  2. 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.
  3. Hello! First of, sorry if I am posting in the wrong forum, but I saw the thread "noob" so I automatically thought this was the best place for me. Anyways.. I have just got from using Steam as my front-end to play my emulators. Works fine, but not much fun to look at. So I did buy LaunchBox/BigBox. It looks so great for my setup, and works fine.. But I don't own an Xbox controller of any kind. Right now I am using my PS4 controller through DS4Windows just to navigate in BigBox because I cant get any other controllers to work. I have turned on the option "Enable Game Controllers" and "Use All Attached Controllers" in L-Box's options, but only my emulated Xbox360 (PS4) controller works. I got a ton of other controllers I use for different emulators because I love the feeling of using generic controllers with the advantage of better graphics. I just want to be able to use the controller I am going to play with to navigate in BigBox and get around the annoying step of being forced to navigate with my PS4 controller and then pick up my controller generic controllers after starting my game. A loooot of headaches, head scratching, time and effort has already been implemented when getting all the controllers I have to work with all of the emulators I have, so I really would like to get at least my GameCube controllers to work in BigBox My setup and controllers I use: In PCSX2 I am able to use PS5, PS4 and 3 controllers without any struggle as I use LilyPad plugin which supports Dinput (But it interferes with DS4Windows so I re-mapped it to Xinput with DS4) In CEMU I use my Switch pro controller with some downloaded drivers to get gyro support and full controller functionality (also works with my PS4 and PS5 controller, but gyro does not work if I got DS4 running,So I made an exception in DS4 Auto Profiles that turns DS4 off when using CEMU only because I was forced to use my PS4 controller instead of Switch Pro in BigBox, But with DS4 off, my mappings to return to BigBox doesn't work... In Dolphin I use the "GameCube adapters for WIIU" in all the ports for GC controllers, and "Real Wiimotes" for Wii games. Both of the controllers needed drivers from the intraweb to work correctly, and only the GC controllers worked without too much hazzle.But the problem here is that I cant use controller mappings from LaunchBox to get back into BigBox.. N64 controllers is using mappings from steam at the time which is Xinput, But the controllers doesn't work in either BigBox or in the Project64 by themselves. So my questions is: Is there a software like DS4Windows that will work with the majority of my controllers to get them to Xinput? Is there some drivers or plugins to download just for LaunchBox/BigBox that unlocks my controllers? (That isn't to shady, unreliable or too time consuming to get working that is) Or is there just a step in LaunchBox's options I have haven't found to make the "Use All Attached Controllers" option to work with none Xinput controllers? Many thanks in advance to the people that has taken their time to read this and for you'r guidance, If you know anything, or if there is a tutorial video from Unbroken software/ETA Prime or someone else for that matter that I still haven't watched, please point me in the right direction! And I am sorry for a really long story before the actual question, but I wanted to explain why I want this to work so badly, At least with the GC controllers, as it is the emulated system that I play the most. I know I could just map my ps4 controller for the majority of he systems and then be done with it, but that kills the feeling and the fun in playing these nostalgic titles.. Peace!!

If you run into issues concerning the custom banner images, please refresh the images first. Also please check your LaunchBox image options for fallbacks. I could not test all the platforms so there could be file naming issues. Special Thanks: @bundangdon @Retro808 @proghodet @Tromzy I received crucial feedback from these fine gamers.

