Emulating BeebEm


Recommended Posts

Quick (hopefully) question,

I have the BeebEm emulator and roms. I have learned how to start BBC roms through the BeebEm (File, load disk 0, then press shift and F12) and the game will start. Is it possible to have LB autostart (handle the shift+F12) for me when I click on a game to launch it? If so, how can I do that? I appreciate any help.

I recently downloaded this emulator, and one of the games told me that the fire button is the "copy" button. I went to the help file that came with the emulator, which says copy is the "end" key on modern PCs, but whenever I press the end key, nothing happens, even though the game says that the copy button is the fire button in the game.

BeebEm doesn't use any command line parameters when set up in LaunchBox.

Your posted image looks ok and I presume you have the Associated Platform set - if not you'd have had a prompt to do so.

If your games launch directly with BeebEm but not via LaunchBox then it may be that LaunchBox is not aware of their location.
Right click on any game in LaunchBox and open the Edit > Edit Metadata/Media option. Click on Launching and check that the ROM File path pointed to by LaunchBox matches the actual location of the game.
