  1. I'm having some trouble getting Kronos to properly function with Launchbox. I originally had it working well enough for one troublesome STV arcade game (Cotton 2, since the music is fixed in Kronos as opposed to MAME) but I realized that when I tried to add more MAME-incompatible games it just loads whatever game was set up to load last in the Kronos UI instead of the game it should be loading. For example, Cotton 2 only worked because I had loaded it previously with the UI but if I change it to be anything else it will always load that game instead of the one I am wanting. I can't find anything conclusive after doing a bunch of searching and my current config is shown here: Is this just a command-line issue or is Kronos not able to play STV games via command line? If it is not possible, does anybody have any good alternatives they recommend for STV games on Launchbox? If it is possible, is there a way to set the bios region on a per-game basis? (US bios for games that support it, JP for ones that don't)
  2. Hi everyone! I´m trying to use launchbox to execute PS3 games with Rpcs3. I add the rom using the path of the EBOOT.BIN file, under "dev_hdd0\game\Name of the game\PS3_GAME\USRDIR\EBOOT.BIN" but this doesn´t work. If i open that bin file using the RPCS3 emulator all works ok, but if i point that path with launchbox to open with the RPCS3 emulator, nothing happens, it shows "Failed to mount disc directory for the disc game (Code of the game)" Does anyone knows how to launch rpcs3 games with Launchbox? There is a command line parameter or something? Thanks in advance!
  3. Hey there, I noticed Launchbox by default offers ScummVM 2.0.0 included. Any plans on updating it to the newest release version of 2.1.2? Main reason of asking is that this seems to support adding new games I wasn't able to before and there is some bug fixes associated to it. Just curious! @Jason Carr Thanks!
  4. Version 1.0.0


    Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! The arcade platform obviously doesn't come in a box, so this time, I decided to slap together some footage I found from across the web, put it together in a solid piece and bring it to you all to enjoy. I don't take any credit for any of the rendering at all, just the editing.
  5. Version 1.0.0


    Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! My work blends a few influences relevant to the platform while showcasing the machine itself along with the games the platform ran: 1) Music made using sounds available on the platform (where possible) 2) The platform's boot screen (if possible) 3) Commercial influences usually in the form of the platform's marketing jingle. 4) The platform's packaging. In this way, the platform video itself gives an accurate interpretation of what the platform is, was marketed as, and what it looked and sounded like. In this video, the beginning displays the NTSC box design that expands into the PAL version to display game play.

