Smile JAmiga - A frontend for WinUAE

JAmiga is a frontend for WinUAE which is based on the configuration files from WinUAE (no database needed).
It features screenshots, rating and a musicplayer.
Look at 'JAmiga.txt' for further information.

The current version is what I wanted it to be, but if you want other features or enhancements leave a comment in this thread.
Also comments about the program are very welcome .

You need the .Net Framework 2.0 which can be found here.

Hope you like it

Ideas for next release :
Button for 'Setup configuration' similar to quickstart in WinUAE. (thanks to musashi5150 for this idea ) (delayed, but not forgotten )
Additional window for the WinUAE extra info files (thanks to kirk)

This should be integrated in WinUAE. Maybe you should put it forward as a suggestion as a future development of WinUAE...

Hi Ted,

Toni already stated that WinUAE is no game/demo/app frontend. It's an emulator for the Amiga. So my program is a addition for those people (like me ) that like to have a picture and music for the configs they made. Since Gamebase (which is a great project) requests the right version in the right format for a game, I think it's nice to have alternative for those people that set up their configs themself, but still want that bit extra stuff .

Btw. : How do you like it?

Please keep up the good work.

Hi wobbly,

I'm running 32 bit here. Maybe I compiled it with a wrong (32 bit specific) setting. Will have a look at it this evening and will upload a new version if that was the problem.

Hi TheCyberDruid,
I'm still using your frontend with success. My brain are thinking about ideas, but you made the program with the features I've been looking for. At the moment I have none. I will let you know the moment I have somthing.

Hi AxelFoley,

that's good to hear . As I said it's also enough for me .
I'm currently working on the x64 issue and the setup config thing. Guess it will take till the end of month to release version 1.1.

You rebel! Develop something in .NET and then call it JAmiga!

(apps starting with a J are usually Java apps )

As for the 32 bits issue, a 64 bits OS should be able to run 32 bits apps no problem at all. It is when you compile the code for 64 bits systems that problems may arise.

@gimbal
Yeah I know , but since my first name starts with 'J' we got this naming convention break-up. Done some stuff in Java and it's really nice. In my job I have to deal with a lot of Plugin/API stuff (for windows), so .Net is first choice. And besides; I first met Java and as I saw C# I thought : Man, just another M$ ripoff


@All
Made a executable that should be 64 Bit compatible. Can anybody test it for me?

Hi wobbly,

I think I found the soultion. The fmodex.dll is only for x86 platforms. I've added the x64 version to the first thread. I don't know if works without modifications to the exe, but it's worth a try

Wow, it's been a while Yeah, I'm a lazy mofo, I know that

On request of kirk I've added the option to change the font and the colors of the list. Could look like this then :



I will look at the extra info thing tomorrow, but guess that will take a bit more time

P.S. : Use the context menu (right click) to change the settings.

Hi Axel,

sorry that it has taken so long. I struggled with the 'setup configuration' feature for quite a while before I put it to a rest. It's almost done, but there's one thing I need to get sorted (besides the annoying x64 bug ). Next feature will be to support more columns, but that needs a partial rewrite of the code, so that might take a bit.
