  11. I am starting a project that will eventually include every cartridge for cart based systems. I have finished the first, the Nintendo Super Game Boy Player cartridge. This will be combined with a Game Boy cartridge for the final template. The graphics will all be vector based, with 300dpi output. The final Photoshop templates will all have Smart Objects that, using an included PS script, can be pointed at a collection of images to generate output for any number of games. Instructions will also be included. I will host the project files in my GitHub repo. HERE in a

  16. I'm writing this tutorial to help people cutting down the Mame full set with only what their controls can play. The current Launchbox importer is pretty good if you have an Xbox or Playstation controller. If like me you have a 2 players arcade machine you're probably limited with 4 way / 8 way joysticks leaving the analog games unplayable. This method isn't an automated process and will take some time. This tutorial have 2 objective depending if you're an archiver and want all playable games according to your controls - or - if you just want the best playable games according to your controls.

  17. Got PCSX2 working... sort of. First many thanks to @Sterophonick for the scripts. Could not have done it without those (and the explanation). Anyway, copy the following contents to a file and call it pcsx2.bat (or whatever) and put it in your Emulators section in LaunchBox: Change the "Emulation/PCSX2" of the script to the location of your PCSX2 binary, just make sure you run PCSX2 and set it up first. Now for the weirdness, for some reason it will not work with a double-click, but if you right click and select the .bat file it works fine. No idea why, as it does not do this for D

  18. Ah, that makes perfect sense. Thank you! Also works when I point to the path of the binary with Wine addressing (so, Z:\bin\dolphin-emu). Yay! Now to figure out PCSX2. Hmm.

  19. You'll need to compile Dolphin yourself and then place the "dolphin-emu" executable in a folder named "Dolphin" in your emulators folder.

Currently working on a script that will run Windows games in Wine, however it's getting a bit frustrating. Dunno if I will ever get it to work

  21. @Sterophonick Well done! I need to try that script for native running. I run nearly all the emulators in Wine Retroarch, but PS2 just doesn't play ball, at least not to the level I want it to. I personally run a Manjaro Mate system, and can verify (for reasons I do not understand) that the bugged context menu isn't present on all desktop environments. On Manjaro it happens in XFCE (tested this on my old mGAme distro - RIP) and also on a couple Ubuntu-like distros (though I don't remember the desktops). I've also had issues with Cinnamon in both Manjaro and Mint, in that the LaunchBox

  22. Quick update: I was able to get steam games to run, albeit very hackily, and I don't know of a way to make this work better... Anyway here's the script. cmd /c start /unix /home/%user%/.steam/debian-installation/ubuntu12_32/steam -nominidumps -nobreakpad %1 And here are the "Launching" settings for your game. Try it for yourself, see if it works.

  23. I have been performing experiments with running LaunchBox on Linux through Wine, and I gotta say, with a bit of tweaking, it might be viable! I was able to import games through the Tools menu, and was able to launch a game! However, because it is being run through Wine, actually launching native Linux versions of emulators is a little bit tricky. With that in mind, I was able to write some batch scripts that will do just that! The example I'll put here is the one I wrote for RetroArch, for /f "delims=" %%i in ('winepath -u %2') do set content=%%i if %1=="gba" ( se

  32. Thanks for the directions; I changed the filesystem to be like the folder structure above (yeah, I had messed up, my mistake). And now, it's also working perfectly: native RetroArch's working like a charm. Thanks a lot!

  33. So is this what your filesystem looks like? LaunchBox Emulators RetroArch RetroArch-Linux-x86_64-Nightly.AppImage.home .config retroarch configs default.cfg cores <cores> RetroArch-Linux-x86_64-Nightly.AppImage

  34. So far I tried the Steam script and it launched my game! I was hoping someone like you would come along with something this. I use the startup screens which do work but setting the time to say 11 seconds to give the game time to start the startup screen seems to only last like 3 seconds. Might have to do with the bat file or wine who knows. Also is the Dolphin script for the native Linux version? Thanks again!

  35. I remember a while back when Jason Carr said that he spent his weekend porting LaunchBox to MonoDevelop and got it to run, while BigBox was not feasible. I wonder what happened to that project... It certainly would boost Linux gaming quite a bit, for me Lutris isn't quite cutting it compared to what I can get with LaunchBox.

  36. I agree that most of the bugs you have observed are Wine based, though the bugged context menus are likely not. Though my only proof on that is when I installed an XFCE variant Manjaro distro it happened, while on my Manjaro Mate it does not. It also doesn't in Cinnamon, though that had it's own issues. The biggest plus side is that the vast majority of cores in RetroArch run like a dream in Wine, with little to no issues at all, and though it is slower than in Windows, Big Box also works rather well (even with themes). Believe it or not the largest issue we face now is installing

  37. I find it very usable, however it has been tedious writing these scripts for the emulators and having to manually edit every Steam, Windows, and Linux game to have them work. The specific desktop I use is the variant of GNOME that comes with Pop!_OS 20.10. There's definitely a ways to go in terms if functionality, and I feel like some of the bugs are more of a Wine problem rather than a LaunchBox problem. I don't see it being usable as a primary game launcher on Linux without a lot of changes being made to either LaunchBox or Wine. It's never going to be perfect unless Laun

  43. Today I am adding a new feature to my Slingshot Launchers. You can now assign a hotkey to take screenshots during gameplay! I also added sound effects when taking screenshots which you can use a wav/mp3 file. Initial test are working great and also all screenshots are date/time stamped and organized within folders as well. Currently all screenshots are saved as png files but plan to have different formats that you can save them as.
