I just finished a new banner (ScummVM) and figured since we've got a shiny new forum subsection for user-created content, I might as well make a thread for the platform banners I've created and just continue to add new ones here. Please note that in the cases where the platform is represented by a logo (like DOS, Sega Model 2, ScummVM, etc.) there isn't a separate "sketch" style banner. I've been creating these to suit the needs of my own LB setup, but I'm open to suggestions for other platforms as well.

"Normal" style:

Gameboy, Gameboy color, ps4. That's all I'm missing so far. Thanks! I really like the sketch ones. Is there a way I can donate to you for these artwork pieces?

I'll see what I can come up with for Gameboy and GBC. I'll try to do a PS4 one eventually as well but that's a lower priority since there's no PS4 emulation currently - so most people wouldn't find it useful.
GonjaT said Is there a way I can donate to you for these artwork pieces?
I genuinely appreciate the thought, but no - this is something I do for fun and to help the community; no compensation is necessary. Thank you though! Laugh You could certainly donate to the GoFundMe campaign that's currently ongoing for some alternate banners, however. @SentaiBrad is there a way I could get "trusted" status or whatever it's called in order for me to edit my original post? I made a new banner but I can't edit the original post to add it currently.

Zombeaver Thank you for seeing what you can do for the Gameboy and Gameboy Color, as I am certainly looking forward to seeing the outcome of my setup with the art you have created! as for Ps4 I completely understand and will wait. I only request it and have it on my system because I have been working on my home automation setup and will be done hopefully in a month or so.... What the Ps4 wheel will do is when I click the game, and then click play, it will then run a script, send a signal to my harmony hub(change input) to my Ps4 source on the TV, then dim my lights, and also adjust my surround setup to game mode from theater mode. It wont be able to launch the specific game unless i can tie it into PC remote play some how and have it auto navigate to that game from there... but that's something I will look at in the future.

@GonjaT Wow, that actually sounds pretty sweet. I love setting up stuff like that. I use something called Remote Launcher to do some neat things, though not quite to that level - when I get home from work (and am in the garage, two floors below my PC) I can use it to start Plex Home Theater on my PC, then I connect to my Plex network via the Plex app on my phone and play (cast) something to it, and then I can use Remote Launcher again to switch the audio output from my headphones to speakers (because I usually forget about it and leave them on headphones the night before). As a bonus, it's a great and hilarious way of scaring the crap out of my wife. She thought my PC was possessed or something the first time. I also use it for doing certain things with the Steam Link - certain emulators can be a little extra difficult to cooperate and are difficult to close via normal methods while streaming through the Link, so I have it setup to issue close commands to specific .exes on command.
Rincewind said Can I ask how you create the sketch style ones
It's actually just a couple simple Photoshop filters. First you want to use "Poster Edges" Edge thickness: 2 Edge intensity: 1 Posterization: 2 Then you use "Cutout". The actual settings vary depending on the image and they have to be tweaked, but my usual starting point is Number of levels: 4 Edge simplicity: 4 Edge fidelity: 2 Number of levels in particular gets adjusted quite a bit from image to image.

Thanks @Zombeaver I've been looking for an easy way to make a photo look like a cartoon and that has made it easy :)

I can't edit the original post currently, so I'll add new banners as thread replies for the time being. This is a banner I made for a custom platform I created in LB called "Classic PC". I use it for games from around 1995 - 2005 (they have to be a minimum of 10 years old) that are post-DOS era like Wizardry 8, The Longest Journey, Gothic, Outcast, Thief, etc. I felt weird about lumping this period of PC games in with say Crysis. The background is from Anachronox - an amazingly unique and hilarious PC RPG that nobody played Confused (and just so happens to be a whopping $1.74 currently on the Steam sale *nudge*). Next up will be Gameboy. Classic-PC-Banner.png

I own Anachronox actually! So you're not alone. Also, I agree with the others, thank you for doing this! I've asked Jason to give you the permission to edit your posts. I will let you know when he does.

Nice! I've got my big box displayed proudly on my PC shelf :P It's criminally underappreciated; one of my all-time favorites for sure.

@GonjaT I've finished some Gameboy banners. Sorry it took so long - been working on other projects recently. My first thought was to do one for Link's Awakening as that's my favorite Gameboy game, but I didn't really want to have two banners with Zelda (with Ocarina of Time being on the N64 one) so I decided to go for another iconic (and appropriate given the current craze) Gameboy game - Pokemon (Red, in this case). I think it's...okay; but maybe a bit boring. So I said to hell with it and made one for Link's Awakening anyway. I figured I might as well include both versions here. For me it's no competition, but I know some people love their Pokemon haha. Gameboy-Banner.pngGameboy-Banner-sketch.pngGameboy-Zelda-Banner.pngGameboy-Zelda-Banner-sketch.png

Here's an Amiga banner to go with the clear logo I made recently. I need to make a Master System one as well for that reason.

I had a bit of trouble making up my mind on this one so I've got a couple options available. Ninja Gaiden was the first attempt; not entirely sure I'm satisfied with it which is what led to the Phantasy Star version. I hope you guys dig one or both; I've been staring at them for too long to be objective. I'm seeing everything in various shades of orange at this point Confused

Awesome work! Its great to get on the forum and see users doing cool stuff with LB. Will be using, so for sure thanks for sharing. Does anyone know if LaunchBox will cycle through multiple banners the way it does for screenshots? Would be cool to have both of these sets in there popping randomly. Edit: Just confirms this works. Just append the system name with "-01" etc.

Hi @fromlostdays, LaunchBox and Big Box will randomly pick all types of images if there are multiples. However, due to caching, some of them might not update as often as they should. But it's worth a shot; let us know how it goes. :)

For banners it does work, yes. For clear logos, however, it doesn't - you have to refresh the clear logo image cache for those to change. Glad you like these Laugh
