  2. How Long To Beat - Game Length Plugin View File About Plugin that scrapes information from HowLongToBeat.com and adds custom fields with game lengths information. I made this plugin to add length information for certain games, mostly rpgs. This adds 3 custom fields for Main Story, Main + Extra and Completionist length. You can configure which ones you want to add by editing the file HLTBPlugin.xml. Because there's no oficial API from HLTB, I had to parse the HTML, which means that as soon as they change something on the HTML this plugin probably will stop working... Install Extract files (dll + xml) to : Launchbox/Plugins/HLTBPlugin. Config (HLTBPlugin.xml) MainStoryLength: Enable/disable main story length update. Default: true. MainExtraLength: Enable/disable main story + extra length update. Default: true. CompletionistLength: Enable/disable completionist length update. Default: true. MainStoryFieldName: Change main story length custom field name. Default: Main Story Length MainExtraFieldName: Change main story + extra length custom field name. Default: Main + Extra Length CompletionistFieldName: Change completionist length custom field name. Default: Completionist Length Note: If you change the fields names it will not update the games that already have information, so you will end up with duplicated fields with different names and you will have to manually delete them (edit game -> custom fields tab). So config the first time and stick with that. Usage Access the option by right-click a game (only one game, no massive update yet). A window will popup with all the games found and you can choose which one correspond to your game. If there's no results you can manually change the search words (e.g. Metal Gear Ac!d will get no results but you can then change the search to Metal Gear Acid). You can use the "Arrange By" option to order the games by length. Lengths are shown with leading zeroes because is the only way to properly order the games since custom fields are strings and not integers. Tested on version 8.9. I think you need a premium license because custom fields are not supported in free license (not sure). I have no relation with HowLongToBeat.com, if you like their work please go and support them.

  7. Starplayer's Local Scraper for Launchbox View File This program is a scraper for your video files, to be used with launchbox. ------------What it does:------------ Imagine you have in your possesison a full collection of video snaps and theme videos for launchbox. Now, you might just have them all in your launchbox\videos\ folder, and everything will work. However, you might prefer to have only some games that you like in your launchbox installation, in a faster SSD, or you might have a Raspberry Pi, which has limited space. In those cases, you will want to only get the videos that correspond to the games you have in launchbox. This program does that automatically for you. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------How do you use this program then??------------ Glad you ask! -1: set the path of your launchbox installation. Usually C:\program Files\Launchbox for example -2: set the path of the folder in which you have your full video collection. For example D:\Launchbox Videos\ -3: Check the checkboxes "Run for videos snaps" and "Run for Themes" depending on if you want to get game snaps, theme videos, or both -4: Press Run ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------Things to have in consideration:------------ You have to have your video folders with the same name of the folders in the launchbox directory. ie, if a folder is called "sega saturn" in launchbox, the correspondent in the folder that containsall your videos can't be called only "saturn". The blue button "Correct Names of video folders attempts to solve this, but you should check. If you want, you can run the program for just one game platform. To do that, check "Run for One Platform Only", press "Get Platforms" and select the platform you want to run for. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ------------"Other Options" explanation:------------ --"Ignore platform if no original videos are present" - check this if you don't want to be reminded thatthe program didn't found any videos for a specific platform. --"Rename original videos": check this if you also want the original videos in your video collection to bepermanently renamed to the name that launchbox is expecting for each game. Any suggestions, you can find me on Launchbox's forum. You're welcome. Be happy. Starplayer Submitter starplayer Submitted 12/16/2018 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins

  9. Starplayer's Local Scraper for Launchbox https://forums.launchbox-app.com/files/file/1606-starplayers-local-scraper-for-launchbox/ Let's you scrape your own video collection, and puts only the needed ones in your launchbox videos folder. Great if you want to save space on your Launchbox drive. Currently only videos are supported, no themes still, and no other media. I'm open to suggestions and bug reports. Enjoy.

  10. Hello, Rencently i have lost all my LB folder due to a disk failure. I'm rebuilding everything now, but the thing is the scraping is too slow. For example i am now waiting for 4 hours and it does not have passed 50% on N64 just downloading box, clear logo and video from emumovies. I have a 10Mbit conection. Does anyone know this is a common issue lately? Thank you in advance.
  11. When I try to update a lot of roms with manuals and videos, it doesn't find any. If I do them in smaller batches (like 15) or one by one, it finds them. Is there a bug or am I doing something wrong?
  12. Has anyone noticed certain emumovies downloads hanging? I've been trying to add small amounts of games at a time, and every 20 or so games, a certain one will just hang for up to five minutes (either downloading a video or music). Eventually, it produces an error, and the rest of the content goes through, but I wish there was a way to skip these troublesome downloads slowing the whole process. Any ideas?
  13. I added the application to the download-page, which automatically generated a new topic. For questions / remarks, please go to:
  14. I think I have had issues with this title before. Super Mario Advance refuses to be imported into the library. The sequels import and operate fine but this one seems to stubbornly resist both Launchbox and the scraper. Is this known?
  15. Hi, I want to swap from HyperSpin to Launchbox (probably BigBox licence) Nevertheless I want to know if it's possible to scrap in french, for instance I didnt' see "Pokémon : Version Bleue" but only "Pokémon Blue Version" ? Thank you !
