Possible to launch steam big picture from launchbox

Recommended Posts

I prefer to organize my pc games through steam using big picture. Launchbox\bigbox would be perfect for console and arcade based systems. Is it possible to launch steam big picture through launchbox/bigbox? For example having a steam option on the left menu, but instead of it taking you to a list of games, it just launches the steam client in big picture?

I'm pretty sure you aren't going to be able to launch it from the sidebar unless Jason adds in some new functionality. What you could do is create an empty file in your launchbox directory, add it as a game, and have steam (with big picture mode params) as the emulator. Then when you launched the game, steam would launch in big picture mode.

It looks like you can launch Steam Big Picture mode like this: \steam.exe -bigpicture So what you can do is create a new game and point the Application Path to your steam.exe file, and then put -bigpicture in the application command line parameters. That should work to launch Big Picture mode.
