  1. Thanks! Yeah it’s super hard to be motivated when there’s literally nothing to do. Must admit I’ve lost a bit of the motivation now I’ve finished. Need to think up a new project but probably left it too late as I’ll be back in work in a few weeks! But I can cross one off the bucket list!
  2. Hey Guys! Hope you are all keeping well during the zombie apocalypse! I'm over in the UK and was placed on furlough in December. This has meant I've had a lot of free time on my hands. Obviously I've been gaming a lot on my bartop. Being a child of the 70s I love playing the old shooters like 1942, Galaga, Star Force, Twin Cobra etc... Especially with Launchbox supporting shared high-scores. It's definitely helped keep me sane. Having a very casual interest in coding I thought it would be fun to try and make my own game but in the style of the 80s games. So thats what I
  3. Hey Guys, So this is a bit of a weird one. Love Launchbox and Bigbox and have been playing arcade games for 40 years! Well, like a lot of people I was furloughed in December so had a lot of free time on my hands. Having an interest in coding (only as a hobby), I thought it would be fun to have a go at making a game for my machine. I've never made a game before, just websites and utilities. Even then, they weren't exactly well coded as its just something I dabble with from time to time when I fancy learning something new. I love 80s vertical shooters like 1942, Galaga, Twi
  4. @JoeViking245 Amazing! It looks like the core folder was the issue. Now working great. Thank you so much!
  5. Hey Guys, Just a quick question. Is it possible to run a windows batch file after exiting bigbox? The reason is that my PC is running 2 monitors. one of which is inside my arcade cab. I have a batch file that currently does the following... Switches audio output to Arcade Cabinet Switches HDMI out to Monitor in Arcade Cabinet Launches OBS minimized. I know bigbox can do this but I like to launch OBS before starting Bigbox. Launch BigBox ideally I want the script to then... Wait for BigBox to exit change audio back to main display
  6. I think it must have been something like that as I deleted the big box config file and went back to defaults. High scores then worked fine.
  7. No problem, I'll reset the DIP switches. I don't suppose the system is clever enough to recognize when its just a language switch? On Shinobi for example, the mission text defaults to Japanese unless you change a DIP switch. Also, I have one last question about Community High Scores. Can I view them in BigBox? there is a keymapping for "Show High Scores" but when I press it, BigBox crashes out to desktop.
  8. Hi Guys, I just have a question that I can't see an answer to anywhere. Does setting the difficulty or other dip-switches in games make a difference to uploading? I'm old and tend to play games on easy. Also, 1942 defaults to 2 lives but I was always used to playing it with 3 lives in the arcades. If I have to leave them as default thats fine but just wanted to check if it makes a difference? Awesome job by the way. Craig
