  1. Before you ever attempt to import something into Launchbox it is usually best to set the emulator up first and test the games there first, as well as your controls. This way it helps eliminate Launchbox being the issue and it is easier to identify it being a rom issue. Which version of Mame do you plan on sticking with?
  2. You may be able to script an Auto Hot Key to do this. I am not versed in AHK so could not assist. I would suggest posting in the AHK thread and see if someone can chime in. We have a couple users that are pretty experienced.
  3. For controllers there is no option in Launchbox to bind to a single button. You can with a keyboard key. This is likely due to the fact a controller is limited in buttons and it could conflict with controls in game.

    Add one of the AHK scripts below to the "Running Auto Hot Key" tab in your Project64 emulator setup in Launchbox. This one is pretty standard and used most often. ; This section closes Project64 when pressing Escape $Esc:: { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} } This second version is a safer way to close an emulator. The first version force closes. It is best for emulators that have to close properly to ensure save states get saved. $Esc::WinClose, ahk_exe Project64.exe

    Which specific emulator. There are more than one that emulate N64.
  6. You just need to uncheck the box in the Arcade (Category) listing. Then all playlists will show up as a subcategory of Arcade. So you will have 3 tiers. Arcade (Category) > Arcade (Platform) > then all your playlists. By keeping both checked, you can see in my image when I edited my Castlevania playlist, it puts it both under the Arcade (Category) and under the Arcade (Platform)
  7. Yeah, sucks about the drive failing. But happy to see you got it sorted.

    Does it run outside of Launchbox? If it does it could be the Startup screen causing issues, try turning it off for that game. Right click and edit the game in Launchbox. Go to the Startup tab and click override and uncheck Enable Startups.
  9. Yes, using 0.2a but I just tested with 0.1.1a and no issues. There is a slight delay with a black screen before closing, but it closes from both full screen and windowed.
  10. I would share pics like @JoeViking245 has so maybe we can spot something in the set-up.
  11. It works perfectly on my end for fullscreen or windowed Super Model 3 emulator. No hit or miss. What controller are you using? Could customize an AHK to work, what are the button #’s you are using for “hold” and “close”? Here is how I have it set both my controller automation and the AHK in the emulator. Settings in the emulator itself are basic settings.
  12. That "Close the active window" setting is what will close the emulator. When you are playing a game that is the "active window". So in the controller automation you want to bind a button to the "Hold This Button" then bind a button to the "Close the active window". In my image I have to hold button 7 first then press button 8 and Model3 emulator will shutdown.
  13. Since you have that script in the settings just make sure you set you controller automation in Launchbox and exiting will work with the controller.
  14. @7ank0v1c I was able to test PAL Crash and no issues on one machine, but did get stuttering on another. Only difference I noticed was the one with issues for some reason the overclock setting was on x2. Changed it to x1 like the other one and no issues. So maybe check that setting.
  15. Sorry I did not. Work grabbed me last minute to fly to fix a problem at one of our vendors. I will be home late tonight and can test. Any game in particular?
  16. I asked on the stream and basically it can do this using a plugin like other themes have used. His latest update the the theme builder you can now directly add user created plugins to the theme while working in the editor.
  17. LOL. Depending on your ISP it might take longer to download a new full Mame romset than it would to set up a newer version of Mame with updated roms.
  18. Same ones I am using. I have not played a game on ePSXe in a while. So I will test to see if I experience the same.
  19. What video plugin are you using?
  20. But which version were you originally using? Make sure in the folder where your Mame.exe is you see the Mame.ini file. If not look in the ini folder for it and try copying it and pasting into the main folder where the exe is. I can replicate this exact error if the ini file is in the sub folder called ini. This is with MAmeUI and Arcade64. command line Mame not an issue as it stores the ini once generated in the main folder. The pic below is just now from removing that ini from the main folder.
  21. Are you using MameUI orArcade64 by any chance? Also what version # is your Mame? I have seen that error with older versions of those two emulators.
  22. Small community and we really only have a few regulars who have coding knowledge and theme building knowledge. So it may be slow to get solid answers. A good spot to post and read is this thread.
  23. Glad you are sorted. Keep in mind the new Startup and Pause screen options can be adjusted per emulator and per game which is useful for things like Windows game. Take a look at the options in Startup and Pause settings as you may need to adjust them per emulator/game to get them to work properly. Or you may need to turn it off if it just will not work.
  24. That error is beyond my expertise. I will tag @Jason Carr
  25. How many games do this? I have a bunch of gog and windows games imported by .lnk and work fine. What are some games your are experiencing this with?
