  1. SteamLauncher View File SteamLauncher Plugin for LaunchBox 5/26/2018 - As of v0.9.0.2, the plugin now supports PC/Windows games, DOSBox games, and ScummVM games in addition to emulated games (roms). UNBLOCK DLL AFTER DOWNLOADING: Neil9000 reminded me that Windows automatically "blocks" DLL files that are downloaded from the internet, so after following the instructions and placing the plugin DLL in your LaunchBox plugins directory, you need to right click the DLL, click 'Properties', and check the box at the bottom of the dialog that is labeled 'Unblock'. SteamLauncher is a LaunchBox plugin designed to allow roms/emulators to easily be launched within Steam, directly from the LaunchBox/BigBox interface, without any complicated setup or technical know-how. Simply open the LaunchBox/BigBox context menu for any title and select the option labeled, "Launch via Steam". Features Here are just a few of the features or benefits provided by using this plugin: Allow LaunchBox to do what its good at - be the sole organizer and maintainer of your rom collection, without having to duplicate its functionality in Steam (something it was not designed for) Keep your Steam library clean and uncluttered by hundreds of emulator/rom shortcuts Get all of the benefits of Steam's excellent overlay system while playing any rom or emulator Take advantage of Steam's infinitely customizable controller configuration (bindings) for both the Steam Controller and nearly all other DirectInput/XInput controllers Use per-rom or per-emulator controller configurations that are automatically remembered between gaming sessions (without having to create convoluted Steam shortcuts for every rom) Bypass or improve upon many emulators' extremely limited controller bindings and hotkey options Share your "currently playing" status with Steam friends for whatever rom you launched from LaunchBox/BigBox. Example: “YourSteamAlias is currently playing 'Super Metroid (SNES)')” Requirements .NET Framework 4.6.1+ Steam for Windows LaunchBox Installation Extract the 'SteamLauncher' directory from the compressed package into your LaunchBox plugins directory Right click the SteamLauncher.dll file, click 'Properties', and look at the bottom of the dialog (on the 'General' tab) for a checkbox labeled 'Unblock'; if you see it, check that checkbox and click 'OK'; if you don't see it, then you are done Example: If LaunchBox is located at 'C:\LaunchBox', you would copy the 'SteamLauncher' directory to 'C:\LaunchBox\Plugins'. This would result in 'SteamLauncher.dll' and any additional files (if any) being inside the directory 'C:\LaunchBox\Plugins\SteamLauncher'. It would be greatly appreciated if you would leave a comment/review on this page with a bit of feedback after installing the plugin and trying it out. Even just a short comment such as, "It works for me" or "Not working" would help out a lot. The plugin was tested on a very limited number of setups and environments prior to release, so any small amount of feedback will help in gauging whether the plugin generally works for most people or whether more testing is needed. How to Use Simply bring up the rom's context menu in LaunchBox (in BigBox or normal mode) and click the option at the bottom of the menu labeled "Launch via Steam" Note: Currently SteamLauncher will only launch the rom using its default emulator. If you wish to use a different emulator with that particular rom, you will have to go into that rom's settings and change its default emulator (or change the default emulator for the entire platform associated with that rom.) Customize Platform Names When roms are launched with the plugin, the title of the game, as Steam sees it, will be in the format of: "Game Title (Platform Name)" Example: Super Mario Bros. (Nintendo Entertainment System) For whatever reason, you may want to keep the long "official" name of the platform in LaunchBox, but use a shortened, abbreviated, or different platform name inside of Steam. The plugin has this functionality available, and it can be enabled by following these instructions: Open the SteamLauncher directory and look for a file named 'config.xml' If you do not see the file, you need to launch at least 1 game with the plugin, and then manually close LaunchBox, and the file should then appear in the directory Open the file with a text editor, and look for the line labeled, '<CustomPlatformNames>' Anywhere under this line, and before the line labeled, '</CustomPlatformNames>', you can add as many new lines as desired in the format of: <Platform Name="Original LaunchBox Platform Name" Custom="Custom Platform Name" /> You may already see a couple of example lines in place with fake platform names which you can copy/paste and modify to add your own custom platform names After making your changes, simply save the file, close it, and then reopen LaunchBox The next time you launch a game, you should see your new custom platform name substituting the real platform name in Steam (an easy place to see the title of the game you're playing is in the Steam overlay) Just to reiterate, here is an example of what the aforementioned lines look like in my config file: <CustomPlatformNames> <Platform Name="Super Nintendo Entertainment System" Custom="SNES" /> <Platform Name="Nintendo Entertainment System" Custom="NES" /> <Platform Name="Nintendo Game Boy Advance" Custom="Nintendo GBA" /> <Platform Name="Nintendo Game Boy Color" Custom="Nintendo GBC" /> </CustomPlatformNames> Known Issues There appears to be a significant bug in the Steam Client right now that can cause problems with controller bindings under a variety of situations for certain users. If you launch a rom/emulator with LaunchBox and your controller bindings don't seem to be working, simply exit the game and launch it again. This may happen the very first time you try to launch a game using the SteamLauncher plugin (one time total after freshly installing the plugin, not on every new session in LaunchBox). If it happens frequently, please report the problem so further workarounds can be investigated. Support Unfortunately I don't run a dedicated call center to provide technical support... However, if you need help with any technical issues or bugs (see 'Debug Logs'), want to suggest a new feature (I am very open to any ideas), just want to chat, or anything else related to the plugin, feel free to send me a PM or shoot me an email at the address listed below.

