  1. Hello knowledgeable peoples. I've been doing alot of admin today sorting games into playlists manually (via rightclick context menu) and I'm getting "your system is running out of memory (ram) and Launchbox cannot continue" After control clicking a handful of games Approx 100 games in a list of 533, task manager is showing ram usage of OVER 10GBs. presumably something to do with art cache? Is this normal? System: My laptop has 16gb ram (w10 - 1903) and a 4gb 1050ti. Launchbox is running from an external usb3 4tb seagate. Thanks in advance B.
  2. oh good idea, but that isn't an option for steam import. do i just try to import manually again then? does that affect steam games in any way? Thanks, BB
  3. Got a steam game that won't import and I'm mega confused. It parses at the import dialogue as normal, but then says "0 games were successfully imported". the only reason I can think is the first time I tried to import it, it wasn't recognised at all, (although it was in my steam library, I don't think it was in the database) , so I tried manually importing it as "none of the above" pointing directly to it's steam exe . I've since deleted it and now want to re-import properly. I've had a look through the xml's but can't find any remanence. Is there any other reason it wouldn't import? the game is question is called Rifter btw if that matters. thanks in advance. B
  4. Hey all, Grabbed a few games on steam recently and they were all detected/parsed in the import dialogue as normal, however one will not actually import. it's still detected when I go back though the motions but then I get "0 games imported successfully". Any clues? thanks, B
  5. Microsoft locked off access to the windowsapp folder that houses the .exe's, they don't put a shortcut in the menu either (this is how launchbox scans for other windows games). I don't know if they ever found a work around. you'll have to wait for Brad or Jason to confirm.
  6. Only 2 things from me; 1. Launchbox remembers the tick box settings for what media to import upon importing new roms, EXCEPT for the steam games import dialogue. presume it's a oversight as it's obviously possible in the other equivalent dialogues. 2. assignable key-commands/macros, for keys but hopefully for joypad too. Would really love a way to assign "choose random game" for example. B
  7. oh found it, it's an option in the options, (why isn't that on by default btw? ) anyways cheers for the heads up. B
  8. triggers don't scroll for me. Is it something i need to set up?
  9. hi all, Can't remember if this was in 'vanilla' LB but suddenly scrolling with a gamepad seems very hard to do. Analog stick is too sensitive to reliably grab the scroll bar (wired official 360 controller) and there seems to be no other way. Didn't we used to be able to hover the cursor over the edges (like map scroll in an RTS) ? or is it possible to assign anything? cheers in advance
  10. Solved it, I just found the replace text function inside notepad++. I'll leave this here for anyone in the same boat; In Launchbox/data/platforms there are .xml files for each platform. Open them, put your mouse cursor on the top line and Hit control+F for find, the second tab in the dialogue is "replace". type the beginning of the old directory (in my case G:\games) and leave the rest them either replace with the new location, or in my case I replaced with nothing as I am moving them inside launchbox for a portable setup and it doesn't need a drive for relative paths. Would still be good to have the inbuilt move tool do this though, I can't imagine a situation where relative path would be worse in anyway. B
  11. Hi guys Does anyone of you knowledgeable souls happen to know of a way to migrate roms/isos to a new location whilst keeping the relative folder structure? The inbuilt tool doesn't do it, it makes the new location absolute. I have some multi file/disc games in folders, or use folders for naming purposes sometimes. cheers in advance B.

    Genre Creation

    Hi everyone, Am I missing something, or is there no way to create genres?, only delete? I notice If I remove all games from one genre (e.g. I had just one game listed "Scrolling shooter" so I removed that genre and added it to "Shooter") then that genre disappears from the available tick list, so if I changed my mind, or wanted to create a genre I can't add one ? Is this correct? Thanks for your time. B
  14. Sorry I'm an idiot. it's yet another view option toggle we didn't know was there!!!!
