8-Bit Processor (3/7)



  1. Is there a way to launch straight into big box on startup?
  2. I would like to be able to replace the inside of a ps1 with a small computer and have it boot up with a video that looks just like the ps1 does when it is first turned on. Next, have it go directly into a full screen coverflow of my ps1 game collection. Is this possible with big box or a custom theme right now? Thank you!!!
  3. I agree with you. I used a plugin called image search 2.0 from the download section to fill in all of my missing are work. It's not perfect but it helps out a lot. I had to rename some of the artwork I downloaded to match the name of my roms. Only about 1 in 20 were named wrong.
  4. I would also like to see this done. Maybe even add a feature right into launch box that will compress all of our images that we already have and delete the old bigger images.
  5. I would love to see this feature as well!!
  6. I really like how launch box merges roms with the same name and only one game is displayed. Would love to see a feature that allows us delete roms based on region preferences. For example; if I had mortal kombat (usa), mortal kombat (pal), and mortal kombat (japan), I could set up region preference to keep usa roms but when a usa Rom is not available to keep a pal Rom but when neither the usa or pal Rom is available to keep a Japan Rom. The would be awesome. If this feature is already available please let me know. Thank you!!
  7. I've been using the image search plugin to fill in my missing box art and it has really helped me out. I've got at least one image for every game in my collection with the help of this awesome tool. Is there a way to view what videos are missing in launch box? I noticed in the videoscraper plugin tutorial that he can see the video on the right hand side of the screen when he clicks on a game in launch box. I have autoplay video selected but not video plays. Is this just me or is this happening for everyone. i updated from the latest beta to the current stable version recently. Do you think this has something to do with it? Thank you. Update- did not realize there was more than one page of plugins. Found a great plugin for downloading videos. There are a lot of good ones. I select box art in launch box to view all of the covers but I don't see a way to view the videos. Thanks to anyone who can help with this.
  8. I think my launch box media collection is around 300 to 400 gb with the roms. How big do you think the cache would be? Thanks for the great tutorial on moving the cache. Awesome idea!!
  9. I'm looking at either getting sandisk 960gb sata ssd or 1tb samsung m2 drive. If there is not much difference in the real life load times, I was going to get the sata drive. The coverflow takes a while to load off a 3.0 usb.

    Sata vs M2 ssd

    Has anyone compared the load times of the cover art between a ssd, regular hard drive, and m2 hard drive? I have a 250gb sata ssd running Windows but i have my launch box collection on a 8tb usb 3.0 hard drive. I have 3 sata 3.5 inch bays and 1 M2 slot in my computer. Should I get a sata hard drive or a M2 hard drive to put my launch box covers and media on? I will leave my roms on my 8tb usb hard drives. Thank you for any suggestions on this.

    Rom naming

    I've noticed certain games with versions in the names get skipped when downloading media. Dreamcast collection did this alot due to version numbers in the names. Anyone have any tips or lists I can use to rename my roms to ensure my roms will have the best chance at getting media downloaded for them. I mostly use no-intro and redump collections. Also, is there a tool or simi-easy way to rename the roms and media files I already have at the same time? I've manually added in 100's or maybe even 1,000's of the missing box art pictures. Mostly the front 2D & 3D covers. Thank you
  12. Thanks for all of the responses. I have the 0.187 set and just worried about incompatibility. I have not experienced any incompatibility though.
  13. I had to redo my retroarch and the Mame core is now 0.188. Is there anywhere I can go to get the 0.187 core? Thank you.
  14. Thank you
