Have you tried reinstalling video drivers and direct x as well as the Visual C++ runtimes ?

There have been people who have reported these things can fix tings with the Creators Update. Keep in mind that the CU is still not an officially available update yet, it is still a beta and I just read last night that it is going into a big bug squash phase so hopefully that will fix some issues with it.

Yes, I've done all of this. (I'm a PC technician by trade), but nothing is working sadly....the CU update was forced on me as an official update actually, so didn't fight it when it started scheduling the install automatically...I certainly didn't sign up for a beta version of Windows...YIKES...I know better than that...

Hopefully, something gets done to fix it, so I can enjoy my collection and continue to refer others to LB.  Thanks for the response.

I'm going to try a fresh install of launchbox as a final attempt to fix this; hate losing my favorites though.

Just to clarify CU is an official update the bug fix bash is for the cleverly name Fall Creator Update which is currently running on Insider Preview PC's like the one I'm typing this on.

Can you guys add a button on the games missing box art to download individual box art? Maybe by the refresh button. This would help out alot

I am not sure if this has been asked but how about a rom downloader option?, sorry if this has been asked already.

that would be condoning what some would call piracy , not me im a data preservationist & would love the feature. But its still a grey area and the creators of launchbox cant take any chances.

As much anyone would love this built into a front end it would never be possible. To many legal issues and emulation is already frowned upon in many areas, although getting better. There are tons of options to download roms from websites.

You could even do it yourself if you know how to code up a plugin for it, you could pull roms from the archive. But don't expect it to be hosted here on this site, it would be a major legal liability.

Would it be possible to add the ROM filename to the list view?

I'd like be able to search by ROM filename some time when i'm not sure it was imported correctly.

Perhaps a video on how to search for GENRE/TYPE of games in the regular (non-bigbox) view in Launchbox...sometimes I want to just see RPGS, or Platform games across one or more platforms..takes too long to get there in BigBox...

BigBox online features , game streaming , friends requests , groups , emulator multiplayer ,voicechat whilst playing,  tournaments ... might as well think BIG ,

I guess the reply should be "lessthanzero" chance. Haha.

Oops, I laughed at my own joke there.

That "RomFlix" image you mention is free so is not likely to be pursued by the Authorities, whereas LaunchBox is a commercial program and the Authorities would probably crash on it like a ton of bricks if such a feature was added. That's how I see it, which is just conjecture of course.
