  1. that seems like an Herculean task the folder structure is way different same goes to the Manage Platforms option
  2. there is anyway to import media from hyperspin (roceklauncher) i know there is a way to use the config files but i dont want that i have a lot of media on hyperspin videos sound covers etc....... and i really prefer to use LB and config my favorite emu etc and mi internet conection is to slow to download all data again (2tb of emus and roms and media 512kb is my top speed) so ...... if there i no way, at least some way to copy and paste or something. thanks
  3. it seems like an acces write error try restarting just in case, if not work try disable temp. UAC, it could be a missing file to so check the error and make sure you have that file/s
  4. did you check that folder if it actually has that file???
  5. what OS are using? also you should grant access to your user, full control in permission tab is better install LB in Root under no other folder. c:\LaunchBox or D, etc
  6. xpadder support profiles so.... you could just load xpadder at windows start using a default empty profile. and when LB load the game xpadder change automatically to the game profile. I use last version of xpadder
  7. OFF Topic: yes i understand the copyrights, that is why i post the link, i am NOT pro piracy at all. but perhaps i should check the site rules regarding external links before. sorry BTW: thanks for the controls
  8. thanks is working now, it seems that the -freesize that i was using is to high but 1000 work great PDA: also i recommend using this version: http://wiwiki.wiwiland.net/index.php?title=Daggerfall_:_DaggerfallSetup_EN it has a lot of fixed content and customs all in a nice installer and only required minor dosbox config.
  9. i don't now if i should post this here ..... i am having troubles installing daggerfall web version (not enough disk space with the huge install option) with minimum option work. i tried to add -freesize 614400 into dosbox cong file and in the launchbox but not work.
  10. Jason Carr said @bd00's solution is probably your only option, and is worth a shot; it's likely that it'll fix the problem. Keep in mind though that all VPN providers are not considered equal, a lot of them suck, and your performance will suffer even worse if they do. There are a lot of good ones, but there are also a lot of bad ones. I've had good luck with these guys in the past: https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ good news, right now, something go wrong with the ISP and almost all limits have been lifted, i am downloading from TGDB right now, i will download all that i can. Edit: i bit disappointed about TGDB only a few of DOS games and some have the info wrong like Zork. Edit2: The premium version has anyway to lock the size/proportions of the front covers?
  11. bd000 said Your ISP will not be able to help you, other than assigning you your own IP. If they can't do that, then you have to create your own solution. This will most certainly be a none-issue for them unless the whole town called up and complained about the same thing. Even then, if they have the monopoly, they'll probably just say "sorry, use a different site". Things will change when IPv6 is fully implemented. Am I right in assuming that you have called your ISP and requested a personal static IP and they said they cannot do that? Also, are you on dial-up or broadband? Dial-up would explain the fact you have to enter a user/pass to connect. Are you sure you were not mistaken when you said VPN? While it is possible and small remote towns can use some very odd methods, it is unlikely. I think you will need to find your own solution. Have you tried tunnelling out yet? If not, try a VPN. Subscriptions are only a few dollars for 1 month of service so it won't break the bank to give it a try. After a breif search I found that Boleh offer a 7-day trial service for $3.70 https://portal.bolehvpn.net/order.php They are many other services out there and you will probably want to shop around if you are planning to make a VPN service permanent. But these are cheap enough to test with and they are well established. Purchase the 7-day plan and download the client. Once connected to the net using your normal method, run the client and start the VPN. (They will have several gateways, just choose the one closest to you for initial testing.) Once connected, try connecting to GDB. Run LB and see if you can scrape. Ok i will try to explain how the connection works here. an optic cable comes from a big city 250 miles from here the ISP has a "central" station from there distribute to all town using small antennas and a very old rf cable connected to a router (i think) in order to use internet i have to create a new connection then use the the name and pass that they assign me and yes i need to find my own solution. the service es really bad and ridiculous expensive 1MB for 150 u$s. They even block PSN last month, a few friends and i go to their offices not very happy, and they unlock it but now is very VERY slow. i check the site you recommended, looks great

