  1. That's the weird thing...almost every system is set to show boxes, but the playlist shows Discs Like if I go into PS2 or Dreamcast their set to boxes but in the playlist they show as Discs??
  2. Hi all, First of all congrats to Jason for creating such an amazing Application!!! I think this may be a known problem but I can't find the original topic again, I have created a playlist of various console games I want to play but when i'm in BigBox and select my playlist some of the playlist game images show as a disc and some as a box and some as a 3D box, there seems to be no way to change this, I have tried creating a new playlist from scratch but no matter what I do I get the same problem? can anyone help me out here?
  3. Ah, must of picked it up wrong.....
  4. Just updated to the Beta 2 and was watching the YouTube stream, you said you fixed the slowdown between Platform Categories and Platforms. It certainly seemed fast on your system, Unfortunately I still have this problem, when I select a Category it takes about 3 seconds for BigBox to respond. I'm running on a powerful machine so I know its not that?
  5. Jason can I ask you does setting MAME scraping as Arcade set to North America, and Arcade set to North America look for different versions of each game? For example when I deleted my Arcade platform and created a MAME platform (for Rocket Launcher) and re-added my MAME games I ended up with different game versions, I know because I had to set up my controller again for the new versions. Is this a bug or has something changed in the way launchbox adds MAME games??
  6. After deleting my Arcade library instead of just renaming it to MAME, and deleting all files I could find to do with Arcade and deleting the playlists then completely re-adding my MAME and adding it as MAME when selecting platform and not Arcade and then re importing the MAME library from scratch it appears that the playlists appear correctly, I can't be completely sure if ALL the games for the playlists are there but there is certainly more than before, Having said that I'm only halfway through importing a 8000 game MAME library but so far things are looking better. EDIT: Unfortunately this did not solve the problem, Yes I appear to have a few more games in my library but the playlists still list some games as arcade and they don't show up.
  7. I also named Arcade to MAME for the sake of Rocketlauncher and a lot of the playlists are empty or missing loads of games. I tried editing the playlist with notepad++ to change "Arcade" to "Mame" but it made no difference. I think the Playlists are a great feature so I would like to get them working....
  8. Ah its better now, I am happy using Rocketlauncher for everything, I tried the autohotkey method but I couldn't get it working with my Xbox One controllers, apparently its a common problem with Ahk. Thanks anyway.
  9. Ok, using a batch file to launch Naomi I just could not get working but I found a work around. I was using Rocketlauncher for my Consoles and then separate emulators for arcade games, this was because I was having problems getting arcade emulators to work through rocketlauncher with launchbox as a frontend, Anyway I deleted Rocketlauncher and re-added it and the arcade emulators started working through it. I must of checked a box or done something wrong in Launchbox, but now that everything is running properly I can use the Keymappers in Rocketlauncher and with the choice of JoyToKey and Xpadder at my disposal I was able to get everything up and running the way I wanted, Thanks for your help anyway Crush.
  10. That is what I am trying to yes. The problem I was having is that controller automation option in Bigbox does not work in my setup. it constantly crashes Bigbox. So I'm trying to create a batch files to launch emulators so that I can exit emulators by holding down the back button on my Xbox one controller. I think, thanks to your help, I should be able to achieve this but its just a pain trying to get Demul running in Naomi mode.
  11. Excellent Crush! the joytokey profile launches with Demul now, Thanks for that! Now my only problem is that Demul launches in Naomi mode but it wont run the game directly. I keep getting the Naomi game select screen, where I have to chose a game to run. This is how the batch file looks now: set rom=%1 start "" "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\JoyToKey_en\JoyToKey.exe" "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\JoyToKey_en\Demul Naomi.cfg" "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\demul.exe" -run=naomi -rom=[ROM] taskkill /F /im JoyToKey.exe
  12. Hi Crush, if place start before the Joytokey line I get a message that joytokey can not find my config file? I am trying this at the min but demul will only launch when I exit Joytokey and even then it does not launch a game? "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\JoyToKey_en\JoyToKey.exe" "Demul Naomi.cfg" "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\demul.exe" set rom=%1 taskkill /F /im JoyToKey.exe
  13. Sorry for the double post I originally posted this in the wrong Forum. Hi all, I'm relatively new to batch files and I am trying to launch a Joytokey profile with Demul. I have managed to get Joytokey to launch and load a profile when I select a game but that's it, I can't get Demul to open and load a game. Here is my batch file: set rom=%1 "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\JoyToKey_en\JoyToKey.exe" "Demul Naomi.cfg" "H:\GAMES\Emulation Software\Emulators\demul07a_180816 SEGA NAOMI\demul.exe" %1 taskkill /F /im JoyToKey.exe Please help! really need to get this going!

  15. Hi All, I have spent a lot of time trying to work this out but can't seem to get it. I use Rocketlauncher as my default emulator and I have an escape button in the keymapper in it for every emulator, only I can't for MAME and Supermodel as they have to be used through Launchbox only. Thats fine with MAME I can just add my ESC button in the UI but with Supermodel I am having serious difficulty. I don't know much about Autohotkey scripts but if someone could tell me how or point me in the right direction so I can finally map my Xbox One controller to exit Supermodel it would be much appreciated...
  16. I been waiting to see if this would be implemented, The problem I have with putting a number in front of platforms is that I use Rocketlauncher as my emulator and putting numbers before platforms completely messes up the whole setup. Jason we hyperspinners need this!!
  17. This problem appears fixed in Launchbox 7.4 beta 3
  18. Hi all! I'm having a problem with the most recent builds of BigBox, When I start it as soon as I go into a platform the first video for the game I am on will continue to play in the background while I am browsing through other games. It's not always the first game but as I browse it's only a matter of time before this problem starts. Very annoying to say the least. I can't run in windows media player mode as this causes an instant crash. I am running on a 4k monitor with Windows 10 and an ASUS GTX 980ti with 16gb of ram. Can someone please help me solve this problem, this did not use to happen with previous builds.
  19. llhank! thanks for your detailed response! I was really surprised I couldn't find a tutorial like this on the forums any where! Thanks again, -Rob
  20. Hi All! Lovin Bigbox so far (just waiting for the new Rocketlauncher plugin to get everything running smoothly), anyway, I can't seem to find a tutorial on this any where, how do I go about creating a JoyToKey profile for one or two windows games? not an entire system. It seems like it should be easy enough but I just can't get it to work?? Any help greatly appreciated!!
