  1. I just backed out to options,then switched to criticalzone...exited options to load criticalzone...shut down big box...moved all the old refried files to a backup folder...then loaded big box again and switched to refried 2.0. May not have been the easiest way,but,it worked fine for me. Also,what neil said about turning off the seperate views per platform option and doing things and stuff.
  2. If you change the text size,it will also change the wheel size...if that is something you are ok with,then the item colored red here will alter the size...It is near the bottom of the view xaml,and you will have to change this value for every system/view you want to change. The best way would be to use Notepad++ and change them all at once in bulk. <!-- WHEEL --> <coverFlow:FlowControl x:Name="FlowControl" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Column="4" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Grid.Row="0" Grid.RowSpan="8" CoverFactory="{Binding CoverFactory}" ImageType="Clear Logos" CurveAmount="0" CameraZPosition="2.1" VisibleCount="16" PageSize="6" Spacing="1" ItemZPosition="0.7" SelectedItemZPosition="1.1" Panel.ZIndex="10" > <coverFlow:FlowControl.Opacity>100</coverFlow:FlowControl.Opacity> <coverFlow:FlowControl.Effect> <DropShadowEffect BlurRadius="20" Direction="-10" RenderingBias="Quality" ShadowDepth="1" Color="White" /> </coverFlow:FlowControl.Effect> </coverFlow:FlowControl>
  3. The old Refried before today,is no more...so you can trash that with it's 200+ themes....or keep it....if you want. The new Refried is just 1 theme....and if you choose to use addons,you just take the stuff in the addon zip files and combine them into the main Unified Refried theme and they should just work (as long as I did everything right).
  4. Just a heads up Do not download refried 2.0 just yet. I changed the description in the theme post,so it may look like the update is live,but,it is currently uploading,and the available version is the older one. I will post here when it is done and ready for download
  5. This is explained in the themes description on the download page ---- "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."
  6. 1) I'm not sure if there is a way to know really...other than visual queues in the artwork placement and stuff. I wouldn't mind having maybe a popup text that shows for a few seconds,and shows the current view you are on when toggling through views. 2)With my next update,it won't...the whole Refried theme structure is going to change drastically,so it will be a fresh install. I wouldn't stress making too many changes to the current 200+ themes out now,because they are all going away,and becoming just 2 themes after the update. Same features,smaller and easier to use package.
  7. Find the following section in the view xaml you want to change (It's near the bottom)...and delete the highlighted section.. <!-- WHEEL --> <coverFlow:FlowControl x:Name="FlowControl" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Column="4" Grid.ColumnSpan="3" Grid.Row="0" Grid.RowSpan="8" CoverFactory="{Binding CoverFactory}" ImageType="Clear Logos" CurveAmount="0" CameraZPosition="2.1" VisibleCount="16" PageSize="6" Spacing="1" ItemZPosition="0.7" SelectedItemZPosition="1.1" Panel.ZIndex="10" > <coverFlow:FlowControl.Opacity>100</coverFlow:FlowControl.Opacity> <coverFlow:FlowControl.Effect> <DropShadowEffect BlurRadius="20" Direction="-10" RenderingBias="Quality" ShadowDepth="1" Color="White" /> </coverFlow:FlowControl.Effect> </coverFlow:FlowControl> Looks normal to me...you can set a view change key/button in big box options to browse views "Images/Platforms/(System Name)/Clear Logo/(System Name).png" "Images/Playlists/(Playlist Name)/Clear Logo/(Playlist Name).png" Find the following in the view xaml you want to change(It's near the top),and delete the highlighted sections.. <!-- FADING WHEEL --> <DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames Storyboard.TargetProperty="(UIElement.Opacity)" Storyboard.TargetName="FlowControl"> <EasingDoubleKeyFrame KeyTime="0:0:0.0" Value="1"/> <EasingDoubleKeyFrame KeyTime="0:0:0.8" Value="1"/> <EasingDoubleKeyFrame KeyTime="0:0:1.3" Value="0.15"/> </DoubleAnimationUsingKeyFrames> <Int32Animation Storyboard.TargetName="FlowControl" Duration="00:00:1.9" Storyboard.TargetProperty="(Panel.ZIndex)" From="10" To="2"/> To change the order the platforms display,you can go into Launchbox and right click a platforms title and select edit,then in the edit menu you can assign sort titles to each platform to place them in any order you specify. I did the same exact thing to group by companies (ie;Nintendo,Sega,etc.). I labeled them A1,A2,A3,B1,B2,B3....that way if I ever add new systems,I won't have to change a bunch of sort titles...I just name the new one B4 or whatever.
