  1. Community Theme Creator for BigBox View File The Community Theme Creator for BigBox is still in development and should be treated as an Alpha build, however it has enough features in place that would allow you to start building your own Themes. (Please see Pyramids by @Rincewind) As I have no documentation at this point, please visit my YouTube Channel as I demonstrate some of the various features. http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCALHDoR8oQifl6sbIrdrW6w Installation 1. Download .zip file 2. Unblock (right click on the .zip file, select properties and click on Unblock) 3. Unzip where ever you like 4. Go to the unzipped folder and go to folder ".Install these fonts first to allow the demo theme to load correctly in the editor" 5. Install the 2 fonts (these are only needed for the included Theme) 6. Click on the "COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox.exe" 7. Fill out the setup properties (userid / name and location of the BigBox.exe ) 8. Enjoy! FYI. If you wish to design a Theme in either 4:3 or 16:9 or any other aspect ratio then simply change your windows desktop settings to the desired resolution and open the editor.

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

    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.
  7. Hi. Just want to know if there is any way to make bigbox play random videos on each platform, for example add 5 different videos related to super famicom and make bigbox play them randomly everytime you scroll on the platform? is it even possible? Thank you.
  8. 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. Hi, I recently built a new PC and was having some trouble running BigBox on it. While it runs fine within the app, it takes (what seems like) forever to start up. I had no such problem on my older, lower-spec machine. I timed starting it up a couple times, and I got an average of about a 2 minute and 20 second startup time, which used to be probably 20 seconds on my old machine. If you know a solution, please help! My PC specs: Ryzen 5 3600X EVGA RTX 2060 Running BigBox off of a Seagate Barracuda 3TB HDD Thanks!
  10. Hello I pretty new to LaunchBox. Just got it install it. I have done nothing to it. No emulator, no roms. Nothing yet. I am trying to get Bigbox running on a 12on1 cocktail machine and I'm looking for help since I cannot figure it out. I seen video on youtube of people running it on the same machine I have not clue how they did it. Sorry for my lack of knowledge with launchbox I will like to set it up just like this one

    *Updated12/23/2020 Not much has changed. I included some images that I use for my platforms/playlists view. This is a work in progress theme for Big Box Theme creator. It is meant for monitors in portrait mode with vertical game play videos. It is still pretty rough, but it's something to use until something better comes along. In order to use this you must also download the theme creator and drop this file in the my projects folder. There is a font to install in the fonts folder. Open and tweak and then publish to use in big box. Updated for theme creator 1.0.8.95 Arcade Overlays and Marquees can be found here. Windows Vertical Videos and Marquees can be found here. Pinball Vertical Videos and Backglass Marquees can be found here. I'm using this theme only for games that support a vertical orientation during gameplay. It is untested with standard resolution games and the corresponding media. I do have plan to expand this build for all arcade games at some point but I am focusing on vertical resolution stuff for now and there is a lot to do.

  12. Hey Everyone ! First Post here, not sure If I'm posting in the correct forum so let me know if not. I'm using BigBox for my custom Arcade Machine for a while now and I keep adding stuff and upgrading it over time. Recently I had the idea to Add Bluetooth on my machine, to be able to use DS4 and 8bitdo controllers on it for some windows and consoles games. The fact is I'm not using those controllers only for this Arcade machine so, sometime I pair them back on other computers, PS4, raspberry pi and more. My Goal here is to find a way to stay within Bigbox and Pair my controllers, without using the official win10 Bluetooth interface. The reason is, my explorer.exe isn't running when I'm using BigBox, to improve performance, boot speed and such. But without it I can't start the Win10 Bluetooth app. ATM If I want to Pair a new controller I'm Forced to kill BigBox, Run explorer.exe back, start the win10 Bluetooth app, delete old pairing save, pair again. And it's a PAIN. I had the idea to find a program/app that I could run over Windows game (maybe) to allow me to replicate what I can do just like the official win10 Bluetooth app. And then Just kill the app just like any other windows games when I'm done (With a dedicated Exit button I have on my control panel with an ahk script) But I CANT FIND any program, googling for hours and nothing. It seem that the only way to pair new device is going through the win app ABSOLUTLY. Any suggestion or idea is appreciate ! I want to find a way ! (English isn't my mother tongue) Bojak

