LaunchBox Beta Testing

Recommended Posts

Oh good gravy, thank you for this. You have made me life easier with this "hide" feature by a degree which I could never even quantify.

I am having a problem with both LaunchBox and BigBox not returning to the correct resolution after exiting out of both KAT5200 and Project 64 I've noticed in the last two betas.

Jason Carr said Another new beta out. I finally added a "Hide" field to games, so that you can hide games from your collection in LaunchBox and Big Box. I'm finding it really convenient to only show games with images and metadata completed in Big Box. Also supports bulk editing.
This sounds great:D. How can I do a bulk edit to hide games without any kind of metadata? Also, I found a reproducible crash that I reported but I figured I'd report here too. If I'm scrolling down the list while trying to flip a box it will crash. I can easily produce this by going down the list and spamming the flip box key/button, and there's some noticeable lag when doing this as well. This also causes the Launchbox.xml to become corrupted. Keep up the good work:].

And here's another. This has the beginnings of additional filters in Big Box. Press Escape to get out to the system menu, and you'll see other filters options. Obviously, there's a lot of cleanup work to do here to make it all smooth. None of the other filter types have main images (we currently don't have images for developers, publishers, genres, etc.), so I'm not quite sure what to do with that, for the moment. I'm toying with the idea of allowing images for all of the various field types. Beyond that, keep in mind that custom filters do not work properly for this beta. I'll have that fixed before the official.

Great to hear. It's helping a lot in my collection as well.

Hmm, well...nothing has changed with anything rendering-wise in a long time, so maybe that issue always existed? Does it happen any time the resolution is changed? What exactly do you see on your screen?

Well, it's not perfect, but assuming you use TheGamesDB for the bulk of your metadata downloads, you can just filter to TheGamesDB.net ID: None, then Ctrl+A, and use the wizard to mark all the games as hidden. Good find on the flip box. I'll get that fixed. :)

Yeah that's the idea I was thinking of using but didn't since there's a few that get pulled from wikipedia and have some data, but I might want to hide those anyways, I'll have to see though.

When I come out of the emulators everything is stretch out and I lose stuff to the right. I was just going to explain but instead I will show you. In Launchbox this isn't a big problem because toggling full screen off and on in the view section sets it back to normal but in BigBox there isn't any way to fix it besides going back to LaucnchBox and then back again.Launchbox.JPG

This has happened to me multiple times. When in Big Box, usually opening the Windows Task Manager will fix the problem.

Ah, wow, so that's happening in both LaunchBox and Big Box. I have seen it before in LaunchBox. Ugh, I imagine that's an ugly pain; better tackle that one soon. Thanks guys.

Per the stretching, oddly, I'm having trouble reproducing. I suppose it's possible that it's a Windows glitch that was actually fixed in Windows 10, or maybe it happens only with certain emulators. I've tried changing the resolutions in Dolphin and PCSX2 and I can't get it to happen. Anyone know what emulator(s) are causing it?

@Jason tried all these emulators blueMSX, Dolphin, DosBox, Emulator, ePSXe, Fusion, Handy, KAT5200, Kega Fusion, Mame, Mame 0137b and 0138b, Neo Pop, Nestopia, nullDC, PCSX2, Project 64 ver 2.2, ProSystem, SuperModel, Virtual Jaguar and Visual Bot Advance, and no distortion or stretching except when you exit out of game in ScummVM, Visual Boy Advance and ProSystem you get shrinkage in the writing momentarily when you press escape or go back key on keyboard its fine again see below image:- shrink.jpg

For me its Kat5200 and Project 64 v2.2 my computer is Windows 10 also with EVGA 750TI. It looks to me like when the screen returns to the 1920x1080 resolution LaunchBox doesn't come with.

Awesome, thanks guys. @DOS76, any chance you can screenshot me what Big Box looks like after the Kat5200 or Project 64?
