  1. I'm getting the same crash on the latest beta (and only since updating to the latest). Every time I open up LB and then select any game from any platform, LB immediately crashes. If I go into BB, no crashes at all.
  2. @Thornback Thanks for the review! There is already a theme for Metal Gear Rising in this collection (#94 in the list/download list). There is also one for Skyrim (#93) unless you want one for the non Special Edition version, which I can do. I have just over 300 games in my PC collection so I'm sure I'll have all of those covered eventually I've been wanting to do a theme for Vanquish since it was released to PC, so maybe I'll do that one next.
  3. You'll have to use the ICO file; Windows won't recognize a PNG or JPG, etc, for shortcut icons. If you make a shortcut to the EXE and change the icon of that shortcut, it will last forever. The only way it would break is if you completely change where you have LB installed or if you use a program like Resource Hacker to modify the images inside the EXE. Just use the ICO to modify a shortcut and you won't need to mess with it again (even after LB updates)
  4. I've been getting these same kinds of crashes lately, as well, but not very frequently; they occur while going through different games in my collections and only happens in BB mode. I was also getting them once the startup videos were changed to be played back, natively, in the LB/BB engine. About 1 in 5 times, BB would crash right after the startup video finished. I've disabled Startup videos for now and haven't seen anyone mention it, so figured it was probably something on my end causing it.
  5. Hi @Biyakuga I attached an ICO you can use, if you wish, if you want to modify a shortcut (you would be correct that the icon would revert back to what it is now if you modified the existing EXE since it would be overwritten every time a new version is released). Being you were talking about matching Windows 10, it's just flat white, so nothing special or fancy, but matches the existing icons for the Start Menu, Xbox App, Store, etc. Totally not trolling you ; just trying to help out. I don't think it's an unreasonable request, but like has been said, if it is even something on Jason's radar to do, it's probably not very high and I think most are okay with what already exists. lb-icon.ico
  6. Super Nintendo Game Themes (4:3) View File This is mainly just a placeholder; I won't be actively making SNES themes until I get more done for PC and finish PS2 (and I'm also waiting to see if there will be more HyperSpin themes made available, too). In any case I'll be doing these in 4:3 to keep them the same as the HyperSpin themes @Riffman81 has already uploaded. I will do each one in two different flavors: One with a soundtrack and one with just the game audio (no soundtrack in the filename). I'll also be adding soundtracks to all of the HyperSpin themes I've downloaded since that is what I like and unless there is interest, I probably won't upload those versions, but putting it out there in case there is. This will also be the home for Super Famicom themes once I get around to those. Playlist: 1. Super Metroid 2. Super Metroid (no soundtrack) 3. Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars 4.

  8. Seems it has to be a Retroarch core and the core itself also has to support them. For instance, I was looking at some of my NES games that have achievements through Retroachievements, but none of them would unlock. I tried with both the Nestopia and FCEUMM Retroarch cores, but neither worked (someone on the Retroachievements site said the FCEUMM core might work; apparently it is know the Nestopia one doesn't). Haven't tried any other cores yet. So far, only SNES achievments have actually worked (I use the bsnes core).
  9. This is super fantastic! Thank you for implementing this! I just went and unlocked 22 achievements in Super Metroid. I'm sure it's already been asked, but is it feasible or realistic that, at some point, something similar could be implemented for displaying Steam, Origin, GOG and uPlay achievements? Like integrating your login for these services (like EmuMovies or RetroAchievements) into LB/BB and displaying them that way?
  10. It's just my regular Gameboy collection setup as a Super Gameboy playlist. I did it more for fun since there was a ROM for the Super GB and I'd probably only play from the Super Gameboy list anyway, for color.
  11. Thanks! I've been working on this LB setup for the last year and half-ish. I've still got at least a couple more years left for all the videos I still need to make for each game. Yeah, I don't really want a bunch of games I know I will never, ever care to play. Odds are, most of what I have now will never get played
  12. My Playlist XMLs are attached. I don't have a Wrestling playlist; just made that as a request and the Looney Tunes one just has two games in it, but here you go! I'm also still working on a video for Shmups, but the playlist is here. Castlevania Collection.xml Fighter Classics.xml Final Fantasy.xml Looney Tunes Collection.xml Mario Collection.xml Mega Man.xml Metal Slug.xml Metroid Collection.xml Mortal Kombat.xml NES Black Box.xml Shmups.xml Sonic the Hedgehog.xml The Legend of Zelda.xml Virtua Fighter Collection.xml

