  2. Version 1.0.2


    Yahoo killed their YQL API on January 3rd 2019, which this plugin uses to get the weather data, so it no longer works. Until I have time to switch it to a different weather API it will remain broken. Grila's BigBox Weather Control v1.0.2 BigBox Control/Plugin 1/3/2018 Description This control will periodically retrieve the current weather conditions, displayed as a relevant icon, and temperature for the location you choose and display them in a BigBox theme. The location and display units (C or F) are end-user configurable. What this means is this: anyone who uses a theme that incorporates this control can set their location and display units to either Celsius or Fahrenheit by a simple edit of a config file (thank you @eatkinola for the help with that). I'm not sure if there is any want for this kind of information in BigBox (the idea came from looking at my phone's home screen), but the more options for theme's the better. Changelog v1.0.2 (1/3/2018) Added ShowTemp bool Added ShowConditions bool v1.0.1 (1/2/2018): Added ShowUnits bool Added ShowLocation bool Added ItemSpacing property v1.0.0 (11/8/2017): Initial release Notes This isn't a plugin that can just be dropped into the plugin's folder, it's a user control that theme makers (or anyone with enough knowledge for that matter) can incorporate into their themes much like my other controls for controller status, battery percent, etc. I've included instructions (with pictures) on how to get this into a theme.

  3. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox View File IMPORTANT: We have recently encountered issues with the background video plugin in V2 which causes BigBox randomly to freeze. We don’t know yet how often this happens and what circumstances triggers them but if you want to make sure to run BigBox with a maximum of stability be sure to either use the FanartOnly versions or V1.8 and wait until these issues are fixed! CriticalZone is a BigBox theme designed for the usage of widescreen platform videos and utilizes videos as backgrounds. This theme was designed for widescreen displays with 16:9 aspect ratios and optimized for a display resolution of 1920x1080. It will also work with other widescreen resolutions and 16:10 aspect ratios but it may not look as polished. Alternative Versions: - CritcalZoneV2 - BlueBox: A blue color variant of CriticalZoneV2. It features blue texts instead of green and has a different Default background created by @SentaiBrad - BackgroundVideoOnly: All Views, except the TextList Views, will only use video loops as backgrounds. Also available as BlueBox version. - BackgroundFanartOnly: All Views will only use Fanart images as backgrounds. Also available as BlueBox version. -> Use this version if you have performance problems! - 1.8: The original and now old version of CriticalZone. It's officially EOL and won't get supported by me in any way. It's just still here for archiving reasons. There’s also a red 80’s/Cyberpunk themed version of CriticalZone called “CityHunter”. It’s maintained by @keltoigael and can be found here: V2 of CriticalZone now features a complete new video engine created by @eatkinola which supports the following: - Multiple background videos and randomized shuffle between them - Individual background videos for all Platforms, Platform Categories and Playlists Check the “Guide - How to set up your own background videos.pdf” file inside the theme folder for further instructions. If you need a great source for generic background videos, than I highly recommend this YouTube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/dvdangor2011 How to install: Just download the version of choice and extract the archive into: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\” Go to the “Plugins” folder inside of the extracted folder and right-click on of the .dll files. Choose Properties -> Click on “Unblock” at the bottom of the window. Close the window. Repeat that for all 3 .dll files in that folder. Open the Options menu in BigBox -> go to “Views” and change the Theme to the version you just have installed. IMPORTANT: CriticalZone V2 requires LaunchBox v7.11 or higher! Known issues: - The star rating won't show up sometimes when you jump too quickly from one game to the next. - The description texts in all Platform Views and CoverFlowWithDetails Games View won’t fill the whole space of the descriptions box when you use CriticalZone with a higher DPI setting than 100% or a lower display resolution than 1902x1080. It gets progressively worse the higher the DPI settings and/or lower the resolution is. Thanks & Credits: Special thanks to @eatkinola for creating the new video engine and helping me with the star rating banners. I also would like to thank @SentaiBrad for creating the new Default background video for the BlueBox variant. Check out his YouTube channel were he continuous his RetroStyleSpotlight video series he once did for the LaunchBox channel. https://www.youtube.com/user/brad2008 Background video of the standard version: In The Deep - FREE Video Background Loop HD 1080p by NIZ.co (http://niz.co/wp/) Submitter CriticalCid Submitted 11/03/2016 Category Big Box Custom Themes  
  4. Hi there! I've been struggling a bit with Bigbox and I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction. I've cobbled together an Arcade machine using Windows 7 and an xarcade kit (similar to a tankstick) . My goal is to run Bigbox without a mouse and keyboard - just using the arcade buttons and joystick. I've struggled a bit with exiting each emulator - but I've had success by using an AHK script found in the support forums (pasted below.) It closes the game fine, but when I do - bigbox is not in the foreground of Windows (instead I need to click on it once with a mouse. My goal is to not use a mouse - but I'm not sure if this is a Bigbox, my use of the ahk script, or something I need to fix inside of windows. Any ideas would be most appreciated! Thanks in advance! ~4 & 2:: Duration=0 Loop { Duration ++ If !GetKeyState("4","P") || !GetKeyState("2","P") Break If Duration > 2 { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} break } Sleep, 1000 } return

