  1. I'm looking for the PAL manual for SMW on SNES - does anyone have a scan they could share? I know it's a dumb request, but I figured this would be a safe space for nonsensical nostalgia 😀
  2. @bvanwesten If you're getting no such file or directory from the command prompt python is probably not in your path variable (step 2). You can add it after setup by editing your system environment variables and adding the folder that contains python.exe.
  3. No, just the images. I wouldn't have space on my sd card for games and videos.
  4. I used it again recently, so it still works. But I'm not planning on adding more features anytime soon. Something you're after?
  5. +1 I spent a while getting the right boxart for my games, and don't want anything between that art and the background. An option to 'make it look like it used to' would make it easier for me to upgrade (yes, I know I shouldn't be so stubborn, this is just my personal preference).
  6. Apparently it's in the works: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/issues/1170 Personally, it's the 90s news and current affairs discs I want to see most.
  7. See step 2: if pip isn't recognised it means Python and its tools are not in your system path variable. Pip is a python package manager that downloads and installs modules. Pillow is the image resize module I chose for making pi-friendly versions of larger images. Python 3 installs by default to C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36 and pip is included in C:\Users\<User>\AppData\Local\Programs\Python\Python36\Scripts. Both folders should be added to the path environment variable.
  8. I'm having a heck of a time getting epsxe + lilypad 20151231175709 (the one that comes with pcsx2 1.4) working. The in-built epsxe plugin doesn't work with two controllers, but with lilypad two controllers (x1s) work just fine. But then I can't exit epsxe with escape or alt-f4. Either from launchbox BB using controller automation, or separately using kb. It's not a Launchbox issue, but I wonder if anyone here has got it working. If so, what were your settings and versions? I have tried the 3 exiting options inside the plugin (send esc, exit emu, and safe fullscreen).
  9. Can I get a text list of all the files that are missing from a given platform? I'm asking because my roms folder suffered some losses, but I have (badly sorted) backups. If I could get a list of filenames in whatever format I could automate their extraction/restoration.
  10. I went with RetroPie, and wrote an export script to reuse the metadata and pics from Launchbox.
  11. Launchbox-RetroPie Export View File Launchbox is great, but it doesn't run on linux. RetroPie is great, but the scraper is terrible. This script will copy your roms, metadata and images from LaunchBox for use with RetroPie. It will also reduce the size of the copied images to make them load faster on the Pi. Edit the attached file to choose your platforms, and decide if you want everything, or only your favourites. How to Install: Download and install Python Choose All Users and add it to your Path Open cmd, and type 'pip install Pillow' Download the attached file and edit it accordingly (specify your LaunchBox folder, desired output folder and platforms) Run 'python launchbox_retropie_export.py' Transfer the files to your Pi using WinSCP or similar Copy the gamelists to /opt/retropie/configs/all/emulationstation/gamelists Copy the roms and images to /home/pi/RetroPie/roms Enable the 'Parse Gamelists Only' option in EmulationStation Submitter dingodan Submitted 12/04/2017 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins

  13. Anyone else come up with a good workaround for this? I'm married to xinput because of my steam link.
  14. That'll have to do until we get per core and per system - cheers. This was my initial work around - I put the details of it above in case others run into the same issue.
