  1. Version 1.0.5

    80 downloads

    Clean, modern look. Designed especially for using on Large 4K Screens and TVs. All 21 views, including new marquees. If you like to grab a controller or two, hit the couch and jump in front of a 4K Big Screen TV, this may be the theme for you. That's what I created it for! Information Rich using very visible color graphic image icons for genres, play modes, max players/controllers (actual controllers are shown for the ones I could find). Lots of items fading in/out throughout the theme. The "Game Details" view has tons of info mostly in the graphic format, it's the 3rd screenshot. The 1st screenshot transitions into the 2nd screenshot. It can also show if the game can be played in Virtual Reality, Online, PvP, and more with some very simple setup. (Instructions Below) It heavily relies on video snaps for it's focal point. In most of the views, the videos will expand and retract when there is no navigation being done in Bigbox. Includes over 190 audio Platform .mp3 files and 250 Genre Icons (plus the Photoshop template to easily make more). If you don't like the Platform audio voices, just delete them in the Audio folder within the theme. Includes ALL 21 views (including the new marquee views). Some cool animations as well. The 2nd file called "Fading Elegance (Missing Video Snap)" was my original design see comments below Added a NEW version called Fading Elegance v1+ . It has fanart fade into the background and randomly changes every 5 seconds on the Platform Views and has the game's fanart that shows in the Games Views. See the last screenshot. Thanks to @MangaAddict for the suggestion. While I was at it, I figured I wanted some new sounds to go with the new theme, you can check them out if you're interested. I called them "The Mix" Matching "Fading Elegance" Startup-Exit Theme - (with animation) Matching "Fading Elegance" Pause Screen - (with animation) Fading Elegance v1+ - This is a better video that included the Start/Exit & Pause themes in actions as well. Fading Elegance v1 (Be patient with first minute or so, it's showing an example of how some of the videos expand/retract) Video for the Marquee views: I don't know how to over lap them. Instructions to use Split Screen, Virtual Reality, PvP and Onlne Play Icon features: To get the Split Screen, VR, PvP and Onlne Play icons to work in the theme is really pretty easy. Create the 4 Custom Fields below in Launchbox, just edit any single game in your collection and pick Custom Fields on the left panel. Copy-n-paste one of the 4 custom fields below and press <ENTER>. Then enter Yes in the value section press <ENTER>. Copy-n-paste the other 3 Custom Fields and do the same. Then press OK Now the fields should be ready and Yes is now a choice in Bulk Edit. Close Launchbox and re-open just to be safe. Then you can go back to the game you used to set up the custom fields and delete the Yes's if you need to. What I did, was to sort my collection different ways like genre or playmode. I had a genre set up for MMO, so I bulk edited all the games in that category, first I chose Play Mode, making sure they all had multiplayer added as a value. Then I said yes to make more changes, and then chose the newly created Custom Field: Online Play and just select Yes in the dropdown to add value. The theme will now display the animated globe for all those games in the views that use it. Do that for the other 3 Custom fields using similiar sorts. Of course any game can be edited manually as well. The custom fields you need to add: Virtual Reality Split Screen PvP Online I had never used CTC until about 2 weeks ago (amazing program, huge thanks to y2guru for sharing it and helping me with it). I'm still learning it and am still tweaking and tinkering with animations as far as timing and controls of them and to get them to work like I want. I wasn't quite sure how most Bigbox folks use the Marquee views, so I just winged it. Like maybe a pinball machine marquee? Ya'll can let me know if I got it all wrong. That is what the 2nd video is, just the marquee capture. In the orignal design, I had added a video that displays when there is no video snap for a game, but I could only find one way to actually make it work decently. I am glad I found a way to get it to work, but absolutely hate the way I had to do it. It slows the theme down a bit. Maybe there will be someone out there that knows a better way to implement it or maybe future enhancements to Launchbox or CTC will make it easier to accomplish. About 1/2 the time you might see a glimps of the Missing Video video during navigation. It's because it is running in the background behind the game video snap and sometimes it would show just before the game's video snap is shown. If you interested in trying it out, It is the one called "Fading Elegance (Missing Video Snap)". My sincere thanks goes out to @y2guru for sharing CTC, @viking for sharing his videos with us, the "Theme Guru" (@faeran) and @Jason Carr for getting the upload issues fixed for me! There are many more that do so much for all of us. Thank you If you like my stuff and use Kodi or a fork of it, take a peak at the skins I have done for it (mostly for kids) and maybe subscribe and say hey while you're there. My Bigbox and Kodi Videos -Enjoy

  4. Version 3.0.6

    6,924 downloads

