    Animated marquees I made for a handful of MAME games. They are all gif files, so add them as "Arcade - Marquee" Images in LaunchBox. They will animate if you are using the ThirdScreen plugin. Otherwise you'll need to modify your theme files to support animated gifs. Marquees: Daytona 2 Mad Planets NBA Jam Punisher Street Fighter Alpha 2 Spiderman

    I use the awesome Bigbox function to display marquees on a secondary monitor. For years I've been collecting high res Mame arcade marquees from all over the internet. Not all marquees are in 4K but many are, I've down scaled the resolution to max 3840 pixels wide and saved all in .jpg format for a good size and quality balance. This could be the largest high res marquee collection out there, not sure. Some game marquees could be missing. 1398 marquees total. Credits I have forgotten where I got all marquees through the years but I know many came from the legendary @Mr. Do collection see: https://mrdo.mameworld.info/index.php @ArsInvictus is certainly one of the providers as well. If you see anything you've worked on please let me know so I can tag you here for credits. Hope you enjoy this collection.

    *** Edit: Note that you can use this plugin to add startup marquee video support if you are using BigBox's native marquee handling. However, I recommend you switch to my new plugIn, ThirdScreen, for startup marquee video support because it also adds support for platform marquee videos and unlimited screens. *** Plugin that adds Marquee Intro video support. After installing the plugin you can simply place your Marquee intro videos into the LaunchBox/Videos/StartupMarquee folder. One will be chosen randomly at startup. Static images (jpg or png) will work as well. The marquee video will always automatically end at the same time as the main screen intro video. If the marquee video is shorter than the main screen video, it will loop until the main screen video ends (or until you hit a button to skip the intro). See demo: Installation: Unzip the file and drop the contents into your LaunchBox folder. Place your marquee startup video(s) into LaunchBox/Videos/StartupMarquee. You of course have to make sure your marquee screen is set up first in your BigBox settings: Set your marquee screen number in Options->General->Marquee Screen If you want the intro video to stretch fill the entire marquee, then set Options->Marquee Screen->Set Marquee Images to Fill the Screen If you have a cut-off type marquee, then make sure your screen compatibility mode is set correctly in Options->Marquee Screen->Screen Hardware Compatibility Mode. Currently this plugin does not support the squeeze 1/2 or squeeze 1/3 modes, but all of the following screen compatibility modes are supported: - None - Monitor Cuts Off Bottom 1/2 - Monitor Cuts Off Top 1/2 - Monitor Cuts Off Bottom 2/3 - Monitor Cuts Off Top 2/3 - Monitor Cuts Off 1/3 Top and Bottom

    This zip file contains tons of art source to create your own custom control panel art, specifically for marquees but also for anything else. It comes with a Master.psd, which has 300ish marquees for games with custom controls designed specifically for my set up. It's all split up in layers and should be easy to alter for your own needs. It also comes with separate psd's for different control panel configurations, so you can create your own based on the templates I used. I included fonts and lots of art source. Mostly pngs with good alpha, so they can be easily added to other images. Combine this with clear logos from the Launchbox database and you can make almost anything! I used this to create custom marquees for my home arcade that shows my own controls for every game I have available. It was an insane amount of work. I hope this helps someone out who wants to do something similar!
  7. Hello, I created custom controller info marquees that I want to be displayed on my second monitor once I launch a game from Big box. The custom marquee's are per console, not game. I am struggling to figure out how to do this. I have changed image priorities, refreshed caches, use default folder structure, etc. From what I can tell, Big Box wants to search for the individual game images. Obviously I could have a ton of copies of the custom images and rename them to each game but that doesn't seem very practical. So here I am.. Hopefully I am missing something simple or maybe it can't be done and I can just give up and stop banging my head against the wall. Thanks for the help!

