  1. Here is the list of games by the way, someone compiled it on another site: http://www.listchallenges.com/1001-video-games-you-must-play-before-you-die
  2. Dolphin is an absolutely amazing emulator, I have been using it for years, and the amount of updates that are done and the monumental leaps they have made in speed and compatibility are astounding. Easily my favorite emulator!
  3. Very nice theme! I have a 4:3 screened bartop, and I would be VERY interested in this theme, great work and keep going please.
  4. That would be a really good feature!
  5. It would be interesting to try making a copy of all your LaunchBox files on the SSD (except for the games). You should find much better performance, though it might also depend on the specs of your system overall. Both my systems are pretty beefy, so the mechanical storage is definitely the bottleneck. It also depends on how many games you actually have in your collection, my laptop has a small subset of my main collection, and it is very much faster. I might try doing some real benchmarks of this when I have a chance.
  6. You will see a VERY big improvement running LaunchBox from your SSD. I have my install on my SSD with my games, videos and manuals on my mechanical drive, and I use Symbolic links to set the paths, rather than changing the paths in LaunchBox. I notice a huge speed increase in loading images as the cache is running from the SSD, I don't have any benchmarks, but it is very noticable. Have a look at this thread, it will give you all the info you need to use symlinks:
  7. OMG this is fantastic, I try to use Retroarch for everything I can, this will certainly make it easier to keep up to date.
  8. This will work fine, I have done exactly this, I ran two versions on my main PC for a while, one a stripped down collection for use on my laptop for travelling, and one my full blown setup. LaunchBox is a portable program, so all the settings are stored in the program folder, and most of the emulators are the same, or can be made to be portable.
  9. I have not used the program for a while, but I am sure there was a way to have it select all the images that were 100% match, which you could then delete all selected. Will try to have a look at it tonight.
  10. I use symbolic links in windows to achieve effectively the same goal. This way LaunchBox sees the videos as being in their default location, and windows simply redirects the path to the new location wherever you choose. I do this for videos, manuals and the roms themselves, and keep the rest of LaunchBox on my main SSD for speed. The method I use for creating them is as shown in this article: http://www.howtogeek.com/howto/16226/complete-guide-to-symbolic-links-symlinks-on-windows-or-linux/ I just do them manually via the comm
  11. Yep, been out of the scene for quite a while! But I am back again, got to get my bearings with the new forum!
  12. I used a program called "Awesome Duplicate Photo Finder", which is free, and can find images that look the same, but may be different resolutions and file types. It takes a some time, as you need to manually examine the results, but it does a great job of cleaning up duplicated images.
  13. OMG, I missed that feature being added, that is fantastic!
