  1. Your List of Small Things

    It would be nice if I could make the background image according to the category instead of only one default background for all categories.
  2. Advice

    Does anyone have any advice on setting up a NAS setup? I am looking to store all of my media on a network that can be accessed by 5 pc's plus wireless devicess. I also want raid configurable options for Mirroring and multi-striping. Finally I would like the possibility to add additional storage. Currently I gave about 12tb of media, but I expect this will grow quickly once I have more space available. Any suggestions?
  3. Completing Meta Data

    So now that I figured out how the database works, are we including hacks and home brews or are these still out of scope for the database?
  4. BigBox Performance and How to Make it Better

    |Yeah - same issue here. I have not added systems/games in several months since I know this will just make it worse. Really I don't even mess with BigBox anymore since it's almost unusable. I've decided to instead focus my OCD on gething the systems I do have loaded setup with 100% playability and metadata. Maybe someday... As I thinkle about this, maybe it makes sense to add a function that is a toggle switch for weather or not to load a game into BigBox this may make it somewhat more manageable as Jason continues to work on "various performance enhancements". This would allow me to "collect" from a completion stand point, but also allow me to have an eye candy setup that is functioning.

  6. Subcategories

    Yeah, that's kinda what I figured... Too bad there is no way to influence Jason more - maybe we should suggest influence currency be earned by user's who work on the Games DB or something...
  7. Subcategories

    Is it possible to accelerate this request based on number of users asking? Do we sign a petition or some such? Been a while since a survey was put out...
  8. Subcategories

    Hello, I am looking for a way to create groups within groups of a category. For example - I have a category called "Consoles" Within the category "Consoles", I have a setup for "Sega Genesis". This setup includes "everything i have for Sega Genesis, but I would like to make "Sega Genesis a sub category to create multiple Sega Genesis setups... i.e.: Consoles Sega Genesis Sega Genesis Released Sega Genesis Prototypes Sega Genesis Home Brew Sega Genesis Translations Sega Genesis Hacks Super Nintendo Super Nintendo Released Super Nintendo Prototypes Super Nintendo Home Brew Super Nintendo Translations Super Nintendo Hacks Etc... I cant seem to find a way to do this using the current LaunchBox tools Am i overthinking this? Is there an easier way to accomplish what i am after here? I mostly use LaunchBox because my setup is almost unusable with BigBox due to loading times, so maybe what i am after is more easily accomplished in BigBox, and i am just not aware of it...

  10. Completing Meta Data

    So I have been out of the loop in terms of current updates, 3rd party plugins and forum chatter. I am cleaning up the metadata on my SNES system and I am finding that a lot of the games I have in Launchbox have some metadata that was downloaded from the LB database, but when i try to search for updates i get a message that the game could not be found in the database... not sure whats going on here. So i was going to start populating the immages manually from the interwebs, but i am sure that me putting files in my own folders is not the most efficient way to improve the situation. Is there a recommended method for how i should go about finding metadata and uploading it to the data base so that everyone's games can be updated, and the auto-update functions will work better for my collection

  12. BigBox Performance and How to Make it Better

    Is thathe raw clock speed or does a multi core system offer advantages? Does BigBox take advantage of multi threading?
  13. BigBox Performance and How to Make it Better

    Is BigBox more ram intense or is the clock speed also critical? I can ado plenty of ram, but I don't think I can upgrade the processor unless I want to build a new pc. I'm running a 2.6ghz processor, but I only have 6gb ram. I have 3 open slots and could easily add another 48 gb of ram if it would help?
  14. Win 3x0

    Is it possible that someone can walk me through launching Heroes of Might and Magic, Advanced Civ, and Sword of Aragon in Launchbox. Most of the other games I am able to fix on my own when needed, but these 3 have given me a significant amount of trouble. Thanks And I definitely agree - TYVM for all the effort that went in to creating these sets! I can not even imagine...
  15. Win 3x0

    Is it of use to document my reults here or is this a waste of effort? I would assume most of the issues will fall into a few categories of how to adjust to make it work. It might also be helpful for Jason to identify opportunities for improving? If it's not of value though I don't want to waste everyone's time? -Coleman
