  1. No idea why I thought this would screw things up but thank you for this simple solution. LOL perfect.
  2. This is an old one but I'm trying to get my BigBox to display just like you were. When using platform categories as the main view I have to put to the "console" platform category somewhere even though I don't need it since I have all the consoles I need in the root. How did you handle that?
  3. QQ, how did you handle the different screen resolutions on desktop vs cabinet? I am trying to get a true sync with my desktop and HTPC launchbox and games etc. are synced great through goodsync but resolution specific settings--say tweaks to make a game play area fit in bezel/overlay correctly gets messed up with teh different resolutions between machines. I have to manually tweak anything not just set to 4:3.
  4. So wanted to throw another wrench in the works on this and see if you folks much smarter than me have any suggestions. I'm setting up a NO FILLER machine and want to have it mirrored on my desktop in my office and the HTPC upstairs on the big screen. I want everything synched and have that end covered with Goodsync and roms and such sync up great. However, I use "bezels' or more accurately I guess overlays for all the systems and many of them I have to "tweak" the x/y axis of similar to get the playing area to fall in the bezel correctly. However those tweaks are different based on which monitor/resolution I'm using. Any thoughts? Assuming there are a few files I could not sync and solve the issue but unsure which it would be. Thus far I'm only using Retroarch and Dolphin. Thanks in advance.
  5. Tried it again with several things Wii console with just 1 item, steam again, etc. And never did get it work. Guess I'll wait for it it get incorporate what is an extra 3 clicks. Appreciate your help though!
  6. Hah, missed 15.3 (LOL) I shall give it a shot tonight.
  7. Thought you were onto something as I'm an impatient fellow but no luck I let is go for 1 minute and same result. Steam opens. So did all of this several times. Every time it works 100% correctly the first time adding Steam to Platform Launch in the addon. In other words if I click on arcade or whatever it loads arcade games list as expected, I click on Steam launcher and it launches directly to steam as I wanted. Joy---except NOT. Because now after that initial time, every subsequent time I launch any platform from bigbox instead of games list I get steam. BUT the plot thickens. If I exit Bigbox and come back in---same thing all works as expected again for the first time only. Until AFTER I launch steam. Then every platform launches steam directly from wheel instead of entering games list. But if I exitBigbox all is good again until I launch steam. WTH?!?! Hah, crazytown.

  9. The old it's not me it's you. Been there before Hah! Thanks again so much for the time--will try this tonight as report back just for giggles. Thanks again.
  10. Yes. Exactly this LOL, very very strange. I could make an excellent "breaker" of software as I always find a way. Did this and only 1 text file in that folder "steam.txt" Wonky.
  11. Grr..the Ghost is in the machine--now the platform steam is launching for everything in the main menu (even those not assigned or with more than 1 game). This is happening in the default-copy theme too. Hmm.... EDIT: Even stranger here is that hte first time I test it it works as expected...steam launches directly from platform---other platforms open game selection...but 2nd time all platforms launch steam directly.
  12. Hahh, many thanks---it actually helps to know I'm not alone in the craziness of the time spent tweaking versus timing playing formula.
  13. Working as intended on default theme which is good enough for me for now. Much appreciated...Launchbox is amazing but surprised this ask wasn't a bigger priority for the team.
  14. LOL, so still no other solution for launch from main menu that you know of? Seems like I spoke too soon as now the steam app is launching for all platforms now lol! Going to try a fresh install of plugin on copy of default theme and see if that works as I was using coverart but I have no real theme allegiance!
