Cool Kodi has a similar feature with animated covers.  Not sure who makes them or where Kodi pulls them from 🤔... Curious does steam provide them in this case 

It is down to the software developers, , a couple have made them, otherwise i have seen them being placed on reddit, but like the standard covers, not many people are making a standard size, they just seem to upload any size they want, as i think the dimensions shold be 600x900. But one drawback to the animated covers, or via the Steam Ui, is that it makes everything too busy on the screen. Image launchbox, just using video snaps all laid out together on the screen and all playing at once, you would end up going bonkers hahahahahahah

Launchbox with retroarch also suffers from another problem which in the end was accentuated, ie it is the FIRST launch of the game after the initial start. The upload goes intermittently while the bigbox animations continue until the game is started.

@Jason Carr

 have you decided how to do with the volume? A solution could be to add in the options the possibility to choose whether to select only if to increase or decrease the volume in BigBox or even in Game, so they are all happy (maybe).

I haven't really come up with a solution yet. I still haven't figured out what on earth Retroarch is doing in that regard, or how it could be a new issue. I do plan to look into it soon.

probably the problem lies between retroarch and windows and video drivers. I am sure that MS also offers other ways for volume commands, you should look for a group of developers, they will certainly offer different solutions than those used.

@dov_EL That can be fixed by adjusting the startup screen timing settings in the emulator settings.

I tried, the problem is not solved. Also because it is only the first start that causes this "problem", because thanks to the Windows superfetch, at the second start of the software the times are halved considerably and therefore the problem disappears.

A solution could be:
Until retroarch.exe is started, bigbox must be frozen. Only when retroarch.exe is closed, launchbox.exe must resume its activity.

@dov_EL I'll note that, but unfortunately I can't go making changes to the startup screens right now. I don't think that's a common issue, because most people aren't experiencing that slow of emulator load times. Startup screens were always known to be slightly finicky, which is why I waited years to even consider tackling them. So we'll have to live with them as-is for now.

I just tested for this, and it's clearly a Retroarch issue and not a LaunchBox issue. I went back and tested it with LaunchBox 9.10, and it was definitely still an issue back then, so clearly it doesn't have anything to do with any recent controller changes.

Retroarch just appears to be bugged with the controller shortcuts out of the box. The only solution that I've found is to override the shortcuts so that Retroarch stops using invalid defaults.

I think RA is focusing on the Android side right now more than the PC, I let it automatically update to 1.7.8 on my android devices and caused me nightmares on 3 shield devices. I had to delete everything concerning emulation on all of them and rebuild everything from scratch using 1.7.7, took me a couple days, was not happy.

Also have had issues since 1.7.8 no longer seeing any of my mapped windows drives. Even done a net use script and it works, but only after PC is completely booted up, then run my script (batch file with RA see mapped drives. Of course everything else on the network see the mapped drives fine.

I see they have 1.7.9 out now and I won't let anything update until I see how other folks are faring with it.

I am a HUGE supporter of RA, but I am not sure whats going on with them at the moment??

The first 10.6 beta is out here:

I am hoping that it resolves any remaining controller issues. Please let me know in the above thread if anyone is still seeing any controller issues after upgrading to 10.6-beta-1.
