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
Hi, I have a WD PR2100 NAS and am considering using that for my roms and using a PC for Launchbox (SSD), images/snaps and emulators (on HDD). The NAS has two ethernet ports (one currently connected to modem) and I would use other port to connect to my PC. Has anyone had much luck doing it this way? I would be emulating N64 and PS1 as the most demanding systems. Thanks
Hi Guys, I have both LaunchBox and RetroArch installed to my NAS currently. When trying to play a game, it doesn't seem to launch RetroArch. There are no errors, it just comes right back to the LB interface. I'm thinking this might have something to do with DirectX, but not sure. I'm running Win 10 64-bit w/DirectX 12, so shouldn't have to installed 9.0c. When I do try to with the RetroArch installer, I do get an error. Is there anything inherently wrong with installing both to a NAS? Any other ideas? Thanks!!
