  1. Can anyone help me identify which theme is being used at the very beginning of the Big Box Multi-Theme Demo video on YouTube? It's so awesome looking. I've searched through so many of the Theme downloads but can't seem to find it.
  2. Version 1.0.0


    This is v1.0 of Styphelus' Platform Boxes. These are replicas of the actual Console and Computer Boxes and Arcade advertising flyers to be used instead of platform videos. This package contains 68 unique platforms with more to come. Simply drop them in LaunchBox\Videos\Platforms. Each is 1920x1080 in size and can be used with almost every theme available for lunchbox. This allows for fast browsing while listening to your favorite background music.

  4. Changing Clear Logos to Banners

    Hi, I use the Critical Zone theme, I'm trying to change the clear logos, in the game wheel, to banners, I made a copy of the theme, edited Imagetype"Clear Logos" to "Banner", didn't work, so changed it to "Banners", still doesn't work, I'm super new to theme designing so any help is highly appreciated. Thank you. -Nasr A. Bajbair
  5. Hi all! I got a noob question. I'm moving from a RetroPie fully loaded to my PC that can run way more stuff than a RaspberryPie3. (My pc is FAT but is FAST) I installed Lauchbox, got a license since it's an awesome piece of software. I installed Retroarch, setup a couple emulator and add a couple of games. I got most boxart, description, etc working (some roms are just messy and was not identified). I install the custom theme RetroFresh since the demo video was magnificent. (I'm sure there other really great, I will find them too!) I started BIG BOX MODE and it's really not like in the video! I guess I have to scrape a bunch of custom art... Is there a tutorial about how to setup the theme properly and get all the game name in logo, the intro video for the console (for the game too if possible)? In other word, I would like to setup my theme like it's showed in this video! Edit 1: Looking deeper I found stuff about EmuMovie. I make an account and will try to sync with LauchBox. Thanks!!
  6. Themes

    Hey boys, anyone know where I can find these themes?
  7. I know some of you have been waiting for these for awhile and due to real life circumstances, I've had to put them on hiatus. However, I'm now back in the swing of things and wanted to see if recorded HyperSpin themes are still of interest to anyone? With all the new cinematic 16:9 themes being made, I'm not sure how much interest still remains for these old 4:3 themes but I personally prefer these for representing my old console systems in BigBox and leave the widescreen themes to the newer consoles (PSP, Wii, etc). Either way, I still feel these old themes should be preserved so I'm going to continue recording all I can with N64 being the latest set I tackle. I'm hoping to have these done within the next few weeks and ready for @circo to add to the EmuMovies FTP. I'll update back when they're released. I'll also be adding some new themes to the previously released sets (NES, SNES, Genesis, etc). Hopefully the community will make use of them... Stay tuned
  8. Use Powerpoint to create videos?

    Hi guys, I've been kind of interested to make game specific videos for the apple IIe in the style of hyperspin (ie floating/pulsing clip art along side video clips) I'm unfamiliar with visual studio, and I may give it a shot, but I was thinking that I could also just use powerpoint to replicate a lot of the effects. I could then just use a video capture program (ie snagit) to capture the video. Thoughts? Pros? cons?
  9. Hi there so i have a question, i want to make a code where it will show a background of that specific console, instead of just a video. So like a NES Background when you select the NES. If anyone could help me out that would be great.
  10. I am trying to add coverFlow to my theme but Visual Studio 2017 community can't find the LaunchBox Plugins dll? How can i solve this? <coverFlow:FlowControl x:Name="FlowControl" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Grid.Column="0" CoverFactory="{Binding CoverFactory}" ImageType="Clear Logo" CurveAmount="4.5" CameraZPosition="3.0" VisibleCount="14" PageSize="6" Spacing="1.0" ItemZPosition="1.0" SelectedItemZPosition="2.0" /> </coverFlow:FlowControl> This is the code
  11. Version 1.1.1


