This is a work in progress and more will be added over time. Controls/notes display now has a keyboard hotkey - numpad plus; press numpad minus + numpad plus to display it, then again to go back to the game. Created some new overlays (bezels) - Black Tiger, Retrograde, and Supremacy - these can be toggled between by going to C64 Dreams > C64 Dreams > Utilities > Overlays and starting the relevant .bat. Project Firestart is the default. Group and version fields added to game details spreadsheet. This is a work in progress and more information will be added over time. Created custom Antimicro profiles for Aquaplane, Death Bringer, and Thrust Misc Trimmed some unnecessary files from Retroarch - reduced size by about 150MB Added many titles to Best Of - Vol. 3. It now has 123 games. Games with custom notes 221B Baker Street A.M.C. - Astro Marine Corps Advanced Dungeons & Dragons - Heroes of the Lance Alien - The Computer Game (Electric Dreams) Barbarian - The Ultimate Warrior Bard's Tale - Tales of the Unknown, Volume I, The Bard's Tale II, The Bard's Tale III, The Boom Bruce Lee: Return of Fury Castles of Doctor Creep, The Catacombs of Gold Combat Zone Complex Corx - Rebel Racers Death Bringer Die Hard Dominion Double Dare (GameTek) Dracula's Castle New games with multitap (3-4 controller) support Ivan 'Ironman' Stewart's Super Off Road Tie Break New configs with custom dimensions Death Bringer (NTSC dimension adjustments) Donkey Kong (Oxyron) Forgotten Forest Frogger Arcade Paperboy Turbo Outrun Zolyx Just a reminder, but if you're not using 1080p, you're going to need to change the resolution setting via C64 Dreams > C64 Dreams > Utilities > Screen Resolution Adjustment and then starting one of the .bats. There are options for 1080p (default / complete), 1600x900, 1440p, and 4k. For games that have custom dimension settings (there are 25 of these), the dimensions will need to be adjusted to meet your resolution needs. @jophran has made them for 1600x900, minus the new ones that were added in this set, but none of the others are covered. If anyone who has access to a 1440p or 4k monitor would like to assist with this, please let me know.

    I just put out the 10.0-beta-2 release. I decided to switch up to the 10.0 release (instead of 9.11), because I've made some major backend changes to support Android and such. This new beta includes the following: New Feature: A new Export to Android wizard is now available under the tools menu Fixed: Big Box was erroring in some situations for games without any platform set (and possibly no games found situations) I'm currently waiting on Google to approve the Android release, but that should be out in beta form very soon. I'll create a new forum post for the Android release when it's out.

    I've been doing some testing with the new core, I've run into a couple snags so far, mostly minor stuff. I submitted an issue for three of them, the first of which was fixed within an hour of me submitting it so that's encouraging! I really appreciate rsn8887 and sonninnos' work, and I'm really glad the core is getting some more love. EDIT: Issue 2 resolved and issue 3 turns out is actually a bug in Retroarch itself, not the Vice core. Those guys rock!

    I've been back and forth with them several times now. Hopefully the one I submitted this morning will be the last revision. There's been a lot of confusion about whether the app is a game or not, and Google hasn't exactly been straightforward with me in explaining exactly what needs changed. But anyways, yeah. If we're lucky, it'll be ready today. But yes, I'll announce it once it's live for sure.

    Personally I will love being able to fire up Launchbox on my Shield for emulating 16bit consoles and such. Using my gaming PC for playing Snes really feels like a unnecessary electric eater at times.

    Zombeaver, the quality and breadth of the work you are doing with these releases is insane. New games, new features, updated versions, custom notes, new bezels, the list goes on. And now with possible savestates and an improved VICE core around the corner, there is more to come, apparently! Thank you so much!

    While I feel pretty good about the state of these lists, I am also eager to share, fix, add, or update. Feel free to send suggestions my way. Each spreadsheet also includes all the sources I used to compile the data. REMINDER: These are not in order of “Best” these are in order of mentions based upon aggregating a number of “Best of” lists. In some cases, smaller lists, or higher ranked games were given greater weight to arrive at a more balanced list. I realize that I have omitted some systems - either because there weren’t enough quality games released, games are still being released, or I don’t have them in my Launchbox set-up (yet). These took me a long time to compile. I hope they are helpful to some. I wanted to include the xml playlist files, but I switched to using custom tags on my games - and creating playlists based on the custom tags. So in short, my XML playlist files won't be very helpful to you unless I convert them. If there is desire for them - maybe at least 5-10 requests, I'll do the labor and put it together. I can also include custom images (samples shown) Best of lists now include: Handhelds: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1FiWrU75w5pkSw7GO036iHdrvtBmEsbVh2Kka4K9p6z0/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Nintendo Gameboy Nintendo Gameboy Advance Nintendo DS Nintendo 3DS Sega Game Gear Sony PSP Atari Lynx Bandai Wonderswan / Color Neo Geo Pocket / Color Virtual Boy Sega Consoles: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ksBmsFaLhv1ngK2xDJAai_ollUfukWqZeltlcXv8prQ/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Sega SG-1000 Sega Master System Sega Genesis / Mega Drive Sega 32X Sega CD Sega Saturn Sega Dreamcast Nintendo Consoles: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1f_xtOy_Ksv9Q_Rp99eoR6y5ku7HesM9o2dC0n_5VNZ0/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Nintendo Entertainment System Super Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo 64 Nintendo Gamecube Nintendo Wii Nintendo Wii U Nintendo Wii Ware Arcade: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1h3qIxywuZhopstrUF75IiC7byknCR9gqC5SzHnR8W2o/edit?usp=sharing Includes: Arcade games!!!

