ListCache.xml file is corrupt


Recommended Posts

Hey there, I've been amassing quite a bit of stuff in Launchbox and upgraded my motherboard in my retro arcade to work almost perfectly with the United theme except for attract mode which I disabled but not too important at this point. Recently I've been adding Amiga adf files and editing the settings for each game and I noticed when I would make a settings change there was a delay and the resolution of the launchbox program itself would "stretch" and sometimes freeze and crash the program after exiting the edit settings unless I gave it a bit of time to go back to the normal look or resolution. So I just tried to open it and I had an xml error before but not the same exact message and i was able to re-install from the most recent update and everything would come back to normal. At this point everytime i reinstall from the update launchbox folder it gives the same error. It will initially load with no content and then when i close and re-open it gives the error in the picture below. The last time I had the different xml error it did come up, but again not this time and I am hesitant to uninstall and re-install lest i lose everything. I'm open to suggestions on how to fix. Havent seen this particular error exactly like this before. Think my game count is 20,000. Thanks.

Yes, what you said worked my friend. I did a Windows 10 search for the file and it only came back now. Oh, how I hate Windows 10. Maybe I'm the minority but... Anyways i went to launchbox/data folder for the newbies and also went to launchbox/backup folder. I tried the the most recent backup and got the same error then went back to the beginning of the day from the backup. In the data folder I renamed the current "listcache.xml" file to "listcachexml.old" I then renamed renamed the file I copied from that backup to the correct file name and it worked ☯.

I might post a good walkthrough on how to use WinUae with Launchbox as the FS-UAE doesnt cut the mustard in my opinion. I got it almost seemless so far.


@Zombeaver did a big video tutorial for FS-UAE and LB and it works great. I also use FS-UAE without issues with WHDLoad and ADF format games, CD32 stuff is more of a pain in the ass though.

Thanks, if it should happen again I'll try to delete the xml. Yeah FS-UAE I had some issues with the pointer emulation not working so great. Tried to play Lemmings / Populous and the lag was so bad it made it difficult to click on an object. WinUAE seemed to work quite a bit better, the pointer was flawless and emulation just runs super smooth on most stuff. Got it down where I can launch the games separately in Launchbox but there are a couple more tweaks to implement with disk swapping. I briefly went over your video but the lag with that emulator made me think it wasn't worth it. Was kinda surprised because I think that runs off the same basic engine as winuae.