To enable debug logs follow these instructions: Locate the file named 'config.xml' in the SteamLauncher directory and open it with a text editor Find the line that looks like this: <DebugLogEnabled>false</DebugLogEnabled> Change the word 'false' to 'true' (do not include the quotation marks) Save the file and close it Now simply repeat whatever behavior was causing the issue and/or bug, and after you're sure you've replicated the behavior, manually close LaunchBox Again, look inside the SteamLauncher directory, but this time looks for a file named 'debug.log' (there may be more than one sequentially named log files if there was an enormous amount of output, but this is unlikely if debugging was turned on just briefly) Zip up the one or more log files and attach them to your message, along with the details of your particular setup (Windows version, 32-bit or 64-bit, LaunchBox version, Steam version, SteamLauncher plugin version, etc).

  2. I was wondering if anyone has the Daphne core in Retroarch working? I have the daphne program working as a stand alone emulator in my launch box build, but it would be nice to see how this retroarch version works. I don't even know if the same files I'm using with the daphne emulator work with the retroarch core, or if it wants the arcade files.

  4. Hi guys, I have just watched the tutorial on how to play Game Cube and Wii games on LaunchBox and what I don't get is the way to layout the xbox 360 controller. I have done it as in the video but I suspect maybe when selecting "classic" instead of nunchuk you go under a sub-setup, not the main layout on the controller section? I have attached a couple of pics showing my configuration. Hope you guys can help Many thanks in advance!
  5. Hey guys, I have a PS4 controller and a Gamecube controller. I like to play Dolphin with the Gamecube controller, but once it's wired sometimes I give up to play to avoid the chance to fall, hit my head, and die when connecting the cable (or just to avoid fatigue). So I like to play with the wireless PS4 controller sometimes as well. For now I have two separated folders for dolphin (using the portable.txt) and I have 2 emulators set on Launchbox, each one with one config for controller. The problem is: I couldn't figure out how to merge the save files. Does anyone knows any other way that can I have 2 controller settings for dolphin and use on Launchbox/BB quickly?
  6. Please vote for this option here VOTE HERE Enable the ability to assign button combinations Enable assigning multiple buttons to the same hotkey I would like to get more keyboard/Controller/Mouse hotkey options For instance currently there is no hotkey: to go to next system to go to next alphabet letter to go to bottom of list to go to top of list to open options to edit a file **to mark a favorite** disable mouse **INTEGRATE MOUSE AND CONTROLLER** (make them act as 1) record a video take a snapshot Yet we already have a shortcut key to: Show status Show sources Show developers show publishers set star rating And there are odd shortcut keys like: Volume up = + but volume down = n Page down = next (I did check this and it works correctly) Also more abilities to quickly edit the location of image directories, this could be handled by xml, cfg, a built in program, or simply a bulk edit for the root of the images For example I have my Nintendo 64 images on d:\images\Nintendo 64 in all the sorted categories fron, back, clear logo, etc. The default location is d:\frontends\launchbox\images\Nintendo 64\Images, so if I could do a bulk edit feature and put in d:\images\Nintendo 64 and everything moves to that.

