I'm loving LaunchBox Next!

Recommended Posts

I'm loving the new LaunchBox Next! It's obviously missing a lot of features right now but that's to be expected. My absolute favorite new thing about LaunchBox Next is how it loads your boxart images into memory. No more waiting for them to load up one or a couple at a time. It only happens the first time you view them all, but once that's done never again. It runs smoothly. I really hope it stays this way. Thanks for your hard work guys. It's appreciated.

Hey Orionsangel, it's me, Dan, Retrochan your MAME bezel collaborator :) I agree with the above, LB Next is a definite step in the right direction!

No problem Jason. You've really taken Emulation to a whole new level. You know that since 95 I dreamed of software to organize my games. You made it come true. I can't thank you enough, Jason.

And if anyone is interested in having their MAME games appear as authentic as possible, check out Orionsangel's realistic MAME bezels! :)

The performance difference between regular launchbox and launchbox.NEXT is phenomenal! NEXT performs way faster :)

Is there any chance that such an improvement could be applied to BigBox also in the future?

LBNext is just LB using the same code language as BB so while not saying performance improvements aren't possible in BB it isn't like it will be rebuilt in a new language and work faster like LBN is doing.

Though it may not seem like it due to all the added fancy graphics (which do require more hardware resources), Big Box is already on par with LaunchBox.Next performance-wise.

Thanks for the reply. I'll probably upgrade my total ram count from 8gb to at least 12gb. There's a constant stuttering going on with my BB, but I know some users on the forums that has a way bigger library than mine and it looks like theirs are running fine.

I spent too much time adding content than polishing my setup. Plus with some of the features that were chosen on the last poll, so much great things to come, it's a never ending project :D
