  1. This is just a heads-up that in recent versions of PCSX2 chd support was added. For me converting iso's and bin/cue's to chd yields a size reduction from anywhere between ~30% to ~60% compared to the original files. The conversion is lossless and reversible. As chd's use streaming decompression (the data requested by the emulator is decompressed on the fly), no decompression before starting a game is needed like with .zip or .7z. Although PCSX2 already supported other compression formats like .cso (lossy compression) and .gz, chd's don't require the creation of an indexing file upon first boot
  2. Hi all, I'm trying to get flycast running through launchbox for Dreamcast games, but I'm really struggling with this at the moment and could use a few tips and pointers. I'm using CHD's for the games and they work without a hitch in retroarch on their own. The collection of games has been imported into Launchbox successfully with all the cover art and details etc. I've associated the flycast core with the Dreamcast section, but when I try to run any of the games, nothing happens, it doesn't even load retroarch at all. I have all the correct bios's in place, so it must be something to
  3. Brand new to this! I just cleaned up a spare laptop and downloaded MAME along with LaunchBox. I downloaded a few games like Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct (along with associated chd files) from the Internet Archive. The games work in MAME and show in Launchbox which is great. I'd like to download what I believe is called a "ROM set" where there are thousands of arcade games and not just download one at a time like I did. I've searched and read a lot, but I can't seem to find a place to actually download something like this. Can someoone point me in the right direction? I a
  4. I'm having an odd issue with Launchbox. In general had no problems but this specific game (Chaos Heat) will not work in Launchbox no matter what. It works without a problem in MAME when the application is used directly, but when the CHD (this is a CHD-only game) is imported to Launchbox, a couple of key things go wrong. First, the metadata does not get properly configured. The game is in LaunchBoxDB, but it is not recognized as a valid game and the name does not even set properly (screenshots below). I can manually go in and set the name and import the metadata after the fact, but this does no
  5. Full sets take up a lot of space. I have that space, but that doesn't mean I want to use any more than I have to. Additionally, importing folders full of bin/cue/wav/etc for certain disc rips is messy. In a perfect world, every game would be compressed and stored in a single file. It seems most systems have at least one option, but with so many emulators and so many compression formats, it's been tricky figuring out what that option is. So far I've determined the following system - emulator - compression combos: PSP - PPSSPP - CSO Playstation 1 - Beetle PSX - CHD
  6. Hi all, I have gathered a full set of US PSX games plus not a few PAL ones as well so my aim here is to save some space. After weeks of playing around and reading I have come up with different ways of combining games with multiple bins (normally audio tracks) into one, which is pretty straightforward to be honest. After this I tend to convert them into PBP files but since it is painfully taking a lifetime to convert every single game one by one I am seriously considering batch converting them to CHD. (I was using ePSXe first and now RA Mednafen HW). Everything is OK until this point
  7. I am not a Noob really, but a Noob when it comes to CHD files. I keep my CHD's separate from my ROM's. I have a full set of .182 of both. I have watched the tutorials, and searched these forums. 1. Does every CHD have a corresponding ROM? 2. How do I add the CHD's to LaunchBox? When I point the importer to the location with all of the CHD's it doesn't seem to get all of the entries. I must be doing it wrong. Thanks for any help
  8. I am having trouble running mame games like Killer Instinct , the mortal kombat serie , Street fighter 3rd strike , sunset riders , all games with chd actually , I have the chd and the rom files because they run perfect outside launchbox . And as far as i know , i correctly entered the rom path. Any suggestions because i have been struggling for over three days now.
