  1. The Game Series feature sounds interesting, but while waiting for the Beta release, I tried the 'Additional Apps' solution. I can't get that to work, though, because (I think) Sam & Max: Season 1 doesn't really point to anything. Comment for S&M 1.jpg: Season 1 doesn’t have its ‘own’ executable. Comment for S&M 3.jpg: I can’t really do anything with two check boxes at the bottom, because I’m not running a ‘Main Application’, as there isn’t one. Season 1 doesn’t have its own program, as it’s just a shell (for lack of a better term), in appearance only, I guess, for the a
  2. Is there a way to have 'sub-games' under a 'main game'? Case in point: "Sam & Max: Season 1" The actual 'season' is comprised of 6 episodes (6 separate games). Season 1 doesn't have is own game launcher for the 6 separate episodes; you have to launch each episode individually. Is there a way in LaunchBox I could just have one icon for Season 1, and when clicking on that, it'd open another window that contained the 6 icons for the individual episodes? Granted, this scenario isn't common, so it may not be worth the effort to incorporate it into LaunchBox, but I'd consider it a
  3. Thanks, guys. Guess I'll just Back-Up the whole thing.
  4. Reply to Brad: In the top-level directory I have 2 xml files - LaunchBox and License (I have Premium). In the Metadata sub-directory, I have one large one. In the Backup sub-directory, I have 25 files with names like this: LaunchBox.xml.backup-635628852809969171 So you're saying I only need the LaunchBox.xml and License.xml files (or I can back-up the entire LaunchBox directory)? Reply to Jason: Well, since I have a semi-insane amount of disc space on my system (14Tb), backing-up the entire LaunchBox directory wouldn't be an issue. Perhaps I'll just Back-Up the whole thing (it's a
  5. I doubt this is in the correct Forum, but I didn't know which one to pick. Anyway, which directories and/or files should I Back-Up, so I can re-install LaunchBox (e.g., PC rebuild) without having to manually add all my games in again?
  6. I have a game (Simutrans) that isn't in TheGamesDB. When I try to add it to LaunchBox, it only finds "[TheGamesDB] Smithereens (Magnavox Odyssey 2) (1/1/1981)". Is there a way to add it to TheGamesDB, so if others try to add it to LaunchBox, it'll be there? Websites: Simutrans or Simutrans at SourceForge
  7. Most of my games show artwork from the game itself in the background when they're selected. However, some of them (such as Antichamber, Sid Meyer's Civilization: Beyond Earth, Grim Fandango Remastered, and Tropico 5, to name a few) show random artwork in the background, from my own 'desktop backgrounds', instead of artwork from the game itself. What's up with that? Any assistance in how to get the 'games in question' to show their own artwork in the background when selected would be appreciated. Thanks.
