  1. Thanks for the reply. I am guessing I probably told it not to import clones because I don't want Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles UK showing up instead of the American one. Is there a way to override that on a game-by-game basis?
  2. Thanks for the reply! I am not sure but here is Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, which I have 3 versions of according to the files in my roms folder
  3. Thanks for the replies! The problem is I don't see each game as individual games in LB. Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 only shows up once, even though I have 3 revisions of the game. How do I go about combining them in my situation?
  4. Sorry if I sound like an idiot but how do I do that? Thanks so much for the reply by the way
  5. I enabled Leaderboard charts and made an account and everything on my MAME cabinet. However, I now noticed I can no longer enable cheats in some games like the Mortal Kombat series. The cheats worked fine before this. I am assuming this is because we don't want cheaters to have high scores on the leaderboards. However, there are plenty of times where I am playing by myself or with a friend, and I would like to enable cheats. I thought the way LaunchBox handled it was I could choose if I wanted to enable cheats, but disable my score that session from the leaderboards. I don't see any way to do that. Can anyone lend me a pointer? Also, if you HAVE to disconnect from the leaderboards in order to use cheats again, is there any way to connect and disconnect in Big Box mode?
  6. So I have been using Big Box on my MAME cabinet for quite some time now. I decided to enable the ability to see the file name of the game being launched. In this example, it's umk3.zip which is Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. However, in my ROMs folder, I have 3 versions of UMK3. umk3.zip, umk3r10.zip , and umk3r11.zip Since I have all 3 revisions, I would like to know if there is a way in BigBox mode where I change which version of UMK3 I want to play. Sometimes different revisions have cool glitches and such which might be fun to play once in a while. If anyone knows any way to do this, please let me know!
  7. So this is the craziest thing ever. Despite having had this issue for months and trying everything under the sun (including a complete reinstall of Windows!!) to fix it, I finally figured it out. I had the "show now loading" screen unchecked. So when selecting a game, it didn't say "now loading game". This for whatever reason would allow Big Box to load infinite instances of MAME; as many times as you pressed OK/Enter before the game actually loaded. With the "now loading game" box up, Big Box does not allow this, and thus the glitch is gone. I guess I am one of the few people that turned that off, which is why no one was able to help me. What a hellish few months trying to figure this out. I bought new hard drives, installed obscure versions of Windows 10, and wasted countless hours over this issue and it was all over one little checkbox in Big Box about a loading screen. Oh well...I figured I would post the fix in case anyone in the future ever Googles this issue!
  8. I was able to mess around with my cabinet for a few hours today. I am able to confidently say the issue lies with Big Box. The issue is not there if I launch MAME with a command prompt. And the issue is not there if I launch with Launch Box. However, if I launch any game with Big Box, I have the issue. I tried a bunch of different themes within Big Box to make sure it wasn't my theme causing the issue, but they all exhibited the same thing. If I press the enter/OK button right after selecting the game, before the MAME dialog screen shows up, Big Box tries to load another instance of MAME which will cause the computer to screw up. Why Big Box does this and Launch Box doesn't, I have no idea. It must be the way Big Box is programmed. I know it's a short window, but I have small kids. Plus my instinct is I don't want to wait, so I press OK/enter twice quickly to skip the intro screen, so this happens to me all the time. I would really appreciate a fix for this because it's making the entire Launchbox program pretty unusable for me. Thanks in advance.
  9. This is still happening. If I press Enter/OK again too quickly after selecting the game, LaunchBox will attempt to open another instance of MAME.EXE for some reason. Does this happen to anyone else? It's really ruining my MAME cabinet for me
  10. You have to add LEDBlinky to the startup folder for it to load automatically. When I removed LEDBlinky, I also removed its entry in my startup folder.
