    9.6-beta-1 Released

    The pause screen is my most anticipated feature.
  3. @Jason Carr is it possible for startup screens to show images that are contained in a platform's "Device" folder (example: "Launchbox\Images\Platforms\Atari 2600\Device"), instead of what's in the "Fanart" folder? I tried changing: <Image Source="{Binding BackgroundImagePath}" to: <Image Source="{Binding DeviceImagePath}" but that didn't work.
  4. Awesome, thank you man!

    Awesome theme, can you have it show platform backgrounds when there isn't a video available?

    BigBox memory issue on computers with 4GB ram

    4 GB is insanely low. LB caches all artwork as it encounters it, so even if someone isn't playing, attract mode alone will use up memory over time. That doesn't mean there is a memory leak, it means your system isn't able to keep up. Honestly 8GB is a low amount of RAM these days.

    Thanks man, I hope your holiday was good.

    Does this also copy videos?

    9.3-beta-1 Released

    If I remember correctly EmuMovies was hacked awhile back and they still haven't recovered from the hack which has caused a ton of issues. They are often offline lately, and that is probably the reason you are having issues, not LaunchBox.

    @keltoigael is there any way to change the fonts? Mainly the font for the titles, but if I could change both fonts that would be nice. Before I just wouldn't install the fonts, but now they seem to be coded into the theme.

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    A year or so ago you implemented a hold button method for selecting random games, that may be what he's talking about.

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    LaunchBox 12_15_2018 5_09_02 PM.mp4 I have this exact same issue when editing platforms, categories, and playlists. If I edit one and then try to edit another too soon, it will bounce back to the first item I edited. This often causes me to accidentally edit the first item again. I assume it's because I have a ton of playlists and categories (I went a little nuts with the new nesting and playlist features lol), and my PC takes a second to save the changes. Once it's saved the changes it goes back to that original item. This didn't happen when I didn't have a ton of playlists and categories, so I assume my PC is just unable to keep up. It's a minor annoyance, but not one I can blame on LB, but more my PC.

    There is a Toggle Complete plugin that adds that functionality to Big Box, here:

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    Yup that was it, thank you! I used Notepad++ to change IsAutogenerated to true and now those playlists are hidden.

    @Jason Carr Auto Populated playlists are still showing up in the Add to Playlist menu.

    9.2-beta-2 Released

    @Jason Carr It seems a lot of people want the start screens to say up for a bit longer. Would it be possible to add an option for a execution delay time? A slider just like the delay time but it delays the execution of the rom/emulator for whatever the given amount of time is.

    @GreenGriffon "Arcade - Control Panel" or "Arcade - Controls Information" seems like the perfect image category for this.

    9.2-beta-1 Released

    That’s not what he is talking about, he is saying that with the new playlist generator, there are too many to manage with the existing system. Playlists need a folder structure or an option to hide a playlist from the add to option.
  19. Version 1.5


    This is a modified version of the Fundamental theme by @Grila. The only parts I modded were the background colors, and the color hex codes. It also includes some custom platform covers I created. If you like this theme please check out the original Fundamental theme:
  20. I use Guide and Start because I have multiple shortcuts that are activated by pressing Guide and another button. This is my setup: Guide + Start: Pause Screen Guide + D Pad Up: Toggles Bezels Guide + LB: Changes my primary display to my TV Guide + RB: Changes my primary display to my monitor Guide + B: Turns off the controller Guide + Back (select): Emulator Specific shortcut, in Cemu it toggles TV/Gamepad screen. In PCSX2 it Toggles between hardware and software rendering. This will also be the way I access RetroArch's Pause screen after BB get's it's own Pause. Guide + L3: Runs a script that closes all emulators, BigBox, and any other emulator related programs, and then re launches BigBox. Good for when everything locks up. Guide + R3: Closes all emulators. Basically an emergency kill switch like above, but it only kills emulators, not BigBox or anything else. These shortcuts are why it's very important for me to have an option to use the Guide button as a shift key. Though I could use AHK to do the same function if need be.
  21. I forgot about controller layout, that is very important too. The easiest way would probably be a new image category, one that is available for both platforms and games. So if a game doesn't have a controller layout image, it will default to the platform controller layout image. This would allow everyone to create their own layouts, with any look they want. It would also allow for users to go as deep into making layouts as they want. If you just want platform layouts you could do that, but if certain games have a different layout, you could show that for that game. Or even make layouts for every game if you wanted. If it is an image category, I think it should be view-able on it's own via an option like "View Controller Layout", and shouldn't show up with the "View images full screen" option, if possible.
  22. One other very important feature for the pause screen, Xbox Guide button support. You should be able to invoke the pause screen by pressing the Guide button, or better yet, have the option to use the Guide button as a shift key, and then another button to invoke pause. So let's say Hold Guide and press Start for pause. That's how I currently have RetroArch setup, and it would be amazing to do the same in BB.
  23. A pause screen is the most important feature to me. The ability to exit the game, and view game manuals is the main reason I want it. I don’t really care about other RocketLauncher features like save states. Just a uniform menu for exiting games would really round out the BigBox experience.

    Fundamental Dark

    You can edit the image files in "Launchbox\Themes\Fundamental Dark\Images\Core". The files you want to edit are "game_controls.png" and "game_controls_h.png". I've attached a template to make it a little easier. Buttons Template.psd

    9.1-beta-1 Released

    Yes to all of this! I literally was thinking of asking for these features the other day. I’d love to have programs/games in the root category. Having the ability to add to favorites, rate, and mark as broken while locked is also high on my list of features I’d love.
