I love this theme, but is there any way to select an option that does not apply the CRT look to screenshots and video?

Edit: I can just remove the scanlines.png from the theme, but it would be great to have a view option for this in case of updates.

Unfortunately, the simplest way is to delete the scanline.png as you figured out. There's no option based way to disable scanlines. Themes/skins just don't have that capability.

First of all, I absolutely LOVE this theme, so thank you Faeran for the awesome work that you do. I apologize if this has been covered, but I have one issue with the theme. For SNES, I use a custom name in my LB setup. I name it "Nintendo Super NES". For some reason, because of that, Coverbox does not load the SNES layout, just the generic one. For the criminally stupid, is there a step by step way of getting it to recognize it using my custom name?

Help from anyone would be much appreciated...and thank you in advance.

Joseph

Hi, and congratulations for this great theme ! For some reason, my NEC TurboGrafx-16 platform uses the generic layout instead of the specific one, what should I do to get the specific theme ? Thanks !

@jrusso4587 and @Tromzy. Sounds like you guys are having the same sort of issue.

It will only find the platform specific theme if the name within LaunchBox is the same as the xaml files.

Check within both the TextGamesView and TextListView folders and make sure the files match your platform name.

The folders are in the Themes\CoverBox\Views folder.

Thanks for your answer ! It turns out  there is no xml file for Turbografx in the folders, where can I get it ?

 

Edit : I found the xml files in the archive you provide in the 1st post. You should be informed that the Turbografx files are not there when you install the theme via the built-in Big Box theme manager !

It will depend on how you named that system in Launchbox, if you have a different name for it, it cant match the artwork in the theme. So you either need to rename the platform in Launchbox so that it matches what the platforms images are called in the theme, or you need to rename all the images in the theme to match the platform name in Launchbox.

In Launchbox the system is named "NEC TurboGrafx-16".

Well i just looked in the theme folder and there isnt a TurboGrafx-16 view, so that will be why you get the default instead.

And the TurboGrafx files provided in the archive don't work.

You will need to download the version of coverbox from the forums, as the version in the themes manager has not been updated yet.

The archive that you downloaded from the forums in the first post. You need to delete the current version of CoverBox completely from the Themes folder (the one that gets downloaded from the themes manager), and replace it with the CoverBox folder from the Archive.

This would be the only way to know for sure that you have all the necessary files needed for the new NEC TurboGrafx-16 theme.

I downloaded the theme exclusively from the forum archive and the TurboGrafx-16 theme worked ! The Sega Dreamcast theme did not work, but I just had to rename the xml files from "Sega Dreamcast" to just "Dreamcast" and it worked again ! Thanks for your help !

Well that was simple. Simply changing the file names did the trick. Thanks so much Faeran!!

Love this theme.  I can't seem to get the theme to work for custom playlists though.  For example, I've created a personal Top 20 playlist for SNES.  Is there any way to associate the SNES theme for that playlist?  Thanks!

Hi @SirTay. You'll need to go to these 2 locations:

Launchbox\Themes\CoverBox\Views\TextGamesView
Launchbox\Themes\CoverBox\Views\TextListView

Find the Super Nintendo Entertainment System file in both folders, and create a copy. Rename the copy to whatever your playlist is called.
