  1. You can emulate ColecoVision through MAME using either a software list or full rompath direct media calls. If you're using the roms with the .col extension that ColEm uses then you can use direct media calls. The ColecoVision Associated Platform Default Command-Line Parameters for LaunchBox are coleco -cart and the games can have the normal ColecoVision naming or be zipped or not. However, the Bios that ColEm uses will not work. You need the system's romset, coleco.zip, which should contain the two files colecoa.rom 313 10031-4005 73108a.u2
  2. Acorn Archimedes Game Boxes 3D View File A collection of 3D box images of games released for the Acorn 32-bit home computer series. It's not complete, as some games either have no artwork scans or very poor ones to work with. Box types and dimensions vary in line with the original game cases as far as I could discover. Some are already in the LaunchBox Games Database, with the remainder (for games that exist in the Database) being submitted soon. Included in this download, but not added to the LaunchBox Games Database are: 1. 3D box fronts for games not in the Database. 2. 3D box backs for some games. The Database does not support a Box Back-3D image field. 3. 2D front and back covers (face only, no spine) reduced to jpg format. Not included are boxes for non-game software (educational, utility etc.). When I decided to skip the non-game boxes, I'd already done quite a few. I did a cull, but some may have crept in. A few boxes in the Database may differ slightly from those in this download. Whenever edits were made the boxes were updated on the Database, but I may have slipped up here and there. Enjoy.

  4. Many thanks @Jason Carr Guest topic reading is working again.
  5. Since the recent forums update a little earlier, I'm unable to browse topics as a guest and get the error below. When logged in then everything works as before the update. The error isn't making much sense to me.
  6. This TTL game is internal to MAME so there is no breakout.zip, unless the import process maybe creates a dummy one. The MAME command line for it is just mame64.exe breakout You can launch it through LaunchBox by making a dummy zip, or else, like I do, by pointing LaunchBox to just breakout.
  7. I haven't tried out that emulator. It's user manual seems all to do with the GUI, but if you run it with the parameter -h it should show a list of it's command line parameters.

    Emulating the Intellivision using the dedicated emulator Nostalgia is straightforward. You don't need to set any parameters in LaunchBox, everything can be set using the emulator's gui. However, you do need to source full versions of the grom and exec bins as the versions supplied with the emulator are crippled and will only run the games bundled with Nostalgia. You can also use MAME like I do.
  9. Some time ago, Jason updated LaunchBox to allow it to handle games like that in the style that MAME itself does. So, instead of making a dummy zip, you can just point LaunchBox to either a non existing zip such as gtfore06.zip like @DOS76 is doing or to the chd folder itself. This is what I do and have no problems launching games like Golden Tee Fore! 2006 Complete, Chaos Heat and XII Stag to name just a few that have no dumped game roms.
  10. @Quebert There was a game called Timber which was a tree felling 1984 Midway arcade game, but I don't believe it had caber tossing. The game's manufacturer, if you could remember it, would be a great help.
  11. @xllovera I'm not too sure whether you want to edit the theme or just hide the platform banners. In BigBox try going to Options, Images and disabling the Show Platform Banner Images tickbox

  13. Hi @Codeen I'm on MAME 0.206 and my Neo-Geo CDZ games play just fine. Just retested Double Dragon. Regarding your Neo_Geo CDZ (US) bios not showing in the UI. With MAME 0.206, when you select the BIOS filter, the centre window lists all the arcade bios whether you have them or not. It does not show the bios for the console/computer stuff like Neo-Geo CDZ (US), Intellivision, Odyssey 2, ColecoVision (NTSC) and so on. The Available filter, which lists what you actually have, will show any non arcade bios you have such as your Neo-Geo CDZ (US) one. By the way, the Neo-Geo CDZ (US) bios (neocdz.zip) hasn't changed since late 2017.
  14. MAME arcade roms and software list roms should never be placed in the same folder, as some of these games have identical rom names but completely different internals. A bit out of my depth here, but I do remember that when MESS was independent of MAME, the various software list roms were supposed to go in folders named after the systems. I don't know if this applies to the MAME/MESS all in one we have today as I don't use software lists; the simpler console/computer media approach is just fine for me.
