  1. If you mean the setting in user interface to "pause content when not active", that was already set to off. I'll look into the LB startup/shutdown that you mentioned...
  2. And, I did make sure that the game pause option was unchecked in LB if that's in any way related.
  3. So, this one has me stumped. It only occurs when I run Retroarch through LB, not when I run it standalone. I set my Hotkey to Select, and I save state through Select-R1. When I do that, though, I get a message on the lower right that says "null" before it says the state was saved, but then I get a screen with a start/pause icon in the upper right. At that point, I'm pretty much frozen, I can exit the game with Start-Select but nothing else. I tried every change I can think of in Retroarch but like I said, if I run Retroarch standalone, no problem, it's only when I launch through LB.
  4. I'll see if I can find that video, I did click on that option and there's nothing in there. So, I changed the Retroarch config so that enable netplay uses a keystroke I never use (}). That resolved the save state issue, it works now. But, the load state (which is Select-L1 for me) still send me to the Quick Menu but all controls are frozen once I see those alerts at the bottom. Weird....
  5. I checked that setting and there's no button set for that; I thought that might be the issue but I don't see that I've set that anywhere. I can save/load if I go to Quick Menu first, but I prefer to do it directly while in-game. Any other ideas?
  6. As an update: I tried deleting the retroarch.cfg file, and it appears this happens only when LB is running. If I close LB and run Retroarch by itself, I don't get the problem. If I launch a game from Retroarch OR if LB is running in the background and I launch Retroarch, I get the issues I am describing. And, I don't have Steam installed, I saw in a previous thread that this was causing issues, I don't have Steam on this PC not do I have the Steam plug-in installed in LB.
  7. Hi All, So, I moved my LB to a new computer. Everything appears to be working but I am getting this strange issue with Retroarch I can't figure out. I'm using an Xbox 360 wireless controller. Mapped all the buttons, hotkey enabled to the Select button, etc. The problem occurs when I try to save a state, which is Select-R1 for me. I get a series of notifications in the bottom left that in order are: Waiting for client You have joined as Player 1 Port Mapping successful then it shows my WAN IP At this point, it goes to the quick menu (which I set as L3-R3) and then
  8. THANK YOU! That did the trick. Funny, I always I thought I had installed to the /Launchbox folder instead of the root of the drive to overwrite it, but your solution worked. Thanks again 🙂
  9. Yes, exactly. I didn't before I tried to do the new 11.9 install but I do now. See attached, Core is the top image, root on the bottom.
  10. Tried that also, get this error attached. Basically, I try to run the update whenever I start LB as it prompts me to do that. After it installs and tries to open, I get that error about Dropbox, and it reverts back to 11.8. If I try to just download and run the 11.9 file from the website, it doesn't install to the root LB where the current Launchbox.exe is, but instead to the /Core subfolder, which doesn't work because running that .exe is just opening a version of LB that doesn't see the previous installation, it's functioning like a fresh install. When I try to run that alrea
  11. When I try to launch the update, I get an error message that it can't apply the update because the file may be in Dropbox (it isn't), see attached. When I try to download and run the setup file, it is installing the main Launchbox files and .exe in the Launchbox/Core folder rather than the root that I specify, so launching it just opens a fresh install of LB, it doesn't recognize my files, license, etc. Anyone know how to fix this? Thanks for any help.
  12. Thanks, I actually tried what you suggested and removed the retroarch.cfg and it seems to have worked. I was on 1.7.3 I think. The Retroarch menu looks different than what I recall, it was fullscreen with a blue background, now it's grey with more of a menu-like apprearance. But, I was able to get proper keyboard functioning by remaking the .cfg file.
  13. Hi All, Decided to upgrade my very old version of Retroarch to 1.9 and can't seem to figure out what I'm doing wrong. Basically, my keyboard commands are not working correctly if at all. I set up (and configured/confirmed) Retroarch so that, for example, the ESC key was to quit Retroarch, F1 is for Menu, F2 is Quick Save, F12 is Quick Load, etc. When I press ESC, it brings me to the Quick Menu. F1, F2, F12...they do absolutely nothing. I made sure my configuration was changed and have gone through the various menus to see what I could be doing wrong, but I'm stumped right now.
  14. Hi All, Trying to set up a way to exit my emulators similar to the Start/Select I use with Retroarch. From reading up on this, it seems I need to set up Controller Automation, but I don't see that as an option. Is it only available in Premium/BB version of the software? Is there another way to do this? Thanks for any help.
  15. Thanks! Knew it had to be hiding in plain sight somewhere 🙂
