About Me

  1. Hello! I have a license for Launchbox Android, but the app is not playing theme videos and it's not downloading images. For the platform theme videos, they are downloaded - I can see them in the Launchbox video folder, but they aren't playing on Launchbox. For game images, I imported SNES, and Genesis games and download media. But the media doesn't work! I can see file sizes of 0 B in my image folders, but they aren't displaying at all in Launchbox. Please help and let me know if you need more information. Thanks!
  2. Hello, I am a big fan of Launchbox keep up the good work! Not sure how I did it (i have several theories) but i seem to have obtained several duplicate images in many games across platforms, from boxes to screen shots logos etc.... Does anyone recommend any utilities or methods for getting rid of these? Other than starting over again. Thanks!

    Create marquee images from Clear Logos (for use with Pixelcade™ LED Marquee displays) Pixelcade already provides numerous marquee images for many Platforms. But you may come across one or more that are missing. This plugin will create 128x32 marquee-resolution png images using your games existing Clear Logo and place them in your Pixelcade directory**, under the corresponding Platform folder. What’s needed: The plugin files Pixelcade software installed (including LEDBlinky) [https://pixelcade.org] ffmpeg.exe (used to convert/create the marquee images) [https://ffmpeg.org] (included) (optional) An actual Pixelcade™ Marquee display Installing: Download and unblock the plugin zip file (Right-click the zip file, select Properties and check UnBlock) Copy the contents of the zip file into your ../LaunchBox/Plugins/ folder i.e. D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\PixelcadeMarquees\ Setting up the plugin: The default install location for Pixelcade is “C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixelcade”**. If you installed it somewhere else, edit “pixSettings.xml” located in the Plugin folder. (Notepad can be used to edit it) Change the path (line #3) to match your install location. Save and close. <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?> <settings> <pixCadePath>C:\Program Files (x86)\Pixelcade</pixCadePath> </settings> **Note: If your Pixelcade installation is located under “C:\Program Files (x86)”, you will need to have Access Permission to be able to save the images there. The plugin will check for permissions when launched. If it doesn’t have the proper permission, images will be saved to the "Completed" subfolder. i.e. D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\PixelcadeMarquees\Completed\ You will then need to copy them manually when done. The images will be saved to their own Platform subfolder as Pixelcade sees them. (Pixelcade Platform naming conversions are taken from "console.csv" located in your Pixelcade directory.) Example: if your Platform is called "Arcade", images will be saved in the folder "mame". Using the plugin: Start LaunchBox. Select one or more games. Right Click and select Generate Pixelcade Marquee Image Click Create Marquee Game Title vs. ROM name: In most cases LaunchBox passes the games ROM name to LEDBlinky (which in turn passes it to Pixelcade). But for certain games (namely Steam games [and others?]), LaunchBox will pass the games Title. For these, you’ll want to check the box Use game Title for marquee image. If the games Title contains illegal characters (such as : [semicolon]), the image will not be created. When selecting multiple games, if you check Use game Title for marquee image and click Create Marquees, if the game Title contains illegal characters, a message will popup indicating that game will be skipped. You can bypass these messages by checking Skip warnings about Titles with invalid characters. Special thanks to @megashub for coming up with the idea for this plugin and for figuring out how to manipulate and convert the images to make them suitable for Pixelcade™ displays. As always, questions, comments and suggestions are always welcome.
  4. I was helping someone in chat last night and it occurred to me that it's probably worth posting about as a sortof FYI/FAQ for others. The topic was "proper" media naming for automatic matching in LB/BB. I think the majority of the confusion stemmed from the fact that there are multiple ways in which the media can be named and it will still match (which is a really awesome feature, but it's something not everyone is accustomed to); and they're matched on the basis of your own library and your own rom files. Let's say you have an entry in your library that's titled "Final Fantasy VI" and an associated rom file named "FF6(1994)(Squaresoft).zip". In this scenario, your media could be named in any of three ways (actually four if you include appended numbers but we'll get back to that) and it will automatically associate with your LB/BB entry. It could be named based on the library title, the rom file name minus special characters, or the rom file name with all special characters. Final Fantasy VI.jpg - matches the library title; this will work FF6.jpg - matches the rom file name minus special characters; this will work note however that appended numbers (-0#) do not work in this scenario. FF6(1994)(Squaresoft).jpg - matches the rom file name with all special characters; this will work FF6(1994).jpg - includes special characters from the rom file, but not all of them; this will not work FFVI.jpg - doesn't match either the library title or the rom name; this will not work If you're matching by title and the title includes characters that are invalid for Windows file names, that character needs to be replaced by an underscore in your media file name. So if your game title is Super Street Fighter II: The New Challengers, your media would need to be named Super Street Fighter II_ The New Challengers.jpg. This requirement also applies to titles that use an apostrophe, despite the fact that apostrophes are usable in Windows file names. Additionally, for most types of media you can append a number at the end of the file name (formatted as -0#) and they'll match in LB/BB. So if you have 4 images in your Screenshots - Gameplay folder for Final Fantasy VI, they could be named as below and they'll show up in order in LB. Final Fantasy VI-01.jpg Final Fantasy VI-02.jpg Final Fantasy VI-03.jpg Final Fantasy VI-04.jpg For media other than screenshots, doing this will typically cause them to cycle randomly each time you select the library entry. Platform media is unique in that the files can be named anything, they simply need to be in the correct folder. If you want to add in your own platform banner for Super Nintendo, it would need to go in Launchbox -> Images -> Platforms -> Super Nintendo -> Banner. The actual image file could be named anything but so long as it's in that folder it will show up as a banner for SNES. Additionally, you can put in multiple images for platform banners and platform fanart (again, named anything) and it will cycle between them randomly whenever you select the associated platform in BB. Note that this doesn't work for platform clear logos as you have to clear their image cache for them to reset. I think this covers just about everything. If anyone else has anything else to add though, I can add it into the post.

