  1. Yea. I haven’t had a chance to tweak that yet. I’ve been too stuck on getting my setup to transition from game to bigbox and back to game with proper controller mappings etc while not losing focus and control so user needs to grab a keyboard or mouse. It’s been a challenge to say the least. I finally caved and set a hot key for alt+tab using xpadder as a fallback in case focus from bigbox gets lost.
  2. Ah indeed. Definitely a task keeping things simple for the guests. I haven’t messed with it yet but I think LaunchBox supports the Xbox guide button now for single press pause menu invocation no?
  3. This is very similar to the behavior I experience with retroarch and bigbox. And ya it is a bummer cause I’d like to use the LB pause screen but I may have to disable and use retroarch hotkeys. im using a Intel NUC NUC6i7KYK. 8Gb ram and 120GB ssd. Running LaunchBox on external 2tb mechanical hard drive. what rig are you running on?
  4. i have this focus issue with RetroArch. Alt+tab won't bring the pause screen to the foreground though. The pause screen shows on top in focus the first time its triggered but then after that, it shows up in the background and can't be pulled into focus. but its still able to be interacted with. This only occurs with BigBox... LaunchBox doesn't seem to have the issue and the pause screen always shows on top in focus. RetroArch is the only emulator that seems to have this issue as well. Is there a solution to this? @Jason Carr I really don't want to have to disable pause screens for retroarch as thats the emulator i use for the majority of my platforms and i really like the save/load state and pause functionality when it works... Mame handles it like a dream and its awesome to pause arcade games that can't normally be paused, save state and load back up again later.
  5. I tried switching to Unified Redux, but still crashes after some hours of running attract mode. @Jason Carr when you ran your 48 hour tests were your running attract mode with videos for 13000+ games? me thinks there’s a memory leak after it plays so many video files... all my games have video snaps... 13,000+ of em
  6. Well scratch autohotkey and xpadder off the list of causes... I let BigBox.exe run solo in attract mode for a bit longer than 6 hours and eventually it crashes with the error from my original post. But I’ve tested a couple more times and it’s crashed in 2-4 hours also. So the time it takes seems to be random
  7. well i've been running BigBox now for about 4+ hours and no crashes yet. Usually it would have crashed multiple times (after restarts) by now. The change? I had some autohotkey scripts and xpadder.exe running in the background on boot... i disabled those and just ran BigBox.exe only. one of the autohotkey scripts is used to launch xpadder and bigbox at boot... the other is for some custom controller monitoring to be able to use either the wireless xbox controller or the built-in bartop joystick controls as the first player (toggles the bartop xinmo joysticks enabled/disabled using devcon.exe). i'm not sure which autohotkey script is the issue, or if bigbox doesn't like xpadder running in background? what are you guys using to launch bigbox and other exe's at computer bootup in a silent, clean, hidden manner?
  8. thanks, I'll try sleuthing this week and post back...
  9. I got latest windows updates and it even had an intel graphics driver update And did that too but it’s still crashing the same way.
  10. haven't tried other themes. i've been using this viking colorful theme for a while now (and letting it sit idle on attract mode for many hours) and its worked great up until LaunchBox 10.7 ... now crashes after extended periods of idle.
  11. I think it’s set to VLC... should I try swapping ?
  12. It seems to be crashing every couple hours now... this seems to have started since the last 10.7 update... @Jason Carr any other recent reports like this? Only other thing I can thing of is windows updates... I’m on latest windows 10 1909
  13. I just had BigBox.exe crash on me while it was running for a couple hours just sitting idle going through its random attract mode switching through games and having the videos play. I've had it I've had it do this much longer without issues before. I'm on the latest version of launchbox 10.7... Here is the event log error... Faulting application name: BigBox.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5dd429b2 Faulting module name: ntdll.dll, version: 10.0.18362.418, time stamp: 0x99ca0526 Exception code: 0xc0000374 Fault offset: 0x00000000000f9269 Faulting process id: 0x1c08 Faulting application start time: 0x01d5a46e85993ab6 Faulting application path: H:\Arcade\LaunchBox\BigBox.exe Faulting module path: C:\WINDOWS\SYSTEM32\ntdll.dll Report Id: a61fdc1c-b95d-4916-bb93-a9f2f74567bf Faulting package full name: Faulting package-relative application ID: any ideas?
  14. yea, i am using built-in mame ui cancel, but i also have some xpadder stuff going on during launch/exit... i just didn't include in my examples for simplicity. thanks for the help!
