    Sorry coming late into the party. How are we determining the video didn't download? Is it now showing up in Launchbox or Big Box? Is it not in the Launchbox\Videos\Windows\ directory? Mine is working so I want to get as much information as possible so we can try to get this working for everyone.

    at least I have no video in the games detail screen in Launchbox AND under missing video filter the game is showing up

    I would upload these to the database, but there is no option to mass upload images? I would have to upload them one at a time? lol. I dont have that kind of OCD. TBH I wish I had access to the launchbox database and manually add/remove things. It's getting to be a bit of a mess with duplicate or wrong images. Even some of the info metadata is wrong on most of these titles. It could be worse I suppose. Sorry I didnt have this collection in launchbox naming standards. But others will have different names for them in their own collections anyway. At least the no-intro naming scheme is standard as you can get.

    @Jason Carr maybe we can push to him some love to work on GamesDB functionalities

    Just copy and paste your current RetroArch info into another folder called for example (RetroArchSMS)

    You need everything except all the cores (just the picodrive core)

    Then when you use the custom resolution, save it as core override, rather than per game.

    You can do this, as Sega Master System is the only system using the Pico core.

    instead of a full retroarch setup I misuse the core splitter and have 3 or 4 of the same core with small different naming. so I can use a PICO for SMS etc. very helpful for me for Mesen Famicom Disk and Mesen Famicom + NES

    I think we should be strict about not putting fake ESRB ratings in, regardless of the reason. What we should probably do is add a separate PEGI rating field to the database in order to track PEGI ratings (and perhaps more additional fields for other countries like Japan).

    I would be more than happy if the GamesDB Structure and fields get an fresh update on some parts like this to make it more flexibel for other regions outside US.

    So it's been a pretty crazy past couple of days. I just put out 10.5-beta-2, which appears to fix an issue where controllers weren't working for Windows 7 users, because Windows 7 apparently does not support XInput 1.4 at all. So I'm now reverting to XInput 1.3 in that case.

    Any testing you all can do with 10.5-beta-2 would be appreciated.

    not even realised anything between 10.1 to 10.4

    Generally, in that case, the best solution is to use Windows Explorer to search for the correct files to add, and then you can drag and drop them into LaunchBox and import them that way. If you check the user folder name box, that will work properly, assuming the folders aren't nested as @neil9000 says above. If they're nested, you're probably going to be out of luck without doing some manual work or restructuring the folders somehow. Not sure how we would solve that one.

    Filtering by file type? As an option during import process? Maybe as an option and if flag is setup a new screen will popup. After you entered ...“eBoot.bin“ or so, yadayadayada

    Meh, we're almost to the official release now. ;)

    Makes it not better ūüėČ and from the marketing perspective you shouldn‚Äôt call this release version 10 because of lacking new killer features for a new version. It is more a bug fixing version. Android cannot be your argument for this windows release/

    Gotta ask what this is!

    it is the way how you can upload or enter things into the Launchbox Database at this moment. I was happy with the plug in so I was able to upload it directly from launchbox, but even then game by game was so annoying that I canceled it after thousands of entries

    Yeah and making my own fade screens over the weekend was a breeze.  Literally just put a now loading transparent text image and a bunch of cool wallpapers in the correct folder and that was it.  It's the little details in there that really set it apart like the per-game tweaks and stuff.  I'm thinking of doing a little tutorial someday just to show that it isn't really that big of a monster to deal with. 

    this is generally the show off on launchbox. things getting more and more complicated and the easy way to do it is no longer feasible. I have the feeling of going the way of rocket launcher, which is no longer easy to handle as well. how many people are really able to build fade ins, bezels etc nowadays for launchbox. even themes are way easier to build in hyper spin at all. sure the themes in launchbox have tons of possibility but to achieve this .... takes to long.
