  1. Hello all, I've been scratching my head with this one for a while now and it's starting to get frustrating, and so I've come to the forums after exhausting all other options that came to my head. Recently, I had the smart idea to upload Launchbox, ROMs and Emulators to my Google Drive, as I heard Launchbox is portable (despite needing to change the paths for the ROMs and Emulators. I did that, got it all set up OK with the filepaths, the ROMs and Emulators are being found just fine. However, I'm getting this error: So, I can see that it seems to be an issue with VLC and the libvlc.dll I can see in the VLC folder, using my google-fu I looked this up and it was recommended to close LB/BB, delete the VLC folder and re-run LB/BB. This creates the folder again, however, the same error still remains. Tried this a few times, even launching as admin to no avail. I've checked the properties of the .dll file as I saw on another post that they can be blocked, this wasn't the case for me I don't see that tickbox. I'm going to wager that LaunchBox cannot find the .dll as if there's a filepath that hasn't been changed, I've searched through every .xml and .config but, alas, I can't find anything. Please help! EDIT: Another interesting development, if I choose Windows Media Player for video playback in Launchbox, the error does not appear, however, no matter the setting in BigBox the error always appears on launch before the start-up video.
  2. Provided below are screenshots of what I'm trying to load onto my LaunchBox. Ever since I updated my software, I get this same error message for every game I try to add on here. Even when I try to manually add my artwork and or metadata I still get error messages. How do I fix this issue? URGENT - bROKEN Trigga

  4. Anyone else get this message? If so, how do I rectify the situation? PAC-MAN laughing at the situation doesn’t help at all :)
  5. Hello All, I'm totally new to all of this so please bare with me. I downloaded Colepipe1978 No Intro Collection. When I load any game from any system I get a loading screen and then I can hear the game in the background but can't see it. Then after about 15 seconds I get one of two errors depending on if it uses Retroarch or Mame. It either says' There was an error waiting for the window "Retroarch ahk_class Retroarch to become active. Please check you have the correct version emulator installerd for this module, followed any notes in the module, and have this emulator working outside your frontend first. Also turn off fade to see if you are hiding your problem, or the same thing but instead of Retroarch it says ahk_class Mame. After the error goes away I can see the game in my taskbar and can click on it and bring it up and play it fine. Can someone please help me figure this out? Thank you for your help.
  6. Hello LaunchBox Community, I am having a problem with the installation of an MS-DOS game called Fallout into LaunchBox. The problem, from what I can tell, is due to DosBox's emulated C: drive not having enough space to install the largest install of the game. It appears that the default disk space is around 260mb where the largest install for the game is around 645mb. I know there are ways to fix this by using DosBox manually, however I could not find a way to expand the disk space while using DosBox through LaunchBox. I have attached a screenshot of the DOS installer showing the "No Drives Available" error when the "HUMONGOUS INSTALLATION" is selected. Any help or advice is be appreciated. Thank You
  7. I get a notification in BigBox every time it plays an MP3 file (audio) for a game as I scroll. The audio plays fine, and if I escape the error, the music continues to play fine. As far as I can tell, nothing is "wrong". But, the error ruins the couch experience quite a bit. Is there a way to hide this error vs fixing it? And/Or any ideas on possible fixes? Need more Information? PS: Not sure if this is were I should post, I don't think its a "BigBox" error, its somehow related to the custom theme I think, but I posted here, let me know if it should be moved/posted elsewhere.

  8. I recently decided to take a leap to 4k and added one as the third monitor on my build. LaunchBox worked fine when Windows 10 had the 4k set as my primary monitor. Unfortunately, it started totally bugging out when I decided to make my 1080p144Hz monitor the default in W10 and now the program can't decide what in the hell it wants to do. (Pictures below.) 4k fullscreen decides to bug out into my 1080p and covers the taskbar, 4k windowed decides to cut off half the program, and 1080p fullscreen gets incredibly cramped. I feel like I recall an option in LB to tell it what monitor to start up on, but I can seem to find it at the moment. Any ideas?

