10.2-beta-1 Released

Recommended Posts

I just put out yet another new release, 10.4. There was an issue where Big Box was not always saving the bindings when clearing them.

If we use the volume from the keyboard, everything works correctly without slowing down. So it's big box that creates conflict with retroarch when we try to increase or decrease the volume in game

This is certainly interesting; I'm seeing Retroarch go fullscreen and back when I use my button combo. I'm guessing Retroarch can be configured to remove this button combinations. Is this new for the new release?

I mean for Big Box. Is this an issue only for the new releases of LaunchBox? Was it working properly with previous versions?

It works fine for me on our stable release and the latest beta Jason. But I have my LB/BB controls mapped to the same as in Retroarch.

In RA i have mapped only game pad button for game, pause,  and save/load state

@dov_EL I've just confirmed that the volume issue was also an issue in previous releases of LaunchBox. Somehow, it has to just be a duplicate binding in Retroarch. I'll do some more research.

@Retro808 and I have done some testing here. Retroarch is apparently wonky in that it has some default bindings set for hotkeys that do some weird things, and the only way to fix it is to re-set those hotkeys. Basically, Retroarch's hotkey menu is lying in that there are controller hotkeys defined by default that don't show up in the menu (at least that's my best understanding of what's going on).

What has fixed it for @Retro808 is binding the same buttons to the same functions in Retroarch. So, for volume up and volume down, bind the same two buttons to that in Retroarch and in Big Box, and in theory that should fix it. Ultimately, though, this appears to be a bug in Retroarch.

No combo in Retroarch. Only one button 😣

Why why?

@dov_EL You set the hotkey. That is the hold key, then you set volume up and then volume down. 1 key each. 

For example in launchbox I set button 6 (select) and button 8 (right bumper) as my combo for volume up (volume down is 6 + 7). So in RA I set button 6 as the Hotkey (the hold key), then button 8 and volume up and button 7 as volume down.

When going back from "all games" on BigBox, it takes you to a previous selected filter (Like regions or publisher)  instead of the options menu. Is that the intended behaviour?

Not quite sure what you mean. My steps will work for Launchbox or BigBox.

In the LaunchBox settings (bigBox) it is possible to use 2 buttons in combo for the function) hold + button 1 or 2 etc), in retroarch the volume can be set with a single function key and not with the combo.

To be honest, not really, but I guess it does make sense. ;)

Just tested it; I wouldn't call it a significant issue. If you set All Games as your default startup view, it does work properly after a restart of Big Box. Otherwise you just have a second view to go through to get there.
