password protection for launchbox like bigbox

Recommended Posts

Hello everyone,

I'm trying to reach the community on adding a locking feature to launchbox similar to that of bigbox. 

I'm very new to the community and I've sent a message to the administrators and replied on another user's account asking for the same feature. I hope this topic isn't overkilled by me trying by reaching out too many sources asking for the same thing but as I said, I'm new here and I'm learning on how to navigate in this great community. 

I hope to hear from other users and coders for this add on feature. I hope is a simple add-on.

thanks.

I haven't seen that feature requested enough, but that doesn't meat that @Jason Carr wont consider adding it later.

I just hope that someone can get around to it and hopefully in the near future. I know its a great feature and great for managing all the content in lauchbox; but that's just me. Thank you for ur feedback.

I am very interested in a parental control password to BigBox, but I'm curious to why you'd want it in LaunchBox.   LaunchBox is like the administrative tool to set things up and maintain it.  Other users shouldn't have access to it. BigBox is the final result of your efforts.  BigBox is what you present to your family and friends.  MetalRaven, do you own a BigBox license?  If not, it's the best $20-$50 you'll spend.

I've worked so hard to label and categorize my games based on my personal preference but for some reason, my kids somehow delete or move my categories, and I have to reload my backup files all the time. This is the reason why I want a simple lock feature in launchbox so that no one can change my settings.  I hope this feature is added in the next release... Bigbox has this feature and is a simple feature to add to launchbox. Thanks.

Best way to make a feature request is by going to the help & support header of the forums and choose request a feature from the menu.

@James35telling someone to just buy BigBox isn't a legitimate answer for someones request whether or not you think it should be a feature or if people should buy BB or not is irrelevant.

@DOS76 You are probably right. I am just blown away by all the features that are in this program.  Best piece of software that I've seen in the last decade.  As a programmer, I know the level of effort that Jason has put into this and it frustrates me when people won't pony up $20 because they want everything added to the free version.  Sometimes this arcade community is very spoiled because we are used to "downloading" stuff.  LaunchBox and BigBox has saved me so much time. It's so worth the money.

We are glad you are enjoying the program and I agree it is worth the money, but not everyone likes to use BigBox. I'm a premium member and I personally use LB 99.9% of the time its what I prefer for functionality over form.

@james35, I'm a premium member and I have bigbox with my themes already installed and all, but not everyone is my household uses bigbox, some prefer launchbox instead. With that said, I'm only asking for a simple feature where I can lock down all my filters and categories that fit my needs and not have someone delete them or move them around. 

@DOS76, I installed a theme for lauchbox that looks similar to plex, and let me tell ya, I think it's fcking amazing! lol I find myself leaning more on lauchbox in the most recent days since installing that theme! Look it up man, I think you'll be happy with the overall look!

I've had the Plex theme for a while now but have recently been using the Neon Arcade Deluxe theme.
