  1. Last night i had my Launchbox database error ( nice backup system, it works) and on trying to find out why came across lots of people having BSOD after latest windows update (17 April ) so the instability of windows, might be having a negative effect on launchbox. Just a thought.
  2. i think you might be looking at a DAS and not a NAS the 5 bay ones that are around £100 have a 10tb per drive limit it works the same way as a powered external hard drive with a usb3 lead
  3. I use a Qnap 4 bay nas, but only for roms. The main program and media are on my faster internal hard drives. also you need to consider the question of what type of raid. All drives will fail in the future and larger drives are more susceptible to this. a couple of points to think about are the maximum size of hard drive to put in (my qnap is 16tb per drive max max) do you need a NAS that can take different size drives , not all can. do you need a NAS or will a cheaper DAS system work (connected to pc via usb only) It is best to know what type of raid you thin
  4. Ok found a solution I just wanted to use my tablet as a marrquee screen, (in my case this is a android a7) I found a programe called Spacedesk to use run a windows driver and a app ( android or ios ) also works with phones then just enable marrquee in big box options. Will probberly do custom banners to show controls or notes to bypass game protections, maps or loading commands etc. ( more for computers than consoles). This would be nice if this was a baked in option, but have no idea how complicated this would be. Just thinking it must be more simple than la
  5. First thanks for reading I have 2 sets of front end 1 is coinops for visiters and llaunchbox for my never finish setup so coinops uses bat files a lot so how do i convert this mame64.exe cpc6128 -snapshot ".\roms\BruceLee_AmstradCPC.sna" -cfg_directory ".\cfg\BruceLee_AmstradCPC" -joy I'm thinking import the game1.sna but how to write parameters and pick up same game1 name Any help would be most wellcomed and will inprove my understanding in future setups as well. I can do this to every rom 1 at a time, but do feel ( or hope) theres a better way.
  6. yeh can kinda get there but it like selecting roms then saying only joking not realy not a rom. Launchbox is about making things easy to add in a very stratforword way. Same argument could have been made for Origin, Epic etc.
  7. also need a option to import bat files for the other pc games that slip through the net
  8. just added a Feature request on bitbucket https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/5670/feature-request-use-android-tablet-or Here below is my bitbucket request Now that a android version of Launchbox is no longer on the cards, would it be possible to use the android screen as a second screen. I have used a tablet as a remote desktop in the past as well as a remote control for pc based music software,so might be possible. It would be a shame to let all that programming knowledge from the android version of launchbox go to waste. And as most people have a smartphone
  9. if i can remember in my amiga days if all else fails use kickstart 1.2 (that was on the real amiga ,but might be worth a try)
  10. also Atari 2600 core has no paddle support. This only affects people who love breakout, kaboom and other bat and ball games.
  11. thanks for the reply. I can wait
  12. Just asking but would this be a good time to give the trackball option for arcade cabs
  13. same here s9+ UK playstore i get the same list as above
  14. This is just an idea With both RocketLauncher and Launchbox doing double duty on some features now, would it be a good time to have a global rocket launcher option ( just under or over led blinky phahaps). ie active = disable conflicting launchbox features Inactive = default (not using RL) The reasoning behind this is simply to keep focus on the ever expanding Launchbox features, but still not upsetting any RocketLauncher folks. Yes I know you can disable features individually but probably in time the list will expand. This would also simplify troubleshooting in the future.
  15. . Just wanted to let you know about this in case. The games are run in a fullscreen mode from a bat file. was put in Launchbox add in the bottom right When using the startup screen with Action Max this error pops up “could not initialize video display directdraw surface3:lock undefined error!” Tried all 4 possible options , hide windows in fullscreen mode, aggressive as well as both options at same time. The error is always the same. Works just fine (but ugly) with no startup screen. Will get around to trying other daphine seige games soon
  16. Sounds great. Retrogaming was never meant to be a have everything now. It’s a ever on going expanding hobby
  17. Sorry thought I would get away without a spelling checker ( I never seem to learn). I just meant a scraper similar to getting manuals, for maps, walkthrough’s (not that i need them 🙂 much) and a notes for old retro computers that need keyboard input to run games .
  18. Any chance of a overview about the type of pause mode your thinking of ie/ like a video pause so you can awnser a doorbell etc. or jump to a whole menu screen with options a simple overlay for controls / maps / protection sheets etc and if one of the latter two , will there be scrapper options
  19. A good start will be have a look at this youtube video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uHoLXoD5C7s Maverick's Arcade Ultimarc I PAC Ultimate I/O I find he's very good for info. Also has other vids for trackball, led blinky, aimtrak etc.
  20. are you still using the rocketlauncher fade in and out or the new per platform fade in and out with launchbox ( i belive you will need to turn the launchbox option off if using rocket launcher ,not sure ) ps/ miss your old how to vids ( never got my head around the whole technoparrot stuff) one last thing Thanks
  21. Just wanted to take a break myself, from being a long time lurker to say . Thank for your continued support and bug fixing. How i do so hate programs that have that annoying bug that never gets sorted.
