16-Bit Artificial Intelligence

16-Bit Artificial Intelligence (4/7)



  1. Thanks for the reply. How big does the cache get relative to the media? I'll upgrade sooner or later but my SSD is only a TB, which is why I was considering putting the media on the external drive.
  2. Hey all, I'm running Launchbox/Bigbox on an external USB drive and it's expectedly pretty slow. I know most keep their ROMS on an external drive, but I'm specifically asking about the media itself - images and videos. If I move the Launchbox install to an SSD but keep the ROMS AND media on an external drive, will it increase performance in any meaningful way? I wasn't sure if the bottleneck is where Launchbox is or where the media is. Also, if there's no way to specify a default media location, please consider this a feature request I know you can change the paths in Manage > Platforms > Folders afterwards, but before would be nice so the ROM import would put the media elsewhere to begin with.
  3. Hey friends, so I've been pulling my hair out for a few hours trying to track down a poker game I used to have. It's about 10 or so years old, single player and involved a campaign consisting of tournaments. I seem to remember it was related to WPT or WSOP but none of their poker games seem to be it. It's probably abandonware by now as it had graphics like PS2 quality. The graphics and voice acting was horrible, but back then it was great.. lol. I'm almost sure it was https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0480483/videoplayer/vi1308492057 but it was on PC/Windows. Although I'd love to find that one, if anyone knows of any more modern ones please let me know. I've pretty much exhausted the Steam poker games and they all want money to progress and barrage you with P2W garbage. Thanks in advance :)
  4. Great tutorial! I got stuck on the scanning though - it's not detecting any games after a lengthy scan. I have both the TOSEC and WHDLoad sets -
  5. I'm perfectly happy with it as-is. I'm glad other companies don't send Email to their entire userbase about their drama. It was extremely unprofessional, petty, and won't result in a thing. Jason decided for it to be DRM-free, and this is one bad thing about doing so. If it comes down to a legal matter, Jason should contact his lawyer, not all of his customers. I hate to break it to ya, but most inside of this community, much less outside, knows how much of a scumbag Chris Shaw is. A solution instead of telling customers about the drama: The licences should of course be revoked (I believe I saw that they have) for future updates. In future drives Shaw includes a license with, those should be revoked as well. Jason or someone on his staff should have a copy of his product as it does update. If the update includes a new license, revoke that too. If someone has a revoked licence, offer them a link to a page/blog post explaining that through no fault of their own, the hard drive they purchased contains a 3rd party commercial product that the seller was not allowed to legally distribute. Keep it simple and drama free. It isn't hard.

    Live Streams?

    So I guess these are done?

    Are you done with these @Jason Carr?

    Live Streams?

    I guess another no-show. @Jason Carr can you please let us know when you're not going to stream so we're not just waiting around? Thanks.

    Live Streams?

    Oh I'm glad everything is ok. It's unlike him not to let everyone know if the stream is cancelled. A lot were wondering both Monday and today.
  11. @spycat That error was exactly why I asked. As popular as that game was I'm surprised the Apple IIGS pack didn't include a working copy. The web and dos versions have major issues too.

    Live Streams?

    Did the live stream schedule change or something? Lots have showed up and not a word from @Jason Carr saying they've been cancelled. I hope everything is ok.
  13. So far no-go. Does Dark Castle work for you in MESS? (Apple IIGS)
  14. Not sure if you guys saw https://blog.archive.org/2017/04/16/early-macintosh-emulation-comes-to-the-archive/ but it's pretty cool. I'm wondering how we can launch this from LaunchBox...
