How do region priorities work?

Recommended Posts

Hi there, I've been noticing that a lot of times Launchbox tends to prioritize regions that I wouldn't expect based on my settings.

I've selected 5 regions in the region priorities and ordered them as so:

- US

- North America

- World

- Europe

- Japan

 

Based on this, I would expect launchbox to prioritize US over Japan for images, and use US as the default option when merging multi-region ROMs.

However as an example, I have G-Loc Air Battle on Gamegear. There are three versions of the rom:

- G-LOC - Air Battle (Japan) (Rev 1)

- G-LOC - Air Battle (Japan)

- G-LOC - Air Battle (USA, Europe, Brazil)

 

Launchbox is prioritizing The first one, (Japan) (Rev 1), but I would prefer the version including USA. Maybe it's not working because Europe and Brazil are also present, or because of the (Rev 1)? 

 

Please help!

besides editing the game and going to the additional apps tab and changing the default facing game there isn't really much you can do about it.

@DOS76, launchbox offers the option to prioritize and select/deselect regions. Does it not seem reasonable to assume that that feature would prioritize default version of the game when there are multiple?

definitely sounds reasonable and should work that way but when its wrong that is how you can fix it.

Here is a thread on the issue. In the thread Jason did say he has put this on his list to look into. The post was just under a month ago and I do not think I have seen any release notes updating this so it is likely Jason will get to it in time.
