I think LT should have a website ,it deserves it and somewhere the covers can go,or is this there allready been done..? Where do you get the covers from anyway and what size is each one,not to big I hope..?

Will screenshots be added too..? well you could use screenshot images instead of covers..

I was thinking how about making a cover with a screenshot on it like in the bottom right like picture in picture..???

He has fixed the problem of Tiny Launcher freezing with my PCMCIA 2 Meg card in the slot(TL menu would come up on 2.1 and freeze so you couldn't go to Games,Demos or Mods menu,had to take it out to get TL to work),wow games are loading with no problem now,Playing Alien Breed SE 92,love the game and Full Contact,Worms,Love Team 17 Games,its the only one that has survived,team17.com/ Love Allister Brimble's music GREAT.. Thanks Micheal.

Sorry if i sound over excited.. but I like Michael Gibs stuff he makes,you should all use his Amiga Boot Selector,I use it all the time to boot Workbench from HD,Tiny Launcher 3.4,CD200 for CD32 and other isos it can boot too using the Amiga CD32 emulator startup seq from the Floppy I have,I edited it to work with it,so you can boot CD32 games from ABS.it can boot any iso so if you have a CD but no CD drive and it don't have CD music on it only data you can copy it with ImgBurn as a iso then copy to your hard drive and then add it to ABS so it can boot it,only if its boot able,if it has Workbench on it then it will boot Workbench for the CD..

You can use games with isos and mp3 or wav but only use the iso. just works without the music in the game.It does work with Simon but no save option but thats down to the CD32 emu.
If anyone needs help setting it up just ask and I be happy to help,just look for on Aminet.Need to copy it to my A600 next.

No-one else had asked this but i thought i'd share.

Press "H" while something is highlighted is how you add/remove a title from favourites.
EDIT: Actually, i press A for add game and found it didn't add it to favourites, back to the drawing board.

Also, coverart will work for Demos, but is always forgotten about I'll port my igame demos screenies across

Tried latest tinylauncher from aminet and can't add any title to favorites. The launcher is great anyway but would be great to solve this.

Something has happened at Aminet. It shows an old version (2.1) as recent, while the one yesterday was 3.51

... And it works like a charm. Congratulations to Gibs the master

The only "thing" I found is that if you forgot to include the kickstarts (like it happened to me) and you click to launch a game, then it won't tell anything, it will just return to TL. But that's not a major problem of course.

For those who wonder why the A = add favorites key doesn't work. Obviously Gibs uses a French keyboard. So it's the "Q" key then for English/German keyboard layout.

Thanks to StatMat for those covers and screenshots. It looks awesome having those in the TinyLauncher.

I installed the latest version (3.51) of TinyLauncher. It appears the P key is not working on my system. I can't change the screen usage to using the full screen. The bottom part of the screen remains unused.

Does anyone else have this issue?

Just tested, it works really well

Where can I find the preview images of games (and possibly demos) to install in the path indicated by TinyLauncher?

Does anybody run TL from WB clicking on an icon? (for example saving the icon as Tool in the info file). If so, have you tried to add TL to any dock, like for example AmiDock? It crashes the system after starting it from there, run some mod, close it and start it again. Make it three times and it crashes here.

EDIT: Problem solved increasing the stack Edit: No, it isn't.

It looks like there is a problem with SaferPatches by ThoR.

... It "only" has taked me two weeks to find out where the problem was after trying just a couple of zillion things.

... And in the other hand, AGS2 seems to need SaferPatches to run right

Is there a particular key to press in order to see previews .iff?
