faeran Posted February 6 Share Posted February 6 Hi everyone, LaunchBox 13.2 beta 1 is out now with the following changes: New Feature: RetroAchievements now supports On-the-fly filters, auto-populate playlists, and badges (scanning and hashing your games is mandatory for this functionality to work) New Feature: RetroAchievements scanning option has been added to the Tools menu, and the RetroAchievements integrations section under the LaunchBox options New Feature: Icons in the side bar are now supported (#3 in the 2022 Community Poll). Over 240 brand new, default icons have been commissioned and are instantly usable on the side bar in the default theme (An option to toggle the icons is available under View > Show / Hide > Side Bar Icons). Premium users can customize these icons to their liking by adding their own images to the folder: LaunchBox\Images\Platform Icons Improvement: The hash value of your ROM is now used to determine whether a game supports RetroAchievements functionality Improvement: Box - Spine image type is now available in the Audit window Fixed: Box - Flip functionality when 3D Models are turned off in Big Box Fixed: Rare occurrences where Steam games were mixing achievements from multiple games Fixed: Big Box clock not updating its value in some views for some users Fixed: Multiple instances of MAME opening when caused by the emulator's default running script. Beta 2: Improvement: Origin import has been replaced with an EA import and now works with the new EA App Fixed: RetroAchievement game matching caused by hash casing Fixed: In the Add/Edit Playlist window, pressing the Games tab, in certain situations, would take a considerable time to load the games in an auto-populate playlist Fixed: Some Platform Icons with special symbols were not being named properly by the startup script Fixed: Platform Icons should now scale more elegantly for users with custom DPI settings Beta 3: New Feature: Steam and GOG achievements now support on-the-fly filters, auto-populate playlists, and badges (scanning your games is mandatory for this functionality to work) Improvement: Achievement scanning will now scan for Steam and GOG achievement information Improvement: Steam's last played date and achievement availability info now updates on LaunchBox startup Improvement: LaunchBox now downloads your play time and last played date information for GOG games Improvement: Icon scaling as been tweaked to help with certain scaling percentages and custom themes Fixed: Custom named platforms would not get placed in Platform Categories if missing a Scrape As value Beta 4: Improvement: GOG's play time, last played, and badge information are now updated during startup Fixed: A game containing multiple executables should now import properly using the EA import Fixed: Potential LaunchBox image grid loading issues in certain rare situations Beta 5: Fixed: Rare error when right clicking a GOG imported game Fixed: Image Grid freezing (introduced in beta 4) Translations added If you are testing, there's a few things to note about the above. RetroAchievements work the same as they did the past. You select a game and it displays your RetroAchievement information. However, it now scans your game file, instead of trying to match your game title, to determine whether it's compatible for earning achievements. The new RetroAchievement features, including badges, on-the-fly filters, and auto-populate playlists will require a one-time scan of your library to work. This scan does take a while to complete for your entire library. The platforms you have, the format they are in, and whether they are compressed or not, can greatly affect the time it takes for the scan to complete (for example, it will take much longer if your files are 7zipped). The platform icon feature will work for the Default theme. Custom themes will require an update by the author, and users will need to download new versions of the theme. For theme devs, here's a post with instructions on how to update your theme to support them: 9 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
