4-Bit Adder

4-Bit Adder (2/7)



  1. Thank you so much. That did it. I never would have found that on my own... It was pointing to the general screenshots folder which for some reason didn't pull in the sub folders I guess... Thanks again.
  2. So I'm using the defualt theme and I had both box art (arcade flyers) and screenshots (gameplay) displaying in the menu. After a restart only the Arcade flyers are showing. I have set the image priority's to show arcade flyer first and screenshot gameplay next. But I cant get my screenshots back. In fact if I set LB or BB to show screenshots instead of the box fronts, it shows that I have no screenshots... And yet if I navigate to my Launchbox folder to images and then the platform (arcade) I have a folder full of screenshots... If I right click on a game and go to EDIT... It shows only one image available, the Arcade flyer.... So it seems Launchbox has lost the path to my screenshots folder and I cant find any way to point it back...
  3. I need to know how to use my player 1 controller and not my player 2 controller in BB. The problem I'm running into is that I have buttons 9 and 10 on controller 1 mapped to volume up and down. And buttons 9 and 10 on controller 2 mapped to Player 1 and player 2 coin for mame. So when I hit the coin buttons the volume goes up and down. I have "use all controllers" unchecked in bigbox but it still uses both controllers. Is this possible?
  4. Okay I selected the controller in Launchbox and a drop down appears but it only has one option. It says X-input/xbox 360/Xbox one controller, something to that effect. Which is correct, I am using Xbox 360 controllers as the brain for my arcade controls... If I click it in Bogbox nothing happens. Like I said the controller is recognized and works in bigbox but I cant map anything in either LB or BB. The music setting worked, so that problem is sorted. So thanks for that...
  5. I'm not at home right now, but I believe I did try selecting the name of the controller and nothing happened but I will try it again as when i get home. I tried unchecking the "Enable Music On Screen Display" but then the music didn't play at all. I will try that again as soon as I can. Thanks
  6. So I have a couple weird issues. First of, my controllers are recognized in launchbox/bigbox. Work in the menus fine. i can select a game and play it and all that. But I can't map any functions within LB or BB. Really what i'm after is to map a couple buttons to press together so I can exit a game and one button each for volume up and down. But when I go to map a button in either LB or BB its just says awaiting input and nothing happens. I have to press escape on a keyboard to get out of it... I try both controllers and no response. However the controllers work in the menus and it recognizes them as Xbox 360 controllers in the menu. Second, when my background music plays in Bigbox I get a pop up with the name of the song that has started to play. I'd like to get rid of that popup. I have no idea if this is coming from Bigbox or from windows media player or what... And how to disable it, if possible. Thanks for any help.
  7. Hi, i'm looking for simple-ish themes that evoke an old computer system like Dos, Commodore 64 or Apple II ect... This is the only one I could find and there is a comment stating that it doesn't seem to work right with the latest versions of Bigbox... https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/255-ms-dos-bigbox-theme/?tab=comments It need to be 4:3 compatible by the way. Thanks
  8. Hello all I was wondering if there is any way to control the games list with left/right on a joystick instead of up and down. I'm hoping to use a steering wheel to control big box and the only directions it supports is left/right... Thanks
  9. Hi all, I was wondering if its possible to get rid of the platforms in big box mode all together and go directly to the games list with no platform. Essentially having one large list of all game regardless of platform. I'm building a 4 player arcade machine that will have about 30 PC games and a few emulated games, I'd like them to be on one list and I don't want to see windows, or gamecube ect... Thanks
