Note** The tutorial was originally written for only the eXoDOS collection but it will work all the same for win3xO. You will have to rename the ID4 game names in Launchbox, and there are around 5 random .bat files that will import as games but you can find and delete them easily as the pictures will not load for them. Here is a method to import the eXoDOS collection retaining Exos DosBox configs, install system and all images ect but using Launchbox images also. Makes for a very user friendly complete looking Dos collection that saves on space as you are only installing the games you play. Ex0s images had to be renamed to work with Launchbox 7. Download the renamed versions here https://archive.org/details/Win3xO1.0Launchbox7Images https://archive.org/details/eXoDOS_LB_Images Open launchbox and start a fresh rom import. Import files from the !dos folder, search for *.bat Wait a few minutes till the search completes as it takes awhile, scroll to the bottom of the list to be sure its not still updating. ctrl+a select all organize the game import list alphabetically and delete all instances of install.bat. Make a new platform and call it eXoDOS, and a new emulator(point it at any exe it doesn't matter, could use a current emulator I guess) Scrape as MS-DOS Do not connect to the LB database or download any metadata/images, untick all boxes but leave force import duplicates ticked. After the import is complete close Launchbox Put the renamed images you downloaded earlier in the Launchbox image folder. Open Launchbox Select all eXoDOS games and bulk edit choose emulator and leave it blank and save/exit backup your eXoDOS.xml in launchbox data. Best to make it a .zip right there as you will need to use it to replace your eXoDOS.xml after each metadata update. (Sometimes when you search the LB database for game information it renames the games to incorrect names. This means the entire collection will never be tied to a LB DB number but if you have the images/videos present it will all still work.) Ctrl-A eXoDOS collection Download metadata Choose what images/videos you want and on the last page uncheck all boxes. After downloads are finished refresh close open LB and replace your eXoDOS.xml with the backup one if names have changed back to dupes . With the renamed image download you will find there is are no images for 4-5 games,. 2-3 games have upsidedown ?'s in Launchbox that need to be renamed to the .bat file name (minus the year). Alice Through the Looking Glass and Leather Goddess have file names that are too long, you decide what to rename them, those 2 are the only images that require renaming. Everything else should work Enjoy Image links https://archive.org/details/Win3xO1.0Launchbox7Images https://archive.org/details/eXoDOS_LB_Images
