We do not have a ton of forum rules but we do request not spamming the same question in separate forum threads. Please just post once. I have deleted your other thread.

As far as you questions. Fonts can be changed. You can add the font to a folder inside the theme so if you ever share it the user does not need to install it and it also means you would not need to install it. Then change the code to the correct font path and font family. In the example below for a font called Prototype you would need to change the "YOUR THEME FOLDER NAME HERE" to well, your theme's folder. Also "Prototype.ttf#Prototype" would need to be changed to the font file name (Prototype.tff) and font name (#Prototype) of the font you are using.


FontFamily="LAUNCHBOX_ROOT_FOLDER/Theme/YOUR THEME FOLDER NAME HERE/Fonts/Prototype.ttf#Prototype"

Options screen do you mean the game details screen? The one where you select play, add to playlist and other items? If so the Game Details screen and Game list views are linked. I do not believe you can add a different view. I have not seen any theme's to date do that.

I do apologise for the double post, reason was I thought I'd posted in the wrong section. But thank you for deleting the double post for me.

Also thank you for the info on changing the fonts, I'll have a look and see what I can find.

In regards to the options screen video, its the bigbox "settings screen" its the screen where you can see the list "manage themes", "manage pause themes" "search" "lock" etc.  I wanted to put a video on that screen

Those screens are not editable in that way im afraid, they are kept simple for a specific reason, cause if a theme breaks the options, then thats a big deal and you cant get there to change back.

I do believe you can add a video there. I believe some updates occurred and now you can. I will have to double check as I had a theme I tested it out on.

If you open the \Launchbox\Themes folder you will see a Documentation pdf file in there. The last couple of pages I believe will give you a video controls code you can use. You should be able to add that line and specify the video and video path.

Thank you for the info, Im still trying to get my head around alot of this (Finding it abit complicated).

My launchbox files are all stored on my PC like this "C:\Launchbox\Themes\CityHunter 2"

But what exactly is the files that I need to mod to add the lines of text onto?

The video file I want to use (for e.g) for the options/settings screen is a file called "neon bedroom.mp4"
