  1. Archive Cache Manager View File A LaunchBox plugin which caches extracted ROM archives, letting you play games faster. Also allows launching individual files from archives, and loading preferred file type from an archive. Description When a compressed ROM (in zip, 7z, or other compression format) is first extracted, it is stored in the archive cache. The next time it is played, the data is loaded directly from the cache, virtually eliminating wait time. As the cache approaches its maximum size, the least recently played games are d

    A LaunchBox plugin which caches extracted ROM archives, letting you play games faster. Also allows launching individual files from archives, and loading preferred file type from an archive.

ROMs previously selected using the "Select ROM In Archive..." menu are automatically loaded the next time a game is played.

  3. When Importing modern games and downloadable content add-ons I'm having a problem in which Launch box is unable to recognize DLC and group it with the games that they belong with, instead it imports DLC as separate games (DLC shows no data or pictures, games do). The files that I have for the X360 XBLA (Xbox 360 Live Arcade) don't have file extensions, so that may make it harder for LaunchBox to import the content properly. I also thought my issue might be caused by having different file names of games and DLC. Is there a proper format for DLC? This is an example of how I have mine labele
  4. A Little Context I'm currently using the nointro collection on a portable hard drive and it launches zipped files okay when using the RocketLauncher. With the latest feature addition of the launch screen to BigBox beta I've decided to take out the middle man, mainly because I find RocketLauncher overcomplicated and, overall, I want the process to many as few steps as possible. Current Setup So I've setup Retroarch emulator with all the cores I had pre-configured in LaunchBox emulator window and marked the option to extract roms before launching. Problem the problem is Launch
  5. Hello, sorry to understand me, but english is not my first language ;-) I have a problem with commodore 64 files and uncompressing them. All files are .zip, i have checked the option "extract rom archives before running", but Hoxs64 or Vice are only loading the LAST DISC into the emulator. It cant load the game of course, i need the first disk! What can i do to force the uncompressing tool to load in the first disk?
  6. Hi Guys, I have an issue when asking launchbox to extract a rom before launching it. When I check the box, then run the game, launchbox opens my default extraction app (7zip) and shows me the content of the zip/7z, or whatever compressed file within the 7zip interface. And nothing happens next to that... What am I doing wrong here? Isn't launchbox supposed to just do this extraction in the back and just run the rom (usually a cue, bin or other iso file i keep zipped for obvious space saving reasons). Thanks !!!
  7. I'm trying to use ExoDos and nothing works!!! I used Dosbox as a emulator and imported the roms folder but no games where imported.
  8. Is there anyway to filter files within zips? For example, I have all of my Dreamcast images in zips, and there are 3 files in most. When trying to launch Demul, it does nothing if there is more than one file in the folder. If it's a single file it launches correctly.
  9. After an "argument" in the launchbox discord, i did some googlefu and found out that dosbox daum has the option to mount zip files. @Zombeaver promptly tested if it worked properly and surprisingly it does So here is a guide on how to run zipped DOS-Games. Download DOSBOX Daum from http://ykhwong.x-y.net Unzip (DOSBOX Daum, not yourself) Make 2 folders in the unpacked dosbox named "Data" and "Games" Copy your Games in .ZIP format into the games folder Start dosbox and type: "mount c Data:Games\YOURGAME.ZIP:/" replace YOURGAME.ZIP with your zipped game na
  10. I have a lot of zipped games with the exact same "Media (CD-ROM)" sub folder. The same emulator plays zipped games without the "Media (CD-ROM)" sub folder when you have the "Extract ROM archives before running" checked. Is there anyway to point the emulator to that folder after being unzipped.
  11. How do I get retro Arch to open 7zipped games better? Some consoles using retroarch via Launchbox with zips work and others do not. Check list -Associate Platform section is character perfect -Command-line sections is pointing to the correct core -Extract Rom archives is checked -Games work in Retroarch Zipped -Games will open in Launch Box using Retroarch unzipped But games do not open in Launch Box using Retroarch zipped Any solutions?
  12. -f -g "FULL\PATH\TO\ROM\FILE" -f (for fullscreen) so Default commandline parameters -f -g
  13. It seems like RetroArch is the preferred emulator. From I can understand it does not support compressed roms. Is there a list of systems/roms that be used in compressed format? I realize some emulators support different formats but they might not be the best one for the job. Just trying to save space when possible. Thanks!
