  1. it looks amazing, but I want to keep my back cover box art after taking all this time to collect it. Maybe someday you can get it to only pick the front box art for both.
  2. There are some great playlists out there. I have some top 100/50 of a bunch of genres (fighting, beat em up, shoot em up, etc.) and then a golden age playlist, and actually some playlists that mimic physical arcade locations so it's like going through what they have there which is sort of fun. I'd be happy to share any or all of them along with their clear logos.

    Oh didn't know that. I suppose because every time i added a platform I was of course adding RL as the emulator, so I associated it with the overall scheme of things.

    Once you start fresh with lunchbox selected as your plugin in rocket launcher, you have to to back to launch box and tell every platform to use rocketlauncher as the emulator, should be in the emulator drop down box now. Then they should show up in rocketlauncher. But you would still have to configure the emulators and everything else in rocketlauncher.
  5. This is definitely something that should be a bitbucket issue and hopefully get into an update someday. I have snes, gamecube, playstation, and xbox360 controllers. I just have to try to remember which ones have certain buttons that land on a different button than the other ones. Usually end up pressing every button until I come across the one for launching the game. which usually means that I hit the change views button along the way and have to set that back and remember not to hit that the next time around.
  6. even if you have to buy an emumovies lifetime,...these two products are just amazing in conjunction with one another. Worth the money, and then some!
  7. I really don't know exactly how they get it to work, even with RA, all I know is I type that stuff in, and then it works.
  8. This is especially useful for all the different arcade games with unique buttons. Come to think of it, it would probably be just as useful for consoles if someone were to go into the game's manual and then make an image with what each button did like your example.
  9. Hopefully they can figure out how to send ahk key presses to the emulator. That's all that rocketlauncher does. There is a setup screen for your specific emulator and you just type in what the key presses are for save and load. Example: {F5}{down}{F5}{up}{1}{down}{1}{up}. That sends a press of F5, and then when the emulator wants the slot number to save, it then sends a 1 keypress for that. you can set the delay to be whatever you want in milliseconds, so there's enough of a pause in between the keypresses, and then bam, you see everything flash on the screen as if you had pressed the keys yourself, and your save goes through.
  10. hmmm interesting. I wish Windows would just show you a list of what usb ports you have (numbered), and then let you confirm which controller is plugged in, and then lock that name to that port until you wanted to change it. That way you could lock it to a usb dongle so windows wouldn't shuffle everything just because it got an on or off signal.
  11. I'm still trying to get someone with one of the 8bitdo bluetooth controllers to tell me if they re-arrange the order of wired controllers when turned on and off, or if the dongle keeps it's slot occupied even when the controller is turned off. I'd love to get one, but I don't want to loose every mapping of the other controllers as soon as I turn it off and back on.
  12. Yeah, not sure if there's anything more you can do as far as optimizing. I guess that might be one thing HS still has over LB. How are you liking it though so far?
  13. One of the coolest things for me is the fact that we all are collectively preserving video game history on each of our setups. It's a big problem for preservationists in general, and seems to be overlooked mostly. I like the feeling of being a part of something that is helping to save these cultural artifacts in some form or another.
  14. I used this for my startup video: http://www.a4video.com/volume-normalizer-master.htm It was insane how much louder the startup video was than my bigbox.
  15. Heyyyy welcome! Haven't seen that name in ages. I think I have a start up video that lasts about 15 seconds maybe, and somehow it's perfectly timed for when bigbox starts up. I don't even have close to that amount though. That's frickin' huge. I think there is a cache setting you can adjust, but I'm not sure what it was. Someone else probably knows more.
  16. i'd say it is still worth it even for non-emulator games. The presentation of launchbox/bigbox is just so nice.
  17. how does that really feel to control? ergonomically feels ok or what? i'm really into this, but it's just not really out there a lot, and you can't go hold it anywhere. Curious how it really feels and works.
  18. Is this for navigating bigbox with the controller, or for exiting a game from the emulator? I use rocketlauncher, which uses joy2key profiles that can be game-specific, emulator specific, or platform specific. So i have "select" set to the esc key, but with a hold of like half a second before it engages. It's always select, across all platforms. I think keymapping is the next big piece of the puzzle for a more seamless experience in LB/BB.
  19. yeah shoot 'em ups should not be with shooters, or run 'n gun. That one is pretty obvious. FPS games should be their own genre "First-person shooters". I haven't really messed with genre stuff much, but I would have thought that it wouldn't be as general as what is presented in the original post. Interesting. Good solution from agent47 as well.
  20. Oh first of all you have to tell launchbox to use rocketlauncher as the emulator for the system, and then point rocketlauncher to launchbox, so it gets the signal.
  21. Only thing that could make it better is if they were in the folder structure already, so it could be a drag n' drop scenario. Having to move them over one at a time can get a bit tedious.
  22. I think you could bulk edit all the games without box art and then point those to the image. I've never had to do anything like this because my no box art games are so few that I can deal with it. Even in the arcade system, there is box art for so many games. But if you select them all and then do the bulk edit, maybe you can select box art image from that menu system?
  23. I deleted the playlist, and then re-auto-generated it, and it is still the only playlist showing up on the regular platform category list in bigbox. Refreshed image cache for all images too. I also deleted the auto-generated list and replaced it with a manually filled list. It's weird that it would pick Castlevania to be the only playlist i've made and feature it on the platform category menu lol. Maybe it's a sign?
  24. try asking on the reddit too. https://www.reddit.com/r/tipofmyjoystick/
  25. Yeah you have to really be dedicated to your hacks/homebrews to have all the images and videos and stuff. I try as best i can, but some fall through the cracks. I just deal with the gaps, but I have found a lot of videos on youtube, and made a lot of clear logos on my own. It's tolerable, but not complete by any means.
