    8.4-beta-1 Released

    Yes, that is by design. Previously there was no volume control for the videos. I didn't figure there's any reason to play music and the video at the same time, so no need for separate volume controls.

    LaunchBox.Next Missing Features Thread

    Just put out another beta folks: Fixed a bunch of stuff and added music playback and a volume control. Down to five items left: Custom spacing options (with # of text lines too) Controller support Box customization options (colors, placement, visibility, etc.) Mouse cursor popup options Game details translations wrong language in some cases/places

    LaunchBox.Next Missing Features Thread

    I've been monitoring RAM usage carefully and haven't been able to replicate this at all, but I haven't done much testing on Windows 7. I'll have to go back to that once we near the end of .Next development here soon.

    8.4-beta-1 Released

    Alright all, beta 6 is out with the following changes/fixes/additions for .Next: Incorrect translation in the right-click menu has been fixed LaunchBox.Next no longer prioritizes cinematic videos Hopefully fixed the occasional issue with games not unselecting properly Set a maximum width on the side bar to prevent it from getting too large and then not being sizable Fixed playlist manual sorting Implemented music playback Added a volume control to the bottom right Per the side bar sizing, I still have never been able to replicate it changing randomly, and I believe I've only heard it from one person, so I'm hoping that just preventing it from growing too big will suffice for now. I'm betting it has something to do with changing resolutions or DPI settings on the fly (probably caused by an emulator). Per music playback, I believe everything has been implemented sans for the song name and the associated drop down list in the bottom bar. The song name can be seen via a tool tip, but you can't currently click it to select a different track. I was never much of a fan of this interface in OG LaunchBox, so I'm hoping to come up with a better interface for that when I do implement it. That may take a back seat for now unless I get too many gripes about it. Anyways, here's what's left on my list at current: Custom spacing options (with # of text lines too) Controller support Box customization options (colors, placement, visibility, etc.) Mouse cursor popup options Game details translations incorrect language in places Happy weekend everybody.

    The "All", "None", and "Exists" changing *should* only be happening when you change the language; it does automatically happen when the language is changed. If you can confirm that it is indeed happening every time though, I'll look into it, but I'm pretty sure that's not the case. Gotcha on the translations in the game details, I'll see if I can't patch that up.

    CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox

    @Dan I do plan to fix that yes, but as of right now it's not a high priority.

    Ideal HDD for Bigbox?

    Generally the smartest way to spend your money on hard drives is to purchase a 250 GB or 500 GB SSD. The best way to do it is to put your OS as well as LaunchBox and all your media on the SSD, and then you keep the game files themselves on a slower mechanical drive since they take up much more space and won't slow down your browsing experience in Big Box. Maybe you could keep your existing drive for that? To be honest, this day and age you're really shooting yourself in the foot if you're not running at least the OS off of an SSD.

    View counts for playlists?

    That is correct; we will not be making any significant improvements to OG LaunchBox at this point. I have plans to add a bunch more configuration options to .Next here soon, so hopefully that will work for you @djFai.
  9. Thanks for noting that. I've changed the code for the next beta to stop prioritizing the cinematic videos.

    Gotcha, should be an easy fix. I just missed that spot.

    I see. It's apparently the Manual sort that's not working properly, though everything else is. Thanks for the details.

    What is your playlist's sort by setting set to? How is it being sorted when you view it? Are you using the boxes view or the list view?

    Alright, 8.4-beta-5 is out: I've fixed a number of things as noted in the above thread. Here's what's left: Custom spacing options (with # of text lines too) Controller support Music playback Sidebar resizing randomly Box customization options (colors, placement, visibility, etc.) Mouse cursor popup options Occasional multi-select issues (games are not unselected on rare occasions)

    8.4-beta-1 Released

    Alright folks, beta 5 is out. I focused mostly on .Next bugfixes today. These items have been fixed/implemented: Jump to new game after game is added Adding to playlist requiring a restart Defaulting to system language in some cases/places (let me know if anyone is still seeing this anywhere) Download Metadata and Media wizard buttons cut off Here's what we have left for .Next: Custom spacing options (with # of text lines too) Controller support Music playback Sidebar resizing randomly Box customization options (colors, placement, visibility, etc.) Mouse cursor popup options Occasional multi-select issues (games are not unselected on rare occasions)

    Okay, I'll do some more testing on lower-end hardware to see if there's anything I can do to improve performance there.
