  1. You are creating a new Profile....I didn't go through exhausting effort of removing stuff.
  2. You might want to check with the Covenant......
  3. Yes. this is done on my dedicated arcade. So, I have two accounts. One allows me to just do general maintenance / admin access and the other user just launches bigbox on startup
  4. Create a New User Account (windows 10) 1. Press Window Key and the letter S to bring up windows Search 2. Type User Accounts and select Settings 3. select manage another account 4. Add a new user in PC setting 5. Add someone else to this PC 6. I don't have this persons sign-in information 7. Add user without a Microsoft Account 8.

  5. When I get round to it and install MS WIN 10 I will also need to go through the MS BS List of Must Remove......
  6. I will be upgrading my AMD A8-7650K Processor for the following: ASUS Prime A320M-K AMD Ryzen AM4 DDR4 HDMI VGA M.2 Micro-ATX A320 Motherboard AMD RYZEN 3 2200G Quad-Core 3.5 GHz (3.7 GHz Turbo) G.SKILL Ripjaws V Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 288-Pin DDR4 SDRAM DDR4 2400 (PC4 19200)
  7. The case is an ATX. so I need to check if it can accommodate the Micro ATX. PSU is fine OS might be tied to the MOBO/CPU (Not sure if that is transferable). Thanks for the suggestion.
  8. Current Machine AMD A8-7650K Processor AMD-R7-250 Graphic Card 8GB RAM (2015) 64GB SSD 2TB 7200 HDD, New Build (HDD and SSD or being ported from existing computer) https://pcpartpicker.com/user/NJDave71/saved/HQ3D8d Option 1 can anything be done to Improve existing machine? Option 2 Go with New Build?
  9. I recall audio issues about 10 years ago and they are specific to the emulator. Sometimes when exiting games the audio driver crashes and logging out or reboot is the only resolution. Check the Daphne forums. Nothing to do with launchbox
  10. MAME 0.195 No Nag with Default Artwork View File MAME .195 No Nag with Default Artwork Here's a build of MAME based on 0.195 with no nag screens and it supports default artwork. MAME FOLDER mame (root folder) | mame64.exe (0 .195 ) | WhatsNew.txt | +---artwork | horizont.zip (Default Horizontal Artwork) | vertical.zip (Default Vertical Artwork) | \---ini horizont.ini (allows the fallback artwork) vertical.ini (allows the fallback artwork) NOTE Rename your mame64.exe to mame64.exe.old (this way if you have issues you can just revert back to your Original copy). Unzip the files in your Mame folder. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ What is No Nag This is the screen that says hit "Ok to Continue" when you open a ROM for the first time. This screen has been suppressed. How can I use my own default In game Artwork I have provided two zip files that I use for my default Vertical and Horizontal games. you can search for MAME In game artwork using your favorite search engine. Mr Do is a good starting point for History and downloading some artwork. If you have favorite cabinet that you want to use for your defaults, simply make a copy and rename it to horizont.zip or vertical.zip.

  11. Has anyone used the Following IPlatformCategory IPlatform IPlaylist If so please PM me have a few questions.
  12. I am not sure why you are getting these errors.
  13. Try this in Windows 1. Open Search button (Cortana) and type PowerShell and Select PowerShell App. 2. Type the command unblock-file -path (Then the full path of the file you want to unblock 3. Repeat for each file Example unblock-file -path "C:\Launchbox\Themes\Aeon Nox\Plugins\HelperControl_v3.dll"
  14. Thank you for confirming and I will see what I can do.
  15. the Total Game count only works with the English translation.
  16. Desculpe, isso só funciona com a tradução em inglês
  17. @Rincewind I just tested your theme and the Total Game Count is working fine. The City Hunter uses the same Path=Details but returns everything.
  18. @lezok In big box go to options > Platform Details > Show Total Games and make sure it's checked. otherwise you will see "0" for the games count.
  19. Ha Beat me too it..... I used that in the first beta release of Aeon Nox but couldn't use Transitions.
  20. I sent the method to @Jason Carr if there is something that is missing i can get a out a fix.
  21. That method parses the activegame.details and looks for total game: and gets the number. I am not getting this error so it's hard to catch. @Jason Carr I can pm the code.
  22. i am sorry I don't have an answer on this error outside of DLL blocking hoping @Jason Carr can advise.
  23. I just downloaded a fresh copy and I had to Unblock the .DLLs in the theme plugin folder. see the screen shot (Windows 7) 1. in the ..\LaunchBox\Themes\Aeon Nox\Plugins on windows 10 or 7 you have to unblock these dlls (On both my home and work system this is somthing i have to do) right clicking on the .dll Other wise the theme will crash.
