  1. I’m slowly getting my emulators up and running with launchbox except for sega Naomi. I followed the instructions on the latest you tube video but reicast is no longer available, only flycast (when using retroarch). I placed the bin and lst files anyways but when I ran launchbox it only found one game and it would work... is there any other way to get sega Naomi to work?
  2. Dear Arcade fans, I have a question concerning scraping media for games. A few days ago I added several Mame rom files with the help of the default Launchbox wizard on my Arcade system. Scraping all media is a process that takes a lot of time. In my case days on a row... While scraping all media (i.e.: Artwork), I noticed that I could not see the total amount of rom files that are being ‘scraped’. My question is: Is there an option so I can see if the system is scraping all the rom files? For example: pseudo code 😊 à scraping game with name (X), number (Y) of a total amount of games (Z). Based on that I can see if everything works as it should be. Otherwise I will abort the process (instead of waiting for hours/days). The underlying reasons of my question is that I constantly missing a lot of games after the import process. Thank you in advance for feedback!

    NAS for Roms?

    Hi, I have a WD PR2100 NAS and am considering using that for my roms and using a PC for Launchbox (SSD), images/snaps and emulators (on HDD). The NAS has two ethernet ports (one currently connected to modem) and I would use other port to connect to my PC. Has anyone had much luck doing it this way? I would be emulating N64 and PS1 as the most demanding systems. Thanks
  4. Gday, Extreme noob here. When it comes to roms and romsets, do i need to use a certain type of ROM? Do they have to be in sets or can I piece a console together using different roms? I was told that No Intro are the best ones to use but I cant find certain no intro roms for certain consoles like MAME for instance. There are so many different types of the same games I don't know which ones i need. Any help would be greatly appreciated
  5. So I just made the jump over here from GameEX. I loved the front-end but the UI just didn't update well, so hello! I've begun importing my ROMs and was wondering if I could queue a handful of system to scan say over night. It seems that I can not add a new set of ROMs till the past one is done scanning. Am I able to import the info (for example) Sega 32X, NES, Playstation, of where all these ROM are located, then set LaunchBox to start scanning all new ROMs? Thanks for the help and can't wait to get creating!
  6. Hello everyone, i'm new to launchbox and trying to figure some things out. I've been searching for a while and couldn't find an answer. I've imported my roms for many platforms and the problem i'm facing is that for some games i have two or three different region roms e.g. Europe and US. Launchbox by default prioritizes those from Europe and i can't find a way to change it so it defaults to US. Also in region priorities it is on top but still that does nothing. If i go to edit and then additional apps i can choose default from there but i can't find a way to do it massively.

    Moving rom files

    Hi there Im a new user of bigbox and i find this app really awesome! I usually google/solved most of the issues i came across pretty easily and my game collection is taking a nice shape (and space). 😅 But now i cant really find a easy/reliable solution for my problem. 1 - i have alot of arcade roms in a single folder "Arcade" 2 - i created cps1/cps2/taito/etc playlists and everything works fine ofc. 3 - but... what i really want ... is to move the rom files (and sub roms/apps associated) of those playlists (or from a platform) to separeted folders and this way create a platform for each arcade system and making my retroarch setup easier. Why bother? you ask well.. first i was thinking of doing that but had no reason except my OCD, and.... later on i found out the bezel project for retropie. I quickly managed to convert all those cfg files to the windows retroarch quite fast (using an app called text replacer tool) and having costum bezels for each game in several platforms (nes, mame, snes, etc) with minimal effort. But the arcade/mame platform (im using fba for retroarch) screwed my plans, some bezels had dif aspect ratios and i could not use the same core settings for all games like i did with all the other platforms. I quickly found out that was related to the system itself... so... basically if i place each system roms in their folder (cps1, cps2, nintendo arcade, taito, etc) i could easily setup core settings by folder in retroarch and problem solved! tl:dr Is there an easy way to move roms from a launchbox platform / playlist (and their associated apps or roms) to another folder? or i will need help from a rom manager? sorry for the wall of text, thanks in advance!

