  1. Double check in BigBox mapping option that you have your exit combo set for the option listed as "Close Active Window"
  2. This is interesting. My 3 cabinets work regardless of marquee screen position. Good to know this worked for @Benjc. Another option to try when troubleshooting anyone with a similar issue.
  3. I did not think it would, but at least we confirmed. Yeah, it looks like BB is not even seeing the screen is there as usually the marquee would be black if nothing was showing an cover that lovely color you used. What model is that marquee screen?
  4. @Benjc can you try this xaml. Just place it in the CoinOps themes \Views folder and see if anything shows up. This is just edited to work with cut screen that some users had the marquee image showing cut off. Can you share a pic of what your screens look like when in a BigBox theme before testing this xaml? GameMarqueeView.xaml
  5. LB actually does not need a marquee view xaml. All themes that may not have the PlatformMarqueeView.xaml or GameMarqueeView.xaml present in the views should still show marquees due to how BigBox is coded. So you have the same marquee screen type as the OP and it is the same resolution? If you remove those xaml files the marquee does not show for you?
  6. Can you try setting the marquee to a 720 resolution @ 60Hz and see if any change? @C-Beats I doubt he is using a custom marquee view unless he created one. there are not any theme's posted that have custom marquee xaml's.
  7. Probably Emumovies. I do not see it in the media from the LaunchBox Game DB.
  8. Since we seem to have not properly comprehended my request to let it rest and I have been respectful I think enough is enough. Time to lock thread. @KoritsuKyu Glad it is a viable option for you for now. Any issues related to this topic that might come up please start a new thread.
  9. I think we have started down that slippery slope. So let's just squash any more posts not related to the actual question the OP had. All that is going to keep happening is more back and forth. So let's move on. @KoritsuKyu If the option I mentioned works for you and you are sorted then glad you have what you need. If not, start a new thread and we can go from there
  10. @Pixel As mentioned in my prior post anything more is not helpful and will be deleted. So I deleted your last post. Please let it be in this thread and I request again you make a separate thread. I am being as respectful as I can.
  11. I recommend if you want to continue with your specific request open a new thread and start there. Any more on the subject in this thread is not helpful and will be deleted. Not trying to discount your specific need. It would just be better served in its own thread getting feedback there instead of derailing this one.
  12. I have used these cut monitors on numerous builds and currently have them in 2 cabinets now. I have not seen where primary is listed as 2 and marquee as 1. They have all been 1 as primary. Only time I had an issue was when DPI scaling was different for each monitor. The marquee was not showing up on one of those builds. I would also double check the Hz on the marquee. Some times the monitors I would get are set to 55Hz and would not show the marquee.
  13. Here is a thread that might be helpful. It does not look like it is a perfect option. However, maybe it can get you going in the right direction.
  14. For your specific use I can completely understand this would not be the best way to handle your needs. However, it is a user friendly solution in many use cases and might be for the original poster. I know for my use it is as I am not the kind of person who has thousands of additional apps. Only those necessary to allow me to enjoy my games. So while I do hope some day our devs can put something more suitable in place for how you use LB/BB and I can see how a different option would be very helpful for how you manage your set-up. I would hope you can see it is not helpful to come to this p
  15. If they are all in pdf format you can add them as additional apps. These will even show up in the Pause Menu of the LB Pause Themes.
  16. There was nothing sneaky about it. It was a release to fix a Windows Defender issue users were experiencing.
  17. If you import a full mame set into platform "Arcade" and then manually change some games to be in a different platform. The next time you try to import a full mame rom set into LB as "Arcade" LB will import them all into "Arcade" and you would have to manually change the game you did before. LB will only import files into the platform you tell it to.
  18. Any videos you want to use when BigBox first start up go in \Launchbox\Videos\Startup folder. They can be any name and you can have multiple videos. BigBox which choose one at random when it first open.
  19. If you left the box checked for "Rough Matching...." then yes it will take a while. That option compares each downloaded image to all others to ensure it does not download duplicate images.
  20. I think the below piece of the original post from @faeran Should not be overlooked by all of us. Yes, the prior poll from 2019 had very specific types of items users got to vote on. With the LB team growing this poll is a great chance for the team to see which way to better take development. So, yeah it may not be a poll for "Hey do you want this feature or that feature, but one to get a better feel for where to put an emphasis on development. To me that is a lot of user input. Getting to let a developer know which way you want them to lean.
  21. In LB go to >Tools >Options and in the Game Details section make sure you have Video checked. This will allow you to see videos in the right side game details pane in LB.
  22. Forum is perfect for troubleshooting, general questions, and yes even asking about features. However, to make best use of getting a feature noticed and allowing us to better track feature requests and how many users want it BitBucket is the best avenue which is why that is linked when you click on Feature Request. So I always recommend make a feature request then come to the forum and post about it and post a link to the ticket to hepl drive users to it and to vote. Bitbucket allows us to see votes and sort/search easier. The forum, not so useful for this. Thanks for the positive feedb
  23. Could have been a bug in the prior version. I know in the latest release they fixed something that was giving users some video type playback issues so it maybe fixed what you were seeing before. I am sure it would be possible with an update to BigBox. It would likely need a feature request. I see you asked about it on the poll thread. Thank you by the way for realizing you posted something off topic in that thread. Not that it is a big issue but we are trying to keep the thread clean so the devs can clearly see poll specific questions. Hopefully, Jason responds there and give you a bet
  24. BigBox does not have a way to prioritize like this. It only has an option to prioritize video playback as a whole. So it cannot prioritize how it plays back a game video on a platform level and then prioritize how it plays back game videos when in the game level. In either way it adheres to how you set your video prioritization in the LB >Tools >Options >Video Priorities setting.
  25. Those items did not actually make the cut. Only the top 20 from the 2019 poll did. There were a couple under the top 20 that did get added only because it was an easy implementation with other upgrades.
