No, not as a setting in the LB UI. It is based on emulator since that is what the delay affects.

Just wish we had more time options on setting the delay.

1-30 seconds not enough?

I think we must be talking about something different Neil. Game Startup/Shutdown only has an option slider for 5 secs.

Tools/Manage Emulators/Emulator Name/Startup Screens, there is a slider from 1-30 seconds.

following up on my original question..i found an alternative.

simply editing 3 lines in the Data>Platforms>choose a system

<OverrideDefaultStartupScreenSettings>false</OverrideDefaultStartupScreenSettings>
<StartupLoadDelay>0</StartupLoadDelay>
<UseStartupScreen>false</UseStartupScreen>

You can change the time for each platform as follows..

simply using notepad, select Edit>Replace>

and fill in the required fields..Find what...(one of the default lines as above) Replace with;

<OverrideDefaultStartupScreenSettings>true</OverrideDefaultStartupScreenSettings>
<StartupLoadDelay>3010</StartupLoadDelay>    this can be increased or decreased
<UseStartupScreen>true</UseStartupScreen>

more of a workaround. But works none the less. and now you can have different startup times per platform. Ideal if you use Rocket Launcher for emulation.