    AllNightLong is trying to be a clean simple theme with little animation and stuff going around. Designed for 16:9, 16:10 and 4:3 screens. Platform navigation features banner images for 52 different platforms. Includes default playlist image in the themes playlist folder. Supported Views: Platform Wheel 1 Platform Wheel 2 Text Filters View Text Games View Horizontal Wheel 1 Games View Horizontal Wheel 2 Games View Vertical Wheel 2 Games View Vertical Wheel 2 Games View Background color: Change the background image/color. (LaunchBox\Themes\AllNightLong\Media\Custom Assets\). The default background file name is "default-bg". So change the backgound file name to this and it will show up in the theme. There are now 5 alternatives or you can make your own also. The only limiting factor is the text color, which will always be white, so white or very light backgrounds will not work. Credits: Theme was created by @thimolor Theme was created using COMMUNITY Theme Creator by @y2guru Uses Google Fonts: Barlow and Barlow Condenced Designed by Jeremy Tribby. Platform Text Filters View Screenshot uses video made by @viking as a platform background. This theme uses some of the device images from EmulationStation theme Tronkyjared (https://github.com/cowboyjeeper/tronkyjared). Many device images and system logos are taken from Wikipedia. @Crylen did many new platform banners, that are now added to the theme. Support: Support will be slow, sorry for that. If you run into issues concerning the custom banner images, please refresh the images first. Also please check your LaunchBox image options for fallbacks. I could not test all the platforms so there could be file naming issues. Special Thanks: @bundangdon @Retro808 @proghodet @Tromzy I received crucial feedback from these fine gamers. Without them, the theme would be less refined.
  14. My wife recently received some time off, and as such, I thought that it would be a nice idea to spend time playing some games together. The sort of games I wanted to play with her were multiplayer co-op games, where we could go through a story together and actively complete the game together. She's a fan of The Legend of Zelda series, so Four Swords on the Gameboy Advance, Four Swords Adventures on the Gamecube and Four Swords Anniversary Edition (DSiWare) came to mind immediately. Alongside games like Kirby's Amazing Mirror (Gameboy Advance). I also wanted to give Triforce Heroes (3DS) a shot, before being reminded that it's 3-Player only. We started with Four Swords on the GBA. I opted to do this through emulation because it would allow us to effectively play 'Split screen' while sitting on the couch and playing the game(s) through HDMI-out (mirrored) on the TV. For my purposes, I found that the ideal setup was to have two of the same emulator in separate locations from my usual Emulator directory for Launchbox (as not to mess with the settings). They would each be set up with separate settings (for controller input and any other quirks required) so it would simply be a case of booting them up each time and selecting the game I wanted to play. It works rather nicely, however of course this all has to be done outside of Launchbox/BigBox, because Launchbox does not support Multi-Console Multiplayer. This is a real shame as I thoroughly enjoy the ability to boot straight into BigBox and set everything up from there via controller input as I'm sure many of us here do. This got me thinking on how such a feature could be implemented, and I think I have a pretty reasonable solution: BigBox already has an "Additional Apps/Versions" option when selecting a game, as well as a "Launch With" option. I'd like to apply similar ideas here, with a "Launch with Multi-Console Multiplayer" option (Obviously it can be named differently). Technically, how would this work? First, it's important to note that almost all of work is done on the emulator-end, but it requires support to function in a front end. It requires some pre-requisites: In addition to current emulator support, LaunchBox/BigBox would need to understand Multiplayer 'slots'. I'll try my best to explain this: Right now, LaunchBox understands that (for example) VisualBoy Advance is a Gameboy Advance Emulator, because I've told it that's the case. What it currently has no concept of, is whether I wish to launch multiple emulators, and whether or not those emulators are all separate from each other and/or correspond to a particular player slot. So, continuing on with the example of Four Swords for the Gameboy Advance, this game (for multiplayer) requires 2-4 instances of a Gameboy Advance and the game to play with friends. What I'd like to be able to, is to set these multiplayer emulators from within LaunchBox. So under 'Gameboy Advance', I'd have my regular Gameboy Advance emulator (when I'm playing regularly without multiplayer) and 4 additional directories for each potential player. I'd have a directory set specifically for Gameboy Advance Multiplayer Player 1, another for Gameboy Advance Multiplayer Player 2, and so on. What's the purpose of this? Going back to the launch option mentioned above, you'd select "Launch with Multi-Console Multiplayer" > Select the number of players (the maximum could be presented based on the max players field). Let's say I pick 3. It would then ask me to select a console for Player 2 (We already know what Player 1 is using, because we've already selected our ROM/Console, so it would pick the emulator directory set for multiplayer slot 1 for that console). By default, this would also the same console as Player 1, however it should be possible to pick other consoles from your emulator list. (I'll explain why the ability to pick another console is important in a moment). It would then ask me to select a game (based on the ROM list of the previously selected console/emulator) for Player 2. If I've selected the same console as Player 1, I will have the default option of the same ROM/Game, or the option to pick another. Once Player 2's options have been selected, Player 3s options are selectable. Once the respective options for all 3 Players have been selected, Launchbox will open each emulator and selected game based on the respective slot. For example: I've set my Gameboy Advance (Multiplayer) slot 1 to: C:\LaunchBox\Multiplayer\Emulators\VisualBoy (Player 1)\vbam.exe I've set GBA (Multiplayer) slot 2 to: C:\LaunchBox\Multiplayer\Emulators\VisualBoy (Player 2)\vbam.exe I've set GBA (Multiplayer) slot 3 to: C:\LaunchBox\Multiplayer\Emulators\VisualBoy (Player 3)\vbam.exe and so on. The benefits of storing this information in 'slots' are as follows: - Easy to understand - Controller configuration will always be consistent regardless of consoles picked (assuming it's set up correctly on the emulator) - Sizing/Screen positioning of the emulator(s) will always be consistent regardless of consoles picked (assuming it's set up correctly on the emulator) So to answer the questions from earlier: Why allow people to select a console at all? Why not just launch the same console type automatically? Two reasons: Games such as The Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Adventures on Gamecube (and many others such as Wind Waker, Phantasy Star Online 2 or Pokemon Colosseum), require linking to other consoles (in this case a Gameboy Advance) to participate in multiplayer features. It allows for games with cross-platform support (usually online) to play with each other. Why allow people to select another game at all? Why not just launch the same game automatically? In the same vein as the above, due to some games require linking to different consoles, you need to be able to select the respective ROM associated with the console you've selected (GBA Bios for Four Swords Adventure, or Sonic Advance in the case of linking to Phantasy Star Online 2) Even if you're selecting the same console for every player, you may wish to perform a trade or link between different games, such as between Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Sapphire. Other ways to improve the idea would to be able to manually select the defaults for each game individually, or base it on something in the ROM information field, but I don't believe such a field exists yet. One potential issue some emulators may be compatible with multiple 'consoles' but only be able to be set up to link with 1 console type at a time. For this reason maybe a set of slots per link type might be a potential solution. So that's the idea, a long winded write up I know, but the concept is actually rather simple. If anyone has any questions or my explanation didn't help, please feel free to ask. There might be a better method of achieving what I am presenting here, however this is the best "Plug and play" method I could come up with from my experience setting some of this stuff up manually, while also giving full compatibility with almost all link types.

