Odd behaviour in latest version

Recommended Posts

Ever since the introduction of the screenshot grabber. I've been having a strange issue with certain cores in retroarch. Mainly cores for computers with keyboards. Also requests to save Phantom screenshots after exiting. Its as if my joypad movements are sending keyboard commands to retroarch. It renders the spectrum fuse core unusable. Its definitely a launchbox issue as it all works fine in an earlier version (which i have setup separately & not updated). Also works fine when running retroarch alone. I've changed nothing in settings. I don't have my pad set to do anything like this in launchbox settings either. Strange

There is a fairly large disclaimer about screenshotting retroarch to be fair.

Thats just it, Im not taking any screenshots. Its just saying i have after i exit. Also i haven't set a screen capture key or changed the default f8 screenshot key in retroarch. Like i said, Ive changed absolutely nothing since  launchbox 11 beta 1. But now im getting these save screenshot requests & any joypad press whilst  using the fuse core will spaz it out. Its like background keyboard automations off the joypad are being sent to retroarch or something

How are you controlling fuse? Cause i just tested it here with the core set to Kempston input using my controller and i had no weird issues at all, game controlled fine, and no prompts to save screenshots when i exited.

i also have it set to use kempston. I just made 2 videos. One using latest launchbox & one using 11 beta 1. Oddly though this time it didnt give me a screenshot save request. But it did still mess up. In the video i am pressing random buttons on the pad.

If you are using RetroAchievements on RetroArch, it takes screenshots during achievements. Launchbox catches those too.

Not sure what to tell ya, working just fine for me. Are you using any third party mapping software, or have steam open and using its desktop configuration?

 

 

Nope. Nothing extra. Steam is always open on my system as i have it load at startup. But thats not it as the older launchbox works fine. I was going to test up to which version it stopped working but unfortunately i deleted my update folder contents just recently!. Somewhere between 11 beta 1 & 11 official is the problem

I'm confused here; what is the exact issue you're running into with the cores in Retroarch (other than the phantom screenshots)?

Per the phantom screenshots, have you looked to see what the images actually are? Are they proper screenshots of the game?

What are the screenshots of? Are they of the game you were playing?

It's fine now, Sorted. Turns out it was a wayward custom config i was using for the fuse core causing my controller issues. As for the phantom screenshots, i will investigate later as to what the shots actually are.

Yeah, shots of the game. Once I got one of the startup theme 'Now Loading' screen, before the game had even loaded. Hope this helps.... :)

What emulator(s) is it happening with? Have you checked to see what keys or controller buttons are bound to the new screen capture features?

I have lots of emulators and I'm sorry I can't for the life of me remember what I was playing that day? It's only happened a couple of times, it's not everytime I exit, just thought I'd mention it. I set F11 to capture screens.

Ok so i checked my retroarch screenshot folder & there were 10 screenshots. These are shots i'd taken previously. None of the game in question. On the occasions where i've been asked to save the shots though, it asked me to save 10 screenshots.

For anyone having issues with the screenshot capturing in LaunchBox 11, please update to 11.1-beta-1 and give it a test for us. We're hoping it resolves any issues.
