Games Disappearing from my launchbox libraries

Recommended Posts

I have two games in my launch box that disappear seemingly every time I close the program and open it again.

I have to re-import them both every time I start launchbox back up.

The games are "silhouette mirage" for the ps167062-silhouette-mirage-playstation-front-cover.thumb.jpg.edfb9255e9cf4d2b3b5bb8b16b7b16c6.jpg and castlevania lament of innocence" for the ps2.28822-castlevania-lament-of-innocence-playstation-2-front-cover.thumb.jpg.253b74a7a35f1132ae24c7153a7a8563.jpg

If anyone has any idea why this might be happening I would appreciate any help.

The imports go to the platform xmls files. So for example, your ps1 game should be added to your LaunchBox\Data\Platforms\Sony Playstation.xml file sort of like this:

 <Game>
    <ApplicationPath>..\Arcade\Sony Playstation\roms\Silhouette Mirage (USA).cue</ApplicationPath>
    <CommandLine />
    <Completed>false</Completed>
    <ConfigurationCommandLine />

So, after you import the game, you can search the xml file for this game while LB is still running and see if it got written to that file. But then make sure you close the xml file. Then close LB and check the file again. If it's still in there, it should remain on next launch. At least this should give you some ideas on where to start looking.

I have this same problem.  I had multiple titles disappear, the only common thread is that they are PS2 (though not all of my PS2 files, just over half of them, seemingly at random).  I can re-add them but they disappear as soon as I close and reopen the program.  

I checked the Playstation 2 xml file and the missing games are still listed.  They just don't appear in Launchbox.

Someone was able to fix this issue? In my case, game is disappearing from list after run any game. I have to re-import it to see it again. Please help.

Make sure you do not have any of these boxes in the view dropdown checked.
