I'm not sure where to ask this, I'm guessing 'Features' might be the best place but I'm not sure. This isn't strictly a Launchbox thing but I'd like to use this alongside it... What I'm looking to do is create a 8 (or so) button touchpad program with 8 images / text button I can touch / click that will send a keyboard command, like "Esc" or "Alt F4" or "down arrow" or a combination of several. Ideally this would be placed on an old phone or tablet near my build that I can use for MAME or other emulators that only has the hotkeys that I want for that emulator, right beside me, without the use of a full keyboard or mouse OR hitting TAB or somesuch to open another gui mid-game... I'm thinking maybe an HTML webpage with shortcuts, or a 3rd party program where I can just build a menu / tab driven GUI where I can choose MAME or SEGA or whatever, then have the hotkeys I'd like for each emulator. My issue is that there are different hotkeys to minimize, maximize, exit, bring up the menu, etc etc etc within each emulator and I don't want to have notes or scraps of paper or stickers on my keyboard for everything I need. I want to streamline this and just have a phone or tablet set up with tabs or menus I can set for each emulator i need with my chosen hotkeys. Am I making sense? I'm happy if this is a 3rd / 4th windows screen on the tablet or phone, there's software to extend screens to android. I can easily have this set up to open software, websites or run videos or whatever, but just to press a key or combination of keys... I'm not having much luck so far. I was going to use 'Autorun Typhoon' but it doesn't allow single or multiple key-presses per click/button, only .exe's, videos and other programs. Maybe I'm overthinking this?? Hopefully you understand what I'm trying to achieve, otherwise I'm just another guy who's drunk on the internet.
Hi guys, just bought and HDMI splitter to be able to play the same content in two screens but had not think about playing in the 2nd one (not the one the input comes from) alone, so when I turn off the first one the second is not working. Any ideas to make this without having to tweak my cable setup every time I need to do this? Following this image, it would be something like having output 2 monitor working when TV (output 1) is off. Obviously the purpose is to have both working at the same time but it won't be like that always and it'd be good to have this variant. Thanks!
Hello, just starting out thanks in advance for your help! I installed Visual Pinball in LaunchBox however when it launches a pinball game the game was placed in the center of the screen and you could see LaunchBox in the background on the right and left of the playing field. I found the setting in LaunchBox to minimize LaunchBox when launching a game, and used a black desktop so that was a workaround. However, BigBox does not have or I can not find this setting so when playing pinball you can see Bigbox menu in the background. I did find a setting in PinMame which stretches the screen, but this is just distorting the pinball table. Any help appreciated! Thanks again, Steve
I am thinking about putting my pc in a cabinet now I have it all set up with Bigbox. Can you get narrow lcd screens that are a similar size to the actual marquee on the actual arcade cabinet ? then you could display the actual marquee on the cabinet and have it change depending on the game by maybee setting it up as a second scree ??? Think that would look pretty cool but dont know it such a thing is available ? I cant see anything but... I am pretty new on this so maybee its a stupid question :-)
