  1. Can confirm the above. Have done this many times changing extention to .chd or to and from zip. Works like a charm. Just to be clear you're going into the data folder in launchbox finding the system xml and just find and replace. Recommend notepad++, it's free. Alternately, if you delete all the roms and just reimport, match to LB database but turn off all the art (you don't need to download it again) it only takes a couple minutes.
  2. So I'm running into an interesting case and sorry if this has been addressed before. I have 3 Wii U games in Launchbox, one of them works fine with Steamlauncher enabled and the Overlay works as well. Two of them won't launch with it enabled, no pop ups or anything when attempting to launch. I set the logging to verbose and let me know if you need all of that, but the only thing I can see in that log that indicates a problem is the same thing that pops up if the logging is set to "error": 2021-07-18 20:47:40 [Error] [GameLaunchingPlugin] [OnAfterGameLaunched] - An error occurred while cre
  3. This also seems like a good place / time to remind / introduce people to this LB Plugin: Basically allows you to use the Big Picture overlay (including binding custom controls etc.) to anything launched through LB/BB. In a word, its incredible. Per game controller configs for random DOS games? It's got you. Need to launch a modded version of skyrim from a seperate launcher that doesn't allow overlay support even its imported to steam? It's got you. I suspect it'll become a staple of LB on the Steam Deck.
  4. I never personally enjoyed playing handhelds.... mostly because it hurts my hands. Will this thing hook up to a TV and does it support xinput from other controllers? Anyone know?
  5. Just a heads up, Windows 10 is all about the notifications. I'm not even sure how but I get like netflix notifications news notifications all kinds of other things and these can pop you out of games, even if it says "Windows held this notification" after you close the game down, it probably didn't haha. You can try turning them off and seeing if that helps. Whats weird is that the notifications don't pop me personally out of every game or emulator, in fact, I didn't even notice it until recently when I got Mass Effect Legendary on Steam, and for some reason it was getting pushed out of fullscr
  6. Because we can use the "Scrape as" feature to essentially name systems whatever we want in Launchbox, it might* be the case that updating the scrape names is low on the priority list.
  7. Yes. I didn't know cso could be used for ps2 but as I understand its not lossless compression. Gzip is. Meaning if you compress to CSO you lose some of the data which to me is a no no even if it saves more space. Both CSO and Gzip are lossless* .rvz is newer and equally lossless and it's compression level is pretty excellent and is fully supported by dolphin so no need to decompress. I'm working on a 1g1r gamecube set I'm currently at almost 600 games at 470 gigs total for the full set. Edit: I should note that if you gzip your ps2 games, on first launch with pcsx2 it'll take an ex
  8. Just a heads up, PS2 should use gz (gzip) and gamecube should definitely be using .rvz now. No need to decompress either.
  9. Sorry if this was covered already but is there any reason this wouldn't work with a windows 10 app? I only have one game (minecraft) through the windows store, imported to launchbox as a shortcut .lnk file and if Steamlauncher is on, launchbox doesn't do anything when I try to launch it. No error, no movement at all. Not a huge deal since honestly if I ever want to play it I usually don't bother opening LB to launch it, but curious.
  10. Another oldie, best art I could find. Note that the LB database entry: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/96278 is slightly incorrect. The game is listed as Tex Murphy: Under a Killing moon, but the game title is just "Under a Killing Moon". May be splitting hairs but the below box doesn't include the Tex Murphy part. Wiki: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Under_a_Killing_Moon
  11. Might be a tough one. 'The Roach Game' isn't a part of the official game title, fyi which is "Bad Mojo", but either way works for me. Thanks! Link to the LB Database Entry: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/images/17036
  12. I've filled in a bunch of platform data by hand in my build. I'm not sure what the process is to get them actually added to the database, but I'm willing to help in any way I can. (I'm not so good with making art, don't use photostop, but I figured out how to use Windows Paint to cut out and put transparency behind images for devices.)
  13. Not me! But I have this "weird friend" who will buy a game and spend so much time messing around with the controls until they are *perfect* that he won't even feel like playing the game. It's me. I do this.
