  1. Filter in LB? What specifically are you looking to do? LB does not care about the CHD, only Mame does. LB just tells mame the name of the rom file to launch. Most of the games in Mame require the zipped rom to launch the game and the CHD supports it. There are a few exceptions that are CHD only games like Golden Tee Fore 2005 and 2006.
  2. http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/lista_mame.php Under the ""Additional Filters" option click it and select "Use CHD". Should give you a list of CHD required games. You will see a Color coded dot in each game as well to see which work and do not. In the "Emulation" spot you can change that to show only working games.
  3. The "combine roms with matching titles..." option is only for combining roms you are importing at the same time. It does not look at a rom you are importing and attempt to combine it with one you have already imported.
  4. The import of the roms alone should not take long. You can import the roms first and get that out of the way and then go back and import media. I think the last full rom import I did (game only, no media) took only a few minutes. The media part is what will take the bulk of the time. That would depend on how many different media types per game you are wanting to download. To reduce time I would recommend unchecking the option for "Remove roughly matched duplicate items". That option compares each image downloaded so it increase download times since it does it on every single image.
  5. There is a thread mentioning this ma be caused by the "Remove Rough Matches..." option in the download media wizard. The other post Jason mentions he is not sure why the error would occur but asked the OP to test by unchecking that option when in the Media Download screens and see if the error returns. The OP never responded. Can you test this and report back.
  6. Highlight the games missing clear logos in LB then go to >Tools >Download Media and Metadata. You can check the option for clear logos there or download any other media you need. You can also download images manually from other sites, directly from our forum, or make you own and manually store them in that image folder. LB will recognize a file named after the game (as it appears in LB) or the rom file. The appended -01 is used if you want more than one image. Just continue to add -02, -03, and so on the the image file name.
  7. Yeah this is one thing I have asked Jason if we can get. An image priorities for marquee since its current state defaults to box-front priorities. Wen creating marquee views you have to trick BB. Maybe you can help nudge that with him....??
  8. Not sure how you downloaded your roms, but if you get your Naomi roms from the full Mame romset you will not be missing any files. We typically recommend this route over downloading individual roms from random sites to prevent this type of issue. That rom in the latest mame sets has the file you are missing.
  9. All custom themes you have tried to just specific ones? What theme are you seeing the issue with?

    There are some Pause themes that offer a way to show controller mapping images. There might be a Startup one also. Do not remember. I use both a startup and pause version as sometimes the startup does not stay long enough and users forget what button was what.

    Startup themes can only be altered by editing the code in the theme's xml file. Exactly like if you wanted to alter how a BigBox theme actually looked. There are not actual settings in the LB or BB UI you can select to alter.
  12. Definitely a nice addition. Gives me some creative ideas on how to modify the LBTheme I am using. Hope you do not mind a recommendation for this theme. Possibly wrap the RetroAcheivements in a ScrollViewer to allow for scrolling the achievements separately from the metadata. The metadata can still keep its own scrolling.

    If you are talking about incorrect data in our GamesDB just create a profile on the GameDB website and you can submit change requests there.
  14. If that’s your assessment fair enough, but I will mention the dev team is only 2 people. So it is not a big team developing and testing. They can only do so much testing which is why betas are helpful. It gives the devs real world use feedback. So to call releases lazy under values the effort 2 devs put into their time. Plus many users simply use betas to get the latest features without providing any real feedback.
  15. What version are you on? Showing fine on several builds I have going.
  16. Try reverting to the stable version and test. If it works in the stable reload the beta and confirm it does not work again.
  17. You do not need the xaml name. Just enter it as I quoted. You import the game's xml file. The command line will handle linking TP to the xaml to launch. This should help.
  18. To add any arcade system you want you are not stuck with what is in the pre-populated drop down list. Just type in any name you want. The list is just to get people started. It is not, and for that matter, was never meant to be all inclusive. They are no longer separated as a decision was made a long while back to put all arcade boards under "Arcade" platform. I have all these arcade boards as unique platforms so it is easy to do. The text method is dated and really not needed. I just tested that method and it does work. When you add TP as an emulator be sure in the "Default command line parameters" to add "--profile=%romfile%.xml" . You might also need to check the boxes for "Don't Use Quotes..." and "Use File Name Only..." Then just import each games .xml file located in the "Game Profile" folder of Teknoparrot. Some did a write up a short while ago about doing TP games without using the text. I will see if I can find it.

    It has not as it was never really put through the proper feature request option so it never gained attention of users and the devs. Best thing for anyone to do when looking to request a feature is use the link located under the Help & Support section at the top of the forum. Its helps us track them better and the more users vote for it the better chance it gets looked into. Once a ticket is made I always recommend posting about it on the forum so others are aware of it.
  20. What method are you using to import? Pics or even a video of you doing an inport might help understand what’s happening.
  21. All emulators, some emulators? Does it do this in LB, BB, or both? Can you provide some more details? Also what version LB/BB are you on?
  22. Please do not start new threads for the same issue. I also recommend a little patience our forum is small and we do not have as many users posting help responses as larger communities would have. I have merged your threads. I am not sure why the audio would work and not the video. Inside the BigBox video settings can you change between either VLC or Windows Media and see if that changes anything. What is your video's file type?
