  1. Ok thank you. I will look into that!
  2. That's a real bummer. I'll have to see if I can find the time to write a plug-in.
  3. Hi. I have many Windows games in my hdd that are not installed (from got, and isos). I don't want to install them, but I'd like them to be visible in launchbox, from where I would launch the installation file if I wanted to play it. Each game is in a separate folder. Is there any way to do this without spending the entire summer adding individual shortcuts?
  4. Thank you. I can't find that setting in the importer. In which importer? In the scan for new roms function, there is no setting like that right? It would be nice if there was a way to mark a certain file to be ignored at next checks for new roms.
  5. Hello. Everytime I scan for new games, Launchbox inevitably adds again the BIOS files for all systems. Some of the files I have to have in the same folder as the roms, because emulators are stupid. Others are in a subfolder like Games\Sega Dreamcast\Bios\awbios However, even these are also added. Is there any way to mark games not to be added, or to exclude subfolders when scaning?
  6. If this scraper didn't work for you before, I suggest you try again with the latest version. I fixed some serious bugs that prevented the program from working in certain computers. All should be good now.
  7. Starplayer's Local Scraper for Launchbox View File This program is a scraper for your video files, to be used with launchbox. ------------What it does:------------ Imagine you have in your possesison a full collection of video snaps and theme videos for launchbox. Now, you might just have them all in your launchbox\videos\ folder, and everything will work. However, you might prefer to have only some games that you like in your launchbox installation, in a faster SSD, or you might have a Raspberry Pi, which has limited space. In those cases, you will want to only get the videos that correspond to the games you have in launchbox. This program does that automatically for you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------How do you use this program then??------------ Glad you ask! -1: set the path of your launchbox installation. Usually C:\program Files\Launchbox for example -2: set the path of the folder in which you have your full video collection. For example D:\Launchbox Videos\ -3: Check the checkboxes "Run for videos snaps" and "Run for Themes" depending on if you want to get game snaps, theme videos, or both -4: Press Run ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------Things to have in consideration:------------ You have to have your video folders with the same name of the folders in the launchbox directory. ie, if a folder is called "sega saturn" in launchbox, the correspondent in the folder that containsall your videos can't be called only "saturn". The blue button "Correct Names of video folders attempts to solve this, but you should check. If you want, you can run the program for just one game platform. To do that, check "Run for One Platform Only", press "Get Platforms" and select the platform you want to run for. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------"Other Options" explanation:------------ --"Ignore platform if no original videos are present" - check this if you don't want to be reminded thatthe program didn't found any videos for a specific platform. --"Rename original videos": check this if you also want the original videos in your video collection to bepermanently renamed to the name that launchbox is expecting for each game. Any suggestions, you can find me on Launchbox's forum. You're welcome. Be happy. Starplayer Submitter starplayer Submitted 12/16/2018 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins

  9. Starplayer's Local Scraper for Launchbox https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/1606-starplayers-local-scraper-for-launchbox/ Let's you scrape your own video collection, and puts only the needed ones in your launchbox videos folder. Great if you want to save space on your Launchbox drive. Currently only videos are supported, no themes still, and no other media. I'm open to suggestions and bug reports. Enjoy.

  10. So this is dead? I can't get it to launch no matter what... EDIT: Forget it. People, watch out, when the app launches, it launches a window behind all other windows. So you have to minimize everything to get out of the way. I was thinking it was not launching but it was just hidden behind all my 30 opened windows.
  11. There is a bad translated button in tools, as explained here: Where it says "Salvar Imagem como..." Should be: "Escanear ROMs Adicionadas"
  12. Never mind. The translation to portuguese is not correct. Where it says "Salvar Imagem como..." Should be: "Escanear ROMs Adicionadas"
  13. Hello. I've seen this option should exist. However, it doesn't show in my installation. I'm using Launchbox Premium btw.
