  1. Yes, that is by design. Unfortunately doing it instantly is not supported.
  2. This is on my own personal bucket list as well, so I do plan to attempt it here at some point. The biggest challenge is that we'll need new media in order for the boxes to actually look correct.
  3. I think this should be possible without too much trouble. On my list. That's probably Big Box itself doing that. Loading the Total Games Count is a slower process, so it's too intensive to do instantly during quick moves.
  4. Oic, is it the "CriticalZoneV2 - Default" theme, or is the "Default" theme? I'm guessing that's where the confusion is coming from. Looks like we need to update the project file for that one.
  5. Odd, I see. So the issue is that your Big Box Default theme is waaaaay out of date. Did you used to have a Big Box license? The Default theme is only updated when you actually start up Big Box, so I'm guessing that it just hasn't been updated in a long time. I can get you an updated Default theme if needed. Let me know if you still need it after playing around with the theme creator.
  6. Thank you guys. I still haven't been able to reproduce either error, unfortunately. I'm still running my testing. @MrSco I'm thinking I have to be missing something somehow. I'm sorry that it's been so long and that we haven't been able to get it figured out. I'm wondering if you'd be willing to do (yet another) test for me. From what I can tell, it has to somehow be related to the collection (because you're testing on multiple machines and such), but as I've been testing with your data it doesn't seem to be data-related, and now we know that it doesn't seem to be media-related. Would you be willing to make a brand new instance of LaunchBox/Big Box on one of your machines and import just a few platforms? That way we can confirm whether it's actually collection-related or not. @ItchyRobot Can you try updating to the latest version of .NET Core? There's actually a later version out than the one that comes with the setup. Here's a direct link: https://download.visualstudio.microsoft.com/download/pr/add2ffbe-a288-4d47-8b09-a39c8645f505/8516700dd5bd85fe07e8010e55d8f653/windowsdesktop-runtime-3.1.8-win-x64.exe
  7. All of the Options pages and screens are indeed themeable in recent versions of Big Box, so there shouldn't be anything holding theme developers back, from that perspective. Changing font sizes is very easy to do, even by hand. I understand though if the Community Theme Creator doesn't support this yet; @y2guru's been busting his butt on it to meet the demands of the community (and they are very demanding lol).
  8. Okay, thanks guys. I'll do some more testing with EmuMovies media. What particular platforms are you importing that you're seeing issues with? Any chance you can screenshot me the errors/file names?
  9. @Vastarien We would recommend using @y2guru's Community Theme Creator: It'll give you a decent idea of what can be done in theming Big Box without having a license. I did just load up the Default theme project in Visual Studio though (the one that comes with 11.6), and I'm not seeing any errors. What errors are you seeing? Per what Big Box can do theme-wise, there are lots of videos on the YouTube channel. Unfortunately though Visual Studio won't really give you all that much of a way to test your themes, without having a Big Box license.
  10. 11.7-beta-1 is out now, details are here: I'm hoping this at least helps this issue. I added a forced timeout after 60 seconds of inactivity. Let me know how it fares for you guys. You can download the beta by going to Tools > Options > General > Updates in LaunchBox and checking the box to update to beta releases. Then you can check for the update by going to Help > Check for Updates.
  11. Doesn't look like it made the poll, no. We've had quite a few requests for it, but we've hesitated to implement it because it's not possible to do accurately. For example, we don't 100% know if "Game A" for one platform is actually the same game for another platform, or if it's just a duplicate title. Our best idea though is to use developer, publisher, and release date information to try and line them up. It wouldn't be perfect this way but it will probably end up as an option on the next poll.
  12. The first 11.7 beta is out now. Details here:
  13. Interesting, I haven't seen this elsewhere. It's certainly odd that a manual install worked, while an automatic install did not. Did you happen to reboot in between attempts?
  14. Hey all, the first 11.7 beta is out now with the following: Improvement: The multi-threaded downloader has been updated to force a timeout after 60 seconds of inactivity to help prevent "stuck" download situations due to Internet connection hiccups Improvement: The Last Played detail line for platforms and filters in Big Box was changed to a localized short date format Improvement: The Manage Emulators window has been overhauled Improvement: The Bulk Edit window has been overhauled, and now allows you to easily add and remove items from multi-select fields Fixed: Rare "Value cannot be null" VLC error Fixed: Error on Big Box exit with the "Allow Sleep" option on Fixed: Rare LEDBlinky error when calling FrontEndQuit Fixed: Welcome screen now saves your ignore setting regardless of how you close it
