    Hey all, the first 11.0 beta is out now with the following: New Feature: The Clean Up Media process has a new option to scan images for rough matches. This new option can make the clean up media process take an extremely long time, but will save you loads of disk space in your collection, especially if you download media both from the LaunchBox Games Database and from EmuMovies. The process identifies duplicate images in your collection even if they are different sizes, faded, etc. The largest duplicate image is kept, and the rest are listed for deletion. Improvement: GOG game install state changes will now auto-update for games installed via the GOG Galaxy client Fixed: When using All Games as your startup view in Big Box, sometimes the alphanumeric index was not populating correctly Fixed: Corrected an issue with the pause key bindings that may be causing them to fail Fixed: The Play Mode filter in LaunchBox was not working properly when multiple play modes were selected In addition to the above, we have the following in the works for the 11.0 release: Automatic recording of video snaps via hotkeys Automatic screenshot capturing Multiple video support Overhaul of the Add/Edit interface Much of the above is already finished or nearly finished, but as they're all tied together, it will be a bit before a beta comes out with the bottom four. The Add/Edit overhaul is taking a bit more time than we expected.

    Version 1.0


    Night at the Arcade was built during a Theme Stream broadcast. If you are interested in creating themes, follow me on Twitch, or watch the videos later on YouTube. A Catalog of past Theme Streams can be found on the forums here: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/54760-retro-faerans-theme-stream-big-box-theme-creation/ Retro Bedroom I create a brand new theme based around a childhood bedroom from the late 80s, early 90s. This is my take on the infamous bedroom theme. Like always, you can download both the Big Box theme files, along with the COMMUNITY Theme Creator files (which allows you to edit the theme to your liking using y2guru's COMMUNITY Theme Creator). This theme includes everything to start you off reliving your childhood memories. Included are a batch of poster advertisements, and video advertisements for over 40 systems. Come for the nostalgia, stay for the lava lamp. Watch this theme being built: Watch on Twitch: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/671130093 Watch on YouTube: https://youtu.be/6oHCip2B6GU Instructions Retro Bedroom - Theme.zip - BigBox theme. Place extracted folder in your LAUNCHBOX\Themes folder Retro Bedroom - COMMUNITY Project files.zip - Creator Project files. Place extracted folder in your COMMUNITY\My Theme Projects folder This theme only works on version 10.15 and above due to its reliance on some new bindings!

    Beta 2 is out now with the following: New Feature: OBS Studio integration has been added, which allows you to easily record videos and automatically assign them to your games; take a look under Tools > Options > Integrations > OBS Studio in LaunchBox New Feature: Multiple videos can now be associated with your games, and videos can now be categorized under four categories: Video Snap, Theme Video, Trailer, and Recording. These categories can also be prioritized (like images) under Tools > Options > Media > Video Priorities. New Feature: New options have been added to all download media and import processes to remove roughly-matched duplicate images, similar to the Clean Up Media addition. This should reduce the need to run the Clean Up Media process, as unnecessary duplicate images will automatically be removed during imports and media downloads. Improvement: The game add/edit dialog has been completely overhauled to allow for future flexibility and fixes a number of usability issues with the previous version (such as the multi-select dropdowns) We plan to add one more feature before the official release: automatic screenshots. They're mostly done already, but need to go through our internal testing process yet. For OBS Studio integration, we will be putting out a tutorial before the official release, but here's some guidelines: You'll need to install the latest version of OBS Studio yourself You'll need to go into the OBS settings and add hotkeys for start and stop recording You can configure OBS to record whatever you want (screen, aspect ratio, etc.) Once OBS is configured, you can go into the LaunchBox options and fill in the fields Finally, during a game, you can use the OBS hotkey to start and stop recording Upon returning to LaunchBox or Big Box, you'll be prompted to associate any completed video recordings with the game that you just played

    Version 1.3.0


    This set is based off of ABeezy's Nintendo Game Boy Advance Carts which was released fairly recently. Beautiful set which includes all USA releases, but unfortunately no Euro exclusives. This set includes most Euro exclusives, and some Japanese translated games I have. I also included the GBA Video titles which are not really games, but cool to have anyway. I did remove a lot of the multi game carts that did not include original releases. Games like 2 Games in 1: Finding Nemo: The Continuing Adventures + The Incredibles were excluded because single cart version of these games do exist.

