Shortcut to open BigBox to a specific platform/category/playlist?


Recommended Posts

I'm trying out using Steam as my shell, and opening Launchbox from there. It works great and having Steam in charge of all the controllers is a wonderful thing, but you can't use SteamLauncher if going that route (Steam > Launchbox > Steam) which means I can't configure controllers on a per-game basis.

I was thinking since each console basically has the same config, I could just add shortcuts to Steam for NES, SNES, Wii, etc, and have Big Box open directly to the given platform. Is there a shortcut I could create to do this? I'm imagining something like:

"C:\Launchbox\core\BigBox.exe -PLAYLISTNAME"

One solution I'm considering is just having multiple BigBox.exe and config files for every platform but it feels like that could get messy fast. Any ideas?
