  1. I've been adding my steam games via steam://rungameid etc etc and they launch fine, but i'm finding they're not loading the additional apps of an autohotkey script that's set up to run before and after launch. Is there something I must do to make it work?
  2. yeah i guess that was more the question - does anyone know how to drop a windows menu bar from displaying?
  3. I found this tribute edition of my little pony where it's like streetfighter but w/my little pony. my daughters love it, so i want to put it into bigbox. the problem is that the game in still has the windows menu bars on the top. if you do full screen, it's kind of a hot mess. anyone have any ideas on how i could get this to display full screen without the menu in launched from big box? I'm not going to post links but a quick google of my little pony tribute edition shows the dl links. thanks!
  4. there’s a version of it that has a bezel and settings. you simply drag the exe into launchbox, pick windows as the platform. tweak it as retro said. it works well!
  5. I'm wondering if anyone has gotten this yet? It works great but every time it prompts me to set the clock, even though the time is good to go. wondering if there's a way for me to fix that permanently or stop that check? Thanks!
  6. pause theme area is pretty inactive. i wanted to post it here for visibility with theme makers.
  7. Here's what I'd like to have, please tell me if this is 1. even possible 2. done already or 3. if you'd like to help me get it done (I'll pay!): Pause theme would be a graphic for each game that would have the instructions for controls. I will create the graphics for each game this would apply for. I just want to be able to drop in a file into a folder and it work magically... Attached is my current mockup, which matches the design of my controller. Thanks!
  8. I’ve created some stuff for games that didnt have metadata. How can I add that info or submit the data and files?
  9. so i could use default pause theme and use my images named for each game?
  10. i thought we were discussing in the context of Launchbox. I'm sure a video would work well, but as I pointed out, most videos are 2 seconds of actual help and 9 minutes of fluff.
  11. Written instructions are better than video. Something is better than nothing. Thanks!
  12. thanks man! i know there's a ton of videos around, but i must be an old guy or something at 38 where i just can't stand listening to amateurs drone on and on when i could just look at a bullet list for an answer. and 4 minutes of "subscribe and watch my other videos." thats a long way of me saying, would it be helpful to create a wiki for your awesome software? i could chip away at it. it wouldn't be perfect but it'd be something? let me know
  13. I'm wondering if some of you Daphne wizards can help me out. Here's my situation: I have all games working in Launchbox except DL, DL2, SA, and Cobra Command. I can run those four games in Daphne Loader without a problem. When I use the command line generated from Daphne Loader and run that in Command Prompt in the Daphne emulator folder, it tells me it can't find the rom files. Even though it runs through Daphne Loader fine. Here's my command line: daphne.exe lair2 vldp -framefile D:\ROMS\Daphne\lair2\lair2.txt -blank_searches -min_seek_delay 1000 -seek_frames_per_ms 20 -homedir D:\HyperSpin\Emulators\Daphne -sound_buffer 2048 -x 640 -y 480 Here's my framefile (lair2.txt): d:\roms\daphne\lair2 00001 dl2-00001.m2v 00002 dl2-00002.m2v 00721 dl2-00721.m2v 02102 dl2-02102.m2v 04427 dl2-04427.m2v 04477 dl2-04477.m2v 04527 dl2-04527.m2v 04577 dl2-04577.m2v 04627 dl2-04627.m2v 04677 dl2-04677.m2v 04727 dl2-04727.m2v 04777 dl2-04777.m2v 04827 dl2-04827.m2v 04877 dl2-04877.m2v 04927 dl2-04927.m2v 04977 dl2-04977.m2v 05027 