    Note: This thread will not be pushed to the front in the "whats new" section, if you want notifications for future updates to this file be sure to follow this page by using the follow button in the upper right corner Part of the "Lights Out - Realistic Bezels" series, for RetroArch bezels in this series see: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/1950-mr-retrolusts-lights-off-retroarch-bezels/ Realistic bezels in 3840x2160 resolution for Mame. My goal is to make bezels for around 1300 Mame games I have in my collection, by using existing artwork and recreate artwork that wasn't available previously. If you like to follow the progress and process of this project and download new bezels early; follow this thread: https://forums.launchbox-app.com/topic/52435-mr-retrolusts-mame-4k-lights-out-realistic-bezels/ Each time I reach around 200 new bezels I'll add a new pack. The first pack includes Neo Geo, Cps1, Cps2 & Cps3 as well, these are conversions of the RetroArch bezels I made before. Installation: Place the zip files in mame/artwork/ and you are ready to go. ================================ Credits: Most of the artwork used are from the most excellent @Mr. Do & the many team members: http://mrdo.mameworld.info/index.php and from Arcade Artwork: https://www.arcadeartwork.org/ For NeoGeo artwork much artwork came from: http://www.neogeosoft.com/ For Flyer artwork the amazing: https://flyers.arcade-museum.com/ and https://www.flyerfever.com/ Also thanks to the following people for without them this project wouldn't be what it is: @ArsInvictus John Merrit, @Briball @cmgssilva @Orionsangel @Boz1978 @L4ZYD4NE @Manson976 UDb23 @IainSA TheGuru, Smitdogg, CAG, DrVectrex, tbombaci, italie, MAMEWorld, Ad_Enuff, UDb Raspbear ================================
  2. These Arcade Bezels were made by me and tested on Windows 10 with MameUI and Retroarch running at 1920x1080. Here are my bezels in one large pack. https://bit.ly/2TWXkZQ It's over 5gb to download. This includes most of everything that I made except for the arcade bezels made using Hyperspacemadness's shader reflections. I hope to release those in their own pack sometime soon. Check out my youtube channel. https://www.youtube.com/orionsangel Here's a Tutorial on how to add my overlays to Mame. Donations are welcome and appreciated. ? https://www.paypal.me/orionsangel
  3. I need a way to autogenerate a playlist with another playlist, for two different arcade MAME setups (as different platforms), one for vertical games and the other for horizontal ones. The playlist has been made with the AI Killer plugin. I cant select platform of the games one by one since I have hundreds.
  4. Hello! I am on the latest Launchbox on my MAME cabinet, on a Windows 10 machine. I just learned about two prototype arcade games that never came out. Judge Dredd (Midway brawler; NOT the Acclaim shooter) and Power-Up Baseball, which is an NBA Jam-style game but with MLB. I have the roms for both (jdreddp.zip and pubball.zip) in the mame/roms folder like all my other ROMs. I tried to manually add each ROM into Launchbox, first by dragging the roms, and second my clicking on tools->add ROMs and neither option works. It goes through all the motions like asking me if I want to download manuals and stuff like that, and when I finish it always says "0 games added". Does anyone know what's going on? A friend and I are desperately trying to play these but are getting nowhere. Thanks!

    I use the awesome Bigbox function to display marquees on a secondary monitor. For years I've been collecting high res Mame arcade marquees from all over the internet. Not all marquees are in 4K but many are, I've down scaled the resolution to max 3840 pixels wide and saved all in .jpg format for a good size and quality balance. This could be the largest high res marquee collection out there, not sure. Some game marquees could be missing. 1398 marquees total. Credits I have forgotten where I got all marquees through the years but I know many came from the legendary @Mr. Do collection see: https://mrdo.mameworld.info/index.php @ArsInvictus is certainly one of the providers as well. If you see anything you've worked on please let me know so I can tag you here for credits. Hope you enjoy this collection.
  6. Machtendo - 1080p Bezels Set ( v1.0 = 175 Bezels) - LaunchBox Community Appreciation View File Machtendo - Bezels Set ( v1.0 = 175 Bezels) - LaunchBox Community Appreciation Hello, all! I was inspired by the work of a few users here in the community to teach myself how to use Photoshop and I wanted to create my own unique set of bezels. I taught myself just enough Photoshop to accomplish what I'd hoped to accomplish. I made these for myself because I loved so many of the different styles and sets I'd seen on here, which varied widely - but I wanted a more uniformed set that I felt would work well with Viking's Colorful (Dark) Theme. I decided that I'd go ahead and post them here, to express my gratitude for all the hard work everyone has put in to make LaunchBox what it is. Since I am interested to learn more Photoshop, I think I'm going to continue experimenting with these. If the community seems to like them, I'll post an update every so often. If anyone has any feedback or tips, I'm always willing to learn!

