  1. All good here, thanks @C-Beats.
  2. Hi @camboico. You might try a plugin I wrote called Archive Cache Manager. It will auto select the .bin file inside the .rar instead of the .cue file when launching PCSX2. Just make sure you have "Extract rom archives before running" option checked in the emulator config for PCSX2. The plugin will also keep a temporary copy of the extracted game so you don't need to decompress it every time.
  3. If you have a 'gold' set of xml files you're restoring from, you could use a batch file to copy them and then launch LB/BB. Here's a quick batch file which will recover from a backup file, then run LaunchBox. The backup file has been copied from the Backups folder to the top level LaunchBox folder, and renamed to Restore.7z. The batch commands below are saved to a file named Restore.bat, also in the LaunchBox folder. If you then run Restore.bat, it will extract Restore.7z to your Data folder, then run LaunchBox. I've done a quick test with the batch file and it works, but make any backups
  4. I imagine LaunchBox will throw a bunch of internal exceptions, and things like play count or last played info won't be updated. That said, it sounds like LaunchBox's data backup feature will handle your use case of potential corruption. It's enabled by default under Tolls -> Options -> Data -> Backups, and will create a snapshot of your data folder every time LaunchBox starts and exits. It keeps a rolling set of up to 25 backups. The backups can then be restored through the Tools -> Restore Data Backup menu.
  5. Also confirming the missing icons. Plugin icons also seem to be unaffected.
  6. Thanks for this bit of info. Just today I had an incorrect import, where the PS1 version of Final Fantasy VII (Europe) was being picked up as a Chinese rom hack. I thought I'd messed up the regions before realizing the game metadata was incorrect.
  7. Hi @sirpigpin To add to @zugswang's answer, search from the top level PS1 rom folder using the highlighted search field in File Explorer. That will then list only pbp files. Once the search is complete, select them all and drag them into LaunchBox to be imported. In this case you're probably best off removing all the PS1 games from LaunchBox first, then importing them again. The same technique can be used for any file type, including gdi or cue files.
  8. Hi @unexpectedpanda - I just ran across your tool yesterday on github and it's exactly what I needed. I'm currently working on a multi console region LaunchBox setup, and using Retool to come up with USA, Europe, and Japan lists for some No-Intro sets. The results are excellent. The clone lists and extra filter options also really help pare down the results. Really great work
  9. Thanks for the quick response, it looks great
  10. These are really great, thanks @phenix14000! Would it be possible to get an updated version of Crash Bandicoot? The source artwork looks to be this scan, which is a bit washed out. I noticed it in the LB games database and have since submitted a better scan.
  11. Hi everyone, Version 2.0.7 is ready for download. This version includes a couple of new features: Badge for cached games. Also includes Simple White and Neon style badges to match your theme. Enable it under the Badges->Enable Archive Cached menu. The ROM file selected using the "Select ROM In Archive..." menu is automatically loaded the next time that game is played (thanks @Jerre for not asking )
  12. Hi @vinylgamer What file format are your Sega CD games in? I just tried a zipped bin+cue version of Spider-man vs Kingpin, and LaunchBox is able to load it with RetroArch. Is there any difference in file formats between the working and non-working games? Are they zipped, or just files on disk? I know some Sega CD roms are data + audio files, and it may be LaunchBox is trying to load the audio file with RA instead of the data file.
  13. Hi @ReignerDeustcher, I was able to disable the highlight by copying and editing an existing theme. Go to LaunchBox\LBThemes, then copy and paste the Default folder to duplicate the theme. Rename the copy to something like Default - No Hover. In the Default - No Hover folder, find the file Views\BoxesContentView.xaml, then right-click and select Edit. Press Ctrl+F and find the line <Border x:Name="Highlight" CornerRadius="4" Background="#18FFFFFF" Visibility="Collapsed" Edit the line so Background="#18FFFFFF" now reads Background="#00FFFFFF". Sa
