  1. Hey, I was just wondering if there will be any other premium giveaways in the future because even if I decided to buy premium, I can't, simply because I don't have a credit card. Thanks in advance for any reply!
  2. Hi there, Launchbox has been running flawlessly for me until I deleted my arcade complete set platform to replace it with a different set. Since then it takes about 8 seconds to switch between categories. This is true even for categories with just a few games. BigBox however is running really well, I experience no lag at all there. Related info: 9934 games, No background images in launchbox options, Optimized images, Was changing categories in like 1 - 2 seconds until I deleted a massive category. Thanks in advance.
  3. New project ! Experience Cinematic 4K Resolution 3840x2160 Sound AAC 320Kbtis/s Thank you so much once again my French friend @Lavro Enjoy
  4. Okay so, I used Launchbox --> Retroarch before but rocketlauncher offered a lot of nice features so i decided to give it ago. Forever later after i finally got it working properly i noticed i don't have custom configs for every console i'm using inside Retroarch (nintendo64, nes etc). So i looked through RocketLauncher and i found the "CLI Parameters" which i assume stand for something along the lines of 'command-line parameters'. Which is great, it's the same as the the option in launchbox called "Default Command-Line Parameters" where you put in your config source per console. Thing is i can't get it to work, the "command-line" i used in Launchbox was '-c "retroarch.cfg"' which takes the file from retroarch directory directly and puts them to use ('-c "config\retroarch.cfg"' is another example). Used the same command-line inside RocketLauncher but it doesn't use the config whenever i load up any game of that specific console in Launchbox. Anyone know a way to get the custom config to work through RocketLauncher? / I know the text is bit scrumbled but honestly my experience with RocketLaunch is the same, really messy but of course a great utility. // Also if i put this thread in the wrong forum section my bad - feel free to move it or w/e. thanks in advance
  5. Hello, Recently I purchased launchbox and I love it. I got all my games using Retroarch setup with it easily however I am having issues with CPS games and Neo Geo games. They work in Retroarch but not in launchbox. When I click them I mouse pointer goes as if its loading but it does not. I have tried all the cores i am using with launch box that are able to run these games and made sure the neogeo bios is in the correct place. I have tried the following cores: fbalpha_libretro.dll fbalpha2012_libretro.dll mame_libretro.dll mame2014_libretro.dll They are all working in Retroarch using fbalpha_libretro.dll with no problems. I have ensured that extract rom is not checked as well. Is there anything I might be missing? I have been stuck on this all day and have visited the forum and checked multiple posts and checked youtube tutorials before asking and am about ready to pull my hair out. Thanks for any help I get in advance. Reading the posts I love this community and hope to be a part of it!
  6. HEY guys, I have a ton of roms to import and I am trying to get rid of all the duplicates using tools like dupeguru etc. In LB I don't have time to go through thousands of roms to delete hundreds of duplicates, is there some function to do this for me when importing roms to the database?
  7. Hey Guys, yes i am back from the dead... I lost all my stuff due to a fried hardrive months ago and man that set me back years... Anyways I am now just getting back to setting up LB and I was wondering why it doesn't say my licensed named on it anymore like it use to when ever I would open it...? I got the full version several months ago and wanted to know if this is a new update or is something else wrong.. I am using vers. 7.11 currently
  8. Hi all, I am trying to get my trackball working in retroarch and not sure where to start. The trackball works as a mouse right now but I want to play Marble Madness and other games with it. Any advice would greatly be appreciated!!!
  9. I finally ditched the libretro cores due to numerous reasons and too many hours of unsuccessful attempts to get MAME running like I would like it. I went ahead and installed MAMEui64 and everything within the ui is running great. The only problem now though is that when I try and load the games through Launchbox, it doesnt load the same .ini file that is in the MAME ini folder. When I load up an arcade game in Launchbox everything is default settings rather than the .ini file that MAMEui starts up. Do I need to set a path for the MAME .ini file for Launchbox? Also, what the custom .ini files that are being used for certain games that I have specific controls setup for?
