    Just wanted to share a video of a theme I've been working on. It started with the idea of seeing if I could get BigBox to run a theme with big, vertical banners as the main showcase. It has turned into a fun project, where I've been able to turn it into a functional theme that I'm currently using as my main. The theme itself uses custom made vertical banners for both platforms and games, which means a lot of work for me to populate banners for every game in my library. Here's the video showcasing some of it in action.

    Wow, another very nice looking theme! I'm not sure if it's just me, but it would probably look better without the controllers in the middle, to give it a little more clean/polished look

    I have 6000 C64 games and after scraping for game logos from the database and Emumovies I only acquired around 3000. So, as in my other 'unofficial' logo packs here are the missing ones created by myself. This is a big job so I'll release them in alphabetical order as I make them. (S) 511 logos. (Phew!)

    MAME 0.216 NO NAG With the end of November in sight, it’s time to check out MAME 0.216! We’ve addressed the reported issues with last month’s bgfx update, and made a whole lot of little improvements to MAME’s internal user interface. In particular, setting up controls should be easier, and several issues affecting macOS users with non-English number format settings have been fixed. Some of the issues caused bad settings to be written to INI files. If you still don’t see the filter list panel on the system selection menu, try removing the ui.ini file. This month, we’re able to present two unreleased 1970s prototypes from Italian developer Model Racing: their internal code names are Cane and Orbite. With the assistance of former Model Racing employees, the source code was extracted from the original disks. These games are incomplete, but they provide a unique look into early CPU-based arcade development. Game & Watch titles continue to be emulated, with the addition of Mario The Juggler, and the panorama screen Mickey Mouse and Donkey Kong Circus games in this release. This release brings GameKing emulation to MAME. The system-on-a-chip used in this low-cost, low-resolution hand-held console from the early 2000s has been identified and emulated. Games for the colour-screen GameKing III are also playable. Acorn BBC Micro emulation has been re-worked to support internal expansion boards, and a number of additional peripherals are now available. ZX Spectrum emulation has been enhanced with better open bus read behaviour and support for two Miles Gordon Technology peripherals.

    Sega Genesis / Megadrive Mini is a 2019 piece of SEGA hardware, with 42 games included. This is the platform video for your Launchbox. The video is a shortend version of the Japanese commercial, so the console in the video is called Megadrive, and not Genesis. Link to clear-logo: How to: Add the following 42 games to a new playlist (and mark it as included on your platform-list, if you want it to appear as a console). NOTICE: Two of the games are not common USA/EURO releases. Darius and Tetris needs a bit of work. I added Darius from Arcade to my playlist. Then I added the Japanese Mega Drive release of Tetris to the playlist. Then I changed the front box artwork manually to the new boxes from Sega's website (http://genesismini.sega.com/ ). The two new covers are included here, at the bottom. Sonic the Hedgehog Ecco the Dolphin Castlevania: Bloodlines Space Harrier 2 Shining Force Dr. Robotnik’s Mean Bean Machine ToeJam & Earl Comix Zone Altered Beast Gunstar Heroes Castle of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse World of Illusion Starring Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck Thunder Force 3 Super Fantasy Zone Shinobi 3 Streets of Rage 2 Earthworm Jim Sonic the Hedgehog 2 Contra: Hard Corps Landstalker Mega Man: The Wily Wars Street Fighter 2: Special Champion Edition Ghouls ’n Ghosts Alex Kidd in the Enchanted Castle Beyond Oasis Golden Axe Phantasy Star 4: The End of the Millennium Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball Vectorman Wonder Boy in Monster World Tetris Darius Road Rash 2 Strider Virtua Fighter 2 Alisia Dragoon Kid Chameleon Monster World 4 Eternal Champions Columns Dynamite Headdy Light Crusader Extra coverart: Banner:

    Ah, didn't realize that. Works perfectly. Thanks for the follow up!

    We will need more details than that, like which emulator for a start. Also what are you using a keyboard or a controller, and have you changed any key bindings in the emulator.

    One of my favorite unexpected finds/adds -- thanks for making & sharing this! I don't have a 5.1 setup, but instead have it automatically play on my networked google homes around the house when I fire up Bigbox. I still hear a little of the rotating effect, and the wide dispersion/echoing from the speakers in other rooms really makes it sound realistic!

