Big Box for PC games only (replacement for big picture)

Recommended Posts


I have been looking around for a professional looking replacement to Steam Big Picture for a while now (tired of the lack of customization) , and Big Box looks like my best option, with the videos. I have seen two youtube videos of people setting it up but did not explain how. This is for PC games only, not emulation. Is this viable? I know its possible but does it work well? Is it possible to add my own videos demos (preferred), or an online database like emuvideos but for PC? If there was a trial for premium i would test it on my own but i couldn't find one.

Thank you.

Yes it is viable. Yes it works wll. Yes you can add your own videos and works with Emumovies. There is also a plugin that scrapes directly from Steam that you can use with it. No there is no trial the program is DRM free so that isn't feasible.

Bought it. Very nice.

Just wanted to recommend the YouTube Scraper for when there isn't a default video, and if you don't feel like making your own demo video for a specific game. I'm sure you've discovered that lots & lots of games already have videos in the Launch Box database (and EmuMovies, although that's a paid subscription), but some do not. The YouTube Scraper made it a lot easier for me to import videos when I needed to. Just a word of note - sometimes YouTube changes its code, which can break the YouTube Scraper plugin, in which case, check back to see if its been updated to work again.
