I know, but if the drive which contains the mods doesn't show up in xplorer, I can't, can I

So if you build a WHDLoad list in the Settings, then choose which executable you want for that particular list. Defaults to "c:whdload" but you can override to whatever you want with a requester.
Ok for me. I'll add this feature in a future release as this.

You've made a great job. Can i include this pictures packs in xbench ? And if yes who should be credited for the work ?

I need to buy a new CF card for my CD32 first. thanx

I just converted them, the original work was done by cyberhead97 here on EAB, you should ask him about it.
The original image links:
http://aminet.net/package/game/misc/...game_eab_demos
http://aminet.net/package/game/misc/...game_eab_games
Links include a contact email for him.

If he allows it I don't mind of course, as I said I just converted them and renamed them with a script, not much work really.

Let me know whenever you want my CF image if it would help you out testing.

Ok just checked. Your issue come from BetterWB that is changing some system files. I'll try to fix this issue for the next release by writting things differently.

Thanks so much for checking!! Is there something I can disable in the startup-sequence, or remove a library to get it working again quickly?

Here is the work in progress future xplorer.exe : http://www.jimneray.com/download/xplorerfix.lha

Simply extract the lha and replace the existing xplorer.exe in your install by this one.

- Fix the BetterWB devices listing issue.
- Fix a mistake that was allowing user to load anything as an xb audio playlist.
- Partial implementation of the notification center.

Cheers

Thanks for the internal update!
I'm sorry, I didn't test thoroughly enough, the explorer still doesn't fully work.

It lists all drives correctly.
I can enter a drive by doubleclicking and it will show the root dirlist
I cannot enter a drawer. Doubleclicking a drawer does nothing

BTW how do the tooltypes work. Does it look at the .info file everytime it runs a WHDLoad slave? Or does it creat the .tooltype files at scan and only uses that. Meaning that my work updating all the tooltypes in the info files was for nothing (if I don't want to re scan screwing up my tidied list).

Another update.

- I did a rescan anyway to get my updated tooltypes to work
- I can't get the mods to run randomly. I believe in earlier versions it would run a random mod of the playlist, now it always starts with the first :/ I still want it random
- There are some artifacts with the info pane next to the screenshots. Text from lower lines is not cleared completely on next entry, see below screenshots:

Screenshot 2 shows letter "s" from word players of screenshot 1
Screenshot 4 shows "enabled" from "Trainer enabled" from screenshot 3

I can confirm, no way to make it play a random tune, it would be best if it does. I always get the same tune on my self-made playlist.

The tooltypes are scanned when you update a listing. A single file is created (or updated) for each game tooltypes. This file is stored in the whdload game dir. So updating the tooltypes in the info file of a game will not work if you don't update the listing. This is now done as this to spend less time when launching a game.

Installed latest beta, but sadly the time for the WHDLoad splash screen is still not configurable. You promised this for the last X-Mas version, waiting now 2 years for it?

Thanks a lot for the new beta from a couple of months ago, Jim. Unfortunately I haven't had time yet to test it out. Hope to do that soon!

Check Jim's website: http://www.jimneray.com
I think there's more info in the text files included in the free release. It has something to do with the donate button on the website

Sorry to sound like an idiot, but is this an alternative to AG-Launch?

Sort of yes. AG-Launch is Workbench based though if I'm correct. This is a full screen loader you can boot in to straight away. More like Tiny Launcher.

if the button have been released before being pushed.

setup this at ‘No/2s/4s/8s/WAit’. « WAit »‘ll display a box until you
haven’t clicked on the button or used space/return key.
