  1. It's neither costly nor complicated. The Gamer-Pro is $40, and it's the only adapter you need. Just add a few $3 dongles for whatever controllers you plan to use and you're good to go. Plug and play on Windows, Mac, Linux, even Switch. You can hot-swap controllers too. I can be playing SNES with a GameCube controller, pause the game, swap out for a Dreamcast controller, and keep going. Honestly, I can't imagine it would be very enjoyable trying to play N64 games with anything other than an N64 controller... (Hori FC4 looks like a Sega Saturn controller)
  2. If you have any of those systems, why not use the original controllers with an adapter? Grab a Bliss Box Gamer-Pro kit with just the cables you need, and you'll be set. Not wireless, but nothing beats using real controllers.
  3. I have a DS4 but I'm not happy with it. I consistently have bluetooth connectivity issues. The thing just doesn't want to stay paired. But I only got it for modern games that require dual sticks. For emulation, I use original controllers.
  4. You're a rockstar. Thanks! Now I can tidy up my collection with ease
  5. Does anyone have info on file naming conventions for WHDLoad games? I'm getting mine from RetroPlay's collection. Here are some examples where I'm confused about the difference. What does the '1199' mean in these? And 'NTSC'? Manhunter2_v1.0_1199.lha Manhunter2_v1.0_NTSC_1199.lha What does 'Fast' mean? Maya_v1.4_1742.lha Maya_v1.4_Fast_1742.lha What about '1MB' and 'AGA'? MegaBall_v1.02.lha MegaBall_v1.02_1MB.lha MegaBall_v1.02_AGA.lha Do version numbers refer to different versions of the game, or different revisions of the .lha file? Millennium22_v1.3_0537.lha Millennium22_v1.4_0537.lha
  6. You both need to offer more information if you want someone to help. Do you have the ROMs and CHDs? Do you have the proper BIOS files? Is DEmul pointed at everything correctly? What happens when you try to run a Hikaro or Gaelco game from DEmul?
  7. Wow. I just discovered Out Zone. Where has this game been all my life? Here's a good guide to all the powerups: http://cdecas.free.fr/arcade/worship/outzone/bonuses.php
  8. I don't like Cave shmups either. Not because they lack substance - they're just too damn hard 😛
  9. Do you need to use Joy2key or keypadder or something to use a controller? I tried setting my gamepad up in the options menu and everything works except the d-pad.
  10. I've decided I want to limit my collecting to 2D systems with sprite-based graphics, since I enjoy playing those games so much more than 3D stuff. The majority of these systems are captured through a handful of sets, including MAME, the base No-Intro set, TOSEC Main Branch, SCUMMVM, and Total DOS Collection. The reason for this thread is to get some input on any 2D systems that are NOT represented by those sets. For example, I know there are several CD add-ons that are all 2D: Commodore - Amiga CD32 NEC - TurboGrafx-CD Sega - CD SNK - Neo Geo CD What else should I consider seeking out? (I'm not really interested in 2nd gen and older stuff. And I don't intend to collect systems that have a mix of 2D and 3D games, even if they have a lot of 2D games. Stuff like Saturn or NDS. Have to draw the line someplace!)
  11. I would love to see this implemented too. Right now, there's no frontend that makes software lists even remotely usable. MAME is a pain in the butt to navigate, MESSUI is deadly slow, and Negatron is just painful. Getting software list support in LB would be huge.
  12. Not sure if this will work or not, but you could try manually changing the game ID in the metadata.xml file located in the Metadata directory of your installation folder. Try this when LaunchBox is closed, then open it up and see if it the change sticks.
  13. Can anyone tell me if it's possible to add the front cover of the currently selected game to the details pane, centered within the red box in this mockup?
  14. Continuing a conversation with Jason from bitbucket. I just updated to the latest beta, created a new auto playlist, and it's showing up in the menu.
  15. No, the double search results isn't that big of a problem. I just like to keep things tidy, so I thought I'd see if anyone here had an idea I hadn't considered.