    A collection of custom user controls to make custom themes easier. I will be updating the tool periodically with new features. Install for use Download HexControls.dll place the file in the plugins folder in your theme Screenshots Control. Description A control to randomly display a list of screenshots available for a game. It will stretch itself to the bounds of the container it is placed in. Default Use in a Theme <Hex:Screenshots/> Advanced Use Using the properties below will allow the user to effect the maximum number of screenshots shown, spacing and border controls Properties ScreenshotBorderColor: Border Color ScreenshotPanelOrientation: "Vertical" or "Horizontal" Direction Screenshot span ScreenshotMaxImages: Number of maximum screenshots shown (Default is 4) ScreenshotBorderSize: How thick the border around the screenshot is. Setting the bordersize to zero will remove the border ScreenshotCornerRadius: Curve around all edges of a scrrenshot ScreenshotMarginSize= Space Between each screenshots edge Example <Hex:Screenshots ScreenshotBorderColor="Blue" ScreenshotPanelOrientation="Vertical" ScreenshotMaxImages="10" ScreenshotBorderSize="15" ScreenshotCornerRadius="13" ScreenshotMarginSize="5" Grid.Column="15" Grid.Row="3" Grid.RowSpan="15" Grid.ColumnSpan="15"> </Hex:Screenshots> Star Rating Default Use in a Theme In a Game view call <Hex:StarRating /> Pretty much it for the default use. The control will size to whatever space it is placed in. This will get you a red star with white border for an on star and a black star with white border for an off star. Advanced Use I've set up the control to allow users to do two things: Modify the color properties for Star On/Star Off and their border Modify two Star vectors layered on top of each other; this has been created to allow for more vibrant star designs using transparency. Properties: ColorOnStarOneFill - On Fill Color for Star one ColorOnStarOneBorder - On Border Color for Star One ColorOnStarTwoFill - On Fill Color for Star Two ColorOnStarTwoBorder - On Border Color for Star Two ColorOffStarOneFill - Off Fill Color for Star One ColorOffStarOneBorder - Off Border Color for Star One ColorOffStarTwoFill - Off Fill Color for Star Two ColorOffStarTwoBorder - Off Border Color for Star Two StarsMarginSize - Margin Between Each star BorderStarOneSize - Size of the Border for Star One BorderStarTwoSize - Size of the Border for Size Two So, using these settings <Hex:StarRating Panel.ZIndex="1000" Grid.Column="11" Grid.Row="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="10" Grid.RowSpan="3" HorizontalAlignment="Left" VerticalAlignment="Top" ColorOnStarOneFill="#BBC49A6C" ColorOnStarOneBorder="#11111111" ColorOnStarTwoFill="#BBC49A6C" ColorOnStarTwoBorder="#11FFFFFF" ColorOffStarOneFill="Black" ColorOffStarOneBorder="White" ColorOffStarTwoFill="#66000000" ColorOffStarTwoBorder="White" StarsMarginSize="10" BorderStarOneSize="8" BorderStarTwoSize="20" SnapsToDevicePixels="True"/> Will give you a result like this.
  12. Background images and videos on custom themes

    Hey guys - it's me again with another stupid question I'm sure. After watching Jason and Wood and Brad's videos I finally upgraded to a lifetime Premium account. I'm really loving Launchbox and Big Box makes it just that much better. So my question - I'm loving the custom big box themes that are available. I've downloaded a handful of them (most per Woods' recommendation) but i can't seem to get any of the background images to show. I can get the fanart or clear logos but for ones like CityHunter that have all those great videos or Minimal AO has a whole folder of backgrounds that I have no clue how where to put them etc, just to name a couple. Is there an easy way to add or specify a background image that's not the random fanart or clear logo? Or to make a great theme like CityHunter's not just have a blank black screen on all the platforms? Excuse my ignorance. Trying to figure this out on my own had had me pulling my hair out and it's not like i have a lot to begin with anymore Thanks guys! LG
  13. ProjectTalk:- Bezels Bezels Bezels

