  1. Hello everyone! So I've had this problem with Nestopia. I have two Xbox 360 controllers that I've configured with it. I didn't like the fact that if both weren't on, Nestopia would have a popup saying "One or more joysticks is not connected would you like to remap?" And no matter if I clicked Yes or No, it'd erase my config. So I set the .xml file to read only. That helped and I even managed to get rid if an annoying popup when I closed it saying "Can't save the configuration!" by copying a ePSX ahk script I found online. So what could I do to get rid of the popup "One or Joysticks is not connected"? I've looked everywhere online and on AHK forums and I can't figure out how to automatically close the window when opening a rom using Nestopia. Here's what I've tried: ClosePopup: WinClose, Nestopia return $Esc:: { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} } I'm not a coding expert, but I've tried examples similar to what I've read but nothing will get rid of that startup dialog box. I'm just trying to make my setup so I don't need to use a keyboard or mouse.

  3. Hi everyone! I was thinking about this feature now that I have a prototype of my virtual pinball/arcade. At the moment I have like 15 000 games across all kinds of platforms. But wouldn't it be nice if you have something like a separate 'system' with only your favorites across all your systems? That way, you don't have to search across all the platforms when you want to play a game. I know there is already some kind of favoriting system in Launchbox, but I don't know how to utilize it with a keyboard (as I use an IPAC2-board for connecting all my buttons to the pc). Does anyone know something about one or both of these features, or wheter or not they are on the planning to be implemented? I think these thing would be awesome, and definitely worth a look! Greetz, Joris
  4. We're going to start a new beta testing thread here now because the old thread got so long.
  5. Hey All, I am currently running LB 7.5 and testing out the audit tool, However the audit tool is not showing all games in the database. Anyone currently found out why this is ? Thanks
  6. Hi guys! I've recently bought Big Box and I simply love it! I had a pretty huge hyperspin setup before trying to switch to launchbox and I'm having one issue. I'm going to keep both front end, mainly because some of my friends wants my setup, but I can't give them bigbox for free, so I'm keeping Hyperspin. I know I'll need every media twice, but I would love to save some space for at least roms/games and videos. I was just wondering, If I created a Symlink to my whole game directory and a symlink for my video folder from the Launchbox directory to my Hyperspin directory, could I rename the symlinked files to what I want to , without affecting the original file name in the original folder? Example: SNES roms set is the No-intro. Launchbox figures out by itself how to deal with those files, but Hyperspin needs the filename to match the XML. create a symlink of my snes roms folder into Hyperspin directory and then rename the symlinked romsfiles, without affecting my original No-Intro naming convention in the process. Would it work? I know this is not just launchbox related, so sorry in advance, but help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks, Mike
  7. Hey guys! I have a request for anyone that is willing to help, I have been working non-stop on filling the console data for the LBDB the past few days but I need help with making the images look nice that I found! It will not only help me but also Jason and Vlansix as well. Here's the link to the thread and any image with a URL is fair game to edit. Thanks!
  8. Morning All I just noticed that there is a version 7.3 and the version i have is 7.1 but i am not being prompted to update by lunchbox. I have it enabled in Options / Updates / Check for updates on startup but i dont receive a prompt How can i check for updates manually ?

  10. Issue: Im unable to get Launchbox to launch any of my Famicom games. However, if I use just Nestopia ver 1.47 all my Famicom games launch with no issues. I also made sure the disksys.rom folder is in the RetroArch system folder. It appears I need to make a change to RetroArch so it knows where the games are or something. If I right click on a game, click edit, then select the Emulation tab, and change from RetroArch to Nestopia the game launches.The main reason i want to use RetroArch is because the Xbox controller all setup and ready to go. Going thru Nestopia I would have to use a seperate program to get it working correctly. Any ideas of what is wrong or any suggestion I can try?

    Launchbox 7.0

    Hey Just testing some features in 7.0 and importing Roms is a slight issue. Some game names have " : " in them on the database and cannot be in the file name, for example. Arch Rivals: The Arcade Game <<-- Launchbox game name using meta data / wiki Arch Rivals The Arcade Game.zip <<-- File name. cannot contain : Because you cannot have the : in the file name it imports those games as duplicates. Because its checking the game names vs the file names... I assume.
  12. Hi Guys, I am new to launchbox, and have a quick question. Is there a way to import platforms to your launchbox setup? I'm asking because when I try to import Neo Geo Pocket Color roms, there is no corresponding platform to pick. In other words, NeoGeo Pocket color isnt in the list of platforms. Please see screenshot... Any help with this would be appreciated. Mike

