Can't launch SNES games [solved]


Recommended Posts

I have imported (zipped) ROMs for SNES but when I double click the game in Launchbox all that happens is Windows opens the zip archive. 

I can run the emulator standalone, in this case snes9x-x64.exe, and my games work fine. I can also do this from the command line.

The only workaround I have found is to right click a game and select edit, then select the emulation tab, and manually check the box to tell Launchpad to use an emulator. 

Hundreds of ROMs, this isn't a suitable workaround.

Here's some screen shots of various settings...




Launchbox free version 9.5

Windows 10, build 18346

When you imported your games did you have them set to use a different emulator ?

If so you can bulk edit your games to change the emulator. Select all the games in a platform by pressing Control + A and the edit by pressing Control + E, this will start the bulk edit wizard. In the first drop down menu choose Emulator and then in the 2nd drop down menu that appears select the emulator you want to use.
