Just wondering if it's possible to boot one system up with big box

Recommended Posts

I would like to be able to replace the inside of a ps1 with a small computer and have it boot up with a video that looks just like the ps1 does when it is first turned on. Next, have it go directly into a full screen coverflow of my ps1 game collection. Is this possible with big box or a custom theme right now? Thank you!!!

If you only have a single platform and that being the Playstation it might be doable by having the default startup view being set to all games. But if you have more than 1 category you cannot at this current point in time, I have mentioned to @Jason Carr about booting straight to a specific platform or playlist.

Just tested this on my "tester install" of Launchbox and it does work if you only have a single platform and you set BigBox to startup to All Games.

Yeah, you would want to setup BigBox as your shell in Windows, there are tutorials on the net on how to do this but one way is to use the program bbsetshell from this site here http://bb4win.sourceforge.net/bblean/, that would be the cleanest way but if you don't want to change the shell just put a shortcut file for your BigBox in the Startup folder of your start menu.
