  4. Hi everyone. Hoping one of the arcade machine users can help a brother out... I finally got Killer Instinct (Steam Version) working with my arcade controls using an app called x360ce. (An app for mapping an input device as an xbox 360 controller) I set LB to use the .exe file and imported it as a windows game rather than importing it as a steam game if that matters to assist in providing a solution (although I don't imagine it will but you never know...) So when I launch Killer Instinct, x360ce automatically opens without any manual intervention (I don't have to set it up as an additional app or anything in LB) but when I quit Killer Instinct x360ce remains open and messes with the order of my joysticks for games that use retroarch. I have 0 familiarity with auto hotkey scripts or creating .bat files and am wondering if someone could help me figure out a way to auto close x360ce after I exit Killer Instinct. I am also open to using an alternative app...I have tried joytokey and it gave me endless problems and I couldn't get it working consistently (and I feel like I am pretty tech savvy) Thanks for any help.
  5. Hi, as the title suggest, I've installed Retroarch and have Mame 2010 roms working flawlessly within Retroarch. Unfortunately though, when i try and get this operating within Launchbox it doesn't work. I have followed all instructions and have imported the Rom in and set up the Emulator as Retroarch, with the correct emulator application path. The associated platform is Arcade with the mame2010_libretro core. As above, when i click play on the game within LB, nothing happens, when i right click on the game and select Launch with Retroarch and select the core, again nothing happens apart from the cursor spinning for a few seconds. Been messing with this for days now and its really starting to frustrate me. Can anyone help?
  6. Hey all, After restarting my LaunchBox build from numerous drives, I've been going through some type of time consuming hassle regarding game images. After bruteforce importing some ROMs, some of the ROMs Images from the games database will look like this: I've found one way to fix this, but it was the time consuming way. Going from one game to another, removing all images and redownloading them after. Is there a way to do this with the Bulk Edit Wizard? Or do I stick to the way I've been using for a while? Thanks.

    Same game importing

    Hey all, I just want to know if LaunchBox has a feature which allows duplicates of the same games. For example: I have an english version of a ROM and I also have another ROM but in Japanese, how am I able to import both of them separately? The reason why I'm posting this is because I had previous experiences of trying to import two versions of the same game, only to find out that LaunchBox detected the ROM as a duplicate and didn't import it, with me being left with the original english version of the ROM. Any help is appreciated.
  9. Hey all. Recently I've ran into a problem while trying to import games with my selection of images. Right after the game finishes importing, an error shows up: The message reads : An error occurred while attempting to search the local metadata database for ROM file: C:\LaunchBox/Games/Nintendo 64/Super Mario 64 (USA).z64 After keeping the imported games despite the error message, the game shows up without any type of image. Then for a second route, which is trying to search the LocalDB through the imported game, this shows up: Even AFTER the game title was named correctly!!! This has been happening for a few days now, and I am at a loss here. Is this a problem on my end or does this have something to do with the software? And to note, the game is playable, so there's nothing damaged in the ROM file, and it's a fresh installment of 11.4 Please assist me.
  10. Hello everyone Good evening! I would like to ask if there is a way to put a warning before running any game to apply any custom settings? Take for example the game "Burnout: Dominator" from PS2, which uses PCSX2 and in the game, you have to press F9 so that you can run without any problems, and it would be something like this: "During the game, press the F9 button for the game to run perfectly" (And then there's the OK button where the game starts). I have already added the extra command "--cfgpath = inis \ BurnoutDominator" that makes the emulator make the customized configuration, but because it is about pressing a button in the middle of the game, I am afraid to forget after a while.
  11. I just bought premium and I've been trying to get bigbox working correctly on this crt. But the text is too small is there any way to change it?(yes I know this isn't the default theme but the same thing happens when using default) Pic of text The only way I've been able to make it better is my plugging in a separate lcd monitor, using that as the main monitor and then having bigbox go on the crt. Any ideas?
  12. I am curently running Mame version 0.139. I tried using retroarch for Mame but i always ran into sound and video issues but it opened all my games fine with launchbox! I decided to just use the stand alone emulator but now when I import my games the games they don't open. Nothing happens. If i launch the games inside of the emulator itself the games boot just fine. What should I do?
  13. I enabled Leaderboard charts and made an account and everything on my MAME cabinet. However, I now noticed I can no longer enable cheats in some games like the Mortal Kombat series. The cheats worked fine before this. I am assuming this is because we don't want cheaters to have high scores on the leaderboards. However, there are plenty of times where I am playing by myself or with a friend, and I would like to enable cheats. I thought the way LaunchBox handled it was I could choose if I wanted to enable cheats, but disable my score that session from the leaderboards. I don't see any way to do that. Can anyone lend me a pointer? Also, if you HAVE to disconnect from the leaderboards in order to use cheats again, is there any way to connect and disconnect in Big Box mode?
  14. Any ideas on shutting down my arcade and not having windows mess up my player order and make me reconfigure my settings and also putting the computer to sleep but opening the sign in screen using the arcade controls
  15. Hi there everyone, I am trying to run Big Box and open a game but whenever Retroarch opens, my bigbox starts to lock itself in front of everything. I can't get to the retroarch screen which is really annoying. I run Bigbox in fullscreen mode for anyone wondering. I tried some stuff already but that didn't work either. If anyone could help me, that would be great.
  16. Hello everyone just your usual scrub here, Right now I am trying to have Mednafen load just the cue file in launchbox because that emulator runs everything extremely clean, how would I go about doing that exactly? Is it a setting on the emulator or launchbox and if it is launchbox what exactly is command line I should input so that only the .cue file is read related to the game.

