Recommended Posts

I have been building a new 6tb setup and as a result have had to create some artwork for a few things that are not on the XBMC4Gamers Artwork Installer.  Credit to @sweetdarkdestiny for a lot of the work on the original art for the app packs. Some of the art used for a few of the Emu packs is based on existing artwork from a pack found on EmuXtras created by Rooftop.

Each pack includes all the different art needed for XBMC4Gamers, 3D covers etc. Most include screenshots too. Lamborghini also has a preview video. They also have a default.xml for the synopsis. Actual title ids have been used where available, while others have been made up on the spot 😁

Thought I would share them here :)

Download all the packs here - XBMC4Gamers Custom Artwork

UPDATE 15/01 Artwork added for Re-Volt (Unreleased Game)

UPDATE 17/01 Added Tomb Raider 2 &3 (Open Lara) (Currently missing video previews, will be added at a later date once I set up my capture stuff again) :)

UPDATE 19/01 Added art for the unreleased games Project Velocity, Fast and Furious, Storm Riders and the English version of Dinosaur Hunting.

UPDATE 20/01 Added Art for EXChaser (JPN) - Full pack inc preview.

Update 23/01/24 Added art pack for Tenchu 3 - Kaiki no Shou.

Update 04/02/24 Added Insignia Setup Assistant and Alternate (Credit to @sweetdarkdestiny for the Alt).

Update 06/02/24 Added Atari Jaguar, SAM Coupe, TI-99 and Final Burn Consoles(Neo Geo AES). Front cover art used in these is originally from a pack by Rooftop over on EmuXtras.

Download all the packs here - XBMC4Gamers Custom Artwork

The coinops emulator packs are available at backups.me if you want them. ;) 

Most will have screenshots, Apps/Emus do not have previews.. default.xml's should be good to go too. If you spot anything out of place let me know so I can fix it :) 

The title ID's in the synopsis are completely made up :)

To use the art packs just copy the _resources folder to the game/app root folder, run XBMC4Gamers, go to the game/app, push the White button and select "Refresh Synopsis Info"

I've got the artwork making process down now (afaik) so if you have any app or anything that is missing art that is not available on the official artwork installer then put a message below and I MIGHT be tempted to make the art for you (if I can find good enough source material (logo's etc)) No promises tho :)

It seems like the super mario 64 is already on there by the fact that a lot of applications that have no art will get the art and name for mario 64. It's actually super annoying to have 5-10 apps of mine rename themselves all to Mario 64 and change the artwork every time you update it through the installer... Then you need to manually rename them all and delete the art.

I haven't had that issue myself. Hence why I went and created a set of art. I will have to look into the files from the Artwork Installer and see if it has any files for Mario. It's probably better than mine anyway so I don't mind overwriting my effort lol.

Would you share the art you have done somewhere please? Or is there a link out there already that I haven't found yet? :)

Maybe I can finish of the ones you didn't get done....

So I found the Mario 64 that is in the Art Installer. Have zero idea why I didn't notice it was there before..... Think I need to get some glasses lol. Anyway I think I prefer my cover for it lol. 

Also I should add that I didn't include any of the cd/cdposter/cd_small.png's In my art as the generic one is fine that shows up in the dash anyway :)

Shouldn’t need to rename them with the v2.0 stable. It will use the xbe name if no resources are found. 
 

but the artwork installer should be skipping stuff that doesn’t match within 80% of the folder name or xbe name. (Redownload artwork installer the update if it’s not)

 

@nikeymikeydoes yours have the alt_synospsis.jpg? ie are you on the latest version of the artwork process stuff?

I take it you are meaning my Mario art? If so then yes its has an alt_synopsis.jpg. see attached.

For the artwork process stuff, do you mean the artwork builder.zip from github/google drive? Again if so then yes. 

I have been resizing and renaming everything manually though as I could not get any of the  "build XXXX" batch files to work with anything custom such as the ones in the 1st post.

@Rocky5 Forgot to add, also not only can I not get the batch files to run, I also cannot get the "Open Case Back (Disc)" to complete either. As far as I know I am using the correct version of Photoshop that you mentioned in another thread and all the other automations work perfectly. I have come up with a work around but if I could get that one working , along with those batch files it would be a lot easier/quicker lol

Any suggestions?

