  2. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox View File Here you can download alternative versions of the CriticalZoneV2 theme that comes bundled with every LaunchBox installation. 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. Available 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: How to install: Just download the version of choice and extract the archive into: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\” 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 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: Thanks to @SentaiBrad for creating the new Default background video for the BlueBox variant.

  9. Hi community, I'm looking for a best practice solution. I presently have a MAME cabinet with Launchbox and BigBox (best thing ever created since sliced bread btw) installed on a NAS and I run LB/BB directly from the NAS over the network. I connected the cabinet directly via Ethernet to get better speed. Some games take a little longer to load but overall the experience is great. I configured it this was knowing that I would like to either get more cabinets or devices to play my games in the future. I just purchased a new TV and plugged a PC directly to it. Now I have 2 Logitech Gamepads and would like to like to play my games through it as well. The issue I am having is that all the emulators in LB/BB have been configured to play with the controls on the MAME cabinet and because I'm sharing LB/BB on the network, the gamepads are not configured on the emulators. I'm looking for the best (and easiest) way to get this working properly. I'm also planning on connecting LB/BB to more devices Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Lawrence

    Update 7/2/2019: The SlimDX library was replaced with the SharpDX library because SlimDX hasn't been updated since 2012. Hopefully this will alleviate any of the problems with the plugin not working. @Jason Carr, @viking, @shro2016 and anyone else I missed. A few custom controls to add extra functionality to BigBox themes. Read the documentation included in the download. Install: Place GrilaBBControlsPlugin.dll and SlimDX.dll SharpDX.dll and SharpDX.XInput.dll in either LaunchBox\Plugins or the plugins folder of a specific theme Initialize: Open a new or existing BigBox theme in Visual Studio and add a reference to the project. Browse to the directory you copied the files to in the first step and select GrilaBBControlsPlugin.dll. Define: In any views you wish to utilize the controls, add the plugin to the namespace. Ex. xmlns:g="clr-namespace:GrilaBBControlsPlugin;assembly=GrilaBBControlsPlugin" Use: Use like any other element by prefixing the namespace defined in the previous step (a quick selection box should appear after typing the namespace prefix) and select the desired control. Customize: There are exposed properties for most of the controls that allow the user to customize their appearance as they wish. Below is a list of all available properties that can be changed: GrilaTime – a more customizable version of the built-in time control: • Any normal TextBlock options like foreground, font family, font style, etc. • GrilaTimeFormat is a string defining the DateTime format. Default is set to “h:mm tt” for 12 hour time with AM/PM indicators and no date. Set this however you wish to get the info you want. Good examples of DateTime formats can be found here: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8kb3ddd4(v=vs.110).aspx GrilaPowerStatus – shows device power status, battery charge status, and battery level • GrilaBatteryBorderColor – the color of the battery outline (default Black) • GrilaBatteryBorderThickness – the width of the battery outline (default 15) • GrilaBatteryCornerRadius – the radius of the battery corners (default 5) • GrilaBatteryProgressForeground – the color of the battery level progress bar (default Lime) • GrilaBatteryProgressBackground – the background color of the battery level progress bar (default #111111) • GrilaBatteryProgressMargin – the margin between the battery outline and the battery level progress bar (default 0) • GrilaChargeIconForeground – the color of the charging symbol when the battery is charging (default BatteryOutlineBorderColor) • GrilaPlugIconForeground – the color of the plug symbol when the device has no battery (desktop system) (default BatteryOutlineBorderColor) GrilaControllerStatus – shows the connection state and battery level (if wireless) for up to 4 xinput controllers • GrilaControllerColor – the color of the controller(s) (default Black) • GrilaControllerLightOnColor – the color of the charge level indicator lights when on (default Lime) • GrilaControllerLightOffColor – the color of the charge level indicator lights when off (default Black)

