  1. Thanks...The theme was built around full screen video in Platform view,but,not built for the random game videos. I made the Refried Platform videos specifically to fit into this theme,and they can be found in the download section,or follow the link at the bottom of the Refried theme description. These videos match the look of the Game Selection artwork,and if I understand your request correctly,should give you the tidy look you are going for. Also...Hi Everyone!
  2. Not all of them were uploaded to Launchbox...that is probably one that wasn't
  3. Alright...so I am settled in now,and ready to get back to doing stuff...so I will be doing a live stream on my youtube channel on the weekend. Now the bad news...the drive I had all of the current work I was doing for the startup screens,has died...so I have to start over on them. The worst part was that I was literally a few weeks away from replacing it with a brand new drive before it decided to give up finally. I lost some other pretty major stuff I was working on as well...which sucks...really bad...but,it is what it is. I will update on the progress of the startup screens soon.
  4. Computer Room coming along nicely .... And some pics of the new game room as well...
  5. You are correct. When I first made those,there was no automatic playlist generator,and the genre category was something I had/have on my cabinet,with games from every platform in each genre.They are not platform specific. As far as the videos,I currently use the genre videos I have out atm,because when I thought about changing to the refried style,I thought about how I would have to change the videos for Collections,Developers,etc. ....and remaking over 300 videos is just not something I have time to do atm...but,who knows about later down the line,I may get the itch.
  6. Beautiful theme...nice work sir ?
  7. The stretched panoramic picture makes it look bigger than it is...it's only a 32"...and I am replacing the marquee monitor,which is empty in that pic,with a 29" ultrawide
  8. Still have a bit to go,but,the move is just about finished...we have some small things to bring over still,and the landlord was nice enough to give us till the end of the month to move and clean the old place. We are moving from one of his buildings,to another one of his buildings,so he doesn't mind. I will attach some pics of the progress,and you can see what a mess it still is,lol.
  9. If you are using the addon,you don't change the name of the artwork...it is hard referenced by the name I gave it in the view xaml files...change the name of the view files.
  10. How it works now,is how I always intended it to work. My cabinet is currently unhooked,but,I believe I did leave a view in all of the playlist addons that showed platform art for the selected game,instead of the playlist artwork. "All Games" does this because I did not make specific artwork for that playlist.
  11. Put your comment in the description...thanks for the breakdown of installation
  12. I'll fix that,and probably others too,next update...thanks for notifying me My arcade is down for the next couple weeks again...I'll look into it when it is back up and running,thanks
  13. You can just delete the code below from the view you don't want discs/carts <!-- DISC IMAGE --> <Image x:Name="DiscImage" Grid.Column="4" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" Grid.Row="3" Grid.RowSpan="3" Source="{Binding Path=ActiveGame.CartFrontImagePath}" Opacity="100" Panel.ZIndex="12" Margin="-250,20,175,70" Stretch="Uniform" VerticalAlignment="Center" HorizontalAlignment="Left" RenderOptions.BitmapScalingMode="HighQuality" RenderTransformOrigin="0.5,0.5"> <Image.RenderTransform> <TransformGroup> <ScaleTransform/> <RotateTransform /> <TranslateTransform X="4000"/> </TransformGroup> </Image.RenderTransform> </Image>
  14. If you are using the Default theme,and are not using the Queso addon,then you should rename the videoborder and background to match your platforms name. If you are using the Default theme,and you are using the Queso addon,then you only change the name of the background to match your platform...afterwards you should change the custom view xaml filenames to match your platform name...no other artwork should be changed,because the names of the videoborders in the arcade pack are hard referenced in the custom view xaml's. In a future update,all art will be hard referenced from the addons...but,for now,with the addon,you still have to check the backgrounds platform name
  15. They are there...but,they are named PC Games. This was actually a mistake,and there are a few other systems I have to fix up like that as well. On my cabinet I call it PC Games,but,when I released it,I figured Windows was a better name since there are alot of different categories of PC Games. Refried 2.0 is the version from my cabinet.To remedy this easily,you can go into each custom view folder in the themes "Views" folder and change the name of all the PC Games xaml's to Windows.
  16. Whiting,Indiana...a peaceful little town....30 minutes out from South Side Chicago where I lived the first 30 or so years of my life
  17. This is odd,because in the new version of the default theme,there is artwork for "Sony Playstation Portable" and "Sony PSP" But,in the old version of the theme,this is not the case...it only had "Sony Playstation Portable" And in the Queso Addon,it really doesn't matter what the artwork is called,as long as the custom view file for that platform,references it by the correct name,which out-of-the-box, it does... And as long as the view file is named after the users platform name correctly,which is the first place a user should look if artwork doesn't show correctly. I think you may have possibly lost something in the installation,and you are using the old version of Refried,but,merged the queso addon into it.I know you said it was a fresh install,but,all the evidence points to the possibility of PEBCAK...if not,then I will eat my shoe.Or possibly the drastic change of the Refried themes structure,while still retaining the same name of the theme,may have caused an issue with LaunchBox itself. What I would do is start with a fresh download of Refried 2.0 and Queso Fresco. Change Big Box to a different theme in the options menu. Disable "Remember Separate View for each Platform" Browse through that different theme,change views on a platform Shut down big box and remove anything related to refried from your themes folder. Place the new version of Refried and merge the addon into it. Then start big box and see if that solves anything. Also,let me know if the ps3-ps4 thing persists after this and I will look into it further. I don't have those on my cabinet,but,I can try to figure out what is going on.Just an fyi on this though,I did change the name of the custom "Nintendo Entertainment System" wheelgamesview xaml to "nintendo entertainment system", and it made no difference. The addon border showed just fine,and capitalization doesn't seem to matter. " I went and renamed all PS references with uppercase (i.e., Sony PlayStation) so everything was same." I am curious about what files you had to rename in this process though. The ghost folders might be part of the first problem,and probably has something to do with the "Remember Separate Views" option.Hopefully it gets sorted out with the above method.
  18. Thanks for the heads up...not sure how that happened. Luckily it's not a platform that most people have,but, next update I will straighten it out
  19. literally one of the first lines in the themes description,on the download page.... *This replaces the old version of Refried entirely. DO NOT merge this new version with the old one.
  20. straight from the download page description ... Important note**If you install this theme,and the artwork does not display properly for a platform on your system,then more than likely it is a naming conflict between your platform and the files in the theme. To fix this issue,you must locate these files and change the name to your actual platforms name: 1.Images/Theme/Background/(name of your platform that is mislabeled) 2.Images/Theme/VideoBorder/(name of your platform that is mislabeled) If you install the Queso Fresco addon as well,then you must also rename the custom view xaml files to your platform name.
  21. You would probably have luck looking up HyperPi PC videos...or maybe the work done by @harryoke would fit the style you are looking for
