  1. 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.
  2. 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?
  3. Any possibility of enabling smb shares? I have all my games on nas, would rather not have an external drive on my shield
  4. 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?
  7. 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....
  8. 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.
  9. @NJDave71 any chance of putting out a tutorial for creating these files???
  10. 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 }
  11. how do I define the emulator and game name? I am running this for every game in c64.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
  14. @latin625 did you ever post your ugc files? I would like to take a look at them.. Could you upload?
  15. 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
  16. @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.
  17. 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
  18. 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.
  19. 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
  20. Thanks guys. Anyone know any way to use servo stiks without using rocket launcher? I am currently using rocket launcher with no servo stiks so I don't imagine it will be very hard to set it up, but have been contemplating uninstalling RL as I could probably get most of the things I like through BB now (except maybe Servostik, led blinky, hyper Marquee)
  21. Cool, i wasnt sure as the the site lists emulation as "Discuss emulators, console platforms, and related games." to me that is a software related forum, but that cool. Thanks for looking at the message
  22. @Jason Carr Can we get a Sub-forum under Off Topic for Controllers? So I need to get some user input as to how I should connect and Ipac Ultimate, 2 Ultimarc U360 controllers, 2 spintraks, and 1 Happ 3" Track ball. I originally planned on connecting everything to the Ipac Ultimate. However, I asked Andy how to get this accomplished and he basically sent an email stating "Usually its not necessary to connect the U360 to the I-PAC. The output mode was originally intended for situations where there is no USB port on the host. It will work fine in Mame if just connected via USB, in all games" i know that I don't have to connect it, but what if I change my ipac to Dinput or Xinput mode? Don't I want my U360 to change with it? I also want to use this control for other emulators like N64 and lower
  23. Robin, which game or games do you have this problem with? If the games work fine using the version of launchbox that came with the exodos, but doesn't work when using need version, you should probably ask @Jason Carr.
  24. I second what @Line said above. I also would second the suggestion that we should be able to see the picture of the control panel. Emumovies has a downloaded file with a lot of the arcade control panels included. Errors I have found On Occasion Pause screen freezes up after viewing manual. I thought it was a rocketlauncher, but even after i disabled rocketlauncher it was still occasionally locking up. I tried it on 2 games and it locked up on Bagman mostly. Great Work @Jason Carr