  7. Description: Tables for Pinball FX2 on Steam are treated similarly to DLC for other games. Therefore, the tables do not have their own launchers in Steam, and are chosen after starting up the main game. However, the following will describe how you can enter each Pinball FX2 table as an individual game in LaunchBox. Note: You may need to get a code from Zen Studios to enable command line support with Pinball FX2. There is a link within the game that will send you to the appropriate form, or you can go to it directly, here: https://blog.zenstudios.com/?page_id=5981 I don't know if this step is necessary, as I had already received a code before I imported the tables to LaunchBox. So check there first if the command line arguments aren't working. Steps: Optional: Navigate to Tools -> Manage Platforms from the LaunchBox menu bar and click the + Add... button to add a new platform. Optional: Enter the following metadata: Title: Pinball FX2 Release Date: 05/10/2013 Developer: Zen Studios Category: Pinball or Arcade Images: (See Image 1 for Clear Logo) Optional: Click the ✔ Ok button and you now have a platform for your Pinball FX2 tables. Note: The previous steps may not be necessary, depending on how you organize your platforms. The Pinball FX2 tables can be added to the platform of your choice — this is just the setup that worked well for me. Navigate to Game -> Add from the LaunchBox menu bar, or press Ctrl+N. Enter any necessary metadata in the Details section (Image 2). Since these titles do not exist as separate games, they are not currently in the LaunchBox Games DB, so I'm unaware of an easy way to scrape metadata at the moment. Beneath the Details section, within the Launcher tab, click the Browse... button next to the Application Path textbox. Note: If you see ROM File (Emulation is enabled) instead of Application Path, you will need to navigate to the Emulation tab, and uncheck Use an emulator to play this game. Navigate to your Steam install folder, select the file named Steam.exe, and click the Open button. The Application Path setting should now be set to something like: ..\Steam\Steam.exe Next, in the Application Command-Line Parameters textbox, enter the following text: -applaunch 226980 "TableName.pxp" Replace TableName in the sample text above with the name of the table you are adding (See below for the list of table names and command line parameters). This parameter will tell Steam to launch the app with the id of 226980, which happens to be Pinball FX2, and it will pass the name of the table we want to run to Pinball FX2. Click the ✔ Ok button and you should now see the game added to your selected platform. Note: Since we are passing the name of the table file to Pinball FX2 through the command line, and not the table file itself, we cannot use the usual Tools -> Import -> ROM Files... method. Images: Pinball FX2 Platform Clear Logo: Adding a Pinball FX2 Table: Table Names and Command-Line Parameters: Note: The names of the tables can be found by navigating to your Pinball FX2 directory within your Steam directory. It will be at the following location: Steam -> SteamApps -> common -> Pinball FX2 -> data_steam Ignore any of the files that are in lower case (game_cfg.pxp, gui.pxp, etc.), as well as the PTSData.dat file, as these are not table files.

    Launchbox True Portable App ?

    Hello all, lurker for a while and decided I better create an account. I did a search and don’t see any mention of a portable app. I been setting up Launchbox/BigBox on my main work PC for testing and configuration. Can I then move this (easily) to my dedicated arcade PC? Is the program a true portable app where I can just copy and paste? Just trying to figure out an easy way to do this.

    Retroarch Mame Disable Info Screens

    Retroarch Version: 1.3.6 Mame Core: MAME 0.174 (The core labeled Arcade (MAME) in the Core Updater) Steps: Open Retroarch and pull up the Main Menu (Press F1 if you are in-game). Load the Mame Core if it is not already loaded (check the bottom left of the screen for the currently loaded core). Navigate to Main Menu -> Quick Menu -> Options. In the Options menu, turn ON the following options (Image 1): Hide nag screen Hide gameinfo screen Hide warnings screen Navigate back to the Main Menu and select Save Current Config. Now, when you play an Arcade game with Retroarch, it will begin loading the rom immediately. Note: The nag screens, warning screens, and info screens are the screens that display before the rom is actually loaded (Image 2). These screens usually require a button press before the process is allowed to continue. These settings will not remove the arcade startup screens, display test screens, RAM check screens, hard disk load screens, etc. Images: Settings to change: Nag screen and gameinfo screen example:
  10. Hi everyone, I am a complete computer and arcade newbie and am having issues installing MAME onto my Launchbox. I get to the install screen (image 1). I click 'OK' then I get to the emulator screen and click "Close" but the emulator doesn't show up. Am i doing something wrong? Also when I try to add a ROM to launchbox nothing shows up either, it doesn't read the zip file. Can someone help me out or link me to a tutorial for loading MAME. I watched the launchbox video for mame but it doesnt tell me how to install the emulator.