  10. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this or not. But anyways, I'm missing 28 games from my ROMs folder. These ROMs have already been sorted out by myself as 'parents only' (from m HyperSpin set), and I'd have liked to have all of them imported to Launchbox (with or without meta data), but it seems that if a MAME ROM is not in the database, it is not imported. I don't like that - if a ROM is going to be skipped like that, it would be nice if Launchbox would at the very least create a list of games that were skipped, so that I can then add the games manually, and enter in the meta data. Any chance of something like this being implemented? Maybe Launchbox could generate a text file with the list of ROM files that were skipped.
  11. Hi guys, I had to rebuild my LB library from scratch lately and did import my mame 0.194 merged set. Thing is, I usually had a last "screen" with several checkboxes allowing me to avoid importing clones, etc. This screen doesn't shown anymore and I now end up with all these terrible clones, adult games, gamble games etc. (8500+ games in total). Any clue how I can fix this ? thanks !!!
  12. hello Guys, Quick question about consolidation of roms. When I run a consolidation I see that LB merges "two" roms in one, but, if I have, let say, 5 versions of the same rom, I have to restart the consolidation process again and again, till all the extra roms are consolidated. Is there any way to make it consolidate all version in one single time ? Also, is there any plan to implement consolidation of all the system at once ? doing this for each system one by one is really time consuming. Thanks !!!
  13. Im adding in Roms to my Launchbox database in conjunction with my emulators. The issue I'm having is that Launchbox isn't properly scraping info on many of the Roms that I add, because the names are most likely incorrect or just not being properly analyzed by my Launchbox. So, lots of the box art and game data is missing on my ROM titles. My question is, where is the Database located.. or how can I read what the proper names should be? Another words... How do I know what the proper ROM name is that Launchbox is looking for? Does it have to be exact?
  14. I have been using Retropie but now moving to a PC based system and purchased BigBox.. Is there an easy way to use my retropie drive? I have over 2TB on an external drive complete with metadata and artwork.. Would love to be able to reuse them all.. I can import the ROMs but the drive is full of all the other stuff retropie uses and would be a PITA to clean it all out..
  15. Hello LB community. So im super frustrated...I've tried Hyperspin, wiiflow, and now LB and i cant seem to ever get these front ends fully set up. I thought this one would be promising due to the "user friendly" interface, but im STILL not doing something right. I followed the steps on the "Emulating the Arcade (MAME) - LaunchBox Tutorials" on youtube. All of my roms finally finished parsing etc etc. The rom directory is pointing to the right place..But when I go to play a game, it wants me to extract the rom, which ive never had to to when using mame by itself. I must be missing a step. Im also confused, cause the guy in the video from LB support got to a part where he seemed to be referring to an entirely different emulator or core when using retroarch....uuuuugh...can anyone help me out???? Im no dummy, but sheesh, this is so confusing. Im running mame 0.193b with a full matching set of split roms. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SUQzvbweVgw&index=48&list=WL&t=1159s
  16. Ok so i have c64 covertapes that im importing into launchbox. Each tape is stored as an individual folder ie Powerpack #01 (commodore format covertapes) & Inside the folders are the individual .tap files of the contained games. So when i import using folder names as game titles i get 64 roms listed as powerpack 0-64 respectively. Ok, so far so good. Only thing is the additional apps (the individual games in the folder) are all named after the folder too instead of their actual name. So when i right click the listed title i just see 'play powerpack version...' 4 times. Instead of 4 seperately named games. How can i import with folder names as titles but have the individual files inside the folder listed with their proper names?
  17. Hello @Jason Carr, After update to LB 7.14, MAME roms not import correctly. Various games are missing. I,m tested using a MAME 0.191 Split/Non Merge full packs. Same error. Make print screens for help. Not show Street Fighter 2, 3 Alpha, Final Fight and others. Claudio
  18. I've added the super Nintendo platform but it does not show up on the list I cannot see under the nintendos eg. Gameboy, Gameboy ad,64 etc.. I even tried to rescan roms to see if it show up but it does not.
  19. Anyone else have this issue? I can no longer drag a rom (or any file) into LB to start the import dialog. (i just get the 'can't move that here circle stop sign symbol thing') I can still import them through the menu though it's just slightly annoying as I do alot of swapping. B
  20. Thought we could have a thread where people can request videos for rom hacks if they're struggling to find any! Personally, i'm looking for Pokemon Pink (Hack of Blue) and Peaches Winter Adventure (SMB nes hack)
  21. 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,
  22. Hello, I imported my Mame collection v.185 and I use Mame v.188 to play,but some games in Launchbox are appeared with other name and media when I choose them. thnx in advance
  23. So, I was wondering if I should go through my rom files and clean up the names. I have a lot of roms with country codes and other codes added in the title and I think it's affecting the metadata and organization of the files. this also makes it look cluttered on the screen (see attached) An example is a file like this:: Andre Agassi Tennis (JE) (REV 01) [c][!].bin Should I go through and delete the (JE) (REV 01) [C][!] parts to help organize and clean up the titles of these games and if so is there an easier way than going through 2k titles 1 by 1 and renaming.
  24. Ok, first I would like to start by saying yes, I am quite the humble noob, but I don't know where to turn to other than to shame myself to you all. I've be trying to get ColecoVision up and running on LaunchBox. I used this (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSIht6UXIEXIgz4eXAEShxA/discussion) video as my guide. I've got everything going up to the Split MAME rom pack part, and I know he's being intentionally vague on where to go for this, but I have no idea how to get this working beyond here. Can anybody please ELI5 and get me through this. Thank you.
  25. Hi ! I imported the first sets of roms by putting all French (or European) and USA roms at the same time, and I've got this : Good ! For my Playstation and Playstation 2 isos, I first imported USA roms, then I imported the French ones. But they don't appear ! So, my questions: 1- What can I do? 2- Another thing : when we click on the "Play" text, can we choose in LaunchBox something like "choose USA first". It always launch European games first. Thanks a lot for your help !! Edit : for my first question, I tried to delete one game and then re-import it with the French and US versions and it works. But I don't want to do this with all my games. (If I delete a game, it remove images and my connexion here is very slow) And I don't want ether to edit each game and adding roms with the "Add Application" tab... Did I missed a simple solution ?