  18. I have tried everything to get BigBox running properly and I cannot figure it out , themes seem to change nothing and no videos are displayed aswell. It looks like garbage and it sucks I payed 50$ for something that won't work correctly. LaunchBox_Big_Box_2019-04-17_18-21-01.mp4
  19. (Forgive any formatting issues, it's my first time posting here.) Hi there, recently I have been having some weird and frustrating issues with both LaunchBox and BigBox. Launchbox itself works perfectly, however it immediately freezes whenever I try to go to options. BigBox, however, I can hardly get to launch. I see the splash screen and it just sits there. Any clicks on it and it will show up as not responding, in the task manager it starts at ~27% then almost immediately drops to 0% CPU while the whole time still using almost 1GB RAM. If I just leave it alone it takes roughly 10 minutes to finally launch. I have my installation on my SSD, to try and troubleshoot I installed it on my 1TB HDD and only imported 2 games, still the same thing. I was wondering if anyone else had encountered this issue before? What I'm running: Windows 10 Pro Intel i7-9700K 16GB DDR4 RAM GeForce GTX 1080 FTW 512GB NVME (Windows) 256GB SSD (LaunchBox) 1TB HDD (Misc) 4,500+ games Running just the stock theme
  20. Hi, I am looking for a way to auto save high scores and for them to auto loads when I play the game. I'm not sure of anything to do as I can have save states but I feel like there must be something someone has made that can do this as I want to have my whole retro machine never needing a keyboard to do anything once I am happy on where it is at. I don't want something that will save all the time where if i was playing double dragon I wouldn't want it to save the game play just the high scores saved as if I need to save the games like on zelda link to the past I would be able to save the game and the rom does that for me. I guess i want the same thing just to save the high scores so me and others can see who's doing the best etc. Any help would be great thank you
  21. Hi, just purchased BigBox but I have really slow and jerky interface performance. Running Windows 10, 16GB RAM, i5 6400, Vega 56, SSD. Thanks!
  22. I'm having trouble setting up BizHawk as my emulator. Every time I set it up, it opens BizHawk but it doesn't open the ROM, this is pretty annoying as I'm trying to be more organized with my computer.
  23. Is there a way to make launchbox or bigbox look like steam? Like not the steam box art mode, but just the default library, i'd want the categories or platforms across the top, and the games from the selected category running down the left side, and the game info and screenshots where the game grid usually is.
  24. Hi, I seem to have accidentally created an “All” platform category, and cannot seem to get rid of the duplicate. Right clicking on either one just gives “grayed-out” options. Cannot delete or change either one. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have tried using backup xml files but do not think I fully know how to use it properly since I do not haves LaunchBox.xml file in the root folder. I am running latest version of LaunchBox. Any advice would be appreciated.
  25. Hi, I'm having trouble with FBA in launchbox. There isn't a command line in the box where you edit it, but this window keeps popping up every single time I try to play an arcade game. Anybody know how to fix this?
