    Downloading missing art

    What is the scraping source your using? I haven't ran into that issue but I am also pulling media down from EMU movies as well with the lifetime license.
  2. Yeah started to review and weed my collection back. I did have the complete Wii collection (2.06TB) but decided to remove alot of the shovelware leaving it at 697GB. Did a similar thing with my PS2 games.
  3. So I am fairly certain I found it but am running into a new useable video mode error. Did you document the instructions you mentioned in the start of there post?
  4. Curious what result and where you found it. Coming up blank

    BigBox + Steam Link + Wired Xbox 360 ctrl. Help needed

    Just got my steam link yesterday so I haven' tried it yet but I will this weekend. Simple troubleshooting questions to verify. Do you have your controller setup in BigBox and currently works on your PC? Do you have BigBox added to your steam app and verified it launches and that your controller still works on your PC? Once you have verified the other two then it comes down to ensuring that your controller is paired with your steamlink. Also note that you will need to unpair your controller from your pc if it is paired via bluetooth first. Hope that helps. I will let you know my testing results.
  6. My Collection sits close to 23 thousand at this point. However I have some PC titles to add still and might remove some things that I never touch anyway like MSX/MSX2.

    My 4 player arcade pedestal!

    At this point I am at the stage at doing a cabinet design in sketch and reviewing what it will take to build it. Just thinking about the measurements and what possible places I can bring it around the house. Appreciate your help and any insight.

    Migrating to Win10

    Makes sense
  9. So question what is the benefit of using this tool if you already used Dolphin to do its compression/space removal format anyway? Also I have the full Wii set in a wbfs so does that tool help with this? Always interesting in tools that help make the full sets smaller and run just fine. Done it with other tools like converting all dreamcast games from gdi to chd saving 500GB easy.

    MAME Merged Set Collection and preferred ROM launching

    ok cool I will scope that out. If I have to I can take that rom and add it in but change the artwork so it will be known as a 2 player or 4 player game. Maybe a fix in the future possibly? Probably have to read the data of that specific rom to know its a 2 or 4 player.
  11. So I have been trying to figure this out and confirming what might or might not be the best method. Currently I have a merged MAME set imported into my LB/BB setup and works well. The challenge I have is certain games that have multiple version of a game. For example Turtles Arcade has a 4 player World version and a 2 player Euro version. My first question is can you set the preferred ROM to open when selected on the game art or do you have to right click and select the particular rom you want? My second question is the MAME importer put the turtles game in both 4 and 2 player playlists. However the same issue stands unless I can set the preferred ROM player variant for that playlist? Aside from 4 and 2 player games maybe I want to open up a previous version of a fighting like MK2 2.1 vs 3.1. I do have split sets that I could import and set up separately just was trying to avoid that.
  12. How can I get a copy of the game still? Been looking around but no luck so I have to differ to my PS1 copy.

    Which games need to be zipped or unzipped?

    My PS2 games are in a gzip format that is supported as opposed to an ISO. The difference is on first launch of the game it will create a small cached' shortcut in your game directory so it will take a few seconds on first opening. After that the boot up performance is fine after that.

    Managing different builds

    I use freefilesync and set watch folders to keep your folders and files in sync in a mirror or a one way configuration. You can run compares too.

    Migrating to Win10

    Side question. Do you have to maintain the same Drive letter pathing ? Been configuring my setup on one of my machines for my arcade build and once finished, will be porting it to another win10 machine. I currently run a SSD for the OS, an SSD of 500GB or less for LB/BB itself, and a big drive with all the roms. I haven't verified what I want to do with certain windows PC fighting games yet but might do another SSD drive for it. games like SF4/5 cane be 60GB or less.
