  1. Metal Slug Playlists [WIP]

    Hello everyone, I have been trying to get these lists completed for a while now.  I had originally posted here in the collection section before the Playlist function was available.  But didn't have everything completed as far as accurate metadata and the games all being in the Games Database.  I have made 3 playlists for Metal Slug as some may not want more than the basic game list for what is out there.  
    The first playlist is called:
    Metal Slug Basic
    The second is called:
    Metal Slug Complete
    The third is called:
    Metal Slug Complete +
    I also have been trying to in my spare time (which I don't have a lot of) come up with a worthy playlist image and playlist theme for Metal Slug.  If someone else wanted to, that would be OK and great.
    The Metal Slug Complete + is a work in progress at the moment and will have updates, especially when I am able to add games to the Games DB that currently do not have a approved platform.

  2. SHMUPS

    1296 SHMUPS!  Split playlists for arcade and consoles.
     
    Download the .xml files and place them in your LaunchBox\Data\Playlists directory.
    Here's how many games are in each playlist:
    SHMUPS (Arcade):           501*
    SHMUPS (Dreamcast)        24
    SHMUPS (Game Gear) :       9
    SHMUPS (GB/GBC) :           42
    SHMUPS (GBA):                   21
    SHMUPS (Genesis) :           70 (including Sega CD and 32x games)
    SHMUPS (MSX):                144**
    SHMUPS (Naomi):              18
    SHMUPS (NES):                 132 (including Famicom and Famicom Disk games)
    SHMUPS (PS1):                    69
    SHMUPS (PS2):                    34
    SHMUPS (PSP):                    24
    SHMUPS (Saturn)                54
    SHMUPS (SMS):                   20
    SHMUPS (SNES):                 39 
    SHMUPS (Turbo Grafx):     99 (including Turbo CD/PC Engine/PC Engine CD/SuperGrafx games)
    SHMUPS (All-in-one)      1296
    *2 games in the Arcade list, 'Pilot Kids' and 'Zero Gunner', will require a Sega Model 2 emulator for them to work.  These two games are made by Psikyo...quality SHMUPS.
    **The MSX list still needs a bit of work, there are a few 3D/rail shooters that need to be edited out.  A future update will probably have less games in the list.
    What these playlists have:
    2D and 2.5D horizontal and vertical SHMUPS
    Some classic fixed screen SHMUPS (Space Invaders, Galaga, Asteroids, etc.)
    mostly No Clones  (These lists were handpicked. Lots of 'Same game, different name' games were filtered out)
    No Run 'N Gun style games (Contra, Metal Slug, Turrican, etc.), but some hybrid games did make it on here.
    No 3D Shooters (Afterburner, Galaxy Force II, Space Harrier, etc.)

  3. Beat 'Em Ups

    266 Beat 'Em Ups (Split playlists for MAME and Consoles)
     
    The .xml files:
    Beat Em Ups (Arcade):         133 Games for MAME
    Beat Em Ups (NES):                 28 Games (17 NES + 2 Famicom)
    Beat Em Ups (SNES):               60 Games (37 SNES + 18 Super Famicom)
    Beat Em Ups (Genesis):          45 Games (40 Genesis/Megadrive + 5 Sega CD)
    Beat Em Ups (Turbo  Grafx): 22 Games
    Download the .xml files and place them in your LaunchBox\Data\Playlists directory.
     
