    WoodPanels has the old school retro feel of playing games on an old TV in a room with bad, green carpeting, but golden wooden paneled walls. The video game console or platform appears above or beside the television to match that look and feel. It is paired with a set of 8-bit fonts to complete the experience. Designed for 16:9 screens on a 1080p monitor (need feedback on different resolutions) Platform navigation features device images for 40 platforms. Games list view features device images for 40 platforms with support for game videos, game 3D/2D box art, game cart images (SNES, N64, Genesis, 32X, and Jaguar only). Consoles are paired with one of four different TVs from the same decade they were released (70s, 80s, 90s, 00s) "Wall View" for looking at game boxes on shelves is accompanied by the platform logo and image of the original console packaging. WoodPanels Startup Video is here! Alternate all-wood background available below, just unzip it under Launchbox/Themes/ and overwrite the default one. Trailer: Instructions: 1. Unzip in LaunchBox/Themes/WoodPanels. In BigBox under Options>Views>Theme> choose "WoodPanels" 2. To ensure you're viewing the image of the console and TV alongside the game list, go into the BigBox Menu (hit Esc on your keyboard or back on your controller) and select "View Platforms". 3. To view the carousel of devices in your platform view, go into Options>Views>Platform List View> and select "Platform Wheel 1". 4. Lastly, to make sure you keep this view the next time you start BigBox, go into Options>Views>Default Startup View> and select "Platforms". 5. For N64, SNES, Jaguar, Genesis, and Sega 32X, you need to download the game cart images AND you need to set your LaunchBox settings so your fallback images are disabled for this, otherwise when you have a missing game cart image it will pull something else and look...bad. LaunchBox Options>Legacy>Images>Cart Front Priorities>Uncheck all but "Cart - Front" 6. To enable a the "Wall View", change BigBox Options>Views>Games List View>Wall View. Switch it back to "Text List with Details" if you decide to go back. To Do: Need to add MSX platform device image, gameslistview, box PS1 gameslist image missing power light Super Nintendo gameslist image missing power light Nintendo 64 gameslist image missing power light Dreamcast gameslist image missing power light 3DO device image doesn't match gameslist or box images Commodore Amiga device image doesn't match gameslist or box images NeoGeo portable color device image doesn't match box or gamelist image Sega CD box doesn't match gameslist or device image PS1 box image doesn't match gameslist image
  2. AllNightLong View File 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. Submitter thimolor Submitted 05/19/2020 Category Big Box Custom Themes

  6. 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.

  8. LV-101 View File LV-101 is dark, futuristic and responsive theme. Theme uses custom device and playlist images (download the psd templates from here). 108 devices are included in this package. Should work well with 16:10, 16:9, 4:3 and 5:4 ratios. Theme was designed to use box art, gameplay screenshot and gameplay video. If you want to make changes you can download the Community Creator Tool Files. For view transitions I recommend the vertical animation, it just feels right with this theme. Requires a powerful system to run smoothly. Tried it with i5-4570t and performance was horrible. AllNightLong works better on older systems. Theme contains: Platform Wheel 1 Platform Wheel 2 Text Filters View Text Games View Horizontal Wheel 1 Games View Horizontal Wheel 2 Games View So not a lot, but I didn't want to make this theme as huge as my previous theme. Less is more, or so they say. Credits: @y2guru for the COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox @viking for the amazing platform videos.

