1-Bit Wonder

1-Bit Wonder (1/7)



  1. I'm in the process of re-importing my library of games after games were being added to the wrong console by LB (I seen someone else on the forum had this issue too). But after deleting the launchbox display of games and reimporting them, I've run into this issue a few times where my actual roms are being renamed while importing them! Each time I'm importing these Dreamcast games it adds a "-1" at the end of each game, sometimes twice. This also shows in LaunchBox and of course makes the games not recognizable to match the meta data, so the pictures and game information are not displayed. Note that these games are not duplicates (ignore quake) nor do they have similar names within the folder/console. Luckily I came across a free tool called advanced renamer to remove the -1 of all the titles at once. However, I'm not entirely sure what's causing this issue. I'm thinking it might be caused by selecting "Move the files into my LaunchBox games folder" rather than "use the files in their current location" when the files are already named and moved in the LB designation folder. I only choose that option because it says "Launchbox will not attempt to organize the files." if I choose the other choice. Regardless of what's causing this, I hope this uncommon bug can be addressed. Attach is a screenshot of what is displayed.
  2. When Importing modern games and downloadable content add-ons I'm having a problem in which Launch box is unable to recognize DLC and group it with the games that they belong with, instead it imports DLC as separate games (DLC shows no data or pictures, games do). The files that I have for the X360 XBLA (Xbox 360 Live Arcade) don't have file extensions, so that may make it harder for LaunchBox to import the content properly. I also thought my issue might be caused by having different file names of games and DLC. Is there a proper format for DLC? This is an example of how I have mine labeled now: "3D Ultra Mini Golf 2 [258410A3B] Fairy Tales Map Pack (DLC)". Perhaps the title of the DLC should be in parenthesis or next to game title, is there a guide for this? (more modern console examples) Shouldn't Launch box show what DLC you have with the associated games in the games details? (that seems like a standard feature for modern consoles) Rather than combine each DLC to their game individually in Lunchbox after importing them (unable to do so, greyed out combine button). How do I properly import this DLC so that it is sorted properly? Also adding an option to not import .zip and .7z file format for ALL consoles would be helpful.
