  1. Hi @Gimpy I am VERY interested in your solution. I'm in a similar situation where I need to launch explorer after launching my custom winlogon shell script which starts up big box. I need explorer since I am utilizing Spotify in my build (long story) this is achievable but It's stealing focus as you mentioned. Would you mind posting your bat file?
  2. @Equation & @Eddieh1979 I’ve been having this same issue (happens about half the time) what were your fixes if any?
  3. Yes I was looking for this feature as well. I can put my menu button on my cabinet to use to launch the options page while in Big Box. I'll give it a vote!
  4. Actually the problem isn’t as big as I expected. So I think this point is moot. The Simpsons and a few others start with the four player ROM.
  5. Hello, I couldn't find an answer to this on the forums. Is there a way for me to prioritize 4 player versions of MAME ROMS similar to how I prioritize USA ROMS within Launchbox? An example: by default Launchbox wanted to load a two player version of TMNT, so I had to edit the entry to make the four player version the default version. Now I guess I could go into each game one by one to do the same for all the other 4 player games but I was wondering if there is an easier solution. Keep up the great work Launchbox dev team!
  6. Thanks for the list @kidshoalin Also if you would also like the auto-generate playlist based on controls feature, someone made a feature request for it. I voted for it and recommend you and anyone else who would like to auto-generate playlists for controls vote for it too! https://bitbucket.org/jasondavidcarr/launchbox/issues/2980/game-data-base-game-controller-statistics
  7. I noticed the LaunchBox games DB doesn’t seem to have a section for specialized controls, e.g. Spinner, trackball, light gun, etc. If these fields were available and accessible by LaunchBox, we could generate auto-populating playlists, Spinner games, trackball games etc. Maybe an idea for the next round of features request @Jason Carr?
  8. Excellent news! Can’t wait! I can definitely test in the beta when introduced.
  9. Hello Launchbox team! What are the chances of this feature coming into a near future release? " Add Alternate Names, Game Type, Max Players, Wikipedia Link, and Video Link fields from the LaunchBox Games Database to LaunchBox " as it seemed to win 8th place according to this tally by @Jason Carr I'm particular interested in having the app incorporate the "Max Players" and the "Cooperative" fields so I can auto-populate my playlists for console 2 player and 4 player games. This feature would be very useful to me and from what I'm finding on the forums for a lot of others too and hopefully it wouldn't be too difficult to implement.
  10. @LogicalEgo Any updates on the random background videos? This would be a killer feature to mix-things up!
  11. 2560 x 1440 , not sure how to find my DPI setting. Thanks again!
  12. Hello Mr. Retrolust! I'm loving your theme! Just a few questions: 1. What clear logos are you using? They look great! 2. The vertical_view_4 is not showing the marquee for me or is this by design? 3. For some reason the resolution of my options page is off, how could I fix that? 3. I'm loving the two different CRT TVs you have in the horizontal views, any plans to do vertical versions of these? Keep up the great work! Best Regards, Richard
  13. @Jason Carr and @TheNewClassics I am happy to report that with 10.11-beta-7 North America region now prioritizes USA ROMS over Hispanic ROMS! All I had to do was re-import my romset. For the record I tested this with Marvel VS Capcom and with Darkstalkers in my full MAME .0219 split romset.
  14. I would love to test this, since this was affecting me as well. When the beta is released how can I get it @Jason Carr ?
  15. Hello LEDBlinky users, I noticed in the colors.ini file there are many entries for the color "black" . I saw this in the version 7 pdf doc, I'm not in front of my arcade this very moment so I'll check the file when I get home. But my question is how can I substitute the color black? And what colors are people supstituting it with?
  16. Can you elaborate exactly how you used RetroArch in place of Mame here? I’d really like to go down this path if possible.
