LaunchBox for Android 0.6 Beta Released!

Recommended Posts

There is still a crash coming through with 0.10 that I haven't figured out, but we're down to only one left at least. I'll be diving into that one later today.

I do need to clarify some things with the above though: no, the app and the data do not have to be on the same data storage. You can, in my testing, install the app onto your internal storage and export the data to your SD card; that should work. However, the folder path always has to be /Android/data/com.unbrokensoftware.launchbox/files/LaunchBox, regardless of whether it's on the SD card or internal storage.

Also, @krater9 is correct in saying that it can only be in one location at a time. The default location is in your device's internal storage, so if you have already used the app and you want to export to your SD card, you'll need to delete the LaunchBox folder in your internal storage. After seeing the difficulty with that, I'll probably make that easier here going forward.

Ah thats good to now, so its the fact that the app is on both storage devices that is causing the confusion. Gotcha.

Actually, no; it's the fact that the *data* is on both storage devices. The app itself's files aren't really accessible.

Version .10 still crashing, Nvidia shield. 

Can you try deleting the /Android/data/com.unbrokensoftware.launchbox folder from your internal storage and/or SD card? This seems to be happening only to a handful of users and all I can figure at this point is that maybe it's a file permissions error.

I'll be putting out a new version soon that has better error reporting to track it down.

OK. I did notice that it requires root permission . Can this be a factor?

So I purchased and installed, but aparently the platforms section shows blank, options only gives language settings, then the about section with the link to the main site. Is this a common problem? Btw I have roms, emulators and retroarch with cores installed on my device as well.

I've submitted the 0.10 release; hopefully it will go live quickly like the last one did. This should hopefully fix the crash on startup issues after accepting permissions.

Update 0.10 has fixed the white screen crash for me on shield tv. I can now see my snes and nes games (did a small export for testing) will add more systems and keep testing. Ty so much for the fix!

Still having issues with Nvidia shield and white screen, have deleted the /android/data/com.unbrokensoftware.launchbox folder from the internal storage but still a no go. Uninstalled and reinstalled, S9 is still reading with no issues however.

Im having issues on Shield TV.  I've exported some platforms from PC and moved then to the Launchbox folder on the Shield (under Android ... etc).  Nothing is shown in the platforms screen.
