    (Bulk) Remove Additional Applications The intent of this plugin is to Remove the same** Additional Application for all games in a given Platform, all at one time. **Same is determined by the Additional Applications Application Name and Application Path. If they match exactly, they are the ‘same’. Why use this? Quite possibly because you used the Bulk Add Additional Applications plugin and you clicked “OK” before realizing you forgot to add in the Command-Line Parameters or it's simply not needed anymore. Setup: Download and extract "BulkRemoveAdditionalApps.dll" from the zip file and place it in your Plugins subfolder of LaunchBox. Right click the dll file, select Properties, and click "Unblock" (if it's there) and click OK. Using the plugin: - Click Tools and select "Bulk Remove Additional Apps". - Click the dropdown box and select a Platform. - Click Get to show the Additional Apps for that Platform.*** - Check the Remove box(s) for the Additional Apps you wish to delete. - Click Remove to delete/remove all occurrences of those selected Additional Apps.**** *** The plugin will 'combine' any Additional Apps that have the exact same Name AND App Path, and only display one of those. When you remove that "one", all occurrences (having the same Name and Path) will be removed. ***Example: You used the Bulk Add Additional Applications plugin to add an Additional App to 245 different games. You named it “My Run-Before App” and set the Application Path to “D:\MyApps\RunBefore.exe”. This plugin will only display it in the list once, instead of 245 times. (Because they all “have the exact same Name AND App Path”.) **** Once you click Remove, the apps you had selected will get removed/deleted forever. There is no undoing this once OK is clicked! (unless of course you have your backup file that was created with the LaunchBox built-in Automatic Backup feature.)
  2. So I've been trying for the past few minutes to figure out how to get Steam to close automatically after I shut down a game that uses it that was loaded through Launchbox. What I've discovered is that, so far, I'm stymied by the fact that games that require Steam to run don't actually RUN, they just call Steam to open and THEN run from within Steam. So what seems like a basic batch file start /wait "" "gamename.exe" taskkill.exe /F /IM steam.exe doesn't ever trigger the second step. Trying to have the batch file run steam plus the game's Applaunch parameters leads to the situation where STEAM doesn't ever close, so it never triggers the second step. Having a dedicated batch file to just kill steam set to run after the main application under Additional Apps doesn't seem to do anything, either. Having it run BEFORE the main application, and waiting for the main application to exit, doesn't work; it seems to be ignoring the 'wait' part and trying to close Steam before it even opens. Any help would be appreciated.
  3. Is there a way to add a folder as an additional app or is creating a shortcut file and adding that the only way? I have games that store save data in my temp files and others that store in my program data and I'd like to be able to access my save files conveniently without having to scour the deepest recesses of my computer (especially the temp one as that file gets deleted occasionally and a copy needs to be kept).

  5. I have an IPAC on arcade sticks and am trying to load Headsoft Vjoy profiles at the start of Castle Crashers, then exit out at the end. The start vjoy works fine, and the end vjoy works fine when I run them separately, but if I tag the "End Vjoy" application to run after, it seems to run both additional apps immediately once I run the game. In the attached picture, I have End Vjoy not automatically running, because its the only way I could get it to work. Ive tried running Castle Crashers both as the runsteamid string and pointing it to the executable, but it seems to do the same thing. Its like its not pausing in between the before and after runs. Is there any other way to try and automatically run the vjoy string? My only other thought is to do it outside of Launchbox through Closemul or something like that, but Id really like to just do it in Launchbox as it seems like it has the capability, its just not working for me. Any help would be appreciated.
  6. For example If I want to add a guide for a game, I add the pdf file as an Additional App, and when I try to open it in Big Box i get a nice Black Screen. I can configure it in order to use adobe acrobat but I would like to view it with the new built in viewer like "normal" manuals.
  7. This problem is from far away, but launchbox team doesn´t solved the problem yet (I don´t know if they know about it) Basically, if you use the additional app section, you can launch a program, a batch file, etc, before the game opens. The problem here, is that, even if you use the "Wait for exit" option, the rom is launched after 15-20 seconds, it doesn´t wait for the user to close it. This is really annoying, because, for example, i launch .txt files with some instructions to read. And the rom doesn´t wait to close the window.
  8. I'm unsure of whether this is a bug or just a limitation. I use Demul for some arcade systems and more specific to this issue, Shenmue 1 & 2. I also use a program, and I'm sorry I cant remember who to give credit to, called No Cursor to hide my mouse cursor when I launch Demul. The issue occurs only on multi disc games, so I didnt notice it until I started playing Shenmue. For both titles I have 1 game menu entry and then in additional apps I have all the discs entered so I just right click and select the correct disc. If I run the game from the menu entry by double clicking everything works fine, it launches No Cursor then the default which is disc 1, but if I right click and select a disc from the menu, whether disc 1 2 etc., it does not launch the No Cursor app. I have the app set to run before. I hope thats pretty clear and thanks for your time in reading my novel.
