  1. You shouldn't need to use the core commands anymore, as you can simply go into the Retroarch emulator settings in LB, go into the Associated Platforms tab, and the select the core for the platform in question from the drop down. For your example, for Super Nintendo Entertainment System (or whatever platform you have it called) click the drop down and select snes9x_libretro.dll from the list. If the core is not in the drop down, or it says missing core, then you need to download the core first via retroarch's core installer section. If you do need to use that command line parameter, for example for a game-specific situations, it should still work fine, but you need to make sure you have the correct syntax in the command line. In your example above you have spaces between the cores and the \ and the dll file name. I'm not sure if this is just a typo or if this is actually what you're trying to use. If this is what you actually have, then this is not the proper syntax and will not work. You should be using the following if you have to use that older format: -L "cores\snes9x_libretro.dll" Notice no spaces between the cores and the \ and the snes9x_libretro.dll. Again though, this will only work if you actually that that core downloaded and installed in retroarch's cores folder.... which if it worked for you before, it should be Hope this helps, CDBlue
  2. Ok, I tried Mesen stand-alone and the lastest Mesen on on the latest nightly of Retroarch, and had no issues with the HD Packs I have installed. On both, the packs worked, and the controls worked without issues. Not sure what the issue might be for you now, as I can't reproduce it. I'm out of ideas as to why it wouldn't work for you, because if the buttons mapped correctly, then your controls should work with or without the HD packs
  3. Just re-read your original post. I guess you can ignore the above because you said you mapped it in the emulator lol. I'll test my HD Packs when I get home to see if maybe they're broken in the latest versions.
  4. Hmm, ok. next thoughts then :). In the stand-alone Mesen, did you go through the input mapping section in the options? And, if so, did it recognize/map properly there? By default, the Mesen stand-alone won't likely work with a controller until you map the inputs to your actual controller, as opposed to Retroarch which usually just works with most controllers without having to map the inputs. Open Mesen, select Options/Input. On the window that pops up, select setup next to player on, then go through and assign mappings to all the buttons/d-pad inputs, etc.
  5. I haven't played with the HD packs in a while, but it sounds like maybe a corrupted HD Pack. If it doesn't allow you to play in the stand-alone, or the retroarch core, it might be related to that. But, just because you didn't specify, you should also make sure you're running the latest version of the stand-alone, and the latest version of Retroarch and the Mesen core. As of the time of this post: Mesen standalone - latest version is 0.99 (https://www.mesen.ca/#Downloads) Retroarch - latest version is 1.8.9 (https://www.retroarch.com/?page=platforms) Mesen core - You can download it via the Core Installer option in retroarch, or update via the core updater option in retroarch (or if you do cores manually, you can grab the latest version from the nightly buildbot - https://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/windows/x86_64/latest/mesen_libretro.dll.zip) It's especially important to keep retroarch updated, because sometimes they introduce new features that the cores use. So, if you're using an updated core on an older version of retroarch, it might be glitchy and/or not work at all. Not sure if that's the case with Mesen, but it's good to keep them both updated either way to ensure smooth functionality in general. Hope this helps, CDBlue
  6. 1) Yes. You can delete those files, but I would recommend to not delete the most recent version... in case you ever need to re-install you can just run that file again instead of having to download from the website. 2) Yes, I believe so. As long as in your image settings for priorities, you have box front reconstructed listed below box front, then it should only pull the reconstructed one if the box front image is not found.
  7. Sorry, I don't think I have any multi disk games in my collection, so someone else might need to assist with that question.
