  1. Im adding the Wolf Pack now. Let me know if you ever want those image files, I dont mind doing them.
  2. Great stuff, cheers
  3. I actually added your Doom Mods to my set up. I'll check out your other stuff. My image file is 118gb. I dont mind uploading it to my Dropbox if you want it.
  4. For people more into it like ourslesves it might be easier but for your average person, people just starting up after buying a Pi or somehting its nowhere near as easy as it was. It's all ad filled, download a game on some dodgy hosting 'pay to download fast' crap now. Some sites even charge to just download altogether. They used to be way more clean sites. I know many sites to get my stuff, the Internet Archive like you said for example. It's a fantastic site. I used the script for Emuparadise after it shut down but I got pretty much everything I needed off that so dont bother with it anymore. Tbf Arcade Punks and piggies sets gave me more old obscure systems than anything else. IA has helped massivle though with getting manulas, bios files, covers and various packs. These are sites I became aware of after getting deeper into it and knowing what I was lookign for. Anyway rather than go aorund in circles with you saying its easy and me saying it isnt as easy as it was in the past, let's just agree to disagree on that issue. We both have our opinions which is cool. We both love Retro gaming, we can agree on that
  5. I didnt mean to cause an arguement. I should have probably worded it better meaning Roms arnt as easy to get as they used to be with Nintendo going after sites. Yeah they are still there if you look deep enough. Thankfully sites like Arcade Punks exist. Can we all just agree we love retro gaming and buiklding launchbox collections ha ha. As a update I stopped adding systems last week at 198. The games got up 41469 games. I probs never stop adding games when the later emulators improve for the like of the 360 and Switch, and if I see a system I dont have i'll add that too. Was a huge a mount of fun doing it
  6. Joking aside yes that what I'm doing, just building a collection of gaming history on one unit. My son plays on it and my wife plays on it too. It's just everything there in one place for anyone to enjoy. Roms are disappearing all the time. It's cool to keep a good collection of them. I'm sure a lot of people that use Launchbox do the same. Some people collect figures, records etc, I collect games
  7. Nevermind months later I got it working. I had the wrong rom type (ctg instead of rpk). All good
  8. I've collected the romsets over a few years. However I got a lot from Arcade Punks recently, particularly Piggies sets. The eumlators for Apple II is Apple Win and Apple IIGS is Mess (Mame). I mainly use Retroarch and Mess (Mame) overall but they are loads of different ones like Dolphin, Teknoparrot and system specific ones.
  9. I'm having a ballache trying to get this to run. I've got it running in Mame however once it boots up you need to type BLOAD"",R then use the tape control. Easy yeah, afraid not. I can't find the , key as its a russian keyboard and ive tried every key, I can find the rest lol. Alternatively all the games can be played via browser on a mad russian forum however I want this added to Launchbox. Unless there is a way to create a file to boot from the URL. Either way I'm stumped. Does anyone have this running? Thanks in advance.
  10. This whole post helped me get it all working without having to search other tutorials or do a stupid amount of searching. Fantastic, thanks for all your efforts P.S. I don't suppose you know how to get the TI99 working. Still the one platfrom that stumps me lol
  11. I've had Launchbox for about 3 years and built it up iover that time. Then about a month ago I decided to redo the whole thing as it had become messy and a bit out dated on some of the systems. So I bought a 8tb external and got to work. I've made logos etc for the systems that didnt have them. I've added bezels, overlays and shaders espcially for handhelds and arcade games. The theme is City Hunter 2. Currently sat 135 systems and 35336 games and still adding some. I've got them all working bar TI-99 (any help on that would be appriciated), cant seem to get it going properly. It's been an enjoyable month.
  12. I can't get any game to run. I have the ti99_4a.zip file in the Mame rom folder. I have the command line set as ti99_4a -cart yet everytime i try to run a game it pops up intialising, then goes straight off. Any suggestions?
  13. Apologies if this has already been covered but I did do a search and couldn't find anything. Would it be possible to view games with missing images only? I mean say you clicked on 'all' then had a option to just show games with missing images, this could save a lot of time when it comes to getting images for those games. i.e Mame, takes a while to scroll through to find games missing images amongst those that have them. I know you can bulk search however sometimes games arn't found in the database due to spelling etc. If this is already a option I would apprciate on been told how to do it. Thank you.
  14. Nice one. Thanks for replying guys.
  15. There is no right click on the android version
  16. Is there anyway to do this? i.e. change Sega Genesis to Sega Mega Drive.
  17. You can customize images in the images folder in the Launchbox directory
  18. Yes I know this however when you select Sega Saturn when you export it will only export the first file, no other files. So when I originally had all the files both bin and cue, it only imported bin not the cue files. Then even when you manually added the cue files after, it still wouldnt work. So I removed the bin files leaving just the cue files then did the export. Then I manually added the bin files to the android folder. Now it works.
  19. Actually scrap that I just sussed it. I removed all the bin files. Then exported to android. Went in the Android folder and added the bin files and now it works. it must read the cues instead of the bins. Thanks for your help, I would have never have sussed that unless you said about it not exporting the files.
  20. You were right sort of. It was the other way round it had copied the bin but not the cue files. So I placed them in the folder with the games. Same result uinfortuntaely. Guess they aint gonna work for now until maybe a new update comes out. Bummer. Thanks for your help though.
  21. Ive tried various roms of the same game. The roms runs fine on my pc version.