  7. I have an Nvidia Shield TV that I use to stream BigBox to my Sony Bravia TV from my gaming PC via Nvidia GameStream. It works great with one exception. GameStream defaults to the 2560 x 1080 resolution of my ultra widescreen monitor. This causes unnecessary letterboxing that does not allow BigBox or any emulators that are launched by BigBox to use all of my TV screen real estate. In order to prevent this I had been manually changing the resolution to 1920 x 1080 before running BigBox. This was super annoying, so I contacted Unbroken Software support to find out if BigBox supported automatically changing the display's resolution allowing BigBox to run with a 16:9 aspect ratio on my TV. Unfortunately, the answer was no, but I knew there had to be a better way. Enter Google... I found a great little utility for Windows called QRes. QRes supports changing desktop resolutions from the command line. With this utility and some helpful posts on StackOverflow.com, I managed to write a batch file to accomplish my goal: Minimize the command window Change the resolution to 1920 x 1080 via QRes Launch BigBox Wait for the BigBox process to terminate Change the resolution back to 2560 x 1080 via QRes I have attached my batch file and the QRes utility. Simply unzip both to your LaunchBox root directory. If your ultra widescreen monitor uses a resolution other than 2560 x 1080, edit the last line of the batch file to meet your requirements. Then add BigBox.bat as a GameStream game in Nvidia GeForce Experience. auto_resolution_bigbox.zip QRes.zip
  8. Hi, I'd like to ask if there is a way to sort the games as "installed" to appperars first (similar to the favorite function) in Big Box. This would be nice in plataforms like: Windows, PC, Stores, etc. As most gamers have several games that for some time you will not play, only the ones that are currently installed I use this sorting function on the LaunchBox, this is great for me. can it be used on Bigbox? On BB, the work around today, I mark all installed as favorites, And mark the option in BB favorites first, but as it is a manual process mistakes are made. There is this features or plan to implement? Thanks
  9. CriticalZone / CriticalZone - BlueBox View File Here you can download alternative versions of the CriticalZoneV2 theme that comes bundled with every LaunchBox installation. CriticalZone is a BigBox theme designed for the usage of widescreen platform videos and utilizes videos as backgrounds. This theme was designed for widescreen displays with 16:9 aspect ratios and optimized for a display resolution of 1920x1080. It will also work with other widescreen resolutions and 16:10 aspect ratios but it may not look as polished. Available Versions: - CritcalZoneV2 - BlueBox: A blue color variant of CriticalZoneV2. It features blue texts instead of green and has a different Default background created by @SentaiBrad - BackgroundVideoOnly: All Views, except the TextList Views, will only use video loops as backgrounds. Also available as BlueBox version. - BackgroundFanartOnly: All Views will only use Fanart images as backgrounds. Also available as BlueBox version. -> Use this version if you have performance problems! - 1.8: The original and now old version of CriticalZone. It's officially EOL and won't get supported by me in any way. It's just still here for archiving reasons. There’s also a red 80’s/Cyberpunk themed version of CriticalZone called “CityHunter”. It’s maintained by @keltoigael and can be found here: How to install: Just download the version of choice and extract the archive into: “..\LaunchBox\Themes\” Open the Options menu in BigBox -> go to “Views” and change the Theme to the version you just have installed. IMPORTANT: CriticalZone V2 requires LaunchBox v7.11 or higher! Known issues: - The description texts in all Platform Views and CoverFlowWithDetails Games View won’t fill the whole space of the descriptions box when you use CriticalZone with a higher DPI setting than 100% or a lower display resolution than 1902x1080. It gets progressively worse the higher the DPI settings and/or lower the resolution is. Thanks & Credits: Thanks to @SentaiBrad for creating the new Default background video for the BlueBox variant.

  10. Hi everyone, It seems that since the launchbox 11.16 update, BigBox does not load images properly. Basically I get a lot of black boxes instead of 3D cover boxes, screenshots, logos of whatever option I choose to see the list of games (I seem indifferent I always get black boxes), this does not happen with videos, manual, the games or any other option different to the "cover" that I choose. Of course I updated to 11.7 version, and I refresh the cache, used the option to Force populate all game wheel imagenes & Force pupulate all CoverFlown imagenes multiple times without success. It is a bit weird because in Launchbox everything works well and I can see the imagenes in my database, so all the problem is alocated to BigBox and for some reason that I do not understand Bigbox does not see the images or they are not loaded correctly. I would appreciate any kind of help or hint. Kind regards!
  11. Hello,I don't know if somebody else asked this before ( my search didn't bring any results) ,is there a theme in low resolution for those who use old crt tv's for emulation? And if not ,is it possible to make any?
  12. So I'm about to take the plunge on a lifetime license of Launchbox premium for the Big Box feature, however, I have two questions before i proceed: Does anyone have any experience streaming Big Box to Nvidia Shield TV? I use RetroArch, PCSX2, and Dolphin. Will I need to set the resolutions in these emulators up separately (outside of what I setup for playing on my PC), or will Nvidia's streaming technology "automagically" handle it? In regards to the Shield Controller --- do I need to configure it within each Emulator, or will Big Box / RetroArch / Dolphin / PCSX2 recognize as an XInput controller and work "automagically"? For context, I have gone in and setup controller schemes for my xbox one controller when I play on my PC. Not a dealbreaker by any means, I just want to know what kind of pre-configuration I'm getting myself into -- if any. Thanks!