    This theme gives you the ability to specify the startup images you want per game or platform. I created this as I wanted to display controller mapping for each game as it loads to go with the Game Control FS pause theme by @Retro808 and did not see a startup theme that already existed for this. It will display any image you have or create that is game or platform specific when the game loads. It displays the LaunchBox default "Game Over" screen with a clear logo added when a game is exited. All images must be placed in a specific folder structure and follow a standard LaunchBox naming convention to work with this theme. Instruction are provided in the read me text file in the download. The theme uses .png images by default but can easily be modified (1 edit) to use .jpg images.

  8. Hi there, I'm using version 10.14. I imported a bunch of mame games and then did the "Create Missing Arcade/MAME Playlists". All I have is 1 platform: Arcade. And a bunch of different playlist types. Also did finish the "Download Platform/Playlist Theme Videos." Everything looks fine in Launchbox, I can see the clear logos of each playlist, but when I go to Bigbox and hit the "show Playlists" button, nothing shows up. If I use the arrow keys, it feels like I can scroll through them because I hear the sound of scrolling, but the playlist logos are not showing up. I already did refresh Image cache and force all images. Not sure what else to do. Any help is appreciated. See attached screenshot.
  9. I present Arcade media Manager. I preface that I built this for me thus the functionality may not suit everyone's needs but I'm open to feedback. 1.6 Updates Fixed bugs 1.5 Updates Renamed app to Arcade Media Manager based on discussion with Jason Carr Fixed bugs 1.4 Updates Added delete button for images and videos Added multi-image viewing Reworked code to account for images with -01,-02,-03 more effectively and reduce inaccurate results. 1.3 Updates Cleaned up interface Changed color scheme to gray Added support for manuals (adding, viewing) Added support for PinballX media management (this is disabled and will only be enabled by request as I'm not sure anyone else but me wants it and I want this to be Launchbox focused) 1.2 Updates I forget, lol 1.1 Updates: Added platform name to web search and remove "images" as well as open images tab in google Added functionality for videos (snaps and themes) Added ability to copy and paste images from the web (direct image and url) What it does: Select your root LaunchBox Directory. Platforms, Image types, and Game lists will populate. Select a platform and image type. Select a game and see the current image for that title and type. Choosing "Gallery" will show the Box-Front, Marquee, Fanart, and Clear Logo. Drag an image on top of another to replace it or add it to the appropriate folder and the with appropriate name for LaunchBox recognition. Click the "Missing items" filter to only show games that are missing that particular image type and quickly update them by dragging and dropping. Search the web for images for a game title. Open the images directory from the app. Screenshots: To be done (based on feedback): Add functionality for music AMM_1.6.zip
  10. I like to use the 3d box for my view type sp when its empty i usually just switch the regular box to a 3d one in the image types but now its not working instead its deleting the image video showing what I mean
  11. Can someone tell me what game this is? google wont bring up another image with name...Thanks
  12. Hi guys. Hope you're doing well. My question, Is there a way to add a specific background image to a playlist? So for example, say the platform is Arcade and the playlist created in Arcade is for Sega. I would then like a particular Sega background image to appear for just that Sega playlist. Is this a current feature or perhaps planned for a future update? Thank you to all the developers and contributors.
  13. Hi, i'm interested in finding out how to access one of the images (the button layout image) during game play... It would be nice if I could have a hotkey or something that I can click to remind me what button does while i am playing. Is this possible? The image is there, but how do you access it? Thanks!
  14. Hi all, Are anyone interested in doing a task force to restore the damaged covers of some systems or even all systems? I've been doing this for a long time, but there comes a time when time is short. For edit the covers you don't need to be an expert in Photoshop, with just 5 or 6 tools and 3/5 minutes, you already get amazing results. If anyone wants, post here that I can help with tips and material. Below are some recoveries that took a maximum of 3,4 minutes to make. Claudio
  15. Ok So I have launchbox locally installed onto my win10 machine and previously had my images and roms set to my D drive. This was great until i looked at the amount of room the images was taking up. So i decided to move everything to the nas, which gives me the added benefit to playing games from multiple pc. The problem is that after setting up launchbox, the image population takes forever. I have tried maxing out my cache to 4 gb. It still takes about 15 seconds to change games. Would symbolic links fix my issue? if so where would i put the links and for what? Any help appreciated
  16. I have a small problem but something unpleasant I added SNK Neogeo and put a logo image without a background and in bigbox it does not appear but when opening the platform if it appears
  17. Version 1.0.2