  9. Version 2.0

    210 downloads

    Les comparto un nuevo tema al que nombré ''MILLENNIUM'' en el que estuve trabajando durante un buen tiempo (y que mejor fecha para compartirlo que el primer día del año 2021) y que consta de varias vistas. En total son 4 vistas de Plataformas (o Categoría de Plataforma) y 8 vistas de Juegos! 3 de esas vistas de juegos son de temática específicas que les comento mas adelante. El tema fué construido gracias a la App Community Theme Creator for BigBox El listado de vistas que contiene el tema es el siguiente: ☑️ PLATAFORMAS (o CATEGORÍA DE PLATAFORMA) ✅ PlatformWheel1FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel2FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel3FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel4FiltersView ☑️ VISTA DE JUEGOS ✅ HorizontalWheel1GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel2GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel3GamesView NOTA: para poder visualizar la marquesina del arcade, hay que colocar las imágenes de marquesinas dentro de la carpeta ''Screenshot - Game Over'' de cada sistema, elegí ésta carpeta porque supongo que es la menos utilizada y me sirve para este propósito. Simplemente porque al colocar las imágenes de marquesinas en su carpeta correspondiente hay un conflicto entre la app de Launchbox y la app Community Theme Creator, es un poco rollo explicarlo bien pero simplemente pongan las marquesinas en la carpeta que les dije y listo. Es una vista Arcade con una pantalla CRT con scanlines y con muchos detalles de información, la otra vista de Arcade es mucho más minimalista. ✅ WallGamesView ✅ TextGamesView ☑️ VISTAS TEMÁTICAS ESPECÍFICAS ✅ WheelGamesView NOTA: como ven esta vista está diseñada específicamente para usarla con los juegos Arcades, y el diseño es más bien minimalista y a la vez te da esa sensación de tener el arcade en el salón de tu casa. Por supuesto la pueden usar con cualquier otro sistema, eso es a gusto de cada uno. ✅ Wheel2GamesView NOTA: esta vista como es lógico esta diseñada para usarla con los juegos de micro-ordenadores, con un ambiente que da una sensación de calidez. ✅ Wheel3GamesView NOTA: por último esta vista que es más para todos los sistemas de consolas retro y actuales, con esa pantalla en grande para poder ver los videos de cada juego. INSTALACIÓN: 1 Descargar el archivo (.zip) 2 Antes de descomprimir hacer click derecho al .zip, elegir Propiedades, y Desbloquear (Unblock) 3 Ahora si, una vez desbloqueado el archivo, descomprimirlo y colocar la carpeta ''Millennium'' dentro de la carpeta ''Themes'' de Launchbox 4 Seleccionar el tema desde las opciones de Big Box, en Opciones → Vistas 5 Recuerden que pueden seleccionar una vista distinta para cada sistema y que Big Box las recuerde, sólo tienen que marcar la casilla ''Recordar la vista separada para cada plataforma'' que se encuentra en Opciones → Vistas 6 A jugar! Eso es todo y espero que les guste!
  10. Unified View File This theme is a port of the HyperSpin Unified Widescreen Megatheme project, which was originally started by gibbawho and continued by many other talented artists over the years. It’s supposed to bring a unified look (hence the name) across all platforms while giving every platform it’s own individual touch. I’ve tried to stay very close to the original look and feel but also took some creative freedom, especially when it comes to the new fading info panel at the bottom of the screen. This theme was designed for 16:9 screens and display resolutions only. Big Box will automatically scale itself to a 16:9 aspect ratio when you use a different aspect ratio on your machine. Features: Individual Artwork for a lot of different platforms and playlists + some alternatives you can choose from Matches with the Unified platform video set from EmuMovies Fully animated wheel pointer Spinning discs for disc-based platforms Various other custom animations Templates to build your own platform artwork are included as .psd files Brings a small taste of the HyperSpin feeling to your Big Box setup Currently featured Views: Games Text List View: 3D Box Games Vertical Wheel View 1: 3D Box Games Vertical Wheel View 2: 3D Box + static cart/disc Games Vertical Wheel View 3: 3D Box + rotating disc Games Vertical Wheel View 4: Fullscreen video Platform Vertical Wheel View 1: Fullscreen video + scrolling text Platform Vertical Wheel View 2: Fullscreen video without scrolling text More Views are planned, so stay tuned. The theme includes artwork for the following 498 Platforms/Playlists: The theme will also display a default artwork for Platforms/Playlists which are not yet covered or wrongly named. How to install: This theme only works on LaunchBox version 9.4 or higher! Just download the archive and extract it to: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\” Go to the “Plugins” folder inside of the extracted folder and right-click on 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. Open the Options menu in Big Box -> go to “Views” and change the Theme to "Unified". Change the “Games List View” and “Platforms List View” to one of the currently featured Views that are listed above. Make sure that in the Big Box Options -> Views –> “Show Games List Title” is enabled. Info: Never rename the theme folder! The theme folder has to be named exactly "Unified" or the theme won't work properly! (that's btw. an universal tip for all other themes as well) Known issues: The logo of the Platform/Playlist and the individual video border don't show up in the Game Details screen and the theme displays the generic Big Box logo and metallic video border instead when it gets opened through any other Games View than the Text List View. Tips for tweaking your LaunchBox setup for this theme: In LaunchBox: Tools -> Options -> Cart Front Priorities -> Select all Cart and Disc related entries, deselect everything else. In Big Box: Options ->Transitions -> Change "Game Image/Video Transition” to “Fade” In Big Box: To avoid spinning cart art go to: Options -> Views -> Make sure that „Remember separate View for each platform” is checked. Than go either to the Keyboard Mappings or the Controller Buttons settings and set up a key/button for “Switch View”. Now you can go back to your platforms and switch the games Views for each platform individually on the fly. Use the Unified Platform videos from EmuMovies for an overall uniform look. You can either download them as free user from the EmuMovies website or if you are an EmuMovies premium user you can get them directly through LaunchBox under: Tools -> "Download Platform/Playlist Theme Videos". Individual platform artwork not showing up?: The media files that are inside the “..\LaunchBox\Themes\Unified\Images\Theme\..” folder have to be named exactly like your platforms inside LaunchBox. I've went with the HyperList/RocketLauncher naming conventions for the filenames in this package. If Big Box doesn’t show any individual artwork for a system that is listed above you may need to manually rename the relevant files for that platform in all four sub-folders. Also make sure that in the Big Box Options -> Views –> “Show Games List Title” is enabled! Discs are not spinning / showing up?: Make sure you have the right Games List View selected and Disc images in your Cart Image Priorities enabled (see the tips section of this download description).

