11.8 Beta Testing


Recommended Posts

Hey @Jason Carr, I noticed LaunchBox Steam Importer does not detect Profile Features Limited games. This isn't your fault as Valve implemented such limitation to combat fake games in the past.

The good news now is that recently Valve updated their endpoint API to also include these games, given a proper parameter is set.

Set "skip_unvetted_apps" to "0". When this parameter is set to 0, it will return all games owned by user, including  Profile Features Limited games. When omitted, this parameter is defaulted to 1.

I've not heard anyone have this issue before, could you give me an example of a game you are seeing this with?

This was added only in the recent years to combat fake games so that "developers" don't sell empty games and profit from Steam Trading Cards, Emotes or Steam Achievement icons.

All games usually release in this status ("Steam is learning about this game"), then either becomes "Profile Features Limited (not enough sales and community activity)", or a regular game where it now counts towards the number that displays how many games you own, and feature their Steam Achievements on Steam Profile Achievement Showcases.

Thank you for that. I had not heard of that until you mentioned it. I have made the changes and it looks like it works without any unforeseen side effects. Should be in the next beta release, I'll make sure to ping ya when it releases so you can't try it out for us.

Is anything being done about the performance of BigBox?  It seems that since the switch to .NET core, performance has completely tanked.  It now feels like a stuttery, laggy mess rather than the slick, smooth, frontend experience that I saw when I bought LaunchBox back in version 9.X.  I've been playing around with a clean install and I've noticed that some themes like City Hunter 2 feel like they're running on a low-end GPU when they're actually on a high-end GPU.  The built-in themes run much better but loading videos is still stuttery compared to old versions of BigBox.

I've seen nothing but massive improvements.

Make sure you're using the correct video card if you have a laptop with multiple GPUs (Intel vs. nVidia, for example). That would cause performance like you're describing. There was no performance degradation whatsoever when we switched to .NET Core, so something isn't working correctly.

It looks like I was running BB at 2160 without realizing.  I normally run it at 1080.  Some themes do appear to be quite slow still but others are fine so it's not a BB issue.

Hey Jason,

Any plans to update ScummVM to the most updated version for inclusion in Launchbox soon?

I'll note this and hopefully we can update it soon.
