    Nostalgia uses the amazing platform videos created by @viking to create a per-system theme; thanks to viking for letting me derive from and name my theme after his work. It's designed for 16:9; tested at HD but not 4k since I don't have a 4k setup. Please let me know if you spot problems or have suggestions. It relies on a set of plugin controls I created, so you'll have to unblock either the entire zip file, or more specifically the DLL files in the theme's Plugins folder (see below). Due to its reliance on certain plugin features, the current version of this theme requires LB version 9.4+. Bundled with Nostalgia are some clear logos from viking's silver ring set, along with a few extras. Also bundled are platform banners created by @Grila and @Omen. For the best experience (including CRT curvature effects for videos), I recommend setting BigBox to use Windows Media Player. Platform Views: Background as the current platform (from viking's video set) including a video playing within the arcade cabinet, TV screen, etc. If there is no video for the selected platform, category, or playlist, a random list of relevant game videos are played instead. If no vids are available, screenshots are used. Platform, category, or playlist details are displayed to the left of the screen. Game Views: Selected game is displayed within a platform-specific background. If no game video exists, the game's screenshots are played as a slideshow while the game's soundtrack (if found in your LB setup) is played in the background. If neither game nor screenshots exist, a video of TV static plays. Game details are displayed to the left of the screen. Filter Views: E.g., Genres, Series, etc -- in this view, a random list of game videos for the selected Series, etc. will play. KNOWN ISSUES: (1) 3DS and DS videos do not display properly. This is due to how they were captured, i.e., with both screens on these dual screen devices being squished into a single video. A potential workaround is to crop out the auxiliary screen from these videos and use on the part from the main screen. If anyone knows how to do this, please let me know. I think handbrake would work for batch cropping. (2) There are missing platform backgrounds. I tried to include the most common platforms. Viking's background set is quite thorough; please send me any requests. NOTE: Unblocking the ZIP file will also unblock the DLLs (e.g., Ao.Bigbox.Themer.dll and others) contained therein, giving your computer permission to run these DLLs. This is an issue with all plugins you might download from this forum. It's a Windows security feature. You basically have to vouch for a file before Windows will use it. I liken it to how a MS office document you download from an email runs in Protected Mode until you unblock it for printing, editing, etc. Below is the error you'll see if you don't unblock the file, as well as a screenshot of the solution.

    Greetings all, I've been a huge fan of the Nostalgia video sets that Viking and Dragon57 created and have been using them on my Big Box for a long while at this point. A few months back I asked them for permission and access to the source files for the playlist set and they generously provided them (to everyone!) I've been pretty busy since that time but lately I've been working on various playlist/genre videos in the style of the "Playlists" video from that set. Feel free to edit them as well. Thanks again to Viking and Dragon57 for making these possible. I've made a matching Clear Logo Set that can be found here: Current List: Ace Combat Armored Core Assassins Creed Baseball Basketball Batman Castlevania Contra Crash Bandicoot DC (Comics) Disney Final Fantasy Football Golf Hockey James Bond Mario Marvel (Comics) Mega Man Metroid Olympics Pac-man Racket Sports (same as tennis other than center screen) Sonic Spider-man Star Wars Tennis Wrestling X-Games (e.g. skateboarding, skydiving, snowboarding, etc.) Zelda

  5. Heya, it's me back at it again with my first ever theme collab for a Launchbox theme. Me and @faeran wanted to create a platform line of themes, with each theme resembling the platform feel and looks. But instead of having multiple themes like Coverbox (Which we will add eventually once we have all the platform pages changed into something unique) we want to make one theme that represents each and every system in it's best way possible. From their authenticated colors to their classic games all proudly showcased so you can show it off to everyone you like. We will keep you all updated of course with screenshots, media and more. And we hope to eventually release this theme for everyone to enjoy. Platform Themes: Default (Used for all the platforms without a theme yet): Atari 2600: Nintendo Super Game Boy: Nintendo Super Game Boy 2: Nintendo Sufami Turbo: Nintendo Color TV-Game: Nintendo Game & Watch: Nintendo Game Boy Nintendo Game Boy Color: Nintendo Game Boy Advance: Nintendo DS: Nintendo 3DS: Nintendo Entertainment System (NES): Nintendo Satellaview: Nintendo Virtual Boy: Nintendo Super Famicom: Nintendo Virtual Console: Nintendo Super System: Nintendo Wii: Nintendo Wii U: Nintendo Switch: Nintendo Famicom: Nintendo Pokemon Mini: Nintendo Gamecube: Nintendo 64: Nintendo 64DD: Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES): Nintendo Classics: Microsoft Xbox: Sega 32X: Sega CD: Sega Saturn: Sega Mega Drive: Sega Genesis: Sega Dreamcast: Sega Mark III: Sega Game Gear: Sega Master System: Sega Master System II: Sega Pico: Sega Naomi: Sega Hikaru: Sony Playstation: Sony Playstation 2: Sony Playstation 3: Sony Playstation 4: Windows: Philips CD-i Playlist Collection Themes: 00s Collection: 70s Collection: 80s Collection: 90s Collection: 007 Collection: Addams Family Collection: Alien Collection: Altered Beast Collection: Anime Collection: Arcade Collection: Army Men Collection: Atari Classics: Back to the Future Collection: Barbie Collection (was the most difficult to do i hate pink): Baseball Collection Basketball Collection: Batman Collection: Battletoad Collection: Beat Em Ups: Blues Brothers Collection: BMX Collection: Board and Card Games: Bomberman Collection: Boulderdash Collection: Bowling Collection: Bratz Collection: Bruce Lee Collection: Bubble Bobble Collection: Bubsy Collection: Bugs Bunny Collection: Bust-A-Move Collection: Animal Crossing Collection: Mario Collection: Metroid Collection: Kirby Collection: Pokemon Collection: Grand Theft Auto Collection: Sonic Collection: The Sims Collection: Crash Bandicoot Collection: Elder Scrolls Collection: Yoshi Collection: More will be added every day so keep an eye open and click that follow button!
  6. *** WORK IN PROGRESS *** Theme with games view that changes based on the active game's platform. Viking's platform video set inspired me to do this; thankfully he gave me permission to use his work, and to name this theme Nostalgia after his video set. Thanks @viking! I created a plugin theme element to facilitate this. Below is a sample view (still a work in progress); the GameCube game video snap is displayed using Viking's GameCube platform montage. Transitions between games are smooth even when the platform changes, so the plugin seems to be working well. The theme as planned will have one platform wheel view, one game wheel view, and the text-based filter and game detail views. It shouldn't be hard for me to finish the views. What I'd like some help with is turning Viking's videos into background images with appropriate cutouts for the TV, handheld, or arcade screen. I'd like to display the videos behind a "glass" overlay, with scanlines etc as appropriate. This theme can easily support all the platforms represented in Viking's video set; the hard part is getting all the backgrounds in order. If you'd like to help and are good with an image editing program such as GIMP or Photoshop, please let me know in a private message and we can sort out the details. If you can't help with the background images, please let me know what you think about this idea. I'm open to suggestions and will post progress in this thread; I will say though I'd like to keep the theme fairly minimalistic and focus on the platform montages. I'll post the theme for download when it's more developed. p.s. additional thanks to @keltoigael for letting me use his arcade font, and to everyone else from whom I might have mooched ideas. This is a great community.
