But is it possible to ALSO have the volume as in previous versions of BigBox where it was not possible to select music in Game?

Unfortunately I'm confused by what you mean. Can you explain?

Yes, that's exactly what we use. We sound those volume down and volume up keys. That's what we've always done.

the STRONGNESS is that if the volume of Windows is adjusted through the keyboard, there is no slowing down in the retroarch. At this point I suspect that the keyboard drivers use APIs different from those that microsoft documents on the site.

There are no keyboard drivers involved, other than the standard ones. This issue has nothing to do with the keyboard or the keyboard keys that we are sending. It has everything to do with the controllers. We already figured this out and we know exactly what's going on. Retroarch is interpreting button combinations incorrectly. Again, it has nothing to do with the keyboard.

I understood, but the fact is that if I use a keyboard that also has the volume control of Windows. If I increase or decrease the keyboard volume while I'm in GAME, I have no slowdown. Thus, keyboard manufacturers will have low-level access other than the APIs they offer to developers. Unfortunately they can no longer access this information today.

That's because the issue has nothing to do with any keyboards or keys. It's a glitch with controller button combos in Retroarch.

however, now that I have based the whole emulation of my bartop with retroarch and launchbox, I can adjust the volume only from a keyboard and no longer in Big Box. For this I preferred the volume which can only be adjusted from bigBox and not from InGame :(

Respectfully, you've been posting about your issue for a week in the release thread.  Those of us who are subscribed to this thread would like to hear about new releases and upcoming features. Instead, we're constantly being spammed nonstop with tech support posts.

How about starting your own thread in the Troubleshooting forum?

Or heaven forbid, submitting a formal bug report to either LB or the Retroarch team?

Respectfully, this thread isn't about new releases or upcoming features its about issues with the latest beta and frankly post like that are what cause drama between memebers of the community which isn't something that we like to have here so unless you are a moderator you shouldn't be trying to impose your version of forum etiquette on someone who is reporting their issue with a beta on a beta thread.

@dov_EL Let's take your issue to another thread if we need to continue discussing it. I'm pretty sure there's nothing I can do from a development standpoint though.

This is indeed a beta thread, so it is definitely for beta troubleshooting and discussion, but I know that back-and-forth banter like this can be annoying to some people. Regardless, I would appreciate it if we were all a little more gentle with our words, because yes, it does cause unnecessary drama.

  • Fixed: Errors were sometimes occuring when using the "Switch to Desktop Mode" option from Big Box

 

Thanks for fixing this, Jason! I presume this is in the official 10.6 update that came out, and is no longer in beta?
