C64 Launcher Re-vamp

Giving the C64 Arcade Launcher a Re-vamp...
How does this look for the new main menu ?
Been playing with it most of the day so hopefully its looking a little more interesting
and brings it more inline with the Amiga Arcade Launcher..

Depends on your monitor...No two are the same...even using exact colour codes wouldnt help....on mine its close...but when it comes to menus, Websites you can only use RGB as a rough guide....If they were flyers then the printers would ask for the codes to get it exact...

Yep, it will be, although I would change the color and shape of the keys (breadbox style) as Methanoid said.

Just like (the photo) the C=64 where I'm writting now...



They don't look the same, at least they should be more separated, and they aren't vertical on their sides, but just my opinion.

Edit: Another game to add: Project Firestart [ Show youtube player ]

Yes i belive you did mate and i still have them

But there were a few i just remember were easyflash only.....Like Prince of Persia, Turbo Charge for instance..Retro-Nerd just PM'd me the link again
In fact i if you check the Credit page on the launcher ( if you have it installed ) I put you on there for sending them

Its all finished im just tweaking...I add a game.....I test it....Problem is i then play the bloody thing for an hour or so

I'm at present playing about with the c64 demoscene, some stunning things have came from this machine. Have also tried out "c64 forever" as well and it's basically a front end for Vice. I prefer your easy on the eye frontend.

What would be a rather neat idea is to add a few extra's....

Couple of Vic 20, c128, Pet games and a way to run them from the emulator front end.. but make em hard to find (i.e. Easter Eggs) - just for giggles
