  2. Hey all, just a quick teaser. Development is coming along nicely. We now have a few new views with wheels, Banner Box-style banners, etc., as well as favorites, folder options, and more. I'm hoping to get the new version out within a few weeks.

  3. Those of you who might be interested in a new version for Android, please see here: Also, FYI, in the slightly more distant future, this Android version should be able to be ported to native Linux, as well as eventually Windows for use on lower end devices. That's a ways off, but this is our current plan for lower end devices.

    NOTE: This does NOT interfere with the Leader boards 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 at mamedev as you are using a modified version of mame. mame.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.234 (Note mame no longer carries the 64 in its exe name changed by Devs in 0.229) It's advisable to download the full 0.234 official pack and install

    Requires BigBox 11.14 Mega sound pack for BigBox when scrolling through wheels. Instead of a single click you get many iconic game sounds & a few random, suprise sounds as you scroll. The pack is put together & normalized by me. Of course sound cred goes to OG devs. It has about 1/10th of the common sounds included w/ stock Hyperspin (I re-downloaded/normalized only the best.) I have added a ton more sounds sourced from all over the place & normalized them as well. This will give you a unique wheel sound with every move. It will also sound quit

  7. Thank you for the positive feedback guys. It does really help after having a stressful Saturday like this. I'm very glad we got it resolved.

  8. Patreon has been asked for before and the reason there is no Patreon is because Jason doesn't want LB development be governed by those with more money to throw at Jason.

  11. A big thank you to @faeran and @Jason Carr for their help !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was blocked by an obsolete plugin that I had not developed. (and that I am quite incapable of developing) Remember that I am a graphic designer, not a coder. I am so damn bad and a very slow developer. Fortunately, our 2 Superman have integrated color management by platform into BigBox !!! If that's not incredible!!!!! An updated version to correct this problem will soon be rolled out to regular channels. Thank you for your patience ! Some of you know, I have had a few health p

  14. Every new feature we always build can be turned off. I can't remember the last time we forced a new feature on anyone. That said, we always reserve the right to put customization options behind the premium version.

  15. 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/usel

    Soqueroeu TV Backgrounds Backgrounds for Mega Bezel Shader on Retroarch ---------------------------------------------------------------------------- This is about my original TV backgrounds for use in conjuction with HyperspaceMadness Mega Bezel Reflection Shader. I think lots of people would be pleased to play old games using an actual CRT TV, so I created my own project as a nice way to have a simulated TV
 INSIDE your actual TV or monitor. Believe me, this works pretty well! Please consider my work with this project as complete. New backgrounds may or may not eventually

  20. No worries; we definitely appreciate the support, but we would never ask anyone to pay more than once.

  21. I think there should be multiple fields you can lock out. Region, rating, (including games that have no rating), even entire platforms should be able to be locked out.

  22. I just explained to you our steps of running the software through Virus Total before release. We run through all false positives reported and do our best to confirm that they are false positives before release. Yes, we always review all commits before releasing new versions. We use Visual Studio as the build tools. I've run virus checks on Visual Studio on the release machine and they are not compromised. We run the normal tools like everyone else, and they're running in the background. I'm not sure what kind of audit you're looking for here, but it doesn't sound like w

  24. 100% the performance for me. I find it so bad that I stopped using LaunchBox entirely. Performance in terms of both using it as a launcher (things like the speed of scrolling) and, even more so, doing anything to do the games database, which always takes forever and makes me give up. It'd also be nice if the UI didn't put my real name on screen at all times as some kind of "thank you" for paying for the software. I don't want to dox myself should I ever stream or share a screenshot of it without remembering to Photoshop it.

  26. it's a pity an "Update games meta/media only if the LaunchboxDB for this game has been modified since last game update" option is not in the plan That would save me so much bandwith and time updating the meta/media of my build. But i still appreciate, more than a year after buying BB that the developpement is always super active.

  27. Yes, that is also true. We've always done our best to cater to the majority, not the vocal minority or (even worse), the richest minority. That is one huge advantage to a paid app over an open source app like Retroarch, where the highest-paying users determine more of the outcome of the product. Don't get me wrong, we love the crap out Retroarch. Open source is just open source.

  28. Keep in mind that we may still tackle those items at some point. The fact that they are not on this poll does not mean we won't implement them. We reduced the new poll down to 10 items, instead of the 40 that was on previous poll, in an effort to ensure that new polls will come up more quickly. There will be plenty of options for the future in this regard. Additionally, marquee features we have planned regardless of the poll results. Parsec integration, however, unfortunately is not a common request, so that one is a bit unlikely.

