  1. Version 3.0.3

    1,880 downloads

    Ok, this will be the last and final version of this theme. 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. 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 matching button packs are available. Added a new Banner location and created custom banners for those views. Several have been made already and are avilable on a seperate 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) You will need the following files: Game Logo Packs: Click Here Banner Image Packs: Click Here Custom Platform Logo Packs: Found on this page (each file name matches the platform name) I hope everyone enjoys the new logos and likes this setup. It requires more work to get going but is a much better experience overall. This is what I wanted from the very beginning, I just could not justify the work in making new logos for every game in every platform. I have over 40,000 games in my setup and I have made a logo for every single one of them thanks to @y2guru and his recent addition of the custom image creator. What an amazing and fun addon that is! 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 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\ 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. Instructions: (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.

  3. Decided to rewrite the Editor in WPF (from winforms) and as you'll see the benefits of doing so are obvious.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. Wanted to share the progress (slow progress) so far. I have increased the number of elements the end user can customize (more on the way), plus I modified the object placement and size editor and included the color picker. This video just gives you a rough idea of how this thing will work, my main objective right now is to replicate my PASC 3.0 theme using 100% end user customization with no coding, once I achieve this then I will demonstrate how easy it will be to simply import new images, videos etc.. and build your own theme with no XAML coding.
  7. 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.
  8. Still making changes to PASC, adding more user customization elements. The focus this past weekend was to allow the user to choose where they wanted the scroll text to be positioned, such as .. Top of Screen/Bottom of Screen or Top of Video/Bottom of video, feel free to checkout the following YouTube link to see it in action

  13. Hello all! This is my first time doing anything in xaml or skinning anything, for that matter, but I've started making a new theme for Big Box after watching Jason's videos and poking around in a few files from other themes to see how they work. This theme is inspired by Kodi 17's new default theme, Estuary, so I call it Estibox. I only have a few views at the moment, but I may add more soon. I've used Viking's excellent platform videos for the platform view, and all credit on those goes to him for his great work. Estibox is a 16:9 theme so I'm not sure how it will look in other aspect ratios like 4:3 as I have no way of testing them. Here are the views I've skinned so far: Platform Wheel 2 Text LIst (games) Vertical Wheel 1 I do have a couple questions if anyone can help. First, is it possible to add a drop shadow under the poster and screenshot in the games views using xaml? One that would be applied for any such image in the view whenever it loads? It would be much less work than going into Photoshop and adding a drop shadow that way to every poster and screenshot, even though that can be somewhat automated with actions. Second, is it possible to adjust the size of the font in the text list in that games view and if so, how is that done? Thanks for any help! Any comments, questions, or suggestions are always welcome. I'll put what I have so far up soon once I make a few adjustments. I hope you like it!

  15. Niglurion's Cleanhardware Custom Theme View File All credit goes to niglurion!!!!! Everyone give him/her props and a round of applause. Since moving the forum i thought it would be nice to put the custom themes in the download sections too. Below is the OG post. Furthermore, if you are in the market for some badass background art seen in the post check out this link. http://imgur.com/a/QSqY1 Credit goes to niglurion too. Here's an update of my first theme: CleanHardware. Instructions: disable "show Favorite Games" and "Show Recent Games" in Option > Filters List in BigBox Use your own image for every plateform. You can download them on the Official LB Database or on this website. Changelog: 06/22/2016: added a relative path for "white-corner.png" added news borders (top and bottom) in order to avoid full height hardware images the hardware image is now centered (yeah it wasn't...).
