  1. I am currently learning PowerShell as part of my day job, and I figured I can move away from AHK and use PowerShell for automating stuff in Launchbox as well. This is my first stab at it, designed to get the infamous Project Phoenix Emulator to work hand-in-hand with Launchbox. It's not 100% PowerShell though, as I could not figure out how to move the mouse pointer without AHK. So an AHK script is embedded in Base64 to the PowerShell script. To give credit where it's due, the inspiration for this came from the tool made by @jophran SETUP INSTRUCTIONS Refer to THIS ARTICLE to download the emulator and the translation patch (Yeah, the interface is in Cyrillic and the patch is to translate it to English) Once the emulator has been patched, launch it and click on the 3DO and Jaguar icons on the left to have the emulator generate the requisite settings Search online for 3DO - FZ-10.bin and put it in the 3DO\BIOS folder Search online for [BIOS] Atari Jaguar (World).j64 and put it in the Jaguar\BIOS folder Launch the emulator Click on the 3DO icon and select File > Add BIOS file to the collection to connect the BIOS file Click File > Open CDROM image and simply pick any 3DO game to add to the emulator Click on the Jaguar icon and select File > Add BIOS file to the collection to connect the BIOS file Click File > Add CARTRIDGE file to the collection and simply pick any Jaguar game to add to the emulator Steps 6-9 are required to generate the required lines in the emulator's configuration file for the launcher to work. Close the emulator Download the attachment below. Put PhoenixLaunchbox.exe in the same folder where the Project Phoenix Emulator is Set PhoenixLaunchbox.exe as the emulator in Launchbox, add -Filename as the Default Command-Line Parameter. No other changes are required FEATURES It will automatically load the 3DO or Jaguar core, depending on your ROM/ISO file extension It has an embedded AHK script in it to automatically press the Power button on the emulator. Because it is based on the relative position of the window, ensure the toolbar is at the top of the emulator window The emulator will go to fullscreen 2 seconds after the game starts Pressing Escape on the keyboard will kill the emulator, like most other emulators LIMITATIONS The compiled executable is 64-bit only The Project Phoenix Emulator will popup an Android button in the toolbar from time to time, ensure the Android button is set to the same line as the main toolbar, otherwise the AHK script will cause the Android button to be pressed instead of the Power button Anyway, I hope y'all like it, and feel free to comment and suggest improvements / enhancements. Will upload this to the DOWNLOADS section once I am able to spend more time testing it and looking out for errors and areas for improvement. Project Phoenix Launcher.zip
  2. I don't know if this will be handy for anyone else, but here it is. Another Phoenix rom launcher. So, the other week, I came across an impressive emulator for the 3DO & Jaguar called the Phoenix emulator. After looking for a way to integrate it into LB, I came across @jophran's excellent "ROMLauncherPhoenix" program. It worked great for injecting the rom path into the Phoenix's config file, then launching and making Phoenix full screen. In fact, his program is probably a better option for those with uncompressed images or smaller collections. I decided to go "all-in" with this setup. But I also decided to update my collection to the entire N. American releases (yeah, I'm a sucker for cheesy 3DO games) and I wanted to compress the images to save space. Since Phoenix doesn't work with CHD, I used Phoenix's built-in compression format ".binar" (but I also compressed my bin/cue files to CHD for archiving). After getting over 170+ compressed 3DO images and 56 Jaguar roms imported into Phoenix, I noticed that Phoenix had an excessive lag time on startup - somewhere between 4 - 5 minutes! Crap, that's disappointing.... but it got me thinking about how Jophran's script was used to launch Phoenix. I got the idea that I could cut down on the excessive startup time by replacing all the rom info in Phoenix's config file with only the rom info for the image I was launching. Wrote it up, tested it, works great, now here it is. Here's how it works: Setup: - First, make sure all 3DO & Jaguar roms have been properly imported into the Phoenix emulator. The games don't have to be moved from LB! But Phoenix has to know where they are (and apparently their fast-md5, md5, & sh1 values). So import them into Phoenix first. - Put this script's executable into the Phoenix emulator directory. - Start the "_Phoenix_Rom_Launcher.exe" with no command line options to bring up the Backup Utility window. - Use the Backup Utility to create a backup copy of the "full" Phoenix config file. - Set Launchbox to use this program as the default emulator for 3DO and/or Jaguar games. (use the default emulator settings) Useage: - Launch a 3DO/Jaguar game from LaunchBox. (this will cause the Phoenix.config.xml file to be modified!) - The program will magically search the backup xml file for that game's info. - It will then delete all the previous game info from Phoenix's config file and inject this single game's info. - Last, it will launch the Phoenix emulator and make it full screen. As an extra bonus, I included the option to enable a builtin "AutoKey" feature that will close the Phoenix emulator with the [Esc] key (but only as long as Phoenix stays the active window). This option can be set either in the Backup Utility or in the ini file the program creates on first run. This program was created with AutoIt, so virus scanners may complain. I have included the source code for anyone to look over or compile for themselves. I've also included a couple of images to explain how to use the program to create the backup file or to restore from it. It's literally just a copy of the "full" Phoenix config file that gets moved back & forth. The program comes with no warranties, but I tried to make it as child proof as I can. Enjoy! and if you use it, let me know how it goes or if there's any problems. Oh.. as an additional note: If you want add any new games to your Phoenix 3DO/Jaguar library, you'll need to: - Launch the Backup Utility to restore the original Phoenix.config.xml file using the restore feature. - Import the new games into Phoenix. - Delete the old "_Phoenix_Rom_Launcher.xml" file that's inside the Phoenix program folder. - Launch the Backup Utility to create a new backup file. (This creates the new "_Phoenix_Rom_Launcher.xml" file) - Then use as normal. _Phoenix_Rom_Launcher.au3 _Phoenix_Rom_Launcher.exe

