Just upgraded my computer and trying out BigBox, I copied my LEDBlinky folder over to my new desktop but i keep getting files does not exist errors? I need to download the latest version anyway, but don't want to reconfigure everything, what all files would i need to copy over?

Also using rocket launcher as the only emulator in Big Box should i setup support in both Big Box and Rocket Launcher?? or just one or the other??

Don't use BigBox, so I'm not sure what specifically would cause the problem, but I'd recommend doing the following:

1. Backup your LEDBlinky folder in case something goes wrong
2. Download the latest LEDBlinky Update file and extract the content into your current directory
3. Test

It shouldn't overwrite any settings files, but should fill in any gaps you're missing.

I have a zero delay encoder board labeled as cy-822b.  Is there anyway I can make this work with LEDBlinky or similar program?  Trying to set up the program, but it says "No LED controllers detected" I am also using hyperspin.

LEDBlinky only supports LED controller hardware from Ultimarc, GGG, and Wolfware Technologies.

Actually, the full LEDBlinky install would overwrite the configuration files.

Copying your original \LEDBlinky folder should work fine, so I'm not sure what file(s) could be missing. Are you sure it's LEDBlinky giving you that error message?

That would seem to imply that something's not right with your BB or RL configs.

The .exe is starting fine, just not doing anything, i need to reset all my paths for BB, and new rocket launcher install.  I tried the animation editor and it said the input map file was missing but its there, probably will be fixed after I reset all my paths in the Config, but wanted to update for the BigBox support, so if i reinstall or new install what all files should i copy over from my old folder?

settings.ini
LEDBlinkyAnimationEditor.ini
LEDBlinkyInputMap.xml
LEDBlinkyControls.xml
*.lay

Some of the files may have hard-coded paths that also need to be updated.

Unless you're using custom hardware with LEDBlinky Outputs, you can ignore the first error. The second error (from the Animation Editor) is coming from your layout file; <your file name>.lay. Edit the .lay file and make sure the path to the LEDBlinkyInputMap.xml is correct.

No way for me to know without seeing your debug log. Try using the Troubleshooting app. If that doesn't help, email me the debug.ZIP file.

Hi Arzoo,

Just bought a license of Ledblinky, great app!

Could you help me with something? It seem's I made a mistake somewhere because when I start a mame game (using Lauchbox), my P2 button 6 is always turned on with the yellow color. All the other buttons are right. Do you know where I should check first please?

Thanks!

Give the LEDBlinky Troubleshooting app a try and if that doesn't help, email me the debug.ZIP file and I'll take a look.
