    This is a side project I've been working on for the last couple days, inspired by people like Biffman 101 of The Collection Chamber. The idea is to setup some older DOS/3.1/95+ games, create some artwork for them, and package them up in a nice, modern installer package with desktop and/or start menu shortcuts just like any modern PC game (which, of course, can be imported directly into LB as well). Everything will be configured beforehand so you just run the installer and you're good to go! My policy for these will be that I'll only be doing games that aren't available on digital storefronts like Steam and GOG - those options are already there for you if you want to play those games - these are for games where no such option is available and your only choice is to buy it off a guy on ebay (assuming you have a disc drive) or download an iso (either of which also assumes you know your way around DOSBox, in the case of DOS games). I've done a few so far, but I've got a big list of stuff that I want to cover. Zomb's Lair (website) Full list of currently completed games This post is getting a little unwieldy, so new additions will be noted in this thread with links to the relevant page on zombs-lair.com but won't be listed below. Below are the first 20 packages that were completed. Dreamweb Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 3rd person Developer: Creative Reality Year: 1994 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: Dreamweb Special Notes: pdfs of the "Diary of a Madman" and the manual are included - both are required in order to be able to operate the main character's network terminal in his apartment - page 12 in the manual, and the last page of the diary, specifically. Editorial Comments: The Terminator Double Pack (Future Shock and Skynet) Genre: FPS Developer: Bethesda Softworks Year: 1995 (Future Shock) / 1996 (Skynet) Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: The Terminator: Future Shock / The Terminator: Skynet Special Notes: Includes both Future Shock and Skynet, and an optional graphics patcher for Skynet to enhance the visuals if you so choose (the standard visuals are present by default). Editorial comments: Rama Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 1st person Developer: Sierra On-Line Year: 1996 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: Rama Special Notes: Due to size constraints for the installer package, this one requires you to manually move some files into the installed directory - place the contents of Rama Discs.zip in the "Disc Images" folder and you'll be all set. Also note that the game is spread across 3 discs - when prompted to change discs, press Ctrl+F4 to change from disc 1 to 2, 2 to 3, and 3 to 1. Editorial comments: The Journeyman Project: Turbo! Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 1st person Developer: Presto Studios Year: 1993 Platform: Windows 3.1 Emulator: DOSBox Daum Wikipedia: The Journeyman Project Special Notes: Because this is running an instance of Windows 3.1 within DOSBox, you'll need to press Ctrl+F9 to quit - Esc will just exit back to the 3.1 desktop. Also note that the TSA door code near the beginning of the game is 6894895. Editorial comments: Blade Runner Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 3rd Person Developer: Westwood Studios Year: 1997 Platform: Windows Emulator: None Wikipedia: Blade Runner Special Notes: Okay, so this one has a potential snag - you need to have some type of disc drive visible when the game starts otherwise it will crash. It doesn't matter whether that drive is physical or virtual, mounted or not, but it needs to be able to see it. If you have DT or VCD you can have virtual drives visible at all times, even unmounted, and it'll work. If you don't have any dedicated virtual drive software or a physical disc drive and you're on Windows 10, you can mount a disc image - any disc image - and a drive will then be visible which will allow Blade Runner to work. I'm investigating whether or not it's possible to make the built-in virtual drive visible at all times, even while unmounted, in Windows 10. Currently, however, you need to have some type of disc drive visible in order for the game to work. Old games are really stupid about this kind of thing some times... Editorial comments: Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 Genre: Action Adventure / 3rd Person Developer: Ritual Entertainment Year: 2000 Platform: Windows Emulator: None Wikipedia: Heavy Metal: F.A.K.K. 2 Special Notes: The game has been patched to run in 1920x1080 resolution. If you wish to change to a different resolution, edit the "config.cfg" file in the "fakk" subdirectory and change the "seta r_customwidth" and "seta r_customheight" values. Editorial comments: Dark Seed Collection (Dark Seed and Dark Seed II) Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 3rd Person Developer: Cyberdreams Year: 1992 / 1995 Platform: DOS / Windows 3.1 Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 / DOSBox Daum Wikipedia: Dark Seed / Dark Seed II Special notes: Press Ctrl+F9 to quit Dark Seed II - quitting the game normally will just exit back to the 3.1 desktop. Editorial comments: Drowned God Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 1st person Developer: Epic Multimedia Group Year: 1996 Platform: Windows Emulator: None Wikipedia: Drowned God Special notes: None Editorial comments: Gunman Chronicles Genre: FPS Developer: Rewolf Software Year: 2000 Platform: Windows Emulator: