  1. Hi everyone, 12.2 Beta 1 is now out with the following changes: New Feature: RetroArch can now be automatically downloaded and installed via the ROM import processes (if it's not installed already); this makes it super easy to get up and playing just by running the ROM import wizard and doing literally nothing else New Feature: RetroArch management options are now available under Tools > Manage > RetroArch; there are options to automatically update, update cores, and install or reinstall Improvement: The Arrange By menu can now be used in ascending or descending order Improvement: The menus in LaunchBox have been organized for easier navigation Fixed: Correcting a rare error when saving an emulator without a command line (introduced in 12.0) Fixed: In Big Box, the Launch With option in Game Details no longer shows for games that don't use an emulator Fixed: Incorrect download count when processing multiple EmuMovie queues Fixed: FlowVideo control was not always updating the HasVideo binding correctly Fixed: Add/Edit Emulator will now once again let you add two different cores for the same platform when editing RetroArch Thanks for helping beta test LaunchBox.

  3. Since we can only comment on what is on the list and not suggest better options. I would like to say that if the "Suggested games/reccomended games" feature is implemented, I will stop using launchbox if it cannot be turned off. There is nothing I hate more than having shit "suggested" to me, I can find my own groceries/games/magazines/movies/music/books whatever, I don't need to be suggested/shown ads/be told what to watch/play/do next. Sorry if I sound angry, but as someone suffering from concentration problems I have a natural hatred for every pop-up/blinking avatar/slider/useless extra bit of text/images that I am currently not interested in.

  6. I don't have a mirror currently. The Eye should be back before too long. Work continues on the update. The next 100 games have been added, tested, and configured. 747 Flight Simulator ACE (Air Combat Emulator) [Not in the DB] Amulet, The Ballyhoo Battle for Midway Battle of Britain Bombo Captain Kidd Codename-Mat II Colossus Chess 4 Comet Game, The Cops 'N' Robbers Crazy Comets Crusade in Europe Death Wake Decision in the Desert Deus Ex Machina Dicky's Diamonds Dynamite Dan FA Cup Football Faerie Falklands 82 Field of Fire Flight Path 737 Force, The Geoff Capes' Strongman Challenge Germany 1985 Gyroscope HardBall! Ice Station Zero Isle of the Cursed Prophet Iwo Jima Knights of the Desert Kong (Sputnik World) [Not in the DB] Lady Pac Lord of the Rings [DB note: this is not Fellowship of the Ring, this is a separate game - Fellowship of the Ring is this game and Lord of the Rings is this game but searching for this one just pulls Fellowship of the Ring] Lost Realms of Murkasada Lost Tomb Lucifer's Realm Magician's Ball, The Max Headroom Metabolis Mission Asteroid Mr. Mephisto Mugsy's Revenge Murdlok [Not in the DB] Ninja Carnage Nonterraqueous Norway 1985 Odyssey, The One Bite Too Deep Perry Mason - The Case of the Mandarin Murder Phantom of the Asteroid Ping Pong Popeye (Piranha) Quann Tulla Quest for the Holy Grail Radar Rat Race Rats, The Raven, The Revs RMS Titanic Scalextric Schizofrenia Seas of Blood Secret Diary of Adrian Mole, The Skool Daze Snow Queen, The Solo Flight - Second Edition Souls of Darkon Space Pilot II Speed Duel Speed King Spellbound (MAD) Spellbreaker Spitfire Ace Spy's Demise Starion Steve Davis Snooker Super Bowl XX Suspect Terrormolinos Tigers in the Snow Topper the Copper Tour de France Trollbound [Not in the DB] Ulysses and the Golden Fleece Vagan Attack Who Dares Wins II Wild West William Wobbler Willow Pattern Wishbringer Wizard and the Princess, The Wizard's Lair World Cup II World Cup Soccer Yabba Dabba Doo Zyto Zzzz All 200 of the current new games have been added to LB, 3D boxes created, and added to playlists in some cases. I parsed through all of the (4000+) new files in Ultimate Tape Archive V3.0 and pulled out, edited, and reformatted hundreds of new and upgraded manuals and covers. The total manual count is currently 1275 / 47.2% of the collection. I discovered a neat program called Mpxplay which has now been incorporated into the magazines and individual reviews - it's an mp3 player that runs fully in CMD (I've used mpg123 for this previously but this one is nicer), has playlist support, crossfades, and even has a neat frequency visualizer in the CMD window. I've got it setup with a playlist of 50 SID tracks which will randomize each time it's started. I have it setup with a script so that you can display and hide the player as well as skip and pause tracks via the numpad while reading the magazines. It can be disabled outright if so desired through the configurator but I thought this was a pretty neat touch. It should be noted that this only works for the local magazines. I've also created an updated game launcher bat which allows them to be generic/universal which helps simplify and streamline things going forward. I've gone back and replaced some of the existing ones but they won't all be replaced by the time of release - this doesn't actually hurt anything in any practical sense, it's just a backend thing. Thanks to Boohyaka of the eXo project for helping me work through how to create this! Someone (who wished to remain anonymous) was kind enough to help me by creating a plugin which allows me to add the Zzap review additional apps in LB en masse which is going to save me a boatload of time so that's a huge relief. All of the review files are setup for all the remaining titles that will be added in this update, but not all of them are in yet as only 200 of the planned 500 games for this update are setup. Currently there are 1059 Zzap reviews hooked up but that total will be around 1300 once the rest of the games are added. Anyway, that's it for now! More to come.