  11. Version 1.0.1

    726 downloads

    This was supposed to be a simple flat theme, but evolved into a 2 in 1, so you have the regular view which is flat and sleek and also you have available an optional view (per device) that resemble some classic mini consoles (including consoles that do not have mini versions as of yet). Features of this theme: Simple flat version that runs fast and looks great. No flashy animations that may affect perfomance. Optional "Classic Mini" view for many systems. Every Classic Mini view has it's own background music. Improved original design of some "Classic Mini" (Such as PSX and Genesis). "Classic Mini" style views for consoles that do not have an oficial Mini version (such as PS2, WII, etc.).

  12. Millennium Theme View File Les comparto un nuevo tema al que nombré ''MILLENNIUM'' en el que estuve trabajando durante un buen tiempo (y que mejor fecha para compartirlo que el primer día del año 2021) y que consta de varias vistas. En total son 4 vistas de Plataformas (o Categoría de Plataforma) y 8 vistas de Juegos! 3 de esas vistas de juegos son de temática específicas que les comento mas adelante. El tema fué construido gracias a la App Community Theme Creator for BigBox El listado de vistas que contiene el tema es el siguiente: ☑️ PLATAFORMAS (o CATEGORÍA DE PLATAFORMA) ✅ PlatformWheel1FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel2FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel3FiltersView ✅ PlatformWheel4FiltersView ☑️ VISTA DE JUEGOS ✅ HorizontalWheel1GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel2GamesView ✅ HorizontalWheel3GamesView NOTA: para poder visualizar la marquesina del arcade, hay que colocar las imágenes de marquesinas dentro de la carpeta ''Screenshot - Game Over'' de cada sistema, elegí ésta carpeta porque supongo que es la menos utilizada y me sirve para este propósito. Simplemente porque al colocar las imágenes de marquesinas en su carpeta correspondiente hay un conflicto entre la app de Launchbox y la app Community Theme Creator, es un poco rollo explicarlo bien pero simplemente pongan las marquesinas en la carpeta que les dije y listo. Es una vista Arcade con una pantalla CRT con scanlines y con muchos detalles de información, la otra vista de Arcade es mucho más minimalista. ✅ WallGamesView ✅ TextGamesView ☑️ VISTAS TEMÁTICAS ESPECÍFICAS ✅ WheelGamesView NOTA: como ven esta vista está diseñada específicamente para usarla con los juegos Arcades, y el diseño es más bien minimalista y a la vez te da esa sensación de tener el arcade en el salón de tu casa. Por supuesto la pueden usar con cualquier otro sistema, eso es a gusto de cada uno. ✅ Wheel2GamesView NOTA: esta vista como es lógico esta diseñada para usarla con los juegos de micro-ordenadores, con un ambiente que da una sensación de calidez. ✅ Wheel3GamesView NOTA: por último esta vista que es más para todos los sistemas de consolas retro y actuales, con esa pantalla en grande para poder ver los videos de cada juego. INSTALACIÓN: 1 Descargar el archivo (.zip) 2 Antes de descomprimir hacer click derecho al .zip, elegir Propiedades, y Desbloquear (Unblock) 3 Ahora si, una vez desbloqueado el archivo, descomprimirlo y colocar la carpeta ''Millennium'' dentro de la carpeta ''Themes'' de Launchbox 4 Seleccionar el tema desde las opciones de Big Box, en Opciones → Vistas 5 Recuerden que pueden seleccionar una vista distinta para cada sistema y que Big Box las recuerde, sólo tienen que marcar la casilla ''Recordar la vista separada para cada plataforma'' que se encuentra en Opciones → Vistas 6 A jugar! Eso es todo y espero que les guste! Submitter MarianS3 Submitted 01/01/2021 Category Big Box Custom Themes

