  1. I appreciate the response but that was not the issue. It wasn't opening at all. In the Discord I was able to find out my core folder was missing. Not sure how it went missing between opening the program 10 seconds apart but that was the issue! I ran the updater and it gave me a new core folder and it worked again.
  2. Won't open for me. It opened on the wrong screen, so I closed it to try to load it on the right screen and now it won't launch at all. Looked through this thread, obviously restarted my PC, nothing works. It's just dead and doesn't even attempt to open.
  3. Yup, but I might make it easy and just put those buttons in. I'm modding a 1up cab, so I'm taking out the stock power/volume and adding two buttons (plus another). I'll go with select, back, exit. I guess a Pause button could be useful too.
  4. Yeah, I don't wanna use a button combo cause people won't understand if I'm not around. I was thinking three buttons and that's what you seem to think too so I'll go with that!
  5. Wasn't really sure where to post this - so decided this was the best option. Long story - I'm modding a Marvel Arcade 1UP to include a PC with Big Box on it. I'm just trying to set-up everything on paper before I start. My big question is - how many menu/hotkey buttons would be adequate? I'll have a mini keyboard attached to the top of the unit, but I only want to pull that out when absolutely needed (ie: freeze, etc). I'll only be doing Arcade games and a few select console games - like fighters, etc. I'm just trying to think of how many hot keys to add to the cabinet to make this work nicely, without having to do multi-button commands (I want it easy to use for company).
  6. Installed this tonight. Loving it on everything. Can't get it to work with MAME, and even if I did, I'm not sure it could do both horizontal and vertical games for bezels. But even the pause screen is not working for me there. But if that's it, I'm still thrilled! But every other system I have is working perfectly. Thank you for this! I may start working on my own Bezel's shortly which would have the controller on each side so you can easily remember buttons lol
  7. Is there anyway to launch both the game and the menu window (since Dolphin uses two windows for emulation - 1 for the game, 1 for the menu)? If I launch a game outside of Launchbox, the menu window stays in the background (easy to access by alt-tab for controller issues/resolution scaling). If I launch a game in Launchbox, I do not get the menu window - just the game window. EDIT: Thanks for the help in Discord. -b was the culprit.
  8. Ah, fair enough - makes sense. The full screen videos, are just a space eater for quality and makes the otherwise light theme, run heavy. It's fine for my PC, but others I'm not so sure. But thanks for the response! Great work!
  9. I love this - but I can't afford the disc space of the carts for every system. And it seems like a lot of work for the systems which are going to be missing a ton of carts/cds/etc. But its super lovely. The pause theme is fantastic - I didn't even know you could use pause themes!
  10. I just found out about this now. I bought Launchbox on Android but I never used it because emulation on Android just seems like something I don't have time for. I hated the Steam Link solution. Mine's in a box, hahaha. It was just not great. And controllers were so hit or miss... maybe it's better now since controller support in retroarch is better now than a few years ago. However, I just bought a "smaller" (still fairly large, think two consoles together) PC, threw in an older graphics card, and it's literally a dedicated emulation machine that runs up to PS2 smoothly (could maybe dabble in some light PS3). Hopefully in the next few years, I an upgrade it to some type of Ryzen box, that's console size at most. But it literally just has two controllers plugged in to charge with wireless adapters and Launchbox/Big Box running and that's it. HDMI to the TV.
  11. Just started using this theme and I aboslutely love it. It's literally the most beautiful thing I've laid eyes on. I see it's still a beta, so I'm not sure the plans going forward (I'm going to read through the thread), but a couple of ideas I had were; 1: GAME VIEW: Instead of a full screen video - having the console image remain from the console view and the gameplay video for each game showing up on the TV/handheld. I'm not sure if this is actually possible to make the video that small on the screen, but it's a though. 2: The empty space above the game name - is anything planned for that or is the blank space to keep it cleaner? A 3D box or a clear logo or even the game cart/disc might look cool up there. I'm not sure. I like how clean the theme is so I don't want to make bad suggestions, but in my head it looks okay. I also love the suggestion above with the Kirby Star Allies - I think that still looks clean but slightly more visually appealing. Regardless what you do - this is the theme I'll be using on my main build. It's just wonderful. Thank you for your hard work.
  12. Awesome thank you. I didn't know that. I'm such an idiot. I can now work on this finally and have some consistency.
  13. Everything inside the launchbox folder? I won't need to change the drive letter if it goes from say a F:/ on my main PC to a C:/ on my mini PC?
  14. Long story short - I have multiple PCs with Launchbox in varying states. An arcade machine, my main PC, my emulation machine, my laptop, my mini pc,, my thumbstick which I take with me to brag to friends.... but all of the sets are in varying states. Every time I copy the folder, I have to go change games and emulator paths for it to work because drives change, etc. Is there a way that I don't know which fixes this issue easily? I would love to make one build and be able to do minimal editing when I make a new emulation pc or just transfer. And I would love to just... have one set-up that I can copy to all my machines so it's not so frustrating having things with different set-ups (aside from maybe themes). It wouldn't be so bad if my games scraped easily, but depending on the system I could have 30-200 games that don't scrape correctly and it's time consuming manually editing them on each PC. I feel like there's a way and I just don't know how to do it because I see ETA Prime moving his build to multiple PCs, etc. I'm computer dumb, so any help would be greatly appreciate. Thanks everyone!

    PC Games

    Just checking to see if this is possible. I was wondering if I was able to put ALL PC games I own from other sources (Steam, Origin, GOG, etc) into Launchbox. And if I can, am I able to add games I own but haven't installed? I'm basically trying to figure out how to put all the games into ONE nice looking program that isn't Steam (I always have issues with outside games in Steam).
