    MAME ROM filtering

    No problem. I was just wonderig why it doesn’t work. Soi used ROMLISTER to make my vertical Rom collection. Unfortunately there are still a few horizontal games inside. I normaly use Big Box. Is there an option in BigBox to delete a game out of the list or delete the ROM completely?

    MAME ROM filtering

    In that folder ( Launchbox\Data\Platforms ) was an Arcade.xml. First i just copied the " MAME-vertical games.xml " into that folder and started Launchbox. That had no effect and so horizontal games were still visible. Then i closed Launchbox, deleted the Arcade.xml file and renamed the "MAME-vertical games.xml" to Arcade.xml. Started Launchbox again and still the horizontal games were visible. After Leaving Launchbox the Arcade.xml had the same size as the origin one which i deleted. So it seems that Launchbox creates a new one again.

    MAME ROM filtering

    Thanks for your help. Sorry for the supid question, but what do i do with that XML? I always made a batch file with ROMLISTER so it copies f.e. all the vertical ROMS to a specific folder. Problem is, that it copies too less ROMS to that folder. My selection looks like this before i create the bacth file.

    MAME ROM filtering

    Does anybody know if such a filter for horizontal/ vertical MAME games come when importing the ROMs to launchbox? If yes i don't have to play around with ROMLISTER which misses a lot of ROMs when i create batch files.
  7. Hi I use a Egret 3 candy cabinet in combination with Big Box and retroarch/groovymame. It should be possible to run games with retroarch in the native resolution as groovy mame does for MAME games. So i followed the FAQ guide, but don't get any picture as soon as i start a game with Big Box. I manualy added the modelines to my super resolution setup. The ones which are listed in the FAQ: https://forums.libretro.com/t/15-khz-crt-documentation-wiki/15671/4. Set the CRT Switch active in retroarch and started a game with BigBox. I hear a switching noise from my chassis (15kHz,24kHz,31kHz) and then my screen goes black. The games run well if i connnect a LCD with the CRT Switch OFF. I saw a similar thread a few days ago about this topic but can't find it anymore 😪-

    MAME ROM filtering

    Hi I'm using a vertical Arcade cabinet and for this reason i would like to have just the vertical MAME games on this machine. Is there a filtering method in Launchbox to filter just the vertical games? Thanks
  9. Hi Does anybody know a program which maps a keyboard to a Xbox or PS joypad? I’m using Launchbox/Bigbox on my arcade cabinet. Buttons of my arcade cabinet are comming as keyboard keys (J-Pac). I would like to navigate in Bigbox (select a game, enter a game, leave a game) with my arcade stick and buttons. But if i would define 2 buttons as ENTER and ESC to enter and leave a game i can’t use them in my MAME emulator because if i press the ESC button it would leave the emulator.

    Official Vertical Theme?

    even in vertical mode on a CRT? Problem is i can't even select a theme after i downloaded the theme and unziped it in the ..\theme\ folder. They don't show up in the Big Box theme selection menu.

    Official Vertical Theme?

    +1 i would also love an offical vertical theme and also official low res themes. There must be plenty of users wanna run big box on their low res arcade cabinets.
