LaunchBox ist ein Frontend für verschiedene Emulatoren (u.a. DosBox) sowie PC Spiele im Allgemeinen.

LaunchBox is a graphical frontend for various emulators such as DosBox and also for PC games in general.

Version 8.2 - Released April 11, 2018
  • New Feature: LaunchBox.Next is now available; it's a complete overhaul for the main LaunchBox interface. It's largely still in development, but you can try it out by clicking the LaunchBox.Next button in the header or running the new LaunchBox.Next.exe file from the LaunchBox folder.
  • New Feature: Five new options have been added to the View menu in LaunchBox to hide games missing videos, front box art, screenshots, clear logos, and/or background images. These options will trigger a process to populate a missing media cache that will allow quick navigation. There's also an option underneath these five items to "Refresh All Missing Media" in case you've manually added or removed images directly from the file system.
  • New Feature: Images can now be deleted directly from the game details sidebar in LaunchBox via a new right-click menu
  • New Feature: The list view in LaunchBox now allows you to hide and show columns by right-clicking on the column headers, and will save your preferences as well as the column order
  • Improvement: The included CriticalZone theme for Big Box has been updated to version 2; huge thanks to CriticalCid for his continued work on the theme! To use it, select the new "CriticalZoneV2 - Default" theme under Options > Views in Big Box. More versions of the theme are also available on the LaunchBox forums.
  • Improvement: A new "Wheel Easing" option has been added to Big Box that makes wheels and CoverFlow appear smoother by easing animations in and out. It's on by default but can be disabled under Options > Views.
  • Improvement: A new "Show Platform Banner Images" option was added to Big Box to allow you to hide the platform banner images if you don't want them obstructing the view of the background; the setting is available under Options > Images.
  • Improvement: A new "Allow Computer to Sleep while not in Attract Mode" option has been added to the Big Box General options for users who want Big Box to allow their computers to sleep
  • Improvement: Scanning for added ROMs performance has been drastically improved
  • Improvement: The default platforms and settings for the Retroarch emulator have been updated with more platforms and more modern core choices
  • Improvement: RetroHumanoid's amazing theme videos have been added as an option to the Platform/Playlist theme video downloads
  • Improvement: A new "RotationAmount" property has been added to the Big Box FlowControl (for theme developers styling the wheels). This allows theme developers to create a more cohesive-feeling wheel with items that rotate as the wheel turns.
  • Fixed: Sorting by title in the LaunchBox list view now correctly sorts by Sort Title
  • Fixed: When using the search box in LaunchBox, the scroll position was not reset which was sometimes confusing because it appeared that not all results were shown
  • Fixed: The images portion of the Edit Game dialog had some minor positioning issues on higher DPIs
  • Fixed: Steam killed off our API key once again, again breaking the Steam import wizard. We've changed it to ask the user to get their own API key from Steam in order to resolve the issue.
