  1. Thank you that should work. I figured I might be able to go that route. I just wanted to see if they had a web api for the Launchbox Database that would return Json or XMl. I found this site for the Launchbox DB https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/ and you can search and return game info from it, I just wondered if there was a way to get the information programmatically. Thank you for your response.
  2. I have a paid version of LaunchBox. I love the software and appreciate all the hard work the devs put in. I'm kind of OCD when it comes to making lists. I like to keep a list of all the games I've beat, when I completed them, publisher, release date etc. so basically my own db, but a poor mans version in a google spreadsheet. I'm a database developer, and I thought it would be fun as a side project and learning opportunity to build a website using a MySql db as the backend to showcase my digital collection. I know this is basically what Launchbox does, but I just wanted to try building my own web version for fun. I realize I could just go through my list and painstakingly fill out all of the game info and build my own database, but it looks like Launchbox already has a great one available for its users. I was wondering if there is any way for me to tap into this DB using some kind of API so that I could take advantage of the information that is already out there?
  3. Much appreciated, that worked perfectly! Is there somewhere I can find documentation about the various settings and options for LaunchBox/BigBox and what they do, or is it mainly just the forums and tutorial videos on youtube? Thanks again for the help.
  4. Hello, I've purchased a premium license but I'm interested in getting my video snaps to play in Launchbox premium not Big Box (I know they play in Big Box but I'm trying to troubleshoot some slowness in the UI). The platform I am working with is NES. I have the video in \LaunchBox\Videos\Nintendo Entertainment System and it is named the same as my Rom in the Games folder. Under Tools I have selected 'Autoplay Videos'. In the game I am testing it shows a path to the video file and it points to the correct file. I have the game details sidebar visible, but still I see no video snap. What am I missing here?
