I have a setup with launchbox/big box where i open rom files with an emulator (like settings a default app for a file type and running it) and i noticed that when i launch, for example, super mario 64, the achievements dont load up. they only load up, if i open a rom file directly from within the RAProject64. Is this a bug or a feature? Might be switching to parallel64 for now.

I've got the same issue, I think we're missing some sort of commandline parameter here. Does parallel64 support achievements and launch from launchbox?

i've thought of a workaround for this issue. you can add an ahk script for an emulator in launchbox to relaunch (not restart) the game. here the script:

; keep this
sleep, 7500 ; how long it takes for a game to launch and go fullscreen (1000=1 second)
; keep this

; if you dont have the "go fullscreen on start" option ON, delete these lines
send, !{enter}
sleep, 500 ; how long it takes for a game to go from fullscreen to windowed by pressing alt+enter (1000=1 second)
; if you dont have the "go fullscreen on start" option ON, delete these lines

; keep this
send, {alt}
sleep, 50
send {down}
sleep, 50
send 1
ExitApp
; keep this

if you need, i made a tutorial video:
