CoinOps Redux [4x3]

View File

What is it?

4x3 optimised version of the CoinOps Redux theme (port of CoinOps Next to BigBox), co-created with @Klopjero.

The theme has been developed using the Community Theme Creator (all the credit to @y2guru).

As in the case of CoinOps, it relies on 1120x1080 fanart images for game wheel views.

Big thanks to BritneysPAIRS and the CoinOps team for their work in CoinOps and for their amazing theme design.

Views

It includes the following BigBox views:

- 4 platform views.

- 2 game wheels for arcade based systems.

- 2 horizontal game wheels.

- Systems view.

For platform views, we suggest to use @viking colorful videos (4x3 version).

Files available

[CoinOps Redux (4x3) - 1.0.zip] The BigBox theme files. Just uncompress and copy / paste to Launchbox\Themes folder.

I love this theme on my cab using my LCD game monitor at 1024 x 768. I would like to have a static background image appear for all my MAME games that I created a simple favorites playlist for. I am using the view of the arcade cabinet with clear logos on a vertical wheel. I am unsure how to do this. Can anyone help steer me in the right direction? 

Many thanks.

You would need a specific view for this. If you give me the exact name of that playlist I can build it and send it to you.

Wow that would be great! I just called the playlist 'Favorites' and it contains about 125 MAME classics. The static image I have and want to use is a CGI generated picture of an 80s arcade that I have always liked. Thanks!

Hi @jdsabin1

Here you are. Copy the uncompressed xaml file into the Views\WheelGamesView folder of the theme.

imagen.thumb.png.71ab452ce51f0a41e47605db6f3242a6.pngFor the cover image, rename the one that you want to "_favorites.png" and put it inside the Media\GameCovers folder.

Enjoy!

Is there a way to have the background videos play without the washed out filter?  The videos currently appear very "white" and I would love to have them play as original.

Thanks

 

Hi! If you mean the scanlines on the Arcade monitor, then yes. Go to your launchbox/themes/Coinops installation, open the Media/Cabinet folder, and rename (to anything different) the images that start with scanlines.

Excellent theme! If I may ask, is there a way to disable the "fade-out" to the background videos in the platform wheel? I'd like to always have the platform videos start immediately without a background fading out. Thanks!

Hi @akera099!

We will distribute the community theme creator files soon, so that you can change it to your will.
