  2. 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.
  3. All, Lifetime license holder here. I am considering a ServoStik (https://www.ultimarc.com/servostik.html) which has 4-way to 8-way powered restrictor switching. It can be switched from 4-way to 8-way and back via software (command-line or GUI). I spoke to the guy (Andy) at Ultimarc who said the restrictor can be changed automatically depending on the game using certain front ends. I asked about Launchbox/Bigbox, but he wasn't familiar. Has anyone gotten this to work, and if so, how? As this post's title indicates, I'm using Bigbox to run MAME games, and I'd like to have the joystick's restrictor plate to automatically change to 4-way when playing games like Donkey Kong and Pac Man, and change to 8-way when playing Street Fighter, etc. Any and all assistance would be appreciated. Thanks, -Mike
  4. 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.

  5. Hi guys ! My setup of Launchbox/Bigobox is all fine on my computer and I can launch all platforms and play my games without any issues. Things get annoying for me when I want to play my games on my Tv through HDMI. Here is why : I can play all games when I use stand alone emulators (snex9, yabause, epsxe, etc.) except when I choose to play them through Retroarch. This multiplatform emulator works fine when I use it on my computer but crashes when my computer is connected through hdmi to my tv ! I searched on the forums and googled this problem but no one seems to have that issue Can anyone please help me solve this problem since I don’t want to configure stand alone emulator for each platform. It’s a lot more convenient to play my games and platforms using just retroarch Thanks in advance for your help
  6. 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!

