  1. yeah derp my bind key to stop was "." so when I put full stop.... 2021-08-03 23-50-35.mp4
  2. Unfortunately it didn't create a duplicate xml it just didn't overwrite the data properly, but I see what your saying and at the same time I don't want to keep checking when adding a system if the correct data is being kept or not.
  3. No plugins or third party apps, just a fresh install of the latest LaunchBox and it was the first platform imported and edited

Import Games Folder: 1st Import: Opened LaunchBox and imported the folder, it only imported 70
