  1. If it's a possible RAM issue, you can try running the Memory Diagnostic Tool from withing Windows to test your sticks (might take a while to finish the test). You can access it in Control Panel or just type mdsched in the Windows Search and run it.
  2. Metroid Collection Playlist Theme (16:9) View File This is technically a version 2 of the playlist theme I did originally, but I made a different clear logo for this one, so uploading it separately. Apologies for the larger size, but I wanted to use the full length of the song. Submitter CTRL-ALT-DEFEAT Submitted 09/26/2017 Category Playlist Theme Videos

  4. Unless the PC game in question supports Direct Input, you'll have to use a third party application like Xpadder, Pinnacle Profiler, etc. to bind the keys to buttons on the controller. If the game is Direct Input compatible, you should be able to bind the buttons in the game's options menu. However most any game released to PC since Xinput was added to DirectX (back in 2008/09) don't include Direct Input support anymore. Direct Input doesn't play well with analog controls (since it pre-dates it) so it can be a pain to get the sticks to work right (if at all), so you are better off just using third party software to map the controls. I use both Xpadder and Pinnacle for games I want to use a controller with that doesn't support it (both cost about $10 a piece for a lifetime license when I purchased them a few years ago, so the cost may be different now). I would say Pinnacle is the better option since they have a repository of pre-made profiles for a huge number of games and you can download them from directly within Pinnacle. As long as Pinnacle is running, it will automatically load the corresponding profiles when a game is launched since you will point it to the game's EXE. Some games may also have mods or other config file tweaks you can make to get a controller working with them, as well.
  5. I second @spycat I have bluemsx set specfically for MSX2 (since all of my MSX games run under MSX2) and use the following command line parameters in LaunchBox /fullscreen /rom1 /fullscreen /diskA I actually set bluemsx up as an emulator twice: Once for ROM games and once for DISK games and don't use the %romfile% parameter

    Decided to do some platform theme videos for computer systems. First up is Windows, but I have interest in making themes for Steam, Origin and GOG services (for those of you that separate them) as well as MSX computers (will probably do a single one, but represent multiple generations of it). Unless there is a big interest in it, I probably won't make themes for the Uplay or Battle.net services. I will also include my clear logos for Windows and MSX; keep all Steam, Origin, GOG, Battle.net, Uplay under Windows in my setup. Tried to incorporate elements of Windows 7 and 10 into the theme (not sure there is a big user base for 8): Windows 7 Start Orb and startup sound and the default Windows 10 wallpaper (first time Microsoft ever released a default wallpaper I didn't immediately change for something else; actually used it for the first year after upgrading to it). And, yes, I am team green, so I specifically looked for a rig with Nvidia's GPUs represented, so apologies to AMD users.... Actually it was the first high res image I found. Anyhow, enjoy! Playlist: 1. Windows 2. MSX 3. Steam

  12. For WEBM format videos, you'll have to install the K-Lite Codec pack. Just Google K-Lite Codec Pack. I know that Windows Media Player doesn't support this format at all and will need this pack. VLC supposedly should support the format (and it works just fine with WEBM on my system), but I use Windows Media Player anyway (and I have the codecs installed). This is a third party source, so if you want to use Media Player, download the pack at your own risk.
  13. @angelobodetti Still have a Virtua Fighter Collection theme in the works. Can't decide on the font I want to use for "collection", but here's snippet of the next playlist theme:
  14. Uploading a no soundtrack version of this theme now. Let me know if this is what you are talking about and I'll make no soundtrack versions for the other playlist themes. I'll try to get one up per day.
  15. Hey now, some folks like the Looney Tunes games... I'm not one of them, but I did love the cartoons growing up. Also, loved me some Count Duckula.
  16. I can do that on a case by case basis, at least for playlist videos. For the game-specific videos, I'll only do the one version (primarily since I've already done a few hundred of them and going back to render them again with just the game audio would take forever). I say case by case because several of these take hours to render out (some took over 4 hours). Most render in less than an hour, but it can still take a while and I can't do much while it's rendering since all of the CPU and about half of my RAM go to it :D. That's why I don't do 4:3 variants either; just takes too long. If there are any playlists you would like to use, let me know the ones you like and I can render out versions of those without a soundtrack and just use the game audio in them. For future playlists, just leave a comment like this.
  17. Looney Tunes Collection Playlist Theme (16:9) View File This was a request from @BlueArrowUK. I don't normally get these finished so quickly, but this was so much fun that I just spent the last 4 hours doing nothing but working on it and it all came together pretty nice I think. Hope you all enjoy it. I've also included a clear logo that I mocked up as well as a banner image. I like using pixel art for my playlist banners. I'm going to update the existing playlist vids with the pixel art I use for those, too. Just put Marvin in the Banner folder after making the playlist (Images\Playlists\Looney Tunes Collection\Banner) if you want to use it.