  9. Hi all, BigBox won't display my marquee images for Teknoparrot games. It works for all other games / emulators. (actually it does work for Tekken 7 on TP, not sure why) This is huge for my set up, since I have marquee images made for each game that shows the controls. Here's a video of the problem. You can see it switching resolutions for the game, then the marquee goes black, and that's it. I'm not sure what it's showing there - my desktop isn't black. https://drive.google.com/file/d/1tyN00itSXpfJN5N4uXsVKW276BEKpZij/view A few things about my config: BigBox: In marquees, I have Ignore Theme Marquee Views - OFF Stretch Marquee images to fill screen - ON Screen Hardward Compat Mode: none I've tried lots of variations on those settings, but I don't want to break all 300+ other games that show their marquees correctly. System: PC build - i7-3770k, gtx 1070 ti monitor 1 is a 4k monitor. monitor 2 is at 720. Both set to display at 100% scaling Games DoA 5 Arcade (shown in the link) is set to run at 4k from Teknoparrot Other games like Virtua Fighter 5 Rev C don't have any resolution settings, so they run at whatever their default is (definitely not 4k). That one has the same issue. Any help would be great. Thanks!
  10. Hi all, As the title says, my Big Box digital marquee works very reliably with everything I throw at it, except Teknoparrot games. And even then, Tekken 7 does display the digital marquee correctly through Teknoparrot. No other games do, though. This video below shows the issue. I try to load Sega Golden Gun and the marquee monitor shows a portion of the Big Box game view instead of the marquee image. (it's confusing because the Big Box game view has the marquee image on it). To reiterate, this issue happens on 16 out of the 17 Teknoparrot games I have. They are a mix of fighters, racers and light gun games. big box digital marquee teknoparrot.mp4 This video below shows it working with Teknoparrot on Tekken 7. This is the only Teknoparrot game marquee to show correctly out of 17 games. big box digital marquee tekken 7.mp4 Here are my settings in TP for each game. There is nothing there for resolution or anything else that would seem related, and both games have Windowed mode turned off. Some info on my machine: Windows 10 GeForce 1070 Ti Both monitors are set to 100% scaling in windows display settings, and "no scaling" in Nvidia Control panel. My main monitor is 3840x2160 (4k) and HDR. My digital marquee is 1920x1080 and not HDR. I'm adding a few videos just to show that the digital marquee also works with every other emulator I've thrown at it (PCSX2, MAME, Cemu, Dolphin, Project64, Redream) and Steam. Bouncing between HDR and different resolutions for all the other emulators doesn't seem to give it any problem. big box digital marquee mame.mp4 big box digital marquee redream.mp4 big box digital marquee steam.mp4 big box digital marquee pcsx2.mp4 I really appreciate any help! I've been sorting out the bugs of this cabinet for so long and this is one of the last issues I've yet to solve on my own. I'll be happy to answer any other questions about my set up. Thanks in advance!

  12. 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.

    Create marquee images from Clear Logos (for use with Pixelcade™ LED Marquee displays) Pixelcade already provides numerous marquee images for many Platforms. But you may come across one or more that are missing. This plugin will create 128x32 marquee-resolution png images using your games existing Clear Logo and place them in your Pixelcade directory**, under the corresponding Platform folder. What’s needed: The plugin files Pixelcade software installed (including LEDBlinky) [https://pixelcade.org] ffmpeg.exe (used to convert/create the marquee images) [https://ffmpeg.org] (included) (optional) An actual Pixelcade™ Marquee display Installing: Download and unblock the plugin zip file (Right-click the zip file, select Properties and check UnBlock) Copy the contents of the zip file into your ../LaunchBox/Plugins/ folder i.e. D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\PixelcadeMarquees\ Setting up the plugin: The default install location for Pixelcade is “C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixelcade”**. If you installed it somewhere else, edit “pixSettings.xml” located in the Plugin folder. (Notepad can be used to edit it) Change the path (line #3) to match your install location. Save and close. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <settings> <pixCadePath>C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixelcade</pixCadePath> </settings> **Note: If your Pixelcade installation is located under “C:\Program Files (x86)”, you will need to have Access Permission to be able to save the images there. The plugin will check for permissions when launched. If it doesn’t have the proper permission, images will be saved to the "Completed" subfolder. i.e. D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\PixelcadeMarquees\Completed\ You will then need to copy them manually when done. The images will be saved to their own Platform subfolder as Pixelcade sees them. (Pixelcade Platform naming conversions are taken from "console.csv" located in your Pixelcade directory.) Example: if your Platform is called "Arcade", images will be saved in the folder "mame". Using the plugin: Start LaunchBox. Select one or more games. Right Click and select Generate Pixelcade Marquee Image Click Create Marquee Game Title vs. ROM name: In most cases LaunchBox passes the games ROM name to LEDBlinky (which in turn passes it to Pixelcade). But for certain games (namely Steam games [and others?]), LaunchBox will pass the games Title. For these, you’ll want to check the box Use game Title for marquee image. If the games Title contains illegal characters (such as : [semicolon]), the image will not be created. When selecting multiple games, if you check Use game Title for marquee image and click Create Marquees, if the game Title contains illegal characters, a message will popup indicating that game will be skipped. You can bypass these messages by checking Skip warnings about Titles with invalid characters. Special thanks to @megashub for coming up with the idea for this plugin and for figuring out how to manipulate and convert the images to make them suitable for Pixelcade™ displays. As always, questions, comments and suggestions are always welcome.