    Ok, here is version 2 of my Retro Console Theme. This is a MASSIVE overhaul and Includes ANIMATIONS. Thanks to @y2guru and his unending support and development of the 'Community Theme Creator', which now offers an animation tool, I was able to completely rebuild this theme and make it the way I originally intended. Thank You as always my man! * Language issues have been fixed. Should work now! 5-1-2020 The original theme without animations can be found here: Retro Console Version 1 Pretty much every single view has been redone with at least more flare and details, but some of them are totally re-imagined. I have also added several new views and many more platform specific views. All with animations, subtle but informative (hopefully). One of the game views that has a smaller monitor window on the right side of the screen now plays a video in a loop of the matching consoles original startup or boot screen. Not all are included as I have not been able to find them on YouTube. Please let me know if you have any suggestions on where to look for more, would be very helpful! NEW: Playmode Icons - All custom and added all over the theme. NEW: I made a new view that is intended for use with newer consoles like PS3 and XBOX360. Looks good but does not require as much artwork since there is not much available yet. NEW: New version available, "Retro Console Theme Anim V2-center videos.zip". This version is designed to let users select a platform video set other than the Nostalgia set that I have been using. It is much better for center aligned videos. ALSO NEW are several controller button packs that can be swapped out to match your setup. These include 4 buttons each and are color coded throughout the theme: GREEN = Select RED = Back Blue = Search Yellow = Game info screen To use these you should just download the pack you want and drop it in the following folder: ?\LaunchBox\Themes\Retro Console Theme Anim V2\Media\buttons\. Make sure to overwrite the existing ones. controller buttons - arcade.zip: This is a set of generic arcade buttons that can be used for any setup. Just colored and round. controller buttons - numbered.zip: This is a set of numbered controller buttons (1 - 4) for controllers that have numbered buttons. controller buttons - ps3.zip: This is a set of PlayStation controller buttons controller buttons - xbox.zip: This is a set of Microsoft XBOX controller buttons I will gladly take any requests for additional controller buttons as long as they don't require changing the theme. (max of 4 buttons in a pack) ALSO: @Wanderer189 has made a huge contribution to this theme in the form of several downloadable add-on packs full of clear logos for each platform. These include literally thousands of logos made for each Genre, Playmode, ETC. This is an amazing thing and I thank you for your hard work Wanderer. You are awesome. If you would like to get these logos for your setup they can be found here: What is this theme: This is a video snap based BigBox theme. Heavily designed around the use and display of video snaps. This theme has over a hundred views including one that offers a different look for each platform including handhelds. There is a large amount of custom graphics and logos and images and icons etc. Hence the large file size. Use the startup and pause themes to complete the seamless setup. (also included here) All icons including stars for 'consumer ratings' and 'ESRB rating' and the new 'playmode icons' are custom and included in the theme file. Use them all you want. I am using the nostalgia platform videos and these are perfect for this theme. I may make my own someday but for now these are Great. @Wanderer189 is currently making videos for every genre and playmode. (you are awesome buddy, thank you so much for all your hard work and contributions to this and other themes) Available Downloads: Retro Console Theme Anim V2.zip - This is the entire theme including platform and platform device logos as well as all icons so you don't have to download them individually. This does not include the startup video, startup or pause themes, collection logos, etc. Retro Console Theme Anim V2-center videos.zip - This an alternate version of the theme. This version is designed to let users select a platform video set other than the Nostalgia set that I have been using. It is much better for center aligned platform videos. controller buttons - arcade.zip - Arcade panel based controller buttons controller buttons - numbered.zip - Number based controller buttons controller buttons - ps3.zip - PlayStation based controller buttons controller buttons - xbox.zip - XBOX based controller buttons Retro-Console-Pause.zip - The pause theme I made also to match this theme. (screens below) Retro-Console-Startup.zip - The startup and shutdown theme I made to match with this theme. (screens below) Platform Clear Logos.zip - Included in the theme download but also here in case you just want them alone. These were made specifically for this theme. Platform Device Logos.zip - Also made for this theme for the platform view that uses device images. Collection Device Logos.zip - Made to match this theme for the platform view that uses device images for each collection I use. I can make more upon request. Collection Logos.zip - Same as the platform logos. Made to match so they can be used in this theme. Platform Categories.zip - A bunch of category logos also made to match this theme. Startup Video.zip - A startup video I made just to add to the overall completeness of the theme. Not at all necessary but here if you want it. Retro Console Sound Pack.zip - Again not required but here if you want it. This is what i use in the video below. Just unzip it to your launchbox sounds folder and then select it in BigBox. Platform Original Boot Videos.zip - This is a pack of just the new startuo videos for each console or platform I could find. (included in theme so no need to download unless you want just these) Recommendations: Set your Image priorities in Launchbox as follows - Cart Front ( add disc images to the list - this is used in many views in this theme) Set your startup and shutdown time limits in launchbox settings. (mine are: startup=5 sec and shutdown=3.5 sec) I designed this around the Nostalgia Platform Videos. You can use anything but those will fit and line up best. This theme assumes an xbox controller setup: A=Select, B=Back, X=Search, Y=Game Details and Select Button=Change View (not required) I also set the left bumper to platforms and right bumper to platform categories. (not required but helpful) Get as many Banner, Steam Banner and Marquee images as you can. This theme offers a unique view for all arcade cabinet based games and will use those images. There is also a custom view for systems like Windows that also use them. Future Plans: Create a new view that uses the original loading video from each console. (started on 1-3-2020) DONE Complete the white silhouette console and controller images that are used in the startup theme. DONE Add animations to the theme ( @y2guru is working on this ability for his theme creator as we speak and I will update once it is ready) DONE Make platform videos to match this theme (maybe) - In the works How to Install: Extract Retro Console Theme.zip to your launchbox themes folder. This includes all the platform and device logos you need and will automatically use them. ( In order to use other logos just delete the ones in this theme folder) You can also use the startup and pause themes to add more of a consistent flow. Drop the startup video (if you want it) in the launchbox videos root folder. This theme currently has over 80 different platforms and includes the matching device logos, collection logos, category logos and more but some of these have to be added manually through launchbox (sorry). I can not figure out how to make them automatic.

