  1. Refried Theme Platform Logo Set

    A set of Logos, to match perfectly with my Refried theme. A special Thank you to @RetroNi for allowing me to use his white bordered logo set,with a few changes,for the creation of the Platform Logos in this set...As well as @CriticalCid for giving me the unspoken inspiration to even start this project in the first place!
    The Logos are seperated to download by category..including each playlist covered in the theme.
     
    Inside of the Unified Refried theme there is a "Images" folder. Inside you need to create a folder labelled "Platforms." Inside you will need to create another folder called "Clear Logo." Inside the Clear Logo folder is where you paste the set. 
    Launchbox/Themes/Unified Refried/Images/Platforms /Clear Logo
    After making the change, be sure to refresh platform wheel images located in options (Image Cache).
     
    You can find the theme here....
    You can find the matching video set here...

  2. Unified Refried 2.0

    What's different in 2.0?
    *This replaces the old version of Refried entirely. DO NOT merge this new version with the old one.
    *All platform addon themes from the first version of Refried have been merged into one single addon called "Queso Fresco" (because it tastes great on top of refried beans...that's why). Therefore all of those older addon themes are no longer needed.
    *Requires Launchbox 9.4 or above to function properly
    *Revised Install instructions (please read them below if you are just starting out with the theme)
    *Added custom controller icons for play modes in the game description on some systems...this will get finished in the future
    *More great additions made by Ghostlines to the theme
    *Added the fullscreen video view to all platforms (view 4)
    *Improved the artwork slightly for the Big Box options menus
    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.
    I set out to make an alternate version to the beautiful Unified theme,with modifications here and there,yet,as I worked on it more and more,I started to go a different direction slightly...and thus Refried was born. This theme is built to focus on artwork,and showcase each system in bright colorful high definition artwork. I have drawn all new original arcade cabinets,and designed custom borders for each platform,which set each system apart from each other,while maintaining a unified appearance across the board.
    The main difference between this,and many other themes that are out there...are the video borders. When using the Default theme,all video borders are the same size across the entire theme...but,when using the addons,the video borders will then fit the system properly...so that the video for Game Boy Advance,will fit the GBA Video Border...and the PSP video,will fit the PSP Video Border. In other words,by using the custom view addons,it allows the theme to represent the system perfectly...rather than the same size border for everything.
    This theme is more than capable of running without a single addon theme installed,and only using the Default...the addons are merely to extend the experience of each system,with special added artwork,and tweaks.On the other hand,the Addons rely on the Default themes structure,and will not work without the default theme installed.
     
    There are multiple views included with the default theme,including -
    1.Border with No Box/Cart/Disc Art
    2.Border with Box/Cart/Disc Art
    3.Border with Box/Spinning Cart/Disc Art
    4.Full Screen Video w/Centered enlarged wheel
    5.Border Text List View with Box/Cart/Disc Art
    The Queso Fresco addon has 5 views -
    1.Special Artwork/Special Border with No Box/Cart/Disc Art
    2.Special Border with Box/Cart/Disc Art  (With wheel fade)
    3.Special Border with Box/Cart/Disc Art  (No wheel fade)
    4.Full Screen Video w/Centered enlarged wheel
     5.Special Border Text List View with Box/Cart/Disc Art
    **If the system has CD's/Discs,then the Disc will spin in Views 2 and 3...but,if the system has carts or floppies,then they will not spin in views 2 and 3.
    The Arcade portion of the Queso Fresco addon has 5 views -
    1.Dynamic Marquees with Character Artwork
    2.No Dynamic Marquees with Character Artwork
    3.Dynamic Marquees with Advert/Flyers
    4.Full Screen Video w/Centered enlarged wheel
    5.Text List View with Advert/Flyers/Cabinets
    With the Queso Fresco addon installed,the arcade platforms are capable of displaying Video Marquees for each game,as well as regular marquees, in the marquee area of the cabinets (Some samples are included,and more are on the way)*
    Any Video Marquees must be placed in "LaunchBox/Themes/Unified Refried/Images/Theme/Addons/_Arcade/Video Marquees/" and must be in mp4 format
    In order to make this work properly,you must go into LaunchBox options,and change the priority for Cart Back Image to Arcade - Marquee,and uncheck anything else.
    Installation:
    1.Download the Default theme (Unified Refried) ,and place it in your "Launchbox/Themes" folder
    2.If you have not done so,you will need to unblock the Plugins...This does not have to be done for every addon theme,as unblocking them once,in the default,is all that is necessary...excerpt taken from unified description -