    Issues with Metadata and Launchbox IDs:
    'Avengers' (Arcade) is a vertical scrolling beat 'em up made by Capcom with no Launchbox ID.  Launchbox will default the Metadata and Media to 'Avengers In Galactic Storm'.  That is the wrong game.  The Mame rom filename is 'Avengers'.  Do not attach any Metadata,  title it exactly as 'Avengers' in the Edit Game window in Launchbox, and Emumovies should give you the proper media (although you may have to surf around to get a clear logo).
    There's an arcade prototype game called 'Judge Dredd' made by Midway. It is a beat 'em up and has no launchbox ID.  This is confusing because there is a light gun game called 'Judge Dredd' made by Acclaim. The Mame rom file is 'jdreddp'.  Title it as 'jdreddp' in Launchbox, and Emumovies will give you the media for it. Hit ok and edit it again if you want to change the title without losing the media.  Just don't title it as 'Judge Dredd' or it will get mixed up with the other game.  I named it 'Judge Dredd Prototype'.
    For the SNES list I added the Rushing Beat Series: 'Rushing Beat', 'Rushing Beat Ran: Fukusei Toshi', and 'Rushing Beat Shura'.  These are the Japanese but superior versions of Rival Turf, Brawl Brothers and The Peace Keepers, respectively.  No metadata for the Japanese versions and I'm still looking for some of the media.
    'UFO Kamen Yakisoban' for the Super Famicom also has no launchbox ID, but there is media for it on Emumovies as long as it is titled exactly like I have it here.

    ............
    It took about a week and a lot of research to put these lists together and I tried very hard to get every Beat 'Em Up for each platform.  But,  I was pretty strict about what made it on the lists.  There aren't any one-on-one 'Fighters' in these lists, that's a whole other category.  I also kept away from 'Hack n Slash' games which can be categorized as Action/Platformers.
    Please let me know if there are any games that should be on these lists.  I'm sure I missed a few.

  4. Run N Gun

    317 Run N Gun style games (Split playlists for Arcade and consoles)
     
    The xml files:
    Run N Gun (Arcade):       121 Games*
    Run N Gun (Genesis):       54 Games
    Run N Gun (NES):              66 Games 
    Run N Gun (SNES)             53 Games 
    Run N Gun (Turbo Grafx) 23 Games 
    *2 Games in the Arcade list, 'Dolphin Blue' and 'Metal Slug 6', require a Sammy Atomiswave emulator.  Try Demul.
     
    Download the .xml files and place them in your LaunchBox\Data\Playlists directory.
     
    Some thoughts about these lists:
    The Run N Gun category can have a few grey areas and can have a few matters of opinion.   Some lists I have seen are strictly 'Guns' only.  But I added a few that have other kinds of projectiles.  Some of the games on here are more 'Platformer' than they are 'Run N Gun'.  I was a bit skeptical about adding 'Mega Man' in these lists, and I'm not sure if they are proper Run N Gun games.  But he runs and he shoots, so I think that qualifies.  Also, a few games on here are hybrid games that are also on the SHMUPS lists.  Check out 'Rendering Ranger R2' for SNES/Super Famicom and 'Crossfire' for Genesis, for example.
     
    Have fun,

  6. Top ColecoVision Games

    The definitive top ColecoVision games. Included is three files so you can use whichever works for you: Top 3, 5, and 7. I'd recommend the top 5.
     
    I made this list the same way that I made the Top Nes list, but I'm not sure that this was the best method. There weren't as many or as big lists online for the ColecoVision as the Nes so it's mostly based on how many lists each game is in rather than how a game compares to another when they're on the same list. This is also why there are less games on this list, there's only a consensus on five or so games that they deserve being in a top games list (as opposed to the 40 or so games on the NES that I was able to be stricter and cut it down)
     
    There wasn't really enough data to rank the games just put them into tiers so here are the tiers:
     
    Tier 1: Donkey Kong Junior, Pepper II, Venture
    Tier 2: Zaxxon, BurgerTime
    Tier 3: Jumpman Junior, Donkey Kong

  9. A Lightgun Games Playlist

    A good start for your lightgun games collection. I will update this as I add more lightgun games to my collection.
    For help getting 2 player lightgun games going in Demul and Model 2, visit http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,149714.0.html. This is the forum for DemulShooter, a third party utility that enables 2 player lightgun support for some of the games in this list.
    For Mame 2 player lighgun help, particularly with the frustrating issue of your lightgun controller IDs constantly changing with each reboot, see this very helpful video - https://youtu.be/YmjfwLuZ_X0