  13. I'm having a little trouble with the apply to function, specifically with Colorful - Dark. When I apply the selective process to a games view list, it gives me the option to not apply the theme to my platforms list. So I can maintain a custom theme (that doesn't have the apply to function) as my platforms view and have colorful as my games view. But when I try to do the inverse, apply colorful to my platforms view and keep the custom theme as my games view, it resets my games view to match Colorful as well. Anybody know what could be causing this and/or if it's even fixable? Also, is there a way to apply a separate view to a game once you select it and keep another theme in place in the games list?
  14. Have been having a weird issue with big box lately where when I boot it up the console select column gest blurrier the more your scroll Am using it on a onexplayer I7-1165G7 Intel iris Xe Graphics 16gb ddr 4 ram
  15. I am trying to create as close as i can to a seamless transition from startup into big box, but when i put the exe file into shell:startup like the LB video says it did nothing on start up. can someone help point me in the right direction?
  16. Launch Platforms View File This is a BigBox plugin that allows you to launch a game/application directly from the Platform Wheel View level. Setup: - Right click on the downloaded LaunchPlatform.zip and click "Unblock" and then OK - Open the zip file and copy the folder "LaunchPlatform into your ../LaunchBox/Plugins/ folder - Open LaunchBox and create a new Platform. (i.e. Music Box Alpha) - In the lower right hand corner click "Add" - Fill in (at minimum) Title: Platform: (select the Platform you just created) (click on "Launching") Application Path: - Click OK - Now click "Tools" and [at the bottom] click "Launch Platform Setup" - Oh... you might first want to create a backup of the Theme folder you use for BigBox. You shouldn't need it, but always a good idea. - Step 1 In the Available Themes List will be all themes you have. Click on the one you use (the one you backed up) then click "Setup Theme". This will now be listed in the Modified Themes List. At any time you can undo the changes made by selecting the Theme in the Modified Themes List and click "Restore Theme". - Step 2 Select the Platform (Music Box Alpha) in the Available Platforms List and click "Add Platform" (or you can just double-click it). This will move it to the Platforms Ready List. When you are done, click "Done". - Now start BigBox. (look for the 3 horizontal lines in the upper left, click it and click "BigBox") - Scroll through your Platforms wheel until you find your new Platform and select it. If all goes well, this will directly launch your program (Music Box Alpha) without going into the games wheel. And if things really go well, when your system is in Attract Mode, it may stop on this Platform, but then move on to the next Platform without trying to go to the games wheel. @jayjay is the brains behind getting this to work, but I'm the one that threw it all together. So credit goes to where credit is due. (you decide ) If something's not working right, go ahead and post here and it'll get looked at. And possibly even get resolved.

  17. Unable to change theme on BigBox, I can install any theme, however get the below message when attemping to apply and theme returns to default and I recieve 3 error messages stating "an error ocurred while parsing the custom" 1st for system platform, 2nd for thumbnails, and 3rd for platform wheel, then just defaults back to default theme, am also getting these 3 error messages when launching big box. This seemed to happen after applying BannerBox theme, and BannerBox is the only theme I can now apply and error messages stop.
  18. 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.
  19. Hey Everyone ! First Post here, not sure If I'm posting in the correct forum so let me know if not. I'm using BigBox for my custom Arcade Machine for a while now and I keep adding stuff and upgrading it over time. Recently I had the idea to Add Bluetooth on my machine, to be able to use DS4 and 8bitdo controllers on it for some windows and consoles games. The fact is I'm not using those controllers only for this Arcade machine so, sometime I pair them back on other computers, PS4, raspberry pi and more. My Goal here is to find a way to stay within Bigbox and Pair my controllers, without using the official win10 Bluetooth interface. The reason is, my explorer.exe isn't running when I'm using BigBox, to improve performance, boot speed and such. But without it I can't start the Win10 Bluetooth app. ATM If I want to Pair a new controller I'm Forced to kill BigBox, Run explorer.exe back, start the win10 Bluetooth app, delete old pairing save, pair again. And it's a PAIN. I had the idea to find a program/app that I could run over Windows game (maybe) to allow me to replicate what I can do just like the official win10 Bluetooth app. And then Just kill the app just like any other windows games when I'm done (With a dedicated Exit button I have on my control panel with an ahk script) But I CANT FIND any program, googling for hours and nothing. It seem that the only way to pair new device is going through the win app ABSOLUTLY. Any suggestion or idea is appreciate ! I want to find a way ! (English isn't my mother tongue) Bojak
  20. Everytime I try switching off Default I get a barrage of error messages saying it can’t parse basically everything in the views folder -.- Why does this happen? I’ve tried reinstalling multiple times with no fix. Please send help! I see a bunch of people have this issue and no one has an answer so far!
