  1. If I recall from trying to setup Hatari myself, it requires a bios, do you have that in the systems folder? the file is called tos.img https://docs.libretro.com/library/hatari/ That page has some more info, also states: The plain ST mode only works with TOS 1.00, 1.02, 1.04, or 2.06. STE mode requires any of the TOS versions 1.xx or 2.xx. TOS 3.0x is for TT, and TOS 4.0x is for Falcon. Hope this helps, Atari ST is next on my list to setup again myself but I only have ipf files which are all mostly (?) copy protected.
  2. Yes, usually it works exactly like that, but I'm ot passing the rom file to launchbox and letting launchbox control the emulator launching, I'm passing it a 'none of the above' batch file that executes a download of the rom file from Google drive then launches the emulator for the correct system. So all my files are named something like 'game.bat' Because this file doesn't have (Europe) or (USA) in the name, prioritisation doesn't (appear) work. It seems that prioritisation only works based on the name of the file being imported, where it should perhaps check the name of the game. I know I probably sound confusing but I think prioritisation should be checking the name of the game, no matter where that name comes from, is it the rom file or the folder? (because launchbox allows you to use folder names to determine the name of the game instead of the rom file) I know this is a fringe case, I understand if it doesn't get fixed, I just feel that this little weird way that I do this has highlighted perhaps a little piece of code that works slightly differently than intended or could be tweaked at some point to make launchbox more consistent in operation (just on the odd chance that someone else uses folder names instead of rom names for their files?) an example to that may be, folder name = centipede (USA) -> file name = centipede.a78. Second folder = centipede (Europe), filename = centipede.a78. In this example, from how I understand it, LaunchBox would choose the Europe folder over the USA folder even with USA as priority because the rom file doesn't contain a region. Of course I might be wrong and its only broken when you pick 'none of the above' option when importing
  3. Can you please click EDIT on the emulator section (under where it says Sega Mega Drive) so we can see how the emulator is setup?
  4. Thanks for the quick reply Jason, much appreciated. I can only assume that LB is defaulting to launch the (Europe) folder for each rom as it is alphabetically first in the list (over USA) I guess this is the price for doing things weirdly within LB. I totally understand that LB _should_ import the games from all regions if you drop the files in, or have them in the folder to be scraped, I just think it would be a good idea and help to maintain consistency if (when selecting user folder names) the same logic was applied to the prioritise region option as though it were an actual rom and launch the rom for the region selected (I hope this makes sense) - I stress that this is obviously not an important fix, nor am I expecting you to drop everything to address this, I just wanted to point this out and make this suggestion. Thank you for all your hard work! Kind regards, much love ❤️
  5. @Jason Carr - Do you think that the function that checks if the rom file has the (Europe) / (USA) details in the filename can be modified to include folder names if LB is pulling the game name from folder name instead of the (imported) file name ? edit - Or changed to check the game name, no matter its source?
  6. Thanks @neil9000 it seems that the issue is how I have the files setup. I have written batch files that download the rom from my google drive and then run the emulator. Launchbox acting are purely the frontend for everything. It seems that even using "Use folder names as game name" doesn't allow LB to use Regional Priorities if the file name of the file that is imported into LB doesn't have (Europe) or (USA) in the title. (my files are named script.bat) I'll probably have to just delete all the european folders.
  7. On a brand new installation of 9.9 I imported my mixed region batch of Atari 7800 games. I'm using retroarch to launch the games which requires a region specific BIOS for USA / Europe Region priorities were preset (before import) to North America and United States. Europe was not ticked. After importing the games and trying to launch them, they are picking up the European rom file and the game doesn't work because I have the USA bios. I can right click the rom and choose Play (USA) Version and the game works. Is anyone else experiencing the same issues? I haven't messed with regional settings since 8.something and I think it worked okay back then.
  8. @pipes78 Just for info, I've pushed a change to the mednafen_wswan_libretro core that emulates Benesse Pocket Challenge V2 so you can use this core in Retroarch to run the games.
  9. Have you tried using Retroarch - and using the Bandai Wonderswan core? (mednafen_wonderswan_libretro.dll) I can get Benesse Pocket Challenge games to start, but play, well, that's another story. My japanese is rubbish but using google translate on my phone, it seems to go through the programmes relatively fine. I had to change the file extension from .PC2 to .WS to get it to start. here's a video of it running Just a quick and nasty capture, nothing special. https://youtu.be/Djsb6QN_h8o
  10. Sorry, didn't reallise posting in the download section would create a new topic
  11. Version 1.1

    19 downloads

    I've created two batch files the first one, copy.bat simply copies the second file, check.bat into every sub folder in the directory it runs in. (I copy both files then run it from d:/launchbox/games/sony - playstation 2) BEFORE you copy the create file into every folder, EDIT it and make sure the paths are the same that you use, if not, you will NEED to change them. Ok, second file, check.bat, I use this as the rom file, import it into LB and choose "use folder name" when the option appears. I have all the PS2 games as folders so, for example, Gran Turismo 4 is : D:\LaunchBox\Games\Sony - Playstation 2\Gran Turismo 4 (USA) and it has a check.bat file inside it. The batch file will check the directory it runs from to see if there is a .ISO or a .BIN file present, if not, it will download it from your remote storage location (I use my google drive to store PS2 roms) You would have to mount your google drive using rclone or something similar, so it has a drive letter, and again, check the settings of the batch file to make sure the location is correct. In my case, for GT4, the location is : Z:\redump\Sony - Playstation 2\Gran Turismo 4 (USA) and therein lies a .ISO file. It will give you an option to download to local storage and once complete, will display a message and exit. You can play the game by running it again from within launchbox. NOTE - If you import your games this way, you then need to mass edit the emulator field and leave it BLANK otherwise it tries to use an emulator to run the batch file, which won't work. Any issues whatsoever, please post and i'll check, but it worked perfectly for me so far, 1800+ ps2 games in my library but it only downloads the ones I want to play

It now gives you the option to run the game once downloaded instead of exiting. If you have already downloaded it, you can copy both files to the PS2 folder and run copy.bat again ps2_rd1.1.zip
  14. I'm using ePSXe at the moment purely for testing load times from Google Drive, but will likely switch to RA I just confirmed that sorting the files by name solved the issue with LB using the last disc as the launch disc. Sorting alphabetically A-Z Disc 1 became the launch disc
