The Atari 800 entry is incorrect for MAME/MESS. "a800 -cart ..." will give a "Not Found" error as the 800 has 2 cartridge slots so it should be "a800 -cart1 ...".

I edited it to fix it.

On the MESS entry for Apple II, it gets a bit complicated. For a single disk with .do, .dsk, or .po extension (open the zip file to check) you could use "apple2e -flop1" (add other parameters before the "-flop1") and if the file has a .nib extension check "Use Custom Command-Line ..." and type in "apple2c4 -flop1".

If there are two (or more) disks you need to check "Use Custom Command-Line ..." and type in "apple2e -flop2 "<full_path_to_second_disk>" -flop1" (no need to add the first disk as LB will automagically add it). You may have to experiment with which disk to use as a second disk. Some games need a blank disk to hold your info, scores, saved games, etc. and some have several scenario disks so you need to make several LB entries, one for each scenario.

Also, there should be an entry for "Apple IIGS" also. That would be "apple2gs -flop3" for .2mg Apple IIGS disks and, checking "Use Custom ...", type in "apple2gs -flop1" for Apple II disks. See above for how to add more disk images.  Hope this helps.

What would be a good Command Line for Phoenix Project? Virtual Jaguar seems to get stuck for most of my games on my Laptop (haven't tried it on GPD Win yet), and 4DO doesn't get to a proper speed and sound when I try playing it on my GPD Win.

I'm avoiding all of RetroArch on my Laptop since it doesn't seem to work when I HDMI it to my Projector even when I change the mirror settings within RetroArch. I'm only doing RetroArch on my GPD Win though

For WinVICE, am I supposed to use this EXACTLY: Carts -fullscreen -cartcrt Tapes/Disks -fullscreen -autostart

Am I supposed to change the TAPES/DISKS text above? Sorry I'm thuick, but can someone post a real-world example with .D64 files?  Also .Tap files?

Thanks!

Ive just loaded 3do emulator and dreamcast, using 4do and nulldc.  I found the startup command for both, but both seem to always load to the "insert cd" startup of the emulators.  I have been through the learning curves of Dahpne but this one kinda has me stumped.  Does anyone have the path to take or maybe an AHK that can load the iso for these?  For 4DO,  i have entered the command prompt -StartFullScreen -StartLoadFIle and then added my "Path to roms" and I cannot get anything to load. Ive read this thread and even moved the space...eliminated the space (no luck)  I have even given the path to the specific iso in the command "C:/user/me/desktop/4do/thisiso"....to no avail.   Any help is appreciated.

Both systems require BIOS files do you have those? Also Null DC is pretty outdated there are better alternatives for DC these days.

My appologies.  The systems have the BIOS loaded and pointed at properly and work properly outside of Launchbox as they should.  Im just attempting to open the Emulators and ISOs in one movement in Launchbox without just entering the Load screen...then mouse clicking the game from the "File open Iso"  I Started with FreeDo Emulator but that also has the 2 step iso load that i cannot figure out in Launchbox.  Game Cube, Wii, Sega Cd, 32X etc dont have this issue....Only 3do, dreamcast and neo geo cd.  Im not running retroarch. Just Emulators from an external SSD

Okay I'm sorry about that I just had to ask as none of that information was posted in the original post. Its been so long that I've messed with NullDC I couldn't tell you how I used to get it to work but I definitely could. I'd suggest checking out Redream, Demul or the Flycast core in RetroArch over NullDC but if you are set on using hopefully some one can help. Pretty much the same with 4DO I just use the RetroArch core and honestly I never play anything on 3DO. Good luck with these I'm sure there are user using those emulators who can chime in.
