  1. Past hour
  2. Ok so i go things to work by unchecking "dont use quotations" However some roms dont work as they need a different mame core i assume. Anyway to set this for platform categorys?
  3. It works for me as well, although in some games, I start to play for let's say 30 seconds, LB window "closing game" pops up, and the Cxbx screen goes windowed from fullscreen, but game is still running. So something is causing LB to close and something makes Cxbx still run, although in windowed mode.
  4. Today
  5. Indeed! Isn't launchbox just such a breeze compared to HS ? The interface is just leaps and bounds beyond it. I don't think I could ever go back.
  6. Hi All. hoping someone can assist. Im currently using mame emulator to run my arcade roms, but im trying to switch them over to retroarch to take advantage of acheivements. i dont have any issues launching the roms directly from retroarch and have all the bios in the system directory and the game chds in the roms folder. But for the life of me i cant get them to run via launchbox. Note: i have double checked associated platform and platform name (running mame plus core)
  7. I didn't see anyone else having this issue so I wasn't sure if it was just me, but when opening a game with Nebula's Sega Model 2 emulator the window border was still visible. I added the following snippet to the "Running Autohotkey Script" tab for the emulator. This will maximize the window so a true full screen is shown. ; This section maximizes the game window on startup Sleep, 500 Send {LWin down} {Up} {LWin up} Return
  8. You can find bezels at Emumovies. Or in a MAME set in the artwork section, MAME extras set has them too.
  9. Welcome to the bright side of life 😉
  10. TOSECs are a pain to go through, that's right. The only time I used a TOSEC was for the C64, as that's still one of my favorite systems, childhood memories and stuff, so I wanted to be sure to go through everything and not missing out a game I didn't know so far. But pain it was indeed. Once it was done though, I felt like a king 😁 Just to mention, I didn't keep every single game though, just the ones I want, still talking about around 2.000 games.
  11. I had an interesting idea the other day while talking about text adventures on the Zomb's Lair Discord - many of them have no sound or music, so the thought occurred to me that maybe I could sortof pipe in my own appropriate background SID music to help set the mood a bit better. I found a nice tiny SID player that runs directly from CMD called libsidplayfp so I can basically start this as part of a game's .bat, tell it to start a specific SID track (which loops), use an AHK script to watch for Retroarch to close and then close it and the AHK script. I already have this working, at this point it's just a matter of getting tracks picked out. I've found four so far that I like and would be appropriate (below). I'll be looking for more and am open to suggestions. I want stuff that's 1) relatively slow and low-key/atmospheric and 2) are original compositions not from game soundtracks. If anyone wants to help look for more and make any suggestions, a good place to start is the Unepic SID Channel which has over 50,000 SID tracks (!) uploaded, which you can go through in a single playlist if you go here.

  14. Same, per separate thread I'd love to see a category for old chess machines and handheld led/lcd games from the late 70's - early 90's.

  16. @JoeViking245 Thankyou so much for taking the time to test this out and post it going to do as you have mentioned above hope this helps future noobs with this problem aswell
  17. You're very welcome! Yeah I make the web version the default since the magazines are now a separate module. If you download the local versions you can right-click on an entry in LB and choose [Magazine Name] (Local) to launch them. If you wanted to make them the default launch, that's easy enough to do. You can do this on an individual basis by editing them, going to additional apps, selecting the local version and choosing "make default". If you wanted to do this en masse, you'd probably want to use something like Notepad++ and then open up C64 Dreams\C64 Dreams\Data\Platforms\Magazines.xml and do a find and replace all for " (Web Version).url" with ".vbs" Make sure you include the space before (Web Version). I would recommend backing up your .xml before doing this to be safe. You would need to again open up C64 Dreams\C64 Dreams\Data\Platforms\Magazines.xml in Notepad++ and do a find and replace of: <ApplicationPath>C64 Dreams\Magazines with <ApplicationPath>[your new path]\Magazines Everything is setup with relative paths so the Magazine folder will work unaltered so long as you've got everything included (i.e. everything in the folder including !CDisplayEx, the .bats, etc.). In other words, just make sure that you move the Magazines folder in its entirety (not just the .cbrs by themselves).
  18. Another request, 3DO one this time please: Thanks.
  19. Is there something going on with the Database? Seems things are taking forever to submit now

  22. Here's hoping #28 makes it in before the next poll...
  23. This looks FANTSTIC! Unfortunately, I can't get the GUI to work. I installed Python and followed all the stups, but when I run "retool-gui.py" it looks like a cmd window flutters open momentarily and then closes.
