  1. Hey all I have my steam games linked to LB via "Additional Apps" and then usually put something like "steam://rungameid/24960" in the Application path. This used to work like a charm but with the current LB version nothing is happening and the steam games won't launch. It used to work that way, anybody know what might have changed?
  2. I already like the next Launchbox. I just hope you will have time to implement: -An "arrange by" option as is already present in the old LB. I like to sort my games by last played -I'd appreciate a CTRL-F search function. And I believe it would be nice to just type in a name (without CTRL-F) to start a search -I'd love a middle-mouse scroll option, it would be so damn handy -Box art is a little small on my screen. I assume you plan on making the interface customizable again with changeable spacing, icon size, etc?
  3. Jason Carr said Ah, no kidding. Well, I can't say that *should* be happening, but at least we've found the culprit. Did you have "Use Any Controller" enabled? Do you mean Use All Attached Controllers? If so, nope. Also, I do not currently have any controllers connected. Will try again later to see if it actually makes any difference and report back.
  4. For some inexplicable reason the idle CPU usage is now at 10% and dropdown menus and such now lag significantly! However, I just switched off the game controller option as you suggested and app is now blazing fast again with the CPU usage <1%. Thanks for your help!
  5. I tried with a clean install with and without the original library data added and got the same result. LB uses 5% CPU on average. It's a bit of a bummer because it keeps my idle CPU clock at around 2.5Ghz at all times instead of an avg of about 1.7Ghz when LB isn't running. Let me know if I can help you out with this.
  6. Thanks for the input. I'm using LB with about 200 games and everything is installed on SSD. It's got nothing to do with the newest version as I've plugged in my backup HDD and tried it with version 4.8 Same result. It uses around 3.5-5.5% of CPU on a 3570k @ 4.2Ghz (dunno if the percentage is relative to the max clock...) at all times, even when minimized. The only other thing I get is about 2-3 hickups when I scroll through my whole library. It does not make a difference whether I attribute 500MB or 4GB or RAM to LB. LB never crashes, though, and I only get a 0.25sec or so delay when alt-tabbing, so that is fine too. I will try a clean install now and report back later.
  7. Thanks, but it is all on SSDs here...
  8. Ever since the update yesterday (and maybe before that already, I'm not sure) LN is consistently using 5% of my CPU while doing nothing. Also, scrolling through the library now feels laggier than before (although it's not THAT bad). Any idea what caused this?
  9. I agree with both of you. The movies app should only happen once the gaming part is in a 100% complete state. Also, I would probably hire additional developers and then turn the movie catalogue app into a fully paid program. But that's just my two cents. Once I start working in January I will probably donate more money to this project.
  10. Yeah I ran into issues with that and now it seems I've edited my post too many times ;)

  12. That works, but not when you show all games at once --> they will show up twice if you have two entries for that one particular game.
  13. Hey I recently became a premium member and I have to say I'm a huge fan of this app! It's so much better than steam it's almost unreal lol. Over the last week I've written down a few features I'd maybe like to see in future versions. None of them are essential, but they would be nice to have. -Secondary application path --> it would be nice to add a secondary application path for those of us who might have one particular game from two sources (say gog.com and steam) in order to avoid duplicate entries. As of now there is a workaround since you can simply use the 'Configuration Application Path' for this purpose. Still, it would be nice if the client asks you which version of a game you'd like to launch when you double click a particular game icon. -Middle mouse scroll --> I'd love to see an option where clicking the middle mouse button somewhere in the app allows you to scroll through your games much like in a web browser. Also, being able to manually increase or decrease in app scroll speed somewhere in the menus would be nice. -Additional side bar options--> It would be cool to be able to select more than one selection criteria, say maybe 2-3 at once. -Customizing 'Arrange By' --> The Arrange By is full of menu items I never need. Would be awesome if we could select which ones show somewhere in the menu to give you a quicker overview. Likewise, it would be nice if we could optionally rearrange the 'arrange by' submenu and maybe put it on the left side just below the sidebar (yes, I realize that there might not be enough space though). -Show Details --> the hovering 'show details' submenu is still kinda glitchy. It you set it 'on hover' it pops up too late (others might disagree --> delay option in the menu) and then always shows the information of the last game selected first before showing the right game detail information. And if you got lots of screenshots for one game and want to scroll them down, it will start scrolling down the main app window as well, so maybe you could add a separate scrollbar for that hovering details submenu. -Quicker search --> when the user types letter, they should automatically be written down in the 'search' menu and immediately show the corresponding results without the need to hit enter (similar to steam). Likewise, hitting 'esc' or clicking elsewhere in the app should clear the search field. Alternatively, hitting 'tab' could activate the search field. -Additional fullscreen options --> fullscreen mode is lacking access to 'details' and 'arrange by' buttons. -Full movie support --> maybe for later, but this would make for an awesome movie library app!! That's pretty much it really. If you want more input, let me know.
