One problem I have come across..
When you scan for your games it finds every folder in there,can you get it so it only shows WHDLoad games cos its picking up my igame fonlders that just has a igame.iff in them so I think I have that game and I don't and it shows it in the list of games.

Tiny Launcher only scan 1 level of directory.
Why? It's not designed to work in the workbench. In ClassicWB files have been classified by letter because it would take too much time for the Workbench to scan all the directories.

At the beginning, it was about putting your favorite small collection of games in a directory, and Tiny Launcher was displaying your directories where a Slave was about to be found. It was only working with 'online scan'. I mean no Database.
So the goal was to scan as quick as possible. I could have checked if a whdload were under the directory but it would have taken more time, because it was designed to work on a 68000 especially the CDTV/A500/A600 (because it's almost impossible to find a quick launcher for those plateform, therefore I have never tried the KillerGorilla ECS launcher, I never managed to make it work).

So, you need to create for example a directory like "ECSGAMES" and put your games in it. like this :

ECSGAMES/Agony
ECSGAMES/ShadowOfTheBeast
ECSGAMES/BattleSquadron

etc...

In the futur I will display the directory only if there's the Slave under but only for the Database, because you don't update it everytime.

Ok that's cool whatever you want to do,its your baby and I love it thanks for what you have done so far.
I have put my games in ECS folder already I was going to do a AGA one but most of them won't work cos of memory but there are some folders with igame.iff in there only that's why I posted about it. I am trying to removing them but its taking so long to do.

I have but I copied them into the A-Z folders originally and then moved them to the ECS folder for Tiny Launcher but move igame folders too you see.If you look in the A-Z folders there have game folders in them already but only with igame.iff in them.

I don't know if there is a TL2.1 comming but I am hoping there is cos I tried the up on controller where it comes up with 0to9 ABCDEFGHIJ and so on at the top of the screen and you press on say "N" and it comes up with games beginning with "L" that's must be a bug cos I do have games beginning with "N"... weird..???

@magnetic no. My mailbox is small. As I want to keep my messages each time I erase 1 or 2 messages.

@Spanner
Yes it's a bug, it also happen to me. I'm going to fix that.

@gibs: btw, can you make youtube video in free time at which you use FastNav feature under Tiny Launcher and WinUAE on keyboard and show it slowly by some extrenal camera? Because maybe I'm dumb, but I still cannot use this feature with method, which you described some post above when you replied me. Holding up direction does not react ;/