Edit: Oh, from the decompilation/reverse-engineering project. I remember that. Guess it got ported over. VERY fuckin' cool.  I can't find it hosted anywhere. Can anybody help me?

believe it or not that is the actual artwork image used on the default.tbn in the Coinops 8 Adult Ed. I was lucky to find the exact same image so used it for the XBMC4Gamers version :)

The default.tbn is at a silly angle tho and I couldn't be arsed to try and correct it.. I have attached it for you seeing as you like that one so much :D 

Default.png

I might do another version of mine with the "Coinops" at the bottom now I've seen this one again lol

Hopefully rocky can point out why the art building batch files wont work for me so I can speed up the process a bit. I have around 30 app covers waiting to be processed.....

This was last week when I got a fresh install of the artwork installer and did a "find all missing artwork". It changed about half of my applications to Mario64 for the name and pictures. Is this v2.0 not the latest version available through the url downloader on the console? Do I need to get it elsewhere?

The folder goes on the root of C for the one that processes the scans into assets for the artwork builder source to build into Xbox artwork. The builds artwork folder with all the bat files can be anywhere, but you need to install imagemagick that comes with it or they won’t work. (That version as the newer ones don’t work and u would need to change stuff)

 

don’t get errors or what happens when you run the bat files? (Or batch process in photoshop with the PSD’s. You did add the actions file?)

V3.1 is the latest, has nee processed artwork and videos with a few notes apps added, plus’s it fuzzes names, so the xbes with all zero title ids won’t all end up as Mario 😂 or XblastOS 🙈.

The joys of a lot of homebrew and applications all using the same titkeids 😑 am sure most off the homebrew on the downloader have a titleid override file, you can add one to stuff you don’t want processed, just put a random ID in there and the artwork installer won’t find it. 
 

Oh and yes downloader is where you get it all.

I have fixed the issue with the "Open Case Back (Disc)" automation not running.... my cd images were jpg, as soon as I changed to png it worked perfectly. Dumbass user error there on my part ffs lol.  I know have all the photoshop PSD batch actions working. :)

Now onto the other issue lol... The batch files for building the artwork. These will run but ONLY ever process the example art that comes with the pack. So the MS Dash and 007. None of my custom art ever gets picked up.

I have copied the created art folders from the Create _Resources Artwork folder into the same folder as the batch files. Dropped the folder onto the batch file and it runs but only your included art ever gets actually processed. I have attached a video file to show you exactly what is happening. :)

I must be missing something here? I need to make this work as this will save lots of time lol :)

Thanks for all the help you have given me so far with this and thanks in advance for any more lol :P

Yeah you need to name them a certain way. Well they all need to match.

 

MSDash-MT for example for all files related to that games/app.

the above will process them and create a thumb image at middle top of the poster image. (You work out where you have a logo or something people will know what game it is)

also it uses the poster images to process the rest. All images must be png, bar the scans files.

Ah the problem might be in some of my images not being png. They are all named the same tho. 

Will see how i get on with changing them all to png :)

 

EDIT- @Rocky5 All images are already png. Also all names match. Will have a play around with it a bit more but it seems it just doesn't like me lol

EDIT 2 - FIXED IT!! I had to add -T to ALL the filenames (xxxxxx-T.png) and IT WORKED!!!

-T = top

-MT = middle top

-M = middle

-MB = middle bottom

-B = bottom

 

they are required for the process to function. (Hence the name them a certain way 😂)

Aha that makes sense. Luckily the majority of the art I have made has the logo at the top :)

There may be one or two that I need to redo now I know that naming scheme :) 

Again thanks for ALL the help and pointers. I will upload all my _resource pack somewhere and post them here. I have some for Apps that are not in the current installer. Just got to do fill out the default.xml's and gather some fanart, screenshots and videos now.... so just a little bit of work lol.

use this for processing videos for previews. Saves me having to redo them if I were to add them to the installer. 
(leave configs as is, best settings and will match all mine)

Ok will do! :) 

Any instructions on this? Which bat file should I use? Any specifics needed? :)

Nah just run make preview one (without region) it will make a 2 folders, plonk your videos in the input files folder and run it. 
 

it will auto crop videos, add a fade in and out (audio also) and reduce there size for the preview window. Also smaller size and good quality even on a 55” screen.

I now have the ability to Edit the first post, Yay!! I will be adding more art to the thread later. These will be App art that isn't in the current installer, there maybe one or two that are variants of ones that are already included too.

Do you know where I can find custom artwork for the game Lamborghini? (The one who was never released and a beta was recently found).

Thanks!

I may be able to put something together for you later on today. I will add it to this thread :)