    This is the ONLY Windows 10 Arcade Classics Desktop Theme available anywhere (that I could find)! I know this is not specifically LaunchBox related but it is retro-gaming related so I though I would share. NOTE - YOU DO NOT NEED LAUNCHBOX TO USE THIS THEME. I created this desktop theme for Windows 10 from 33 images and 30 wave files found around the internet and use them for my arcade cabinet. I take no credit for any of the images or sounds but thought I would share the theme in case anyone's interested. I put the Sound Scheme and Images together to create an ARCADE CLASSICS WINDOWS 10 DESKTOP THEME. Most images are 1920x1080 except for 2 that are a bit bigger and don't look that good scaled down. IN ORDER TO GET THE SOUND SCHEME AND DESKTOP THEME TO WORK TOGETHER: 1. Place the Arcade Classics Folder containing the WAV files into your %WINDIR%/media folder. Press WINDOW KEY + R then type in %WINDIR%/media to open the folder. 2. Double-click on the ARCADE CLASSICS THEME file (Arcade Classics.deskthemepack). It should connect the sound scheme to the desktop theme. I also included a VBS script that makes the desktop wallpaper rotate to the next random image and a shortcut to this script that makes it easy to double-click and run the script. You WILL NEED TO EDIT THE SHORTCUT depending on where you move the VBS script but I included it for completeness. Put the VB-SCRIPT wherever you'd like then edit the shourtcut to point to the vb-script. I have my script in my ../Hyperspin/ folder and the shortcut on my desktop but you can place it in your Launchbox directory or wherever you'd like. Enjoy, and let me know in the comments below if you have any issues with the theme or what your favorite images are. I like Space Invaders, Star Wars, and Battle Zone the best.
  15. 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.

