    If you are adding games to LaunchBox all games must be added to a platform. Platforms can then be sorted by Platform Category. You can create any type of Platform Category you want, but games only get imported into actual Platforms.
  2. What do you have your scrape as field set to for your SNK Neo Geo MVS platform?
  3. It is a new feature that was added a couple version ago. I believe 10.11 is when the dynamic duo added custom image types for Wheel and Cover Flow. The xaml thread is more suited also as that is where most of our coders help each other out and looking at that thread it looks like you already got a faster response.
  4. Cool. Look forward to the new media. It has been a big help as I add more game ran through TeknoParrot.
  5. Whatever view you are using in BigBox for the theme you will have to edit the xaml for it. In BigBox options if you go to View it will show which view for Platforms and Games you are using. You will need to edit those specific xamls. Or edit them all in case you want to change views. Use something like Notepad++. Right click and edit Search the code for the section of code starting with <!-- FADING WHEEL --> and delete everything in that line. You also want to do the same for the section with <!-- POINTER --> and delete only the lines of code for the Opactiy (the ones highlighted in the pic). You will need to do this for your platform view and you game view.
  6. If you are using RocketLauncher and using the Launchbox/BigBox startup themes this will likely cause this issue.
  7. That is best posted in the custom xaml thread. It is not beta testing related.
  8. Because that option is theme driven. If you use the Old Default theme you will notice the game text is under the box and there is not option to hide it by the text button. Same with some of the other user created LaunchBox theme's. Some coders added that "Text" option in there, some have not.
  9. In your \Launchbox\Data folder just delete the BigBoxSetting.xaml. Upon relaunch BigBox will generate it again. You will have to redo your setting for BigBox, but you will be back up an running.
  10. Did you ever get a Rambo theme completed? Just got added a bunch of TeknoParrot run games and it was nice to have the media you made. Thanks for sharing!
  11. Well, you definitely do not want to store an emulator in a plugins folder. If you want to keep it neat and tidy then emulators should go in the folder called "emulators". I would caution putting files in random folders. Are you looking to purchase something that has everything installed/prebuilt for you or just the arcade cabinet and you set everything up?
  12. Well the error is telling you the issue is the dll for the plugin you are using. Those Fusion 360 files are not something that is part of the LaunchBox download. So for what ever reason you are using Fusion364 you may need to download those files again.
  13. If you do not get an answer to a post just add a new comment to it. Don't open another thread. Post a couple pics of your Retroarch set-up. In manage emulators edit Retroarch and post a pic of: 1: The details tab 2: The associated emulators tab. Then choose one platform you are having issues with and select one game from it that does not run. Right click and edit that game. Share a pic of that edit screen. 1: Image showing that full screen with the Launcher tab visible 2: That same screen with the Emulation tab showing. Also for this platform tell me what core in Retroarch you used to run the game.
  14. You set the core right in the associated platforms tab in the cell labeled "core".
  15. Please do not start new threads for the same issue. I have merged these two threads.
  16. If when you import your roms and tell the import wizard to copy to the roms to theLaunchbox folder is that the folder MameUI has the rom path set for? I would recommend for Mame not moving the roms. Use the option to leave the roms where they are. What is the rom path you set in MameUI for your roms? For one of the games that do not work can your right click the game and share an image of the screen showing the rom folder path?
  17. No it is not a duplicate. It is a unique file. Look in your ini folder. It is likely there as that is where MameUI likes to put it. Well if you right click a game and the rom path is not the same as where you told MameUI the rom path is, then that is also another part of your issue. You need to make sure your games in LB are in the same path you told MameUI the roms are. You do not need to get new roms. If they work and you can fix the disconnect in LB then you are good. But if you use the full mame set import just know it is listing games in LB based off the latest mame.xml file of good running mame roms. So from .176 to now there may be some minor rom differences.
  18. No, that is the MameUI.ini. I said the Mame.ini. It is a completely different file. You need to have the Mame.ini in this folder. I see a game image for Hyper Street Fighter II Anniversary Edition right in your image. First image under the Street Fighter Series label. Did you have LB combine same game names into one rom? If you did right click the game and you should see the other version of each game. Also please keep in mind you are using old roms with the LB Mame Full Set importer which imports games based on the most current Mame rom set. It will work to some extent, but some games have changed over the years and your set is easily 4 years old. So it may miss some game and may also show games you actually do not have. Not a lot, but know it does happen when using such old sets.
  19. Hmmm. I will have to double check when I get to the house. There are a few TTX games I actually run in LB directly by the game.exe and do not even use TeknoParrot. I think Wacky Races may have been one I had issues with and tracked down a version that uses just the game.exe.
  20. If you are using Mame UI with Launchbox make sure your Mame.ini files is located in the root folder where the mame exe file is. So if you have it located in the ini folder like MameUI likes to put it you need to have it in the same folder as the main mame exe file.
  21. Not sure if this is the issue but my settings are pointing to a blank text document called WackyRaces.txt instead of pointing to the xml. So my game rom path is something like \Roms\TeknoParrot\WackyRaces.txt Also since you have the default command lines listed on the Associated Platforms tab you do not need it on the main details tab as well. Other than that your other settings look good.
  22. Is it possible this is just a continuation of your issue from this thread? Now that you changed game to use Retroarch did you select all the games in each platform and bulk edit them to now use Retroarch? Did you also select the correct cores for each platform and ensure that the platform names are showing in the Associated Platforms tab for Retroarch?
  23. Not sure why it will not work. That is similar to what I use (D4 and D2 "P2 Start" button). Have been using that combo for about 3 years now with BigBox.
