(solved) Incomplete playlist views on startup


Recommended Posts

Hello to all,

LaunchBox does not update the playlist views after startup. Only the first two or three rows are displayed.
To make the view look complete, I always have to scroll up and down with the mouse.

I can reproduce this behavior also on a freshly installed LaunchBox setup.

But this only happens, when any side bar is enabled - like left "LaunchBox Side Bar" or the "Game Details" on the right side ...
When both side bars are disabled, then LaunchBox shows all game entries correctly ...

Please have also a look to the attached screenshots - maybe it makes for you easier to understand.

Is this a known issue? 

BTW: i use "Steam Banners" view

after startup - with game details.jpg

after startup - with side bar.jpg

after startup - without any side bar.jpg

when mouse scrolled - with game details.jpg

when mouse scrolled - with side bar.jpg

It is solved, no issues :-)

I know we have an issue with the grid sometimes doing this when all the games are missing an image but I've never seen it do it with images applied. We do plan on taking a look into this and getting it corrected. I can say if this is related to the known issue that if you scroll up or down then they all should appear again. Certainly not ideal I admit, but least can hopefully help you out while you wait for us to find the cause of this issue.

Sometimes (very rarely) the view is absolutely strange. When I hide the Windows Taskbar and restart LaunchBox, there is an empty line in the middle. See attached screenshot.

This time, scrolling up and down did not correct the appearance of the game list. I had to refresh with F5. Or just click to another category and then click/open the playlist back again ...

Yes, it's strange - but also funny to see! 😄 
Maybe it is fixed in future updates. It's not such dramatic for me - considering the many many other useful features which LaunchBox brings out of the box, this is something I can live with it 😉 ...

I have an idea - which could solve my problem: Scrolling up and down via AutoHotkey - after LaunchBox has started up ...
As we know LaunchBox already brings a onboard AutoHotkeys functionality/implementation.

My thinking is to run a AutoHotkey script after LaunchBox startup - which simulates mouse scroll wheel:

Send {WheelDown}
Sleep, 100
Send {WheelUp}
Sleep, 100

Does anybody know, if this is possible?

Forget what I asked in the previous post! Since today's LaunchBox update 12.2, there are no more graphical "strangenes"! 😄

The new grid layout is very solid. I also noticed that setting the aspect ration has now more effect on the spaces. I'm not sure, if you renewed this feature - but the views are nor much better looking now, as before:

You folks are really good on it - what you do there with LaunchBox! Thanks a lot! 👍

Now it's time to sit back and launch games in front of the TV via LaunchBox - Yeayyyy! 🎮🕹️😄 ...

PS: Upgrading my existing LaunchBox license to a never-expiring license was the best thing I did - it is worth for it!
