4-Bit Adder

4-Bit Adder (2/7)



  1. ALRIGHT! SO! Sorry for the delayed response... again. I tried specifying that .exe as a "before" application and it didn't seem to work. I probably did something wrong, but there you go. However: I tried this Clickoff thinger and it worked with the exact result that I was aiming for. Once I specified the correct button on both FFXIII and FFXIII-2 (it didn't get XIII-2 right away for some reason. Again, probably me) I could quit both games immediately. I also have the same problem with epsxe wanting me to confirm that I wanted to quit and it worked with that as well. Thanks for checking out my problem. Now I just gotta get my htpc up to spec so I can run pcsx2 and dolphin like I want it to and then I'm gold.
  2. Sorry for the delay. Just got around to taking a picture of what's up. That little "Final Fantasy XIII" prompt in the lower left corner is the issue. What happens is when I "select+start" to exit out of game and drop immediately into BB (or LB) mode, the game screen freezes and that appears under the game. I can alt-tab out to get to desktop and see it, but it retains focus over any other window that I bring up. Launchbox, firefox, etc. All I need is for the "Yes" to be selected and then everything will end as normal. This same thing happens for Final Fantasy XIII-2, but the things that change are the titles of the prompt and task manager process. Both change to "Final Fantasy XIII-2." Otherwise everything is the same. As far as that alt-key thing goes, I can press alt-Y and it'll close the prompt. Hope that helps.
  3. Thanks for the help, will get back to you asap. I work third shift and it'll be a day or two until I can get access to the main TV again.
  4. Interesting. It says here on the second bullet point that one can "Remap keys and buttons on your keyboard, joystick, and mouse" which would be the first thing I'd try to do. However, would it be able to autodetect, of sorts, a popup box from a particular program and close it automatically if I wanted it to? Regardless, bookmarked. Thanks!
  5. Okay, I think I get what you're saying.... but how would I go about setting up this autohotkey thingamabob? I mean there is literally no normal way to avoid the dialog box. It's a really, REALLY stupid design choice. I just want to save my game and then quit, but noooooooooooo.
  6. So I have LB/BB set up with my XB1 wireless controller where if I press the (appropriate) "select" and "start" buttons, I immediately drop out of whichever game/emulator is currently loaded. I do the same thing with my Raspberry Pi. Nice and easy, right? This is all well and good as it works across emulators and PC games, until I run FFXIII/XIII-2. Whenever you quit out of the game, there's a prompt that comes up and asks you if you want to exit the program. No other game (Deadpool, Super Meat Boy, Marvel Ultimate Alliance as examples) I run does this and I don't know how to get around this "problem" of not being able to drop directly back into LB/BB. I have access to a wireless keyboard and mouse, but I'm trying not to use them as I just want to control everything from the controller. Plus, if any family members decide to give it a whirl I don't want them to get all frustrated because it's another extra step that they don't know how to easily solve. Also, what if I don't want to get up off the couch? I'm sure everyone has those days. Sue me, I'm freaking lazy sometimes. I suppose what I'm asking is if there's a way to configure and/or enable some option to allow the controller to at least click the "okay" or "yes" in the dialog box that pops up (but is invisible because the game screen still has priority). Does that make sense? Apologies if I'm a little incomprehensible.
  7. Hello! Just a simple question, really. If one were to do a OS reinstall how would they go about preserving LB/BB settings, files and whatnot? Could the whole "Launchbox" directory be moved to a different computer/hard drive and then moved back to the appropriate place afterwards? I have stuff set up via the wizard and would rather not have to go through that whole deal again if I can help it. Thanks for your time.