None Wikipedia: Gunman Chronicles Special Notes: The intro cutscene may have some artifacts at the very beginning but it should go away after a couple seconds. Editorial comments: Logical Journey of the Zoombinis Genre: Puzzle / Logic Developer: Brøderbund Year: 1996 Platform: Windows 3.1 Emulator: DOSBox Daum Wikipedia: Logical Journey of the Zoombinis Special Notes: press Ctrl+F9 to exit the game - quitting normally will just exit back to the 3.1 desktop. Keyboard shortcuts in-game for save and load are Ctrl+S and Ctrl+L respectively. Editorial comments: Companions of Xanth Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 1st person Developer: Legend Entertainment Year: 1993 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: Companions of Xanth Special notes: Companions of Xanth makes good use of MT-32 audio, so if you have Munt installed and want to use it, edit the dosbox.conf by going all the way to the bottom, and in the autoexec section, change "xanth" to "install", then start DOSBox.exe and set the music to MT-32 audio. Then change "install" back to "xanth". Also, don't forget to set the "midiconfig=" value in the .conf to whatever it should be for MT-32 on your system - you can check your midi device numbers by opening a standalone DOSBox prompt and typing "mixer /listmidi". Most people don't use things like Munt or VirtualMidiSynth, so I have to create these packages with that in mind - they use Sound Blaster by default. Editorial comments: Perihelion: The Prophecy Genre: RPG Developer: Morbid Visions Year: 1993 Platform: Amiga Emulator: FS-UAE Wikipedia: Perihelion: The Prophecy Special notes: This is the WHDLoad version so no disk swapping is required! Just start the game and go - play, save, load, etc. press F10 when you want to quit the game. Save games are not stored permanently for WHDLoad games if FS-UAE's menu (F12) is used to exit the game. Save states are enabled, but your mileage may vary - standard in-game saves are more reliable. Editorial comments: Commander Blood Genre: Adventure Developer: Cryo Interactive Year: 1994 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: Commander Blood Special notes: none Editorial comments: Alien Legacy Genre: Strategy / Management Developer: Ybarra Productions Year: 1994 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: Alien Legacy Special notes: none Editorial comments: 3D Ultra Minigolf Deluxe Genre: Sports / Minigolf Developer: Dynamix Year: 1998 Platform: Windows Emulator: None Wikipedia: None Special notes: 3D Ultra Minigolf Deluxe is picky about folder names in its path not being too long - if they're too long all the graphics in the game will be black making it unplayable. "3D Ultra Minigolf Deluxe", for example, is too long of a folder name, which is why the default path used has it named "Minigolf Deluxe". If you start the game and everything's black, it's because one of the folders in the path to the game has too many characters. Editorial comments: Elvira Collection Genre: RPG / Adventure Developer: Horrorsoft Year: 1990 / 1992 Platform: Amiga Emulator: FS-UAE Wikipedia: Elvira / Elvira II Special notes: This is the WHDLoad version so no disk swapping is required! Just start the game and go - play, save, load, etc. press F10 when you want to quit the game. Save games are not stored permanently for WHDLoad games if FS-UAE's menu (F12) is used to exit the game. Save states are enabled, but your mileage may vary - standard in-game saves are more reliable. Editorial comments: The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes Collection Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 3rd person Developer: Mythos Software Year: 1992 / 1996 Platform: DOS Emulator: ScummVM Wikipedia: The Lost Files of Sherlock Holmes Special notes: The soundfont FluidR3 is also included to greatly enhance the music. Osprey's music looping patch has been applied to Serrated Scalpel (so that music repeats once the song ends). Editorial comments: Spaceship Warlock Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 1st Person Developer: Mike Saenz, Joe Sparks Year: 1991 Platform: Windows 3.1 Emulator: DOSBox Daum Wikipedia: Spaceship Warlock Special notes: Press Ctrl+F9 to quit the game - Esc will just exit back to the 3.1 desktop. Click near the top of the screen to access the file menu for saving/loading games. You'll need to then click the Drives drop down and select the 😄 drive (it defaults to D:, which is the virtual disc drive), before saving. The 😄 drive it shows isn't your actual 😄 drive, it's [wherever you installed the game]\Spaceship Warlock\HDD. Also keep in mind that the save names can't be over 8 characters. Editorial comments: Ripper Genre: Point-And-Click Adventure / 1st Person Developer: Take-Two Interactive Year: 1996 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox Wikipedia: Ripper Special notes: Ripper spans six CDs, but I've setup the configuration and ini files to have access to all six at once - what this means is that the game will still prompt you to change discs on occasion, but all you need to do when this happens is press "continue" and you'll be able to continue on, no muss, no fuss! Editorial comments: Chasm: The Rift Genre: FPS Developer: Action Forms Year: 1997 Platform: DOS Emulator: DOSBox 0.74 Wikipedia: Chasm: The Rift Special notes: Includes the addon levels and level editor. The game has been patched to run at a high framerate at 640x400 resolution (double the base resolution). Editorial comments: More to come!

