I was just bored and thought I'd give it a try. Seeing what people could do with LaunchBox, but I think its safe to say that this is out of the realm of what Jason wanted. The example in the screen shot below tells Launchbox that when the escape key is pressed the emulator process should be killed and the emulator closed. Im not saying that there couldn't be features like this in the future, way in the future, but I am certain he is more concerned about updating, maintaining and creating new features for games. Usually there is nothing to do here and Launchbox will auto populate the required tick boxes. Next browse to the vlc.
Remember that you do not need to make any changes to Big Box and any new emulators you add will be carried through. With many emulators adding the fullscreen command will force the emulator to start in full screen which is usually what you want to see. Now click on the Add button at the bottom left of the window to add emulator to Launchbox. If it is not then enter a suitable name for your new emulator. This includes all of the configuration that they use. Not that we shouldn't compete with them, but there is really no point when they're this extremely well established with skins, addons and the like, on several platforms. Just drop the picture or pictures you would like into this folder.
We will look at both how to add emulators to Launchbox and also some of the additional configuration settings that you can use. Simply place a tick in the box next to each system you would like to associate. Click on the Add button found at the bottom left of this window. A good example here is full screen mode. If you want to use these you should check the documentation for your emulator to find out what these are. In this post we will show you how to fully setup an emulator in Launchbox including a full video tutorial. I lack the talent to programme Launchbox to retrieve this information from a database online.
Please feel free to contribute to this. It's still my main front-end but Launchbox is like a new sweet relaxing breath of air, almost jump right in from nothing. Here you can configure hotkeys to be available when this emulator is running. The setup process is simple and each emulator should take you around 5 minutes to complete. I would recommend a picture that matches your screen resolution so it looks nice and clean.
The available tick boxes are rather self explanatory. Thanks again and glad you enjoyed the concept. Before you proceed expand this menu and check to see if your chosen emulator is available. I love seeing what other people want to do with their programs and it does excite me when others take the normal functions of the program, and uses them for unintended purposes. Launchbox is innovative, easy to use and with recent releases is becoming more customisable. Please feel free to contribute to this.
Simply add emulator to Launchbox and any parameters, associate the emulator with the computer, console or arcade and set any hotkeys. Notice that there is a drop down menu here. The uninstaller merely removes the files in the installation folder and the desktop and Start menu icons. Read through these and check to see if any of them are a requirement of your emulator. Now if some of the art work seems not to be showing, first make sure you have the proper naming for the Front. There will be an alpha-numeric coding after the name, just ignore that. It details all of the emulators that you have setup on this Launchbox installation.
It must be named that exactly or it will not work. Dropbox, Google Drive, OneDrive, and other syncing services folders should work perfectly fine as well. Also you will have to load box art and fan art manually. This post was created using Launchbox version 7. . Once you have downloaded and installed the software package there are a number of steps you need to take before you can be up and running playing your games.

Usually Launchbox will automatically select this for you but there may be times where you want to associate an emulator with multiple systems or disassociate it. It includes both the application paths and any commands that are used when they are executed. The installer will extract the files to a location of your choosing and optionally create desktop and Start menu icons.