    Advanced Retro Console Version 3. This has a more difficult and time consuming setup process but might be worth it once completed. The goal behind this theme is to make an entire eco system that matches in style, effect and overall feel. On this page you will find everything you need to build exactly that including the Theme itself(multiple versions), startup and shutdown theme, pause theme, sound pack, BigBox startup video and more. I will continue to support this for as long as humanly possible and will continue to improve or add new features as they become available but I will not be making any more new versions. My goal here is just to simplify my work time and allow this one to become the best overall. I also want to add a thank you right now for all the hard work from @y2guru. Without his Community Theme Creator, none of this would exist. There are several more who deserve credit for helping and contributing to this project such as @faeran and of course Jason for building the whole thing. That being said lets get to all the new stuff! I added several new Platform views for the ones I play the most. They are NOT meant to be exact in anyway, just meant to replicate each console enough to feel nostagic. I made logo packs for every single platform I have which is over 80 right now. This version of the theme will only use these custom logos. It is made to be specific to this theme and to match in style. These are avilable on a seperate download page here: Click Here Added a new wall view. Simple but sweet and clean. I cleaned up all animations and simplified some to make it more helpful rather than intrusive (hopefully)! New Controller Matching button packs are available. Added a new Banner location and created custom banners for those views. Several have been made already and are available on a separate download page here: Click Here Finally made a new Dark version for each and every part including the startup and pause themes. Also, finally figured out how to get the Category and Playlist views to work properly. (you can find the custom logos for those views on this page including the collection logos) You will need the following files: Game Logo Packs: Click Here (or make your own) Banner Image Packs: Click Here (or make your own) Custom Platform Logo Packs: Found on this page (each file name matches the platform name) Step by Step Setup: Download the Theme itself. There are 2 versions, dark or light. Download the startup theme to match, dark or light. Download the pause theme to match, dark or light. Download controller button pack(s) if not using an Xbox controller. Download the sound pack if wanted. Download the startup video for BigBox also if wanted. Download all the console specific logo packs. The files are named after the platform or console itself. (ex: for PS1 download the ‘Sony Playstation.zip’) This theme has custom views made for some consoles, listed below, and these are the required logo packs for those to work. Download platform logos. (these are for the main platform view) Download platform category logos. (these are the main logos for categories such as genres, playmodes etc.) Download playlist logos. (these are for all playlists such as Arcade Action or Arcade All Games, etc.) Download collection playlist logos. (these are for all your custom collections such as 19xx or mario or 007, etc. Over 1700 logos in here.) Follow the links below and download a logo pack for each console and platform you have in your setup or download my Retro Console Logo Creator.zip and make your own set to match. Finally, follow all the steps below to make sure you put each file in the right place and most importantly, HAVE FUN. If you need help just ask and I will do my best! Instructions and File Locations: (all logo packs, etc: are placed within the theme folder, you must install this theme for any of them to work) NOTE: in the examples below I am using the 'Retro Console Light V3' theme as an example. If you are using the 'Retro Console Dark V3' then please replace that part as needed. Platform Logos(on this page) : Please place these inside this folder: ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Platforms\Custom Images 1\ Custom Platform View Logos(on this page) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 3\ Custom Banner Images(found here) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 2\ Game Clear Logos(found here) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 1\ Once each pack is installed you will be able to run this theme the same as it is in the video above. The custom Banner packs are not required, but the rest are. While using the new logo packs you may find that your game list is different or you just want to make some of your own. @faeran has made a video tutorial on how to use the new Custom Image Creator to make your own logos. It is very good. If you want to make your own logo packs for any of the views in my theme, watch his video and then download the file, 'Retro Console Logo Creator.zip'. found on this page. All the files you need to make each one exactly are included, even for the custom platform views and the banners. How to make your own custom logos for this theme: Click Here (watch first and then return here and follow the instructions below) Once you get an understanding and are setup to go you can follow these instructions to make matching logo sets from your own collections for this theme: So once you open the logo creator file (that you got from here) in the community theme creator, you need to select the platform that you want to make logos for from the left panel at the top (3rd drop down) and then you will notice a long string of dots toward the bottom of the screen from left to right and centered just above the box that offers 2 or 3 options such as 'Theme, Platform and Game'. Use the following for each sub type of logo you want to make: