    LaunchBox Plugin Overhaul for 9.2-beta-3

    Thanks for looking into it. I guess i'll have to double check everything. Anyways great work on the fade ins and load screens. Bigbox is looking smoother then ever with a beautiful transitioning flow now.

    I downloaded the file and extracted it to LBthemes folder but when I launch Big Box it's not an option in themes. I see it in the folder next to default

    Gotcha, @neil9000 mentioned this as well. Now that I know it's the list view I can look into it. On my list.

    Make sure you're on the latest beta, as it sounds like you're missing the features in beta 4.

    LaunchBox Plugin Overhaul for 9.2-beta-3

    That's pretty weird. I just tested to be sure and I can't replicate that issue with the betas. Do you have any plugins installed?

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Sounds almost like what happens with me for the longest when I Edit a game and then hit Random to another game, and if you don't wait for things to change of the newly Edited details then you'll get switched back to the previous game you just Edited. At one time it seemed to be fixed, but seems that issue is back. I'm also not sure if it's just my Laptop or what, but I also am back to it stretching and buffering to an almost unresponsive state after I Edit a game. I haven't had my Laptop off for about 2 weeks, and I restarted it last night for Window 10's Update to where Beta 3 seemed messed up to where almost nothing wanted to Launch. After all that I it seems things are somewhat better but things are running kinda slow now. I always have LaunchBox open when my Laptop on since I constantly go back and Edit so much of what I have and all that, so I may have to find time to just turn the Laptop off for a few hours even though my schedule is a constant rush in which I forget to turn it off as I leave out to take care of stuff

    LaunchBox Plugin Overhaul for 9.2-beta-3

    This is great news. I've been meaning to write another plugin... and maybe add some enhancements or fix some bugs in my existing ones.
  9. Although not LB, there are programs (free) like Calibre that provide graphic bookshelf formats via webserver with book covers and point click download/read of all major ebook formats. The main utility has scrapers to download book covers, isbn, book data, etc for ebooks so might be idea for those that are coders to see how it uses the various APIs. I saw some plugins for loan-out libraries but haven't tried that. Interface isn't quite as elegant as LB but I typically only use as "home library" which browse with iPad, download, and read on portable device rather than via web server viewer. One advantage of it over say a LB model is that can browse to it from any device on internal network without having to install anything on client side.

    With the latest beta, the startup screens have a much improved loading time. Just tried retroarch with a few different cores and the startup screen now displays for more than 2 seconds. @Jason Carr great work once again!

    +1. With some emulators the start up screen lasts for less than a second. Sorta takes away the beauty of it all. Maybe a per platform delay as RA has multiple cores with different load times. Great start me likes
  14. If you are trying to run Mame directly in Launcbox without RocketLauncher check to make sure you have the platform name in the associate platform tab of the mame emulator. Go to the edit emulators option in Launchbox. Edit the mame emulator you have set up and make sure in the Associated Platforms tab you have the name of the platform for those games exactly as you have it named in Launchbox.

    You cannot manually add games to a playlist set to "Auto-populate". You have to edit the playlist and convert it to manual.

    LaunchBox Plugin Overhaul for 9.2-beta-3

    @Jason Carr I was about to make a new thread from your response but I did what you recommended and removed all controllers and used Keyboard only and the games still Autoloaded on the Favs and Recent on the main default. I then moved over to my fresh install on my GPDwin2 which had official 9.1 release and it didn't autoboot my games. But soon as I updated to the latest Beta my games are now autobooting on my GPDwin2 on the main wheel Favs and Recent like my other setups. Seems like when the wheel wants to spin it triggers to load a game? It takes like 90secs on my GPDwin2 to trigger the autoboot. The games don't autoboot on any other menu or wheel. So I figured this is still a recent Beta issue. I even turned off Game Startup load screens but games still autoboot no matter the theme. If this still persists then I'll make a thread.

    Loving the new startup options with the new beta...seems to working great. I am actually really impressed that the startup screens have came so far in so short of an amount of time. Great job @Jason Carr!!!

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Beta 4 is out now with some more major improvements for startup screens: Added themes for shutdown screens Added global settings in both LaunchBox and Big Box for Minimum Startup Screen Display Time and Minimum Shutdown Screen Display Time Made the extraction progress bar smoother towards the end Added a better description in the Edit Emulator Game Startup Screen tab for the Startup Delay setting Better resource management for startup screens should result in them being completely removed from memory when closed Fix for potential issue where the mouse cursor would not show back up if an error occurs while the game is launched Duplicate startup prevention when spamming the play button Pressing random keys or mouse buttons on the startup screen or during the startup process should no longer hijack focus and prevent the game from being displayed For the shutdown screens, they work the same way as the startup screens do for themes. Shutdown screens will use the same selected theme as the startup screens, and just use "Default Shutdown.xaml" or "Nintendo Entertainment System Shutdown.xaml" instead of the versions for startup screen without "Shutdown" appended. The startup screens are working amazingly well at this point in my testing, so I'm very pleased with where we're at. There are some more items to tackle, but I believe we're nearing the end. I'll update the first post of this topic again for status. Please let me know if you find a particular game or emulator that is not working well with the new startup screens.

    Sadly I can't replicate this (the arrow keys work properly after using letter shortcuts for me), so it's gonna be one of those finicky issues to fix. I suspect that it's somehow system-specific. If anyone else wants to try and replicate this to see if we can narrow it down any, I'm all ears. Shortcut letter keys for platform names is a new request I believe. I'll add it to my list but I probably won't be able to tackle it soon unless it proves to be a more common request.

    @Merc33 If you would, please create a separate thread for this as this is not a troubleshooting thread. That said, I'm honestly very doubtful that this is a glitch with LaunchBox or Big Box. I would first try disabling game controllers in Big Box to see if maybe it's being caused by a stray controller or something of that nature. If you are convinced it's an issue with the betas, then the next step would be to install the latest 9.1 official release to see if you have the same issue.

    Play List Help

    I’m trying to move two games from a platform SNK Neo Geo AES to the auto generated playlist of SNK Neo Geo MVS, which was populated during my MAME import. I right click the game, go to add to playlist and SNK Neo Geo MVS. It says the game has been added but does not show up in the list. I can move the games to Arcade platform but not to the playlist. I it possible I’m missing something?
