  1. Funny, i found 11.3 a disaster. bigbox would crash on exit on most vertical games - All Cave / Donkey kong etc. Would crash right out to desktop, no error, nothing. Thank god 11.4 fixed it
  2. Fallen to page 2 - has anyone taken a look and can offer some advice on this please, thanks (Paid bigbox user)
  3. guys do the actions and fixes in this thread only apply to Launch box? What about when in bigbox mode?

    nice one, youre a good lad Neil cheers
  5. I had the every so often error of my files have been corrupt please use an old Zip from the Backup folder. Unpacked the last one into the Data folder which usually works. Now i get this message attached. This Temp folder that it refers too wont even allow me to access, OR delete it even after a reboot. Cheers

    Steam in Bigbox

    ok Neil thanks - And theres no way around that? - Even if i moved the whole game to another location? Anything bought on Steam always needs steam open in the background to play? I assume for DRM

    Steam in Bigbox

    hi guys - Just imported my steam library inot Launchbox. Is it possible to not need to be connected to the net when wanting to play steam games from bigbox mode (my arcade is off grid). And secondly, i realise the games are purchased and distributed via steam, but once downloaded is there a way to play them without having to load up steam or have it running in the back ground? Cheers
  9. Hi GUys - having a problem configuring jconfig to accept button presses on my arcade panel (that is connected via ipac). The only way is to select the "getasynckeystate" option, but this has a predefined keyboard set of inputs - for instance WASD for up down left right, where as my ipac is the directional arrows. i was thinking of writing an AHK script changing say W to UP, can i load in Launch box and it adds this script for this game ONLY?.... So i want launch box to start the SFV application, but also start JCONFIG, and ALSO start the AHK script too? is all this possible?.. Have i even mad
  10. hi HeadRush - So i i have demulshooter working, and ALMOST have Virtua Cop perfect. it is reading my Xbox pads, has cursors on screen all works well.. Apart from one thing... Even after calibrating the "guns" in Virtua Cops test menu it seems as though there is an elastic band attached to the bottom right of the screen. you can move the cross hair around fine with the analogue stick of the xbox pad however when you let go it flies back to the bottom right and doesnt stay naturally where it was. Its SO close but this makes it a deal breaker. Im sure it looks like its a gun calibration iss
  11. thanks headrush!! Crikey never head of Demulshooter before!! perfect will check it out, thanks very much
  12. Update: Just need assistance on virtua cop and HOTD with xbox pad please. Fixed the other odd issue. For those that dont know, you need to untick Analogue Brake and Accelerate, leave Analogue Axis-X for steering.. However change "UP" to be your accelerate button, and "Down" to be brake.. All works fine then. thanks
  13. Hi guys - I am trying to set up Sega Model 2 for my cab. Some games which dont require analogue im using my control panel (Dead or alive etc) - but for the majority like Daytona etc i want to use my Xbox pad. When starting the game, configuring controls it actually seems insane and does nothing like it should. I tick analogue X and Y axis.. Even though i would like Triggers for acc and brake but thats another matter. When i seem to have things set up i go into the game and it just wont accelerate, or just violently brake.. Its nuts.. If anyone can offer some advice that would be great.. T
  14. Thanks Retro, i thought the same. All i did was add the playlists that were found within say the "Arcade" category, seems to do most i could
  15. Hi. My bigbox starts in unified and has arcade, and all 40 odd platforms listed in the wheel. However. I switched to "platform categories" and i like the "consoles" wheel.and its associated video. Is it possible to plop this "consoles" into my main "platform" wheel? Tried messing around in launchbox and cant see how
  16. hi guys - probably a simple one here, since adding a 3+4 player wheel every time i start bigbox it starts with that wheel. I want it back the way it was on "Arcade classics" and the nice music that plays along with that wheel. Probably a tick box somewhere ive unticked thanks
  17. Hi guys So goldeneye,when i try multiplayer on 2players (not tried 4) player 1 is perfect however player 2 doesnt seem to render. Seems like you are floating in the sky. No world or anything. Any ideas!?
  18. Oooh get out of town Charco!... That "4 player" one is spot on. Probably the best im going to get eh, wish it said 3 and 4 player. But i dont think im going to get it am i. Awesome thanks
  19. Hi thanks Robin. Really appreciate your reply, however the 4p video seemed to only be consoles, perhaps it looked like.n64. Im after arcade only really. Cherry on top would also be 3 AND 4 player.
  20. Does a playlist video for "3+4 player" exist guys?
  21. dont spose anyone has any videos they can recommend as my "multiplayer" / "3-4 player" wheel thing? Would be much appreciated!
  22. hi Kinky, well, crikey that has to be one of the most wonderful and thought out tips ive had. Alot of time has gone into that and i massively appreciate it, thank you. I will give this a go to see how it pans out, great stuff!
  23. Funny i did think about doing that if the problem was worse. however its only Battletoads, great game but everything else is spot on pretty much
  24. Just for your own notes... This worked QUITE well... only multiplayer game i had an issue with was Battle toads - there doesnt seem to be ANY other Mame roms apart from btoads.zip available, so, sod it.. All the rest work great
  25. hi all - i have made a playlist for all 3 and 4 player games on my machine. however when going into bigbox, unified, it looks rubbish so i need to freshen it up a little. Can anyone recommend me a nice "Multiplayer" type back ground video i can use when highlighting it on my systems wheel?. Also, any good clear logos for this wheel title etc would be greatly appreciated thanks a million