Platform Logos: Use the first dot for these and select 'Theme' from the box below. (Put these in the 'images/Platforms/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Game Logos: Make sure to select the correct platform from the menu(panel) on the left. Then use the second dot and choose 'Theme' from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Custom Platform View (game logos): Use the same instructions above but select the 6th dot and choose 'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 3' folder within this theme) Custom Banners: Use the same instructions above but select the 4th dot and choose'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 2' folder within this theme) Now you will be able to make logos for your exact set of games using all of the assets that are in the ones I made so they will match. You now just have to select the Hamburger Icon form the menu at the top of the screen and then hover over 'Render Custom Images', now select 'All Games for Selected Platform' from the menu that pops out. Once you have completed making your set you will need to go and get that whole folder of logos you just made and move them to the 'Retro Console' theme folder in the 'Custom Images 3' folder with the others. Remember, each platform logo set needs to be in a folder that exactly matches your Platform name as it appears in your LaunchBox setup. How to make your own custom Platform Category and Playlist logos for this theme: (the ones I made are boring but they work and fit with the theme very well) Same as above except for: Make sure to select either 'Platform Categories' or 'Playlists' from the second dropdown on the left panel at the top. And then select the first dot for each at the bottom center portion in the editor. Once selected, click the hamburger menu icon at the top left and select "render Custom Images' and then select the appropriate option. Here is a video clip of all the new custom platform views: Downloads on this page: Retro Console Dark or Light V3 = The main theme files need. Just choose dark or light or both. Retro Console Pause Dark or Light = Just what you think, this is the pause theme for each version. Retro Console Startup Dark or Light = This is the startup and shutdown theme for each version. All controller button packs = These are meant to replace the ones I use with whatever controller you use on your system. Almost every view has these somewhere. Obviously just download the ones you want . To install just unzip to the following location: ?/LaunchBox/Themes/Retro Console (Dark or Light)/media/buttons/. Make sure to overright them. Sound Pack = Just the sounds I use incase you want them. Startup Video = This is the startup video I made for this theme. Enjoy! Platform original boot videos = These are short video clips of the original startup sequence for every platform I could find. They are used in only one view but it is pretty cool and nostalgic. All Platform named logo packs are for the custom platform views only. The ones in the screenshots. To install you must unzip and upload to: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 3\ Super Nintendo Entertainment System.zip Sony Playstation.zip Sony Playstation 2.zip Sony Playstation 3.zip Sega Genesis.zip Nintendo 64.zip Nintendo 64DD.zip Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo Gamecube.zip Nintendo Wii.zip Nintendo Wii U.zip Nintendo Switch.zip (still to come) Microsoft Xbox.zip Microsoft Xbox 360.zip Microsoft Xbox One.zip (still to come) Pinball FX2.zip Pinball FX3.zip Sega Dreamcast.zip Turbografx-16 Platform logos = All platform logos for this theme. (Required) Thes go into the following: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Platforms\Custom Images 1\. If folder does not exist please make one and remember if using the dark version to change that part. Platform Category Logos = These are for the platform category views only. If you use this view then you will need these for sure. Playlist Logos = This is a large pack of playlists logos and includes custom playlists like collections, etc. Also needed if you intend to use the category views in BigBox.

    ~ LATINO THEME creado por MarianS3 ~ Gente tengo el agrado de poder compartir mi primer ''Theme'' creado para Big Box llamado LATINO! con una interfaz completamente en español (de ahí el nombre ?) Cuenta con dos vistas de juegos y una vista de plataforma, no son muchas vistas pero le dediqué varias horas en crearlo para que se vea lo mejor posible y viendo hasta el más mínimo detalle hasta quedar conforme con el resultado final. ~ El Theme LATINO fué construido usando el Community Theme Creator for BigBox de @y2guru Recuerden desbloquear los archivos .dll dentro de la carpeta ''Plugins'' antes de usar el tema para evitar errores, dentro del tema hay un txt con instrucciones. No es necesario instalar las fuentes (fonts) que vienen con el tema. Espero que lo disfruten tanto como yo! Saludos!! ~ MarianS3

