Anybody port coinops next or arcadia to LB?

Recommended Posts

I love the artwork in coinops next and arcadia but i like launchbox better as a frontend.  Just curious if anyone has ported this as a “theme” to launchbox or knows a way to do it.

Hi!

I am actually doing that. I started on XAML directly, but then I tried the community theme creator by  @y2guruand it convinced me. I am posting a small video here of the wheels view (wip).

It will take me sometime, though, as my availability for side projects is quite limited.

Best!

Beautiful work! @CMOSS any chance of releasing an alpha or the source? As I have some free time now I am in lock down! 😛

I've been looking for a side by side comparison of these 2 font ends by someone with more technical skills, but no success. I have a BigBox license, but settled on CoinOPS Next for my livingroom NUC because everything works out of the box.

Make a Coinops platform with shortcuts to each Coinops packs.

Snag up a random rom file and run the usual import rom file option but name the platform CoinOps

Drag n Drop your Coinops shortcuts into this platform and delete the dummy rom file you used to get the platform started.

Updating my Coinops platform and sharing it with everyone is a near future priority so keep posted ..
