  1. Yep just switched back to using VLC and everything is working great!
  2. @ashez2pheonix1992 try the latest beta of the Intel Drivers - installed this morning and now my start up video is playing!
  3. Launchbox was softlocked just now in Beta 5 as I had let a game import and then media had finished downloading before I had closed the initial 'games were imported successfully' dialog box. I was able to close the media downloaded box but now I cannot close the games were imported successfully dialog.
  4. Guessing it's the XE driver of the 1135/65 (the Max used an older generation Intel Iris). Switch to using Windows Media Player which will at least let the videos inside BigBox play. Looks like we'll have to wait for Intel's drivers to improve here, or maybe if there's some way to force the startup video to play using Windows Media Player?
  5. @ashez2pheonix1992 GPD Win 3 by any chance? I'm having the same issue as you. I'm on the latest Intel Beta drivers. I've also tried toggling the video setting in the BigBox menu to Windows Media Player which fixes the videos inside BigBox but not the startup video (I think that may use VLC regardless of the setting).
  6. Bingo! That was it, just tested now and whilst it said it was going to move it to my Launchbox folder it actually did move it to the folder I've configured. Looks like just the label needs updating.
  7. Not sure if anyone else has mentioned this, but the import game wizard in beta-3 is not honouring the games directory configuration for the platform (regardless of my setting it wants to move games to the Launchbox/Games directory)
  8. What's the line of code to add Steam achievements to the theme? I'm on Lambda 1.1.1 at the moment and the RetroAchievements line looks identical to Default (I get the achievements on Default theme but not Lambda...) I was thinking it was this line <TextBlock Text="{Binding GoToRetroAchievementsString}"/> Edit: Figured it out. Needed to add the following to the bottom of the StackPanel that contains the MAME leaderboards: <ContentControl Name="AchievementList" Visibility="{Binding AchievementsVisibility}"/>
  9. Yeah, though this is the same 2015-2019 x64 instance. Not a different redistributable series. Essentially both LB and Gamestream work with 14.26.28720.3 but Gamestream breaks with the latest version of 2015-2019 x64 (at least on my machine and after a number of reformats...). LB requires me to install the latest version of the 2015-2019 x64 redistributable when I try to update my LB....
  10. @Jason Carr is there a way of updating Launchbox without forcing me to update the latest c++ redistributable? I've got an x64 version installed and my current version of LB 11.5-Beta 5 works with it fine, but when I attempt to install the official version it says that Visual C++ 2015 is required (which when installed currently breaks Gamestream for me.... 😕
  11. FYI - I've narrowed down the issue with Gamestream to the latest x64 Visual C++ 2015-2019 Redistributable so it's not a LB/BB thing. Raised an issue with Nvidia.
  12. Has anyone reported any problems with Nvidia Gamestream upon updating to a recent version of Launchbox? I just reformatted my PC after Gamestream seemed to not start correctly and being unable to diagnose it. Gamestream worked fine after a reformat until I started up BigBox and Launchbox (which required me to install the .NET Core and C++ resditributable. Following a restart Gamestream for me doesn't work again. Want to help debug this before I reformat again (and want to get Launchbox AND Gamestream working like I've always done...)
  13. Steam games seem broken on this build (launched via steam://rungameid/{gameid}). Get the system cannot find the file specified... Is that reproducible for anyone else or would you like me to send my data files across?
  14. Here's an example of how they are inconsistent now
  15. Ooh nice quality of life changes in this latest beta. If you're doing some localisation of dates/times, do you reckon you'll also be able to sort out the Last Played Date in LB too? Even more so now that the Added on and modified dates are now showing in European time, it's awkward that Last Played is still US time.
  16. @Jason Carr @Wanderer189 tried the image clean up with debug logs on this time, see a bunch of these in the logs: 2020-06-24 02:43:01 PM FIRST CHANCE EXCEPTION: Path cannot be the empty string or all whitespace. at System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(String path) 2020-06-24 02:43:01 PM FIRST CHANCE EXCEPTION: Path cannot be the empty string or all whitespace. at System.IO.Directory.CreateDirectory(String path) at (String ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows.Paths.CreateDirectory(String path) and then these 2020-06-24 02:50:27 PM Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows.Desktop.View
  17. Ooh that's a good shout, I do have QSync (a sync tool for my NAS) which runs across the folders... Also a few symlinked folders too in a few places...
  18. Hmm, mine is just a normal 6TB hard drive. Neither my Launchbox nor my 'Media' disk are my system disk either so wouldn't have thought permissions would have been a problem.
  19. I've also just had the same issue as you @Wanderer189. Clean Up Media identified about 10000 files it should move, but was only able to move 166 files in total... I also have my images stored in a custom directory (on a different drive to my LB install)
  20. Ah thanks for replying so quickly @C-Beats. That's a shame about LastPlayed, should I wait for the next poll to suggest this or do you still look at BitBucket items? Would be great to have dates localised 🙂
  21. Apologies in advance if this is the wrong section. I'm looking to make a few tweaks to the Default theme and am struggling to make dates (like LastPlayed) to be formatted in European format (ie. dd/MM/yyyy rather than MM/dd/yyyy). I've tried the following on line 158 in GameDetailsView.xaml and it doesn't work, any ideas what I'm doing wrong? <TextBlock Text="{Binding LastPlayed, StringFormat='dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm'}" And <TextBlock Text="{Binding Path=LastPlayed, StringFormat='dd/MM/yyyy HH:mm'}" but neither seems to have the effect.
  22. Yeah the MAME cores don't by default have all the plugins you need, so to use it with Retroarch you need to follow the instructions here https://forums.libretro.com/t/guide-libretro-mame-current-hiscore-history-gameinit-command/24452/6. Through the configuration of the plugin.ini file too you can specify where you want your hiscores to live (I have mine stored in my Google Drive folder to sync them across devices). Automatically setting up Retroarch I can imagine would be a stretch for Launchbox to do, but maybe a custom configuration option where you can override the default 'hi' folder
  23. Hey Jason, love this idea! I use MAME through Retroarch so I think it's looking in the wrong place for the hiscores.dat file and mame.ini files (they are located in my retroarch/system/mame folder). Any chance you could make the location where it looks for hiscores configurable?
  24. Have you thought about staggering the boxes when there are different shaped boxes rather than sticking to a grid? Think it could look cool with the new theme
  25. @Jason Carr anything that could be done to allow for numeric custom fields? This plugin is great, and would be even better if I could then create a Playlist like 'Games that can be finished in under 5 hours', or 'RPGs that take over 100 hours to complete'