  16. CoinOps Redux View File What is it? CoinOps Redux is a port of CoinOps Next to BigBox, co-created with @Klopjero. The theme has been developed using the Community Theme Creator (all the credit to @y2guru) and should display correctly in both 16:9 and 4:3 ratios. As in the case of CoinOps, it relies on 1120x1080 fanart images for game wheel views. Big thanks to BritneysPAIRS and the CoinOps team for their work in CoinOps and for their amazing theme design. Views It includes the following BigBox views: - 4 platform views. - 2 game wheels for arcade based systems. - 2 game wheels for non-arcade based systems. - 2 horizontal game wheels. - Systems view. Supporting more than 130 systems. For platform views, we suggest to use @viking colorful videos. Files available [CoinOps Redux 1.0.zip] The BigBox theme files. Just uncompress and copy / paste to Launchbox\Themes folder. All platform background images are included in the file. [Platforms] Sets of fanart images (1120x1080) for several platforms. If you want to use them, just unzip and copy / paste to Launchbox\Images\[Platform]\Fanart - Background. * It is also possible to use the fanart packs uploaded by @RedSnake for his DarkRoom theme (or use these in DarkRoom).

    LV-101 is dark, futuristic and responsive theme. Theme uses custom device and playlist images (download the psd templates from here). 108 devices are included in this package. Should work well with 16:10, 16:9, 4:3 and 5:4 ratios. Theme was designed to use box art, gameplay screenshot and gameplay video. If you want to make changes you can download the Community Creator Tool Files. For view transitions I recommend the vertical animation, it just feels right with this theme. Requires a powerful system to run smoothly. Tried it with i5-4570t and performance was horrible. AllNightLong works better on older systems. Theme contains: Platform Wheel 1 Platform Wheel 2 Text Filters View Text Games View Horizontal Wheel 1 Games View Horizontal Wheel 2 Games View So not a lot, but I didn't want to make this theme as huge as my previous theme. Less is more, or so they say. Credits: @y2guru for the COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox @viking for the amazing platform videos.

    *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.

