  1. Simply was wondering what you guys recommend in terms of best Colecovision emulator. To be honest, I highly prefer using RetroArch or MESS when it comes to all consoles. I'd rather learn two software programs than 100 seperate emulators. That's just me, so if a standalone emulator is the best or only option, then I'd appreciate your recommendation, but these two emulators are my preference FYI. I've seen that the BlueMSX core in RetroArch has ColecoVision compatibility. I know that BlueMSX is a cycle accurate emulator for the MSX, but can't find any compatibility reports on ColecoVision games. Is this the core you guys recommend for ColecoVision? Also, I saw Bizhawk (I think that's what is called) is similar to RA and has a Colecovision core. What do you guys think?
  2. figured out how to copy the post I'm going to post this answer in a few different areas on the forum. I have been trying to figure out how to launch retroarch mame for the systems that don't have a stand alone core. I have finally found a mostly elegant solution 1) Add a New Emulator - I have named mine RetroArch MAME console cores Add your retroarch.exe Make sure to check "Don't use quotes..." 2) Tab over to the Associated Platforms Here's the magic sauce example 1 "neocdz -cdrm \"%romfile%\"" example 2 "a5200 -rp \"F:\Roms\Atari 5200\" -cart \"%romfile%\"" example 3 "coleco -rp F:\Roms\ColecoVision\ -cart \"%romfile%\"" The reason for the "Don't use quotes" and adding this as a new emulator is because of the special thing we have to do to the command line using mostly the same arguments has standalone mame/mess you have to have all the arguments in double quotes " but because of how Windows handles long file names with spaces the locations have to be in quotes to. This throws retroarch/the windows commandline off. This is where the \ before the double quote at the beginning and the \ before the closing double quote per directory/location. Also we can use the launchbox variable %romfile% to help make this work. 3) On top of all that you also have to specify the rompath if the mame core hasn't generated an ini with the rompath. This is needed for the bios of the core you are loading. If all your mame console bios files are in the same dir you could just use that for each entry The core will generate ini files for each system after first run. 4) I also edited my retroarch core options file. I probably enable boot to bios but I don't at the moment. There is my setup for launching roms through retroarch mame. I hope this helps
  3. ColecoVision Platform Theme Video View File This is my first platform theme that I am making available to the community. 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 2) The platform's boot screen if available 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. The version available on Launchbox-app.com has no watermark. Submitter mcfilmmakers Submitted 03/28/2018 Category Platform Theme Videos

  5. Hello, The current command line for Colecovision in Retroarch specifies the MESS core which is no longer available for download. -L "cores\mess_libretro.dll" There is a MESS_2014 however it does not appear to work. (I made the following change to the command line incorporating MESS_2014): -L "cores\mess2014_libretro.dll" Again, it does not work I also tried the Blue MSX core, but I can't figure out how to use it to actually load a GAME in Launchbox. It loads the Colecovision BIOS for every game I select and nothing else. I think I need a command line (that I don't know). Would love to have Colecovision working in Launchbox (Bigbox) so thanks in advance for any tips!

  8. Ok, first I would like to start by saying yes, I am quite the humble noob, but I don't know where to turn to other than to shame myself to you all. I've be trying to get ColecoVision up and running on LaunchBox. I used this (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSIht6UXIEXIgz4eXAEShxA/discussion) video as my guide. I've got everything going up to the Split MAME rom pack part, and I know he's being intentionally vague on where to go for this, but I have no idea how to get this working beyond here. Can anybody please ELI5 and get me through this. Thank you.

  10. Hi all, Here is a collection of many hours of work of collecting and creating metadata, images, manuals, and vidoes from various sources for the Colecovision system. Feel free to use and distribute our add this content to the Launchbox Database. Most of it was from other sources (THANK YOU TO ALL THOSE THAT HAVE CONTRIBUTED TO THE VARIOUS PROJECTS IN THE PAST THAT I WAS ABLE TO PULL STUFF FROM!) but the missing stuff I went ahead and made myself to get it as complete as I was able to get it. You should be able to just drop these in your Launchbox install and be good to. Public Domain Homebrew roms are provided with this torrent but NO commercial games. This is for your convenience. If you see missing content you can provide or have higher quality images, videos, etc. PLEASE LET ME KNOW! I will gladly use them on the next update. Enjoy! Hopefully this will save people a lot of time. Figured If I am doing it for myself I might as well see if others would like using it. - Hubz Colecovision Launchbox V2.1.torrent
  11. Hi, I can't seem to launch several standalone emulators from launchbox. These include blueMSX.exe and Colem.exe, when I select a game I get an hourglass for a second and then nothing else happens. I have confirmed that both executables work directly so I'm not sure what the issue is. I've also tried running lb as an admin to no avail. I have been able to get dolphin.exe and retroarch.exe to launch via launchbox without issue. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
  12. Hello, I haven't been able to import anything into Launchbox successfully (just purchased BigBox about an hour ago so I'm determined to figure it out). I thought I would start with something simple (Colecovision) (small Rom files) but can't get that working. (Note - I have fully configured Hyperspin for most platforms so I'm not a complete idiot ;-) Here I s what I am doing: I select import ROM's. Select folder containing Colecovision ROM's Select Colecovision as the Platform Specify MAME as the Emulator Hit Next, Select options to import everything possible Result is always 0 files imported. I looked for a Launchbox YouTube video on setting up Colecovision but there doesn't appear to be one. Thanks for any help!
