This was strange... I was using LaunchBox 12.3 on my Win10 machine .. working fine ... it did the auto-update to 12.4 and then my xbox-like controller started acting weird as if I was holding stick in a stuck direction (but it wasnt), screen UI jumped around and now the User Interface of Launchbox is shaded (see pic), no menus, long side buttons .. I can not click on anything but I can kind of scroll the game titles with the controller but cant click on or activate anything .... I rolled back to 12.3 .. same thing .. rolled back to 12.1 .... samed thing ... As if the UI display settings are being saved and not wiped so the screen is still shaded and unusable ... BigBox works fine, but I can not get past this issue with LaunchBox ... PLEASE HELP!

Your Settings.xml is corrupt.

Go into your \Backups folder and open one of the latest backup zips. Inside there get the Setting.xml file and copy into your \Data folder overriding the corrupt one.

I'm new so of course I can't find where the 'backup zips' are held .. Can you tell me where the folder is?? .. Thanks.

In the /Backups folder (within LaunchBox folder) there are only .xml files for every game .. I do NOT see any zip files .... 

Do you have Backups turned on in your LB settings?

You can always just delete the Setting.xml file from the \Data folder. It will reset some of your settings to default. So you may have to redo a few things. It does not affect games and emulators. Mainly the LB appearance.

I'm guessing I do not have backups turned on in LB, so I will check that .... I did find older  settings.xml backups from 2019 and I used one of them and it seemed to work because I can see the full window and manipulate all menus
