  3. That being a premium feature was an something that I almost forgot about. There are quite a few quality-of-life enhancements (visual and function) with the paid version. But if what you have works for your needs, you're probably good-to-go. Just one request, once you do add all your systems, don't forget to actually play the games too, Always glad to help. 😎
  4. If you have LaunchBox premium, they'll appear when you restart the program. If you don't have a premium license, I believe they will never show.
  5. Copy those images into the Platforms folder. Then make sure they're the same Name as the actual Platform. i.e. Capcom Play System I.
  6. If indeed the CPS2 games all work directly from within MAME (from their 'new' ROM location)... You most likely have all the paths (to the regular ROMs, CPS1, CPS2, CPS3...) listed in mame.ini's 'rompath' (good job for doing that. ). What's happening is that LaunchBox is overriding mame.ini rompath with [only] the folder that the ROM your launching is actually in, via the Command-line Parameter (-rompath %romlocation%). And you probably don't have "qsound_hle.zip" in with the CPS2 ROMs. IF your rompath is indeed setup as it should be in mame.ini (to include all the different ROM folder locations), you can safely remove the last part of the Command-line Parameters (-rompath %romlocation%). Alternately, you can just copy "qsound_hle.zip" into your CPS2 ROMs folder.
  7. Select the games (tool icons?) you want to have hidden. (The grey ones) Prees Ctrl+E to start the Bulk Edit Wizard On the 2nd screen, select Hide and check the box. Click Next and follow the prompts from there. You may need to set LaunchBox to then hide the games marked hidden. Click View, Hide Games, select Marked Hidden. Yes. It will change it from the free version to the Premium version, opening up many features as well as BigBox and all its glory. All of your existing data (games, images, platforms, playlists etc.) will stay the same.
  8. With that command line, should only need abc80.zip (bios). But the others won't hurt. As long as they're all somewhere within your rompath. I don't know what a "zipped bac format" is. For my Hires Invasion, I have "hiresinv.zip" and inside of it is "hiresinv.dsk". My abc80_flop set is from MAME 0.233, so I don't have "rocket". In fact, for 0.233 there's only 12 ROMs total. Note: There may be more [than 12] ROMs for abc80 available in 0.262 (which would include 'rocket'?). Don't know for sure. Question: Is it worth even setting up? Did you try opening MAME, going into "ABC 80", selecting Hires Invasion and pressing Enter to play it? As in, if you can't run in it MAME, you can't run it through LaunchBox. While in there, click "Available" to make sure MAME can even see the ROM. (If it doesn't show up in the list on the right, MAME can't see it)
  9. This was in my notes from a long time ago. I have it 'checked' that it worked. So it should work. abc80 -autoboot_delay "3" -autoboot_command "run\"%romfile%\"\n" %romfile% (Don't change anything. Just copy/paste the above into the Command-line Parameters for the Associated Platform.)
  10. Check the box "Don't use quotes". Otherwise, you're sending the command demul.exe -run=naomi -rom="hotd2" What want is (as you noted) demul.exe -run=naomi -rom=hotd2
  11. Well, if worse comes to worse, there's always the SNES and NES ports.
  12. The extra command line parameter would be -fullscreen. Which would be the same as setting in the .conf file fullscreen=true. What all settings did you change in your custom conf file to get your aspect ratio perfect? Can you share you conf file? Here's the one I use for The Lion King. dosbox.conf Probably should have asked before.. are you using the built in DOSBox feature of LaunchBox or did you setup a 'new emulator' in LaunchBox and have you DOS games use that emulator? Not trying to "beat a dead horse" here, but you should be able to achieve the best of both worlds. Just needs the proper finessing.
  13. No. You shouldn't. Are you saying when you launch a DOSBox game, it's starting windowed? Is the "Start Fullscreen" checked? Mine goes straight to full screen (after the initial command prompt window). I presume you're using LaunchBox's built-in DOSBox. Maybe something else got buggered in your custom dosbox.conf file. Those 2 highlighted things were the only things I changed (and didn't manually edit the conf file at all). Now, where it says "edit" in my screenshot, it 1st said 'create... something something', then changed to "Edit". What I'm getting at maybe delete your custom conf file and create a new one from scratch. It should start full screen on its own.
  14. I set mine up as shown below and I get the full 1080 and almost the full 1920 (by unchecking 'Aspect Correction'). I don't think you'll ever get the full 16:9 as the game is 320x200 (16:10).