    ☑️ New version available with English interface ✅ Nueva versión disponible con interfaz en Inglés Les comparto un nuevo tema al que nombré ''MILLENNIUM'' en el que estuve trabajando durante un buen tiempo (y que mejor fecha para compartirlo que el primer día del año 2021) y que consta de varias vistas. En total son 4 vistas de Plataformas (o Categoría de Plataforma) y 8 vistas de Juegos! 3 de esas vistas de juegos son de temática específicas que les comento mas adelante. El tema fué construido gracias a la App Community Theme Creator for BigBox El listado de vistas que contiene el tema es el siguiente: ☑️ PLATAFORMAS (o CATEGORÍA DE PLATAFORMA) ✅ PlatformWheel1FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel2FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel3FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel4FiltersView ☑️ VISTA DE JUEGOS ✅ HorizontalWheel1GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel2GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel3GamesView NOTA: para poder visualizar la marquesina del arcade, hay que colocar las imágenes de marquesinas dentro de la carpeta ''Screenshot - Game Over'' de cada sistema, elegí ésta carpeta porque supongo que es la menos utilizada y me sirve para este propósito. Es una vista Arcade con una pantalla CRT con scanlines y con muchos detalles de información, la otra vista de Arcade es mucho más minimalista. ✅ WallGamesView ✅ TextGamesView ☑️ VISTAS TEMÁTICAS ESPECÍFICAS ✅ WheelGamesView NOTA: como ven esta vista está diseñada específicamente para usarla con los juegos Arcades, y el diseño es más bien minimalista y a la vez te da esa sensación de tener el arcade en el salón de tu casa. Por supuesto la pueden usar con cualquier otro sistema, eso es a gusto de cada uno. ✅ Wheel2GamesView NOTA: esta vista como es lógico esta diseñada para usarla con los juegos de micro-ordenadores, con un ambiente que da una sensación de calidez. ✅ Wheel3GamesView NOTA: por último esta vista que es más para todos los sistemas de consolas retro y actuales, con esa pantalla en grande para poder ver los videos de cada juego. INSTALACIÓN: 1 Descargar el archivo (.zip) 2 Antes de descomprimir hacer click derecho al .zip, elegir Propiedades, y Desbloquear (Unblock) 3 Ahora si, una vez desbloqueado el archivo, descomprimirlo y colocar la carpeta ''Millennium'' dentro de la carpeta ''Themes'' de Launchbox 4 Seleccionar el tema desde las opciones de Big Box, en Opciones → Vistas 5 Recuerden que pueden seleccionar una vista distinta para cada sistema y que Big Box las recuerde, sólo tienen que marcar la casilla ''Recordar la vista separada para cada plataforma'' que se encuentra en Opciones → Vistas 6 A jugar! Eso es todo y espero que les guste!
  8. I've cycled through most of the present day Bigbox themes and liked the "Unified Refried" theme best of all. So much that I created a video and upped it to YouTube. I need to re-index all of my rom sets when I have more time but have just about every major console/computer covered. Thought I'd share for those looking to try this theme out. Cheers!

    Here is my first theme. This theme was made almost entirely in @y2guru's theme creator tool that is my absolute favorite community addition. Very cool for people like me who love to design. Thank you for making this y2guru. My intention was to make a seamless theme that felt like a console but offered a very different feel than all the already existing and amazing themes found on this forum. I Hope you like it. Let me know if you need more logos but keep in mind i can only work on this once a week. Credits: Not sure where to start, I was mostly inspired by @viking and @Rincewind for their contributions and then i found the 'Community Theme Creator' made by @y2guru which changed everything. But most of all, credit should go to Launchbox itself and this entire community. I have used several things i found at this forum but most of this theme was made by me. If I have missed someone I am truly sorry and it was not intentional. Please let me know and I will of course edit this page. ALSO: @Wanderer189 has made a huge contribution to this theme in the form of several downloadable add-on packs full of clear logos for each platform. These include literally thousands of logos made for each Genre, Playmode, ETC. This is an amazing thing and I thank you for your hard work Wanderer. You are awesome. If you would like to get these logos for your setup they can be found here: What is this theme: This is a video snap based BigBox theme. Heavily designed around the use and display of video snaps. This theme has several views including one that offers a different look for each platform including handhelds. There is a large amount of custom graphics and logos and images and icons etc. Hence the large file size. Use the startup and pause themes to complete the seamless setup. All icons including stars for 'consumer ratings' and 'ESRB rating' are custom and included in the theme file. Use them all you want. I am using the nostalgia platform videos and these are perfect for this theme. I may make my own someday but for now these are Great. Available Downloads: Retro Console Theme.zip - This is the entire theme including platform and platform device logos as well as all icons so you don't have to download them individually. This does not include device logos, startup video startup or pause themes, collection logos, etc. Retro Console Startup.zip - The startup and shutdown theme I made to match with this theme. (screens below) Retro Console Pause.zip - The pause theme I made also to match this theme. (screens below) Platform Clear Logos.zip - Included in the theme download but also here in case you just want them alone. These were made specifically for this theme and there are currently 194 logos. Platform Device Logos.zip - Also made for this theme for the platform view that uses device images. Currently 122 logos. Collection Device Logos.zip - Made to match this theme for the platform view that uses device images for each collection i use. I can make more upon request. Collection Logos.zip - Same as the platform logos. Made to match so they can be used in this theme. Platform Categories.zip - A bunch of category logos also made to match this