    Video problems

    Are you talking about using VLC 3.x in Big Box? There's currently no way to use VLC 3.x in Big Box. It always uses the built-in version that's located inside the LaunchBox folder.

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Steam is particularly nasty to deal with because of the way that it launches games. I will play around with it a bit yet, but all in all it may honestly be impossible to do well for every game.

    Arcade 3D Boxes 2.0 project W.I.P.

    This is a good thing to note. I don't currently have a solution for this. I think, generally, it's mostly a non-issue for MAME games, but it becomes more of an issue when dealing with other arcade emulators. For now I guess I would recommend putting non-MAME arcade games for Sega Model 2, etc. in as separate platforms; that way you can best use the metadata from the database. I'll add this to my list to improve though.

    Unified Redux

    I'm sorry you're not happy with them. Either way, Unified wouldn't work well for 4:3. Both the Default theme and the included version of CriticalZone v2 should work great in most of the views.

    Building Game Console - Need Help

    Sorry for the lack of responses here. Can you clarify what your questions are? I think maybe people are just having trouble figuring out what you mean.

    installing launchbox

    I'm not following. What do you mean?

    If you're using Rocket Launcher, I can imagine we're probably going to run into a lot of conflicts. You may just have to turn off the LaunchBox startup screens completely in that case. I figure if you already have Rocket Launcher configured, why use the LaunchBox startup screens?

    Game-specific options are planned, so that should take care of it. I plan to get those implemented next week.

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Great to hear. Have you tried checking the "hide all non-exclusive fullscreen mode windows" box for that emulator?

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Bezels are being considered for a later date, but they're immensely more difficult to accomplish (and also immensely more error prone). The proper way to do bezels is for the emulator to implement them instead of the frontend. For the frontend to do it is a serious hack and will require separate implementations for each and every emulator. Between MAME and Retroarch, most systems should already be covered I think, so I'm calling bezels the least important of the three Rocket Launcher features: startup screens, pause screens, and bezels. Pause screens will be implemented next, and then bezels will be considered at a later date.

    installing launchbox

    Most likely you installed to the LaunchBox\LaunchBox folder on accident. You can uninstall the one in the LaunchBox\LaunchBox folder by just double clicking on the uninstall.exe file in that folder, but you will have to navigate to your LaunchBox folders. Then you can run the installer again and make 100% sure that it's installing to the correct folder. You have to pay attention because the installer will add LaunchBox to the folder after you browse for it. Look at the text box after browsing in the installer.

    Multiple instances of MAME if you multiple click

    That cabinet looks awesome @Super_Paulie.

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Beta 5 is out now with the following: New option to disable the shutdown screen in emulator settings Improved default startup screen settings for DOSBox, ScummVM, and Steam games Pressing escape or back buttons will now cancel out of game loading and immediately close the startup screen A new "Aggressive Startup Window Hiding" option is available in the emulator settings which helps to hide startup windows for stubborn emulators (Project64 for example) The new aggressive startup window hiding option should be used sparingly and only for emulators that need it, since it can cause various issues with other emulators that don't need it. I'll update the first post of this topic again with status.

    Okay; I'll do some testing with Demul. Can anyone else confirm this? Animated GIFs and videos do work just fine in the themes, so they should work just fine in the startup and shutdown themes as well. I do need to test this to make sure though; I have that on my list.

    It's possible that you generated those playlists with an early beta release; that would be my guess. It's looking for an "Autogenerated" flag on those playlists to hide them. My guess would be just that they were created with a beta before that existed. Does it work if you remove them and re-create them?
