    Launchbox 8.3 Change Log

    Thanks mate. Yeah, those two things I thought were gonna be all in your face, and I don't want to use either of them.

    Launchbox 8.3 Change Log

    I'm still on version 7.14 and have been hesitant to update. One of the reasons is RetroAchievements and the star ratings. Can these be turned off in these later versions? Also, has the issue with Additional Applications been corrected? It's where you have consolidated 2 or more ROMS and then change the default emulator for the main ROM but the others still use the old emulator.

    This was a valuable piece of information. Have a thumbs up on me.

    A little help with Demul

    Yeah, seems like a good idea. I've just checked my cache and I have 10,000 files in it dating back to around 2015. Bear in mind that the current version of Demul that I use is the 0.7 11-11-2017 version and I've carried these over from previous Demul versions back to probably v0.582. PM me for a link. They are 100mb unpacked, 600k compressed lol. I'd suggest do a Malware / Virus scan on the archive first and to rename your existing folder to "scache-old" or something, just incase you want to use it again and my one doesn't make any difference.

    A little help with Demul

    Yeah, I was really put off by this stuttering in Demul until I realised it was creating a cache of each game in real time. I've never deleted the cache either and I have transferred it to each new version of Demul that has come out. Even now, after about 3 years of using it, I'll still get the odd stutter or freeze, I guess this is when the game throws up a new texture, but it rarely happens now. I'd sometimes just run random DC games in BigBox and go away and make dinner or something just so Demul can cache it up. Infact, I'm gonna give Blue Stinger a go in a minute and see what happens. It's been a while. FYI too, the Cemu (Wii U) emulator does a similar sort of thing. Those caches are way more involved though, with some forums created specifically for posting and trading Cemu caches heh.

    A little help with Demul

    That is a good question actually and one that I don't know the answer to. The reason being is that I'm quite rubbish at games and have never got so far that I've needed to swap discs, on any system lol. I have my discs in separate archive files. I have imported them all and then they come up as duplicates in the Audit feature. I have then consolidated them in LaunchBox so that all the discs are consolidated under Disc 1. As for the method of actually switching discs while in game, I'm not actually sure about in Demul. I might try and play a game for more than an hour for research purposes so I can be of more help

    Did you ever get to go inside John Romero's opulent (and some people say, offensive) offices?

    Great post! I love reading these nostalgic MS-DOS posts in much the same way I love the "Lazy Game Reviews" or LGR channel over on YouTube. The passion in which you guys speak about the platform is palpable. I feel like I missed out but at least I get a little feel for it thanks to your project and DOSBOX. Speaking of shaders etc, I actually prefer to play a game like Quake and Doom totally vanilla. No source ports, no scaling or supereagle. Just 1920x1080 and some lovely mid 90's slightly jaggy polygons. Too many enhancements, I feel, takes away from how it was originally.

    I love this. And your first post too! Thanks. Yeah, it seems like the PC went up a gear around 93-94 with the advent of the CD-ROM and the death of the Amiga. (I find that whole era fascinating because I was an Amiga 1200 fanboy at the time and never played anything DOS until relatively recently, thanks to eXoDOS.)

    What has it got to do with me? I'm just a dude on the internet advising you that putting a hot CRT monitor in an enclosed space is probably not a good idea.

    Back then, did the PC platform feel inferior to the Amiga at the time? I'm in the UK and the Amiga was big here but I always thought the PC was superior and yet, just recently, I read someone else say that around 1994 "the PC starting emerging from under the shadow of the Amiga". I found this surprising because I always thought the Amiga was the underdog.

    If you did that, you would probably end up setting fire to your house and incinerating your family. You know those things get hot, right?

    What "aesthetic issues" are these Dan? We were all thinking that you were a DOS aficionado, looking for the real deal.
  14. No no. Just those MS-DOS games I listed above. I'm keeping away from that plugin now. My media is a bit leftfield for the LB Database. I think I know the DS Games you're talking about though. Some dude was uploading 3D Boxes x3 for each game. He was using the plugin too. Ooof.

    Excellent post. I love to hear / read people reminiscing about DOS. Such a MIGHTY platform when you think about it. Two decades! PS. Acrid smell of smoke if you used your Uncles PC - Hahahaha!
