The Best?!?

View File

A collection of playlists and clear logos for the top games from a a large number of consoles, computers, and handhelds. Most folders contain a Gold, silver, bronze, and best playlist (which combines the bronze, silver, and gold)

Below you will find links to all the spreadsheets for the sources I used to compile the data. REMINDER: These are not in order of “Best” these are in order of mentions based upon aggregating a number of “Best of” lists. In some cases, smaller lists, or higher ranked games were given greater weight to arrive at a more balanced list.

 I have omitted some systems - either because there weren’t enough quality games released, games are still being released, or I don’t have them in my Launchbox set-up (yet).

These took me a long time to compile. I hope they are helpful.

Best of lists now include:

I successfully implemented the Atari 2600 lists but I'm having trouble with a few other systems - is there a specific file naming convention we must follow for LB to pick these up and add them into the proper platform? Basically, what's the proper "installation" process? Thanks!

Using somebody else's playlists means you need to have the exact same games with the exact same naming as they do, or else the list wont populate correctly.

I'm seeing games just fine. Do the playlist names need to match the system names exactly to be picked up by LB?

Also, @Mr.Laor you mention a Arcade list in your OP but I don't see this folder group in the zip you provided.

I dont know if it can help but:

 

try to change the view in LB to "playlist" and then search them there. Maybe you have to select the right "parent" to nest them correctly.

The playlist name can be what you want. In some BB themes there are already some playlists images and if you want to use them you have to match the same name.

But LB can read a playlist called "SAKLJDKLASJDLKAJKSLK" to be used with any system.

That was exactly it, thank you for the reminder/tip to change the view! Thank you so much for the helpful answer! Yep, all I had to do was to change the sort title and make sure the Parent was set.
