    Do you remember neon lights from the 50's and 60's? (Yes, I know I am old) They were everywhere on about every store. The flickers, the sounds? With this theme I tried to capture as much of that as I could figure out how. All the backgrounds are animated as to replicate the flicker of a neon bulb of the platform name and device coming on. (the intro startup video I made even includes the sounds). Also has a second set of backgrounds that replace the neon city with a dark brick as optional download. I sure am not a graphics designer and can use all the help I can get . But I have attempted to create more glass looking clear logos, added lighting and reflections of the neon stuff and attempted to make the light pass through in all the info boxes I used best I could. Between what I could do in photoshop and CTC, this is what I have so far. This theme is the most extensive theme I have done to date. It already contains hundreds of xml files due to so much customizing of each view for each platform. (and this first release only has about 45 platforms and a few playlists). The file for the theme itself is called NeonSkyline OPTIONAL: If you would like to use the other backgrounds, they are named: BrickBackgrounds - Just dark brick wall Neon Brick Skyline - I combine the brick wall with the neon skyline to make it look like a mural on the wall. To change the backgrounds, just rename or delete the files in the ..\Launchbox\Themes\Neon Skyline\Media\Backgrounds folder. Extract the replacements and drop them in the same place as the originals I was planning on doing all the platforms, but I might wait to see if there is enough interest there before I spend that much time on it. It takes me sometimes hours to do a single platform (I'm old, remember ). Let me know in the comments what ya'll think. Watch the video, download and try it. BTW: Theme has most of my usual stuff (shows partial gamepad support like Steam, little popups for Completed, Broken, Needs Installed, etc.) and runs very smooth on my large BB rig, even in the Arcade platform on my older PCs. Only tested with 16:9 so not sure how it looks on others Sample Video: Startup Video (I have 4K version if anyone is interested) Startup.mp4 I forgot to upload the 2nd set of backgrounds (see the last 5 screenshots). Also forgot to upload the startup video.

  11. Colorful - Dark & Coverbox TV Redux View File For a long, long time I searched for the perfect Bigbox Theme to use with my TV. Every time I found one I thought was pretty cool, there were just so many little things that didn't sit right with me. Either it didn't have game descriptions in the platform menus, or the game descriptions they had were too small (I use Bigbox on my TV), or the platform views of the theme were unappealing. Well, no longer! I discovered what I thought was the absolute best combination of themes, Colorful - Dark by Viking for it's incredible platform wheel 2 system views, and Coverbox by Faeran for it's incredible Text game views (which have a unique look for almost every popular emulated system out there). Luckily, both Viking and Faeran made their theme's community theme creator files publicly available for anyone to edit, so all my minor (and in some cases not so minor) annoyances were very possible to fix. After months of on and off work, I'm very pleased to release my custom versions of both themes so everyone can enjoy them as I have. At the end of the day, this is a series of relatively minor and moderate tweaks I made to two already fantastic Bigbox themes, and all of that credit goes to the original creators of those themes, Viking for Colorful - Dark, and Faeran for Coverbox. Part of my hope in releasing this to the community is that they take notice and possibly implement some of my changes into the mainline releases of these themes in the future. The optimal configuration for these themes in my opinion is Colorful's Platform Wheel 2 for platform selection and Coverbox for Text List with Details, with any system not covered using Colorful's Text LIst with Details. That's the configuration this modification is aimed towards, but you can use any combination you wish. This release includes a changelog of everything I've changed in both themes, down to the positioning of the elements X and Y positions and their Width and Height. Since going through every change I made would be impossible in this description, Here's a list of the most significant ones. Main Changes Platform Descriptions in Colorful's platform wheels have had their font increased and their sizes expanded. This was to make the text more legible if playing on a TV, which I do exclusively. If the font were bigger by default I may not have modified Colorful at all. Game Descriptions in Colorful's game wheels have had their font increased and their text boxes expanded. This compliments the change from above. Personally I prefer the Text list with details view for any system Coverbox doesn't cover, but the others are usable. Text Scrollers for Game Descriptions has been added to every platform theme in Coverbox that didn't already have one except for the Atari Lynx, Nintendo Virtual Boy and the Famicom Disk System. Each systems Text Scrollers have been given fonts that are related to that system in some way (I did reuse some of them though). For instance, Sega Genesis uses the HUD font from Sonic the Hedgehog, Game Boy Advance uses the Gen 3 Pokemon font, etc. Coverbox Text Scrollers that were too small had their fonts increased. The biggest beneficiary of this change was PSP, that font was TINY and impossible to read on a television. This change was also made to the Wii and the Wii U Background elements have been erased and replaced with modifiable image placements to make room for text scrollers, which makes them editable for those looking to make their own changes. I have included a complete changelog documenting every change I made to both Colorful - Dark and Coverbox, as well as included the logos and fonts I found and created for use in this modification, both of which can also be downloaded here if you want to revert any of my changes or recreate them in some way. If you like what you see, make sure to show your support to Viking and Faeran on their respective theme pages, they created two incredible Bigbox themes and are the ones that deserve most of the credit. I hope you enjoy my changes! Submitter AncientCarthage Submitted 12/06/2022 Category Custom Themes

