16-Bit Artificial Intelligence

16-Bit Artificial Intelligence (4/7)



  1. Not sure if this has ever happened to anyone else but... After booting up launchbox today from an unassigned disk on my unraid server I noticed it wouldn't boot. then I checked within the launchbox folder and noticed everything had disappeared (All files and most of the folders (over 1tb of data)). I didn't manually delete them and nothing outside of the launchbox folder is missing, so I figured it might be due to a recent update or bug. Luckily I have Launchbox backed up, but figured I'd throw it out there to see if anyone's seen anything like this before. Only other thing I cant think of doing differently was during scraping for new videos/images a few nights ago I checked the box to delete duplicate/similar images that already exist, but its weird that would delete all the files.🤷‍♂️ any ideas?
  2. Thank you for testing, but yeah I have the download metadata box checked, am up to date on newest version of LB, and have an active premium subscription. Seems like it's only targeting certain people, and it wasn't something that always happened. Started sometime during version 11 and has continued happening up through the newest version. Only thing I haven't tried yet is deleting windows and starting fresh to see if its something in my windows build.
  3. I'm not trying to spam, I'm trying to reply to multiple peoples posts who've made the same post as I've made in the past, hoping someone has found an answer to this aside from just using emusync. I've made my own posts multiple times with no replies to this issue, so either not many people are experiencing this issue or its just not a main concern of the devs, but people are posting over on the emumovies site about the issue also, but they all just switched to emusync and gave up. Be nice to just see the issue resolved, and I'm willing to help with whatever the devs need weather it be testing or log files.
  4. Same problem, been trying to fix it for months but no luck so far. Tried everything I could think of so far with no luck.😓🤦‍♂️
  5. I'm having the same problem as you guys. Its been happening on version 11 as well as 12. Downloading media for a single game it can find the video snaps and download them, but when downloading in bulk it will download very few of them if any any videos at all. Most the time in bulk it just does nothing when it gets time for it down download the videos and the downloader exists as if it finished.

  7. I have problems getting the bulk downloader in launchbox to download from emumovies as well. Sometimes it downloads some but not all images/vids and sometimes it just quits after searching as if nothing was found when I know theres Tons of media to download. Hopfully the problem gets corrected eventually
  8. using ver. 11.17 the same problem is still present that I had before where movies being scraped from emumovies in bulk amounts will not download anything (When it does manage to download it still misses a bunch of the games videos for some reason). it will search and then just stop and download nothing after searching. downloading from the launchbox servers works perfectly, its just something with emumovies. is this happening to anyone else? Did even more testing and thought it might just be because the platform was named something like Commodore 64 (Single Disc Games) instead of just Commodore 64, but that wasnt it. I can bulk download from emumovies for platform Nintendo 3DS, but not for Commodore 64 (Single Disc Games), So I renamed Commodore 64 (Single Disc Games) to just Commodore 64. Then i moved Commodore 64 out of the platform categories it was under just to be even safer and it still wouldn't download from emumovies in bulk. So Some systems work and some just wont I dont get it.
  9. No matter how many ways I've tried I just cant get launchbox to download media from emumovies when trying with large amounts of roms at one time. It just searches then says it's done without downloading anything. If I do smaller amounts of roms at a time it works fine. It's been doing this for a while so not sure if everyone's having this problem or just me. Try 1000+ roms at once just to be safe and see if it works kuz mine wont.
  10. Usually if a rom only has a (USA, europe) version I just add it to the USA games. In the case where I already have a seperate (USA) version and then also have a (usa, europe) version I would add the (usa, europe) version to the European games. Not perfect without duplicating but it's what I did.?‍♂️
  11. I agree this would be cool to see implemented as an option for greater immersion. ?
  12. I'd be down to pay for a plugin especially if it required routine updates and served a beneficial purpose not included in launchbox, such as... 1. youtube downloading (current plugin no longer works or is updated), 2, Automatic labeling of disc 1, disc 2 etc for multi disc games to be kept as separate entries in the library 3, movie scraper and trailer downloader, Anyway that's just to name a few. I'm always down for anything that encourages more people to enhance LB and make it more user friendly. Also be nice to see something built into LB where you could update the games database thus encouraging all users to contribute, kuz the current plugin bugs up and isnt updated.
  13. Yeah the import process can be a pain. Doesn't take me 24 hours, but it does take hours sometimes. The finalization process takes a really long time also. Not sure if your pc is slowing you down but your internet is good, so if your importing thousands of games like commodore 64 then 10+ hours is definitely possible.
  14. Importing is slow but no where near that long for a single game even with it being a new platform. Maybe a few minutes tops. If it's an entire system with hundreds of games or even thousands then it could take hours possibly, but 24 hours sounds excessive.
  15. Recently when trying to use the artwork downloader it wont download anything from emumovies unless I only use the downloader for just a few games at a time. Not sure how long it's been acting that way but seems to have started recently. Not sure if its everyone or just me. Also I saw that emumovies had been down but I dont think this is related to that because its happening today and that problem with their server has been fixed. Plus it only happens when doing larger groups of games at 1 time, and sometimes on smaller groups
