    ArtBook - [Theme Stream] View File Retro Faeran's Theme Stream In every Theme Stream, I build a BigBox theme from the ground up for the program LaunchBox, using the COMMUNITY Theme Creator.

    Yes, multiple save states is a must for a pause screen. I'm sure if not this round, or the next round, or the one after that, eventually it will become a feature.

    I've made a web-based tool to, among other things, help make 1G1R sets for any disc-based (redump) platform and it needs some final testing before I give it a wider audience. It should work on any current browser on any computer/OS. Tested with Chrome, Safari and Firefox on MacOS, Windows and iPhone (use it on a computer). Please let me know if you can give it a look. Bonus if you have a Redump account. The tool can help make bulk download lists that can be imported into download managers, or download single titles. It can also make batch command files that can be used at a command prompt to manipulate your current set of titles - like to clean a huge mess that might be left after downloading every game from every region for a platform. Title selection goes through a de-duplification and priority system which looks at the base title, regions, version #'s, edition type and languages before finally applying a manually-created clone filter with North American or European preference (or it can be disabled). The result of the final list is that every single title will be displayed restricted by your filtering choices. Want only US titles? Want titles from any region as long as they support English? Want to prioritize the different macro-regions when selecting titles? Want only US and European but no Japan/Asia regardless of language? Want only titles released in North America that also feature French language? Want titles from anywhere in the world that have both English and German? All of this and much more can be done. In addition to pulling only the titles matching your settings, this tool will construct appropriate filenames to match the No-Intro and Redump standards. You can add any file extension you want to the displayed filename to match the downloads available to you - for example you might need files labeled ".zip" for one platform/site and ".rar" or ".7z" elsewhere. Quick overview: Pre-Filter & Restrict the Source Data to look at: The tool builds a master list of titles according to the options you set Basic setting (mandatory) System/ Platform - supports Nintendo GameCube, Wii, Wii-U, Sony PSX/1-PS4 & PSP, Sega CD, Saturn & Dreamcast, PC, etc. Release Category (optional) - All Categories, Games, Applications, Educational, etc. Region (optional) - All Regions, Americas, Europe, ASIA, USA, Canada, Japan, Germany and more. Language (optional) - All Languages, English, Japanese, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Portuguese Hide selected "Edition" types: Demos, Previews, Beta or Unlicensed (tool starts with defaults pre-selected) Final output filtering Options: Language - huge list - you can set the data source to All or a different language if you want to force 2 languages on every title Regional priority of 3 top-level (macro) regions covering all releases allowing to block one of the three Clone lists to remove duplicates that have different titles from different regions (pick North American or European preference) Exclude any number of keywords or phrases you specify (example: you don't want to list anything that contains "tetris") Only include keywords of phrases you specify (example: you want to only list "Harry Potter" titles) Keywords can be match as whole words/phrases or as substring (example: "bat" won't match "Batman" for Whole Word but will for Substring) Import/upload your own file list (dir /b to a text file in Windows to a or cut-and-paste to a text file from Finder in MacOS) to exclude from results Import/upload your own "Have" title list made with ClrMamePro to exclude from the results Uploaded file should contain filenames in No-Intro/Redump format with or without any file extension Uploaded file is temporarily saved to the server with unique encrypted filename, overwritten when you process with new options and deleted every 10 minutes Final output De-Duplification: Based on title matching Based on clone list (built-in and platform automatically selected) Versioning (higher versions have preference) Editions (Originals have preference) Regions (multiple region hierarchies automatically selected by your macro region priority setting) Languages (always contains the languages you selected, titles with fewer languages have higher priority) Final output file naming: No-Intro standard "The" properly moved after base title Region inserted into the correct place Disc#'s correctly placed Languages only listed when more than 1 and in the preferred order Version # is optional - always omitted when "v1.0" - also supports "Rev #" style File extension is optional and can be set by you Final output line formatting: Specify any text to include before filenames • URL text to make download links: "http://somesite.com/files/" - links can be copied/imported to download managers like JDownloader • Shell/command text for batch files: "mv " (for example to move the files in a *unix shell) Specify any text to include after filenames • Shell/command path/arguments: " /volumes/somedrive/files_to_keep/" (used with a move this would move all the files to this folder) Final output lists also temporarily saved on the server so that you can download them directly instead of copy-paste Saved with unique & encrypted names so multiple people's lists will never interfere with each other & never be cached HTML list link can be copied with "copy link" and that can be pasted directly into JDownloader or other download manager Link files automatically deleted within about 10 minutes Screenshot:

    OK, finished editing the first post with some details. If you can help take a look, let me know. A couple of Q & A: Q: Can this tool list English games from any region? A: Yes Q: What about English games from Europe or Japan or... that aren't marked English in the filename? A: Yes

    You can put your MAME roms wherever you like as long as you tell MAME itself where to look for them. As for importing i use the fullset importer, left at default settings that will only import known working games into Launchbox, which is currently around 2700 or so.

    Well apparently it isn't highly requested yet, but yeah I love utilizing all the save slots available for an emulator, just to have options. RL's Pause takes a screenshot when you do a save state, so that you can quickly see where you were at as you scroll through slots to load.

    I'll upload bezels here instead of the download section for the time being, once I've made a large collection I'll upload it to the download section. Here's my first Mame 4K bezel for the Lights Out series shdancer.zip

    MAME Intellivision Software System Artwork File for use with the "bezelprojectSA-Intellivision" bezels pack View File Note before downloading: This is for MAME only and is not compatible with RetroArch. This custom version of the Intellivision Software System artwork file, intv.zip contains a multi-view lay file configured to work with the "bezelprojectSA-Intellivision" bezels pack. Any game associated with the pack can be set to display it's own bezel at launch. Games for which there are no Bezel Project bezels and therefore use Default Command-Line Parameters will open with the generic bezel Mattel-Intellivision.png. The bezel images are not included, so you will need to download the pack and drop the bezels into the artwork intv.zip yourself. You will also need to set LaunchBox Custom Command-line Parameters to allow MAME to choose the correct bezel for each game. This is explained in the download. The intv.zip artwork file will work whether you are emulating using direct media calling (such as games with the bin, int, itv or rom extension) or emulating using the intv and intvecs software lists. With MAME, your Intellivision game names and their bezel image names do not have to match. The actual matching relationship is between the Custom Command Line <viewname> parameter and the descriptive view name used in the lay, and MAME will accept a partial match with the lay's view name string. Once downloaded, unzip the file MAME Intellivision SA.zip and read the enclosed text files. Meow! Submitter spycat Submitted 12/09/2019 Category Platform Bezels/Overlays

    @Gamer Two were already in the pack made by Viking which is attached in the zip files at beginning of the thread. Here are the other two:

    Me either. There are some great bezel packs out there that recreate that cabinet/arcade look, but I prefer good looking bezels that maximize the play area as well. (There are some exceptions in special cases though )
