I would love to see a free download for an Amiga launcher one day. Perhaps it could use AROS? I'm not that knowledgeable about the copyright stuff, too bad that seems to be a problem. An easy launcher would save me the trouble of rewriting my game code (which I plan to do one day, but first I finish the Amiga version). Then again, I might go straight to Java for that.

Anyway, good luck!

I second that, I can't exit the launcher and I get a "Adobe flash player is not installed" message when I click on Games?

Hi Arnie....

Strange you cant exit the launcher what os do you have.....as for the Adobeflash warning just install the latest version from adobe and that should rectify that.

I'm using Widows 7 and I already have Adobe Flash player 10.3.183.7 installed. Do I need ActiveX?

Hi Synchro, the C64xLauncher works ok. I tried starting the AmigaLauncher with admin privileges but it still wont exit. Pressing left alt and escape brings up the taskbar but I still can't close the window.

Edit: Can exit if I click on Exit and then click on the pull down menu on the upper right hand corner?

No worries mate...Like i said for a second there to my surprise thought you were right !!.....
But once reading through the lot properly i realised it was not the case but it looks to me EAB's rules are giving enough leaway to stay just on the borderline...
I would rather have the CD32 games available for access than not be there at all...In fact anything they can get away with is fine by me

As for a big deal about things you saw it as you saw it and there are some forums i know of you would be absolutly correct..

I will look into the netbook thing see exactly whats going on later today...i have one here now to try

Ok thats just weird!! ...Especially if the c64 version works...Gonna have to let me think on that one ?

Just a stab in the dark here......Your from earth right and have one of our PC's

Ahh, I see, a demo, got it now

I think there is something not right with my Windows 7 so I wouldn't worry about it too much

My fave games are Ruffian, Superfrog, DeluxePacman, Flashback, AnotherWorld & AB3D to name a few.

Ok who wants to try this workable demo...20 pages but more games than you think....IE launch alien breed and you get to chose which game from the whole Alien Breed collection !!

F12 is config and Quit from the game...

Still W.I.P though dont forget.

If you want to try it your gonna have to PM me your Emails and i will Email you a link from myself Not Via PM
A bit long winded i know but this way there should be no problems

NOTE !! There is a slight delay when executing a game so give it a second....Im working on a loading messege within the menu

OK, liking it so far, would it be possible to have 1 page with a list of thumbnails so you could just poit and click as well? Sort of an "All Games" page..... the reason, you have to scroll all the way along the list to play certain games, fair enough no problem here, just thinking out loud for possible complete newbs.
