  1. Hi, l would like to make all of my games work before buying Bigbox but I'm having some issues: I've added TG-16/PC-Engine games to my library, followed the instructions, the games are on the correct platform but, for some reason, RA loads games using an Atari 7600 core (Prosystem) instead of mednafen_supergrafx_libretro. I already did a bulk edit to change either the platform or the emulator but the problem persists. I also tried to work around it by deleting the Atari core but then it simply would not launch the games. l linked an image where you can all see my the default directories for Retroarch's cores (l don't even have Atari 7600 as an associated platform). Thanks.
  2. Best c64 romset

    Ok so I always looking to play my c64 collection, but usually don't because I'm not sure which of the 20,000 games is any good or playable.
  3. Hello, I'm using RetroArch and having trouble launching ps1 games from LaunchBox. "scph5500.bin", "scph5501.bin", and "scph5502.bin" are in the RA system folder and the md5 info matches. The BIOS directory is set in RA. I'm using Beetle PSX HW core ("mednafen_psx_hw_libretro.dlll") in my "Associated Platforms" setting. I added the .CUE in LaunchBox and its pointing to a .BIN with the same name. I can load this .CUE successfully in RetroArch and play it just fine but if I hit "Play" in LaunchBox it doesn't do anything. Anyone got any ideas?
  4. In RetroArch I use the M keyboard key to bring up the core menu. In works in all other tested cores but not here. It is set in this core as well has anyone ever seen this happen before?
  5. Hi Guys, I have both LaunchBox and RetroArch installed to my NAS currently. When trying to play a game, it doesn't seem to launch RetroArch. There are no errors, it just comes right back to the LB interface. I'm thinking this might have something to do with DirectX, but not sure. I'm running Win 10 64-bit w/DirectX 12, so shouldn't have to installed 9.0c. When I do try to with the RetroArch installer, I do get an error. Is there anything inherently wrong with installing both to a NAS? Any other ideas? Thanks!!
  6. Hi, So.... I created a Capcom Arcade list directing it to fbalpha_libretro.dll. Some games load no problem (1941), others don't open (avsp) but are included in the play count every time I click. Thinking it may be the rom, I opened it in retroarch and it loaded no problem. Why won't it load in Launchbox? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
  7. Change core per game for retroarch?

    Hello, I know that Lanchbox has a feature for changing the emulator on the fly at launch. But is there anyway to change the core per launch? Some of my n64 and psx games run better with different cores, it would be awesome if i could change them on the fly as well.

    These are from my very-far-from-being-finished Retroarch overlay project. I've been meaning to put these up for a while now, but was waiting to cover more systems but... who knows how long it'll take to get through more, so I figured I'd put up what I have so far. Originally I was just going to create some for Arcade stuff, but then decided to branch out into some other platforms as well. Like I said, this has a really long way to go before it's anywhere close to done. Current platforms covered: MAME (4 overlays; 1 horizontal / 3 vertical) CPS1 (5 overlays; 4 horizontal / 1 vertical) NES (6 overlays) SNES (3 overlays) Sega Genesis (4 overlays) Sega Saturn (2 overlays) Sharp X68000 (2 overlays) Other image/video projects:

  10. Hi to all! I'm interested in one important question. Is there any solution to starting a game from Bix Box via Retroarch with certain config file? I know that i can save config overrides for any core/game, but when it comes to thousands of games, it can take a very long time of your life to save each and every game config. The problem is with my custom made arcade stick. In Retroarch there is some standard of buttons bind which is called "Retropad". Standart layot is: Y X R1 L1 B A R2 L2 But when it comes to arcade games with such a layout of buttons, at this point there are many problems such as: • Capcom games like Street Fighter which has two rows of 3x buttons (top is weak/medium/strong punch, bottom row is the same but for kick). • Neo-Geo games commonly like to use A, B, C, D all on one row. • Games with 1, 2, or 3 buttons (in a row) - usually Attack/Fire, or Attack + Jump, or Attack + Jump + Special (special move, special bomb, etc.). All these binds do not work as they should, instead they are attached to default Retroarch layout (Retropad). I would like to make several configs with button bindings for certain systems (not to save the configuration for each separate game, since the same mame core is used and I can not just keep core overrides). Is it possible to start Retroarch with a command line or something else when launching a game through the Big Box so that when the game starts from a certain playlist (for example one for Capcom games, one for NeoGeo, one for Shmups, etc...) a certain configuration with a certain layout of the buttons is loaded? For example if you can use default Retroarch.cfg with different buttons binds placed in various folders. Thanks and sorry for my English, it's not my native laguage

