  1. I realize this is and older post but just figured that I would point out how to get this perfectly working in MAME/MESS now. Import and setup the emulator path to point to lynx48k -cass (I think older versions might have been complynx or something which is why some people might have an issue). Im using software lists and that works perfectly now. To get it auto loading, just create a file in MAME/Ini folder and name it lynx48k.ini and paste this inside: # # SCRIPTING OPTIONS autoboot_command "mload""\n" autoboot_delay 3 autoboot_script Works perfectly fo
  2. When I first read this post, that seemed like an insane idea. Started to think about it,, that would actually be pretty cool! Seems to me like it would be more suitable as a plugin though as it would really take away from the core launchbox goal of simplicity and add slightly more un mandatory bloat. Maybe we can just set it up so that it will just send the food request to my wife's phone and tell her to make it for me!! She would love it!! 🤣 Anwyay, I have gotten pretty good at photo shop and stuff lately but have not idea where to begin with coding anything, anyone up for it?
  3. What a great theme! You define My default for now. A made one tiny minor change though that some US guys might find useful. To change the time in the platform views (mainly 3 and 4) to AM/PM style... Or the xml in Themes/Millennium/Views and search for <Binding Path."CurrentTime"/> In the line right below change HH:mm to hh:mm and save. You can really put in any date and time format you want here. Check out this for the date formats and things, https://www.w3.org/TR/NOTE-datetime. That was the only tweak I made, loving this theme. The game views are absolutely beautiful.
  4. Yup, as long as everything is in the correct folders inside the launchbox directory and you haven't played around with the file paths in the settings you can move it anywhere you like. No need to keep the same drive letter. The whole thing should be completely portable. I moved it between a few external drives a few times. As an additional tip, if you need to move games around, you can also easily do that by selecting all the games in a system in launchbox and the move directory item in the tools menu.
  5. Launchbox is portable. Just copy the entire install directory to wherever you want it. I also just store my roms, emulators and everything else inside the same folder. You can then just copy the entire directory to a different drive or anywhere else.
  6. Just to add on to Retro808s response, to find out what the correct parameters to use in MAME are, either look in the hash directory for that romset xml or (this is what I use) go to progettoemma.net. From there just search for anything and then expand media switches. It will give you the romset name and the parameter to put into LaunchBox.
  7. RocketLauncher Transparent Fullscreen Bezel View File So, I just threw this together quick and like it so figured someone else might find it useful. It's essentially just a simple full screen bezel with TV like frame. Basically if you try to use no bezel on full screen like roms or programs (I use it for magazines, books, videos and maybe PC games etc), You usually dont get the same experience as the rest of your roms. It may jerk around before loading and even when it loads you may have an issue with getting it full screen etc. Well this might fix th

  9. "None System" Device Banners View File I uploaded a similar set a while ago but figured I would start a new topic since I changed them around quite a bit! I personally use the device logos as my banner for my collection. All well and good but what about the games that really don't have a "device"? This is my set of custom device banners for PC game categories and older game categories that apply to many different systems. If you where using my old pack, I removed the background now so that they are transparent, added many more banners and als

This is my set of custom device banners for PC game categories and older game categories that apply to many different systems. If you where using my old pack, I removed the background now so that they are transparent, added many more banners and also created a template for older type computers. I included both psd files with the zip.
  11. Thanks for this, when I get home tonight Im going to try and switch a few to this method and see if it that works better.
  12. Hey guys! I was just typing something in another forum about my collection and realized that (I don't think) anyone ever posted about how it is quite easy to launch directly into a VirtualBox system from a "game" on Launchbox. Forgive me if it does exist but I did a quick search and didn't find anything. I figured this out a while ago because I have a category in my systems named "Operating Systems" that launch directly into the Virtual Machines from LaunchBox. If it's already been discussed than a mod can just delete this. First just setup VirtualBox and make sure that the system that yo
  13. I actually have hundreds more that I have created somewhat recently. I have just been making them as I go for systems that I cant find another logo for. Im going to update this pack in a few days when I finish the rest of what I have. I had also made alot for different system boards and comic books and magazines that I have in my collection. Just made to many to upload 1 by 1.
  14. Not to sure if it's actually needed or not. I'm sure it will work without admin one way or the the other. Just was a minor issue that I ran into after I wrote that so figured I'll add it on. To me it doesn't really seem why it would be needed. I'll play around some more tonight. That really wasn't my point of the guide though lol.
  15. Hey everyone! I just figured out an extremely easy way to launch Pinball Arcade game directly to the table that I have not seen anywhere else on the forums. Most posts refer to the old camera mod thing that never really worked for me and was kind of an annoying work around so I found another one that is much simpler, to the point and just works. I figured that I would make this into a bit of a Pinball Arcade guide to help out noobs as well. So here I go. 1) Download the launcher attached to this post and extract it into the Pinball Arcade install directory. Quick disclaimer: I did not cre
