Saving box art to external hard drive - Nvidia Shield

Recommended Posts

I am using the Nvidia Shield and I have a 5TB external drive hooked up too it.  On the drive I have all my roms, but it is not formatted for device storage as I still want to view the drive on my PC as well if needed.  So how can I get it to download all the data for Launchbox (especially the box art/images) onto the external drive that has all the roms, but still be able to plug the drive into the PC.  I can access the roms from Lauchbox on the external drive, but when downloading the images it saves onto the internal space.

 

Thanks

@Retro4Ever You should be able to just move the /Android/data/com.unbrokensoftware.launchbox folder over to the same location on your external hard drive, and LaunchBox will pick it up. Make sure you remove the folder from your internal storage, and make sure LaunchBox is closed before doing so.

I will try it again.  I was using FX app but I couldn't 1 find the folder that had the images and 2nd I would select copy but it won't let me paste anything anywhere.  I will give it a look over again today, thanks for the info and reply.

I had to download a different app.  I was able to move the folder like you mentioned and it seems to be working.  

Quick question, instead of starting a topic just for this.  On the Nvidia Shield when selecting Platforms then your platform of choice with the box art, I can't access the "more options" (Box View, Emulator settings) without the use of a cursor.  The Nvidia Shield remote or the Dual Shock remote won't select the top right corner for the menu option, not without a track pad (which I am using at the moment).

 

Thanks for the help.

You do need a controller in order to press the Y button to open that menu currently. I am aware of the remote issue, but since you can't really play games with just a remote anyways, it hasn't been a priority to fix.
