  1. Just a heads up, the Atari ST folders are empty (no pngs) in the current download. Thanks!
  2. Whats the name of the rom, and also did you scrape as Super Nintendo Entertainment System. I notice your platform name is "Nintendo SNES". It's always better to use the launchbox official names for systems.
  3. Need more info. What systems are you trying to boot? Are you using Rocketlauncher? Are the systems set up correctly in Associated Platforms? Did you change anything recently?
  4. It's already possible, but it's a bit of work. You can just add the other versions as additional apps to the game. For instance I have Resident Evil HD Remake, but Resident Evil on the PS1 shows up as an additional app to that game, so I can launch either from the Remake menu.
  5. Hey everyone! Does anyone know if someone has replicated the bezel/overlay that nintendo is using on it's NES/SNES games on the Switch? Looks pretty good. Can it be replicated?
  6. Rocketlauncher will automatically generate M3Us, at least for PS1.
  7. I just use the clear logo and backgrounds from the SNES version. No reason not to, right? However, those boxes do look awesome.
  8. Yep, that absolutely did the trick! Thanks! I don't fully understand command lines so I was pasting the entire command under Default CLP on the above screen, and on the associated platforms screen. Thanks a million!
  9. I'm in the process of dropping it now, not completely, but for most systems. It's an amazing program, but as mentioned before, with the lack of updates, its no longer staying ahead of the curve and launchbox has caught up in most areas. There's only two things I can't replace: the way RL handles dosbox allows me to keep my exodos set zipped, and the only way I can get the MESS 2015 core in Retroarch to work is through RL (which is no great loss as I'm using MAME proper now anyway, but its worth noting). Its taking me a lot longer than I thought to move my systems over to launchbox because I have a ton of systems and setting the command lines for MAME is time consuming, mostly because of that damned MAME naming convention haha. I actually had to use the RL Module to get many of the systems names matched to the MAME names. Beyond that, as noted, the bezel support is great, but I use RA and MAME for most things so that isn't as important to me. I will say using MAME for non-arcade systems is actually easier in RL because the work has been done for you in the module, but troubleshooting in most cases is much easier without RL and the extra layer to sift through. One other thing I noticed that RL doesn't actually capture all of the systems Retroarch can actually emulate. I haven't been keeping up with the latest module/news, but I was surprised to learn of a few systems that had dedicated cores that aren't an option in Rocketlauncher at least with my version of the module. I know you can just add the system yourself, but thats essentially the same as adding to launchbox and at this point just double working. OH and speaking of Retroarch, keeping up with the massive amount of config files I need is much simpler without rocketlauncher altering the config directories. Just my two cents.
  10. Hi! I followed your directions but I can't get this launching through launchbox for the life of me. No matter what I do I'm getting an error "Unrecognized content on command line". I used the command line above, launchbox default, checked and unchecked don't use quotes and every variation I could think of. Any idea what I'm doing wrong here? Thanks!
  11. I google searched the forums but I used "Apple II" as the search, not "Applewin". Thanks for the redirect on this old thread. Works like a charm!
  12. When using the fullscreen command, how do you exit the emulator? The only way I can get it to close is by pressing the windows key and closing from outside of it. Thanks!
  13. So I've become enamored with the idea of using the playlist feature to create collections, series, franchises etc. It seems like it should be easy enough, but I'm running into a bunch of problems. I just wanted to get some outside opinions. Problem 1: Rereleases. Using Resident Evil as an example, theres the HD release to contend with. For many games theres also the multiplatform releases to contend with. Possible Solution: I think I've contented myself with the idea that the "best" version based on personal preference should feature in the playlist, and all other versions should be added to that entry as additional apps. Thoughts? Problem 2: Spin offs, and prequels. There's something attractive to me about chronological order, but again using Resident Evil, Resident Evil 0 came out later, but is a prequal to the first one. Would you use chronology here, just in terms of where it appears in the playlist, or would you go by intended narrative order? Resident Evil also has a few light gun shooters. And when you think about games like Super Mario, the spin offs are ... particularly daunting as some spin offs have formed other franchises. This is really where I hit the wall. If you wanted to make a resident evil collection playlist, would you include the light gun games? And further, where would they appear in the list? Chronologically, by narritive (if possible), or just kind of pushed to the back? Any other ideas or ways to organize would be appreciated! Thanks! Edit: So far this is my list specifically for resident evil but I hope to glean some best practices from this venture. I'm thinking I'll just leave the shooters out as if they are important enough to me they should warrant their own collection entry. This is based on narrative, not chronology: Resident Evil 0 Resident Evil (1) Resident Evil 2 Resident Evil Code Veronica Resident Evil 3 Resident Evil 4 Resident Evil Revelations Resident Evil 5 Resident EVil Revelations 2 Resident Evil 6 Resident Evil 7 Shooters: Resident Evil Survivor Resident Evil Survivor 2 Code Veronica Resident Evil Dead Aim Others: Resident Evil Gaiden ? Resident Evil Outbreak (&File #2)? Resident Evil The Umbrella Chronicles? Resident Evil The Darkside Chronicles? Resident Evil The Mercenaries 3D? Resident Evil Operation Raccoon City (Non-cannon hypothetical)? Umbrella Corps?
