  1. Whew figured what was wrong. I had it set to run as admin under properties in windows. Unchecking that fixed the issue.
  2. Thanks for responding. Sorry for the late reply. I’ve since gotten the above issue resolved. I am using the dolphinbar. I’ve been having a weird issue lately where the touch cursor disappears behind the application window. I don’t know if I changed a setting or not that caused this. Any ideas how to fix this?
  3. This is awesome, awesome news. So the plan is to have Launchbox directly manage RetroArch instead of managing the cores directly (like Plex Arcade)? I would think the former should really speed up development time. It'll be incredible to see how much more powerful Launchbox becomes in the not too distant future. I'm envisioning something similar to the NES/SNES Classic Minis for filter/save state integration (with slots). I don't want to get too far ahead, but remote streaming would be incredible if it could ever be implemented as well.
  4. Oh man I was looked right at "expand selected games" and I didn't even think to click that. Haha thanks!
  5. So there are lots of threads about how to delete or merge duplicates, but I'm wondering if there's a way to display or split duplicates. I ripped my own game collection and want Super NES games in the same library as Super Famicom games. I have the same copy of several games for both platforms. I want the Super NES version of the game to appear next to the Super Famicom version of the game. Ideally, I don't want the platforms separated into different libraries. Thanks in advance.
  6. This is all awesome info. I’m definitely going to work on completely integrating Moonlight in my setup. It was so awesome streaming retroarch from the htpc in my den to the fire stick in my living room with no perceptible input lag. Really makes you wonder why anyone would pay money for Plex Arcade at this stage in the game. Dolphin is definitely tricky as certain games completely rely on motion controls. I’ll probably end up either limiting my big box build to Wii games that can be played exclusively with xinput controller profiles and ditch the dolphinbar altogether or have two separate
  7. Interesting. I’ll have to do some research. This might sound very remedial, but can any third party controller be recognized as xinput? And if you do that, Moonlight controls should work straight out of the box? Edit: And in the case of Dolphin, do you just use profiles for each game instead of using a genuine Wiimote with something like the dolphinbar?
  8. I’ve been messing around with Moonlight a bit and have been really impressed. How do you handle controller inputs on the guest device with Big Box and each emulator? Do you have bind them again using the guest device’s controller? If that’s the case wouldn’t you need separate Launchbox builds to support each guest device’s controller?
  9. That all makes sense. I’m probably misunderstanding/underestimating how much of the heavy lifting retroarch is managing in conjunction with the cores. I’ve checked out Ludo frontend (which is similar to what I’m describing), but it’s very visually minimalistic. Would be cool to see that project evolve into something more closely resembling Big Box. Could another nonstarter for this kind of project be the potential for negative attention from the big game developers? They can’t argue against developers writing software that emulates their old hardware, but I could see where they’d take issue wi
  10. That really begs the question as to why it’s not implemented by more frontend projects. There’s a libretro core for virtually every retro console imaginable now. I don’t know anything about the coding aspects, but it would seem to greatly enhance the functionality of the frontend. Launchbox is incredible at what it does now, but I’d think implementing libretro cores directly would allow for more seamless game launching and the potential for other features native to the frontend (save states and input control to name two). I imagine it being an emulator GUI on steroids while simplifying a lot o
  11. I don’t think it’s a huge deal having to manually download the cores. There’s even third party software like stellar updater that can automatically pull all the core updates from the repository for you. My bigger issue is with the way Plex is using libretro if it is in fact against their wishes. If I’m understanding correctly, they don’t want libretro cores used outside the RetroArch ecosystem?
  12. Has anyone tried streaming Big Box using any of these methods? If so, how was your experience?
  13. Interesting... Thanks for chiming in Jason. That’s really interesting to know.
  14. So Launchbox could still maintain the software as a paid service, but require users to download the cores externally? I don’t see that as a dealbreaker as long as the frontend itself was able to seamlessly manage the cores. The extra functionality like save state and controller management from within the front end makes it an intriguing option over what it is now: basically an emulator Swiss Army knife. I can imagine Launchbox being a simplified version of Retroarch with way more dumbed down menu options and all the eye candy we enjoy now.
  15. It looks like Plex is now a player in the gaming front end race: https://www.plex.tv/arcade/ I’ve been using Plex for a while and always thought it’d be a great platform for running retro games. Did not see this ever happening though. It definitely doesn’t have the eye candy of HyperSpin or Big Box, but the fact it uses libretro cores to launch adds a lot of extra functionality from within the frontend (I’ve never understood why other frontends don’t use libretro cores to bypass the whole extra layer of an ahk powered launcher). The ability to stream games is an intriguing feat
  16. The official Touchmote forum is completely dead, so I thought I'd ask this here. Is there a preferred Wiimote version to use with Touchmote? Is there a model or serial number I should be looking for? I've got two newer models with motion plus included, and I'm having issues keeping them connected when using Touchmote.
  17. Hello, Is there a quicker way to import games when you already have media in the designated folders? I've imported all my media from a separate build. I am attempting to import the games and have unchecked all media to download in Launchbox. The import process is going really slow for me though. Edit: I should mention, too, I haven't added all the media from the other PC. This is a simpler build with fewer platforms and less eye candy.
  18. I was able to find Retrohumanoid's weebly, but I can't seem to figure out where to locate his cinematic video themes. He has lots of other good artwork there though. Do you need to donate?
  19. Does anyone know where I can find RetroHumanoid's cinematic themes aside from the regular LB platform theme video download section? They don't all seem to be there. I've checked all over the place and can't find them. Thanks.
  20. Really excited about this! I own a GPD WIN and am currently using modern mini which works pretty well, but a dedicated theme that aims to squeeze as much performance as possible out of that atom processor would be awesome.
  21. Hello. I am using Big Box with my GPD WIN and am looking to improve performance. I am trying to replace background images with a plain black background when inside a platform's menu. Is there an easy way to accomplish this? Thanks.
  22. Hi all. I'm using the ModernMini theme and am trying to switch to the ReignStumble console icons. I thought it was as simple as placing the icons in the ..Themes\ModernMini\Images\Platforms\Banner directory, but that isn't working. Thanks in advance.
  23. Awesome! Thanks! Is there a way to designate a button to a controller in Big Box to open a genre list?
