About Me

  1. Hello! I started setting up LB for the first time this week, and all but two of my systems have imported as expected. After I import Commodore 64 and Sinclair ZX Spectrum the copying of files and scanning for metadata goes as expected, but the platform is never created. I don't see them on my platform list or when I go to Manage Platforms. All the games are in my LaunchBox/Games folder for the respective platforms but there is no evidence of the platform in LB's UI. I have not allowed all of the metadata and images to download completely as I am importing several platforms and don't want to w
  2. Edit: (June 28, 2021) beta version 0.02. Now supported in LaunchBox Version 11.3 and up. This plugin will import “Custom” made MAME xml files. With this plugin, you can import games from a Custom xml file into any Platform (new or existing) and set the Emulator for the imported games to whatever you want, regardless of the Platforms default Emulator (if importing to an existing one). If you import them into a new Platform, the “Scrape As” for the Platform will be set to “Arcade”. The xml file MUST be laid out in a standard MAME Machines format. MAME’s softlist xml files are f
  3. having issues when uploading my PSP ROM's to launchbox where its not differentiating between the files internals and the actual game therefore not uploading the game properly. any help with this?
  4. I've been trying to import my steam games in launchbox but I keep on getting this error message: " Your account could not be accessed " . I've done it many times on other pcs and never got this problem... I've tried it 10 minutes ago on my laptop and it worked fine i imported all my games. The problem occurs only on one of my pcs. I need help please.
  5. When Importing modern games and downloadable content add-ons I'm having a problem in which Launch box is unable to recognize DLC and group it with the games that they belong with, instead it imports DLC as separate games (DLC shows no data or pictures, games do). The files that I have for the X360 XBLA (Xbox 360 Live Arcade) don't have file extensions, so that may make it harder for LaunchBox to import the content properly. I also thought my issue might be caused by having different file names of games and DLC. Is there a proper format for DLC? This is an example of how I have mine labele
  6. Greetings - If this post is somewhere, I apologize but have not been able to find a similar issue posted. Recently, when I try to import, Epic, Origin, or Steam, it locks up after downloading pictures at "Searching for and deleting duplicate pictures" - I've waited hours to see if it was just taking a while, but never gets passed that portion. Any help would be appreciated. I am running the latest build. Thanks, Thirst
  7. I'm trying to import my steam library into launchbox but it's only showing 4 of my games out of 120 What i've done is: - Import Steam Games - Entered Steam Community ID from the screenshot - Entered my steam API key - Platform : Windows - Search for game information in the local metadata database - All Images Selected : Shows me 4 games
  8. I'm having an odd issue with Launchbox. In general had no problems but this specific game (Chaos Heat) will not work in Launchbox no matter what. It works without a problem in MAME when the application is used directly, but when the CHD (this is a CHD-only game) is imported to Launchbox, a couple of key things go wrong. First, the metadata does not get properly configured. The game is in LaunchBoxDB, but it is not recognized as a valid game and the name does not even set properly (screenshots below). I can manually go in and set the name and import the metadata after the fact, but this does no
  9. The new steam client is a disaster so I have found my way here! Your video tutorial is out of date and the forum links in the import wizard don't work so please help... I've used the Steam "profile" number as the identifier as the URL has changed since the tutorial was made I have created API key I have made my profile and games list public The import wizard says my account could not be accessed. Any workaround for this please?
  10. Hi! I'm completely new to LaunchBox and I'm having some trouble with importing my steam games. I have made sure my profile is public and I've typed my id correctly, I even tested importing from a friends account and it still won't work. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
  11. I'm not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this or not. But anyways, I'm missing 28 games from my ROMs folder. These ROMs have already been sorted out by myself as 'parents only' (from m HyperSpin set), and I'd have liked to have all of them imported to Launchbox (with or without meta data), but it seems that if a MAME ROM is not in the database, it is not imported. I don't like that - if a ROM is going to be skipped like that, it would be nice if Launchbox would at the very least create a list of games that were skipped, so that I can then add the games manually, and enter in t
  12. I have found a few threads from last year that provide a laborious workaround for this, but I can't find anything recent. Does this still require a kludgy hack? I have most of my games installed on a removable drive. Launchbox is on the same drive. I can point it at the correct folder for my DOSBox games, and it works fine, but it still seems to only look for games that Windows knows about and has in the Start menu. I have quite a few games from GOG, and a fair number installed from physical media. They are all nicely stored in specific folders, but DOSBox doesn't know they are there
  13. When I import MAME as an Arcade platform with a full set, it parses the file names and I can see that the Neo Geo games from the set are going to be imported, but when the import is complete none of them show up. Anyone else notice that the Neo Geo games don't show up under Arcade? Am I doing something wrong?
