    I was curious if anyone knows how the LaunchBox plug-in works as it relates to pause media. For some platforms, it seems to be going to my Launchbox folder for pause artwork. For others, it does not, and I can not figure out why.

    Thanks!

    The entire plugin code is on RL\plugins\launchbox.plugin
    You can go there to check what is exactly done.

    Basically the plugin looks for logos and backgrounds on your launchbox frontend folders.

    For example, for logos the plugins looks for png, bmp, gif, jpg and tif files at:

    For games logos
    Code:
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\gameName.*
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\gameName-01.*
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\gameName-02.*
    ...
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\parentGameName.*
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\parentGameName-01.*
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\parentGameName-02.*
    ...
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\romName.*
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\romName-01.*
    frontendPath . "\Images\systemName\Clear Logo\romName-02.*
    For system logos
    Code:
    frontendPath\Images\Platforms\systemName\Clear Logo\systemName.*
    frontendPath\Images\Platforms\systemName\Clear Logo\systemName-01.*
    frontendPath\Images\Platforms\systemName\Clear Logo\systemName-02.*
    ...
    Similar searches are done for other art assets. For backgrounds, it looks at the "frontendPath\Images\systemName\Fanart - Background\Background\systemName.*" path for game assets and "frontendPath\Images\systemName\Fanart - Background\gameName.*"

    If it works for some systems and for others not, you need to check if the system names matches between RL and Launchbox, and also if the media is organized in a similar structure as the one described above.

    Thanks for explanation! One thing I realized after experimenting is that the artwork will show up if the game is launched through Launchbox (using Rocketlauncher) but not if directly launched from Rocketlauncher.

    That is because when you launch a game from RLUI, RL assumes that RLUI is your frontend and not launchbox.