    Due to weird uploading issues again, the files are being renamed adding a bunch of numbers before the actual names of the zip files. The Fading Elegance v1+ is the last download (2102651409_FadingElegancev1.zip). The folder structure is still correct once unzipped. Clean, modern look. Designed especially for using on Large 4K Screens and TVs. All 21 views, including new marquees. If you like to grab a controller or two, hit the couch and jump in front of a 4K Big Screen TV, this may be the theme for you. That's what I created it for! Information Rich using very visible color graphic image icons for genres, play modes, max players/controllers (actual controllers are shown for the ones I could find). Lots of items fading in/out throughout the theme. The "Game Details" view has tons of info mostly in the graphic format, it's the 3rd screenshot. The 1st screenshot transitions into the 2nd screenshot. It can also show if the game can be played in Virtual Reality, Online, PvP, and more with some very simple setup. (Instructions Below) It heavily relies on video snaps for it's focal point. In most of the views, the videos will expand and retract when there is no navigation being done in Bigbox. Includes over 190 audio Platform .mp3 files and 250 Genre Icons (plus the Photoshop template to easily make more). If you don't like the Platform audio voices, just delete them in the Audio folder within the theme. Includes ALL 21 views (including the new marquee views). Some cool animations as well. The 2nd file called "Fading Elegance (Missing Video Snap)" was my original design see comments below Added a NEW version called Fading Elegance v1+ . It has fanart fade into the background and randomly changes every 5 seconds on the Platform Views and has the game's fanart that shows in the Games Views. See the last screenshot. Thanks to @MangaAddict for the suggestion. While I was at it, I figured I wanted some new sounds to go with the new theme, you can check them out if you're interested. I called them "The Mix" Matching "Fading Elegance" Startup-Exit Theme - (with animation) Matching "Fading Elegance" Pause Screen - (with animation) Download Platform Voice (Salli was used in the video) Fading Elegance v1+ - This is a better video that included the Start/Exit & Pause themes in actions as well. Fading Elegance v1 (Be patient with first minute or so, it's showing an example of how some of the videos expand/retract) Video for the Marquee views: I don't know how to over lap them. Instructions to use Split Screen, Virtual Reality, PvP and Onlne Play Icon features: To get the Split Screen, VR, PvP and Onlne Play icons to work in the theme is really pretty easy. Create the 4 Custom Fields below in Launchbox, just edit any single game in your collection and pick Custom Fields on the left panel. Copy-n-paste one of the 4 custom fields below and press <ENTER>. Then enter Yes in the value section press <ENTER>. Copy-n-paste the other 3 Custom Fields and do the same. Then press OK Now the fields should be ready and Yes is now a choice in Bulk Edit. Close Launchbox and re-open just to be safe. Then you can go back to the game you used to set up the custom fields and delete the Yes's if you need to. What I did, was to sort my collection different ways like genre or playmode. I had a genre set up for MMO, so I bulk edited all the games in that category, first I chose Play Mode, making sure they all had multiplayer added as a value. Then I said yes to make more changes, and then chose the newly created Custom Field: Online Play and just select Yes in the dropdown to add value. The theme will now display the animated globe for all those games in the views that use it. Do that for the other 3 Custom fields using similiar sorts. Of course any game can be edited manually as well. The custom fields you need to add: Virtual Reality Split Screen PvP Online I had never used CTC until about 2 weeks ago (amazing program, huge thanks to y2guru for sharing it and helping me with it). I'm still learning it and am still tweaking and tinkering with animations as far as timing and controls of them and to get them to work like I want. I wasn't quite sure how most Bigbox folks use the Marquee views, so I just winged it. Like maybe a pinball machine marquee? Ya'll can let me know if I got it all wrong. That is what the 2nd video is, just the marquee capture. In the orignal design, I had added a video that displays when there is no video snap for a game, but I could only find one way to actually make it work decently. I am glad I found a way to get it to work, but absolutely hate the way I had to do it. It slows the theme down a bit. Maybe there will be someone out there that knows a better way to implement it or maybe future enhancements to Launchbox or CTC will make it easier to accomplish. About 1/2 the time you might see a glimps of the Missing Video video during navigation. It's because it is running in the background behind the game video snap and sometimes it would show just before the game's video snap is shown. If you interested in trying it out, It is the one called "Fading Elegance (Missing Video Snap)". My sincere thanks goes out to @y2guru for sharing CTC, @viking for sharing his videos with us, the "Theme Guru" (@faeran) and @Jason Carr for getting the upload issues fixed for me! There are many more that do so much for all of us. Thank you If you like my stuff and use Kodi or a fork of it, take a peak at the skins I have done for it (mostly for kids) and maybe subscribe and say hey while you're there.

  25. I almost have my cabinet all put together, and the settings perfect. I run all my games from playlists, so my kids don’t get into anything they shouldn’t. My question is, is there any trick to assign playlists a marquee image on a second display? I have this set up with consoles and individual games, but it would be nice to have it for my playlists.
