@GrayskyX could you show us a picture of one of your game edit window please? I did what you said but it launch only Teknoparrot, not the game. The game is working using only Teknoparrot, without Launchbox.

Thanks!

Isnt there two different .exe's for technoparrot, are you launching the correct one?

I'm launching the TeknoParrotUi.exe

Its been a long time since i used teknoparrot, but there used to be two exe's, TeknoparrotUI and i think budgieloader.exe i think you want that one.

It doesn't work but I found OpenParrotLoader64.exe. It doesn't work either but I think it's a syntax problem. I think it's what Game loader all RH use to work with Technoparrot.

I found the solution.

You have to use TeknoParrotUi.exe and do what @Pennywisekrueger said but uncheck "Don't use quotes (primarily for project64 1.6 and lower)" in the Teknoparrot emulator window (in LaunchBox).

I’m having a time getting the games to launch directly from launchbox. When I click on MARIO Kart, teknoparrot loads but it’s the UI screen, not the actual game. 
 

anyone have input?

 

Thanks

I figured it out.  In the final pic, the three boxes above "Sample Command" all have to be unchecked.

you have to create a txt file in the roms folder.  use this as your rom file. so SEGA RALLY 3 would be SegaRally3.txt

follow the --profile= when you set teknoparrot as your emulator and add the system it defaults etc, once imported edit the game, click emulation tab down the bottom, tick use custom commandline parameters, and then add  --profile=xxx.xml file ( for sega rally 3 it is SR3.xml ) (find this under userprofiles in teknoparrot emulator folder) for each game.

No need for that. You just pick the xml file in your Teknoparrot -> UserProfiles directory and it should work fine. (Once configured in Teknoparrot first)

I agree and it's always great  to have many options.

My concern was when you said you have to, just making sure the OP knows that's an option, not a requirement. As your collection grows, keeping things simple and as close to default sure makes maintenance easier. Although I don't intend to make changes once I have my cabinet perfected, even though I have backups, I started keeping a journal of all the changes I make. (this games, uses this different config, or this game uses this AHK to change key maps, etc)
