  1. Hello everyone, I am new to LaunchBox and the community and I would like to ask for some help. So as you can read in the title I want to try to run some old game I still have the original CD from 2000 and up for Windows 95 and higher. And a game I tried to run is Venom Codename Outbreak by GSC Game World and I think I do something wrong so maybe someone can help me I would really appreciate it! So I check if the game was in the database of LaunchBox and yes it is and even on EMO Movies since LaunchBox ask me if I want to download metadata and images for it. And I try two ways first I install it manual from my PC by click on tools and import. And the the second way was create a short cut and then just drag and drop the short cut in to LaunchBox. The process was on both ways similar. But when I start it, it first runs good, the intro is playing with sound but then when the intro is done you should enter the Main Menu of the Game but in my case it crash or something else and I get this message: And After I close it this message also come's up: So I want to ask do make something wrong because I thing I do not add a emulator to it or maybe I done some thing by the import wrong. Maybe someone has a guide or a video for how to run old PC games for windows 95 and higher or down on LaunchBox. It would really help me a lot. And sorry for my question I just start LaunchBox Today for the first time in my life and I don't have experience with emulator. Thanks for everyone who want to help me in my situation. I really appreciate it!
  2. Launchbox is great for running Dos games with CD audio. With a bit of tinkering with creating a proper config file and automatically mounting an bin file through the launch settings menu, it works surprisingly well if you do it correctly. Strangely enough, I've had better luck playing CD music with a bin file automatically mounted through Launchbox, than doing it manually or using other DOS frontend software. The problem is that while there is a way to automatically mount bin or cue files with DOS games with CD audio included, the same option is sadly not available for Windows based games. I know classic WIndows games are much harder to run on modern computers, but some do in fact work with a bit of fiddling around. The classic 3D Ultra games and the old Racing Madness titles are a good example of games that can run on modern PCs, but tend to use CD audio for high quality music, or music in general. My issue is that I've pretty much never been able to get CD audio to work with bin or cue files in Windows games for reasons I don't know. I own the original CDs in my collection, but converting them to bin and cue files, and then mounting them to install on my machine, the CD music never plays and I'm stuck with the generic compressed music or none in the case of 3D Ultra RC Racers. I guess I could just put in the CD, but I just like the convenience of playing a game by simply booting it up without hassle. And yes, I have tried to convert bin and cue to iso using PowerISO (That's the software I use for making disk image files.), but I never managed to work out how to do it properly, as it always results in an error. And even if it works, it still doesn't resolve the music problem. I've even tried making image files in other iso based software with the same results, and even searching for answers on google has given me no help whatsoever, as it seems like I'm the only person with this problem and I don't even know what it is I'm doing wrong. Anyway, what I'm trying to say is I would really appreciate the option to automatically mount image files for Windows games in Launchbox, as it has worked for me with DOS games and I would hope to see it work for Windows games too.
  3. I enjoy this app immensely, but I recently encountered a problem. I have been running Warcraft 2 in DOSbox before I installed Launchbox and there was never any problems playing from the ISO. I had the mount macros input into the options file: mount c f:\Games\Emulation\DOSBox-0.74\Games\ mount e e:\ -t cdrom and DOSbox would always find the CD-image. Now, for some reason, Warcraft 2 can't seem to recognize the image anymore if I launch the game from Launchbox. However, if I go to my old DOSbox folder manually, it still works without any problems and the game plays off of the ISO just fine. If I launch the same game through Launchbox, the cd image is just not registered at all. Then I saw that there was a different, alternate DOSbox folder within the Launchbox folder itself, and I was thinking that maybe Launchbox was using that one instead, so I figured there was simply no mount macro in the options file for that one. But (a little strangely, since I never copied it myself) there actually was! The exact same commands were listed in that options file as well. So even if it was using that DOSbox location, it still should have worked. Any pointers?
