  1. Hi Frag - Hmm ok. I was even wondering if there was a way, when i get these XML corrupted errors due to power loss and the machine is left with the error in the middle to perhaps have some fancy script run using a clever set of control panel commands that Copies the contents of a Backup to the data folder without having to get keyboard and mouse out everytime.. Dont know if that makes sense Its frustrating that Launchbox/bigbox does its saving on shut down. Couldnt it do any changes on the fly thus massively narrowing the chances of corrupted files on sudden loss
  2. Hi. What would be the repurcussions of doing this?..... The system will not change settings wise so would this cause a problem?..my reason for doing this is in a hope to prevent the corrupting of the xml's when the power suddenly drops. I realise the simple answer is to not suddenly drop the power however lets assume for a sec that it will and does happen every so often to me. Much appreciated
  3. Hi Neil - back to you with how things went, and wondering if you can help. So, we did what you said, safe mode > removed everything using DDU.. rebooted..... installed the uptodate GPU drivers... All seemed fine for an hour, would play etc... Then all of a sudden, screen went black > no signal on monitor... When trying to reboot we see the Gigabyte splash screen then after this is stays dead, the exact same problem as we thought we had just fixed. It seems something has corrupted the graphics driver AGAIN?... Any ideas?.. thanks very much
  4. Hi Retro give me a bit, a little swamped at the mo - will be back to you soon
  5. hi Retro - thanks - before i do i want to be sure i am amending the right XAML file as there are loads. Within big box, options, views it shows this : Platform list view: Platform wheel 1 Games list view : Vertical wheel 3 So the XAML file that i am amending is called PlatformWheel1FiltersView.XAML - its the only one that seems to correlate to "Platforms wheel 1". Furthermore, when i copy your red text (exactly) carefully keeping the </Grid> in there at the end i get a huge error appear. If you can see any cracks in what i have just said then brilliant please le
  6. Unified Redux - and TextGamesView.xaml Almost all of the XAML files have that part within them when i search for date/Time etc
  7. hi retro - So it assume it is this section in the XAML file : <!-- DATE, TIME AND WEATHER --> <Viewbox x:Name="DateTimeWeather" Grid.Row="0" Grid.Column="1" > <DockPanel Height="45" Width="349" HorizontalAlignment="Stretch" VerticalAlignment="Stretch" > <TextBlock Text="{Binding CurrentTime}" FontFamily="{StaticResource FontBebasNeue}" FontWeight="Bold" VerticalAlignment="Center" DockPanel.Dock="Right" FontSize="35" Foreground="Crimson" /> <TextBlock Text=" " FontFamily=
  8. Thanks mate will have a look
  9. hi Retro - so i have had a chance to take a look at your advice and a little stumped. I have been into Launchbox > themes > Unified and the only file that seems relevant in there is Themesettings.XML - i have been into that had a scan through and cannot see (or CTRL+F) anything related to Clock, Time, or Date. Have looked at other possible places too and cannot see any XML which contains them either. Any idea where else i could look? thanks
  10. Hi Retro thank you for this - I will take a look. I assume the Theme XLM files are found in a THeme folder of somekind? ill take a look thanks
  11. hi Guys - probably a simply one, but using unified in bigbox, is there a way to remove the clock? thanks
  12. Thanks Neil. It is a nice IPS monitor, and the audio comes straight out of the motherboard to the amp which drives the sub and 2 sony's. Ah so typical windows and a corrupted driver. It is an APU - a Ryzen 2400G, when teamed with Fast ram it is perfect for everything up to ps2 (if you dont want the uber flashy resolutions). I will try to DDU and then reinstall the APU graphics driver see how it goes. Thanks alot mate
  13. yes i did think this - However it also looks like the power to the monitor drops as you get an "off" black screen (you can tell when a monitor is still on yet its black if you know what i mean). I will try safe mode tomorrow when i next get to the machine... Couple of questions : lets say it goes into Safe mode fine. What then?... Also, why would it suddenly do this after 4 months of being fine every day? thanks Neil
  14. Off the back of my messagethe other day, can anyone give any ideas off the back of this video. It shows the gigabyte logo, then seems like the screen drops but all stays working in the back ground fine as you can hear bigbox intro vid and the main wheels load up and control it fine... Faulty monitor???. If faulty why does it always show the boot up fine yet drop when it seems windows loads.... heelppp.. thank you VID-20210321-WA0014.mp4
  15. Guys not sure if this is the right section but would like anyones thoughts on this please. Does anyone have any idea why a machine in the middle of a game would go to a totally blank screen (perhaps monitor power dropped), sound off, however Marquee and coin button lights (that are powered from USB on the motherboard) are still on. Also, when tapping or holding down the power button (that is wired the power switch on the mobo) does nothing either. Even the hard reset long hold. The only way to turn it off is at the wall - Wait 10 seconds - switch back on and push the power butt
