  1. Hey, good morning guys, how are you all doing? I have a quick technical inquiry about Big Box and Custom Themes. I want to utilize a different Platform Video Set and Clear Logos per Theme. So for example, for the CityHunter Theme I want to use the standard Cinematix Platform Video Set, along with the default Clear Logos. And for the Unified 1.2 Theme I want to use the Unified Platform Video Set, along with the Silver Ring - Clear Logo set. How would I set this up, so that when I choose the City Hunter theme, the desired Platform Video and Clear Logo Set shows up, and likewise when I choose the Unified 1.2 Theme?. Thank you guys and have a nice day.
  2. My plan for my Big Box arcade is to create three main sections (platforms) as umbrella categories: Arcade, Living Room, Office. Arcade would feature only video and laserdisc games found in the arcades. Under arcade, I would have nests for years, decades, and categories (trackball, Williams Classics, light gun, Daphne, Naomi, et al). Living room would be consoles and handheld only, so I would have nests for those (sub) platforms: Atari 2600, NES, Bally Astrocade, et al. Office would be for computers only, so I would have nests for those (sub) platforms: Apple II, TRS 80, Atari 8-Bit, et al. The point to this is to make my Big Box build less crowded with options; after launch there would be three main rabbit holes as choices, followed by the systems in that choice. Is there any way to do this? I know we're not supposed to mess with platforms, but, for example, I would rather have Daphne under arcade and not as its own platform. Thanks in advance for any and all suggestions and/or how-to guides.
  3. I've tried searching for this, and it has probably been answered somewhere else, but i'm having problems getting the automatically created Arcade playlists to show in Bigbox AFTER clicking "Arcade". Might parent/child-playlist be a Bigbox theme-dependant thing? I'm using Cityhunter theme with the platforms scrolling horizontally in the lower thirds of the screen.
  4. As of the update to LaunchBox v8.8 beta 3, the Platform Categories view (in LaunchBox and in BigBox) is listing the Platform Categories AND all of the Platforms together in one big list. How can I get back to the Platform Categories view with the Platforms nested under each category? Thanks, Scott
  5. My platforms were in alphabetical order in LB since I installed it for the first time a couple months ago (then bought Big Box) , the last couple beta's the order was the same but on Both my PC and my cabinet the platform order now seems random. Is this a bug or am I missing something? Big Box is still in alphabetical order and Launchbox.net is good too but desktop is wacked.
  6. Is there an "other platforms" option in LB/BB? The one FE I know that has it is GameEX. You go to a game screen where the description, year released, etc. is and there is a separate menu that lists all the other versons and platforms there are of the same game. So you can just scroll through each item without having to go to that game screen and it instantly shows you the movies of what that game looks like. I find it very useful to be able to go to any version of "donkey kong" let's say, and then scroll through to see every different version and what it looks like. So I can instantly see the arcade version compared to the Atari XXXX version. And I can click that menu to go play that version instead if I want.
  7. Hello everyone! Long time since I was on here, but the weather is bad now in the northeast and with some off time, i have gotten back to my arcade. So when I last left off, I was working on trying to configure in bulk, a way to setup my u360 joystick to load with each platform or genre quickly rather than settingit up for each and every game. Does any one know if this is possible? The last version of LB I had was 7.11 and recently updated it to 7.15 (I think that is the latest version). The goal is to setup one profile for each game that demands 8 way, 4 way, 2 way, etc... and assign it quickly through LB. Yes? No? Thoughts? Many thanks!
  8. Hi all! Currently I have one big platform called "Arcade", and I was wondering what would be the procedure to split that into CPS1, NeoGeo etc within LaunchBox ? I saw the third-party program (Lightspeed MAME importer, as recommended by Brad in an "old" MAME video on youtube), but found the warnings from LordMonkus, and therefore I didn't dare to use it. Any suggestions apart from going through each single game one-by-one?