  11. When I go to the moderation page in games DB, I get this error: Runtime Error Description: An application error occurred on the server. The current custom error settings for this application prevent the details of the application error from being viewed remotely (for security reasons). It could, however, be viewed by browsers running on the local server machine. Details: To enable the details of this specific error message to be viewable on remote machines, please create a <customErrors> tag within a "web.config" configuration file located in the root directory of the current web application. This <customErrors> tag should then have its "mode" attribute set to "Off". Notes: The current error page you are seeing can be replaced by a custom error page by modifying the "defaultRedirect" attribute of the application's <customErrors> configuration tag to point to a custom error page URL.
  12. Final Burn alpha worked for me months now not I come back after along pause and try the new version launchbox 7.9 and I get an error from the emulator. This error only happends when I run the game on launchbox it does not happened when I run without it.. I notice the importing of games works differently where now I can combine all games with similar names into a single file, this is not good cause Arcade games encryption must have the same name from a different region for it to work!!! I also noticed games are divided into different categories I hope because of this reason sets are not been seen by the emulator.
  13. Hey everyone. So I recently updated to the latest beta release of Launchbox (Beta 7) and when Launchbox was initializing, it got stuck at "Caching Playlists", which was one of the new features Jason implemented for this beta I believe. It was stuck for well over 5 minutes and I couldn't close the program unless I used task manager to end the task. Afterward I tried relaunching it and that time it loaded, however it continues to get stuck the majority of times right at "Caching Playlists". It's also worth noting that I received an error stating that my metadata.xml file is corrupted and recommending me to re open Launchbox to avoid other issues. I've received this error twice now. So far Launchbox keeps getting stuck and occasionally I get the same error that my metadata.xml file is corrupted. Launchbox is a great front end, and I thank Jason for developing this awesome program and everyone else who contributes to the community. I just need help with this one issue. Please, any help would be greatly appreciated. Here is the error: Metadata.xml file is corrupted. Please try closing and restarting LaunchBox. App: LaunchBox Version: 7.10-beta-7 Type: System.Exception Site: System.Data.DataSet () Source: Unbroken.LaunchBox at () at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Search.LocalDb.get_DataSet() at () at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Search.LocalDb.GetPlatforms() at (String , Boolean ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Search.LocalDb.GetValidPlatformName(String name, Boolean officialOnly) at (PlaylistGame , Dictionary2& , Dictionary2& , Dictionary2& ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.PlaylistGame.GetGame(Dictionary2& platformFileNames, Dictionary2& platformTitles, Dictionary2& platformRoughTitles) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.Playlist.<>cDisplayClass156_0.<GetGamesManual>b5(PlaylistGame g) at System.Linq.Enumerable.WhereSelectEnumerableIterator2.MoveNext() at System.Linq.Enumerable.WhereEnumerableIterator1.MoveNext() at System.Collections.Generic.List1..ctor(IEnumerable1 collection) at System.Linq.Enumerable.ToListTSourceat Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.Playlist.GetGamesManual(Boolean sort) at (Playlist , Boolean ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.Playlist.GetGames(Boolean sort) Best wishes.