theme. Startup Video.zip - A startup video I made just to add to the overall completeness of the theme. Not at all necessary but here if you want it. Retro Console Sound Pack.zip - Again not required but here if you want it. This is what i use in the video below. Just unzip it to your launchbox sounds folder and then select it in BigBox. Recommendations: Set your Image priorities in Launchbox as follows - Cart Front ( add disc images to the list - this is used in many views in this theme) Set your startup and shutdown time limits in launchbox settings. (mine are: startup=5 sec and shutdown=3.5 sec) I designed this around the Nostalgia Platform Videos. You can use anything but those will fit and line up best. This theme assumes an xbox controller setup: A=Select, B=Back, X=Search, Y=Game Details and Select Button=Change View (not required) I also set the left bumper to platforms and right bumper to platform categories. (not required but helpful) Get as many Banner, Steam Banner and Marquee images as you can. This theme offers a unique view for all arcade cabinet based games and will use those images. There is also a custom view for systems like Windows that also use them. Future Plans: Create a new view that uses the original loading video from each console. (started on 1-3-2020) Complete the white silhouette console and controller images that are used in the startup theme. Add animations to the theme ( @y2guru is working on this ability for his theme creator as we speak and I will update once it is ready) Make platform videos to match this theme (maybe) How to Install: Extract Retro Console Theme.zip to your launchbox themes folder. This includes all the platform and device logos you need and will automatically use them. ( In order to use other logos just delete the ones in this theme folder) You can also use the startup and pause themes to add more of a consistent flow. Drop the startup video (if you want it) in the launchbox videos root folder. This theme currently has 80 different platforms and includes the matching device logos, collection logos, category logos and more but some of these have to be added manually through launchbox (sorry). I can not figure out how to make them automatic. Startup Video: Theme Video: Screenshot System View: Screenshots of each Logo Type: Screenshots - Startup and Shutdown and Pause Theme: Screenshots - Random and Extra Stuff: Screenshots - Platforms Views: Screenshots - Games Views: Screenshots - Other Views: (a few examples of the platform specific views)

    LV-101 is dark, futuristic and responsive theme. Theme uses custom device and playlist images (download the psd templates from here). 108 devices are included in this package. Should work well with 16:10, 16:9, 4:3 and 5:4 ratios. Theme was designed to use box art, gameplay screenshot and gameplay video. If you want to make changes you can download the Community Creator Tool Files. For view transitions I recommend the vertical animation, it just feels right with this theme. Requires a powerful system to run smoothly. Tried it with i5-4570t and performance was horrible. AllNightLong works better on older systems. Theme contains: Platform Wheel 1 Platform Wheel 2 Text Filters View Text Games View Horizontal Wheel 1 Games View Horizontal Wheel 2 Games View So not a lot, but I didn't want to make this theme as huge as my previous theme. Less is more, or so they say. Credits: @y2guru for the COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox @viking for the amazing platform videos.

  15. Millennium Theme View File ☑️ New version available with English interface ✅ Nueva versión disponible con interfaz en Inglés Les comparto un nuevo tema al que nombré ''MILLENNIUM'' en el que estuve trabajando durante un buen tiempo (y que mejor fecha para compartirlo que el primer día del año 2021) y que consta de varias vistas. En total son 4 vistas de Plataformas (o Categoría de Plataforma) y 8 vistas de Juegos! 3 de esas vistas de juegos son de temática específicas que les comento mas adelante. El tema fué construido gracias a la App Community Theme Creator for BigBox El listado de vistas que contiene el tema es el siguiente: ☑️ PLATAFORMAS (o CATEGORÍA DE PLATAFORMA) ✅ PlatformWheel1FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel2FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel3FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel4FiltersView ☑️ VISTA DE JUEGOS ✅ HorizontalWheel1GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel2GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel3GamesView NOTA: para poder visualizar la marquesina del arcade, hay que colocar las imágenes de marquesinas dentro de la carpeta ''Screenshot - Game Over'' de cada sistema, elegí ésta carpeta porque supongo que es la menos utilizada y me sirve para este propósito. Simplemente porque al colocar las imágenes de marquesinas en su carpeta correspondiente hay un conflicto entre la app de Launchbox y la app Community Theme Creator, es un poco rollo explicarlo bien pero simplemente pongan las marquesinas en la carpeta que les dije y listo. Es una vista Arcade con una pantalla CRT con scanlines y con muchos detalles de información, la otra vista de Arcade es mucho más minimalista. ✅ WallGamesView ✅ TextGamesView ☑️ VISTAS TEMÁTICAS ESPECÍFICAS ✅ WheelGamesView NOTA: como ven esta vista está diseñada específicamente para usarla con los juegos Arcades, y el diseño es más bien minimalista y a la vez te da esa sensación de tener el arcade en el salón de tu casa. Por supuesto la pueden usar con cualquier otro sistema, eso es a gusto de cada uno. ✅ Wheel2GamesView