  2. Hi all! I am currently making playlists. I would like to be able to make a playlist in a playlist. let me explain. Take for example a street fighter playlist if I take my current collection I have 4 or 5 street fighter alpha 3 I would like to be able to select a single street fighter alpha 3 Logo but that brings me to another play list offers all SFA3 that I have. I don't know if it's complicated but it can do a really nice thing. or choose on launch:)

  4. @mrdead Are you using this version of the plugin? SteamLauncher Alpha v0.9.7.3 http://bit.ly/SLv0973
  5. If you mean core configuration files you have to set it up in LaunchBox. In LaunchBox go to: Tools > Manage EmuLators > RetroArch > Associated Plaforms tab. Then in the "Extra Command-Line Parameter" column add: -c "config\mame_libretro.cfg" (or whatever the core is called).

    You can use the LaunchBox \ BigBox pause screen for that. But because every emulator uses its own hotkeys for saving and loading, you have to set it up per emulator. You can do that in LaunchBox and for popular emulators the hotkeys are already filled in. Then you set up a button (combination) to pull up the pause screen. Alternatively you can use key \ controller mapping software like: JoyToKey, Xpadder or antimicro and bind hotkeys to controller buttons (or button combinations) and make emulator profiles that auto load.
  7. Hello all !! I currently have LB 11.8 and retroarch 1.90. When launching my Mame roms through LB , the config files I created do not open with LB. If I open retrorach outside of launchbox , all of my changes are saved and working . Im not sure how to correct this issue . Has anyone had an issue like this ?
  8. Here is my realistic Arcade bezel for Varth: Operation Thunderstorm using HyperspaceMadness's reflection shaders. The artwork bezel was restored by ArsInvictus
  9. So I added Streets of Rage 4 and Street Fighter IV (steam) to my "arcade" platform via the Launchbox UI. They play fine. However they have disappeared from my list. I readded a second time and the next day it is gone again. Sure enough they aren't in my arcade.xml any longer. I'm definitely not deleting them myself. Any idea how why this is happening?
  10. Been Awhile, so here are some playlist background themes for ya. please DL and enjoy 🙂
  11. Im stressed out of my fucking mind. Everytime i go to install launchbox it says i need to install visual c ++ redistributable...i already have it installed. Problem is my pc for the arcade has no internet connection, so i download and transfer the visual c + + to my arcade pc and installed it, everythings in, but launchbox install still saying i need to download and install visual c + + ....so now i just paid for big box and i cant even use it on my arcade pc because this issue im having im stressed out
  12. This guide is wonderful but I did have aa couple issues. 1) I had to change the unmount script by launcherbox to --remove_all. Other might want to try that if they have issues with that. 2) the -F0 "full path to user disk" doesn't work. I always have to go into the menus in Unz to insert the user disk manually. Does anyone know what the correct commandline for this is?
  13. Jays Arcade Alternate Platform Marquees View File These are some alternate marquees I made for platforms. These were created with the Vertical Aspirations theme in mind, but they can be used anywhere a generic platform marquee is needed. I have included the template and some instructions (Gimp). If you find yourself creating more to fill in any that I've missed (and I've missed plenty I'm sure), please share them in the comments and I will add them to the archive. Most of these were created with the White Trim - Platform Clear Logo Set by @RetroNi. A very good clear logo set I might add. Most of the backgrounds used are from the Platform Box Art Collages/Contact Sheets created by @dragon57. A few of the collage backgrounds (Bally Astrocade, Jukebox, Music, Music Videos and Movies) were created by me. A few more of the collages (mostly pinball) were sourced off the interwebz....

  15. Hi, Just a request , could we be able to assign a button to auto bring up additional applications in box on the game select screen to by pass the game detail screen? This would allow a nicer/smoother flow to open multi-disc games and other applications used.