  14. LaunchBox Version 7.9 running on Windows 7 Ultimate x64 I receive the error message every time I open LaunchBox after I have added my MAME rom collection. I have repeated the same process twice. 1.Install MAME 0.185 in LaunchBox. 2.Launch BigBox 3.Play games and have fun 4. Close BigBox/Launchbox 5. Reopen LaunchBox or BigBox and receive corruption errors. The error is as follows: "The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable. App: LaunchBox Version: 7.9 Type: System.IO.IOException Site: Void WinIOError(Int32, System.String) Source: mscorlib at System.IO.__Error.WinIOError(Int32 errorCode, String maybeFullPath) at System.IO.FileStream.Init(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, Int32 rights, Boolean useRights, FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize, FileOptions options, SECURITY_ATTRIBUTES secAttrs, String msgPath, Boolean bFromProxy, Boolean useLongPath, Boolean checkHost) at System.IO.FileStream..ctor(String path, FileMode mode, FileAccess access, FileShare share, Int32 bufferSize) at System.Xml.XmlDownloadManager.GetStream(Uri uri, ICredentials credentials, IWebProxy proxy, RequestCachePolicy cachePolicy) at System.Xml.XmlUrlResolver.GetEntity(Uri absoluteUri, String role, Type ofObjectToReturn) at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.OpenUrlDelegate(Object xmlResolver) at System.Runtime.CompilerServices.RuntimeHelpers.ExecuteCodeWithGuaranteedCleanup(TryCode code, CleanupCode backoutCode, Object userData) at System.Threading.CompressedStack.Run(CompressedStack compressedStack, ContextCallback callback, Object state) at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.OpenUrl() at System.Xml.XmlTextReaderImpl.Read() at System.Xml.XmlReader.MoveToContent() at System.Data.DataSet.ReadXml(XmlReader reader, Boolean denyResolving) at System.Data.DataSet.ReadXml(String fileName) at (DataManager , String ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.DataManager.LoadGames(String filePath) at (DataManager , Boolean , Boolean ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.DataManager.Load(Boolean settingsOnly, Boolean forceReloadAll) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Data.DataManager..ctor(Boolean bare, Boolean settingsOnly) at (String[] ) at Unbroken.LaunchBox.Desktop.Program.Main(String[] args) Recent Log: 3:51:29 PM Exception" Also after this happens, Windows will not allow me access to my MAME roms directory or my MAME UI directory. The Windows error reads as follows: "Location is not available G:\LaunchBox\Emulators\mame\roms is not accessible The file or directory is corrupted and unreadable" I have been enjoying LaunchBox so much. I build arcade cabinets and love this software. I can provide you with any more information that you may need. I hope we can find a solution. Thanks in advance.
  15. Hey there, I had to re install my OS and tried to redownload my License.xml from the mail I got. It should be valid until 4 November 2017, but If i click on the link in the mail I get this: Is the link just expired? Or is it not possible to re-download my license? Thank you for you time!
  16. After following the LaunchBox Tutorial on how to set up Daphne with Launchbox, I kept running into this problem every time I tried to launch any of the games. "Daphne got an error and that rom xxxx couldn't be found in .../roms/xxxx. " After re-installing Daphne several times and spending hours on wiki and forums. I found no answers. - This is how I solved the problem. - First, I would recommend you to complete all the steps given in the LaunchBox tutorial on how to install Daphne. After you have downloaded your games and set up Daphne. Open the DaphneLoader.exe within your Daphne folder, choose any of the legally obtainable games (I chose Astron Belt) and press Start! After this you might be prompted that you will need to enable download again. If you do, go to your preferences by clicking on File > Preferences And enable these three options. Click Apply and Close the window. When back into the Daphne Loader window, Press Start again and Daphne will download the missing files you require. For me it was a 94kb download size. Press Start again and Daphne will prepare your game. After I did all of this, all the games started working withing Launchbox. ** Remember to go back and Disable the three options in Preferences when you are done. I am still a Newbie to Daphne, but I hope this may help anyone who had the same struggle as I had. Thanks!
  17. Anyone know how to get around that error "can't reserve 512 Mbytes of memory"... I'm trying to set up Sammy Atomiswave and not having much luck. I've gotten this error with Dreamcast and Naomi.. but it's totally random. Normally quitting Launchbox and restarting it fixes it.... NOT this time.. Not with Sammy it seems. I'm running Win 10 with 16 GB of Ram and GTX1070
  18. Every time I use the launcher, whether adding game titles to the collection, or syncing from the launcher to the site it comes up with the error Could not retrieve filter values: internal server error. I am on windows 8.1, I do not believe this to be a hardware error. I really do not know much about this program, other than the game titles I see in the ps2 section.
