  1. Ok, thanks for your help! I don't like Kodi, but I would have to think of something ..
  2. @neil9000 My main concern is I am going to launch this PC directly in Big Box and it is not going to be a full blown Windows PC (Launchbox would be the shell). Main goal is for my kids to be able to start the machine and control everything from an XBOX controller. There would be no switching between apps, Launchbox is THE APP. Or maybe I misunderstood your suggestion? Is there Kodi/Launcbox API integration, so that I can setup the movies collection within Kodi but use Launchbox as the front end? If that is the case, then I won't care for Kodi's settings and looks.
  3. @neil9000I've tried Kodi and don't like its default setup. Maybe if I spend days reading and configuring I could make it appealing to my taste, but I just don't have the time and willingness to do that. I was hopping images would not be tied to the name 1:1, as for example I have 9 seasons of Masha and Medved TV series each season 10 series. So I kind of wanted to add single image and all episodes from 9 series could point to it .. or a single image for each season .. this way when tied to the name, I need to copy the same image 90 times and rename it according to the file name. Is there really no other way?
  4. Hi helpful retro gamers, I imported movies into my Launchbox instance following this nice tutorial However the movie scraper plugin does not work (it just does nothing when you select scrape movie). I saw multiple people have reported it no longer works, so at least I know it is not a problem on my end. However I still want to populate my movie collection with Clear logo and FrontEnd box images at least. I was trying to figure out how the relation between game and image works, but alas could not. In the C:\LaunchBox\Data\Platforms\MyMoviePlatform.xml I expected to have the links to the images, but nope. Can someone explain how do I point an entry from Launchbox to show particular image that I've copied over to LaunchBox\Images folder manually? I apologize if there is docs or tutorial for this anywhere (although I doubt it, since Launchbox tries to automate these things). Regards
  5. +1, would be great if some dev could take a look and fix it.
  6. Plugin not working for me, as @xevidroid has stated in March: when I select Scrape Movie nothing happens at all. This is a new machine, so I initially thought that I might be missing some prerequisite, but no prerequisites are listed on the plugins page.
  7. I tried to use the script from this thread along with different versions of 7z.exe and always get the error: Scan WARNINGS for files and folders: Crash Bandicoot - The Wrath of Cortex (USA) (v1.01).iso : The system cannot find the file specified. ---------------- Scan WARNINGS: 1 System ERROR: The parameter is incorrect. Press any key to continue . . . I can confirm there is a single .iso inside the .7z and it has the same name as the archive. What am I missing?
  8. @CDBlue Was that all you added as custom CMD line param? Cause I just tried it and it wouldn't do anything. Does it also require -c for config file or anything else? Edit: confirmed, you also need -c param .. my custom entry looks like so: -L "cores\mame2010_libretro.dll" -c "retroarch.cfg"
  9. It would clutter the platforms, if I create too many such subcategories, but oh well .. P.S. Side question .. is there an option to force assign a single box/cover/front-whatever image to all the files in a subcategory .. i.e. I want the same image for each Game of thrones episode?
  10. The warning in Launchbox warns me explicitly not to do this for such purpose and suggest I use playlists .. hence asking here. If that is really the only way to do this, why does Launchbox say not to do it and offers something else (which is not documented at all)?
  11. For some reason the forum is not letting me create new topic (probably because I just registered, not sure), so I am posting here. I am trying to add subcategories to a Movies category, where I would have serials e.g. "Masha and Medved", "Game of Thrones" etc. (see attachment) For the life of me, I can't figure out how this should be done. I get warned and I understand it shouldn't be a new platform - that is ok. So I try new playlist or new category, but those do not act and look like a container, because they ask for a single file. And I want to add multiple files to them obviously. I tried drag and drop of the files and import them like ROMs and associate them with my Films platform which is already configured to start VLC. Import wizard goes to last step and lists my files like I would expect and then when I continue it says "Imported 0 files" with no errors or warnings. I am pretty sure this has already been done, so I would appreciate if anyone shares their solution. Thanks a lot!
