    Launchbox Cache-Next folder

    ...the betas do not yet consolidate the cache folders. I'm not sure of the exact method we'll use at this point, but something like that.

    8.6-beta-1 Released

    The polls are the best representations of milestones that we have, as I do my best to focus on the most-voted features as the priority. Unfortunately I'm not comfortable making further predictions or further public plans due to the frequency in which they change and the general flexibility of development.

    Bigbox lag

    A new beta is out now (8.6-beta-1) that I'm hoping will fix this issue for people, though I can't be certain until you guys test.

    Launchbox Cache-Next folder

    I will be addressing this for the next official release (8.6). Yes, the original cache folder does contain cached images for both OG LaunchBox and Big Box. If you want to clean up the space immediately, unfortunately the best option is going to be to just delete the Cache folder, but then you'll need to repopulate your Big Box cache.

    8.6-beta-1 Released

    Alright, here's the first beta for 8.6. There's quite a bit in this one so far: - Please note that the original LaunchBox interface has been completely removed and replaced with the LaunchBox.Next interface for this beta (the same will be for the 8.6 official release). This was done in order to allow much quicker development going forward, solve a number of long-standing stability and flexibility problems caused by the previous interface, and solve fragmentation problems. - LaunchBox now supports custom themes just like Big Box. Check out the new LaunchBox\LBThemes folder, and change the theme under Tools > Options > Visuals. - A new "Disable Mouse Cursor Across All Apps" option in available in Big Box under Options > Mouse; this option will hide the mouse cursor completely while Big Box is open, in all apps. - Fixed: Some message boxes were not centering properly - Fixed: Several background music priority/overlap bugs have been fixed in Big Box - Fixed (hopefully): Controller input in Big Box was experiencing occasional hiccups on some systems - Fixed (hopefully): Setting controller buttons in LaunchBox was occasionally glitching out I'm very much looking forward to seeing what the community can create for LaunchBox themes.
  6. I believe I have this fixed for the next beta. Let me know if you're still seeing this @japespin after 8.6-beta-1 comes out later today. This is definitely unrelated to the issue described in this thread. I will take a look at it though.

    Bigbox lag

    My point was that it's not happening on the majority of systems, which has nothing to do with the reasons behind it... Regardless, I'm looking into it soon.

    Bigbox lag

    Yeah, somehow it must be system-specific. I haven't pinpointed what causes it, but from my experience, the majority of systems do not have the issue, which is why it went under my radar for so long.
  9. Hi Axenn, the pictures are named by the title of the game. However, the file path of the game can also be used, and there is some rough matching in place as well. You could always use a LaunchBox plugin in order to use LaunchBox's own algorithms. Documentation is here: http://pluginapi.launchbox-app.com/html/4cf923f7-940c-5735-83de-04107a6ae0e6.htm

    LaunchBox.Next Missing Features Thread

    We may add further controller options in the future, but the new implementation provides a lot more flexibility, as the old custom pointer solution only allowed navigation within the boxes and did not allow navigation on any of the popup windows.We could add a custom cursor, but honestly I don't think that custom cursor that we had would work very well outside of the boxes view, since it's so big. I agree about scrolling with the right stick though; hopefully I can add that soon.
  11. @japespin I will take a look at this soon; are you using the LaunchBox.Next interface? It's possible that this is a bug that is unique to LaunchBox.Next.

    Bigbox lag

    I will be looking at this very soon. I do want to note, however, that while this issue apparently does affect a number of people, it is not a global issue. It seems to be either system-specific or it may have to do with lower-end specs. The reason why it was not addressed a long time ago is simply because the issue was never detailed out in a way that I was able to understand or replicate. I've since been able to replicate the issue on one of my lower-end machines though, so I can look into a fix. Now that LaunchBox.Next is out, I plan to tackle it very soon.

    Clear logo for LaunchboxNext 8.4

    Yes, certainly. It's on my list.

    Launchbox frontend control 2nd player

    Hi Mark, unfortunately it's not yet possible to bind multiple keys to the same command in Big Box. It was actually an item on the latest community poll, but it came out third from the bottom because it didn't get very many votes. So hopefully we can add that eventually, but it hasn't been a popular request.

    Remove "view" / sort options in bigbox

    Makes sense guys; I can see adding an option to prevent switching views without the pin, and combining the view menu items as well. It's on my list, though it might be a while.
