  • RocketLauncher v1.1.0.0

    Release Highlights:

    1. RocketLauncher can now draw shaders above any emulator! Bezels will need to be enabled to use this feature. You can even make your own shaders, check the new Media\Shaders folder. We include a new default Scanlines-1080p by Sub-Zero.
    2. The internal code has stared to become more object-oriented. So expect some major changes to modules and libs as they become updated over time.
    3. Logging is getting more verbose. So if you haven't familiarized yourself with filtering logs in RLUI, make it a point to learn how to, to find where your issues are faster.
    4. Your front end can now be paused on launch and resumed on exit. Check out the new Suspend Frontend Global/system setting.

      I'm a little confused by "suspend frontend". Can you give an example when you would want to do that?

      If you want to suspend the frontend process whenever you enter a game, either to free some resources or to avoid frontend background sounds, focus stealing and so on, just enable this option and your frontend process will be suspended while you are playing the game jut like we already do for most of the emulators when you enter pause.

      Sounds great. Thanks.

      For example, Dime, I can run N64 at double resolution using just RA, but if I launch from a front end like HyperSpin or Launchbox, it'll perform badly, stutter, etc. I don't have the greatest computer mind you, but it will be interesting to see if the suspend feature will solve that for me.

      With the new PCLauncher module I get this error with all PC games Steam & non-steam.

      Window._New: improper construction of window object
      use this syntax: var:=new window(new windowtitle
      ("title ","class","exe","id","pid"))

      Switching back to the previous module and it all works again.

      EDIT: Also when it errored it didn't eventually close the black error screen and take me back to RLUI. The error screen stayed on-screen and I had to blind navigate with no mouse, shut it down, launch another game and shut that down to get my mouse back.

      Is that another option that changed or is there a setting for that?

      Please create a new thread and post a log. I tested a couple non-steam games and everything worked fine. Just state this has to do with the new update and it will be looked into. This thread is not for problems.