    Images too big

    Sorry for my level of english but i have a problem that´s bothering me since some time and i dont find any way to solve. When i play a game from launchbox or bigbox i get the start image too big and when it close it happens too (this is the image i get when i close a game its the same size wehn i play one) well i assume it was normal but recently i donwload pause menu theme and when i put pause in the game i get an image too big to see it comfortly (In this moment is when i realize than my problem wasnt normal because i see image of how it should looks) there is some way to fix this? Thanks for the help i hope it can fix it
  7. Can't seem to find the answer to this, though I found a very similar post, that seems to have gone unanswered: I have my bin/cue Neo Geo CD games loading directly from Retroarch using the FBAlpha core. But, I cannot seem to get these to launch form within Launchbox. I used to do this through RocketLauncher, but i'm sick and tired of using it and would like to streamline things. Any ideas? I'm probably missing something simple... i'm still a little new to LB.
  8. Lately I've been getting some odd notifications when starting retroarch via launchbox. Here's what happens: I'll select a game while in BigBox mode. Then, when I press the guide button on my xbox one controller, I get the following notifications in retroarch: "Waiting for client" "Joined as Player 1" (then after about 25 seconds) "port remap failed" It's only after I receive the final message that I can do anything such as save/load state. Now, I realize LaunchBox has nothing to do with retroarch from a development standpoint, but when I start retroarch directly, I don't get any of these odd notifications. I would also like to point out that I'm not using any special launch parameters. Does anyone have an idea as to what could be causing this? Thank you in advance for your help!
  9. These custom console themed overlays were edited and assembled by me to play your retro console games with a unique nostalgic bezel on Retroarch. Please enjoy and have fun. Please give me credit and the others involved if you use it on your Youtube channel. Thanks. Most of the original artwork came from ReignStumble. Credit is given to RetroKenesis for the bezel frames. You can download all my console themed overlays here - http://bit.ly/2nbRtPs Here's a Tutorial on how to add them to Retroarch.
  10. Just thought I would give people a little tutorial here on how to use "mklink" to create a Symbolic Link for the Launchbox Cache. Some people say it improves performance (I certainly noticed it) and some say they don't notice much of a difference, I guess it depends on your set up. This method worked for me very well when I moved the Cache to my SSD, I found that I could now use images set to there highest quality without any impact on performance and the images look great on a 4k TV. So here is what worked for me: 1. First download and install LINK SHELL EXTENSION found here http://schinagl.priv.at/nt/hardlinkshellext/linkshellextension.html (be sure to install the dependency's first)You should now have the option when you right click on a file to "Pick Link Source". 2. On your SSD where you want your CACHE to be located create a folder called "CACHE" (I find that creating a Folder named something like "Launchbox Cache" and then placing the new Cache folder inside it works best). 3. Go to your Launchbox folder and find the original CACHE folder in the IMAGES folder and copy everything in the CACHE folder to your new CACHE folder on your SSD. (this may take a while, alternatively you could just delete everything in the original cache folder if you wish but you will have to repopulate it later after the folder is linked, not a big deal really I just leave launchbox in "attract mode" so the Cache gets filled up). 4. Once you have copied everything (or deleted everything) from the original CACHE folder also delete the actual ORIGINAL CACHE folder itself as well (this part is important). 5. now go to your SSD and right click your new CACHE folder (or the folder it's in) you created earlier and select "Pick Link Source" 6. now go to your IMAGES folder in launchbox right click it and select "Drop as Junction" This will automatically create a new CACHE folder (where you deleted the original) INSIDE the IMAGES folder with a little chain icon attached to it indicating that it is now linked to your SSD CACHE folder! That's it simple but took me a while to get my head around so I just thought I would post this. A way to test if this is working correctly is to do the same with your platform videos folder, if after following the instructions above your videos display properly, everything is working fine! or of course you could just watch the space left on your SSD as the cache fills up.

    Hello everyone! I made this Overlays to use simultaneously with Retroarch + Launchbox, as it contains their logos. Obviously they can be used for Retroarch alone, of course! I thank the original creators for each material used! They are all 1080p overlays based 4:3 displays. Use to your home console systems INSTRUCTIONS: Unzip to Retroarch's overlays folder SCALING SETTINGS: Integer Scale: OFF Aspect Ratio: Custom Custom Aspect Ratio (X Position): 270 Custom Aspect Ratio (Y Position): 60 Custom Aspect Ratio (Width): 1342 Custom Aspect Ratio (Height): 950 Shader: anyone for flat screen Have a good time!

  13. Hi, I am trying to set up PPSSPP currently and got it all mapped with AHK using the standard "key down, Sleep 10, key up" method which works fine except I realized something playing Mega Man. Because it just recognizes that the key is pressed down for a short amount of time he only jumps a really low jump. I could increase the sleep time but then he would always just super high. Does anyone have a script for different variables which I can use? What is the workaround that people use for this issue? Thanks.
  14. Hello All, This is a follow up to my previous post regarding demul and Sega Naomi. I was able to import the Naomi games thanks to @DOS76, unfortunately when I try to launch a GD rom, demul appears but nothing happens after that. I receive no errors from Launchbox or Demul. Could this be an issue with a plugin in Demul? Non-GD roms are able to launch fine and I have the roms & bios directory highlighting my mame folder with a merged chd set included. Thanks!
  15. 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?
  16. Version 2.0