    Like many people here I am a RetroArch whore That means I use Overlays to add borders to some things...To fair I dont actually use many overlays but then again my setup has never been polished and tends to be a testing ground more than an actual game machine. Cant help but tinker.... Anyway I totally love bezel artwork and enjoy collecting bezels for all systems (not so much Arcade) I would love to put a big global pack together in Metalzoic's Mega Bezel Pack style (if your familiar) for everything except Arcade.....PM me if your interested. I guess the size of a pack like that will probably need a home on a decent server. I expect EmuMovies is the obvious place if they will have it. So here are my ongoing projects.... Adding Overlays to the Libretro Repo's...They are free to download from the below links. Just click "clone" and "download as zip" Console Type Mainly or Collections like @Nyny77 and @nosh at the moment. https://github.com/libretro/overlay-borders Arcade Type (RetroArch is well suited to Arcade Overlays....best use MAME or RocketLauncher) https://github.com/libretro/arcade-overlays I also just started helping out @JamesBaker with his Bezel efforts All that info will be here eventually http://emulationguide.com/james-baker or his YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxNgRrtLSth94xOHNUHqUfw @MetalVinnie are you cool for me to share your New Black Box NES bezels in the above places? (When time permits) If you missed those they are here I LOVE A BEZEL

    This is my design under another Front End and it became the default Theme. I have gotten several requests to bring it to BigBox. Here are a couple of screen Shots to give you an idea. I am working on the design and as i get closer to a working version I will post an update. Happy Gaming

  18. Hi all, complete noob here! I just discovered Launchbox a few days ago and thought I’d dive straight in and purchase BigBox - absolutely loving the slick layout, I’m using a Zotac nano box with i3-5010 and 16gb ram running Windows 10. GameCube, Wii, PS1 & Dreamcast all running smoothly I’m struggling with a few things though which I can’t find answers to on the web, and hoping I can get some guidance on here! Items I have hidden in Launchbox still appear in recent items in BigBox Platform view, how do I fix this? I have toggled ‘show hidden items’ in BigBox, deleted and re-created playlists but the hidden items still show up there. I know they’re hidden because they have no artwork, and I’ve marked all those as hidden. Is it a bug with the recent items list? I have also downloaded custom themes from here, then tweaked images such as replacing platform banner art and clear logos etc. I’ve then changed themes and noticed that my tweaks are still there in the new theme, so I’m confused as to how I should correctly adjust images so that switching themes will also switch all artwork to the new theme, does that make sense or have I misunderstood how themes work? Platform banner art was edited by right clicking on the platform name in Launchbox, then adding a new image and changing the original image type to “fan art” to effect the change. Is there a better way? Also where are these images saved? When I search these folders they are empty: \LaunchBox\Themes\ThemeName\Images\Platforms\Banner When I search this folder, the image I added for the platform banner isn’t there: \LaunchBox\Images\Nintendo 64\Banner Sorry for all the questions, just a noob in need of some help
  19. Sega Saturn Themes (16:9)

    Sega Saturn Themes (16:9) View File Since I'm getting closer to being finished with the Final Fantasy themes, I decided to get a thread going for Sega Saturn. I will be uploading themes for the games in my collection (35) as I complete them. I'll be doing them alphabetically, as they appear in my LB. Since I also have threads going for Amiga, Independent, The Witcher and Donkey Kong Country and a Playlist theme for Metroid (followed by Final Fantasy, Mega Man, Mario and Castlevania), it might be a little slow going to finish all of them, but I'll try to have a few up by the end of the weekend (really need to re-visit my Amiga ones since I've been neglecting it a bit). I'm doing my best to not just churn 'em out too fast, though I will be re-doing at least one of those Final Fantasy ones (After Years). In any case, if you have special requests for games that don't show up, just let me know. If I already have it, it's definitely coming, but if I don't, I will add it to a list of To Do's for this category. And, as always, the downloads will be in the same order as the YouTube playlist/text list below. First up is Akumajō Dracula X: Gekka no Yasōkyoku... better known in the US as Castlevania: Symphony of the Night 1. Akumajō Dracula X: Gekka no Yasōkyoku 2. Albert Odyssey: Legend of Eldean 3.

Soviet Strike 35. Thunder Force V 36. Vampire Savior: The Lord of Vampire 37. Sōkyūgurentai v2 - Wasn't happy with the original. There's very little art available for this game (even if you search for Terra Diver; same for Dark Savior). I decided to take out the art and leave the logo since it just didn't look good to me. Otherwise, this is identical to the original. 38. Shining Wisdom v2 - Identical to the original, but cleaned up around the sword a little more. This concludes all the games I have in my LB collection. If I add any more games to it in the future, I will add more themes to this list (or if anyone makes a request for something specific not here).
