  1. @sucramjd Great job on these themes as they have really help complete my teknoparrot collection. I have downloaded all your packs on the forum but I seem to be missing 2 video themes that you have made that you posted here in this topic which is Contra Evolution and R Tuned Ultimate Street Racing. Did you upload these 2 themes on the forum?
  2. Yep love that feature....been waiting on that one for quiet a while!
  3. Have you looked into LedBlinky? LaunchBox does have support for LEDBlinky which has the ability to send ultrastik maps to the U360s. They even have a "No Led" so you can use the program even if you do not have led buttons or lights on your cabinet so therefore you could just use LedBlinky just for sending maps. I have U360s myself and would love to see some integration with LaunchBox via a plugin but in the meantime using LedBlinky works as well for me. If Jason has enough interest I am sure he would consider adding it in. There is also a request on bitbucket as well to add a Ultrastik plugin so feel free to upvote it and add your comments. https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/2381/ultramap-plugin
  4. Yes the grid view spacing looks to be fixed as well as the Emumovies video priorities.
  5. I am seeing that issue up above that @neil9000 mentioned as well with various themes such as LB Galaxy, LB Plex, Lambda and Rincewind Blue but the default theme seems unaffected.
  6. I am not sure if this is a new issue in a beta or not because I have not downloaded videos in a while. But one thing I noticed today while downloading videos through Emumovies with bulk download movies and metadata tool is if a have a video theme for a particular game in the video\themes folder and not the actual video snap in the videos folder and choose "Yes but do not replace any fields or media" it will not download the video snap even though I do not have it. When I remove the video theme for a particular game from the video\themes folder it will download the regular video snap correctly. This only also happens when trying to download in bulk with more than one game as if you download one game video at a time it works correctly. So it looks like if the wizard sees a video theme in the themes folder it counts that as the video and skips it even though I do not have the regular video snap.
  7. It almost sounds like BigBox is being sent a phantom key press to end the startup video early. What controllers do you have hooked up? Maybe try disconnecting controllers if you have more that one hooked up and also uncheck "Enable all game controllers" in the BigBox options menu if you have that enabled and see if anything changes. Maybe also try to disconnect all controllers if you have the option to just use keyboard only to startup BigBox to see if anything changes.
  8. Awesome job with this. I really appreciate you taking the time putting this together and I am sure anyone that has a secondary marquee monitor will appreciate it as well because there is a lot of marquee artwork out there that is not that high of a quality.
  9. Would you happen to have a newer Pinball FX2.xml file with the metadata included? This is an older xml file that LaunchBox does not read all the metadata correctly from.
  10. If you check update to beta releases in the LaunchBox options you can update to the newest beta version where this has been fixed.
  11. In addition to what @dbinott said Rocketlauncher would be one method to use as you could just drop the ugc files in . You could also do it with LaunchBox as well using the additional app feature but you would have to do it individual by game. Another option and the one I am using now is to use LEDBLINKY. You do not have to use leds to use the program as they have a (no leds) mode which you could use to send ultrastik maps to the joysticks. LedBlinky uses .um files to send maps to the joysticks instead of .ugc files and you do not have to have a separate .um file named after every single rom as the program reads the mame.xml, and the controls.ini file to determine if a 4 way,8 way and etc. map needs to be sent to the stick. There is a few roms like Qbert and Tron however that you might need to make a custom map .um file for but the vast majority are covered.
  12. Another tip I have discovered about the Dolphin emulator is installing the emulator on a ssd drive if you have one and use any of the HD texture packs for the games. I used to have the emulator on a standard hard drive and when I moved it over to a ssd drive it loaded instantly with those games where as before it used to take about 10 seconds or so with some of those games with texture packs. Its one of the few emulators that I have seen a nice speed increase by it being on a SSD.
  13. Yes, in the BigBox options there is an option to even view play modes and you can see what the different categories are such as single,multiplayer and etc. Also make sure you have "View Play Modes" checked in the options under game details in BigBox. Also it varies by themes and different views if the coder decided to show max players or not as well in a paticular theme or view.
  14. For future reference you can drag any image into the Launchbox edit window for ease of use and just change where the arrow is pointing to in pic to what type your image is (Clear Logo) for instance and Launchbox will put it automatically in the correct folder and name it correctly also and don't forget to click ok when done so it will save as well. You can also click on the Add Image button on that same window as well but I find it easier and faster just to drag the image into that window.
  15. It is a jpg or png file,correct? Do you see the image in your edit window for that game inside of LaunchBox under Images and is it listed as clear logo?
  16. Awesome, glad you got it sorted!
  17. Yes you can always go back and scrape from emumovies at any time after the install. In my opinion you would be better off getting a paid subscription to emumovies since 10GB will be used up fairly quickly downloading videos for a large collection. I was not aware that they offered 10gb per day with a free account but you do need a emumovies account in order to download from LaunchBox.
  18. LaunchBox does show this option in the game details bar as shown in pic. Also make sure you have it enabled in the options as well.
  19. One suggestion you could do if you wanted to prioritize Steam poster over Box Front and you would not have to delete anything is just move Steam Posters to the top in LaunchBox options under the Box Front priorities like shown in this picture. Since no other platform but Steam uses Steam posters, it will not mess up your Box Front priorities for other platforms as well.
  20. 11.9 is about 6 months old right now so installing the latest 11.12 is definitely a step in the right direction toward getting your problem figured out.
  21. The new beta 2 has messed up the curved wheels views in @CriticalCid Unified theme and @Jason Carr Unified Redux theme to where they no longer curve correctly. Those are the two themes so far I have noticed. The default theme curved wheels views seem normal.
  22. I have not heard of that DIY project that you mentioned but am interested. I am not really that pleased with my Sinden lightgun and its software to tell you the truth so will check out that project you mentioned.
  23. The problem with the game wheel performance issue seems to be resolved in Beta 3?
  24. @Jason Carr @C-Beats A new issue has popped up with 11.11 beta 2. The games view in Bigbox has very severe lagging when scrolling through the wheels. The platform views doesn't seem to suffer this when scrolling through the platforms only the game views. I rolled back to 11.11 beta 1 just to confirm and that beta does not have that issue and also tested on two different machines.
  25. I just tested and I am getting no errors in the log at this time. I still think something is up however because its still not working correctly but I am not sure if it is something not right with Ledblinky , BigBox or my Ultrastik 360 joysticks. Sometimes when I choose a game and press enter to enter the game the BigBox wheel will scroll up one game entering that game instead of the game I chose. Also sometimes when I exit a game the BigBox wheel will go crazy or the choose by letter bar will appear and it will start scrolling through it like there is phantom joystick presses even though I am not touching the joystick. This only happens when I enable the ultrastiks in ledblinky. When I disable them and still have ledblinky enabled everything seems to work normal but of course making my ultrastik joystick's useless. @arzoo Does Launchbox have to have something in the code in order for the start and stop events for the Ultrastik to work correctly for the mapping?
