    I believe there is a missing plugin from both the NES themes.
  2. This is looking really nice, how's the progress coming along?
  3. @Zombeaver Thanks, I'm currently in the process of converting my .bin/.cue files to .chd and for the multi-disk games i'll just create the .m3u file for them I think.
  4. @Zombeaver When setting up multi disc games for ps1, is it okay to create the .m3u file and then just wrap all the files together in a zip and have launchbox pointed to it, or does it need to remain unzipped?

    8.3-beta-1 Released

    @Jason Carr Before release of LB.Next could you consider moving ScummVM and DOSBox so by default they are created under the Emulators folder?
  6. Is it at all possible to create dynamic themed backgrounds in launchbox? Here’s a link to a PS4 theme to get the idea.

    Thanks, if it would help I can send you the settings.xml file

    8.2-beta-1 Released

    @Jason Carr The latest version of Cemu (1.11.6b) has recently introduced a game list parser that creates a settings.xml file that lists the game name, path, version & DLC version. Could this be useful for launchbox to help with the import process, avoiding having to rename each game manually?

    I think having the separation between the game select wheel and the game information box is better, so image 2 for me

    That layout is a lot nicer, easier to identify games during scrolling. The heading text sizes look good too.

    Yeah that looks good. I agree about using a generic d-pad. If people want to replace it with a different icon they can.

    Looking good! Would it be possible to replace the "free play" in the lower-hand corners with a controller icon. Something along the lines of what is found in Grila's Switch theme.

    I created a guide for importing Blizzard games. https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/40100-guide-how-to-import-blizzard-games-into-launchbox/#comment-251333 After import you can edit the platform for the games from Windows to what ever you desire. If you need help on how to, I can edit the guide and add that if if you think it'd be helpful.

    Guide: How to Import Blizzard Games into LaunchBox

    I don't actually play WoW so I'm not 100% sure. I believe it launches to a character select screen but then you might need to select things. If you find an answer, I'd be interested to hear it.
  15. This is a guide on how to import Blizzard Games into LaunchBox correctly. Aim If logged into Battle.net/Blizzard app, clicking on a game will immediately launch the game. This will avoid the situation where you click on a game and the Battle.net/Blizzard app opens and waits for you to select a game. Let's get started: First of all, we need to create shortcuts that bypass the launcher for each game. To keep things organised, I first create a folder called "Shortcuts", that I place inside my "Utilities" folder in my LaunchBox directory "\LaunchBox\Utilities\Shortcuts" to keep everything neat and tidy. You can create this folder anywhere though. Inside the Shortcuts folder: right-click - new - shortcut. In the dialog box "Type the location of the item" enter one of the following: For Diablo3:- enter "battlenet://D3" For Hearthstone:- enter "battlenet://WTCG" For Heroes of the Storm:- enter "battlenet://Hero" For Overwatch:- enter "battlenet://Pro" For Starcraft II:- enter "battlenet://S2" For World of Warcraft:- enter "battlenet://WoW" Hit next and give the shortcut a name, the title of the game. Once all the shortcuts you want have been created, we can open up LaunchBox. Select all the shortcuts you want to import and drag and drop them into the main LaunchBox game panel, this will begin the import wizard. For "What type of game files are you importing" select "ROM Files" For "What platform are you importing games for" select Windows For "Choose an emulator" select whichever you want, we will be removing this association later. Continue following the import wizard, choosing your desired settings. Your games should have been imported successfully into the Windows Platform. Finally, we just need to remove the association of the emulator with the games. Select all the games that were just imported. Right-click - edit (Ctrl + E) For "What would you like to change", Select "Emulator" from the drop down box. Leave the "Value" box blank and click next. Confirm that you want to update the Emulator Field to "{None}" Exit out of the bulk edit wizard. There we have it, you should have successfully imported all your Blizzard games into LaunchBox.
