That sounds like the Retroarch message, not Launchbox. So you need to check your Retroarch details, the API and such in Launchbox is only for the Launchbox UI, the actual emulator still needs to be logged in as well.

Ok, I've had difficulties with retroarch since I started using my new PC I built, I haven't been able to access retroarch with hotkeys, only from launchbox by right clicking a compatible game, I'll keep trying that route

Had a similar problem a couple of times after updating to the latest Retroarch. Have you tried to empty the cheevos_token code inside the " " in retroarch.cfg?

During my troubleshooting I did something in retroarch that causes my games to not be fullscreen when I first load them from menu, I can still left click window and "toggle exclusive full screen" but I'd like to not do that every time, can someone please let me know what to do? Sorry for the question in a question

Nevermind, I toggled fullscreen mode in retroarch and fixed it, thanks y'all, everything is working
