Launchbox takes a long time saving when importing a rom.

Recommended Posts

Hello hello.

is there any way to shorten save times when importing?, I was used to around 30 seconds but now it takes around 2 minutes (It happened after i updated from ver. 8.5 to the newest).

my game library is quite big but it was also big before i updated?, It would be really cool if there was something i could do about it.

 

Is anyone experiencing this as well?

Yeah mine takes a good few minutes too, but I assumed it was maybe the download speed of covers etc from emumovies.

Yeah it's a little strange, A single nes rom shouldn't take 2 minutes to save.

Just wanted to ask if it's safe rolling back the update by using the update folder in Launchbox?.

 

Regards.

I do not think it has anything to do with the updates. I have seen this sporadically during my use over the years with Launchbox. Oddly enough many times closing out Launchbox or rebooting the pc stopped it from happening. Sometimes though it would just randomly go back to normal a few minutes later without doing anything. 

 I just imported 10 pc games and all only took a few seconds to download media and each took about 1-2 seconds to save after the media downloaded. 

This is on my test pc running the latest beta and on my main arcade.

Ok, But i had this problem for about a week now.

I also thought it would solve itself, But i have restarted Launchbox and my pc several times during the last 7 days, and nothing has changed?.

I have never experienced importing and saving after just a few seconds, Can i borrow your lucky trousers 😀 ?

LOL. 

Yeah I am not sure what it is. I do not think anything Jason released in the last update altered scraping and importing games. I just know I have randomly seen what you mentioned. When I am talking save I mean the point at which after the media is done downloading the progress bar changes to Now Saving. It is from that point randomly I would get where it took like 1-2 minutes before the prompt showing how many games were imported. Normally it is only a couple seconds.

Yep the 2 first steps are pretty smooth, It's the now saving part that takes a couple of minutes in my case.

BTW is it safe rolling back?, It Might or might not fix it (Who knows).

You can roll back. Just look for the last version of the install you want to use in the /Launchbox/Updates folder.

Just wanted to say it helped reverting back to Launchbox ver. 8.7. Now I'm back on 20-30 seconds for saving a file.

Not saying it's the updates fault, But somehow it must be related to it.
