  1. Holy crap, that is devastating. That’s my worst nightmare. There was a big storm here the other night so I turned the computer off and pulled the plug out from the wall. I know you’d do that in a storm anyway but I did it just with the games in mind as they are so precious to me. How did both of yours die?

    Just had a quickie!!

    Just add them as their own platform, during the adding process pick any emulator and then after they’ve been added uncheck the use emulator checkbox in the game options. That’s what I did anyway and it worked.
  3. I completely agree with that statement.

    Cabinet Controls Thoughts and Setup?

    My old arcade cabinet was 2 player and had two joysticks with 8 buttons each player, 2 light-guns, 2 spinners, 1 trackball and a keyboard/mouse. It all worked just fine but occasionally the PC would have a spaz-attack and something would need re-configuring. That is bound to happen with PCs, they have a mind of their own at time. I have seen FAR more complicated setups out there that seem to work. I think like everything though the more stuff there is the more chance there is something will go wrong. You just have to be prepared to fault find and fix when stuff decides to play up a bit but I am sure you can get it where it will run smoother than a babies buttocks.

    Redundancy???????

    I have two hard drives that are mirrored for my LB setup as well as two hard drives that are mirrored with my films, shows and music. I double everything because I have too much stuff to lose. It would be far too devastating to lose it all. So, if one of the hard drives for any given media I have fails I would immediately rush out and buy another to back it up again. If the crazy occurrence happens where both failed simultaneously then I'd just kill myself.

    Romfrosk's EmuHeaven

    I vote for it to be used as the official LB flash games platform background/video, haha.

    Romfrosk's EmuHeaven

    Yes indeed, I am sure every system's library of ROMs has been downloaded many many times by many people. I guess because these flash games, or at least all together in the one spot aren't all that easy to come across which is why a lot of people are showing interest. When people kept asking for them my brain just had that image of vultures circling around a corpse, waiting and wanting.

    Vultures are scavengers. Everyone wants these flash games and are hovering around just waiting to get their claws on them, haha.
  9. I have not gotten around to doing individual videos for my SEGA Game Gear 'platforms' so I just use the one @viking made for all of them. As for the logos, I added them here.

    Request: 'Show Hidden Games Only'

    This is much needed. When I first started LB I made a bunch of games hidden because they were missing artwork with the intent of making them visible again when artwork was implemented by either myself or an updated database. I did not know about the list view until now but it is not the easiest way of doing it.
  11. Haha, true. It is funny because out of my near 35k games I religiously play two of them and have about fifty in total that I cycle through. Though every once in a while I add one into the regular rotation or focus just on it solely. Games are like films, shows and music as there are far more I dislike than like. I am a self-confess data-hoarder but am trying to kick the habit, it is difficult.
  12. Yeah those kinds of game are pretty funny and amusing. I got the shits tonight and deleted the DS games from LB along with all the metadata and media. I deleted all the European and Japanese stuff (which I do not normally do) but with the DS there was just too much missing metadata and media. I renamed the U.S. stuff to be more tidy and will upload/add it again with better results, hopefully. Sometimes when things get too finicky I find it better to start again. That Chicken Shoot looks fun. Do you have any kind of lightgun or are you just using a controller or mouse? I would love all the Wii games. Only thing with the Wii though is I would have to wait until Retroarch gets better compatibility for it as I try to only use MAME and Retroarch for everything. I have 637 Gamecube games and they work pretty good through Retroarch, but not the Wii or WiiWare stuff (which I have 343 titles).
  13. Additional Nostalgia Platform Videos View File These are some platform videos I have made to fill gaps in my setup that had not previously been done. I use Viking's Nostalgia theme, so the videos are in that style. They might not be as great as Viking's quality work but they do the job. I like to split some of my systems up into different categories/platforms. As the SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive is my favorite system I have split it up into what you will find here.
