About Me

  1. I'm trying to set up the Pause Menu in BigBox. I can activate it using my keyboard (I set it to the P key), but not my Xbox Series X controller. I tried setting it to the Share button, but nothing happens. I then tried setting it to Start+Back, but still nothing. However, the controller buttons I set are able to close the pause menu after it's open! This means it's just halfway working. I'm guessing it's some kind of window focus issue? Any solutions? BigBox is fully up-to-date, and I'm running on Windows 10.
  2. I am using the Unified Redux theme. When a game is navigated to the Media for that game is not playing. For example, 19XX. A screenshot is attached. The replay video for this game never plays. Is it possible that I haven't downloaded the replay video? 1. Where are the replay videos stored? 2. How do I download these through Launchbox? 3. I have these already in HyperSpin. Can I just copy these over from HyperSpin, how are they named?
  3. Is there a way to prioritize Play over Select when they are mapped to the same key? This becomes a problem when using an Arcade control panel and the same Arcade button is mapped to both Select and Play,
  4. Unified View File This theme is a port of the HyperSpin Unified Widescreen Megatheme project, which was originally started by gibbawho and continued by many other talented artists over the years. It’s supposed to bring a unified look (hence the name) across all platforms while giving every platform it’s own individual touch. I’ve tried to stay very close to the original look and feel but also took some creative freedom, especially when it comes to the new fading info panel at the bottom of the screen. This theme was designed for 16:9 screens and display resolutions only. Big Box will automatically scale itself to a 16:9 aspect ratio when you use a different aspect ratio on your machine. Features: Individual Artwork for a lot of different platforms and playlists + some alternatives you can choose from Matches with the Unified platform video set from EmuMovies Fully animated wheel pointer Spinning discs for disc-based platforms Various other custom animations Templates to build your own platform artwork are included as .psd files Brings a small taste of the HyperSpin feeling to your Big Box setup Currently featured Views: Games Text List View: 3D Box Games Vertical Wheel View 1: 3D Box Games Vertical Wheel View 2: 3D Box + static cart/disc Games Vertical Wheel View 3: 3D Box + rotating disc Games Vertical Wheel View 4: Fullscreen video Platform Vertical Wheel View 1: Fullscreen video + scrolling text Platform Vertical Wheel View 2: Fullscreen video without scrolling text More Views are planned, so stay tuned. The theme includes artwork for the following 498 Platforms/Playlists: The theme will also display a default artwork for Platforms/Playlists which are not yet covered or wrongly named. How to install: This theme only works on LaunchBox version 9.4 or higher! Just download the archive and extract it to: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\” Go to the “Plugins” folder inside of the extracted folder and right-click on the .dll file. Choose Properties -> Click on “Unblock” at the bottom of the window. Close the window. If the "Unblock" button isn't there than you are already good to go. Open the Options menu in Big Box -> go to “Views” and change the Theme to "Unified". Change the “Games List View” and “Platforms List View” to one of the currently featured Views that are listed above. Make sure that in the Big Box Options -> Views –> “Show Games List Title” is enabled. Info: Never rename the theme folder! The theme folder has to be named exactly "Unified" or the theme won't work properly! (that's btw. an universal tip for all other themes as well) Known issues: The logo of the Platform/Playlist and the individual video border don't show up in the Game Details screen and the theme displays the generic Big Box logo and metallic video border instead when it gets opened through any other Games View than the Text List View. Tips for tweaking your LaunchBox setup for this theme: In LaunchBox: Tools -> Options -> Cart Front Priorities -> Select all Cart and Disc related entries, deselect everything else. In Big Box: Options ->Transitions -> Change "Game Image/Video Transition” to “Fade” In Big Box: To avoid spinning cart art go to: Options -> Views -> Make sure that „Remember separate View for each platform” is checked. Than go either to the Keyboard Mappings or the Controller Buttons settings and set up a key/button for “Switch View”. Now you can go back to your platforms and switch the games Views for each platform individually on the fly. Use the Unified Platform videos from EmuMovies for an overall uniform look. You can either download them as free user from the EmuMovies website or if you are an EmuMovies premium user you can get them directly through LaunchBox under: Tools -> "Download Platform/Playlist Theme Videos". Individual platform artwork not showing up?: The media files that are inside the “..\LaunchBox\Themes\Unified\Images\Theme\..” folder have to be named exactly like your platforms inside LaunchBox. I've went with the HyperList/RocketLauncher naming conventions for the filenames in this package. If Big Box doesn’t show any individual artwork for a system that is listed above you may need to manually rename the relevant files for that platform in all four sub-folders. Also make sure that in the Big Box Options -> Views –> “Show Games List Title” is enabled! Discs are not spinning / showing up?: Make sure you have the right Games List View selected and Disc images in your Cart Image Priorities enabled (see the tips section of this download description).

