    Nostalgia Playlist Videos

    I'll put together a write up of what I do along with the templates into a zip file and add that in when I upload the next couple files. If there any particular series I can add them to the to do list. Making the final video is pretty easy as it's just replacing some files in the template. Toughest/longest part is finding/prepping the relevant sub videos to put in, so if there are particular games you'd prefer on the the screens I'm always open for the suggestions. That and I debate far to long on which music to add in and what image to use for the center.

    LaunchBox doesn't start since 9.4

    The info for mine: installed to Dropbox. The "install" technically spans 3 devices, 2 using Win10 Pro, the third using Win 10 Enterprise LTSB 2016. Not run on the LTSB but the folder syncs to it.

    LaunchBox doesn't start since 9.4

    Update from 9.3 to 9.4 for me. Didn't attempt bigbox till after which opened without issue. I didn't restart inbetween the removal of the VLC folder and the reinstall of the update.

    I just had a similar issue. I wound up deleting the VLC folder then installed over my existing install with the download from the update folder and that got me up and running. Edit: I also ran the installer as administrator

    Nostalgia |4:3| video Set

    Sorry for raising this thread from the dead, but I figured it was the appropriate place as it's where people with interest in this series would be. I've been making some playlist/genre videos using the assets Viking and Dragon provided and have shared them up in the downloads section
  7. Version 1.0.2

    225 downloads

    Greetings all, I've been a huge fan of the Nostalgia video sets that Viking and Dragon57 created and have been using them on my Big Box for a long while at this point. A few months back I asked them for permission and access to the source files for the playlist set and they generously provided them (to everyone!) I've been pretty busy since that time but lately I've been working on various playlist/genre videos in the style of the "Playlists" video from that set. The ones I've done so far are uploaded here. I'm sure there will be more on the way, but I can't promise how often they will come. Currently there are about 10 more I know I need to create for myself so at least that many are in the pipe. Feel free to edit them as well. Thanks again to Viking and Dragon57 for making these possible. Current List: Ace Combat Armored Core Assassins Creed Baseball Basketball Batman Castlevania Contra Crash Bandicoot DC (Comics) Disney Final Fantasy Football Golf Hockey James Bond Mario Marvel (Comics) Mega Man Metroid Olympics Pac-man Racket Sports (same as tennis other than center screen) Sonic Spider-man Star Wars Tennis Wrestling X-Games (e.g. skateboarding, skydiving, snowboarding, etc.) Zelda

    9.4-beta-1 Released

    Update to beta3 from beta2 caused Launchbox to fail to start for me, no listed errors. It would get to the end of initializing then just quit out like it was closing without ever loading the interface. I reinstalled beta3 manually but still no joy there. I went back and reverted to 9.3 and was back in action. Didn't attempt to move to any of the betas again as of yet. I know just saying this isn't super helpful but I can grab any particular logs you may want. Edit: For the beta3 I did wait about 5 minutes after it closed out to see if it was updating anything unseen in the background. Pulled up the task manager but didn't see any VLC or Launchbox related processes running after it closed out. If it helps, I install directly into Dropbox.
  10. Hey JPGIII, really like those arcade logos that you created (657). Just wondered if you've made any more for the arcade set? if no, then I hope you don't mind me creating the rest for my mame romset and uploading here on launchbox once finished?

    Regards, Adam

      totally go for it. I've been tied up between work and coaching since early August so I haven't been able to do much. Attached is the base files I use to make them

      Thank you. Have recently uploaded just over 2,300 of these buggers onto Launchbox. Seemed to take an age to do. But all done as far as my romset is concerned. Now got a fullset of logos for all my systems. 

  11. hey Gents, a hearty thank you and quick question. Will this also be compatible with Launchbox.next as it appears the normal LB mode will be going away in the next few releases? I noticed that currently it doesn't show up in the .next interface when I load that up, but I haven't played with the new interface much as of yet so it could be buried somewhere I just didn't notice yet.

    Arcade - 2D Box Covers

    Well this is going slower than I hoped. This evening was the first time I had to chance to do any as baseball has been getting in the way of my free time as of late. A couple here that I was able to get done. With the new marquees retrolust is doing I may wind up redoing these down the line.

    Arcade - 2D Box Covers

    For me, it's about things being uniform style/appearance. Many of the flyers are of different orientation, style and such. I'd be making these for myself either way, so I might as well share them.

    Arcade - 2D Box Covers

    Working on a new project to create "Front Box Covers" for the Arcade Platform (no filler all killer set). Since box covers don't actually exist I thought it would be a cool idea to create a representation of the front of an arcade machine as that what you would see walking up. I've altered some artwork assets Viking shared from his video set to create a template I can load marque and screenshot graphics into that comes out pretty good. Need to streamline the template a bit more with a few tweeks including various proportioned screeds (for vertical and odd sized res games) but that's coming along. Figured I'd ask for others opinions on what would be tweeks that could be made that they think would make it come out better. Screenshot of what they look like in action as well as with and without a game screenshot are below.

    Nostalgia |4:3| video Set

    I'm still learning aftereffects so this was my first attempt at a playlist video. It's for mega man. Think it came out okay, but I'll still need to do something for the middle tv other than just a static image. MegaManPlaylist.mp4
