  1. Any possibility to get xbox game pass games added to launchbox? They have a gamepass specifically for pc now and it basically works like live does.
  2. One more problem! Anyone use any kind of program or have any suggestion on how to make my controllers and mice learn in to same controller port everytime? For instance I have 2 ultimark u360 controllers that I need to always be learned in as controller 1 and 2. I also have a trackball and 2 spinners that I need learned in as mouse 1,2,3 everytime. My issue is now it is being learned in as mouse 5. How it got there I do not know. Edit: This is a windows thing not an emulator or other software issue, but I am looking for a software or hardware solution!
  3. So, I am having this problem that I just can't figure out. My setup is pc, windows 10, lo launchbox, mame .211, ipac ultimate, u360. Mitt problem is sometimes when we hit sw2 (s) and sw3 (q) in some combination. Occasionally it acts like we hit alt-tab and goes back to launchbox, but mame is still loaded. We can not duplicate it, it just happens sometimes. I think it really has to do with either launchbox or the ipac or possibly something strange happening to power on the ipac. Any suggestions Edit: someone in another group posted this. I do have rocketlauncher, ledblinky, winpac, and ultramap running on the system q and s is the Exit Script hotkey in RocketLauncher which force closes RL. You can change that hotkey in RocketLauncherUI on the General Settings -> Control tab. Or remap the ipac
  4. I would a hundred percent agree with this diagnosis.
  5. @Jason Carr Here to. I noticed that Mame took 15 minutes to finish but Sega Genesis took like an hour. Unknown reason but nothing crashed! I am now done adding games to my shield and now to worry about other issues I will probaby run into with my setup!
  6. I have a shield 2019 and I still have issues importing games, with newest update available to me. Can't check which version but I just reinstalled yesterday. So i set it to ame import and it goes for an hour or so and then I find that the app crashes. Of course then I wasted an hour of my life. It has also happened on Super Nintendo. I am REALLY looking forward to being able to import just the games and add the images later.
  7. yeah I am new to shield and I think im learning that it uses smb1. Is there a way to move the images to the external hard drive, instead of the system cache?
  8. Any possibility of enabling smb shares? I have all my games on nas, would rather not have an external drive on my shield
  9. It is a little annoying and unknown why it needs to be this way. To my recollection you can turn off commands for player 2,3,4 but not change them

    Change Hotkeys

    Where at, I only see for controllers. ok So i learned that LEDBlinky uses the settings in Bigboxsettings.xml, is this also where Launchbox gets there settings?