dl2-05027.m2v 05077 dl2-05077.m2v 05127 dl2-05127.m2v 05177 dl2-05177.m2v 05227 dl2-05227.m2v 05277 dl2-05277.m2v 05327 dl2-05327.m2v 05377 dl2-05377.m2v 05427 dl2-05427.m2v 05477 dl2-05477.m2v 07707 dl2-07707.m2v 07757 dl2-07757.m2v 07807 dl2-07807.m2v 07857 dl2-07857.m2v 07907 dl2-07907.m2v 07957 dl2-07957.m2v 08007 dl2-08007.m2v 08057 dl2-08057.m2v 08107 dl2-08107.m2v 08157 dl2-08157.m2v 08207 dl2-08207.m2v 08257 dl2-08257.m2v 10486 dl2-10486.m2v 10536 dl2-10536.m2v 10586 dl2-10586.m2v 10636 dl2-10636.m2v 10686 dl2-10686.m2v 10736 dl2-10736.m2v 10786 dl2-10786.m2v 10836 dl2-10836.m2v 10886 dl2-10886.m2v 10936 dl2-10936.m2v 10986 dl2-10986.m2v 11036 dl2-11036.m2v 13473 dl2-13473.m2v 13523 dl2-13523.m2v 13573 dl2-13573.m2v 13623 dl2-13623.m2v 13673 dl2-13673.m2v 13723 dl2-13723.m2v 13773 dl2-13773.m2v 13823 dl2-13823.m2v 13873 dl2-13873.m2v 13923 dl2-13923.m2v 13973 dl2-13973.m2v 14023 dl2-14023.m2v 14073 dl2-14073.m2v 14123 dl2-14123.m2v 14183 dl2-14183.m2v 14233 dl2-14233.m2v 16670 dl2-16670.m2v 16720 dl2-16720.m2v 16770 dl2-16770.m2v 16820 dl2-16820.m2v 16870 dl2-16870.m2v 16920 dl2-16920.m2v 16970 dl2-16970.m2v 17020 dl2-17020.m2v 17070 dl2-17070.m2v 17120 dl2-17120.m2v 17170 dl2-17170.m2v 17220 dl2-17220.m2v 17270 dl2-17270.m2v 17320 dl2-17320.m2v 17380 dl2-17380.m2v 17430 dl2-17430.m2v 19860 dl2-19860.m2v 19910 dl2-19910.m2v 19960 dl2-19960.m2v 20005 dl2-20005.m2v 20055 dl2-20055.m2v 20105 dl2-20105.m2v 20155 dl2-20155.m2v 20205 dl2-20205.m2v 20275 dl2-20275.m2v 20325 dl2-20325.m2v 20385 dl2-20385.m2v 20435 dl2-20435.m2v 20480 dl2-20480.m2v 20530 dl2-20530.m2v 20590 dl2-20590.m2v 20640 dl2-20640.m2v 20690 dl2-20690.m2v 20740 dl2-20740.m2v 23170 dl2-23170.m2v 23220 dl2-23220.m2v 23270 dl2-23270.m2v 23315 dl2-23315.m2v 23365 dl2-23365.m2v 23415 dl2-23415.m2v 23465 dl2-23465.m2v 23515 dl2-23515.m2v 23585 dl2-23585.m2v 23635 dl2-23635.m2v 23695 dl2-23695.m2v 23745 dl2-23745.m2v 23790 dl2-23790.m2v 23840 dl2-23840.m2v 23900 dl2-23900.m2v 23949 dl2-23949.m2v 24000 dl2-24000.m2v 24050 dl2-24050.m2v 26650 dl2-26650.m2v 26700 dl2-26700.m2v 26750 dl2-26750.m2v 26800 dl2-26800.m2v 26850 dl2-26850.m2v 26900 dl2-26900.m2v 26950 dl2-26950.m2v 27000 dl2-27000.m2v 27050 dl2-27050.m2v 27100 dl2-27100.m2v 27150 dl2-27150.m2v 27200 dl2-27200.m2v 27250 dl2-27250.m2v 27300 dl2-27300.m2v 27350 dl2-27350.m2v 27400 dl2-27400.m2v 27450 dl2-27450.m2v 30050 dl2-30050.m2v 30100 dl2-30100.m2v 30150 dl2-30150.m2v 30200 dl2-30200.m2v 30250 dl2-30250.m2v 30300 dl2-30300.m2v 30350 dl2-30350.m2v 30400 dl2-30400.m2v 30450 dl2-30450.m2v 30500 dl2-30500.m2v 30550 dl2-30550.m2v 30600 dl2-30600.m2v 30650 dl2-30650.m2v 30700 dl2-30700.m2v 30750 dl2-30750.m2v 30800 dl2-30800.m2v 30850 dl2-30850.m2v 33559 dl2-33559.m2v 33609 dl2-33609.m2v 33659 dl2-33659.m2v 33709 dl2-33709.m2v 33759 dl2-33759.m2v 33809 dl2-33809.m2v 33859 dl2-33859.m2v 33909 dl2-33909.m2v 33959 dl2-33959.m2v 34009 dl2-34009.m2v 34059 dl2-34059.m2v 34109 dl2-34109.m2v 34159 dl2-34159.m2v 34209 dl2-34209.m2v 34259 dl2-34259.m2v 34309 dl2-34309.m2v 37019 dl2-37019.m2v 37069 dl2-37069.m2v 37119 dl2-37119.m2v 37169 dl2-37169.m2v 37219 dl2-37219.m2v 37269 dl2-37269.m2v 37319 dl2-37319.m2v 37369 dl2-37369.m2v 37419 dl2-37419.m2v 37469 dl2-37469.m2v 37519 dl2-37519.m2v 37569 dl2-37569.m2v 37619 dl2-37619.m2v 37669 dl2-37669.m2v 37719 dl2-37719.m2v 37769 dl2-37769.m2v 37770 dl2-37770.m2v 37773 dl2-37773.m2v 37776 dl2-37776.m2v 37779 dl2-37779.m2v 37782 dl2-37782.m2v 37784 dl2-37784.m2v 39433 dl2-39433.m2v 39493 dl2-39493.m2v 39543 dl2-39543.m2v 39593 dl2-39593.m2v 39643 dl2-39643.m2v 39693 dl2-39693.m2v 39743 dl2-39743.m2v 39793 dl2-39793.m2v 41443 dl2-41443.m2v 41503 dl2-41503.m2v 41553 dl2-41553.m2v 41603 dl2-41603.m2v 41653 dl2-41653.m2v 41703 dl2-41703.m2v 41753 dl2-41753.m2v 41803 dl2-41803.m2v 44157 dl2-44157.m2v 44207 