    Launches LaunchBox in Big Box mode from within Kodi - It will close or minimize Kodi, launch LaunchBox in Big Box mode and when Big Box is exited Kodi will restart or maximize, with the option to run programs pre/post LaunchBox. It works with Windows only. Features: BigBox Startup video and splash screen support BigBox Updater support Pre/Post scripts Minimize or close Kodi option Launcher Helper script version check Supports Kodi 16, Kodi 17, Kodi 18, Kodi 19 and Kodi Windows Store versions. Requirements: Windows PC LaunchBox Premium Kodi 16, 17, 18, 19 or Kodi Windows Store for Windows Known Issues: Due to Windows Store's UWA security restrictions, user must set a save directory under the plugin's Advanced Settings to a directory of the user choice where the plugin's ahk helper script and icon file can be saved. Taskbar will flash on Kodi Windows Store version (UWA) using 1.5.4+. Current workaround is to switch to Kodi non-UWA or to minimize effects, enable hide taskbar in advance options, remove Cortana search bar and change taskbar to black. Starting with version 1.5.6, due to windows security restriction on SMB shares over IP (eg. \\192.168.1.1\shared-folder\), the addon will produce an error saying it is not supported. Current workaround is to enable SMB fix in Advance settings to replace IP with supplied server name or enable SMBv1 on server and computer to allow NetBIOS name resolutions in Kodi. Kodi-six package is now required with 1.5.6+, addon will fail if after first installation of Kodi-six package dependency, Kodi was not restarted. Install instructions: Use 'Install from Zip' in Kodi and browse to the directory the plugin's zip was downloaded to and select it. Configuration: This plugin requires the user to set the location of their LaunchBox directory in the addon settings before first use. eg. C:\Users\<username>\LaunchBox\ PLEASE NOTE: THIS PLUGIN WILL PRODUCE AN ERROR DURING INSTALL IN KODI ON ANY OPERATING SYSTEM THAT CANNOT RUN LAUNCHBOX. SINCE LAUNCHBOX IS CURRENTLY WINDOWS ONLY THAT IS THE ONLY OPERATING SYSTEM THE PLUGIN CURRENTLY SUPPORTS. ATTENTION: WILL NOT WORK ON ANDROID (BOX, SMART TV, ETC.), IOS or MAC AND LINUX.

  14. Hey everyone, Wanted to see if anyone had any ideas about this: I've been looking for an option in Bigbox for how it shows game titles but not having any luck...maybe the option just doesn't exist. What I'm looking for is an option that appends the game 'version' to the title (which it does by default in LB desktop mode). I have rom hacks for different systems, and if i'm in Bigbox mode, all the rom hacks of a certain game just show as the base game title. I've attached some screenshots. 1st is the edit screen for a game, you can see the title and the version 2nd is how it shows in Launchbox desktop mode (by default it just appends the version after the title of each game) 3rd a sample of how Bigbox lists the games, and I can't seem to find any options that change this
  15. 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:
  16. 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?

    This includes Backgrounds, Logo, Pointer and VideoBorder art to create a "Visual Novel" & "Doujin" Platform/Playlist in the "Unified" Big Box Theme. Simply go to "LaunchBox\Themes\Unified\Images\Theme" and drop the images in the same folders found in this zip. Background images are in the jpeg formats for the newer 1.2 version of Unified. Hopefully someone finds this useful.
  21. Hey everyone! I was goofing around in Big Box just a bit ago when I remembered that the 9.6 update came out. I opened Launchbox and downloaded it, ready to get some new themes in Big Box. Unfortunately, when I open Big Box, after the splash logo shows the screen goes black. I can still navigate and hear my movements through the menus. Sometimes I can get a super low res image of some game's art to show on the screen. The problem is that the menu does not display on my Dell LCD running at 1920x1080. Thanks in advance for your help, if you need any other info just let me know!
  22. Aeon MQ7 [Preview Version] View File 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. 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 file. Choose Properties -> Click on “Unblock” at the bottom of the window. Close the window. 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 v9.4 to work properly! Showcase video of the Game Views by @pipes78 I like to thank the following persons for their indirect help to create this theme: @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.

    Here's my first (and probably last) Theme submission, if it wasn't for the work of @CriticalCid and his CriticalZoneV2 - BlueBox theme I probably would never have attempted this, but I had a lot of fun putting this together and now its time for me to focus on building my collection and correcting missing and incorrect artwork :-) Special thanks to @CriticalCid @keltoigael @eatkinola and @Grila Simply download, unzip and place the unzipped Y2Guru - Plain and Simple folder into LaunchBox\Themes\ Please read the Installation and Setup Guide.rtf located inside the Y2Guru - Plain and Simple folder. I hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoyed putting this theme and artwork together. Cheers, Dave

    Exit in PES 2010

    Hi everyone, I have a problem with PES2010 for Windows (on bartop), it is the only game that with the EXIT button that I assigned to the CAB, not only does not work but gives problems and can no longer return to the game or to bigbox . Does anyone know a method to fix the delta from this title to return to BigBox, or remove the EXIT function of BigBox just for this title so as to use the natural EXIT of the game? Thank you
