    We already support EA Play, EA Play games you get from Gamepass though cannot be imported, and there is nothing we can do about that. Those games do not appear in either EA's OR XBOX's API's, so if we can't see them we can't import them. One of those company's would have to change their backend API's for us to be able to do anything here.

    I tried importing Battlefield 2042 (purchased on EA Play). LB picks up the game on Origin but ends up with the wrong launcher file after import (installerdata.xml). Manually assigning the .exe opens the EA Play launcher but not the game.

    Games managed by Origin work flawlessly. Any idea?

    So it looks like I'm finding out that if you mark a game as Broken on a Playlist, it won't stay marked as that. I tried several times for Air Race on the Atari Classics playlist, and never stayed marked

    Not true. I just did so myself and it works as intended. Must be an isolated case.

    The 12.0 release has not caused any issues in this regard in our testing, so this sounds like an issue with your local collection. Make sure you haven't overridden the startup or pause screen settings on a game-specific level.

    Would you know what might be causing this? It's as though startup, shut-down and pause themes have all stopped working simultaneously.  Never had an issue prior.

    I'm restoring a back up image to hopefully fix it..

    I dont believe any of that code has been touched for these betas, have you checked to see if you accidentally turned those features off? You dont state where, but both Launchbox and Bigbox have separate settings for this.

    I checked both, neither works.

    In LB under Options I have them enabled, as is the case under Manage Emulators.

    We're still waiting on details on exactly what is happening, as we've never seen it or been able to replicate it. What video playback engine are you using when you experience the crashing? Does it happen with both video playback engines?

    Have only ever used VLC as not a fan of the alternative :)

    Cool, can you let me know if you still experience this at all in this release. If you are any details you could provide regarding what you were doing, what images got deleted, etc would really help.

    It is no longer happening in this release, thank you :)

    Previously what used to happen is an image getting deleted if I changed its category. Let's assume I changed what was categorized as 'gameplay screenshot' into 'background fanart'. Rather than reassigning the new category to the file in question it would disappear completely on pressing OK.

    Looking for input from everyone in regard to images not being saved (or deleted) when using the Add/Edit Game screen or the Download Metadata and Media tool. Also want to know if this beta helps those getting prolonged 404 session retry attempt.

    Tagging users who reported one of these issues:

    @OhBoy @vertigoelectric

    You can add me to the list of users having fanart deleted when using the Add/Edit Game screen.

  8. This one has me puzzled.

    I scraped Doom Eternal but every time I boot through LB it crashes the game on start-up. If I boot via Steam it works without issue.

    This is the only game exhibiting such behavior.

    Any ideas?

  9. I updated to Windows version 20H2 and can no longer open LB or BB. The start  up dialogue appears on screen but the application doesn't launch. I hadn't updated past LB 11.4 since I was without a GPU for a while.

    Any ideas?

    Hey all, the first 11.9 beta is out now with the following:

    • New Feature: LaunchBox can now easily import your Xbox and Microsoft Store games library; both installed and uninstalled games are supported and can be filtered in the wizard, though only games that have been started at least once can be imported (limitation of the Microsoft API)

    Do we get a neat little badge icon with that? :)

    Not able to test myself until later.

    Yeah it is easy enough to change the emulator path. Just do it in the >Tools>Manage Emulators and edit for each on affected.

    Where it can be a pain is if you are changing media path locations outside of the LB folder structure. Most do not mess with that, but just a heads up if you choose to.

    I dodged a bullet then since all images, videos, themes, etc. are stored inside LB's default folder structure. It's only the roms and emulators that have their own path (which means my setup isn't portable but that's another story).