dl2-44207.m2v 44257 dl2-44257.m2v 44307 dl2-44307.m2v 44357 dl2-44357.m2v 44427 dl2-44427.m2v My folder structure is like this: Emulator: D:\Hyperspin\Emulators\Daphne Roms: D:\Roms\Daphne Each rom has its own folder. Each rom folder has all of the files extracted. All of the files the framefile is looking for is in that folder. Each rom folder has the framefile in it. Each rom folder even has all of the rom files lair2.zip, lair2_319_span.zip etc 1. Why is the command line not working? Even if I do the specific path to daphne (d:\hyperspin\emulators\daphne\daphne.exe) it tells me it can't find the rom and yells "feed me!" 2. Why is it just these games? 3. Would it be best to revert to the old daphne loader if I have all the media files? 4. Do I have to keep Daphne roms and media for these games in the traditional file places in the Daphne folder? EDIT: I spent a billion hours on this and I think I figured it out. For DL, DL2, SA I need to create a folder inside of the emulator directory called roms and then set one up for each of the games i.e. emulators/daphne/roms/lair and extracted the contents of the lair.zip rom into that folder. everything else remained the same and it played. Thanks in advance!!
  14. slightly on topic but do you guys know if fx3 has all the same tables as 2 plus new ones?
  15. if you want to do half and send it my way i can do the other half!
  16. I’ve created a widescreen template of my controller and I’m currently going thru and creating instruction images for each game. Sort of like the old school bezels I was going to have them display on a second screen but they may work on startup. Where would I put these files? How do I have it show that image for the individual game on startup?
  17. I want to segregate my Neo Geo roms as it was a console and arcade stuff. I have working roms in FBA and have all the roms in their own folder, tested fully. I've tried to import SNK Neo Geo MVS and it adds the items but doesn't find the games to grab meta data. It also adds the Japanese title after a / when it's doing the parse stage of the import. What am I doing wrong?
  18. An informal poll if you will... Do you use the MAME roms for neo geo and create a playlist? Do you use the MAME roms and just keep them lumped in with everything else? Do you use the Neo Geo romsets and emulators separately? Wondering what direction to go...
  19. Where would I find a run down of theme basics for BigBox? I'm wondering these things: What's a startup theme vs playlist theme vs general themes. How are they different? What are the components of a theme? What are different views? When does a platform or playlist theme stop and a game's theme take over? Is there such a thing? Where are the files stored and how? How can I have a startup video play when BigBox is loading? Is that a theme option? If I have a logo I've made for my build i.e. "Dad's Arcade", how do I include that throughout the experience? Is this in customizing the theme? Thanks!
  20. I don't have the time to throw something together or even get started here. I'm willing to pay a few bucks for a theme expert to tweak a theme for me. I have, what I believe to be, a simple tweak that I think would make the Unified Redux theme a bit better. Basically, like this guy's posts for platforms: I'm looking for the background, clear logo on the top, a window for the video, and a graphic and/or cover/box art on the side, then the "wheel" on the right. Right now there's wonky looking stuff and like a faux arcade and a ton of white space.
  21. I see in options that I can enable joysticks and customize which button will play, pause, etc. Where can I change the ‘play game’ button to be the + key instead of escape, for example? I have an IPAC4 customized up already, don’t really want to remap it. Thanks!
