Starting The Game

View File

This is my first startup theme that I’ve work on. I use Viking's COLORFUL Theme Dark for my Launchbox setup and I wanted a startup theme that uses the same colours, so I made this.

Big system logo on the left side
Developers logo in the bottom right corner
Load-bar and background uses the same colour as “COLORFUL platform video set”

Unzip the “StartingTheGame-Dark.zip” to your “..\Lunchbox\StartupThemes\“ folder. In Launchbox/BigBog select StartingTheGame-Dark as your startup theme and your good to go.

If you are using 1.0 or 1.01 please close launchbox/bigbox. Delete the startup theme and install the new one. On future release it should be fine to just extract and replace

Aspect Ratio:
This startup theme is made with 16:9 in mind, but you may not be using 16:9. If I can I'll add what you need to mod here. I'll add more if and when they are needed.

16:10 (1280×800, 1440×900, 1680×1050, and 1920×1200):
        <RowDefinition Height="25*" />
        <RowDefinition Height="20*" />
