    great collection of high quality marquees. Thanks for sharing
  1. I decided to try rolling back to version 11.9 and everything is working fine again. No errors are being generated by ledblinky anymore. One key difference between 11.9 and 11.15 is in 11.9 i would hear a sound in bigbox for every game I passed while scrolling through the game list regardless if I was holding the joystick down/up or pressing down/up individually. In 11.15 i do not hear a sound when holding down the joystick and scrolling through the games list, instead I would only hear a sound when advancing to the next game in the list when moving slowly a single key at a time.
  2. Attached is a screenshot of my settings. I only have "enable ledblinky" checked. I have never enabled any of the other options. Thanks
  3. No, i am not using "Demo Game Controls" The only option i have checked under the launchbox tab is "Light launchbox controls". I was able to repeat the IO error by just holding down the joystick and letting it scroll through the games list for a minute in Bigbox and when exiting out of Bigbox I found this error had popped up multiple times: Along with an error log snipit from ledblinky: [08/28/2021 16:32:12] Timeout waiting for Primary Instance Handle.

  4. Scrolling through my list of games by holding the joystick down just slows it down to a crawl in bigbox 11.15 with Ledblinky integration turned on. This happens in all the themes I have tried in bigbox and it is specific to versions newer than 11.9. I also turned on the debug log in ledblinky and noticed that every game i scroll through is getting logged as game selected even when i am not selecting the game to play (see snipit from debug.log below). I never noticed ledblinky debug files selecting every game as I scroll through the games list in previous versions of bigbox but maybe I am wrong.

  5. Hello Recently I upgraded Bigbox from version 11.9 to version 11.15 and noticed I started getting IO errors associated with LEDblinky and severe performance problems when scrolling quickly through my list of arcade games in bigbox. I then upgraded ledblinky to the lastest version on the website which helped with the IO errors (did not get rid of them completely) but I was still having performance problems when scrolling through my list of games. After a bit of investigation I tried turning off ledblinky integration in Bigbox/launchbox and now scrolling through my games list is as smooth when I was on launchbox version 11.9. As soon as I reenable LEdblinky the performance problems with scrolling through my list of games in bigbox returns. Does anybody else see this performance hit when LEDblinky is enabled in Bigbox? Please note this happens with both the default theme and unified refried theme. I also do not have the games detail page enabled. System specs: I7 9700K, 32GB of ram, RX 580 graphics card, 1TB 970 EVO NVME, Windows 10
  6. upgrading to 11.15 seems to have sorted my additional apps issues. Thanks
  7. Thanks, This launcher works much better than FreeCamMOD. I was able to at least run the game in fullscreen exclusive mode which makes launching tables much more reliable. freeCamMod you must run in windowed fullscreen mode which is way more problematic.
  8. I am currently running launchbox version 11.9 but after upgrading from version 10.xx some time ago I noticed that if I make a manual edit to a games existing "additional apps" or make a new "additional app" they sometimes stop working or do not work at all. Long story short, if I have a games "additional app" pointing to launch a windows shortcut for an exe or bat file, it seems launchbox version 11.9 will not always reliably launch it. This was not a problem in launchbox version 10.xx and you could reliably launch a games "additional app" using a shortcut to a exe or bat file. If I launch an "additional app" pointing directly to the EXE or batch file then it seems to work properly in version 11.9 Has anybody else noticed this issue or knows of a workaround?
  9. I have single table launch working in launchbox using FreeCamMod but when using Bigbox most times the game gets minimized to the task bar and even alt tab will not bring the window into focus. Does anybody have a script to bring the pinball Arcade into focus when using Bigbox? I am not using any startup screens and still have the same problem.
