  1. Perfect, the playlist idea will work just fine. Thank you. But that's interesting, I hadn't heard of other versions of LaunchBox with a badges feature... I'm on 10.15. Is it newer or older versions that have "badges"? edit: nevermind, I found the badges feature! cool
  2. Noob question: Ok, I've marked a handful of games as broken. Now, how do I see a list of these games so I can attempt to address the issues?
  3. I don't see the ability to hide BIOS ROMS in the import wizard. I'm referring to the ROM Import wizard, are you talking about the MAME Full Set import wizard? I'm afraid to run that again and mess up any thing that's already working (especially my favorites playlist).
  4. That's exactly what I'm seeing in the UI. Was wondering about that too. Thanks!
  5. I am not using the same version of mame, I am using the latest (v.221). Thank you, I'll try using the 0.193 version. As far as the rom set, I could only find merged versions of 0.221...
  6. I downloaded a set of "non-merged" v0.193 (latest I could find). I specifically sought out non-merged because I was under the impression that each game zip file contained all of the files needed to run that game. However, I didn't want a library of thousands of games so I carefully narrowed the list down to about 1000. Everything works fine except for a few games that I've noticed so far. For example X-men 4 player (rom "xmen") doesn't work. Mame gives me an error saying it's missing three files: 065-eba04.10d 065-eba05.10f xmen_eba.nv Doing some searching online I found that those files are found in the "xmene" zip file. I checked and indeed those files are in there. So I copied that zip file into my library folder and tried again in Mame and it gives me the same error. I don't understand anymore. Why aren't those files included in the "xmen" zip file? Why doesn't putting the "xmene" file into the library fix the issue? I'm using X-men as an example, but I'd like to find a solution for all games with a similar issue. Is there anyway to have Mame or Launchbox give me a list of all broken games?
  7. Aww man, too bad this isn't supported yet. I'm migrating from GameEx which does support spinner/trackball scrolling and it is so useful. You can really rip past games and quickly hone in on the one you want with precision. That will probably be the feature I miss the most.
  8. You may be right, but I think I tried that and it didn't work. I'm not sure but I think the Refresh Media only refreshes the games in the current view and with a playlist logo I'm not sure it refreshes that. I could be wrong. However, I just found the cache folder and simply deleting the folder and letting it rebuild (when you restart LB or BB) worked! It's here: \LaunchBox\Images\Cache-BB Note: I'm assuming this is not an issue with this theme, I just happened to encounter it while messing with this theme
  9. Hey, where did you find that? I'm having the same issue. Specifically, the issue I'm having is that it is not displaying most of my playlist clear logos. It displays one of them (Recently Played) but doesn't display the rest. I've placed the images in both locations: \LaunchBox\Themes\Colorful - Light\Images\Platforms\Clear Logo and in their individual folders: E.g.: \LaunchBox\Images\Playlists\Classics\Clear Logo
    I am blown away by this theme. Can't wait to see more! There are some issues with using the white background and certain logos, but hopefully those can be overcome with time. Also the custom game videos are sometimes obscured in an awkward way by the 2D game box when browsing, but it works great 90% of the time and the remaining 10% I can live with because I wouldn't change a thing about the layout so far.
  10. Is there a way to delay (or perhaps even completely disable) the disappearing game/menu wheel? I'm using the Unified custom theme and I'm speaking about the circular wheel that appears when you scroll up or down (either through consoles, playlists, or games). I just think it disappears to quickly when you stop on a game. Is this a theme setting or global to BigBox?
  11. When I go to "Download Platform/Playlist Theme Videos" there is a button there to "preview" the video selected. When I click it, VLC player launches, appears to buffer, but then just gives up and doesn't play anything. Any known way to fix this? I thought there was an option to use VLC or another player, but I can't seem to find that option anymore.
  12. Yes, but Retroarch (with Stella core) doesn't support that Atari controller.
  13. Let me start off by saying, I think I need to use multiple Stella emulators to accomplish what I want. But I'm not sure, so please let me know if you know of a better way. First, I'll explain what I'm trying to do, then I'll explain my current question about Stella. What I'm trying to do: I'm trying to make specific Atari 2600 games playable that use the Kid's Controller. These are games like Big Bird's Egg Catch and Cookie Monster Munch. I'm ultimately using a Xbox gamepad for my controller. My Question: The Kid's Controller is not supported by RetroArch (I confirmed in their forums). However, it is supported by Stella. The problem is that the controls for up/down/left/right or Action are NOT consistent from game-to-game. For example, in Big Bird's Egg Catch to move left/right you press 5 and 6 on the Kid's Controller. In Cookie Monster Munch you press 4 and 6 (and others for up/down/action). So I figured that I just need to install multiple copies of the stand-alone version of Stella, configure each one for a single game, and then tell LaunchBox to use the correct version of Stella. However, when I installed two copies of the stand-alone version of Stella they both seem to still be using the same configuration files. So changing the input settings on one changes them on both. So they're not really separate. Is what I'm trying to do possible?
  14. Version 1.0.0


    This logo is useful if you have have configured a Platform Category to hold all of your playlists. It's a small contribution compared to the great works of others on the site, but I thought others could use it too. I found the white version to look better, but you have a choice of white or black.

  16. I created a universal "recently played" playlist that show the last played games across all platforms. I've also added it to the Platforms view. I would like for this playlist to be automatically selected when starting BigBox. Is there a way to make a specific menu item (a playlist acting as a platform) the default when booting BigBox?

    Thanks. Yeah, looks like it's not created by default (at least on my recent fresh install), but I can create it no problem!

    I don't see a /videos/startup folder. I mean, I could create one, but maybe it's changed since this post?
