  1. Awesome, I've been waiting for alternate names improvments. ūüėÄ I live in Europe and I have european ROMs. I want to get the european titles from the games database. When adding/updating games, the title is set/updated to the US title. I've been testing 11.3-beta-1 and have some issues. Here is an example game: https://gamesdb.launchbox-app.com/games/details/5962 "Contra: Hard Corps" has the alternate name "Probotector" for region "Europe". The game in my collection has the file following info: ROM name: "Probotector (Europe) (En,Fr,De).md" Title: "Probotector"
  2. +1 for Clean Media on a single platform.
  3. I had the same problem with a black screen in Retroarch after updating Launchbox. I reinstalled Retroarch and now it works.
  4. It was a long time ago I write this batch script, but dig you put the 7z-files in seperate subfolders?
  5. I just tried with my Logitech Driving Force GT from 2007, it doesn't work. A newer Driving Wheel with XInput would probably work. But i don't know about analog inputs (e.g. "selecting games with the gas pedal"), I don't know if BigBox has support for that.
  6. I've attached an updated script if you want to convert from 7z to gz. Warning: Use at your own risk. The 7z source files will be deleted Description: The script batch converts ISO files from 7z to gz compression. There must be one ISO file inside each 7z file. The ISO file must have the same file name as the 7z file (excluding file extension). The 7z and the ISO will be deleted in the process. The script should quit if there is something wrong when unpacking the 7z. Usage: Put 7z_to_gz.bat and 7z.exe (from 7-zip) in the folder where you have your 7z files (no sub
  7. I really like these kinds of improvements. It would be nice to have the selected image types applied for "Tools" -> "Download Metadata and Media..." too.
  8. I don't know about RocketLauncher, but my guess is some kind of collaboration with a third party.
  9. Those are image categories. Go to Tools -> Options -> Images. See what type of images is checked under "3D Box Properties" and "3D Carts Properties".
  10. I've tried this nice new feature. I've noticed that it doesn't handle multi disc games. I think it should, or at least inform the user to do this manually.
  11. I did some tests in LB 7.11b7. I've testing the name matching on some games with the "Search for Metadata" button in the "Edit Game" dialog. If a game has "Pokémon" in the facing name and "Pokemon" in an alternate name. I get get a match for both "Pokémon" and "Pokemon" If a game has "Pokémon" in the facing name and no alternate names. I get a match only for "Pokémon". Everything works just as expected. But if "Pokémon" is used in the facing name, there really should be an alternate name with "Pokemon".
  12. What do mean by "break the DB"? The matching from LB didn't work? This was probably a problem when LB didn't check for alternate names. I think the alternate names should be used for all matching problems. I don't remember if the alternate name matching is only in beta? I haven't testing this a lot, but it seems to be working in the latest beta.
  13. I get the same error with this version. But it seems to be working. The file startup.mp4 is created in the Videos folder.
  14. There is a moderation "fight" right now between "Pokémon" and "Pokemon" for the facing name. This is my take on this (and interpretation of the guidelines). 1. The facing name should always reflect the game box (North America has first priority if it was released there): "Pokémon" 2. Use liberal use of alternate names for better matching: "Pokemon" (region "North America") The region "North America" makes this an alternate name for the facing name, because the facing name should be "North America" if it was released there. What do you think?
  15. Hi, I have some questions about alternate titles. 1. Is the region field mandatory now when adding an alternate title? I did add an alternate title without a region. The change was accepted, but the game doesn't display the alternate title. 2. What region should be set when there isn't a specific region attached to the alternate title? I have an example: Game: LostWinds: Winter of the Melodias Alternate name: LostWinds 2 "LostWinds 2" isn't attached to any region. MobyGames categorizes this as "Informal title" According to the guidelines the facing name is North America in