  7. Now there is a view with the separate logo. Good idea. It fits in this view.

  10. I'm going to take a stab at making a re-refried unified theme. It's one of my more favorite themes, but there's still certain elements I really want to see improvement on. I will be re-using the existing theme video and graphic assets, just updating layouts as I want. There will be nothing fancy about this theme either. It will probably look 90% like refried too. I just want to update some of the views with a better layout of game information and play styles. Rob

  11. This isn't going to be for everyone. Attached is a collection of box - front images I'm using for my Visual Pinball set. These are backglass images collected from various sources, a number of them touched up to look better. I have resized all images to a 1280x1024 format. It may be sacrilege for some but I find it appealing and most backglasses don't suffer from over-stretching in my opinion. Anyway, since a good amount of editing and google searching went into collecting these images, I thought I would post them here in hopes that someone else might find them useful. There are 382 tables represented. I use this in a strictly desktop environment.

  12. Sega SG-1000 3D Boxes View File Sega SG-1000 needed some box art love, so I remastered boxes from retail scans. All the officially released games are included, even Terebi Oekaki which was more of an accessory for the SG-1000 than a game. Also, some alternate boxes are available for those that had them. Enjoy! Uploading a 2D box set as well. Submitter WallyWonka Submitted 10/18/2021 Category Game Box Art

  24. @FoxyMonty What are you using to decrypt your ISO? ps3dec or 3k3y or something else? Why not decrypt them and be done instead of having to decrypt every time you want to play and have that extra copy stored as well, just curious. Looks like LaunchBox supports running powershell now so I have updated my script for launching ISO, will post tomorrow or this weekend.

  27. Hello everyone, I'm the OP of the "Pin-Locked Games" suggestion: https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/5082/pin-code-option-to-unlock-certain Thank you so much for voting for this suggestion and all the other great suggestions from the other members of this nice and great community. It's really humbling to see my suggestion make it on the 2021 new features list. I'm really happy about this and I sincerely thank everyone to make this happen. As a final request to the awesome developers, please make the mechanism as "Lock" NOT only "hide" or at least an option for "Lock". I mean it will be great if we can see the game tile with everything related to it like the background and video and notes... etc.... but when we click on "Play" (when on BigBox mode) it will ask us for the pin code to unlock this game to be able to play it. And it should do that every time we select "Play" in the same game section. I think this is the best option for many of us. So please make it at least an option instead of hiding only. Many thanks again for everyone and best regards to all.

  29. Thanks for the update @RedSnake! It runs much quicker and smoother on my setup now, even with a vast array of media ticked on background priorities including box art! ๐Ÿ˜œ A request if you don't mind... If one day you could add the fabled Sega CD 32x to your theme I would be absolutely stoked! As only 6 games benefitted from using both addons together it's probably not at the top of your list, but some of us have it set as a separate platform in our collections. Totally respect if it's not worth the work for the few of us that may benefit! But come on - you know you want to make a little Night Trap model or two ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿ‘! Looking forward to future updates and appreciate all your hard work.

  30. 1. Higher resolution videos 2. There is a user-built Windows app called Sync which is much faster than LB, it can grab images and videos, and it's multi-threaded for two simultaneous downloads.

  31. Yes, as long as Emumovies actually has that content of course, its a seamless experience, no different to the current scraper in Launchbox, you will just have a few extra options if you punch in your credentials.

  38. I didn't see a post directly about this, so I thought I would share. After a bit of research, I finally got Pinball FX3 setup in LaunchBox as individual tables. 1. Setup an emulator for Pinball FX3: Set the Emulator Application Path to wherever your "Steam.exe" is. Do this instead of pointing it "Pinball FX3.exe". For Default Command-Line Parameters add "-applaunch 442120 -table_". Select Don't use quotes. Select No space before ROM. Select Use file name only without file extension. Make sure the Sample Command shows up as "Steam.exe -applaunch 442120 -table_File". Like this: 2. I also like to set a "Pinball FX" Platform with a Platform Category. 3. Then just import the ".pxp" files from the Pinball FX3 Steam directory as individual ROMs. Make sure to Use the files in their current location option. That should do it. Hope that helps.

  42. submitted to LB database. BTW there is a misspelling on the front of the box and repeated on the back the word "humans" is spelled as "fumans", unless I'm mistaken and there are actually fumans in the game.

  43. 1- Lock/ Unlock with pin menu is the way to go. 2- Hide/ Show can be a check box as an extra option for these locked games. 3- Everyone happy!

  44. Ok the Launcher is done! ? I removed the GUI for now as it isn't ready for general use it's more for my own personal use as it was more of a proof of concept and something I personally wanted to create to see if I could do it taking inspiration from RLUI. You will be able to edit the included config files and create your own by using your own favorite text editor such as Notepad++ or my favorite Visual Studio Code. The only thing left to do is pretty much just post it and instructions on how to set it up in LaunchBox (which is really easy). The folder structure is customizable but does use a similar file/folder structure like RL for saving your Info Cards (Instruction Cards like in RocketLauncher) and Sound FX. The Launcher for Altirra supports the following: Atari 8-Bit Computer Systems (400/800/XL/XE). Atari 5200. Atari XEGS. Supports Altirra profiles as well as many more features like Various RAM Sizes, Cheats, Covox, RAMDisks and much more. Info Cards (Instruction Cards) up to 4 you can create. Supports PNG images. Info Cards support sound effects in MP3 or WAV format. Cinematic startup/shutdown videos. Per game configs. Can launch/run Basic, Binary, Carts, Disks and Tape formats. Comes with configs for all supported systems to get you started of which most of the Atari 5200 and XEGS have are close if not complete. Works with LaunchBox/BigBox Pause feature as well!
