I've had an issue with LaunchBox showing the desktop and Big Box showing the menu screen for a second right after the startup screen but before MAME starts. I finally narrowed it down to my MAME HLSL setting being enabled. When HLSL is disabled I have no issue at all with LaunchBox or Big Box startups. Is there a workaround for this or am I missing an extra setting to add? I've played with the LaunchBox emulator specific startup load delay, aggressive startup window hiding, and hide all windows that are not in exclusive fullscreen mode with no luck. Any help would really be appreciated!
In this post I am specifically referring to the PCSX2 emulator, but I noticed it does this with other emulators as well. In LaunchBox, when I go to Tools/Gameplay/Game Startup and select "Use Game Startup Screen", I lose the ability to see my mouse cursor when I minimize out of PCSX2. (I play PCSX2 games in fullscreen.) I have selected and deselected the "Hide Mouse Cursor on Startup Screens" and it only pertains to the actual moment the Startup screen is occurring. (With "Use Game Startup Screen" not selected) I can press escape, the game will pause, and my mouse cursor is visible while I navigate my desktop or other opened windows. To return to game, I focus the PCSX2 interface and select system/resume. Or, I can alt + tab out and the game will continue playing in the background while I navigate my desktop or other opened windows. To return to game, I select the window the game is playing in. (With "Use Game Startup Screen" selected) I press escape, the game pauses and I see my PCSX2 interface against a blank(black) desktop. I cannot see my cursor, but I can activate links if I blindly navigate to them using my mouse. If I use alt + tab, the game continues playing while I select another window with the alt + tab function, but my mouse cursor is invisible. I notice there is a window opened called "Launchbox Game Startup". If I select this window using the alt + tab function I see the Game Over Screen, and the screen will disappear shortly after being revealed. Then my mouse becomes visible and I can navigate and resume normally. Is there a mouse cursor option in the LaunchBox settings that I am missing? This is my first time using the LaunchBox Community Forum. Forgive me if I didn't post this in the right place or if I went about this wrong.
Hi, I've been setting up exodos games in LaunchBox via Rocketlauncher. When running a game directly from RocketLauncher, dosbox opens, launches the game in fullscreen, and the bezel displays correctly. When launching from Launchbox, the game launches, but it is hidden behind the game startup screen. I've tried the individual and combinations of startup override settings, but nothing works other than disabling the startup screen, which is a shame as that's a pretty cool feature. Looks like its some sort of window focus issue. Would be glad to try any other tweaks/settings if anyone has any ideas. I'm running Windows 10, Launchbox 9.2 Thx!
