About This File

A plugin to help restore missing media files when updating to LaunchBox 13.14+. 


LaunchBox versions 13.14 and higher use a stricter naming convention for media files than previous versions. As a result you might find that you have many missing media files after updating. If you are in that situation, you can do the following:

  1. First make a backup copy of your Images and Videos folders just to be safe.
  2. Temporarily revert to LaunchBox version 13.12 by closing LaunchBox/BigBox and running LaunchBox/Updates/LaunchBox-13.12-Setup.exe
  3. Start LaunchBox and open the plugin (Tools->"Fixup Fuzzy Media Names" to run it for all games in a platform or if you want to run it for an individual game then right-click the game and select "Fixup Fuzzy Media Names").
  4. Follow the on-screen instructions to start the fixup process (you can choose between rom name format or game title format).
  5. Revert back to LaunchBox version 13.14 (or higher) by closing LaunchBox/BigBox and running LaunchBox/Updates/LaunchBox-13.14-Setup.exe
  6. LaunchBox versions 13.14 and higher should now recognize the media. The list of media files that had to be renamed can be found in LaunchBox/Logs/FuzzyNamingFixupLog.txt


Can't promise this will fix every case but it should fix most cases of missing media caused by the 13.14 update.



  • Copy FuzzyWuzzyNamingFixup.dll to your LaunchBox/Plugins folder.

Absolutely brilliant plugin to bring your image and video filenames up-to date with the new stricter title matching as of 13.14

Just an example of what it did in my PS2 collection.

1311 Image's missing after the update,  after following the instructions and using this plugin only 3!! (and they are duplicates and have nothing to do with this plugin)

This has saved so much time and I would recommend everyone to run this and set it to rename as the title, that way you won't ever have to edit the filenames again yourself as it'll match the LB database.  I can't thank you enough 👍
