Duplicated “All”

Recommended Posts

Hi, I seem to have accidentally created an “All” platform category, and cannot seem to get rid of the duplicate. Right clicking on either one just gives “grayed-out” options. Cannot delete or change either one. Does anyone know how to fix this? I have tried using backup xml files but do not think I fully know how to use it properly since I do not haves LaunchBox.xml file in the root folder. I am running latest version of LaunchBox. Any advice would be appreciated.

Yea no problem. Out right now (on mobile) but, will definitely get the folder to you. To answer your question of how, I was trying to create a platform category named favorites to be able to see it in BigBox alongside Arcade, Computer, Console and Handhelds but, was not appearing. So I edit the playlist to be included in a platform category under All but, I had to manually type it in since the option was not there. This did not yield the result I was looking for, so I deleted the playlist but All was duplicated and is now stuck. Thanks again.

You can right-click on one of the Arcade Classics entries to edit it. Then go to the Parents tab and unselect the Root node. That should do it. :)

It does not work, when I take the box selection from the options an error message appears saying that I should choose at least one option, and if I delete the platform, or the category, it deletes all my games from both options.
