  1. That would be perfect, do you have any link about this? Thanks Thanks, you're right.. my theme only has 2 views the rest is all default theme. My bad i should have mention that in the theme page, which i did now. I hope to make it fully functional someday, but right now i don't have the time or the skill (can't program).
  2. I've added some pics of how it looks on my 28inch cabinet.
  3. Wallmachine did the coding here then i did some changes here specifically for 4:3 resolution, i hope this helps you.
  4. I would like to have these 2 options for Attract mode: 1. Custom theme ONLY for attract mode. (I would like to use a different theme only for when attract mode goes ON and then switch back to the theme i normally use when i give an input) i don't know if is it doable. 2. Screensaver option, I use a crt and would love to have this. For example a black background with the ability to choose a cutom image that moves randomly around. (i tried to use the windows screensaver, but i can't exit the screensaver with joystick inputs) PS: thanks for the great work.
  5. Hi, basically i have a grid with a 4:3 ratio, but videos 320x240 do not scale correctly. In this example i'm using 640x480 desktop resolution, at this resolution the grid is exactly 320x240. But as you can see the video in this screenshot is 300x240 and because of that i get black bars. It does the same thing with other desktop resolutions such as 800x600. With videos that are 640x480 i don't have this problem and they scale correctly like this. Here is the code: <Border x:Name="GameVideoBorder" Grid.Column="3" Grid.ColumnSpan="4" Grid.Row="4" Grid.RowSpan="2" CornerRadius="10.0"> <Grid> <Border x:Name="GameVideoMask" CornerRadius="{Binding ElementName=GameVideoBorder, Path=CornerRadius}" Background="#000000"/> <Grid> <Grid.OpacityMask> <VisualBrush Visual="{Binding ElementName=GameVideoMask}" /> </Grid.OpacityMask> <transitions:TransitionPresenter TransitionSelector="{Binding ImageVideoTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding ImageVideoView}" IsContentVideo="true" /> </Grid> </Grid> <Border.Effect> <DropShadowEffect RenderingBias="Performance" Color="#000000" Opacity="0.8" ShadowDepth="0.0" BlurRadius="30.0" /> </Border.Effect> </Border> There is a way to fix this? I don't want to stretch the videos\screens but i want them to maintain aspect ratio. Thanks and sorry for my english.
  6. Sorry, i fixed the error.. now it should work. Thanks for the feedback and enjoy!
  7. Four-By-Three View File Hi, I've designed this theme to work with every 4:3 resolution up to 3200x2400. I did the graphics and @wallmachine did the coding. This theme is a variant of the ARCANE theme. I changed some codes and did a new Platform View and added some new graphic. The theme uses custom banners for each platform showing the corrispettive controller, if you want a specific platform banner let me know (Note that i didn't draw all the banners, i search and modify other images). The theme also uses custom platform logos. If you have questions or problems, let me know! PS: Sorry for my english. Notes: At the moment only supports 2 views as shown in the screens, Game list: Vertical Wheel 1, Platform list: Platform Wheel 1. Any other views will be the default theme one. Install the font inside the zip file in order to make the theme work. If you don't like the icons in the platform wheel (the star and the clock) i've put a background without them in Images\Core, simply overwrite the old background with the new one. The playmode icons work like this: The icons with the plus sign are for all the modes with more than 2 players and for the multiplayer tag. For the modes "Alternating" the icons will be trasparent. For the non-favorited games, the star will appear black and trasparent, otherwise will appear yellow. Features: The platform view shows the controller of the system selected, and the Favorited\Recent games wheels. The game view shows a playmode icon and a favorited icon. Under the game title shows the Publisher - Genres - Year of the game, And of course the Video\Screenshot with the Front cover. Video\Screenshots don't stretch but they maintain aspect ratio, so for example vertical arcade games do not look weird. For videos and screenshots that doesn't have 4:3 aspect ratio will have black bars to avoid stretching. Known issues: The videos and screenshots with low res (320x240) scales at 300x240 with black bars on the right\left sides, even though the grid has the same aspect ratio. However this doesn't happen with videos\screenshots with 640x480+ res. The genres are seperated like this "Action;Platform" but i would like to separe them like this "Action, Platform" But i don't know how to do it.