    What's different in 2.0? *This replaces the old version of Refried entirely. DO NOT merge this new version with the old one. *All platform addon themes from the first version of Refried have been merged into one single addon called "Queso Fresco" (because it tastes great on top of refried beans...that's why). Therefore all of those older addon themes are no longer needed. *Requires Launchbox 9.4 or above to function properly *Revised Install instructions (please read them below if you are just starting out with the theme) *Added custom controller icons for play modes in the game description on some systems...this will get finished in the future *More great additions made by Ghostlines to the theme *Added the fullscreen video view to all platforms (view 4) *Improved the artwork slightly for the Big Box options menus Important note**If you install this theme,and the artwork does not display properly for a platform on your system,then more than likely it is a naming conflict between your platform and the files in the theme. To fix this issue,you must locate these files and change the name to your actual platforms name: 1.Images/Theme/Background/(name of your platform that is mislabeled) 2.Images/Theme/VideoBorder/(name of your platform that is mislabeled) If you install the Queso Fresco addon as well,then you must also rename the custom view xaml files to your platform name. I set out to make an alternate version to the beautiful Unified theme,with modifications here and there,yet,as I worked on it more and more,I started to go a different direction slightly...and thus Refried was born. This theme is built to focus on artwork,and showcase each system in bright colorful high definition artwork. I have drawn all new original arcade cabinets,and designed custom borders for each platform,which set each system apart from each other,while maintaining a unified appearance across the board. The main difference between this,and many other themes that are out there...are the video borders. When using the Default theme,all video borders are the same size across the entire theme...but,when using the addons,the video borders will then fit the system properly...so that the video for Game Boy Advance,will fit the GBA Video Border...and the PSP video,will fit the PSP Video Border. In other words,by using the custom view addons,it allows the theme to represent the system perfectly...rather than the same size border for everything. This theme is more than capable of running without a single addon theme installed,and only using the Default...the addons are merely to extend the experience of each system,with special added artwork,and tweaks.On the other hand,the Addons rely on the Default themes structure,and will not work without the default theme installed. There are multiple views included with the default theme,including - 1.Border with No Box/Cart/Disc Art 2.Border with Box/Cart/Disc Art 3.Border with Box/Spinning Cart/Disc Art 4.Full Screen Video w/Centered enlarged wheel 5.Border Text List View with Box/Cart/Disc Art The Queso Fresco addon has 5 views - 1.Special Artwork/Special Border with No Box/Cart/Disc Art 2.Special Border with Box/Cart/Disc Art (With wheel fade) 3.Special Border with Box/Cart/Disc Art (No wheel fade) 4.Full Screen Video w/Centered enlarged wheel 5.Special Border Text List View with Box/Cart/Disc Art **If the system has CD's/Discs,then the Disc will spin in Views 2 and 3...but,if the system has carts or floppies,then they will not spin in views 2 and 3. The Arcade portion of the Queso Fresco addon has 5 views - 1.Dynamic Marquees with Character Artwork 2.No Dynamic Marquees with Character Artwork 3.Dynamic Marquees with Advert/Flyers 4.Full Screen Video w/Centered enlarged wheel 5.Text List View with Advert/Flyers/Cabinets With the Queso Fresco addon installed,the arcade platforms are capable of displaying Video Marquees for each game,as well as regular marquees, in the marquee area of the cabinets (Some samples are included,and more are on the way)* Any Video Marquees must be placed in "LaunchBox/Themes/Unified Refried/Images/Theme/Addons/_Arcade/Video Marquees/" and must be in mp4 format In order to make this work properly,you must go into LaunchBox options,and change the priority for Cart Back Image to Arcade - Marquee,and uncheck anything else. Installation: 1.Download the Default theme (Unified Refried) ,and place it in your "Launchbox/Themes" folder 2.If you have not done so,you will need to unblock the Plugins...This does not have to be done for every addon theme,as unblocking them once,in the default,is all that is necessary...excerpt taken from unified description - 3.Set the theme to "Unified Refried" in Options/Views/Theme 4.If installing any of the addons,simply unzip the addon,and open the folder that was created. In this case we will use the Queso Fresco addon as an example. 5.Place the two folders (Images and Views) into the Unified Refried default theme folder,merging the folders when prompted. 6.That's it! ....When you load up Big Box,the artwork should be changed to the Queso Fresco alternate art. Pictures of Installation process for those that need them...If this is your first time using Refried you can skip step 1 Thanks @RetroNi for the use of his Logo set. @CriticalCid for his theme Unified,as I used alot of his coding as a base for the assembly of this theme. @kyoken @neil9000 @bundangdon @zetec-s-joe @Retro808 @Porl Hendy for their feedback during testing. @faeran for his help early on in the development stages. @Jason Carr because I used a bit of code from his Redux version,and took on some of his ideas from the changes he made @NJDave71 for his HelperControl plugin @bmonomad @Suhrvivor for their work on the Community Star Ratings,Favorites,and Play Mode code,which formed the base for implementing it into this theme @Ghostlines for his additions to the theme Examples: Current Platform list covered by the theme - Arcade Consoles Handhelds Computers Pinball Ghostlines Additions Current Playlists covered by the theme - Collections Genres Developers Favorites The Platform/Playlist video set can be found here...

