11.18 Beta Testing

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. The 11.18 Beta 1 is now out with the following changes:

  • New Feature: Filtering games in LaunchBox is now much more flexible; you can filter to pretty much anything on the fly with the new filter button in the left-hand sidebar, next to the search box
  • New Feature: Anything you filter on the fly with the above new feature can be easily saved to a dynamic playlist
  • Improvement: Performance while selecting games in LaunchBox is now faster due to improvements in populating the game details sidebar
  • Fixed: Login screen would immediately close when checking "Force New Login" in the XBOX import wizard if you had previously logged in
  • Fixed: The ROM import wizard wasn't always importing all games when using MAME metadata (the full-set importer was unaffected)
  • Fixed: The keyboard focus border wasn't being drawn correctly in LaunchBox's Grid View with the default theme (recently introduced)
  • Fixed: Big Box CoverFlow views can once again use "Box" as image type in addition to "Boxes" (recently introduced theme compatibility issue that was affecting some older themes)

 

Thanks for the help with beta testing LaunchBox.

Wow! But it's a shame that the new filtering feature doesn't work with other LB themes. I tried this latest beta with the default theme and it works great, but it's not available in the LBPlex theme, which is the one I almost always use

Yeah, unfortunately the theme developers who made Launchbox themes will need to update the theme to include the new button.

Drop this in the LBPlex theme's \Views folder. It has the button added.

Only applies to newer LB Themes the Old theme does not have that new feature

We will get it added to Old Default as well, though any custom theme's you (or the theme dev) will have to add the button yourself.

the new filter button

This is a SWEET feature!!  Love it!

And since we're only in Beta...

Getting an error that forces LaunchBox to close (after clicking Close on the error message box).  After selecting a Platform (say Atari 2600) and clicking the Filter icon (without selecting anything) then click on a different Platform (NES [arbitrary selection]), Filter icon (again, no selection), select Arcade, filter icon... so far so good...  Select All Platforms, Filter icon (still not selecting a specific filter) then select Arcade (again) and click the Filter icon, an error message pops up.

   6:12:31 AM Exception

There may have been a few more Platform/Filter clicks in there, but the error would appear with the Arcade Platform (and then clicking the Filter icon).  Again, it did not do it every time when selecting Arcade, then clicking Filter.  But always the 'last time'. ;)  It also seemed to happen after going from All to Arcade. (possibly coincidence)

Tested using the Default theme and on 2 different PC's (2 separate LB installs).

Are you seeing it often or it a hit/miss sorta thing?

I'm seeing it happen more hit than miss but have narrowed it down to only 2 Platforms that it happens on.  Arcade and Sega Model 3.  It seemed (for a minute) that if I clicked on Sega Model 3 and then selected a game, let it populate the right sidebar, then click the Filter icon, it would work (not error). But that's probably all phycological as that 'technique' didn't consistently continue to work.  But it did a couple times.  

So it is hit or miss, but only on the 2 Platforms.  But seems I can 'easily' [often] make it hit again.

Is this universally applicable? I tried doing so with Rincewind but it messes up the theme.

If you click the filter button before searching for anything you get an error.

Straight from loading LB i mean, if you've previously searched for something it doesn't happen.
