  1. I tried that hoxs64 and it seemed ok at first until I learned it didn't boot a lot of the games I like such as Creatures 1 and 2, Mayhem In Monsterland, and lots of others. Also D64 games that do work take ages to load. I will have a try of the new Vice 64. Can you have the settings for Vice in the emulator folder instead of appdata? That's one other thing that irked me about Vice.
  2. Hi, I have been using VICE 64 to run my C64 games and while some work fine, others crash or if a game has a trainer intro (which a lot of C64 games do), it hangs after it. Not only that but the settings keep changing for some reason. Sometimes the framelimiter turns off and the game runs ultra fast, just at random. Even when you save the settings, random things will turn on and off, like sound, true drive emulation among others. What I would like to know, is there a concrete way of running C64 games on windows that is reliable and just works? It's crazy how I have Amiga games running through launchbox perfectly and the C64 I can't for the life of me get it to be stable. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you.
  3. I use VICE x64 for C64 emulation and for the most part it works fine. However I have a problem with some games such as Creatures 1&2 and Another World, among others. The games hang after the trainer intros. It seems to be only games with trainers that hang, and games that were made in the 90's that push the hardware more. I first thought it was a compatability problem but i've seen other people running the Creatures games on VICE, so I know it can work. Is there a setting in VICE that I might have to turn on or off to get these games to boot properly? I know this may not be the best forum to ask this, but I figured you may have a solution? Thanks.
  4. Great! I meant more bigbox based settings anyway. I expected there not to be emulator specific settings. I'll try it out, thanks. And yeah, I hope it does use the home button because that seems like the only glaring omission at this point.
  5. Hello there. I have recently purchased the premium version of LaunchBox to gain access to BigBox and all of the customization options. And so far I love it! It pretty much covers everything I'd want in a frontend. The only thing I found that is missing (or that I haven't yet come across) is a home menu that overlays the game and gives you options to quit, or adjust some basic options on the fly. If this feature does exist, is there a way to map this function to the PS/Xbox home buttons? It's just that I want this setup completely TV friendly with minimal use of the mouse and keyboard (apart from DOS/Amiga/C64 stuff of course).
  6. Ah yeah thank you! While im here could you tell me if there's a way to display missing metadata by bulk instead of having to edit each game and find the ID, then press ok? Because I reimported the C64 roms and found that while the images are still on my harddrive, the metadata is not displaying for them. I have to edit, then find the ID for every single one before the information will show. Also, the majority of my MAME titles don't have displayed metadata too, even if they are displaying images. Thanks.
  7. @Zombeaver Hiya, I watched your fs-uae launchbox video tutorial and managed to get some WHDLoad folders working via your methods. Thank you! But I'm having a problem with some games not working due to them using an A600 kickstart by default instead of the A1200 (which seems to work with everything). I do have the A600 rom, but it is ghosted out in the selection menu. I even tried the amiga forever essentials roms (which I purchased) and still the A600 rom is ghosted out. This would be fine if I could simply set the affected games to A1200 and save the settings, but I don't know how to save the settings for each game. Can't see anything that lets me do that. Can you do that with the database games? Or if not then what rom sets would you suggest so that the A600 rom is usable (or what did you use?) Thanks again.
