  1. Doublechecked and everything is selected like in your pictures @Zombeaver. I am going to try it on a second system and see if it gives me the same problems. Another thing I noticed is that it almost seems like it loads another controller-profile when launching through Big Box - to activate the ingame FS-UAE menu for instance, I suddenly need to push both the "View" and "Menu" button, instead of just the "Menu"-button. Is this part of another FS-UAE standard controller setup? And if so, I wonder what makes my config load that?
  2. First and foremost @Zombeaver: absolutely fantastic guide, thank you! I have followed it from start to end and (almost) everything is working perfectly – I did just encounter one small problem that I hope someone in here can help with though: Everything works perfectly when launched either directly from FS-UAE or Launchbox, but as soon as I start up Big Box and launch an Amiga-game, FS-UAE forgets the controller (as shown in the picture). I cant seem to remap or anything. When I quit everything and retest, everything again works fine directly from FS-UAE and Launchbox. I should also mention that F10 to Quit (as pr the AutoHotkey-script) still works in Big Box, so the controller is being registered in some instance. Has anyone experienced the same problem?
  3. Hi all, I have a small problem that is hopefully easily solvable: I recently booted up LaunchBox to find that my categories had been divided up into smaller subcategories. What had before just been “Arcade” is now “Atari Classics” “CPS 1” “Konami Classics” and so forth. I can see how some people want it to be sorted like that, but since I am using BigBox in an arcade cabinet used by people with no deep knowledge of gaming history, I would very much like to revert back to the “simpler” categories of “Arcade”, “Sega Saturn” and so forth. Is there a simple option for this in the menues, that I have somehow missed?
  4. Hi all, After previously having tried out pretty much all of the popular frontends out there, I found LaunchBox and the rest is history – once again, simply amazing work Jason and team. Anywho, the right frontend deserves a proper arcade cabinet, so I build what you see below. I wanted lots of colors and ended up with a design that mixes two of my favorite games, and I am pretty happy with the final machine.
  5. Thanks for the answer, but it still does not work - even with game controllers enabled in BigBox. I managed to somehow get everything reset, and reverted to running the i-Pac 2 in keyboard mode. However if anyone has encountered the same problems or has a solution, I would still like to hear it. Thanks.
  6. Hi all, I have a few annoying problems I was hoping someone in here could help me with. I am running an arcade cabinet with LaunchBox and an i-Pac 2. I have been running the i-Pac in keyboard-mode with almost no problems, but decided to try it with LaunchBox in gamepad-mode, since that works better with some emulators. But to my surprise it does not seem that I am able to remap the menu.controls of BigBox to work with the i-Pac 2´s gamepad-mode. Am I missing something here or is this not implemented yet? After switching the i-Pac back to keyboard mode, it now seems something has been messed up with the controls I had defined before in LaunchBox, and I was therefore hoping that I could reset the controls by deleting the BigBoxSettings.xml file in the Data-folder, but this does not work. Can someone tell me how to reset the controls in BigBox? And is there any reason why there is not some sort of standard controls in BigBox (like the arrow-keys always allowing you to control the menus, no matter what other controls you have set up yourself) not being part of the program? – knowing that you could always use the standard controls no matter how much you messed it up yourself, would be a stress-reliever from this users perspective. I hope all of this does not sound too negative – LaunchBox is far and away the best frontend I have ever used and is about 528 times easier and better to use in all other aspects, than any other frontend out there. Thanks.
