8-Bit Processor

8-Bit Processor (3/7)



  1. Hi, Just updated to 8.7 and I'm getting a problem with BB crashing on startup. Launchbox opens ok though. I get the following message (Inner Exception) External component has thrown an exception. App: Big Box Version: 8.7 Type: System.Runtime.InteropServices.SEHException Site: Int32 XAudio2Create_(Void*, Int32, Int32) Source: SharpDX.XAudio2 at SharpDX.XAudio2.XAudio28Functions.XAudio2Create_(Void* arg0, Int32 arg1, Int32 arg2) at SharpDX.XAudio2.XAudio28Functions.XAudio2Create(XAudio2 xAudio2Out, Int32 flags, Int32 xAudio2Processor) at SharpDX.XAudio2.XAudio2..ctor(XAudio2Flags flags, ProcessorSpecifier processorSpecifier, XAudio2Version requestedVersion) at (SoundManager ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Wpf.Audio.SoundManager.Initialize() at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Wpf.BigBox.ViewModels.MainViewModel..ctor() (Outer Exception) Exception has been thrown by the target of an invocation.

  2. Hi guys, I have some 3DO files that are all 7zipped. They are img format with cue files. They load fine in RA but via Launchbox they don't unless I remove the cue file. I was hoping there was a way to configure Launchbox to launch the game via the img file rather than the cue, is this possible?
  3. Great, thanks for that. I'll take a look at it later.
  4. Hi Guys, I'm just setting us FS UAE and having some issues with multi disc games. All my roms are in ipf format within zip files. I can load multi disc games directly in the FS UAE launcher by selecting the zip via the "Multi Select" button and this loads all discs to drives. But I was wondering if it is possible to do this automatically from LB?
  5. Thanks for the input guys. Budget isn't huge but knowing I'll probably want more in the future I might have to go down the i5/i7 route. Just won't tell the wife! I'll be wanting to use Big Box as well.
  6. Hi guys, I'm looking to build/buy a new mini HTPC and use it with Launchbox. I don't need anything major as I'm probably only emulating up to PS1. Can anyone recommend any specs, I've been looking at a mini PC that has an Intel Atom X5 Z8350 but not sure if that will be good enough? Any suggestions would be greatly received

    Hi guys, Just wondering where I can find a changelog for official and beta releases. Be good to know what the latest features are :-)
  8. Same here, not sure what is going on...
  9. progets said Isn't that backwards? A feature in the free version that isn't in the paid version. I understand the voting and that there are priorities but it makes no sense to lose a feature when going to a "better" version. This is in Big Box, I'd imagine it works differently to Launch Box so would need to be coded separately. Not a huge issue though.
  10. Great, thanks! Thought that may of been the case
  11. Hi guys, Is there an option in Big Box to select a random game? I know there is one in default Launch Box.
  12. Just tried it and works a treat. I have multi part bin files with .gdi files and it loads them perfectly! Lunchbox wins again!!
  13. Great! Thanks for that, I'll take a look :-)