  21. 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?
  22. Support will be slow, sorry for that. If you run into issues concerning the custom banner images, please refresh the images first. Also please check your LaunchBox image options for fallbacks. I could not test all the platforms so there could be file naming issues. Updated view. Decided to dump the horizontal menu. Tried to make it and almost succeed, but I think it was too hidden from the eye to be user friendly.Hi, Here is my first vision of the gameview. I would like to make the menu horizontal. Is that possible with the tools? I have not done much research yet. Here is a link to the template: https://xd.adobe.com/view/d31b131d-2522-4f51-456f-f37fa15d76ed-a52a/

    First, I am not a developer, so I am sure this can be improved on. This is a way to get a scrolling marque for aprox $100 Canadian. I did a quick video of it working in attract mode; It uses the following hardware: Elegoo LYSB01H4ZDYCE-ELECTRNCSMEGA 2560 R3 Board ATmega2560 ATMEGA16U2 with USB Cable Compatible and Arduino - $20 BTF-LIGHTING WS2812B RGB 5050SMD Individually Addressable Digital 8x32 256 Pixels 12.5in x 3.1in LED Matrix - $50 Power options for panel, can use 5v from a PC power supply (red wire) or a power brick with 2 amps or more. This is based on just scrolling text, if you start doing graphics or lighting a lot of LEDs, get a real power supply, These were purchased off Amazon.ca. Read on the panel, as again, if you light a lot of LEDs it will draw a lot of power. I provided the code for the Arduino, That I want to give credit to Cyan Infinite, although I did edit the code some. see sketch.serial.text.ino Cyan Infinite | Scrolling text with flexible 32x8 RGB LED Matrix I started with a generic UNO, but it seemed a bit underpowered, so changed to a generic Mega board. Note, later when I built the Python code, I had an issue with 2 odd characters being displayed at the beginning of my scrolling text which I suspect was a communication setting for the com port, but not positive. That is why I used a substring command. I used pin 49 to send the data to the panel, as it was close to a ground. You need a data and a ground, and the pin you use must match the one identified in the code. If you use a UNO, the pin numbers are different range, I had used 6 then for example. You need to set the com port for your board. That can be done in a couple ways, one is Device Manager, Properties, Ports, USB Serial Device, Port Settings, Advanced. My code uses Com 3. You can adjust this, but will need to compile the Python then and not use the supplied exe. The python script will set the options in windows to match the Sketch settings (although I think I may have an error per my Note above) The send_com.py is the source code for send_com.exe. I tried to use the py file, but bigbox didn't like that. I actually started with a basic .bat file, but the popup window was messing things up. I'll paste that at the bottom for enquiring minds. The port settings may not match the sketch though, so if you use it, adjust it. If you want to use different port or port settings, you will need to recompile. Up to you where you put the send_com.exe, but note that windows antivirus deems it a security risk when you try running it, it will block it and remove the file, so you will need to exclude it, I found it easiest to create a subfolder and exclude the subfolder from scanning. SEE V 1.02 or newer, recommend use of the ZIP version and not the single file exe to avoid this issue. If you are concerned I am providing malicious code, read the .py file and compile it yourself. Not going to try to tutorial that, I'm a novice at best and there is lots of info on the web. For some reason windows antivirus does this with all py files compiled as a single file exe, at least ones compiled using pyinstaller. See the screenshot for the LaunchBox LEDBlinky settings. Browse to where you put the send_com.exe file, your path will not likely be same as mine. So there are a couple things I don't like about my solution. LaunchBox and BigBox don't seem to be coded exactly the same for what to send to LEDBlinky for parameters. I didn't test LaunchBox really. Think it is close though. It does not send the Platform name (MAME, Playstation, etc...) when scrolling the Platform wheel, or I couldn't figure it out. If you navigate to a Platform (like MAME) in BigBox, it will show the game followed by platform, If you move the Game wheel, it will update to the game. If you select the game, it will update to the game. BUT if you navigate up a level, I could not find any content sent. That would be ok going from Game Details to Game Wheel, but not so going from Game Wheel to Platforms. And this all uses the same level code of 8 (the first passed parameter). I would like to code around that sometime, but have a bunch of learning to do... Feel free to update this if you like. If you find it useful, excellent

If you do decide to share this, please make sure to give me credit for making the sounds. Enjoy! V15UAL K3YS Submitter V15UAL K3YS Submitted 06/13/2021 Category Big Box Sound Packs