    22 downloads

    I put this out there for my fellow Cowboy Bebop fans to have something cool, and to let people out there know, that Bigbox can handle more than just games. That being said it doesn't scrape movies or TV shows vary well. You need to basically find the images yourself and insert them manually, if you were trying to put your movies in Bigbox. Of course, I have gone though the trouble of doing that work for all of us on this one. What I have done here is create a console theme if you will, for setting up your Cowboy Bebop Anime as a device in LaunchBox/BigBox, that has all the images for every single Cowboy Bebop episode/sessions, and that will appear as its own identity along side the rest of your consoles. The collection includes: The Cowboy Bebop Movie, all episode/session titles, fan art for the backgrounds, Art/images for the "Device" selection screen, and the clear logo for the title at the device selection screen (Bigbox will think that "Cowboy Bebop" is a video game system like the rest of your stuff) Lastly I included the Cowboy Bebop Theme song. Just in case you would like it to play in the background when you are choosing what episode/session to watch. It adds a really nice element to the whole setup. This updated version 1.0.2 is as easy as it gets to set up. It contains everything you need neatly packed, and comes with clear and concise instructions on a note pad file in the download. To get the theme song to play in the background place the song in launchbox/music/background/platforms/Cowboy Bebop You can also get the Cowboy Bebop theme song as your main background theme song by copying it to launchbox/music/background/platforms NOTE: place the song below the platforms folder, not inside of it. I provided a screenshot above if your confused. Obviously I can not give you the actual episodes/sessions as they were called, but if your reading this you probably already have them. If you don't, whats wrong with you? Do what LaunchBox/BigBox fans do best, and get yourself a good download/torrent, and dust off this award winning classic! Hope you all enjoy this setup, and I hope more people end up putting stuff like this out there for everyone to get even more out of BigBox. NOTE: If your not a fan of cluttering your game collection things that are not games, then I would just like to remind everyone you can have multiple LaunchBox/BigBox setups, and that they are portable. You could have one for games and another just for your media. While I am on the topic, if you get an Nvida Shield you can stream your LaunBox/BigBox setup to any TV in your house. Obviously this is great for gaming, but also makes the BigBox media setup much more viable too. An excellent tutorial video on this was made by ETA Prime on youtube. I'll leave a link and youtube search instructions, if your interested. You can search youtube for "stream launchbox to nvidia shield" and it will be the first video, or use the link below. Big thanks to everyone who gave this setup a try. I hope you all enjoy! Stay classy retro fans
  18. Hello everyone, Before I continue, thanks to review on this. I have imported a full romset for mame. At the initial import, most of the games were not added with the images because of my low internet connection. After this initial import, I have tryied again and in this second try, 90% of the games were added with the media files. (images, videos, etc). My problem is: When I try to change all games (+3,000) to the group image to "3D boxes" launchbox change it only for some images instead of all: image1 but the images that are not showing the "3D boxes" exists: image2 How can I change the image style for all 3,000 games instead one by one?
  19. 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

  21. Don't know if anybody would be interested in this but I am working on a little plugin/EXE to help sort out Images for games in the Launchbox collection. It's been written in VB.net and there is nothing special about it, it just does the job it was written for, or at least it does on my system. I will say this is my very first post in any forum so please be gentle with me, I have no idea what I am doing here, just making it up as I go...……. WooHoo a you-tube video I am also learning VB.net while writing the plugin, used VB6 in the past and now on VB.net 2017 so a big leap, Would anybody be interested in testing it on there system? If I can figure out how to get it out there. Butler_Soft.zip