NOTA: esta vista como es lógico esta diseñada para usarla con los juegos de micro-ordenadores, con un ambiente que da una sensación de calidez. ✅ Wheel3GamesView NOTA: por último esta vista que es más para todos los sistemas de consolas retro y actuales, con esa pantalla en grande para poder ver los videos de cada juego. INSTALACIÓN: 1 Descargar el archivo (.zip) 2 Antes de descomprimir hacer click derecho al .zip, elegir Propiedades, y Desbloquear (Unblock) 3 Ahora si, una vez desbloqueado el archivo, descomprimirlo y colocar la carpeta ''Millennium'' dentro de la carpeta ''Themes'' de Launchbox 4 Seleccionar el tema desde las opciones de Big Box, en Opciones → Vistas 5 Recuerden que pueden seleccionar una vista distinta para cada sistema y que Big Box las recuerde, sólo tienen que marcar la casilla ''Recordar la vista separada para cada plataforma'' que se encuentra en Opciones → Vistas 6 A jugar! Eso es todo y espero que les guste! Submitter MarianS3 Submitted 01/01/2021 Category Big Box Custom Themes

  19. Retro Console - BB Theme and more. Custom Logo Version View File Advanced Retro Console Version 3. This has a more difficult and time consuming setup process but might be worth it once completed. The goal behind this theme is to make an entire eco system that matches in style, effect and overall feel. On this page you will find everything you need to build exactly that including the Theme itself(multiple versions), startup and shutdown theme, pause theme, sound pack, BigBox startup video and more. I will continue to support this for as long as humanly possible and will continue to improve or add new features as they become available but I will not be making any more new versions. My goal here is just to simplify my work time and allow this one to become the best overall. I also want to add a thank you right now for all the hard work from @y2guru. Without his Community Theme Creator, none of this would exist. There are several more who deserve credit for helping and contributing to this project such as @faeran and of course Jason for building the whole thing. That being said lets get to all the new stuff! I added several new Platform views for the ones I play the most. They are NOT meant to be exact in anyway, just meant to replicate each console enough to feel nostagic. I made logo packs for every single platform I have which is over 80 right now. This version of the theme will only use these custom logos. It is made to be specific to this theme and to match in style. These are avilable on a seperate download page here: Click Here Added a new wall view. Simple but sweet and clean. I cleaned up all animations and simplified some to make it more helpful rather than intrusive (hopefully)! New Controller Matching button packs are available. Added a new Banner location and created custom banners for those views. Several have been made already and are available on a separate download page here: Click Here Finally made a new Dark version for each and every part including the startup and pause themes. Also, finally figured out how to get the Category and Playlist views to work properly. (you can find the custom logos for those views on this page including the collection logos) You will need the following files: Game Logo Packs: Click Here (or make your own) Banner Image Packs: Click Here (or make your own) Custom Platform Logo Packs: Found on this page (each file name matches the platform name) Step by Step Setup: Download the Theme itself. There are 2 versions, dark or light. Download the startup theme to match, dark or light. Download the pause theme to match, dark or light. Download controller button pack(s) if not using an Xbox controller. Download the sound pack if wanted. Download the startup video for BigBox also if wanted. Download all the console specific logo packs. The files are named after the platform or console itself. (ex: for PS1 download the ‘Sony Playstation.zip’) This theme has custom views made for some consoles, listed below, and these are the required logo packs for those to work. Download platform logos. (these are for the main platform view) Download platform category logos. (these are the main logos for categories such as genres, playmodes etc.) Download playlist logos. (these are for all playlists such as Arcade Action or Arcade All Games, etc.) Download collection playlist logos. (these are for all your custom collections such as 19xx or mario or 007, etc. Over 1700 logos in here.) Follow the links below and download a logo pack for each console and platform you have in your setup or download my Retro Console Logo Creator.zip and make your own set to match. Finally, follow all the steps below to make sure you put each file in the right place and most importantly, HAVE FUN. If you need help just ask and I will do my best! Instructions and File Locations: (all logo packs, etc: are placed within the theme folder, you must install this theme for any of them to work) NOTE: in the examples below I am using the 'Retro Console Light V3' theme as an example. If you are using the 'Retro Console Dark V3' then please replace that part as needed. Platform Logos(on this page) : Please place these inside this folder: ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Platforms\Custom Images 1\ Custom Platform View Logos(on this page) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 3\ Custom Banner Images(found here) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 2\ Game Clear Logos(found here) : ?:\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 1\ Once each pack is installed you will be able to run this