  1. Hello, currently I have created a small script with AutoHotKey in "Tools -> Manage Emulators -> Running AutoHotkey Script", which allows me to associate the 2 buttons of the joystick 2, as second player for Dragon's Lair. The code is as follows: ; Start 2 2Joy7:: Send, 2 return ; Coin 2 2Joy9:: Send, 6 return I have already configured the keys in the DaphneLoader.exe configuration: Dragon's Lair -> Configure -> Input: Start 2 = Primary Key -> 2 Coin 2 = Primary Key -> 6 When I start it from LaunchBox or BigBox the keys on the keyboard work. Instead on the joystick of the second player, only the button associated with the "key 6" (2Joy9) of the keyboard (the one that gives the token) works for me. The other button (start 2 - 2Joy7) does not want it to work. And the button number is right, because if I start the AutoHotkey script on Windows and press one of the two joystick buttons with the notepad active, the correct keyboard input is sent. What's wrong? Thx!
  2. Hi everyone. Been a while since I've been able to get on here. I have found bits of information on this topic that for a complete newb the basics are missing. Basically what I am trying to do is get joytokey to start and end any time I open a visual pinball game through LB. So far what I know is a batch file needs to be made in order to get joy to key to exit when exiting the game because a script will only start joytokey and not exit upon leaving the game. I don't know if it makes a difference but I did have to turn off each tables association with an emulator to get it to launch properly so none of them have an "emulator" per say through launchbox because it won't auto launch the game and instead brings up the emulator as if I am loading the table and still need to hit play to start the table. My assumption then is I may have to do that for each game that is unless I can script it to go through the emulator and automatically hit play after the table loads like it does without the emulator association. Cool with it either way, just don't know the nitty gritty. Lets assume I know what has to be done terminology wise but that I don't know how to do any of it (writing scripts, creating the batch file proper, ect.) I can say that I had to make quite a few batch files for my dreamcast library and the CDI I believe (its been a while) so I know the basics of running the batch program by putting what you want made into a batch file into the proper folder with the batch program but lets assume here that - I don't know how to write scripts (very little programer knowledge) - I don't know how to specifically make a batch file for anything but the mentioned up above - Am not sure how to direct everything properly afterwords to make sure launchbox is reading everything right (ex. do I just redirect to the batch file instead of the "tablename".exe file?) Sorry to make this so wordy or if these are some stupid questions. The closest I get to doing anything script wise or anything related here is working on this launchbox project. I am just a humble retail manager 😛. Thanks so much!!!!
  3. Hi All, I am looking for ahk script that will allow me to hold "button 10" on my arcade stick for 5 seconds to exit out of an emulator. The code below that was submitted in the noob script section will exit on key press only. $joy10:: ; my start button { Process, Close, {{{StartupEXE}}} ;closes emulator } thanks in advance bman
  4. MAME to Demul Rom Copier (MAME .184 & demul07a_180816) View File So Derek (@DOS76), originally posted these scripts, and I saw that they were not copying over all of the files for these systems, and that there were now some errors thrown in. So I updated all of the scripts to include name changes, newly added games, and now the Naomi GD and Naomi GD2 scripts also copy over CHD files. Required Files: 1. These scripts obviously. 2. MAME .184b and demul07a_180816 2. A MAME .184 split or non-merged rom set. Searching mame dome of pleasure helps. (Non-merged is suggested for the best compatibility, even though it's much larger). 3. A MAME .184 CHD pack. This is optional, but the Naomi GD and Naomi GD2 games will either not run correctly or at all. The CHD pack only comes as "merged". How to Use: 1.Download the zip 2. Extract the contents of the zip to a folder (like your Demul folder). 3. Move the scripts (.bat) files to your MAME .184 roms folder. 4. Run each of the scripts 1 by 1, and when the script is done it will ask you to press a button to close the Windows Command Prompt. 5. It will create new folders, sorted to the top of your current view; These folders begin with _ so they move to the top. 6. Move those folders to a location of your choosing so that you can import them in to LaunchBox. 6.5 Make sure to set the "Scrape As" option for these platforms all to Arcade (Will automatically pop up during import when you type in a non-default System name) and check the box "Force using MAME Metadata" (That box is on the final screen with the rest of those check boxes). Remember, these are all Arcade MAME Games, so all of their metadata will be in there. 7. Make sure to also tell Demul where your MAME roms are located for parent and dependency reasons. You can add this in the Plugins and Bioses options menu in Deuml, pictured below. The Systems this script will copy games for: Naomi NaomiGD Naomi 2 Naomi 2 GD Sammy Atomiswave Hikaru Gaelco This script uses 2 commands, copy and xcopy, and I can only promise that it will work on Operating Systems that LaunchBox supports (Windows 7, Windows 8 / 8.1 and Windows 10 currently). If you have any questions, leave a comment on the download page or the thread. I will also post Derek's original script for the version of MAME he edited them for. To clarify, his scripts work on a older version of MAME and Demul. Submitter SentaiBrad Submitted 04/18/2017 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins  
  5. Hi, I made this script to start DeSmuMe (Stand-alone. Not RetroArch) in fullscreen automatically. These are the steps for using the script: 1) Extract the attached file "desmume.zip" in the folder where you have the executable of the emulator. 2) Open "desmume.vbs" with a text editor and replace "DeSmuME_0.9.11_x86.exe" with your executable file name. Save the file "desmume.vbs" 3) On launchbox go to Tools / Manage Emulators, select your DeSmuMe emulator and click Edit. 4) In "Emulator Application Path" select "desmume.vbs" file (Filter All Files in Browse) instead of the emulator executable. In "Default command-line parameters" enter "/rompath:" Check the option "No space before ROM" Click ok 4) Play Little Red Riding Hood's Zombie BBQ (If you bought it ) I'm a noob in vbscript, if you know an easier way to solve this problem, tips are welcome. (Sorry for bad Great Britainnnish) desmume.zip

