Its probably due to your image priority settings in Launchbox, its falling back to a disc image when another image is not available, per your settings.

I don't think so because for all my games in this liste,the boxfront is available and well defined as BoxFront type.

Anyway I see it in others theme, for exemple retrotastic.

Sorry for my English, I have a problem with the Sony PlayStation theme, which skips several errors in which the subject is not displayed correctly.

Hi! I just discovered this theme and it's fantastic! Is there a way I can make it work in 4:3? 

Unfortunately, it would be a great undertaking to convert this theme to 4:3.

Hi! I love this theme very much, but I have a little problem.
I don't know why, but when I choose this theme, the icons of the play mode are missing in all the platforms...
but in the directories of the theme have the directory of Icons (\Themes\CoverBox\Images\Icons). :(


(sorry for my english.)

C'est parce-que les icônes de modes de jeu de Coverbox ne s'affichent que lorsque les modes de jeux sont en anglais  :"Single Player", "multiplayer"...etc

Il fait éditer les XML de chaque plateforme et remplacer les occurrences de playmode anglais par les termes français que tu utilise.

Si c'est compliqué pour toi, dis le moi, on essaiera de trouver une solution.

Hey faeran, thanks for continuing to update these. I've noticed on a couple of systems, the bottom of the text/overview scrolling is cut off a bit. Could that be a resolution issue? I'm running it at 4K.

Hi @TheNewClassics. That's a good possibility. Do you have the ability to change your resolution to 1080p, then open up BigBox and test?

Hey, sorry if I missed this somewhere (I'm still very new to BigBox) but is there a way to remove the clear logos on your theme?

Also, is there a way to enable the game text description like on your YouTube Demo video (specifically the NES one) as it switches about halfway though.

Hi @ProstatePunch. Custom themes are hard coded. To remove clear logos, you would have to go into each platform specific xaml file and remove the code for them.

If you would like to use the NES view with the description, I left that view file in the following location:

Launchbox\Themes\CoverBox\Views\TextGamesView\Alternate\Nintendo Entertainment System.xaml

paste it here:

Launchbox\Themes\CoverBox\Views\TextGamesView\Nintendo Entertainment System.xaml

Hey @faeran, I was wondering if you could set some of the platform themes to work for very similar platforms. For example if you could have the nintendo 64 theme work with the 64DD platform or the SNES theme work for the Satellaview. This is something I used to do myself when the themes wer eindividual, but is a little harder now with the themes being combined into one. Regardless thanks again for creating this fantastic theme!

Just an FYI, while your waiting for a reply from faeran, you can do this yourself by copying and renaming a few files in the theme's folders.  In the theme's Views folder there are two sub folders with xaml files you can copy/rename (those folders are TextGamesView and TextListView).  In both those folders you will find an xaml file called Nintendo 64.xaml (as an example).  Just make a copy of that file in the same folder and then rename that copy to the name of the platform you want to use that view (eg. Nintendo 64DD.xaml).  Do this to the files in both folders so that your theme will work on all views.

Thanks @GiuseppeIII. @CDBlue is correct. Just need to make a copy and rename the files within those 2 directories.

I will do this for the next official release, for these 2 platforms. Let me know if any other's can be added like this as well.

This worked awesome!  Love that we have the choice of that, and it looks great.  Thank you!

Can I request an official Famicom Disk System Theme?  I know I just copy over the NES theme, but its seems like there's plenty of stuff out there for a Famicom Version, so I'd probably just use that if there was one.  Have you poked into it at all @faeran?

I've actually been working secretly on a major update to this theme. It will include 2 extra platform views, changes to existing game views, and a bunch of new game views, including the Famicom Disk System. Here's a sneak peak of the disk system theme.1532978088_NintendoFamicomDiskSystem.thumb.png.20940a289864e6063ccf60ba8905dafc.png