    Wasn't a fan of how small a screen all the gba bezels/overlays seemed to want me to have. It might be pixel perfect or w/e I dunno and I'm just a scrub, but I wasn't a fan. So I repurposed a wallpaper I found on google images. It's about as basic as you could expect from a bezel. Used mGBA in retroarch, all default settings except Integer Scaling turned ON. Oh I forgot to add, it's for a 1920x1080 display.

  13. I use retroarch for all my emulated platforms and it works great but for some reason when I launch mame roms in big box instead of displaying retroarch it just sits at the big box games list like nothing was launched. If i tab out of big box the game is running fine but big box seems to think the game crashed. This only happens with mame roms launched in retroarch with the mame core. anyone else have this problem?
  14. For some reason when I load a game with RetroArch with Rocket Launcher bezels I have the Windows taskbar on the screen too. When I turn bezels off in RL the taskbar isn't there. Anyone know what I've done, and what I can do to keep the taskbar from showing when the bezels load? Thanks!
  15. This issues has been driving me nuts for weeks. I can’t seem to figure it out. I’m trying to configure Retroarch for the first time. I want to use it to emulate NES, SNES, Sega Genesis, etc on my Arcade. The arcade has an Xtension 2 player control panel, configured for keyboard inputs. Works just fine with MAME games & the standalone MAME emulator. But I’m just focusing on NES & Retroarch for now. This should be simple, since I just need to enter control inputs for up, down, left, right, A, B, Start & Select. I just can’t figure out Retroarch. I’ll load the NES core in Retroarch (NestopiaUE), then go to Input and then Input User 1 Binds. I assume these are the general inputs for Retroarch overall. Not sure if I need to setup a config file for each core tho. This should be simple, but it’s not. I head down to the User 1 D-pad settings. The correct settings should be up, down, left, right arrow keys. When I press enter to change & then press down on my joystick, the key is changed to keypad2, not down. So all my settings are set to keypad8, keypad2, keypad4, keypad6. It doesn’t matter if I enter inputs with the joystick or arrow keys on the keyboard. Doesn’t matter if the keyboard number lock is on or off. So when I launch an NES game, the joystick controls do not work. I’m at a loss how to fix. I suppose I could manually change the config file in notepad++, but I cannot locate the config file on my hard drive, and I’m not sure if config files need to be made for each core. And if individual config files need to be created, how do I get them to launch with each Retroarch core? Setting up my Arcade has been a ongoing battle every step of the way. So damn frustrating. This shit is going to take me years. Any help appreciated.
  16. Retroarch save game/memory card backup