  7. Hi Everyone! I found it really hard to search for games when looking at a console and none are expanded. I wrote a little script that writes the name of each game on top of it's cover so I'll be able to find games easier and even use the browser's search functionality on a console. Here's the script and how to use it: 1. Create a new bookmark in your favorite browser 2. Enter the following name: "Launchbox - inject names" 3. As the URL, enter the following code: javascript:(function() { $('.box-item').each(function(){ let qElm = $(this); let boxWidth = this.clientWidth; let imgWidth = qElm.find('img')[0].clientWidth; let boxHeight = this.clientHeight; let imgHeight = qElm.find('img')[0].clientHeight; let hSpace = (boxHeight - imgHeight) / 2; let wSpace = (boxWidth - imgWidth) / 2; let name = $.trim(qElm.next().find('h3').text()); qElm.append(`<div style="position: absolute;bottom: ${hSpace + 5}px;left: ${wSpace}px;right: ${wSpace}px;color: white;display: flex;align-items: center;text-align: center;justify-content: center;background: rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.5)">${name}</div>`); });})() I usually put this in my bookmark bar for easy access. Look at the gif for a quick demo. I hope someone else will find this useful 🙂 Notice that it might take a while if your rom collection for a specific console is huge 🙂

  9. Hi everyone, I have 2 problems and I need your help. 1- In the applications of the games I add Xpadder to start before the game, and a bat to close it when it closes. With the new versions of LB now it opens to me and I close without being able to use it. 2- How can I do to load an xpadder profile directly with a script in applications? When I use nomousy I have the same problem mentioned in number 1. It opens nomousy and closes instantly without being able to function. I hope you can help me. From already a thousand thanks

  12. Here is a script I use to navigate Bigbox with controller buttons instead of the x/y axis or POV. Edit the controller numbers and buttons to suit. eg: 1JOY12 = 1st controller/joystick and button HID number 12 Edit sleep time to change the rapid fire. Its not suitable for games as it emulates the way the keyboard driver inputs. It only activates when BigBox is the main window so it wont interrupt games So press key, inputs, then if held after half a second rapid fires. It should feel exactly like using the arrow keys. Hopefully sometime soon the BigBox team will add remapping of navigation directions.... #IfWinActive, LaunchBox Big Box { 1Joy11:: { Send {Up} KeyWait 1Joy11, T0.5 If ErrorLevel While GetKeyState("1Joy11"){ Send {Up} Sleep 10 } } return 1Joy12:: { Send {Down} KeyWait 1Joy12, T0.5 If ErrorLevel While GetKeyState("1Joy12"){ Send {Down} Sleep 10 } } return 1Joy13:: { Send {Left} KeyWait 1Joy13, T0.5 If ErrorLevel While GetKeyState("1Joy13"){ Send {Left} Sleep 10 } } return 1Joy14:: { Send {Right} KeyWait 1Joy14, T0.5 If ErrorLevel While GetKeyState("1Joy14"){ Send {Right} Sleep 10 } } return }
  13. Script for removing ESRB logos from Steam trailers View File It seems that many people find it annoying that many trailers which get downloaded by LaunchBox from Steam begin with an ESRB or PEGI logo before the actual trailer starts. With this ffmpeg script you can batch remove the first seconds of all your trailers and cut these logos out of the videos without the need to re-encode them. NOTE: Besides this script you’ll need the free program ffmpeg. You can get it here: https://ffmpeg.zeranoe.com/builds/ You won’t have to install it. Just download the static version and extract it somewhere on your PC. How to use it: 1. Put my script in the “bin” folder of your ffmpeg installation. 2. Open the .cmd file with any text editor and edit the paths for your Steam/WIndows video folder and the output folder (where it should save the edited videos). Only change the placeholder names in capital letters and leave the rest as it is. 3. The number after the –ss command is the length you want to cut out at the beginning. I set it to 5 seconds but you can change it as you like. 4. Save the file and start it with a double-click. Wait until it’s finished. 5. Overwrite your old video files with the new ones from your output folder. Submitter CriticalCid Submitted 08/14/16 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins
