  1. Are you talking about getting rid of your background image? Tools -> Options -> Imaged -> background?
  2. There is also badge code in a new button section in MainView.xaml. Also the encoding changed. All my old themes are UTF-8. The new themes are UTF-8 BOM.
  3. What is involved in taking an LB theme and enabling the badges? Is it all in the XML files in the "views" folder or are the DLLs changed? I can see buttons added to the BoxesContentView and MainView so far. If it's just a matter of doing a compare in Git or Notepad++ if there aren't a ton of them and merging the changes, I'll do that so I don't mess up all the custom changes I made to my theme.
  4. Is that what became "badges"?
  5. First, is there an indicator yet (like the multiple sheet of paper icon or curled page corner) to indicate when games are grouped together so you know it isn't just one game? Is there any performance hit to be aware of with this version for older machines, especially the badges?
  6. When will the next poll be? And I assume it will have a live chat to join as in the past? It will be interesting to see what might be added in 2020!
  7. It took me quite a while to get 11.1 working. It kept hanging on the install screen for Framework 4.8. One time, it gave an error that it couldn't close some launchbox screens, but it took several minutes for that screen to come up. After terminating processes, rebooting, etc. It finally worked on the 4th or 5th try.
  8. Ok, thanks for the education. Guess we'll see what happens.
  9. Please help me understand anyone wanting a focus on Android. Certainly not for phones, correct? I imagine you could run games 90s and before on a phone and maybe if you are bored, that tiny screen is something you could use in a doctor's waiting room. And if you had an Android tablet, with an unusual amount of power, maybe you could emulate more games. But I too am disappointed that Windows is taking a back seat. It would be interesting to see how many people have cabinets/bartops, PCs (where even a 10 year old one is more powerful than a phone), vs. Android devices. Maybe I am wrong and need to be educated as to benefits I am missing.
  10. Unfortunately, I am removing you from my Christmas Card list
  11. @Jason Carr Good web meeting today. I think there was some confusion on a poll item. There are two separate issues: 1. A list of "like" games on the individual game screens for matching games on other platforms. So if you click on space invaders in BB or LB you could see a list of other versions you could play instead like Atari, XBox, etc. 2. An icon on each game box in LB (perhaps a multi document image) to show that you right clicked and grouped games together. So if you grouped all the arcade versions of "Metal Slug" together, you wouldn't think you had just one game, you would know you could expand that back out or right click and play Metal Slug X instead of Metal Slug 2. Or maybe a better example is if you have the Japanese version and US version of the same game, you would group them and have a visual indicator to show this is a group.
  12. Hit cntrl-alt-escape to run task manager and see if apps are remaining open. How many browser instances are there, etc. See if it CPU, memory or disk causing a spike
  13. Make sure retroarch is set to use fullscreen mode. Also make sure it is set for each emulator. See here: Pause screen not working in RetroArxh
  14. Well first, Those are not MAME roms. MAME roms are for arcade machines. Those are NES roms (Nintendo Entertainment System) you can rename the platform or just start over. In settings select "allow deleting roms when deleting games" then go into your platform and hit cntrl-a. Then del. When it asks, check the box to delete the roms too. But you may just want to leave the NES roms, import them in the NES platform and then use the MAME importer to import your MAME roms from your MAME roms download.
  15. Use Alt-TAB to see what windows are active. Will that work with BigBox? I am convinced the window switching gets confused and that we can find a pattern. If I use cntrl-alt-esc and terminate the emulator I regain control. Sometimes the game is still playing. You can hear it then see it in the preview window.
