  1. Got PCSX2 working... sort of. First many thanks to @Sterophonick for the scripts. Could not have done it without those (and the explanation). Anyway, copy the following contents to a file and call it pcsx2.bat (or whatever) and put it in your Emulators section in LaunchBox: Change the "Emulation/PCSX2" of the script to the location of your PCSX2 binary, just make sure you run PCSX2 and set it up first. Now for the weirdness, for some reason it will not work with a double-click, but if you right click and select the .bat file it works fine. No idea why, as it does not do this for D
  2. Ah, that makes perfect sense. Thank you! Also works when I point to the path of the binary with Wine addressing (so, Z:\bin\dolphin-emu). Yay! Now to figure out PCSX2. Hmm.
  3. I am assuming I am doing something wrong, but I cannot run native Dolphin. So, I copied down the script as "Dolphin.bat" and saved to my Emulation folder, then added it to the Emulators section of LaunchBox as default. When launching it opens what appears to be Windows cmd and also a Linux popup with "Path not found" in it, which I have to close nine times: I looked over the posts and decided to place the GC games and Dolphin.bat file in the native LaunchBox directory, so that I could give it the relative path name (Emulation\Dolphin.bat) instead of the WIne to Linux nonsense (Z:bl
  4. I agree that most of the bugs you have observed are Wine based, though the bugged context menus are likely not. Though my only proof on that is when I installed an XFCE variant Manjaro distro it happened, while on my Manjaro Mate it does not. It also doesn't in Cinnamon, though that had it's own issues. The biggest plus side is that the vast majority of cores in RetroArch run like a dream in Wine, with little to no issues at all, and though it is slower than in Windows, Big Box also works rather well (even with themes). Believe it or not the largest issue we face now is installing
  5. @Sterophonick Well done! I need to try that script for native running. I run nearly all the emulators in Wine Retroarch, but PS2 just doesn't play ball, at least not to the level I want it to. I personally run a Manjaro Mate system, and can verify (for reasons I do not understand) that the bugged context menu isn't present on all desktop environments. On Manjaro it happens in XFCE (tested this on my old mGAme distro - RIP) and also on a couple Ubuntu-like distros (though I don't remember the desktops). I've also had issues with Cinnamon in both Manjaro and Mint, in that the LaunchBox
  6. Man, that is a lot of stuff. So just skipping down to the bottom Edit it sounds like you managed to get it installed again, but are seeing the rundll32 errors. If you see those errors to just cancel them out and it should run fine (though laggy). Part of the issue arises out of the fact that running the script you end up installing LaunchBox 11.5 (I think). If you can get version 11.7 it is noticeably faster, though still lagging behind Windows. However, there are no archives that I can see, so you might have to either PM Jason Carr or look around and find a copy yourself. 11.7 is quite a
  7. I just noticed something weird, and I either need to verify it with someone who is running an Ubuntu or Debian-based distro or try it tomorrow (I keep a laptop at work with Mint). I decided to install Manjaro Cinnamon on a new laptop today, and naturally ended up installing 11.7. I also tried updating to 11.9 just in case, but running the Wine shortcut/launcher that is created gave the exact same error we have been having. However, when running the .exe directly (instead of the Start Menu shortcut, which is the default) I ended up getting a very different message (in command line only)
  8. I'm more of an enthusiast and can use Linux semi-professionally, but as my Systems Designer says, with brute force methods instead of elegance. I actually tried forcing 32-bit with no success. For this I downloaded the specific 32-bit components (.NET Desktop Core 3.1.6, C++ 2015) and changed the script slightly to force the architecture. It did get to the LaunchBox installer, but prompts me to install .NET Core and C++ 2015. I should have just let it do this but I admit I got frustrated and quit for the night (I had been at it for about two hours). Kind of wish I had let it run all t
  9. Anyone tried the new update yet? I've tried briefly (with no luck) on a laptop I am hoping to buy (Manjaro Mate), but it was through upgrade. There is something funky in this Linux installation that makes BigBox crash, so I'll make sure to bring my Mint laptop home with me so I can do a proper fresh reload and upgrade of 11.9. Hope everyone's year is going okay so far. Super weird year so far (especially if you are in the USA; man if I see another Bernie meme I will snap lol).
  10. @Lordmonkus: Thank you so much for this! I had to get rid of my old MAME cab (with my old PC and old version of MAMEUI installed) and decided to start over. It was driving me nuts until I found this thread. Thank you so much!
  11. Well I didn't really mean a Linux native binary, rather a way to tell LaunchBox to pander to a Linux OS instead of Windows. For example, getting PCSX2 to use Linux directory separators for calling locating ROMS instead of Windows (like a checkbox in Emulator setup or something like that). Once again I am not a programmer or designer of any variety so I could be way off the mark (or worse, that functionality exists but I've not figured out how to use it yet), but would that at least fix some issues, at least in relation to emulator usage that Wine doesn't do well with (the afore mentioned PCS
  12. @Jason Carr Good to see you! I didn't think you would abandon this thread, though it is so quiet I guess I couldn't blame you. I am also pretty sad to see the response, though I think deep down nobody wants to really use Lutris or Retroarch proper to manage large game collections, Pegasus and GameHub just don't give enough control to the user, and Nostlan is just too green (and the title scrolling gives me a headache). I think if you build it they will come . If I could be allowed a small bit of criticism, I think the main issue is simply that it isn't a native solution. A lot of peopl
  13. I've got a post in the WineHQ forum with our Wine debug files, trying to get some help. It's a little slow right now, but hopefully we'll understand we can get some of the pros to help out. I really think that the issue is related to .NET (due to preamble to the debug that always shows up) but I lack the knowledge. Curious to see what the next update will bring, too. Not related, but I got LB Premium and am LOVING IT! In the past for a "BB" alternative I used Pegasus FE, which is a serviceable but ultimately maddening "Ten Foot" emulator frontend, which I never got working the way I w
  14. @Jason Carr Because we have verified it works (and works so well), would it be possible to have LB 11.7 available on the script in lieu of 11.5?
  15. No dice with installing the 11.8 exe directly. I don't know how to properly read the debugs of Wine, so I'm afraid I will be of little help as to why though. For fun I installed 11.8 on a fresh VM Windows 10 and while it does list the base requirements as the same (Core, VC2015) apparently if the software sees your VC installs lacking it will install the VC 2015-2019 package. I don't think that would affect anything, but who knows. EDIT (like a minute after posting): As an afterthought I am including the preamble info that you get if you start LB from command line: 002