theme the same as it is in the video above. The custom Banner packs are not required, but the rest are. While using the new logo packs you may find that your game list is different or you just want to make some of your own. @faeran has made a video tutorial on how to use the new Custom Image Creator to make your own logos. It is very good. If you want to make your own logo packs for any of the views in my theme, watch his video and then download the file, 'Retro Console Logo Creator.zip'. found on this page. All the files you need to make each one exactly are included, even for the custom platform views and the banners. How to make your own custom logos for this theme: Click Here (watch first and then return here and follow the instructions below) Once you get an understanding and are setup to go you can follow these instructions to make matching logo sets from your own collections for this theme: So once you open the logo creator file (that you got from here) in the community theme creator, you need to select the platform that you want to make logos for from the left panel at the top (3rd drop down) and then you will notice a long string of dots toward the bottom of the screen from left to right and centered just above the box that offers 2 or 3 options such as 'Theme, Platform and Game'. Use the following for each sub type of logo you want to make: Platform Logos: Use the first dot for these and select 'Theme' from the box below. (Put these in the 'images/Platforms/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Game Logos: Make sure to select the correct platform from the menu(panel) on the left. Then use the second dot and choose 'Theme' from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 1' folder within this theme) Custom Platform View (game logos): Use the same instructions above but select the 6th dot and choose 'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 3' folder within this theme) Custom Banners: Use the same instructions above but select the 4th dot and choose'Platform from the box below the dots. (Put these in the 'images/Games/Custom Images 2' folder within this theme) Now you will be able to make logos for your exact set of games using all of the assets that are in the ones I made so they will match. You now just have to select the Hamburger Icon form the menu at the top of the screen and then hover over 'Render Custom Images', now select 'All Games for Selected Platform' from the menu that pops out. Once you have completed making your set you will need to go and get that whole folder of logos you just made and move them to the 'Retro Console' theme folder in the 'Custom Images 3' folder with the others. Remember, each platform logo set needs to be in a folder that exactly matches your Platform name as it appears in your LaunchBox setup. How to make your own custom Platform Category and Playlist logos for this theme: (the ones I made are boring but they work and fit with the theme very well) Same as above except for: Make sure to select either 'Platform Categories' or 'Playlists' from the second dropdown on the left panel at the top. And then select the first dot for each at the bottom center portion in the editor. Once selected, click the hamburger menu icon at the top left and select "render Custom Images' and then select the appropriate option. Here is a video clip of all the new custom platform views: Downloads on this page: Retro Console Dark or Light V3 = The main theme files need. Just choose dark or light or both. Retro Console Pause Dark or Light = Just what you think, this is the pause theme for each version. Retro Console Startup Dark or Light = This is the startup and shutdown theme for each version. All controller button packs = These are meant to replace the ones I use with whatever controller you use on your system. Almost every view has these somewhere. Obviously just download the ones you want . To install just unzip to the following location: ?/LaunchBox/Themes/Retro Console (Dark or Light)/media/buttons/. Make sure to overright them. Sound Pack = Just the sounds I use incase you want them. Startup Video = This is the startup video I made for this theme. Enjoy! Platform original boot videos = These are short video clips of the original startup sequence for every platform I could find. They are used in only one view but it is pretty cool and nostalgic. All Platform named logo packs are for the custom platform views only. The ones in the screenshots. To install you must unzip and upload to: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Games\Custom Images 3\ Super Nintendo Entertainment System.zip Sony Playstation.zip Sony Playstation 2.zip Sony Playstation 3.zip Sega Genesis.zip Nintendo 64.zip Nintendo 64DD.zip Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo Gamecube.zip Nintendo Wii.zip Nintendo Wii U.zip Nintendo Switch.zip (still to come) Microsoft Xbox.zip Microsoft Xbox 360.zip Microsoft Xbox One.zip (still to come) Pinball FX2.zip Pinball FX3.zip Sega Dreamcast.zip Turbografx-16 Platform logos = All platform logos for this theme. (Required) Thes go into the following: \LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Light V3\Images\Platforms\Custom Images 1\. If folder does not exist please make one and remember if using the dark version to change that part. Platform Category Logos = These are for the platform category views only. If you use this view then you will need these for sure. Playlist Logos = This is a large pack of playlists logos and includes custom playlists like collections, etc. Also needed if you intend to use the category views in BigBox.

