  1. This is 99.9% what I am looking for! I'm working on a new emulation setup and I'm happy to see this! Good job!
  2. Thanks Jason, Not a huge deal if it ever gets fixed/changed or anything just curious but I'll try a custom theme and if not no worries - goes with my system theme anyway. Thank you for the quick reply.
  3. Here's a pic of how I have Launchbox setup, it's not major...but anyway where it says "Title" and "Region" you can change the color? If not can an option be added? Thank you so much again for making tweaks to the list view some time ago! This is my setup and I just love it.
  4. That first feature I'm just ecstatic and over the moon about. I've been wanting this feature for a long time now. I use and prefer the list view and this is just so much awesome.
  5. Can't wait to check it out. I'm over the moon and ecstatic that you added the ability to remove fields in the list view. Now this made launchbox the perfect front end for my personal needs!
  6. THANK YOU!!!! Thank you for adding the ability to remove columns/fields in the list view.

    Honestly the I7 3770 will be faster than the AMD FX. How it stacks up to Ryzen and emulation I wonder but in my main machine I have an i5 2500k and my HTPC has a i5 7600 (non-K) and it works really well. I posted the specs here but I later upgraded from a Kaby Lake Pentium to a Kaby Lake i5 and even the Kaby Lake Pentium was good enough for anything PS2 or below.
  8. I think the RA core is still a bit behind on a bunch of things but the standalone is still a lot better.
  9. Just was wondering what others were doing - it works fine for me but I only made this because I noticed one game didn't show up. Either I didn't do it right or forgot it but no biggie, got it fixed.
  10. I'm talking about systems like the Sony Playstation and Sega Saturn and not systems like the PC or Amiga. For these systems I use Mednafen or the Retroarch port. I keep my ISO images in a folder for each system and a sub-directory with my games on multiple discs and use the .m3u file I have created with the emulator or Launchbox when I import them and swap normally in the emulator. Some games on multiple discs I don't do this like the Command and Conquer games as one disc will have the GDI campaign and another the NOD campaign, Resident Evil 2 and Rival Schools as a few examples
  11. Redid the wiring like I said with moving the hard drive. Was a VERY tight fit but glad to make it work - was really worried about the USB header! You be the judge if it is cleaner though. Good thing before I took the system apart I realized something: part of the IO shield was under the USB 3.1 port near the USB Type-C port so I couldn't use the port. Took the system apart to fix that. I am having problems with my AV Receiver and TV - on-board graphics work fine but with the GPU it doesn't play nice with my AV receiver, hooked up to the TV it works okay though but due to no optical out I will need a soundcard, have one in my main PC I'll remove, won't miss it and have the PC hooked up via optical to the receiver and HDMI to the TV. Since I don't have the soundcard installed yet I don't have the header hooked up. I might move the cable now so it's easier to place when I install it though. EDIT 2 or 3: Moved audio header cable so I can easily hook it up to sound card in future. EDIT who knows what: Added sound card and put new thermal paste on CPU.
  12. For the price I paid for the G4600, I could get the G4560 for the same price - right now there's a lot of demand for the G4560 for some reason. It could be mining or the price to performance ratio but overall I wanted it now instead of later so I got the G4600 which is faster and 2400mhz ram to match. The GPU isn't great for mining but I needed a low profile half height variant and I'm sure there was a small premium for that and limited availability. Will try rewiring tomorrow if I can. So far running okay with out the GTX 1050 which shipped last night and I should have it tomorrow, hopefully after work! The on-board graphics are not great by any means but for now doing the job. Mednafen Saturn runs really well and I tried Darius Burst and it was running like a champ. While it is low profile and my upgrade options are limited currently to processor and more memory (can't go faster though) I'm fine and having a blast compared to my last HTPC which was overkill.
  13. It's so far pretty beastly despite being only a dual core. Having more fun with this and spending more time with it than the other HTPC's I had where I went all out - kinda nice to have something a bit limited so I can spend more time playing games than messing around tinkering. Ahhh. Tried Mednafen Saturn and it ran pretty good no problem. Got a LOT to setup emulation wise but copied my roms over to the 3TB drive and some Steam games are downloading now. Wish the 24-pin wasn't so bulky though. I might try the hard drive cage I removed in the future though, might help with wiring some more. Still no GPU Once prices go down and the LGA 1151 is a bit deprecated I will upgrade to a discounted quad on this platform.
  14. Got the majority of the parts and built it after work - got to leave a little early due to weather. I didn't forget! Wiring a little messier than I wanted though but still not half bad. About to install windows but finished building it. Waiting for the GPU to come but overall it's all built.
  15. I asked about how the Pentium on the LGA1151 socket fares for emulation, finally got ordered all the parts, here's the specs: Intel Pentium G4600 Kaby Lake Dual-Core 3.6 GHz MSI B250M MORTAR LGA 1151 Motherboard Gigabyte Geforce GTX 1050 Ti OC Low Profile 4GB (will be here around the 20th to 22nd) Kingston Technology HyperX FURY 2400MHz DDR4 Non-ECC CL15 8GB (2x4gb sticks) Crucial MX300 M.2 2280 275GB SATA III Enermax Triathlor ECO 450W 80 PLUS Bronze Certified PSU ASUS 802.11ac Wireless-AC1200 Bluetooth 4.0 PCIe/mPCIe Adapter Silverstone Milo ML03B Case HGST DeskStar NAS 3.5" 3TB 7200 RPM (from a previous build) Going low profile due to space and I always have more fun/use from lesser components go figure. Plus I enjoy desktop style cases. Once I get into higher end components I'll be wanting to overclocking and messing with it and spend less time playing games. That's why it is a bit limited in some ways. Hoping to get all the parts sans GPU next week. I was going to go for the G4560 but the price was way too high still due to demand and I wanted to get this built asap so I spent a few extra bucks and got the G4600. The iGPU should fare okay until I get the GPU the following week.
