  1. Ok, I looked in the xml files, but I didn't see those lines in your original or the ones I changed. But figured out all I had to do was select all, right click, select refresh selected images.
  2. Hey, hopefully a quick thing. I'm merging this with my current collection, and I've followed the directions I found here. However I need to leave the C64 Dreams folder on another drive for space reasons. To accommodate this, I've edited the platform xml files for the correct path, and so far games and magazines launch just fine. The issue I'm having is that the images aren't showing up in my Launchbox. I copied over the image folders as instructed. Do you know what else I need to change?
  3. Awesome theme! Would you be open to requests for your to-do lists? If so, I'd like to request these: Categories: Developers, Genres, Magazines, Hacks, and Years. For Years, I imagine the Years category, then playlists under that for 1970's, 1980's, etc... Platforms: PSP Mini, GCE Vectrix, Sega Pico, Atari ST, ScumVM, Windows 3x
  4. Awesome set!! I'm working on implementing these now. I see that you have Clear Logos for Collection but no .mp4, unless Playlists goes with this one? I wonder if you'd be open to a request for additional Categories? If so, I'd like to request these: Developers, Genres, Magazines, Hacks, and Years. For Years, I imagine the Years category, then playlists under that for 1970's, 1980's, etc...
  5. Hey All I was searching for an automated way to keep all my emulators up to date. Auto update is annoying when you launch a game, and manually updating things is also annoying. I'm not great at scripting, so I started looking for something that can record clicks to get the general gist of what I want. I found a tool called AutoIT. It has a mouse recorder and programming language to go with it. Made quick work out of automating things like RPCS3, Dolphin, and Citra. However I'm running into a mental block when it comes to things like PCSX2 which require a manual download. On top of this, I can't record with a mouse because the placement of the link is always different. Also it's hard to use the "inetget" function because the name of the file is randomly different every time. example: https://buildbot.orphis.net/pcsx2/index.php?m=dl&rev=v1.7.0-dev-653-g378eccc6e&platform=windows-x86. Has anyone tackled this idea? Anyone experienced with this tool that could help me get this worked out? Before you say to use their forum, I did, and found that they only responded that they don't support "automating games". Thanks all!
  6. Hey great plugin! Can't wait for your successor. Just wanted to ask, after using it to download the settings, how can I be sure that the custom settings files are even being used when I open the game out of Launchbox? Do I need to reference these files somehow? Thanks!
  7. That is true. I think we can circumvent some of these concerns. For instance, naming can be remedied by just have a standard name that is used, then giving an option within a Launchbox Playlist editor to give a preferred name, or custom art. Just a thought. Thank you for your replies.
  8. Hey, hopefully I'm not suggesting something that already exists. Looking at the Games Database as a simple one stop shop to organize and grab media, I think Playlists should be the same way. I've created loads of Playlists, and just end up hoping that the wording I used might match something when I use the "Download Platform/Playlist Theme Videos" tool. It'd be nice if there was a way to standardize Playlists, so that I can select the Playlist, and then grab the clear logos/art/video files I want. It doesn't even have to auto add games to it, though that'd be awesome, I can do that manually myself. I imagine with something like this, it could be expanded for theme creators in BigBox to facilitate additional art for their themes. Thanks!
  9. Hello, Curious if anyone knew how to grab the NoIntro information in csv file format for each system? I used to be able to do this easily, but it's been a while and I can't find it anymore at https://datomatic.no-intro.org/ Thanks!
  10. Want to thank you for all the work you're doing. Have you thought of touching base with the eXoDOS guys to see if they could spare time to help? Extra people to help you gather, and custom software that might be adapted to helping you setup your catalog. I know they are probably swamped, but never hurts to ask.
  11. Ok, I got a few working. I initially started messing with Arcana Heart 3. When I use the included xb-monitor loader, it changes the resolution of my screen, but then just shows my desktop in that resolution. Thinking that maybe this was because of my newer versions of Windows 10, I took a look, and it looks like this loader hasn't been updated since 2017: https://github.com/zxmarcos/xb_monitor. I did find someone updating it here: https://github.com/Hipnosis183/xb-monitor, but I couldn't get that to work at all, just got an error. I know that the game works, because if I use Game Loader All RH, it loads. So I think I'm running into maybe 2 scenarios: 1: Windows 10 has made these older versions of the Loader malfunction 2: My copy of the game is slightly messed up. Even though the TypeXtra MD5 shows it checks out. So now I'm reading up about teknoparrot, typex_loader, and others. There is a page that sort of describes all of these (http://www.emuline.org/topic/1459-tuto-teknoparrot-budgieloader-gameloader-all-rh-explanation-and-how-to-install-and-such-things/), great place to glean some technical info, but doesn't really answer the questions the uninitiated would have. What I mean by that is things like "what should vanilla files look like, how to tell if I have vanilla, what do I need to make it work, what does what, why do I need it, what are my options, which is best, etc..". Most videos I've found are the "let me hold your hand, not explain, and heaven help you if things behave differently for you" variety. I'm not complaining, just sharing my observations. It now comes down to parsing through the games that TypeXtra does work with, and the ones that it doesn't. I'm hoping I can figure out what I'm doing wrong, but if not, I'll post what I've done to make them work. Then I'd like to find the HD .exe files. Then hopefully wrap it up and add it to Launchbox. If there is interest in this, I'll try to post my progress.
