  1. yeah, i would on that pc, but for some reason it wont update (goes thru update, then reverts back to prior version) and i havent felt like digging into why. it works and only has my lb build so not real concerned about it. i know its not the same, but will try letting attract mode run on my laptop and see if it crashes. and there are no errors. it just the usual, Bigbox.exe is not responding.
  2. @Jason Carr i have noticed the same crashing. running Unified Refried and have latest nvidia driver (was crashing prior to newest driver as well), and VLC as media player. My cab is offline and does not have the most recent MS updates (only video driver and lb updates). I would have to check but i believe it is up to the April 2019 update. Is there a log or something i can provide or even get to help?
  3. Thanks for the reply. I forgot Refried used the addons. I got it to work properly by modifying the Arcade.xml in the Textgamesview folder. Using the Platforms view, arcade games now show high scores. Using the platform categories view, the high scores work as well. I dont have any arcade playlists so i couldnt test. I think you would only need to update the arcade related platforms. Especially if you actually break out Mame into specific platforms. Still a lot of work but i got mine working and know what i need to do for any others that dont work right. THANK YOU! One thing you may want to add to the instructions, if someone updates their theme, they will have to redo the modifications. I know the themes typically tell you that will happen when you update ,but may not hurt to put it as a note or warning.
  4. Great plugin. I can get it to work with bartop and neon deluxe themes. For some reason on unified refried, it doesn't focus the hi score window on top. I can tell it loads. If I switch to another theme from refried, the hi score window is there on the new theme and I have to close it. Any idea why?
  5. It is up to you, it's your cabinet. 🙂 Looking back, i regret doing the LED buttons, but they were cheap and still better than the stock buttons on the SF2 cab. There are ways to use the vol and power switches as buttons, but i went the route of just widening the hole for the switches just enough to put in a smaller button. you could always map other buttons but it is nice to have a dedicated button.
  6. Everyone has their opinions and there are other options out there, once the android version is up to speed, i dont think any of them will compare with LB. I have no problem paying the additional $5. (I used my google rewards anyway) I know the android version will be supported and constantly developed. Yeah it sucks to have to pay again but how many times a month to we blow $5 on stuff, fast food, coffee, etc. Jason did enable Google Home/family or whatever it is called. So if you have multiple accounts or users in the house, you only need to purchase once. I have an nvidia shield i have a family google account on, no need to buy the app twice.
  7. Thank you for the Google family feature. You rock! So glad I found launchbox a couple years ago.
  8. @Jason Carr Curious, will the android app be tied to one google account or will it have the "family share" feature?
  9. Check the Refried/Images/Theme/Addons/_Consoles folder. I believe those are the images you are looking for. RH has MSU-1 platform named as SNES CD. You can either rename your platform to match (may need to manually move your media into the new platform), or the easier thing is to go into the _Consoles folder and rename his SNESCD folder to match the name of your Platform.
  10. Awesome right up. Some day i will get to building a vpincab. Completely understand the different versions. I toyed with setting up Future Pinball and it's amazing how many different versions of tables there can be! Until you play it and get the "feel" it's hard to tell which is the better version or at least the one closest to what you may remember playing.
    Thank you. Works perfectly. May want to add that the .dll needs to be unblocked to the instructions/description. (at least i needed to)
  11. Try this (make a backup of the file first). Open the ThemeSettings.xml file located in Themes/Unified Refried while Big Box is closed. Go to the last few lines and change : Force16X9AspectRatio>True</Force16X9AspectRatio> to Force16X9AspectRatio>False</Force16X9AspectRatio>. Save your change and open Big Box. There may be a little bit of the bars but should look better. If that doesnt work, change the 16x9 to False and change the next line <Force4X3AspectRatio>False</Force4X3AspectRatio to <Force4X3AspectRatio>True</Force4X3AspectRatio. One my modded arcade1up, just swapping the 16X9 to False and 4X3 to True worked. But on my laptop with a standard 4:3 monitor i had to make both lines False to get Big Box to display right.
  12. Rh has the refried platform videos that are loaded to the launchbox forums. Takes care of just about everything you need.

    As far as Retro achievements, for me, not a lot of interest in it. I can see them in the RA menu and in BB and LB. Since RA gives you a message on achieving, i am not sure what else people would want. I would love to see custom images per platform. Something like Rocket Launcher (sorry) if at all possible. If LB/BB doesn't see a game specific image, you can have a default platform image to fall back on. This would allow people to set up either say a default controller with general system controls or go game with a game specific one. Being able to see these in the pause menu would be nice. Would be nicer if we had a controller image options for consoles/handhelds/pinball similar to the Arcade controls.
