I need a little help understanding how to import the exoDos release into Launchbox correctly. I know that it is supposed to be a self contained DosBox/ScummVM launcher with LB included but I already have an existing LB/BB installation with MAME and Consoles. Can someone please either direct me to a guide for: 1) which build I need to use to selectively install only the games I want (lite or full ver. 5) 2) how to import them into LB/BB correctly (I'm fine getting all the metadata and box art etc later using LB and Emu databases)
I'm not sure if this will help anyone but this is how I got the eXoDOS 2.0 collection with all inform, images and play function into the current 7.5 version of LaunchBox. The "Export to Launchbox" feature in MEAGRE does not work with Launch 6.0 and up (from what I know). This install only works if you have no DOS games currently installed, make sure to have your eXoDOS 2.0 collection folder in its permanent resting place before setting everything up. If you have input please feel free I am a Noob. 1) Download the eXoDOS 2.0 collection 2) run the Setup eXoDOS.bat in the eXoDOS folder and complete the setup. 3) After the setup is complete run MEAGRE check that is everything is running, correct and all info and images are present 4) Download Mergre 18.104.22.168 from https://sites.google.com/site/meagrefrontend/download 5) Replace the MEAGRE.exe with the new 22.214.171.124 (the MEAGRE.exe from archive.org is the old version) 6) Download a copy of Launchbox 5.7 (this is the only version that worked for me) 7) Install Launchbox 5.7 in a temporary folder, make sure it works 9) Open MEAGRE from the MEAGRE.exe 10) With MEAGRE open Go to Edit>Export to Launchbox 11) Find the LaunchBox.xml in your Launchbox 5.7 folder click Open 12) After the import is complete go to your Launchbox 5.7 folder find the "LaunchBox.xml" right click edit, once open find (cltrl f) "ImagesReorganizedFor5" change the "<ImagesReorganizedFor5>true</ImagesReorganizedFor5>" to "<ImagesReorganizedFor5>false</ImagesReorganizedFor5>" and save. 13) Open Launch Box 5.7, the games, info and images should be present. If not Refresh the images. 14) Upgrade Launch Box 5.7 to the current version of Launchbox (right now it is 7.5) 15) Go to the now upgraded Launch Box 5.7 directory folder and under Data\Platforms folder move the DOS.xml and PC Booter.xml into your current version of Launchbox Data\Platforms folder. 16) Now go to the upgraded Launch Box 5.7 directory folder and go to the Images folder move the DOS and PC Booter folders into the Images folder in your current version of Launchbox. 17) Open your current 7.5 version of Launchbox and all 5193 games should be installed and working under the DOS and PC Booter PLATFORM. With me I left the dos games zipped and they worked great, not ever game has box art but all have at least screen caps and more than enough information for you to know if you want to try it out. If you to want avoid installing DOS games all day this is as easy as I think it can get.
