After testing of all new games that was added in MAME v198, I've decided to add 'Strider 2', because this game is playable.

It affects compilations:
MAME Mini v198 & Arcade Classics for LB v198

Game files, snapshots, movie and description for this game was created. Another thing: 'support files' added (incl. the newest 'Series.ini' and 'Version.ini' by Antopisa). Arcade32/64 updated with NO-NAG edition. And a few of small changes.

Available all necessary files for:
MAME Mini, Launchbox Mode, BigBox Mode.

'3D NES' for Launchbox [update]

Original compilation made by Colpipes. Updated version by dax.

What was changed?
- games moved from Emulators to Games directory (incl. relinks)
- duplicated entries removed from Launchbox database
- damaged and duplicated game files removed
- oversized 3dn profiles replaced with those created by GEOD STUDIO
- addes screenshots for all games (title, gameplay)
- added movies for all games (NES related - no Themes)
- fixed mappings for XBOX pads (same as global controls for Libretro emulators)
- fixed mappings for keyboard (same as global controls for Libretro emulators)
- added new profiles for games from GEOD STUDIO:
https://www.youtube.com/user/tructre1980/videos
- added missed game files for new 3dn files
- tested every game (1 by 1) to confirm that is 100% working and correctly displayed

The compilation contains everything needed, except RocketLauncher settings which no need to update. It also incl. Registry settings for emulator with changed mappings for 2 players (keyboard and XBOX pads mappings) - available in emulators directory - or You may use my automation batch 'LBsetter'.

Every game has: title, screen, movie (LB & BB Mode).

"Kung Fu" does not work - I don't know why. Maybe it's related to emulation, maybe other things.

I suggest to delete original folders before copy - to prevent duplicated images/movies/games. You may also NOT to delete and have more duplicated files. You decide.

'SNK Neo Geo CD' for LaunchBox/BigBox
Image Image Image Image

The compilation has 99 of games in .chd format (fastest loading speeds) and is ready to run out of the box with the newest MAME. Every game has: title, screen, movie. Games preconfigured to be controlled with keyboard or X1/X360 pads, up to 2 players at once. By default I configured it to display with customized BGFX set (requires external graphic card). You may change it manually from BGFX to D3D or OpenGL with shaders through MAME (or within 'LBsetter' - my batch program).

The whole compilation is distributed as WinRAR SFX archive. It has NO virus, NO trojan, NO keylogger. If You don't trust me, check all files with Your favourite AV software. I suggest to NOT synchronize this compilation with LaunchBox database, because it's INCOMPATIBLE with its database (max.: 80%). I've renamed few of game titles to fulfil MAME/ARCADE standards.

P.S.1: 2 wheels missed. 'Double Dragon' is unplayable.
P.S.2.: Screenshot made with Retro Mode (BGFX filter customized).
P.S.3.: File "Launchbox\Data\Platforms.xml" contains extended descriptions for my 'Arcade Classics' and 'SNK Neo-GEO CD' compilations. If You use Colpipes "A.C." or "NGCD" compilations, DON'T USE "Platforms.xml" from my upload and delete the file from downloaded package.
P.S.4.: If I missed any NGCD game in the compilation, post it here!

'Nintendo Game & Watch' for Launchbox [update]

Image

Original compilation by Colpipes.
Updated version by myself.

What was changed?
- Renamed roms and entries in LB (I was angry during executing every game several times :P)
- Created screenshots for all games (missed boxes was not searched)
- Made it compatible with 'LBsetter' (my batch configurator for all Libretro (by anyone), Arcade Classics (by dax), SNK Neo-Geo CD (by dax).

Compilation is COMPATIBLE with LaunchBox database approx. 90%, except entries that does not exist in database and a few of incorrect screenshots (example game: 'Snoopy').

Before unpack I suggest to delete original folders from Your disk for consistency and to eliminate duplicated images.

Download:

Code: Select all

P.S. I can't start playing game 'Chicky Woggy (VTech, Arcade Time & Fun)' to make screenshot during game, that is why black LCD on screenshot.

freenit: are You sure? Asking because I have this game in compilation and screens, movie. Check Your .xml file first is this contains game entry, then verify is game file attached.

It could be a win10 direct X problem.
but that is just a guess.
