Hey all, the first 11.12 beta is out now with the following:

  • Fixed: Potential error in Big Box when switching view types and then navigating too quickly

  • Fixed: For theme developers, the FlowControl SelectedScale property was not working with CoverFactory

  • Fixed: On rare occasions, Epic image downloads were not saving correctly due to inconsistences with game images on Epic's servers

  • Fixed: Errors for some users with the Edit DOSBox Configuration window (introduced in 11.11)

We are currently working on the last item from the poll as well: Icons for Types of Controls (Keyboard/Mouse, PS4/Xbox Controller, Wiimote, Nunchuk, etc.). We still have some work to do on that, but I wanted to get a beta out because of the above fixes.

I don't think it is the last thing from the poll. Maybe I misunderstood. 

It's the last item in the top 20, which are the ones that won the top half of the votes. We never intended to tackle all of the items.

Some things should be tackled sooner or later, anyway. These issues will be coming back over and over again. 

Bulk Edit Additional Apps
Allow Launch With for Additional Apps/Versions
Previous and Next Buttons in LaunchBox Edit Window
New Document Fields for Hintbooks, Cheats, and Maps
Display Platform/Playlist/Category Information in the LaunchBox Game Details Sidebar when No Game is Selected
Proper Support for Year-Only Release Dates

All good items to eventually get added and that's one of the great things about Jason doing polls. Items get added and users get to vote on items to prioritize over others. Unfortunately none of these garnered enough user votes last time. Maybe next poll as there are a couple items on that list I would not mind seeing.

Not sure if this system is always good enough, though. Because some pretty important issues can be left out. 

For instance:

New Document Fields for Hintbooks, Cheats, and Maps
 
This had 417 votes. It is just a little less than the issues already tackled. The difference is not big. Yet you decide to ignore it. OK.

Good enough or not it is nice a developer even does it. What is important to one is not always important to another. Personally everything on the list you quoted I can go a lifetime without ever caring about if it gets added. Though there are a couple I think are good additions. So it is nice to see our dev team at least allowing users to vote on items. Or we can just leave it to our dev team of 2 to decide what they want to do. Like many software developers do.

RIght. As much as I didn't care about the stuff that was recently added. But it seems now that hundred of votes are ignored. The differences are not big. Voters should be treated equally. Each vote should have the same importance. 

Truly, I just do not understand your thinking. 

Steam Achievements in Details like Retro Achievements  had 24.85%. And you decide to implement it. 
New Document Fields for Hintbooks, Cheats, and Maps had 24.56%. And you decide to ignore it. 
 
Can you please explain me what is the logic behind it?
 
Why 24.56% of voters get ignored? And other 24.85% of voters get what they voted for?
 
Do I miss something?

when adding types of controls please dont forget about the arcades ie trackball , spinner ,wheel 

New Document Fields for Hintbooks, Cheats, and Maps sounds great 

the ability to add to second screen as a alternative to marquee would be even better.

Better still would be the ability to allow theme creators to create zones  for multiple Document Fields on one screen

This thread is is not a feature request thread. While I appreciate your desire to make known what features you feel are missing from LaunchBox or Big Box, this is not the place to do that. This thread is for those who are on the beta to confirm that the above fixes HAVE indeed been fixed for them, and to report any issues they have found with this beta release. Please take requests to our BitBucket where you can vote and comment on feature requests in a way FAR more visible to us then any comments made here.

Probably because of ease of implementation since the achievement and Steam stuff was already there.

You don't need to understand any of the moderators thinking at all. There is only one persons thinking you need to concern yourself with at all and that is Jasons. He is the one who does the work and makes the decisions, not us.

It's not ignored, it's just prioritized which has to be done or it all becomes a total mess.

OK, then. Let's wait for @Jason Carr explanation. There is 24% vs 24% of voters. Makes no sense to me at all.

Since the last update, big box just doesn't load for me anymore, its just go black and never loads.

I have been having a directory problem since 11.2, even though my file paths have been the same since 2016.

It seems this program just gets worse and now is unusable with no help on the forms. Which sucks I was an early supporter of Lunchbox and got a lot of people to subscribe.

whenever I open BigBox with the Default theme or any other theme no keyboard/controller keys work and if they do work it just crashes shortly after.

Also, trying to install the latest beta I keep getting this message, so I cancelled the installation and I can't open LaunchBox anymore.

I know this isn't really a beta issue, and I may be wrong, but seems to me that there use to be regular polls to vote on upcoming features. I haven't seen one or got an email about one for a very long time. If BitBucket is the primary way it is working now, maybe ETA or someone could make a video to show folks how to use BitBucket for voting. I didn't even know there was a voting feature in BitBucket until reading these posts.

BTW: BitBucket could use a good cleaning. I have issues created 3-4 years ago that need to simply be deleted, I couldn't find a place to delete as a user. Not sure if that's possible

Look at the 1st post in this thread. Jason literally pointed out that he's working on the LAST of the features in the Top 20 of the last poll. So if you're wondering why there hasn't been a new poll yet, it's because the last poll isn't finished with yet. READ people.

Any more Non-Beta related posts in beta testing threads will get deleted.

These threads are solely for testing data related to beta releases so our two devs can have feedback to move forward.  

if it is not beta related start an appropriate thread in the appropriate sub-forum.
