  1. For the n64 platform could we get an accessory or a different controller instead of a 3rd N64 controller on the side? For Sega Genesis why is it displaying half orange half red? Same think on SNK Neo Geo CD with 2 different purples. I want all my backgrounds to be just 1 solid color. I don't see support for platform categories? Could support for text with details be added as a games view? Also would it be possible to move the game box art in the game view? See attached image. I'm running latest Colorful Dark and love it.
  2. I'm trying to have: Complete Xbox Collection, All Gamecube Exclusives + Gamecube versions of any game on GC/PS2, and all PS2 exclusives This will save massively on space and usually offer the best version of each game. There are some notable exceptions like Need for Speed Hot Pursuit 2 and others, but I've already taken those into account. A full xbox set is pretty straight forward, all gamecube exclusives straightforward, all ps2 exclusives straightforward, but does anyone have a list of crossplatform games that (at the time) were only on GameCube and PS2?
  3. For Sharp X68000 games, Is there a way to combine all .dim and .m3u files for a game into 1 single file that isn't just .zip .rar ? I want a single file that isn't an archive for each game like .CHD or .CSO like other platforms have. Thanks.
  4. Will we be seeing Battle.net and Twitch Launcher integration any time soon? Playnite already supports both these launchers. Since Playnite is open-source, maybe you could look at their code for how they did it?
  5. @vikingJust some of my ideas for improvement.
  6. Here's my region priorities, and none of them are Japan?
  7. For example on this game it correctly ID'd the game and got some of the media but not the 2d-box art?
  8. Just a catch-all for games with that type of content. I'm not literally saying games not appropriate for work.
  9. As much as I love going through and removing every NSFW game manually, it'd be a lot easier to remove/delete them as an import option just like with MAME. Could we get a NSFW database tag so we can filter these out? Or just filter unlicensed in general? I'm sure it'd get a lot of use. @CBeatt13 @Jason Carr @Lordmonkus @neil9000
  10. @Jason Carr RetroAchievements already pop-up in Retroarch so if anyone wants that feature I'd just recommend them RA. I think it's best to move on with a new poll, and if the old stuff is still in high demand it'll be shown there. Also wasn't pinball support coming before the next poll? Thanks.
  11. How is awarding ranks based on work & time invested in the database not community driven? Should heavily used platforms with correct information be left as open as others the sake of being left open? Disregard the ranks and dedicated support if you must, but will you at least consider: a: Conforming to 1 unified naming structure of platforms / better organization of platforms b: Adding some safe-guards to popular data (Mario, Zelda, ect) so current moderators don't have to waste time with bad requests
  12. Fixing the Database: #1 Dedicated Help: The database is crucial to the Launchbox experience, but it seems to always go to the wayside in favor of flashier features. It's even somehow still in "Alpha". So why not let Jason handle Launchbox development, and have designated volunteer(s) or a paid staff member handle the database? #2 Protect Correct Data: Values in the database should have an "Is this is correct?" option next to them that is only visible to moderators. Selecting "Yes" on this option + games that haven't been changed in years would go into the
  13. For example, when hovering over fighting games genre for gamecube, it showed a video of an FPS on the GameCube that wasnt inside the fighting games category. Is there a way to fix this?
  14. How important is it to you for the startup screen to fade into the game? Is it worth the performance sacrifice to you while playing the game? I could live without it but it would be appreciated. How important is it to you to use bezels? Are they worth the performance sacrifice to you? Very important. The systems that would need bezels (32-bit and earlier) won't suffer at all on most decent modern systems. What features are you most looking for with startup screens? Having a video of the original console's startup play What feature
  15. All I want to do is instead of importing 1 system at a time to import multiple systems. Would save so much time letting it import everything selected as different systems instead of individually importing 30 systems.
  16. That is if there are mulitple roms. For example a USA version and a European version, they have been consolodated into 1.
  17. I believe for the future integrity of the database and continued success of Launchbox these basic database features are necessary and should be considered. Please add a "heavy DB revamp" option in the next poll, and link to this post so the community can decide on it. Thanks. #1 Dedicated help. Jason has talked before about having another developer in the future. This new dev position should be someone working full-time on the database. At the very least, have someone part-time or a volunteer who is fully knowledged in the database working on features/fixes. The database is crucial to the
  18. An example of an incorrect name is "Daphne". Daphne is an emulator for Arcade LaserDisc games, not the name of the platform or machine. It should be re-named to "LaserDisc". An overarching problem is whether or not the company name should be included or not. All Nintendo and Sega consoles have the company names in the front, however many "NEC" consoles don't. There should be a standard of either having the company name, or not having the company name. @Jason Carr @Lordmonkus
  19. There are massive Bigbox collections on youtube showing 100's of platforms, all of them having HD platform videos. However, emumovies seems to be lacking platform videos for many uncommon systems that I'm looking for (Nuon, MSU-1, ect). Am I looking in the wrong place on the site, or is there some other big source for platform videos?
