  1. Due to it being a full set I only downloaded the gameplay images so that is probably why they don't show. How exactly would I change the recent gallery image type as you suggested?
  2. The issue was never missing samples. It was Mario's run sounds on Donkey Kong being slightly off from the original.
  3. I am not sure what is meant by rebuild image cache other than clicking on image cache in the sidebar and refreshing the images. I did this and the recent images are still showing the BigBox equivalent of a red X. Wonder what happened?
  4. Conclusion: For emulation purposes, Pi 4 still doesn't run MAME 3D games and runs many games decently but not all. The super small form factor is awesome but extra ram does nothing for emulation in my opinion and buying a kit, or even a case for that matter, raises the price substantially. Pi 4 runs hotter so a case and/or a fan is necessary. So my recommendation is to buy a Pi 3 with 1, maybe 2 GB of ram, and mount it bare for $25-$35 bucks. Otherwise, I suggest putting something more powerful in its place.
  5. The solution is the Pi was too underpowered for my tastes and the decades old versions of MAME didn't help. I put a PC in my cabinet and the games run like greased lightning. Killer Instinct included
  6. I determined that the Raspberry Pi is underpowered, Retropie/Emulation Station uses antiquated versions of MAME, thus the performance and emulation accuracy are mediocre at best. I put the Pi on a television in my house where it can happily run movies and put a PC in my arcade cabinet where it happily runs a newer version of MAME and any currently working rom or CHD.
  7. Indeed, attract mode is enabled. I thought it was something it wasn't. And thank you for the other suggestions Lordmonkus.
  8. I have BigBox in a cabinet and it is so awesome. I had a few questions that hopefully can be answered by the community: - After being idle for a few minutes, BigBox starts autoscrolling in the games list or randomly selecting itself to leave the menu. I couldn't find any option for Z axis autoscrolling anywhere in the options. Select all controllers is off. It is an arcade cabinet so nothing is lying on a controller, keyboard, etc. - I only have one console, Arcade, but the console wheel shows Arcade repeated over and over again. My other desktop has many consoles so I wonder if somehow my registration code causes my arcade cabinet installation to think it has many systems too. - Recent game images are not showing. They stay blank. Any advice would be appreciated.
  9. I had this same error and the fix was to run Windows update and download all critical updates if you're .net Framework was up to 4.8.
  10. Arcade1Up has made slight improvements to each generation of machines. SF2 is older than the MKII and even the newer MKII's and recently released cabinets have upgraded monitors that are more vibrant. So before getting too involved into the other mechanics and settings, look on the back of each LCD and make sure the model numbers match. If they are different, one is an upgraded monitor with more vibrant colors.
  11. I was all excited to put a coin door in my cabinets until I saw what X-Gaming, Tulsa Arcade, etc charge for shipping. Twenty bucks to ship a coin door? C'mon. Amazon shows nothing with Prime, only 3rd party with high shipping prices. I would be interested to know some of your recommendations for arcade parts where shipping is free or reasonable. Surely not everyone with a coin door paid $20 to have it shipped. Or did they?
  12. I went to Windows Update again and it showed the large amount of updates; 112 to be exact. So this is the second confirmation that updating Windows is the key to resolving this issue with Windows 7. Download .net Framework version 4.8, update Windows, and Launchbox runs! Thank you all who contributed to this post.
  13. I have the same problem. Installed Win7 for an arcade cabinet. Launchbox started installing and crashes any time it tries to open with CLR20r3 and a bunch of other events. .Net Framework 4.8 installed, repaired, Directx 11, and no antivirus installed as it will run MAME only. Windows Update has no updates for me. So I'm at a loss here.
  14. I agree. ETA's recommendation for the Sanwa style LED kit may have been solid at the time as he does things very early, but now it is not the best option. Spend $40 for the cheap Sanwa kit or spend $45 for a genuine HAPP set from Tornado Terry's. I had two coin buttons on the lower angled panel, but these will be reallocated to UI Select and UI Cancel buttons once I put a coin door in. Lots of creative modders out there. I had no idea you could order a usb port that drops into a button hole. No more opening up the back to plug in spare keyboard/mouse every time I need to do something. But for me a Rii mini keyboard will be the best option.
