Controller on the Shield TV is still fubar on 0.21. Can't navigate games or menus, the highlighted item continually jumps back to the top.

This means that your controller is busted. The right stick is apparently loose.

Could we add the Beetle SGX core in Launchbox for PC Engine SuperGrafx? 

I've been able to launch 1941 in Retroarch using that core. 

Thanks!

Added to my to-do list. :)

Hi Jason/All

Loving the work as ever, couple of questions (I did look but couldn't see the answers honestly 😁)

Atari 5200 do i need to put the BIOS somewhere? or is it not working yet Android?

Amiga, same do I need to put Kickstart somewhere? or is it not working yet Android?

As when I try to run both I just get black screen, sorry if answered before , I did have a look but couldn't see anything.

Cheers all

I know Atari 5200 is confirmed not working (outside of kat5200 which is not downloadable at the moment). I have not tested Amiga at all at this point.

Hey guys! First I just have to say how exited I am about the Android version became reality! I haven't yet tested it out due to it's early stage and also because I mainly play more challenging systems like PS2, Wii, Wii U etc... which brings me to my question; Will it be possible to launch games that are stored on a NAS device in the android app, or do all games have to be stored on the android device you're playing on? I store all my PS1, PS2, Wii & Wii U games on my NAS due to massive file sizes so it would be awesome if in future versions of the app it would be possible to launch games directly from NAS. But even if it's not I'm still super exited to try this app out soon. Especially on my Nvidia Shield device!

Currently, it all has to be stored on the device, as far as I know. I've noticed that the nVidia Shield TV will let you mount a network folder as storage though, so it's possible that it would work. I just haven't tried it.

On the Game Boy emulator setting page it says "Default core", then the name of the core, I think it was Sameboy or something.

Does this mean, that the default core, is the best core possible for Game Boy ?

It means it's the default core for that platform (eventually we will probably allow game-specific emulators and cores).

Question - after exporting, if i wanted to delete a duplicate game (scraped as a duplicate) how can i delete it from within the app?

Unfortunately, currently you would have to re-export without that game. We will be adding a delete option soon though.

Hmmm...working elsewhere. The right stick? Left navigates.

The right stick is used to navigate more quickly through the items in the list. There was one other user who had the same issue and we discovered that it was because of the right stick being too loose.

I do most of my testing on my own Shield TV, so I'm very certain that it's not a bug. Apparently the Shield controllers are prone to that issue though. I'm guessing it's not an issue elsewhere because the right stick isn't usually used for navigation elsewhere.

Ahh ok gotcha. Didn't know about the right stick fast nav thing. I'll check it out, thanks.

If you have an Xbox One controller laying around, I've found that they work just as well (arguably better). The power button works the same as the home button, and you don't accidentally hit one of those tiny buttons on the bottom when you meant to hit a different one.

Congratulations Jason we are out of beta.

Great work so far.

Never really played around with Dreamcast ems before, what format should the files be in to launch? (trying retroarch) 

Got all the usual suspects working on the app.(huawei p20 pro) 

Nes,snes, gb's, 64,Gen, psp ps1, 

Apart from ps2, but I know ps2 is not available yet. 

Game cube would be great when it's possible. 

 

This app is really good and growing fast. 

Can't wait to see what you have planned in the coming weeks.

Awesome I'll try that after work. 

I have Dolphin installed but I guess I didn't scrap my GC library. 

Thanks.

i just have a general question about the "opt in" program.... I am currently a lifetime license owner for bigbox and it is legit. if i'm in a beta testing program why does the beta cost money? I know its only 5 bucks. I am just curious. heck windows 10 beta is free to test threw thier insiders. I figured because I have the  highest tier license for unbroken software i would be able to test the beta of an unreleased os version, but i guess not. .. bottom line is if i can sqeeze the fin i'll get the app and test it but for now i am limited due to this stipulation. its kinda like when i found out the music app to be fully unlocked requires another license as well. don't get me wrong lifetime liscence is the way to go if you can get it... in the long run its saved ma aot of reinstaement mula$$$ :)

Anyway we can donate to the work put in so far. 

The feed back  and update speed has been well worth a 5er.

LaunchBox for Android has been out of beta since early Monday morning. Unfortunately a purchase from us for one product is not going to enable access to every product we ever put out. I really appreciate your purchases though. :)

Thank you guys; I really do appreciate it. I will do my best to keep the updates consistently coming, but of course I do have to focus on the Windows apps for a bit now first. It won't be long though.

Per donations, I really appreciate the offers, but since we are a business (and not a non-profit organization), I chose to stop taking donations a while ago.

OK thanks for letting us know. 

Much respect. 

Got my hands on my new pegi 9083 today.. 

(saitake 7007X clone died before first charge) 

It rattles lol but it should work.. 

Not good when it's fresh out the box.. 

 

But I look forward to road testing some gameplay at last..

I searched, but did not find anything related to whether or not there are plans for this to be released on the Amazon App store for Amazon devices that cannot have the Play store yet. I have a few 4K Fire TV sticks that Amazon blocked the Play store on.

Thanks @WhiteNoseThunderPants. Honestly, I hadn't thought of that until just yesterday. I am looking into getting it up on the Amazon store. :)

Get the apps2fire app from the Google playstore and use it to send it to your Fire Stick.

@neil9000, I was going to try that this evening when I got home if there was not another option. I've used that for other apps before. Thanks for the suggestion.

Yeah it works to install Launchbox and it loads up fine on my 4K stick, thats as far as i have got so far though, i need to do a mini export and get Retroarch on my stick, but the app itself works as far as i can tell so far.