    Here you will find 154 covers for the 3DO in 2 flavours. 1: With Spine (3DO Custom.zip) 2: Without Spine (3DO No Spine.zip) 3: Templates To create New Or Missing Covers (Template.zip) * Covers are .PNG format.* * Covers are the following dimensions - (With Spine 1539x2156) (No Spine 1197x2156)* * You will need Winrar, Winzip or 7-Zip to extract the ".zip" file you download containing the images. * This took me several months of 16 plus hour days to complete. I don't have a clue what I'm doing and was high most of the time. I did this project because I wanted to do something special for my good friend. One of his favourite memories was renting a 3DO from a tiny corner store/video shop and playing Road Rash. Some of my fondest memories come from gaming as well. The images found were sources from all over the net. Many were pre-made covers that were found in various places. Many were from ebay amazon photos on blogs etc... A large bunch are also made from scratch to fill a void. Using skewed box images or multiple box pictures. A bunch of text I tried to recreate and some are my best shot at recreations. Some titles I could not source any good images for. This is NOT an accurate collection by any means. I hope you guys find this useful until someone is able to make a very nice accurate one. Please if you download this take a second to say Hi and comment. Be safe all. djweevil

  5. I have both the Sega CD and 3DO completely set up in Retroarch and they work fine. I followed the tutorial below to import them into LB exactly. This is specifically for the Sega CD but I applied the same process for the 3DO and neither will open in LB. When I try to open a game in LB Retroarch doesn’t even open. Like I said there is no problem within Retroarch including me having all the correct bios files. I’m wondering if there is some bug within the latest version of LB. I’m using LB version 8.1 and the latest Retroarch 1.7.0. There’s another thread talking about this but it devolved into Retroarch setups. Can somebody try to get these to work starting from scratch with the latest versions of LB and RA and let me know if they work? If they work any suggestions for me? Thanks.

    3DO..... everyone i grew up and meet never had one
  7. Hey guys, I love my big box setup and it's just about done with what I need to do with it. I just wanted to throw a few of my issues out there and see if anybody has a 2017 fix for them. I've googled a bit but haven't had any luck. 5200 - I followed a guide to open them with atari800 but I had no luck. Has anybody yet? 3DO - I can open retroarch and open 3DO roms manually, but they never launch properly from Launchbox or Big Box. They're ISO files... any tips? Bios is there. Wii - Dolphin core works well for Gamecube games but gives me nothing on Wii. Any tips? Phillips CDI - I followed a guide to open them with Mame but no dice. I would appreciate any input, I'm a bit surprised at how obsessive I've been customizing my Big Box Edit -- While I'm starting a topic, I haven't had any luck with the mednafen saturn core either despite having the BIOs files so I'm stuck with Yabause.
  8. 3DO Clear Game Logo Set View File 3DO..... everyone i grew up and meet never had one Submitter SuperSprayer40 Submitted 02/24/2018 Category Game Clear Logos  
  9. All 309 titles have been added to the Panasonic 3DO! Including: magazine related material, promotional material, unreleased games, demos and foreign releases (no matter how obscure) In the process of cataloging I tried reaching out to some developers about unreleased games asking if they could shed any new light on the unreleased material. Although I could find nothing new. I did find many promotional works in magazines and articles. The one title that I can't find next to nothing about is Casablanca ni Ai o: Satsujinsha wa Jikū o Koete, a game released on many other systems including the Sharp X6800 and the PC 90. According to many sourced this game exists on 3DO but I can not find any front image box art for it. In my time previously to working with the 3DO in the launchboxDB I was working with the Acorn Archimedies. There I inputed more than 250 some games. Which I am going to continue working on... the problem, it appears is that there isnt a real comprihensive list of this system. If you can link me to one then I would be soooo happy.