    Native Launcher for MS-DOS LaunchBox for MS-DOS 2.0 is here! If you run MS-DOS (or the DOS console in Windows 95/98), this should be very much enjoyed. It allows you to easily sort through and manage your games/apps within DOS, without taking any extra memory from your apps or introducing any compatibility issues at all. This is done via a simple batch file that starts up and shuts down the launcher as needed. LaunchBox for MS-DOS also works very well with DOSBox if you'd like to use a menu system inside of DOSBox. System Requirements MS-DOS 3.30 or higher 286 or higher CPU (uses 286 CPU instructions) Installation Unzip the zip file and place the contents onto a floppy disk or other media. Copy the four files into a folder on your hard disk (or just keep it on the floppy, it runs from the floppy as well). Navigate to the folder with the files and run LAUNCH.BAT. LAUNCH.BAT can also be called from your AUTOEXEC.BAT file if you'd like LaunchBox to start on boot. You can then add Windows 3.1 or 95/98 to LaunchBox in order to optionally start up Windows by just browsing for WIN.COM. Change Log Version 2.0 - Released Sunday, January 29, 2018 - Many new fields are available for each item: Genre, Series, Developer, Publisher, Release Year, Status, and Favorite - Can now sort items by Title, Favorite, Release Date, and Status - Can now filter items by Genre, Series, Developer, Publisher, Release Year, or Status - LaunchBox now remembers your last selection - List titles and counts have been added Version 1.1 - Released Tuesday, January 17, 2017 - New "Move to Top" and "Move to Bottom" options are available under the Edit menu - New "Insert Separator" option available under the Edit menu - Each application can now have a separate set of commands for configuring the application - New explicit "Run Selected" and "Configure Selected" options are available under the File menu - New "Browse and Run" option is available under the File menu - New "Lock" option is available under the File menu to help prevent accidental changes - Changed the batch file process to better support DOSBox and older versions of MS-DOS Version 1.0 - Released Friday, January 13, 2017 - Initial Release Easter Eggs There are several incredibly stupid easter eggs in the program. Hint: What is the second most popular cheat code ever? Version 1.0 Announcement Video Screenshots
  17. Hi i have imported successfully Bally Astrocade to launchbox but unfortunately i cannot get the emulator to work. I have seen some information on the forum but still i cannot figure it out. I have tried mame and retroarch but no success. On retroarch i have tried Mame, mame2014 and MESS core i get a flash of a window and then dissapears. I have also read that i have to do MESS bioses to system folder of Retroarch and i did. With-regards MAME i do not even get the flash window. I have also put the bioses on rom folder of MAME. Any help would be appreciated.
  18. Hi, I'm having a bit of an issue with AHK and finding my joystick names for remapping. I'm using a GP-wiz 40 encoder and I'm trying to remap the joystick for up/down/left/right respectively. I read through some documentation and I'm not able to figure it out unfortunately. Devices in control panel only lets me see which number the buttons are relating to, not the joystick. Is there an easy way of figuring it out? I tried the test script AHK has but it doesn't seem to recognize my gp-wiz40 for some reason, even though it does in launchbox. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
  19. Hello, all. I've run into an issue with certain games that won't show RetroAchievements information when I select them. I believe it has something to do with how they're named on the RetroAchievements website, since the names sometime don't match up with the LaunchBox Games Database names. Is there a workaround to fix this without renaming my games? An example of this issue would be Neo Turf Masters under the arcade platform. On RetroAchievements its named "Neo Turf Masters | Big Tournament Golf," while on the LaunchBox Games Database, it's named "Neo Turf Masters." Another example would be The Simpsons. On RetroAchievements, the game is named "Simpsons, The," while on the LaunchBox Games Database, its named "The Simpsons." Any help would be appreciated, thank you.
  20. Hey! I was wondering how to add Breakout to Launchbox. This game does not have any rom files associated with it (that I downloaded) weirdly enough and as such I cannot find out how to add it to Launchbox.
  21. When I want to open a stella game in launchbox, it doesn't start, I need help. PD: sorry if it is misspelled, I am from Argentina
  22. 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.
  23. I just uploaded a video of my collection for your perusal - first time builder, be kind!!
  24. Just wondering why I'm having this issue, if it hasn't been addressed by anyone else yet. Background fanart images do appear, but any game that only has a clear logo, the logo will not display
  25. Howdy-Howdy everyone! I have two questions and both are related to LaunchBox (not BigBox) and to using LaunchBox in List View. First Question: Is it possible to have LaunchBox sort Favorites to the top of the list when I start up LaunchBox? By default simply alphabetizes the entire platform though I have Arrange by "Favorite" chosen in the arrange options. I use LaunchBox for absolutely everything and I use the Favorite tag to show me everything DOS & Windows-based that is installed. It only takes me two clicks of the Favorites column header to sort this so this is nit-pick on my part but I use LaunchBox for absolutely everything gaming-related so I thought I would ask. Second Question: Can the badges introduced in the 10.11 update be used in List View? It would be great to see those listed on the right side of the filename. I do have "Show Badges" enabled along with a few badge types selected but none of that shows. Love your frontend and all the people who mod for it. Keep up the great work and thank you!
