  1. Have you tried to change the game view? Not all views support cart images.
  2. Your guess is as good as mine. I would also say that it should take a 0.219 set to 0.220 but with that imprecise name I have no idea what it actually contains. It's definitely individual for every game and I'm honestly not that firm with MAME's naming conventions for clones and revisions so I can't really help you with that. Yes, that would be the way to do it. One important note: You have to uncheck “Separate BIOS sets” in the advanced rebuilder options, otherwise your BIOS files won’t be included in the game .zip files.
  3. That depends if you want to use a specific logo set for this theme only or if you want to set them up for all of your themes in general. If you want to set them up generally you have to put the logos under: "\LaunchBox\Images\Platforms\NAME_OF_YOUR_PLATFORM\Clear Logo". In case you want to use a specific set for Aeon MQ7 put the .png files in here: "\LaunchBox\Themes\Aeon MQ7\Images\Platforms\Clear Logo". With this method you can put all your logos in to just this single folder BUT each file has to be named exactly like you have named the platform inside your LaunchBox setup. Once you have added / replaced the logos you have to refresh the image cache for the platform wheels inside your Big Box options: You can get logo sets from the forums download section. If you want to keep using the default ones you should search for the White Trim set to find the ones you're missing. In case you want to know what set I've used in the preview images, that's the Crylen set, also available in the download section. https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/category/14-platform-clear-logos/
  4. Happy new year @RetroNi! I recently played around with the playlists feature in my setup and I must say that your clear logos are truly awesome. They make the experience with nested playlists really better in Big Box. Unfortunately, some logos are missing for a handful of new playlists that I’ve created. In LaunchBox version 11.3 (released last August) were new metadata fields added inside LaunchBox. Especially the Release Type field is really useful for me. I wanted to ask you if it would be possible to create playlist logos for this new field as well? The needed logos in question would be: DLC Homebrew Released ROM Hack Unlicensed Unreleased Additional to that I’d also like to request a logo for my own personal setup: Demos I’d also want to point out that your logos only cover the years up to 2019. Maybe it would be better to also provide logos for future years, so that you don’t need to make yearly updates for them? Anyways, thanks for your time and your already great set! Greetings Cid
  5. As far as I know it’s the default behavior of Big Box to play the game music in case there’s no video. I personally don’t use background music inside Big Box so I can only tell you to play around with the various “Auto-Play” and “Enable Background Music” options in the “Sound” section in order to get Big Box behave like you want. Can you replicate this behavior with other themes as well? I think that’s something @Jason Carr has to look into as I don’t really do anything special with video playback inside this theme. The theme was released at the end of 2017, the last update was in February 2019. I haven’t done any theme creating in quite a while because I’m working on other projects for my LaunchBox setup that I want to finish up first (and they still need a lot of work and time...). I still plan to come back to this theme sometimes in the future and completely re-do it with the Community Theme Creator. But as I said don’t expect it anytime soon. in the meantime, if anyone else here wants to pick up the torch and continue it, by all means, be my guest.
  6. I'm sorry for the confusion. My post was only referring to the release dates. As for the names you are 100% right. Now that LaunchBox 11.3 and upwards uses the game title based on the region of your ROMs it even got messier as the publisher, for example, can also differ between regions in a lot of cases. So yeah, it’s just a compromise which could only be solved by adding region-specific data fields. Yeah, we had a Google doc for it but since then Jason added the rules to the database itself. When you add a new game you have some info-symbols next to every field which tell you the rules for said field. Here's the screenshot again, showing you what I mean:
  7. Actually, that isn't true. The rules are pretty clear on this. I remember that we had a few discussions about this back when we first established the database rules and the result was that the earliest release date is the best compromise. With that said, I admit that there are tons of US-based release dates in the database. I'm not sure if it's just a remnant of the old TheGamesDB data, which was the base for the LBGDB, or if some people making up their own rules again and just put the US-region dates in there because they personally prefer it… Screenshot from the database rules:
  8. You guys are most likely using a very old and outdated version of CriticalZone because this theme doesn't use this plugin since quite a while. To fix it you should remove your old version from your themes folder and download the latest version from the download section or the Big Box theme manager.
  9. This might be helpful for you
  10. I just tried again to import my Epic launcher games and the missing games that I’ve had reported a while ago are still missing. It’s most likely a bigger issue than just a temporal hiccup.
  11. I noticed that the new edit window only shows one value for each custom fields name. My Steam games all have multiple custom fields named “Tags” attached to them but in the edit window only one of the "Tags" fields shows up. To make things worse, all the other "Tages" fields that do not show in the edit dialog will be getting deleted once you save the game entry.
  12. You can get .dat files for Wii and Wii U here: https://dats.site/custom_system_datslist.php Unfortunately these are not the actual Redump dats. These dat files are based on the latest Redump sets which were converted to compressed file formats. Filenames are identical to the normal Redump images so they should work perfectly fine with your project. PS3 and Xbox 360 dats can be found in the mobasuite.com forums.
  13. LaunchBox doesn't know what a game requires in order to run it. It just launches a file either directly or through an emulator with parameters of your choice. Everything else is up to the game/emulator itself. If you want to play flash games you really should take a look at the Flashpoint project. https://bluemaxima.org/flashpoint/
  14. Thanks for bringing this project to my attention. That's really a great idea. Even though I don’t have any immediate need for it as I already use Retroplay’s pre-patched T-En collections, I will definitely keeping an eye out on this. Especially once they start to include other kinds of hacks to it, like improvement patches, it will begin to get really interesting for me.