  25. Retro Console - BB Theme - Startup Theme - Pause Theme and more View File Here is my first theme. This theme was made almost entirely in @y2guru's theme creator tool that is my absolute favorite community addition. Very cool for people like me who love to design. Thank you for making this y2guru. My intention was to make a seamless theme that felt like a console but offered a very different feel than all the already existing and amazing themes found on this forum. I Hope you like it. Let me know if you need more logos but keep in mind i can only work on this once a week. Credits: Not sure where to start, I was mostly inspired by @viking and @Rincewind for their contributions and then i found the 'Community Theme Creator' made by @y2guru which changed everything. But most of all, credit should go to Launchbox itself and this entire community. I have used several things i found at this forum but most of this theme was made by me. If I have missed someone I am truly sorry and it was not intentional. Please let me know and I will of course edit this page. ALSO: @Wanderer189 has made a huge contribution to this theme in the form of several downloadable add-on packs full of clear logos for each platform. These include literally thousands of logos made for each Genre, Playmode, ETC. This is an amazing thing and I thank you for your hard work Wanderer. You are awesome. If you would like to get these logos for your setup they can be found here: What is this theme: This is a video snap based BigBox theme. Heavily designed around the use and display of video snaps. This theme has several views including one that offers a different look for each platform including handhelds. There is a large amount of custom graphics and logos and images and icons etc. Hence the large file size. Use the startup and pause themes to complete the seamless setup. All icons including stars for 'consumer ratings' and 'ESRB rating' are custom and included in the theme file. Use them all you want. I am using the nostalgia platform videos and these are perfect for this theme. I may make my own someday but for now these are Great. Available Downloads: Retro Console Theme.zip - This is the entire theme including platform and platform device logos as well as all icons so you don't have to download them individually. This does not include device logos, startup video startup or pause themes, collection logos, etc. Retro Console Startup.zip - The startup and shutdown theme I made to match with this theme. (screens below) Retro Console Pause.zip - The pause theme I made also to match this theme. (screens below) Platform Clear Logos.zip - Included in the theme download but also here in case you just want them alone. These were made specifically for this theme and there are currently 194 logos. Platform Device Logos.zip - Also made for this theme for the platform view that uses device images. Currently 122 logos. Collection Device Logos.zip - Made to match this theme for the platform view that uses device images for each collection i use. I can make more upon request. Collection Logos.zip - Same as the platform logos. Made to match so they can be used in this theme. Platform Categories.zip - A bunch of category logos also made to match this theme. Startup Video.zip - A startup video I made just to add to the overall completeness of the theme. Not at all necessary but here if you want it. Retro Console Sound Pack.zip - Again not required but here if you want it. This is what i use in the video below. Just unzip it to your launchbox sounds folder and then select it in BigBox. Recommendations: Set your Image priorities in Launchbox as follows - Cart Front ( add disc images to the list - this is used in many views in this theme) Set your startup and shutdown time limits in launchbox settings. (mine are: startup=5 sec and shutdown=3.5 sec) I designed this around the Nostalgia Platform Videos. You can use anything but those will fit and line up best. This theme assumes an xbox controller setup: A=Select, B=Back, X=Search, Y=Game Details and Select Button=Change View (not required) I also set the left bumper to platforms and right bumper to platform categories. (not required but helpful) Get as many Banner, Steam Banner and Marquee images as you can. This theme offers a unique view for all arcade cabinet based games and will use those images. There is also a custom view for systems like Windows that also use them. Future Plans: Create a new view that uses the original loading video from each console. (started on 1-3-2020) Complete the white silhouette console and controller images that are used in the startup theme. Add animations to the theme ( @y2guru is working on this ability for his theme creator as we speak and I will update once it is ready) Make platform videos to match this theme (maybe) How to Install: Extract Retro Console Theme.zip to your launchbox themes folder. This includes all the platform and device logos you need and will automatically use them. ( In order to use other logos just delete the ones in this theme folder) You can also use the startup and pause themes to add more of a consistent flow. Drop the startup video (if you want it) in the launchbox videos root folder. This theme currently has 80 different platforms and includes the matching device logos, collection logos, category logos and more but some of these have to be added manually through launchbox (sorry). I can not figure out how to make them automatic. Startup Video: Theme Video: Screenshot System View: Screenshots of each Logo Type: Screenshots - Startup and Shutdown and Pause Theme: Screenshots - Random and Extra Stuff: Screenshots - Platforms Views: Screenshots - Games Views: Screenshots - Other Views: (a few examples of the platform specific views) Submitter cemfundog Submitted 01/02/2020 Category Big Box Custom Themes