  14. Hi guys, I had to rebuild my LB library from scratch lately and did import my mame 0.194 merged set. Thing is, I usually had a last "screen" with several checkboxes allowing me to avoid importing clones, etc. This screen doesn't shown anymore and I now end up with all these terrible clones, adult games, gamble games etc. (8500+ games in total). Any clue how I can fix this ? thanks !!!
  15. Hello, I recently imported a full MAME set. During the process I selected to use games in their current location and to remove duplicates, hacked, mature, casino etc. This has left me with a significantly smaller list which I prefer. My question is I want to free up space on my hard drive and would like to remove the games that were not imported to Launchbox due to them either not working properly, not matching my preferred region, and/or my personal exclusion preferences. Is there an easy way to identify the ROMs in my current folder that were not imported to Launchbox for deletion (
  16. Hi, I've been importing 630 Mame games through Launchbox (the All Killer No Filler list to be precise) but 5 specific ones are not added to my library when I try to import them: - Battle Rangers - Caveman Ninja - Guerilla War - LIght Bringer - Spot Does anyone have an idea why and how to fix this? Thanks!
  17. I have been using Retropie but now moving to a PC based system and purchased BigBox.. Is there an easy way to use my retropie drive? I have over 2TB on an external drive complete with metadata and artwork.. Would love to be able to reuse them all.. I can import the ROMs but the drive is full of all the other stuff retropie uses and would be a PITA to clean it all out..
  18. The steam import app is not working!!! I try importing games and it just hangs in the screen forever, not sure why since it was working without any issues
  19. For some reason Im stuck at the screen that says please wait while parsing your steam account. How can I fix this? Its been there for about 15 minutes.
  20. I'm trying to use ExoDos and nothing works!!! I used Dosbox as a emulator and imported the roms folder but no games where imported.
  21. Anyone else have this issue? I can no longer drag a rom (or any file) into LB to start the import dialog. (i just get the 'can't move that here circle stop sign symbol thing') I can still import them through the menu though it's just slightly annoying as I do alot of swapping. B
  22. Hi Guys, First of all I'm just starting out, so still a lot to learn, but love bigbox, it's amazing and the tutorials help immensely! Was wondering how you all go about organizing roms and deciding what to import? Since I'm just getting into things I like to have a good setup from the get-go. Right now I have all roms in the appropriate folders like Nintendo Entertainment System, Super Nintendo Entertainment System, Sega Genesis and so on. But within these folders I have rom versions from usa, europe, japan. Some games are region specific single games but a lot of games
  23. Hi guys, I just bought Launchbox yesterday, It was a bit problematic setting it up to work with my retroarch installation (problem was that I had checked to unpack zipped files first, wasn't necessary and gave me lot of crashes). My Problem now: I have snaps video files in a directory for the roms (they have same name as the zipped roms), now I want to associate these files to corresponding Roms now catalogued by Launchbox. When I do a Mass Editing and choose video path, I cannot mass change that, it actually let me choose the directory and single files not just the directory and let it
  24. When try to import WiiU ROMs in Loadiine format, I found that Launchbox list every single files in the game folder. How can I tell Launchbox to import *.rpx files ONLY? I didn't found such settings. Example: importing two games: Mario Kart 8 and Xenoblade Chronicles X This is what happened when I try to import ROMs using `Scan for Added ROMs`, there're only 2 roms, but launchbox listed like 25k files, the window freeze for 5+ seconds if I try to select and delete some of them. I mean, seriously? Launchbox even list *.tga, *.h264, *.svg, *.url, *.xml files. I don
  25. Hi all, Just want to start off by saying how great I think Launchbox is! It has really changed my life with retro gaming. I have a quick question regarding MAME Arcade roms. Usually I have no problem importing these roms into Launchbox via the regular import wizard, however some of my roms are broken up into rom sets so they will be like gametitle1.zip gametitle2.zip etc.. I can get these to run from the MAME Emulator gui but when I try to import them via Lunchbox they wont work.. Any ideas? Cheers
