Back in December 2020 Arcade Punks Compiled CP78s Complete Play, a BigBox/Launchbox build that has taken Colpipes months and months of painstaking work to get to where it currently is – and it looks like its one of the most SOLID fully loaded PC Builds to grace our presence. Here we stand just 3 months later with Part 5 of this awesome build!
You really should have a Big Box license to run this, it looks SO much better, but you can of course, keep it all loaded in Launchbox – once again we reached out to the developers of Launchbox to try and get some discounted licenses to no avail (Sorry!).
PLAYSTATION 2 (UPDATES 2.1.1 & 2.1.2)
- Added Massive Amounts of ROMs
- Fixed lots of media (including the upside down videos!)
IMPORTANT- Files are .gz format which mean they are compressed iso’s. On first boot larger games may take longer to load and give an error in RocketLauncher. If this happens close down the emulator and retry the game. This should only happen on the first loading of the game!
Note- It is recommended that you have a CPU that is compatible with GSdx32-AVX2. If you don’t then you can change the Plugin settings by opening up the emulator and click on the Config Tab/ Plugins & Bios and change it from there.
Open up PCSX2 located here: R:\Emulators\PCSX2 1.7.0. Click on Config/ Controllers/ Plugin & settings and set controls there.
Each game can use their own config files. I have included the ones I use in the Game Configs folder with in the Emulator folder. (there in a zip file and need to be unzipped).
By default, there are no enhancements, upscaling or hacks enabled as these often depend on individual systems specs.
To set your own first run RocketLauncherUI.exe located here: R:\RocketLauncher\RocketLauncherUI. Click PlayStation 2 on the left pain, Settings Tab and the Bezel Tab and change the settings for Bezel to false. (This turns off the bezel)
Complete Play Base 1.11
Added 17 games to Sega CD with complete media
Fixed Sega Master System to display correct bezel
Added Utilities to convert disc image to CHD tools
Nintendo Entertainment System HD
Added NES HD platform with complete media
You need to set the controls in Messen. Open up Messen located here R:\Emulators\ Messen. Click on Tools and Input and change controls there.
Added Panasonic 3DO platform complete with media
Pres F1 when in game and navigate to controls. Set controls for the players you want then save controls to the core/game .
At present there is an issue with loading 2nd, 3rd and 4th discs. When the game asks you to put in another disk , Pres F1 to go to the Ra menu and load new content.
This is the 5th Pack and there will be more on the way!

NOTES AND SET UPS
- Extract to the root of drive R:\
- There is a COMPLETE PDF to download for changing controls/emulators and more – download that HERE
- Use WINRAR to extract
- If you don’t choose to use NZB (Usenet) and want to torrent this then use TIXATI this one of the few torrent clients able to handle larger chunks – the amount of people who complain about speed and skip this very useful advice!!!
Complete Play is designed to have complete rom-sets and media (Clear Logo/ Wheel, 3D box, disc/cart and video/ snap at least) for every platform.
Complete Play wherever possible runs without RocketLauncher however, there are number of systems that still require it. These Systems are: Â American Laser Games, Daphne, Capcom Play System III, Sammyâ€™s Atomiswave, Sega Model 2, Sega Model 3 and Sega Triforce.
The Theme used here is Retro Console by Cemfundog but I have included a number of top themes for you to use and you can even have different themes for different platforms.
Hopefully you will get as much fun from playing retro games as I do. My aim has always been to bring people and families together for their love of games and especially Retro Games! Complete Play is a 35 platform build with nearly 7500 of games from 1970s to the present day. Updates and patches will be released once media is complete but this is a painstakingly long process. These updates will be platform based and complete.

Available on TORRENT or NZB (Usenet) – Highly advise using USENET to download this, it’ll come SCREAMING down your line if you use one of our approved UseNet suppliers – see this page for more information. Note if your usenet (nzb) client is claiming there is a password then you need to use a different client – we DO NOT share password protected archives unless otherwise informed.
PROBLEM DOWNLOADING THE TORRENT? This is a big download and some torrent clients may report unsupported torrent type, use TIXATI as your torrent download client as it will read the bigger chunks. Even if you don’t get an error, Tixati will grab bigger chunks and in most cases you will notice faster speeds!
