You know how you can put games in a folder on your PC desktop and also have individual icons next to folders? Or how you can group games into folders/groups, for example on PS4? Can I achieve this in anyway with Big Box? As of right now, I only have 2 options: show All Games or a filter/group. Example: |super mario bros 3|, |metal gear solid 2|, |racing games folder|, |sonic mania|
My plan for my Big Box arcade is to create three main sections (platforms) as umbrella categories: Arcade, Living Room, Office. Arcade would feature only video and laserdisc games found in the arcades. Under arcade, I would have nests for years, decades, and categories (trackball, Williams Classics, light gun, Daphne, Naomi, et al). Living room would be consoles and handheld only, so I would have nests for those (sub) platforms: Atari 2600, NES, Bally Astrocade, et al. Office would be for computers only, so I would have nests for those (sub) platforms: Apple II, TRS 80, Atari 8-Bit, et al. The point to this is to make my Big Box build less crowded with options; after launch there would be three main rabbit holes as choices, followed by the systems in that choice. Is there any way to do this? I know we're not supposed to mess with platforms, but, for example, I would rather have Daphne under arcade and not as its own platform. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions and/or how-to guides.
Hi Guys, With the release of 8.8, is it possible to nest playlists inside of other playlists or can the playlists only be nested inside of platforms and categories? What I'm trying to achieve is something like this: Fighting Games ----- Street Fighter Series ---------- Street Fighter II: The World Warrior ---------- Street Fighter II: Champion Edition ---------- Street Fighter IV ----- Samurai Shodown Series ---------- Samurai Shodown ---------- Samurai Shodown II Run-n-gun ----- Contra Series ---------- Contra ---------- Super Contra ----- Metal Slug Series ---------- Metal Slug ---------- Metal Slug 2 I wanted to keep these lists platform agnostic. Is it possible with the updates in 8.8? I was playing around with this but it looks to me like we need to use the Parents tab on the edit playlist screen to select where these playlists display and I am only able to select categories or platforms as parents and not other playlists. I just wanted to make sure I understood this new feature correctly. Thanks for anyone who can confirm. Side note, this being my first post, I wanted to say thanks to the launchbox team for this awesome software and thanks to all those people on the forums who post great info. I've been reading these and a few other forums for a long time, getting my system setup and building out my first arcade cabinet. The info that has been posted on these forums has been invaluable. Especially Lord Monkus for all the tutorials, NJDave for the no-nag MAME builds, and all of the theme creators for making my big box experience so fancy. I'm super grateful to all of you.
I've tried searching for this, and it has probably been answered somewhere else, but i'm having problems getting the automatically created Arcade playlists to show in Bigbox AFTER clicking "Arcade". Might parent/child-playlist be a Bigbox theme-dependant thing? I'm using Cityhunter theme with the platforms scrolling horizontally in the lower thirds of the screen.
