  1. Thanks for the link to the other thread. I'll try marking them for deletion again and see if they succeed this time. If not I'll just move on and try to forget they exist
  2. I used your video when I originally set-up Launchbox and I never got around to saying thanks. It made the whole process very simple and I really appreciate it. I'm not sure I'd have bothered adding most of my Amiga collection without it.
  3. Hey there. I've been adding a lot of data to the database recently and since everything was getting accepted, I decided to start helping to moderate the queue myself. A week or so ago I marked two games for deletion as they were duplicates of pre-existing entries. These were quickly accepted 3-0 and marked as approved, but they are still present in the database and still get picked up by Launchbox when searching for metadata. Added games and media seem to appear immediately after being accepted, so is there a wait time on things being deleted or is this some sort of bug? These are the 2 games I marked for deletion: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/124612 https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/156235 And these are the pre-existing entries: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/32890 https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/124620 and here are screenshots showing they were approved:
  4. I'll probably do a little bit of testing with adding and removing regions and seeing what happens, but I'm just glad it's no longer a mystery and that I now have a way to bring down the UK covers without needing to download everything manually one by one. Thanks for the help
  5. Yup, that's it... unfortunately, upon checking, almost all the Spectrum games I own are listed as (Europe) despite the majority of them actually being the UK published versions - which would explain why my other platforms appear to be largely unaffected. I guess that when I originally downloaded the media, UK covers were all that was available, so it brought those down. If I completely remove all region information, would it download all media and allow me to choose after the fact?
  6. I have a problem that I am hoping someone can help me with. I originally installed Launchbox in 2017 and whenever I added a game the media would scrape and it would then use my region priorities to decide which cover to display. I recently decided that my Sinclair ZX Spectrum media was looking a little worn and chose to remove and replace it with better media that is now available in the database. I originally had both the Europe and UK media downloaded with the UK media being prioritized, but no matter what I do now, it will only download the UK media if there is no European version available on the database. As an example, if you take this game https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/29721 You can see that UK media is available, but nothing I do will get that media to download from within Launchbox itself. If I delete all images and redownload it will always bring the European versions only. Any game with European media available will exhibit the exact same behaviour. Does anyone know how I can fix this or make Launchbox only bring the UK versions when multiples are available?
  7. Great work you've been doing here. The old home computers needed a bit of love and attention.
  8. Thanks for those, Seaview59. They're awesome!
  9. Any chance of some kind soul making logos for these:
  10. That's what I was saying, it is ignoring the system settings completely. The default application is set to Acrobat Reader - I've just checked. Having said that, I've just noticed that double clicking on a PDF is making Edge open it too, so it is Windows 10 ignoring the setting not Launchbox itself. I presume this started happening after I got a forced Edge update recently. Thanks for trying to help anyway.
  11. I am not sure when this started - and it may actually always have been the case - but Launchbox is using Microsoft Edge to open any PDF manual despite it not being the default application. Is there any way to get it to use Acrobat Reader or even Firefox instead?
  12. I have reinstalled 9.7 over the current install as suggested by you and Combine Games is now working as intended again. Thanks so much for your help.
  13. Thanks for taking the time to check for me. Given what you've said, I'm going to presume that it's something happening on my end. Do you happen to know if it's possible to reinstall Launchbox without undoing all the work that I've put in so far?
  14. When I first purchased a Launchbox/BigBox license, I imported several full rom sets and have been slowly working through them using the 'Combine Selected Games' menu command to consolidate ROMs of the same game from different regions (that the importer missed) into one entry. Recently this option has stopped working correctly. I get the dialog box stating that it has completed successfully and the second entry for the game is removed from Launchbox, but no additional apps are added to the remaining entry. Instead the ROM is just totally removed from Launchbox and requires re-importing. Is this confined to my system or was it introduced in one of the recent updates?
  15. I had tried deleting the remote folder previously, but had no idea about having to delete the pnach file. I did as you said and now have the Disgaea 2 config fully working. Thanks.
