  1. That's great to hear! Per#1: Very rarely do game have parentheses in the title, but right now some games do in our database. I wanted to know if there are other ASCII characters that are best to avoid in the title Per#2: Not just for arcade but any platform with identically named games won't differentiate media even with different release dates. In my own collection I was changing the names to split the media apart. (For example: Pac-Man and Pac-Man: Tengen on NES instead of Pac-Man (TENGEN). A better example would be Ms. Pac-Man on NES. There are two different games called Ms. Pac-
  2. I'm tackling the Arcade platform and wanted to throw some ideas out to the community to see what everyone's thoughts are: 1. Game titles with parentheses or brackets should be removed since it conflicts with the scraper and it makes it difficult to find in a search in LaunchBox. Does anyone know of any other ASCII characters we should avoid in game titles? 2. I've run across several games with the same name in Arcade but they are different games (Badlands, Super Dodge Ball, etc.) I posted to change them to "Super Dodge Ball: Neo Geo" and "Badlands: Atari" because if the game title is th

    ARCADE!!!

    @Thanatos_Prime Oh no! I had already started and the Sammy Atomiswave platform is empty. My apologies, I will move them back and copy over media and metadata from those games into games under "Arcade". -Jeffe10

  5. I would like to know as well. Can we fill the Wikipedia field with links from other sites or are we only taking wikipedia?
  6. I agree @DOS76. Since we don't have a separate section for the casino/fruit games, I will discontinue to request deletion. Thanks everyone for the clarification!
  7. I've been spending the last 2 years going through every arcade game and updating every field in my collection. I'm done and I was moving on the other platforms, but I learned that I have the ability to update the database and I was blown away. I would like to start adding and updating to the database, so I got the plugin but it's been erroring out every few games, so I wanted to manually add games and update. What is the best way to do this? I'm curious if we are going to split platforms based on region: For example, Super NES and Super Famicom, NES and Famicom, Turbografx and PC Engine
  8. I could not combine games by using Ctrl+Shift+C
  9. I was recently updating my launchbox and my pc was bumped during the update and my computer shut down! When I tried launchbox I got this error and I'm not sure what to do. 1.Should I try to restore to a previous version? 2. How do I restore to a previous version? 3. Install a new launchbox and move the files over? Please help!
  10. Go Jason Go! Works so far for me too! Thank you sir
  11. Thanks so much Jason for the support! I took your advice and edited my settings.xml and got you your Debug.log I updated to the newest beta and immediately got 2 errors to pop up. They are attached as error1 and error2 Now on beta 3 the application is showing the same results, however they are intermittent and sometime will stay for minutes or go away in seconds. Very difficult to describe... The debug log continued to multiply in size while I had Launchbox open till it was getting to be larger than 100MB! It is repeating the same messa
  12. Similar issue here grus. I went ahead and downloaded the 6.11 version onto another drive and backed up the original version. Then I moved most of the files from the 6.12 version (the one causing the issue) to the 6.11 version on the other drive. I didnt move: -the update folder -the backup folder -the launchbox and bigbox executable -the uninstall files Every thing else was moved and I tested it out and it works great! I deleted the 6.12 version from the drive and moved the 6.11 in the same place as the 6.12. Basically from one drive to ano
  13. Great feedback! I love this software more! I have removed the new install from my system and got rid of the two other installs of launchbox. I kept the original and have zipped up the data folder for you to take a look at. I also followed your advice, ckp and have the 3 dumps. There is a concern, because the launchbox never shows as freezing on the task manager. It continues to run, but the application will not let me click anywhere and prevents me using windows while it has the locus of control. I have to end the launchbox process to get back to the deskto
