I just now learned that nvidia shield apparently works pretty good for an emulation-box!. I do have bigbox on my desktop PC in my gaming room, but apparently i play retro games elsewhere rather than in my gaming den where Steam games get prioritized. since Nvidia shield seems portable enough so that i can bring it along when visiting friends, and with hopes of getting Bigbox on it eventually, it seems like an obvious purchase. BUT, after researching online, i've come a cross several rumours for the next nvidia shield model which might not be too far away. I will mainly be using this shield for retrogaming (gamecube, being the highest tier) and streaming games off my PC. Should i wait? Will the recent model get a price deduction? Will the nbext device do emulation and game streaming even better? Some rumours mention Google Stadia, but since i do have capable gaming PC's at my house, it isn't that interesting Sorry for writing an unnecessary long post just to ask that one simple question.
When launching a game in Launchbox on android, is it possible to load separate .cfg-files for each system, like what’s possible on Launchbox for Windows by typing in »-c coreconfigfilename.cfg« i think?) in emulator settings. This would solve the problems i am facing trying to set up my Nvidia Shield TV not having to remap the buttons each time i’m playing N64 with a N64 usb Retro-bit controller or Sega with a Sega usb Retro-bit controller each time.
So I'm about to take the plunge on a lifetime license of Launchbox premium for the Big Box feature, however, I have two questions before i proceed: Does anyone have any experience streaming Big Box to Nvidia Shield TV? I use RetroArch, PCSX2, and Dolphin. Will I need to set the resolutions in these emulators up separately (outside of what I setup for playing on my PC), or will Nvidia's streaming technology "automagically" handle it? In regards to the Shield Controller --- do I need to configure it within each Emulator, or will Big Box / RetroArch / Dolphin / PCSX2 recognize as an XInput controller and work "automagically"? For context, I have gone in and setup controller schemes for my xbox one controller when I play on my PC. Not a dealbreaker by any means, I just want to know what kind of pre-configuration I'm getting myself into -- if any. Thanks!
