of steam Banners for games of various platforms. There are 2x Platform views & 6x Game views to choose from all with menu controls, All the videoborder views from my previous Play Box Themes are there. 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 3 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 big thanks to BlazingRyuu for his Device Icons which i have slightly edited to scale to my theme. Demo.mp4 Submitter daz Submitted 01/01/2020 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.
