About Me

Found 12 results

  1. Well I was watching the latest news and android got a mention which peaked my interest. As a Nvidia Shield TV user it would be amazing see an Android power of LaunchBox. Maybe one day ? I setup GameCube recently and I have tested some games with great results it's impressive what the Shield TV combined with Dolphin can get you. I also updated my Shield firmware last night and it's brought some great additions that hampered the emulation user experience BUT I have not tested all my emulators yet to see what problems it's caused. We all know updates cause problems!! Other than that I have started and not finished so many projects since last here SO MANY. I will get something done one day. blogs are strange, it's like talking to yourself idk if what I have to say is worth your time but thank you for reading it all. Good day to you (go play some games)
  2. Like many people here I am a RetroArch whore That means I use Overlays to add borders to some things...To fair I dont actually use many overlays but then again my setup has never been polished and tends to be a testing ground more than an actual game machine. Cant help but tinker.... Anyway I totally love bezel artwork and enjoy collecting bezels for all systems (not so much Arcade) I would love to put a big global pack together in Metalzoic's Mega Bezel Pack style (if your familiar) for everything except Arcade.....PM me if your interested. I guess the size of a pack like that will probably need a home on a decent server. I expect EmuMovies is the obvious place if they will have it. So here are my ongoing projects.... Adding Overlays to the Libretro Repo's...They are free to download from the below links. Just click "clone" and "download as zip" Console Type Mainly or Collections like @Nyny77 and @nosh at the moment. https://github.com/libretro/overlay-borders Arcade Type (RetroArch is well suited to Arcade Overlays....best use MAME or RocketLauncher) https://github.com/libretro/arcade-overlays I also just started helping out @JamesBaker with his Bezel efforts All that info will be here eventually http://emulationguide.com/james-baker or his YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCxNgRrtLSth94xOHNUHqUfw @MetalVinnie are you cool for me to share your New Black Box NES bezels in the above places? (When time permits) If you missed those they are here I LOVE A BEZEL
  3. I was checking out discord the other day and I believe it was @lordmonkus that linked to a git repo of images previewing the majority of default retroarch shader effects..... Que a week of Atom text editting and GitHub learning!! I added all the availiable images to the Libretro Documentation website found here https://buildbot.libretro.com/docs/ Under Shader Previews I thought the info needed a more visible loacation. Give your thaks to HunterK of Libretro forums for the hard work making the images originally Side note there has been some nice additions to the documentaion this week. Markwkidd added an availiable input drivers guide amd a MAME2003 core library guide/overview. All in all a good week and a Libretro docs is a nice little project for the inexperienced like me to give back to. Have a good weekend all
  4. Well as I write this I'm currently locked out of the house ? The damn wind caught door, which swiftly slammed behind me when popping to my van.... best bit is the household is asleep now do I throw stones at window to wake the Wife up or try and get in a window and risk making enough noise for her to think an earthquake struck.... Rock and a hard place spring to mind
  5. I have had 2 big projects for my own setup going on for months and had a great week for those Finally had the time to get a big chunck of PS1 bin/cue games renamed to a solid curated database og 1807 games. Some 823 done and about 70 more to collect and convert....Final push wont be so bad before getting to test some and add in that set config files made by someone here (@criticalcid iirc-little search needed) Bigger than that a dude (BippyM) popped up with the connections and knowledge to get Uae4Arm updated to allow for external launching on Android....this means the huge task of fixing up a database specifically for Commodore Amiga to utilise the Ultimate Amiga WHDLoad pack for Raspberry Pi...VERY exciting to have something that will be far auperior to the PUAE core in RetroArch (fyi love Libretro) All in all lots of time consumed by this stuff. The icing on the cake is that with a few additions from @slipsystem i can now have a LaunchBox/Bigbox setup on Android....well that is awesome for me. TaTa
  6. Sorry i thought i would share my pee dance. Driving for long periods and drinking is a stupid mistake i make once a month (at least) Just stopped at the side of the road and sprinted to the relief!!! At least i dont do it on YouTube like Jason does hehe Im the first one. BOUCING up and down in the works van, trying to focus on the roadWhich one are you? If i get time im gonna write up some useful stuff for here over the weekend....