  9. I have added several platforms under "Manage Platforms" in Launchbox such as Atari 2600, Nintendo Entertainment System, Nintendo 64, Genesis, and Arcade (MAME). I want people to be able to browse through my ROMs by navigating through these platform names in BigBox, and only these platform names. When viewing the platform lists, the ones listed there aren't the ones I've defined under "Manage Platforms", but platforms that LaunchBox identified my imported ROMs as originally being designed for. Now the list for example shows Atari 2600, NES, Capcom Classics, Capcom Play System, Capcom Play System II, etc... How can I make it display roms by the platforms I configured and imported into, and only by those platforms I've imported into? -Keith

  13. Hi guys, Been a minute for me. The only reason I havent been around is because I didnt have the system to do everything I wanted to do. but, I have been tuning in to every episode on the youtube and some of the live streams. But anyhow, The question I have is, Can I get a Emulator List from one of some of you good ppl? I know some ppl may have issues with this because they feel they are doing something wrong but, I dont see the issue really but, All I really need is a list of emulators from one of guys with an extensive Library. I dont need a list of games or anything like that. A picture of your Launchbox Emulators List would be fine; and it wont take up much of you guys time to take a screenshot or two. I just need a starting place and after that I can make my own decisions from that point on. I know some of you guys especially the older guys have knowledge on some older, classic systems that me (As a Younger Guy) Dont even know about. So A list would be awesome. and thats all I need. I will be back with more interaction for sure. Im just behind the curve because I am building a new gaming PC that will be perfect and will be my Emulation Monster!!! Thanks in advance to anybody who can help. - Thadoughboy15
  14. Hi there, Launchbox has been running flawlessly for me until I deleted my arcade complete set platform to replace it with a different set. Since then it takes about 8 seconds to switch between categories. This is true even for categories with just a few games. BigBox however is running really well, I experience no lag at all there. Related info: 9934 games, No background images in launchbox options, Optimized images, Was changing categories in like 1 - 2 seconds until I deleted a massive category. Thanks in advance.

    Various banners I made for myself. I am currently using them with Modern Mini theme, but probably can work for another themes too. There are three types of banners in the zip archive: 1) Platform Categories: - Arcade - Computers - Consoles - Digital Distribution - Handhelds - Playlists 2) Platforms: Five simple banners for digital distribution platforms. - Battle.net - GOG - Origin - Steam - Uplay 3) Playlist banners: 13 banners for various playlists (the NES and SNES Classics pictured on screenshot are not included, I just modified and used the clear logos created by gogocons (Nintendo Classic Editions Banner and Clear Logo) to fit my style.) - Adventure Game Studio - Dungeons & Dragons - Lightgun Games - Locomalito Games - Mortal Kombat - OpenBOR - Pinball Games - Pokemon Collection - Shadowrun - Shmups - The Elder Scrolls - The Legend of Zelda - X-COM Maybe someone find these useful too. Oh, and sorry for my caveman english

  19. Im trying to have platform bezels setup on retroarch but there doesnt seem to be any info out there on how to make this work. Does anyone have a link of any kind on where I need to add these and have them active? Id like to slowly add game specific bezels eventually but I thought I would start with something a bit easier first. These are the bezels I have downloaded and look to use
  20. So this has been driving me crazy for way too long. All i want is for my various arcade systems to display their system specific overlays when running a rom. I want my CPS1 one games to use the CPS1 overlay, the CPS2 games to use the CPS2 overlay, the Konami classics to use their Konami Classics overlay, etc. Ill try to explain what I have done but maybe I am doing something wrong that is keeping this from working. I load up launchbox and click on manage emulators. First off I do have an "Arcade" category that covers all of my games. This is using the mame_libretro core. My parameters for this Associated Platform are: -L "cores\mame_libretro -c "config\mame_libretro.cfg" with the default box checked. This works all fine and great and I can use the MAME overlay and shaders with no problem. When I create an Associated Platform Capcom Play System with the Default Command Line Parameters set to -L "cores\fbalpha2012_cps1_libretro.dll" -c "config\fbalpha2012_cps1_libretro.cfg" with the Default Emulator box checked Launchbox continues to open Retroarch with the mame-libretro core. This also happens no matter what order I change in the Default Emulator boxes between the mame core and the fbalpha 2012 cps1 core. Also, I get the same outcome when I setup the CPS2 and CPS3 cores. The only way I can get Retroarch to fire up if I select to play a cps1 game is if I change the Default Line Parameters for Arcade under the Associated Platform column in the Manage Emulators menu to the fb alpha parameters. Another thing that I find weird is that if I open retroarch, load up a core, and then load the config file for that core the application closes down. Not sure if this is normal. I would love any help, if possible. I tried to include as much information as I could in this post to help further a solution. The only thing that I have not tried is deleting all of my games within Launchbox and then re-importing each platform individually and setting up their parameters, rather than importing them all as just a general Arcade category using one MAME core to run them all.