  10. My 1080p Overlays.zip View File I wanted to give back with some of my own Platform overlays/bezels I use via Launchbox & Retroarch My_1080p_Overlays.zip Submitter y2guru Submitted 09/07/2017 Category Platform Bezels/Overlays  
  11. Maybe soon we will could to use Launchbox and bigbox on any platform https://rainway.io/ Leverage the power of your PC Enjoy Civilization VI from the comfort of your couch with a tablet, play Stardew Valley on the go from your phone or just enjoy your favorite PC games on macOS and Linux all at 60FPS. No additional hardware required Any GPU that supports DirectX 11 can take advantange of the Rainway MSG protocol. Pain-free setup Rainway handles configuring your network and securing your connection so the only thing you have to worry about is playing your games. I like the idea of make an arcade machine without a HDD or play on my (future) Nintendo Switch
  12. (This request is for desktop version, not bigbox since I don't have premium.) So I use LaunchBox as a nice organizing shortcut for all my retro games, and my non-steam PC games too. But what I'd like to do is to add a bunch of programs' shortcuts (for example: Blender, Discord, paint.net, etc) on my computer to this, without having them unnecessarily mixed up with the games (I have alot of programs on my computer which are hard to locate at times). I was thinking that there could be another button or something to switch from "games view" to "program view". If this is a feature in premium or if there is a plugin, please inform me. Otherwise I'd love for this to be a feature.
  13. Hello,I loaded my mame version 0.189 in Launchbox but some individual games although video and pictures are downloaded games don't start ,can I do something to fix them individually ? Thank you.
  14. Hi guys, I have a problem where I wanted to transfer my whole launchbox folder from my external hdd to a internal hdd on my computer. Long story short there are some corrupted image folders and now launchbox will not work unless I get rid of those folders. So now I'm in damage control and am trying to save all my roms. My question is what config files and xml files do I need if I wanna start a new build with out importing all my roms and images again
  15. Just downloaded Tales of Symphonia for Dolphin and apparently the m3u method does not work for Gamecube? I looked at some other posts and found that people are using the additional apps method. However, whenever I go to add the second disc as an additional app the .iso files do not show up. Is there a way to do this?
  16. How do I get multi disc games (such as Chrono Cross, Final Fantasy etc.) to work in RetroArch and how does this affect Launchbox?
  17. I drafted a long message to post to the Hyperspin forums, but before I did so I decided to do some Googling and look for other options. There are many opinions out there when looking for arcade/MAME front-ends for some reason, a thread asking which is the best can result in 10 different answers, but I'm happy that one person's response led me to look at Launchbox. I'm instead taking that draft message, changing it a bit, and posting here. I've wanted to do some kind of MAME setup for years, and had something really rudimentary setup with arcade sticks for a long time. However, looking at Youtube videos left me drooling to do something much nicer, maybe within an arcade cabinet or maybe not. I work a lot of hours and have a wife and kids so time is very short. About 6 months ago I decide to dive head first into Hyperspin. I had heard it was a bear to work with, but figured "how bad could it be?". I'm in the IT field so typically if I make the time I can wrap my head around anything like that. I spent lots of hours over a week or 2 setting up Hyperspin. Although I got it 80% of where I wanted it to be, I was left not having a good understanding of how everything worked. Everything seemed hacked and kludge together, with many add-ons overlapping one another feature was. The configuration was not straightforward at all to me, and any time I wanted to change something I found myself looking at tutorial after tutorial hoping to find one that was current and using the most modern add-ons/hacks. I was left pretty discouraged. About a week ago I decided to dive back in but was stressed out just thinking about it and wondering if there was a better way. I had donated to Emumovies and the Hyperspin forums already so had money invested. 5 minutes after installing Launchbox I was so glad I did. My Emumovies donation was not going to waste, and downloading all the media and metadata was sure lots easier! I replicated everything I had setup in Hyperspin and much more in a fraction of the time, and I feel like I have a good idea of how Launchbox works. Things are much smoother and more reliable, and every time I've found a hiccup with something (usually an emulator issue) Launchbox seems to have a solution. I can tell a lot of logical thought went into Launchbox, ongoing development seems awesome, and I was happy to purchase it! Anyway, so glad to be here.
