  1. Also, I noticed if I add new platforms to Launchbox the GamesWheel view is default when the rest are the custom view. How does that work? Is the theme stored in the platform settings? Just curious.
  2. Ooph missed those I do have Daphne and ALG (downloaded the packs from another website for $20, well worth it). Openbor I have a few titles but could add in a few, it's not a platform right now though, I think I added them under Windows? Maybe I should separate those out. As for M.U.G.E.N... not sure, I love fighting games but a lot of those titles just seemed rediculous. SM2 and SM3 I also missed, have both. For pinball, I think pinball is probably left to a virtual pinball cab so I've skipped those for now.
  3. Getting close emulating most platforms that suit an arcade cabinet. Anything I missed? Arcade - MAME Taito Type-X Naomi/Naomi2 TechnoParrot PC Games - Windows 3DO Atari 2600/5200/7800 Atari Jaguar Vectrex XBOX TG-16/TG-16 CD N64 Nintendo Entertainment System Nintendo GameCube Nintendo Virtual Boy Nintendo Wii/Wii-U PC Engine SuperGrafx Sega 32x/32x CD Sega CD Sega Dreamcast Sega Genesis Sega Master System Sega Saturn SNK Neo Geo CD Sony Playstation/2/3 SNES Atari Lynx Konami Handheld Nintendo DS/3DS Nintendo Game & Watch GameBoy/Advance/Color Game Gear Neo Geo Pocket PSP Tiger Handheld Wonderswan/Color
  4. I've been playing with BigBox themes and I find that I like the look of the default theme except that in the games list mode sometimes the game title screen from a previous selection "sticks" and shows on subsequent selections. Also I don't like the fact that HD videos from EmuMovies plays fullscreen. I did find that I could use CriticalZone V2 games list view alongside the default platform view to get very close to what I want. In CriticalZone V2 the vertical scrolling mode plays HD videos in a smaller 4:3 screen under the box art, this I like. However for Theme videos I would like them to behave more like the Default theme where they play fullscreen, and maybe after 2 seconds fade out the boxart and details. I also don't know why the image background seems to be just a fullscreen view of the boxart. I would like it to behave more like the default theme where it shows fanart backgrounds. How would I go about doing this?
  5. I personally don't like RHLoader. I've managed to get most Type X games to run with no problem with typex_config/typex_loader. When that failed I went to TeknoParrot. Look for tutorials on how to get the specific game to run, sometimes there are executable patches to run on windows 10, higher resolution, etc. http://www.emuline.org/ has several tutorials and patches. Even so there are a few stubborn type-x games I could not load, usually due to a Windows patch that breaks things. I swear I had King of Fighters Maximum Impact Regulation A working just fine, then suddenly it crashes on load, probably due to a windows patch.
  6. Any game that utilizes digital controls. I've been able to use PS3, Wii/Wii-U, PSP, PS/PS2, etc games but the library of games is limited to those that are 2D style platformers. Anything with a keyboard is pretty much a no go as well. This included Intellivision and Odysee2 and 5200 because most games required the digital keypad. I did add two USB ports to the front though so I can if needed just use an analog PS2 style gamepad but I still prefer to not put those types of games on the cab.
  7. I would just switch to Xinput on my cab permanently if the trackball didn't stop working, I may eventually just hack the trackball to a second USB or IPAC.
  8. My arcade cab games. If keyboard configuration was not possible I used AHK to remap keys especially if Shift/Ctrl would not map. 198X Axiom Verge Big Bang Beat: First Impression Blade Arcus Blade Stangers Blasphemous Blazing Chome - No keyboard support though Bloodstained Chaos Code Darius Burst Dead or Alive 5 and 6 Dong Dong Never Die - Yeah not a very good game but funny Double Dragon Neon Ducktales Remastered Fighting Ex Layer Fight N Rage Guilty Gear Xrd REV2 He-Man and the masters of the universe (OpenBor) Injustice/Injustice 2 Killer Instict King of Fighters XIV Marvel vs Capcom Infinite Mortal Kombat X/11/Komplete Edition Outrun 2006 SNK Heroines Sonic... galore Soul Calibur VI Street Fighter V Street Fighter X Tekken Streets of Rage 4/Streets of Rage Remake Strider Super Hydorah The Takeover TMNT Rescue-Palooza Tekken 7 Tetris Effect Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 Umineko Under Night In Birth Yatagarasu
  9. I've seen in the past if RA config has two entries for the same configuration in the config file, it randomly selects one. That gave me quite the headache once.
  10. But how much space are they really saving with these rom diffs vs just having the full rom? Most of the roms changed were ~1MB in size.
  11. I find it crazy that it requires 30+ steps to update a MAME romset and it has to be done in order so 30+ steps times how many versions you are behind. There has to be a better way. That said I just ditched my 209 version and updated to 219, still a few versions behind but i'm not complaining at the moment. I just wish there was an updater application that just downloaded the required roms and patched it in one click. Honestly, I did a windiff between 209 and 219, there were a few new files, some differences, very few files removed, what's all the fuss of merging roms, just search with checksum and download what is new/different.
  12. I agree that Game Loader RH is not a virus, it's just for me anyway difficult to set up and for Type X games, I never had to use it.
  13. Retroarch has terrible raw input support for light guns. Mame is better and does work. Unfortunatley that meant for all systems that I wanted light gun emulation on I had to find an alternate emulator to retroach (sega genesis, master system, snes, etc).
  14. For the most part Type X games launch without RH All Games Loader or whatever it is. Also yes I got in trouble with ignoring those virus warnings, I believe one was a payload that did some nasty things. Most of my emulation is via keyboard (Xtension Arcade cabinet) so I don't know about xinput issues. You may try joy2key or something similar. There is a bit of software called TypeXtra, kind of hard to find in the wild but it has the proper dll's and loaders for each game. TechnoParrot has also been good at launching some Type X games, but not all.
  15. Alright, I'm in the process of getting 219. It's the latest I could find that was a single zip download on archive.org. Next will be to see how Launchbox handles it.