  21. Hello, world. I only installed LaunchBox yesterday, and upgrade to premium today. I love it. I've installed, say 1,000 each Sega Genesis, NES, and SNES Roms so far with no issues, but now I import a mere 130 Mame roms, and they create 13 different platforms. I prefer all the Mame/Arcade to be under a single platform. How did I screw up, and how do I fix it? Thanks Brad
  22. Hello, I've built a three-sided cocktail table with my son for a multicade setup. We went with three sides so we could play both horizontal and vertical arcade games. I want to configure Launchbox with two different arcade platforms, Arcade (Horizontal), and Arcade (Vertical). I have two different mame folders, mame-0.161-vertical, and mame-0.161-horizontal, so that I can have different mame.ini files for each, and can configure the vertical mode to rotate the screen 90 degrees (and do cocktail flipping for the two short sides of the table). I am finding the platform/emulator/rom import configuration to be really confusing for this setup. I added a custom platform for vertical, then imported a few roms and chose the emulator path to my vertical mame folder. These games worked as expected. Later I added more roms, tried to scan for updated roms, and my roms imported but without any emulator set. I don't think the UI was designed for this sort of setup, so I was wondering if you had any quick tips on the best way to get this configured in this manner. Thanks! -Adam
  23. So I have this problem about Emulator names. Is it possible to add a new Emulator name such as going to tools>Manage Emulators>Emulator Details>Emulator Name. I am trying to use Stella(Its an Emulator) for Atari 2600 right but Stella is not in the list of names given, I know that it wants me to use RetroArch to make it all work but I find it impossible to work with RetroArch. Example, RetroArch makes it so I need to install Stella inside the the RetroArch interface therefore I cannot use the one I already have. Second, I find it impossible to change the controls in RetroArch because if I want to play Atari 5200 that has like 50 buttons for one controller, I cant understand how to change each individual key using the settings inside retroarch. Also I find that the picture quality is completely crap (as shown in the pictures I uploaded). Using different emulators for each platform is so much easier but LaunchBox does not give me that option because it forces me to use an Emulator name. I found out how to get around this by selecting a random emulator name, for example I choose Snes9x Emulator name and make the path as as stella therefor tricking it so it will open Stella instead of Snes9x. But if I ever want to add SNES to my emulator list, then I need to delete the path and so on.. So in short... How do I add a new emulator name!?!?
  24. Hi Guys, I am new to launchbox, and have a quick question. Is there a way to import platforms to your launchbox setup? I'm asking because when I try to import Neo Geo Pocket Color roms, there is no corresponding platform to pick. In other words, NeoGeo Pocket color isnt in the list of platforms. Please see screenshot... Any help with this would be appreciated. Mike
  25. I want to add 3DNES to my platforms, but I can't really think how should I classify it.. https://geod.itch.io/3dnes