    One more thing that I do want to mention: anyone can test the Android export process by going to Tools > Export to Android in the LaunchBox beta. You don't have to have the app installed to get a collection ready on your Android device. Then, when you do get the app installed, your collection will automatically show up in the app.

    Playing ROMs from the cloud would be on very shaky legal grounds, so unfortunately I don't think we'll ever go in that direction. Also, I was headed that way back when we originally build the LaunchBox Games Database, but I learned that most people were not very interested in a cloud-based solution (which surprised me at the time). Noted, though I did make an attempt to get these on the poll, and they didn't get much excitement in the live stream. We'll get them in there eventually though. The first Android beta will be out in the next few days; I'm just waiting on Google to approve it, so all these questions will be answered. For the moment, though, forgive me, but I'd rather focus on dev than provide elaborate answers here.

    eXoDOS v4 is just DOS. After I get it out I'll be working on Win3xO version 2, which will be launchbox compatible. No idea what the eta is on that right now though. I'll have to dig in and get an idea of how many new games might be going in, and how long it takes ti import everything into launchbox.

    Hey guys, I wanted to build an arcade machine for quite some time using Bigbox as the main Menu. But I didn't have the tools to make a good arcade cabinet case. Now I ordered a sitdown diy arcade flatpack (called "AE HYPER AIR32") from Arcade Europe. It finally arrived yesterday and here is what I got: Really great quality, no thin mdf, even on the backside. It came allready assembled (except for the round top and 2 doors that hide the shelves on the lower part of the machine) and also is really heavy. Had to carry it up to the third floor. Glad my janitor helped me, but still I was done for the day after that 🤣 Tomorrow, I will start the painting process which will take quite a while, I just hope I don't mess up 😨

    Just install the same way you would any drive. I will warn you though performance will probably be awful. USB sticks are simply not designed for constant reads and writes, they are for storage, not for running programs from.

    Ok so back to this machine, I exited Bigbox and attempted to change the screen resolution in Windows 10 (gawd I hate Windows) and most likely due to it being a VGA cable the 1920x1080 looks horrible - in Windows. But once I start up Bigbox and play games, all looks great, including the theme. So, I’m happy. Thanks again. -Mike

    Well all the games you are running will be at a lower resolution than your monitor, which is fine, and Launchbox itself can happily run at that resolution also (although the UI will look rather large) but this theme specifically is coded for 1080p, well i say coded, its more likely that he is simply using 1080p art assets and placement, so they dont scale correctly for you Most users these days have at least 1080p displays, even for emulation purposes, so most themes are designed with 1080p widescreen in mind. Some themes with the way they are coded and what art assets they use dont care what the monitor resolution is, but others with specifically created and placed artwork will.

    That's great Napalm. Glad you managed to snap it up mate. I've not started building my cab yet so it will primarily be designed around the width of the LCD. It was a bit bigger than I was looking for but, as you say, they aren't that easy to find so didn't want to pass it up. Happy days!

    Yeah I still have to hang on to Rocketlauncher because of the Bezels that I use on systems I don't use Retroarch with. I love my collection of bezels, and since I only use Retroarch for handhelds and a few other systems, I have a lot of bezels that are used for other systems through RL. Launchbox has pretty good fade screens I've seen, but since I already have a crapload, and some really cool game specific ones in RL, I still use RL for fades, and it handles fades over PC games very well. Rocketlauncher's PAUSE screen is still the best I've ever used. Mostly because you can program the keypresses for the emulator's save and load state slots, and it does a great job of sending those keypresses for you. It also takes a screenshot for each slot and displays it when you select the slot, so you can see where you were when you saved it. You can also easily look at the manual from the pause screen there, just have to have the pdf in the right folder under the right system. Lastly, the keymapping function. A godsend for my old ms-dos platformers (keen, cosmo, bio menace, etc.). Point RL to the joy2key.exe, and then from within the keymapper tab you can add a new profile, click on the game from the list, and then it opens joy2key for you so you can map the controls right then and there; save the profile and close joy2key, and the entry is now in RL for that specific game. You can also do platform specific keymapping so for example, on other emulators that I use an original controller on, I can still have a global keymap for that platform that says if I hold the select button down for like 700ms, then it will hit the esc key, so I can exit the emulator without having to reach over to the keyboard. i feel that these three things are really the final frontier of having a complete front end experience. Someday launchbox will have it all covered, I'm confident. But as of right now, Rocketlauncher has it covered better and more completely.

    Many of those reasons to be honest, I'm not quite sure. Nostalgia, hoarding impulses, desire to have a large offline collection and make it look pretty for friends, I don't know. I can't quite describe it, but it's there.

    minimal View File minimal I wanted a simple and clean look to the startup theme, more of a splash screen rather than a loading screen. Included are all the files to make your own logos for platforms. I have commented out the now loading text seen in the screen shots but this can easily be edited back in with notepad++, look for the <!-- --> lines inside of the name.xaml files. Feel free to modify how you wish. Comes with Red, Purple and Black logo options. Submitter keltoigael Submitted 02/18/2019 Category Startup Themes

    Try deleting the ID if there is one and then reducing the game name to just a couple words of the name. That worked for me in the past as it will usually bring up a list of games with the partial name match. Just for kicks I tested with Watch Dogs 2 by searching only "Watch" and the full list showed Watch Dogs 2 from the Launchbox Database. Issue is the game is listed as "Watch_Dogs 2". Searching for "Secret World" I was able to find the full game name from the DB as well. Rime no luck finding no matter what I did.
