Thats is for now..all I can think of..

When the new release is ready can you send me the link and I add it to cbm borg asap
Turrican 1 and 3 as well.....I only put T2 on cuz i thought it was thwe best in the series but on....il put them all on one page though so i may do a bit of moving a few games about

Theres a trick to all this you know.....its not just slap games on the menu they have to blend in and look right as well...Its 10 mins to get the games working then an hour making the menu page look good
But its all good fun !!

Is it possible you could make the games run in window mode not fullscreen,my pcs runs COS(Wine) and if has problems with fullscreen...dam wine..

Just changed alien breed to window mode and its fine,the last time I ran it in fullscreen it messed up resolution on COS(Wine) and I had to reinstall it..(You only need to press 2 key combination to go in fullscreen anyway,its something and Enter I think..?)Hope you understand..

Thanks for the great work you are doing,god all the menus you have to make in a art program...(Photoshop)..
If you need any help I be happy too,I have Photoshop so know about pasting and cutting images making artwork,its like one big jigsaw(I make images and stuff for my websites)..

The problem is its they are all arcade launchers for windows really and you cant have an arcade launcher open in a window. Eventually i will put them all together as an "all in one" like Mala or Maximus so they can be used in home made arcade machines. so opening the games in a window isnt really a worthwhile option

I did the C64 vision one for COS and Netbooks specifically and really that became an app rather than an arcade launcher & to be honest more people used it for netbooks rather than COS...But it was still more of an App..

friend, I can think of, because you do not use hotmail skydrive service to upload your launchers? could be by categories and would be a very fast method to easy.
I left you a private message.

No probs..using winxp now and your games launchers work fine on that..

I did ask this already but just incase you missed it synchro..
(This is for c64 game launcher)Can you add BC2 Grog Revenge,the first one was BC Quest for Tires but I don't like that one that much but if you want add that one too,to make it a set its up to you.

Had a idea...????

How about adding the box cover as well,below the cover (you could have a link)you can click on a link saying "more info" and maybe open a web browser to lemon 64 and the page with the game info..
Good idea...not a good idea..??

I think I have a name for your all in one games launcher when it made..

***Emulation Station***

Any good..??

One more thing I wanted to ask was,Why when you run them they have 2 bubbles one with C64 or Amiga on it and the other with Windows on it..(Its the menu before you get to the main one)??

And the only problem with these is you can't add your own games to the menu(But I still like them.. )..

@spannernick

It all started with the C64X launcher....if you popped the desktop icon into your startup directory windows will boot straight to the first menu screen....you can then select windows or C64 mode basicly

I left it in because some people just love thier pc to boot to a choice....
Amiga fans may want to boot to that option....C64 to thiers etc.

The all in one will have the same sort of thing but be able to select any of the launchers or continue into windows ...For a dedicated Arcade PC its kind of cool...

Good idea about a cover il look into that

@msantos...Havent checked my pm's yet il have a read and get back to you
