Big BoxFront Startup Theme

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Hey there!

Something very simple: A startup theme that shows a very big front cover when starting a game.

 

To me, using a launcher - and especially an excellent one like LaunchBox - means virtualizing the act of starting a game. Not just double-clicking a shortcut or ROM. Scrolling through my game boxes with their beautiful artwork.
And then, when I choose to play a game, taking the box, admiring it, before playing the game.

This is what I tried to emulate with my startup theme: Choosing a game, getting the box and admiring the artwork as large as possible.

No loading text - just a dimmed fanart background and the logo in the upper left corner.

 

Hope you like it!

Good job @Pat.

I recommend you to create a File in the Downloads section with this, and add some preview images of the startup and shutdown; more users will see it and download it :)
