New Feature: All import processes will now import the games first before downloading any media, allowing you to edit and play them right away

is it possible to just get an notification after the downloading the meta data / importing the games and go directly into downloading media? in the past it was one go through and after everything was finished / downloaded I have to press a button and accept it but now the system is waiting for my accept before it starts loading media files. something like a Notification Center which I do not have to accept but just see that Media Data was imported for x games or media files etc. so I will come back to my computer and everything is updated and the screen is refreshed.

With the download metadata and media tool, I'm getting a lot of 404 errors. It doesn't specifically say what I need to log in to. Could you guys clarify?

Steam, according to the first line in the error.

That makes sense, thanks for the response. Though I always have Steam running in the background, and it's still happening currently as I'm logged in. Maybe if it got interrupted at some point it starts throwing that error.

The error is because auth happens too early in the process now. Before it was fine because media downloaded right away. Now it could be 20minutes, an hour, or in my case a day later (because dialog box prompt on success import blocked process to actually download the media). I don't think it has anything to do with steam. It could happen to origin, uplay, and emumovies.

The issue is that it's queueing up downloads, then downloading them afterwards which by the time queueing is finished, the auth tokens expired.

This error can be automatically handled and it should re-do auth for the service, the polly .net library can make this easier to handle.

So the dialog box for importing needs to no longer block processes. Nothing should be waiting on me to click ok to a informational success dialog alert.

The auth error can be fixed short term by moving the auth code to be right before media downloads. Long term can be fixed by using error handling and some retry logic.

Hi,

Lately, I've been getting constant (every 10 minutes of active usage) crashes  (Launchbox shuts down back to desktop and I have to relaunch) while trying to edit metadata. Is it just me? How can I troubleshoot?

Are you getting an error or does it just close/crash? Turn on debugging logging, you should get debug log of what is going on and we can go from there. You're the first person to report anything like that with this beta release though (at least to my knowledge).

No error. Just stops being responsive for a quick moment then closes. I have debugging loggin on. Where do I find the log? Post them here?

Feel free to PM it to me. They are in your \\Launchbox\Logs\ folder

@C-Beats I dont' have the URLs because unfortunately all the messages says are 404 Error: Please sign in. I'll run it again with debug logs to see if I can get it to replicate.

No need. I have found what source is throwing the error and am testing code changes I hope will eliminate them. Thanks for the report.

Not sure if this was reported or not.  But, on the latest beta when you do a rom import and select folder, as you go through the wizard, you get presented with the arcade/mame portion of the wizard even for non-arcade platforms.  It shows for about 5 seconds, then automatically closed and proceeds to the last step of the wizard/import process.  In my case I was doing an import of Nintendo Entertainment System roms and I got the Arcade portion everytime I went through.

Also happens when using the select files option.

  • Fixed: Mouse navigation wasn't working in Big Box
  • Fixed: The download queue wasn't starting until after pressing "ok" when using the Download Metadata and Media tool

Launchbox was softlocked just now in Beta 5 as I had let a game import and then media had finished downloading before I had closed the initial 'games were imported successfully' dialog box. I was able to close the media downloaded box but now I cannot close the games were imported successfully dialog.

When selecting the option to "Force Using Mame Metadata" when importing something like Sammy Atomiswave you get stuck in the "Ready to Import" screen and cannot use the Back button. If you click the Back button it will quickly flash a Mame screen and just stay in the Ready to Import screen. You have to cancel out if you need to go back and make a change. I was testing these option due to an issue someone was having in another thread when I noticed this.

Also, same as was mentioned by the two prior users, when progressing through the process you get a quick flash of the Mame wizard screen with the check boxes to exclude all the junk and make the playlists. It is real quick that it flashes.
