    McFilmMakers Cinematix

    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:
  2. To quickly get to the point: I have an ultrawide monitor. 21:9 aspect ratio, 3440x1440 resolution. It's a great monitor, I love it. But, it's not a very common aspect ratio (certainly not in the emulator world) and thus things get a bit annoying. Launchbox, bigbox, emulators etc. etc. all work fine on this screen (or at the very least a lot better than Hyperspin), that's not the problem. The thing is, pretty much all media files are in a 16:9 format. I see a cool video-collection in the downloads section; arg, 16:9. I see a cool set of backgrounds; arg 16:9. I don't have the skill nor the time to start creating piles upon piles of my own 21:9 media, so I'm wondering if it's possible to force BigBox in a 16:9 aspect ratio (thus with black bars on the sides in my case). I'm not 100% sure if it would look better at 16:9 or not (in my personal opinion of course), but that's what I would like to find out. Forcing bigbox to 16:9 on my 21:9 screen instead of creating 21:9 media would have the added benefit though that if I were to take my launchbox installation (which is on an external hdd) to another pc which has a normal 16:9 monitor it would still look fine instead of having stretched out media. So... Any thoughts on this? Any idea how (or if) I can force bigbox in 16:9? Thanks!
  3. A few changes to the editor UI and a ton of changes under the covers. XAML performance is holding steady with over 150 dynamic variables in play.

    Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! My work blends a few influences relevant to the platform while showcasing the machine itself along with the games the platform ran: 1) Music made using sounds available on the platform (where possible) 2) The platform's boot screen (if possible) 3) Commercial influences usually in the form of the platform's marketing jingle. 4) The platform's packaging. In this way, the platform video itself gives an accurate interpretation of what the platform is, was marketed as, and what it looked and sounded like. In this video, the beginning displays the NTSC box design that expands into the PAL version to display game play.

    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!

  11. 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)
  12. I'm running LaunchBox 6.12, MAME 0.178, and CPWizard 2.42. When using just MAME and CPWizard, everything seems to be going smoothly. I can push the CPWizard show key and it displays the control panel with buttons labelled for the game I'm playing. If I launch MAME via BigBox, I have two problems: Whlie playing the game, if I push the CPWizard show key, it does show the control panel, but it also has a strange little Window dialog with the title of CiceroUIWndFrame but no content. The mouse is hidden so I can't really interact with it. When I exit MAME, there is a white square stuck in BigBox. See attached screenshot. When I exit BigBox, the square goes away. Has anyone else successfully used CPWizard with BigBox?
  13. Decided to create and post another video to demonstrate a little more of the Theme Editor but focusing on the Video positioning and sizing, I threw in the scroll text positioning for good measure. I have only skimmed the surface on what this editor does so far and it will do much much more in the coming weeks.

    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?

    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!

  21. 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.

  23. 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