  8. I wanted to share this - after research I've managed to get full light guns working with light gun games in Mame. I've done this on windows 7 and now 8.1. I can't confirm it'll work on 10 (edit, it works on Windows 10. Also see bottom of this post for a link to a later post with info on later version of MAME) ***The below isn't depreciated per say but the very bottom has edits that are of note. I suggest you read and understand this original post, then read though the whole thread or at least THIS and then the linked post at the bottom forward. There has been forked a better version of touchmote for this purpose thanks to @Tomkun and this whole project now DOES work with mame 234 now, no need for an outdated version OR mame uifx - I don't want to remove anything from this first post though because it gives the groundwork for what has become a pretty cool project*** Requirements: Mayflash Dolphin Bar Wiimote(s) Tochmote Software (GIT Here) Mame UIFX Mame (not working with .180, but tested w/.174 and .175 dinput builds) It is a little tricky to get set up but I've been using it for awhile and I wanted to throw down a quick walk through of my settings and how I got it set up. Download required software and install. Keep dolphinbar on position 4 - this makes everything nice when you go to use other emulators - no change required . TURN YOUR CONTROLLERS ON IN THE WAY YOU WANT THEM ON WHENEVER YOU WILL BE PLAYING I cant stress this enough due to the way xnput handles slots. If you navigate lb/bb with xbox 360 controller then switch to this setup - you'll want your remotes in 2/3 slot. Otherwise you'll be resetting bindings all day everyday. I personally set mine to 1 and 2 and turn off my xbox controller when I'm going to play light gun games and nav with the keyboard. - one though - is if you want to nav with wiimote - think about setting arrow keys in the touchmote setup as well as one of your buttons for "enter" and another for escape. Touchmote Setup In Touchmote - pair your wii controller and set your motes up with Layouts- . Go to settings then controller config - and hit the plus. I have named mine Mame Light Gun 1 and Mame Light Gun 2. I would delete all but the default profile and just keep the 3 in the list of configs (more on why later). To set up profiles it is pretty easy - on the right side there is a list of outputs which you can filter by device. You can safely leave it in all, and just scroll the list. Remember when setting these - Green boxes are xinput controls, Yellow boxes are keyboard keys, Red are mouse controls. If you set set escape to a button, make sure to set it to one you will not be using in game obviously) Set up profiles like this - For Mame 1 you're going to want to set your pointer to "mouse cursor". You'll also need to set plus, minus a, b 1 and 2 to whatever keyboard keys or xinput buttons you want. Number pad works pretty well. For Mame 2 set your pointer to "left" or "right" stick under xbox 360 (green box) This will give your cause the left stick to function similar to a mouse for aiming your light gun. You'll cycle through these profiles after opening touchmote. When you're ready to play a game, open touchmote, hold "home" on the controller and use up or down dpad then a to select layout. You'll set 1 for P1 and 2 for P2. Mame Basic Setup Extract into your mame directory (you may want to make a new one just for these games and direct RL to use this emulator since you'll be messing with settings) the version of non uifx mame you want to use (I use .174 mame.) Extract over top of that the mame uifx (I use .175) Open Mameuifx64.exe - and find your light gun game, right click and edit properties (alt+g when selected). Under Controller - tick enable mouse, enable joystick, enable light gun, enable off screen reload. You'll also want to move your sliders for deadzone and saturation - this effects player 2's pointer set to a stick). mine are set to .06 deadzone and 0.50 saturation. Under Controller Mapping I set paddle, dial, adstick, trackball, pedal and positional to keyboard, mouse to mouse and lightgun to lightgun. Hit okay to close and save all changes. You can also set properties for these under "properties for XXXXcabinet the one if you right click on the game under the alt+g set properties" but do not do this unless you find yourself needing to trouble shoot that cabinet. I know it is not necessary for jaguar.cpp) Setting Controls Open Touchmote and pair controllers. Hold home on each wiimote and select "mame light gun 1" and "mame light gun 2" on your two remotes. Remember I usually set light 1 to 1 and light 2 to 2 to remember player 1 and 2. This is why you wanted to clear out layouts earlier - makes quick setting when you go to play. Open your game up in mame64uifx - hit tab, and hit input for this machine with your keyboard. You'll hit enter to set each control. So for example, set coin 1 to minus by hitting enter - then minus - you'll see the key/button you set in touchmote pop up. If you don't - check the toubleshooting section for ideas. Do this for trigger (sometimes called button 1), start, coins, any anything else how you want your settings