32-Bit GPU (5/7)



  1. Nice collection. I have ended up using the flyers and clear logos for my VPX artwork. Along with gameplay videos. It is a tedious task collecting pinball artwork since you pretty much have to create it yourself. So, kudos for sharing, no matter how niche it may be.
  2. For my Launchbox/Android build on my phone, I am using Retroarch and specifically the Mame 2003 plus core since it seems to be the most compatible with my 0.198 roms. The most up to date Mame/retoarch core had a lot of issues with dual stick shooters like Back Widow and Robotron not shooting at diagonals - the 2003 plus core fixed that issue. For my PC build, I use MAME 198 with 198 roms. Matching, as always suggested. I am stuck on 198 because I have no desire to go through the hassle of the cascading problems that can come from updating MAME from such an old build.
  3. The new sound feature works perfect. Thanks for adding it. How did you make your voice sounds? I may give that a try
  4. Nice, I am going to use the consoles and PC startup sounds. But, I like your voice sounds too. I suppose I need to wait until the 2.2 update to get this new feature?
  5. Yes, that is what I want. Thanks for clarifying. I was beating my head trying to get C-Beats stuff you work, with no luck.
  6. This did not work for me. I assume this will be a tool that needs to be implemented into Community Theme Creator to work? I tried putting a wav file into my following folder... (but did not work) \LaunchBox\Themes\Tilted\Sounds\Nintendo Entertainment System\I tried both Select and Startup\Nintendo Entertainment System.wav I was unsure which {SoundType} to use to name my folder, so maybe I screwed that up. Am I missing something?
  7. @y2guru How would I go about adding sounds for each Platform as I toggle through them in the Platform view? I have downloaded startup mp3's of each console, and would like for them to start as I select them in the Platform list. Like you can currently do with platform videos. I am not using videos for my build.
  8. Thanks for sharing this theme @faeran. I used it as my first guide in learning Community Theme Creator, and it was a great help getting to know all the tools and such. I started tweaking things here and there and ended up with something I am pretty proud of. It is still very similar to your Tilt theme, but with added box, cart, logo artwork, a few shadows here and there, and I am using Device images instead of Fanart. I tried to keep all the animations fast to help navigation through menus snappy. I present you my theme, Tilted =P
    I finally got around to giving this a try. Wow!! What a wonderful piece of software. I am no coder, and I was able to stumble my way through it pretty well. I ended up starting with the Tilt theme as a base, and started tweaking it to my liking. After a day of messing around, I now have my own custom theme, that I (kind of) created. So cool. Thanks to the dev so much for creating this. I can now make my own refinements of themes, instead of begging the original authors to do it for me. Win-Win for everyone 😃
  9. I figured it out, and sorry for wasting your time. It was the Padding setting (right, left, up, down). The padding was set too large in the Fram 1 box, cutting off the bottom text when it scrolled all the way down. It just so happened that those platforms that I was asking about has a body only slightly larger than the box. So it would start to scroll, but only need to scroll a small bit to get to the bottom; but had the bottom padding cutting it off. So the padding was blocking the text. I will need to play around with this a bit to get it to show up like i want. I supoose I need a padding of 0 at the bottom.
  10. I figured that to be the case about Conditions, but it seemed too much of a cooincidence to ignore or not mention. Why then do you think some of my platforms do not auto scroll, even when the body of the text is larger than the box? You can see it try to start (slight pixel shift), but then it gets stuck with the Sony Playstation and Visual Pinball X platform text description boxes. Please watch the video I posted if you have not yet. Thanks! I also included a ZIP of the them just in case you have time to poke around with that attribute.
  11. @y2guru This video shows, what I think may be, a bug in the Community Theme Creator for BigBox. For some reason, my custom platforms will not auto scroll the text in the placed "Text Scroller" field. And by custom platform, I mean the Foreground/Conditions setting for the "Rectangle - Overlay" layer. In order to get the naming conventions to match my build, I had to edit a few of the condition rules/platform names under the Conditions. For example, I changed Playstation 1 to Sony Playstation. And I had to add a field for Visual Pinball X. Both of these platforms will not scroll the text. All the others that I did not rename seem to be fine. Everything seems to scroll fine in all the Game description windows. FYI - I used the Tilt theme and modified it to my liking. I have attached a ZIP of my theme's project files in case you want to try to troubleshoot. Named "Tilted". Here is the link to @faeran original Tilt theme. Thanks for any suggestions in fixing this.

  12. I have added a tutorial for upgrading your DMD from the default DMD to Freezy's DMD. This allows for higher resolution DMDs for both the dot matrix and alphanumeric DMDs. And if you are brave enough, I have also included steps on how to colorize some of the tables DMDs. See the second video in my first post.
  13. Can I suggest making the selected box, or clear logo, slightly larger when selected? That always worked for my eyes.
  14. I tried to open it in the latest CTC tool, but no luck. Maybe the project files are too old for the current version of the CTC tool? I was able to open and edit some other authors CTC files, though they were newer themes.
