    Yeah, that does seem at least possibly feasible, but I think the first priority would be to support multiple save states. Until we can support multiple save states, there's really not much use for screenshots. I'll put it on the list though.

    Multiple Saves states will be awsome. Glad it's up high.  Doesn't Retroach have a automatic screenshot feature when making a save state? 

  2. Pause features work great and they just seem to work out fiddling like with Rocket.  Saving and loading the save Stat will that be upgraded to having the option to make multiple and pick from a list. 1 thing I see missing.

    Pause screen development is coming along well, but the next beta probably won't be out until some time next week. The first beta will be very minimal on features, and we'll look to add various things after that. My initial goal is to support Retroarch and MAME, and just get the pause screens showing and hiding properly. Needless to say, the first beta won't blow you away, similar to the first beta of startup screens.

    Sounds great personally I was pretty impressed with the first release of the start up screens.  Support for more emulators later is that on you alone or something the community can do with plug ins?...

    xbox one x is no doubt the best upcoming gaming console by microsoft, it is capable of 4k support and compatible with xbox 360 games, comes with 2 TB internal storage and so on.

    Upcoming? It's been out for a while now. Next Gen is probably out next year maybe this year bit I doubt it.

    Whatever you say Damien. I wouldn't want to cross you ;) But if I had pause screens, I would drop RocketLauncher and then go back to using the emulators overlays/bezels or use RetroArch like I do on my Pi setup.

    Pause Screens is my most anticipated as well.  But I'm sure @Jason Carrhasn't forgotten just need to be patience.


    BUT I gotta ask why the "Whatever you say Damien. I wouldn't want to cross you" comment?  All he said is he also wants it.  Sorry seems weirdly snippy for no reason.

  6. Very Cool Very Cool Indeed. 

    seems like everything i can think about is already on the todo list. maybe complete or almost complete clear logo packs could be downloaded and applyed to a theme like @viking huge SilverRing project.

    Gotcha. To be honest I have seen that before, but it's been a very long time so I forgot about it. I think the corrupted image cache issue is just a really rare occurrence so I haven't been able to pin it down. I'm glad you're at least squared away for now. I need to remember to suggest that people clear the image cache if that suddenly run into performance issues like that.

    The fix seemed to be specifically deleting the folder and letting Bigbox create it from scratch.

    This could be because you force repopulated the cache or cleared the cache. I'm not really sure what's going on or what happened, to be honest. There have been zero changes to anything related to the image cache, so I really doubt there's a real problem there.

    The only thing I can think of is that VLC was upgraded to 3.06 recently; did you upgrade from 9.3 or a 9.4 beta?

    As for all the video playing issues seem to be resolved.  The image cache seemed like it was broken I think that slowed things down because it kept caching even if I forced it, it would go all the way but if I ran it again it would take just as long and not just speed through.  I delted the entire folder and it works again now so at some point I guess it got corrupted. 

  9. I tried to say retry a couple of times and now it starts up again.  A lot of weirdness although most of it seems gone now. But the image cache doesn't seem to work.  When i force populating it goes all the way but if I hit it again it goes just as slow like it doesn't work normally when everything is cached it would just speed through in a few seconds.

    @ALIE Hmm. Any chance it could be a fluke? Have you tried rebooting?

    Seems like it could be but now something truly strange and not sure if it's even related happened. 

    First I tried rebooting and it seemed to work. I tried switching views fast a few times and it locked up and got laggy. 

    Strange thing is now after I opened BB again I was tapping away and hits enter just as a new beta notification comes up, it updates and big box opens again very laggy still like the stress i put on it carried on.  But after I exit this time I see this message like the update failed but it still opened. 



  11. @Jason CarrHate being the barear of bad news. But the latest Bata made Launchbox completely useless it lags like it has never done not even on my old PC.  It's not just videos but scrolling, picking menus, going back, and the image cache doesn't seem to work I can force populate it over and over.  Hope the video isn't too bad I suck at filming while I using the keyboard apperantly ??



  12. sorry about the late reply been busy appreciate the answers. but now i had the time to sit down and try this again but no luck.

    gonna try to provide as much detail as possible .

    i have my games and retroarch in different folders and on different drives.

    MAME set is 0.205 ROMs (split).

    in a separate folder i have MAME 0.199 CHDs (merged) but games that doesn't need them is also black screening so i guess it doesn't matter.

    Retroach is 1.7.5 and cores has just been updated.

  13. This is already looking like its gonna beat RL. i love that it just uses fan-art for a game something the database already has a good chunk of instead of having to create folders for each game and having to put the fanart in and renaming it. 

    pretty sure this has been mentioned and answered but other then fade out. The only thing missing is universal platform specific images for games out anything. And it doesn't seem to randomize fan-art when a game has more then 1 image.. 

    But seriously very impressive first beta and the spinning disc is a nice touch ?.  and i just realized my 2 things was on the upcoming list ?
