  1. I have a game in my launchbox called HOME, which is a free indie game released on Steam this year. I submitted it to the database back on the 4th of July, where it was promptly accepted later that day.


    Usually after this happens it'll be a couple of days before it appears in Launchbox when searching for metadata. It's been over two weeks now and it's still not appearing. The only "Home" that appears is a horror game from 2012. Other games I submitted at around about the same time appear in launchbox perfectly fine, so i'm confused as to why launchbox can't find the metadata for this one.

  2. Malwarebytes deleted it from quarantine as soon as I opened up the main window to see what file was quarantined. I do wonder if maybe the "Add Games to DB" plugin might've set it off, as it works by automating Chrome into doing a bunch of stuff, and maybe I did it too many times in the space of one hour and Malwarebytes thought it was suspicious?

    According to Malwarebytes, it was a "Malware.Ransom.Agent.Generic".

    The only other thing I can say is that at the exact moment it happened, I had right clicked on Autumn Park Mini Golf in Launchbox and clicked on the Steam scraper to make sure it's info was up to date before adding it to the database. Again, i've used the Steam scraper for a while now and had used it multiple times tonight with no issue.

  3. So I was using the latest beta build of Launchbox which just came out, and was uploading a bunch of games to the database using the "Add Games to DB" plugin combined with the Steam Scraper plugin (both of which i've used for a while now). Uploaded about five or six games over an hour with no issue, when suddenly Launchbox crashed and Malwarebytes claimed it had automatically quarantined ransomware. After restarting my PC to finish the deletion process, turns out the file in question was Launchbox.exe, which is now gone. So yeah, for some reason Malwarebytes thought that Launchbox was ransomware.

    Has anyone else had any experiences like this, particularly with the latest beta? I did nothing differently than usual, so i'm really confused as to what cause Malwarebytes to suddenly flip out at Launchbox.

  4. Hi, I heard that you could replace the version of DOSBox included with Launchbox with a different version supporting long filenames (LFN). I've copy-pasted the files from the LFN version over to Launchbox's DOSBox folder and tried loading a DOS game within Launchbox. However, i'm still getting that error message about "limitation(s) with DOSBox's command line usage" due to an apostrophe being in the filepath (it's one of my top-level folders, so changing the name of the folder isn't possible without screwing up a lot of other programs).

    Is there any way to disable this error message and force Launchbox to load the game in DOSBox LFN?

    PS: For the record, i've tried using Retroarch as a replacement, simply running the games as "roms". This works fine for some games, like Tyrian 2000, but it doesn't work for any games that require additional files/discs to be mounted, like Ultimate Body Blows.