  9. I have this: <transitions:TransitionPresenter Grid.Column="1" Grid.Row="5" TransitionSelector="{Binding BottomBoxesTransitionSelector}" Content="{Binding BottomBoxesView}"/> How can i make the Boxes adapt to the grid? so if the grid is bigger the boxes are also bigger, but maintaining aspect ratio. Thanks.
  10. Hi everyone, i've designed a 4:3 theme for my arcade cabinet.. but since i don't know how to code it (i tried with visual studio with no results) i figured i would try to ask here if anyone wants to help. I hope you guys like it, i think it would be nice for the community to have more 4:3 themes. The current design is 800x600 but i will be using it with a 640x480 resolution. Here are all the resource files, in the psd files is pretty much all explained and you can see the colors and shadows settings. But i will also give a description here. If something isn't doable let me know and i will adjust things. 1. This is the Favorited games wheel (centered in the grid) if it can contain all the favorited games of the platform would be great. And i would like to access it with the UP key bind. 2. This is the Platform wheel (centered in the grid), i would like it like the Foundamental theme (the selected one bigger and the rest smaller with fade effect) Also i would like it to contain more logos if possible. 3. This is the Recent games wheel (centered in the grid) last 10 recent games would be enough. And i would like to access it with the DOWN key bind. 1 and 3. The front boxes have a shadow effect like this (you can see the shadow settings in the psd files). 1. This is the Games wheel (centered in the grid), i would like it like the Foundamental theme (the selected one bigger and the rest smaller with fade effect) Also i would like it to contain more logos if possible. 2. This is the game title (centered in the grid), has a gradient color and a shadow effect (you can see the settings in the psd files). 3. This are game information (centered in the grid), White text with shadow effect and overall 45% opacity (you can see the settings in the psd files) And contais tags in this format "Developer - Genre - Year" i don't know if its possible to do it like this, also for the games that have more than one genre tag i would like if it displays only the first one, so if its like Action;Platform it displays only Action same thing for Developer tags. 4. This is the Screenshot - Video (centered in the grid), with shadow effect (you can see the settings in the psd files) and the corners have a 10px radius like this. 5. This is the PlayMode icon (centered in the grid) in the resource files are all the icons. 6. This is the Favorited game icon (centered in the grid) if possible i've put an icon for No-Favorited games aswell, in the resource files are all the icons. 7. This is the Front box (aligned bottom right in the grid) with no shadow effect. NOTE: in the psd files all shadows are made with OuterGlow effect with Black to make a shadows that spread out in all corners. Like this, and have differents settings and opacity (you can check on the psd files). If someone is interested in coding this and have questions etc you can either post here or add me on Discord where i'm always online and i can reply right away (Jack#0189) Also if you wanna make it more complete i can do the grapich part. Sorry for my english and thanks.

    Import roms

    Region Priorities in Options how does it work? On Launchbox in Options there is Region Priorities, i've set up US on first.. I have a romset of SNES games, i imported that romset using the options "Combine ROMs with matching titles into a single game" but for the games with multiple region roms it doesnt work.. it set up other region as default and not how i set it up on Region Priorities.. Basically i don't care if i have the physical files in the folder, but i would want to be able to choose Region Priorities for the combined roms so that if a rom has (usa, eu and jp) versions it would be set for usa as default game, instead of manually choose it (especially for big box use) EDIT: nm i'm stupid and i wasn't using north america but united states, now it works.

    Import roms

    I'm looking for a way to sort the roms i want to import in LaunchBox like the MAME wizard but for other platforms as well. For example, if i want to import snes or genesis games, i would want to skip clones and prioritize regions like EU>USA>JAP and other options to skip roms that are not original etc. Anyone can help me? Thanks. Sorry for my english.
  14. Hi everyone, i'm new here. I'm about to buy this PC for my Arcade Cabinet with CRT monitor so 640x480 resolution. CPU: Intel Core 2 Quad Q6600 (maybe i will overclock a bit to get it at 3.0 ghz) RAM: 4gb ddr2 800mhz GPU: Ati HD4850 The question is: i will have perfomance issues with bigbox browsing through games? Nothing too fancy, maybe just clear logo list on the left, info on the right with a little box video preview. Something like this or this. Thanks!