  7. Today was almost a peak day So i hope you have heard the phrase "hangry" for hunger shouting and those grumbles we make when somethings not going right. Well I am now using "tangry" for angry through lack of sleep. Maybe its a used word but its my new one. Should have chilled out on Monday! Need sleep ????...... (insert funny gif i dont have tbe energy to find right now) Oh dear that was a legit FB post i hate to read.....what am i doing......maybe no more dailyrambles
  8. Whata busy day.... This blog is so much better than facebook.....knowbody knows me and knowone i know in real life sees this....I can speak freely as myself. Thank you Jason for having blogs on your forum... Anyway Revival post done, I wanted to see if a daily or near daily entry could keep me a bit more sain. Writing a diary seems pointless and i just mentioned FB urrgh, its full of crap. Today has been a long day full of hard work......Hardwork is good for my mental state but bad for the physical state So took a little pride in my real life work (13yrs installing premesis security systems). This little amount of work took far to long and kept me away from home. 12hrs door to door. 24 Cat6 Cables terminated and a 28TB recorder (Yes 28TB weighs a fair bit in one hand) Working on our new flowerbed in the garden, digging is harder than my real job. Specially in the dark by phone light but hey ho its good fun....So I should get a rest tomorrow lol Any gardeners out ther hit me up......no.......didnt think so Then blogging and discord before late bedtime early wakeup. Dont worry this hyper won't carry on for to much longer and sorry for writing like I like the sound of my own voice....I just gotta let it out. Still a peak day as won £5 on a £1 scratch card.....thats rarer than one of woodhawks top 5's rarest games. Thank You for reading and I hope you like my brain rambles Excuse the spelling, i'm rubbish without spellcheck and don't have time to correct everything
  9. My Blog revival, Background:- I found the blog section one day and thought this is cool, I like writing. (just come off the back of writing down all I knew about emulation, Shield TV and RetroArch) But I was busy learning emulators and finding games to play so didnt have time or want to write my thoughts in blog format. Anyway I have been unhappy in general life for a fair while.....plodding along collecting my romsets, working on my setup till early hours and learning a whole bunch of stuff. Then the sun came out and I got some focus.. I got back to being positive and happy....(maybe a little hyper but who cares) Work/Home life is crazy right now so PC and Shield TV time is limited. I have many of the games I wanted setup now (A WHOLE lot more to do) I have got some really enjoyable emulation projects on the go which is keeping me happy and I am focused on them instead of finding other things. Next I have decided to category my blog posts by way of tag and title. I write about alot of things, emulation, daily venting, personal projects, personal life and uncomfortable topics/opinions. The categories will help people steer clear of things they dont want to read and into the stuff they do.........You know there are many people that think this place is just for games and talking about that enjoyable stuff. Well my personal view is that this is a positive community with a common passion. This blog has inspired me and is improving my happyness with every entry, so leave me to it haters ..... I have learnt more than just how to use LaunchBox here and read some posts with very heart felt messages. I dont have an agenda, angle or any other reason for being here than enjoyment and maintaining my happyness. (This new online life really has improved me as a person) Here is the breakdown..... My Blog Tags & Headings (so far) DailyTalk = general random stuff from the day. Maybe not every day but whenever I feel like it RealTalk = About my state of mind and personal opinions, feelings and Straight UP Honesty on all subjects (Money, emulation, life events etc) EmuTalk = Talk about emulation stuff, news stuff I like and think are cool. Anything emu really DroidTalk = Android related stuff......The Shield TV is the best gadget I ever purchased ProjectTalk = Projects in emulation or home life most likly PromoTalk = Self promotion and promoting others. (This really needs to be seperate from my other posts....Im not here to promote anything specifically but if I want to it will be tagged) Thank You for reading and I hope you like my brain rambles
  10. I have a love hate relationship with traffic. Today I like the traffic because it gives me time to do a little blog post! So Sunday I had no idea that's not ready to share just yet but I have been working on it and hope it will be a handy thing for the WHOLE newbie emulation community. I dropped in here to add a Blog entry on Monday and found the entry from @Temp. You will never know how much that entry resonated with me and my family and I thank you for sharing. I thought I would give it a few days to allow people to see that before doing anymore myself. Traffic is moving!!! Gotta go
  11. Well my weekend Hyper finally subsided after the wife told me to sit down and stop talking and getting dropped in it at work. 2hr job turns into 10hrs nice. To be fair hypers are fun but tiring. Anyway decided to be less self promoting and removed my logo from here. Its going to be more random now, i should probably get a diary but whats the point in reading stuff, i thought today, tomorrow. Off to dig some flower beds at a ridiculous 8pm...i just want to beat my paperboy score Side gossip from the emu scene:- Simply Austin is having content strike issues from Nintendo (he should know better) ETA Prime balls up and got a copyright strike from RetroPi (just made a mistake) An idiot should be getting banned from RetroFE soon. Watch out for Mark Norville @lordmonkus although think he will be at HS. (Promise i will stop tagging people also sorry)
  12. Hi LB team Im a little focused on blogging right now as lack of pc time. Is there a way to categorise my blog. I see the albums button but not sure what it does? (Edit:its for image albums, please disregard) Fyi managing from a mobile not pc. My idea is to group my blog posts without creating seperate blogs. So if people dont want to read about my life they dont, if they care for my website project or my emulation views they can skip it. Or the reverse so they can read a topic or not.
