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
Fist time n00b here seeking help on a rig able to play games up to PS1. I have this idea in my head to create a "Console Arcade" where the computer for the arcade rests in the actual controller. I would like the computer to run Launchbox and really nothing else to give it a total console feel. The controller I have selected is below, (unless you guys have any further suggestions): https://shop.xgaming.com/collections/arcade-joysticks/products/x-arcade-tankstick-trackball-usb-included What kind of computer would be necessary to run this? I also have an old Xbox 360 i would be willing to flash if i cant put a computer in the controller itself Thanks for your help in advance