  8. Thanks...the Refried Startup screens aren't quite finished yet...I have a big move coming up mid February,so sometime after that I will finish up the work needed and release them as a startup theme.
  9. Been a while since I posted...so I figured I would throw an update out there of what I have been up to. Here is the status of the Refried Startup screens so far... Logos are finished for 201 systems... Examples: Now Loading text is finished for 160 systems (alot of them require/required custom work) .... Examples: Once the startup screens are finished and released,I will be working on a Refried Marquee set. Also with the recent changes to Launchbox theme structure,Refried does not appear to be broken in its current state,but,an update will be released soon with a restructured format that will make applying the theme much easier and user friendly,as well as some minor fixes/changes/tweaks. If anyone notices anything effected by the current changes,that seems to require immediate attention,feel free to notify me ASAP. Thanks!
  10. @Jason Carr This is amazing...and I cannot wait to test this out! Unfortunately, I literally just broke down my arcade cabinet last night,to prepare for our move to the big place in February ,but,at least we finally can get out of this shoe-box we have been living in since July. As soon as I am back up and running,I can update the theme,and push the update to the forums....I seriously can't wait!
  11. Keep in mind any changes you make directly to the Default theme,will revert back to the default settings when you restart Big Box...you need to work off of a copy of the Default theme. You will need to change any references to the default theme,to point to your copy as well.
  12. Unified Refried uses the following... *Box - 3D *Cart - Front *Clear Logo *Advertisement Flyer - Front *Arcade - Cabinet *Disc *Arcade - Marquee (Setting the 'Box - Back' priority to 'Arcade - Marquee' in Launchbox...it does not use 'Box - Back' artwork) And if you want the backgrounds for the default load screens to show,you will need to keep the 'Fanart - Background' art as well
  13. No there isn't....is there any particular reason you wouldn't upgrade your version for it?...7.15 is pretty old at this point
  14. The 2 white 32" on the left are my Main PC monitors...the small 19" tv is just a tv...and the 32" on the right is the Arcade Cabinet main screen,with a 25" marquee monitor above it. It is duplicated because I was running an Elgato HD to feed the Arcade/Game Consoles to my Main PC desktop,and the HDMI was run to the 19" tv so that I could play with no lag (because the elgato has about a 3-5 second lag time from source to elgato to obs) while sitting at the desk. I dropped that small tv while moving and it broke unfortunately...I was pretty happy with the setup,so it really sucked to lose the tv..but,it was a cheapy. I believe this pic was during my Hyperspin days...but,I have setup my marquee through Launchbox to look very similar to the setup in the pic when I converted over.
  15. A few pics of my old game room (these are from 2016,so a few things were changed,but,for the most part it was the same)...I had to move about 6 months ago,and we are in a much smaller place atm,but,we are hopefully getting a nice big place again in a few weeks and I can take it all out of storage and set it up again. What isn't shown,is the shelf with all my PS1,PS2 and Sega games...as well as the closet packed with crap I found cheap at yard sales,but,will probably never use,lol
  16. I didn't use photoshop for the theme...it was assembled in Gimp actually. I used default borders for every system and built onto them with layers of prepared artwork...just kinda eyeballing placements for each one. Here are the borders I used.. Refried Borders.zip Not much else to it really Happy New Year to you as well!
  17. Sorry for the delay...holidays and stuff,still recovering... I really appreciate the share,and can definitely tell you put alot of work into this thing. Your collection is definitely leagues above what I have as far as pdf files. I haven't had the chance to place it into big box yet,but,I can already tell that now I have to do this with my comics and magazines,lol.
  18. This is awesome...as I currently have a large pdf collection already,I would love to get ahold of your premade setup (minus the actual books)...It would look great in my setup,and make D&D night more convenient. I will have to make a platform category video for "Books & Magazines" now if I set this up
