I know some games can do this but i can't find one now that i can copy an example from from but how would an iconx script look that can do this so i can simply, double double the icon in workbench and it reboots the system and starts the game.
Game needs no assigns or rubbish, it just runs as a single executable.

IE
c:reboot
dh1:games/o/omegarace/omegarace

hmm, infact, it isn't that simple is it?
You could use Rebootscript from aminet: Link

Place both Runscript and Writescript in C directory, then add Runscript on top of you startup-sequence.

Just launch your program with: Writescript dh1:games/o/omegarace/omegarace

It will reboot the amiga and run the file.