SentaiBrad said optimus0 said SentaiBrad said optimus0 said Jason Carr said Did you figure this out, @optimus0? the GameDB thing? no, not even close, is taking forever going game by game i have more than 12gb in DOS games, not to mention NES, Sega Genesis, N64, PS2, PC, etc. Then if you are only paying for your internet service, and not a VPN service, then you should get in contact with your ISP and see how they can fix this. I presume that this isn't your first similar issue, and I would assume it wont be your last. yes did that already, NO fix, they are aware of the issue, and don't consider a problem nothing i can do with them .... :( i guess i just to give up with this program and keep using a folder with shortcuts until find another way to make TGDB work, perhaps a travel to a big city..... i don't like to travel :( Do you have other ISP options? I am really stumped as to what the hell is going on... No is the only one in town

  15. Jason Carr said Just put "Quake 1" "Quake 2" "Quake 3" "Quake 4" type titles in the Sort Title field. yes i find it in edit menu/others/ short titles
  16. Jason Carr said Yup, there's a Sort Title field in the Other tab. yes, i saw that. it arrange in the same order III, II, I, IV
  17. Small off-topic question. there is anyway to re-arrange/shorting, so the games stay in order I, II, III, IV etc?? Without changing the title of the game- From left to right is all scrambled III, II, I, IV not nice at all. :(
  18. bd000 said optimus0 said @bd000 Thanks https://www.hidemyass.com/proxy this web is not working for me i try IE, opera 12 and Firefox, it only show's a blank page. But in ToBrowser is working (allready try thegamesdb.net on Tor and...captcha) i guess my internet service provider is blocking https://www.hidemyass.com/proxy ? Try entering just thegamesdb.net - remove the https:// same result. bd000 said Unfortunately it does not work like that, there is no local scraper. You could create it yourself I suppose. You would need the game ID in the filenames I think. I can't remember the exact structure, but it is something like Directory (Game name Game ID) > Image File (Game name Game ID .jpg) Just add a game and add images manually in LB and save. Then go take a look at the images folder. It would be very time consuming unless you automated it somehow. well is no longer needed i am adding the images trough the UI and just pasting the screenshot in screenshot folder (open image folder generate the correct folder) :)
  19. @bd000 Thanks https://www.hidemyass.com/proxy this web is not working for me i try IE, opera 12 and Firefox, it only show's a blank page. But in ToBrowser is working (allready try thegamesdb.net on Tor and...captcha) i guess my internet service provider is blocking https://www.hidemyass.com/proxy ? also can somebody please send me an example folder with images inside (image name and folder structure)? i am trying to add manually but is annoying. thanks PDA: sorry to be so insistent but this program is wonderful way better than steam origins or kodi THE BEST ONE by FAR.
  20. SentaiBrad said optimus0 said SentaiBrad said optimus0 said Jason Carr said Try turning off your VPN? i connect to internet using a vpn connection with user name and password if turn that off ... no internet i test in some other friends houses and the same result. but we all are using the same internet provider and the same method to connect so...... (in fact all town use this service) Erm... so generally an ISP doesn't issue a VPN. A VPN is an external service that a user generally pays for so that their IP is routed through other servers first before reaching the desired website. For example, if I used a VPN, it would bounce to say... 4 other server locations before ending up at its destination. Unless you are paying specifically for a VPN service, you shouldn't be using one. Your ISP and your VPN are separate. This could be different in other countries... but I am fairly sure that is not a standard practice. nothing is standard practice here, here 2+2 is not 4 and green and red i can assure you is NOT yellow any way ....so no workaround? any way to change the scrapper? like gamefaqs or something? BTW thanks for your help. :) No, GameFAQ's is not support through LaunchBox because they do not offer up their content for free. Us attempting to do so, which we could, could lead to users getting banned permanently from GameFAQ's. There are reports from another front end who's users got temp banned. The Games DB was chosen, and Wikipedia added on for specific reasons. They were relatively easy and offered their stuff up for free. This is something that has been discussed in dozens of threads at this point. Other wise, if you are using a VPN, there is no way to tell what your standard experience with The GamesDB should be. They've personally been giving a lot of users trouble but not related to VPN's. Thanks i will use wiki and local metada for info and i will add manually the cover and other images, is that possible?

  23. bd000 said They could be simply blocking the ip of the vpn. Too many requests maybe. but if that were true, i will not be able to enter their web through the web browser....!! /? i tried Kodi (old xbmc) adavanced launcher addon (it work like launchbox) and all scrappers are working but TGDB (REALLY DONT LIKE kodi/xbmc) any idea? or workaround?
