10.15-beta-1 Released

I have an issue with some imported Origin games.

I can't start the Origin version anymore when a game from Origin gets merged with another version of the same game (in my case the Steam or GOG versions). Origin opens up but nothing happens.

When I edit the merged game (doesn't matter if I change a field as long as I close it with the OK button) the game also loses its Origin badge. Once the Origin version has lost its Origin badge it stays broken even when you expand the games into their individual entries. In this case the only fix right now is to delete the broken Origin entry and re-import it.

If the Origin version gets imported as its own entry (or gets expanded before you change something in the Edit window) it launches perfectly fine and editing the game details doesn't seem to do any harm as well. But it breaks again when you merge it.

I've tested this with multiple games and they all had the same issues.

Are you still having this issue on current version of the beta? I know we had issues similar to that in some of the earlier build but was under the impression we had those taken care of at this point. Will do some testing again on my end and see if I can still replicate.

I was just trying to record a short video showing how I use the Pause Theme to show my custom control layout for each game. After pausing a game, then returning to the games text list; when I was scrolling through the games, BigBox hard quit to the desktop in a split second. See the first attached Debug log for that.

I then reopened BigBox, opened a game, and was unable to use the Pause Theme screen to quit the game. I instead had to use Escape. I was able to activate the Pause screen, but not quit the game. See the second Debug log for that. Not in this case, but many other ones, the pause them is unable to even open after having issues - I think I remember reading Jason say this is a Theme issues - in this case, the Colorful theme.

The entire Big Box Pause Theme seems very flaky to me, in need for some thorough investigation from the devs. It is such a great feature, but very unstable and aggravating to use sometimes in BigBox, due to its inconsistency.
Theme: Colorful
Pause Theme: Game Controls

There are some unfortunate known issues with the pause themes and any Big Box themes that use eatkinola's themer plugin. This was a recent discovery. I'm guessing if you switch to a theme that doesn't use that plugin, the issues will likely go away. Can you test?

Sorry to add another issue; but, I have been having BigBox quickly crash out to my desktop, only to leave me with no cursor. Task manager says nothing is open, still no cursor, like when in BigBox. I have to do a hard restart of the PC to get my cursor back. If I remember, this started about 2 betas ago.

I was able to track down an issue that would cause problems similar to what you were talking about. Fix has been put in place and will be corrected on next push.

I've now tested it with Beta 6 and the Origin version gets now properly launched when it's added as Additional App. So that issue seems to fixed!

BUT the following issue is still there:

When I edit the merged game (doesn't matter if I change something as long as I close it with the OK button) the game loses its Origin badge and the Origin version can't be launched anymore. Once the Origin version has lost its Origin badge it stays broken even when you expand the games into their individual entries.

What Big Box theme are you running?

I actually think there might be one more set of games. (Xbox Game Pass - P L E A S E make it happen Jason)

This is on our list. Not sure the timeframe for it though.

Thanks for catching this, Cid.

Thanks! This fixed it for me! :)

Unfortunately I found another issue while I was testing this. If you have a GOG and Origin version merged and the GOG version is set as parent than you can't start the Origin version. It won't even open up the Origin launcher. It works fine as a single entry though when you expand them again.

I know it doesnt fix the bug but you shouldnt have to do a full restart. if you have your windows search enabled, press the windows key and type "mouse" to get into your mouse settings, use your tab and arrow keys to change the size or cursor color temporarily, should bring the cursor back. I had this issue before and found this beats a full restart. Hope it can work for you.

Unified Refried

I switched over from Colorful to try to trouble shoot the BB-Pause bug I was having with the Colorful theme (as you asked me to do in a previous post). Then after successfully using the pause theme for a while, the quick crash to desktop happened - after using Unified Refried for a while. That reminded me, this quick crash to desktop has happen about 4 times the last week. That's when I reported it. I have never had it happen until about 3 betas ago.

Thanks for the tip!

Can you revert to the official release to see if you can reproduce it with 10.14? I'm doubtful that anything has been added recently that could cause any new crashes. I could always be wrong though.

It may end up being data-related (or driver-related for that matter), which is why I'm curious if it works correctly with 10.14.

Just go in your updates folder and run the installer last stable version you have in there.

I just used Steam import for the first time and did a manual audit when the numbers didn't tally. There are six games that didn't import (Drop, Escape from Tethys, Gravity Wars, Red Gate, Team Fortress 2, UNI - none of them currently installed). Perhaps it's an API issue that's not an easy fix (there's a few others who posted perhaps similar issues here and here), but is there a workaround for manually adding games using Application Path: steam://rungameid/[gameid] ?

I also noticed a mod (Killing Floor Mod: Defence Alliance 2) imported - I have base game but don't see separate entry for the mod. And I have two 'tools' for a football management game that I possibly installed years ago that were also picked up by the import.

Otherwise, great job on the imports. I used all the others without issue!
