8-Bit Processor

8-Bit Processor (3/7)



  1. Sadly I'm not enrolled in the beta (LB is very time consuming to maintain for me so I didn't want to risk anything glitching out - this after I had a bad experience with XMLs losing data one or two years ago..so I didn't get into the beta ?) (btw at the time the issue turned out to be something mostly on my end, but I still got very burned out by the troubleshooting)
  2. @GTi as a temporary solution waiting for an update I could fix the file for you and send it back. I will simply delete the "bad" character, it probably is an emoji somewhere. If you don't need it right now I would suggest waiting for the official fix obviously.
  3. I PMed you. Check line 31872. It's the only instance of an illegal character in the file. Stackoverflow seems to have a few mentions of this causing issues with XMLs so you shouldn't have too much trouble finding a workaround.
  4. I'll add that for obvious reasons the suggested fix of restoring a backup will not work for this issue, so any user not able to edit xml files will not be able to fix this.
  5. Okay so, a couple more details. This is the error. Comparing the file with the one before the update shows no difference in a text editor. The line in question contains the value: &#xC I think this character is not okay to be parsed under the new XML parsing system that was introduced in this version, hence the issue, which will occur for all users who have similar characters in any of their entries. Deleting the unsupported character fixes the issue, and I'm able to load. It probably is just a case of catching the exception in the parsing process.
  6. I just updated to 11.6. After install, the launch fails due to a corrupt platform .xml (in my case, it was Windows). I will try to use an xml backup hoping that was the only issue, and report back.
  7. Ok so I've been trying the app for a bit now, I'm a little confused by one thing..the "export to android" option was removed some time last year from the desktop app, so how do we transfer the setup from desktop to android?
  8. Nice to see this is still going despite everything. I'm waiting for the email to start testing.
  9. I'm a bit sad that my suggestion on bitbucket wasn't here, but I appreciate the development, I love Launchbox and I think it's in a very nice spot right now.
  10. So no one ever answered to this thread, but I have to bump this really, I really wish there was a way to sort the images. Not just the type, also the images themselves should be sorted based on their name or some other criteria. Right now they are loaded randomly and there is no way to actually keep them in check. There also seems to be a cap in the number of images that are shown, so if you have a game with 200+ images they just don't show up after a while, which is a bummer, I wish at least when viewing them in bigbox that this didn't happen.
  11. Index was outside the bounds of the array.

Used to work until last week.
  12. I like giving my favorite titles a music theme to play when I interact with them, and I often wish I could click on a game and hear the soundtrack while scrolling through the images on the side or Alt+Tabbing to somewhere else on my PC. Sadly, the moment you click anywhere else on the screen, the music pauses. I'd love to have a little toggle or an option to have the music keep playing after I click away, it'd make it so cool to just browse through my collection and hear my favorite soundtracks even if I open up a browser window in the meantime. I have videos for the BigBox setup, so music is kinda the start of my Launchbox collection for when I use it to browse through my games. Edit: at the very least the music should keep playing if we click on pictures from the selected games, so that we could browse through screenshots and fanart with the music in the background..I don't understand how this is not a thing yet!
  13. I'll wait for your PM thanks!
  14. My edit would also be aimed at making the theme more generally useful for people without banners. I have mostly new games in my library, and I don't have a banner for them, so the theme just appears empty and is unusable. Swapping the banner image for a box image and moving the interface a bit would allow most people to use the theme without having to generate tons of art for newer games.
  15. How do I add the whole theme to the Community Team Creator to edit it? I'd like to create a fork that supports ultrawide resolutions and better works with my setup, but I can't load the theme in the theme creator to avoid starting over..