  18. Hello, First of all I've had launch box premium for 2 weeks now and it is awesome. Everything I could've wanted plus more. The only thing I'm having trouble with is exiting the pcsx2 emulator with controller automation. I can only use the ESC key on the keyboard. I've got about 13 other emulators working perfectly with it using a wireless Xbox 360 controller and holding back plus pushing start as an exit combo. I also don't believe pcsx2 has a controller config to do this within the emulator. I looked at this thread and followed the steps but it didn't quite work for me. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This is the very last step to having a complete big box setup with no mouse or keyboard. Edit: I just realized this may be in the wrong forum. Mods please move if necessary.
  19. Whenever I launch any game in Launchbox, all Crash Bandicoot games, I get sent immediately to a black screen with no sound. I've followed the tutorials on youtube from the Launchbox channel and another tutorial which was the second video when i searched 'retroarch ps1 blackscreen'. I've followed every step and have the bios in correctly I made cue files from the iso for each game and haven't had any luck. I will be happy to provide screenshots of anything requested and any help would be graciously appreciated since I told myself at 3pm EST " I'll just set up the PS1 emulator and then go shower", thinking it would be as easy as Dolphin, I still haven't showered.
  20. Hey guys - it's me again with another stupid question I'm sure. After watching Jason and Wood and Brad's videos I finally upgraded to a lifetime Premium account. I'm really loving Launchbox and Big Box makes it just that much better. So my question - I'm loving the custom big box themes that are available. I've downloaded a handful of them (most per Woods' recommendation) but i can't seem to get any of the background images to show. I can get the fanart or clear logos but for ones like CityHunter that have all those great videos or Minimal AO has a whole folder of backgrounds that I have no clue how where to put them etc, just to name a couple. Is there an easy way to add or specify a background image that's not the random fanart or clear logo? Or to make a great theme like CityHunter's not just have a blank black screen on all the platforms? Excuse my ignorance. Trying to figure this out on my own had had me pulling my hair out and it's not like i have a lot to begin with anymore Thanks guys! LG
  21. Hi, Just wondering how big everyone's Lauchbox directory is(excluding roms!). Reason I'm asking is because I'm in the process of building a computer inside an original Xbox case, and don't have a lot of space for extra storage, so I thought I'd get an M.2 SSD big enough for LaunchBox. Thanks

  23. So I've used retroarch with a ps3 controller and got tired of scrolling through the cores and menus to get to games. I want to use Launchbox as a 1-click solution, but everytime I click play in Launchbox it says Retroarch has stopped working and error window freezes. My cores match in associated platforms and Retroarch loads find outside of Launchbox
  24. Hello, I would like to launch Mageslayer through Launchbox, however I have a slight issue, The map stitching in Mageslayer requires a dos propt window to be open, DOSbox cannot launch this game. Leaving DOSbox open seems to work favorably, however DOSbox closses upon opening Mageslayer this way through Launchbox. Is there a way to suppress DOSbox from closeing when it realizes the game is not compatable?
  25. I've been hosting a Arcade Products Forum (coin Op) for a few years and I've converted many people to launchbox . (+retroarch) Since after a while I was tired of arguing with many people (the usual fanboy), I decided to open a separate group that deals exclusively with Launchbox and Retroarch in Italian. I did all the possible guides in Italian, help and support all thanks to the lessons that come from this forum . So I wanted the official blessing of Jason and all the greats of the forum, for my new adventure of the Facebook group of LaunchBox + retroarch I ask for the official blessing from Jason, and the whole Launchbox team https://www.facebook.com/groups/retrogamingnodogma/
