why does this happen?

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I do have a problem when starting games (Snes games with Snes 9x) in launchbox/Bigbox.  When a game starts, the emulator starts in it's own window, and launchbox/Bigbox is going black.

The picture is taken after I click on the black screen. First screen popping up is "Game Over" and then the screen in the picture. I have moved the emulator screen on top of BigBox.

The only thing I have done in the emulator config is setting up the controller (a wireless Xbox One S).

If more info is needed, please let me know.

Thanx
Johnny

It looks to me like the emulator just didnt go fullscreen. LaunchBox only launches the emulator, doesnt make it fullscreen. Just do a search on the forums for the correct command line argument for that emulator to make it go fullscreen. There a whole list somewhere on here. Some emus also have an option to make it fullscreen on launch. Never really played around with Snes9x stand alone since I use RetroArch for SNES.

Thanx for the reply. I have set the Snes9x to go full screen, but it still start outside of Launcbox/Bigbox.  I will try RetroArch.

Thanx

Johnny

For Snespx add the text below to the Default Command Line Parameters for the emulator in LaunchBox.

-fullscreen

Thanx for the help guys. Problem solved. I do have two monitors, so it was my settings that made problem. I just have to change it in BigBox.

Even so, it is a bit strange. I have had BigBox on the same setup earlier with no need to change any settings.

Anyway, thanx again for the help.
