  1. This is true to an extent. I went back to using rocketlauncher because the rocketlaunch pause menu does work on 95% of PC games in full screen. If the guys from rocketlauncher were able to make it work, then there is a way. With Launchbox the games need to be set to borderless window mode and very few games support that.
  2. Thanks a lot. Everything is working again.
  3. So after doing some testing seems like it's games newly imported. The ones I had imported previously seem to be working. When i install a new game, I create a shortcut in H:\Roms\Microsoft Windows\Game Name (Release Year).ink So in H:\Roms\Microsoft Windows\ my shortcuts will be named: Ace Combat 7 (2019).ink, Beyond Blue (2020).ink, Assassin's Creed (2008).ink and so on. In Lunchbox I import a Rom file > Add files > select shortcut and then enable emulator RocketLauncher. Doing this helps keep all my rocketlauncher folders organized since they will all be named the same as the shortcut name. Otherwise they have to be named the same as the .exe file and things get messy. This method was working perfectly fine until the latest update. Now When i import a shortcut, the application path defaults to the exe file. Changing the application path manually to use the shortcut results in "The Rom file you specified does not exist". However, games imported previously still show the application path pointing at the shortcut .ink file and they are working. it's only affecting newly imported games.
  4. Until now, the way I added PC games was via shortcuts in my Roms folder, adding the shortcut as my Launching application and enabling Emulation to use Rocketlauncher. This kept everything organized in Rocketlauncher (Fades, Backgrounds, Guides and so on) and was easy to change game path just by changing the shortcut if I moved the game to another drive. For example for the game Beyond Blue my path would be ..Roms\Microsoft Windows\Beyond Blue (2020).ink Now, after this latest update I can't do that anymore. Once I add the shortcut it takes me to the exe file E:\Games\Beyond Blue (2020)\BeyondBlue.exe Changing the path manually to the shortcut .ink file results in a Rom file does not exist error. Launchbox no longer recognizes the ink file and Rocketluancher does not start. This messes up with everything in rocketlaunher. Is there any way around this?
  5. There won't be any 4k assets any time soon. it would be a lot of work to re-so all assets in 4K. And that is provided we can even find nice scanned artwork in 4K. We have trouble just finding any assets at any resolution for certain games. Someone with a large complete collection of games would need to re-scan all covers and cartriges/cds at 4K, Then we would need to crop and clean 60,000 plus covers, cut out the clear logos and re-do all cartriges/cds/disks in 4K with a clear background. Just the work require to recut all those clear logos would take years, Even for new system it is difficult to find artwork in 4K. This is not just for lunchbox. It applies to any front end. The artwork in 4k simply doesn't exist.
  6. I'm also having issues with this latest version. Some random crashes when creating a theme and systems where I can't select a game. It always defaults to the first game on the list no matter what I do. Had to go back to the previous version where everything works fine.
  7. Did you find a solution? I'm getting the same issue. I thought it was related to Rocketlauncher but it happens when I run emulator directly. This never happened before. Been using this thsi emulator for years without problems.
  8. When you import your games, you will get to a screen that says "Would you like to specify any custom options?". Make sure you only select "Force Importing Duplicate Games". Otherwise Launchbox will either not import every game or it will group games with very similar names together. Lunchbox relies mostly on No-Intro sets. It does not have curated lists like Hyperspin. In Hyperspin you get all the north american releases, european exclusives and Japanese games that can be played without knowing Japanese (plus prototypes and unreleased games that are playable). That way you get the most amount of playable games without duplication. So if the same game from different regions has significant differences, it will be part of the hyperspin database twice is the tag (USA) or (EUR), but lunchbox will either think it's a duplicate or it will group them together into one game if you toggle anything else on that import screen. I still have my hyperspin installed just so I can manage my games and name my files properly. Launchbox is great but if you are used to hyperspin and having everything neatly organised, you may need to adjust. Like you, I keep PC Engine and Turbografx desperately. Just make sure PC engine is set to scrape Turbografx 16. If you have everything organized in hyperin, you just need to copy over all your artwork. Launchbox will recognize artwork that is named the same as your roms. If you need any help feel free to contact me.
  9. Cool. Are there any plans to allow editing of the Games Details View in the future? Seems like it's the only thing missing right now.
  10. I have another question regarding the animations. I have my cd image spinning in one game, but when I select a different game the cd does not return to it's original position. So lets say I select a game, the cd animation kicks in and it's rotating. When I select a different game, the cd shows up at the rotation point it was in the previosus game. It doesn't not show up upright. Is there any way to return to cd animation to it's upright position every time you select a new game? I've been playing around with the settings and for the life of me I can't do it.
  11. The only thing i want is a folder for guides and media like the Pause menu from Rocketlauncher. Manuals are nice but I look at guides way more than I ever look at manuals. I can add guides as a separate app and view them in the Details view but there's no way to access guides or walkthrough videos from the Pause menu while playing the game. Can't believe such a simple thing was never implemented.
  12. Is there a way to find out what each view is for? No idea which view is for what. Main menu (where you select Computers, Consoles, Arcade) Platform menu (where you select your console or computer system) Game menu (The one with a vertical wheel where you select your game) Are there any tutorials? I've spent quite a bit with this and have no idea what to do. I can't even add a background image or a video. I've been through the live stream videos but again, nothing is clear. Would you be able to create a very basic tutorial on how to add a vertical wheel, background, video and system logo?
  13. Since we're on this discussion, does anyone know of any good 3rd party wiimotes that work with the Dolphin Bar? Real Nintendo wiimotes are very expensive but reading reviews on Amazon, it seems that not all 3rd party wiimotes work with the Dolphin Bar and some seem to be of poor quality.
  14. To be honest, the PC game videos at emumovies are really old. You better off recording your own with something like Fraps. The free version only records 30 seconds but that's all you need. Emumovies are only 30 seconds long anyway.