    Alright I had been working on these for a year now so this first pack is a whooping 1GB (blame my lazyness) and don't worry, other packs will come in the future and be much smaller in scale. I'll update this description later with all the games included but for now there is plenty in here, I'm sure you have some. Of course you'll need @faeran's amazing theme that you can find in the theme manager of Big Box or over here, you'll also find the instruction on how to set these backgrounds for yourself and don't worry, my files are organized to be an easy import Also in this pack, you'll find graphics with no backgrounds and that's because these are my own personnal addons to @Scratcher's already great contributions to this theme which you can find here if you don't already have them IMPORTANT NOTE: A few of my backgrounds use animated graphics as gifs which in the current version of Retrotastic do not show up, Faeran has already mentionned on forums that this will be remedied in a future update so keep in mind that games like Baba is You, South Park: Stick Of Truth and Cuphead will feel empty as a result.
  17. After having kids and friends play on my bigbox, when they search for a game that I favorited in the abcs, they say they can't find it. Then I'm like oh I favorited it so it's at the top. So my question is how can I keep games I favorited in the abcs and at the top of list?
  18. I'm having the following issue when using the Default theme in BigBox/LaunchBox 11.8: Scenario:: -I have a few games that do not have Video Snaps. --- Those games without Video Snaps, display the Start Screen-shot below the Box art image. -If I switch to a game that has a Video Snap, the Start Screen-shot is not displayed below the Box art image...as I presume is the correct action, and the Video Snap plays as a background of the whole screen. Perfect. The Issue:: -If I select a game without a Video Snap, and then scroll to a game with a Video Snap....the Start Screen-shot from the last game selected without a Video Snap, hangs out on the screen as I continue to scroll through other games with Video Snaps. Is there a setting to resolve this, or is this a bug...as it seems to be? Thanks in advance.

  20. I have a launcher for BigBox. One of the important things it does is wait for BigBox to close before executing some cleanup scripts. I seem to no longer be able to wait for the BigBox process to finish. If I call BigBox like this from the command prompt: "start /wait C:\Games\Emulators\LaunchBox\BigBox.exe" one would expect it should wait for BigBox to close before continuing, but this no longer works as it did in prior versions. I can only assume it is because it is launching BigBox as another process and closing the initial one that launched it. Can anyone point me in the right direction? Is there a command I can pass to force it to not close the initial process? Any help would be appreciated so I can properly fix my launcher plugin.

