I recently bought a new computer and moved Launchbox to that new computer but the images in the game media seem to have shrunk. 1. Is there a way to unshrink them without losing the quality of the image like when you blow up a 100 x 150 to 1000 x 1500? 2. If I download metadata and media for all my games will it replace the images with newer, larger images? If so then all I have to worry about are the freeware windows games which I had to take screenshots of to add to my collection since they are freeware and not known enough to have images in whatever website Launchbox looks fore pictures at. EDIT: I tried removing images and re-downloading media but those images are also of a small resolution. Is there some kind of setting for pictures that makes them small? It would be nice to have larger, more higher quality images for my games.
This Black Friday or Cyber Monday I am going to try and get a new computer and I want to move launch-box to that new computer. I assume I have to install launch-box on the new computer first, then do I copy my old Launch-box folder onto an external hard drive and then copy my old folder over my Launch-box folder in my new computer? Will this keep Launch-box exactly as it is on my old computer complete with not just all the games and emulators but any setup necessary? I know dos games sometimes require VERY specific installation. I saw this post and I'm not so much interested in making it portable as just moving it so I'm sure I don't need to do as much as is in the video. Plus I didn't know if I should continue another persons topic.
This weekend when I turned on my computer with launchbox to update windows 10, a few minutes later I discovered a weird smell sitting in my recliner and get up to look at what it is and the arcade cabinet is no longer on (blank display) then noticed liquid all over the place inside the cabinet. Well looking at it a little closer the Liquid CPU cooler cover snapped off and all the cpu coolant went everywhere including everywhere in the computer. I am building a new PC this week, but the SSD that my Launchbox files I believe should be still fine and operable and the games are on two external hard drives. If I move the the SSD to my new PC as a slave drive and make shortcuts to the launch files and make sure the external drives are the same letters as they were in the previous PC will have I any problems or do I need to do anything else (installing or moving files to a new drive). Also if there are any videos on moving your launchbox files to a new PC would be helpful also. Thank you.
Hello all, I just recently joined the forum, but have been doing research on setting up my first emulation computer. My question has to do with setting up Launchbox on a brand new PC. I bought a bare-bones Dell Optiplex 790 (Small Form Factor) on EBay to start with ($100). Intel Core I7 2600 3.4 Ghz 8 GB memory 500 GB hard Drive on-board video OEM Power supply (225 or 250 as I remember) I will be adding a new install of Windows 10 to this PC. I have several spare Video Cards here that I might add, but that would require that I upgrade the power supply. No a difficult task, but one that I need to research first since the Dell motherboard may not have a standard power harness hookup. If I do upgrade, it seems that 600 watts should be plenty. my question has to do with software installation order for Launchbox. Obviously I need to set up the OS first ( win 10 home vs pro - I'd guess there is no difference on which one I use?). Th n I plan to install Launchbox Premium following your well done YouTube videos. Besides game Roms, do I need anything else to be installed? It sounds like I can set up a pretty bare system if I intend to just use it as an emulator machine. i tried locating this info and generally only found minimum system requirements, or moving Launchbox to a new PC. Thanks in advance. Jim Reed
