Think I found a bug.

Just updated both of my cabinets.   Now in BigBox - the 'back' (ESC is what I have it bound too) no longer works.    One cabinet is on the new 'Default' theme, the other is on the 'Old Default' theme. 
So I can select a platform / game, but can't go back.  :)

@Jason Carr Just tested out this new beta with BigBox and I'm having a weird issue. After going into a games list, for some reason the 'esc' key isn't working for me and I'm unable to go back to any previous screens. I tested this out a few different times but the result is the same. It might just be me but I've never had this issue until this recent beta update.

Update: Okay, now I noticed that another user (Fursphere) is having the same issue so I guess it's not an isolated problem

Thanks for the reports. I have been able to confirm the cause for most of these reports and another beta will be out soon to correct. If I run into a report I can't replicate I'll ping the reporter so we can get more information and get the issue resolved. We appreciate you all taking the time to download the beta and report these issues. This beta especially has a FAR larger number of files updated, added, or removed than most of our releases so appreciate having the extra eyes on it.

Can also confirm that the 'esc' key is working again and the "navigation issue" has been resolved :) Thanks a lot for the latest beta-fix and the new default theme in BigBox looks very nice!

Your reported issues should be corrected in this beta release. Please review and let us know if this release corrects your issues or not.

@C-Beats

The error is gone, I can change themes now. But as soon as I go to options Bigbox crashes completely.
With the default theme I get the error message even if I select a system.
But it must be the language German, I switch to English, it works without problems.
My Repsekt for the quick bug fix :)

I have created a video to help