  29. @Koroth @Daliant Please remember that we have thousands of requests coming in. Just because you've seen something a handful of times does not mean that it's our most requested feature. When we come up with poll items, we have to consider community requests, votes, as well as efforts to implement it. If something is requested a ton and easy to implement, of course we're gonna implement it. However, if something is incredibly difficult to implement, we may not tackle it even if it's often requested, or at least not until we feel like we can prioritize the time required to tackle it. Fo

  30. There are a couple of items which remain undone from the 2019 poll that I was hoping to see on this list (better marquee configuration options, Parsec integration, etc.). Are those feature requests being discarded completely in favor of these options?

  31. I don't want to be difficult about what I want to say, but I am really surprised integrated controller mapping isn't on the list. To be fair, I don't have a bitbucket account so I did not request this feature myself. But this has been requested many many times over the years (at least on the forums) and really would add to the overall usability of LaunchBox and BigBox. And to you @Lordmonkus, how many questions or assists did you have about people wanting to add controller mappers as additional apps? I mean, maybe implementing controller mapping isn't easy. But it would simplify things massive

    I use the awesome Bigbox function to display marquees on a secondary monitor. For years I've been collecting high res Mame arcade marquees from all over the internet. Not all marquees are in 4K but many are, I've down scaled the resolution to max 3840 pixels wide and saved all in .jpg format for a good size and quality balance. This could be the largest high res marquee collection out there, not sure. Some game marquees could be missing. 1398 marquees total. Credits I have forgotten where I got all marquees through the years but I know many came from the legendary @Mr. Do collection se

  36. Because you did make a false report. That wasn't LaunchBox as you insinuated it was. You immediately became outraged without even confirming who you were talking to. I get it, I too was upset at virus notification but that doesn't excuse spreading disinformation or bad mouthing a company/software for something that turned out to be outside it's control. 5 hours after this thread was started they have fixed the issue by releasing a new build. That is unheard of in software. Jason's updates in this thread were well spoken and transparent as to how the issue happened in the first place. If y

  37. The Retroarch integration feature sounds awesome, that can really help streamline the platform setup processes as it advances in future updates. I do have a question about how that would work... would it come pre-installed natively in the LaunchBox folder structure, or will we have the ability to point it to a current folder, or a choice between the two? I have a second Retroarch installation specifically for HD texture mods. Also, a thing I would like to see with the Retroarch integration... would be a correct "bios present" field, next to a "core present (download/update [all])" field.

  38. Please make your suggestion on bitbucket. Moderators are not having a field day otherwise... It's quite simple, if you think something you thought would have been included in this year's poll, vote for it on bitbucket first. For example this is what I just did: https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/6160/supplements-folder And for this year's poll, to stay on topic, I mainly would hope for even more performance* and the integrated Retroarch core updating sounds really nice, thank you! *this would also include more bug-testing or? 11.12 was the only disappo

  39. Liking the RetroArch intergration and game suggestions... I however am still hoping for better marquee image support for those with streched LCD screens for marquees on an arcade cabinet. I know I am the minority here but we need atleast the ability to use a default system image for large library platforms.

  40. Oh, that's not how I had pictured it in my mind - yeah that would suck. How I pictured this feature was the ability to sort by suggested games. Instead of sorting by stars, you would sort by suggestions. Suggestions would be different from stars since they would be curated by one to three people who come up with a custom list of their favorite games and this list would be presented to the user as only those games, you wouldn't see any other games in that particular platform other than what is suggested. It would be enabled/disabled as easily as using the sort feature. That's how I im

Otherwise, if you've downloaded your theme from the forums, the forums themes have been updated as well.

  46. No problem. Thanks anyway for trying to help! @neil9000 Is it possible to WoL with the harmony hub? I don't find anything about that. I tried the "anymote smart remote" app on android without any hub. It has a beta plugin for the fire tv stick. But there is a problem.. On screen there is the "debug window" which i had to allow. If i do so, there is no connection at all and the window comes everytime i want it to connect.. So i hope someone have a solution, because the harmony app is expensive and should be the last choice..

  47. I still have to use it for the following features: 1. Fades. I just keep using my RL fades because I still have to use RL for all the other features. 2. Bezels. This is a big one for me, since I use mednafen for a bunch of systems, and RL will put a bezel on top of that. 3. Pause menu. LB's pause menu isn't enough yet. Especially with the save and load state menu. RL will send the save and load keystrokes to 9 slots, and shows you a screenshot snap from when you saved it. 4. Keymapping. The other big one. Especially for my PC games and MS-DOS platform. Super easy t

  48. Well, it took me a bit to dig through what is and isn't currently possible, but it does appear that Android 11 still does allow you to pretend to be an older application and use the older storage mechanisms. That appears to be what the other frontends are currently doing. There are still some silly restrictions on where and how you can share files (for example, our previous file extraction routines aren't working on Android 11 at all), but I'm grateful that it looks like there are ways to make things work on Android 11. Some of my testing with the other frontends was faulty, so I apologize for
