Hey LaunchBox, I'm hoping you can help me with a weird issue I'm having. I have RetroArch 64-bit side loaded onto my Nvidia Shield TV and with the latest versions of LaunchBox for Android (0.41 & 0.42) I can't seem to launch any systems through RetroArch. I keep getting a black screen. I can see that RetroArch launches but I have to force close it cause it doesn't go passed the black screen. I'm pretty fluent in tinkering with RetorArch so I'm positive the core configs are correct. I have LaunchBox pointing to the sideloaded 64-bit RetroArch and then also pointed it to the appropriate core (I've also tried with multiple cores). I've tried this with a side loaded 32-bit RetroArch as well as both versions on the Play Store but just ain't having any luck with it. This doesn't seem to be an issue with my standalone emulators (Dolphin, DraStic, Mupen64 FZ, PPSSPP, ReDream, Yaba Sanshiro) as those all launch as intended. I can also confirm that I can run RetroArch and load all those systems/games through there just fine as well. Seems to be a an issue with the script or something communicating between LaunchBox and RetroArch. Thanks in advance and let me know if you need me to provide anything else!
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!
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.
