  1. Why Launchbox/BB vs HS/other frontends?

    My reasons are: 1 - Launchbox is the only frontend AFAIK that has a desktop mode (launchbox) AND a couch mode (Bigbox). Other frontends have 1 or the other but not both. 2 - mgalaxy is too simple and not very customizable for my taste. I do love how a female voice says "launching game" when you select a game though. X-D 3 - EmulationStation, Ice and Hyperspin require editing of text files to setup which is a pain in the ass for me, even with documentation. Yes hyperspin does have GUI programs to help make setup easier but still not as easy as launchbox. 4 - Couldn't get rocketlauncher and retrofe working. Maybe I was doing something wrong, IDK. 5 - GameEX crashes on some settings and takes forever to load different themes. 6 - Thanks to Bigbox custom themes, I can download and use themes to make bigbox look like emulationstation, recalbox and even hyperspin. and many more...
  2. What controller are you all using for your MAME?

    Either get genuine Xbox One Controller For Windows or genuine DualShock 4 Controller and install DS4Windows to use dualshock 4 on windows.
  3. What controller are you all using for your MAME?

    I never use wireless. Last thing I need is to run out of battery power while fighting a boss or in a competitive match and batteries aren't cheap these days either. I use the PDP Xbox One wired controller on Windows 10. Problem with this controller though is that it's very difficult, if not impossible, to get it to run on windows 7. This controller forced me to upgrade to windows 10 in order to use it but windows 10 isn't so bad once you get used to it.

    @CriticalCid Thanks for such an awesome update. Just out of curiosity, would you be able to add phillips videopac+ in a future update?
  5. Im having some problems...

    Try reinstalling 8.2, if problem persists, try reinstalling 8.1 and see if that still works.
  6. GOG games

    You either have to import them manually by clicking on the "Add" button at the bottom right corner of launchbox if you have installed them but they are not in the registry or install them like normal and then click tools - import - windows games.
  7. Whole load of gamesdbase errors

    i'm having same problem but im now trying out emumovies sync and its downloading fine.
  8. 50$ for what exactly?

    DancinShade I highly recommend you get the yearly license just to give bigbox a test drive and decide for yourself if you love it enough to upgrade to lifetime license or hate it enough to use something else. I've tried most of the frontends available and for me personally, LB/BB is the best and easiest I've used. I 1st bought the yearly license to test it out and after a month I was hooked and decided to upgrade to lifetime license and never looked back nor regretted it since. Also if you decide to purchase an emumovies license, you only need the monthly license ($20 for 1st month, $5 per month thereafter) to download whatever videos you need/want. One of the many awesome things about BB is the custom themes where if you like the looks of the emulationstation or hyperspin frontends but don't like how complicated and/or time consuming they are to setup, there's BB custom themes that you can download that make BB look exactly (or VERY similar) like them so you get best of both worlds.

    The background artwork in games view or platform view?
  10. Unified

    Blackscreen in platform view? If so, its because you need to put platform videos in your videos folder. Easiest way is to download platform videos from emumovies from within Launchbox. In Launchbox click tools, download platform/playlist theme videos and at the bottom where it says "select to prioritize" select "Emumovies Unified (16x9) (HD)" and click ok. It'll download all Unified videos from emumovies and they should play in platform view now. I also got confused on this one.
  11. Anyways...I just downloaded 2Xtreme and extracted and tested and its working fine. The 1st pic is what all your files should be named as and the second pic is what the cue file should say inside it. You can copy and paste this into the cue file to make things quicker: FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 1).bin" BINARY TRACK 01 MODE2/2352 INDEX 01 00:00:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 2).bin" BINARY TRACK 02 AUDIO INDEX 00 00:00:00 INDEX 01 00:02:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 3).bin" BINARY TRACK 03 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 4).bin" BINARY TRACK 04 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 5).bin" BINARY TRACK 05 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 6).bin" BINARY TRACK 06 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 7).bin" BINARY TRACK 07 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 FILE "2Xtreme (USA) (Track 8).bin" BINARY TRACK 08 AUDIO INDEX 01 00:00:00 When you import the cue file into LB it SHOULD run perfectly now.
  12. I did mention it earlier in the thread but I guess I got a nasty habit of not wording myself properly. My bad.
  13. Rename the last file to 2Xtreme (USA) (Track 1).bin and open the cue file with wordpad and check to see if all the bin file names are correct in the cue file.