    Hello, I don’t think I have made a post here since I created a login. For a stand up cabinet pc build. Do you guys know if save states are possible for the games? Also can they be configured to a button press? Like adding a button to the control setup on the cabinet? New to this but have seen a lot on building and stuff. Just have not found anything specific to my question. thank you for tour time.
  17. Hi all, I used the full arcade set importer and left all the things checked to filter out games like mature, tile, dance, etc. After doing the import I have over 2,800 arcade games in LaunchBox. I was wondering if there is a way to filter/sort by input/controller type? I'm using a wireless Xbox 360 controller with my LaunchBox setup and would love it if I can quickly find all the MAME games that were imported that I won't be able to play? I'd like to get rid of games that work with a ball, light gun, etc. etc. so that only games which will easily work on my controller are left. If LaunchBox/BigBox doesn't have a way to do this does anyone have an recommendations for me as to how I can get rid of games I can't play with my controller? I'm hoping to NOT have to go find some list and manually remove games 1-by-1 when we're talking about thousands of games here. I appreciate any help/guidance and thanks in advance.
  18. I went with regular MAME instead of the UI version. I put this in my mame.ini (which I had to create by starting the MAME exe file from the command line, changing something, and then it generated the file): # # CORE ROTATION OPTIONS # rotate 1 ror 0 rol 0 autoror 1 autorol 0 flipx 0 flipy 0 I just opened a game from Launchbox and the game, which is a veritcal shooter, is rotated like I want. So I'll see if the other games that are vertical work the same way. Thanks for the help. I was almost there but like I said, there are a lot of incomplete or incorrect help articles online. I appreciate the help.
  19. Has anyone had an issue where the marquee screen doesn't appear until you go into the BigBox Settings and toggle the Marquee options back and forth? I find this happens every time I start up BigBox. I'm also struggling to get the marquee to align properly on my 1920x502 2nd screen - It's an LG display that Windows does see as that exact resolution, so I don't think I need the grid.
  20. Can we get this please...The current clear logo for all boxarts (all platforms) of this game do not match the actual boxart logo colors They are all grey scale for some reason. https://images.launchbox-app.com/0082816b-3447-4975-b3b8-4634e773a851.jpg
  21. So I was... a little bit disappointed when I went to use the Xbox importer? I know LaunchBox is primarily a launcher but I'd like to use it to catalog games on other consoles as well, so I was really hoping it could... import my 360 and Xbone games! I understand if that's easier said than done, but I thought I'd brought it up in case there was a way to implement that in the future? Just so I don't have to manually import several hundred 360 games...

  23. Also here's a little tip for anybody using HBMAME. You can use the overhauled MAME full-set importer for HBMAME sets now as well. I just tried it out and it worked like a charm. It even merges nicely with your already imported MAME games. Just add HBMAME as an emulator and select it in the full-set importer and you're good to go. But be aware that some games have A LOT of hacks which will clutter up the additional apps entries of a single game very quickly. So it might be a better idea to import your HBMAME set as a separate platform. For example, here's a screenshot of King of Fighters '98 to show you what I mean (notice how you can only see the hacks up to the letter C? You have to scroll down the list for quite a while until you reach the end of it and see the other options of the context menu):
  24. I was waiting for this quality-of-life feature for so long. Thanks for finally adding it! I only noticed that LB ignores everything you type in after you hit the spacebar. For example, when I type in “super mario” it only jumps to the first game that starts with super.
  25. Tell me about it, it makes no sense! I also found that if I drop to desktop on the 4k, open Launchbox desktop mode and launch a game in RetroArch, it's in 4k, but once again if I open BigBox and launch the same game, it's in 720p. A console window pops up for a split second with BigBox, just before launch and I have no idea what it's doing. This is all on a fresh install of Launchbox and I can't seem to find out what's causing the resolution change with BigBox. Edit: I finally found it! For some reason the BigBox exe in the main folder had the High DPI override set for all users. From my remote desktop I changed compatibility properties for all users and unchecked the High DPI override box, which allowed BigBox to run at the desktop resolution.
