    Gamebrowser Stream Games

    Just an Idea. Does someone think it woulb be possible to install the emulators on the host so that the clients can stream the games? Maybe install a headless virtualbox with all the emulators and emby uses software like remote desktop to stream the video signal and the input of the users. Is there technology to realise this or is it not a good idea?

    Gamebrowser Guide

    Gamebrowser The Gamebrowser plugin brings game support to your living room, GameBrowser fetches game art and metadata automatically, and launches games using supported Emby clients. Get started with the correct folder structure The first thing you will want to do is make sure your games have the ideal folder structure, Start with a ROOT Games folder, then each game console should be in its own folder, with each game in their own subfolders. Games > ATARI > Asteroids > Asteroids.a26 > Pitfall > Pitfall.a26 > SNES > Donkey Kong Country >
  3. Hi folks, and hi Chief, I have spent almost a week setting up a second server for the purpose of checking if I can use the new server with Emby Classic as the Emby team say we should. So, I went through planned server upgrade, they are correct as it worked. However... gamebrowser plugging on the server got upgraded every time the server upgraded, and now it is not working. I checked the forum, and someone reported the same problem when we moved from server 3.x to server 4.x. so it is a problem.. So now, the Emby team should either allow us to use the old plugging on the n

    Can't get games working

    Well, I have followed every possible guide about gaming for emby, but I cant make it work, I don't know if Im doing something wrong. I have created a media library in my hard drive (E:\Emby games) I created a organized folder (E:\Emby games\Windows\Game name\Game iso file) I downloaded GameBrowser plugin from the plugin catalog I have setup a Game Sytem (E:\Emby games) I scanned the folder yet nothing changes I updated metadata of the folder yet nothing changes All of that but when I enter in the game folder it is completly empty, I enter Windows and nothing sho

    Games administration

    Hello Everybody, I'm new to this forum so excuse me if I'm in the wrong sub thread. I recently installed a emby Plugin on FreeNAS 11.2 (Version to administer my whole media collection which consist of Movies, TV shows, music and games. In an article I found on the web (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/16380-gamebrowser-guide/) I found out that you can even administer Windows games. This brings me to my question(s): 1. Can you administer Windows games on FreeNAS ? The Gamebrowser Plugin (as wirtten in the mentioned article above) just says that Windows Ga

    Gamebrowser and Cinema Mode

    Okay so here we go. ive been trying to set up the game browser and cinema mode. i cant get either of them to work. so we shall start with the games. im only trying to set up and run the snes9x emulator and a few mario games. no matter how i structure my folders or point emby in the direction of the emulator no games or systems ever load and believe me ive gone and re read and repeated the instructions found in the setup guide as well as the three or four tops posts on google regarding this. as for the cinema mode it literally never plays any trailers before my movies. i can navigate to the
  7. I have Emby Server and Emby for WMC on the same machine as all of my media. My GameBrowser.xml file was up to date with all of my emulators and local PC games and was working perfectly. Since the upgrade to Emby Server, not a single game will launch, only showing a message that says "An unknown error prevented this game from launching." The indexing used to only use the folder name for the title, but now it ignores the nice folder name and only associates the messy file name inside each folder, even on a PC game where the only file is game.gbwin making my whole PC game library
  8. I know this is a recurring topic on this forum, but I've been at this for days, been through all of the forum topics here as well as Googled everywhere else and still just not able to get the Gamebrowser plugin to function correctly. My main storage drive on my server is J:\ and my games are located in J:\Games. My Emulators are installed on my client PC on D:\ Emulators. I have rescanned my libraries as well as changed the xml between <gamesystem> and </game system> to read the full path (instead of SegaGenesis, it's Sega Genesis) and still no resolve. It's still not get the 'P
  9. It looks as if TheGamesDB has changed their URL structure, which means Gamebrowser can no longer pull data from the site. Here is an example: Old structure: https://thegamesdb.net/game/113 New structure: https://thegamesdb.net/game.php?id=113 Here is how I discovered it. 1) I tried to click on the GamesDB link: 2) I received this error: 3) Verified that no artwork was importing from TheGamesDB: 4) I then checked the link for the game at TheGamesDB and noticed the URL had now changed to https://thegamesdb.net/game.php?id=113 Hopefully this will
  10. Thank you in advance to anyone able to help! So I have had games working for at least 6 - 12 months, I went to look at external player settings so that I could duplicate it on my laptop. When I go to view the "working" external plugin, it doesn't show any game system as an option. Once I exit the external player menu and go back to games library, the Game no longer has a Play Button (has had play button for nearly a year). I check all XML info and the games match the system info. Here is are screenshots of everything I would imagine you would ask me to do. If you have any ideas PLEASE!! l
  11. I'm starting to play around with the GameBrowser plugin, setting up my config as indicated in the online guid (https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/16380-gamebrowser-guide/) Everything runs good except that the metadata are not stored along with the game files in their respective folders. I suspect I did not indicate I wanted this behavior on my first GameBrowser scan, so that the metadata are stored in the Emby folder instead and are stuck there. In other thoughts and/or solution?
  12. Not sure whether this belongs in Theater or Plugins forum, but since it appears to be a flaw with Theater itself, I'm placing it here. I'm unable to select a "System" type in the external player menu to enable games playback. The issue appears to be identical to the one encountered here: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/38265-game-systems-not-working/ I've configured the Gamebrowser server plug-in according to the tutorial and have used it properly on this system in the past. I have two different Windows 10 PCs - my desktop and my HTPC, both running Emby Theater. Both PCs are usi

