  1. Any time I try pressing a game on launchbox it says initializing and for some games it goes into machine loading up to about 50% then just closes. The tab just closes there is no error, I was previously having a problem where it said fatal error required files are missing the machine cannot be run. However, the problem has changed to not showing anything. The games also do not work on MAME itself. I've looked through different forums about the same question, but their solutions weren't working for me. I've tried editing the rom path on mame.ini. Thanks, for any help.
  2. So I've been using rom center to double check my files to make sure we are in the good. Most are correcting but I have some where all files needed are there and the game simply will not load. List is being generated from mame it's self and cross reference with the ones I have in folder. Some examples would be both area 51 and area 51/maximum force Astro Chase - bass angler - bass angler 2 - battle arena toshinden 2 - bonze adventure Just to name some. Anyone else experience this issue and figure out what's going on? With the Capcom games I found there was a file needed that rom center was not picking up on
  3. having issues when uploading my PSP ROM's to launchbox where its not differentiating between the files internals and the actual game therefore not uploading the game properly. any help with this?
  4. Hi Guys, I have an issue when asking launchbox to extract a rom before launching it. When I check the box, then run the game, launchbox opens my default extraction app (7zip) and shows me the content of the zip/7z, or whatever compressed file within the 7zip interface. And nothing happens next to that... What am I doing wrong here? Isn't launchbox supposed to just do this extraction in the back and just run the rom (usually a cue, bin or other iso file i keep zipped for obvious space saving reasons). Thanks !!!
  5. So i really want to play some games, loads of people use wii games, some 360 games etc. but whenever i try to use this software its going great during set up. All the details show fantastic. The one downside is that it never fucking starts. Every tutorial i see never explains how they get the games they want as ROM Files like even with emulators allowing iso it wont let me use mine. I'm getting so fucking stressed out over this shit, can someone explain to me how this is done. I really want to play some of my games on my pc without having to set the old consoles up. Thank you ~Matthew
  6. So, I've been trying to troubleshoot this for a while now, but I just can't seem to get the Naomi Metal Slug 6 conversion to run properly in Launchbox. It runs fine when I launch it in Demul, although I do have to launch it via "Load decrypted rom", as it is a custom hack. The file itself is a ".bin" file, so I am not sure if this has anything to do with the problems I'm having. Here's my a screenshot of my default Naomi setup for Demul that I'm trying to run this conversion with (works perfectly for all normal Naomi games). When I run it with this setup, it just pops up with a demul window and the games list for Naomi. Any suggestions?
  7. Hi Guys, First of all I'm just starting out, so still a lot to learn, but love bigbox, it's amazing and the tutorials help immensely! Was wondering how you all go about organizing roms and deciding what to import? Since I'm just getting into things I like to have a good setup from the get-go. Right now I have all roms in the appropriate folders like Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis and so on. But within these folders I have rom versions from usa, europe, japan. Some games are region specific single games but a lot of games are just the same game only different region. So what do you guys do? Split these sets into regions separate the roms? Keep preferred region get rid of the others? Or just import all since launchbox combines the roms with the same name, but then you're wasting a lot of space on the same game multiple times. Or do you just add your preferred region and add region specific games on top? Like to hear your thoughts before I get to far in, now i'm still able to make changes without having to do too much work Many thanks,
  8. I really like how launch box merges roms with the same name and only one game is displayed. Would love to see a feature that allows us delete roms based on region preferences. For example; if I had mortal kombat (usa), mortal kombat (pal), and mortal kombat (japan), I could set up region preference to keep usa roms but when a usa Rom is not available to keep a pal Rom but when neither the usa or pal Rom is available to keep a Japan Rom. The would be awesome. If this feature is already available please let me know. Thank you!!
  9. so I'm trying to save space and compress my roms and then let Launchbox extract them as needed, this works GREAT for PS1 and earlier generation ROMs because they are already relatively small files. But when I tried this on my PS2 games it works, but takes forever (which is understandable sine the file I tested was a Double Layered Disc that is 8 GB), so my question is, which compression settings are the best for not only saving on File Size, but also Fast Extraction Time? For the record I am using 7zip and compressing to .ZIPs with these settings: Ultra, LZMA, 8 MB, 128 Word Size. These settings brought my 8 GB ROM down to 6.8 GB, so its a decent amount of savings. What settings have you guys tried and what do you think would work the best?