done. For your light gun pointer - crosshairs on will probably help (I leave mine on all the time anyway since I'm not worried about competitive playing). To set crosshairs - hit enter on X analogue and Y analogue and move your wiimote swiftly in the X and Y directions (for Y point wiimote up/down, X side to side after hitting enter). Back out of menu and test by inserting coin and hitting start - you should be able to play in mameuifx at this point after calibration of the machine. Setting Up Mame/LB Add your light gun emulator mame64.exe (if you made a new one) to your usable emulators, import your light gun games to launch box. Set use emulator pointing to the new mame64.exe with launchbox for these games. With luck - the config files in that folder will already be set and you're good to go. To play - open Touchmote and set controller and select your game! First Play You'll need to calibrate your gun - this is a little trial and error. TAB and set dip switch to service mode (depends on game) Navigate to gun calibration (most games have you use a combination of p1 and p2 start and triggers) you may need to use your actual mouse first time around to select calibration on the screen) Follow on screen prompts (shoot at dots). Have Fun! - You should now have 2 player light guns working with mame using 2 wiimotes and a dolphinbar! Troubleshooting On first run - if your guns don't work opening from launchbox - try setting them inside mame opened from launchbox following the steps 4-8 under setting controls - this is hit or miss on the x and y axis', I've only ever been able to set the mouse pointer axis to set under mameuifx64. Make sure in the "gamename.ini" file there are 1s next to the control settings you set under mame basic setup above. 1 is a ticked box 0 is unticked in the ini files) - its an ugly way to do it but it works. If you can't set controls for x and y axis' - you might have to run though mameuifx again - sometimes the game.ini and game.cfg files won't stick - haven't figured out why yet. Check these files in your mame directory with notepad++ to see if configurations have changed. Again - the mouse on controller 1 is usually the one that gives issues. Also try opening mame64.exe directly and setting things if the above doesn't work (rather than opening though launchbox - this will give you the ability to use your esc key if you didn't bind one. If you can get stick working but not mouse (e.g. gun 1 doesn't work but 2 does) - it is a mame issue - check to make sure lightgun is set as lightgun in game ini or mameuifx. Try resetting your PC, reconnect controllers and play around - it does work but takes some fussing at times. Known Issues: Stick sensitivity for gun 2 leaves room to be desired- but Touchmote seems like a dead project at this point so I doubt they'll add an adjustment feature. To shoot off screen to reload - you may need to hit the edge of your screen (if crosshairs are on it becomes apparent what I mean) and mash fire. You get use to it after a little play and it's not that big of a deal. You may get it working and it just STOPS one day. Most likely its due to xinput slot changes. Rebind controls and move on. It sucks - but its part of life until someone can figure out how to assign device id to slot and prevent the system level changes. While this isn't an "aimtrack" setup - its cheap, dirty, and fun for the casual. I have my wiimotes in some no name handgun zappers and have also set up Supermodel for JP with this - lots of fun after some frustration. I hope this write-up, if not perfect - will at least get anyone who wants to try in the right dirrection. There wasn't much documentation on how to do this, but trial and error got me to a working setup. I have another thread open for some issues with using multiple controllers like this if anyone has advise on it - with regard to how xinput handles controllers after reset or plugging/unplugging. EDIT July 2021 - see this post for ideas later in the thread for getting this working with later version of mame / specifically 234b EDIT August 2021 - see page 14 for info on getting a much better setup for accuracy when using 2 guns using @Tomkun's build of touchmote - leaving the above up for learning

    Create Playlists from MAME category ini files for your Arcade Platform. This plugin allows you to generate Playlists in LaunchBox from .ini files. The same ones MAME uses in its UI to apply filters used to categorize viewing of your games. To be clear: This doesn't really expand much on the already available Arcade/MAME Playlist building feature in LaunchBox. But if there's a rare instance you come across a MAME category ini file that has a 'pre-built' "filter" list and isn't already available in LB, well here you go. Regardless, this was actually a just-for-fun, 'let's see if I can' type of thing. And figured I'd just put it out here for whatever reason. ..now on with the show.. Only games that actually exist in your Arcade Platform will be added to the created Playlist. So say you choose “Control.ini” and Select “Joystick 8-way”, there are 6827 roms listed with that ‘filter’. If your Arcade Platform only has 1007 of those 