It includes automated import processes for your MS-DOS games, ROM files, and Steam in order to help get you up and running as quickly as possible. Game box-art and metadata are automatically downloaded from the Games Database, a community-based online database that allows anyone to contribute.
It supports arranging and filtering by genre, platform, ESRB rating, developer, publisher, and much more, and even has custom status and source fields to use to classify your games however you choose. LaunchBox’s interface is incredibly easy to use and powerful all at the same time.
Not only does LaunchBox automatically download the box art for your games, but it also grabs beautiful fanart, screenshots, logos, and more, creating a surprisingly immersive experience. Fanart and other images can be used as the app’s background as you browse your games, which really helps to create an attractive, fun experience.