    Rom naming

    I've noticed certain games with versions in the names get skipped when downloading media. Dreamcast collection did this alot due to version numbers in the names. Anyone have any tips or lists I can use to rename my roms to ensure my roms will have the best chance at getting media downloaded for them. I mostly use no-intro and redump collections. Also, is there a tool or simi-easy way to rename the roms and media files I already have at the same time? I've manually added in 100's or maybe even 1,000's of the missing box art pictures. Mostly the front 2D & 3D covers. Thank you
  11. I came across this guide for filtering roms with clrmamepro and thought I would share it with you guys. I did not write it and I don't remember which site it came off of but here it is. Hope this helps you guys out. This guide will allow you to filter out all of the USA roms plus all of the exclusives from every other region. This guide uses no-intro rom sets Install ClrMamePro. Go to No-Intro's DAT-o-Matic, select the system of your rom set and download the parent-clone DAT file. Determine if your system rom set needs a header file on the global No-Intro datset download page. Lookup your system and see if there is a yellow icon thingy on the right side which provides a header download. Extract the archive after downloading and place the extracted XML header file in the <ClrMamePro installation folder>.\Headers folder. Run ClrMamePro and select "Add DatFile" from the Profiler. Browse to your DAT file and select the default location to save it. Open it under "NEW DATFILES" and select "Default". Go to "Settings" in the main window. Add your ROM path(s). Select "1G1R Mode" beneath "Region / Language Mode". (If this option is greyed out, then your DAT file doesn't contain parent-clone info). Select "Regions" from the upper-left dropdown menu. If your DAT file contains parent-clone info with regions you should see them here. Select the regions which you want included in your 1G1R set and leave out those you don't want. As reference, I chose from top (so highest priority) to down: USA, CAN, AUS, EUR, HOL, ASI, BRA, FRA, GER, ITA, SPA, SWE. I left KOR, CHN, JPN unchecked and will be left out. This saves me a lot of roms which I can't play anyway since I can't read the language anyway . Now close the window. Go to "Scanner" in de main window. In the lower left part of the window you will see a lot of checkboxes. Make sure you have all in the right column (Fix) unselected. Make sure you have all in the left column (Check) selected except for "Unneeded". Select "New Scan..." When the scan finishes it will tell you if you have all of the roms in your set for the 1G1R set. If you do you can continue. If you don't you have two options. Search and download for the missing rom(s) or copy an other region version for each of the missing roms from your set to a temp folder. Now press the "OK" button. BEWARE: the following steps will delete unneeded roms not included in the 1G1R set you are wanting to build. ClrMamePro (with its default settings) makes a backup of the deleted files in the <ClrMamePro installation folder>.\backup\<system-name>\... for you but if you want to be completely safe then create your own backup of the set. Select ALL checkboxes from both columns (Check and Fix) and perform a new scan. When this finishes you will have transformed your rom set to a 1G1R rom set so you only have one rom of each version according to the region priority you set earlier. You can save the Have List by clicking that button if you want. Close the window and also close the main window or continu on to other sets. If you are satisfied you can remove your own backup and/or ClrMamePro's backup if you want.
  12. After following the LaunchBox Tutorial on how to set up Daphne with Launchbox, I kept running into this problem every time I tried to launch any of the games. "Daphne got an error and that rom xxxx couldn't be found in .../roms/xxxx. " After re-installing Daphne several times and spending hours on wiki and forums. I found no answers. - This is how I solved the problem. - First, I would recommend you to complete all the steps given in the LaunchBox tutorial on how to install Daphne. After you have downloaded your games and set up Daphne. Open the DaphneLoader.exe within your Daphne folder, choose any of the legally obtainable games (I chose Astron Belt) and press Start! After this you might be prompted that you will need to enable download again. If you do, go to your preferences by clicking on File > Preferences And enable these three options. Click Apply and Close the window. When back into the Daphne Loader window, Press Start again and Daphne will download the missing files you require. For me it was a 94kb download size. Press Start again and Daphne will prepare your game. After I did all of this, all the games started working withing Launchbox. ** Remember to go back and Disable the three options in Preferences when you are done. I am still a Newbie to Daphne, but I hope this may help anyone who had the same struggle as I had. Thanks!

