Hi all, I'm also seeing DragoonDemon4's issue. It seems that consistently after setting the theme once, and then exiting BigBox, the theme starts freezing after selecting a platform or backing out to the Options menu, just like he said. Sometimes it will even start it doing this without having ever been closed. I saw someone in the Discord who had the same issue and said reinstalling LB helps. I did that and nothing was fixed, but I do know that deleting your BigBoxSettings.xml "fixes it" in the sense that it will work once again after you first apply it, and then never again. Does anyone have insight on this issue and how to possibly solve it? Long story short: The theme starts freezing when backing up to the options menu or selecting a platform after closing out of it once, otherwise after using it for about an hour.

Hi, I'm having an issue with the theme where when I select a platform bigbox freezes on the default grey background until I click out of it on my desktop.  I also have to click out then on when I enter the pause menu.  Any idea what's going on and how to fix?  Tried repairing it already if that helps.

Are you running a stable release or the current beta?

I'm running the most recent release available through the BigBox downloader, so 3.11.  I also heard from TickBoy that a number of other themes are having the same issue, and it might be something related to BigBox losing windows focus.

If running a stable release would potentially fix the problem, where would I find one?  The only version I can find right now is 3.11.

Kind of sounds like you are referring Retrotastic version? It would be LaunchBox you would have to find the stable release for.

The latest stable release of LaunchBox is 11.9 - Retroastic works well in this build.

The current beta version of LaunchBox is 11.10-beta-6 - Retrotastic has issues with freezing due to the secondary overlay video in the platform views.

Check your version of LaunchBox and see if you are on a beta release. If you are and don't want to deal with buggy beta releases, you may want to opt out of them.

Nice work for your Theme, I really appreciate. 


Can you tell me how we can modify front box size ? Because on some platform it's really too big and I can't see the cart at the bottom of the screen.