  5. I've been watching tutorials and videos on this for 20 minutes and it just refuses to work for me. what i've done is gone into launchbox/videos first i just put the video in the root file (per the first tutorial from 2019 i watched), that didn't work. then i watched another that told me to rename it starup.mp4, and that didn't work. Then I came here and read that you have to put it in the Startup folder.....but there is no startup folder in my launchbox, and when i created one....well.... it didn't work. I know i'm missing a step in there somewhere. I just have no idea where.
  6. Hi all! I have been happily using LaunchBox for over a month now. I use Big Box mode for my stand-up CRT-based arcade machine (everything runs very low resolution; just the way I like it). Out of seemingly nowhere, I am now getting a lot of lag scrolling through games in Big Box mode. I have a pretty beefy machine (core i7 running at 4.2ghz, 24gb of RAM and an SSD). I am not sure what could have caused it. The only thing I did to my machine was add 2 AimTrak guns. I doubt that could be the cause (it doesn't even have software running in the background). I have pretty barebones for the skin (no marquees or graphics for the titles; just text. No background videos or anything!). Here, take a look: Nothing too crazy. Again the odd thing is that it worked absolutely fine a week ago. I could scroll through the list with lightning speed. Now, seemingly out of nowhere, it scrolls through the list with a pretty big lag. I am talking a good 1/20th of the speed it used to go through the list. If anybody has any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it. I would prefer to not delete my entire setup and start over because I had a lot of issues with LaunchBox doing things like showing me Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles (even though I told it to give North American games preference) and wonky Playchoice 10 entries amongst a few other things that I had to manually fix, so if I can fix this without starting from scratch, that would be awesome! Thank you!

  8. Hey! So I have my BigBox set up as a front-end for my Multicade, with numerous arcade titles to play, going so far as to add arcade music to the "Launchbox/Music/Background" folder so that it will shuffle through various arcade musics while the game screen is up. It works excellently and I even added album art and info for each game so it displays the song name, game it's from and who the artist is, along with a nice image of the game box art when a new song plays. To make sure the album art is retained for every song, I have each game's music in a different folder within the Background folder. It displays everything fine, but the issue I'm having is it's not shuffling the music, no matter how I set it up. Here's a better description of the problem: When I launch Big Box, it does select a random song, but afterwards it will sequentially play every song from that game (folder), before moving to the next game alphabetically and playing all the music from it as well. If I force it to next song with the BigBox binding, it will indeed select a random song, but afterwards will go back to playing them alphabetically. I have shuffle turned on in settings, but no matter what it won't actually shuffle them if I leave it sitting. It's annoying, as I want it to ideally shuffle every track together, while also retaining album art and info (if I stick them all in a folder together it will mess up the album art). Does anybody have any suggestions?
  9. I have 2 USB encoders (exact same type) connected to my PC. Each one has two rows (P1 and P2) and shows up in windows as 2 "game controllers", making a total of 4 "game controllers" showing up in windows. The problem I am encountering is that LaunchBox Big Box doesn't seem to differentiate between a button from one controller and the same "number" button on a different controller. For example if P1 joystick left is considered "button 1" on one of these controllers, while "button 1" on another controller is some other button, pressing either one will trigger whatever function is assigned to "button 1" in Big Box, causing a multitude of navigation control mapping issues. Is there a way to make LaunchBox see the different controllers as different controllers, like MAME does? Thanks.
  10. Hello, I put a bunch of custom music into the Music/Background folder for Big Box to play but it seems to want to keep coming back to the same song. It will usually play the same song when Big Box is first started and maybe play another song after but will keep cycling back to the same song and then usually looping it. Any idea how I can get around this or what's causing it? I have over 100 songs in the folder. Thanks!
  11. Retrorama theme 2021 View File This is a update version of Retrorama 2021 Submitter Ninjaman Submitted 02/21/2021 Category Big Box Custom Themes  
  12. So I installed the 11.9 update then changed my theme to retro, then for some strange reason, when I exit an arcade game with the button I have mapped, the buttons and joystick will no longer respond until I use the KB to go into Big Box Options and go into the controller mappings section, then click esc a couple of times and it starts working again. Does anybody know what is causing this? I dont want to have to re-do everything again, I have approximately 4TB's worth games in there and dont want to go through the hassle of re-importing everything if I can avoid it. Everything was working until I did that. I should also mention I needed to delete the bigbox.xml file to get it to see my Aimtrak Lightgun again. It wouldn't pick up my cfg file. Once I deleted the XML file and re-opened big box the guns started working but then I noticed the bug, when I exitied my games. I have done this without the guns plugged in as well.
  13. Good morning, finally i configure all the emus, videos, etc... but i want to finish my bartop with the big box at start up of windows. Is possible to start the pc and only view the big box mode ?? thanks a lot for your help
  14. Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! Original Post: JamesBaker has inspired me to share my own projects but I'm not sure how I'm going to distribute them. I would much prefer sharing them through the same method as James rather than freely available online for other software users to abuse without a Bigbox license (sorry guys). I have a handful of other cinematix I made (all 1st gen). So for now, here's what I'm currently working on: Original box:

    Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! My work blends a few influences relevant to the platform while showcasing the machine itself along with the games the platform ran: 1) Music made using sounds available on the platform (where possible) 2) The platform's boot screen (if possible) 3) Commercial influences usually in the form of the platform's marketing jingle. 4) The platform's packaging. In this way, the platform video itself gives an accurate interpretation of what the platform is, was marketed as, and what it looked and sounded like. In this video, the beginning displays the NTSC box design that expands into the PAL version to display game play.
  17. Hello! I'm having this really frustrating issue that I cannot get my head around. When I'm scrolling through my list of games and select one, on occasion the game details screen will be missing all of it's options (e.g. Play and Configure) and the screenshot will also be missing. This happens often when exiting from a game also. Here's how the screen should look: Here's what sometimes happens: The most frustrating part is that pressing ESC or ALT+F4 does not get you out of this screen, you can sometimes press the "accept" button on the controller and the option will be selected, however you can not see it. You can hear sounds in the background like the highlighted selection is changing but this stops working shortly after and you cannot scroll to the bottom option and hit "accept" to exit the game either. I'm trying to have a seamless controller only experience but this is killing it unfortunately, please let me know any more info you may need! Thanks.
  18. You know how you can put games in a folder on your PC desktop and also have individual icons next to folders? Or how you can group games into folders/groups, for example on PS4? Can I achieve this in anyway with Big Box? As of right now, I only have 2 options: show All Games or a filter/group. Example: |super mario bros 3|, |metal gear solid 2|, |racing games folder|, |sonic mania|
  19. Hey, I was wondering if anybody else has a problem with their background music not shuffling properly in Big Box even if the option is checked in the Big Box settings? Mine just go alphabetically down the folders in Launchbox/Music/Background and no matter what I can't seem to have them properly shuffle. ??

  21. Big Box Revolution View File This is my first ever attempt at making a theme. It's based on the song select screen from Dance Dance Revolution 5th mix (with some elements from a few others for good measure). Since I couldn't quite match it exactly I split the difference between a text list view and a wheel view. Since it copies the overall style of the UI it's very busy looking while not giving quite as much info as most other themes do. This was by choice to mimic that early aughts design sensibility. To really give it an authentic touch, I changed the community ratings system to the old "foot rating" used for difficulty in DDR and changed the max from 5 to 10. It's the same rating multiplied by two. I'd love to get some feedback and maybe even make some improvements! It comes with a (freeware) font that you'll need to install.

  23. Hello, Running newest version of LB 10.13. Connected to Cloud DB and have Upload high scores checked. In Big Box I can see the high scores. I beat the high score in Kung Fu Master, put my initials in and then at the title screen exited the game. I also made sure I was playing the US version of the ROM as what was shown for the high scores. Autosave in the MAME.ini is set to 0. Went back and my score is nowhere to be found. What am I missing? I am using MAMEUI64 0.193, would that have anything to do with it? Do I need to be running the regular 32-bit or 64-bit version? Thanks for any help anyone can provide in advance. Thanks, Nick