    Platform Videos

    Hi All Can someone let me know what specific directory should platform videos be in and what specific file name. when i launch Big Box i dont have videos for each platform. All individual games are ok. Thanks
  14. Morning All I seen Launchbox the other day and loved the work being done here. I have since donated and become a lifetime supporter. However i got to the the PS1 emulation and hit a wall. I have some games that are (Pal) and Most (NTSC) The games that are for Pal when try to load from Launchbox get a black screen. Is there no default command to have Retroarch use a specific Bios for specific games. I have the bios files required as i can get them to work in PSXE but i am trying to get as many working in Retroarch as possible before going with other emulators. How does Retroarch choose what bios to use when launched? is it only working with NTSC bios's ? The only solution otherwise it to find NTSC versions.
  15. Check it out. Sorry about the audio, I am new to editing videos. Keep up the good work!
  16. I was following the tutorial found here but when I went to try open Super Mario World it just cycled through a bunch of background images. What did I do wrong?
  17. The playsystem emulators work fine and boot up roms fine on their own, but when added to launchbox it just boots the emulator. Is there any way to get it to boot the games directly like most other emulators you add through launchbox? Thank you. (I searched the forum first and saw some suggest command lines, none worked)
  18. I have previously raised the query of synchronising installations of LaunchBox between computers. I know that Jason uses DropBox but I wanted to raise awareness of an alternative. There are several reasons why DropBox may not be the best solution - the obvious one being cost! Also, people may not want their info floating in the cloud or simply be restricted by bandwidth/ connection speeds. FreeFileSync was recommended to me, but I have found what I believe to be a better alternative for myself. That is BitTorrent Sync. The key benefit of both of these is that they are free, however BitTorrent sync seems to have a great interface and is incredibly simple. You simply install on each machine, and then select the folder to be synced. You are then given a unique code which can be entered on the second machine and the folders are linked (and synced). This can be read/write (i.e. updates both ways), or you can get a "read only" code, which means that you have a "master" installation and all others will be synced to that. Another benefit is that there is no space limit - i.e. you are only limited by your hard drive space. Also, if you have many machines you benefit from the torrenting meaning that the load is shared and (hopefully) speed increased! The single downside is that (because it's not cloud) based the computer you are on needs to be able to connect to another computer on your network with the data to sync. Don't get me wrong - that can be locally or over the web, but both machines need to be on. If you have a server machine or NAS drive however this is an ideal solution - I recommend checking it out. Here I am syncing between two local machine:

  20. This is my collection so far. I started my project using Hyperspin, then i jumped to SteamBigmode, then i found out about launchbox. My plan is to build a PC inside a SNES console, i already have the snes, the laptop MB that i'll use inside the snes, the system, the only thing that is missing is some cables, but they will arive soon. And yes, I was using a 4:3 monitor, now I'm using a 16:10 monitor
  21. Hi! I'm rather new, but have imported tons of content. As downloads are low, I imported a lot of them without images. How can I make it import images for all games at once or atleast for all games on a single platform? I just wanna tick all these choices again and make it download all the images/media I want for all games. It would be cool if I could select a default for platforms separately or for all platforms to download a set of images/media for all and future adds. Also: can I make it scan folders for changes-additions to library? In case I add games to my game folder (all platforms seperate folders), could it automatically add them to my library under the platform? Also: why seperate accounts for LaunchBox and forums? Also: is there a possibility for a better scanning of games... I mean, some names have commas, etc. in them and aren't connected to the ones in library. It would be neat to click some button like "extensive search for all titles not connected to games" and narrow it down so it offers near matches and makes it able to connect titles. Thanks!
  22. Hi everyone, I am a complete computer and arcade newbie and am having issues installing MAME onto my Launchbox. I get to the install screen (image 1). I click 'OK' then I get to the emulator screen and click "Close" but the emulator doesn't show up. Am i doing something wrong? Also when I try to add a ROM to launchbox nothing shows up either, it doesn't read the zip file. Can someone help me out or link me to a tutorial for loading MAME. I watched the launchbox video for mame but it doesnt tell me how to install the emulator.
  23. Name: Amiga CD32 + WinUAE + Launcbox Category: Tutorials Date Added: 2016-09-05 Submitter: locvez Hi folks, I have created a small, basic tutorial that shows how to setup WinUAE to run cd32 games and integrate into launchbox. I used the freely available TOSEC set on the internet archive library to test games I own and they come in a lovely zip file which I extracted to their own folders giving .cue and .bin files. Setup WinUAE, pull the .cue's into launchbox, and enjoy! Criticism of the video welcome, it is my first ever upload, thanks. Amiga CD32 + WinUAE + Launcbox

    SNES Bug

    I just ran into an issue with SNES (I haven't actually launched a game in there yet, which is why I JUST ran into the issue). Issue: Games will not launch. When trying to launch a game via Launchbox nothing will happen, but they will work via Retroarch. Resolution: Rename the name of the system from SuperNES (SNES) to Super Nintendo Entertainment System.