    Just thought i'd share these playlist clear logos i created after not being able to find the ones i needed. I used a clear logo template from this site (VIKING) .....thanks These need to be placed in the playlist clear logo folder and renamed to your playlist name (unless you have named them exactly the same as these). Clear logos are as follows : Beat em up, Shoot em up, Shooters, Puzzle, Vs fighters, Sports, Run and Gun, Platformers, Light Gun, .....they all have a silver ring which ive given a retro look This is my first upload so hope you all enjoy....just hoping someone will now create the playlist videos to match ...big thanks to the original creators of the Jukebox/Arcade and Light gun icons
  23. File 2 LB View File This is a basic cmd/bat script. It's main purpose is to copy full sets from a huge source folder. It's only purpose is to copy or move roms and images to your LaunchBox Games or Images folder based on a list. Because the file extension is set up with a wildcard, it can copy or move any file with the same name of the rom. Example being: Super Mario Bros. (World).zip / Super Mario Bros. (World).nes / Super Mario Bros. (World).mpg / Super Mario Bros. (World).png all can be moved/copied because it ignores the extension. Just make sure to run the .bat in the correct source folder, weather it be roms, images, videos ect. This is a .bat so you can view it in notepad if you want to see what exactly it's doing. I provided a readme file with example code I used and will continue to add more platforms. I've expanded upon my initial release of just copying mame roms, to copying or moving many platform roms or images. I know no one wants 30,0000+ mame roms in LaunchBox when most either don't work or a lot are weird mature or mahjong roms There is currently 30 platforms and 2 options for MAME and options for mame bios/device files. File names are based on the No-Intro rom/image sets. Each platform is a list of file names to be moved or copied, similar to a HyperList xml. I'm using file names only based off No-Intro sets, which is what seems to be what Hyperspin uses. So for example if the HyperList xml of Atari 2600 has 667 roms, I've created a file list to copy/move 667 roms. Files will be copied/moved within the same drive. Once it's done you can move/rename the destination folder to where ever you want. Use either .bat file: File 2 LB (Copy).bat File 2 LB (Move).bat Place the .bat file in the folder of the source of your roms, images, or whatever source your needing. Ex: D:\Nintendo Entertainment System Source <-- (Place the .bat here) Run the .bat by double-clicking it. If your running this on the root of your C:\ drive you may need to right click the .bat and "Run as Administrator" Here is an example below: Follow the instructions on screen. Set folder directory D:\LaunchBox\[Games|Images]:Games List the Platform you want to copy or move. Type: LP (This will List Platforms) The following is a list of options to copy/move that platform: 1 = (AAE) 2 = (Atari 2600) 3 = (Atari 5200) 4 = (Atari 7800) 5 = (Atari Jaguar) 6 = (Atari Lynx) 7 = (Capcom Play System) 8 = (Capcom Play System II) 9 = (Cave) 10 = (MAME NO-casino-clones-mahjong-mature-quiz-electro-utilities) 11 = (MAME NO-casino-mahjong-mature-quiz-electro-utilities) 12 = (MAME _NoFiller-Plus 675 Most Popular working roms) 13 = (Mame Bios Pack) 14 = (Mame Devices Pack) 15 = (NEC TurboGrafx-16) 16 = (Nintendo Entertainment System) 17 = (Nintendo Famicom) 18 = (Nintendo Famicom Disk System) 19 = (Nintendo Game Boy) 20 = (Nintendo Game Boy Advance) 21 = (Nintendo Game Boy Color) 22 = (Nintendo GameCube) 23 = (Nintendo Super Famicom) 24 = (Nintendo WiiWare) 25 = (Nintendo 64) 26 = (Sammy Atomiswave) 27 = (Sega 32x) 28 = (Sega CD) 29 = (Sega Dreamcast) 30 = (Sega Genesis) 31 = (Sega Master System) 32 = (Sega Naomi) 33 = (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Type Platform number:16 Read on screen instructions and press any key to start. When it is finished it will create a LOG file in folder of the copied/moved files, and copy/move the roms or images based on the exe to the destination folder (D:\LaunchBox\Games\Nintendo Entertainment System) Read the provided ReadMe.txt file for any other information or how to read the log file. If you have any issue let me know and I'll do my best to answer them here. (As with anything, make backups of your roms and images if you are in fear of them getting deleted) Safe bet is using the Copy Version as it only copy's, but I've used both and had no issues.