    Version 1.0.0


    This is my latest theme and has taken many weeks of work to get to this stage. A big thank you to @eatkinola for his assistance with getting the video plugin working. The theme is loosely based on the Netflix interface and is designed to be a clean dark theme with an emphasis on fanart and videos. The plugin is included within the theme for the videos to work correctly. As with Netflix the theme is designed to show the fanart for approx. 4 seconds before then fading in the video. As the videos do not use the inbuilt Launchbox control and instead use the plugin I have found the experience smoother with the video option set to Windows Media Player rather than VLC and have not experienced any issues in doing this though your mileage may vary so if one doesn't work/stutters try the other. There is one platform view in this theme and 7 Game views. The Game views are clear logos vertical, screenshots vertical 4:3 format, screenshots vertical 16:9 format, horizontal clear logos, horizontal screenshots 4:3, horizontal screenshots 16:9 and a two row Wall View. The game details screen includes full controller layout for the various platforms (all major ones covered) and there is a template file included for Gimp GNU in the theme/images/controls folder should you wish to change the control images / styles. As always comments and suggestions welcome. Enjoy!

    Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! Original Post: JamesBaker has inspired me to share my own projects but I'm not sure how I'm going to distribute them. I would much prefer sharing them through the same method as James rather than freely available online for other software users to abuse without a Bigbox license (sorry guys). I have a handful of other cinematix I made (all 1st gen). So for now, here's what I'm currently working on: Original box:
  9. Version 0.2.2


    This is a loose port / interpretation of the Aeon MQ7 skin for Kodi. It’s one of my absolute favorite skins for Kodi and was a huge inspiration for my first BigBox theme: CriticalZone After @NJDave71 already brought Aeon Nox to BigBox I thought it would be time to bring Aeon MQ as well. This theme was designed for 16:9 and 16:10 aspect ratios and tested on 1920x1080 and 1920x1200 resolutions! This is just an early preview version that I built last September. Due to my new job I hadn’t much time to finish it up as an extensive theme like CriticalZone. I used the holidays to polish the Views that I already had as I don’t want to just sit on it any longer and I have definitely planned to add a ton of new Games Views to this, but I don’t know when I will find the time to do it. So for now just take it as it is and tell me what you think about it and what do you wish for potential updates. This theme currently features 4 Platforms and 3 Games Views. It also uses the Current Weather Control plugin by Grila. It shows the weather and temperature of a location of your choice. How to install: 1. Just download the archive and extract it to: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\” 2. Go to the “Plugins” folder inside of the extracted folder and right-click on of the .dll files. Choose Properties -> Click on “Unblock” at the bottom of the window. Close the window. Repeat that for all .dll files in that folder. If the "Unblock" button isn't there than you are already good to go. 3. Open the Options menu in BigBox -> go to “Views” and change the Theme to "Aeon MQ7". IMPORTANT: This theme requires at least LB v8.0 Beta-2 to work properly! It may run on previous versions as well but some features won't work properly with them. How to change the location and temperature measurement unit for the Weather plugin: 1. Close BigBox in case you have it opened up 2. Visit the website http://www.woeidlookup.com/ and search for a location of your choice 3. Go to the “Plugins” folder inside the Aeon MQ7 theme folder Path: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\Aeon MQ7\Plugins” 4. Open the “GrilaBBWeather.dll.config” with a text editor of your choice. For example: Notepad 5. Copy the WOEID from the website and replace the already existing ID in the config file with it 6. If you want to change the temperature unit from Fahrenheit to Celsius just change the “f” under Units to a “c” 7. Save the config file and you’re done Showcase video of the Game Views by @pipes78 I like to thank the following persons for their indirect help to create this theme: @Grila for his weather plugin @NJDave71 for letting me use his HelperControl plugin that allows horizontal scrolling text in BigBox. @eatkinola for his guide on how to add fonts as a plugin And of course everyone who was working on the original Aeon MQ skin! Known issues: - The navigation for the game boxes doesn’t work in the Horizontal Wheel Platforms View 1 - The available space for the horizontal scrolling text gets smaller the higher the DPI settings are on your PC.
  10. Been a few weeks since the last video and have made many updates to the Editor since then. The video will demonstrate the new features recently added but it will also demonstrate the platform specific settings, its a lengthy video and for that I apologize for not editing it down.

