That's great!

How did you change the font in launchbox and which one is that?

He modified the Launchbox theme which is a recent feature addition and he has uploaded it here:

Those having the MSX set

Some roms have .cas format

Do you have to type RUN "CAS:" for them to run then press play (for tape?)

i have nearby 25.000 games with around 17 TB of used storage for that. Ah, yes. over 70 System so far. I like to divide arcade systems instead of having them all under ARCADE like CPS 1 to 3, Model 1 to 3. or all the different Namco Systems 1868787098_Bildschirmfoto2018-11-24um15_14_57.thumb.png.59ce282b804b31b2651b580f865aba84.png

8.500 C64 and 2.500 Amiga games are also waiting to import but to match them with the GamesDB is horrible and I will wait until there is a easy to use solution for that.

 

I am also trying to match around 1.700 games with the DB. mostly MSX1 and 2 Games.

 

My Amiga collection is over 30000 roms, don't think anyone is a dublicate

Im going for all ADF's format

My Collection sits close to 23 thousand at this point. However I have some PC titles to add still and might remove some things that I never touch anyway like MSX/MSX2.

Close 120,000 with overall 146 systems, though I have some doubles and I count Steam, Uplay, Origin and GOG as separate platforms, which means a few more doubles. 26 of the platforms have at least one screenshot and/or cover missing, the rest has at least a single picture associated with each game. I'll add Origin, Switch and XBox One next with the latter two being just dummies which point to my gaming rack as I won't emulate any of them soon.

I think my collection is almost complete. I have close to 9,000 games now. Just need to load my Wii and WiiU games and find psp and vita games.

Yeah started to review and weed my collection back. I did have the complete Wii collection (2.06TB) but decided to remove alot of the shovelware leaving it at 697GB. Did a similar thing with my PS2 games.

I use to think I wanted a complete collection from every system. The only complete collections I have are NES, SNES, and I think the Sega Genesis and N64 too. As far as PS1, PS2, Wii, Dreamcast, and the psp systems I’ll stick with what I want to play since those files are so large.

I struggled with having a complete set and then not having a complete set. For the older systems it was a bit easier to just have it as it didn't take much space up and not have to pick things out. As far PS1, dreamcast, etc when you use the right tools you can compress those sets like PS1 - PBP files and dreamcast - CHD files. It ends up saving alot of space and still maintain a full set. Aside from that I have picked the best of breed for PS2 and Wii so some of those can translate for an arcade cabinet and for a home console PC. Not really interested in WiiU as WiiU is the system Nintendo would like you to forget anyway. I will say that once I have a complete set and then the complete media its a huge weight off your shoulders knowing that your not looking around for other games you missed. Your done and you have your library now sit back and enjoy.

Question is, how do you know when you have a complete set? What reference do you use? And are you talking complete set for just one region?

for NES, SNES, and Sega Genesis I went with what google or Wikipedia told me what was a full US set. If the number of files matched then I figured I had a full set.

i do the same, and remove any multi cart games if they have single roms also, no need to have the same game 3 times in a set. my Japanese translations tend to be included in the game set apart from famicom and super famicom (as i class these as there own consoles rather then nes/snes)

So I used multiple methods. For starters I used the most recent HyperSpin XML List. Not saying this truly shows the fullest but I also hit a few different sites wiki, gamesdb, just googled for results to find a listing and went through it. I know it sounds tedious but once done your done. I do have full sets separate for non-english systems too instead of mixed in the main USA release Ex - SNES, SFC.  I can share with you my AUDIT LIST  if that helps to verify what you have and don't have.

FYI there is no right or wrong answer on how you want to setup your collection. Some people just want the top 10 games or maybe the games they played with while others just want it all. The size of games are generally not the issue until you get into later systems such as PS2, Wii but the media side of it takes up a fair amount of space and requires more time to collection. Price of hard drives are coming down (149 8TB external USB, 199 10TB external USB). I personally just want to have it all until I get to PS2 and beyond as those systems just have a ton of shovel ware and games I just don't care to sink tons of adult hours into but will spend time with the games I gear up with arcade, nes, ones, etc.