    So, I had a problem with retro arch where it was only showing half the screen. No matter what I did, it wouldn't show both sides. Out of frustration I deleted the whole folder and re downloaded it which did fix the problem, however, that of course deleted my save games and save states. Before I research a way to do this on my own, are there any known projects that backup the memory cards, save states, and save game folder for retroarch on google drive or drop box automatically? I figured I would ask before I try and write something myself. Edit: This could also be a great way to be able to play on your desktop, then pick up the save game on your raspberry pi. Speaking of which, I hope we get a linux version of Launchbox one day, even if it is stripped down to work faster on a raspberry pi.
  17. Hello, Recently I purchased launchbox and I love it. I got all my games using Retroarch setup with it easily however I am having issues with CPS games and Neo Geo games. They work in Retroarch but not in launchbox. When I click them I mouse pointer goes as if its loading but it does not. I have tried all the cores i am using with launch box that are able to run these games and made sure the neogeo bios is in the correct place. I have tried the following cores: fbalpha_libretro.dll fbalpha2012_libretro.dll mame_libretro.dll mame2014_libretro.dll They are all working in Retroarch using fbalpha_libretro.dll with no problems. I have ensured that extract rom is not checked as well. Is there anything I might be missing? I have been stuck on this all day and have visited the forum and checked multiple posts and checked youtube tutorials before asking and am about ready to pull my hair out. Thanks for any help I get in advance. Reading the posts I love this community and hope to be a part of it!
  18. Hi. I bought BigBox and love the interface and have had fun setting everything up. Everything seems to work ok - certainly in terms of displaying my ROMs and loading up emulators. However I have an issue with Retroarch. I have retroarch set up as my default emulator for some of my platforms - for example Sega Genesis and it works exactly as it sould. However with N64 BigBox loads the emulator and game except the is a noticeable, unplayable stutter and lag. Of course I tested outside of BigBox by loading the games directly in Retroarch and they play perfectly, even with BigBox minimised. My system is plenty powerful enough - Core i7, Geforce 660, 16GB ram etc. Its almost as if BigBox launches the Retroarch N64 core with some sort of option or switch or setting which is causing issues because like I said its fine to play directly inside of retroarch. Any ideas? How should I start troubleshooting?
  19. Retroarch now not working.

    I have Launchbox all setup and I was using 2 emulators through retroarch. one is Sega Genesis and the other is Nintendo 64. everything was working perfectly. I have not been on for a few days and I decided to put neogeo on. All the games were imported and I double clicked one and......nothing. If I right click and open with retroarch, retroarch just opens but no game. Thinking it was a issue with the neogeo I tried the N64 and Genesis and none of those work. All my other emulators work outside of retroarch through launcbox. No idea why its suddenly stopped working and ok, I could just use a emulator and scrap retroarch but surely something isn't right? On another issue. I can load a game through neoRAGEx but through launchbox, I double click a game and then the emulator loads and then I must click the game again. Not sure if that's how the emulator is or if I need retroarch (which sadly wont load through launchbox). Thanks for in advance for any advice. Jamie.
  20. Trackball

    Hi all, I am trying to get my trackball working in retroarch and not sure where to start. The trackball works as a mouse right now but I want to play Marble Madness and other games with it. Any advice would greatly be appreciated!!!
  21. Hello everyone! I'm having an issue binding the keys for RetroArch. I am unable to bind arrow keys; the bindings automatically say "Keypad 8" and so on. I have an Xtension Arcade Control Panel and I am unable to use it because it uses arrow keys whereas when I try and bind said arrow keys, it makes it a keypad instead of an arrow. Does anyone know how to bind to arrows and not the keypad? Also, is there anyway to clear all of the bindings for the hotkeys I don't need? My player 2 stick uses "F" which changes the full-screen mode and I'd like to clear that.
  22. Hi mates! I have a big problem, I only get Retroarch to work on Sega systems, such as Master system, genesis, 32x. When I try it on something else. it just turns black and nothing happens. And I have downloaded the right core and put the correct text in. "default command line parameters" such as -L "cores\stella_libretro.dll" and so on. It does not even woth outside Lauchbox. I have solved it by using other emulators for other systems, but now I cant seem to find a good emulator for Atari Jaguar. Please help!=)

  25. Launchbox with Retroarch with MAME2014 Libretro core I took a long break from configuring my arcade machine and recently dived back into it. I am running into a problem that I cannot seem to find an answer to so I thought I would come here to see if someone could help. The issue is that when I load up a game in Launcbox using the MAME2014 core, the global buttons are not being used by default, instead the buttons for the specific machine that I load are the ones being used. However, this is obviously very inconvenient because every time I fire up a game I have to go in and change each machines buttons configs through the quick menu screen within mame. Is there a setting that allows for all machine settings to be overwriting global settings?
