Funny, I had finished a Theme for Contra before you uploaded yours and it looks the same :D so I added a little bit more to mine ;)

Here are the next NES Backgrounds. I wanted to have different Backgrounds for Punch-Out and Mike Tyson's Punchout, so I redid fearan's Punch-Out background with some slight changes (for example changing the game logo to "Mike Tyson's Punch-Out) and gave it the Launchbox ID for the Mike Tyson Version.

Also I made 2 Versions of Super Mario Bros. 2 and 3 Backgrounds, one goes with the Artwork in the Game folder that come with Retrotastic and one Version if you delete the Artwork in the game folder.

Enjoy!

I love your work. By the way, can you make these themes available as a download pack, it would make downloading these easy. Thanks in advance.

Yes I was thinking of making a pack download. I want to make a few more backgrounds first though. There are still some classic NES Games missing. ;)

Loving this theme, and the awesome game backgrounds you guys are making!  Hope to contribute a few myself at some point.  I was wondering, would it be possible to have a view without the box art?  The game backgrounds are so great, sometimes it would be nice to not have them blocked.   And/or, is there a setting that can adjust the size of the box art?  Thanks!

Ok, I just uploaded the NES Backgrounds I made as Packs.

I went with the uncompressed versions of the Backgrounds, since compressing them sometimes are giving them artifacts that they didn't have in the uncompressed version.

I got a chance to use these backgrounds, and im loving your hard work, especially the ones that have animated gifs. It would be cool if more objects were animated. I cant wait till you do more games, and are you planning on doing other platforms?

Thank you so much :D

Right now I basicly working on all the NES Games that also have a theme in Hyperspin so I can delete the NES Theme Videos from my harddrive to create more space. After I am done with NES, I will start working on other Platforms and do the same there. Would be nice if someone else chips in on doing themes so we can get more backrounds faster.

I would love to chip in and help, but ive been pretty busy lately and dont really have time that i would like. Hopefully i can get some free time soon, since im also doing clear logos for another theme.

I just updated the NES Backrounds Pack with Part 3. Those include 48 new Backrounds such as the Ninja Gaiden Games, Nintendo World Cup and more.

Enjoy ;)

Hi, I have a problem with disc images.

When I delete a disc image for a game, it continues to appear on bigbox in the game view with disk animation.

It only happens to me with this theme.

I've already tried to update the cache in the bigbox options on "Images Cache" but the old disk image remains. Is there a way to force image cache updating?

 

Thanks

You will also want to delete it from the theme's cache, which is located here:
