  1. Hey I tried this tonight and could not get it to work. I have imported some Amiga CD32 games and few of them did not import the covers.i.e. "Alien Breed : Tower Assault". I have saved a cover to the relevant images folder but it still does not work. I even tried to rename it "Alien Breed Tower Assault" without the colon : (I also renamed the title in the data file) and the title change worked (the game title has updated in Android Launchbox) the thumbnail picture did not work and I still have a blank no picture thumbnail on the game. Can you clarify the steps you have taken?
  2. Hi all I figured out how to do this using Sonic Fan's idea of "remove everything but the cues". If you only save the .cue files to your appropriate folder and than import the games in Android Launchbox, it will pick up only the cue file and add the relevant game without showing any duplicate games. Once this is done, copy the remaining files for each game in to the relevant folder. i.e. if you have a game called "GameA" and you have GameA.cue, GameA.bin & GameA.WAV . Copy only the GameA.cue file to the folder that you will search to import the game in Launchbox. Once the game is set up in Launchbox, you can then copy the .bin & .wav files over to the same folder which will allow the game to work when selected in Launchbox. I hope I've described this in an easy to follow manner but if anyone is stuck with this, feel free to reach out.
  3. Hi Russ. Thanks for your message. I am running an NVidea 6Gb card and I have 16gb ram on my pc. You Launchbox has run fine for me for years (even on a lesser before I upgraded 2 years ago). Ins only in the last few month this has started happening. Also I run Big Box without nay issues at all. Thanks for trying to help though, appreciate any assistance. Ta Elcias
  4. OK so I have continued to attempt to sort this out. I managed to use the clean up media function to delete duplicated images. I then closed the app without attempting to start or click on any game. Upon launching again, just crashed straight away. Attempted launch again then the splash screen with the new update features turns up again (this is after having ticked the box to not open that screen in future). Note that when that splash screen starts, it seems to help LB open and run. Again after closing the splash screen, I attempted to run the Clean Up Media tool this time for videos & music. Crashed with the following error report. The parameter is incorrect App: LaunchBox Version: 10.15 Type: System.ComponentModel.Win32Exception Site: Void ProcessQueue() Source: WindowsBase at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.ProcessQueue() at System.Windows.Threading.Dispatcher.WndProcHook(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled) at MS.Win32.HwndWrapper.WndProc(IntPtr hwnd, Int32 msg, IntPtr wParam, IntPtr lParam, Boolean& handled) at MS.Win32.HwndSubclass.DispatcherCallbackOperation(Object o) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.InternalRealCall(Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs) at System.Windows.Threading.ExceptionWrapper.TryCatchWhen(Object source, Delegate callback, Object args, Int32 numArgs, Delegate catchHandler) Recent Log: 4:55:28 PM Exception
  5. Hi Sundogak. Thanks for the response and the advice. Renaming the entire images folder doesn't help (still crashes at start up) but I do notice a difference when renaming just the Cache-LB folder in the Images folder (I tried this as my BigBox works without issue and shares the same images folder, but different cache folder). Renaming it to Cache-LB.test let me start LB and allowed me to select Tools, options. Seems to work fine whilst in there but as soon as I leave the options window and revert to LB, when I clicked on an item to edit its properties, LB crashes again. Here is the debugging report form that attempt. 2020-05-25 04:28:45 PM DataManager.SaveInternal started. 2020-05-25 04:28:45 PM Saving InputBindings.xml... 2020-05-25 04:28:45 PM Saving ListCache.xml... 2020-05-25 04:28:46 PM Saving Settings.xml... 2020-05-25 04:28:46 PM DataManager.SaveInternal completed successfully. 2020-05-25 04:28:46 PM Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows.Desktop.ViewModels.MainViewModel.window.Activated Start 2020-05-25 04:28:46 PM Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows.Desktop.ViewModels.MainViewModel.window.Activated Before JoystickTimer Enabled Set 2020-05-25 04:28:46 PM Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows.Desktop.ViewModels.MainViewModel.window.Activated Before Resume Video 2020-05-25 04:28:46 PM Unbroken.LaunchBox.Windows.Desktop.ViewModels.MainViewModel.window.Activated Before Check Already Focused 2020-05-25 04:29:11 PM Music.Play Start 2020-05-25 04:29:11 PM Music.Kill Start 2020-05-25 04:29:11 PM Music.Kill Finished 2020-05-25 04:29:11 PM Music.Play Empty Music Path 2020-05-25 04:29:11 PM Music.NotifyTrackList Start 2020-05-25 04:29:11 PM Music.NotifyTrackList Invoke WPF Appreciate the help/feedback as always. Like I say, Big Box works fine so I can play my games. However I really need LaunchBox to work again so I can edit/add games going forward. Also to allow me to export to Android LB which I also have. Many thanks Elcias
  6. So I've updated to the latest LB but still crashes when loading for me. Can anyone help please?
  7. The Loading Interface finally closed down leaving the full error message in view as follows: Source and destination path must be different.

  8. Ok so I tried deleting the settings.xml file again tonight and then launched LB again. This time I am receiving an error message window. Prblem is I cannot read all of it as the Loading Interface remains in front obscuring my view. This is what I can make out from the error window. Source and destination path must be different.

  9. This was the temp fix given to me last last time but just doesn't work for me anymore. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated as I can no longer edit or add games e.t.c. unless there is a way of doing this directly in BigBox?
  10. I did just notice when LB starts the processor is going max almost to 100% for a couple of seconds which seems strange. I see it go up to 97% or 98% and memory usage shoots up to over 1 Gb then crashes
  11. No its like it closes itself. No LB or BB process in task manager after its crashed/closed.
  12. Hi C-beats No error window pops up. The app starts, shows me the window info re new update stuff added e.t.c. Then before I have a chance to do anything, the app just closes and disappears. Strange thing is, BigBox works perfectly without issue.
  13. Hi all I've been having this issue for quite some time now where Launchbox opens, then instantly crashes. I can run Bigbox without issue whatsoever. The crash only happens when using the Launchbox desktop app. I am running Windows 10 an don version 10.14 of Launchbox. Somehow the app has managed to update itself as this has been happening to me for several months now since about 3 versions ago. The last time I posted about this issue I found a temporary fix of deleting the settings file but this fix did not last long. I also had a few weeks where I could run Launchbox by first running Bigbox, exiting to desktop version then Launchbox would load and work fine. However none of the little workarounds are working for me anymore. Here is the log of my latest attempt to open Launchbox.