    Shuffling BigBox Background Music

    Hey! So I have my BigBox set up as a front-end for my Multicade, with numerous arcade titles to play, going so far as to add arcade music to the "Launchbox/Music/Background" folder so that it will shuffle through various arcade musics while the game screen is up. It works excellently and I even added album art and info for each game so it displays the song name, game it's from and who the artist is, along with a nice image of the game box art when a new song plays. To make sure the album art is retained for every song, I have each game's music in a different folder within the Background folder. It displays everything fine, but the issue I'm having is it's not shuffling the music, no matter how I set it up. Here's a better description of the problem: When I launch Big Box, it does select a random song, but afterwards it will sequentially play every song from that game (folder), before moving to the next game alphabetically and playing all the music from it as well. If I force it to next song with the BigBox binding, it will indeed select a random song, but afterwards will go back to playing them alphabetically. I have shuffle turned on in settings, but no matter what it won't actually shuffle them if I leave it sitting. It's annoying, as I want it to ideally shuffle every track together, while also retaining album art and info (if I stick them all in a folder together it will mess up the album art). Does anybody have any suggestions?

    Launchbox/Bigbox + MAME + ServoStik

    All, Lifetime license holder here. I am considering a ServoStik (https://www.ultimarc.com/servostik.html) which has 4-way to 8-way powered restrictor switching. It can be switched from 4-way to 8-way and back via software (command-line or GUI). I spoke to the guy (Andy) at Ultimarc who said the restrictor can be changed automatically depending on the game using certain front ends. I asked about Launchbox/Bigbox, but he wasn't familiar. Has anyone gotten this to work, and if so, how? As this post's title indicates, I'm using Bigbox to run MAME games, and I'd like to have the joystick's restrictor plate to automatically change to 4-way when playing games like Donkey Kong and Pac Man, and change to 8-way when playing Street Fighter, etc. Any and all assistance would be appreciated. Thanks, -Mike

    Silent BigBox Attract Mode

    Is there any way to totally silence BigBox Attract mode without turning off almost all the sound options? I like sounds when I am actively navigating, but I don't want them playing all day when my box is just idling. Thanks!
  23. I have been looking for the feature to select random game in BigBox since day 1. I have been following the BitBucket url @ https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/195/big-box-option-to-random-select-game# . I was very sad and upset to see this had been "accomplished" via the spin wheel feature. This feature does not work on my system, in fact if I have guests, it showcases how laggy it can really be. Does anybody else agree or is this fine for most people? I would like to have this ticket re-opened or a new one created to have this feature implemented. It should be simple, something that takes you directly to a random game with the option to launch it. It should be dependant on the page your on, like if I'm in N64, it should be a random N64 Game. I am not a coder, I can do basic shell scripting, but this seems like an easy feature to implement and the original BitBucket page was created in 2015 :O. I know there are many threads on this on the forums, so it is a sought after feature and would really make the biggest difference in my "day-2-day" gaming as I would love to start playing random games when I have friends over. (One thing at a time, but a feature to filter to only multiplayer games/one player games would be nice in the random games, but really, you could just select "next random game" if the first one is(n't) multiplayer)
  24. Basically, mixing a 4K screen and a 1080P screen doesn't work properly. On a stream, @Jason Carr mentioned I should take it to the forums and report it, so I have. What happens is BB actually displays BOTH monitors content on one monitor. If you switch both to be 1080P in Windows, reboot while it is set to 1080P it will work. Then you can actually return one of the monitors to 4K and it will actually work properly. If you have either monitor set to 4K before you reboot then BB will not show anything spanned across monitors. Thing is if you trick it in this way it DOES work properly! This tells me there has got to be something that can be done to make this work reliably. I don't really care to swap back and forth to 1080P and reboot every time I want to turn on my second screen with BB. Thanks for you time! Below is a video showing exactly what is happening. The video includes both monitors. The right hand screen is a 1080P 55inch TV so that is as high as it goes. The leftmost screen is a Vizio e65-01 which is a 65inch 4K TV. They are side by side in my setup.
  25. Hey guys. First post Have installed Launchbox and using BigBox on my HTPC with my two bluetooth Gamepads. They are working but they are "sometimes" too sensitive! Ex.: System 1 is selected, press down (short, one time), System 7 is selected, when you press up System 3 is selected!? The gamepads are working fine in any System/Emulator but not in BigBox. Are there any setting too reduce the sensitivity of BigBox's Gamepad implemention? thx pOpY