    This plugin requires some theme modification and is only compatible with SystemViews where the menu (back,options,manage themes,etc) is on the left side. How to install. Download this: SystemViewApps.zip Unblock it. Put SysMenu.dll in Launchbox/Plugins Go to Launchbox/Themes/"The theme your using"/Views/... and make a backup of SystemView.xaml. If you are familiar with modifying themes: Open your SystemView.xaml and add the following line: xmlns:sysM="clr-namespace:SysMenu;assembly=SysMenu" Near the top like so: And inside the grid add the following line <sysM:SysMenuControl Grid.Column="1" Grid.ColumnSpan="2" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Panel.ZIndex="2" /> Change the Column, ColumnSpan, ZIndex as needed. If you are not familiar with modifying themes: You can download this default theme SystemView.xaml which will work with any theme: SystemView Xaml.zip Replace your themes SystemView.xaml, dont forget to backup your SystemView.xaml in case you want to revert back. The image at the top of this thread is the default SystemView. If you want to use your themes SystemView, go to Launchbox/Themes/Your theme/Views/. And post the SystemView.xaml on this thread and i'll modify it for you. How to add apps. Open Launchbox, go to tools, manage platforms... and add a new platform. Name this platform exactly "System Menu Apps". What ever apps you add to this platform will show up in the system view. Add a "Box Front" image to your apps. Square images look best. Set all apps that you add to the "System Menu Apps" platform to hidden so it doesnt display the platform in BB's platform wheel view.

    Beta 4 is out now with the following: Fix for download media possible null reference error Sorted media downloads alphabetically on the download media form Hopeful fix for the GOG import issues Fix for duplicated video files issue (when using manually specified videos) Clean up media should now work properly with the new video categories Fix for the disabled search button issue (in add/edit) Updated all folder browsers in the add/edit screen to use the full file browser Thanks to everyone for finding all the issues here. Our apologies for the issues with video file duplication (if you happened to experience it). You may have to restore your data from a backup in that case if you want to keep your videos only in the previous locations (then you should be able to just delete the newly-created video files).

    Version 1.0.0


    This is a complete collection of 2D Boxes for the Original Sony PlayStation Japan Region. There are two versions. A version with all the covers squared off and a version with all the covers in CD Jewel case templates. The collection is complete and named after the 2019-3-31 ReDump rom set. There are also around 220 extra Boxes in the set that were not included in the ReDump rom set. Please note that some of the original files were not very high quality scans. This collection was originally a collaboration between @aorin1 , @diskmach and Myself in making the 3D Box set that I have now converted to 2D Boxes for this collection.

    ...started another one. Trying to design simpler banners, that everyone can make more (logo is separated from the banner). Neutral colors, less info, bigger images, more animations. This will look like a burial chamber for your collection. Keep it clean, keep it simple.

    11.2-beta-1 is out now with a hopeful fix for the issues that @Xirvet and @sialivi were having with Clean Up Media. As it turns out, it was not MalwareBytes, but rather the differences in number formatting between the US and other countries. Countries/systems that use a comma instead of a decimal point were the culprit. Hopefully this beta fixes it, and then I can put out another official release.

    Version 1.0.0


    INTRODUCTION No real introduction, I was trying out the new custom images in the theme creator and came up with this to test them out. What I have done is supply a custom image for every platform in the LaunchBox Database to date. It also relies on fanart as the main background but there is a fallback image for when there isn't any. Ideally I would like to be able to have 5 or 6 fallback images that randomly get used in the future.... @y2guru Hope you enjoy it _____________________________ THE MAIN THING TO DO AFTER INSTALLING IT... REFRESH THE IMAGE CACHE INSTALLATION **Download the zip file and unblock it (right click the zip file, goto "Properties" then at the bottom put a tick in the "Unblock" box, hit ok when done) then extract the folder to --\Launchbox\Themes\ oh and REFRESH THE IMAGE CACHE Also there are some sound samples I found that give it that Clicky feel, I recommend downloaded them aswell. As always thanks go to @y2guru for the amazing COMMUNITY Theme Creator for BigBox.

    Version 0.222


    NOTE: This does NOT interfere with the Leaderboards at all. **This removes the nag screen that informs you if a rom doesn't work correctly, or if at all, if you use this no nag, then please do NOT go to the mame support site with issues with games, please only use if you understand that there will be no help from anyone mamedev as you are using a modified version of mame. mame64.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.222 Its recommended to download the full 0.222 official pack and install it, then just overwrite the exe with the replacement, this covers any changes the mame devs may have made to the support files. After you have done this, make sure you copy the folders artwork, ctrlr, cheat, hlsl, ini, folders and the mame.ini file from your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install. For those of you on old installs make sure in the mame.ini file you have the following set. Skip_gameinfo 1 ***If you use this no nag, then please do NOT report game issues or rom issues to mame support

    While none of these are of any real interest to me personally they are huge additions and just another reason why Launchbox stands out in the front end market / scene. As far I am aware no other front end offers this stuff.

    The first 10.16 beta will most likely be out this week. It's just that we've been working on some big features that take more development time than usual.
