Custom default Image for games without image.


Recommended Posts

Hi! i would like to know if is there an easy way to use a default 2D Box/flyer image for all games without image. I know i could create multiples copies of this image with the name of each game, but this would be a waste of time and disk space.

The best would be to use an image named something like _Default.png and that's it!

An example:

LB allows you to use a default image for a few image options like Box, 3D box, Cart and 3D Cart. Just right click on the platform name. Then in the right part of the window with the game images click to add a new image and then choose the default option you want. Then add the image.

Also there is this.

 

 

Thank you very much! 

All the consoles has at least 2D Box complete, so i will need it better for computer platforms. 

But it's a very interesting link. ;)

By the way, the LaunchBox Games Database has boxart (2D and 3D) for Aggressor and Air Supremacy. You may find this box cover a bit better than the database's current one.

It was just an example, but thanks! ;)

I like what you have done. Just a suggestion, but underneith the system picture how about adding the wording "Box Art not available"

Thanks! 

 

I understand what you mean, but i personally prefer to keep it as simple as possible.

Is easy to identify this kind of  "flat" covers means "Box Art not available", but anyone can modify and add it very easy. 

This is the aspect it has if using this covers:
