Where is the "theme video" folder?

Recommended Posts

When editing a platform, you can set the folder locations for all the media types. This includes "videos", but I don't see an option for theme videos. Are these kept in the same folder, or is there just no option to set the folder for this?

Theme videos go in LaunchBox\Videos\<platform>\Theme

Unfortunately there is no option to set this, not sure why @Jason Carr ?

Just hasn't really been requested and therefore I never added it. So let's call this the first request. ;)

That would be great, cheers. Videos take up a lot of space and I like to set my video folder onto an external drive.

Edit: guess there is always mklink in the meantime...

The theme folder is for the James Baker game videos that can be downloaded during import, they are not strictly speaking game video snaps as they are custom made, so they go into a separate theme folder.

very much different one is actual game footage and the other is a custom made video that incorporates characters or boxes in with a video much more elaborate. I could easily record a game snap but couldn't make one of James videos.

Well you could have both with the theme folder, so a normal snap and a theme video. Obviously you could not have both of those in the standard video folder as they would be named the same and if you tried adding one it would ask you to overite the other, so this is how its handled, and there is a option in bigbox to prioritize the theme videos over the standard snaps.

Edit,

And yeah what @DOS76 said.

Right, that makes sense.... but isn't it redundant? I mean, if you're not using the video snaps, just put the theme video in the normal spot in the first place.
