LaunchBox

What's New:

- The AetherSX2 emulator for Sony Playstation 2 is now fully supported and will launch games! However, you will need to open up the emulator first and let it scan your PS2 ROMs folder in order for it to have access to your ROMs.
- Both PPSSPP and PPSSPP Gold for Sony PSP are now fully supported and will launch games on Android 11+! However, you will need to open up the emulators first and let them scan your PSP ROMs folder with the Browse button for them to have access to your ROMs (on Android 11+).
- Yaba Sanshiro 2 and Yaba Sanshiro 2 Pro have been added, but they do not work to launch games on Android 11+. As far as we can tell, this is because the developer has not yet added support for launching games with the new Android storage access framework. Please hit us up on the LaunchBox forums if you know otherwise or have any further information.
- Dolphin MMJR is now the default emulator for Nintendo GameCube and Nintendo Wii, because it is so much better with performance
- Support for Dolphin MMJR2 has been added as well, but it is not recommended for most users because it has been abandoned in favor of Dolphin MMJR
- Added a new option to the MAME imports to skip games that require a CHD file; this is ideal for mobile devices because the CHD files increase the ROM set space requirements from 66 gigs to roughly 500 gigs, and only around 120 games actually require a CHD, so it's usually better to omit the CHDs for mobile devices that run MAME
- Games are now sorted more similarly to how they are in the desktop apps, ignoring articles like "The", "A", and "An"
- M3U playlists are now used for games with multiple discs (to allow for easy disc switching) when launching RetroArch with the following cores: duckstation, swanstation, mednafen_psx_hw, mednafen_psx
- Added a new option to "Quit RetroArch on Losing Focus" to the platform emulator settings; this option will help to ensure that new games will be launched properly even if a previous game is still running in RetroArch. However, it will also prevent games from resuming when the screen is turned off, if this setting is turned on.
- Fixed errors importing Capcom Play System, Capcom Play System II, and Capcom Play System III
- Fixed a crash when trying to download missing media with no connection