    Change Hotkeys

    @Jason Carr Is this option also in launchbox? can it be added? Even if it is a Paid option. Also can you list what the shortcuts are currently? Or are they actually added in big box and converted down to launchbox?
  12. Ok so I liked Gamebase because it was a good list of files, All the games I remember were on it. Most of the other lists didn't include a couple of games I remembered. So all I really wanted it for, was the games. However the naming makes no sense, so if you look back at page 2, I developed a little script to rename the files to something both I and launchbox likes. Launchbox still has its issues with some of the games, but....
  13. Keep up the great work! I was dealing with issues with Rocketlauncher and Mame and wanted to try the newest version (I had .213) I decided for the next couple days i could use the original verison of .214, so I don't know why I posted.
  14. @NJDave71 any chance of putting out a tutorial for creating these files???
  15. Sorry, I am completely confused now.. Do i put the whole thing in? TIMEOUT /T 3 :while1 FOR /F %%x IN ('tasklist /NH /FI "IMAGENAME eq %GAMENAME%"') DO IF %%x == %GAMENAME% goto FOUND goto FIN :FOUND TIMEOUT /T 5 goto :while1 :FIN taskkill /f /im joytokill.exe $Esc:: { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} Process, Close, joytokill.exe } define emulator as %GAMENAME% set "GAMENAME=someprogram.exe" like that, or are you saying just do this now $Esc:: { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} Process, Close, joytokill.exe }
  16. how do I define the emulator and game name? I am running this for every game in c64.
  17. Ok Ive been using rocketlauncher with mame for a couple years now. Always worked. I just switched my pc and upgraded to .0213 now it throws up an error when I TRY TO LOAD MAME. Process.Run - Running: "C:\Games\Emulators\MAME\mame64.exe" 20pacgal -rompath "C:\Games\Launchbox\games\Arcade;C:\Games\Emulators\MAME\roms" -nowindow -nohlsl_enable -nogl_glsl -video d3d -artwork_crop -nouse_bezels -use_overlays -use_backdrops -nouse_cpanels -nouse_marquees -nofilter -skip_gameinfo Process.Run - Running: "C:\Games\Emulators\MAME\mame64.exe" 20pacgal -rompath "C:\Games\Launchbox\games\Arcade;C:\Games\Emulators\MAME\roms" -nowindow -nohlsl_enable -nogl_glsl -video d3d -artwork_crop -nouse_bezels -use_overlays -use_backdrops -nouse_cpanels -nouse_marquees -nofilter -skip_gameinfo So i have learned if I delete all but the following, it works "C:\Games\Emulators\MAME\mame64.exe" 20pacgal -rompath "C:\Games\Launchbox\games\Arcade; \\mediacenter\VideoGames\Games\Mame;C:\Games\Emulators\MAME\roms" -nowindow -nohlsl_enable -nogl_glsl -nofilter -skip_gameinfo However I do not know how to delete those in the mame.ahk file Also mame does work through mame64.exe gui, command prompt, and If I load mame manually in rocketlauncher it loads but if I try to run a game it fails ______________________________Update________________________________________ Ok so this issue actually started with .0212 and has been fixed with a new mame.ahk you can find the file and the fix here http://www.rlauncher.com/forum/showthread.php?6201-MAME-v0-212-don-t-launch-with-RocketLauncher&goto=newpost&highlight=mame+cli
  18. So I just moved my installation of everything over to a new computer and everything was going good until I noticed my ahk wasn't working on commodore 64. @Jason Carr was there anything done to running ahk from the emulators settings lately? So what I am trying to do is run joytokey.exe with a particular profile before I run winvice, and then closing joytokey upon exit of winvice. This used to work, however now I can not get it to. My current ahk script reads this Run, "C:\games\joytokey\joytokey.exe" WinWait, ahk_exe x64.exe WinWaitClose ; Wait for the exact window found by WinWait to be closed. Run, "C:\games\joytokey\joytokeykill.bat" everything seems to work except the joytokeykill.bat does not run. Also you may notice that Joytokey.exe does not run a particular profile. I would love it to choose just a profile, but when I set it up I could not get it to work, so any help there would be great also. My file JoytoKeykill.bat does work if I manually load it.
  19. @latin625 did you ever post your ugc files? I would like to take a look at them.. Could you upload?
  20. I followed a couple of different youtube videos. I got the u360s, the ipaq ultimate, the restrictor plates, as well as the servostiks. All of this has been pretty frustrating. First to install the newest version of the u360s with the restrictor plate you have (or I felt like I did) to carefully drill out the holes for the pegs, then install the restrictors and servostiks. Hooked it up, but the joysticks still were not operating correctly. Then I tried removing the servostik and the restrictors and they started operating better but still pretty horibly. I ended up researching other peoples 8-way config files and found part of the problem. For me to seem to fix this, I ahd to put sticky keys around the center. This made 8 way and 4 way games playable and not bleed over to diagonals, even when they were turned off. They always seemed soooo touchy. Barely move the joy up and left and you were going diagonal. This seems to be fixed but we haven't tested it quite yet. So in conclusion I am now only using the U360s and not the servostik or the restrictors. I feel the secret to the U360s is getting the 4-way and 8-way profiles correct, so that mame can handle the rest. I also have this setup through rocketlauncher and using @dbinott ultrastik configurations located here
  21. @dbinott Thank you for ths. Could you send some more info on how you have used these. Are you using Bigbox, Rocketlauncher, or anything else? Where did you put the files? any other helpful things or more profiles? @Fablog How I use these is with Rocketlauncher (I am 95% sure I know how to work them). I put them in my rocketlauncher profile directory under mame. Then in settings you make sure ultramap is turned on and it knows where your executable is located. Or if you don't want to set up rocketlauncher, you could do what @James35is doing. This would be a long process and I don't know of a quick way to do any of it. I believe I read in the beta forum that they are looking into making additional apps a lot easier to work with.
  22. If you follow my directions it should work on each gamebase. It was rather easy, although it would be a more official way if @Jason Carr could happen to find a way... I didn't notice this on the 2019 vote
  23. I have never heard of this. Windows doesn't really assign the drive letters to the nas. You assign them by mapping them to your pc. Some people have to create a scheduled task to reassign the mapped. drive on every reboot, but not much of an issue. Now windows had problems with assigning controllers (joysticks) different Id #s, but that had nothing to do with nas. I live my little nas device, I have the readynas 214. I would suggest something a little more powerful for plex and movies, but overall very happy with it.
  24. So first I got my first commodore 64 game working using Joytokey and additional apps. I put a startup app to load joytokey, and then a batch file to kill joytokey after closing emulator. That worked, however it only worked for the one game. I need 20,000 C64 games to work. So I tried an autohotkey script. So I got the autohotkey to load jpytpkeu amd an exit script to run the bat file. However, it didn't run the batch file. So then I tried using the following cod e to kill it. if WinExist("JoyToKey Ver6.1.1 : Joytokey") WinClose ; use the window found above this again failed to load upon exit of the emulator. I have verified both ways worked independently, but not through Launchbox. ------------------------------Edit-------------------------- Ok so I got it working, however I would lke to see how to do it the proper way with ahk script in begging and end. Here is the code I used Run, d:\games\joytokey\joytokey.exe WinWait, ahk_exe x64.exe WinWaitClose ; Wait for the exact window found by WinWait to be closed. Run, "d:\games\joytokey\joytokeykill.bat" and here is my version of joytokeykill.bat taskkill /IM joytokey.exe /F This is specifically for Winvice but you can use it with any emulator, you just change the ahk_exe section
