    BigBox has the ability to use different themes for different platforms/playlists. So, yes, this is completely possible.

    I heard there may be an issue if one of your platforms/playlists doesn't have a theme video associated with it. That might be the issue.

    Hi @nikeymikey. I can't seem to recreate this at all. Does the rest of the theme work other than the videos? Do other themes work with the videos? Maybe you can provide some information, like OS, version of LaunchBox.

    CoinOP

    CoinOP View File CoinOP is a BigBox theme based on Pezley's arcade theme concept. It's my take on a 1080p version of it. This theme is specifically designed to be used with an Arcade build, for 4:3 video snaps, and marquees. Want to make your own Marquee? Use this file for an example: CoinOP Marquee Example.psd Make sure you right click the zip file, choose properties, and unblock the file. Then extract the CoinOP directory into the Launchbox\Themes folder. This theme comes with a number of views: Vertical Platform View 1 Vertical Games Wheel 1 - basic view Vertical Games Wheel 2 - basic view with animated Game Graphic (png/gif) Text Games View - basic text view with animated Game Graphic (png/gif) Each game can have its own unique Game Graphic. This graphic will animate next to the arcade. Each game can only have 1 graphic. There are 3 rules to making the Game Graphic appear in the theme: 1. The file name needs to match the Launchbox Database ID number of the game. 2. The file can be either PNG or GIF (allowing for animated GIFs). 3. The file needs to be located in the following directory: Launchbox\Themes\CoinOP\Images\GameGraphics\[Launchbox DB ID].png To find the LaunchBox DB ID, you must first have the game in your gaming library. Open up LaunchBox and search for the game. Right click the game and choose Edit. The LaunchBox DB ID number will be located in the top right.

    There's no way to delay it's start, but you could possibly combine a collapsed visibility animation with an opacity animation to stop it from appearing for a certain amount of time.

    Couple things: I'll look into updating the plugin themer to the newest version. I'm sure that will fix a bunch of issues with playlists. @Scratcher There should be a property on the video somewhere called StretchVideo, which you can remove. That should keep native aspect ratio intact. That property may be located in the Retrotastic.xaml file.

    CoverBox

    Hi @GiuseppeIII. The error seems to be caused by needing to unblock the plugin in each theme that is located in the Coverbox\Plugin folder. You can right click the plugin files, go into properties, and find the unblock option. You pretty much figured out the scanline issue. You can try to use the following picture instead. Just overwrite the scanline image with this one. Let me know if it looks okay. The path should be something like Themes\Coverbox\Images\Theme\ I also see that the game list is larger because of the resolution change as well. You can fix this by opening the following file in a text editor and changing the font size: Coverbox\Views\TextListView.xaml Find this line, and change the FontSize to something smaller, to suit your resolution: <lbsc:GameList Name="Items" FontSize="32"> You'll need to do this for every Coverbox theme you would like to use.

    Yes, that is the way it was designed. As it is supposed to represent an N64 Game cover.
