  1. So the Android version is a separate purchase? How much will it be for the Premium users?
  2. This has been a bug for a long time, and since it's still happening I'd like to report it as it gets really tiring. When you try to change "Box - Front" (to another category or simply delete it), I get "it is being used by another process" error when I click "OK". I have to close "Edit Game", open the edit window a few more times and attempt to do it again (sometimes even takes 10 tries) to get it through.
  3. I'm a huge digital pinball fan (the real ones are hard to maintain and move around). I'm actually glad the resources are being pulled for something more productive as well. Just adding to the discussion that I agree with the decision to move on. Really excited to see what will be on the next poll!
  4. I don't think there are furue-proof methods to automatically detect whether they need "-class" or not, but there is one way to do this: - The file name for real tables start with either "WMS_" (for Williams) and "BALLY_" (for Bally). However, this is just a naming they did and it can change, although it would be a good practice for them to not. They also acquired license for Stern so we may also get something like that maybe by the end of this year. To answer the other question, I use the Steam version. I own all tables. Since I don't own the Microsoft version, I wouldn't know too much about their file structure. I would have guessed they are the same, but the tables for the Steam version are located inside a folder literally named "steam":
  5. Pinball FX3's new physics is pretty amazing that was added exclusively for the real tables. Fourth volume pack also has experimental flipper physics and they are incredible. I suggest you try that out.
  6. I've been using Pinball FX3 and had created a separated platform for it. I had some issues initially with launch options simply not working from the LaunchBox, but it got magically fixed after a few updates. I haven't tested this in the recent version (v9.0+), but last time tested it, command-line parameters were not working properly for individual games. The Williams tables on Pinball FX3 pretty much need "-class" parameter to launch in classic mode while you don't want that in most of the game's original tables. Other than that, it's been working without a problem. For VP X, I just had to run the table.
  7. Yeah, and this came out early on Monday. Makes me think Jason worked even on the weekends... I hope he doesn't overwork himself. Such a great app that just keeps on giving.
  8. For platform videos in BigBox: - When you hover over a menu, video of a random game from that list normally plays, but it doesn't if it's an auto-populated playlist. - To make BigBox play a video, you must have a "Platform Equals" condition, but the video it plays is not from the playlist, but rather ANYTHING from the platform itself so it is not filtered.
  9. Loading screen for Steam games disappear too fast as soon as Steam's loading window closes to load the real game.
  10. Thanks. For me I had to use %romfile% for it to work. Not sure why. @Jason Carr Is there any way to hide a platform from big box platform list? I move some garbage bin PC games into a special, custom platform, but I'd like to hide them as it is much more to organize them in a separate platform than to have them hidden.
  11. Hm, it's only not working on LaunchBox at the moment. Could you look into this? "-applaunch 44210" is clearly working since Steam is launching the game, so I think "<File>" is maybe giving a wrong parameter? Is there any way for us to debug what command parameter is actually being sent when we click on the game?
  12. Hey, @Jason Carr Was there a change to command line parameter? This no longer works only on LaunchBox. Steam would run the game properly, but it doesn't seem like the last parameter "-table_<File>" is being passed on. If I type "steam.exe -applaunch 442120 -table_WMS_Medieval_Madness" on command prompt, it launches perfectly fine and goes directly to MM.
  13. Aw, that's sad, but I'm glad they are noted to be improved! Thanks for the response!
  14. Is there any way to add a new genre in bulk edit? Using bulk edit to change genre completely replaces all of selected games, but I just want to add one or two genres to them, without changing their original values.
  15. This has been happening for awhile so I don't know when it started, but sometimes when I add multiple games, media of some random games of the batch are not downloaded at all. It was tested under a condition where I would ping the download server in the background and dropped no connection issues. I'd have to select all the games that were added, and then download them again for it to work.