    Gamebrowser file detection

    So I'm having a bit of a problem here. some systems and games are not being detected by gamebrowser. I have NES and SNES setup and working correctly. the folder structure for all of my games is like this \\server\games\system name\game name\game name.zip I have all of my games in zip files to save space and my front end takes care of the extraction prior to launch. this adds a bit of load time when launching a title, but I'm trying to save space. Gamebrowser does great on detecting zip files on certain systems like NES and SNES, but other systems it ignores zip files completely. I end
  14. Hi, vielleicht hat von Euch jemand ne Idee denn ich gebe so langsam auf. Ich habe einige PS2 Isos auf meinem Emby Server liegen. Habe das Verzeichnis dem Browser als PS2 zugeordnet und auch den Netzwerkpfad so angegeben wie bei meinen Filmen/Serien/Musik. Im Theater habe ich den PS2 Emulator so eingestellt: Player Path: C:\Program Files (x86)\PCSX2 1.4.0\pcsx2.exe Gamesystem : Sony Playstation 2 Arguments : --nogui --fullscreen {PATH} Im Theater bekomme ich meine Games auch alle schön angezeigt aber wenn ich ein Game öffnet um es zu starten gibts keinen Play Button.

  15. I was looking at trying to set up gamebrowser to work under Emby, preferably under WMC but Theatre too. I just wanted to start very simple basically just run Windows Games, no emulators or anything. I think I'm like 90% there just missing that last little bit. I was following the guide I found here to set it up on the Emby Server and for the Classic Install: https://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/16380-gamebrowser-guide/ So now when I launch Emby for WMC and Theatre I get my GAMES tab with the two games I manually added for testing purpose, as you can see below:
  16. OK so I am really stuck, I have been using media browser and gamebrowser for years now and love it. I finally thought it was time to upgrade to media browser 3 but now I can’t get gamebrowser working at all. I have been through the tutorial and I am pretty sure I have done everything right. I have also been though the forum and found no answer to my problems. First I wanted to use media browser classic for went though the set up for that. I have got it to the point where i can see the all my games but I get an error when i try and run them. "An unknown error prevented this game from launching
  17. Hi, I have Emby Theater installed on Windows (7) HTPC, and gamebrwoeser installed as a server plugin: Game directory i set up as per instructions Gamebrowser platforms are all set up Game library is accessible and scanned as part of media library External players set up for all platforms with the {path} and options as described in the forum elsewhere with the appropriate command line options for each I have two issues: 1. When trying to hit "play" on the game screen, I get a spinner and nothing else, no error, and no emulator, it just spins and then eventually gives up. I've changed t

    GameBrowser Metadata

    I recently set up GameBrowser III on my server and noticed the metadata that is collected when auto-scanned is nearly completely missing. I've noticed several posts on the forums where people complain that a large majority of their titles are not found. Another thing I've noticed is that for me, the initial scan couldn't find any of my sample NES roms that I put in the proper directories, even very obvious/popular ones like Super Mario Bros 1, 2, 3 and The Legend of Zelda. However, if I manually went into each title and clicked the "Identify" button, I could then make a selection and the c

    Gamebrowser Emulator Switches

    I just went through the laborious process of setting up Gamebrowser and MB Classic and thought I'd share the switch commands I used so others can avoid the pain. VirtuaNES switch (NES) "{rom}" ZSNES Switch (SNES) -m "{rom}" NullDC Switch (Dreamcast) -config ImageReader:DefaultImage="{rom}" pcsx2 Switch (PS2) --nogui --fullscreen "{rom}" Dolphin Switch (Wii & Gamecube) --exec="{rom}" Fusion Switch (Sega) -fullscreen "{rom}" ePSXe Switch (PSX) -nogui -loadbin "{rom}" Hope this helps others.
  20. Hello, I'm new to Emby/MediaBrowser/GameBrowser. I'm still trying things out and so far everything has worked quite well. I found this post showing how to manually edit the GameBrowser.xml file to set up the consoles (as it appears the old method of editing it no longer works): http://emby.media/community/index.php?/topic/17852-gamebrowser-guide-mb-classic-setup-read-this/ The problem is that the file in that post appears to be incomplete not showing examples of all of the consoles or more importantly in my case how to launch a PC game. Would anyone be willing to post a complete GameB
  21. Ever since I installed GameBrowser III my game genres have always been listed without posters. I have gone to the web interface, found the genre listed in the game description, clicked it, saw the Platform games listed below, and edited the images from http://localhost:8096/web/itemdetails.html?gamegenre=Platform, but the image I choose Do NOT show up in Emby for Windows Media Center. I left it like that until recently when my game genres were no longer listed at all. I have server 3.0.5986.0 After some research and testing I discovered that if I go to Reports, choose games, and change to
  22. Can we have .cue support added for Sega CD, please? The server is picking up the .bin files just fine but Sega CD requires the cue for games that contain tracks such as .wav, .mp3 etc.

    Fanart site relaunch

    So, what started as a quick update to download links turned into a full out redesign. Honestly the problem with my page previously was I just had too friggin many images on it so it was slooooow as can be to load. I've streamlined the entire site removing off older mediabrowser related items, cut the images down to only samples, and changed the disparity links to my onedrive for downloading. The benefit with onedrive is every time I upload a new image for disparity you can just use the same link on my site to grab the new ones. Previously I had to re-upload an entire rar file with all the imag
  24. While I know that the focus for GameBrowser as a plugin is to connect an MB client to a local emulator, I would like a way to add Game Platforms and games from the server side that are not necessarily emulated or playable from a client. For example, I would like to be able to add our PlayStation 3 collection to MediaBrowser. Not only would this enable MB users to catalog and show their entire collection, but would enable users to tap into the metadata scraping capabilities. There might have to be some disclaimer or visual indicator that the game is not playable from a client, or maybe would no
