  1. Seems you were right Giuseppelll, My entire Launchbox Folder was set to read only, I changed that and updated to the latest Beta and Everything is working fine now. Thanks!

    Make sure your launchbox/data/platforms/windows.xml isn't set to read only.


  2. Thanks Giuseppelll, I have checked that and it seems the xml was not set to read only but the data folder its self was. Thing is once I downgraded LaunchBox it fixed the problem without me touching the data folder, so I can only imagine it must be a problem with one of the new beta's I was upgrading to. however I will upgrade again in a while and see if the problem persists. 


  3. Ah, big problem here with Steam games?? I just started LaunchBox to find that they are all missing? I have already backed up LaunchBox but as I readd the PC Games platform xml Bigbox sees the games at first but when I launch Launchbox it seems to all most delete every steam game? I have tried importing them again to find that they are added under the platform Windows, so I bulk edit the games to PC games (I use Rocket Launcher) and they all disappear?? Anyone know what's going on here??

    Those are my selections so far, gotta go to bed now, Thanks for your time letstalkaboutdune!




  7. Excellent letstalkaboutdune, will I just post a list or actually upload videos themselves?, By the way do you follow Comicbookgirl19 on youtube? She's made quite a name for herself and at the moment she is hosting an online book club covering the first three books of Dune?

  8. Have to agree with Hank_98 about the video being too dark man, I think it would be great if the video started off bright and then faded and then the logo appeared on top? Just a suggestion...

    These videos are awesome though I'd love to see ones for, Light gun games, Rhythm games, Flying Games, role playing games and Strategy games. I now these aren't all really arcade type games but they are Hyperspin Genres. I'd happly give 12 representative games for each one.

  9. Yeah I split all my games into Genre Playlists, I posted a video about it a few posts back, it was a hell of a job, my library is massive so it took days because of missing Genre info. They really need to do some work on the Genre titles for the Data base. A while back I saw a guy had posted playlists split into Genres. I'm thinking of adding my xml.

  10. yes you can manually edit each game genre and in bulk as discussed earlier in this post, but to do what has become now 2000 games would take forever and the main problem with launchbox is the inability to deselect a game when selecting them in bulk as I have to see the video for each one to get an idea of what genre it is.
