  1. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox

    Why do we need partial values? I would rather have stars than partial values. How o you determine partial values anyway? What's the difference between a 4.2 and a 4.3 game? Just give it a rating of 4. Stars look so much better than a number.
  2. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox

    I thought they got removed in one of the latest updates to Launchox. Last week I had stars instead of a numerical value. Updated Launchox to the latest beta 2 days ago and now I only get a numerical value.
  3. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox

    Is this for the blue version of the theme as well? I downloaded it but I only see the green version.
  4. Star Rating Not Working

    The star rating was displaying the number of stars with actual stars. Now, since the last update it only displays a number. If a game was 4 starts, instead of displaying 4 actual stars, it's only displaying the number 4. How do i fix this? Is there a setting or is this a bug?
  5. Compress your video's for free

    Thanks a lot. Will give it a go tonight.
  6. Compress your video's for free

    Can you share your settings?
  7. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox

    Who's this Austin guy and why is he here? Kidding.... Thought he was still using Hyperspin.
  8. Additional Apps Changed

    That would be better. I guess I wouldn't mind it so much if it had the above title. It bugs me because there's an option to view the Game Manual already there and now I have this Additional Apps for everything else. Before at least it as consistent. I had Game Manual and I would add Game Guide, Game Trainer, Game Maps and everything looked the same and was grouped together on the left side of the screen. Now things look out of place. Game Manual is still there and for everything else I have this ugly menu item with a pop up box. Just personal preference I guess.
  9. Game Music and Background Music

    Ahhhh....you have to scroll down past the bottom of the screen. Holly...can't tell you how many times I've been through this menu and never saw that option. What i did was lower the decibes in my background music so it was quieter. Guess I won't have to do that again.
  10. Game Music and Background Music

    There is but all that does is play the video audio over the background music.
  11. Game Music and Background Music

    Wondering the same. Also, has anyone found a way to have the background music play at a lower volume? It clashes badly with the platform and game videos.
  12. There is a difference between the AES and MVS versions. The MVS version version is the arcade version and only has arcade difficulty. Also, some games like baseball will get interrupted with a countdown to insert more coins. The AES version is the home console version and it offers different difficulty levels including arcade, some games will have trainers and you don't get the insert coin countdown. The CD version was a cheaper alternative to the AES console. Games do have better music because they are on CD and the system had something like 3 or 4 exclusive games but they are unplayable because they are in Japanese. It's also missing a lot of games released for the AES. The roms for the AES and MVS are the same. You just use a different BIOS in MAME. I have both on my setup. MVS under the Arcade category and AES under Consoles category. I don't bother with the CD version. The games are the same with better sound but take up 10x the size on the hard drive. Not worth it.
  13. Wrong Folder Names - New System

    While trouble shooting my long startup times, I uninstalled my old copy of Launchbox and downloaded the latest + beta updates. Now, when I create a new system, it sets the default Box-Front and Box-Back folders to Front and Back, meaning that I now have to manually go into every system and set them back to Box-Front and Box-Back.
  14. Long Starup Times

    I found the problem. I deleted my Genres Playlist from the Platform Categories menu along will all my genre playlists and now everything is back to normal. Really weird.
  15. Long Starup Times

    Rebooting the computer? I turn my computer off every night so yes, I've done that. Yeah, it's strange. Not sure what would cause it to take so long to start now. It's a standard 4TB HD that is completely dedicated to my Retro gaming. It's not being used to run any other processes. Guess I'll just have to find a startup video that's 1 min long. I have a few but they all show the Hyperspin logo at the end.
