  1. I recognize you're going for a true NESICA reproduction, but for the record I do like the ability to go in any direction... making it a theme option would be a great value.
  2. it was just an example. What I mean is people have their own sets and might have say, a best of, for a givne platform. Even if that ini file existed, their set wouldn't conform to that anyway.
  3. All good. I think the partial set import could be something to consider but I don't know how in-demand that is. I assume it would be popular since so many don't want to import educational stuff. Anyway, thanks for the response.
  4. I hear you, but the full set importer will still filter out those same games. What is needed is a checkbox to disable ALL filters because clearly there are filters being applied even when you tell Launchbox to import all clones, import all duplicates and skip nothing. I guess what I'm getting at is that the full set importer should continue working as is but when the user is manually importing the roms themselves, they should be granted the right to import exactly what they chose to import using the emulator they want to specify. The fact that the import wizard is still restricting the im
  5. I realize everything you mentioned but here's the point: I want them anyway. If they aren't working today, I want them there in my list, where I can hide them, so that they will be there in my list when they do work. Not actually true. Some of the new games are working, full games but in less than perfect quality. That doesn't mean they aren't playable. That's my point. I AM telling Launchbox to import EVERYTHING, skip NOTHING and I am trying to override the settings and yet it still filters out what it considers non valid. I want to make that full and complete choice, myself.
  6. Long time no speak! I know updating software lists wasn't in the cards originally, but I was wondering if you had put any thought into version 4? I just tried importing an update folder (contains only new roms) and the plugin keeps importing the entire platform. Say i want to import fmtowns_flop update folder (contains 8 files), the plugin imports 130 "files". I was thinking that the plugin could scan the source folder for the roms present (strip the path and file extension, retaining only the name), and then on the import loop compare the rom name from the hash to the "present
  7. @Jason Carr I'm not sure what it is that I'm doing wrong here. My understanding is that 11.9 is Mame version agnostic and includes the 227 xml files. I am trying to import the 227 update roms to a Temp platform. There are 168 files that I drag and drop into Launchbox for import. I tell it to scan as Arcade with MAME as the emulator. Import all duplicates, etc.... I want to import all 168 files. Yet the above is all Launchbox is recognizing. Even if I try to import as none of the above instead of roms, it is only recognizing the same set of games. It will only import all the f
  8. In 11.9 when changing a game's platform and opting to migrate media files, manuals don't get migrated. I have to manually go into the manuals folder and cut/paste the manuals.
  9. Upon further testing, deleting the emulator from the Managre Emulators window works. The issue was happening because I was trying to delete the emulator from the edit games window.
  10. Deleting emulators doesn't seem to work? I can delete them in Launchbox but on restart, they reappear...
  11. For both it's set to FM Towns Marty
  12. Nope. When the update window glitch happened, I was editing a game inside the FM Towns platform. I spent most of the day creating clear logos for the platform so I only ever was pressing F5 to refresh the window every once in a while. When the glitch happened, I force quit, reopened launchbox and applied the update. Once the update was done, the platform image folders were all reassigned to FM Towns CD. I never went into the edit platform window except the fix the issue after you mentioned it.
  13. They were supposed to be /Images/FM Towns and were changed to Images/FM Towns CD. All of the folders switched to the the FM Towns CD path, except videos for some reason. I do have a separate FM Towns CD platform. The paths in that folder remained correct.
  14. You were right. But I never went into that screen... glad to know its not irreparable though!
  15. Hold up... this seems to only be happening in this one platform... I wonder why. Might have something to do with the update issue I mentioned earlier? I was editing in this platform at the time. I'm thinking having to force quit might have corrupted something... Importing a backup doesn't resolve the problem though.
  16. HUGE BUG After updating to 11.9 Launchbox thinks that all my games have 0 images. However, the images in the launchbox folders are still there. You don't immediately notice but go into the edit window in the images section and it shows 0/0 or press F5 and the images disappear. When adding new images, Launchbox isn't recognizing those either.
  17. Found a glitch on update window... I opened Launchbox, selected a game and opened the edit window. Then went into additional apps and clicked to edit an app. That's when the popup to ask if I wanted to install the update appeared. Rather than click Yes or No or close the popup, I wanted to finish what I was doing in the additional app-edit application window and then install the update, so I simply clicked on the additional app-edit application window. I was able to edit the application command-line parameters as I intended to do but then none of the buttons was responsive.
  18. Would this help? https://github.com/libretro/mame2003-libretro/pull/348 I don't really use retroarch so I can't say for sure but I hope it leads to something useful.
  19. This guide is wonderful but I did have aa couple issues. 1) I had to change the unmount script by launcherbox to --remove_all. Other might want to try that if they have issues with that. 2) the -F0 "full path to user disk" doesn't work. I always have to go into the menus in Unz to insert the user disk manually. Does anyone know what the correct commandline for this is?
  20. Yeah, just select the specific games and tools->download media
  21. While the topic is fresh, a deselect all button would be SUPER appreciated on this screen.
  22. I am crying with joy. Thank you!
  23. I'm trying to get an IBM 5170 game to launch through launchbox but am having issues. The game requires a harddisk, flop1 and flop2. I can do this with no issue in IBM 5150 with the following commandline: ibm5150 -skip_gameinfo -harddisk1 "F:\Launchbox\Emulators\MAME\ibm5150hd.chd" -flop1 "F:\Launchbox\Emulators\MAME\software\ibm5150\msdos33.zip" -flop2 However, the same commandline in 5170 doesn't work: ibm5170 -skip_gameinfo -harddisk1 "F:\Launchbox\Emulators\MAME\ibm5150hd.chd" -flop1 "F:\Launchbox\Emulators\MAME\software\ibm5170\msdos33s.zip" -flop2 The