    3.Set the theme to "Unified Refried" in Options/Views/Theme
    4.If installing any of the addons,simply unzip the addon,and open the folder that was created. In this case we will use the Queso Fresco addon as an example.
    5.Place the two folders (Images and Views) into the Unified Refried default theme folder,merging the folders when prompted.
    6.That's it! ....When you load up Big Box,the artwork should be changed to the Queso Fresco alternate art.
    Pictures of Installation process for those that need them...If this is your first time using Refried you can skip step 1

  4. Hacks & Fan-Made Clear Logos

    A set of 269 logos I either created or found on the web,for the Hacks & Fan-Made games Platform. These cover every game I currently have on my own system,but,certainly not every hacked game in existence. Much like my PSP mini set,I could not find a set without the rectangle box behind them,so I just created one.

  5. PSP Minis Clear Logo Set

    Never been a big fan of clear logos in the rectangle border...so since I could not locate a set of PSP mini logos without the border,I decided to make them myself. Some were taken from the MAME logo set,some were found on google,but,most were cut out of the existing set,or from a screenshot of the title screen. A few are a bit crude,but,they look good in Big Box,so that was all that mattered to me,as I didn't want to spend too much time on these,with other projects taking higher levels of importance,and it already took me a week to do these. Not much exists for making a minted set of these,unless someone wants to sit and redraw every single one...which I don't. There are 294 logos in this set.

  7. Auto Generated Playlist Clear Logos

    83 unique playlist logo sets I created to go with the new Auto Generated Playlist feature recently added. These took quite some time to make,considering I had to create entire fonts for some of them (ScummVM,MAME,NEC SuperGrafx,etc.) due to no font existing,and editing similar fonts to resemble the system fonts for others. Each set contains 8 logos covering the following..
    All Games
    Genres
    Favorites
    Play Modes
    Regions
    Single Player
    Multiplayer
    Cooperative
    Not every playlist/platform will utilize every logo,but,just for completionist sake,I made them all for each one anyways.
    I have organized the file to be drag and drop,but,I still suggest to verify the playlist/platform names before dropping it into your images folder...as some may differ from user to user,and wrongly named files will not show up.
    After placing them in the appropriate place,you should also refresh platform clear logos in options as well.

  8. Refried Theme Platform Video Set

    A set of 155 (with more to come) platform videos,that I have created to match perfectly with my Refried theme. I have used the same character,Background,and border art in the videos,that is in the theme, for the majority of the videos. I am sure it's obvious where the influence came from for the theme,but, this whole thing started out as an alternate version to the Unified theme,which sort of took off and became something slightly different overall. While I do have plans for about 60+ more videos to add to this set,I am afraid I cannot take requests,at least until the project,as a whole, is completed. A special Thank you to @RetroNi for allowing me to use his white bordered logo set,with a few changes,for the titles in these videos...As well as @CriticalCid for giving me the unspoken inspiration to even start this project in the first place!

  11. RetroHumanoid Favorites Video Set

    A set of 22 Favorites Playlist category videos. These are subjective to the persons taste in games,so I included games that I prefer as favorites in the videos. Some may or may not agree with the choices used in some of the videos,but,this was made for my own personal setup,and If anyone wants to use them as well, I figured I would just make them available.At this time I have no plans to add any more of these...but,If I get the itch to make the category bigger,I may.

  13. RetroHumanoid Collection Video Set

    Here is a set of ,currently, 270 Collection videos to be used with playlists. This coincides with all of the media released in the @CriticalCid theme "Unified". I have decided to upload them here,because Jason is a busy man,and I understand how much work it could be to enter this many videos in manually. I do plan on releasing more in the future,with an estimated goal of around 500-600 total playlist videos,as well as all of the artwork for the Unified theme that's needed. I do not have an estimated time-frame as to the release of more,I just know that's the plan. While I never expect anyone to actually have 600 playlists in their BigBox setup,I do believe that variety is the spice of life,and this will give plenty of options for personalizing your lists.Enjoy!
     
    Here was the release video I made for the initial 70 Collection videos :
     
    And here was the preview video of the 200 videos that followed :

    Here is a set of ,currently, 19 Genre videos to be used with playlists. These are different from my previous Genre videos,not only in style,but,also in content. They are designed to be used specifically with MAME,and exclude games from all other Platforms. If Jason decides to add more playlists in the future,I will update with similar videos to accommodate the new playlists.
