Sharing iGame "gamelist" Files?

Hi all!

TinyLauncher is great but I like also iGame because it is MUI and more "Workbench"

But, with iGame, WHDLoad games appear at first in the "--Show All--" category and it seems that I have to categorise them myself one by one...

So, I wonder if we can share "gamelist" files? The file that store the names, paths, and categories of the game? Of course the main path will change but fixing it is just a matter of search/replace while sorting each game by category certainly could take hours

What do you think?

Also, I see on some screenshot that games can of "covers" but where should these covers be and in which format?

Cheers!

The files certainly could be shared, but you'd also want to be able to share and merge the genres files as well.

As for "covers" that are shown in the app, this is either an "iGame.iff" file in the game's directory (despite the name it can be any format for which you have an installed datatype) or an icon matching the name of the WHDLoad slave for the game (right now there's no support for icon for a non-slave).

ive tried a few launchers so far since getting an Amiga back at beginning of 2019 , iGame,Tinylauncher , AGS and another i cant remmeber , and tbh im not overly keen on any of them, i tend to just browse via the folders on my whdload drive.

Maybe just me but iGame seems really slow, even with an 030 and 64mb fast..

Hi coldacid and xubidoo!

Thanks @coldacid Would you have these files (gamelist, genres, and even cover files) to share?

Cheers!

@tygre: I've only got a few games where I use a custom image instead of the icon image, so I'm not sure that they'd be of much use. Likewise, my genres file is almost stock -- I've only added "Artillery" and "Dungeon crawl" to it, and haven't removed any genres.

I also have plenty of games which I never categorized into genres, but I can at least copy and paste out of my gameslist file the ones that I did. I'm not including the "favorite", "hidden", or stats properties, though.

Ciao tygre, about the screenshots you can find them on Aminet , I enclose some links, ijn one you can also find the gameslist !

http://aminet.net/package/game/misc/...game_eab_games

http://aminet.net/package/game/misc/...ckTroelsDK.lha

I think you're using the latest version of iGame v.2.0b4

The screenshots all have the same name "igame.iff" and must be copied into their respective game folders where you can find the game and slave data.

IGame will scan the "Scan repositor" to create the "Gameslist" you must first set the Games path in the "Game repositories".

Important ! The "Scan repositor" will only detect the complete Game folders, the other "no game" folders will be ignored even if "igame.iff" is present.

To create the "Gameslist" by category you could use a simple trick, for example if you want to create the "Gameslist" for the "Action" games, copy only the "Action" games to the Game path and with "Scan repositor" create the gameslist targeting the list "Action".

Once this is done, move the Games "Action" other place on HD add the Games of another category, finished repeat for all categories.

At the end put all the games back in the Games folder and each game will be in the right item.