  19. Hi, Here's what I';m using: LaunchBox 7.7 RetroArch 1.4.1 x64 Windows 10 x64 Issue: After importing ROMs across various systems, some of these systems fail to launch RetroArch correctly. For example, the Sega Genesis ROMs all work fine using the retroarch option. However, SNES ROMs, NeoGeo and a few others all fail. The symptom of the failure is a brief screen flicker (milliseconds) and then... nothing! Nothing launches. No Error messages. This is what the configuration should be translating to as a command line launch command.: E:\EMU\RetroArch>retroarch.exe -L "cores\bsnes_balanced_libretro.dll" "E:\ROMs (CDS Favourites)\snes\Super Tennis (USA).zip" From a command prompt this works fine; hence my belief that this is a Launchbox problem (probably the way I have configured it) Help Needed: If this is recognisable to anyone and they have a quick answer, please let me know. However, I am interested in being able to debug and help others. To be able to do that, I need to see the log of what LaunchBox is trying to run, but despite searching I cannot find how to turn on any form of error log for LaunchBox. Because the command line approach works OK, the problem seems to be with Launchbox and what it is sending as a command to RetroArch. I just don't know how to see the ACTUAL (vs intended via config) commands that LaunchBox sends. Thanks in advance!
  20. I have been working around the clock night/day trying to tweak lb/bb like it is on my alienware laptop vs my console. and then i noticed on my console my user/windows folders were missing preventing me from being able to set bigbox up through my kodi build. days i tried to figure it out until some of you said it was absolutely fine to relocate my entire launchbox folder to where-ever. Great! now kodi was able to locate lb/bb exe and once again run. NEW ISSUES AND HEADACHES! Now keep in mind I only relocated kodi my emus/roms never ever moved from their location. Even though I never add them to lb I always copy roms from original location... I have 5 not 1 or 2... but 5! emus that won't run at all since relocating launchbox but before they were running perfectly! I tried deleting them and reimporting them but Launchbox is a smart girl... they still had same error... I was then told by 2 powerhouses of Launchbox dev team to get notepad++ and edit my xml files to fix the issues! I was already writing code at the time for new trainers/emus on my original xbox console... so me Having OCD/ADD/ and ADULT ADHD makes it difficult to focus all at once... Anyways I started editing the xml [wrong xml file] in launchbox and after i realized i was messing up I just stopped and put everything like it was... My the screenshots will show several things The way my brain is programmed you can tell me something all day and i'll either get it or miss it.. but if you show me i'll perfect it instantly... I've looked at all the tuts and none of them showed any issues with emus breaking and how to correct the paths once broken to fix. Can someone anyone please make a short tut on how to properly edit the correct xml file to fix my broken emus... I have a huge day this weekend to demo my work for lots of friends/family and I don't want it to be half done and...I will also be promoting Launchbox/Bigbox and it's amazing dev team like I constantly do on social media but in person. lastly project64 doesn't have same error as other emus but it does have one as shown in ss... it does work just fine manually loading roms as shown in ss. 1. BROKEN EMUS ON LB 2. ERROR I GET WHEN TRYING TO LAUNCH A GAME FROM ONE OF THE BROKEN EMUS 3.SCREENSHOT OF NOTEPAD++ 4. A NEW FOUND ERROR WITH PROJECT64 WHEN ATTEMPTING TO PLAY A GAME THROUGH LB 5. PROOF THAT THE EMU WORKS FINE ON IT'S OWN OUTSIDE OF LB?!
  21. I was recently updating my launchbox and my pc was bumped during the update and my computer shut down! When I tried launchbox I got this error and I'm not sure what to do. 1.Should I try to restore to a previous version? 2. How do I restore to a previous version? 3. Install a new launchbox and move the files over? Please help!

  23. been trying to figure out why this happened bigbox will also not open the startup video just keeps looping
  24. Hi Everyone, Just discovered Launch Box and I'm impressed with what I have seen so far but I wanted to give it a try with my Steam games before I attempt to import the many Emulation Roms that I have. But right away I have run into a big issue. I followed this video tutorial below but my steam profile page does not list my name in the adress like in the video. It goes more like this: http://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198005098215/ Instead of: http://steamcommunity.com/id/SentaiBrad Like with Sentai Brad's is in the video. So I put my name into Launchbox anyway and it finds a bunch of games but only a few of them are correct, most of them are not even in my steam library and most of them don't even come up at all (many of them well known games). I also just tried putting the numbers into Launchbox but it tells me that nothing is found and it cant continue, also I made sure my profile is public so that cant be the problem. How do I fix this please?
