Auto Extract .7z

Recommended Posts

Hi All

I recently purchased the premium version of LaunchBox to replace my Hyperspin arcade cab setup and ran into a problem.

All my rom packs are .7z and with my old setup they would just automatically extract into a temp directory for the PSX, Dreamcast, Saturn etc and then mount to Daemon Tools to get around cd file types like .img.

Is there such a function within Launchbox as extracting all the rom files for certain systems go from 500gb to 1 - 2tb, I dont have the hard drive space.

If this function isn't in LaunchBox will it be likely implemented in the future as at the moment a cant set up my arcade cab because of this?

Many thanks in advance

Yes, go to Manage Emulators and then for each emulator Edit Emulator > Emulator Details you will see in the bottom right corner the option to Extract ROM archives before running.

PS: Since you double posted this topic I deleted the other one ;)