Im new here so thanks for any help in advance.
  9. 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
  10. Hello all, I've been scratching my head with this one for a while now and it's starting to get frustrating, and so I've come to the forums after exhausting all other options that came to my head. Recently, I had the smart idea to upload Launchbox, ROMs and Emulators to my Google Drive, as I heard Launchbox is portable (despite needing to change the paths for the ROMs and Emulators. I did that, got it all set up OK with the filepaths, the ROMs and Emulators are being found just fine. However, I'm getting this error: So, I can see that it seems to be an issue with VLC and the libvlc.dll I can see in the VLC folder, using my google-fu I looked this up and it was recommended to close LB/BB, delete the VLC folder and re-run LB/BB. This creates the folder again, however, the same error still remains. Tried this a few times, even launching as admin to no avail. I've checked the properties of the .dll file as I saw on another post that they can be blocked, this wasn't the case for me I don't see that tickbox. I'm going to wager that LaunchBox cannot find the .dll as if there's a filepath that hasn't been changed, I've searched through every .xml and .config but, alas, I can't find anything. Please help! EDIT: Another interesting development, if I choose Windows Media Player for video playback in Launchbox, the error does not appear, however, no matter the setting in BigBox the error always appears on launch before the start-up video.
  11. 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!
  12. I am trying to download game clips (videos) from EmuMovies. I thought in the past that there was an video option under the Download Metadata and Media Wizard window. However, video download doesn't seem to be an option. Am I missing something?
  13. I am using an older gaming PC I built 10+ years ago. (Intel Dual Core E7400, 4 GB Ram, 512 MB Radeon 4850). I have been running MAME with it for a while with no issues at all so I have been thinking of a front end and have decided on LB mostly on the advice of ETA Prime and his awesome YouTube channel. I installed LB and imported all 2800+ games with no major issues until I went to run my first game. I received a "Low memory must shutdown" (paraphrasing of course) error message and LB quit. I opened LB up again and it worked fine but only had a few minutes to play with it before heading to work. Forums tell me the longer LB runs, the more RAM it eats up, which makes sense because it spent 8+ hours importing all that data (I imported everything but emumovie). My motherboard limits me to 4 GB of memory which seems to be plenty for emulating games, but perhaps not enough to run Launchbox to its fullest, which is a bummer....so my question is this: Windows has a function that allows you to use a flashdrive for additional "RAM." With 4 GM RAM and another 32GB from the flashdrive, will that be sufficient to run LB? I won't use "attract mode" which apparently is a huge RAM hog. However, will I be able to use BigBox as a front end (I plan to upgrade if LB will work), with only some of the bells and whistles? If so, what options can/should I run with only 4GM RAM and some extra help from a flash drive? What should I disable to help things run smoother? I'm thinking I'll pick up a cheap refurbished PC on Ebay in the coming weeks or months but I just built a new cabinet and really want to run LB immediately. Thank you in advance to anyone who actually read this and wishes to help a hapless noob
  14. Hello, The current command line for Colecovision in Retroarch specifies the MESS core which is no longer available for download. -L "cores\mess_libretro.dll" There is a MESS_2014 however it does not appear to work. (I made the following change to the command line incorporating MESS_2014): -L "cores\mess2014_libretro.dll" Again, it does not work I also tried the Blue MSX core, but I can't figure out how to use it to actually load a GAME in Launchbox. It loads the Colecovision BIOS for every game I select and nothing else. I think I need a command line (that I don't know). Would love to have Colecovision working in Launchbox (Bigbox) so thanks in advance for any tips!
  15. This tutorial work perfect the problem is only one. You will no longer be able to control the volume in launchbox. Would it be possible to change the method in launchbox, perhaps through this system? https://www.rlatour.com/setvol/
  16. Hiya. First off, LaunchBox rules, and I love every bit of it. However, I'm trying to use a RetroArch core(PCSX ReArmed) For my Playstation games. They launch fine if I open RetroArch, and open a game file through the program, but if I try to launch the game through LaunchBox or Big Box itself, I will get a loading icon, but the game never launches. Is there an option or something I am missing, or any tips/tricks?
  17. Hi community, I'm looking for a best practice solution. I presently have a MAME cabinet with Launchbox and BigBox (best thing ever created since sliced bread btw) installed on a NAS and I run LB/BB directly from the NAS over the network. I connected the cabinet directly via Ethernet to get better speed. Some games take a little longer to load but overall the experience is great. I configured it this was knowing that I would like to either get more cabinets or devices to play my games in the future. I just purchased a new TV and plugged a PC directly to it. Now I have 2 Logitech Gamepads and would like to like to play my games through it as well. The issue I am having is that all the emulators in LB/BB have been configured to play with the controls on the MAME cabinet and because I'm sharing LB/BB on the network, the gamepads are not configured on the emulators. I'm looking for the best (and easiest) way to get this working properly. I'm also planning on connecting LB/BB to more devices Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated! Cheers, Lawrence
  18. 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!
  19. Please subscribe to my Youtube Channel! Original Post: JamesBaker has inspired me to share my own projects but I'm not sure how I'm going to distribute them. I would much prefer sharing them through the same method as James rather than freely available online for other software users to abuse without a Bigbox license (sorry guys). I have a handful of other cinematix I made (all 1st gen). So for now, here's what I'm currently working on: Original box:
  20. Atari Lynx View File 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.

  22. To start this off, I am new to launchbox and I don't really know much about the technical stuff, I just use it to run older games. So my problem is that, when I was importing some ROMS, I forgot to select the platform that they should be put in and left it on the default which is "all." And because of this, I now have 2 platforms titled "all" and it will not allow me to delete them. I have a bit of OCD when it comes to organizing files and such so this bothers me. Is there anything I can do to get rid of one of them? I attached an image of the problem. Thank you. Also, if I am asking on the wrong forum, let me know.
  23. 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.
  24. 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.

    Exit in PES 2010

    Hi everyone, I have a problem with PES2010 for Windows (on bartop), it is the only game that with the EXIT button that I assigned to the CAB, not only does not work but gives problems and can no longer return to the game or to bigbox . Does anyone know a method to fix the delta from this title to return to BigBox, or remove the EXIT function of BigBox just for this title so as to use the natural EXIT of the game? Thank you
