    Best Performance

    Lets just say it like it is... I can afford it... What should I buy? As for what I like to emulate, is everything that is controllable with arcade sticks, arcade guns, trackball and spinners. If I need a gamepad with analogue sticks I do not need it. From what I can see, a Nvidia GTX 1060 would probably more than I need så anything better than that is just a waste of money. The GTX 960M in my current rig, does look like it's enough. But the CPU is the one getting maxed out. To me, it looks like the CPU is the bottleneck. What is the best CPU for Launchbox? There are to many CPU's to choose from, and I prefer buying the one that gives most performance for BigBox. All emulators I use, run fine, it's just BigBox that is laggy. Since my ROG-GR6 is not up gradable, I can start with a fresh build.

    Best Performance

    I have followed that guide But if I'm to build a new computer for my Arcade, I would like to know what will have the most effect. My library is at 50 000 now, but I'm not done adding all that I want, and yes I noticed the speed difference when adding the playlists. Since I love them, I'm willing to upgrade my rig... If it is the CPU, what cpu will give most performance? I guess this one is my culprit. If it is the RAM, how much and what speed? I think 16GB is overkill If it is the GPU, I dont think it's the GPU.... The CPU is up to 95% while starting BigBox but not constant. The CPU is at 100% for long periods after BigBox is started. (only in the GUI with video running, Unified Redux theme). What will be the best CPU for BigBox GUI?

    Best Performance

    Yes, please give us a recommended spec (specially for large database). I'm considering upgrading since I'm not satisfied with my setup now. It's a Asus ROG-GR6 wit 16GB ram, 256SSD for OS, 2TB SSHD for Launchbox and 10TB USB3.0 drive for Roms. It has a GTX-960M and i5-5200U. Boot is nice and fast, Launchbox & BigBox have loong start times, and if startup video in BigBox is enabeled the looooooong startup time gets added after the startup video so it looks SUPER laggy... It also lags when moving throug the systems and if categories enabeled it's slow and difficult to navigate. It's a big library, so that is the reason, but what is needed to get it to run faster? CPU, GPU, SSD, RAM?

    Large Library - Slow Performance

    I really liked the playlists, but they make Bigbox look buggy...

    Large Library - Slow Performance

    I deleted all startup videos, and now I get just a Big Box logo, with the same looooooooooooooooooooong pause then bigbox starts. It's still a bit slow to start the Arcade video. I then deleted all playlists from the playlist folder, and now I have the same looooooooooooooooooooong pause then bigbox starts. But the Arcade video starts instantly after that.

    Yes, I'm referring to startup time, and you are right subsequent startups are a bit faster, but not much. What bugs me is the extremely long time it takes from the startup video to the GUI. I would actually prefere if it tok a minute before the startup video started, instead of instant startup video then extremely long black silent pause. That pause, makes everything look unfinished.

    Large Library - Slow Performance

    Any news on this? My Launchbox has gotten extremely slow... When I lauch BigBox the startup video starts almost instantly, when it is done, there is a pause for litt over one minute, then the GUI starts. 49k games now, but I'm slowly moving my hyperspin setup I have been working on since 2014. So I will get more. The computer I use is this one: https://www.asus.com/Mini-PCs/ROG_GR6/ 16GB ram, 256GB SSD for OS, 2TB SSHD for Launchbox, 10TB USB3.0 drive for games. Hyperspin runs great on the same computer with a bigger library.

    If anyone wonders why I'm adding these names, it's because that's the name MADrigal's Simulators use for the .exe versions. I like these versions, because they have a nice background and integrated menu with info and manual. I'm using Xpadder to map my iPac gamepad to the korrect keys and run the exe with no emulator. With these names, the info should scrape correctly for anyone that would import these exe's

    Where do I download Launchbox.next?

    Already have it there, but if I press it, I have to close Launchbox first and wait for it to close before it works...
