  1. Hey guys! Im importing all my mame roms and everything is going great except theres a few instances where I want to have seperate icons for 2 differant versions of the same rom. I know I can right click on the rom to play whichever version but thats not what Im looking for. Specifically, in this instance, I want to have an image for Street Fighter II: Championship Edition, and an image for Street Fighter II: Rainbow Edition (a bootleg of Championship Edition). How can I seperate them? Thanks for your help!!
  2. Hey guys! Ive been importing alot of NES games and Ive had a few that cant get videos because of Emumovies not recognizing it. Im sure its because these particular games have slight variations in title depending on where you look. What do you guys do to get videos for these games. It looks like you cant download games individually from the Emumovies site, so is everyone downloading the entire video catalog and just picking out the few that dont match through Launchbox? If theres another way please let me know. Thanks! A few of the games are: Town & Country Surf Designs II: Thrilla's Surfari The Simpsons: Bart vs. the Space Mutants Cyber Stadium Series: Base Wars G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor (has a video but its the wrong one. Its the same video as the other NES GI Joe game, lol)
  3. That's also a good idea. The only downside I see to this is the really long download time since you will be downloading videos for all steam games you own and not just the games you want.
  4. Thank you! Thats better than no video at all, lol. Better get started.
  5. After testing multiple imports at the same time it seems to work ok. However, because its not using the Steam importer its not downloading the Steam videos. Is there a way to get the Steam videos without using the Steam importer?
  6. I didn't realize you could import multiple shortcuts at once! If that' the case then that does make it alot easier! Not having the games installed wasn't really the issue. It's mainly I didn' want alot of the games that I didn' think I would ever play. However a visual record of the games I would like to potentially play would be nice. Installing every game that I could potentially want to play could be space prohibitive especially when you factor in modern AAA games.
  7. Thanks for the suggestion. That does work, however having to do it a few hundred times can get kinda tedious, lol. Also it requires that all the games be installed. Thats what Im going to do for the time being though. Thanks again.
  8. You could have every game you own shown with a check box next to it not selected. That way all you would have to do is put a check next to the ones you do want imported. Really fast and easy. As it currently is you have to hand delete every game you don' want and then you'll have to do it all over again every time you get a new game you want to import. Sorry if I wasn' clear in my original post about deselecting games. I was thinking along the lines of a check box with a deselect all button kinda like when we scrape for images, box art, etc...
  9. Thanks for the suggestion. The problem with this is if you have hundreds of games and only want to import a hand full, it will take you a long time to delete the ones you don' want. Also, any time after that when you get a new game you want to import you would have to go through the massive deletion process again.
  10. Steam achievement support would be really nice too. Not as high a priority as importing options, but still pretty nice.
  11. Any chance in a future build we can get more support for importing Steam games? As it is you can only import your entire library or nothing. It would be really nice if you could select what games you want imported to Launchbox or at the very least a way to deselect the games you dont want. I have about 800 games in my Steam library and I really only care to import about 250 of them. I know you can import games individually one at a time but this takes forever, and you have to have the games installed. Launchbox is awesome! Keep up the great work!
  12. That does help me some. The only problem is this won't import games that are not currently installed. If you use the normal Steam importer it will import the entire library weather the game is installed or not. Thanks for your response
  13. Hey guys. Is there way to import Steam games without having to import your entire library? I have almost 700 games in my library and alot of them I have no interest in ever playing. I'd like to be able to keep my Launchbox clean with only games I enjoy. Thanks for your help!