  8. We might need a little more info before anyone will likely be able to possibly assist you. Can you post a screenshot of your emulator settings for Dolphin Triforce in Launchbox? The likely tabs we would likely need to see are the Details tab, and the Associated Platforms tabs in the Launchbox emulator screen. That being said, my guess through, is that there is a default command line parameter that's missing, or misconfigured. I know for normal dolphin (not triforce), the normal command line parameter you want to pass to Dolphin via LB is -b -e. If you're using an older version of Dolphin/Triforce it might be /b /e (I know Dolphin changed their command line settings from / to - a while back... not sure if the Triforce version of Dolphin switched to the using - as well. Hope this helps, CDBlue
  9. Sounds like you might not have retroarch setup/linked properly in Launchbox. Here's a good tutorial on how to setup Launchbox, and how to setup/link the retroarch emulator to it.
  10. Sorry, not sure about Spectabis, never even heard of it to be honest. Just curious though, why use a frontend for PCSX2, when you're using launchbox as a frontend? I know that some games you might need to tweak settings in PCSX2 in order for them to work correctly, but I've found that most games play just fine with the PCSX2 settings that I normally use (3x upscalling, OpenGL, Hardware Hacks/Aligh Sprites, FSSAA, etc.)... as long as you have a decent PC that is. Do you have the emulator in LB for PS2 games setup as spectabis, and not PCSX2? If so, then you likely need to find out what the options are to exit spectabis, or you might need to map an exit hotkey in it. If you can do that, you should be able to tell LB what keypress to pass on to Spectabis when you use your exist command in LB, and it should pass it on to Spectabis and exit.
  11. FYI, if you also have an emumovies account, you can get platform theme videos there, that might not be listed in the automated download options in launchbox... https://emumovies.com/files/category/2031-video-themes/ is one place where you can get more.
  12. Correct, that's how I do it. I have a folder called bigbox cinematics, unified, and unified refried. I downloaded those platform videos a while back, and simply copy the ones I want to use into the main videos/platforms folder when I want to use them. The reason each item is selected is because it detects which platforms you have in your collection that also don't have any platform videos downloaded yet. It will default to the first one of the list I believe, but at the bottom you can prioritize as you mentioned. Keep in mind though, there are alot of platform theme videos out there, but not for every platform for a specific type. For example, if you prioritize bigbox cinematics, it will select those for each platform that they exist... but you might have several that don't have those types, and it will still just select the first one of the list. Best to review each selection before you click ok, to make sure it's downloading what you want
  13. Yes, what @neil9000 says is correct. Also, the name of the platform video has to match the platform name. So, if you download Arcade.mp4, in your case, you will want to rename it to Mame.mp4 so it will play when you select your Mame platform Also, FYI, from the LB download section for platform videos, you can also download videos for your arcade auto-generated playlists. So, even if you choose to use the unified refried videos from the forum/download page, you should still look at the LB downloads and download the platform videos for those that are not covered in the themes.
  14. You can only have 1 set of videos for platforms. So, you can either download some via the options in LaunchBox, or if they are not available there, you can download them via the forums. For example, Unified Refried's platform theme videos are not available via the LaunchBox platform media download section. So, if you choose to go with Unified Refried, and want to use his platform videos, you need to download them manually and put them in the ../videos/platforms folder in LaunchBox on your PC manually. As an example, if you downloaded the above videos, and put them in your ../videos/platforms forlder in LB, then proceeded to download videos via the tool/options in Launchbox, it would overwrite those videos and you would now just have the ones you selected in LB. There are ways around this though. In themes, if it doesn't have it, you can also create a ../videos/platforms folder structure in the theme itself, and put videos you just want for that theme in that folder. When BB runs, it will look to play videos from there before it looks in the normal location in the launchbox folders to play those instead. Hope that makes sense
  15. You need to download platform theme/videos via Launchbox. That will be the video that displays for each platform selected while in BB. For themes in BB, there are many as you can see, but my goto is usually Unified Refried This theme is extra good because he also supplies theme/platform videos that you can manually download (that fit his theme perfectly) as well as platform logos (which you also would need to manually download and put in the correct folders in your LB directory). Have a look at it and see if it's what you're looking for. Either way, as I said, there are tons of themes and I'm sure you will be able to find one to your tastes.
