    Mame + FBA

    I've had a nice collection of games running with FBA. CPS 1,2,3, Cave, Neo Geo MVS etc, found on a rather pleasurable site. I got this collection mainly because I could never really find out what systems were included in the MAME set. Now we have platform categories which is cool but there are a few little bugs in the creation of the playlist but that's not the reason for this post. So the FBA collection was added as a platform called FBA and scanned as Arcade. I then recently imported my mame collection and found many games missing even when selecting import all. I'm sure the importer when processing files logs what has been added. If you happen to queue up the same folder that you imported earlier which happens to include some new roms then it will ignore the old and import the new. So my question is... If my FBA collection was imported first under the FBA platform and scrapped as Arcade and then my MAME collection, could LB not be importing Neo Geo MVS and other systems because I've already imported them under my FBA platform and scrapped as arcade? Sorry I did waffle a bit, but I hope you guys understand what, I'm getting at.

    two platform videos?

    Click on issues/request at the top of the page and request this as a feature. If it gets enough votes it could be implemented

    I'd seen the handheld pc you mentioned and thought it looked promising, however I also found this which looks to me a modular system where you are able to upgrade components. Regardless it great that LB/BB runs on these systems. Now which one to buy? https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/smach-z-the-handheld-gaming-pc-games#/

    two platform videos?

    I don't think so... It depends what you mean. Do you want two videos for one system and to be able toswitch between them? You can't do that I'm 100% sure. Each video is named exactly as the platform is. The only way I can see to achieve this would be to join two platform videos together with a fade in between. Otherwise I think unless you request this as a feature you are out of luck

    FBA 029739 Help

    I followed Brad tutorial on setting up FBA, using the collection he refers to in the video. I imported this a while back but never configured the controls. Today I thought that I'd do this and I'm a bit stuck. Firstly let me say that I'm using a Xbox 360 pc controller and have this running from a wireless dongle. I see that in order to map controls you have to load a game, which I have done. This is where Im a little uncertain on how to continue. So I select player one and then I'm given a number of options: joystick 0-2, x arcade, hot rod. If I'm looking at mapping 2 Xbox controllers will I use joy stick 0 and 1? I've read somewhere that you have to configure each game and the mapping is not universal, is this true? Lastly, I can't seem to get the games to run full screen, any help with this would be much appreciated The error I get when running FBA is as follows, but I think this is the error Brad mentions in his video, but will post it just in case it is what's stopping me from going full screen

    Platform Categories

    NO WORRIES GUYS, A REBOOT FIX THINGS FOR ME I have 7.9 beta 2 installed and I wanted to check if I'm doing the right thing in BigBox to get this up and running. Initial I had selected platform categories in LB thinking that was all that had to be done. When I ran BB it was just showing the various platform. I went into the settings and selected show platform categories as default, but BB just displays my platforms rather than my platform categories. Usually with things like this BB/LB creates a folder structure for thinks like this, but has not. I yet to get some logos for this but I assume there will be generic lettering for these categories until I do? cheers guys

    I'm happy personally that we have the arcade playlists automatically populating. I for one could never find out with any great certainty what games in the Mame set go into each of playlist or for that matter what systems were in the Mame set. If it's automated correctly then I'm happy, and because I've not had a Hyperspin setup with all the Arcade categories I wouldn't know the total number of games I should expect to see in each. The only issue I've seen, for those of you who missed my earlier post, is certain games from other platforms are showing in the playlist, which Jason has said he will be working on. I did notice some games not importing a while back when I was using a merged set, but now I have .183 non merged imported. One game I really wanted that would not import was Pacland. The .183 set seems to work ok and Pacland is there, but as for any other games, without a list of what should be there I couldn't really comment further.

    Jason, did you work on the issue I pointed out, where after importing my MAME collection, certain other platforms were showing in the Arcade playlists? If yes do you need some testing done, I'm happy to import my mame collection again.

    I will do! It might be a massive list however because just before I switched of my PC I had a look in a few other places and FBA stuff is in CAVE and Konami Classic. Still, I'll check back tomorrow night guys

    It's a pain though to pick out some of the FBA stuff, although in most cases the game theme videos are different for the MAME stuff. I won't be able to revisit this until 5pm GMT but I'm happy to plod along and get a nice big list going. However at the speed Jason works it will be done and dusted soon I'm sure

    I'm just over the moon that the feature is there. I always hated just having one big Arcade folder. Thank you Jason

    Sure will start something now Capcom Classics playlist (show the following games) (Wii U) Super Mario Maker (Atari ST) Willow, Strider, Mercs, Commando, (Final Burn Alpha) Dokaben, Dugeons and Dragons Shadow over Mystara, Dark Stalkers, Capcom Sports Club, Capcom Bowling Capcom CPS-1 (Wii U) Super Mario Maker (I deleted this in the above playlist but all games above appear in CPS-1 so I assume it would have been here also) (Atari ST) Willow, Strider, Mercs Capcom CPS-2 (Atari ST) 1944, Here is a start to the list, I have an early start tomorrow so I'll have to continue this at a later date. I also have the FBA collection imported into LB that Brad mentions in his tutorial and it appears some of those games are showing in some of the playlist. I kind of jumped around a bit but decided to concentrate first on the Campcom Classic. I hope this helps until I can get the list finished, maybe this is unique to me In answer to your question, all I did was a mame import and let LB create the playlists, apart from that I don't recall doing much more
