Preview of the RetroBox theme for RetroFE

About two month ago I posted some screenshots of a new theme for RetroFE I’m working on called RetroBox. Here you can see a video of how it works!

For those of you who don’t know, RetroFE is an arcade front end like HyperSpin or BigBox. My main objective is to create a stunning and straightforward theme that makes it easy and fun to browse a tremendous collection of games. Since I couldn’t find any decent themes for non-widescreen monitors, I decided to make my own.

Challenges

The biggest challenge is finding all the media such as images, video’s and descriptions (stories). Without it, no theme looks good and this one is no exception. I’ve spend a lot of time writing software that crawls the web for all kinds of media and I’m starting to get a decent collection. Once a collection is complete, according to the hyperspin XML file, I’ll add it to my arcade and configure the rest like emulator and controls. Stay tuned for more updates. 🙂