  10. When I setup the m2 emulator I disabled my second monitor before starting the game for the first time and then did the in game gun calibration. After you finish the in game gun calibration save it and exit out of the game. Then you can reenable the second monitor and try running it from launchbox/bigbox. You also need to make sure you are not running in windowed mode for the model 2 emulator. **make sure the video aspect ratio is the same across all your emulators or you will need to recalibrate the aimtrak each time you switch between aspect ratios. This is what my model 2 settings look like under emulator.ini SoftwareVertexProcessing=0 Wireframe=0 FakeGouraud=0 Bilinear=1 Trilinear=0 FilterTilemaps=0 ForceManaged=0 ForceSync=1 FullScreenWidth=1280 FullScreenHeight=960 AutoMip=0 MeshTransparency=0 DrawCross=0 GammaR=1.0 GammaG=1.0 GammaB=1.0 WideScreenWindow=0 FSAA=0 ;These options are configured from menus so don't touch FullMode=4 Sound=1 Frameskip=-1 AutoFull=1 Filter=935
  11. For disabling the marquee monitor using display fusion you will need create two batch files and add them to additional apps for each game that applies First thing you need to do is open display fusion monitor configuration and create two new profiles. On the first profile with everything at defaults and both monitors enabled save the profile name as "monitors enabled", then disable your marquee monitor using display fusion and create a second profile named "monitors disabled" for the first batch file add the following: DisplayFusionCommand.exe -windowpositionprofilesave "gungame" DisplayFusionCommand.exe -monitorloadprofile "monitors disabled" Save this as a batch file in the display fusion installation folder and add as an additional app to the game with options check "automatically run before main application", and "wait for exit" for the second batch file add the following: DisplayFusionCommand.exe -monitorloadprofile "monitors enabled" DisplayFusionCommand.exe -windowpositionprofileload "gungame" Save this as a batch file in the display fusion installation folder and add as an additional app to the game with option check "automatically run after main application. **you may get prompted from display fusion when the game starts/exits. If this happens you can disable this prompt in the advanced options in display fusion. 1 Disable Overwirte confirmation prompt under (window position profiles) 2 Dont show confirmation prompt under (monitor configuration) 3 disable prompt when restoring settings (general)
  12. Look for an exe on the rocketlauncher forums called HotD_3_Autostart.zip. This will automatically click ok on the splashscreen during startup and get you right into the game. I used this and it works great.
  13. Just wondering if you have found any games that do not work using Keyboard2Xinput? I have been using UCR for a couple years but i have found it to not work sometimes, or some games will work at launch but then have issues during gameplay! This program looks like a much better solution then UCR and Vjoy Anyways this is the list of PC games i have on my arcade cabinet minus the ones you already listed above using either keyboard mapping in game, UCR, or X360ce. Bionic command Rearmed (keyboard mapping 1 player) BluzBlue Centralfiction (UCR 2 player) Castle Crashers (UCR 2player) Crazy Taxi 3 (keyboard mapping 1 player) Crimzon Clover World Ignition (keyboard mapping 2 player coop) DariusBurst Chronical saviours (UCR 2 player coop) Duck Game (keyboard mapping 2 player) Fight N Rage (keyboard mapping 2 player) Guns Gore & Cannoli (keybaord mapping 2 player) Horizon Chase Turbo (2 player IPAC buttom remap on startup) House of the Dead 3 (Dual lightguns using demulshooter 2player) Killer Instinct (2 player IPAC button remap on startup) Mortal Kombat X (UCR 2 player) Nidhogg (keyboard mapping 2 player) Outrun 2006 Coast to Coast (keyboard mapping 1 player) pac man 256 (2 player IPAC button remap on statup) race the sun (keyboard mapping 1 player) Rayman Origins (keyboard mapping 2 player) Refender (keyboard mapping 1 player) Road Rash (keyboard mapping 1 player) skullgirls 2nd encore (UCR 2 player) street fighter V (UCR and x360ce 2 player) The TakeOver (IPAC reconfigure and UCR 2player) Tekken 7 (IPAC reconfigure and UCR 2 player) Tiger Woods PGA Tour 08 (trackball and AHK script 2+ player)
  14. I am upgrading my launchbox windows PC to a new build and wanted to know the best way to move launchbox 11.2 onto a new PC? I was thinking I would install the same version of launchbox on the target PC and just copy the entire launchbox folder over to the new PC. All my emulators, games, and roms (not in the launchbox folder) were copied exactly the same onto the new computer maintaining the same file paths. Does anybody with experience see any issues with this? I want to make sure all my custom themes, settings, images, etc are maintained exactly the way i have it setup on the old PC. Thanks