  17. Edit to the above. I see what you mean now. I have Last Played, Most Played and Play Count, in addition to what's in your screenshot. Those are things that won't appear until you actually launch a game from a Playlist. If that doesn't show anything after that, then I'm going to guess it would have to be a bug. And for games completed, you'll have to edit the game's details in LB and check the box in there. Hopefully Jason will add the ability to mark games completed to BB eventually (I put it on the "small things" list).
  18. I guess I'm not sure if you have everything turned on for Platform Details. Platform Details specifically correlates to this view and the one for the actual Platforms... I went through and de-selected options and saw they were gone and came back when I re-selected them. I tested to see if the Filter Details made a difference by turning those on and off, but it doesn't seem to matter if those are selected or not. Can't say it's the theme either because you are using the same one. That's a head scratcher.
  19. Well, depending on what you want to appear there, go into Options in BigBox and then to Platform Details; check the boxes for whatever information you want to be visible. If you don't have something configured, you'll have to do that before the information will actually show and some things won't appear at all (example: default emulator doesn't display under the categories screen. It only appears under the platform screen and only if you associated an emulator to be the default for that platform). For notes, if you right-click the playlist in LaunchBox and edit it, there is a tab for additional notes, so you can add some flavor text for each playlist. If you want some flavor text for the root Playlist category, just right-click that and do the same.
  20. Yeah, I don't like too much clutter and I could probably pare it down even more honestly. It's easy to get that setup; just a few steps: In LaunchBox, I set the view to "Platform Categories"In an empty area in the left-hand column, right-click and choose "Add". Create the new Platform "Playlists" Category here. When you create a Playlist or want to add an existing Playlist to this, edit it and check the "Include this Playlist in Platforms Lists" box and choose your Playlists Category from the drop down. After that, open up BigBox and go to Options -> "Views". Under "Default Startup View", change it to "Platform Categories". Hope that helps!
  21. Thanks! Everything is available from the forums or from downloading via LB (for @JamesBaker's platform vids). The theme is @CriticalCid's Critical Zone - Blue Box The background video is from a collection uploaded by @Zombeaver, I'm pretty sure, but I can't remember where he uploaded it to in Downloads. All of the Playlist themes and themes for the PC games were made by me and are available from their respective downloads sections. I've got a few hundred game-specific themes uploaded across multiple platforms (currently working on PS2/PC) and will continue uploading new ones as I complete theme. Same for platforms/playlists (The Windows and MSX ones I did too). The Computers and TG-CD themes were done by Retrohumanoid. The Computers vid is here, but you may have to get the TG-CD one from his website: http://retrohumanoid.weebly.com/downloads.html The PS4 sound files can also be downloaded from the forums (along with several other sound files). https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/category/3-big-box-sound-packs/ About the only things I don't upload are the wallpapers for games. TL;DR Yep, just about all of it you can download from here

    The second video I ever uploaded was for the MSU1 enhanced games since I had them added as a separate platform. Since I re-did the Hacks & Fan-Made video (which was my first), I decided to re-do this one too. I included an image of the Nintendo/Sony Play Station since that is what the MSU1 architecture was essentially designed to bring to fruition. The gameplay loop only includes games that have known patches/soundtracks/FMVs (according to this site, Donkey Kong Country received a patch recently too: http://www.nintendolife.com/news/2017/09/donkey_kong_country_on_snes_gets_the_msu1_digital_audio_enhancement_treatment). This next week I will have a playlist video up for Shmups. Hope you all like it. A clear logo for your playlist/platform is also provided below.

  24. You can thank @BlueArrowUK for asking me to do that one
  25. Pretty sure LB uses DirectX 9 since it released with Windows XP and is compatible up to Windows 10 (most PC games still uses it), though I can't be 100% sure. I know the cause for that error though. It's because DirectX components are installed into your Windows folder and therefore the UAC (User Account Control) gets triggered for you to accept the changes. If you don't, after a few minutes, whatever you were trying to install will fail and give you a message similar to the above and say it was terminated by the user. Since you stepped away, you probably never accepted on the UAC pop-up This is referring to the DX Setup error; not the LB one
