# WHAT IS COLORFUL MEDIA SET ?
COLORFUL is a complete and coherent high quality graphic set, around a unique design.¬†Made with love in France. I hope you like it !¬†ūüėė
Here are planned development axes:
COLORFUL_Banner_v2.thumb.jpg.cc3347194aedf12be1e85d8640be0d23.jpg

  • COLORFUL Theme¬†:¬†The main hub, a unique interface for BigBox.
  • COLORFUL Platform Video :¬†Complete 4K video set, with a unique design.
  • COLORFUL Source : To involve the community in the platform video creation. (new)
  • COLORFUL BigBox Startup Video : (soon)
  • COLORFUL Startup Theme : (soon)
  • COLORFUL Pause Theme : (soon)

 

# HERE IS COLORFUL THEME FOR BIGBOX:
On this page we are talking about COLORFUL Theme for BigBox:
Design for work with my platform video set, COLORFUL THEME is thought to be used on the big screen (TV) in gaming console mode.
Modern, elegant and animated are the key words of this interface.

 

# I NEED YOUR HELP : PATREON ?
Same problem as with my video set !
Creating  videos & theme takes a loooooot of time. And I have to deal with a full-time CGI artist job and 2 young kids.
So I opened a Patreon page that could allow me to dedicate days on my work time to continue creating video.
I'm not trying to get rich, but like everyone else, I cant spend 1 day/week working for free! I hope you understand.
If the project interests you: Here is my Patreon page.

 

 

# IN DETAIL ?
The main features :

  • 16:9 only. (Works on other¬†ratio, but with black bands)
  • Full 4K asset.¬†(Any resolution must work, 4K assets)
  • Totally responsive. No resolution deformation on text size or¬†placement.
  • Because of the white/black background, some ClearLogo comes with the theme.
  • Gamepad connection indicator & battery level.

 

# RECOMMENDATION ?
Any design choice gives limitations. Here are some recommendations for this theme :

  • LaunchBox/BigBox v.10.0 (and up)
  • VLC highly recommended.
  • Design for work with COLORFUL platform video set. (but you can use any video you what)
  • Beware of full white/black ClearLogo. They will be invisible on Light/Dark views!
  • I didnt test this¬†theme on a lowend configuration. There may be slowdown. (Curious to have your feedback on this subject!)

 

# COOL, HOW TO DOWNLOAD ?
2 ways : 

  1.  In Windows : Right here, with the download button. Extract the "Colorful" folder and place it in your "LaunchBox/Themes" directory.   (dont rename it!)
  2.  In BigBox : Option > Theme manager > Found "COLORFUL - Light" or "COLORFUL - Dark". 

 

# SPECIAL THANKS !

  • @Jason Carr¬†for his hard work on LaunchBox/BigBox! Thx man!
  • To all Patreon guys! A GIANT THANKS to all of you!!! ūüėć
  • The whote community for yout support!

Hi, thanks for this awesome theme ! I have one bug though : the "A" button of the "Press A" platform view does not show ; I have it in LaunchBox\Themes\Colorful\Colorful_img\Colorful_PlatformWheel1_ButtonStart_XBox.png though. Any idea ?

@Tromzy : Strange bug ... In general, either you have nothing, or you have everything! The problem continues after reboot BigBox? Or refresh the image cache?

@zetec-s-joe¬†: Thx !!!¬† ūüėÉ

@Cyril1979 : Merci pour le commentaire et la vidéo !!

@dov_EL : I'm not sure I understand. Which final version? I only posted the BETA version...
If you're talking about a problem with the "BigBox Theme Manager" version, I'm aware of it. I think the mistake comes from me by giving a wrong name to the ZIP archive containing the theme. Look in your folder "Launchbox / themes / ...". The folder containing my theme should be name "Colorful". Only this.

Stunning theme, thank you. 

 

I tried to install from theme manager but had issues, even after reboot, refresh images. 

 

I downloaded the Zip from here and installed it that way and everything looks and works fine. 

 

You will probably get a few people asking as the official Launchbox Youtube channel has a video showing how to install your theme via theme manager in the latest 10.0 release video.

 

Thanks again.

Yes, an error on my part during the upload. I corrected it, we just have to wait for Jason to validate the change in the backoffice.
By the way,¬†these are exactly the same version here and in BigBox. Both in BETA¬†ūüėÄ

¬†:¬†Honestly, I have no idea where the problem comes from. It's very strange! That all images are displayed well, except this one!? I dont know what to answer you.¬†ūüėü

 

I found the problem and solved it !! For some reason, my platform view was set to "Platform Wheel2" instead of 1. Setting it to 1 makes the button appear ! Thank you for trying to help ! :D
