Would be cool if someone made one of these game launchers for Amiga (for, not of). While there's restrictions as to what systems are available (assuming 68k) there's still some good options. MagiC64 is pretty decent for '040 upwards, speccy is well covered, TRS-80, Amstrad CPC, Gameboy, BBC, master system, nes, apple2 and a few others. UAE/Amithlon systems also provide potential for snes,megadrive,neogeo,atari st, archimedes, and probably a few others.

I appologize if Ive already typed something to this effect earlier in the thread. Ive been thinking about it for a while everytime I see this thread on the main page, so it's not impossible Ive already written it and forgotten

The idea is good but i can see that others like c64 and speccy etc launchers are to emulate those machines on an Amiga so its unlikely someone will make an Amiga emulator for an Amiga but i know thats " NOT " what your talking about.

You mean a front end for launching Amiga games on workbench which is a very good idea...I will have a look into it to see what can be done ?

Good idea you could make it boot WHLoad games to make it easer.but how would you go about making one maybe using amos maybe..you wouldn't be able to use the launchers they are made for windows only...???..:S
