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 labeled now: "3D Ultra Mini Golf 2 [258410A3B] Fairy Tales Map Pack (DLC)". Perhaps the title of the DLC should be in parenthesis or next to game title, is there a guide for this? (more modern console examples) Shouldn't Launch box show what DLC you have with the associated games in the games details? (that seems like a standard feature for modern consoles) Rather than combine each DLC to their game individually in Lunchbox after importing them (unable to do so, greyed out combine button). How do I properly import this DLC so that it is sorted properly? Also adding an option to not import .zip and .7z file format for ALL consoles would be helpful.
Hello! I am loving this process so far, however, I have run into a small issue. I imported a folder of GBA Rom's of which several (more than 30) have a #GBA in the file name. These roms are already in LB and they play without issue. The problem is that Metadata does not get pulled reliably if at all. I have gone into a couple and manually changed the title and then the metadata is downloaded without an issue. This led me to use a mass file renaming utility (Advanced Renamer) which allowed me to get rid of just the #GBA in the file names. The problem is, LB still sees them with the #GBA and the path that LB points to for the actual rom is still the name with #GBA in it. I just started to re-import all of the GBA ROMS folder (in which the files have been renamed to omit the #GBA) which I am now thinking might have been a mistake as it might double up all of the roms? Is there an easy way to batch change the titles and rom paths after importing originally? Or should I just delete all metadata associated with the GBA Roms and start from scratch? Thanks in advance!
I've noticed certain games with versions in the names get skipped when downloading media. Dreamcast collection did this alot due to version numbers in the names. Anyone have any tips or lists I can use to rename my roms to ensure my roms will have the best chance at getting media downloaded for them. I mostly use no-intro and redump collections. Also, is there a tool or simi-easy way to rename the roms and media files I already have at the same time? I've manually added in 100's or maybe even 1,000's of the missing box art pictures. Mostly the front 2D & 3D covers. Thank you