    I'll begin work on the next version of win3xo after I release v4 of eXoDOS. At this time I do not know how long it will take to import win3x0 into launchbox and add new games to it. It depends on how many new games I find I suppose. I'm running the latest version of dosbox here and I do not have the problem. I don't know if it is a setting with your particular version or if it is a problem with some of the 3.11 files.

    Beta 2 is out now to attempt to fix an issue with the updated game exit AutoHotkey script. It's only been reported by one user so far, but it's a major issue for @MazJohn [Mr Arcade]. The issue is detailed in this thread: Hopefully this beta fixes it and we can go forward with the 9.9 release.

    Gonna bug you again because damn you've been helpful. I reimported everything as expected here, is there a way to set which version is the "default" when launched? So people can just click "TMNT" and get the 2 player version? Edit - Answered my own question looking at your screenshot. Me dumb.

    There is not. It sounds like this product isn't for you and you are looking for something else. Good luck in that endeavor. The best you can do is setup multiple instances of LB and only load one system into each one.

    Perfection, this worked. V wasn't mapped initially but I changed it and now it does exactly what I want. Again, thanks a ton.

    Just thought I would give people a little tutorial here on how to use "mklink" to create a Symbolic Link for the Launchbox Cache. Some people say it improves performance (I certainly noticed it) and some say they don't notice much of a difference, I guess it depends on your set up. This method worked for me very well when I moved the Cache to my SSD, I found that I could now use images set to there highest quality without any impact on performance and the images look great on a 4k TV. So here is what worked for me: 1. First download and install LINK SHELL EXTENSION found here http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/linkshellextension.html (be sure to install the dependency's first)You should now have the option when you right click on a file to "Pick Link Source". 2. On your SSD where you want your CACHE to be located create a folder called "CACHE" (I find that creating a Folder named something like "Launchbox Cache" and then placing the new Cache folder inside it works best). 3. Go to your Launchbox folder and find the original CACHE folder in the IMAGES folder and copy everything in the CACHE folder to your new CACHE folder on your SSD. (this may take a while, alternatively you could just delete everything in the original cache folder if you wish but you will have to repopulate it later after the folder is linked, not a big deal really I just leave launchbox in "attract mode" so the Cache gets filled up). 4. Once you have copied everything (or deleted everything) from the original CACHE folder also delete the actual ORIGINAL CACHE folder itself as well (this part is important). 5. now go to your SSD and right click your new CACHE folder (or the folder it's in) you created earlier and select "Pick Link Source" 6. now go to your IMAGES folder in launchbox right click it and select "Drop as Junction" This will automatically create a new CACHE folder (where you deleted the original) INSIDE the IMAGES folder with a little chain icon attached to it indicating that it is now linked to your SSD CACHE folder! That's it simple but took me a while to get my head around so I just thought I would post this. A way to test if this is working correctly is to do the same with your platform videos folder, if after following the instructions above your videos display properly, everything is working fine! or of course you could just watch the space left on your SSD as the cache fills up.

    Really like the Platform view, with the game view could the controller only display on the selected game or is it part of the banner itself?

    Oh, very nice! Those SMS cases make me nostalgic. Sega had one over on Nintendo with those hard cases. They're slick and last forever. Unlike Nintendo using flimsy cardboard boxes. Especially the SNES boxes which are extra thin cardboard. But yeah, the SMS had a little more power than the NES. One great example for comparison is the game Rampage.

    I wanted to update everyone here and let everybody know that the themes uploader now supports pause themes: https://www.launchbox-app.com/themes I also added a pause theme section here on the forums. Pause themes are just as easy to work on as the startup themes are; I'd love to see some themes if you guys are up for it. Thank you guys as always. 🙏

    Thanks Neil !! This application takes a back seat to my day job, so I spend the week casually making notes in preparation for code crunch on Friday nights and Saturdays. I am really happy with how things are shaping up though and to be honest I cant wait to complete it so that I can focus on building a new theme and also seeing what others come up with 🙂

    Try turning off the startup screens in BigBox and see if that solves your issue, it could be running into issues with the emulator being used for those systems.
