Custom Background on Launchbox

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I brought the Launchbox premium on Black Friday and I am loving it so far. One question I have, is I dont seem to be able to change my custom background, which I want to have as one stattic picture for all my platforms. I have downloaded the Launchbox theme "Neon Deluxe Arcade LB" and I can only use the default image, when I select custom background and browse to the file, the background is not changing. I have attached a couple of screenshots, which I am hoping will help. Thank you.

Thanks for all your hard work. It is very much appreciated

Steven

It's because you are using a custom theme that assigns it's own background in the theme code. So you cant change it without editing the theme code.

Ah ok, thanks for your quick reply. I just thought seen as the theme came with multiple backgrounds, I would be able to do this. Every day is a school day, cheers!!!!

The default theme allows it, but its totally up to theme creators if they allow it or not, some have a specific aesthetic they want and include there own image that is coded to be used at all times.

In the description of the theme I wrote the following: 

This theme does not use fanart or platform backgrounds but a static 4K quality background, there are 7 backgrounds to choose from in the themes images folder, the image you want to display should be named "Background-01.jpg".