  12. I've been bothering stigzler too much, hoping the community can help me out. I'm having loads of trouble getting these games to load. Right now games open, and then close. I noticed MS Defender showing that this file "Game Loader Config.exe" is a virus: "Trojan:Win32/Occamy.C"? To be expected? False positive? HOLY CRAP GET RID OF IT!!?
  13. Thank you both for responding. And yeah, I ran into the game loader issue too. Always leaves you feeling like you're gambling. I'll have to add all this as an exception in Defender. stigzler, I ran into the browser issue, but this was coming up in Defender. I downloaded your app here: http://www.emucr.com/2018/06/typextra-v1014.html using the only link that works, 7-ZippyShare. Here's what it found: Occamy.C --> RFIDGod_inject.exe Is that the file you were talking about, or did someone modify your distro? Can you update your download link? All official download links that I've found from you no longer work. Have to say it's awesome to be able to talk to the author. This has been a system that I've been trying to get to work for a long time. You still making updates to this?
  14. Hey twobucks, can you help me out in getting this to function? When I download Typextra, antivirus goes APE and quarantines it. What do you know? Is it a real virus or isn't it? Am I just getting a bad copy? Thanks!
  15. I like the Retroarch Citra core because they allow you to use your controllers joystick to manipulate the touch screen. As I'm setting this up though, I'm stuck trying to figure out how to install game updates and DLC's for it. Has anyone done this before? Thanks!
  16. Are you taking requests? If so, any chance to do any of the following? .Hack Bloody Roar Valkyria Chronicles Valkyrie Profile Super Smash Bros Thanks!
  17. AHAH!!!! That was the missing sauce! I didn't know about that. Thank you!
  18. I was forwarded over here. I don't wish to usurp the conversation, but hopefully this is a quick problem. ****** So I used the Bezel Project Installer v1.5 to download a bunch of Bezels for use in RetroArch. Well I noticed that many of the files didn't match up with my ROMs naming convention. Markings like (Alt 1) and such. So I tried renaming things. I renamed the .cfg and .png files to the same name as my ROM. I then went into the .cfg file and made sure to correct the name of the .png file it needed to use. When I launch the game...nothing. If I do the opposite and rename the ROM, it works just fine. What am I missing? Does Retroarch use a database file somewhere that references the .cfg files or something? Example: Sonic Spinball (USA) (Alt 1).cfg overlays = 1 overlay0_overlay = ":/overlays/GameBezels/Megadrive/Sonic Spinball (USA) (Alt 1).png" overlay0_full_screen = true overlay0_descs = 0

    Hopefully the right section for this. So I used the Bezel Project Installer v1.5 to download a bunch of Bezels for use in RetroArch.

  21. OK, finally had time to come back to this. This didn't seem the fix the focus issue. I exit any Gamecube/Dolphin game, and it doesn't return focus to BigBox. I'll keep searching google, but if you have any other ideas...
  22. I'm sorry for not understanding, but how do I make sure this is scripted to run on exit? I'm having a lot of trouble with this too. Especially with GameCube Dolphin games. I've copied the DLL to the plugins folder. I've copied the AHK into the AutoHotKey folder. I guess I'm not supposed to do anything with the Source folder? Thanks
  23. Coming back around to this. For several reasons, I've decided that the DS4 controller is better. Thanks for turning me onto the idea. - Bluetooth dongle is smaller for the Shield, making for less things to move around with it - Motion controls for the CEMU However, I'm running into a lot of issues with synchronization. Using the program you mentioned, Virtual Here, I'm eventually able to add the DS4 as a new device. However in order to get it to work the next day, I have to re-add it again to get it to show up in the DS4Windows app. Sometimes I have to reboot to get the Player 1 slot. Seems like a lot of the same issues I had with the Xbox controller. Is it seamless for you, or do you just live with some of these same issues? Do you think it might be down to the make/model of the Bluetooth dongle you're using?
  24. So I finally did some more trouble shooting. What I figured out was that I needed to get the virtual here software connected up between the PC and the shield first. Then stream to the shield. Works just fine then. So happy to get this going. I'm now working in the Wii controller. Got it working sometimes. Connecting Bluetooth devices is always annoying. Anyways, I just wanted to update the thread so someone else could benefit, and to thank you for your help!
  25. Hey eXo, Sorry, I just found your Discord @ https://discordapp.com/channels/454359114601201666/454373903146680333 so saw your latest updates. last update here I saw on the release date of eXoDOS was September, any updates on when v4 is coming out? As well on win3xo? Thank you for all the effort you and others have put into this.
