Gaussian Blur (or equiv) for Box Art as Background


Recommended Posts

Hi, Would it be possible to add an option that applies a Gaussian Blur to the background when using the game's box art? Optionally with a slider to determine the intensity. I currently use a faded Box Art which works well but looks a bit odd with lower resolution box art. I think a blur effect like that makes it a bit more aesthetically appealing in my opinion. Here's a fairly rough mock-up I made (the selection box doesn't look good here but that's my bad Photoshop skills): blur-mockup.png This might be a bit computationally expensive to apply every time you switch, but I think it'd be a neat option in the future. Another minor, long shot suggestion: a fade between backgrounds when the next one has loaded instead of just the sudden switch? Just started using LaunchBox last night and I'm enjoying it so far, will probably buy Premium at some point. Thanks for all your hard work!
