Menuf frontend for Amiga games

Have you seen this.

http://www.cling.gu.se/~cl3polof/arcade/ags.html

Thinking of running it on my A1200 since I only play games on it

Useless for me, it uses an aga screen instead of my beautiful CGX desktop therefore works on the second monitor, 1084

Quite so, Burseg. Still, good for peeps without gfx cards. And the author states that future versions will hopefully feature screenmode selection, so I for one will keep an eye on it.

Sounds like a neat idea - a bit like MAME launchers. Wonder why nobody thought of it sooner. Should make letting Matt D`Wrecker fire up games on my Amiga when utterly inebriate a whole lot safer, for one thing.

Sorry, Matt!

Is this for WHDLoad games or what?
Looks FAB for creating an Amiga-powered, dedicated arcade cabinet!!!!!!!

Looks pretty good. I'll be testing it on a CD32 CD I'm burning now.

It has a minor bug though (as far as I can tell):
If you have more than one menu item which first letters match (eg: SWIV and Silkworm) the menu will crash.
I'm naming them "A) SWIV" and "B) Silkworm"

Unlike many of the mame front ends this one supports a joystick/joypad

I'm looking forward to an OCS version but I'm not sure how well the scren shots will look in < 256 colours. Can it be done in HAM6 I wonder?

I think it will work for every executable file available.

The arcade game selector uses shell scripts so theoretically you can write a script to run anything. WHDload games, normal DOS programs, or reboot and run a floppy game.
