  1. Don't forget that you need to manually swap names of the images in the Theme's folder:
  2. Hi! You might want to check the time bigbox waits for the emulator start (in options), also if you don't want to use that bg music, jut go into the theme's folder and rename/delete the .mp4 file for each system Cheers!
  3. Hi matt, thanks for your interest, I have added an optional background for Dreamcast, you just have to go into the media folder of the theme and swap names of files (when you see them you'll know what I mean), cheers!
  4. Flat and Classic Mini by exodus_cl View File This was supposed to be a simple flat theme, but evolved into a 2 in 1, so you have the regular view which is flat and sleek and also you have available an optional view (per device) that resemble some classic mini consoles (including consoles that do not have mini versions as of yet). Features of this theme: Simple flat version that runs fast and looks great. No flashy animations that may affect perfomance. Optional "Classic Mini" view for many systems. Every Classic Mini view has it's own background music. Improved original design of some "Classic Mini" (Such as PSX and Genesis). "Classic Mini" style views for consoles that do not have an oficial Mini version (such as PS2, WII, etc.). Platform/console selection with video (you need to download the video first from regular launchbox menu). First version (1.0.1) has most of the more known consoles in "Classic Mini" style: NES, GB, GBC, Sega Master System, SNES, Turbografx, Gega Genesis, N64, PSX, Dreamcast, Gamecube, PS2, WII, WiiU, etc. Recommended configuration: Platform selection Regular GameList ViewOptional "Classic Mini" view . Video of the theme in action (no fancy editing for now) Please follow my channel for updates and related content. If you have any questions, please let me know. P.S.: English is not my first language so I apologise for any mistake. P.S.2: Thanks y2guru for your amazing theme editor. Submitter exodus_cl Submitted 05/20/2020 Category Big Box Custom Themes

  6. got late to the pool, great for you to care about asking, the upload of the video is always better since we can watch it whenever we can Thanks!
  7. Hi! The video is not available I don't know where to ask this so I post it in the 2 topics just in case Isaw the the latest release includes system options, but I cant see how to create it, I edited the theme I was creating with an older version and when I went to bigbox, the options screen still appears with the default BB theme. Does this update includes that screen or I'm assuming wrong?
  8. Hi @y2guru ! I saw the the latest release includes system options, but I cant see how to create it, I edited the theme I was creating with an older version and when I went to bigbox, the options screen still appears with the default BB theme. Does this update includes that screen or I'm assuming wrong? This is the screen I want to edit: Thanks for your time!
  9. Yes, I did a custom theme, you can see the yellow outline that shows the actual screen space that's vailable for viewing, in mame I use .lay files to adjust the horizontal and vertical games to fit nicely with some artwork to fill the empty spaces. The idea was to have more space available for vertical games and it works wonders.
  10. Yes, the screen is vertical 16:9, but to give it a more 4:3 feel, the sides are hidden inside the cab (that's why it looks kind of a square) so the real resolution is 768x1024, but the visible part is 768px wide x 800px height. More pictures to show you the custom theme and usable size of the screen (i'm dumb I know, I should have done this the first time):
  11. Thanks Jason!!! the hiscores now look way better on lower resolutions, the tabs are kind of hidden in the upper part, but I suppose it's because of my configuration (768 width x 800 height). This is a great fix for vertical configurations!!!
  12. Thanks for your time Jason, I understand that the option to reduce text size may be too complicated, so maybe just reduce the text size a bit in order to show the scores over a million and the 4 main tabs (weekly to all-time) that really would be more than enough 😀 (or maybe just make the window wider), I attach a picture for you to see: The 720p screen on vertical has 768px wide, let me know if you need more info, thanks in advance.
  13. That was the issue, I was using gui version of no nag, now i'm on the "normal" version and it's ok. One last thing! I wanted to remind you the problem of the hiscores window in lower resolutions (or vertical placed monitors) where the texts are too big, I attach the link of the post where I explained it better, thanks in advance!:
  14. I updated and now the hiscore feature is not present... I have it activated in options (both options are checked) and my app is connected to the DB... no tables with high scores are shown in regular LB and no option to see high scores is available in BigBox either... I reinstalled everything from scratch and nothing happens. Thanks in advance
  15. Perfect, thanks again! Being nitpicky here now... is there anything you (or us) can do to adjust the selection bar for it to be more centered? now it's longer to the left and on the right there's no white outline so it looks unbalanced. this is on TextGamesView
  16. I'll be damn, that was the issue, so the comma was the key for you to figure it out LOL I changed the language to English and BAM, the starts rating appears now inside BB 😁 Time to continue with the design then, thanks for this amazing work man!!! you made BigBox 10 times better!
  17. As you can see, the rating is in the upper right part in numeric form, I forgot to mention that the screenshots had the purpose to show the numeric rating in the upper right. No matter the fallback, the rating does not appear for games that have a rating inside BB, it only works for games that are 0,0 (check the turbografx SS in the last message) So, I have ratings, but only in numbers (the stars work only in the editor), I must add that I have tested this on 2 different computers, the stars rating do not work on the default theme you provided with the editor either. capture inside BB with fallback, notice the rating is 3.2, but the stars shown are the fallback: One last detail I noticed, the raiting in the editor has a "." while in BB it shows a ",", this is nothing important, but weird nontheless. Thanks again!
  18. Thank for your help!, 2 and 3 are working now, they needed the format to be selected (maybe consider a default format to avoid confusion?). About the stars ratings: I attach the SS, as you can see, it works in the editor (1st SS), but when I publish, it does not work inside BB (2nd SS), it only shows the starts when a game has no rating (3rd SS) .
  19. That would be such a huge help! let me explain the situation for you to get the idea (and know that it's worth it): As LCD in the 4:3 format do not go bigger than 19" nowadays, it's possible to add a vertical bigger LCD to be used as a "fake 4:3" more squared display to be able to play horizontal and vertical games in a good way (playing vertical shooters on a 19" 4:3 screen is pretty bad, so this a good solution to that... obviously the side parts of the screen are unused and hidden inside the cab, so I'm using a 40" 1366x768 lcd that gives me a 24,5 inch 4:3 screen when playing horizontal games and a nice 24 inch vertical screen for shooters! The community theme builder came as a gift from heaven since now we can do themes for every screen size and resolution, but this little popup windows are still out of reach. Again, I would be very thankful if you could do an adjustment to this!
  20. 40" Vertical monitor on the cab, 768px wide 1024px height, dpi/scaling config in w10 is at 100% (the minimum that it allows). If there is a xaml/xml file where I could edit the font size, it would be great (community theme editor won't allow to edit those popup windows)
  21. Can anyone tell me what file should I edit in order to reduce the text size of the hi score tables? in lower resolutions it looks bad.
  22. Hi! I'm having some problems: 1.- The star rating works only in the editor (the rating changes according to the game), but when I publish the theme and open BigBox, the star rating won't show up. I'm using the stars images from the demo theme 2.- The "Release date" is not working, the widget is blank in the editor and in BIGBOX, only the fallback text is shown. 3.- The "Last time played" is not working either, the widget is blank in the editor and in BIGBOX, only the fallback text is shown. ¿Any idea? thanks in advance!
  23. Thanks! I reinstalled everything from scratch and now it's fine, the update to 13 messed something up on my end I think. ___ Now I installed it on my second computer and got this MAME error, any idea? (it's exaclty the same config) EDIT / PROBLEM SOLVED: I copied the plugins folder from computer A to computer B and now it's working ok.
