  1. I am confused. I can install and run Diablo 1 and 2 on windows 7 with no issues at all? And had none with both games on XP either... As a matter of fact, XP was the OS I played both games on to begin with? Of course my XP was 32bit, but my Windows 7 is 64bit. Edit:Oh, I see. Xp virtual machine. My confusion. A bit tired here sorry.
  2. It is so nice having a dev who listens and tries to fix things. Wish all devs were as supportive.
  3. I'll keep experimenting. Edit:After I think. But see above.
  4. I'm afraid I can't help because I just did the same things in a different order and Launchbox didn't crash strangely enough.
  5. Yes I can. System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added. at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) at LaunchBox.Data.DataManager.Load() at LaunchBox.Data.DataManager..ctor(Boolean bare) at LaunchBox.Program.Main(String[] args) Step by step what I did was I added two new things to PC. BattlenetLauncher.exe from Blizzard, and GalaxyClient.exe from GOG. Then in both cases (one at a time) I edited the Platform to Emulators, and then the Status to PC Client. I also edited both seperately to reflect their respective Publishers and Developers (GOG and BLizzard). Lastly I then changed the Emulators platform to Frontends using manage platforms. Upon exiting and restarting Launchbox it gave me the error again, and I had to go back to my earliest database backup to get it to launch. It either has to do with the Publishers field, the Developers field, or renaming the platform via manage platforms. Edit:I just checked. It isn't renaming the platform via manage platforms. Edit:I also just checked putting PC Client in the status field. It isn't that either.
  6. If I add that .xml file back in yes. I suppose I can try to do what I was doing before and add the fields I was adding before. Give me about 10 minutes or so...
  7. I have this game for both Gamecube and for PS2, but I've never played it before. Which version would you guys say is better if anyone has ever even heard of it?
  8. Thank you. I'm still more concerned with why my database went PFFT though... Here is the specific launchbox.xml it kept crashing on (again a 7zip renamed to zip)
  9. If anyone is interested, this is a list of most of my PC games. I'd hazard a guess I haven't added around 50 or so I've forgotten about or don't care enough about to bother with. These are the PC Games I don't currently have installed. Currently downloading F.E.A.R. Platinum from GOG, and Cities XL and Haunted House:Cryptic Graves are both steaming piles of you know what.
  10. Sorry for double posting. Tired of editing. O.k. So the image thing apppaears to be more of an issue than I thought. I was scrolling through my pc games list and all of a sudden the images for Warcraft II Battlenet edition went poof from the database too. I am currently having to redownload that as well now. My HD is in good health and I have a HD monitoring program telling me so. This seems to be related to the image based crash I posted previously. Every so often Launchbox is trying to get an image and not finding it for some reason and crashing when it can't show it. Like every so often when it reads an image it's deleting it instead or something. Or forgetting it already has it.
  11. Using the most recent xml backup Launchbox launched then crashed and gave me this: System.ArgumentException: Parameter is not valid. at System.Drawing.Image.get_RawFormat() at System.Drawing.Graphics.IgnoreMetafileErrors(Image image, Int32& errorStatus) at System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawImage(Image image, Int32 x, Int32 y) at System.Drawing.Graphics.DrawImage(Image image, Point point) at LaunchBox.Drawing.GameDetailsGui.Paint(Graphics g, Int32 yOffset, Boolean controlFocused) at LaunchBox.Controls.GameDetailsControl.OnPaint(PaintEventArgs e) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.PaintWithErrorHandling(PaintEventArgs e, Int16 layer) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WmPaint(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.Control.WndProc(Message& m) at System.Windows.Forms.NativeWindow.Callback(IntPtr hWnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wparam, IntPtr lparam) I also tried the earliest backup first and Launchbox launched but I didn't leave it running for any significant length of time before trying the last backup instead. The file I uploaded is a .7zip btw. I had to rename it to .zip because apparently the forum doesn't like .7zip or .rar files. It should handle just like a .zip from my understanding though. If not, just change the extension back to 7zip. Edit: No, I didn't do an image cleanup or anything of the sort. However a month or so ago I did change the platform on all of them to Nintendo NES from the original Nintendo Entertainment System because the default choices you have for platform names are a bit lengthy to fit nicely with a 3 tile wide game list with details pane open on my computer. I have a 5:4 ratio of 1280x1024. I deliberately chose a 4:3 24' monitor because I don't like widescreen and neither do (does?) most of my old PC games. As you can see, I've added my own custom labels before (Pc-Not Installed), and never had the images disappear from that category. However, regarding the NES images disappearing I'd bet it's because I moved them all to a new category en-masse using the group edit function, because I also noticed that my Nintendo NES category did not have a clear logo or any other logo in bigbox mode until I deliberately added one to the proper image subfolder via Tools>Edit platform. In any event I'm far more interested in why Launchbox keeps crashing on me. More edit:In case you were wondering Castlevania III is on there twice because it's 2 different roms, and I am adding pc games that are not installed by using a placeholder file for the .exe (O.k. I think I'm finally done editing my post, lol).
