  1. v1.02 is out. That should resolve any issues 'I created' when trying to 'fix' things with v1.01.
  2. Well, I did say "If all goes well..." and it sounds like it did. That error is saying the change was already made (in not so few words). lol Glad it appears to be working for ya!
  3. Launch Platforms View File This is a BigBox plugin that allows you to launch a game/application directly from the Platform Wheel View level. Setup: - Right click on the downloaded LaunchPlatform.zip and click "Unblock" and then OK - Open the zip file and copy the folder "LaunchPlatform into your ../LaunchBox/Plugins/ folder - Open LaunchBox and create a new Platform. (i.e. Music Box Alpha) - In the lower right hand corner click "Add" - Fill in (at minimum) Title: Platform: (select the Platform you just created) (click on "Launching") Application Path: - Click OK - Now click "Tools" and [at the bottom] click "Launch Platform Setup" - Oh... you might first want to create a backup of the Theme folder you use for BigBox. You shouldn't need it, but always a good idea. - Step 1 In the Available Themes List will be all themes you have. Click on the one you use (the one you backed up) then click "Setup Theme". This will now be listed in the Modified Themes List. At any time you can undo the changes made by selecting the Theme in the Modified Themes List and click "Restore Theme". - Step 2 Select the Platform (Music Box Alpha) in the Available Platforms List and click "Add Platform" (or you can just double-click it). This will move it to the Platforms Ready List. When you are done, click "Done". - Now start BigBox. (look for the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left, click it and click "BigBox") - Scroll through your Platforms wheel until you find your new Platform and select it. If all goes well, this will directly launch your program (Music Box Alpha) without going into the games wheel. And if things really go well, when your system is in Attract Mode, it may stop on this Platform, but then move on to the next Platform without trying to go to the games wheel. @jayjay is the brains behind getting this to work, but I'm the one that threw it all together. So credit goes to where credit is due. (you decide ) If something's not working right, go ahead and post here and it'll get looked at. And possibly even get resolved.

  5. Chiming in... BitBucket is your absolute best place for feature requests (such as this).
  6. That's just plain odd. Well, that and the fact Alt+Tabbing to MAME doesn't work. I don't know with which MAME release it changed, but check under Manage Emulators - MAME and see if LB-11 added-in/removed the custom command line "-keyboardprovider dinput". "added-in" vs "removed" depending if 0.206 is 'OK with it'. Next process-of-elimination I'd suggest is to install version 10 of LaunchBox (from inside the ../Updates/ folder) and see if it truly is a LB-11 thing. Though I suspect that it is Not.
  7. Sounds like the MAME window isn't getting focus after being launched. Launch a game from LB, if the controls aren't working, instead of Ctrl+Alt+Del, hold Alt and then press Tab. Still holding Alt down, press Tab until you get to the MAME window, then let go of Alt. Do the controls now work? If so, Exit MAME (Esc) and try a different Arcade game and see if it works without having to do all that. Do you have MAME set to Window Mode? Start Out Maximized (not sure if this one matters)?
  8. Sounds like you're using the Supermodel UI. The solution is to set-it-and-forget-it. And since you're using LaunchBox, you won't need the Supermodel ui. Get things setup through the ui so that everything works. Then don't ever run it again. Now make a backup (or two) of "Supermodel.ini" for future just-in-case. If you feel the need to change the resolution, edit the ini file with a text editor and search for XResolution = 1920 YResolution = 1080 and change the numbers to your liking. If later you need to make changes to the controller settings, use the command line option (as is Strongly recommended by the SuperModel3 team). [-config-inputs] The ui will make changes [to the ini] the instant you click something. No questions asked. Though I don't know why simply changing the resolution would screw the controllers up. Anyway, ditch the ui and let LaunchBox 'be your guide'.
  9. Welcome to the forums. There's a bit going on in this thread, but when you get towards the end, I think you'll find what you're looking for.
  10. Sounds like maybe LB/BB wasn't shut down properly. Simplest remedy is go to the Updates folder under LaunchBox and (re)run "LaunchBox-11.0-Setup.exe". They say all your game imports (etc) data will not be lost. But if you're concerned, make a backup of the Data folder first.
  11. To be honest, I have never used the search feature in BB and didn't know about the "game wheel" (whatever, depending on your Theme view) it creates with the results. That is pretty Cool! I see also that if you go to the System View (press "Back") and select View Genres, select a specific Genre and then Search, it works as above. For the selected genre and search term. So to continue with your proof of concept, if you can use voice control to activate Search, "key-in" a search term/word(s) and "press Enter", you're well on your way. Next step is to create a User Control that has a textBox to input your search term (hmm.... I think there's a better word than "term"... anyway) and then a groupBox of groupBox(s) with radioButtons for Genre, Series, Ratings etc... (because you can only FilterType by one.. unless you can get && to work)..... Well, you probably know all that. The issue goes back to outputting the result into a 'filtered' [WheelGames]View. Damn! I was on a roll. lol But in the back of my mind, I'm convinced this can be done via a plugin with the resources available. Comes down to being smarter than the average bear by studying/earning the inner workings of C#/WPF/xaml's. And I'm sure it's right there just starring at us. My little cub eyes don't see it yet.😊
  12. Maybe "popup" was a bad choice of words. But my Plan B 'method' isn't really all that bad to do. As for the Search feature, be it a built-in BB User Control or one from a plugin, there really isn't much difference. Well, other than you'd be responsible for any 'adverse affects' rather than Jason. The keyboard's already available ... ../Themes/Default/KeyboardView.xaml. Just have to plug[-it-]in. Myself, I hate working with WPF (attribute it to just plain ignorance). Modifying's fine. Creating from scratch.... Ugh!! Give me a good ol' Windows Form "popup" any day. lol
  13. That details screen for the emulator looks fine. Make sure you Game is pointing to a (correct) rom file. Best to use the Browse button rather than manually typing it in. The only way I was able to replicate that particular error was when I pointed it to a file not recognized by Citra. If it still doesn't load after verifying that, see if you can load it from the command prompt. Open the command prompt from your 'nightly-mingw' folder and type citra-qt.exe "D:\roms\Nintendo 3DS\Mario Kart 7-USA-Rev 1-Decrypted.3ds" (adjusting the folder/file_names accordingly and don't forget the quotes).
