Your List of Small Things

Recommended Posts

Random Videos

For the videos (platforms and games) to use the same nomenclature as image media in the sense of - 01,-02, etc. So if for example I place in the Videos/Platform/ folder the videos NES-01.mpg and NES-02.mpg, they will get randomized in the main Platforms wheel every time the NES one is highlighted.

Not a bad idea at all.

A small feature I would love to see is a previous and next button on the Edit Game Modal window to edit multiple games without going back to the main list and having to perform two more clicks to edit the next game in the list.

Another feature I would love to see is the ability to remember a specific name for emumovies to scrape with.  If I prefer to name my collection like `Game: Subtitle`  I don't want to have to change this to `Game - Subtitle` or some other obscure name just to try and get up to date emu movies content again.  Either a emumovies override field added to the Other tab, or some back end magic to handle this would be great.

Is it possible to set a placeholder image for games that have no Box-Front/Box3d images?

This is how it could look like

I've also requested/asked about this exact same idea a few times in the past. It'll get there someday :)

Yep, that is on the list from the last community poll, so Jason should get to it at some stage:

The ability to choose two things (filters) from list view. Standard Windows controls ie clicking the second item+CTRL. Like Action + Horror, or Ubisoft + Ubisoft inc. Latter would especially make it easier to browse through and/or fix the developer/publisher mess.

1. In Bigbox, have a option to cycle back and forth through game lists without having to go back to the platforms menu.

2. In Bigbox, have custom icons (ei. stylized game controller) for favorites for each platforms instead of the star, so you can, at a glance, see what platform the game belong to in a list that has games from multiple platforms, especially lists with multi-platform games. (ei. you have Street Fighter II listed 4 times, but you can't see which console it's for until you look at the game details.

3. In Bigbox and Launchbox, have a way to sort a list so that favorite shows on top but then they also shows later as duplicate down in the non-favorite list. Say you favorite Megaman 2, but not the other Megaman games, you would still want to get a complete list of all the Megaman games when you scroll down the list instead of having Megaman 2 missing since it's sorted as a favorite.

4. I'm no programmer and I have no clue how feasible it is, but could BigBox be faster and snappier and have better performance overall?

To be honest, those are features from Recalbox (and other forks of EmulationStation I guess) that I found incredibly useful.

1. Not sure what you mean exactly, need more details.

2 & 3. That seems reasonable to ask for.

4. We will not be getting into a performance discussion here. You have been very vocal and made your point in several places as of late and I highly recommend you stop posting about it everywhere.

1. Let's say my library has 3 platforms : 1. NES, 2. SNES, 3. N64. I'm currently browsing the SNES list. I would like to be able to swap directly to the NES list by pressing L-button or go to N64 by pressing R-button (I know they currently are bound to page-up and page-down). Basically, I'dd like the ability to bound a button to "Next platform/playlist" and "Previous platform/playlist".

4. Sorry about that, I don't mean to be obnoxious. All that complaining actually got me some answers and a better understanding of Bigbox. Thanks for you help and patience!

1. Ok, that makes more sense.

As for the performance, LB / BB is a Windows based product with a near infinite possible combinations of hardware and software along with 3 different versions of Windows. There are so many factors at play in what may cause performance issues for people. Recalbox / Emulation Station is built primarily for a Raspberry Pi which is a hard set hardware software combination, that makes it much easier to program and design for.

Only 2 things from me;


1. Launchbox remembers the tick box settings for what media to import upon importing new roms, EXCEPT for the steam games import dialogue.
presume it's a oversight as it's obviously possible in the other equivalent dialogues.

2. assignable key-commands/macros, for keys but hopefully for joypad too. Would really love a way to assign "choose random game" for example.

Added an extra asterisk to the "Fully editable controller and keyboard functionality in BigBox." entry and added a new entry for the Steam image import since it may have been an over site.

On the topic of controller options, please add a deadzone adjustment for BigBox.

Added that to the controller customization entry

Turn LB into a server and create an official TV OS App for Big Box allowing you to stream/play your games anywhere in your house. I know there is already a method with GeForce experience but it would be better to have an officially established app and functionality.

I know this isn't exactly the same thing, but I wrote a launcher that I use for BigBox + GameStream the deals with miners, multiple monitors, and let's you run custom scripts before/after streaming.  Should work with the NVidia official GameStream service or moonlight.

While I think this would be a handy feature for some this really falls outside of the scope of this thread which is for "small" things that improve the already existing features of LB.

Lol yeah need a thread called total rewrite of applications scope and goals. I would also love to see a server client model adapted by LB but don't know how well it would perform so don't know how feasible it would be.
