Nostalgia |4:3| video Set


Recommended Posts

@ALIE Thx ! 
There are several reason for choosing this ratio.

  • There are already many video in 16:9. Not so mutch in 4:3. I mean here, on LaunchBox forum.
  • I have a 4:3 bartop ^^
  • You can enter a 4:3 video in a 16:9 monitor. Not the opposite. (Not without black tape)

Again, I work on a theme that will fix this problem. (At least in part) Just waiting @Jason Carr update for some wheel alignement issue and I ready for release.  
It's not an incredible thing. Just a trick applicable on any theme. Here is the idea: The video is stretch vertically and horizontally aligned right. That way, no deformation. Below and above, on the same principle, I put the png overlay to complete the holes. 

Here is a picture to illustrate the principle :Theme_BarTop_WIP_030.jpgHere are some real screenshot made this morning on my own BigBox. No photoshop here. (still WIP on wheel) It's out of the box. No code changes between each screen.

Hi Viking, love your work & looking forward to the theme update for videos to fit big screens. I really like the Xbox 360 & PS3 videos & I was wondering if you could possibly update the WINDOWS platform video with some 3D games like Forza Motorsport 6 Apex ect seem as though a high end gaming PC is far more superior & think it would credit the Windows platform more. Keep up the good work.

Why not, but:

  • Sega MD (japan) = It's the same design as the European version, just with a red logo not? Existing video is not enough?
  • OpenBOR = OK. This is an arcade emulator right?
  • Future Pinball = I wanted to do it with the other pinball emulator, but I can't find good gameplay video. All catches found are in wide format and with camera motion in game. I need capture without any camera move. I hope to be clear, but the style of my videos imposes this on me. If anyone at that, it would be perfect!