    I wanted to change the theme to a more Retro look in Version 4. See changelogs and last few screenshots. I will only be going forward with the two v4 version as it has been to much to keep up with all the versions. I will try to update most of the screenshots soon. I plan on adding vertical and coverflow views soon. I'll leave v3 online as they look quite a bit different.

Also extra ones in a folder named "unused" and a psd template added Partial Gamepad badge support like Steam does (add a custom field in LB named "Partial Gamepad Support" with a value of "Yes") - dll file below displays nice little message when no game notes are present (see screenshot 5) displays colorful "No Video image" when no game video is present in the bezel ability to choose scratches & smudges on game videos (delete "Scratches.png" file in ..\Themes\Simple Desktop v3 (light)\Media\Overlays) font changes for better visibility colorful 3 second popup for games marked as Completed, Broken or Not Installed in Horizonal & Wall views (see screenshot 7,8,9) Audio announces 200+ Platforms New matching neon "Startup" videos Clean, with a modern look. Works well with all the screen sizes I have been able to test, including large screens and 4K TVs. Responsive and simple, thus "Simple Touch". I needed this for a A-I-O Touch Screen PC I will be installing in a false wall soon. I'll be doing a home remodeling project soon and thought a touch screen jukebox in the wall would be a cool look. I found a great deal on a Lenovo 700 22ish touchscreen on ebay and have been setting it all up before I start the remodel. I wanted to create a BB theme with a similar look to the Jukebox (media center) software I put on the PC.

  15. I have hundreds of old games, such as Amstrad CPC, where some are just collections within the one ROM (e.g. "3D Fight & Balle de Match & Eden Blues & Panzadrome & Roller Ball & Scrounch" or "3D Grand Prix & Who Dares Win 2"). I'm thinking I could just delete them all, as I hate that a lot of these don't match in the database and/or have no artwork. I thought I'd reach out here first to see if anyone has any innovative solutions before I do this.
  16. Simple Touch & Simple Desktop View File I wanted to change the theme to a more Retro look in Version 4. See changelog and last 4-5 screenshots. I will be updating Simple Touch to match Simple Desktop and will leave the v3 online, but to much to keep up with the dark versions.

  17. I've got LauchBox Premium. I've also got a 'Retro Achievements' which used to work in the past, as I've got 200 points or whatever (which may have been before installing Launch Box - can't remember). I tried playing a few NES games using NEStopia through LB, hit a few achievements, but I'm not seeing it in either RA or, subsequently, Launch Box. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

  21. Arcade Cabinet Big Font View File Hello, Here my first Big Box Theme release, mainly focusing on Big font, big wheel, big everything. Typical use for Arcade Cabinet with CRT television. But should work on any type or size. I have 2 types of vertical view for wheel. One with image and the other with video selection. Image Vertical view for wheel are for sure more safe for slow CPU. In my case I run a Core Duo only and normal video from emumovie are working fine. The full theme video at the other hand are barely ok. Note : To use normal video rather theme video I just rename the folder of theme video to make sure BB don't find it and use normal video. Thanks to Thimolor, i started my theme base on LV-101 Submitter patrickfx Submitted 10/25/2020 Category Big Box Custom Themes
