    Mame Tutorial for n00bs

    Thanks DOS76 but I finally found it! The lists are under the hash folder, no need to create them. 😱

    Mame Tutorial for n00bs

    I'm trying since hours to find how to generate the gamelist of mame (so I can find how they named the dreamcast CHD to download the right ones) and I can't seem to find any answer online! I know it's possible because I used to do it but I can't recall how and it's driving me mad. Does someone know what I'm talking about or am I already crazy?

    Mame blackscreen with Steam BigPicture

    I have the solution! Or rather Cammelspit gave me the answer and it's to set go in MAME.ini and change some settings: <keyboardprovider> and <mouseprovider> have to be set on <dinput> <joystickprovider> has to be set on <xinput>. A big thanks to him!
  4. I recently got a SteamLink so I'm checking if everything works fine with Launchbox (and it does so far!) and I have one problem with Mame. No matter if it's on the Link or directly on the computer, Mame shows a black screen and crashes back to BigBox if it's launched through Steam BigPicture. It works fine if launched directly or through normal steam (no BigPicture). Did anyone encounter this problem before and is capable to help me? Thank you!

    Recommendation Cores/Emulators

    Thank you for your answer neil9000. I had thought about this option because DEmul annoys me but I have quite a few WinCE games and don't really want to maintain two emulators... Why did you choose not to use Reicast libretro, if I may ask?

    Recommendation Cores/Emulators

    Hi guys, I'm wondering where we are now in term of the dreamcast emulation fight? Between reicast libretro, DEmul and Redream, I can't decide. Anyone of you made some tests and came to a conclusion to this question?

    Big Logo - Startup Theme

    Very clean startup theme, exactly what I was looking for. Thanks a lot! 😎
  9. Thank you neil9000!
  10. It works! Thanks a lot guys. Now when I use Launchbox and I select a game, I also see the background. I prefer when the background stay neutral while browsing my games, is it possible to only disable backgrounds here and keep it for the game startup and shutdown?
  11. Hi there, It seems that no matter which game I launch, I get a black background on startup and shutdown screens. Does anyone know what I did wrong? Thank you!

    Using relative paths for Launchbox and emulators

    That's it, the problem is mostly with the emus themselves. I guess I'll just follow your advice DOS76, just always use the same drive letter.
  13. Hi there, I just moved my launchbox folder and now both launchbox and some of my emulators (I have cemu, demul, dolphin, mame, mupen64plus, pcsx2 and retroarch) are having problems which I'm pretty sure are connected with the change in path. Is there a way to make everything totally portable with some relative paths and how to set it? Thanks a lot!

    Hi there, first of all, thanks a lot for this theme! I really love the Game View, sadly the Platform View doesn't work for me because I use the Platform Categories View and it looks odd. Could you maybe add a very simple and clean Platform Categories View like the one in the fundamental dark theme? It would be the best of both worlds! Thank you anyway. ☺️
