  1. Half inching the school desk as well was probably going a little too far. :P Really interesting tool. Thanks for sharing.
  2. That error shows it can't find every "ROM" in that games zip file therefore your ROM path is wrong somewhere. Sorry I can't be of more help haven't messed with MAME for ages.
  3. Jason Carr said Killer. Always loved video game history. Lol...hmm, development or "research". ;) Oy! Back to work you.

As for the speed thing I'm a bit old school so the mbps to MB/s conversion is almost natural to me.....wait...no..I'm stuck in the past really because I am thinking MB/s but they renamed it to MiB/s a while back, stupid I think, MB= 1,000kb and MiB= 1,024kb...anyway. I learned of the distinction as mb/s and MB/s. MB was 1,000 and mb was 1,024. The one I use daily and the most is mb anyways. 1,024 MB in a GB, in a TB etc etc. That is why I think 8.1mb/s is more quantifiable than 40mbps. Your distinction is one of decimal vs binary. and bears no relation to the letter case or the number of bytes in a megabyte. "b" actually denotes a "bit" whereas B denotes a byte. Wait... it does bear relation to the case. b vs B. I might have them backwards... but they're just a quick denotation right? Right! You're so sexy when you're angry bro.

  6. Flipin' 'eck! I only turned my back for like a week and you spring this on me.
  7. True enough. Actually that's cooler that I thought I never considered the feature in those terms.
  8. Just to add something I forgot, the Steam game folder is essentially portable so you could put that under LB. (Note to self: Need to start checking my punctuation so I don't flood Jason's inbox with edit's. Sorry:))
  9. Guess any games that don't use the registry, like the DOSBox stuff(Or GOG games that use DOSBOX) could be kept under LB, Native Windows games leave stuff all over though, this would be a stumbling block I would imagine.
  10. SentaiBrad said Duckeenie said No disrespect to yourself or LB but Scarlett Johansson is over-rated in my view. Morena Baccarin is clearly a goddess though :) ... huh? Your reply is amusingly ironic. I was relating to the OP's opening paragraph.

  13. Hey Jason! Might be an idea to add an error trap for fools like me that add the trailing slash to the URL as implied by Steam otherwise one just gets the account not found thing at the end. Y'all have an awesome day now.
  14. My first console and computer were probably Atari 7800 and ZX Spectrum +2. My fondest memories from back then though are the arcades. Oh and being too good at 1942 to finish a credit within my lunch hour; Sadly I can't get 5 mins out of a credit these days. Thank god for turn based strategy
  15. kamyk2000 said I don't understand what you mean by "LB emulator target = My Batch"? I'm not having any issues mounting CDs or running them at this point, just adding the proper commands to the relevant Launchbox entries en-masse instead of game by game... If you saw my post, I already wrote that batch file, including a command to unmount the game when I'm done. The problem is I had to use Launchbox's main emulator command line to mount the CDs, so I have to call the batch file from the additional apps entry and I have to add that info to each Launchbox entry manually. That, and otherwise still having no clue how to enter those other games into the Dosbox entries in Launchbox. I have been fiddling with them in Launchbox and I still don't get it. They both seem to require two -conf files, and Launchbox seems to only allow adding one. They also have a bunch of switches. I'd really appreciate someone looking over the command lines I posted for Dungeon Keeper and Deeper Dungeons, and telling me exactly what bit of information goes in what lines in the Launchbox entries for them. When I paste the command lines from the shortcuts directly into the main command lines in Launchbox it tells me "The specified file cannot be found" when I try to run them. My disclaimer was right there at the top, so not sure why you're surprised that my answer is off the mark Anyway, I was aiming to guide your thought process more than anything. So: You did say you were having to add stuff to each game manually, which isn't ideal. The only piece of the puzzle you're missing really is parameter passing. The solution is to get your batch to do all the work Just use LB as usual but in LB set the emulator as your batch for PCE games; Then read the parameter/s that you sent from LB as %1 %2 etc in your batch. This batch code should be some like you need: -------------------------------------------- C: CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Alcohol Soft\Alcohol 52\" AxCmd.exe k: /m %1 CD [where ever PCE is] start "" /wait pce -cd:K CD "C:\Program Files (x86)\Alcohol Soft\Alcohol 52\" AxCmd.exe" K: /U -------------------------------------------- Have a good day