    Following @CriticalCid awesome Unified theme project, and so you can seamlessly transition from the theme to the emulator, this pack consists of each of the +200 system backgrounds, made as overlays in 1080p, 3 variations each. IMPORTANT (In case you will be using these pngs with Retroarch): Overlays require at least one image (.png) and a configuration file (.cfg) in order to activate them. The configuration file should have the exact same name as the image file. DO NOT use spaces in the filenames (for this pack you will need to remove the spaces from the file names). These files (the png and its corresponding cfg) should be placed together in the libretro overlay folder. In order to activate an overlay, go to the RetroArch Settings menu. Find the Onscreen Display submenu. From this menu you can activate the Overlay system and select which overlay file to display. Example: 4:3 with integer scale 4:3 with integer scale and a drop shadow 4:3 full screen

    ~ LATINO THEME creado por MarianS3 ~ Gente tengo el agrado de poder compartir mi primer ''Theme'' creado para Big Box llamado LATINO! con una interfaz completamente en español (de ahí el nombre 😋) Cuenta con dos vistas de juegos y una vista de plataforma, no son muchas vistas pero le dediqué varias horas en crearlo para que se vea lo mejor posible y viendo hasta el más mínimo detalle hasta quedar conforme con el resultado final. ~ El Theme LATINO fué construido usando el Community Theme Creator for BigBox de @y2guru Recuerden desbloquear los archivos .dll dentro de la carpeta ''Plugins'' antes de usar el tema para evitar errores, dentro del tema hay un txt con instrucciones. Deberían instalar también las fuentes que vienen con el tema, las mismas se encuentran dentro de la carpeta ''Fonts''. Espero que lo disfruten tanto como yo! Saludos!! ~ MarianS3
  25. DarkRoom View File Intro DarkRoom is a theme for BigBox that relies heavily on 1120x1080 fanarts / game illustrations and has been influenced by CoinOps design. It has been designed for a 16:9 ratio, 1920x1080 resolution. I am not sure if it is displayed properly in other resolutions as I don't have any means of test for that. For now 37 systems are covered: and more are on the way: This theme has : - 1 platform view, which presents a delayed video with random games from the current platform/playlist. That means this theme doesn't need generic platform videos (except for meta category like Arcade, Computers, Consoles, etc ...); also, non auto-populated playlists will not display any video for now. - 2 game views: a wheel view and a text game view Configuration Files In "Launchbox\Themes\DarkRoom\Views\Configurations", there are several xaml files (1 for each supported system). In case one of your system has a different name from the one the theme is using (Example: "Arcade SNK Neo Geo MVS" instead of "SNK Neo Geo MVS"), you can just: - copy the xaml file and rename the copy with the name from your collection (or directly rename the original), but from an evolutive point of view, it would be better to create a xaml file "Arcade SNK Neo Geo MVS.xaml" with that inside (to simplify, the content makes it so that "Arcade SNK Neo Geo" inherits "SNK Neo Geo MVS" system) <ResourceDictionary xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation" xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"> <ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries> <ResourceDictionary Source="pack://siteoforigin:,,,/Themes/DarkRoom/Views/Configurations/SNK Neo Geo MVS.xaml" /> </ResourceDictionary.MergedDictionaries> </ResourceDictionary> - change the name of the platform fanart / clear logos located in "Launchbox\Themes\DarkRoom\Images\<Platforms or Playlists>\<Fanart or Clear Logo>" Video _BB.mp4 Files in Download sections - DarkRoom.zip contains main theme files. - All other zip archives contains fanarts / illustrations for the theme that must be placed in your systems fanart folders: "Launchbox\Images\<platform_name>\Fanart - Background" I will add more as time comes ... Special Thanx @Rincewind for his time in helping me fix an issue with the theme. I would not have been able to figure out what was wrong alone.