6827, only 1007 will be imported into the new Playlist. Many of these files can be found at www.progettosnaps.net. (Specifically here) And several more at https://mameinfo.mameworld.info/ (Look for the “MAMEUI 0.2xx Category-, Version and Alltime inifiles” link). There’s probably other sources available out there too. These files are typically (and should be) stored in the ../MAME/ini/folders/ folder. Requirements: This plugin file. Place it inside the ../LaunchBox/Plugins/ folder. Your MAME/Arcade Platform MUST be named “Arcade”. A valid .ini file (or set of files) to read from. (see possible sources above) (sample from “Controls.ini”) [FOLDER_SETTINGS] RootFolderIcon mame SubFolderIcon folder [ROOT_FOLDER] [Dial] 2mindril 720 720g 720gr1 ..... [Joystick 8-way] 10yard 10yard85 10yardj 1941 ..... How to use: First download and unzip the file. Copy “Create Arcade Playlists.dll” to you LaunchBox/Plugins folder. Right click the file and select Properties. Check the box to “Unblock” (if present) then click OK. Now start LaunchBox. In LaunchBox, select “Tools”, then “Arcade Playlists from ini” (near the very bottom). [not to confused with "Create Missing Arcade/MAME Playlists.."] When the plugin loads, it will attempt to automatically locate your ../ini/folders/ location and populate the “Available ini files” section. If it wasn’t able to find it or you want to look in a different location, click “Browse” and navigate to the folder you want to use. Click on the ini file you want to use. This will populate the “Available sections/filters”. If there are no ‘[Sections]’ below “[ROOT_FOLDER]”, that means there are only rom names listed, and those will be added to the “List of roms to add” area. Click on one the “Available sections/filters” you want to use. This will add all the roms for that selection to the “List of roms to add” area. Click “Create Playlist” to create the playlist. Click Exit or create more. Once Exited, select Playlist or Platform Category and expand Arcade to see the new Playlist. Notes: This does not work with Additional Apps (mainly clones). This adds “Arcade” to the beginning of the selected section/filter for its “Unique Name:” (to maintain consistency). The “Nested Name” will be the same as selected section/filter. The Playlist will be added to the “Arcade (Category)” of the Platform Categories list. If you click Create Playlist and you don’t have any existing games that match, an empty Playlist will not be created. If a Playlist of the same name already exists, either delete your existing Playlist or edit it and change the name. It will not be overwritten nor modified.
  10. With my arcade setup, it is always great to be able to look at some gameplay footage prior to selecting my games. What tends to annoy me is that a great chunk of my gameplay videos in the arcade section (might be some in other sections) have these theme videos that show up on almost every arcade game I have on there. Is there any way to easily replace these sort of videos with just normal gameplay snaps? The picture attached is what I refer to as a game theme video; basically overlays over game footage. I'd like to do without that.

    I designed some overlays for my 4K TV since I couldn't find any at that resolution at the quality I was looking for. I'm in the process of creating more systems in Photoshop, but the console themed designs take quite a while at 4K resolution. Many of these are inspired by the consoles design, so they aren’t 100% accurate to the source, they are just formatted to look nice as bezels/overlays. These overlays are designed to maximize screen real estate (IE no integer scaling), so there is no gap on the top and bottom of the screen. Use standard 4:3 aspect ratio or custom scaling. So, I won't be creating designs for consoles / handhelds that display primarily in 16:9, as doing that requires shrinking the game. I use the CRT_Geom shader with these settings changed and the screens are curved exactly where they need to be: CRT Geom Curvature Radius: 3.00 CRT Corner Size: 0.00 CRT Geom Sharpness: 3.00

  17. So this is probably a very noobish question, but I’m curious about trying Teknoparrot, however several things have been keeping me from attempting it so far. The first is the whole malware false-positive issue. I just wanted confirmation from those in-the-know that this program, as well as that Game Loader RH or whatever it’s called, are actually fine to use. The second issue I’ve had is in actually acquiring the program. I’ve visited the Tekno Gods official website and went to their downloads page, but it just brings up some scary message about my browsing not being private, and there’s no way to bypass it to get to any actual download link. My final concern is that Teknoparrot evidently requires some special C++ program and a special version of Direct X. Will installing this stuff mess up any of the other games and programs I have running on my current Direct X version (which I think is 11)? So I guess in short, is this program worth all the trouble that seems to be involved with it? And if so, could anyone provide a working download link? Any advice would be greatly appreciated!
