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
So, I've begun work on making custom overlay & "hint" graphics, and found a really nice pack some awesome people put together and made available over here at Open Game Art. I've attached the whole thing here (so we've got it in case the original host goes down), as well as some examples out of this pack in case you're wondering what these look like. These seem to be nice vector images, with most buttons 100x100, which is smallish in the grand scheme of things but just about perfect for use as on-screen help graphics.