    This is a modern looking theme. It has 2 platform views and 4 game views. One of the game views is very simalair to the Xbox One Interface. There's lots of art included in this theme. I've also created and included some custom playlist banners. If anyone wants to create and share any custom art for this theme that would be awesome. I intend to add more views. Feel free to offer suggestions. To install -- just extract the Alyssa folder into your Launchbox/themes folder. Alyssa_-_A_Modern_Theme.mp4

    Hey guys, sorry for the delay. I've been out of the state, but I'm on my way home now. Prior to leaving town, I FINALLY figured out a resilient method of finding the correct vtable offsets that my plug-in uses (when it interfaces with the Steam client dll) such that Steam updates will no longer break compatibility with my plug-in. Unfortunately I didn't have enough time to post the update before I left, but thankfully this means I already have a working version of the plug-in to post that will fix the problem. I will try to post it first thing tomorrow when I get home. This should be the last time anyone has to worry about a Steam update breaking compatibility with my plug-in (I can nearly guarantee it.) I appreciate y'all being patient!

    I noticed this as well. I sent him a message on Steam. Just waiting for his reply. I'm sure he's busy.

    Hey there, I it doesn't work anymore. Seems like the changes from the Beta have now been implemented into the stable version of Steam. =(

    To be honest im not sure, but having everything checked would make sense to me to download everything.

    Hi thanks for this, it's exactly what I need to use my Steam controller with games from GOG and elsewhere directly through LB! However for the life of me I cannot get it to work. Always crashes when I go to launch a game. On launching a game Steam instantly closes and LB hangs until I kill the process. Am I missing a trick or have Valve borked it with an update do you know?

    No worries! Good luck and enjoy the new pause feature😁

    Good advice, but for the record, PAUSE seems to work fine in Retroarch, although as you said, it may not work well with all cores...I shall see...
  13. 1 point
    Not really sure, but programs like retroarch and mame use various keyboard shortcuts within their respective programs, so there could always be conflicts with those two. For example, by default "p" also is a pause feature within retroarch. That's why I use "insert" as a shortcut since it's never used by any emulators, except maybe the computer ones (Commodore 64, Amstrad, etc.).

    Followup: Thank you for the advice. This ended up working pretty well. I can now successfully launch arcade games using different emulators. I have done this so many times I must of forgot to either point a "master batch selection" to a new emulator or re-scan the whole damn archive. Thanks a bunch.

    I dont know how to double quote your comments but on the page before you said... "I believe the best idea currently is to just take a screenshot of the screen before taking the save state". Disable this feature per platform when you come to it. EDIT: please.

    How Long To Beat - Game Length Plugin View File About Plugin that scrapes information from HowLongToBeat.com and adds custom fields with game lengths information. I made this plugin to add length information for certain games, mostly rpgs. This adds 3 custom fields for Main Story, Main + Extra and Completionist length. You can configure which ones you want to add by editing the file HLTBPlugin.xml. Because there's no oficial API from HLTB, I had to parse the HTML, which means that as soon as they change something on the HTML this plugin probably will stop working... Install Extract files (dll + xml) to : Launchbox/Plugins/HLTBPlugin. Config (HLTBPlugin.xml) MainStoryLength: Enable/disable main story length update. Default: true. MainExtraLength: Enable/disable main story + extra length update. Default: true. CompletionistLength: Enable/disable completionist length update. Default: true. MainStoryFieldName: Change main story length custom field name. Default: Main Story Length MainExtraFieldName: Change main story + extra length custom field name. Default: Main + Extra Length CompletionistFieldName: Change completionist length custom field name. Default: Completionist Length Note: If you change the fields names it will not update the games that already have information, so you will end up with duplicated fields with different names and you will have to manually delete them (edit game -> custom fields tab). So config the first time and stick with that. Usage Access the option by right-click a game (only one game, no massive update yet). A window will popup with all the games found and you can choose which one correspond to your game. If there's no results you can manually change the search words (e.g. Metal Gear Ac!d will get no results but you can then change the search to Metal Gear Acid). You can use the "Arrange By" option to order the games by length. Lengths are shown with leading zeroes because is the only way to properly order the games since custom fields are strings and not integers. Tested on version 8.9. I think you need a premium license because custom fields are not supported in free license (not sure). I have no relation with HowLongToBeat.com, if you like their work please go and support them.

    The Steam Beta did indeed break compatibility with the plugin because of changes to some vtable offsets in the steam client DLL. I will try to upload an update shortly that fixes this issue.

    I think the ease of creation is what a nice little themeing program could bring. I know I really enjoyed being able to spend like 15 quick minutes to make a simple theme in hypertheme for a hack or dos game nobody had done yet. Or for platform themes nobody made, or I didn't like their version. Drag n drop, nice little effects, I think it's the one and only thing I miss from back then. As far as videos being better for ease of use, definitely. This is why themebox should have the export option so you can choose which video format you want to render in. Having these vids are cool! But you still have to rely on another fe's theme program to even have the ability to capture them. LB just needs its own now.