  18. Not many people know that there is a plugin to get Force Feedback with arcade emulators. Currently the plugin works with: TeknoParrot, Demul, Mame, Supermodel and M2Emulator. I mainly use it for racing games with my Thrustmaster wheel, but it also supports rumble for controllers in racing games as well as some other genres. Sometimes it may not work perfectly, especially with every type of wheel, but the plugin is still under development. Get it here: https://github.com/Boomslangnz/FFBArcadePlugin/releases More info here: ((Removed Link - Search Emuline site for Forcefeedback Plugin))
  19. Hello. I am a newbie to launchbox but I understand the basic functions (i.e. adding roms and emulators). I am currently working on my first lb build and things were going well until I attempted to import my Sega Model 3 roms. When going through the set up- at the phase where you can choose which roms to not add to launchbox, none of the roms show up! I have tried this multiple time, choosing individual roms, or the whole folder, it is always the same, no roms show up. I will include screenshots of my process and my Supermodel Emu settings. Help would be much appreciated, Thank You. pics.zip
  20. When Importing modern games and downloadable content add-ons I'm having a problem in which Launch box is unable to recognize DLC and group it with the games that they belong with, instead it imports DLC as separate games (DLC shows no data or pictures, games do). The files that I have for the X360 XBLA (Xbox 360 Live Arcade) don't have file extensions, so that may make it harder for LaunchBox to import the content properly. I also thought my issue might be caused by having different file names of games and DLC. Is there a proper format for DLC? This is an example of how I have mine labeled now: "3D Ultra Mini Golf 2 [258410A3B] Fairy Tales Map Pack (DLC)". Perhaps the title of the DLC should be in parenthesis or next to game title, is there a guide for this? (more modern console examples) Shouldn't Launch box show what DLC you have with the associated games in the games details? (that seems like a standard feature for modern consoles) Rather than combine each DLC to their game individually in Lunchbox after importing them (unable to do so, greyed out combine button). How do I properly import this DLC so that it is sorted properly? Also adding an option to not import .zip and .7z file format for ALL consoles would be helpful.
  21. I absolutely love MAME, one of my favorite things in the world is sitting down with my atcade stick and exploring through hundreds of random old gems I’ve never heatd of, particularly Japan-exclusive stuff. but I kinda wonder how MAME even works. I understand the basic premise behind console or computer emulators, they’re artificial environments that trick game files into thinking they’re running on original hardware. With thousands of games running on different hardware, how is MAME organized? I can see that a lot of earlier games are based on Z80 or Motorolla 68000 chips, does MAKE have like two or three overarching architectures that can simultaneously handle all the different variants of those or does literally each and every game require its own emulation environment? Obviously some systems like Neo Geo only tequire one setup, but it still mystified me how one program can handle Donkey Kong and Time Crisis at the same time. if anyone can explain to to me in me nice dum-dum words I’d greatly appreciate it.

    This is the ONLY Windows 10 Arcade Classics Desktop Theme available anywhere (that I could find)! I know this is not specifically LaunchBox related but it is retro-gaming related so I though I would share. NOTE - YOU DO NOT NEED LAUNCHBOX TO USE THIS THEME. I created this desktop theme for Windows 10 from 33 images and 30 wave files found around the internet and use them for my arcade cabinet. I take no credit for any of the images or sounds but thought I would share the theme in case anyone's interested. I put the Sound Scheme and Images together to create an ARCADE CLASSICS WINDOWS 10 DESKTOP THEME. Most images are 1920x1080 except for 2 that are a bit bigger and don't look that good scaled down. IN ORDER TO GET THE SOUND SCHEME AND DESKTOP THEME TO WORK TOGETHER: 1. Place the Arcade Classics Folder containing the WAV files into your %WINDIR%/media folder. Press WINDOW KEY + R then type in %WINDIR%/media to open the folder. 2. Double-click on the ARCADE CLASSICS THEME file (Arcade Classics.deskthemepack). It should connect the sound scheme to the desktop theme. I also included a VBS script that makes the desktop wallpaper rotate to the next random image and a shortcut to this script that makes it easy to double-click and run the script. You WILL NEED TO EDIT THE SHORTCUT depending on where you move the VBS script but I included it for completeness. Put the VB-SCRIPT wherever you'd like then edit the shourtcut to point to the vb-script. I have my script in my ../Hyperspin/ folder and the shortcut on my desktop but you can place it in your Launchbox directory or wherever you'd like. Enjoy, and let me know in the comments below if you have any issues with the theme or what your favorite images are. I like Space Invaders, Star Wars, and Battle Zone the best.