  12. So I updated to the latest version today, and everything seemed ok at first. After a while though it started crashing when I was updating various games to completed status. Then I noticed it had somehow lost all of the boxart for all of my NES games which I had to redownload for every NES game. Launchbox kept occasionally crashing. Then I added a few new fields. I added Frontends to platforms and to genre, and I added PC client to Status or whatever it is that lists "Imported PC game" etc. Launchbox crashed again, and now it won't load at all and keeps giving me the following error message: System.ArgumentException: An item with the same key has already been added. at System.Collections.Generic.Dictionary`2.Insert(TKey key, TValue value, Boolean add) at LaunchBox.Data.DataManager.Load() at LaunchBox.Data.DataManager..ctor(Boolean bare) at LaunchBox.Program.Main(String[] args) Don't know what to do here since even if there is a bugfix I can't launch it to update. If I have to clean install I will be a very unhappy person as I have over 1000 games I've added to Launchbox and have manually edited quite a number of the entries over time.
  13. As far as the movie library app suggestion is concerned... Lemme tell ya Jason, if you made an alternate version of Launchbox that used IMDB and/or other such sources for movie metadata rather than game data, not only would you have the best such program on the market, I'd very happily fork over another contribution fee to get it. You'd have to alter a few things, like making the category list a dropdown box so the details could take more screen and add things like actor sub panes or whatever, but seriously, I spent weeks looking for movie database software and none of it was anywhere near as usable as Launchbox. The free ones were very rudimentary, and the professional ones were both half assed and extremely pricey. The only pro movie software out there right now is soley for cataloging your physical dvd collection by either manual entry or barcode scan with your phone. Digital movie archivists get junk. Launchbox movie manager (with a few tweaks for media type) would be stellar software.
  14. Daemontools doesn't allow mounting of .zip or .rar files?
  15. It's fairly simple, but you need to use virtual dvd/cd drive software. Create an empty batch file (a text file with the file extension .bat instead of .txt and put the following lines into it. This assumes you have installed your virtual drive software into the default locatations. If you are using alchohol 52% or 120% put: @echo off "C:\Program Files (x86)\Alcohol Soft\Alcohol 52\AxCmd.exe" K: /M:%1 start "" /wait ssf.exe "C:\Program Files (x86)\Alcohol Soft\Alcohol 52\AxCmd.exe" K: /U if you are using Daemonstools, put: @echo off "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Pro\DTAgent.exe" -mount dt, 0, %1% start "" /wait ssf.exe "C:\Program Files\DAEMON Tools Pro\DTAgent.exe" -unmount dt, 0 Save this .bat file as something like SSFRun.bat into the same directory where ssf.exe is, then just set SSFRun.bat as the emulator for Saturn in launchbox. When it runs it will mount your game to the virtual drive, then tell SSF to run. After you are done, it will automatically unmount the game again.
