  1. Hey everyone, over the last few days I've been trying to get various computer systems to work with mame and having games automatically loaded via autoboot command. With the help of @JoeViking245 and @kurzih I was able to get several the Acorn Electron roms to automatically boot when starting a rom via LaunchBox. You can accompish this either by using a command line or by editing the electron.ini in...system\mame\ini\ (if you use retroarch: Example: # # SCRIPTING OPTIONS autoboot_command "*cat\n\n\n\n\n\n*run !boot\n" autoboot_delay 2 autoboot_scrip
  2. I'm having some trouble getting Kronos to properly function with Launchbox. I originally had it working well enough for one troublesome STV arcade game (Cotton 2, since the music is fixed in Kronos as opposed to MAME) but I realized that when I tried to add more MAME-incompatible games it just loads whatever game was set up to load last in the Kronos UI instead of the game it should be loading. For example, Cotton 2 only worked because I had loaded it previously with the UI but if I change it to be anything else it will always load that game instead of the one I am wanting. I can't find a
  3. So I've been trying for the past few minutes to figure out how to get Steam to close automatically after I shut down a game that uses it that was loaded through Launchbox. What I've discovered is that, so far, I'm stymied by the fact that games that require Steam to run don't actually RUN, they just call Steam to open and THEN run from within Steam. So what seems like a basic batch file start /wait "" "gamename.exe" taskkill.exe /F /IM steam.exe doesn't ever trigger the second step. Trying to have the batch file run steam plus the game's Applaunch parameters leads to the situation w
  4. Hi, everyone. All my console games are in merged sets, and there are a couple of cases where I want to play a particular version. I mostly use MAME for console games, and in the console it's straightforward to say (for example): mame64 genesis -cart "MY\ROM\PATH\FILE.ZIP" CLONENAME That will get me my clone and I'm happy. But in Launchbox, I can't figure out how to do it. I've tried different configurations of custom command lines and nothing has worked. This seems like it should be simple, but somehow I haven't stumbled on the solution. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank
  5. Greetings Launchbox team and enthusiasts... I have been using LaunchBox for a few weeks now, and I am impressed with the quality and features of this remarkable tool. An extensive amount of work has gone into it, and the level of support to connect up and launch all manner of emulators is very high. I am now trying to determine how to wire up my disk images for the Commodore 64. I am, and will always be, an enthusiast of the Commodore64 and Atari 800 series of computers. I grew up using, playing on, and programing both computers. Atari and Commodore were quite remarkable for their tim
  6. Sorry for my bad English, I need to know if there is any way to make the games start in fullscreen, I have tried several methods but nothing works, so far I have tried the following: command line: -f -4 all the options of the emulator update to a newer version with that native option (I do not run games well) It really bothers me, I would like to know if there is any line of command or other solution that works, thank you very much for reading and an apology for my English again.
  7. I would love the ability to say "Alexa, Play Mario" and have My TV turn on, switch to the correct input, and BigBox and/or LaunchBox startup with a search for all my Mario games. I would be able to script this very easily if BigBox.exe could have a command line switch "-s Mario", for example. This would launch BigBox straight into search results screen for all games with Mario in the title. Would this be possible?
  8. Hello everyone, i need your help. I use demul for emulate some Dreamcast games , but with some games I use "MakaronEX 4.1 NewGen" because the performance is better and it has some options that demul does not have. But i dont know what command line to use for open a CDI or GDI (Dreamcast games format) file with "MakaronEX 4.1NewGen" automatically using launchbox. Because when i tried, only the emulator opens and it doesnt load the game. Do you know the command lines that work with "MakaronEX 4.1 NewGen"? Because i Search but cant find anything.
  9. Hi All, I am keen to start a list of common command-line parameters we can all use for getting games to run, So I will start =) -autoconfig - Restores video and performance settings to default for the current hardware detected. Ignores settings inside any .cfg files until this parameter is removed. -dev - Enables developer mode. Also disables the automatic loading of menu background maps and stops the quit dialog from appearing on exit. -condebug - Logs all console output into the console.log text file. -console - Starts the game with the developer console enabled
  10. I have MESSUI64 set as my default emulator for Genesis roms and when using the MESS program on its own, without Launchbox, I can get my Genesis roms to run just the way I want, with correct full screen 4:3 ratio and really nice looking scanlines and saves states and preset volume control and everything I love about Mame that I can never get working properly on other Genesis emulators. So I was really dissapointed when I tried launcing some roms through LB. I can get them to run (using: genesis -cart -skip_gameinfo -nowindow as the command line prompt) but it will not use any of the settin
  11. Anybody know how can I specify plugins via command line? I have 1 .cdi image of FPWD english translated that I can't find a GDi or the original patch to apply to a JP GDI anywhere on the internet, only .cdi translated roms. I managed to make it work changinng the plugins, but I have to config the Launchbox command line for it so it will load correctly the gdrImage plugin with this specific image, all the other images are CHD files and work with the gdrCHD plugin. Any idea? Thanks!
  12. Ok, I want a third party app, in this case, launchbox, to launch an emulator, such as Dolphin, THROUGH steam but with passing through custom command line switches to Dolphin, obviously so it can load a game normally. See, I normally use Dolphin through steam and that works perfectly but there are drawbacks. All of my ISOs are compressed 7Z archives so I have to unpack the roms I want to play so that can be a bit annoying. I have decided to try out using launch box and it has that feature to unpack the iso at runtime into a temporary spot and run the game, neat! Plus, it is really pretty and I