  22. In my setup i have a custom system added for commodore 64 covertapes. I thought it would be cool to have the magazine issues the covertapes are from as the manuals. So i added each issue pdf to each covertape as it's manual. Great. So if i view manual from in launchbox, they open as expected. I suspect because they're opening in adobe. However, When i try to view them in Bigbox using the built in pdf viewer, all i get is a blank white screen. This is only with these particular manuals. Any thoughts?
  23. hello everyone, I have a really amazing launchbox collection. I use it constantly because my home arcade machine in the other room allows me to stream my desktop to the arcade unit, and with the track ball i can use the mouse , once you launch games, etc, the controls of the arcade automatically takes over, so its awesome having launchbox, and bigbox while using this feature. the problem im having is i dont know what i did, but now none of my arcade game work. they launch , then it will say game over and close right back down to launchbox or bigbox wherever i was last. it also has affected my neo geo collection. Not one of those roms will run either. I dont know if there is away for me to delete all the arcade and neogeo games and then reinstall them over from scratch. If not i have 26,056 total games. I really rather install the somewhere over 4000 mame games, and the around 180 neogeo games. any help would be appreciated. Can i delete the entire arcade folder and neogeo system and reinstall them so nothing else gets ruined? everything else is running beautifully. im running mame 0.226. thank in advanced if anyone can help.
  24. View MAME High scores in Game Details - A plugin for LaunchBox/BigBox View File View MAME High scores in Game Details - A plugin for LaunchBox/BigBox Use this plugin to see a games top 3 high scores in the Game Details. Features Shows high scores for most games in your Arcade platform in the Game Details. After playing a MAME Arcade game that saves its' high scores [and is supported by the included hi2txt program], this adds a Custom Field called "Hi-Scores" to the game. It will store 1st, 2nd and 3rd place and appear in the Game Details when the game is selected. What's needed (3) files that are included in the downloaded zip file (the plugin) One file that is included in the Version 3.0 downloaded zip file MAME configured to save high scores Saved high score files (These are automatically generated by MAME [once configured to save them] in the "hi" and/or “nvram” subfolders of your MAME emulator) What it won't do Show high scores for games using emulators other than MAME. MAME does not save high scores for all arcade machines, so not all games are supported by this plugin. Contributors @jayjay and @JoeViking245 A HUGE Special Thanks goes to GreatStone’s utility “hi2txt”. This utility converts MAME’s high score files into a readable format which ultimately makes this plugin possible!! http://greatstone.free.fr/hi2txt/index.html Installation and setup instructions: Step 1: Installing the Plugin Step 2: Making sure MAME is set up to save high scores Installing the Plugin: Download the plugin, LB-BB_Hi_Scores_v1.0.zip, from the LaunchBox download section After you’ve downloaded the zip file, be sure to unblock it in Windows by right clicking it, selecting Properties, and clicking Unblock Open the zip file and extract/copy the "Hi_Scores" folder into ..\LaunchBox\Plugins e.g D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\ If you have previously installed “MAME Hi-Score Display - A plugin for BigBox”, you will only to copy the “HiScoreCustomField.dll” file into that same folder. Otherwise all 3 files are required. (Only one file is required with version 3.0) The 2 plugins will not conflict with each other. Setting up MAME to save high scores: Using a recent official MAME release – By default, plugins are enabled in MAME. You can verify this by looking at the “mame.ini” file located in the root MAME install folder. Open “mame.ini” and scroll down to (or press Control + F and search for) “Scripting Options”. “plugins” should be set to 1. If it’s 0 (zero), change it to 1. Next, open “plugin.ini” also located in MAME’s root directory and change “hiscore” to 1. If you have an older release of MAME, you may need to do the following steps. Go to this website: http://www.mameworld.info/highscore/download.htm and download a copy of the file hiscore.dat that corresponds to your version of MAME. The file (hiscoredat.zip) will need to be unzipped. Place the file hiscore.dat in your MAME/Plugins folder Open up your MAME.ini file in a text editor. In newer versions, this file will be in the same directory as the MAME.exe Press control + F and search for “Scripting Options” Next to the word Plugins, type “1” no quotes Next to the word Plugin, type “hiscore” no quotes It will look like this: How to use: Start LaunchBox or BigBox Go into the "Arcade" Platform Select a game, run it, then close it Now select a different game, then go back (poor man’s version to refresh the Game Details) If the game has saved high scores, they will now appear in that game’s Detail pane Depending on the BigBox theme you use, the amount of data shown in the Game Details may be limited. So you might need to go into Options, Game Details and deselect some of the Details. Be sure that “Custom Fields” is checked.
