  1. I mostly use Bizhawk, but it doesn't happen every time I use it. Not sure if it happens with other emulators. I'll try keeping track.
  2. Sometimes, when coming out of games, the LaunchBox window has grown to cover the Windows taskbar. If I hit the Maximize button on the title bar, it reverts to its regular size. I've been having this issue for a while now, but I don't see any patterns, and I can't figure out how to reproduce it. Does anyone else experience this? Can it be fixed? Thanks!
  3. Has anyone messed with this? It plays original music from many arcade machines and quite a few old Japanese PC games. It's no fun getting it up and running, but once it works, it's pretty amazing.

    ScummVM MIDI

    Anyone have tips for getting the best MIDI experience in ScummVM on Windows? Which drivers? Which soundfonts? Thanks!
  5. Thanks for the help. I didn't realize what I was seeing is a blurred box image. But my problem isn't so much the blur. I have the background set to a custom image, and yet when I select a game, it's changing to the box image. That's new behavior and I can't figure out how to turn it off.
  6. Today I ran LB for the first time in a few weeks and updated to the latest beta. Now when I select a game, my background changes to a blur of colors. How can I turn this off? I'm using the Old Default theme.
  7. Sorry for the slow reply, I don't log in much these days. Just pass the full path of the file to gargoyle.exe, it works fine.
  8. Sorry about that, I wasn't aware there were issues with PGP. I used it for years and never had trouble.

  10. This is why I use clear logos. Same aspect ratio regardless of the system.
  11. Still hoping someone can offer some tips on how to get this to work. Thanks.
  12. I really don't like the new theme. Thanks for keeping the old default intact. Is there a way I can back it up in case it goes away in future updates? It works really well with Clear Logo art
  13. 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)
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
  16. You're a rockstar. Thanks! Now I can tidy up my collection with ease
  17. 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
  18. 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?
  19. 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
  20. I don't like Cave shmups either. Not because they lack substance - they're just too damn hard 😛
  21. 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.
  22. 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!)
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