    This is a basic cmd/bat script. It's main purpose is to copy full sets from a huge source folder. It's only purpose is to copy or move roms and images to your LaunchBox Games or Images folder based on a list. Because the file extension is set up with a wildcard, it can copy or move any file with the same name of the rom. Example being: Super Mario Bros. (World).zip / Super Mario Bros. (World).nes / Super Mario Bros. (World).mpg / Super Mario Bros. (World).png all can be moved/copied because it ignores the extension. Just make sure to run the .bat in the correct source folder, weather it be roms, images, videos ect. This is a .bat so you can view it in notepad if you want to see what exactly it's doing. I provided a readme file with example code I used and will continue to add more platforms. I've expanded upon my initial release of just copying mame roms, to copying or moving many platform roms or images. I know no one wants 30,0000+ mame roms in LaunchBox when most either don't work or a lot are weird mature or mahjong roms There is currently 30 platforms and 2 options for MAME and options for mame bios/device files. File names are based on the No-Intro rom/image sets. Each platform is a list of file names to be moved or copied, similar to a HyperList xml. I'm using file names only based off No-Intro sets, which is what seems to be what Hyperspin uses. So for example if the HyperList xml of Atari 2600 has 667 roms, I've created a file list to copy/move 667 roms. Files will be copied/moved within the same drive. Once it's done you can move/rename the destination folder to where ever you want. Use either .bat file: File 2 LB (Copy).bat File 2 LB (Move).bat Place the .bat file in the folder of the source of your roms, images, or whatever source your needing. Ex: D:\Nintendo Entertainment System Source <-- (Place the .bat here) Run the .bat by double-clicking it. If your running this on the root of your C:\ drive you may need to right click the .bat and "Run as Administrator" Here is an example below: Follow the instructions on screen. Set folder directory D:\LaunchBox\[Games|Images]:Games List the Platform you want to copy or move. Type: LP (This will List Platforms) The following is a list of options to copy/move that platform: 1 = (AAE) 2 = (Atari 2600) 3 = (Atari 5200) 4 = (Atari 7800) 5 = (Atari Jaguar) 6 = (Atari Lynx) 7 = (Capcom Play System) 8 = (Capcom Play System II) 9 = (Cave) 10 = (MAME NO-casino-clones-mahjong-mature-quiz-electro-utilities) 11 = (MAME NO-casino-mahjong-mature-quiz-electro-utilities) 12 = (MAME _NoFiller-Plus 675 Most Popular working roms) 13 = (Mame Bios Pack) 14 = (Mame Devices Pack) 15 = (NEC TurboGrafx-16) 16 = (Nintendo Entertainment System) 17 = (Nintendo Famicom) 18 = (Nintendo Famicom Disk System) 19 = (Nintendo Game Boy) 20 = (Nintendo Game Boy Advance) 21 = (Nintendo Game Boy Color) 22 = (Nintendo GameCube) 23 = (Nintendo Super Famicom) 24 = (Nintendo WiiWare) 25 = (Nintendo 64) 26 = (Sammy Atomiswave) 27 = (Sega 32x) 28 = (Sega CD) 29 = (Sega Dreamcast) 30 = (Sega Genesis) 31 = (Sega Master System) 32 = (Sega Naomi) 33 = (Super Nintendo Entertainment System) Type Platform number:16 Read on screen instructions and press any key to start. When it is finished it will create a LOG file in folder of the copied/moved files, and copy/move the roms or images based on the exe to the destination folder (D:\LaunchBox\Games\Nintendo Entertainment System) Read the provided ReadMe.txt file for any other information or how to read the log file. If you have any issue let me know and I'll do my best to answer them here.

  25. Hi all, I recently added a large collection of DS games and it scraped many many images... fab. But when I try and add a couple of screenshots to one of them, they're not showing in the Details pain. It seems to be related to them being imported as .bmp files rather than .png files. Dragging them from a web page in Firefox to the Edit window imports then as .bmp even though the original image on the site is a .png. Saving the image manually to the screenshot folder with the right name causes it to show up. Is this a peculiarity of Firefox or a bug in Launchbox? I've done it this way many times in the past but probably on earlier versions of Firefox and definitely earlier versions of LB. Am on LaunchBox 9.1, Windows 10 Home 64bit, Version 1803, OS Build 17134.407 Firefox 63.0.3 The drive they're on my main system SSD as all other images. Any ideas? Is there a way to ensure they are dragged into Launchbox as .png rather than .bmp?