    MAME Cleanup

    I am looking for a script to clean up a files dating back 15 years that follow the MAME'S naming convention. overtime the collection is just gotten out of control. I Hoping that reducing this down will speed up BB/LB Loading.... Thanks in advance. for those that may post a script i know they come in may types so please post as txt along with what the program that is being used (power shell, command shell, vb script...). perhaps their are others looking to do the same. Thanks
  14. Hey guys, I have recently decided to split my game collection from my ROM hacks and make them a separate platform in LB and BB, my question is, do any of you have a video that would work for something like that? After searching you tube and emu movies, I haven't really found a platform video that was specifically dedicated to ROM hacks and was curious if anyone else has come across this dilemma as well.
  15. File 2 LB View File This is a basic cmd/bat script. It's main purpose is to copy full sets from a huge source folder. It's only purpose is to copy or move roms and images to your LaunchBox Games or Images folder based on a list. Because the file extension is set up with a wildcard, it can copy or move any file with the same name of the rom. Example being: Super Mario Bros. (World).zip / Super Mario Bros. (World).nes / Super Mario Bros. (World).mpg / Super Mario Bros. (World).png all can be moved/copied because it ignores the extension. Just make sure to run the .bat in the correct source folder, weather it be roms, images, videos ect. This is a .bat so you can view it in notepad if you want to see what exactly it's doing. I provided a readme file with example code I used and will continue to add more platforms. I've expanded upon my initial release of just copying mame roms, to copying or moving many platform roms or images. I know no one wants 30,0000+ mame roms in LaunchBox when most either don't work or a lot are weird mature or mahjong roms There is currently 30 platforms and 2 options for MAME and options for mame bios/device files. File names are based on the No-Intro rom/image sets. Each platform is a list of file names to be moved or copied, similar to a HyperList xml. I'm using file names only based off No-Intro sets, which is what seems to be what Hyperspin uses. So for example if the HyperList xml of Atari 2600 has 667 roms, I've created a file list to copy/move 667 roms. Files will be copied/moved within the same drive. Once it's done you can move/rename the destination folder to where ever you want. Use either .bat file: File 2 LB (Copy).bat File 2 LB (Move).bat Place the .bat file in the folder of the source of your roms, images, or whatever source your needing. Ex: D:\Nintendo Entertainment System Source <-- (Place the .bat here) Run the .bat by double-clicking it. If your running this on the root of your C:\ drive you may need to right click the .bat and "Run as Administrator" Here is an example below: Follow the instructions on screen. Set folder directory D:\LaunchBox\[Games|Images]:Games List the Platform you want to copy or move. Type: LP (This will List Platforms) The following is a list of options to copy/move that platform: 1 = (AAE) 2 = (Atari 2600) 3 = (Atari 5200) 4 = (Atari 7800) 5 = (Atari Jaguar) 6 = (Atari Lynx) 7 = (Capcom Play System) 8 = (Capcom Play System II) 9 = (Cave) 10 = (MAME NO-casino-clones-mahjong-mature-quiz-electro-utilities) 11 = (MAME NO-casino-mahjong-mature-quiz-electro-utilities) 12 = (MAME _NoFiller-Plus 675 Most Popular working roms) 13 = (Mame Bios Pack) 14 = (Mame Devices Pack) 15 = (NEC TurboGrafx-16) 16 = (Nintendo Entertainment System) 17 = (Nintendo Famicom) 18 = (Nintendo Famicom Disk System) 19 = (Nintendo Game Boy) 20 = (Nintendo Game Boy Advance) 21 = (Nintendo Game Boy Color) 22 = (Nintendo GameCube) 23 = (Nintendo Super Famicom) 24 = (Nintendo WiiWare) 25 = (Nintendo 64) 26 = (Sammy Atomiswave) 27 = (Sega 32x) 28 = (Sega CD) 29 = (Sega Dreamcast) 30 = (Sega Genesis) 31 = (Sega Master System) 32 = (Sega Naomi) 33 = (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Type Platform number:16 Read on screen instructions and press any key to start. When it is finished it will create a LOG file in folder of the copied/moved files, and copy/move the roms or images based on the exe to the destination folder (D:\LaunchBox\Games\Nintendo Entertainment System) Read the provided ReadMe.txt file for any other information or how to read the log file. If you have any issue let me know and I'll do my best to answer them here. (As with anything, make backups of your roms and images if you are in fear of them getting deleted) Safe bet is using the Copy Version as it only copy's, but I've used both and had no issues. Thanks and enjoy! Submitter Sithel Submitted 08/15/2016 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins
