The newer bootmenus can be seen here:

I'll also add it to the Workbench menus. Obviously KG might want a say in how it's presented also.
@Bloodwych
The new Menu systems look superb, Can't wait to see the updates.
Thank you for your ongoing support & hard work.

@KG

Apart from my 2xA1200 with 030 & 040 upgrades.
I've also got a stock A1200 with HD which I would be very happy to test your new Launcher with.

Nope, not on holiday, just very busy with a new project at work, plus DIY on my house which we're trying to get done before xmas, and my new band has its first gig in 3 weeks which is involving a lot of practice (we've been together as a band for 2 weeks).

I did a bit more work on Monday night which means it's soooo close to having a beta ready, just not sure when I'll get a chance to wrap it up and release it. I have band tonight and tomorrow, then going to watch a gig on friday night... maybe sat/sun but we'll have to see.

Sorry guys! Oh and thanks again for stepping forward, I do appreciate it.

Right...

I've finished the beta.

I need to throw a screenshot pack together, and zip the lot up but that shouldn't take long. If anyone is about to test it at the weekend that'd be fantastic as I have some spare time this weekend and can deal with any questions/problems that this throws up.

I should also have a lot more free time starting next week so would really like a v1.0 out for xmas. Any help is much appreciated.

It is by no means finished, I'm just happy enough to share it at last!

I'll try to upload it tonight/tomorrow night.

Right, the beta is DEFINITELY available starting tonight. Got a free night ahead of me and this missus is out with her mates so it gives me the time to upload it somewhere.

There is currently one known "bug" which I will leave in for now. It's to do with the order in which dirs/files are displayed in the menu (they seem to reshuffle), but this will be solved once I finish the favourites list as I'll need to implement a sort method which will cover both tasks.

Right, here are the links to the beta versions.

Remember, these are beta so anything they do to your computer is not my fault

Also, because they are beta, the games listed in the genre/year categories are not in any way related to the genre/year. They are just there for testing purposes.

There is also only one screenshot/boxart pic included. This beta is more to get a feel of how the menu controls. It will load games but you'll have to add them yourself. The only game included is Ruff N Tumble and it's the only game listed in the Favourites list.

EDIT: Links in first post

You may receive errors when trying to run it from a CD32 because a cd is read only (this will be fixed).

In fact you may get errors anyway I'd appreciate any feedback at all.
I've currently no idea how much RAM it needs, it booted fine with 1MB Chip (0 other mem) in WinUAE but I didn't play about with it much after that.
